Not TOO on point tonight, man. This is fantastic.

Jaw-dropping liner notes on the German Oak album. Apparently it says "We dedicate this record to our parents which had a bad time in World War 2."
Understatement of all time.

I'm thinking of Neil of the Young Ones speaking: "Dedicated to our mums and dads who had a Bad Time in w.w. two."

Hey, Simon,

No, trash here just beautiful people..

Sounds a little like Robin Trower's "Bridge Of Sighs".

We know where this is going. La Donald discovers that being President kinda sucks for a person of his temperament. Finds a plausible excuse not to run again. Mike Pence runs against whoever. If he wins, you'll be be missing the Trump presidency in next to no time.
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 12:59am slowbear:

If I had to guess I would say that the DNC's going to invest a lot of time and money into running Corey Booker and Elizabeth Warren... unfortunately I don't think either would win (and I'm not a booker fan).
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 1:00am slowbear:

I think Warren is a very regulatory-minded politicians and it will bore the crap out of voters the same way Hillary did.
Avatar    Mon. 1/30/17 1:00am tuner fish:

do you think Bernie might run again, and would he have a better chance?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/30/17 1:01am Scraps:

Simon: All too plausible. Still, Trump has to think of a way that not running for re-election doesn't mean he's given up or lost.
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 1:01am slowbear:

Man I hope Bernie runs. I hope that guy is getting some exercise. But who knows.
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 1:02am slowbear:

I think Trump is actually realizing that this is the easiest job ever for him, and that he just has to do whatever Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway tell him, and read off the teleprompter
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 1:02am slowbear:

Although I think he's a giant baby behind closed doors

Hi, Jeff and ghettozens. Been waiting for some Allmans. Thanks for putting this together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/30/17 1:15am pacific standard simon:

I think it's 50/50 Trump has a heart attack and dies in office. He always looks awful, and he's already got the White House loaded with Doritos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/30/17 1:18am pacific standard simon:

DJ premium: bands with two drummers. Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Mothers of Invention. Who else?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/30/17 1:19am Scraps:

You don't know what's going on in Truck's mind or body. Especially at 69.

I am in constant pain. If I eventually kill myself, it will not be because haven't thought it through. I think you should respect his decision, not knowing him. Basically, people wanting him to change his thought is selfish, by accusing him of selfishness.

Go in peace, Jeff. I don't think i will change your mind, but it's a personally important issue.
  Mon. 1/30/17 1:19am Dean:

The only AB album I ever owned (prior to relatively recently acquiring Live at Fillmore East) was Brothers & Sisters. I never thought twice about *later* AB records. Meanwhile, I always admired the older records with Duane. This taste of the stuff I deliberately avoided is really pleasant.

Two drummers: Genesis, post-Gabriel w/ Collins and Chester Thompson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/30/17 1:20am pacific standard simon:

Weather Report.
  Mon. 1/30/17 1:20am Dean:

...and Led Zeppelin. John Bonham. Two drummers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/30/17 1:21am ausmanx:

the greatest use of two drummers? The Fall on HEX ENDUCTION HOUR
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 1:22am Jeff Conklin:

@Scraps: That is true, I don't know. I just find it so sad, you make a good point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/30/17 1:23am ausmanx:

only just arrived, missed the commentary and can't piece it together from the playlist. i wonder what's been said?
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 1:25am Jeff Conklin:

You missed me saying I don't really care for The Fall except for a bout 3 songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/30/17 1:26am pacific standard simon:

I had to think about the suicide thing after Robin Williams. What he was going through was awful, but what he left behind was awful, too. Fortunately, I am not a moral authority in anybody's book.
  Mon. 1/30/17 1:28am mitch:

nice brazil track
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/30/17 1:28am ausmanx:

gotta respect anyone who's listened to every Fall song!
  Mon. 1/30/17 1:30am Dean:

Never thought of The Fall as a band one "cared for" at all. I mean, if there was ever a sui generis rock band, it's The Fall. They won me over with "Repetition," but otherwise I'd be perpetually wondering..."Huh?"
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 1:30am Jeff Conklin:

@ausmanx: Ha. Life's too short for that. I don't need to taste every oyster in the sea to know it tastes like shit to me ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/30/17 1:32am pacific standard simon:

That sounds like an awesome lyric, Jeff.
Avatar Mon. 1/30/17 1:33am Jeff Conklin:

That said, I absolutely adore "My New House' and listen to it fairly often.

Quick hello/goodbye afore work.
Steely Dan two drummers live. Really.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/30/17 1:39am ausmanx:

true enough, i imagine i've heard enough Allman Brothers to know they taste like shit to me, but then the Allman Brothers haven't been around for 42 years and gone through dozens of line-up changes. if they had, i would perhaps be more cautious...

I often wish that Jefferson Airplane had had two drummers. Spencer was great in his own way, but he could have used some support from someone like Aynsley Dunbar, for example.
  Mon. 1/30/17 2:06am Mark R:

Simon, you're back! I was going to send out a search party...

I go through these stretches where I can't do comments. Try to get out of them before the pledge drive.

If you meant me, I haven't gone. Just listening, in my bed. If you didn't mean me, of course, I'm still listening in my bed. Cheers.

"If you meant me" , that is, Jeff

Nice to see both of you, actually.

My favorite jazz band of the nineties, The Henry Threadgill Sextett, had two drummers, Reggie Nicholson and Pheeroan AkLaff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/30/17 2:25am Scraps:

But the next Henry Threadgill band, the Very Very Circus, had two tuba players! Now that's awesome.

Henry Threadgill has always been seriously badass.

(When I said " of the nineties", I meant "of the eighties". Sheesh.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/30/17 2:30am ausmanx:

i guess when Boredoms had 77 drummers, that's taking you into slightly different territory...

While I listen to this show every week, tonight had a nice twist, listening while driving down the Baja California coastline, from San Diego to Ensenada. Lovely stuff.
