Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

SOme 1990's dance techno band did a cover of that Elton John song. I never knew it saw "Grey Seal". I thought is was "Graciele" like a woman's name, that we do not have in the US.
Avatar Fri. 6/27/14 12:18pm Lane Steelpicker:

I've noticed NOBODY retains the intensity of their youthful playing. They may get better, but something gets lost as they mature (the Reggie Dwight brought that to mind, but I type slow since I'm driving)

He really does, Goyim. But...well...we're going deep catalog today. Who are we to judge a small boy?

Exception to the rule, Lane Steelpicker? Nina Simone?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/27/14 12:20pm Stevel:

Dean: My first exposure to TH was via More Songs... The experience was similar yours on '77, having heard Take Me To The River and not hearing that on the rest of the album. Still, I'd keep playing what I bought and it grew on me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/27/14 12:20pm tikk:

was wondering how you were going to smoothly transition out of Real Me--impressive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/27/14 12:20pm Uncle Michael:

Interesting idea, lane. I hear that said of songwriters but not often about players. I'd have to think about that.
  Fri. 6/27/14 12:21pm Dean:

I think my displeasure with TH was part of a larger, uh, transformation. I wearied of rock as the '80s commenced. I love, love, love Byrne & Eno's Bush of Ghosts, but can barely stomach anything else from either of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/27/14 12:22pm Goyim in the AM:

There are times when I wish there had been a marital crisis in the Talking Heads rhythm section around, oh, Fear of Music or so, and I were a strong-shouldered bass tech ready to pick up the pieces.
  Fri. 6/27/14 12:22pm Dean:

Still dig "Love Goes to a Building on Fire," though.
Avatar Fri. 6/27/14 12:23pm Lane Steelpicker:

Dean, I think even Nina lost a reckless edge. But she never had it like Elton, Buck, nearly every player, or especially Paycheck. He wasn't worth a damn after 71
  Fri. 6/27/14 12:24pm Dean:

Buck Owens? Geez, yeah. That early stuff is rowdy!
Avatar Fri. 6/27/14 12:25pm still b/p:

In '77 or '78, I put 5 tracks from TH '77 on a mix tape, or bigger chunks tape, along with most of Countdown to Ecstasy, several Abraxas tracks, and five from Pousette Dart's Amnesia. That cassette is in my hand. Am I Time Capsule King today (after Uncle Michael)?
  Fri. 6/27/14 12:26pm Dean:

This song would fit nicely on still b/p's mixtape!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/27/14 12:26pm Goyim in the AM:

Nü-Mission of Burma not to my years less intensely played than old-Mission of Burma (although the old songs are better). Also Fugazi's playing got fiercer with each record.
Avatar Fri. 6/27/14 12:26pm Lane Steelpicker:

ESPECIALLY players, UM. Buddy is a case in point. As he gained perspective, he lost reckless. Or look at Lloyd (especially on the Little Darlin paychecks). Gain maturity, lose attitude.

My favorite song would usually be whatever made my siblings cringe ("It's A Gas", for one) -- any of that dynamic going on with you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/27/14 12:28pm Mike East:

I feel that my own playing doesn't have the edge that it used to. Was just thinking about that, actually. Its sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/27/14 12:28pm efd:

Man, I hope my two younger brothers never find out about this show!
  Fri. 6/27/14 12:29pm Dean:

My son would love "It's a Gas." My favorite song remains Burt's own arrangement and performance of "Mexican Divorce." Best pop song by miles.
Avatar Fri. 6/27/14 12:30pm still b/p:

"Brandy" -- and all the teen girls who sang it aloud -- drove me nuts in its day, though I sing it when it comes on the vehicle radio today. Recently had a conversation about what period the song is set in. I said 19th century, for no defensible reason.
Avatar    Fri. 6/27/14 12:34pm listener james from westwood:

@still b/p The nautical theme and the fact that one had to be told stories of the sea makes one think it's in a pre-mass communications era, IMO.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 6/27/14 12:34pm pacific standard simon:

"Brandy" would probably be a respectable song if it were sung by some grizzled old country veteran, without all those "doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo" backup singers.
Avatar    Fri. 6/27/14 12:34pm listener james from westwood:

Blancmange! Well done.
Avatar Fri. 6/27/14 12:37pm Lane Steelpicker:

Mike East, I wouldn't worry about it. While I don't usually get as recklessly intense, I can still convey the attitudes and sentiments that the song calls for, and I can do it better.

I first heard of Cheap Trick when I was a kid in St. Louis Missouri, and one Saturday, I was watching Don Kirshner's Rock Concert, and Don Kirshner's son got to introduce Cheap Trick saying: "And now, for the first time on American Television, we introduce Cheap Trick". (Spoken with that Long Island Accent). The days following, other kids and I kept talking about it: "Did you see that band Cheap trick with that guy in a baseball cap jumping around?"

Number 1 song on the date of my birth was "Love Theme from 'Romeo and Juliet'" by Henry Mancini. No diss to the great Mancini, but I wish I'd gotten one of his songs that hadn't become a staple of beautiful-music stations.

Thanks listener James. I had never looked up the number one song from my birthday! Sleepwalk by Santos and Johnny. That makes me happy if not ready for a nap so I can get up.

Millie Small had the first charted ska record and it was the first chart single produced by Chris Blackwell.

This song reminds me of going to some land my parents owned - had a small cabin with a large radio from a WW II ship - and this was playing - not an oldie then

Send not to know for whom the bell tolled, Brian Wilson, it tolled for thee.
  Fri. 6/27/14 2:41pm Dean:

Blackwell had a link to one of SoCal's best record stores, Zed Records in Long Beach. Owner Michael Zampeli's brother, Danny Holloway, worked for Blackwell and fed his brother tips about upcoming British acts, e.g., the Sex Pistols. Great store.
Avatar    Fri. 6/27/14 2:47pm Alex In Illinois:

This is mixed strangely. The vocals are all in the left ear, and everything else is in the right ear, If you want to do karaoke. just un plug the right speaker. Oka, the organ is in the middle now
Avatar    Fri. 6/27/14 2:47pm Alex In Illinois:

I mean the left speaker!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 6/27/14 2:48pm Uncle Michael:

Interesting, Dean. I had not heard that before.
