Getting in early, eh?

Best seat in the house.

Stretch out. Put your feet up. Help yourself to whatever's in the fridge.

Thanks, I have champagne.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:04pm Funky16Corners:

Mmmm. I just have my diet Coke.

Wall to wall Wade in the Waters?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:07pm Funky16Corners:

Hang tight. Water's gonna get even deeper.

hi everyone. haven't listened to this john bishop lp in a while!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:13pm Funky16Corners:

Hey J! Yeah, LP is far superior to the bad 45 edit that I foolishly chased for a while
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:15pm Funky16Corners:

Somebody ought to do a boxed set on TRC/Tangerine. Very interesting label
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:18pm JtotheK:

now that you mention it - i've never actually looked up the tangerine discography. but i tend to at least give a listen to the 45s on the label when i come across one i haven't seen before.
Avatar Wed. 9/27/17 10:19pm still b/p:

I voted for the Salem Travelers version. But who knows what the Electoral College will do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:19pm Uncle Michael:

Speaking of box sets...the new Isaac Hayes...wow.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:19pm JtotheK:

*still hasn't found Louis Jordan '65 Bars' on Tangerine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:20pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Still b/p! One more coming. Hold the tally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:21pm Funky16Corners:

Louis Jordan was all over the place in the 60s. He has some stuff on Pzazz, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:22pm JtotheK:

One more...I will guess either Ramsey Lewis, or Marlena Shaw. (And probably be wrong.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:22pm Funky16Corners:

Clover, buncha San Fran hippies
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:25pm Uncle Michael:

I didn't know Clover existed as early as 1970. Huey in the band then? McPhee? Alex Call?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:26pm Uncle Michael:

Call and McFee, yes...Huey, no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:29pm coelacanth∅:

clover just played on Elvis' first one. the whole album's a demo.

...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:30pm coelacanth∅:

hi Larry! and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:30pm Funky16Corners:

Huey didn't join up until a year or two later. Clover goes back to 1967, though I don't believe the recorded until 1969
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:30pm Funky16Corners:

Hi C!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:32pm Uncle Michael:

I do not believe MAIT is demos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:33pm Funky16Corners:

According to Wiki they were rerecordings of EC demos (with Clover this time)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:34pm coelacanth∅:

well, i wasn't there; but apparently the record company (stiff) asked Elvis to record it (they booked clover for it) to try to convince Dave Edmonds to record some of the material...or something like that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:35pm Alex In Illinois:

We just danced to the Staple Singers version of For What It's Worth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:35pm Uncle Michael:

Never hear that tale. I understood EC was Basher's to produce.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:36pm Funky16Corners:

Hi Alex!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:38pm coelacanth∅:

that staples' track was Brilliant! (that statement is redundant though)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:39pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, love the Staples, esp their Epic period
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:39pm northguineahills:

Only have heard the Byrds' version.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:39pm Funky16Corners:

Hey NGH! Of which song?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:40pm coelacanth∅:

buffalo springfield track, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:40pm northguineahills:

Poco's
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:41pm northguineahills:

oh, wait, coel is correct as per usual.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:41pm coelacanth∅:

hahaha! duh...i just realised what you're doing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

Yes, this set is all Buffalo Springfield songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:42pm northguineahills:

I even have the Buffalo Springfield Box set...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:42pm Funky16Corners:

I love this Yes version
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:42pm Funky16Corners:

Excellent boxed set. Worth having even if you have the LPs
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

ngh is the long(est) version of bluebird on that? it seems pretty difficult to find.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:44pm Funky16Corners:

You can get it on the 2-LP Buffalo Springfield set that came out in 1972. Still pretty easy to track down
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:44pm northguineahills:

I need a tulpa to help me put my furniture together so I can put my turntables up to my hi-fi (first world problems)

@coel: Crap, that one is very damn long, it might be....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:44pm Funky16Corners:

I think I played the long Bluebird a while back
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:47pm Uncle Michael:

Play a whole set of Clancy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

One of Neil's earliest songs
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:48pm Uncle Michael:

What Expecting To Fly will we get?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:48pm Funky16Corners:

None tonight (he said sheepishly)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/27/17 10:49pm coelacanth∅:

i don't know why that bluebird's been illusive to me then. (maybe because i've been reluctant to duplicate what's on the albums...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:50pm Uncle Michael:

Early Bonnie makes me mooney like a schoolboy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:50pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, right?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:51pm Uncle Michael:

An her second album...killer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:53pm Uncle Michael:

I hung out with an old friend in L.A. this spring who had dated her for a while in the '80s. She even came to play a show with him in Lawrence, KS back then. I wasn't there but my mrs. was.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:53pm Funky16Corners:

I only saw her once, in 1979
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:54pm Uncle Michael:

I've seen her a few times...but nothing as intimate as that bar gig I missed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:55pm Funky16Corners:

I'd love to see her do a solo acoustic show
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:56pm Uncle Michael:

The friend I visited is very tight with Mike Finnigan, and plays with him often...who's in her touring band these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 10:56pm Uncle Michael:

acoustic would be nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 11:01pm Uncle Michael:

"In 2009, [Hugh Hefner] received a "worst supporting actor" nomination for a Razzie award for his performance as himself in Miss March. On his official Twitter account he joked about this nomination: 'Maybe I didn't understand the character.'"

iTunes went haywire, missed the last few tracks, glad I got the end of the Otis Clay. Good one Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/27/17 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, my fave version of that song

Man, she sounds like Bonnie Raitt. Or vicey versey.

Dean, vice versa, Etta predates Bonnie significantly
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 12:02am coelacanth∅:

i never thought of Etta whilst hearing Bonnie...or vicey versy.
i have to try that out!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 9/28/17 12:04am Funky16Corners:

I think Bonnie is a somewhat softer voice, but I think Etta was an influence, esp on the ballads
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/28/17 12:09am coelacanth:

okay - still can't hear it! -but i'm only somewhat familiar with Bonnie's music...like 2 albums' worth, kind of...
i'm in no position to deny it, for sure!

...'night!
