The lazy calm at the week's start. A few live performances included, but mainly music with an ear tilted toward string-driven things. (Visit homepage.)

Listener comments!

  Mon. 11/26/12 12:02pm DCE:

this is beautiful!
  Mon. 11/26/12 12:14pm Van in DC:

Happy Monday to you Irene and to everyone
  Mon. 11/26/12 12:22pm DCE:

it's been a very very busy Monday so far, but hopefully I'm getting the best of it
  Mon. 11/26/12 12:50pm pierre:

Bonjour Irene, and listeners

Need some soul healing here; thanks a lot as it is doing me some good.
  Mon. 11/26/12 12:57pm Cheri Pi:

Bonjour Pierre, Irene, all the DC's
  Mon. 11/26/12 12:59pm Matt from Springfield:

Bonjour to Irene, Cheri Pi, DCE, Van in DC! (I myself am a near-DC)
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:00pm pierre:

salut Cheri Pi, how are you doing ?

salut Matt from Springfield; and DC's too
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:00pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: How wonderful that Irene's acoustic and eclectic selections are there to sooth us on the most brutal day of the week! Karmic justice.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:02pm Chris from DC:

Matt, was never quite sure if it was that Springfield. Great set here.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:04pm Matt from Springfield:

Sure is, Chris! Hello, to another DC..

Liking the playlist orange too, Irene. More a Valencia or Florida to Irwin's tangerine.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:11pm DCE:

oh that Mary--she can sure play the guitar!
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:26pm Van in DC:

Oftentimes I think there are more of us DC area folks than NY NJ ;)

Lovely set that was Irene!
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:32pm DCE:

urge for going!
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:32pm DCE:

"all-time best fall/change song"!
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:33pm Matt from Springfield:

Yay Tom Rush!!
Yay "Urge For Going"! :) It's def that time of year here
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:34pm DCE:

"the trill that chills"
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:35pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: You were on the boards with me when I first heard Tom Rush, like 2 years ago! :)

@Van: Quite the DC-area presence! Though I heard there are a lot of local NJ/NY listeners who listen radio only, the boards understate their presence.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:37pm Chris from DC:

Nice, never heard this Tom Rush before.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:38pm DCE:

Matt, you have a memory like 10,000 elephants with computer chips
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:39pm DCE:

the older I get, the more I get Richard Thompson. When I was a young-un he just sounded like an old-un to me.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:41pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: Mainly because the setting here today is similar as the season, website, song, artist and commenter(s) as when I first heard. Never forgotten Tom Rush since!

After all, the Pidge tells us to "always, remember..." ;)
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:46pm Matt from Springfield:

Ha ha! Good one from Tim Rose!
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:46pm Matt from Springfield:

And "Trouble"!! This was amazing as the penultimate song in "Harold and Maude".
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:49pm Listening Out There:

Decent Yosuf Islam...
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:50pm pierre:

does anybody had a blank right after that Cat Stevens song ?
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:51pm Listening Out There:

Stevens converted to Islam in December 1977[8] and adopted the name Yusuf Islam the following year.

The singer attracted controversy in 1989, during an address to students at London's Kingston University, where he was asked about the fatwa calling for the death of author Salman Rushdie. The media interpreted his response as support for the fatwa.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat_stevens
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:52pm Cheri Pi:

Yes I had a blank after Cat Stevens, then Neil Young returned
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:53pm Matt from Springfield:

"Harvest Moon" is great--especially good if you have to do some floor sweeping!

The riff is a slower version of the Everly Brothers "Walk Right Back". Another good one worth listening to.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:54pm Matt from Springfield:

Yeah, the blank was probably just an error in switching to the next track. All's well that ends well.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:56pm Mike East:

I think the Harvest Moon album was the first Neil Young I ever listened to knowing it was Neil Young. It kinda skewed my perception of him for a while...although I would bet not as much as someone who heard Trans first.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:56pm Listening Out There:

RE Neil Young: His recent memoir is a good read. Wart 'n all.

