A different version of this Home & Garden song is on their first LP -- but I like this version better!

Hark! I see a Tellus up there!
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:12pm Tony Coulter:

In the pic above today's playlist, Local International 1–14 is on your left (it's the purplish one).
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:13pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Turnip!

Do Tell-us!
  Tue. 4/14/15 12:15pm Dean:

I think you must mean poiplish.

I join you now. Hello!
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:16pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Dean & DCE!!
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:16pm Doug Schulkind:

I adore the Tellus cassettes. I remember when WFMU was getting them in the mail. The last few were actually produced as CDs. A little bit heartbraking.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:17pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Egg-zackly! Poiplish.....
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:24pm Tony Coulter:

I actually wouldn't mind in the least if all my cassettes magically got turned into (nicely mastered) CDs.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:25pm Doug Schulkind:

To USB or not to USB, that is the question.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 12:27pm V Priceless:

am I an SOB if I don't USB?
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:27pm Tony Coulter:

I lurvs this Heiner Goebbels track....
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:33pm Tony Coulter:

OK: So who recognizes the LP under today's cassettes? (Actually, it's a double 12".) Hint: It's by the only group ever to have worked with both Daevid Allen and Whitney Houston.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:34pm βrian:

Heartbrake sure can wear the rotors down in a hurry.
  Tue. 4/14/15 12:35pm Dean:

Shakespeare never once mentions CDs, vinyl, or digital anything. But he does have Hamlet say this:

"Yea, from the table of my memory
I'll wipe away all trivial fond records,
All saws of books, all forms, all pressures past
That youth and observation copied there,
And thy commandment all alone shall live
Within the book and volume of my brain,
Unmix'd with baser matter. Yes, by heaven!"

And Jack Cade in Henry VI, Pt. II, says,

"I have thought upon it, it shall be so. Away, burn
all the records of the realm: my mouth shall be
the parliament of England."
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, βrian!!
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:38pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Huh. I wonder if the Scene Is Now copped the title of their great LP "Burn All Your Records" from the Bard of Avon (Calling)?

Tony! I cheated and googled your clue so I'm disqualifying myself.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:42pm Tony Coulter:

Googling is Kenny G–endorsed, so admissible.
  Tue. 4/14/15 12:43pm Dean:

I just assumed Shakespeare was prophesying Birmingham's response to The Beatles in 1966.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:44pm Tony Coulter:

The Paddock is a Mick Hobbs outfit and is probably just Officer under another name.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 12:53pm V Priceless:

@ Tony: that LP jacket does bear a thematic resemblance to The Strangler's 'Dream Time' LP cover.
  Tue. 4/14/15 12:53pm Dean:

Percy Sledge, RIP.
  Tue. 4/14/15 12:54pm Dean:

Coincidentally, Sledge recorded "When a Man Loves a Woman" in 1966 in Birmingham.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 12:54pm Tony Coulter:

@ V Priceless: Very much so!
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:08pm Tony Coulter:

Just thought of a good mashup: "When a Man Loves a Man and a Woman." (Percy Sledge meets Francis Lai.)
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:15pm V Priceless:

I'm still waiting for someone to mash-up "Paranoid" with The Kinks "Here Comes Flash"!
  Tue. 4/14/15 1:15pm Dean:

"When a Man Loves a Man and a Woman in Love": Sledge/Lai/Streisand
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:17pm Tony Coulter:

So, the only artist on these two Local International tapes I've never found anything else by is Suyama Kumyko (on now). Has anyone ever heard any of her LPs? www.discogs.com...

Just have never across any of them in all my record poking and travels.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:20pm Tony Coulter:

"When a Man Loves a Man and a Woman in Love with Love" (Sledge/Lai/Streisand/Debbie Harry)

When will it end?
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:28pm Snortley:

Certainly there's stuff around by René Lussier, like the album with Fred Frith, "Nous Autres."
  Tue. 4/14/15 1:30pm Dean:

Lots of Lussier and LePage on Victo and Ambiances Magnetiques.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

Heya Snortley,

Yeah, there's a ton of things with René Lussier out there -- I've got a bunch. I've found things by everyone on these tapes except Suyama Kumyko. As you can deduce, these tapes were a big influence on my listening habits (have had 'em since the '80s).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/14/15 1:32pm Cecile:

hola!
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:33pm Tony Coulter:

Ahoy, Cecile!
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:38pm Rich in Washington:

My favorite Lussier albums is Le Trésor De La Langue. Pretty dang cool.
Hola, Senor Tony!
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:38pm Tony Coulter:

The Robert Griffin LPs are very un–Recommended Records-y — in that they are solo sort-of-jazz piano recordings — but they are great and quite unique: rateyourmusic.com...
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:39pm Tony Coulter:

Heya Rich! That's my favorite Lussier album as well!
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:40pm Rich in Washington:

I can't think of too many albums that play with the natural melody of people's speech in that way. Maybe Scott Johnson's John Somebody comes close.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:41pm V Priceless:

Hi C!
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:41pm Rich in Washington:

this is amazing, Tony! Been in and out of meetings all morning, so unable to pop in until now.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:45pm Tony Coulter:

SO: The one problem with this Tellus cassette is that it has very little high end -- it has perhaps been overly dolby-ized.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

To make up for that, I've cranked it up high.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:47pm Tony Coulter:

Volume-wise, I mean. I leave it to you to adjust your treble.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/14/15 1:48pm listener james from westwood:

We got treble! With a capital T!
  Tue. 4/14/15 1:49pm Dean:

All about that bass, no treble.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:49pm Rich in Washington:

The versions of the Tellus series I've run across have pretty inconsistent fidelity. I don't own any of them so I don't know if it's the people archiving them or how the original articles were as they came out.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:49pm Tony Coulter:

Work that treble, baby!!
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:50pm Rich in Washington:

I am missing so much upper range in my ears that any add'l treble is no trouble.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/14/15 1:50pm Cecile:

You know, Charles Vrtacek should write a book. He has been in the thick of the whole tape thing for at least 35 years.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:51pm Tony Coulter:

I love Vrtacek's Residents parody cassette -- which I will air here one of these days.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:52pm Rich in Washington:

I think of all the things I've ripped and archived when I used to wear shit headphones. I can hear the horrid EQ jobs I did on them. It really pays to spend the extra bucks for decent cans.
Amusingly, was in a LinkedIn discussion about monitoring and headphones and it degenerated into a poo-slinging fest.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:52pm Rich in Washington:

Residents parody? That sounds intriguing, Tony!
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

This thing: www.discogs.com...
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 1:53pm Tony Coulter:

It's spot on.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 1:55pm Rich in Washington:

Now I wanna hear it but it's 'not available'.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 2:05pm Snortley:

Tony, were you a Tellus subscriber back then?
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

No, I wasn't. Got the few Tellus cassettes I have later on and not from them directly (don't remember when or where).
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 2:07pm Snortley:

Tellus #12 is very good, as is the tango issue, too.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:08pm Tony Coulter:

I've got the Fluxus one -- forget what number that is. I will play it here sooner or later.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:10pm Tony Coulter:

It's #24: www.discogs.com...
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 2:12pm Snortley:

I don't think I have that one. Look forward to hearing it.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:12pm Tony Coulter:

I'll keep an eye out for #12 and the tango tape -- don't have either of those.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:25pm Tony Coulter:

So, according to this admittedly questionable article, my Portland neighborhood (zip code 97214) has the most vinyl shops per capita of any place in the entire United States: www.redfin.com...

I kind of think it might be true, actually. Oddly, that (possible) fact has nothing whatever to do with why I moved here.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 2:26pm Snortley:

Turns out the entire Tellus catalog is on Ubuweb now:

www.ubu.com...
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:26pm Tony Coulter:

Good to know! Thanks, Snortley
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 2:27pm Rich in Washington:

Tony, I hear Little Axe is getting the axe. Do you know if this is true?
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:28pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: Nope, fortunately that is not true. They have found a new space, into which they are moving next month. 46th and SE Fremont, if I remember correctly.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:30pm Tony Coulter:

Which is great, as they are definitely one of the very best Portland record stores.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 2:30pm Rich in Washington:

Back when I used to lurk on reddit/vinyl, it was amusing whenever a PDX record store thread came up.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 2:31pm V Priceless:

wow - Vegas at #3? Never would have suspected that.
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 2:34pm Rich in Washington:

Little Axe and Exiled are my current faves, maybe followed by Clinton Street. I almost never frequent stores on the west side. It is a completely unknown territory to me.
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:34pm Tony Coulter:

C.N. (of "Cannon Y for C.N.") = Conlon Nancarrow, I'm sure
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:38pm Tony Coulter:

@ Rich: For me it's Little Axe, Exiled, and Crossroads (in no particular order)
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 2:44pm Tony Coulter:

Belmont Records, which is a stone's throw from me, has been getting better of late. Lots of cheap oddities.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 4/14/15 2:59pm listener james from westwood:

Always fun to have a Tape Hiss Tuesday. Thanks, Tony!
Avatar    Tue. 4/14/15 3:00pm V Priceless:

Thanks TC!
Avatar Tue. 4/14/15 3:01pm Doug Schulkind:

Sweet hissing, Tony!
