Interesting choice . . . Kitty, Daisy & Lewis
Sat. 5/23/15 9:26am William:
Nice to hear from Colours. Some gems on that LP.
Sat. 5/23/15 9:28am Melissa Jean:
up early, first time listener just tuned in - from the playlist I see I should be listenin ALLA TIME!
Sat. 5/23/15 9:29am melinda:
Nice to hear Jo Stafford again.
Sat. 5/23/15 9:47am Stevel:
Alan Price is incredible. Never heard of him. What a feeling!
Sat. 5/23/15 9:51am Bob Brainen:
Thanks all, glad you're on board!
Sat. 5/23/15 9:52am Jack:
@ Stevel - "Oh Lucky Man!" is a great Alan Price album, and he's in the movie of the same name.
Sat. 5/23/15 10:06am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
Alan Price took a writing credit on 'House of the Rising Sun' & so got major royalties & this came between him & the others Animals I have read. You can see him drinking & hanging affably w/ Dylan in 'Don't Look Back'...
Sat. 5/23/15 10:11am Mike East:
@Rev Rabbit - isn't it Alan Price who opens the beer on the piano and chips some of wood off it?
Sat. 5/23/15 10:11am William:
I believe Jerry Corbitt passed on in the last year or so. His solo albums are solid.
Sat. 5/23/15 10:13am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- sounds exactly right MikeE - been a while I've seen it!
Sat. 5/23/15 10:14am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
...he tells Dylan about Donovan: 'He's a good guitar player - better than you!'...
Sat. 5/23/15 10:14am Mike East:
yeah, me too. Love that flick...young people being young people.
Sat. 5/23/15 10:15am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:
- perfect flip to 'Hard Day's Night'...

Sat. 5/23/15 10:22am mrmucho:
Oh this is a real treat, Bob
Sat. 5/23/15 10:25am Stuart rose:
Was that Jm Lowe the former WNEW-AM jock?
Jack, you're right about Lucky Man being an exceptional album. Price did a couple of other albums worth checking out. The names escape me. He always choose/wrote good songs and arranged them elegantly(but not bloodlessly),
Bob, the accent in Naftuli is in the secnd syllable. I love your applying Apollonian/ Dionysian classification to those old Klezmer players.
Sat. 5/23/15 10:27am Stevel:
"...haddya like that? a flat tyah."
Sat. 5/23/15 10:28am Stevel:
Thanks all, for the Alan Price info.
So good to be listening live this morning.

It's pretty common with metal bands. Black Sabbath (technically named themselves after the song), Angel Witch, Iron Maiden, Manowar, to name a few
Sat. 5/23/15 10:35am MONEYBAG$:
yesterday a local show did 2 hours of songs where the artist's name is mentioned in the song but is NOT the title
Sat. 5/23/15 10:35am JoshWPRB:
There is no better bed music. Always start my Saturdays with Bob. Unstoppable.
Sat. 5/23/15 10:35am MONEYBAG$:
Bo was also in that
Sat. 5/23/15 10:36am P-90:
Bad Company by Bad Company from their album, Bad Company
Sat. 5/23/15 10:36am William:
Sea Train by Sea Train from the album Sea Train
Sat. 5/23/15 10:38am Stuart Rose:
What a shame Michael Brown and Steve Martin didn't collaborate regularly over the years.
Sat. 5/23/15 10:41am P-90:
btw, there are also clips of Alan Price, performing the songs, worked into the movie "O Lucky Man", unusual for a dramatic film.
Sat. 5/23/15 10:43am William:
Jerry Corbitt died March 2014. Lung cancer. Found it on J.C. Young's Facebook page.
