"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

There was a 45 of this Idris Muhammad? I have the LP somewhere, and I think it was put out on 12 inch for those disco spins.

@JA - gotcha. Just checked Discogs, there's a 45 of this, in part 1/part 2 format.

I've been watching the series. The Astros are just really good. Verlander's pitching is a work of art. The Yankees can't hit. Boone again makes questionable calls. Hopefully the Bronx will be rowdy tomorrow

The new stadium is not nearly rowdy enough, esp. in the playoffs. Bunch of rich people from CT and LI in brand-new gear. I got yelled at during the national anthem last time. Like I was the only one there wearing Ken's "Trust Us. It's Music." shirt!


I mean, there's been a three-run differential in three games. Playoffs. All of the chaos, but now with extra agita.

Moth Cock rises!

A friend and I were getting rowdy at an otherwise sleepy Camden Yards years ago. An older couple in front of us kept giving us the stink eye but we weren't being vulgar or anything. Just calling out players because we knew they could hear us. The couple complained to the usher. When the usher asked us to quiet down I told him he had to be kidding and more people should join us. So the usher moved us closer to the field, a dozen or so rows in front of the old folks.

Ha, nice, captain. I have in my office a score sheet from the one game I went to at Camden when I was in Ballimur for a work thing in 2012. Sheesh, ten years?

I about wore out this Brecker Brothers album.
Avatar 11:35am

Heya JA and AMers. Not knowing much about jazz, I learned about the Brecker brothers through Todd Rundgren. A thorough investigation ensued ...

Cleveland winning would have been crazy. Lowest payroll in mlb, 29.1M. 10 players make more than that.
Avatar 11:42am

@tonyb - Agreed. I'm a lifelong Yankees fan and was half way rooting for Cleveland to win that series

Handy Haversack:

abbazabba, I was ready to trade Aarons Hicks and Boone, my friend Scott, and Kiner-Falefa to Cleveland for Kwan right there in the middle of a game.

But that said, it's good they lost. Cheap owners who refuse to reinvest in the team should not be rewarded. And the expanded playoffs reward exactly that. It's all an antilabor initiative, top to bottom. And now even the Yankees are going down that cheap, sad route.

Love the sport. Hate the game.

I got deja vu listening to Bob James's "Westchester Lady parts 1 and 2" because it's prominently sampled in "Circles" by Adam F on Artcore 2.
