Auricle Communications is to be applauded for its open meeting policy.
Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 5:00am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Morning Jeff. I've checked out most of this "Seastones"-era of Lagin and Dead friends, somehow missed this particular show tho'. Funny how many 'heads *hated* the "Phil and Ned" segments in '74...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:06am Jeff Conklin:

Yeah, this show doesnt seem to circulate much. I bet the weekend warriors HATED the 74 jams!
Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 5:11am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Weirdly conservative for a bunch of acidheads, i must say. The visceral hatred of Donna Godchaux is also quite troubling (ok, she got a bit carried away at times, but it's not as if the others could sing particularly great harmonies).
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:13am Jeff Conklin:

She was very often more terrible than everybody else.
  Mon. 2/9/15 5:14am Mark:

I know, Canterbury, but the other off-key singers were playing other instruments, and that's where the action was. If you're in a band strictly as a singer, you'd better be able to sing. She was pitchy a lot of the time. One could make the case that the real reason she was in the band because she was married to Keith.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:15am Jeff Conklin:

I met her once and she was less than kind and that's all I'll say about that....
Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 5:18am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Don't want to start a raging Donna debate here, but by '78 her harmonies were gorgeous to my ears, and it's been suggested that monitoring may have had a lot to do with the earlier pitchiness. Everyone's entitled to a Donna opinion, of course, but some of the hatred i've seen online seems to be more rooted in misogyny than pitch-related concerns.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:21am Jeff Conklin:

I don't hate, I just tune out. Her maternity leave was the best!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:24am Sem Chumbo:

@JC: hahaha.
Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 5:37am the Canterbury wood-elf:

"A Sailor's Life" - I recognised this from the first 1/4 second! One of the pinnacles in the history of recorded music!
Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 5:37am the Canterbury wood-elf:

(i think we can all agree about Sandy Denny's vocals)
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:41am Sem Chumbo:

yes, I believe we can.
Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 5:41am Yair Yona:

What an amazing performance by Sandy.
Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 5:44am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Thanks so much for this JC. i'm even loving the vinyl crackles. The convergence of Sandy D and Richard T's extraordinary talents for a brief window of time is enough to convince me that there's more to this reality thing than just subatomic particles and four fundamental forces.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:44am Jeff Conklin:

My Favorite FC jam without question
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:45am Jeff Conklin:

Yeah, I need a better copy of this record :(
Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 5:47am the Canterbury wood-elf:

@JC "She Moved Through the Fair" comes close (did you notice the Brosselmachine lifting of that melody earlier?). And pre-Sandy, there's a mindblowing "Reno, Nevada" (that Richard Farina song) from French TV in '68, Richard T looking about 12 years old - check it out if you haven't already www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:48am Guido from Cologne:

Great selections this morning!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:50am Sem Chumbo:

Going back a-ways down memory lane here, grateful for the reminder of Bruce back then. Thx.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/9/15 5:56am Jeff Conklin:

First Three Cockburn albums are all great!

Thanks for listening all, we'll see you next week?
Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 5:57am jonathan_valdez:

Avatar Mon. 2/9/15 6:00am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Thanks Jeff! Monday mornings are so much better in the Avant Ghetto. Check out Children of the Drone (Exeter, UK free improv collective) if you get a chance, you might like some of what you hear:
