Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 12:06pm Jeff Golick:

It's the sound of Miles Davis selling out!
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 12:07pm jeff-m:

hi all. Thanks for hanging for a bit. Be hear for 4 hours today.

This is my go-to Miles for getting people to leave my office
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 12:08pm jeff-m:

yeah, seems kinda funny to say about something that's pretty challenging compared to most music
  Wed. 8/3/16 12:10pm Michael Pollak:

Great stuff. I'm embarrassed to say I don't know this album. Beats hell out of Bitch's Brew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 12:13pm Jeff Golick:

"Black Beauty was recorded on April 10, 1970, at the Fillmore West in San Francisco, when Davis performed as the opening act for the Grateful Dead."
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 12:14pm jeff-m:

I'm no expert myself.
It's a gatefold so when I peaked the awesome photo I had to have it.

Ah cool. Thanks Jeff
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 12:15pm doctorjazz:

Hi all. Nice opening, such energy on this!
Just a note-my web page doesn't have the pop up player on it (had to open Amanda's page to get it), minor, but figured I'd let you know. It's the only way I can listen to the stream at the office.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 12:16pm coelacanth:

Miles did some pretty cheezy stuff after this that i would, with a certain degree of ignorance, think more of as him selling out....except i think it was more like Miles getting caught-up in the cheeze that was prevalent in the mid-late 70s and especially the 80s, rather than him selling out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 12:17pm Uncle Michael:

I have a link to the pop-up player on the page.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 12:17pm Jeff Golick:

I see the pop-up link on my playlist page, fwiw. (wfmu.org...).

This Miles album wasn't released in the US until 1997!
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 12:18pm jeff-m:

that's when I bought it roughly. thought it was a bootleg at the time
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 12:19pm Jeff Golick:

Miles basically sat out '76-80, and didn't start (to my ears) getting soggy until that 1980s comeback. Admittedly, I don't know those later albums well at all.
  Wed. 8/3/16 12:19pm Michael Pollak:

So I'm looking this up on Google Play, and I see two entries for Miles Live at the Fillmore West. One says Black Beauty: Live at the FW, the other just Fillmore West. But neither has a song named Black Beauty, never mind part 1. Is there a trick?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 12:21pm doctorjazz:

Not me...I opened the page from the email, maybe that's the issue. Anyway, was able to get to it.

Actually, it's really weird. I have the "Give the Drummer Radio LIVE Audio Streams (Get Help)" sentence, then there is just a blank space. If I hover the mouse over the space after that line, the pop up player is there, but it doesn't show as it usually would.

Hola!!!! listening from work!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 12:23pm coelacanth:

Michael P "black beauty" was technically a medley. the cd reissue separates it into individual titles.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 12:24pm Jeff Golick:

Yah, from wiki: Black Beauty was originally released only in Japan in 1973. It contained four side-long tracks spread across a double album, grouping the songs as medleys titled "Black Beauty Part I", "Black Beauty Part II", and so on, all of which credited Davis as the composer. He did not want the actual segments specified on the track listing out of a distaste for critics and listeners who arduously analyzed his music; according to DeJohnette's wife Lydia, "Miles really felt that critics and people spent too much time in their mental mind, analyzing and talking for hours about something that really just is." Columbia spent several years identifying some of the individual compositions to ensure royalty payment for the actual composers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 12:28pm listener james from westwood:

@JeffG: Lydia neatly summed up why I didn't get a masters in English. Didn't want to hear beauty get talked to death and pinned to wax like a biology class frog any more than I already had.
  Wed. 8/3/16 12:28pm MONEYBAG$:

Haven't heard Sugar Plant in forever
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 12:29pm doctorjazz:

@UM...the sentence is there "on WFMU's..", but after the "(Get Help): it is just blank (the divider does appear that separates the pop-up and the 128k MP3, but the words pop up and 128 MP3 aren't there, just blank). As I said, when I hover the mouse indicates that the control is there, and if I copy/paste, the words appear. Weird.
  Wed. 8/3/16 12:33pm Michael Pollak:

Thanks very much, coelacanth.
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 12:51pm jeff-m:

hi Mayuko, didnt see you. Have too many windows open on this little monitor :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 12:58pm fred:

I'm so glad to hear this show again. Relieved too: I lost my internet connection a short time before it started. Being in France in August, having the problem fixed after 6pm is a miracle.
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 1:10pm jeff-m:

hey Fred. Yeah, I always heard August is rough in France if you need something.

