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.

I actually remember commercials for the Mondo Cane films on local top forty radio in the mid 60s. Just try imagine something like that on today's Clearchannel robots.
  Fri. 9/4/15 1:21pm Dean:

This Alphonso tune reminds me of a special compilation, 5 CDs, made for me by a friend, consisting of a bazillion recordings, mostly LP transcriptions, featuring organ, usually B3. Stuff like Greg Rolie with Santana, Felix Cavaliere, etc. He called it "Organ Spankers."

I contribute this comment only so I can write "organ spankers."

Would you call his recording "definitive?"

Well, I'd call it Bobby Darin definitive -- there are too many flavors and moods and diverting treatments, as we're hearing here today, to elevate any one version to big D status.

@Jeff - can be a divisive track. my bro in law owns EVERY Dylan album and that track makes him cringe

i come in on the pro side for Dylan/Cash. My gf doesn't like it at all.

...what stood out to me was how different Bob's voice was in that period - evidence of how he changes voices, gestures, personas so utterly...
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 2:09pm hyde:

it even divides households!
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 2:09pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

I love Dylan in that song, can't stand Cash. I know, I'm a philistine.
I never had any use for Wings but have to admit I'm liking all of these songs. Live and learn.

I've always liked the unrehearsed quality of Girl from the North Country.
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 2:11pm still b/p:

The two familiar very contrasting voices make it interesting to the ear in the unslick progress of it..."Hey, you got Dylan in my Cash!" "You got Cash in my Dylan!" Two great tastes that semi-grope great together.

jimmy mcculloch also sang on Medicine Jar and Wino Junko...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:14pm Uncle Michael:

Those are the two that I'm not playing today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:16pm Uncle Michael:

Because I've played 'em before...several times...

Nice Kinky sounds! Yay!

@still b/p: well put.

goes well with your swirling road, UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:18pm Brian in UK:

Found myself singing!! Don't You Fret an early Kinks songs, the other day. No idea where it drifted in from.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:18pm Parq:

The near-atonal croaking of Bob and Johnny on "true -- lov-v-v-ve -- of-f-f-f" is one of the most vivid memories of my adolescence. I got that album from the local library. I actually picture my childhood bedroom whenever I hear that passage.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:20pm Uncle Michael:

I picture your childhood bedroom too, Parq.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:20pm Parq:

You have my sympathies.
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 2:21pm Sweet Corn Lizzie:

I remember this Bobby Gentry song! Very risque!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 2:22pm melinda:

Bobbie! I was hoping the Fancy theme would lead to this one.
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 2:26pm Alex In Illinois:

Dang! Bobbie Gentry's songwriting is amazing. I had not heard that one before, and I was hanging on to every word.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:27pm Uncle Michael:

Yep, she wrote it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:27pm Parq:

Yeh, that is a terrific little number, ain't it?
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 2:36pm listener james from westwood:

Bobbie Gentry has numerous entries in my growing-up "You can DO that in a song?!" playlist. Presley's "In the Ghetto" is another, as is "Sympathy for the Devil." Just perfect, paradigm-shifting unities of tune and storytelling my young self hadn't thought possible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 2:36pm melinda:

Gilbert O'Sullivan sounds like a pseudonym.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:37pm Uncle Michael:

That should be your DJ premium, James.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:37pm Uncle Michael:

Raymond Edward O'Sullivan
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:40pm Uncle Michael:

He refers to himself as Uncle Ray in "Claire."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:42pm Goyim in the AM:

It's good that I have an electric oven, 'cause this Nilsson song makes we wanna stick my head in it. (In a good way.)
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 2:42pm still b/p:

I appreciate the unflowery, uninflated clarity of this from O'Sullivan:
"I write pop songs. End of story. That's all I wanted to do. That's all I want to do. And that's all I continue to want to do. I have no interest in just touring, and living in the past."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:43pm Uncle Michael:

That's pretty cool.
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 2:44pm listener james from westwood:

@UM: It would be quite a mix!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 2:44pm doctorjazz:

Don't hear this Beach Boy tune much (if ever), really nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:45pm Uncle Michael:

GDTR's DJ Flash Strap inspired that selection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 2:49pm Sean B.:

I love Carls voice. Just watched Love And Mercy last night. Giamatti as Landry? Forgettaboutit!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:50pm Uncle Michael:

I love carl's voice too...but that was Dennis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:51pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@still b/p: - that's just what I was thinking listening to that Gilbert: it's kinda singer-songwriter, but it's Pop - & we love it.

@doctorjazz: When working @ a CD store, somebody just left a beat-up disc from the green Beach Boys 'Good Vibrations' boxed set - no case or anything. So I know that tune. Love when music enters yer life like that...It's a good boxed set, apparently!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 2:52pm Sean B.:

? Thought it was on second thought.hope all is well mike.The book was better though. The autobiography
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:53pm Uncle Michael:

All is well, Sean. How are you?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 2:54pm Sean B.:

Good.just checking in enjoying the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...actually that boxed set is probably woody colored - whatever...
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 2:55pm ndbob:

Indeed LJFW - took me quite a while to appreciate Bobbie

Every Friday at 3:01pm it's like falling off a cliff.
@Doug, if you're reading these comments, how about we get a new show for 3-6 or whatnot...?
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 2:58pm chromaphone:

Great idea Jeff
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:58pm Brian in UK:

Nice one, Uncle.

@Jeff G it is a bit different here at eight o'clock.
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 2:59pm Jeff Golick:

Ah, yes, @Brian, I suppose it is on to the dinner hour and weekend-y pursuits. Still have some daylight to deal with here in the States.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 2:59pm Uncle Michael:

But Jeff, then I'll have to finish on time!
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 3:00pm Jeff Golick:

(Doesn't seem to stop Doug, @UM.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 3:01pm Uncle Michael:

Imagine a 24/7 schedule and no one finishing on time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 3:03pm Brian in UK:

If everyone does it, it is the same thing. To the kitchen, Jeeves.
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 3:03pm Jeff Golick:

You've pretty much described my life, right there.
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 3:03pm still b/p:

Stephen Stills auditioned when The Monkees were being assembled, but no get. He played some guitar on that Long Title track. Dreams can come true.
  Fri. 9/4/15 3:04pm sean b.:

You listen to Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands by Dylan. Thats where that song came from
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 3:05pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks for spending precious time, friends.
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 3:05pm ndbob:

excellent show UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 9/4/15 3:06pm doctorjazz:

Would be nice to have something after 3PM, agree with the "falling off a cliff".Well, I was away last week, 2 shows to catch up with...

Thx Um - 'specially for the pickled egg tavern weepers.

The end of Long, long, long used to really creep me out when I was a kid
Avatar    Fri. 9/4/15 3:09pm listener james from westwood:

@doctorjazz: You never know—4 weeks ago we didn't have Kim or Mayuko on the roster! What might autumn bring? For the moment, 3 pm is often my Nick Name archive session.

@UM: Many thanks for the fine show and for the returns to Wings throughout! It was like a chorus in a Greek play. (A happy Greek play. Too many of them end with blindness and madness and pissed-off Olympians.)

A fine weekend to all!!
Avatar Fri. 9/4/15 3:10pm V Priceless:

thanks, Unc! Have a fun holiday
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/4/15 3:10pm Parq:

Today got of to one lousy start. Never mind why, but I really needed some quiet time with good music and snappy conversation. Thanks, all.
