Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Cliff and the Shadows figure (indirectly -- they inspired one of the persons involved) in a kind of chilling story in the Cambodian rock doc -- one of the very few stories in the movie involving a wrong unrelated to the predations of the KR.

Hate that I missed the Genesis track. I got the 45 for my 11th or 12th birthday. I remember feeling sorry for the kid who brought it because two other guests gave me more expensive LPs (Rush and ELO, I think), so I made a really big deal out of what a great song it was. I wasn't lying though: liked it and still do.

Patty is coming over here later this year to perform Horses. Bit confused by this trend of playing albums through. Wonder if Merbow is considering this option.

Ah yes, the Beach Boys.

My kids should be paying royalties to the Fab Four. Every time I ask them why they did such-and-such, they respond with a request for this song.
Avatar    Fri. 6/12/15 1:56pm Rich in Washington:

I used to listen to this song incessantly when I was eight or so. The Yellow Submarine soundtrack over and over. I can't believe I don't have a copy today.

The bass playing on "hey Bulldong" is breathtaking. Kudos to Brian (or was it Carol Kaye?)

I also saw the New York Rock and Soul Revue before the Steely tour and remember really liking that.

With Phoebe Snow and the other singers? Was Libby Titus part of that?

Phoebe Snow was awesome. I don't know who Titus is but pretty sure everyone from the record was there. Had really good seats that my friend hooked us up with. I think Walter Becker may have been there but I could be wrong. Drew Zing is a smokin player.
