I will never forget the first time I heard this song in Hoboken, NJ off of a cassette. I never dreamed that someday I would have the Together single. #humblebrag

Wonder if Jennifer's Friends rubbed shoulders with the Astral Weeks era Van? Same producer/era

Van helped with backing vocals

Nez ever gone on record about those productions?

This is what we call "straw hat metal"

Wow this is a great song. I got here late because no one told me the player doesn't work in Foreifox browser. All good in Chrome, tho.

Maybe Liza has some insights?

I commend you for sounds like keeping a straight face with some of these group names and song titles, Andrew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 6:48pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks so much, Glynis! My year's of attempting to say all these producer/arranger/writer names has served me well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 6:48pm cometothesunshine:

This single is produced by Jimmy Webb - but not written by him
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 6:51pm cometothesunshine:

This Jimmy Curtiss 45 didn't fit on our Hobbits spotlight
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 6:53pm cometothesunshine:

I was lucky to find so many great 45's in the past few weeks for this show.
  Mon. 1/8/18 6:55pm Jay S.:

It's amazing that there's still so many great discoveries after all these years
Avatar Mon. 1/8/18 6:55pm mce1965:

I haven't been able to comment but this is one great run of singles you've been playing
  Mon. 1/8/18 6:55pm Javier from Argentina:

Some great songs here from Artists I didn't even know existed! Wow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 6:55pm cometothesunshine:

I agree, Jay!

Lovely to hear this single mix of Jackie De
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 6:57pm cometothesunshine:

I must admit, I was unaware of the romantic relationship between Jackie De & Jack N. - and their songwriting inspiration
  Mon. 1/8/18 6:59pm Pop Argot:

Nitzsche was peachy.
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:01pm Javier from Argentina:

I have this song in a CD called "The Bluethings story" released on the Collectables label. Atrocious sound quality for the most part. There's also a volume 2 on the same label
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:02pm cometothesunshine:

I did a lot of work on the audio for this episode's material - I hope it is an improvement.
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:02pm Javier from Argentina:

It does sound more punchy.
Avatar Mon. 1/8/18 7:02pm Olivia Greene:

Loving "La Do Da Da"!
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:04pm Javier from Argentina:

This song is really good! Was it released on CD? (Punkin' Doodle)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:04pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, Olivia!

Never heard these before, love it

Ahhh, this is one of my #1 favorite songs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so glad, Jay - I flipped when I first heard the Blue Things - love their music!

Yes, a great one, Glynis
Avatar Mon. 1/8/18 7:16pm glenn:

ahhhhh, hippy noise.
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:18pm Javier from Argentina:

I need to throw my Bluethings Collectables Cds in the garbage and get a copy of your transfers, Andrew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:19pm cometothesunshine:

Unfortunately, there are still some songs on the recent Blow Your Mind CD from Cicadelic that have the intros clipped off - very frustrating
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:21pm cometothesunshine:

I wrote to them, but I am sure most people never noticed or cared.
Avatar Mon. 1/8/18 7:23pm Olivia Greene:

My first experience hearing The Blue Things too. How fortunate I am to hear these so well here now!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:23pm cometothesunshine:

I am glad, Olivia!
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:24pm Javier from Argentina:

The most amazing thing that happened to me was when I noticed in "The Paul Jones Collection Vol. 2" that the last song was missing and replaced with another song that was on Volume 3. I wrote to Cherry Red Records and they've sent me the song in an MP3 file, otherwise unavailable on CD because of their lousy quality control.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:24pm cometothesunshine:

Very little quality these days :(
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:25pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

Andrew have you heard Chris Noels version of Doll House?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:26pm cometothesunshine:

I have not, Glynis
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:27pm Glynis GirlGroupGirl:

I'll send it to you.
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:27pm Javier from Argentina:

"Taxman" rip-off?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:29pm cometothesunshine:

So many songs are based off of the "Taxman" bass riff - also has the vocal verse melody of "Clarksville"
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:30pm Javier from Argentina:

Yes, as someone once said "there are a limited amount of chord combinations available" lol.
Avatar Mon. 1/8/18 7:32pm glenn:

yes and no. there are lots of chords. there are only so many that sound good together.
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:34pm Jay S.:

Bit of a Love vibe here
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:35pm cometothesunshine:

I would say that the Blue Things were one of the most innovative and interesting bands of their era - and coming from Kansas, they are beyond compare for their daring music.
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:36pm Javier from Argentina:

I agree. Time for a 160 minute double cd set of their stuff remastered. I'd buy it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:37pm cometothesunshine:

The Cicadelic Set has so much great stuff - unlikely anything more will ever be done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:38pm cometothesunshine:

Plus, all of the Dot label tracks burned in the Universal fire. So, no hope of a proper Val CD.
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:40pm Javier from Argentina:

It always brings me sadness to learn of "lost mastertapes".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:40pm Uncle Michael:

Better late than never...one Kansas resident to represent!
Avatar    Mon. 1/8/18 7:40pm Richard.Whig:

Is this the right time to mention that our guitarist is from Kansas and, until his recent relocation to San Diego, played in a band that billed themselves as The Blue Things, played all Blue Things material, contained no actual Blue Things members, but got good bookings in Kansas at car shows, high school reunions, etc!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:42pm cometothesunshine:

It took me forever to find the RCA Blue Things album - Rob Santos actually found me a copy when we were both in Tulsa - I bet it only sold in Kansas and thereabouts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:42pm Uncle Michael:

Who's that, Richard?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:42pm cometothesunshine:

Welcome Uncle Michael
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:43pm cometothesunshine:

I wonder why Val's vocal approach totally changed after 1967?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:45pm cometothesunshine:

Some nice Hal Blaine drumming on this single
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:46pm cometothesunshine:

Very Octo-plus - sounds like James Burton dobro too

hal blaine's the drummer on probably 95% of the stuff you play.
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:50pm Javier from Argentina:

This is great. Sounds a bit like "Love minus Zero"
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:51pm cometothesunshine:

The most upbeat sounding track on Grey Life
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 1/8/18 7:54pm cometothesunshine:

These are great songs, too bad there wasn't a second Dot LP
  Mon. 1/8/18 7:55pm Javier from Argentina:
