RIP, indeed. Axelrod was a goddamned genius.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:06pm JtotheK:

Hi Duane. Thanks for spinning Axelrod tunes today. I have been digging out various LPs he worked on to play around the house. Also his interview in Wax Poetics (spanning 2 issues!) was pretty great, will be re-reading.
  Wed. 2/8/17 12:07pm Christian:

AXE, he kept it raw from the first day

good afternoon duane and others.
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 12:10pm Little Danny:

Hi Duane and all. Axelrod is the greatest, his two "Songs of" LPs are desert island discs for me
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:10pm kwhitehead:

I could think of no one else to do proper justice to the legacy of Mr. Aexlrod than Duane. Bring it on, sir.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:11pm kwhitehead:

erm , "Axelrod". Sorry about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:11pm JtotheK:

Hi Danny! Both "Songs Of" are fantastic. I also really like 'Earth Rot'. I've never found a copy of 'Seriously Deep', so that one I'm not familiar with.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 12:12pm bobdoesthings:

oh snap

Don't need no ticket!

The breadth of David Axelrod's career is amazing. I hope you'll visit some of his work with Beach Blanket Bingo singer Donna Loren, just for fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:14pm JtotheK:

*Note to self: give a listen to The Four King Cousins 'Introducing' ... been a while since I've listened to that LP.*
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:15pm upsetter5001:

Thank you for taking us on a trip to the AXE! RIP David Axelrod. Not too familiar with his output but I know some of his classics.
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 12:16pm PKNY:

Going clicky-star crazy for the all of the classic Axelrod productions so far, and I don't see that stopping!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 12:16pm bobdoesthings:

@pkny - SAME.
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 12:17pm βrian:

Not me. Just enjoying the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:17pm JtotheK:

@ChrisB -- regarding Donna Loren - her Axelrod-produced 45 '90 Day Guarantee' is a good one!
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 12:18pm Little Danny:

Even as a huge Axelrod devotee it's crazy how many productions of his I still keep hearing. Duane played something by Pride recently and it kinda floored me
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 12:21pm ChrisB.:

@Jto: Oh yes! That's on her Complete Capitol Recordings comp.
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 12:25pm Little Danny:

Goes without saying but epic set so far Duane!
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 12:26pm Passaic River Blues:

His boundless vision is what always stunned me: beautiful but never gratuitous string arrangements, jazz approach to highlight individual parts to cohere into a whole, respect for expressive & full percussion, similar respect to the bassist as more than the plodding tertiary aspect of the rhythm section, I guess his respect for each musician (studio guys/hip rock dudes/vocalists), avoiding kitsch & melding rock-jazz-soul-cinematic soundscapes into something organic & unique, ability to shift from studio to live situations, and a readiness and enthusiasm for unusual subject matter, styles, players.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 12:31pm Cheri Pi:

Hey Duane, these sounds truly dazzle
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 12:40pm Passaic River Blues:

This is awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:41pm Gaylord Fields:

Duane, you hare hitting all my David Axelrod favorites just when I need them — from Letta to McCallum to his recent Mo Wax recordings!

The wrecking crew
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:44pm blee:

David Axelrod was in a league of his own. Great show, thank you, Duane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:44pm KRYPT:

Hi Duane, Thanx for all the Axelrod he is so all over my entire music collection, he was a one of a kind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:45pm Gaylord Fields:

@JtotheK: The Four King Cousins LP, as excellent as it is, is not an Axelrod production. That was done by Lex de Azevedo, who some took as a pseudonym of Axelrod but is his own man (and a member of the King Family himself).
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 12:50pm Little Danny:

One o' my fave Axelrod obscurities is a '64 Capitol 45 by the Vulcanes; "Moon Probe" is a surf-y guitar instro but with a majestic arrangement and sense of physical space like only Axe could do
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:51pm Gaylord Fields:

And we haven't even visited Mister Lou Rawls yet!
  Wed. 2/8/17 12:51pm Slaboch:

Killer show Duane! Keep it up!

"Station stop is Lou Rawls."

Ladies and gentlemen....Lou Rawls!

this Little Willie John, wow
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:59pm Gaylord Fields:

The tracks Axelrod did with H.B. Barnum as arranger especially hit the sweet spot for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:59pm Leonardo:

Good to be in the right place at the right time.

greetings Duane and all

I never noticed how "Everything Counts" cribs from his earlier "Holy Thursday" before
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 1:12pm coelacanth∅:

general confessional>holy thursday>everything counts = one complete suite.
(in that order)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 1:23pm chris:

listening to Letta Mbulu sing is the aural equivalent to getting a super long, tight snuggle hug from gramma. deep love and respect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 1:24pm chris:

and hi, Duane and fellow passengers!
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 1:26pm Duane:

Hello Chris and all fellow Passsengers..finally had a moment to come up for air! Hope you're enjoying the show!
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:26pm Slick Goldtooth:

Always doing a tribute right on this program. Good stuff
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 1:27pm bobdoesthings:

my favorite track by Letta Mbulu is "mahalela" - was that Axelrod too? off the album "Letta"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:29pm JtotheK:

@GaylordFields -- re: Four King Cousins - wow, thanks for correcting! As you mentioned - I had read/heard it was produced by him under a pseudonym.
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 1:30pm Duane:

Good one bob! That track was actually produced by Hugh Masekela..no small slouch either!
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 1:30pm Little Danny:

Great album bobdoesthings but that wasn't an Axelrod thing
  Wed. 2/8/17 1:30pm Cecile:

Midnight Love on the Duane Trrain.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 1:30pm bobdoesthings:

Ah thanks @duane / @little danny - this is why I love FMU.. music education. Thanks.
  Wed. 2/8/17 1:33pm Cecile:

Either that or Paint Your Wagon
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@JtotheK: An understandable misconception, considering the name and production similarities of the two Capitol producers. I'm sure de Azevedo was paying close attention to what his cohort Axe was doing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/8/17 1:36pm coelacanth∅:

and holy thursday first appeared on "release of an oath", as i said earlier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:41pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks for showing the Axe love, Duane!
Avatar    Wed. 2/8/17 1:50pm Duane:

Absolutely gaylord! Thanks for lending those discerning ears:)

Oh man, now dreaming about a fanfic zine about the summer of 1983 when, in this better imagined world, Sylvester and Spicoli lived and partied together in a cabin in Big Sur.
