Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1969! ;-)

And we're OFF! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:01pm Linda Lee:

this Zeppelin sounds amazing! :-D

I thought I'd start big and loud ;-) Hello, lovely Linda! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:02pm Linda Lee:

hi hi hi! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:03pm Jan Turkenburg:

Great start Georgy. I will listen a bit and quietly sneak out somewhere this hour ;)
  Fri. 9/6/19 4:04pm Dave in St Albans UK:

This takes me back to my 6th form at secondary school. A nice quiet track hehehe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:04pm Linda Lee:

how does this sound so good?
not my chewed-up copy played on a crappy system, i guess! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:04pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Alright, my lovely - you've earned a very well-deserved rest :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

You my be thinking "It must be all downhill from here!" but no - there are some gems coming up :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:05pm Linda Lee:

gosh, listen to the pipes on Percy!
  Fri. 9/6/19 4:05pm Dave in St Albans UK:

Volume up to 11 everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Back door man? What did he mean?? lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:06pm Linda Lee:

one of those blues tropes the kids just had to guess at.

Hi Linda Lee!
Hi Jan!

Hello to Linda and Jan and Dave and Rich :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:08pm Linda Lee:

hi Rich!
darlin, did you just say Woodstock was '68?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:08pm chresti:

Hi GG and F&F!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hey chresti! :-)
@Linda - don't think I did .... :-S
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:09pm Linda Lee:

am i tripping? :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:09pm Rich in Washington:

I always understood 'back door man' to really refer to a side lover who would exit out the back door when hubby came home. See 'shotgun shack'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's the power of the Flange! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think back door man is rather more ... ahem ... base than that. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:10pm Rich in Washington:

I remember the first tiny, cheap 1940s apartments I lived in had front doors coming into the front room, and a back door out the tiny kitchen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:10pm Linda Lee:

that's a long damn flashback :-D
sorry!
Rich, that's right, but the meaning shifted a bit over time too
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:10pm Rich in Washington:

Right. Of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I did say that 1969 was eclectic ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:12pm Linda Lee:

yes! it really was.
then there was mainstream culture & then counterculture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:12pm Jan Turkenburg:

In Dutch I know this as "we'll be drinking drinking, drinking, untill we're sinking ...."
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:13pm Rich in Washington:

I mean they were built in the 40s. Really tiny. Even the cockroaches were hunchbacked.
My dad helped us move in and he looked around and he said 'I think we lived here briefly in 1958'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:13pm Jan Turkenburg:

talking of obligatory weddings...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:13pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

When of those places where you could lay down in the hall and look at the garden? ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:14pm Rich in Washington:

We call obligatory weddings 'shotgun weddings' here in USAland.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:14pm Jan Turkenburg:

In english it already sounds SO much better
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I can imagine a lot of foot stomping to this :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:15pm Linda Lee:

yes. daddy's got the gun. 'marry her or else.'
i think lots of small apartments were created after the war to help house returning vets. there was a housing shortage in the new york for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:16pm Linda Lee:

in new york.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:17pm Jan Turkenburg:

I was talking about weddings I was obliged to attend as a kid and a teen in FDL :-) The weddings you reffer to we call "moetjes" (musties)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Same in the UK ... the Luftwaffe flattened quite a few housing estates! Did the US have pre-fab housing after the war, too?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I like the term "musties" :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:18pm Linda Lee:

oh yes. that's when prefab developed big time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My paternal grandfather had a bomb shelter in his back garden. Fascinated me. I mean it was basically an underground brick structure, but he kept his wine in it. lol.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:20pm Linda Lee:

there were kit houses before that, especially from Sears, for beginning families to afford, but the market really matured for the vets ~ & of course the GI bill enabled their return too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:20pm Linda Lee:

that's fabulous! a consistent temperature for the wine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:21pm Rich in Washington:

I do know that where I grew up, there were massive shipyards during WW2. My town was famous for its intense production of 'liberty ships', meant to run supplies through German U-Boat blockades and into allied countries.
There was a huge boom of housing construction in formerly rural areas. Some of the houses still stand. After the war here, there was suddenly a glut of houses, as most of the ship building labor moved on to more prosperous areas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There you go ;-) It's like British people on holiday - keep the beer in the hotel bidet ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Di they ever go back to building ships or was that another one of those changing times things? :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:22pm Linda Lee:

the sensible Brits. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is Dave Davies' favourite Kinks' song :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:26pm Rich in Washington:

