Congratulations, Adamsworth.

My ex knew this pathological liar who told this whopper about his friend who was the original Mazzy Star singer and they used a computer or something to make Hope Sandoval sound like her. I'm just listening to this story like, Jesus Christ...

That friend was not Kendra Smith

thank you Simon! Also the Hallelujahs is another appropriate band for my freedom mind state!

I've been exploring the Over The Edge Radio collection at The Internet Archive. It turns out that I have some old shows that they don't, so I can't throw out my old cassettes yet.

This is my favorite song on the Yuzo Iwata record...

@MONEYBAGS: I think I was watching the same Youtube video you're not mentioning so I could listen to The Avant Ghetto live tonight.

If there is not a dorky looking guy in his late 40s playing a headless bass, it's not the same video

The Dharma Quintet ♥s late '60s Miles Davis.

That keyboard is straight off In a Silent Way
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 12:34am CDToaster:

I would LOVE to hear a Frank O'Toole mash-up of the previous track ("Den Lille Prins Elmers Favorite Options) with Renaissance's "Prologue." Frank does amazing mash ups. Someone should tell him.
  Mon. 3/26/18 12:38am third eye:

Love this version of The Creator Has a Master Plan! I know it's too early for Dead chat, but just thought I'd say that I finally got around to watching Long Strange Trip. And in the episode I watched today, someone (maybe Phil) talked about finding the world.

Hey Jeff did you get that new reissue of Ned Lagin's Seastones he just put out yet?
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 12:54am Adamsworth:

It's funny, it came with a shrinkwrapped version, which had the cover photo slightly off center, so he got the manufacteror to send empty corrected copies, and I was sent both...

Good Evening, Jeff and everyone!
ahhhhhh Pharoah Sanders, SO perfect right now . . .

Cool, haven't checked out new YLT yet
  Mon. 3/26/18 1:09am MONEYBAG$:

Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 1:11am Adamsworth:

It's cool that the new YLT is called There's A Riot Going On, but it's all mellow jams from what I've heard. It's what we need, also.

ugh I hate when I type symbols and then it cuts my comment off

Was curious what this Juri Camisasca sounded like...mesmerizing...fantastic
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 1:25am CDToaster:

@Jeff: If you have the time, can you tell me whether the "Den Lille Prins" track "Elmers Favorite" came out before or after Renaissance's "Prologue." I know they both came out in 1972 but I'd like to know which came first because they share such a similar hook.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 1:26am Jeff Conklin:

@CDToaster: I have no idea, I hate Renaissance. Sorry

Just finished reading a book titled The Rest Is Noise: Listening To The Twentieth Century by Alex Ross. It's about "classical" music, but Phil Lesh gets a couple of mentions in connection with his pre-Dead studies and work.
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 1:57am CDToaster:

@Jeff: Okay Jeff, perhaps you can say when in '72 the track you played came out? Sometimes it says somewhere on the album. I'm not having luck finding the info on the web.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 1:58am Jeff Conklin:

@CDToast: I honestly don't know. All I know is the year, per Discogs...
  Mon. 3/26/18 2:02am Agent Peter:

It's me Dave
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:04am Adamsworth:

maybe the phone was a robotic call...there are a lot of those these days...they'll just try every number and if someone answers it gets added to the list...very annoying, and a problem that should have been solved at this point.
  Mon. 3/26/18 2:06am Agent Peter:

Jeff's not here
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 2:07am Jeff Conklin:

@Agent: Actually?

No offense to anyone, but I can't deal with phone calls during the show. It breaks my concentration and I can't hear how you really want to hear Thin Lizzy tonight...
  Mon. 3/26/18 2:11am Agent Peter:

It was a metaphysical statement.

I have no requests.
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:13am Adamsworth:

no Dead tonight...
  Mon. 3/26/18 2:13am Eric Hat:

They still calling Jeff?

For those that don't now the idiom, the dictionary definition is "aware and energetic as a result of being busy and challenged:"
  Mon. 3/26/18 2:17am third eye:

I would say aware and energetic even while not feeling busy and challenged, because Avant Ghetto always relaxes me
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:17am Adamsworth:

the definition for what?

I like nature noises in music. My backyard sounds like Bob Brainen's music bed (frogs and more frogs).

Re: Sopranos. There's a scene where Janice is listening to the studio version of Creator Has a Master Plan. Full circle.
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:24am Adamsworth:

Whoa, I had forgotten about that. I have been meaning to rewatch the Sopranos again.
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:25am Mattedpelt:

I gotta rewatch, it's been a while. First time I heard Kinks' Livin on a Thin Line
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:25am Adamsworth:

It's funny how much corny music there is on that show (like that episode that has a Keith sung late period Stones song played repeatedly), and how much great music (Evidently Chickentown, that one Burroughs track)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 2:25am pacific standard simon:

The last place I lived, there was a noisy colony of herons nearby. And back in Kansas, we had cicadas. But frogs are the best.
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:26am Adamsworth:

cicacadas are very good though...
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:26am Mattedpelt:

Y'all ever heard a vixen scream?
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:27am Adamsworth:

no, just the weird barks...
  Mon. 3/26/18 2:28am third eye:

I've heard coyote howling
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:28am Adamsworth:

when I lived in Baltimore though, I'd very rarely see foxes running around when I'd walk around early morning...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 2:29am pacific standard simon:

Hmm, I've never seen the Sopranos. Never had HBO or Showtime. When I had Netflix, I did binge watch Deadwood, RIP Nokie Edwards.
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:29am Mattedpelt:

Oh, yeah me too, while camping in New Hampshire a lot. Pretty creepy. But the vixen scream is something I wouldn't want to hear in person
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:30am Mattedpelt:

Deadwood is best show of all time
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:30am Adamsworth:

I first watched the early Sopranos episodes checked out on VHS from the public library.
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:32am Adamsworth:

it is weird how the 90s still seem like they were 10 years ago instead of 20.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 2:33am pacific standard simon:

We do have coyotes here on the island -- you can hear 'em late at night. Want to be careful when you walk your dog.
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:34am Mattedpelt:

Sopranos started airing '99, Deadwood '04
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:36am Mattedpelt:

This Foreningen track rules, can see the probable influence on Current 93
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 2:40am pacific standard simon:

That there Foreningen Til Livets Beskyttelse was an actual slab of vinyl. Since I broke down and bought a new turntable, I've been enjoying the clicks in my old records in a way that surprises me.
  Mon. 3/26/18 2:45am Eric Hat:

I just dreamt that you announced that las song to be by an artist called ‘Mr. Laptop’ and woke up laughing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 2:46am pacific standard simon:

This version of "Blue Ghost Blues" kills me.

Ever hear a Sasquatch scream? Better than DMT

No, but I heard your mama call my name.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 2:52am Fuzzy:

Loons going off while I lay in a hammock in the pitch black woods freaked me out a bit. Pretty sure it was loons.
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:53am Mattedpelt:

I'm sure it was, and still is, a slab of vinyl. I haven't bought a new turntable in a while, but i still do enjoy playing my old records, clicks or no clicks
  Mon. 3/26/18 2:54am third eye:

That Lightnin' Hopkins was amazing! Thanks for the digitization Jeff...
Avatar Mon. 3/26/18 2:56am Mattedpelt:

Loons are so beautiful. Last time I experienced them I was kayaking and had accidentally put suntan lotion on my forehead, it melted into my eyes, and I missed an incredible loon dance in the middle of the lake due to the excruciating pain I was going through
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 3/26/18 2:57am pacific standard simon:

I went about 10 years without a working record player, gave away 2/3 of my records. Then I won some vinyl during a marathon.
