Hey Dave!

Hi, Dave. Nice of you to come in and not play hooky like so many others today. Where's the commitment?!?!

Greetings Dave Mandl !

a rare treat to catch th'Echo in real time...

They're all drinkin' @ the Record Fair. They're no fools.

Hey RRN63, Jake, Ken, geezerette, RTD.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:06pm Dave Mandl:

I missed a show a couple of weeks ago, so...
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 5/1/16 10:06pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

AH, spooky. Was just laying out an advert for this particular Claudia rekkid...
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:06pm Dave Mandl:

I was at the record fair earlier today, too early for me to miss the show tonight.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:07pm JakeGould:

I had one beer at the record fair today and it didn’t ruin my life…
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:07pm Carmichael:

Aloha, Dave. I just finished painting a room. I'm beat, need a beer and some righteous tunes.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:07pm Dave Mandl:

@RTD: Ha, amazing coincidence. But I play the Claudias a lot.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:09pm Dave Mandl:

Hi Carmichael. I'll do my best.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/1/16 10:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...then they go home w/ all this degenerate vinyl & have mad hippie freakout orgies in the hipster City in May...
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:10pm JakeGould:

I was pleased to see one dealer attempting to sell opened/used “Purple Rain” and “1999” CDs for $16 a pop. Capitalism!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 5/1/16 10:13pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

…followed by Happy the Man. Most groovy. Hard to believe it's already been 11 years since seeing 'em at ProgDay...
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:15pm Dave Mandl:

I bought no records at the fair. Not bragging about that--I just didn't have time.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:16pm Dave Mandl:

@RTD: Ah, that must have been some show.
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:16pm Carmichael:

Daddy loves his Crafty Hands.
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:17pm Carmichael:

RTD, if you tell me you saw Caravan there, I will yell angrily.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:20pm JakeGould:

@DaveMandl: Did you see any live performances? James Chance was pretty amazing. The guy has still got it.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 5/1/16 10:20pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

alas, no Caravan. I think Mike Keneally Band or Glenn Phillips might have headlined. Far Corner was fun (cuneiform-label outfit), The Muffins = excellent, naturally. Also first & only time seeing The Spacious Mind: they altered everyone's DNA forever.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:22pm Dave Mandl:

@Jake: I did see Mr. Chance. Yeah, great performance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/1/16 10:23pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...I wonder if anyone who's never taken psychedelics describes music as altering DNA...not that we'll ever find out...
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:30pm Dave Mandl:

I'd like to see before and after shots of that DNA.
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:31pm Carmichael:

Caravan and Hatfield and The North played at Progfest once. Other side of the country, alack.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:34pm JakeGould:

Dude the 63 years old but the second he had to perform, it’s like he’s always done that thing he does. Which is probably the truth. It was amazing.
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:40pm ScottC:

Always thought that Canned Heat's drummer kicked ass - seriously...
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:42pm Pete L:

f ing love Canned Heat
Under rated
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:42pm Dave Mandl:

Huh, I've got to listen to the drummer more closely. Never noticed him.
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:43pm Carmichael:

All I remember is that their bass player was Chicken Hirsch.
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:44pm Carmichael:

Pardon me while I swoon.
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:48pm JoeRay:

Alan Wilson
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:49pm chinpou:

This is some primo WFMU right here. Excellent set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/1/16 10:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Older sibling had 'On The Road Again' 45 in my *very* early years - begins & ends w/ that spectrum of harmonics. In the Monterey Pop film - there's Bob 'Bear' Hite - & the rest look real mid-60s geeky (like that drummer). But they know the Blues alright! I read Beefheart felt them rivals on that scene...
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:51pm Carmichael:

Bob Hite was the lead singer. Al "Blind Owl" Wilson was the lead guitar. Both OD'd back in the 70s.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:55pm Dave Mandl:

Ah, right, Al Wilson. Thanks, folks. Did he really die that long ago? And yeah, they were a pretty kick-ass blues band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/1/16 10:55pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Sad. Jim Morrison liked them too. Thx for that track.
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:55pm P-90:

Hi Dave! Enjoying this.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:56pm Dave Mandl:

Hey, P-90. And welcome chinpou, JoeRay, ScottC, Pete L.
  Sun. 5/1/16 10:59pm Carmichael:

Yeah, sad. I have a live video them playing Let's Work Together, Wilson playing slide guitar. Amazing stuff.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:59pm slugluv1313:

god evening, Dave & listeners!
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:59pm Dave Mandl:

Hey there, sl1313.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 10:59pm slugluv1313:

oops i mean GOOD evening!
not wanting to get all religious on y'all :)
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 11:02pm Dave Mandl:

Haha. I'd like to think s/he is watching over me, making sure I don't mess up a segue.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 11:05pm Dave Mandl:

(Just kidding. I'm on my own here.)
  Sun. 5/1/16 11:07pm Carmichael:

Speaking of God, I saw a horrible 70s movie last night called God Told Me To. Tony LoBianco and Piper Laurie. Bunch of random killings by possessed people. One of the extras (a killer) was Andy Kaufman.
  Sun. 5/1/16 11:08pm Carmichael:

This, my friends, is Rory Gallagher.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/1/16 11:08pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- whom I need to hear more of - cheers!...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/1/16 11:09pm coelacanth:

goo evening Dave and others
  Sun. 5/1/16 11:12pm Carmichael:

They don't normally have a sax player. Was that John Helliwell?
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 11:12pm Dave Mandl:

Evening, coelacanth.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 11:13pm Dave Mandl:

Yes, Rory Gallagher!
  Sun. 5/1/16 11:18pm Carmichael:

Seriously, saxophone by Rory Gallagher?!?
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 11:22pm Dave Mandl:

No, guitar and vocals. Not sure offhand who the sax player was.
  Sun. 5/1/16 11:27pm Carmichael:

Helliwell has a pedigree with Irish bands. I could explain it, but it's 2 beers worth of convo and not fit for public consumption. Wiki tells me, though, that Rory was playing sax. It may even be true.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 11:29pm Dave Mandl:

OK, I'll take your word for it. I had no idea he played sax.
Avatar Sun. 5/1/16 11:33pm slugluv1313:

@ Carmichael -- omg (!) -- i think i saw "God Told Me To" many many years ago -- maybe on late night (pre-cable) TV? yeah really awful/cheesey
@ Dave -- whatever/whoever is out there, i would much rather be mindful/respectful of that presence, than make myself nuts over some (man-made) religion (being raised Roman Catholic will do that to ya, i guess! )
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/1/16 11:35pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Make a Hippie Noise Unto the Lord.
  Sun. 5/1/16 11:56pm Bill C:

God Told Me To. I think that was directed by the It's Alive guy.
Avatar Mon. 5/2/16 12:00am Dave Mandl:

Have a great week, all. Thanks for listening/typing.
  Mon. 5/2/16 5:32am milo:

Rory indeed played sax in his early years with his band Taste. Check out Rory switching from guitar to sax at around the 5 minute mark on his live Beat Club performance of "It's Happened Before, it'll Happen Again" -- https://youtu.be/N0_NvpLGmUw
