I've gotta take this zoom meeting call, if they even call...
I am tuned in though. Good afternoon, everybody :)

Hey Danny!
Avatar 3:05pm Erica:

Hi Testifiers as always.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Funky16Corners:

I'm always shocked that JWH is 1967. It seems like there should be a huge gulf between Highway 61 and JWH
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:06pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Erica!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm dutchtheo:

Hey Larry!, testifiers! beautiful Jackson C. Frank song
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Theo! Yes, one of my faves.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm Brian in UK:

Hello Larry & fans of Testify.

Jackson Frank?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Brian! Yes, S&G covering Jackson C Frank
  3:11pm Moog1 Radio:

Time for some "Afternoon Spray"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:11pm Brian in UK:

Holding out for some Dan Fogelberg probably in vain.
Avatar 3:12pm Erica:

Appropriate song for this month.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12pm Brian in UK:

Time moved fast in the mid Sixties.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:13pm Rick from SC:

Howdy all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:14pm Little Danny:

I remember those forsythia blooms of the early PA spring.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15pm Candy-O'67:

Hey Larry and all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Rick! Candy-O!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Funky16Corners:

@Danny - We have a huge forsythia bush in our side yard. It's a beautiful thing to behold
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Moog1! I missed your entry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm Funky16Corners:

@Brian - I'm pretty sure Paul Simon crossed paths with Jackson Frank in the UK on his famous trip to the island
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm Little Danny:

I think I've seen this album before but this is the first time hearing it, I think. Bob Lind's voice sounds great at this point.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Little Danny:

Also this reminds me of "Now I Taste the Tears."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Funky16Corners:

This is such a great album, a genuine lost classic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Michael 98145:

Whoa. Bob Lind ...
Avatar 3:26pm Sem:

What Michael said.
Hi, Larry, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Funky16Corners:

Lots of great songs on this record and really interesting musicians, too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:26pm Funky16Corners:

hey Sem!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:28pm Little Danny:

Oh I love this Luiz Henrique track!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Funky16Corners:

This is another great album. Sivuca is all over it, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:29pm Funky16Corners:

I'm a little shocked Henrique isn't better known. He got around in the 60s. I just picked up a Noel Harrison album that he contributes to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:32pm Michael 98145:

Ah. This song is such a classic.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:33pm Funky16Corners:

Yes indeed, and an unusual version as well
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37pm Funky16Corners:

I was surprise to see that aside from the title track, this album was recorded in LA, with Shawn Phillips on sitar
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Michael 98145:

I do admit to liking nearly all Doors tracks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:39pm Brian in UK:

Where did my copy of Waiting For... go to. Some delightful songs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Funky16Corners:

Lots to like in the later Doors albums that doesn't get played much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40pm Michael 98145:

cancel culture
😊
Avatar 3:41pm Sem:

My, my, my. What a sweet treat this is.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41pm Funky16Corners:

If you haven't heard it, Michael, go back and check out my Doors show, in which I attempt to resuscitate the unfairly expired corpse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Funky16Corners:

@Sem - I've been appreciating a lot of Leonard Cohen covers of late
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Rick from SC:

I also like that Door cut. Will have to check out the show.
Avatar 3:43pm Erica:

Don't mention cancel culture Michael. Haha.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm Funky16Corners:

wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Michael 98145:

I like to cause a ruckus.

Will definitely seek that Doors show!
Avatar 3:44pm Erica:

It's bad enough they took away one of my favorite Loony Tunes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm Michael 98145:

And i had a REAL spud!
Avatar 3:45pm Erica:

So long Pepe Le Pew. 😢
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45pm Michael 98145:

Gawd, Nilsson was so great.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:46pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, that voice. It's heaven.
Avatar 3:46pm Erica:

But I'm getting off topic. I did enjoy that Doors show myself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:47pm Michael 98145:

I'm watching finches tear the blossoms off our cherry tree ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Funky16Corners:

I have to put out some seed for the birds. We get a lot of finches.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49pm Funky16Corners:

I can't believe this album is more than 20 years old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Michael 98145:

Keep your feeders and hands clean
Avatar 3:52pm Vincent The Soul Chef:

I'm back... this move is going o be expensive! Looking at about $6000 to start! WOW!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52pm Michael 98145:

I can't believe we are 21 yrs into this miserable century
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Funky16Corners:

@Vincent - Wow! But it's a long haul from Baltimore to TX. Fortunately it's not a frequent expense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:53pm Funky16Corners:

@Michael - I feel you, 1,000%
Avatar 3:55pm Vincent The Soul Chef:

Indeed... and both estimates I got are from reputable A+ rated companies, Larry... and yeah, 21 years in is pretty sobering, Michael.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Little Danny:

Where in Texas, Vincent?
Avatar 3:56pm Vincent The Soul Chef:

Arlington, Danny...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm Michael 98145:

Was going to ask the same.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm Michael 98145:

I learned a lot about Marfa last week
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Michael 98145:

and i've witnessed some IMPRESSIVE lightning storms in Dallas
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Little Danny:

