Was Arthur Murry the guy who taught people to dance?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...reminds how when the Label Execs hounded Neil Young to make 'a Rock'n'Roll' album - he did just that - not a Rock album - a 1950s-style Rock'n'Roll album. 'Don't ask me to do something, not know what you're talking about, & get mad when I do it!'

I dunno why this Carol King song isn't better known. By me, nothing else she ever wrote can touch it. Okay, maybe "One Fine Day" comes close.
  10:44am WilliamfromDumont:

The first Paul Williams LP with heavy involvement from Roger Nichols is an underrated gem. Lovin' The City stuff.

Good show Bob
  10:58am AZDave:

I played a round of golf once with Jimmie Rodgers and his agent, I think. A random match-up on a near empty course. It was early '86, and he recently had learned he'd been selected for the inaugural class of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; he was trying to figure out what it was all about. A decent fellow.
