I've never listened to Ken Booth's Down by the River
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 12:39pm Funky16Corners:

The whole album is worth a listen
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 12:40pm Funky16Corners:

It also includes a fantastic version of 'Is It Because I'm Black'

Webhamster Henry - I think I'll save that for a Van Dyke Parks tribute

I used to make smoothies for my son's breakfast before school-the neighbors downstairs would complain about the very loud blender
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 12:50pm Funky16Corners:

Hi Carmichael!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 12:51pm Funky16Corners:

@Chresti - my younger son loves smoothies, but the ice in the blender scares the shit out of our cats!
  Wed. 12/5/18 12:52pm rw:

FT, mine's 1978 radar too. Not that I care all that much about these things. Love the essay on the back cover. I've got a small pile of Xmas records too. Is it time to pull them out already?

I always play my Xmas music from The Fab Four, a Beatles parody group.

Webhamster- I checked out the Night Owl- he's cute, and I enjoy the Japlish haikus
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 12:54pm Granny Spicy Tuna:

I allow only three Xmas albums in my home; Vince Guaraldi, The Jackson 5, and Karl Blau's "Coconutcracker Suite."
  Wed. 12/5/18 12:54pm rw:

And now it's time for me to go out and do whatever it is that I do. Thanks Larry! I'll be listening from the road. Take care everyone.

i think that's my favorite album of hers.

Yes, as time passes I'm able to rehabilitate Stephane Grappelli in my mind. I've come to appreciate him much more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 1:20pm northguineahills:

When I was in junior high I listened to... top 40 radio in the morning, and maybe Kris Kross, oh, and my Vanilla Ice cd! (seriously, I was clueless back then)
  Wed. 12/5/18 1:21pm Dean:

Yeah, that Sequentia album is medieval vocal music, in many respects the opposite of James Brown, in others not at all dissimilar. The last track, "Plebs Domini," is a mind-blower.

Oh. Yes. Of course. But my guess is that’s changed too
  Wed. 12/5/18 1:26pm Dean:

Oh, man. Tallis Scholars are amazing. They've been doing more recent stuff lately, I believe. Looks like they're doing a traditional Renaissance Christmas program. Palestrina, Byrd, etc.

Here you had so many pop acts pursuing a deliberate kind of psychedlia, from labels to producers on down, while Nancy and Lee fell into it naturally without needing to speak of it. That's the Tao to me :)

@ David - 'Sand' is, in my opinion the greatest example of Hazlewood's 'Cosmic Cowboy' thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 1:59pm Funky16Corners:

Later NGH!

@Webhamster yes, I was thinking of the same. Ma Bell! Love that jam! love the way the disembodied version deals with the time signature changes

Thanks Monica!

Hi Monica! Great fill in last week!

many thx, david_. as is today's tesify! fill-in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:19pm chresti:

@Webhamster- I love the text-to-speech renditions of popular tunes
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 2:19pm david_:

Much agreed. Batting 1000!
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:21pm Mark R:

Man, Nick Drake--what a great loss! What did he do, three albums? All of them great.
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:21pm Johnzon:

just re-watched the nick drake doc. "a skin to few" a couple days ago... really good stuff, includes interviews with his sister friends and musical collaborators and extensive shots of rain dripping and frost forming on his bedroom window
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 2:22pm Franco Twinkie:

Larry, you are making it very difficult to get anything done. I just want to hang out and groove on this cold morning.

These last two sets have been fine accompaniment to some head-down work here. Much appreciated, Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:24pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, Nick Drake is if anything, underrated. Masterful singer, songwriter and a spectacular guitarist. Those three albums are brilliant. I remember hearing 'River Man' for the first time, maybe 35 years ago, like it was yesterday. Makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:25pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - My work is done (even if yours is not) ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:25pm Funky16Corners:

@Sem - Thanks!
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 2:26pm david_:

@Johnzon will have to watch that
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:27pm Funky16Corners:

I haven't seen the doc yet. Is it streaming anywhere?
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:28pm Johnzon:

it's excellent
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 2:28pm david_:

Anyone know if Kenzo's show is happening today?
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:29pm Johnzon:

Also includes recordings of his parents talking and one of his mom's songs and poems
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:29pm Funky16Corners:

@David - I believe Kenzo is back in the saddle today
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:30pm Mark R:

I believe it is, David, based on the daily Give the Drummer email.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 2:30pm david_:

@funky thank you. sweet!

Thanks @Mark R
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:31pm Funky16Corners:

Such a beautiful record
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 2:32pm david_:

And now I want to watch the entirety of Breaking Bad again
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:35pm Mark R:

I think this VU song makes a lovely companion to the Nick Drake. I still like the John Cale version of the band best, but this album is great, too!
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:36pm Mark R:

Oh, lookout! Here comes the vinyl!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:37pm Sem:

Loved this movie, the soundtrack mostly, I guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:37pm Funky16Corners:

It's almost all vinyl. Some is less crackly than others. Love the Cale-era VU but I think that the Velvet Underground album is my fave
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:38pm Funky16Corners:

@Sem - some great, surprising instrumental tracks on this album
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:39pm Parq:

Well, another lunch hour gone to hell, but I'm here for the denouement, anyway.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:40pm Funky16Corners:

Sorry about that...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:40pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:40pm Parq:

I can never tell the difference any more between DJ errors and Java glitches.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:41pm Funky16Corners:

That was a DJ error!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:42pm chresti:

Paint it black feeling
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:43pm Mark R:

This Ray Lamontagne track is gorgeous, also...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:43pm Funky16Corners:

I hardly like anything else by this guy, but I think this record is amazing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:44pm Funky16Corners:

In the headphones, it goes straight through my head meeting up in the middle.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:46pm Funky16Corners:

And a little bit of the local vintage to close things out...
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:47pm Mark R:

I almost never hear Springsteen on any FMU show, ever. It's like a thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:48pm Funky16Corners:

I love early Bruce, but this song especially as it references two places that are withing five minutes of my house.
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 2:48pm Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Larry. You made my holiday task much easier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:48pm βrian:

I had to ask myself who this was. Familiar but it's been so long.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:49pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Franco!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:50pm Parq:

Generally, I'm pretty positive on the first two Springsteen albums, but I'm afraid all the fans he made with everything that started with the third album have pretty much killed it all for me. Even now, hearing this track, I'm expecting some University of Michigan grad in a plaid shirt to burst into my room and holler 'BROOOOOOOSE!"
Avatar Wed. 12/5/18 2:50pm david w:

Brilliant top to bottom. Thanks, Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:51pm chresti:

Thanks Larry! Catch you later..
I thought it was Abbot Costello at first

Back for the end!

....She says to me: Who did Talking To The Detectives?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:52pm chresti:

the Bruce song, that is
  Wed. 12/5/18 2:52pm Johnzon:

no blood on the tracks?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:54pm Sem:

What a yummy fill-in, Larry. Tasty, just sweet enough and satisfying enough to maybe crave a little bit more.
thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:55pm chresti:

Elvis Costello-not Abbot
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:57pm Parq:

As the National Lampoon once said, there really is no Elvis Costello, it's just Bruce in a dumb suit, dopey glasses and a bad mood.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:57pm chresti:

My brain wakes up about 5pm, pst
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:57pm βrian:

My, it's that time already. Thanks, Larry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:57pm chresti:

Haha Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:57pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks for listening! Hopefully we'll all see each other later tonight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/5/18 2:59pm chresti:

You betcha!

Holy crap! I timed that right!