In Vancouver WA? No. Not at all. I'm not sure what the transition consisted of, but I believe ship building ceased entirely.
Then there was the whole Vanport flood tragedy in Portland across the river. A whole town built originally for WW2 shipbuilders, and in postwar years largely populated by African Americans, was completely washed away. It's only recently being talked about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:26pm Linda Lee:

lots of us here in the states first heard the Who with "Tommy". it really was big.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - that's ... shocking. Just shocking :-(
  Fri. 9/6/19 4:28pm Elizabeth:

This is one of my favorite Kinks songs!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's fabulous, isn't it? It starts off brilliantly and just keeps getting better and better :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:28pm Linda Lee:

this nation has a lot of history that isn't 'talked about'. it's incredible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:29pm Linda Lee:

this one's new to me. it is brilliant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda - I'm so happy I played it!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:33pm Linda Lee:

me too. thank you.
was just thinking of Mr. Dylan. when did he go electric & cause that uproar? was it '66?
it's easy to forget about it now, but the shift to electric instruments in popular music *as the norm* was phenomenal.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I should know the answer to that ... I had the CD up for grabs during the pledge in March! lol
I *think* it was 66 ... just before his motorcycle accident. I may be wrong. Might be 65?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:34pm Linda Lee:

that's the real revolution the Beatles brought on in the states ~ *and* they played their own instruments.
think of the shift between the folk revival & Woodstock. that was just a few years too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:35pm Linda Lee:

things did happen incredibly fast in those 10 years. you're right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I know! It's staggering to me how quickly everything changed from moment to moment in the 60s. Just quantum leap shifts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:36pm Linda Lee:

incredible energy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I do genuinely think that Roy Wood is nothing short of a genius
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:37pm Linda Lee:

this is beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:41pm Linda Lee:

Rod was good in front of a rock band. what the heck happened?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think you answered your own question there ... he was great in a band. Not so much out of one ... :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:43pm Linda Lee:

oh my gosh. this intro gives me chills. what a phenomenal record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's one of the most iconic songs ever. Not just for them .. just ... EVER. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:44pm Linda Lee:

Merry Clayton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:45pm Linda Lee:

that's all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I love her vocals on the "Brewster McCloud" soundtrack. Her version of Lift Every Voice And Sing is just staggering :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:45pm Linda Lee:

must hear her do that. i haven't.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:46pm Linda Lee:

god just listen..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:46pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

The isolated vocals for Gimme Shelter - talk about hair standing up :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:46pm Linda Lee:

oh my god.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:48pm Linda Lee:

there's an interview with Anita Pallenberg about the film 'performance' (filmed in 69) & how it reflected the sense of doom at the end of the decade when it all came down. i think 'gimme shelter' does too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:48pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Absolutely. 1,000%. You can hear the hippie dream evaporating on quite a few songs from that year :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:49pm Linda Lee:

do you know the brilliant quote from Hunter Thompson about the end of the era?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hunter - my hero :-) <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:50pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Fri. 9/6/19 4:52pm Mr Fab:

Hey hey Jungle swingers! To add to what GG was saying:
In 1969 (okay) you had "The Stooges" (speaking of hearing the hippie dream evaporating)
In 1969 you had "Trout Mask Replica"
In 1969 you had this hit my neighborhood (tho i was just a tot):

Oh, I do. :-) My entire journalistic career in the 80s was spent living up to him :-)
i WROTE A SURREAL BAND REVIEW/INTERVIEW AND MY SUB EDITOR SAID "yOU REMIND ME OF THAT aMERICAN BLOKE ... THAT gONZO FELLOW". pROUDEST DAY OF MY WRITING CAREER. ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:52pm Rich in Washington:

Still listening but will be driving home from work and then preparing for my show at 7. Ulp! I don't have a clue what I'll play!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Whoops! Hit the caps key!!
Avatar Fri. 9/6/19 4:52pm Mr Fab:

Supposedly you could hear Hendrix from our street.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:52pm Rich in Washington:

Oh, BONZOS! I'm staying put until this is over <cranks it up>
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:53pm Linda Lee:

fabulous! have to read your work then. :-)
i think we're still hearing Hendrix here near Bethel, Mr F!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Mr Fab- just in time for the house band :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:53pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I got here just in time for BONZOS :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Hopey! The Bonzos are like The Sheena Sirens ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:54pm Linda Lee:

was it on the Dick Cavett show where Iggy said 'we finally killed the 60s'?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:54pm Linda Lee:

baby, bathwater..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I don't know! I hope so :-)
Avatar Fri. 9/6/19 4:55pm Don-O:

Somewhere in the air, I heard The Bonzos and I had to be here. Hey, DJGG!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

lol! Hi Don - you heard the sirens call too ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:56pm Linda Lee:

a man i loved deeply, who helped raise me ~ my uncle ~ introduced me to the Moody Blues then. i liked the cinematic feel..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda - I love that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:59pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

