  Fri. 4/15/16 3:27pm P-90:

H&O did do lot of very "coverable" songs. I was lucky to catch them live a couple of times in their heyday. Most of their records relied so much on studio contrivances that when they toured with their band and played those songs in live arrangements, it was like they were "covering" their own songs anyway!

Rona's book is the kind where you go to a publisher with a fool-proof title, and they pounce. But the actual text is a bunch of ho-hum filler. Cosmopolitan mag style.

Maybe they relied on folks seeing it being read on subways, park benches, etc., and then running out to buy it. Do that 30,000 times and you've beaten the odds.

@Sheila: That's the idea: the title is the whole point. Follow Jake's link to Amazon, you can see they printed the title in the biggest, poppingest black letters, filling the cover almost to the edges. Rona was one smart lady, she understood promotion bigtime.

We have the best karaoke night here in Seattle. It's not like that, which would be awesome, but it has all sorts of stuff you would never think of. Never in a million years did I think I'd be able to sing Archers of Loaf, Pavement, and a ton of Tom Waits at karaoke, but there it was.

The first time I saw Schwervon! I talked to the guitar player and said they reminded me of the Blake Babies. His reply was "go talk to her". The next time the drummer recognized me in the street outside the show. So far I've only met women who like that band, which is weird. Then again, not many people have heard of them over here, so small sample size...

Great show, Sheila! And we loved that Dreamscape track...

The soccer rivalry between Seattle and Portland has really impacted my ability to enjoy Portland without that bias haha. Enemy territory! But great for making large sales tax-free purchases

Avatar Fri. 4/15/16 5:24pm djsheilab:

@Cliff Yes indeed! Figured Tsunku needed to control the entire Japanese music market.

Thanks for being here @The Contessa! Sleep well.

@sheilaB -- yes, Dynamite Exploded is great! i don't have it, however prices have come down (to the 300-400 range) in recent years, for a while it was in the 800-1000 range... still far beyond my 45 budget, not to mention i doubt originals turn up often.

@The Contessa - Have a nice weekend! I remember this Toto song.

Hey Ken said he remembered Toto, before you asked for endorsements
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/15/16 5:37pm listener james from westwood:

I was quite addicted to Toto's "Dune" soundtrack back in the day. Heavy play at college.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/15/16 5:39pm Guido from Cologne:

Uuuuuh,
THIS one had a heavy rotation at our local northern soul allnighters.
Beautiful record and bringing back memories.
Love the choir

BTW Cynthia Loemij is a dancer, so she's not going to turn up in your searches. Again, something that only interests me
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 4/15/16 5:43pm Guido from Cologne:

well just £236.00 for Tommy Neal ... we get that from the petty cash ...

... that's why it is Dancing With Petty Booka now ...

In high school band, we were practicing some song called "Hold the Line" and the dude next to me crossed out the composer's name and wrote Toto on the sheet music.

@Ken: where was your school? I can't picture where writing "Toto" would be an act of defiance
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/15/16 5:54pm Cliff:

Great show today Sheila! And I hope you'll play more enka in the future :D
