Here's something interesting, and slightly relevant to current conversation: Last night before bed I was looking at some of Frida Kahlo's dresses, corsets and such and then moved on to her paintings. During the night I had a dream that Olivia Neutron John was playing at an art show I was curating...

BUT - once I get Internet set up at the house, I'll only have to make this drive three days a week, which I am totally ok with. The upside to a long commute is that it's just me and my music for a good while. I like that.

Sorry you missed the record fair! That sucks... and you're local! I was pretty bummed about having to miss it myself. Next time. I'm determined!

@JoeMcG - best version I've ever heard of 'Can't take my eyes of you'!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 10:55am Stevel:

Cigarette?
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 10:55am Joe McG:

Actually, "Diamonds and Rust" was Scott's original request, but I don't have it. Don't even know if it was a 45, although it should've been.

thedunkel's very presence is making me thirsty. TOO EARLY......
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 10:55am coelacanth:

Bear!,that was a guess on my part! i just checked:"1hr,56min". i do work about 1 hour from brooklyn,so going to or from there was my plan; but it wasn't meant to be.

(...i want what <she's having.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 10:56am Mike East:

Ah, thanks for the Drifters.
Good morning, Joe and all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/7/15 10:56am Stevel:

My wife is a Judy Collins fan. Still hasn't come to terms with the Priest cover. We agree to disagree.

According to Discogs, there were JP "Diamonds and Rust" singles, just not in the US --> www.discogs.com...

Jinx!
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 10:58am Joe McG:

Thanks, fleep and PKNY. I'll look for one. Also, "Breaking the Law," which I need to have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 10:58am drr:

heh, never heard "Star Of The Ghetto" before today, but this marks the second time I've heard it today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 10:58am Cecile:

Joe, just buy the whole British Steel album. It's all choice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 10:58am coelacanth:

isn't diamonds & rust a Joan Baez song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 10:59am Cecile:

it is, coel.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:00am Joe McG:

@drr: That's weird! Who else spun this one today, drr?
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:01am Joe McG:

@Cecile: It's certainly got one of their less embarrassing album covers!
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:01am Claw!:

Fleep! V!

Just got back from a coffee run - I'm gonna have to agree with MORE PRIEST. Always more.

Although this is pretty dope, too. :)
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:02am Claw!:

You will be missed, Mr. King.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:03am Dominick:

nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 11:05am coelacanth:

Thanks Cecile! i just looked. i guess Judy Collins primarily did covers.(or,only?)
'never heard the 'priest cover. both of those "genres" were far away from where i was at back then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 11:05am drr:

Joe: YouTube rabbit hole: was listening to Ben E. King's version of "Into The Mystic" and the AWB came on after.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 11:07am Marcel M:

Wow 7 mins plus on a 45 is REALLY pushing it. Probably why it was a little thin sounding.

I'm sorry you're feeling down. Glad you're here. Company is good for sadness, even if it's virtual company. *hugs*
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 11:07am coelacanth:

some here may be interested to check out Evan Funk Davies' tribute to Errol Brown last night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 11:07am Cecile:

Joe, Priest transcend embarrassment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 11:08am Cecile:

yes, I'll have to check it out, coel. Loved Hot Chocolate, they never quite got their due over here.

Yeah, Joe. I'm with Cecile. Priest is above all embarrassment. Even when Halford fell of his Harley that one time.
He is the original Beyonce... FLAWLESS.

Ben is a great singer, but he's best when things are polished behind him.

@coelcanth: I just had a look and he hit a lot of my faves, so I might dance around and play some album cuts!

Joe i know i'm not just speaking for myself if i say i'm psyched!

  Thu. 5/7/15 11:36am Brendan:

Joe that wah wah in the song just inspired me....have you ever considered a porn soundtrack show? Maybe that would be stepping into Morricone Isle territory.
  Thu. 5/7/15 11:37am C:

This show is saving my day. Thank you!
  Thu. 5/7/15 11:38am KP:

Good, thanks
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:38am Joe McG:

@Brendan: It's a great idea, but I don't have too many porn soundtracks! I'm sure I can harvest a set from the WFMU library, though. BTW, these are all songs that Erroll Brown wrote. Those are the ones I'm picking.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:40am Wynford Eagle:

yep RIP Errol Brown, formerly of Brixton UK, massive in my childhood here inna ingland...bless that man and Joe thanks for playing back to back HC

i'm very happy to hear these album tracks that i've never heard, since i have only one hot chocolate album.(especially with the warm crackle of vinyl)

Damn, Joe. This has been a great show, and the tributes are just wonderful!

On ELO's official website there used to a porn soundtrack they are on along with the film itself. I couldn't get it to play on my Mac. The soundtrack, I mean

Get better Joe. I've onlyjust recovered from a cold but have had lots of headaches and stomach aches lately though. :-(
  Thu. 5/7/15 11:58am Brendan:

Tablespoon each of honey, lemon and bourbon in a warm shot glass 'll do you right, Joe. Adjust proportions as the current environment dictates.
I think it might have come from one of my tattered old Foxfire books.
