I bought this album in the 80s when I came across it in the bin, thinking it had the Plimsouls song on it (I had heard it on the radio, had no idea who performed it). Stiv's song is good, but obv not the same thing.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm JG:

In my opinion this version of who knows where the time goes ( the one Todd's playing now) is the the best version. Such an incredible voice. May be the greatest singer of all time. At least on this track she is. And of course the guitar part is part of the mystique. Incredible
  3:51pm Dungaroos Kipawah:

@TOPT: Him too. Dylan famous for doling out lotsa fulsome praise . . .

This is a great interview, and I knew the Vincent Black Lightning had to be in it!
Avatar 4:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

He's something very special - priceless actually - in being among the most exalted ranks of Rawk Gittarists - but not in a style representing exclusively Blues influence - nor the Classical thing that the Shredders would embrace - but in UK Folk. By itself. Aside from him as Songwriter, Performing Bard &tc. He has value & cred as Folk preservationist - Alt Music idol - all the pistons.
Vincent more often sped up to more MPH than this version !...

I may have mentioned this last week, but if you have seven minutes to spare check out Drowned Dog, Black Night from the first French Frith Kaiser Thompson album. Maybe he'll mention it if he writes a follow up to Beeswing, which is a great read. I just started the new John Cooper Clarke memoir-I Wanna Be You. Excellent, so far. He would probably make a good guest.

Todd, I’ve learned more during this set than I did in four (ok 5) years of college.
Avatar 5:15pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

@MonicaC: Ha! Well I always loved the Springsteen line in "No Surrender": "We learned more from a three minute record than we ever did in school".

Todd do you know if Richard listens to WFMU ? And if so what does he tune in to ?
Avatar 5:16pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Always think of one of the Everlys saying first hearing BoDiddley on somebody's headphones in the 1950s was world-changing.

alot of influences hear and there in this set
Avatar 5:23pm John L:

Todd, I don't know how much you read about what to drink and eat after a second shot, but drinking something with electrolytes, as well as a lot of water, works. Suggested foods include brown rice, potatoes, salmon, various fresh whole foods. No spicy foods for a few days. I had my second shot on Weds and followed this. And some some exercise of the arm, too. Everyone reacts differently, I know, but the only after effects I had were a sore arm and minor fatigue.
Avatar 5:23pm Todd-o-phonic Todd:

That is good advice John!

Felt well enough today to get up at 6 am for my first visit to a record yard sale in a long time!!! Everyone was masked and I bought a bunch of great lps, not paying more than 3 bucks for any one:Hoodoo Gurus, The Move, Wizzard, Ben Vaughn, Bebop Deluxe, Willie Nile, Squeeze and more. There were pricier records that I had my eye on, but most of these titles hit that nostalgic sweet spot that has been growing since the pandemic hit.

Hey Joe! I seldom buy massive box sets, like the new Who box, but I may go for this one. And, maybe, the Plastic Ono band box. But The Who Sell Out is one of my favorite albums of all time, so I may have to give in.

I've resisted buying this Wedding Present re-do just because I love those originals so much but... as Stuntz says, awesome!
