Hi Erica!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:05pm Funky16Corners:

I remembered your request!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 10:06pm Erica:

Oh hey that's great. It was a suggestion but thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:07pm Funky16Corners:

No probs!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 10:07pm Jeff Ash:

Good evening from Wisconsin!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:08pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Jeff!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 10:14pm Erica:

Orpheus. I've heard one of their songs but not this one before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:14pm Funky16Corners:

Really interesting group from Boston
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 10:21pm Erica:

Thanks for taking my request Larry. Their first couple albums contain (scratch that) ARE rare gems compared to their hits like "Summer Breeze" or "Get Closer".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:22pm Funky16Corners:

My pleasure. If I have it, and it fits in with the theme I'm more than happy to do a little shuffling.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 10:25pm Erica:

:)

Hi folks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:35pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Doc!
  Wed. 8/8/18 10:36pm rw:

Evening! That last one was pretty, uh... not sure of the adjective… melodramatic maybe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:36pm Funky16Corners:

Hey rw! Not as melodramatic as the original by Tim Buckley.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:37pm Funky16Corners:

On might say that Tim had a tendency toward histrioinics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:37pm Funky16Corners:

HISTRIONICS...I cannot/should not type after 10PM
  Wed. 8/8/18 10:39pm rw:

Heading out to pick up my daughter from the airport. Will be listening from the road. Thanks Larry and take care all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 10:40pm Funky16Corners:

Nite rw! Safe travels!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:08pm Funky16Corners:

Anybody out there? You're all so quiet tonight.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:09pm Erica:

I know. I was wondering the same thing.
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:09pm Dean:

I'm here, listening in and out between domestic episodes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:10pm Funky16Corners:

Hi Dean!
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:22pm Dean:

Can't say I remember the arrival of this Dave Mason album--as opposed to, say, 1974's eponymous record--but I do remember its ubiquity. It was always there, and I always almost bought it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:23pm Funky16Corners:

It's a great record. I was led to it by the appearance of two of its songs on the live Traffic LP 'Welcome To the Canteen'. 'Alone Together' was recorded with a bunch of Leon Russell's crew.
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:25pm still b/p:

Wanted to sit on steps of cabin a while longer with crickets and warm night, but also wanted some Testimony before sleep. Glad you're here/there.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:26pm Erica:

My favorite album by Dave Mason is Let It Flow, mainly for the title track "Let It Go Let It Flow" and the hit song "We Just Disagree". I've listened to some of his earlier stuff too but it's a bit too blusey for me. Reminds me of the Allman Brothers Band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

Hey SBP! I also enjoy the (natural) sounds of the summer night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:27pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - I think Dave is underrated, from Traffic, on.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:28pm Erica:

I've also been listening to Jim Capaldi's stuff too. He was also a member of Traffic and his stuff is more folky than Dave's.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:29pm Erica:

Funky and jazzy too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:29pm Funky16Corners:

Capaldi did some nice singing with Traffic. It gets lost in all the Winwood.
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:31pm Dean:

Not to discount Winwood. I'm not a fan of his late '70s and '80s pop, but I do enjoy the stuff he did with Stomu Yamashta.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:31pm northguineahills:

Greetings, Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:31pm Funky16Corners:

Hey NGH!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:32pm Funky16Corners:

@DEan - I like Winwood a lot. I just think because his contributions are so prominent that Capaldi kind of gets lost in the shuffle
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:32pm Erica:

His 80's stuff is popular amongst Soft AC fans. What about the Spencer Davis Group Larry?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:33pm Funky16Corners:

Love his stuff with Spencer Davis!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:33pm Funky16Corners:

Aside from the big hits there are some great R&B/soul covers and a couple of very cool organ instrumentals
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:34pm Jeff Ash:

I must take my leave. Thanks, Larry!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:34pm Erica:

Did you know that the UK version of "Gimmie Some Lovin'" does NOT feature the crowd or backup singers? Sounds pretty bland without that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

Nite Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - I don't think I've ever heard that version
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:36pm Erica:

I heard it on British radio before. I will send a link later if you like.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

Yes, please!
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:38pm Doug Schulkind:

So much groovy, Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:39pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Doug!
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:41pm Erica:

According to songfacts.com, producer Jimmy Miller "made the US release more appealing to American taste by adding percussion and a female chorus."
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:46pm still b/p:

Something in the Turnbull track reminded me of Cohen and one of Altman's selections for McCabe and Mrs. Miller. Then while I'm checking on that, something else Leonard this way spins.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

I'm toying with the ether tonight!
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:52pm Dean:

My introduction to Terry Reid was (predictably) via Cheap Trick. "Speak Now..." is epic.
Avatar Wed. 8/8/18 11:52pm Erica:

Here is the link to the UK version of "Gimmie Some Lovin'": www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/8/18 11:52pm Funky16Corners:

Another guy that ought to be much better known
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:52pm Dean:

Come to think of it, it's on the Epic label, too!
  Wed. 8/8/18 11:53pm Dean:

Both CT and TR!
Avatar Thu. 8/9/18 12:00am Erica:

Night Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/9/18 12:00am Funky16Corners:

Yes indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/9/18 12:00am Funky16Corners:

Night Erica!
