  3:27pm Rick A.:

I listened to this album the other day. This is a highlight on the track. I initially discovered David Holmes' music through WFMU when "Let's Get Killed" was on regular play around 1996/7. He has been a mainstay of my music listening for more than twenty years, great track, Sheila, thanks for playing it.

And because I always mispronounce all Gillians...It is a hard G or soft g for Gillian Welch?
  3:31pm Rick A.:

Sadly, there are too many Republican politicians named Rick: Perry, and Scott among others. Hopefully, we will not go the way of the Karen reputation which is unfair to women and girls named Karen. How about Amy? It was actually Amy Cooper who racially profiled in Central Park and Amy Coney Barrett is about to make our lives more difficult. Don't forget Amy Elliot Dunne, the antihero of the novel and film Gone Girl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Aaron in Minneapolis:

Hard I think, its llke Gillligan, only not
  3:32pm Rick A.:

It's a hard "G" for Gillian Welch and for Gillian Flynn, I believe.

I think it's hard "G," Sheila. And I LOVE this David Holmes/Sarah Cracknell track. I also love the authentic crackle on this Shangri-Las vinyl. Oh please let's not talk politics--we all know what the deal is, let joyful dancing be our revolutionary acts.

As someone who went to HS in Jacksonville, There was 30th anniversary of the Gator Bowl, and a one sentence mention of said incident in the local paper. And, considering Stetson Kennedy did a lot of his undercover Klan research for his expose (which finally got the FBI to clamp down on them) in Jacksonville, it doesn't surprise me.

I believe "Tell Him" was a track on a film, the title escapes me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm tim from champaign (now washington):

I was wondering if this is where De La Soul sample came from.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 5:25pm cal:

Gaylord, Its hard to imagine the Beatles opening for anyone, but they did before they struck super fame!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:26pm brainiac:

What a great vocal performance on A Little Bit Of Soap!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm Carmichael:

I have the Jarmels 45, but this blows it away!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm tim from champaign (now washington):

@Danny C - Goodfellas?
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 5:27pm cal:

Ummmm...It sends me to heaven to hear this stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm fred:

Is there a band that opened for The Beatles and blew the audience's collective mind?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Gaylord Fields:

@cal: That's what I said; they opened for plenty of acts. But not one in the United States.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Guido from Cologne:

Remember Blowing Up My Mind as a highlight on some Northern Soul comp. Guess I need that album Caviars and Chitlins
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm fred:

Bad timing to beg the question
Avatar 5:31pm Danny C:

@Tim ... Might have been. I have to check later. It was a New York based film like Pope of Greenwich Village or The Wanderers. That's where I first was taken by the group.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:32pm brainiac:

I hate to hear stories of record companies exploiting and ripping off artists.
All too common.
Avatar 5:33pm djsheilab:

Danny C—I think "Tell Him" was used in the Big Chill.
Avatar 5:34pm djsheilab:

Hello fellow girl group lover, Gaylord Fields! I know you can imagine how thrilling it is to be chatting with these fabulous ladies.

  5:43pm Miss G:

Thank you SheilaB, I look forward to re-listening as I wasn't prepared. Yes, we really did need this, and it did lift my spirits! A few minutes ago I typed into my notes: "'. . .and I nearly lost my mind' what a balm this show has been!"
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Ken From Hyde Park:
