A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

hey h’lo
always awesome Delta 5
and yes Herb Alpert too
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/19/17 9:35am Stevel:

Listened to a lot of Herb Alpert as a kid. Dad was a trumpet player, so we shared that interest. Also, Tijuana Taxi was a kid pleaser! Saw him at the Arlington Park (IL) race track, which I suppose was my first concert.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 10/19/17 9:35am steveo:

I think they're sort of sweetish.

Skreety Polittee vs. Skritty Politty. Discuss.

(I, with no evidence, have supported the second pronunciation.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 10/19/17 9:37am annie:

true story: the first album i ever bought with my own money was "A Taste of Honey".... i was 15-ish
Avatar Thu. 10/19/17 9:38am Hughie Considine:

In Italian and Spanish, the vowel sounds are consistent -- i is pronounced 'ee' thus the 'proper' pronunciation, Trouble's, is to say the former.
Avatar Thu. 10/19/17 9:40am kwhitehead:

Ha, I knew we would here some Delta 5! I love those early singles and they are so much better than the LP. Not sure what happened there.

@Kevlicki - it was in Fort Lauderdale. Some place that's had a dozen names. It's "Revolution Live!" now. One of S Fla's most durable live music places. Saw Trombone Shorty & Dumpstafunk there a couple weeks ago. Either Trombone Shorty was louder than when I saw the Melvins there, or my ears have gotten old.
