Chad is the drummer. And yes, he played with Zappa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/25/17 3:07pm Lizardner Dave:

Odd coincidence - just finished reading "Zappa the Hard Way" a book about the 1988 tour and consequently was listening to "The Best Band You Never Heard In Your Life" before tuning in here.

That's James Muller on guitar, who replaced Alan Holdsworth in Wackerman's trio.

Wackerman played with Holdsworth, and the guitar player sure sounds like has been influenced by Allan.

There's a great Ragab collection on Art Yard. Every track is prime. Most date from 1968-1972.

Also, RIP Mary Tyler Moore.

Ed wrote the only book on Teddy Reig, "Reminiscing in Tempo." Passed away over the weekend, age 67.

TNX, What a cowinkidink - you had been talking about this Music Factory episode last week.

Been talking about it for weeks. But I never mentioned Ed, so I'm blameless.

I think I read about Reig in a book about Savoy Records specifically or jazz in Newark generally (possibly Barbara Kukla's "Swing City"). Anyway, excited to hear him on TMF this week.

Reig produced tons of stuff for Savoy in the 1940s. That's where he got his start. You can't write a history of Savoy without Reig.

Danny Kirwan is a lost treasure.
Avatar Wed. 1/25/17 3:22pm Irwin:

^ Agreed about Kirwan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/25/17 3:23pm Mike Sin:

I came to this "middle period" Fleetwood Mac quite late. Knew the multi-million dollar era by being a kid in the late '70s and then the "purists" hipped me to the Peter Green era, but this Bob Welch era seemed to pass me by until middle age, as it were. Better late than never. Great album cover on this LP, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/25/17 3:27pm Carmichael:

Kirwan, Spencer and Green are all still alive, though (I think) only Green is still active in music. I was surprised they all made it through the eye of the 60s needle ...
  Wed. 1/25/17 3:28pm Ochre Ogre:

Bare Trees! Great album, including one the best female vocalists in my book, Christen McVie.

There's a John Peel session out there from around the time of the LP that offers a cool version of this track.

Hey Irwin I think you ought to preface today's MF episode with a reefer advisory as well.
Avatar Wed. 1/25/17 3:50pm Irwin:

Reig loved him some reefer, no question.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/25/17 3:50pm Parq:

Jethro Tull was histrionic, vulgar and childishly sexual. And baby, that's rock and roll!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/25/17 3:50pm coelacanth∅:

haha! are you the one who's changed the (grammatically correct) "is" on all the band pages to (the grammatically incorrect)"are"? (ie: fleetwood mac ARE a band...)
Avatar Wed. 1/25/17 3:51pm Irwin:

Brendan: Bunker's solo at Wight is mind-boggling. It's on YT, highly recommended viewing if you appreciate virtuosity on the kit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/25/17 3:53pm Alison Porchnik:

I'm going to call my next Brooklyn-based retro jazz string band Reefer Rendezvous. (Apropos of something almost nobody here knows or cares about.)
Avatar Wed. 1/25/17 3:53pm Irwin:

What about Pastrami Mountain? Different band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/25/17 3:55pm Alison Porchnik:

That's the Brooklyn-based retro borscht-belt indie rock band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/25/17 3:56pm Alison Porchnik:

Different band.

Good god, I am at this very moment researching agunahs, the by-product of Jewish weddings.
Avatar Wed. 1/25/17 4:25pm Irwin:

Producer Jerry Wexler: "Teddy had wonderful taste and cosmic chutzpah. Teddy was the embodiment of Norman Mailer's 'White Negro.' He had a green card into the black nation. He married a black woman and … lived black. Before any of us, he also understood how to make a buck off music—and brilliant music at that. Teddy was a freelancer and a wheeler-dealer who suffered no fools and took no prisoners. He could be rude and crude. He smoked enough reefer to launch a rocket. Some considered him a liar and schemer and self-serving schmuck. I liked him. I liked the music he made. I liked the fact that he delivered. Were it not for guys like him, the world of recorded jazz would be considerably poorer."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/25/17 4:25pm Alison Porchnik:

I love the bass line on this

Avatar Wed. 1/25/17 4:46pm Irwin:

PRB: Not that I'm aware. I haven't heard all eps yet, but based on the upcoming guests, there's hardly a prayer for a Sinner's Crossroad edition.
Avatar Wed. 1/25/17 4:48pm Irwin:

Wilson did produce at least three gospel albums, recorded at a short-lived NYC "gospel nightclub," the Sweet Chariot. All issued on Columbia '63-'64.

Aw, Al's EBay. There's a fan video for this, which consists of a montage of pics, one at a time, of each item mentioned in the song. Of all of them, only one isn't from an actual EBay auction. And no, the one is not Shatner's old toupee.

The summer my folks moved down to Maryland, I didn't know anyone down there and was pretty bummed. I drove around a lot. Bought a cassette of This Year's Model, would listen to "No Action," stop, rewind, listen again, stop, rewind, play, etc. I'd eventually get to "Lip Service" and enjoyed that too.
