the only Saturday I get up early & the whole peanut gallery is still asleep. Morning Bob.
  9:09am David in ATL from NJ:

Listening from a rainy Atlanta this Saturday, Bob. Nice start!
Avatar 9:13am glenn:

i believe that at the very least we're a macadamia nut gallery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am G:

I knew this wasn't Laura. Vertigo, got it.

Busy grading.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18am Mike East:

I'd prefer the cashew gallery. Good morning, gents.
Avatar 9:18am tomB:

Thought I recognized that theme. Vertigo is one of my two fave films
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19am Mike East:

what's the other, tomB?
Avatar 9:20am tomB:

Avatar 9:23am Bob Brainen:

Morning all!
Who did the music for Badlands, TomB?
Avatar 9:23am glenn:

i prefer cashews as well, but macadamias are the most expensive nut. i will leave silly remarks to everyone else. i'm silly remark - ed out this a.m.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:28am G:

wiki on Badlands score: "The film's score makes repeated use of the short composition Gassenhauer from Carl Orff's Schulwerk, and also uses other pieces from the Schulwerk. The same piece was used for a scene in the film Ratcatcher and used as an influence in the film Monster and Finding Forrester. A cover of by Hans Zimmer entitled "You're So Cool" is used throughout the film True Romance."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40am Mike East:

I watched Badlands with my (at the time) 6 year old daughter. We both liked it. Incidentally, "True Romance" is one of my all time favorite movies. (I'll say in the top 5)
Avatar 9:41am tomB:

Oddly, the screen credits for Badlands note an instrumental "Migration" by a James Taylor. Also, I think Nat Cole singing "A Blossom Fell." I don't watch DVDs, but noted in my 2nd viewing the name Carl Orff but blanked on the German title. So I mistakenly began specializing in Carmina Burana.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am G:

Wow, I haven't thought of this "out west, out to the burlesque" tune since it was on the charts in the UK forty years ago (I lived there at the time)

- Tadd Dameron - thot it sounded beaucoup Birth of Kewl...'Where Love Is'' just the sort of 60'PunkPop I like...do *not* hate your Program, Sir...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:09am G:

About hearing Family live (Tull and Gabriel were influenced by their stage presentation), they actually did a one-off reunion show in London last month. (I looked them up after you played "Burlesque")
  10:13am David in ATL from NJ:

NOW we're talking!
Avatar 10:17am Dave B:

Wow... the Travis Shook track is really nice. Thanks Bob!
Avatar 10:18am Dr. Goot:

I concur.
Avatar 10:30am tomB:

Mary Wells rules Motown.
  10:30am Mark R from NP:

Why is Chandler Travis better known? Why?
  10:32am Mark R from NP:

That should read "Why ISN'T Chandler Travis better known?"
  10:37am Richard:

Hey there, we say Quixotic as 'Kwiksotik' rather that 'Keejotik' or whatever as it's a word that became popular in the 18th-c. in England, where folks still said Don 'Kwiksot', not having yet corrected their pronunciation to the Spanish manner which we now favour. When we say Quixotic we're referring to the complex of ideas that originated at that moment in England in response to Cervantes, not directly to the original Spanish text, so it makes sense to use the English pronunciation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41am Mike East:

That's very interesting, Richard. thanks for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:43am Mike East:

time to brew another pot o' joe.
  10:44am Keith Spring:

The Travis Shook album was recorded in both 1973 and 1974. It's Not Too Late is from the 1974 sessions.
Great to hear a Steve Shook mini-set on WFMU.
Avatar 10:47am Bob Brainen:

So the album came out in 74, Keith?
  10:53am Keith Spring:

I think so, but I seem to remember the sessions at Great Northern Studio being in the fall, so the album might not have come out until '75.
Avatar 10:56am Bob Brainen:

OK another brain-tester: was this Ardolino's recording debut, or did it follow the NRBQ recordings?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59am Mike East:

man, BB active on the comments this AM. Way to go, Bob!
  11:00am Keith Spring:

Tom's recording debut was the Froggy Went A Courtin' session, which I think preceded the Travis Shook album.
