Hello everyone, Jeff that is so cool that your Dad is a guest on your show tonight!

Evenin' DJ JC. Humid, eh? FF cools me down..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:05pm Adamsworth:

It's humid in Philly too, yesterday the National Weather Service said 100% chance of rain...but today it was 50% and didn't rain really, there was just points where humidity hit 100% and rained from the air.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:06pm Adamsworth:

I actually think weird weather like that is fun to walk around in, but then it was just hot and gross afterwards...ugh.
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:07pm Jeff Conklin:

Evening all. Looks like rain for sure.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:07pm opurt:

Good afternoon/evening!

Oh what I want to know, what's with that Casio
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:11pm Adamsworth:

I like in the Shakey book how Neil keeps saying like "Stephen Stills is a funky guy, he's got a lot of soul".
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:13pm MONEYBAG$:

When I saw Neil Young last week he kept introducing his guitars "this came from Steven Stills", it was a running joke
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:16pm TDK60:

Do Stills and Young get along?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:16pm Jeff Conklin:

Stills was not on the Bird Song fwiw

Hello - Listened to WKCR thinking it was the end of Gaylord's show and missed the beginning of yours. Why am I having such an issue with live listening???
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:18pm MONEYBAG$:

he was there, in his own way. Jimi too
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:18pm MONEYBAG$:

Jim Morrison was not allowed per Jerry
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:18pm Jeff Conklin:

@Lucky: Funny, Gaylord played a Indian Classical sounding thing and WKCR does that Sunday Evenings....
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:19pm Agent Peter:

Correct. But his appeerance was the most memorable part of those shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:20pm Jeff Conklin:

Incorrect, the Bird Song, Esau and West LA are far more memorable...

I only saw The Gratefuls twice: 1978 and around the same time as the above Meadowland show: Spring '83, in WV.
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:22pm mark Flynn:

Always had respect for The Dead and had a revaluation Dead style in an enhanced state listening to a legitimate live recording from 1972 in 1975 on an uninterrupted broadcast at 2am on WBCN in Boston in 1975. It was a singular revaluation. Until hearing this track tonight I’ve had respect but this guitar playing is on par with the Allman Brothers. I’m going to follow up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:23pm Adamsworth:

@TDK60 I like the style of calling them The Gratefuls, I think I'll start doing that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:23pm Jeff Conklin:

New to the show Mark? If so, welcome, I love to help people reach the Dead...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:23pm TDK60:

Massachusetts is "an enhanced state"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:23pm Adamsworth:

This Ulrich Rois song is amazing! MV vibes..
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:24pm Lucky:

Again, I'm starting to wonder why the 80's are so maligned. That was a jam for sure.
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:25pm MONEYBAG$:

MA has been legally enhanced for a few weeks now
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:25pm Jeff Conklin:

People have a hard time with Brent's keys/tone sometimes. Took me a while to acclimate myself but once it clicks....
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:26pm MoeLarryAndJesus:

Speaking of MV, no one should sleep on the 2cd live Wet Tuna set that's probably close to sold out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:27pm Adamsworth:

The Great Wet Wonder one? I got it from them when I saw them live...so good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:27pm TDK60:

Adamsworth: Just to be cantankerous, I do the same with the Stones -I call 'em The Rollings.
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:28pm mark Flynn:

How do I find the Ulrich Rios track. I’m googling with no hits.
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:28pm MoeLarryAndJesus:

Yeah, that one. Very different from the LP, too.
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:29pm Agent Peter:

@Jeff
No problem at all with Brett. Keith had kind of run his course and imo Brett's arrival freshened things up. I think he gets a bad rap when there was stuff going on that had nothing to do with him. Excellent musician who added a lot to the band's history.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:29pm Adamsworth:

@TDK60, ha ha I will also steal that from you. Though with the Rollings, I usually pronounce them like a Bosnian friend of mine did, she would put the emphasis on "the ROLLingstones"
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:29pm MoeLarryAndJesus:

oooh, new Starbirthed that's not out yet, if I remember correctly. I'm on their list. Gotta pick up the new batch.
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:31pm mark Flynn:

TDK60 I was a 90 guy. 45 per side. My enhanced state wasn’t site specific, but despite living in NYC for 18 years I still think Massachusetts is an enhanced State.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 7/22/18 10:34pm chresti:

evening- no rain here, just fire.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:34pm Adamsworth:

I love how Starbirthed includes small crystals or incense with their tapes...such a cool style.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:35pm TDK60:

Mark: Mass. is a fine state. // I usually *have* made more 90 min. mix tapes. But one can tire the listener out if it gets tedious w/too much info. Doing 60s is more concise but tricky too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:35pm Jeff Conklin:

@Agent: Well put.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:36pm Adamsworth:

I was into 90 minute tapes, until I figured out they were more likely to break...
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:36pm Humam:

Jeff, why are you such a jerk to your listeners on the comment board? Annoying, man.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:37pm Jeff Conklin:

No jerkiness here. Just opinions, lots of them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:37pm Adamsworth:

whaaat, Jeff is nice as hell. At worst, charmingly curmudgeonly
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:39pm TDK60:

I think 60s are a bit more hi-fi. But I'm not a real audiophile. // Adamsworth: interesting @ Starbirthed. '80s Nebraska new wave dream pop band For Against put a shaft of wheat in their debut LP cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:39pm Jeff Conklin:

@chresti: Northern California? Hope you and yours are safe/ok

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:41pm Adamsworth:

Ha ha Caroliner was always putting random trash in the albums, it was also a good style. Amazing band.
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:43pm MoeLarryAndJesus:

Razors and needles and so forth, I know. But do you know how hard it is to clean peanut shell debris off a record so you can play it?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:43pm TDK60:

You talking about Caroliner Rainbow?
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:44pm MoeLarryAndJesus:

Yes
  Sun. 7/22/18 10:45pm MoeLarryAndJesus:

Their first LP was packaged in unused boxes from the Chrome Box set.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:45pm TDK60:

Oh yeah, saw them in a warehouse in Pittsburgh around '91. The combo if colorful stage set and music was like some very very very arcane dream. Strange.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 10:46pm TDK60:

But, For Against were polite Nebraskans and put the wheat in between the outside see-thru plastic bag and cardboard cover.

A mycorrhiza (from Greek μύκης mýkēs, "fungus", and ῥίζα rhiza, "root"; pl. mycorrhizae, mycorrhiza or mycorrhizas) is a symbiotic association between a fungus and the roots of a vascular host plant

I just snagged a copy of that Geoff Bartley record for $2 on Discogs. No cover, but still.

1st time I’ve listened since Dave. Very impressive. I’ll be a Sunday regular.

@Moe: Based on that one tune?

@Mark: Glad to have you, Mark.

Yeah, Jeff. For 2 bucks it's hard to go wrong.

@Moe: I played the wrong track. Couple good cute, John Martyn cover too
  Sun. 7/22/18 11:30pm MoeLarryAndJesus:

BTW, does FMU have a copy of a Michael Hurley record called Live In Edinburgh? I can't figure out if it really exists.
Avatar Sun. 7/22/18 11:31pm Franco Twinkie:

Half heard in my distracted state - Kendra Smith. Can't verify anything..but, on her cd from awhile back she does two songs about the rain. Is it raining somewhere? Not in L.A.!!! Saw her last Christmas with her old band. She was magnificent!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 11:32pm Jeff Conklin:

Dunno, about that Hurley LP. If I remember next week I'll take a look...
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 11:32pm opurt:

Late to commenting on this..The Ulrich Rois track *is* a Kendra Smith cover.

This Dave Evans is nice - an almost Jansch like sweetness. I'm gonna crash though. Thanks for the music. I'll pick up where I left off tomorrow. Bummer about the Can, but nice that you went with reality.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 11:35pm opurt:

The last time I saw Kendra Smith was at Terrastock II - hard to believe that was 20 years ago...seems like yesterday....
Avatar Sun. 7/22/18 11:38pm Franco Twinkie:

Saw her at McCabes sometime in the 90's. She was quite talkative. That's why I know about how she lives.
  Sun. 7/22/18 11:40pm MoeLarryAndJesus:

I thought she showed up on a Dream Syndicate reunion recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 11:40pm mb:

Psyched to hear that "Bird Song" in the archives. I'm going to assume you are an expert birder' DJ JC.

That's where I saw her. It was like seen a unicorn.

  Sun. 7/22/18 11:42pm mary:

fahey on the radio!
  Sun. 7/22/18 11:43pm MoeLarryAndJesus:

No, the Dream Syndicate thing was just 2 years ago or so.
  Swag For Life Member Sun. 7/22/18 11:43pm opurt:

She was very talkative at the T2 show, seemed to be partly out of nervousness....but it was just an incredible set. There are a few decent recordings of that show out there (but I would never make a request here ;-) )

FWIW, I appreciate Jeff’s snark. You can’t work retail—let alone sell records—without having that honed.

Since us West Coasters are going to miss the Espers shows it only seems right that we get to mention the upcoming Träd, Gräs & Stenar shows (SF, Big Sur and LA and possibly more that I ignored)