Amanda lost her mind and asked me to play. Then David had to take over for the pilot in his airplane, but flew west by accident... So I'll be here for a bit
  Wed. 8/3/16 1:10pm Michael Pollak:

Thanks to you to, Jeff Golick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 1:14pm fred:

@jeff-m: Ha! August, and July, and December, and May. You also want to avoid early January, early September and late June.
  Wed. 8/3/16 1:16pm Dean:

I'm thinking doctorjazz's issue has to do with the fact that visited links on this page are set to "white" (not a hex number) whereas, for example, Duane's page setting is for #333366 ("Very dark desaturated blue"). Because doctorjazz has previously visited the pop-up, his browser either won't render the "white" value or it won't adequately distinguish the value from the (to my browser) gray background.
  Wed. 8/3/16 1:18pm Dean:

(Apologies for presumption of gender: "his.")
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 1:19pm Jeff Golick:

I think Dean's onto it re invisible pop-up hyperlink.
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 1:21pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@doctorjazz: Can you reload the whole page and then confirm that you're still having the problem?
  Wed. 8/3/16 1:24pm Dean:

Heh, Ken changed the visited value to #ffffff, hex for white.
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 1:24pm jeff-m:

damn, gonna make me get my hex chart out
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 1:25pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

I also added # to the other color codes, which were missing them. It's possible a browser would interpret those wrong without pound signs.
  Wed. 8/3/16 1:27pm Dean:

Right. And some browsers are less forgiving than others.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 1:29pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Greetings, HTML fans. We're on the other side of hump hour now.
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 1:29pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Jeff M, this is beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 1:30pm doctorjazz:

The page changed to gray, now the pop up and 128k MP3 ARE visible (I'm a he, you can call me Jack). It was white writing on a white background, aha!
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 1:31pm jeff-m:

yeah, love that
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 1:31pm doctorjazz:

Enjoying the music, by the way!
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 1:33pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

It was the lack of pound signs. Glad it's better now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 1:33pm fred:

Does all this talk mean it's hex enduction hour?
  Wed. 8/3/16 1:33pm Dean:

Ah, so it was the CCCCCC missing a #.

Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 1:38pm jeff-m:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 1:38pm fred:

@Dean: or maybe that the two extra Cs were confusing in this context. CCCC wouldn't be out of place on this show (though probably not right now)
  Wed. 8/3/16 1:40pm Dean:

@fred: Yeah, how come there isn't an HTML style property volume=#LOUD?

@Dean: because everyone would use it, always.

Show is delightful thus far but this Taste in Television is hitting the spot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 1:57pm fred:

@james: agreed! I had never heard of this
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 2:05pm jeff-m:

thanks all- having fun. nice to see some familiar 'faces'
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 2:06pm Brian in UK:

Hello jeff-m.

@james ref your comment about literature and frogs. I agree but that may include my inherent laziness. To define is to destroy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 2:09pm coelacanth:

Jeff i must depart. i'll hear this in the car for a while - could you play some sammy hagar? van halen? i know i can count on you for some bitchin' driving songs!

...Thank you! -Excellent as always.

tchau peeps

Roy was part of one of the great underrated jazz combos of all time IMO--the Contemporary Jazz Quintet, who made two great albums on Blue Note. And he operated a very nice jazz club in Ann Arbor called the Bird of Paradise. Saw a lot of good shows there. "The Free Slave" is great, isn't it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 2:12pm fred:

@Brian: literature and frogs? I'm intrigued, especially as I plan a major book run for tomorrow
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 2:16pm Brian in UK:

@fred, james' comment at 12:28.

Just got Tolstoy's Kreutzer Sonata out of the library, a musical influence book, backwards to Beathoven and forwards to Janecek's Quartets.
On a Russian tip, must re-read Sholokov's Don trilogy, compelling. Not only could Russians scarf down drugs but they could write too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 2:19pm Jeff Golick:

Went to a bookstore last night to hear author Helen DeWitt read from her book, The Last Samurai, recently reissued by New Directions. There is, I understand, must music in it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 2:19pm Jeff Golick:

(Not sure about frogs, though.)

