You made our day with the Jude Sills song. Judy and I have spent some hours pondering that one and pondering Jude.
Thanks as always

Excellent documentary about Ronnie Lane:
Ultimately sad though.

Thanks for that link, tadpoles.

You're welcome Melinda. Available on Netflix if you're interested. Cheers.
Sat. 4/8/17 9:42am Santos L Halper:
That is a good flick tadpoles. I didn't even know that was a Faces song, just the Who Came First version. And now I have to go find the Turtles(!) doing Judee Sill...

Sat. 4/8/17 9:45am David in ATL from NJ:
Bob, what has PJ been up to?
🎃 Sat. 4/8/17 9:46am melinda:
My first celebrity sighting was Ronnie Lane at the Whole Foods in Austin in the early 80s. I was in junior high and wasn't familiar with the Small Faces but had just seen him on the cover of Rolling Stone, surrounded by musician friends who were playing a benefit concert, I think. It was a big deal to me then but since he wasn't a current pop star my peers wouldn't have known who I was talking about, had I shared the story.
Sat. 4/8/17 9:49am Stuart Rose:
Hey, Will, I think the stranger Jude refers to in the first verse is JD Souther, who upped and left her.
I always wondered, though, about her Jesus - does he call her, and everyone, to bear their own crosses as they go through life and suffer. Or are these men she's put her faith in, like JD , really just bandits, false messiah ? Anyway, poor Jude had her needle and her great talent and her mysticism never could overcome it.

Most famous Studio/Live..."Wheels of Fire"..Cream !
Sat. 4/8/17 10:34am pp:
didn't that last tune's melody remind one of Golden Years? The title of the compilation was Heroes ... hmmm.
Sat. 4/8/17 10:37am Bob Brainen:
Yup, Wheels is the one I was thinkin' of (gimme the studio sides!!)
Any other 2lp live/studio albums??
Sat. 4/8/17 10:38am Stevel:

I live near Lindisfarne
🎃 Sat. 4/8/17 10:56am tadpoles:
"Anyway" by Family is one side studio and one side live but I guess that doesn't count as there are probably lots of single albums like that n'est ce pas?
Great show thanks Bob!

Chambers Bros. gotta check it out
Sat. 4/8/17 11:03am Jack:
Canned Heat - Living the Blues - their second album i think. I once heard Jonathan Swartz play part of it on WNEW in 197?, and then interupt, take it off and apologize for playing it!
