Brit psych is soooo, I dunno, like British breakfast cereal - familiar and peculiar at the same time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:18pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m surprised that Steve Winwood never got the moniker Little Stevie Winwood considering he started his career super young as well and he went by Stevie in his younger years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:18pm doctorjazz:

Donut remember them being covered much, guess I missed the covers,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:19pm doctorjazz:

Don't...that is...
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:20pm coelacanth∅:

none of these versions are familiar so far, but i knew several songs by their covers before i'd ever heard of traffic
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:21pm Franco Twinkie:

Doc, for a minute I thought Donut was an English band I missed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:21pm doctorjazz:

Haha!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:22pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Doctorjazz: I think "donut" is an excellent substitute for "don't." I often use "otter" in place of "ought to." As in, "You otter change the radio station back to WFMU."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:23pm Wendy del Formaggio:

I would totally buy a Vyvyan Heavy Concept Album. Very metal!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:23pm doctorjazz:

In think Winwood did get called Little Stevie some early on. But, there was a famous little Stevie (Wonder) out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:26pm Funky16Corners:

@FRanco - There was a UK popsike band called the Crocheted Donut Ring
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:26pm Funky16Corners:

@Doc - I think you're right. He was 14 when he started out
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:27pm coelacanth∅:

at one point in my childhood there were 5 versions of feelin' alright in the house, between my older brother and myself.
(3 dog night; rare earth; grand funk railroad; Joe Cocker; traffic)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:27pm doctorjazz:

And this song Feelin Alright, is one of the best written 2 chord songs ever!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:28pm Jeff Ash:

Many fine covers of "Feelin' Alright" to choose from, including that Lou Rawls version.
  Wed. 5/22/19 10:28pm rw:

Iggy Pop should cover that song, Feelin' Alright.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:28pm Funky16Corners:

It probably kept Dave Mason financially secure for a long time
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:28pm doctorjazz:

Buttermilk Bottom??!???
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:29pm Franco Twinkie:

Stevie Winwood and Rebop Kwaku Baah were going to team up with Arthur Lee and Jimi Hendrix, but then Hendrix went did something else...oh yeah, he died.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:29pm Funky16Corners:

Yes indeed!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:30pm coelacanth∅:

and though generally speaking Mason wrote a small minority of my favorite traffic songs, he did write feelin' alright - and another of my faves: house for everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:30pm doctorjazz:

Yeah, Franco, he screwed Miles Davis too.
  Wed. 5/22/19 10:31pm rw:

This playlist may go down in history as the one with the coolest band names. It'll be in the running at least.

(Always loved this song, Medicated Goo).
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:32pm coelacanth∅:

  Wed. 5/22/19 10:39pm Dean:

Wow, what an overdue theme. Traffic really deserves a lot more love than they typically receive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:39pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Dean!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:40pm doctorjazz:

We're pretty much in the earliest Traffic stuff. Have to admit, once Winwood went solo, didn't pay much attention (Low Spark was the last, not counting Blind Faith).
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:40pm Franco Twinkie:

I can honestly say I despise traffic, but love Traffic.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:40pm Erica:

Hi Dean! Neat hearing later Woody Herman stuff.

Tonight we got up to Low Spark
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:41pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - His Cadet and later Fantasy albums are really cool
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:42pm doctorjazz:

All those 45s and Lps, I'm drooling (messing up my phone).
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:44pm Franco Twinkie:

Woody Herman was not afraid of putting on a paisley scarf.
  Wed. 5/22/19 10:45pm Dean:

Alan Broadbent joined Herman's crowd around this time. I *love* Broadbent as pianist and composer. Once hired his trio to play a celebration at the public library where I worked. It was amazing.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

i once mentioned to another drummer stream radio host who said he never got into traffic and had never been tempted to that i thought he'd like some of it (as if i'd know)
i wonder if someone of more authority than myself might convince him to check into it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:45pm Funky16Corners:

Woody was exceedingly hip, and kept a hot band
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:46pm Parq:

"Moves of Vegetable Centuries" is my new favorite album title of the week. And digging the Woody -- still searching for relevance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:46pm Funky16Corners:

@C - I wonder what the sticking point was? Not digging the jazz stuff? Or the psychedelic stuff?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Parq! Isn't that cool?

Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:49pm coelacanth∅:

Larry i don't want to reveal who! and if i reason out why i thought he'd like it i might, so...
but maybe it was just a bad taste from all the commercial stuff that came later, and the earlier stuff that maybe got played on classic rock stations? (did it? i don't know)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:49pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Nice to see you here, Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:50pm Funky16Corners:

@C - If he/she was close to my age, they probably caught a LOT of Traffic on the radio as a kid. I loved it. Some folks might have gotten sick of it.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:50pm Parq:

I'm sure Woody and his arrangers were inspired by the BS&T version. In fairness, I also think of that as the definitive version.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 10:51pm coelacanth∅:

haha Thanks Franco but i can say this person is miles beyond me in certain realms
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - This is a really good album. Featuring Mick Taylor and a couple of the guys from the Average White Band
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:51pm doctorjazz:

I've said this before, but I always disliked Mann, but hearing him often on FMU, I've gotten to really like him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:52pm Funky16Corners:

@Parq - Woody sdid a bunch of other cool things around the same time, including a cover of Sly Stone's 'Sex Machine'
  Wed. 5/22/19 10:52pm rw:

The video for Traffic's Paper Sun is pretty great. They're just sort of hanging out and looking around at a museum. And singing a little every once in a while.

Supersession?

@doctorjazz: Springsteen hated Mann for what he did to "Blinded by the Light"...

