Hi Irene!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:09pm
Bronwyn Bishop:

One of my favorite albums. She is so wonderful
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:11pm
Irene Trudel:

Hi Bronwyn and Jake! Agreed BB, this album by Linda is one of my top 5 all-time favorite albums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:14pm
Bronwyn Bishop:

And this is one of my favorite Pink Floyd albums! (Number one is always The Piper at the Gates of Dawn)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:18pm
Irene Trudel:

Mine too! It'll hopefully be a night of favorites, old and new.

came in after a dog walk to the bird-tweet; didn't remember leaving the stereo on. Tried to figure out what device was alarming until the guitar came in. Then recognized the tweeting and a hard day of anxiety slipped away.

The horrible live half of Ummabumma was recorded just up the road from me. I can see the church opposite the (former) nitespot from my bedroom window right now.

Hello everybody.

Irene , have you ever played careful with that axe ? Eugene?

Bite your tongue, foofs, Astronomy Domine is divine on that record.

I'll admit it only got half a listen. One of those groups I have to re-examine every 10 years to find out if I like 'em yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm
Irene Trudel:

fofs, I do happen to love that whole live Pink Floyd disc. flashback, I have played "Eugene" on air but not recently. Agreed, axlotl, I think that version surpasses the original.

Irene: the two versions can live together happily in this same world :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:35pm

Dust on the Nettles, what a great name for a British folk compilation.

when i was a child, ummagumma made me feel less alone, made me feel like someone else understood the world as i did. are you heading toward playing some art of flying???

OK, I'm sorry I had a swipe at a much-loved record. I wasn't being deadly serious.
Avatar 9:49pm

Irene: Just paused the show to listen to them both. You are correct. Did I miss anything?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm
Irene Trudel:

I might be persuaded to play AOF, spanikopity. foofs, no offense taken. Everyone's entitled to their opinion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm
Bronwyn Bishop:

YAY Robbie Basho! My favorite guitar player ever :) You're killing it tonight Irene!

thank you I.T. i was just eating nachos and there they were. AOF. why are they not more famous than U2? aren't they more genius?

i mean art of flying, not the nachos.

Um. Hi Irene. I'm late. Here for a bit. Hope your week was a wonderful one!

I think your nachos are probably more genius than U2 spanikopity

Oh man. I missed the Dental assistant, Linda Perhacs. Dang it. And the irony of that is that I had a dental appointment today. But nobody sang to me there
Avatar 10:16pm
Van in DC:

I love Linda's "Intensity" song though.

I'm directing a production of Jacques Brel Is Alive and Well and Living in Paris which goes up in December, if it wasn't in Ithaca I would invite you all!

Bronwyn Bishop:

Always good to hear Brel and Scott in the same set, they are such a perfect pair!

Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...you ever get that feeling - uh-oh - here's another Artist that's going to be important to me & I'm gonna need to know all their stuff & everything? Like falling in love & committing? ....Scott Walker...

the sound of the city sifting through trees sez paul simon. always good listening to your show irene
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:40pm
Bronwyn Bishop:

Scott is a funny one to commit to because his early and late work are so vastly different. But it's a very rewarding catalog all the same!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm
Bronwyn Bishop:

Oh and one of my favorite S&G songs!
Avatar 10:43pm

yes -- "Old Friends" & "Bookends" STILL get to me after all these years

Thanks Irene, will catch up soon. Have a wonderful week.

Free Design, yes!

Good late evening, Irene.

I saw Spanky in the revamped Mamas

Ahhh! 1960s fake olde timey songs! I love them!
Avatar 10:58pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- so weird - the 20s & 30s were only 40 or 30 years from them...

Also the gang's drummer John Seiter lived in my town out on LI. I spoke to him quite a bit. Spanky would come out there but I never saw her.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm
Irene Trudel:

Wow, KP! that's a cool story. I've always liked Spanky's voice and thought she was a good fit the The Mamas & the Papas. And, yeah, Rev. Rabbit. These was this whole nostalgia movement in the 60's. Remember Winchester Cathedral or Bonnie & Clyde? I kinda liked it.

Dave Van Ronk

Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Granny Takes a Trip & Village Green & all this. They considered themselves so far passed it, but it still resonated. Roaring 20s & Swinging 60s...only 30 years between Robert Johnson & Hendrix. Scary. Used to see Little Rascals & Laurel & Hardy on TV...another Century altogether...

A friend opened for the mamas

Ack! I forgot about ampersands and the comments in the app: Dave Van Ronk and The Hudson Dusters: 1960s nostalgia for a West Village gang that hung out around Hudson Street in the 1890s.

@KP: - makes me think of reading Michelle Phillips autobio...; if you wanna be glad to be born to the completely unfamous...
Avatar 11:12pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...**Mackenzie** Phillips...

Good ole Cash!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:22pm

I was recently watching this same clip on youtube! Love the song and their performance of it.

It's amazing how my comments get cut off but in way that still makes sense

RRN, what I was trying to say in cut off comment was my friend introduced me to Mackenzie. She was the other Mama. And she was the nicest kid you'd ever want to meet.
Avatar 11:33pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@KP: I'm sure.

I did read the Papa John book. Oh boy

Nice relaxing show, Irene, after a not so relaxing day. I expect I'll listen again before next week.
Avatar 11:59pm

This was a singular show, Irene, one of your best ever. Y'know what? I think I'll favorite-episode star it. Thanks for the lovely evening.

Ooh look! Two other people agree with me. There you have it.

I agree with Parq, that was a show of awesome quality, the fourth set, wow! Thanks Irene. The next time I tune in I will be Stateside and will be listening live, who-hoo!
