Yeah, no disrespect intended here either. In fact, I have a crush on the young lady on the far right.

Y'know what they say, the higher the hair, the closer to god
Avatar Tue. 8/29/17 12:19pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there Cheyenne!

By that logic, though, a dwarf with high hair is further from God than a giant with a crewcut.
  Tue. 8/29/17 12:21pm Dean:

That's a splitting-hairs kind of logic.

it may be relative to the hair-to-height ratio (or creature, as you indicated in your example), not just the height of the being whose hair is reaching for the cosmos

  Tue. 8/29/17 12:34pm Dean:

That Pat Boone segue to the Sharrocks used to be a staple of SoCal FM radio during the '80s.
  Tue. 8/29/17 12:37pm Dean:

The mention of Gordon Alexander brought to mind Gordon Giltrap, whose records I haven't heard in many years, and many of which I've never heard. Worth revisiting some of the familiar ones from the mid-'70s, I'm thinking.
Avatar Tue. 8/29/17 12:37pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, FMU is proud to bring you the smooth sounds.

When I was in high school I had a t-shirt made up with the cover of "Unrest" on it -- so that should tell you something....

Or no, I mean the back cover of Unrest -- the chains....
  Tue. 8/29/17 1:13pm Mark Williams:

the front would make a great shirt too, mind.

Hiya, Elf! I assume, though, that you have ten copies of that record!
  Tue. 8/29/17 1:20pm the Canterbury wood-elf:

It's never far away, but still, hearing it on FMU somehow feels totally different.
  Tue. 8/29/17 1:23pm Santos L Halper:

@Dean 12:37: been meaning to investigate Giltrap since Townshend mentioned in his autobio. Heard some dodgy tv theme stuff, didn't track down the good stuff yet. Also checked out that T Munoz/M Crispell record. Want to explore her further (him too).

Also, hi Tony, digging!

No, it just squicks me out, Tony.
  Tue. 8/29/17 1:45pm Dean:

@Santos: Wow, Townshend mentions him? That's cool. Can't go wrong with Marilyn!

Damn, missed Gianni Gebbia. Heard him several years ago in a coffee shop in Oakland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/29/17 1:48pm Cecile:

this song would be amazing without this chorus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/29/17 2:01pm Cecile:

didn't waterloo turn into another famous band?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/29/17 2:02pm Cecile:

that American Tears was kind of amateurish for a major label, even when they were signing everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/29/17 2:03pm Cecile:

strange but great album cover though.
Avatar Tue. 8/29/17 2:03pm Tony Coulter:

Not sure re Waterloo -- I do know the record may get promoted to upstairs status.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 8/29/17 2:05pm Cecile:

yeah, keep the actual American Tears album in the basement, but the cover can go upstairs.

Fun fact. Dennis Fredricksen, singer for Trillion also was with Toto in the mid 80s.

Speaking of which (proggy, etc.), Steve Hillage played in SF two nights ago as System 7.

geezerette, Gallina 2000, a wigmaker in Mpls made one very similar for a drag queen I know.

@ Cecile: Yep, Michael Brown was still in Stories then. He co-wrote that track, in fact.
Avatar Tue. 8/29/17 2:30pm geezerette:

You'd kind of need 10 inch heels for visual balance.

Are you an Ant Phillips fan, TC?

geezerette, that she has. Also, she's 6'2"

A track I actually remember...the People track (though wouldn't ever have been able to tell you who it was, is it a cover).
Avatar Tue. 8/29/17 2:35pm Tony Coulter:

Not a cover, no -- it's an original.
Avatar Tue. 8/29/17 2:36pm Tony Coulter:

Or maybe you weren't even asking that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Tue. 8/29/17 2:37pm doctorjazz:

I was, I remember the track from years back, sounded like the original, but the group name,People, didn't ring a bell (not so unusual for me to forget stuff these days...)

(not that I didn't forget lots of stuff in the old days...)

Cecile, haha! A goddess! What an art form.
  Tue. 8/29/17 2:41pm Dean:

The Paupers tune reminded me of post-Genesis Phillips. It's contemporary with his founding of Genesis. Used to have a bunch of his LPs, Geese & the Ghost and all, but I wearied of them.
