I am perfectly disposed just now to smart moody singer-songwriter Folk - I suppose even the lugubrious genius of Dylan's divorce period...

I'd be careful where you touch that organ.

Bonjour Jeff !
great GM Wallis, reminds me of the Caretaker
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/27/15 3:51am Jeff Conklin:

I don't know the Caretaker. Wallis was in Whitehouse. That jam is from 1980. And good morning, Pierre
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 7/27/15 3:56am Ike:

Sounds great!
Avatar Mon. 7/27/15 3:56am pierre:

Merci Jeff, well then it's probably Wallis influencing The Caretaker… His album "An Empty Bliss Beyond This World" is worth a listen (it's the only one I listened entirely) it has a massive emphases on the loop side of music. I like the fact that it sounds like it's coming from the inside of a whale.

pressing the volume UP for this Mission Papua Holland, what Ike said.

Thanks for the heads-up Jeff! You'd think something like that would end up on the 6pm news here in NZ but alas ...

Chicken Thighs In Tomato Sauce

Serves 2-3


6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 1/2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
1 (14 ounce) can diced plum tomatoes
1/3 packed cup brown sugar (or honey)
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
salt & pepper


1. Pat dry the chicken thighs with paper towels, then brown with oil in Dutch oven over medium high heat. Remove and set aside.
2. Reduce heat to medium, add butter, and saute the onions, garlic, thyme and pepper flakes about 4-5 minutes. Do not burn.
3. Add the diced tomatoes, brown sugar (or honey), cider vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir to combine and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, return chicken to Dutch oven, cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
4. Remove from heat and stir in mustard, then add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with starch of choice: noodles, rice, potatoes, or crusty bread.

welp, if you really want to know, Dylan says, "Sift salt and flour together, then mix with the remaining dry ingredients. Add the figs, lemon rind and juice, milk, and beaten eggs. Beat well. Mixture should have a soft dropping consistency. Put into a greased 2 pint pudding basin, cover securely and steam for 3 hours. I like it served with heated golden syrup topping, and a generous pour of custard – makes me hungry just talking about it. My engineer Tex Carbone likes vanilla ice cream on it; I don't understand that at all.”

Have I mentioned that I put together an entire CD full of versions of KC's "Groon"?

Thanks, Rabbit. You're right.

Masterful track selection, Jeff - thanks - (listening in from Dorset, UK)

It would be so nice to believe in a creator, or a master plan.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/27/15 4:52am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks so much, Wynford. We covered a lot of ground this morning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 7/27/15 4:55am pacific standard simon:

Jeff, if you want to switch to a King Crimson track each show, rather than a Grateful Dead track each show, I would gladly support that.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 7/27/15 4:57am Jeff Conklin:

Only the Dead got that privilege...

Hi Jeff and ghetto-dwellers all. Late again, and this time I miss Crimson playing Pharaoh?? I really must start getting up earlier on Mondays. Personally I'd support a weekly dose of both the Dead and the Crims...

That KC boot is widely available online, though.

thank you for making my Monday morning comute such a pleasure.

My 3rd grade band recital is widely available on the internet though its just nobody thinks to look for it ;)

Gotta say that Cale tune Amsterdam right at the top of the show was exactly what I needed to hear at that moment, emotionally speaking.

Thank you for listening, George...

Does anyone know how to get an animated gif avatar to work? I just uploaded one, but it only shows up as a static image.
