we missed you very much last week, Gaylord.

A beautiful weekend on the isthmus.

I'm Kitchen Concubine this evening. Umami is my theme, so the music fits right in.

(Well, not the Beach Boys, but still...)
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:20pm Gaylord Fields:

@βrian: I think the Beach Boys can sometimes be quite umami, especially post-'60s.
  Sun. 4/23/17 8:25pm cheri:

well Gaylord, I don't want to get into trouble so I better quit while i'm ahead, you know? night all

@Stevel: The one and only. Where is your neck of the woods?
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Little Danny: I'm privileged to have a colleague such as yourself listening in!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:40pm Cooh John:

Hello Gaylord fellow voices in the unevensong choir. Got my diet of Beach Boys cuisine Friday by seeing/hearing Brian, Al, & Blondie.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:40pm Little Danny:

Oh man, Gaylord, you're too kind. But thanks! Also I'm three songs into listening and have already had my mind blown (that Bachelorette!), so thanks again!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:42pm Uncle Michael:

I'm lost and looking for my DJ.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:42pm Gaylord Fields:

@Cooh John: That's a pretty strong lineup, as far as BB component bands go.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:44pm Uncle Michael:

This is definitely the road not taken by Elvis.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:44pm gal_x:

Elvis sounds so smooth and nice.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:44pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: Little Danny can be found here!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:45pm melinda:

It would have been an interesting road.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:45pm sweeks:

What an Elvis gem ya found here
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:45pm Uncle Michael:

Gaylord, at this hour, you're my DJ.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:46pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: And what a shame, and what a loss for us. He could have made for a pretty good jazz-pop vocalist.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:47pm Uncle Michael:

Peter Guralnick on that song:

" Here you get a glimpse not of the life he led but of the things he felt and the movies he might have made.

There is nothing like it in any of his other films – certainly not in anything since “King Creole.” There is a moment of interiority, however stylized, a moody dreamscape to which Elvis lends himself as if he had somehow found his way into a Gene Kelly musical. But it is only when he actually begins to sing (after a minute-and-a-half of voice-over mood shots), that we sense the quiet, earnest sincerity that belies the stagy showiness of the rest of the film. Just listen to what Elvis brings to this beautiful Doc Pomus-Mort Shuman composition if you want to experience the core of vulnerability that lies at the heart of his music."
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:48pm Uncle Michael:

Now I want to hear Chet Baker sing it..dammit.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:50pm gal_x:

thanks for that post, @Uncle Michael. (^_^)
I have never heard Elvis like that before (thank you, Gaylord.)
And Chet Baker. Yes, pretty much anytime. (^_^)
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: Several years ago, Debbie D. and I met Peter Guralnick while he was hanging out at the Sam Phillips Recording Studio, and I took the opportunity to tell him what a service for humanity he did with those two Elvis bios.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:51pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hey, all. Sorry to be late to the party!

Was out throwing ball with my daughter and it is now too dark for that.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:51pm Uncle Michael:

What else could you do?
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:52pm Gaylord Fields:

@gal_x @sweeks: It breaks my heart that he wasn't allowed, or didn't allow himself, to pursue this style of singing.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:54pm Uncle Michael:

It's funny how an actor can make blockbusters to pay the bills, and artsy little films for their souls without undermining their brands, and yet so few singers and musicians seem to feel like they have that latitude.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:56pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: Exactly! "One for you; one for me..."
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 8:59pm Uncle Michael:

We need more musical John Casaveteses.

,,,,,Uncle M. Did You make the trip to ks. on April One,twenty seventeen? Anything interesting occur ?
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:04pm david from ks.tt:

,,I unno where that tt came from!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:04pm Uncle Michael:

I make the trip to KS almost every time my feet hit the floor. April 1 was a good road trip to KC, for sure.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:04pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: Precisely!

Nice segue into Marvin Holmes!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:15pm Uncle Michael:

Marvin Holmes put me in mind of Melvin Sparks.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:16pm Uncle Michael:

The guitar lick on this is sort of "It's Your Thing", inside out.