  Mon. 11/26/12 1:57pm dale:

urge for going, a child's song and driving wheel are the best rush tunes. end of story.
  Mon. 11/26/12 1:58pm Listening Out There:

er, "Warts and all" :) It's an idiosyncratic memoir, which reflects him well, IMO
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:00pm Mike East:

@dale - I like Yyz, myself.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:02pm dale:

wrong rush i think
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:04pm dale:

there's a dvd (netflix maybe?) of neil within the last couple of years solo at massey hall in toronto. some footage of him and his brother in their hometown talking about childhood there. it was pretty good if you're a fan
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:05pm Mike East:

@dale - probably right.

@Irene - Harold & Maude is a must see. Its like the Graduate, except the woman is older, the boy is younger, and its Cat Stevens instead of Simon & Garfunkel.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:06pm Van in DC:

Wow, yeah, our hippy 20-something gorgeous babysitter used to feed us Cat constantly. Wow did we all have a crush on her :)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:06pm joe:

Harold and Maude is a must see.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:08pm slugluv1313:

just tuning in to hear "Harvest Moon" -- just too perfect (and to this day, still get all teary-eyed whenever i hear it) . . . "Urge For Going," so perfect for these cold November days . . . and "Trouble" always gets me in the guts (the Kristen Hersh's version is pretty soul-splaying too) . . . WONDERFUL show, Irene, THANK YOU!!! will have to catch up on the archives :) (and YES!!! "Harold and Maude" definitely a must see!!! i did not see it until somewhat recently myself, although i do recall when it was released when i was a kid)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:09pm Matt from Springfield:

Harold and Maude is a lovely "hippie movie"--I highly rec! Cat Stevens soundtrack, mostly his existing songs but "If You Want To Sing Out" was written especially for the film.

@Van: My Dad said how pretending an interest in Cat Stevens was a great way to meet girls then ;)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:11pm slugluv1313:

@ Van -- ha ha! lucky you! high school biology teacher used to play a lot of Cat Stevens for us in class while we were doing lab work . . .
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:13pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: The Magic Christian I think would be another good "hippie movie", albeit a surreal as opposed to lovely one. And Badfinger/Thunderclap Newman on the soundtrack!

I like how many movies used to have their soundtracks "provided" by a particular good artist. Makes for a coherent, whole scheme to go with the film.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:14pm dale:

yay moodies! justin could write a song
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:15pm DCE:

oh, great Moody Blues tune!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:15pm DCE:

cool, it's a medley!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:16pm dale:

segue into the pinder stuff....
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:16pm DCE:

I love how all their album sides from this time period were all mixed together
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:19pm Matt from Springfield:

@DCE: That's why DJ Julie played this entire album (actually I think it was "In Search of the Lost Chord") one night, because all the songs on a side blend into each other with the MBs!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:21pm dale:

i was watching some youtubes of denny laine led moodies - crazy difference
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:22pm Listening Out There:

The Moody Blues track...is it mellotron in the background?
Avatar    Mon. 11/26/12 2:22pm Irene:

Yes, a lot of the Moody Blues' albums were stung together as a suite. I have a particular "acid" memory attached to that Moodys medley... :)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:23pm dale:

yes - pinder was the mellotron master
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:23pm Mike East:

@MfS - In that same vein (namely the Peter Sellers vein), I watched "What's New Pussycat" last weekend. Also recommended. You can guess who does the title track of that one.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:24pm dale:

  Mon. 11/26/12 2:24pm Eric:

I've been just a little bit obsessed with this song this past week. Love "Head"
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:24pm Van in DC:

Ooh, I'll have to catch up on that Dark Night show :)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:24pm Matt from Springfield:

While we're still on the subject of "hippie movies" and their soundtracks! :)
Jack Nicholson and Bob Rafelson were the main writers for "Head".
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:25pm pete g:

Hi Irene!!! Play that Porpoise baby!!! And, of course, always great to hear Moore & Sons ;)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:25pm Hrundi V. Bakshi:

Birdie Num Num.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:25pm Matt from Springfield:

@Mike: Thanks, I've been wanting to see that, as well as "Tiger Lily", the early Woody Allen movies.
Avatar    Mon. 11/26/12 2:26pm Irene:

Yes, they were maybe the earliest adoptors of the mellotron. There's an interesting documentary on The Mellotron which discusses the problems of making one of those things work on the road.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:26pm MD:

