Right after I find the Neo Boys on the free blogs, it gets reisssued. I remember it having a great cover.

@Cecile: It's pretty deluxe-y: two discs with live and demos!

Deluxey morning, y'allses.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 9:56am Cecile:

Sounds awesome.
You should check out the Mind & Matter disc, and not just because I worked with one of the singers's wives. Great early Jimmy Jam stuff.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 9:56am tim from champaign:

Hey Joe and the McGs.

Mississippi did the vinyl version of the Neo Boys re-issue.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:00am Cecile:

ugh, all the bloggy links don't show up any more. I should have grabbed that cover while I had the chance.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:01am Cecile:

Oh, der. It was as different Portland woman band. I feel dopey. And i can't remember their name!
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:01am herb.nyc:

i like this, a bunch of women singing. there's something to be said for the feminine side (and by coincidence, i read a 1act play by DAVID IVES last night, called "the red address" & a macho businessman likes to put on women's clothes.). oh, great band name INSTANT MUSIC.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:01am Joe McG:

Hey, tim! @Cecile: That's OK. Let us know later on if it comes to mind!

Of course, Bryce had to put something completely awesome on his premium and I didn't order it. D'oh!

Cool, Cecile!
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:06am Jeezy:

Although I suppose one could consider the entire show an indirect Lou tribute since much of this would probably not exist as is without him.. Ah right gotcha, Joe..
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:09am Joe McG:

Good point, Jeezy.

Great show Joe. Just star-clicked this Pikelet song.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:10am Cecile:

You could play some Easybeats. Lou loved that band, from all accounts.

But Van never tore up paper bags on his records, as far as I know.

I hear the trucks. Also hear trucks here.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:36am Joe McG:

You guys like the trucks or should I close the door? It must sound like I'm doing a remote from a loading dock.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:36am Guido (Cologne):

I waited for that particular song among all the Lou & VU-memories ... even though he doesn't sing on it.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:36am northguineahills:

I dig the trucks. wish they were louder.
Avatar Thu. 10/31/13 10:37am Green Mountain Man Mark:

I like the trucks. Go outside and do that horn asking gesture with your fist and arm to make them blow the horn.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:37am Joe McG:

@Guido: Early composition and a good one, I think!

That is an insult in Australian slang.

Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:39am Guido (Cologne):

Great singe ... on of my all time faves ...... don't remember who avtually sang.
Kind of "unknown Rightous Bothers" I guess.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:39am Ike:

I know the trucks seem loud to the DJs in the studio, but to us, they're pretty quiet. Most of that ambient rattle and hum doesn't come through. I like it -- what little of it I can hear.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:42am Guido (Cologne):

... cover-version by Spiritualized is also worth checking.
And The Sick Rose from Italy did a good version.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:42am Joe McG:

@Ike: Great, a little ambient noise is good. @Cecile: It means "Idiots," doesn't it?
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:43am Jim Price:

Hi Joe! Good choice with the Drongos. Wonder how many DJs will play the Shaggs "it's Holloween" today?
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:43am Joe McG:

Hey, Jim! Oh, all of them, I think!
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:44am Michele:

I forgot about it, but thanks!

@Michele: I get absurdly nervous!
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:48am Cecile:

It's a little worse. It's like using "dumbass" over here.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:49am Cecile:

I got called on it when I was a kid using it every five minutes down there. hahahaha
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:50am Joe McG:

@Cecile: I'm going to start using it when I drive instead of my usual choice words.

hahahahahha, sounds good.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 10:51am Cecile:

I have to say about the Specials.
In my eyes, they might have been one of the greatest bands, period.

Joe, if you were mistaken for Jonesy then you should play the bagpipes more often. I imagine Jonesy receives some "perks of the industry" as they say.

It's my Span antenna, Cecile! I have no control over it. And Tam Lin's a great one too.

... most internationally successful German single before Autobahn?
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:24am Joe McG:

@Guido: That may be true. I know it was Top 10 everywhere except here.

Wow, this is her 1st album after leaving Mr. Fox. Haven't heard this since, well, '73.

Joe, if you play the Eagles Witchy Woman I'll never forgive you.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:28am Carmichael:

Wow, you're dredging up the UK country music scene quite nicely, Joe. Will there be some Home Service or Bothy Band?
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:29am Joe McG:

Hey, Kelly! You can interrupt anybody anytime you like! @12539: Don't worry!

@Jeezy: Pshaw on Allmusic. This is a great album.

Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:30am Guido (Cologne):

... not in the US?
Didn't know ...
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:31am Cecile:

Allmusic has its issues, for sure.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:31am Joe McG:

@dale: Lucky! I don't have that one. Have all the Mr. Fox and this solo LP by Carolanne.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:31am Carmichael:

Seriously, AllMusic dissed Mark Fry? They can suck it.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:33am Jeezy:

They really are hit and miss, to say the least.

just googled it - 71! much earlier than i thought. i bought it new in 77 anyway. maybe i can use my wife's awful ion turntable and rip it.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:34am Cecile:

they are never updated that well either if it's not a big mainstream or cult band.
RuPaul apparently did NOTHING after 2006 except for put out three more CDs.

Has anyone seen Brian Auger Trinity recently on stage?
His daughter on vocals, his son on drums.
Good sense of humour.
And they really grooooove !!

when dig AMG become useless for searching compositions? I was trying to search for other versions of Michael Hurley's "werewolf" earlier, and it was impossible.

@Joe: hello Joe. @Carmichael, if that's the case then does every nation have one Chris Christie?
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:39am dale:

actually quite a few posts on youtube from that album mr. deejay. probably cleaner than i would make. possibly grab them from there. they sound like ian and sylvia, actually. her voice didn't develop into that banshee quaver yet that makes her solo album so good.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:39am Joe McG:

@Cecile: It was between this, that one, and Sam Gopal. I like this one best.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:39am KP:

i went to see Eric Burden out in Hamptons. They were selling CDs before set. i asked the guy if they had the one with Brian Auger, recorded right there at Stephen Talkhouse. He saidno. i said are sure, ive seen it. No Brian Auger! Are you sure, YES NO BRIAN AUGER. So i bought a couple of others. The show started. The keyboard player was the salesman.

@Joe "community powered radio" in DC. a euphemism for "pirate," which also means it reaches like a 2-block radius in the hip part of town. no stream because we have terrible internet and are actually more terrified of soundexchange than we are of the feds.
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:49am Joe McG:

@Mike: The important thing is that you are making that 2-blocks the coolest neighborhood in D.C. Great to hear it, my friend.

@Carmichael and by they, do you mean SoundExchange, coming for their royalties? it really worries me!
Avatar    Thu. 10/31/13 11:52am Mike Noble:

@Carmichael: I do podcast actually, but I literally have single digit subscribers, so I don't think I have anything to worry about yet. Except worry about losing my sanity over constantly screaming into the vacuum. I'm also a half-dozen episodes behind on updating the thing.

@Brian - the Rounders version with Pete's solo acapella, yeah. Hurley sang it himself on his Folkways debut (which I only learned about today) and on 1970's Armchair Boogie.
