Don't take the brown sequins...

Is this before or after he got Matt Damon a face lift?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:19pm Funky16Corners:

Right around the same time. The entire procedure was scored with covers of songs from the Woodstock soundtrack
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:19pm Uncle Michael:

This sounds...familiar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:20pm Funky16Corners:

A recent GTDR spin?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:20pm Uncle Michael:

Only a couple of hundred times. ;-) It's my closing theme.

We're clearly in some kind of time loop.

Larry, you probably introduced me to I Guess I'm Dumb. I love it so, so much.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:24pm Uncle Michael:

Brian at his Bacharachiest.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:24pm Funky16Corners:

It really is a beautiful song/record
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:24pm Funky16Corners:

And in my defense, most Fridays at 3:00 I'm getting the kids off the bus
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:25pm Uncle Michael:

I know. No harm, no foul.
  Wed. 6/21/17 10:26pm cupcakejenny:

Miles is enjoying heroes and villains. Sean too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:26pm Funky16Corners:

Big fave hereabouts
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:33pm Uncle Michael:

Oh, Well was the only Fleetwood Mac single to chart stateside before Over My Head in '76.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:34pm Funky16Corners:

I did not know that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:35pm Uncle Michael:

Neither did I. I just opened my Whitburn book and looked it up!
  Wed. 6/21/17 10:35pm cupcakejenny:

Omg you should have seen Sean's face when I rewound what you said mentioning them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:35pm Funky16Corners:

Cool!

He's ok lol

Seaney doesn't like it when I disappear into my lair
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:38pm Uncle Michael:

You're not piping the show through the whole house?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:40pm Uncle Michael:

You'd think he'd be cool with two hours a week dad's not bugging him. I know I would be!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:40pm Funky16Corners:

Now that summer's here and the boys can stay up later, maybe we should
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:41pm Uncle Michael:

"Dad's on the radio." might be pretty cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:41pm northguineahills:

You know if I was deejaying a show from my domicile, it would be piped throughout my abode, actually it already is 50% of the time. (it is a wee late, I suppose).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

Mom's streaming it for them upstairs
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

I'm sure they're all doing the boogaloo
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:42pm Uncle Michael:

Albatross>Black Magic Woman>Black Magic Woman>Oye Como Va>Oye Como Va would be some sweet segues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:43pm Funky16Corners:

Good idea!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:44pm Uncle Michael:

I haven't done a linkage show on GDTR. That goes into the queue. A covers B, B covers C, C covers D... Z covers A...maybe.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:45pm Funky16Corners:

I eagerly await it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:45pm Uncle Michael:

That's going to take some planning.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/21/17 10:53pm Uncle Michael:

I'm pushing the keyboard away. Keep the faith!

Thanks, Larry. Night all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 10:53pm Funky16Corners:

I hope you had a good day!

If anyone's awake, this is where you start dancing.
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:25pm Jeff Ash:

Trust me, I did not see any of these 45s in that huge collection I was digging through the other day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

You got some good stuff. That Lavern Baker was a very respectable catch on the cheap
  Wed. 6/21/17 11:26pm Mr. Boogaloo:

FYI: Wayne Bennett played with Bobby Blue Bland from around 1958 to at least 1965. Heavy cat. Had not heard this solo outing before. Thanks for playing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:27pm Funky16Corners:

You're welcome! Thanks for the info!
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:27pm Jeff Ash:

I just got lucky. Guy who had that collection was really into novelty records. They just found more and put them out. I'll have to go through those, too. And I'm not even a 45 guy.
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:27pm geezerette:

Hey, here for now, archive later.
Thanks Larry!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, what a voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

A big presence in my childhood. One of the first songs I remember is Monday Monday, and my Mom used to play her greatest hits LP 'Mama's Big Ones' all the time
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:37pm geezerette:

That 60's sound seems so romantic now, so foreign.

Peggy Lipton was married to Quincy Jones.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:37pm northguineahills:

If I don't make it back, thanks Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:38pm Funky16Corners:

My pleasure! Thanks for coming!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:39pm Funky16Corners:

Geezerette - The Peggy Lipton LP I have is quite good. She had talent
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:39pm geezerette:

hi/bye NGH :)
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:42pm geezerette:

She'd have to be musical to be Mrs. Jones.

Jennifer Warnes too, great set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:42pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:43pm Funky16Corners:

That early Jennifer Warnes stuff doesn't get the shine it deserves
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:43pm geezerette:

I agree!
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:45pm geezerette:

wow, great version!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

The original demo. It's just a hair short of being finished
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:46pm geezerette:

she must have written it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

She did indeed!
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:48pm Doug Schulkind:

This has been one helluva sequence, Sir.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:49pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Doug!
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:51pm geezerette:

So much of this music is Bacharach inflected.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:52pm Funky16Corners:

Def in that same amorphous cloud of chord changes, melodies and the musical zeitgeist
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/21/17 11:54pm Funky16Corners:

This is church right here.
Avatar Wed. 6/21/17 11:55pm geezerette:
