Hey Joe! Great Association tune!

The Gates of Delirium next single side?
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:00am davefromtoronto:

play "lesbian seagull" and it's the perfect single file episode!
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:01am Dennis Diken:

digging all the Little Peggy March action. had a major crush on her when "I Will Follow Him" came out in '63. love that b-side you played. another killer b-side (of "I Wish I Were A Princess") is "My Teenage Castle (Is Tumblin' Down)"
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:03am Brendan:

Lovely fade outro
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:04am Dennis Diken:

another really great Association fall tune is "Autumn Afternoon," a criminally previously unreleased track that appeared a few years back on the Now Sounds 2 CD mono reish of Insight Out
Avatar Mon. 9/25/17 11:15am Joe McG:

@Dennis: Ooh, that's the one reissue on Now Sounds I don't have! I'll need to check it out.

Will Eric Carmen be there with other guests or will he be all by himself? I can’t wait to turn the radio up for that sweet sound.

I saw TH in late 1979. Very glad I did.
Avatar Mon. 9/25/17 11:21am Joe McG:

@paul: Holy cow! @steveo: Wow, all good tunes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:22am steveo:

yeah that was a great TH tune -- not on my radar in 4th grade; @joe i guess 1958 had good taste :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/25/17 11:24am Parq:

I had that Talking Heads live album (may still, not sure). I love the end of "Psycho Killer", just before "Take Me To", when some guy yells out in the audience, "That's the only song they ever play on the radio, dammit!" Not much has changed.
Avatar Mon. 9/25/17 11:27am Joe McG:

@Parq: It's nice to have since the official live LP only has one side from this period.
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:28am Agent Peter:

Sounds like "Fried Neckbones"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:29am Brian in UK:

Hey Joe.
Bit late to the party. Black Flower by Nirvana (UK) or Flowers in the Rain by the Move.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:30am steveo:

enjoying this set -- interesting structure (what is next???)
Avatar Mon. 9/25/17 11:31am Joe McG:

@BrianinUK: Don't worry, you're never too late to this party. Good flower requests!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:31am steveo:

i guess it takes 2 to Tango?
Avatar Mon. 9/25/17 11:32am Joe McG:

@steveo: I really want to break this Tango album, 43 years late.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:34am Brian in UK:

For fear of repeating myself from Bill Mac's show the other day. My ringtone is a tango.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:34am steveo:

I'm really enjoying it, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/25/17 11:36am Parq:

Was trying to figure out who had the well known version of "Greenback". Turns out it was the Kingston Trio. Also turns out that Hoyt Axton had some kind of hit with it.
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:37am melinda:

The first time I heard Greenback Dollar it was someone singing it badly on a camping trip, and it was thus tainted for a long time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:37am Passaic River Blues:

Someone call Light in the Attic--that "Greenback Blues" track would be golden for the next edition of their "Country Funk" collection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:37am Brian in UK:

What no Tango!
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:37am listener monica:

nice set, Joe!
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:37am Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Jerry Reed! I had this album on 8-track as a kid! I love you for this one Joe!
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:37am Itzall Ablurr:

That is certainly a "restrained" version of Jerry Reed. Now, Amos Moses...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:38am Davee:

I thought it was someone else not Jerry Reed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:38am steveo:

here's a long thing about Tango that I am going to read later markguerrero.com...
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:39am Dennis Diken:

here's that Association track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fqo3CNQ_Yu0
Avatar Mon. 9/25/17 11:40am Joe McG:

@Brian: Ha ha, it had to end somewhere. @Karen: It's advertised on the inner sleeve of this LP as being on 8-Track! @monica: Thx! @steveo: Cool, Steveo, I want to read that, too! @Dennis: Cool, thx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/25/17 11:40am Parq:

Dammit, Anita Carter has a voice! I was first hipped to her work when I won the "Songbird" compilation as an Emcee prize during marathon one year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 9/25/17 11:41am Parq:

Melinda, hah! The first time I heard Greenback was when I was taught it by a counselor in summer camp.
  Mon. 9/25/17 11:43am melinda:

@parq it must be a campfire favorite! I like Anita Carter, too, almost didn't recognize her here due to the fancy arrangement and different style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 9/25/17 11:44am Davee:

Ahhhh, Loretta!

Has Strange Fruit been taken, I wonder?
Avatar    Mon. 9/25/17 11:48am Sem Chumbo:

Strange Southern Comfort might be commercially viable.

Wilma and Stoney Lee! They would show upon the Opry into the 1990s.