@sugarwolf: Depends on which end of the pigeon supplies the message.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:18pm Gaylord Fields:

@listener mark: It's truly my pleasure!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:19pm Uncle Michael:

I never met him, but I did attend a tribute to him at the Lied Center while he was still living. It was a star-studded affair.

My social circle and his had minor overlap, but I never attended any of the parties James Grauerholz threw. Friends of mine did.
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:19pm cheri:

Gaylord, may I just add that this is really a glorious show and you outdo your self every week!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:20pm Uncle Michael:

I'm not bugged, David.

@Uncle Michael: The Blue Stingrays are really Tom Petty's Heartbreakers sans TP.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:25pm Uncle Michael:

But maybe I was already hearing Tom Reccchion when I said that.

@Uncle Michael: Yeah, I got distracted and the playlist got a little less accu than it should be.
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:27pm david from ks.tt:

,,,,Diggin this spell version !
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:28pm Eric Hat:

Haha! The intro to this song is sampled on an Andre Nicatina track. Or vice versa perhaps? Anyways, cheers and happy Sunday Gaylord and folks...
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:31pm Gaylord Fields:

@Eric Hat: Andre Nickatina sampled Robert Wyatt in this instance.
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:34pm Listener Robert:

Which was the one shortly before the mic break that sounded so much like "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes"? Was that "A View From Her Room"?
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:35pm Gaylord Fields:

@Listener Robert: Female vox? If so, yes.
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:36pm Carmichael:

Now this is a vibe ....
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:37pm redkayak:

Hey Gaylord - will you ever do a "beautiful music" themed show again??
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:38pm Listener Robert:

Yes, it was, so that must've been it, thanks, Mr. Fields. (Darn, by writing "Mr. Fields" I invoke Sidney Fields on the Abbot & Costellos show!)
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:38pm jillydg:

Sublimely slick Smiling Faces Gaylord darling. Can't wait to see yours next weekend...
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@redkayak: I'm not planning one, but I've learned to never say never.

@Listener Robert: Which reminds me: You and that loafing roommate of yours are way overdue on the rent!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:42pm jillydg:

I don't know. Some pretty young coffee barister called it a Dad hat. Maybe something with grates. Perhaps some WoofMoo cheese?
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:43pm Eric Hat:

Awesome information Gaylord. I'm gonna guess it's a sample from his cover of Ivor Cutler's 'Go and Sit Upon the Grass'?
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:44pm Gaylord Fields:

@jillydg: Why has "dad" become such a scathing insult?!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:44pm jillydg:

Not that I don't love my Dad hat...
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:46pm Eric Hat:

Probably not the more I think of it...
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:46pm Gaylord Fields:

@jillydg: And not that I don't love you in it...
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:47pm gal_x:

I am catching up on comments…I did not know that connection of the Blue Stingrays and TP! Always learning and enlightened by you, my GF (great friend!)
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:49pm Carmichael:

I'm always entranced by Stereolab.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:49pm Gaylord Fields:

Then "gal_x" must stand for "gracious and lovely_xcellent"!

Went outside to see some weird liquid precipitation, and could still make out Latetia Sadier, love the Lab!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:52pm gal_x:

haha! Oh you! (*n__n*)
  Sun. 4/23/17 9:54pm Listener Robert:

Loafing? He isn't even in the union!

Funny that you mention me & my roommate & "rent", because I & my roommate are both WFMU donors. We'd no idea of that when a mutual friend put us together to look for a place to rent.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:55pm jillydg:

It is a scathing insult? I hear it as an endearing term for pop's a little square (shouldn't he be?). To me, a baseball hat is a baseball hat is a baseball hat. Unless it's autographed. Then it's a crown!
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:56pm Gaylord Fields:

@jillydg: I know it's not so bad.
Avatar Sun. 4/23/17 9:57pm coelacanth∅:

when i was looking for a housemate my craigslist ad said "must be open to a wide variety of music because you will hear all kinds of things".
more than one response included a reference to wfmu.
