I don't know why you'd even entertain any idea of guilt re Benatar. I like that highly produced stuff too. I wondered (haven't though about it in a long time) whether on "We Belong" there was somebody actually keyboarding that very precisely repeated note, or it was done by technologic means; I used to wonder whether the child picking the nose on the video was planned or ad lib.

The album is called Occitanie and yet no use of the Occitanian language! Even Acid Mothers Temple did an album w/ Ocitan lyrics! (I dig France)

A hurdy gurdy is so difficult to tune that hurdy gurdy players spend half their time tuning their instrument – and the other half playing out of tune.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 12/11/17 11:28am steveo:

here's an interesting tidbit from that snopes page relevant to the record we heard

Even prior to his daughter’s death, however, Art Linkletter was vitally concerned with what he saw as the eroding state of family values, and he was actively engaged in lecturing across country on the chosen topic of “Permissiveness in this Society.” (Indeed, he’d been in Colorado to deliver such a talk at the time of Diane’s death.) He had also just released a record called “A Letter to a Teenager” (also known as “We Love You; Call Collect”). The flip side contained a rebuttal performed by Diane, which was called “Dear Mom and Dad.” (Both had been recorded a year or two earlier. The record went on to win “Best Spoken Word Recording” 1969 Grammy honors.)

Brownie’s. Avenue B. Night. Allen Ginsberg approaches my friend (who looks like a young, green-eyed Jagger). Asks about the line up and around the block - “What’s going on?”

Spiritualized.

It makes me feel like the time I first heard Tangerine Dream's Ricochet, their first live album, on a progressive rock show on a Long Beach, CA, radio station, c.1975. Meaning it makes me feel like me one hell of a long time ago.
  Mon. 12/11/17 11:40am exile-on-hicks-st:

@Joe McG Don’t recall the Grand. I did see them a couple years later. Supper Club. Dr. John joined for “Cop Shoot Cop”. They were on Dedicated at the time - distributed by Arista - home of Kenny G, Whitney Houston and Barry Manilow so, you know, perfect fit.

Good chilly West Coast morning, Joe. I see you played Art Linkletter, what could be more American? Was his daughter the one who died from an LSD overdose and ensuing fatal misadventure?

Dean @ 11:40 - I played a full-side track from that album on my college radio show when it was newly released and caught hell for it. That's how square the station was at the time. A charismatic student with hip sensibilities got chosen General Manager a couple of years later and blew all that shit up like Hiroshima.
