Dave, I'm concerned that the new schedule means you'll be starting even after the final stretch has begun.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 9:07pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- tasty Chico Hamilton tribute - *&* follows Monica's adieu ftrg Chat Atkins & Lionel Hampton & things real good...deserves a BennyHill pat on the head, I do believe...

...Chat Atkins - great C&W monologuist...
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 9:11pm Droll:

I also have questions about how the schedule change effects WoE. For instance, is the amount of rock constant by percent or elapsed time? Is the show still 2% rock, or now 3%?

By far, best part of the new schedule is A440 is back!
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 9:12pm Dave Mandl:

@Droll: I'm still working on those figures. Can I get back to you?

Well now we'll have to adjust to the segue from "Not Monica" to WOE as of next Sunday.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 9:22pm Droll:

Take your time on that one, but I need the answer before the Final Stretch. I don't suppose you've worked out if the number of echoes (feedback) is being reduced by 1/3rd or if the delay time is being decreased holding the number of echoes constant?

We have to make a lot of accommodations on our end, you know.

...when visiting friend in San Fran. - just something about sitting on his stoop there made me wish I was Jorma w/ his acoustic...
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:01pm pacific standard simon:

If you were in SF, you probably wouldn't want to be Jorma sitting on a stoop. His ex-wife (the one who painted the cover of this album) was a notorious Mission District drug abuser who eventually managed to die of it, a few years ago.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:02pm Dave Mandl:

I was a big J. Airplane fan when I was a kid, but Hot Tuna fan too. Sorry to hear about his wife. I didn't know that.

- oh - there is that sort of fog over the bay...
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:06pm pacific standard simon:

Me too, Dave. Always thought of Amon Duul II as the Jefferson Airplane of Germany, and X as the PUNK Jefferson Airplane.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:07pm Droll:

pss, Then what is X's "We Built This City?"
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:08pm pacific standard simon:

I stopped buying their albums by then. Maybe that god-awful cover of "Wild Thing"?
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:11pm pacific standard simon:

I do know that Live At The Whisky is their 30 Seconds Over Winterland.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:14pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- amusing, as X is usually associated w/ The Doors like that; if there was a Punk Airplane - I'd like to think Jack Casady woulda been in it anyway!...
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:15pm JakeGould:

I appreciate X the same way I appreciate the Replacements: Neither ban’s music does anything for me, but I am repeatedly lectured on their relevance. Which means… I don’t care. Maybe if I grew up in L.A. or Minnesota when each respective band was big… But don’t care.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:18pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- wull - X was in there early enuff, pretty original - great poetry & energy (lecture lecture)...Replacements a kinda Punk Stones or Faces mebee (??) - just great R'n'R panache, which is needed from time to time...now, Husker Du...
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:19pm David L.B. is RRN63:

...Flesheaters from L.A. ...
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:20pm pacific standard simon:

Jack had some "new wave" cred, with SVT. And we used to bump into Paul Kantner at The Mabuhay in North Beach -- he was quite interested in The Nuns, who were also sort of Airplane-like in their lineup, if not their music.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:20pm JakeGould:

Husker Du I can get. But I don’t. I grew up weird. I do appreciate Greg Norton’s mustache. Holy crap. Good facial hair.
  Sun. 12/1/13 10:21pm KP:

Kim Fowley co-wrote the Byrds' Citizen Kane and for that he is forever aces.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:26pm Tome:

I'm waiting for the "Blind Faith" Box Set myself actually..
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:26pm Droll:

Completists are the only ones left _buying_ music, thus massive box sets. The upside of a Yes box set is.... uh....
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:26pm JakeGould:

I want a Roger Dean box set. Just a huge box set of Roger Dean album covers. Maybe on big 12x12 pieces of wood to mimic an album’s dimensions. No words even. Just images. A box set I can place on a shelf or literally mount on a wall.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:27pm pacific standard simon:

I can't imagine liking Herbie Hancock enough to own more than a record or two. And I don't get the "relevance" (or significance) thing that Jake mentions, aside from The Beatles and like that. Either you like a band or you don't, and everybody should get off your back.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:28pm JakeGould:

Pacific Standard, you mean how people have thrown the Replacements & X down my throat as dogma? I don’t get it either. Don’t accept it either. Just listen to the music.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:30pm pacific standard simon:

Actually, I listen to the music all the time.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:30pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- wull - there is real 'history' - but a band can be 'relevant' like that - & just not to your tastes. Very little tastes good when shoved down your throat...

