Leave it to Bob to pull out a charming, low-key deep cut by the Moody Blues, about about whom I usually roll my eyes.
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:23am dan:

I got to see the Moodies (sans Ray). They still put on an amazing show today.
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:24am dan:

Please do a 1st song 1st album theme show Bob.
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:24am 1whoknewcthulhu:

Ah--Spirit! Still love this album.
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:26am dan:

Whatever happened to good musicianship in mainstream music? Bands like Coldplay, Maroon 5 etc.. got nothing on the Moodies and Spirit.
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:27am DeebiefromSoCal:

Laura Nyro!!! Love her voice.
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:28am dan:

For that matter, where are the female singers like Laura Nyro today?
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:33am dan:

RnR HoF are a shitty organization. How can they induct Green Day before Chicago, The Moodies and Steve Miller?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/13/18 9:33am Hughie Considine:

Dan, look around. There are plenty of singers of both sexes doing great work and playing their instruments well.

Swell saturday Bob and gang. sounding goood!

“TC” here = Terry Chambers? Loving this song!!!
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:39am dan:

@ Hughie

But they're not charting in the mainstream. You have to dig through endless YouTube files and Free Form shows to find it. Thank goodness for WFMU.

amazing colin m is making a comeback, nice
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:41am GListener MW:

Ah, Colin Moulding & Terry Chambers — and this is new! Awesome to hear these two collaborating after so long
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:41am dan:

For a song from 1917, it sounds clear cut and digital
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/13/18 9:42am Uncle Michael:

My theory is that Colin and Terry are trying to coax Andy back.

(Just reading this review of the whole EP here: http://xtcbumperbookoffunforboysandgirls.blogspot.ca/2017/11/review-of-great-aspirations-by-tc-i-aka.html?m=1 )

@UncleMichael — Gawd, I’d be over the moon if that happened... one of my all time favorite (and, most-collected) bands
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/13/18 9:45am Uncle Michael:

Notice the lack of guitar on that TC&I track... I think they're saving a spot for him.
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:51am GListener MW:

Very much so — that could be tracked in easily
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:53am GListener MW:

if Andy passes, they could always loop in X’s John Doe and rename the new group “X, TC & I”.
  Sat. 1/13/18 9:54am dan:

First by the piano I thought it was Eric Carmen, than the voice sounded like Cat Stevens at first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 1/13/18 10:03am Uncle Michael:

I'm not suggesting that track needs guitar. I'm suggesting they're demonstrating that their band needs one.
  Sat. 1/13/18 10:20am moe:

just purchased the TC and I cd from Pledge Music... autographed... always like XTC... even the Rundgren produced Skylarking...
  Sat. 1/13/18 10:23am Ross T:

Skylarking is magnificent!

NRBQ. Spirit, Wild Honey Beach Boys, XTC, and lots of amazing things I never knew of...this is the best radio show.
  Sat. 1/13/18 10:25am Ross T:

Not to mention Chris Bell....
