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.

Another record from the 80s that doesn't sound horrible! neat
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/29/16 1:59pm Guido from Cologne:

The name "Ambrose Slade" came frome the crazy girlfried of their manager at the time. the band absolutely hated it. (can be I do not recall it accurate enough but something like this.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/29/16 2:02pm coelacanth:

i haven't listened to that album in a while, but that track was thoroughly enjoyed.

I think it was imaginary radio. I heard that show, too. it was, in fact, great.

Coelacanth, I have the vinyl. I'll try to rip it. Or let Unca Michael do it. LOL

Speaking of unorthodox versions, fans of Cage's 4'33" must "hear" this rendition: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGEG4JiOqew

It is rather difficult to find a lot of music recordings before the 1880s.

Lane, Thanks! - but i have the record too! i just haven't dug it out in a while.

some linda perhacs, perhaps?
Avatar Fri. 4/29/16 2:06pm burke:

Parallelograms...just a killer album. What a voice. That recent followup release by Perhacs was a trip.

get your parkas ready for the Cubbies game this afternoon
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/29/16 2:07pm Guido from Cologne:

Guess that's the original mix.
The CD re-issue is more balanced.

Great segue outta Perhacs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/29/16 2:12pm coelacanth:

i crack up thinking of what people's reaction to Linda Perhacs was then. "on the album cover she looks normal!"..."she CAN sing - what the hell is she thinking?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/29/16 2:12pm Uncle Michael:

Danny, you'll come to know my good segue's are mostly fortuitous accidents.

I hope you're dedicating this Ann Peebles track to the Atlanta Braves, today.

kapp was an indie label.
specialized on esy listening though.
perhacs and silver apples were exceptions.

Haven't heard this Wings track before. It got me to turn the Cubs down for a bit, though. That's an impressive feat!
  Fri. 4/29/16 2:31pm Dean:

I totally do not remember this tune from this album, and I listened to "Wild Life" a good piece back then.

Hi Guys! Good to "see" you all! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/29/16 2:33pm Uncle Michael:

It's a bonus track on the 2nd or 3rd "Wild Life" reissue.

Wow, JP...where to start. Chet Baker Sings and Plays, maybe?

@JP: Gerry Mulligan Quartet with Chet Baker!!! 1953 I think. Lyrical minimalism,gorgeous!
Avatar Fri. 4/29/16 2:39pm geezerette:

@JP: Listen to your Uncle Michael! Sings & PLays is sing-ular!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/29/16 2:40pm JP from KC:

Thanks, UM & Geezerette! I felt a pang of shame in writing that. I feel like I should've gotten into his work much earlier. I'll have to check out both of those albums.