"Thank you Blood and Sweat. Sorry to hear about Tears." (Anyone get the reference?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:02pm doctorjazz:

(Got carried away with the BST Monk quote, Well You Needn't. I didn't know Monk's music when I first Grady the BST album, so it went past me them).
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:02pm Franco Twinkie:

Oh he can sing. That's obvious. It was his demeanor, presentation and just general grating Davidness! Can Buddy Rich play the drums? What a question! But..
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:03pm Erica:

Or was it "Sorry about Tears."
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:04pm Dean:

2 bs&t songs Parq...it's already on the table!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:09pm Parq:

We "studied" John Barleycorn in high school English class -- a poetry section that included Dylan, Crosby and others. The search for relevance indeed.

Herbie, not Manfred. Oops...

Yeah, I really dig this version
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:15pm still b/p:

The things ya loin. I noticed the Lou Rawls album was named for his cover of the song that gave BS&T one of their biggest hits, so I was looking up who wrote it, and not only did I learn that but also who else covered You Made Me So Very Happy. One of the more unexpected names on that list: Bobbie Gentry!
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:15pm Dean:

And then there's Winwood's work with Stomu Yamashta,which is lovely.

In my mind I always associate this song with the Manson murders which is unfortunate, but the album was in heavy rotation when all that shit happened.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:25pm Erica:

Which song? "Can't Find My Way Home"?
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:26pm Franco Twinkie:

Yes.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:27pm coelacanth∅:

can't find my way home was revelatory when i first heard it (which was several years after the manson murders)

I was wondering if they'd have the fires tho go for the guitar break. They did, but didn't quite get there inn it, methinks.

Larry are you gonna play Buddy Holly's cover of well all right?!

I was 6 going on 7 when the Manson murders happened. I don't think I had any idea about any of it until I was in high school and Helter Skelter came out
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:31pm Franco Twinkie:

Doc, I agree. Good sense should have told them during the playback that they should scratch the guitar break.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:31pm Funky16Corners:

@C - No, not tonight
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:33pm Franco Twinkie:

People in L.A. were totally wigged out that summer.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

You never know, C. You never know...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - It really put a chill over the country but must have been especially, specifically weird in LA
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:36pm doctorjazz:

I laughed, Coel...though it would have been a cool change up.
Loved the I Barritas, and Mcllwaine had nice pipes.
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:37pm Dean:

I clearly remember (ha, clearly!) seeing the LAT headlines on August 9, 1969, at a restaurant in -- was it Malibu? -- with my parents. Ten years later a bunch of us drove to Cielo Drive to view the outskirts of the scene.

I was born exactly between the Manson Family murders and Woodstock. I've always said that describes the family i came from.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:43pm Erica:

Haha Granny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:43pm Funky16Corners:

@Dean - I can only imagine what the vibe must have been before they knew who had done the killings. The rumors must have been crazy, and then it all turned out much weirder than anyone could have imagined

Quintessential late-night FM free-form radio cut.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:45pm Funky16Corners:

Indeed. As late night as late night ever got
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:45pm Erica:

Hey Ash better late than never.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:47pm doctorjazz:

Pretty cool version,b don't know them except the name
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:47pm Jeff Ash:

This is right in my wheelhouse. It was about this time of night -- not quite deep in the night, but you could see it and feel it from there -- that we'd hear this on the local FM free-form radio of the time, the early '70s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

They are HUGE in the foundation of the 'jam band' thing. One of those bands that doesn't poke their heads up into the mainstream too much but has a really big, devoted underground audience. I have a buddy that owns a record store down in DC who went to college with them and was around for their earliest days
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:49pm doctorjazz:

Yup, Jeff, rememberit as well.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:49pm Franco Twinkie:

I love this! This is the difference between been a young person and a decreped old person. One night when I worked in Hollywood after putting in a 12 hour day, my boss and I got totally ripped on super grass and went to the Roxy to see Wide Spread Panic, even though we had to be back on stage at 6am. It would kill me today. That is if I had a job to go to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:49pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - We're lucky to have been around when commercial radio played things like this,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:50pm Little Danny:

Awesome and heady show Larry. Thanks a bunch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

@Franco - I feel that feeling all the time. Remembering the days where I'd be out all Friday night, go to work Saturday morning, take a disco nap and then head back out for more fun on Saturday night. I think if I tried that these days I'de be dead halfway through
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Danny!
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:52pm Dean:

I have no doubt that they got airplay on KPFK's Thursday Lunch show (which aired Friday nights) featuring jam bands.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:52pm Jeff Ash:

Amen, Larry. That late-night free-form FM radio was so influential. My constant companion, and one that opened my eyes and ears to so much.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:52pm Franco Twinkie:

Said boss went out with Patricia Krenwinkle in high school.

Thanks Larry! I'm fading fast...
  Wed. 5/22/19 11:53pm rw:

I'm headed to the other room to catch the remainder. Thank you F16C for another entertaining, enlightening and informative two hours of music and conversation! Take care everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:53pm Funky16Corners:

@Jeff - College radio carried on the experimental feel, but in the punk realm. Not much in the way of dreamy/head music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:53pm Funky16Corners:

Nite Chresti! rw!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:54pm Funky16Corners:

I'll be back for more of this. Nytol!

Thanks, Larry, great fun!

thanks, Larry, sweet dreams, everyone…
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:55pm Funky16Corners:

Nite Granny!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:55pm Jeff Ash:

Yes, absolutely. Never had a college radio station to listen to, but had a local, listener-sponsored indie station much like WFMU.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:56pm Jeff Ash:

In any case, great show! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:56pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Jeff!

Thanks Larry!
Excellent!
nighty night folks
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:58pm still b/p:

Low Spark, Barleycorn and Can't Find My Way are absolutely distinct recall prompts for 70s FM listening.
Thanks for the mix of other takes on 'em!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 11:59pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks C! Thanks SBP!
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 11:59pm Erica:

What a show. Until next week guys!
