@Joe

I think it is the first track on this album here:

Usually those European Liberty/Sunset-cheapos were re-packagings / compilations of earlier stuff.

.... maybe there is a connection ... sometimes it happens that recordings from the same sessions are used for varying artsts names.

I do like Joe Walsh, just the Eagles have always left me cold. I worked their show at Bethel Woods last summer and I surely can't fault their musicianship or professionalism, and they are really nice guys. I just find the whole to be far less than the sum of its parts. Maybe it's a left-coast thing with which I can't identify much. I do, however, sing along when it comes on the radio, so I might just fear it as an earworm.

If I need a mule skinned Dolly's my gal. Clean as a yodel.

yeah, I was just about ready to punch out for lunch and this damned mule shows up, needing to be skinned...

Wait...are the Haden sisters really triplets? Crap, didn't realize that.

@pc: Petra, Tanya, and Rachel. What Q-Ts!

@pc dat: haha, me neither. i just googled because i thought it was just a clever name
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:21am Mike Noble:

back to weather and super bowls... before this year there was a rule that stipulated the average weather for a host region could not go below 50 degrees F on the day of the super bowl.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:22am pc dat:

Yeah, I know about the whole dang fambly, just missed the fact that they're triplets.

pgw: same here. Funny

@dc pat who is the oldest is the most important. Minutes count for everything. Speaking as a dad of twins.

@DCE: the first super bowls were all split between california, florida and new orleans (superdome)
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:24am Mike Noble:

if you're thinking about cold football championships, you're thinking about pre-super bowls, like the last eagles championship: 7-0 in the snow at franklin field at upenn.

the Silver Fox
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:25am Mike Noble:

or you're thinking about the ice bowl, which was the NFC championship, at a time when the AFL was still laughable and the super bowl was a joke.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:25am pc dat:

@Brian: that's what I hear.

Oh man, football players! Soccer is played no matter what is going on. My son practices outside in the snow in 15 degree whether.
Avatar Thu. 1/30/14 11:25am pgw in mntclr:

honestly, i didn't know there was a third sister until she married Jack Black, aka Charlie Haden's son-in-law
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:26am DCE:

@ Mike Noble, so they changed the rule, I guess...well, maybe someday Cleveland will actually see a Super Bowl if not participate in it!
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:26am Mike Noble:

correction, my eagles reference was to their first championship, not their last. my belove iggles have never won a super bowl.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:26am Parq:

This is a brilliant set, Joe. Funny, I still remember when a majority of FMU listeners turned up their noses at country.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:26am KP:

Q-Ts!
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:27am Mike Noble:

@DCE - I don't know if they changed the rule or just waived it for this one time. Apparently they got to thinking about this more than a decade ago as a way to help NYC come back from 9/11.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:28am Joe McG:

Thanks, Parq! Hard to imagine!

Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:29am DCE:

@ Mike Noble, haha, yeah, that seems about right...ineffectual politics even in the world of sports, taking 13 years to help NYC get back on its feet...

FMU did great job with George Jones' exit.

got me.. doing that!
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:38am Parq:

KP, agree completely. By then, George Jones was such a part of what FMU is about that I regarded his death as an occasion uniquely suited to FMU treatment.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:38am Mike Noble:

@DCE- forgot to say, cleveland is also unlikely because your stadium is considered too old at this point. build a new one and you stand a better chance at getting the super bowl.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:41am Lizardner Dave:

I don't know that the "50 degree rule" ever officially existed and if it did it wasn't lifted for NYC, Indianapolis hosted the game two years ago. Nobody crapped themselves about possible snow then because Indianapolis has a domed stadium.

I was in Nashville when He Stopped Loving Her was breaking. It was unbelievable.

@bibi: My favorite "new" album!
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:44am KP:

The 50-degree rule was real and was waived as was the no-swamps-for-setting rule.

Joe how is Jersey City doing as the official hosts of the Super Bowl?

doesnt seem to be a touring band...

This part of the UK (Westonzoyland) has taken a terrible beating from the rain. The flood waters have not subsided over a month later.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:46am Joe McG:

@KP: You can listen to 7 Second Delay from last night for an up-close view of the NFL in Jersey City!
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:47am Mike Noble:

temperature rule would obviously only apply to outdoor stadiums.
Avatar Thu. 1/30/14 11:47am fleep:

@Carmichael Are you getting any of the rain? We may even get some down here.
  Thu. 1/30/14 11:47am karmalade mitty:

why can't they play in snow? too soft this modern crop of players!
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:48am Brian in UK:

@Carmichael. Are you more handsome than others give you credit for. Gracious, charming and is it a pleasure to be your in company.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:48am Mike Noble:

it's generally colder than 50 at night in new orleans in february, but they have the super bowl like every 3rd year.

Twin grills for the record.
Avatar Thu. 1/30/14 11:49am bibi:

talking about delay, i think the 'natural reverb' world record has been beaten in some crazy fuel storage, somewhere in scotland. something like 3 full mins !

Bob Seger instead of Pete Seger.
Good idea! ;-)

@karmalade mitty: exactly, too soft. Don't tell me throwball players are tougher than soccer players.

The 3hrs whipped by too quickly. Until then.
Avatar    Thu. 1/30/14 11:54am Carmichael:

@fleep: Yes, it rained last evening and is due to continue today. Good luck with your arid climate.
