Here's something interesting, and slightly relevant to current conversation: Last night before bed I was looking at some of Frida Kahlo's dresses, corsets and such and then moved on to her paintings. During the night I had a dream that Olivia Neutron John was playing at an art show I was curating...

Actually, "Diamonds and Rust" was Scott's original request, but I don't have it. Don't even know if it was a 45, although it should've been.

thedunkel's very presence is making me thirsty. TOO EARLY......

Bear!,that was a guess on my part! i just checked:"1hr,56min". i do work about 1 hour from brooklyn,so going to or from there was my plan; but it wasn't meant to be.

(...i want what <she's having.)

Ah, thanks for the Drifters.
Good morning, Joe and all.

My wife is a Judy Collins fan. Still hasn't come to terms with the Priest cover. We agree to disagree.

Thanks, fleep and PKNY. I'll look for one. Also, "Breaking the Law," which I need to have.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 10:58am drr:

heh, never heard "Star Of The Ghetto" before today, but this marks the second time I've heard it today.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 10:58am Cecile:

Joe, just buy the whole British Steel album. It's all choice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 10:58am coelacanth:

isn't diamonds & rust a Joan Baez song?
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 10:59am Cecile:

it is, coel.
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/7/15 11:00am Joe McG:

@drr: That's weird! Who else spun this one today, drr?
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/7/15 11:01am Joe McG:

@Cecile: It's certainly got one of their less embarrassing album covers!
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:01am Claw!:

Fleep! V!

Just got back from a coffee run - I'm gonna have to agree with MORE PRIEST. Always more.

Although this is pretty dope, too. :)

You will be missed, Mr. King.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 11:03am Dominick:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/7/15 11:05am coelacanth:

Thanks Cecile! i just looked. i guess Judy Collins primarily did covers.(or,only?)
'never heard the 'priest cover. both of those "genres" were far away from where i was at back then.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:05am drr:

Joe: YouTube rabbit hole: was listening to Ben E. King's version of "Into The Mystic" and the AWB came on after.

Wow 7 mins plus on a 45 is REALLY pushing it. Probably why it was a little thin sounding.
Avatar Thu. 5/7/15 11:07am Claw!:

I'm sorry you're feeling down. Glad you're here. Company is good for sadness, even if it's virtual company. *hugs*

some here may be interested to check out Evan Funk Davies' tribute to Errol Brown last night.

Joe, Priest transcend embarrassment.

Yeah, Joe. I'm with Cecile. Priest is above all embarrassment. Even when Halford fell of his Harley that one time.
He is the original Beyonce... FLAWLESS.

Joe that wah wah in the song just inspired me....have you ever considered a porn soundtrack show? Maybe that would be stepping into Morricone Isle territory.

  Thu. 5/7/15 11:38am KP:

Good, thanks
Avatar 🎃 Thu. 5/7/15 11:38am Joe McG:

@Brendan: It's a great idea, but I don't have too many porn soundtracks! I'm sure I can harvest a set from the WFMU library, though. BTW, these are all songs that Erroll Brown wrote. Those are the ones I'm picking.

i'm very happy to hear these album tracks that i've never heard, since i have only one hot chocolate album.(especially with the warm crackle of vinyl)

Damn, Joe. This has been a great show, and the tributes are just wonderful!

Tablespoon each of honey, lemon and bourbon in a warm shot glass 'll do you right, Joe. Adjust proportions as the current environment dictates.
I think it might have come from one of my tattered old Foxfire books.