1967 - I clearly went into a coma there. Apologies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 4:59pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Procol Harum started in 1967 I meant
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:01pm Linda Lee:

frankly, i think the Rolling Stones ended as a really vital band that year & became a business concern.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think you're pretty much right there, Linda. After Brian Jones died ... certainly something essential left them, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:05pm Linda Lee:

yes!! even if Brian wasn't doing well personally, he continued contributing amazing vitality to the band. Mick & Kieth just seemed to lose patience ~ at least on the surface. that Keith was allowd to fuck himself up from top to bottom while Brian had to be released on the basis of drug use, shows a basic truth about the band.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:06pm Linda Lee:

& yes, they did lose something essential. probably the heart..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think there was a certain amount of soul selling, definietly. There's a poitn that Marianne Faithfull makes in her autobiography about Mick emerging from that period (jail, Performance, Altamont, Brian, etc) in a "bulletproof and shiny Mick Jagger suit, which was impenetrable"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:06pm Linda Lee:

ergo, they became a business concern.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:07pm Linda Lee:

wow! well written! she would know, of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

She describes watching him evolve on the set of Performance and being helpless to stop it. And then of course she had her own demons to deal with ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I find it very telling that she identifies with Pirate Jenny's song so much. VERY telling.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:09pm Linda Lee:

she couldn't withstand the shift, as Mick's partner & so, yes, her own demons were fed. Anita did withstand the shift (and her demons) more successfully, though probably mainly on the basis of having offered Keith children.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We're covering some ground today! I am loving this conversation :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:11pm Linda Lee:

Anita also took Mick as a lover during the filming.. i'm guessing that helped turn him around as well. Anita was a powerful woman, potentially quite destructive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:12pm Linda Lee:

we'd have a good chat in person, GG. :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think that Anita was built more for the times. Definitely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We certainly would :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:13pm Linda Lee:

:-)
i think i've been fascinated with these women for as long as i've been fascinated with the Stones. even moreso, now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Same :-)
I have on my reading list a book called, I think, "Girls Who Wore Black". All about the Beat Women. I'm slowly unearthing history :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

One of my first significant partners dedicated this Al Stewart track to me. lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:16pm Linda Lee:

fabulous. :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:17pm Linda Lee:

read a book called 'how i became hettie jones'? about the white wife of leroi jones (later amiri baraka) & how the personal changes he underwent over time had to separate them. the beginning of their relationship in post-war new york is so beautifully described. the period seems really lovely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There is something about late 40s to mid-ish 50s New York that I find utterly magical, revolutionary, and fascinating.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:19pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My fave Bee Gees songs. It is so beautiful and sad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:19pm Linda Lee:

there's also a beautiful book out there called 'for love of ray', by bonnie bremser, wife of poet ray bremser.
wasn't this from 'odessa'? i still remember my uncle's red velvet copy :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Yep - Odessa. :-) A masterpiece :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:21pm Linda Lee:

a great friend of mine arrived in new york from texas just after the war & i have first hand accounts that tell me it really was all that. she had an absolute ball.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Talk about a moment where one decade ends and another begins! Mr. Jones - your turn in the spotlight ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

MY goodness!!! I would love to know her history!!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:22pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

I have to say that it sucks living in a post Bowie world. sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:23pm Linda Lee:

oh yes. she's left us now, but she was a brilliant reconteur. i was lucky to spend a lot of time with her these last years.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Hopey - I still have moments where I forget ... and then it hits me again. Plus he died about three weeks before my best friend. And then the whole of 2016 and the clusterfuck that it became unfolded :-(
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda - I can imagine how wonderful those moments were :-) <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:24pm Linda Lee:

yes, isn't it wild .. a song about someone entering other realms & refusing to return marks the end of a time when so many went so far.
i'm so sorry, GG.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Wow. Only one more set to go! Less songs but longer ones :-)
Just as a heads' up - the penultimate and final songs of this week's show are VERY long so if you need to put the kettle on, run to the loo, etc ... ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:27pm Linda Lee:

after certain things i've experienced over time, i don't believe anyone who passes on leaves us totally. the changes they inspire in our lives remain part of us, so they also do. we're not without them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Linda - I believe that too <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:30pm Linda Lee:

we needn't be so literal minded :-)
  Fri. 9/6/19 5:30pm CC:

it has been a most excellent show today Georgy Girl...one of my favorite years of all..!..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you, CC! :-) I'm so glad you enjoyed it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:33pm Linda Lee:

the american drug war was *devised* to disrupt the counterculture & i'm sure it was the same in the UK. so suddenly you have 'problems' when another approach might have been followed, with greater benefit for all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:34pm Linda Lee:

we see how well it's all worked out now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:34pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

