Serpico was sent to the hospital that was across the street from the apt I lived in for 8 years. Of course it was decommissioned in 1982 and it was a homeless shelter by the time I lived across the way.

Joe I just got here during Greg Kihn,but i'm having fun....And i always thought "DC" meant washington dc in that song. (regarding the u.s.influence on ja policy.)

They carved their name into someone's chest for an album cover in the 80s.

I used to run into Serpico in Chatham NY from time to time. I think he still lives in the area.

@coelacanth: Maybe you're right! I just assumed he was talking about a cop.

Wonder what The Beatles thought of this version? They are plucking circles around them, I think.

Joe McG -What Cecile said makes sense too...(I should know it in my head by now) So...Is this the excellent covers set?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/29/13 11:28am Jeff:

Even though it's in a completely different style, that bluegrass "I've Just Seen a Face" triggered a sudden recollection of those Big Daddy records in the early '80s (on Rhino, I think). Like the eponymous one and "Meanwhile...Back In The States".
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/29/13 11:31am Brian in UK:

Think I have a cold coming on and I was bought some Jim Beam Rye for Fathers Day, hard to find over here as most people prefer the subtle shades of Scottish whisky. Might have to take a snifter or two later. Purely medicinal you understand.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 8/29/13 11:32am pacific standard simon:

@Jeff - You know they have a new one coming out, right?
Avatar Thu. 8/29/13 11:34am Joe McG:

@Jeff: I'm tempted to play another version of that song! Dillards do it, too.

I was first introduced to Mr Beam around 1970 by a guy in the US Navy, he got it from the PX at a silly price. You can only get it here at specialist shops believe it or not.

trish I would not consider mixing it. Our Scottish friends do like to add a little water to their own whisky at times. Not my cup of tea so to speak.
My wife just made some wonderful Rhubarb & Vanilla jam as well as Rhubarb & Ginger jam.

My local tea & yarn shop sells marmalade made with Jameson -- tempting.

I hate to say it, but the wildflower marmalade from IKEA is pretty tasty.

@trish root ginger is steeped in the rhubarb overnight, then removed and crystallised ginger added at the end.
