Good morning, Nate. Ornette makes the Sunday morning world go 'round, for certain.

I think my better half Katie would choose pets but I would choose food - sorry about that kitties...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 6:27am Rob W:

Oh - I see, Pets or Food is about Pets AS Food! Well again, I'm afraid I'm on the wrong side of the discussion...

Though I promise not to eat our cats Febo and Dumpling. I promise. I'm not crossing my fingers No, I'm not.

Salut, fred.
Mr. Rob W., hello. Loved that Golem set & interview from last week, btw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 6:30am Rob W:

Oh thanks Sem Chumbo, they will be happy to hear that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 6:32am fred:

@Sem: what's that big "wheel" in the film I told you about yesterday?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 6:39am Sem Chumbo:

@fred: Cape Breton was old school coal mining country. That wheel carried the cable which would raise and lower the cage from the workings. All my family, for generations, were coal miners in Cape Breton, I know most of those pictures from yesterday well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 6:46am fred:

@Sem: Thanks. If I go to that screening, maybe I'll read "No great mischief" later. This way I'll have a sense of the landscape
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 6:46am Nate K:

Hi Rob, yes, they give you the option. You don't have to eat your pets. But you do have to choose, apparently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 6:51am Rob W:

Thanks Nate. Oh - great show by the way!

Hi, Cory.
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:26am LizB:

My fave Rolling Stones album is Goat's Head Soup-- and yes I have every single one on vinyl :)
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:28am clarke:

the best Stones album is the one that the Stones hate the most: Between The Buttons
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:28am wfmu wtf:

shes a rainbow.....incredible song
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:32am clarke:

also dude: wouldn't that be Sir Lord VON Raven??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 7:36am Nate K:

Clark, yes. You are right re: Mr. Raven. I didn't know that Stones hated BTB.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 7:36am Nate K:

@WFMUwtf, yes, that's the other good song on TSMR.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 7:38am Sem Chumbo:

Pogoing with hockey helmet fiirmly stapped on amidst the flames whilst bar-b-q-ing weinies. Nedless to say, the insurance company has cancelled my policy. Good work, Nate.
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:39am clarke:

oh yes - if you read Keith's book "Life" - he shrugs off both BtB and Majesty's with a short paragraph stating: "i don't know what we were on about, there" = and i have heard jagger slag BtB - but it is undoubtedly my favorite stones record - then Exile.
also = since i am hardly ever conscious enough to write at this hour - i should say that i am a faithful listener - wish you were on friday nite!! great great show!!
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:42am clarke:

and i am getting awful chatty for a sunday morn - but i adore Beggar's Banquet as well. those 3 are a tough call - but my reasons for BtB are: brian is all over it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 7:44am JohnEBGood:

Sticky Fingers!

Thanks, Clarke for the info Clarke... and the compliment!
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:47am chaddyJ:

glad I tuned in this morning. totally hitting the spot!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 7:50am Sem Chumbo:

I'm think, because of the longevity of the band, it comes down to periods with the Stones. It is not a new idea to consider the years in which these albums were created---Beggar's Banquet.Their Satanic Majesties Request,Let it Bleed,Sticky Fingers and Exiles on Main Street--as the years when the Stones did whatever they wanted, and were not slaves to *re-inventing* themselves.
R&R is creative, heart-felt, unencumbered free expression, I think. When the Stones transmogrified into a branded product, the vital hormonal secretions were gone, so to say, and the music became lifeless.
Though I can still play ALL of *Some Girls* with pleasure, but perhaps only because it is linked to a personally tumultuous time.
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:52am clarke:

well - let's face it - every Stones record COULD be a contender. i don't dislike ANY stones record - i used ot hate Steel Wheels - but it has I Can Almost Hear You Sigh on it. some of their records have NO flaws!! and yes = it depends on the mood at the time.
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:54am clarke:

also - we see what you have done here, Nate. this is the sportstalk radio equivalent of saying: i hate the yankees in your market. makes folks like me wipe th sleep out of my eyes and actually TYPE.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 7:56am fred:

Clicky-star for Eastlink. New to me, so extra thanks Nate
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:58am AZ Dave:

I'm partial to Let It Bleed. Aftermath ain"t too shabby either.
  Sun. 2/1/15 7:59am clarke:

exactly AZ Dave!!
  Sun. 2/1/15 8:15am clarke:

Equals cover??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 8:22am Sem Chumbo:

Thanks so much for this morning, Nate, great cuts and so many new to me. Gotta get out shovelling before that next snow dump arrives here tomorrow. No jive, no jive NO JIVE!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 8:28am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...was handed down a copy of 'Rolling Stones - Now!' w/out a cover/sleeve when I was young ; the early Stones didn't even think in terms of 'albums' yet - dif in the UK & U.S. - but how about that for an underrated one? i.e. - yeah - Periods for the Stones - & the whole bunch of the first - five say?
...'Exiles' is the critics darling - & then the backlash from that - but yeah, you can lean back in to that one & let it envelop you...also, it's longer idn't it? In the CD era you forget that maybe, & just go 'this has got a lot! - ergo it's better'...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 8:30am Guido from Cologne:


If you're really into psych this is a MUST!
  Sun. 2/1/15 8:37am clarke:

my one 'gripe' with Now is: Little Red Rooster - i like it but it wreaks of 'filler'. i love the early stones records - but BtB seems to be where they actually put the songs together in a certain order.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 8:45am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- know what you mean - but for '64-5, 'Rooster' is pretty 'deep Blues' - & got Brian's slide...can't honestly call it weak...Maybe '66 is when *everybody* began to think of songs in a particular order on albums; I theorize that the *real* 'Concept' of 'Concept Albums' is the Medium itself: putting together an album *as* an album everyone will sit w/ & programming it thusly...
- Loved last set, btw, Mr. Nate sir...
  Sun. 2/1/15 8:48am clarke:

i recently saw the contemporary Stones do a pretty valid version of Red Rooster - so, yes - i love it. for me, it slightly detracts from what is otherwise a killer set of songs.
  Sun. 2/1/15 8:51am clarke:

but also Now has a LOT of covers on it, now that i think about it...right?
  Sun. 2/1/15 8:52am clarke:

dude Kinks brilliance!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 8:55am Nate K:

Thanks for all the kind words folks! And for telling me your thoughts on the Stones. I know it's not the most original question, but it certainly leads to good conversation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 8:55am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- yeah - but @ that point, & in my very young years, their choice of covers was educational. Still is, actually! Learned very important basics from the Stones about R&B - & they taught us to play guitar like the yARdbiRds did, too. & the sound on those early Stones! - must remark on that...

- Ray Davies makes it sound merely observational - but who else writes like this - ?! Just - wow.
  Sun. 2/1/15 8:57am clarke:

RR - i LOVE the early stones work - just thought we were talking 'albums' here - and BtB seems to be where the Mach One version was at their creative peak - and upon examination: there are no 'hits' on that record.
  Sun. 2/1/15 8:58am clarke:

loved this show!!! and the chat!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 2/1/15 8:59am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- a special fondness for lesser-known stuff by well-known artists...
- Thx NateK !!
