J. H. sang with the Dead?!
Sat. 12/2/17 9:23am J.D.:
Why have I been thinking about Laura Nyro a lot this week?
Sat. 12/2/17 9:27am WilliamfromDumont:
I wonder if they sell Salty Peppers at the Sugar Shoppe?

Bob, that's Joe Osborn bass.
Sat. 12/2/17 10:15am MikeyinNC:
The Killer's Don't Let Go - outstanding!! The only version I'd ever heard prior was Isaac Hayes' great cover from the late 70's
Sat. 12/2/17 10:17am J.D.:
Sometimes I wonder that, if we didn't label Chuck, Jerry Lee, Richard, etc as "oldie acts" when they were still in their 30s, they might have continued producing great work in the 1960s?
Sat. 12/2/17 10:33am Stevel:
J.D.: Probably so. The "times up" distinction seems to be easing a bit, at least for me, in regards to artists who remain strong performers, which most do.
Sat. 12/2/17 10:37am SmokinJ:
I still treasure my original near mint vinyl copy of "What's Shakin'" Really a gem.
Sat. 12/2/17 10:39am J.D.:
Stevel, there's no doubt all those cats remained great live performers. I feel they might have continued to produce great recordings and, possibly, grown as recording artists if not for the stigma of being "oldies acts"

Morning, Bob & all!
Sat. 12/2/17 10:52am Elvin:
Bob, another great show today. I had never heard Don't Let Go by JLL, just the cover. And that Association song is one of my faves. And now a great tune by Nazz. Thanks so much, you brighten my mood in these dark times.
🎃 Sat. 12/2/17 10:55am duke:
Great show, as always.
Sat. 12/2/17 10:56am J.D.:
Elvin, I second that emotion!
Sat. 12/2/17 12:21pm JoeChrisMorris:
