Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:03pm Funky16Corners:

Still have my original copy, purchased at Pier PLatters in Hoboken, NJ!

Nice. Love the flip, too.

Cannot go wrong with Husker Du
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:05pm hyde:

probably bought mine at Main St Records in Northhampton
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:05pm hyde:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:06pm Funky16Corners:

I love Northampton!

(Tom's Tracks, Providence, RI, most likely)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:10pm Funky16Corners:

It's weird, I probably have something like 7-8,000 records down here, LPs and 45s, and the ones that I can definitely assign point of purchase to are things I bought new in the 80s
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:18pm hyde:

holy crap, Zen Arcade and Double Nickels on cassette is an *awesome* birthday present

- hi Larry and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:19pm Funky16Corners:

Hey C!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 10:23pm coelacanth∅:

i never didn't listen to hüsker dü, but it's been >30 years since i listened to it as much as i have in the past week - and i've enjoyed that side effect of the sad departing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:24pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, lots of amazing music there to savor
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:25pm hyde:

@coel yep, that's often the way
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:26pm Funky16Corners:

I never got to see Husker Du, though I once stoof on line behind Bob Mould to get into the bathroom at Maxwells
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:26pm Funky16Corners:

And that was tonight's brush with greatness
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 10:27pm coelacanth∅:

haha!

cheers{clink}
...i never went to maxwells that much. maybe 10-20X. i went to the dirt club a lot; and patrix and the court tavern in new brunswick.
i saw the hüskers at city gardens though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:32pm Funky16Corners:

Went to all of those spots except for Dirt (I have no idea why not). Loved City Gardens back in the day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 10:35pm coelacanth∅:

city gardens was great but pretty far for me. we/i only went there for the bigger ones...and hüsker dü, who wasn't big yet but my friend was friends with them.
(we all went to the diner after the show...touché!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:35pm Funky16Corners:

Now THAT is a brush with greatness!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 10:38pm coelacanth∅:

patrix was pretty crazy right! so many punk bands and mostly friendly, but wild moshing...then it just stopped.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:38pm Funky16Corners:

It was in a house in the middle of New Brunswick!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

i barely remember the outside. i don't think it's there any more.
it did seem like a house inside though, now that you mention it. 2 rooms on the first floor, bathrooms upstairs.
- it got so crowded that sometimes coming downstairs the thing to do was jump over the railing onto the dance floor. some lovely lady once landing right in front of me and we started dancing!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:43pm hyde:

love this record
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 10:44pm coelacanth∅:

- really liking this set
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 10:44pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks, guys. I love early Mott

Good evening, Larry and sonic true believers!

Hey Doug!
  Wed. 9/20/17 11:09pm Dean:

Dang. Missed the Moby Grape.

As it happens, a box of 8 Hot Tuna LPs remastered (very well) to CD arrived yesterday, and I've just learned that the first HT album was recorded in a space two blocks from my abode.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:09pm Funky16Corners:

Very cool! I like me a bit of HT now and again
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:11pm coelacanth∅:

hey Doug!

...i need to explore the sir douglas quintet some. i don't know that song that mott covered, and i'm not sure i know anything of theirs beyond the first album or 2.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:12pm Funky16Corners:

Mendocino, where that song originated is a killer. They moved from Tribe to Mercury after those early 45s like She's About a Mover. Lots of it is available in reissue
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

i'm very fond of the first ht album. (entitled"hot tuna", but reissued with a different title, apparently)
  Wed. 9/20/17 11:20pm Dean:

I'm certainly growing fond of it.

The venue, formerly New Orleans House, is now an auto repair shop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:20pm coelacanth∅:

i'll check out mendocino. thanks!

...Syd Barrett took those ideas from the i ching. (you probably knew that)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

I remember going to see Jorma back when he had a punk band called White Gland. Most of the audience was hardcore, overall wearing HT fans, with the shouts of 'Fuckin' A Jorma'. He played some HT stuff but the punk band was weird
  Wed. 9/20/17 11:23pm Dean:

Jorma punk?! Pat Smear has a thing or two to teach him. But then vice versa, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:23pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, he had two or three punkish bands for a while there. Not very good if memory serves
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:28pm coelacanth∅:

i have to relocate. it might take a while to prime and kick-start the other computer.
- be right back. don't play anything while i'm gone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:30pm Funky16Corners:

Radio silence commences...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:30pm Funky16Corners:

Shhhhh...don't anybody say anything...
  Wed. 9/20/17 11:32pm Dean:

Booger!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:32pm Funky16Corners:

Sorry about that, something weird just happened
  Wed. 9/20/17 11:33pm Dean:

Other than "Booger!," you mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:34pm Funky16Corners:

Yes, the odd truncation of Coconut Grove, but I'm down with BOOGER per Dr John Caravella
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

cool - you started playing music again right as i logged on!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

I meant to do that! TA DA!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

See how I planted that landing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:39pm coelacanth∅:

pretty expert i'll say. you're ready for the dj olympics then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:39pm Funky16Corners:

Short events only. I need to set aside plenty of time for beer and records
  Wed. 9/20/17 11:41pm Dean:

Where I live, beer and records are called a biathlon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:41pm Funky16Corners:

I will bring home all of the medals, then
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:46pm northguineahills:

I got here for the last 15 mins I get to hear Circus Maximus!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

I saved something tasty for dessert!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:53pm coelacanth∅:

haha isn't this like 18 minutes long?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:54pm Funky16Corners:

Less than 6
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:54pm Funky16Corners:

There might be a long live version
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:54pm coelacanth∅:

(...oh, or maybe i'm thinking of by the time i get to phoenix)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/20/17 11:55pm coelacanth∅:

(live version)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 9/20/17 11:55pm Funky16Corners:

Could be. Unroll your sleeping bags, we're going all night! (not really, I gotta get some sleep)
  Wed. 9/20/17 11:56pm Dean:

Almost played this IH tune last night.

By the time I get to the end of By the Time I Get to Phoenix.
