Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/18/16 9:09am doctorjazz:

Saw a great show this week, Richard Thompson, he took requests from the audience on slips of paper, put them in a bowl and played the ones he picked. Great version of "You'll Never Walk Alone" off the cuff, also great "And Your Bird Will Sing", had some trouble with The BEatles "I Will", but it was really fun. Worth catching if he's in the neighborhood.
Avatar Fri. 11/18/16 9:11am Doug Schulkind:

I'd call him a racist pig, Mr C, but that would be an offense against pigs.

Sounds wonderful.

@Doug, I used to be on a roller derby team called the Mean Mountain Boys. we actually came down and skated against the New York Shock Exchange at the Gotham Girl's secret practice location in Brooklyn.

Them R to Rs are playing separate tapes apparently, but the cords between looked at first glance like slacky tape in some multi-machine delay array gone wrong.

I remember fondly creating long tape loops running tape between multiple decks. Some running many feet across a room. Good times! Hello, still b/p!
Avatar Fri. 11/18/16 9:54am Alex In Illinois:

The vocals on the Chi-Po-Po-Baby song are all in the left, while the instruments are on the right, so you can turn off the left to do karaoke or the right, to reuse the instrumental part.
Avatar Fri. 11/18/16 9:59am Doug Schulkind:

Probably a terribly mastered MP3, Alex in Illinois. So many of the tracks that get shared online are out of phase or worse. I take full responsibility. (Like I said, egg on my faith.)

That track was coming out of the Third Stream tradition. It was a late-'50s/early-'60s movement that brought together elements of "jazz" and "classical."

Hi, Doug. Do you not like the idea of Scott Baio as Secretary of Defense?

It's a small leap from mature to manure, Brian in UK.

Speaking of mature, it's Parq!
