John Martyn has the first CD single released over here or maybe the world.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:11am Joe McG:

Is that right, Brian? Poor John. They sawed off his leg towards the end.
  Thu. 1/23/14 11:13am Dave from Knoxville:

This is the song Mumford and Sons stole all of their sings from, isn't it?
  Thu. 1/23/14 11:15am Dave from Knoxville:

Hey Joe, I know I owe you money; we had three hospitalizations last year, and it's slowed my repay, but I will eventually get it to you.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:15am Brian in UK:

He was his own worst enemy, Joe. Funny I played 'Solid Air' last week, still sounds sweet.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 11:16am Goyim in the AM:

Ah, Jim O'Rourke. What should have been a delightful 2 minute cover becomes an endless annoying deathslog.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 11:17am earrie:

"May You Never" is a fine track on that solid air album, too.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:17am Carmichael:

Good morning Joe and Friday Eve'rs.
  Thu. 1/23/14 11:17am van:

It'll take longer than this song though...
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:18am Joe McG:

@earrie: That's the B-side of the single! I couldn't decide which side to play. Then I noticed the "evil."
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:20am maestroso:

That Jim O'Rourke track was very nice.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:22am Brian in UK:

You made the right choice, Joe. May You Never always gets played despite being good the other songs get lost in its shadow.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 11:22am Goyim in the AM:

15% of that Jim O'Rourke track was lovely.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:23am Brian in UK:

How's about 20%. You must like a fifth!
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:23am Charlie:

He had to make it long enough to be sure that the women in all the time zones heard it.
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 11:24am earrie:

Yeah, what Brian said. And "I'd Rather be the Devil" is played even less.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:25am Joe McG:

Charlie! Come back soon.
  Thu. 1/23/14 11:26am LovecraftDude888:

I'm gonna be on and off but listening as I roam around this afternoon....boo ya
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:26am Brian in UK:

I second that emotion, Joe. Come back big ears.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:26am Charlie:

Thanks Joe, may be a while... Glad you're here!

Thanks, Charlie! Booya, Lovecraft!

my favorite cover of "major tom" since "breaking bad."
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:31am Joe McG:

@listener james: I like this better than the original!

wow Space Lady rules
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:33am Brian in UK:

@earrie. I remember watching that programme when it was first on the TV. What an eye & ear opener on a par with seeing Jimi Hendrix play Purple Haze on Top of the Pops for the first time.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:37am Cheri Pi:

Snow delay but finally here!! Heya McGaskots!
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 11:38am earrie:

@Brian. Wow. No doubt.
..and that's an acoustic guitar..
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:40am Brian in UK:

It has been a good twelve months for acoustic guitar.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:42am Joe McG:

Hey, Cheri Pi! Sorry your snow was delayed!
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:43am Kevlicki:

Amusing, the previous song that sparked my interest happens to be Mr Ron Morelli. I knew Ron when he lived in New Paltz. He contributed a lot of effort to the DIY scene there in the late nineties, organizing shows and singing in Devola.
Some really good times!
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:44am Kevlicki:

@JoeMcg I have to agree with you, that major tom version is really good
Avatar Thu. 1/23/14 11:44am bibi:

thats a patented science museum soundtrack.
Avatar    Thu. 1/23/14 11:44am Carmichael:

OK, gotta put the nose to the limestone. But' I'll be keeping an ear on you, so don't try anything funny.

Nice one Joe. Loved Jimmie Spheeris' album 'Isle of View' say it quickly.

Joe, Joe..... ;-)
I knew you were joshing w. your cat songs, because you are a good man.

IF you ever want to really tease a cat, try "Here, Kitty, Kitty" by Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet (obviously, I am NOT a good woman)
