9:13am Nanker de Tucson:Interesting choice . . . Kitty, Daisy & Lewis 9:26am William:Nice to hear from Colours. Some gems on that LP. ♥ 9:28am Melissa Jean:up early, first time listener just tuned in - from the playlist I see I should be listenin ALLA TIME! ♥ 9:29am melinda:Nice to hear Jo Stafford again. ♥ 9:47am Stevel:Alan Price is incredible. Never heard of him. What a feeling! 9:51am Bob Brainen:Thanks all, glad you're on board! 9:52am Jack:@ Stevel - "Oh Lucky Man!" is a great Alan Price album, and he's in the movie of the same name. ♥ 10:06am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:Alan Price took a writing credit on 'House of the Rising Sun' & so got major royalties & this came between him & the others Animals I have read. You can see him drinking & hanging affably w/ Dylan in 'Don't Look Back'... ♥ 10:11am Mike East:@Rev Rabbit - isn't it Alan Price who opens the beer on the piano and chips some of wood off it? 10:11am William:I believe Jerry Corbitt passed on in the last year or so. His solo albums are solid. ♥ 10:13am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- sounds exactly right MikeE - been a while I've seen it! ♥ 10:14am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:...he tells Dylan about Donovan: 'He's a good guitar player - better than you!'... ♥ 10:14am Mike East:yeah, me too. Love that flick...young people being young people. ♥ 10:15am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:- perfect flip to 'Hard Day's Night'... ♥ 10:20am Mike East:absolutely! 10:22am mrmucho:Oh this is a real treat, Bob 10:25am Stuart rose:Was that Jm Lowe the former WNEW-AM jock?
Jack, you're right about Lucky Man being an exceptional album. Price did a couple of other albums worth checking out. The names escape me. He always choose/wrote good songs and arranged them elegantly(but not bloodlessly),
Bob, the accent in Naftuli is in the secnd syllable. I love your applying Apollonian/ Dionysian classification to those old Klezmer players.
♥ 10:27am Stevel:"...haddya like that? a flat tyah." ♥ 10:28am Stevel:Thanks all, for the Alan Price info.
So good to be listening live this morning.
♥ 10:30am Ken From Hyde Park:Morning, folks. ♥ 10:34am j sakaarson:It's pretty common with metal bands. Black Sabbath (technically named themselves after the song), Angel Witch, Iron Maiden, Manowar, to name a few 10:35am MONEYBAG$:yesterday a local show did 2 hours of songs where the artist's name is mentioned in the song but is NOT the title 10:35am JoshWPRB:There is no better bed music. Always start my Saturdays with Bob. Unstoppable. 10:35am MONEYBAG$:Bo was also in that 10:36am P-90:Bad Company by Bad Company from their album, Bad Company 10:36am William:Sea Train by Sea Train from the album Sea Train 10:38am Stuart Rose:What a shame Michael Brown and Steve Martin didn't collaborate regularly over the years. 10:41am P-90:btw, there are also clips of Alan Price, performing the songs, worked into the movie "O Lucky Man", unusual for a dramatic film. 10:43am William:Jerry Corbitt died March 2014. Lung cancer. Found it on J.C. Young's Facebook page.
