Evening David. Oh yes pigeons.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 4:05pm David D:

Evening, Brian! More pigeons on their way...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 4:12pm Parq:

How do, Brian and David. Still daytime hereabouts. 80 some-odd degrees today (or if you like, 27). We went from winter last week to summer this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 4:14pm David D:

Good day, Parq! We went the other way over here - but spring is bound to warm up again soon...
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 4:17pm Brian in UK:

Parq if you were to describe Spring over here it would need language from a while back. A gay springtime, bluebells are out. Magnolias and daffodils are nearly gone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 4:20pm Parq:

Brian, interesting. In the US, magnolias are strongly associated with the south, and a woman from that region will often be called a magnolia. By the way, what the heck are "skittles"? Besides the candy, I mean.
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 4:24pm Brian in UK:

Skittles over here is a bit like ten pin but much smaller. You could get table skittles if memory serves.

Sugar Magnolia by the Grateful Dead is delicious.
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 4:26pm Brian in UK:

I think there are some pubs in Somerset that still have skittles alleys at the back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 4:26pm Parq:

Ah! All these years, I just assumed it was something to eat.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 4:27pm David D:

Skittles with a side of skiffle, please!
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 4:29pm Brian in UK:

Now where is my washboard?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 4:33pm David D:

Could be Romania, going by the last track.

Miss Molly! She still has a star in front of where the Second Avenue Deli used to be. The Deli space itself has been a bank branch for years and years, unfortunately.
  Tue. 4/11/17 5:07pm Doctorjazz:

2nd Avenue Deli did reopen, not on 2nd Avenue, but not too far from the old site. Been to the new site one, Great food, pretty expensive...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:12pm David D:

Do they deliver to Leipzig by any chance?
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 5:15pm Brian in UK:

Imagine there is no likelihood of Springtime for Hitler. So adios amigos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:17pm David D:

Good night, Brian - now that's an interesting idea, actually...
  Tue. 4/11/17 5:28pm Doctorjazz:

Has anyone covered Springtime...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:30pm David D:

Good question - I think there may be a German version somewhere, believe it or not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:35pm kuba:

good evening all & dave! for once, insomnia pays off
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:37pm David D:

Hey Kuba!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 5:38pm Parq:

Doc, not sure (guessing the version in the Broadway show or the one in the ensuing musical movie wouldn't count), but I know someone's covered "Love Power".
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 5:40pm Listening Out There:

Listening for first time + Enjoying CS...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:49pm David D:

Thanks (for) Listening Out There!
  Tue. 4/11/17 5:49pm Doctorjazz:

did a quick Google Search, didn't turn up any covers. It mixes such delicious horribleness and irony, think it would be hard to cover.
anyway, 15 hungry family members about to arrive for Seder (how's that for a segue), thanks for the great music, Happy holidays to those who celebrate any of the current ones (and at least some nice time off to those who don't).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:53pm David D:

Thanks for looking and listening, Doctorjazz - have a great Seder evening and a happy holiday!
  Tue. 4/11/17 5:56pm pedrito:

How about a bit of classic Dave? Spring song from Mendelssohn?Maybe not your vice...but great show anyway dude!
  Tue. 4/11/17 5:57pm pedrito:

hey this is nice and jazzy :)))
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:58pm David D:

Hola Pedrito! Maybe something along those lines later on...
  Tue. 4/11/17 5:58pm pedrito:

Charlie Haden...very cool...oh no you don't say cool these days...or do you?
  Tue. 4/11/17 5:59pm pedrito:

This is my fave track so far
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 5:59pm David D:

Cool works for me!

"Springtime for Hitler" covered by Legs Larry Smith (of Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band) and Sickidz, respectively:

Well this is lovely!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 6:02pm doctorjazz:

This Haden/Barron is just beautiful, keep it on until folks arrive.
@Dean, thanks, good searching, knew I could count on you! I'll check the videos out later.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 6:03pm David D:

Thanks, Dean!

Welcome, geezerette!
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 6:04pm geezerette:

Love this song anyway!
Hi David! Doc! Dean! Springtime!
  Tue. 4/11/17 6:04pm Dean:

My pleasure, @doctorjazz. The Smith is more closely aligned with the original. It's BDDDB, after all. The Sickidz is rustier, but its heart is in the right place.
Avatar 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 6:08pm Listening Out There:

A year or so back, Ahmad Jamal got caught up in airport security. Occurred due to his name. Can't remember where. Talk about a shame...
  Tue. 4/11/17 6:08pm pedrito:

looks like your listeners like a bit of jazz ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 6:08pm kuba:

David, this hits me where I live. :D
Everything in SoCal is blooming like mad, as bouyant as this music

Glad to hear it, geezerette, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 6:11pm David D:

Kuba, glad your insomnia is worth it tonight...

Dave, Dave, Dave: "Spring is here" from Ella Fitzgerald...???
Avatar Tue. 4/11/17 6:12pm northguineahills:

Hmmm, unfamilar w/ Farid Al Atrash. Nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 6:13pm Parq:

NGH, clearly the audience in this recording is familiar with him
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 6:14pm kuba:

allergy-infused insomnia + cool tunes = me looking at a date, and going "2017? that must be a typo, way too futuristic"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 6:16pm David D:

Good evening, northguineahills! Yes, he does have a way with that oud...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/11/17 6:16pm David D:

Kuba, plot twist: it is a typo!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Tue. 4/11/17 6:16pm doctorjazz:

OK, 100 year old mother in law and her baby sister (98) just arrived, and some of the little 'uns arriving here as well, Gotta Go, Next time!

Doctorjazz, wow, that's great - enjoy the meal!

i like this kind of live recording, it's a bit like a laugh track - i just cheer along :)