Jeff, enjoying the sounds but got to go and cook some dinner.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 2:44pm Jeff Golick:

When do we start the all-Jeff stream. I would like to be included.
  Wed. 8/3/16 2:46pm Mark R:

"Anyway, People Die" is an upbeat sentiment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 2:48pm fred:

@Jeff: you'd have to bring back the other D:O Jeff, then get Jeff Davison on board. I'll submit that Mayuko translates to Jeff in some language. I'll invent it if needed

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 2:53pm fred:

Current 93... He reminds me of someone I love who really likes his music, but still, I just can't take him seriously. So over the top he makes John Lydon look restrained (I guess the woman I alluded to would turn that statement around, and that would be fair)
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 2:54pm Mayuko:

I'll change my name to Jeff if the US government gives me citizenship and join the wjeffmu. I seem to remember you can do that when you become a citizen.
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 2:55pm Mayuko:

I wish you're staying til 5!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 2:59pm listener james from westwood:

Seconding Mayuko's call for 5!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:01pm fred:

That seems to be a thing over here too: I knew a woman who changed her first name from Savonn to Marion when she got naturalized. That was weird
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:04pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Lucky that the government doesn't assign names to newcomers, like in that movie where they gave someone the name Sam Francisco.
  Wed. 8/3/16 3:04pm Dean:

Brings to mind, for some reason, the story of US game show hosts Jack Narz and Tom Kennedy, who were brothers. (Kennedy is still alive.) Upon learning this, some unfortunate soul asked, "Which one changed his name?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:05pm fred:

Then again, "savon" means "soap" in french, and she was tired of the jokes
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 3:05pm listener james from westwood:

@Fred: Alien Nation was that one! They had a TV show, too. James Caan and Mandy Patinkin sat out for that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:07pm Stanley:

Ah, Ash Ra!
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 3:12pm Mayuko:

Mayuko becoming Jeff might be weird too, but it's more moderate than to change your name into Tibet I think. I just hope you're all ok with having yet another Jeff on WFMU.
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 3:14pm jeff-m:

I think your boyfriend would object, Mayuko

I knew a girl who was dating / engaged to David from c93. Perhaps her name would have been Jessica Tibet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:16pm fred:

@Mayuko: As long as it's your show, I don't really care about the name
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 3:18pm Ike:

I was almost named Geoff. I'm glad that didn't happen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:19pm fred:

Also, is a guy who calls himself Genesis P-Orridge gave you a name, would you expect moderate? Tibet looks quite tame
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 3:19pm Mayuko:

Jessica Tibet doesn't sound right to me. David wasn't born with that name "Tibet" but it was given, no? Can all his family member call themselves Tibet if they wanted to? What do they have to do with Tibet anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 3:20pm Artie Haywire:

Lumerians reminding me of The LimiƱanas. Which is a very good thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:21pm fred:

What does Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has to do with logic or sense?
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 3:23pm jeff-m:

I forgot what his real last name is anymore. Went through a few diff last names, that one stuck in the mid to late 80's. Doesn't bring a picture of anything in my mind anymore.

Gen's is a stylized 'porridge' i always heard... from being a broke artist. Not too sure anymore.
  Wed. 8/3/16 3:26pm Dean:

Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 3:29pm Mayuko:

@fred haha! the US gov should hire Genesis to assign names to newcomers just for irrational fun. Although I probably won't get Jeff that way.
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 3:31pm jeff-m:

wonder if he has citizenship himself after all these years?
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 3:36pm jeff-m:

getting a bit a tired- gonna have my self a Spectrum frenzy for a bit. Thanks everyone for hanging out and listening
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:36pm fred:

Himself? I think s/he's saying s/he's beyond genders now. Which might be an issue with government forms. I saw them both playing a few years before she died, and I thought it was just sad. He looked like an old man with breasts, she looked raw and frankly not the equal part s/he has put forward
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:40pm fred:

But I thought you would keep going up to 5, by popular acclaim?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:41pm doctorjazz:

Thanks for the show, been enjoying it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/3/16 3:47pm fred:

Another track that reminds me of B.A.D.'s Rush for no reason I can think of
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 3:53pm Jeff Golick:

Now thinking of an all-Jeff musicians show. Three hours of Jeff "Tain" Watts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/3/16 3:53pm Jeff Golick:

Or maybe everyone associated with WFMU gets the same last name, a la The Ramones et al.
Avatar Wed. 8/3/16 3:54pm jeff-m:

haven't been able to get back on schedule for years. don't see a full stream in my future ;)
