Oh, that must've been a stream track.

Hi David! Got my ticket.

Take it away, David! Have a wonderful show!!!
  Tue. 5/9/17 4:03pm melinda:

I love Yellow Sarong.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:03pm David D:

Thanks Cheyenne! And hello and welcome everyone!
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:04pm Doug Schulkind:

How could something sarong sound so right?
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:08pm βrian:

You mean sari?
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:09pm Cheyenne:

#SariNotSari
  Tue. 5/9/17 4:10pm melinda:

This is beautiful.
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:12pm Doug Schulkind:

O caftan! My caftan!
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:12pm βrian:

Jaune, jaune, jaune? I'll try not to take a jaundiced view.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:14pm doctorjazz:

Lovet his L'Afrique style, chiming guitars, lovely harmony vocals!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:15pm David D:

βrian: A shirt by any other name...
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:16pm Cheyenne:

Isn't this style called "Highlife"? Or am I confusing that with a particular champagne of beers not to be named here?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:18pm David D:

Doctojazz: Yes, rocking that yellow!

Cheyenne: I think it's a cavacha rhythm, but it's getting me high!
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:23pm βrian:

Any Yellow Tango on tap?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:26pm David D:

Amber beer perhaps...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:28pm doctorjazz:

I have an old series, Sounds D'Afrique at home on vinyl, exactly that style, just love it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:30pm David D:

Sounds great - who is on it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:34pm doctorjazz:

These are them. They're great albums, I'm sure they just scratch the surface.
I especially love Lea Lignanzi- Dede Priscilla
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:36pm David D:

Hello Melinda! Just read your comment, not sure which track, though... And sorry if I missed anyone else, I'm still getting the hang of this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:36pm David D:

Thanks, doctorjazz, I will try to track them down...
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:38pm βrian:

Ah, when she says habibi ...
  Tue. 5/9/17 4:44pm melinda:

I think it was the Mellow Yellow I was referring to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:45pm David D:

Yes, the harmonies! Other Mellow Yellows to come...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:45pm Parq:

Crowdsource time: I have a friend who is willing to bring me back some local music when she visits family in Ghana this summer. Can anyone recommend must-have stuff from those environs?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:49pm David D:

Hello Parq! Good question - I personally would look for surprises I can't find anywhere else, maybe anything that looks 70s and forgotten...
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:52pm geezerette:

wow! great cover :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:53pm David D:

Hello geezerette!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:53pm doctorjazz:

All sorts of little symbols over the letters of the names.
Does rock out Donovan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 4:53pm Parq:

Yeh, that's the problem -- my friend is not a record person. It's like asking a guy who never dresses in more than jeans and work shirts to pick you out a really nice tie.
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:54pm geezerette:

Howdy David!
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 4:59pm Mayuko:

I guess nothing strange about it but still feels a little strange that it's so late at night over there while we listening to the music together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 5:05pm David D:

Mayuko! Yes, it is indeed a bit strange, but I'm so used to the 6-hour conversion that it's almost normal for me. So I guess I'm the strange one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 5:07pm David D:

Parq: Maybe that's the random element needed to find something truly noteworthy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 5:42pm Parq:

Really enjoying this show, by the way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 5:44pm David D:

Thanks, Parq - glad you like it!
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 5:53pm geezerette:

"Reggaelypso" sounds like a Mariachi waltz for Dia De Los Muertos.
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 5:58pm Doug Schulkind:

He says MAR-a-thin
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:01pm David D:

@geezerette: Yes, and as performed in Scotland!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:01pm Parq:

Doug: Then again, Billy Jam says MAHR-thon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:02pm David D:

@Doug: Thanks! I will try to get that right next time - or I may just say Texas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:07pm doctorjazz:

This is just beautiful, both tracks of this set so far!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:10pm northguineahills:

So true, Parq!
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 6:13pm geezerette:

docjazz,yes indeed.

hi to Parq & ngh!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:13pm David D:

Greetings northguineahills!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:14pm David D:

Sitting back with my headphones on, glad you're enjoying this too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:22pm Stanley:

Just checking in to say hello and that I'm very much enjoying the show.
So many new bands and artists. Just the way I like it.
(Recognised the 17 Hippies, though)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:29pm David D:

Hello Stanley - glad you like it that way. Have you seen the film that goes with the 17 Hippies track (Halbe Treppe/Grill Point)?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:30pm David D:

en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 6:41pm geezerette:

My mind was projecting a Dada ballet all through Bubu piece. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:42pm David D:

Here's that yellow tango!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:42pm David D:

@Geezerette: That's the spirit of it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:44pm northguineahills:

A little late, (as I hadn't noticed the playlist much), but Fahey's "Yellow Princess" would also work.
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 6:45pm geezerette:

Gorgeous tango.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:45pm David D:

And Dada ballet sounds like something I'd buy tickets for.
  Tue. 5/9/17 6:46pm Doctorjazz:

great. Bennie Wallace.
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 6:47pm geezerette:

haha, so would I.

ngh, since I'll probably listen again I'll keep that in mind!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:48pm David D:

Only Big Jim can tango to this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:49pm David D:

I guess there will have to be a yellow sequel after all. Other colors to get to first...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:49pm Stanley:

Hi David. Not familiar with that 17 Hippies film but will look it up.
Love this Bennie Wallace (Hadn't heard of him before, either)
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 6:50pm geezerette:

same here!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:51pm David D:

Yes, if I recall correctly, they even appear as a band throughout the film. Interesting stuff...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:53pm David D:

Thanks everyone for tuning in and hanging out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/9/17 6:55pm northguineahills:

Thanks David!
Avatar Tue. 5/9/17 6:59pm Mayuko:

Thanks David!