Jake, Coffee table LP-porn: www.amazon.com...
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:32pm JakeGould:

Droll, I know of those books. But I am talking about a literal crate of 12x12 wood. Each adorned with Roger Dean album art. Not Hipgnosis (like some of their stuff, but a lot of it is bad (i.e.: Black Sabbath covers), but Roger Dean.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:33pm pacific standard simon:

I need a coffee table book of coffee tables. And a coffee table to put it on.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:34pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- a Boxed Set is a kind of piece of furniture...I always thot a coffetable book of Great Covers on Bad Albums would be both Art & a practical Guide...

Hey, Holly.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 10:41pm Droll:

Jake, Many of those albums were gatefolds, so you probably mean 24x12. And you probably need both inside and outside, so two 24x12 per release... It's a lot of wall space, but would be a trip to stare at -- I get it.

1966. Myself - I think Revolver's as good a candidate for BestAlbumEver as any. You'd think Artists would vibe great w/ each other (ever intro'd any to each other?) - but if you think about it - they're opinionated enuff about doing it their own way & not the other guy's or they wouldn't be bothered. Mojo Magazine had a 'Revolver Reloaded' cover CD of Revolver that was very good I thot...

...there's all kinds of Writing just like there's all kinds of Music or whatever...reviews bug me when they trash something in a Genre the reviewer doesn't even like to begin w/ & ergo prob. doesn't understand (like Sinatra saying R'n'R is bad Swing: & your point is??) - altho' it may be legit to critique a whole Genre (say, teenpop) in a broad sense...
- You mean - if they don't like it, they're just not publishing a review @ all? I can see that as a reasonable style choice...

Droll, in someways we are living in a very open yet closed media world. Also the logic of people who say that BuzzFeed needs to be positive to assure affiliate ad clicks is nuts. I work in web tech. I assure you the tone of the review & ad clicks have little correlation.

12359, Don't worry, Dave's going to drop the first hour which is always a snoozer anyhow. We'll still get the second two hours of flute solos and 7/8 time that we came for.

You couldn't spare words, like today. I don't know whats best actually..

- that's true I think: the triangulation of Artist-Critic-Audience has changed from when everyone spent so much time worrying about it - but I could be wrong...I often say FMU brings me the Audio of stuff I only used to read about...

Reviews are good for giving a release context. I usually read reviews after I've heard the album several times.

@Droll: I thought the second hour was the snoozer.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 11:50pm JakeGould:

Reviews are more like critical documentation on the positive side nowadays. On the negative/cynical side nowadays, I see reviews as simply search engine fodder nowadays. There is so much noise out there. People just want to grab Google hits to get clicks.

- much more stuff faster & more sensationalistic for immediate consumption...that's my critique...more explosions & gunfire...

When I have to work on Sunday, I miss the first half hour anyway. Now I won't.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 11:53pm Droll:

Maybe the solution to crappy consumer reviews is to go back to professional music criticism.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 11:54pm JakeGould:

It’s a contrast to when I would take the subway to Tower Records on 3rd & Broadway to get Pulse. And would read “Desert Island Discs” to get clues to cool stuff. Now I can’t stand lists… The Interwebs is just lists!

Same here when there was Bizz Magazine.

Thanks, DaveM! Good luck catching your train.

..it's like Todd Rundgren, I think, observing that putting the production tools in everyone's hands would *not* make everyone a skilled engineer; Writing well about Music is kinda hard ! Most people can't tell you why they like it or don't *@ all*. Very many are hacks. It's notorious that people review things they don't even listen to, watch, read...

Music journalism is one thing. Never saw a record review that was worth a fart in a handbag.
Avatar Sun. 12/1/13 11:59pm Droll:

Thanks Dave, see you next week.

Next Sunday is going to seem like a daylight saving time switch.

History books are the same, very few of them saw the actual story.

@David LB: "we buy white albums" was at the rex fair I think

Correction, see you in two weeks.
