Oh, wow. I wish I had this album. Unfindable. Solfeggio on calliope. The things you find.

nice to hear Solfeggio on a pipe organ -- I can just see the Trio pounding the keys!

It's a calliope.

"Nairobi Trio" written by harpist Robert Maxwell.

That was a fantastic cover right there!!!

I've always thought NRBQ was lame. And... that didn't convince me otherwise. At all. :P
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/29/16 4:07pm Parq:

Just read up on it a little. It seems Jack Lemmon and Frank Sinatra (!) each played the one with the mallets at some point.

Not only were the Beatles the greatest band ever, there's not even a close second
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:15pm rrg:

That's a surprise (to me), Parq, but an amusing/pleasant one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:15pm Alison Porchnik:

Queen was the greatest band ever, voted so by the British. The Kinks are a close second.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:16pm rrg:

They're wrong, AP. What do the Brits know, anyway?
Avatar Wed. 6/29/16 4:19pm geezerette:

Alison,of course you mean the actual Queen.
Avatar Wed. 6/29/16 4:20pm geezerette:

The one with the hats and corgis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/29/16 4:21pm Ike:

They often call me a hater, but what can I say? I'm just trying to emulate my idol, Robert Christgau.
Avatar    Wed. 6/29/16 4:22pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I liked that Moondog cover
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:22pm Alison Porchnik:

No, I mean Queen Queen.
The Chipmunks suck balls (Alvin too).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:23pm Irwin:

Christgau, who called me "a tedious ideologue with a hustle." Badge of honor!
Avatar Wed. 6/29/16 4:23pm geezerette:

Ike I've been meaning to ask you,is your cat transfixed by twinkies?
Avatar    Wed. 6/29/16 4:24pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I can't wait til Christgau comes up with a smarmy one line epithet about me someday!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:26pm rrg:

I hope to outlive Christgau. There's a decent chance I will.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:27pm Irwin:

It's a jackpot quote, BB.

Only thing to follow Todd Hammes with.
Avatar    Wed. 6/29/16 4:33pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Yes Jake, people pronounced it in all kinds of different ways and had to be told over and over it wasn't "boner".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:33pm Ken From Hyde Park:

The "4 Movements" song title was so long that the main web page got messed up. When I tried to click on the playlist, it invoked the pop-up player. I arrived here by going to the bottom of the page and clicking that playlist link.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/29/16 4:33pm Ike:

(If I'd've been honest, I would have said Pauline Kael, but Christgau made for a funnier comment given whose show this is.)
  Wed. 6/29/16 4:34pm JakeGould:

Kale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:36pm rrg:

Oh, the calliope thing is on a CD? I thought it was vinyl. Maybe it IS findable.
  Wed. 6/29/16 4:36pm Polyus:

I thought having a hustle was considered a good thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/29/16 4:36pm Webhamster Henry:

and CDS are the Perfect Sound Forever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:39pm rrg:

CDs are still almost the only way to get lossless (highest quality).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:40pm Irwin:

I love CDs. They're so disposable and replaceable.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/29/16 4:47pm Parq:

I've met Cristagau. We have a mutual friend. He's like that in person, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 4:57pm Irwin:

I hate Christgau because he's anti-pancakes. It's been a 40-year campaign. He just won't let it go. Some weird obsession.

Cool garage-y Left Banke tune
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 6/29/16 5:03pm Irwin:

The whole 1st LB album is terrific. Michael Brown left the band when they began recording #2, and it's uneven.

I thought it was the Mannix theme before I recognized it. For kids in JHS they're pretty impressive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 6/29/16 5:44pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They're tight!, but got that SchoolBand thing they all have of not quite being on pitch w/ each other that makes it - well - right for Zappa. Frank said the hardest thing was getting Pro Musicians to let themselves sound funny...

It turns out that the "Circus Clown Calliope" CD is available as a 'manufactured on demand" CD-R from Amazon. I'd prefer the "real" CD but it probably makes no difference. As long as all the bits are the same.