All the evidence points to that, doesn't it?
You and I need a coffee klatsch online ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:35pm Linda Lee:

When I lived in Bonn in the mid 80s there was a tiny, funky, little coffee shop called "Klatsch"- I always loved that :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:35pm Linda Lee:

cool :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Please do!!!!! I love a good chinwag!!! Especially during the show!! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:36pm Linda Lee:

:-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Please - all of you - don't stop chatting with me! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:37pm Linda Lee:

here's a Donovan track i never heard before!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:38pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Funky Donovan ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:38pm Kat in Chicago:

This one always made me vaguely uncomfortable when I was a kid.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:39pm Kat in Chicago:

(The Donovan one) I think it's pretty groovy now :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:39pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I hear you ... there are a number of Donovan songs from this period which are distinctly ... "sexy". I've never thought of him like that!
Avatar Fri. 9/6/19 5:40pm Martinibomb:

ABFAB wuz here
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:40pm Kat in Chicago:

GG, that's probably just what bothered me. I wanted whimsical Donovan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:40pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - my daughter just gave me a look when I started playing this ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:40pm Linda Lee:

it's that insidious sort of whispering he does ~ like the guy who gets too close physically & murmurs into your ear.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:41pm Kat in Chicago:

That's it, LL. Too intimate!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Donovan is all floaty and elfen and like you say whimsical. Not funky and sexy. lol.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If you need the kettle etc - now's your chance ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:42pm Linda Lee:

right. no.
that was a vocal style some of them liked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:43pm Linda Lee:

'King Crimson loo break' :-D
  Fri. 9/6/19 5:44pm CC:

This boy's voice is certainly missed by me!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:44pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

LOL! "Ladies and Gentleman, there will be a lengthy Flange toilet break courtesy of Mr. King Crimson" ;-)
Avatar Fri. 9/6/19 5:44pm Mr Fab:

H, "in The Court of the Crimson King" the soundtrack to my teen years. While the other guys were into Van Halen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:45pm Linda Lee:

good for you, Mr Fab! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - aka "Man About To Sneeze" ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:46pm Linda Lee:

'man about to sneeze'?
Avatar Fri. 9/6/19 5:46pm Mr Fab:

Ha, LOVED that cover! Fripp still has the original painting hanging on his office wall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:46pm Linda Lee:

oh, him! i remember now.
  Fri. 9/6/19 5:47pm Dave in St Albans UK:

We requested this Crimson track during a music lesson in school instead of the usual classical music. Didn't go down well with our music teacher. After this we never got asked to bring in our album choices again!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Your music teacher didn't like it??? What business did they have being a music teacher, eh? Shocking! ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:48pm Linda Lee:

i remember a day like that in junior high, Dave! i brought 'exile on main street'. not sure what the point was in asking us to bring records..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:48pm Linda Lee:

i think our music teacher was just curious.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

But Georgy, you say, how can you possibly top this track? oh ho ho ... ;-)
Avatar Fri. 9/6/19 5:49pm Mr Fab:

how could Greg Lake leave this?!
  Fri. 9/6/19 5:50pm Dave in St Albans UK:

Our music teacher looked shocked and pained!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:50pm Linda Lee:

that's terrible! :-D
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Don-O is next after me - www.wfmu.org...

Great nostalgia fest DJ Georgy Girl. Look forward to part 2.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:54pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

There are moments like this when I get to play The Beatles on the air and I know that my 13 year old self is smiling :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:55pm Linda Lee:

were you 13 when this came out, GG?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

No no no - just had a really difficult time when I was 13. This is my "it gets better" moment :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Every band in history: we're amazing
The Beatles: hold our beer
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:56pm Linda Lee:

ah. sure. yes.
i did, too. those are hard years normally ~ & some of us really suffer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:57pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

FUCKING HELL THIS TRACK IS INCREDIBLE :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:57pm Rich in Washington:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:58pm Linda Lee:

honestly. just phenomenal!! fabulous. what a closer!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:58pm Linda Lee:

thank you for bringing these songs back to my ears. heard them anew!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:58pm Hopey Sockmonkey:

It's kind of surprising that they could actually rock out this way.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 9/6/19 5:59pm Linda Lee:

what made them cohesive was still there, musically.. they just couldn't manage it personally.
Avatar Fri. 9/6/19 5:59pm Don-O:

I'm holding my breath to see if my show will happen. www.wfmu.org...
