AHH! Miss Yvonne Baker. Last time Stacy and I were at Val Shively's, we called Yvonne Baker and she wouldn't say a word to us. It took Val a long time to penetrate her icy exterior. She isn't keen on being in the limelight. Actually, she wanted to hang it up in the 50s. Used to have a MINTY east coast vinyl stocker of this one. Sold it to pay a hefty car repair bill.

@JP, it's not a commercial station, is it?! Last time I heard a commercial "alt" station, it was mostly "classics", i.e. the same-old same-old Nirvana and STP from the 90s, and a few mediocre alt-top-40 crossovers like "fun." Ugh.

It WAS a commercial station, Ike. That's why I was so surprised. But they did that thing Commercial stations always do where they pretend like they plucked the artist out of nowhere, and they never did anything before the station found them.

Avatar    Fri. 9/15/17 3:47pm BronwynB:

I was OBSESSED with Bad Reputation when I was 7 years old. It was on the Shrek soundtrack (it was a cover version actually) and I would jump up and down and sing along 20 times in a row if no one yanked it off. My cousin thought it was a "bad" song because of the "damn" so she would try and switch it to the Smash Mouth cover of I'm a Believer that was on that album, and we'd fight over it.
Avatar    Fri. 9/15/17 3:48pm BronwynB:

We listened to that album over and over and over. Snicker if you want but it introduced us (indirectly, via covers) to Joan Jett, The Monkees, and Leonard Cohen.

By the way, I never cared for that Kid'sBop stuff either.

Back at work, everything nearly back to normal. Going to work late tonight and through the weekend to make up for the days I missed when I didn't have electricity.

@Sheila
How do you like John Miles' "Rebel" album!
In the end it is an Alan Parsons Project album.
Parsons, Wolfson, Powell, everyone is involved.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/15/17 5:46pm Cliff back in the U.S.S.A.:

Leaving a little early, thanks Sheila!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/15/17 5:46pm Carmichael:

@contessa, I couldn't get hold of him in time to tell him about Sheila. He's normally very accommodating.

If you like the Alan Parson Project proper, check out Freudiana. The APP album that wasn't.

Enjoyed the show, thanks SheilaB! Have a wonderful birthday weekend!
