You discover all kinds of crazy things. For a while my wife and I were hooked on these old Ann Sothern 'Maisie' movies they played on Saturday mornings
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 10:46pm still b/p:

In a conversation last evening, a friend and I were relating scenes from Palm Beach Story and insisting to another friend who's otherwise quite familiar with such things that he HAS to see it. And where did I see it, several times? Gimme a T...gimme a C...

Loner... I could read this multiple ways. Such a distinctive sound.
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 11:25pm Funky16Corners:

It's all kind of hippy dippy. I go through the stacks looking for something cool I haven't played/want to play, then think about what fits with it, thematically/sonically
Avatar    Wed. 8/16/17 11:26pm geezerette:

Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 11:27pm Funky16Corners:

I try to do it set by set though, so I have a couple of different kinds of sets in the show. I always try to make the last set kind of a "head" set
  Wed. 8/16/17 11:27pm melgrog:

I figured you let your encyclopedic music brain take you from stepping stone to stepping stone. :)
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 11:27pm Funky16Corners:

It's all kind of using my mental rolodex and following the vibe

Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 11:42pm still b/p:

My whole life I don't know the "Darling Be Home Soon" lyrics said ..."you dawdled" and then "...I toddled." Could never hear what it was. Now I've looked it up and the audio blur is cleared up. One less mystery. Is that good or bad?
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 11:42pm Funky16Corners:

Good. I discover stuff like that all the time

Is there an alternate take on one of the comps, or the boxed set?
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 11:45pm still b/p:

The good part is the unexpected. I didn't just say"oh, okay." I says, "dawdled/toddled...? No kiddin?! Huh!"
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 11:45pm Funky16Corners:

It's a great rhyme
Avatar Wed. 8/16/17 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

Mel - these tracks were recorded from a weird 1970 Best of the VU that MGM put out, so it's possible there are different mixes than the LPs: www.discogs.com...
  Wed. 8/16/17 11:47pm melgrog:

Trying to find it now to see if I'm thinking of a different song or a different version
