Send in the clouds, Parq!

Hi everybody! Had to shovel this morning and am a little behind, so may lag on comments for a while. So please talk amongst yourselves. Have a canape and perhaps an aperetif.

before checking that "source" link... I was convinced that was all cotton with good photographing lights and a bit of photoshop...

Nice to here ol' Ade before he went totally digital.

hear, not here, y'hear?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/5/15 12:20pm Carmichael:

Sounds like a guest walking onto the Mike Douglas Show.
Avatar Thu. 2/5/15 12:24pm bobdoesthings:

@charlie - do you scrutinize over cumulus, stratus, cirrus, or other cloud types?

My head is in all the clouds: cumulative, stratocaster, stirrup, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/5/15 12:33pm Carmichael:

Certainly the worst introduction ever.
Avatar Thu. 2/5/15 12:34pm Inner Ear Detour:

Hiya, Charlie. Digging the show from down in Philly.
Avatar Thu. 2/5/15 12:36pm Charlie:

Hi David Philly Detour!
  Thu. 2/5/15 12:39pm Listening Out There:

Thanks for playing "You and the Night and the Music". I don't think I've ever heard the lyrics. I've heard jazz versions based on the melody, but never the words....
Avatar Thu. 2/5/15 12:39pm bobdoesthings:

@charlie - I love those stratocaster clouds.. especially the vintage ones with the older pickups
  Thu. 2/5/15 12:41pm KevinfromBayRidge:

Clouds here in S Fla. Makes your show even better!

Avatar Thu. 2/5/15 12:46pm Roberto:

I detect some Khatchaturianic appropriation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/5/15 12:50pm Carmichael:

This is produced via track separation? The drummer is in one speaker, and the rest of the gang is over in the other one.
Avatar Thu. 2/5/15 12:53pm bobdoesthings:

@carmichael - perhaps I'm not following what that means.. but in my right headphone I get vox too... ? I can hear some parts more heavily on one side than the other though but it still seemed mixed ..
Avatar Thu. 2/5/15 1:01pm Flash Strap:

Just dropped in! this is lovely

Ooh. Now we're getting to the processed cheese part of the program...

Well congratulations, Doug!

Ty, Carmichael. It's nothing to crow about, but it beats getting kicked in the teeth.

Avatar Thu. 2/5/15 2:01pm Parq:

Tiny Tim is probably the most underrated non-mainstream musical performer ever. Dismissed almost universally (at least outside the FMUniverse) as a ridiculous novelty act, he was actually an erudite expert on vintage music and he was meticulous in putting his songs together. Laugh-In made him a star, but it also left a permanent mistaken impression of him on the minds of the public.
  Thu. 2/5/15 2:02pm Listening Out There:

what Parq said. Sting backed him up once. Said TT knew a huge book of tunes...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/5/15 2:02pm Doug Schulkind:

@Parq
Sometime I'll tell you about the time I "performed" with Tiny Tim.
  Thu. 2/5/15 2:02pm Listening Out There:

Thx, Charlie!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 2/5/15 2:03pm Brian in UK:

Bob Cratchet had a hard time too. Nice one Charlie.
