"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

Good question, Ike. Given the fact I have hundreds of CDs, you'd think I'd have a decent answer but I can't think of one. There may be many cuts that are bonus tracks that I didn't realize that was what they were. I usually just popped the CD in the tray and didn't follow along with the liner notes/listing

@Canterbury - that's a very good question. I wouldn't recommend exploring this avenue of Miles Davis. He does a really really hard to handle cover of Cindy Lauper's Time After Time.

John's story made me want to get back to NYC really soon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 4/12/19 10:58am Canterbury wood-elf:

@tim I did make the mistake of checking out his last studio work - a disastrous hip-hop collaboration (could have been great, but he ended up working with a really sub-standard MC/producer). Avoid if you've not heard it. I think I'll just leave it at 'Agartha' when Miles wisely chose to put down the horn.
  Fri. 4/12/19 10:58am Curious Tom:

I can't tell if this is a track or a broken CD.

Scott Williams should change his theme to Curious Tom's comment. "I cant tell if this is a track or a broken CD. You can't"

There are likely to be several "Wait, that can't be right" moments on Bryce's show alone, immediately following this one.

Can vouch for "Baroo", I own it and it sounds just like that

Aha! I was leaning that direction, Kat. Mainly because the format is LP not because I have stellar ears.

@tim Carl Stone is a tape chopper-upper from way back, although he does it digitally now. I attended a talk he gave in Chicago recently, and "Baroo" was apparently sourced from a university collection of African music that he was given access to.
