Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

Lene! Thanks for the 1983 flashback. Yes it's from '78 but '83 was when my brother's girlfriend listened to "Stateless" nonstop.

Is Harold Ramis Canadian or is that the other guy?

I've only been shopping on record store day once - where I lived in ND was 100 miles from the nearest record store - went to a store in Fargo with a friend - it was pretty poor - small selection - overpriced common LPs, very few 45s, and a large stack of LPs I couldn't look through

No, Wayne's not the last. Only a couple are gone...

I'd like to hear a Buddy track with stolen McGriff licks, Lane. Recommend something, please!
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 12:47pm Alex In Illinois:

Jimmy McGriff is often heard on a certain 3pm section of a weekly radio show. I don't remember the name of the show, but the 3 pm section is called: "Let the B-3 be free at Three"
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 12:48pm Lane Steelpicker:

I'll hunt it up. I talked to him in St. Louis one year, thinking I heard the influence. He beamed big at getting caught. Recommended that I listen to Shirley Scott

Is that a Flanderism?
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 1:08pm Gaylord Fields:

I have a couple of mid-late-'60s Four Freshmen LPs, where they go in a bit of a mod direction; the songs that are good are exhilarating, and the songs that aren't good are embarrassing.

Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 1:20pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: The FF were way over their heads by the time of Different Strokes, but I can't really fault them for trying. Their harmonies are a gift, and any venue that keeps them alive is ultimately oke by me, even if their versions become cringe-making at times.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 1:21pm Uncle Michael:

@Gaylord; Don't get me wrong, I know that era caught a lot of legacy acts with their pants down. It's no shame. I have a certain fascination for that particular album.

I need to correct this entry. It's Luke the Drifter *Jr.*

@UM: Ned was falsely accused of being hopped up on said goofballs, then incriminated himself in front of a chunk of the congregation.

goofballs or golfballs?

Goofballs in his case.

@efd: I have the Paley Bros. LP, of course, and the "Come Out and Play" EP, and I foolishly thought that would be enough.
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 1:51pm Holly in NC:

@UM - I was just looking up Darrell Statler to see if Statler is his real last name (it is, unlike the Statler Bros) and turns out while I was noting that Darrell wrote "I Love The Blues And The Boogie Woogie " for Billy 'Crash' Craddock and totally bizarrely you were playing BCC at the EXACT SAME TIME. That is odd.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 1:53pm Uncle Michael:

I expect that sort of synchronicity all the time, Holly. Like....the back to back play of a Tommy James song and the b-side of a Tommy James cover was utterly an accident. Thanks for the info.

woah Holly - and both sides of the Billy Crash Craddock 45 are good

That's no way to treat one's peeps.

Melody partially lifted from "Them There Eyes?"
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 2:23pm Holly in NC:

LOVE Aguaturbia.
@Lane S - Thank you!

Coming up...an original version.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:30pm Uncle Michael:

now doubting this is the 1949 recording
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 2:32pm Lane Steelpicker:

Like that Grady Martin noodling. I grew up on the Foy Willing version
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 2:33pm Lane Steelpicker:

Sure sounds like Burl
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 2:33pm still b/p:

Recording quality sounds later, eh?
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 2:33pm Holly in NC:

Ah, Burl. Adore him, even though he unwittingly makes my live a living hell every Christmas season.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:34pm Uncle Michael:

It's Burl but I'm not sure that's the 1949 recording.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:34pm Uncle Michael:

wow...phase shifter headphone madness!
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 2:35pm Holly in NC:

Here is the 1949 recording:

Burl Ives — he don't know that he's ugly!
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:36pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:37pm Uncle Michael:

Thanks Holly. I'm sure I have a variety of versions. I just grabbed the wrong one.
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 2:39pm still b/p:

Doug Schulkind, re GTDS:
"You will never hear Burl Ives on this show."
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:40pm Uncle Michael:

Right...but thankfully you have me.
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 2:40pm Holly in NC:

@UM :-)
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:41pm Gaylord Fields:

Okay, then, but Burl shouldn't have been such an insect lookist. Or sing to the HUAC.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:45pm Gaylord Fields:

But if Pete Seeger can forgive Burl for naming names, so can I. But his talking smack about bugs, I can never countenance!
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:45pm Uncle Michael:

I still watch Elia Zazan films, too.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:47pm Gaylord Fields:

I even stopped watching Lainie Kazan films. That's how committed I am to the cause.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:47pm Uncle Michael:

That's committed...and you should be!

The Velvet Fog!
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:50pm Gaylord Fields:

The voices in my head that won't stop say otherwise, Uncle Michael.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:50pm Uncle Michael:

Ain't this pretty?
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:52pm Gaylord Fields:

It's lovely, very much so. And Mel's never really gotten his due as a songwriter.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:53pm Uncle Michael:

or as an actor
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:55pm Gaylord Fields:

I recently saw him on an episode of Run for Your Life, and he was really good.
Avatar    Fri. 4/18/14 2:55pm ndbob:

Thanks Unk! Have a great week and watch out for those insect-lookist types.
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 3:00pm earrie:

Thanks for the Friday aft tunesm UM.
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 3:01pm Mike East:

Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 3:02pm Lane Steelpicker:

Good show. Watch the MST3K version of Girl's Town. It'll restore your Mel...
Avatar Fri. 4/18/14 3:03pm Holly in NC:
