Howdy, Irene and all!

Hey WR, Julie P, Gina and bigplanetnoise! Happy BowieBarrettDenny birthday.
Avatar 7:08pm Julie P.:

Irene - is there cake? ;)
Avatar 7:08pm northguineahills:

Bowie's Blackstar is a rare example of an amazing late last album. (Leonard Cohen's "You Want it Darker" also comes to mind).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:11pm Julie:

lazarus is streaming this weekend too, watching it right after the show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Julie:

I never get tired of this album
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Irene Trudel:

Oops, I heard cake and forgot to post the first song. But you all knew it was Bowie's Blackstar. :D Julie, thanks for mentioning Lazarus. Peter and I watched it last night. It's available on dice.fm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm WR:

me too, watching Lazarus tonight.
Avatar 7:15pm northguineahills:

Sandy!
  7:17pm Dean:

Images of Syd Barrett always make him like somebody else: a Replacement, Jeff Beck, Sylvain Sylvain, an amalgamation of Faces...
  7:17pm Dean:

^look like
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:18pm Julie:

interesting, he always looks like Syd to me
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm Irene Trudel:

I'll say, Lazarus didn't entirely work for me. But Michael C. Hall was amazing. The songs were great in that context.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Irene Trudel:

Dean, Syd was a man of many faces.
  7:21pm Dean:

Julie: I learned today of a piece of so-called classical music by a French composer living in Germany, Fabrice Bollon. It's called Your Voice Out of the Lamb for Recorders, Keyboards, Cello and Orchestra, based in some vague way on TLLDOB. I catch a whiff of the "original" in one or two of the movements.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:21pm Julie:

yeah the story is ???? But the music and Michael (and Sophie too) fantastic
  7:21pm Dean:

Oops, wasn't explicit: the Bollon is based on the work of Genesis.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm doctorjazz:

Hi Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Julie:

ha Dean that's awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:24pm WR:

dean, all here knew what TLLDOB you were referring to, with the clue if "Lamb" in the title of the Bollon piece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Julie:

Syd was a year older than Sandy. That I didn't expect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm doctorjazz:

Denny has such a voice, gets right to you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm Irene Trudel:

Welcome doctorjazz! Julie, both Sandy and Syd were tragic in different ways. But both had the the same birthday
  7:28pm Dean:

To my knowledge, I first heard Fairport Convention c. '78, a copy of Fairport Chronicles checked out from the public library, prompted I think by a friend who was into them and Steeleye Span.

I loved how Sandy Denny was inclined on moment's notice to break into gospel.
Avatar 7:28pm Julie P.:

Oops, the robot is playing tricks again!
  7:29pm Dean:

(Stream broke in there for a few seconds.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:31pm Gina Bacon:

I had issues too, Irene!
Avatar 7:32pm northguineahills:

@Irene: My computer froze at the same time!

@Dean: I didn't hear Fairport until 2000, when I picked up Unhalfbricking after reading an article about them....
  7:33pm Dean:

Bowie gone five years?! And Jimmy LaFave gone going on four. I really wish WFMU would devote more time to LaFave.
  7:34pm Dean:

Maybe Pink Floyd had not Latinate pretensions? Astronomy Do Mine?
Avatar 7:34pm northguineahills:

(I even did a drum & bass remix of Matty Groves that March).
  7:36pm Dean:

First Bowie album I heard beginning to end was also c/o a library, in this case the high school's. It was Space Odyssey.
  7:38pm Dean:

Odyssey. Man, am I not focused this evening. Like Lamb, you all know what I meant.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:43pm Irene Trudel:

I discovered Bowie first, with Space Oddity, Fairport 1st on A&M Records came next, then Pink Floyd/Barrett pretty much at the same time, which was the early 70s. Their music all holds up well for me to this day.
Avatar 7:45pm northguineahills:

I picked up Space Oddity randomly in '94 in HS. Little did I know, my record player wire came unhinged, and I never heard the stereo version until I got new turntables a few years later.
  7:49pm Dean:

Of the three, Bowie is the transcendent one. His work needn't "hold up" because while I never got into it--I have precisely two Bowie records, Stage and David Live--I always recognized his massive talent. I've had to cultivate over the years my love for Fairport and Sandy, albeit with little trouble. Pink Floyd, on the other hand... To my ear their best work is Meddle and a relatively unknown document about lunar eclipse. I attribute this in part to having seen the movie from Pompeii, which bored the daylights out of me, if you'll pardon the expression.
  7:51pm Linda Lee:

so glad to hear you tonight, Irene! what a beautiful show. thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Irene Trudel:

Oh that's so funny, northguineahills! A lot of the records I bought early I didn't hear in stereo because my parents only had a "hi-fi" with a large single no-name speaker. It was placed in a corner of our living room, which had a high ceiling and gave it a big sound, so i didn't really know what I was missing until I could afford to buy my own my senior year of HS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks so much, Linda!
Avatar 7:58pm northguineahills:

In a Sailor's Life, I always wondered how someone's father w/ enough money to buy/build a Queen's ship would allow his daughter to be in a relationship w/ a sailor. This takes place in Victorian Britain after all....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:58pm Julie:

Sometime in the mid 80s I found the Barrett/Madcap two record set, and I hadn't heard the Barrett Pink Floyd. When I found out the connection I assumed he was long dead because I'd never heard of him and there were no records from him after that.
  8:01pm wayne:

great show, Irene! Three of my favorites! Thanks for bringing it to us.
Avatar 8:02pm northguineahills:

Well, this show will be easy, every track already pre-clicky-starred....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:04pm doctorjazz:

I discovered then fairly late too. I knew of Fairport, but didn't get into them until the 80s, when I fell in love with Richard and Kinda Thompson, and worked backwards the Fairport. Bowie was always around, but in High School I was more into Grateful Dead, The Band, Dylan, Bowie was so Glam... Sort of back tracked to him through Lou Reed/Velvet Underground. And Dark Side of the Moon was ubiquitous when of came out, spent many hazy hours in friend's basements with it on. But I still really haven't really gotten into them. And think I can live without Roger Waters...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm doctorjazz:

(but that's past the Barrett time, which I missed)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:07pm Gina Bacon:

I love this one. Really enjoying this, Irene!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm coelacanth∅:

good evening Irene, and all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks wayne! Hi coelacanth! doctorjazz, I really loved early Pink Floyd. Stuck with them up through Wish You Were Here, but I think they became a different band which was not appealing to me at all. I hated The Wall and pretty much haven't looked back since.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:10pm doctorjazz:

The Barrett is really nice, someone else to catch up with...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Julie:

I feel like Floyd is several different bands
  8:12pm Dean:

I had to sell The Wall, which accounts in part for my distaste for it. However, unlike other records I had to sell--Boston, Queen, Bob Seger, etc.--I've never come around to The Wall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm coelacanth∅:

Irene i like animals too. i called pink floyd my favorite band at the time (not because of animals, but including it)
when the wall came out i completely wrote them off off and, as you did, never looked back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Julie:

I STILL can't get into Animals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm Julie:

Fotheringay is such a fantastic record
  8:18pm Linda Lee:

my gosh what a beautiful show. again! thank you! :-)
Avatar 8:18pm northguineahills:

I lent my Fotheringay to a friend, and never got it back.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm coelacanth∅:

animals is far from their best, but there's substance there. the songs linger too long - though not to nearly as boring an end as with the wall. they should've come up with 2 more different songs and trimmed the 3 they had.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:19pm Irene Trudel:

Animals is where I felt Pink Floyd turned. Not my fave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Uncle Michael:

Hello.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm coelacanth∅:

aladdin sane is probably still my favorite Bowie album
  8:23pm Listening Out There:

Just got here! Hello....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm coelacanth∅:

hey Uncle M
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm doctorjazz:

Hi, UM!
  8:24pm Linda Lee:

it's really no surprise Bowie went to Berlin, is it. he was looking for Brecht! :-)
  8:24pm Listening Out There:

It’s the UM. Ooh, royalty....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm coelacanth∅:

(i don't know how much it matters but time hasn't entered the playlist)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:26pm Uncle Michael:

I'm not royalty. I'm the court fool.
  8:26pm Linda Lee:

imagine .. we could just get on a plane & go just about anywhere, anytime..
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm Julie:

we are all fools just some of us have the hat
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm Uncle Michael:

That's some bad hat, Harry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:29pm coelacanth∅:

(i figured you wanted to keep the playlist pattern)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm coelacanth∅:

sometimes i wear the jester hat with bells on it, sometimes the one one without.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm Julie:

yes sometimes you don't want them to hear you coming
  8:37pm Dean:

Rick effing Wakeman
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Uncle Michael:

sans cape?
  8:40pm Dean:

For Bowie he was wearing boxers and a Sonics t-shirt.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm Uncle Michael:

So he came straight from bed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:48pm Uncle Michael:

Ooh, soundtrack music!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm doctorjazz:

Bennett heard this Bowie/Metheny, very cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm Gina Bacon:

I love this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm doctorjazz:

*never heard this Bowie/Metheny...
  8:52pm Dean:

Bowie never sleeps.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Irene Trudel:

Yeah, Uncle Michael. For some reason I've been thinking about that Bowie/Metheny tune late this week.
  8:53pm Dean:

Er, Rick never sleeps.

Barrett sounds so much like Alan Hull, or vice versa. I've mentioned this before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Uncle Michael:

Doc, it was recorded for the soundtrack to The Falcon and the Snowman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:57pm doctorjazz:

It's a killer track, UM
As of this version of a who Knows Where The a time Goes".
Great show, thanks, Irene! Have a nice rest of weekend all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:58pm Gina Bacon:

Thanks, Irene! This was so nice.
Avatar 8:59pm prguitar:

Hi Irene, been listening since you arrived this evening.. glad to hear your voice. What a sweet birthday tribute show! Bittersweet in many ways, though of course we're lucky to have all of this musical inspiration that Sandy, Syd and David left for us. Started my day listening to Unhalfbricking... a most welcome comfort. 💙💙
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm Irene Trudel:

Thanks for listening in and indulging me for this BowieBarrettDenny BirthdaynParty. I'll be back in my usual slot on Monday at noon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:59pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Irene
tchau
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm doctorjazz:

Charlie Haden Liberation Music Orchestra did record that tune on a great album,, know that version...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:00pm WR:

thank you Irene, laters all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Uncle Michael:

Charlie's daughter Petra recorded This Is Not America for her "Goes to the Movies" album.
Avatar 9:01pm Julie P.:

Nice musical soundscape for a Saturday evening, Irene! Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm Uncle Michael:

Thank you, Irene.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:02pm doctorjazz:

I have that Petra album, also know it.
Too complete trying this all up, Petra same Space Oddity as the encore with Bill Frisekl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:01pm Summer and Michael and Sylvia:

Only getting to hear this now on the archive, Irene, but absolutely wonderful! x
