This reminds me of the days of Muriel's Treasure.

Same here, Ken! Any chance of Muriel making a comeback?

Muriel went back to the islands. Left her record collection behind.

- ah well - less relevant question when the horns came in anyhow...
Avatar    Wed. 5/13/15 5:07pm Irwin:

RRN63: Sun Ra's "psychedelic" album is (arguably) Night of the Purple Moon ('69 or '70).
     Wed. 5/13/15 5:08pm Listener Robert:

Aw, too bad -- off-center records are fun! It takes very little eccentricity to produce noticeable "wow".
     Wed. 5/13/15 5:08pm Listener Robert:

What happened to the spirit of WFMU DJs playing slow 45s & backwards LPs?
     Wed. 5/13/15 5:09pm Listener Robert:

OK, now that I'm hearing it, woulda been a shame to hear this messed up.
Avatar    Wed. 5/13/15 5:09pm Irwin:

LR: I kicked the freakin' console an hour ago and made a CD skip. And fumbled with the player for 30 seconds to get back to the right track.

Kickin' consoles, reamin' spindle holes...next thing you know, you kids'll be running equipment off unconditioned lines!
  Wed. 5/13/15 5:14pm Dean:

Buddy of mine layered multiple spins of Gerry Rafferty's "Baker Street" with eccentric holes. Long story short, it sounds like Sun Ra is sitting in.
  Wed. 5/13/15 5:15pm spodiodi:

spodi: Nifty clarinet solo too. Clarinet's making a comeback o' sorts in jazz...

True dat, LOT. I knew I shouldn't have sold my clarinet.
