The mix on this album - esp the live tracks - is a little off.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 12:25pm Parq:

"The Penguin" sounded a little muddy, but that may just be the way it's mixed. Live "Swingin'" sounds fine to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 12:25pm Funky16Corners:

Very treble-y, and the vocal mix is a little weird
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 12:26pm Funky16Corners:

One of the problems with various vinyl sources, esp between 45s and LPs. Wide range of levels and quality.

F16C, that's probably the way it was mixed at the venue, no?

Yes, I think so. This album is a mix of live and studio stuff and there's def a difference

F16C, I think the expression refers to organs of earlier origin, like big church organs or Wurlitzers in the old movie palaces.

Yep, the miracle of the Hammond was that it had no pipes.
Heh. So we gotta get creative.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:08pm Funky16Corners:

I actually have a book on the Hammond in my to-be-read pile. I should dig into it. I never knew the stops were pipe-related.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:10pm Funky16Corners:

Gonna do an all-Hammond show one of these Wednesdays.
Avatar    Wed. 5/2/18 1:12pm βrian:

I guess there are stop analogs that have a similar effect on Hammonds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:17pm Funky16Corners:

It's probably all buttons now on most electronic keyboards. I remember reading an interview years ago with Jimmy Smith where he said that unless you were playing a B3 and the pedals, you weren't really playing the organ.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:17pm JakeGould:

@MaryWing: Hey! Happy running into you at the record fair. Find anything good?

I scored a vinyl version of Devo’s “Freedom of Choice.” Definitely different and better than the CD or MP3 version. Someone was nice enough to put it up on YouTube. www.youtube.com...

Is "cornbread" a euphemism, here? Just curious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:24pm Parq:

As the great Daniel Pinkwater once said, sometimes a corn muffin is just a corn muffin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:24pm Funky16Corners:

Cuz I really like cornbread, but I don't want to get in trouble.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:26pm Funky16Corners:

I guess it depends on who you ask for 'cornbread' and under what circumstances
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:27pm Funky16Corners:

Like if you're wiggling your eyebrows and smirking, you might get smacked
  Wed. 5/2/18 1:27pm rw:

Skimming the comments, yes, I've always understood pulling all the stops as opening up all the pipes on an organ for maximum sound.

And βrian, that cornbread reference had me rethinking a little too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:28pm JakeGould:

I knew a white Jewish girl who grew up in Washington Heights who was nicknamed “Cornbread” by her classmates.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:29pm Funky16Corners:

Why's that?
  Wed. 5/2/18 1:29pm rw:

I had a piece of cornbread go bad sitting covered on the counter the other day. Smelled sour. I think it was fermenting.

Avatar    Wed. 5/2/18 1:30pm βrian:

I'd take cornbread over white bread, any day.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:31pm Parq:

If I may be allowed to muddy the waters further, there used to be a Jewish bakery near where I was living in the mid 80s, where a certain sort of rye bread was called cornbread. I asked why once, and the answer was some obscure story involving a guy named Cohen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:31pm JakeGould:

@Funky16Corners: I guess it was a racially loaded nickname she learned to accept. *shrugs*
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:32pm JakeGould:

@Parq: Cohenbrie?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 5/2/18 1:32pm Funky16Corners:

Corn rye is actually delicious
Avatar    Wed. 5/2/18 1:32pm βrian:

Possibly, it dates back to corn being a general term for grain. Barleycorn, for example.

@Jeff - Yeah, this is old school make out music of the first order.

@ Brian - What's the old joke? "I don't know, I never looked."

That's warmer then FL, Larry. It's 84F/28C here.

It's this crazy NJ weather. You go from needing a heavy coat to needing shorts, and then back again in the space of a few days.

I hope it sticks. I want to shed my sweatshirt for a few months.

A little spring would be nice, though.

Speaking of Sly Stone and medleys, Merry Clayton does a good medley of SFS tunes on her "Emotion" LP from 1980.

I'll have to look for that!

Thanks Larry! You're the beginning and the end of the stream today. Hope to catch the second edition later this evening!

Agree completely--Sly & the Family Stone broke down so many barriers--racial, gender (a FEMALE trumpet player!!), Larry Graham invented that style of bass, Sly was a genius any way you cut it. Love Love LOVE them. The big box of their Fillmore sets that came out a couple years ago was a real treat, too!

Catch you tonight! Thanks!

Thanks Mark! RW! Jeff! See you all later on!
