When I heard Space guitar by Young John Watson, I realised why he got this extra name Guitar. I mean: this was in 1954! Why didn't this track receive more credits? It's one of the best instrumentals ever made.

Lee Hazlewood has been on my playlist for a loooong time ...

Lee is the man! The closing track of that 'Again' album is wonderful, giddy, charming, intimate.

I saw Lee play at Nick Cave's Meltdown Festival in London, supported by, of all people, Harry Dean Stanton. Quite a night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/2/16 4:53pm Rob Kopp:

Thanks to Lee I have Ann-Margret's single You turned my head around. Love his original version of Pour man on his LP Love and other crimes (covered by Tav Falco)

Sheila your notes for One Kiss Can Lead to Another were invaluable to my editing this wiki page:
and I can't recommend Kirsten Zemke highly enough either... she's a pop culture maven as much as a musicologist...

This instrumental breakdown KILLLLLLLS ME!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/2/16 5:02pm Carmichael:

That's Lenny Zakatek on vocals, David Paton on bass Eric Woolfson and AP on keys, and Stuart Tosh on drums. Ian Bairnson gets the guitar solo.

Nice AP cut!

Oops, self-correcting. Got the wrong Stuart on drums; Stuart Tosh left for 10cc before this album, replaced by Cockney Rebel's Stuart Elliott.
Avatar Fri. 12/2/16 5:07pm Dano59:

Saw Alan with A Walk Down Abbey Road Tour (with Todd, Ann Wilson, Ox) - stellar!
  Fri. 12/2/16 5:09pm Jay S.:

Can your continued, over the top championing of the Alan Parsons Project actually be some sly Andy Kaufman-esque performance art routine? Because, after 40 years, I'm still not hearing it in the grooves.

Beautiful quote. I'll keep it. I'm sure it will help me to start with PLATENBOEK part 4 (the sixties after the sixties)
Avatar Fri. 12/2/16 5:11pm Linda Lee:

hey there! really great quote from Martha Graham! need to find that one & post it myself!
Avatar Fri. 12/2/16 5:12pm djsheilab:

Here is it! “There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. ... No artist is pleased. [There is] no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others”