That song is so beautiful...I want to hear it on my death bed!!! ( the porpoise song)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:29pm DCE:

whoa, early Vangelis!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:29pm Matt from Springfield:

@Van: August 2! https://wfmu.org/playlists/shows/46764

Btw, listener "Dan in Falls Church" and I are trying to get a northern VA Meetup going--trying to meet in Arlington around Dec 8 or so. Interested?
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:30pm slugluv1313:

sadly, at one point i sold all my Moody Blues LPs -- so do want to get them back again . . . and "Porpoise Song" segueing in to "Aegian Sea" PERFECT!!!!! THANK YOU AGAIN, IRENE!!!!!!!!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:30pm Matt from Springfield:

Others in the area are welcome to, but because some NoVAns were reluctant to go into the District for a social, I'm trying to string together a NoVA Meetup first, and if that goes well, a larger DC Area Meetup will be planned. Stay tuned folks...
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:33pm slugluv1313:

@ DCE, i know what you mean about Richard Thompson! i never really saw him as an old-un, always *kinda* liked him (especially the Richard and Linda Thompson stuff), but i totally appreciate him more and more the "older" i get :)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:33pm InBrkly:

This set makes me want to request some Comus but I think all of their songs are like 10 minutes long.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:35pm Van in DC:

Holy smokes, just for an instant during the opening of this track just now I could've sworn it was about to rain from Candy Clouds! (courtesy Hans Dulfer) :)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:35pm DCE:

fiery fiery fiery
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:37pm Van in DC:

@Matt - just saw your message there - thanks! And yes I would be interested!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:38pm asparagus:

Best set of music ever?
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:38pm Van in DC:

mmmmm, in DC, are you thinking Adams Morgan...? Gosh I would so not mind foraging at Amsterdam Falafel again :)
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:39pm dale:

having nothing to do with anything other than the title of the song being played, another must see film is friedkin's 'sorcerer'
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:39pm DCE:

got my vote!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:40pm Matt from Springfield:

Great Van! Dan was thinking meeting at a CD Cellar in Arlington, it has a bar above it and that seems to be a good central location for us Virginians.

I'll announce on Meetup.com when it's official--and I'll be sure to spread the word here!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:41pm Chris from DC:

Many possibilities in DC. If you all end up at Galaxy Hut in December that might work.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:41pm dale:

some embryo would go down smooth after this
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:42pm Matt from Springfield:

DC will prob be the next one--there's an even larger community of listeners based there (BSI, dc pat, Denise, Chris, etc), and I don't know yet where might be a good venue for that. BSI mentioned a good bar once (and I've been to it), but it's pretty far up in Columbia Heights, past U St. But U St. would prob be the "central" meeting place for that one.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:43pm Chris from DC:

Dodge City if you're thinking U St.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:45pm dale:

anyone remember a place called 'the beat' in portchester? just down the street from the lifesavers factory
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:46pm DCE:

is this off the Winds of Change album? I think so...
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:48pm DCE:

guess not!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:48pm asparagus:

Who is the drummer on this Frampton? Amazing tone
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:51pm will:

Irene, you're some psychedelic today! Spinning, Will J
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:52pm InBrkly:

Pledged.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:53pm Snortley:

@Dale: Just remember Rapson's.
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:54pm DCE:

oh hell yeah! you're really rolling today, Irene!
Avatar    Mon. 11/26/12 2:55pm Irene:

Thanks for all the kind words everybody. Frampton's drummer, by the way, was John Headley-Down. Catch you next week at noon!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:56pm Van in DC:

Many thanks for a great show Irene...always a most welcome opening to the week's journey!
  Mon. 11/26/12 2:58pm Matt from Springfield:

A most wonderful assortment of songs today Irene! Thanks for your "antidote", it always works!

I'll keep in touch with you DC and VA listeners before issuing an official Meetup!
  Mon. 11/26/12 3:00pm Alan Cynic:

Harold & Maude.....yes!! Others in the hippy vein....'Private Road', 'Zabriskie Point' and 'If' ?
  Mon. 11/26/12 3:00pm Listening Out There:

Thx, Irene! Great program...
