I don't know if the tour staging will be as elaborate as the BAM two-night series, which was absolutely incredible musically, sonically and visually. It was theatrical in scope. And the songs are up to Stephin's astral standards.

haha! did he just throw in some autotune?! (as mockery i presume)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 3:47pm Irwin:

Then again, I rarely understand Neil Young lyrics. I'm still trying to figure out "Broken Arrow" and "Last Trip to Tulsa."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 3:48pm Linda Lee:

it's not the first time he's done autotune, tho
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 3:48pm Alison Porchnik:

I don't know what the fark this is about but I like it. Sounds like an old guy on a park bench rambling on, and you don't know whether he's talking to you or not, so you just smile and not without making eye contact.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 3:51pm Linda Lee:

should say, it's not the first time he's used digital vocal manipulation. autotune is just the latest possibility.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 3:51pm coelacanth:

his reference to lynard skynard kind of personalized it though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 3:53pm coelacanth:

still i can't imagine it - and haven't heard it.
i think he'd be so opposed to it...it's indirectly what the whole song's about.

You've all switched the places of cause and effect. Neil Young isn't using Autotune to distort his vocals. Autotune was created to allow other singers to achieve a semblance of Young's timbre.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 3:59pm coelacanth:

that must be 80s' Neil. no i haven't heard it, or i'd have heard him using vocal manipulation?
...anyway, that sounds like conceptual use, so exempt from my presumption!

Really, my pleasure. I love dipping into the (c) records via HathiTrust. On the same page, an entry for a song titled, "If Trouble Were Money." It includes a parenthetical, "If trouble was money," which makes me wonder whether there was some dispute about subjunctive mood!

yo v.p.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 5:30pm Irwin:

I think the Hondells originally. Maybe one of those Gary Usher groups.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...best solo since 'I Can See for Miles'...well, same one really...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 5:31pm Irwin:

Yes, Hondells w/Gary Usher, who worked a lot with Brian Wilson early on. en.wikipedia.org...

this one's a beauty.

when the who did their first encore at shea they did this one
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They'd deffo picked up on 'Pet Sounds' - but also like an Anglo church choir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:36pm Linda Lee:

i don't think i'll ever forget seeing Keith Moon on drums. spectacular drummer.
  Wed. 12/7/16 5:38pm flashbazbo:

Irwin. Last week you said you had never pronounced Pete towns heads name. Can this mean you have never played a cut from who came first on your show? If not, well...
  Wed. 12/7/16 5:38pm Dan from Toronto:

Sounds good, Irwin
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:39pm Carmichael:

Never saw Moon, but played with Entwhistle once at an all-star mega jam thing in about 1999 or 2000. And I was not one of the all-stars, more like a guest non-star.
  Wed. 12/7/16 5:39pm Mark R:

Love this Washed Out track, too. Actually, the whole album's quite good. You're encouraging me to drag it out of mothballs (I think it's only about 3 or 4 years old!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 5:40pm chris:

superlative picks, Irwin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:40pm Linda Lee:

really! how was it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:41pm Linda Lee:

love that phrase ~ a guest non-star. :-)

@ andrew - yes!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:42pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...wait - whut?! Bad enuff somebody saw the Who w/ Moon - but played w/ Entwistle!?! ...I'ma die...& we was gettin' along...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:44pm Linda Lee:

at least we're not the same person Rev. that would be just shameful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:50pm Carmichael:

Was that question meant for me, Linda? It was fun, lotsa different songs for the all stars who were performing. I got to play on an Ambrosia song (How Much I Feel), Heart's Crazy on You, Who's Boris the Spider, and a bunch of Beatle tunes at the end of the show. It was a kick.
  Wed. 12/7/16 5:50pm Mark R:

This last hour is just killing me--every single track is beautiful, such a nice flow between old and new, rock and jazz--this to me is what a great freeform set is all about.

i believe i need this Morgan Rewind collection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:51pm Linda Lee:

sounds like a blast! those are some fun songs. what do you play?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 5:51pm Irwin:

M-98145: There's a vol. 1, and I can't find it anywhere.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:51pm Carmichael:

You always play great jazz, Irwin. I get a lesson every week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 5:52pm Michael 98145:

what Carmichael said
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:52pm Carmichael:

I play guitar, like everyone else on earth ... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 5:52pm Irwin:

Incidentally, "Libreville" is not a Lee Morgan tune. It's one of several Magris originals on the album, and they're damned good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 5:53pm Passaic River Blues:

@Carmichael: Word. While I am not always 100% behind some of the rock selections, I think Irwin has an inerrant ear for jazz.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/7/16 5:53pm chris:

picking up on what folks are putting down here: anytime you wanna put on a three hour jazz/bop in-service, Irwin, we're game.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:53pm Linda Lee:

rhythm guitar mainly?

thanx for the swell sonics, Irwin!

Thank you, Irwin!

Great FMU jazz on Sunday mornings with Jeff Golick and D:O Radio. But it's a particular species of jazz...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 5:59pm Linda Lee:

Dean ~ i'll take it!
  Wed. 12/7/16 6:00pm Dean:

Tune in, Linda! Jeff's a terrific DJ.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/7/16 6:00pm coelacanth:

D.O is all excellent, though it's far from all jazz.
