Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

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.

grazie, charlie. as opposed to charlie gracie.
Avatar Sat. 11/7/15 10:54pm Monica:

forgot how many hits they had! the type of songs that kiddies and grannies could groove on.
Avatar Sat. 11/7/15 10:55pm Lane Gray:

I can't hear Old Fashioned Love Song without the Japanese accent.
  Sat. 11/7/15 10:56pm ronzoni:

my first cassette player was from korvettes. kor-sonic was the brand. got it mainly to practice my bar-mitzvah lessons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/7/15 10:56pm Uncle Michael:

What, Lane?

Charlie...I keep chickening out of watching it...I start and it gets creepy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/7/15 10:57pm Uncle Michael:

How is that practice going, Ron?
Avatar    Sat. 11/7/15 10:57pm Charlie:

yeah, it's a little creepy, but it gets less so.
Avatar Sat. 11/7/15 10:58pm Lane Gray:

Bluegrass 45 was the first version iIever heard. Japanese bluegrass

if i keep at it i may be the next buddy sorrell
Avatar Sat. 11/7/15 10:59pm Lane Gray:

The same band that did Massachusetts and Sweet Caroline, AND a bluegrass Rondo Alla Turka
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/7/15 10:59pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...the 3DN versions were very accomplished - but also produced straight in the direction of the charts - & honestly a little over-exposed for decades - on every comp of Hits - every reference for domestic piano players &tc.
...so these versions effectively restore appreciation for the very high quality of a very large number of tunes...somebody in 3DN or their handlers had this ability to pick songs...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/7/15 11:00pm Uncle Michael:

Well put, Rev.
  Sat. 11/7/15 11:02pm ronzoni:

i doubt that 3DN get a lot of radio play these days. what format would play them? NY's "oldies" station is too busy playing billy joel and madonna
  Sat. 11/7/15 11:02pm Doug Schulkind:

Honestly, does anyone really think Jeremiah was a bullfrog?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/7/15 11:02pm Uncle Michael:

Will explain at the break but we shall hear two versions of Black & White.
  Sat. 11/7/15 11:02pm johnk77:

spent several of the funniest
and craziest
nights of my life
at the late lamented
palomino club in north hollywood
working with bill kirchen & the moonlighters
opening for hoyt
who was a huge fan of bill's
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/7/15 11:02pm Uncle Michael:

Was Hoyt a good hang?
Avatar Sat. 11/7/15 11:03pm Lane Gray:

And that made the Monkees' What Am I Doing Hangin 'Round into bluegrass.

Agreed, Rev. Song selection is pretty important, but often overlooked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/7/15 11:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Good point - because these tracks used to be ubiquitous.
  Sat. 11/7/15 11:04pm johnk77:

  Sat. 11/7/15 11:12pm Doug Schulkind:

Ironically, I made that comment at 11:10, and 11/10 is Loggins' birthday.

since it's Hinky Dinky Time I can confess to loving Hard Labor LP (no guilty pleasures)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/7/15 11:30pm Uncle Michael:

You're in a safe place.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 11/7/15 11:30pm Uncle Michael:

Last song...last hit...man, was it ever over for them by this time...

This is terrible...therefore a fitting capstone.
