Hey Bob, I think Steve Ferguson appears on Escalator Over The Hill! I know Terry was part of Carla’s band in the ‘70s, but seeing Steve’s name in the credits to EOTH really blew my mind.

If ya like Dr. John's playing and New Orleans piano, checkout the documentary film Bayou Maharajah (2013) featuring James Booker. www.imdb.com...
Avatar 9:39am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Apes - no tails. After 4million+ years, debated if - indeed - we should no longer be laid on the Apes' doorstep either...
adamdoesit: This does one thing a Cover should: make you marvel @ a song's construction via a different angle. Perhaps PaperbackWriter is a jam better suited for a Jazz head tune than others relying on TheBeatles' delivery... I'm thinking a satisfying Comp. of Beatle Jazz could be done!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:41am Marley P. Dogg:

Bob - so sorry for your losses - I hate March too - my dad’s passing was in March
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:42am Rick from SC:

Okay, now I have to crank it up

London Jazz Four...meant to say their -name- is prosaic (not their album). Oy.
Avatar 9:42am StringOFperils:

Whooa!! The Crimson King on a Saturday morning! This show is great.
  9:43am Listener Robert:

You're right about chess. Once you get into SERIOUS playing, it gets to be very taxing and makes it hard for the rest of your life to play less seriously and enjoy it.
Avatar 9:43am Bob Brainen:

Zetti, someone mentioned that Doc, recently. Gonna try to see it. Is it on any platform?
Thanks Marley P. Dogg, my condolences to you too.
  9:44am Jeff:

Sorry for your loss, Bob. The son of two old friends of mine just passed away. Hearing “All This Is That” was just what I needed.
  9:44am prudy:

Bob, thanks for sharing those memories with us...condolences for your losses..
  9:44am ...nothing follows:

I too had a great friend who recently passed away almost the same story but instead of chess it was magic the gathering soundtrack was the same sorry for your loss
Avatar 9:45am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Sincere Condolences Bob.
Maybe Spring makes everything more active - including tragedy. I've been lucky avoiding tragedy I think - but as the years pile on - the losses have begun. :(
Court still seems a rich & flawless album - but I wonder if younger people could understand how startling & sardonic its impact was in the late 1960s - & for me on my brother's turntable in the early 1970s...
  9:46am Listener Robert:

Even playing 5-minute chess gets to be too much. The only way to revive the fun is to play some kind of fairy chess such as Knightmare Chess (Tempete sur L'echequier) that has luck elements and/or that nobody plays enough of to analyze deeply.
Avatar 9:47am Bob Brainen:

Hey Jeff, losing a child, that shouldn't happen to anyone. Glad the song was soothing.
Thank you prudy, ...nothing follows,

Weed/King Crimson and playing Chess. Whoah. Cheers, George.
  9:50am prudy:

Wow..playing chess high as kites...I couldn't play chess sober....
Avatar 9:51am Bob Brainen:

wmfromdumont, yeah crazy combo. Of course weed went with ~everything~ in those days, and we were 17-18-19.
Hey Rich in Bay Ridge, thanks!
  9:51am Listener Robert:

Is "You Only Live Twice" just a rewriting of the lyrics to this?
  9:52am Barbara in PA:

The second album I ever bought. I'd forgotten how sweet-sounding this song is.

It’s going to be alright. baby

This just sounds so great blasting from my speakers.

Playing Chess, as opposed to chess, isn't so taxing!
Avatar 9:54am wmfromdumont:

Yet another tagout that could go on forever.

Listener Robert, too deep to ponder...like Chess!
Barbara in PA, a good choice.

I just said that cuz some 20/25 years ago I heard bob play that and he commented how don Grady was on the cover trying to look all anonymous with his sunglasses on and his collar turned up.
  10:44am Jeff:

Baby, let’s swing
Avatar 10:45am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Nyro just such an amazing confluence of construct & soul. Perfect for just missing the Charts (when not being Covered) - but becoming a Cult idol.
Avatar 10:46am Bob Brainen:

I corrected Nyro song title.
Dang auto-incorrect!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am watchpocket:

(Asked 'cause you said Ruth walked into the studio or some such. Cool headfake there.)
  10:49am Madeline Rhum:

HI Bob, Thank you for another fantastic show full of wonderful music and also full of true heart. My condolences for your losses. How we miss those we loved and that longing to have them back again never really goes away. We hold them dear forever. Thanks also for the King Crimson. It took me back to my childhood in NJ and hearing my big brother play that album over and over again. We are estranged now but I always feel grateful for how he opened my ears to so much good music. Thank you, Bob, for always doing that for your me and your many devoted listeners.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am watchpocket:

I'm of the opinion that auto-correct does more harm than good, but hey that's just me.

  10:59am Kpx:

Here's a little fact blurb, Davy Jones did an episode of Ben Casey before he was a monkee. He played the part of an addicted glue sniffer. Speaking of being a monkey, I don't need the help of autocorrect to make me look like a illiterate one. I do that well enough on my own.
  11:00am (Mr) Bill:

Fabulous show. The Laura Nyro song that was played is "Timer" from "Eli and the Thirteenth Confession," not "Time and Love" from "NY Tendaberry."
