The Soundtrack you hear in your head as you hand the toll collector your last dollar and drive tentatively into the lonely tunnel toward the arms of Morpheus. But like, who's playing that crazy organ? (Visit homepage.)

Options October 16, 2003: It Will Only Hurt A Little While (new clickable playlist)

Listen to this show:

Artist Track Album Label Year Format Comments
Beethoven, Ludwig  Sym. #4 Op. 60, Adagio, Allegro Vivace   Options Symphonies Vol. 1  Musical Heritage Society    CD  CIty of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Walter Weller, conductor 
Jefferson Airplane  3/5ths of a Mile in 10 Seconds (Listen: )   Options Bless Its Pointed Little Head
RCA    Vinyl  The Airplane were not a "good vibes" band like the Dead. They were also capable of rocking as hard as any Sixties band from Detroit, as one quickly learns by the completion of "3/5's Of A Mile In 10 Seconds" & "Somebody To Love," but can still make the hookah bubble on Donovan's "Fat Angel." 
Moog Machine  Yummy Yummy Yummy (Listen: )   Options Switched-On Rock  Columbia    Vinyl  Filling in for Fabio today, the only WFMU DJ with five wives & a fortified compound near Lubbock, Bob Rixon 
  (Listen to your DJ: )
Dewey Redman  Somnifacient (Listen: )   Options Coincide  ABC  1974  Vinyl  Dewey, clarinet; Ted Daniel, trumpet; Leroy Jenkins, violin; Sirone, bass; Eddie Moore, percussion. 
Jazz Hammer  B side (Listen: )   Options Knitter      7"   
Mirage  Time Less Words (Listen: )   Options now you see it...  Compendium Records  1977  Vinyl  British fusion quartet 
  (Listen to your DJ: )
Schulhoff, Erwin  Jazz Etudes (1926)Charleston, Blues, Chanson, Tango, Toccata sur le Shimmy "Kitten on the Keys." (Listen: )   Options Gideon Kremer Edition Lockenhaus Vo. 4/5  ECM  1986  CD  James Tocco, Piano.

Schulhoff, a Czech-German, Communist with Soviet citizenship died in a Nazi camp. Generally, hip European composers between the World Wars had a much better inside understanding of jazz than American composers of that era. Zev Confrey, the American composer of "Kitten on the Keys," dug it deeper than Gershwin.
  (Listen to your DJ: )
Pointer, Bonnie  Come See About Me (Listen: )   Options Bonnie Pointer  Motown  1979  Vinyl  Slightly funked-up remakes of Motown classics. 
Sneaker Pimps  Six Underground Brazillia Mix (Listen: )   Options Abstract Vibes Vol. 2  Quango  1997  Vinyl  Compilation 
Colleen  (Listen: )   Everyone Alive Wants Answers  Leaf  2003  CD  Charming, hit or miss Lo-Fi loops. 
Contrastate  1000 Badgers in Labour Part 1 (Listen: )   Options 1000 Badgers in Labor  Black Rose    CD  Nice, drony effort undermined by some stupid poetry e.g. "The End" 
Scenic  Ionia (Listen: )   Options Acquatica      CD  Sloppy engineering on my part miscued into a another Scenic cut, wrecking the set's groove. Oh well. 
Umeki, Miyoshi  Teach Me Tonight (Listen: )   Options Miyoshi Sings for Arthur Godfrey, American songs in Japanese 
  Vinyl  1950's nipponotica, the porcelain doll courtesan, the repackaging of Japan as a quaint, harmless culture only a decade after they were kamikazing our carriers. Still, this is one one of my most treasured Lps. For a Japanese collector's take, Click Here 
Joe Simon  In My Baby's Arms (Listen: )   Options Get Down  Spring  1975  Vinyl  A coupla years ago a young DJ at the station said my taste in funk & soul was "stuck in the Seventies." I think it was supposed to be a put-down. On the other hand, DJs Monica & $mall Change dig the stuff I select. So who should I believe?
  (Listen to your DJ: )
Ibert, Jacques (1890-1962)  Suite Symphonique - Le Metro, Faubourgs, La Mosquee, Restaurant au Bois de Boulogne, Le Paquebot, Parade Forain (Listen: )   Options Estancia: Orchestral Showpieces from Around the World  Mastersound  1991  CD  Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Paul Freeman conductor 
  Bob theorizes on why Californians elected Arnold. (Listen: )

Robin Lane & the Chartbusters  It Will Only Hurt a Little While (Listen: )   Options Robin Lane and the Chartbusters  Warner    Vinyl

Eddie Floyd  People Get Ready (Listen: )   Options Down to Earth  Stax    Vinyl  Produced by Steve Cropper 
Neil Young  Walk On (live) (Listen: )   Options Road Rock    2002  CD  One of the few songs Neil actually needed to remake live. Added two minutes & some punch to the original. Love the "girl" backup singers, Neil's wife & daughter, repeating, "Sooner or later, walk, walk on.'

Death Wish
columbia    Vinyl  soundtrack. R.I.P. Charles Bronson, whose classic closing line in "Dirty Dozen" is: "Killing generals could get to be a habit with me."
