I bought that can "I want more" picture disc 7" at the St. Marks Kims location when I was 18 or so. I had just discovered the first four or five records and was blown away/obbsessed. I was VERY confused by "I want more" when I got home and spun it.

Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 10:06am the Canterbury wood-elf:

@Joe Please do! Violin lines in disco were always far too limited (those rapid descents). And yes, ES may conjugate poorly, but they rock very very well!
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 12/11/14 10:06am Brian in UK:

Joe got any funk bagpipes. Pibloch.

@Brian - you might wanna hear some Rufus Harley, but he's definitely not THIS funky.

How about disco ER??? Ya got that?
  Thu. 12/11/14 10:27am Mark:

This is the album with the 18 minute version of "By the Time I Get to Phoenix." "Chocolate Chip" is one of the silliest things I've ever heard. This guitar player's trying to keep it real by going all Ernie Isley/Hendrix, but it ain't workin'.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 12/11/14 10:28am Joe McG:

@Mark: No, actually, this is the one where he and Dionne combine "Phoenix" and "Walk On By" into an amazing medley. You're thinking of "Hot Buttered Soul."
  Thu. 12/11/14 10:29am Mark:

Oh, you're right!

Watch the Simpsons. It is one of the greatest pop cultural phenomena ever. I realized that (again) during the Labor Day marathon on FXX.

Avatar 🎃 Thu. 12/11/14 11:17am Roberto:

Yeah, so far there is no "was" as far as the Simpsons is concerned. Maybe someday.

@Cece: Loved that elk talk. My diaphragm has never been the same.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:18am Cecile:

I know! That was the best unintentionally funny stuff I had heard in forever.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:18am Cecile:

Too bad Tony doesn't archive Tape Hiss shows. It was a doozy.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:20am Cecile:

@Roberto I just took that show for granted. Watching the years I missed just showed me that the quality dropped from amazing to merely outstanding, and there were tons of gems I missed. I couldn't gripe about that.

this sounds like Skinemax "morning after" music.

Or the love theme from an 80s MST3K movie...like Clonus or Space Mutiny.

This Prince must be one of those songs I will wonder why I didn't like it at first.

Neil Young impersonating Neil Diamond, now that's entertainment.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:53am Cecile:

oh, that's an interesting couple. Hannah has Asperger's and Neil might as well. sometimes
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:55am Cecile:

that would work as long as they respect each other's "do not cross" lines.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 12/11/14 11:55am Brian in UK:

I thought the reference was to Jackson Browne and DH.
