Two things off the bat.... I saw in a newsstand tabloid today that Cher is seeing Gregg Allman again and I notice that some insurance company has an Allman Brothers song on a TV commercial.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:11am Droll:

Ken, Damn straight!
  Sun. 5/5/13 12:11am Chop Scott:

OUCH! My high school band mates always wanted to play this song endlessly--then to go into Cream Crossroads. Yes, I grew up in the Mid-West! Cheers JOE!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:13am Joe McG:

I kinda feel like playing this over and over. How many times can you take it?

Joe, do you have the mega Duane box (Skydog), & if so, your thoughts?

Did you consider doing this with the live version?
Avatar    Sun. 5/5/13 12:15am KP:

You know there's a longer version out there somewhere.

I always had more fun way back then with The James Gang.

Joe, Can you spin this backwards?
There's also a smokin' version of FZ's band doing this with Bobby Martin singing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/5/13 12:16am Ken From Hyde Park:

The commercial is for motorcycle insurance. Members of The Allman Brothers band died in motorcycle accidents. Have these advertisers no shame? Short memories, maybe.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:17am Joe McG:

Ken, that's hilarious kind of.

If you put this track on repeat, fairly soon WFMU and 104.3 will be playing the exact same song at the same moment, and the very universe will be cloven asunder.

Joe, you don't have enough time to play this more times than I heard it growing up. I think I've built up immunity.

But on the evening's playlist, what could be post-Whipping Post?

Wow, two requests for Frank Zappa. I might have to go look for it. BTW, G and fleep, you both just made me laugh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/5/13 12:22am Ken From Hyde Park:

Dial up Station Manager Ken to get advice on how to slow down, speed up, or otherwise mess with songs.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:22am Droll:

I think you need a playlist disclaimer that no Allmans have died.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:23am Joe McG:

Droll, I think you have a good point there! NO ALLMAN BROTHERS HAVE DIED TO MY KNOWLEDGE.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:23am Joe McG:

Incidentally, this version of "WP" is only 23 minutes long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/5/13 12:24am Ken From Hyde Park:

There ought to be a mash-up of Whipping Post and Devo's Whip It out there.
Avatar    Sun. 5/5/13 12:24am KP:

Molly Hatchet's cover of "Dreams."
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:25am Joe McG:

@Ken: That's scary, I was wondering if I should follow this up with some DEVO. But I think G is right, "WP" is not to be followed.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:26am Joe McG:

@Holly: Sorry I missed you up there! No, I don't have it! Many mountain jams, I imagine! @Chop Scott: Marching band version! Must find!

Joe, let us know when it's time to raise our lighters up over our heads. (* Checks the kitchen drawer for a lighter. *)

I would suggest "Free Bird", or "Tuesday's Gone". I'm serious.

Well, it was the end of the set.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:32am Droll:

When I first uploaded this album cover as an avatar a few months ago I was sure I couldn't get more than 2 uses out of it...
I presume this version is *only* 23 minutes long because that's all an album side will hold. The free-jazz-space-jam probably covered nights 5-9 of a month long residency.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/5/13 12:33am Ken From Hyde Park:

This is WFMU. Up next....Björk!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:34am Joe McG:

The problem with watching the LP is that it's hard to tell how far along you are. We're getting close to two-thirds of the way, but boy oh boy....
Avatar    Sun. 5/5/13 12:35am KP:

I think this is where Duane plays Strangers in the Night with one hand while doing a somersault.

For the first time in recorded history, Joe's plsylist will be shorter than Bryce's.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:36am Joe McG:

@G: Hey, all I need is about 5 more half-hour versions and Bryce is so in trouble.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:37am Droll:

Please say when it gets to the end you hit the reverse switch and we get another 23 minutes in reverse! Seriously, this will sound fantastic backwards!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 12:37am Parq:

Okay, I admit it, I still love that transition out of the solo.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:37am G:

Now just pop on a 35 minute bootleg of Yes doing Ritual with the extra extended bass sol.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:37am Joe McG:

I really need to do my high school heavies show one of these days.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:39am Joe McG:

@Droll: Great idea, but unfortunately I put the LP on TT1, which is not the backwards one. TT3 is, and half of the time, one channel pops out, so I rarely use it. I'll leave the stunt turntabling to Mary Wing, every Wednesday night/Thursday morning!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/5/13 12:40am Ken From Hyde Park:

There are some good riffs on In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed, if I recall.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:40am Droll:

G, Chris always takes the long bass solo so the other Yes bandmembers can get some prog-fan booty during the break. They nned the first 25 minutes to look for a girl.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:40am Joe McG:

The only bad thing about this version is that there isn't a long drum solo.
  Sun. 5/5/13 12:40am Chop Scott:

The Southern extended jam of Whipping Post directly leads towards the soup fully condensed -not to be so obvious, but c'mon--FREE BIRD. That is the song I wanna hear..
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 12:41am G:

Right after this, the members of ABB joined Noodlers Anonymous

I thought I saw Mary Wing around somewhere.

@Droll: Huh, I thought it was so Rick had time to finish his chicken tikka masala and hit the loo for a quick dump
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 12:42am Parq:

Ken from HP. I have felt for 40 year that "Liz Reed" would make a good number for a jazz combo, with alto sax, piano and tenor sax standing in for the originals.
Avatar    Sun. 5/5/13 12:42am KP:

Not Free bird but maybe Show Me the Way/Free Bird.
  Sun. 5/5/13 12:42am Chop Scott:

Strictly speaking, it's a Chamberlain. The version of the instrument safe for non-prog rockers. I never realized how enormous this arrangement is: 3-4 guitars, bass, drums, organ, Chamberlain...

This is a fun sound from Bonnie Hayes!
  Sun. 5/5/13 1:39am hal:

Wow, this Bonnie Hayes song slays. Good looks, Joe
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 1:39am Lonely Planet Boy:

Just added Bonnie Hayes to my Rhapsody playlist. Soon to go to iTunes to purchase.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 1:39am Joe McG:

Two points for whoever knows who this is. I played them last week for the first time.

Simon & Garfunkel.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

Is this the Simon & Garfunkel "Tom and Jerry"?!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 1:40am Matt from Springfield:

Was this a hard 45 to find?
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 1:40am Joe McG:

@Matt: Two points for Matt from Springfield!
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 1:41am Lonely Planet Boy:

Simon & Garfunkel. You're quick Matt!

I'll split the points with Matt anytime.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 1:42am Joe McG:

@Matt: Not really, but it was at the bottom of a big stack of wrecked records. It's not in great shape, either, but it's cute to have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 1:43am Matt from Springfield:

The 33 startup amused me :) But I've known for a while about their teenage collab of that name, never heard how they sounded!

But very generous of you to split, b! We'll take a point each, and I'll let LPB borrow mine next weekend! :)
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 1:46am Lonely Planet Boy:

Thanks, Matt.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 1:47am b:

What a great title by Latimore!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 1:47am Matt from Springfield:

Catchy disco, Wiki actually has an article on that one: "Frank Farian's assistant Hans-Jörg Mayer (aka Reyam) had discovered a popular Tunisian folkloric song, "Sidi Mansour" while on holiday, and rewrote the song into a disco track."

@B: Mos def! Though rednecks have certainly added some benefit to soul bands over the years.
@LPB: I'm having my point framed, it will look real nice!
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 1:49am b:

Diggin the clavinet! Was just listening to Godley & Creme using it on "L" today.

JANE! Good one, for a much-maligned group past their prime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 1:56am Matt from Springfield:

Whoa, I like this one! Didn't know it was the Starship!
@G: Was that the exact same one? I've noticed them reusing backing tracks in those days.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 1:56am G:

They were past their prime, past their second, and probably past their third :)
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 1:57am Lonely Planet Boy:

best Clavinet: Stevie's "Superstition" and whatever is on Elton's "Capt. Fantastic" LP.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 1:57am G:

@Matt: Not the exact same, but pretty close in quite a few spots

Just saw great Jefferson Airplane clip of them playing on a rooftop in NYC, early morning. Godard.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 1:58am Droll:

Laugh all you want, this is the best sounding 45 of them all. A good mastering always stands out even on a worn disc.

Does the station have Mother's Finest? That's some fine country-fried rock.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 1:59am b:

I'll take Mickey Thomas's Starship over the baloney Marty Balin was putting out solo at the same time.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 2:00am Lonely Planet Boy:

G:, you're absolutely right. Which I have on an A&M 45! Shoulda thought of that one.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 2:02am G:

Loved that tune in the first half of 72, LPB. Had to listen to radio Luxembourg from my spot in the UK to hear it, till I ordered the 45 -- it wasn't on the UK charts or radio....
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 2:02am b:

Wow. Rance Allen can WAIL.
Avatar Sun. 5/5/13 2:04am b:

And that will be good enough to send me off to bed for church in the morning. Another great half-hour of 45s Joe!

Hi Julie!
Is "Jane" up your alley, or is that era of Starship too late for your interest?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 5/5/13 2:09am Ken From Hyde Park:

Mission accomplished...I spotted a shooting star right at the end of Jane. I just now see that was by Jefferson Starship. That's a good omen, right?

NOOOO! No reggae Snoop! Marianne preferred!

@KP: I was just saying g'night to b! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 5/5/13 2:15am Matt from Springfield:

@Julie: It was very familiar to me, you've probably heard it before but didn't recognize without hearing it. Late 70s, but good solid rock.
