Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Jeff - for what it's worth, I saw him do "Superstition" to close his set when he opened for John Lennon in NYC in the early 70s. It knocked me out. 'Course, I was, like, 16, but I think it's available on Youtube. Great moment where he does his walk-off and takes his bows while the band vamps the outro.

  Fri. 1/13/17 1:04pm Dean:

Strut recently did a 3CD set of singles, 1952-1961. The set list is identical to the 65 tune list at the URL you provided. Maybe the v.2 list is incorrect. The notes to v.1 make reference to the incomplete Evidence set. Something like a dozen new tracks on Strut.

Bandcamp is confusing matters by hosting two pages, one for a putative v.1, the other for v.2, but both refer to the full collection. What I don't recall is whether the 3CD set I just acquired specifies a date range on the cover as shown on Bandcamp.

  Fri. 1/13/17 1:31pm Dean:

Irwin replies, "What’s called Vol 2 at the link is vol. 1 and vol. 2 combined." There I see, too, a scope note: "November 25th 2016: - all-encompassing 3CD and digital versions covering Ra’s full output from 1952-1991" Thus, my 3CD set is "all-encompassing."
Avatar Fri. 1/13/17 1:32pm Jeff Golick:

I suspect, @Dean, that the volume split concerns the vinyl editions, as in the photos, even as the bandcamp page(s) list all tunes. It allows the label to have multiple products on one page.

A woman I know and her brother can perform almost any song by doing the hand palm-to-palm squeeze squeak/fart thing. I've thought about recording them doing the big Boho Rhapso.

As John notes, there were discos before there was disco, which probably explains why early news stories about Studio and its ilk referred to "rock music" being played therein.

had to go to the Asian supermarket. while i was in there, i could here someone's voice yammering from a cell phone. Dang, that's annoying, i thought. Someone is rudely playing their cell phone out loud in the market. As the voice kept talking, it started to sound vaguely familiar...

it was Uncle Michael back announcing. Turns out the WFMU app was broadcasting from my back pocket.

Avatar Fri. 1/13/17 2:17pm still b/p:

Disco as we came to know it was definitely a common term with the common associations by mid 70s in then northeast, cuz we were already bitching about the trends and traits. I was surprised when after Saturday Night Fever ('77) there was a second wider wave of attention and emphasis that washed over the media and popular culture.....TV, fashion, nightspots becoming disco-ized. But it was definitely a second wave.

I had no idea this car did not have a CD player and was a bit bummed about that, but this bluetooth thing is gonna change my world for the better methinks.

I don't desire many car bells, whistles and widgets...don't have any in my current vehicle (manual window cranks and lock buttons!..nearly Flinstonian!) but the capability to do FMU while motoring, that would be, oh, great -- a blessing. Don't have a phone suited to it now anyway. Warmly late-adopting in tendency.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 1/13/17 2:41pm Parq:

The funny thing is, when cars had cassette players, there were adapters that made it easy to plug in an iPod or other device with a mini-stereo headphone jack. That became impossible with the switch over to CDs, and you had to use those stupid micro-radio-transmitter things (which never worked well for me) until they came up with the aux jacks.

@Brian in the UK, I think I have that same Toyota, it's called Avalon, got it when my 100 year old mother in law stopped driving, about 10 years old. (it's now my older daughter's bumper car...) Has CD and cassette, tried to use the cassette for a portable player, never worked
