Excitable Boy Warren Zevon?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

It really is - that Turtles! Yeah Zevon's on 'Nuggets' too - as 'Lyme & Cybele...Love this Mingus-y style here too - too much coffee Bop - I always related...
Avatar 9:24am Tidepoolbay:

Eric Dolphy was so cool!! Beard & Hat is a great song!
  9:27am Stuart Rose:

Woke up a bit late and missed that fine pop of Gary Lewis and the Turtles,
In time,though,for that smoky bass clarinet of Dolphy's getting all angular.
  9:28am Mike tp:

Tune sounds like welfare Cadillac. So so funny. Forgot the artist for now.

Thanks 63, He played at Stockton State College in New Jersey in 1983 and was outstanding. Oh yeah Stockton is now Richard Stockton University
Avatar 9:31am Bob G:

Holy shit, I played the hell out of Ol Rivers (and his Christmas record) when I was a kid. This is really flooding the memory banks. Morning Bob!!
  9:32am Jeff:

Walter Brennan was an extreme right wing douchebag! (but, I loved him on the Real McCoys
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Sad anniversary today: 31 years since Richard Manuel's apparent but inexplicable (say associates) suicide.
Avatar 9:43am JohnEBGood:

Hey Bob, Richard Manuel or Rick Danko?
  9:44am Stuart Rose:

What does Robbie Robertson say in his book about Richard Manuel's suicide?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47am melinda:

I like Jon Brion.
  9:49am ?:

I <3 Jon Brion

Dot was lovely.
Avatar 9:55am mlsgrrl:

That whole Gonzales album is beautiful. He has a more recent, Solo Piano II, I think.
Avatar 10:09am Snortley:

According to the internet, "louve" is French for "she wolf."
  10:16am WilliamfromDumont:

The singer on "Roof" sounds familiar.
  10:17am Stuart Rose:

Isn't Funny how love can Be an Ivy League song?
  10:19am Kevin:

Sounds like Ben E. King on "roof", too obvious?
Avatar 10:28am pierre:

@Snortley: the internet is right;

Bonjour Bob an listeners !
Avatar 10:30am fred:

@pierre: are you going to Sonic Protest this year?
Avatar 10:32am Bob G:

Walter Brennan was indeed a right wing douche, but I still loved that Henry had a Merry Christmas!!!
Avatar 10:32am pierre:

@fred : i'm going to try, yes. Some good stuff this year. 22 and 23 of march looks like my kind of thing. Will I see you ?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:32am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

@Stuart: Yes - there's notably YT of them doing it Live @ the NME awards 1964... Reportedly singing background on TheWh♂'s 'I Can't Explain' was their big break.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...NMEs *'65...
Avatar 10:36am fred:

@pierre: probably. As usual, I took the pass and two weeks off from work. I'll miss a couple of shows (I'll miss Anne Gillis for a dance show and next Saturday to fulfill my pledging duties)
