And, THEY'RE OFF! Great start with a deep cut from the Stones.

*my* rolling stones honey! their best era! in my opinion!

How odd. I listened to Between the Buttons a couple of days ago, for the first time in decades.

@Uncle Michael ~ happens a lot here, i find.

Aaah man, Richie Havens what a great voice
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:07am Uncle Michael:

Very true, Linda.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:08am Linda Lee:

this song is *rumored* to be inspired by Allen Ginsberg ~ not sure i buy it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:09am Linda Lee:

people can be silly.

Morning Bob and everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:16am melinda:

I've heard that Just Like a Woman was inspired by Edie Sedgwick.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:18am Linda Lee:

that makes a little more sense.
  Sat. 2/24/18 9:22am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Gritty Herman's Hermits--sounding like they listened to every Everly Brothers record to get harmonies right.
  Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:23am WilliamfromDumont:

Sounds like the Stones backing Herman.
  Sat. 2/24/18 9:25am 1whoknewcthulhu:

The first--original--Moby!

It’s a Beautiful Day today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:29am Linda Lee:

is that Spirit really 61?
Avatar    Sat. 2/24/18 9:40am Dano59:

Maybe Todd Haynes came across that Ginsburg story. I always thought (well, since about '03) it was about Edie Sedgwick
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:42am Linda Lee:

rumor possibly a jab at Allen. again, people can be silly.
  Sat. 2/24/18 9:44am GListener MW:

so loving these TC&I tracks you’ve played, Bob — I have to remember to order the EP this weekend
  Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:44am WilliamfromDumont:

Bob, Between the Buttons was, I believe, recorded entirely in the UK. They hadn't recorded in England since the first LP.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:45am Linda Lee:

image of very British Stones experiencing very sunny, new world 60s Hollywood for recording. irresistible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:45am melinda:

Most likely a jab at Allen.
  Sat. 2/24/18 9:45am Peanut Gallery:

Exactly right GListener MW. Thx for what you do, Bob.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:46am Linda Lee:

.. being Allen he didn't deny it, far as i know :-)
  Sat. 2/24/18 9:48am GListener MW:

great segue into this should’ve-been-a-single XTC track!! Off “Mumler”, is it?
  Sat. 2/24/18 9:49am GListener MW:

Mummer, rather.... damned autocorrect!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:49am Linda Lee:

one nice thing about aging: your solid ego lets you appreciate music you discounted as a youngster. :-)

Mindful that all but 2 cuts in the first hour of programming this morning are from the Brainen Archive.
Avatar    Sat. 2/24/18 9:58am Dano59:

I agree with Linda Lee - I have no compunction at this point about loving the Bee Gees and even, sometimes, Bread.
Avatar    Sat. 2/24/18 9:59am Dano59:

It sure beats arguing with other fans about what is and isn't "rock'n'roll"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 9:59am Davee:

Great show this morning!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 10:00am Roberto:

Per Dano59's point, I listened to Dismal Day by Bread twice in a row yesterday.

  Sat. 2/24/18 10:09am GListener MW:

Agreed Bob, I love XTC’s “Ladybird” — the piano has a great cadence to it, and the song doesn’t really sound like much else they’d ever done or would do later
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sat. 2/24/18 10:09am Linda Lee:

hope they can help out. thanks in advance for donating!

from the Specialty Box?
Avatar Sat. 2/24/18 10:48am SmokinJ:

@ Third World Man: I agree. I'm hoping the station can eventually provide an uncompressed stream. The AAC stream is a step up though.. 8-)
  Sat. 2/24/18 10:50am paul:

Guess not: Annie Is Back (45 Mono Master-Take 7) is in the box set.
