Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:17pm McGroovey:

I have Journey's "Next" album. That might be their second? I kinda like it, when I pull it out every five years. I don't need to hear the Steve Perry stuff again. I heard too much of it in the eighties. Though I do kinda like how Steve Perry walked away. "I'm done now. I like staying home. It was fun while it was fun. I have more than enough money now, anyway." He seems like an OK guy, even if he oversaturated my ears.

Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:22pm McGroovey:

It's funny--there are so many great songs on The Correct Use of Soap that overshadow this song, that it always goes by and my brain takes a break and doesn't hear it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm efd:

I thought I posted this 5 minutes ago and just found the "confirm" window on my screen: @McGroovey Next is their third, the one with "It's All Too Much" was their second. (I just learned this tonight)

Time to get funk'd up!
  9:31pm Rick A:

Leave it to EFD to tap into my adolescence with this Chicago track. This was their comeback album after Terry Cath shot himself. I have typically been ashamed that I like this song. However, hearing it on WFMU gives me some peace of mind.
  9:32pm Brian in Charlottesville:

Same here, @Rick A. What a great track.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:33pm McGroovey:

Yeah, I could have looked up the Journey album chronology, but I was just as happy not bothering.

I used to have the (or a) Neil Schon & Jan Hammer album, but I sold it when I divested myself if all my Jan Hammer records 30 years ago. I kept the Jeff Beck ones. I kinda wish I'd kept the Jan Hammer "there are no guitars on this album" rock albums--especially the one with Manic Depression.
Avatar 9:37pm mb:

I was in the shower. I says to myself: "Chicago?". And sure enough. That was very 80's for a tune from 1978. AM radio Chicago rules too. just sayin'.

Yay, Worriers!

Great to be back in the saddle with y'all on the @efd Show. Loving this Worriers cover.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:41pm Handy Haversack:

efd, are those electronic drums on the Worriers track?
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:41pm McGroovey:

This Worries song sounds familiar. If it a cover? Or did they just steal the chorus from another song that I can't quite retrieve?
  9:42pm Elle Tor's Husband:

Growing up in SF - the thing to do was go to Winterland and see Journey ( before Loud Mouth joined the band) Greg Rollie was basically the lead singer coming from Santana.They were a really good band back then (75'?). We went to a local TV show one afternoon to see them live and Loud Mouth was in the band by then and they lip-synced to "Wheels In The Sky" that was the end. Then I sent years printing their tour shirts. Literally years.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:44pm efd:

Worriers all recorded their parts remotely for that song, but there's a video that shows them all playing/singing in their separate locations.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:45pm Handy Haversack:

Thanks, efd! Sounded absolutely great!
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 9:45pm McGroovey:

@RomanDogBird thanks. I looked at the Bandcamp page, and there were no songwriting credits.

People should really post songwriting credits--especially when they're not your songs.

Evan plays New Porn cover. So I told my friends. And added this- - Aside: some yrs ago, housing works thrift had its annual outdoor sale. I bought lotsa stuff, and saw a crate of porn dvd. I took one. Bring all to cashier. I point out porn, “uh, did you mean to sell?”. Woman looks at it, pause, then sez “my uncle got arrested in a (child?) porn sting”(paraphrase). Then, “it’s a dollar if you want it”. Haha. I bought. Plus about $30 of $1 items.

I got NY Dolls through Columbia House. All the good Aerosmith stuff. Patti Smith later. Lou Reed maybe?
  10:07pm devlawn:

Someone used my mailbox to join columbia record one time. But all the CD's were horrible so I had to send back. If they were any good I would have kept them.

Before CDs were viewed as an abomination, CH was super handy for me to fill in gaps in my collection. Especially in college
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 10:08pm Matt Fiveash:

I wound up with so many bad records by forgetting to check the "do not send me the selection of the month" box and mail it back. What era were you there EFD? Maybe you mailed prepubescent me that shitty Moody Blues record with "The Voice" on it.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 10:09pm McGroovey:

The last time I did the Record Club, I got good stuff: it was that moment in the early nineties when major labels were wishing they'd been the smart ones who signed Nirvana, and they were signing indy bands, or bands that would have been on indies. So I got Dinosaur Jr and Ride and the Pixies and ah jeez I can't remember the 10 either.
  10:09pm devlawn:

CD's are fine, they arn't an abomination. Pretty good format, better than 8-track and cassette.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Were Loss Leaders much associated with the Clubs ??
  10:10pm J*Boogie:

I fully agree. Never said I believed that
  10:10pm J*Boogie:

I never got rid of mine and I’m glad I didn’t
  10:11pm devlawn:

Now I really want to look at an old columbia house record club catalog. See what the real bargains were.
  10:11pm J*Boogie:

Oh yeah I think I got Teenage Fanclub through CH in the early 90s

ill take a well cared after tape over a cd if you are listening to the whole side, or album. cd's are decent after they figured out how to master for them. CDs are definitely easier to cue

Don’t use social media. Mark Hurst told me not to
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Handy Haversack:

We've just gone through a Whole Thing with CDs. We live in a tiny, crowded hallway, and we thought we'd get rid of the jewel cases and so bought a few big wallets, only to find that they are useless for preserving anything besides naked disks, and we freaked out and put them all back (now alphabetized at least). We're totally screwed. At some point a bookshelf will collapse. If you don't see me post for a week, send in dogs that can also carry booze through fallen books.
  10:13pm devlawn:

Which teenage fanclub? thirteen?
  10:14pm J*Boogie:

Remember Ariel Pink kinda made his sound on CD-Ra in the end, not tape. Fidelity wise CDs are totally fine. I think only a real stickler takes issue with them. Same kinda person that owns a Pono

Matt - I still have that Moody Blues LP in the basement and Gemini Dream sounded awesome in 1981, now not so much.

Someone made the point that CDs have a wider dynamic range - but LPs are better within their range : a good observation I miss in my usual analog/digital schpiel ...

Not familiar with that store, since I'm in the PNW, but it brings to mind a local retailer of a similar nature here in WA (maybe elsewhere?) that was/is called Silver Platters

@devlawn I don't know—I'm still playing heavily loved laser-burnt CDs that I made 15 years ago without issue.

Suspect it's not the laser burning? - it's the manufacture of the CD-Rs & them peeling & generally degrading. Some of them.

42 is surprisingly warm once you get a good pace going on a walk.
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 10:51pm prof.fuzz:

Digging the contrast of fuzzed out guitars and the keys at the beginning of this Immortal Wound track!
Avatar The Evan "Funk" Davies Show Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Handy Haversack:

Agreed, Mariano, that's sweatshirt weather. It's surprisingly cold water to fall into, though!