@Michael: It's a singular place for sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm Funky16Corners:

Have you ever seen the Marfa lights, Danny?
Avatar 4:06pm Erica:

Sorry. Had connection problems.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm Little Danny:

I have not. Nor have I sought them out. You have drive out of town to get a good view of the open horizons (where they're spotted).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Funky16Corners:

We have nothing like that around here, unless you count spotting Springsteen in local bars.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

oooh, digging this already. hi, Larry and folx!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Granny!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Little Danny:

Granny! I saw some photos of your incredible home recently. (At least I think it was your home; the subject came up earlier this week during one the Sheena shows.)
Avatar 4:15pm Erica:

Hi Granny! The weather is nice today. And so is the music.
Avatar 4:16pm Jeff Ash:

Greetings from Wisconsin. Late to the party today.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Jeff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - We seem to be in that part of the year where you have to leave the house wearing a jacket, but end up leaving it in the car later on. It warmed up nicely.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Michael 98145:

( been hearing the Lonnie Smith / Iggy Pop collab: www.nytimes.com... )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Brian in UK:

Is this from Sea Change?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Funky16Corners:

@Brian - This was originally on Mutations
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Funky16Corners:

@Michael - I want to pick that up
Avatar 4:21pm Erica:

I had that same problem on Tuesday Larry, except I carried my jacket with me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Little Danny:

Beautiful Wes-style chords, love this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Funky16Corners:

The guitarist was the producer, Doug Munro. Really good
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Little Danny:

Thanks Larry, new name to me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Michael 98145:

( Iggy and Lonnie on Joe McG : www.wfmu.org... )
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm Funky16Corners:

Me too!
Avatar 4:26pm Erica:

I knew that intro sounded familiar. It's a Madonna cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Funky16Corners:

It is indeed!
Avatar 4:26pm Vincent The Soul Chef:

Yeah, my mind was blown just a little bit there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Funky16Corners:

Believe it or not, I found this via The Far Side. Miles and I were watching an old Far Side animated TV special and I was digging the music, which was by Bill Frisell. I started reading up on him and found out about this album, on which he does some pop covers but also some classical stuff, so I grabbed it. I love this cover (and you know I'm not much of a Madonna fan).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm WR:

late to start listening,

thanks for the Iggy / Lonnie Smith links @4:17 @Michael 98145
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm Funky16Corners:

Hey WR!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Little Danny:

I believe Gary Larson is/was an amateur jazz guitarist. The Frisell connection would make sense.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:31pm Funky16Corners:

I did not know that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:32pm Funky16Corners:

If you get the chance, check out the special on Youtube. Very dark, and very true to Larson's vibe
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33pm doctorjazz:

Frisell is one of those rare musicians who changed the way his instrument is played.
(There's a cool documentary on him)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm Funky16Corners:

I'll look for that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Brian in UK:

Like the vibe, Larry. (vibe is not a word I use overly)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Brian!
Avatar 4:37pm Sem:

Did I hear the word "vibe?"
Avatar 4:38pm Sem:

Hello, Brian. Sunny days there? Garlic up?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Funky16Corners:

Hey maaannnnnnn...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Funky16Corners:

This album def has a "vibe"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Little Danny:

Yes it does!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Brian in UK:

Sem, What ho! Garlic is capricious here, some looks strong others poor.
We planted some taters on Tuesday planning to plant the rest yesterday and opened the curtains to see snow on the ground. An hour later it was all gone making me wonder if I had imagined it. Rotavator has fired up to make digging easier.
Painting nearly done, will be charging admission fee soon to visit!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Funky16Corners:

@Danny - I'm glad I got it when I did (prob 20 years ago) because it has become shockingly expensive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Funky16Corners:

Also, MMMMMMM GARLIC.
Avatar 4:44pm Erica:

🤤
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Brian in UK:

Garlic & Olive Oil is a marriage made in heaven, if you believe in that sort of thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm Little Danny:

Indeed, Larry, you were well ahead of its vogue. Funny how record collecting trends go. Wonderful album either way.
Avatar 4:45pm Vincent The Soul Chef:

I do, Brian... I like ginger too...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm Funky16Corners:

I was a frequent contributor to the old Soulstrut board, where I first learned of Pete Jolly, among other sample-heavy records
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Funky16Corners:

Garlic sizzling in hot olive oil is one of my favorite smells.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47pm Brian in UK:

Vincent, I referring to heaven. Ginger is the darndest thing. The smell is tantilising. As a word it also has many meanings.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49pm Brian in UK:

Garlic pounded with Maldon salt and olive oil added to make a dressing then dip you finger in it.. Glad I have eaten already.
Avatar 4:49pm Sem:

Can't have too much garlic, I grow a few hundred.
It's a barter item.

Brian: you going to be on the National Register?
Avatar 4:50pm Vincent The Soul Chef:

My new favourite drink is vegetable broth with fresh minced garlic and ginger... not only does it taste good, but it's good for me. I still haven't caught a cold of any type in close to two years...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Funky16Corners:

I made a Thai curry last night with galangal in it. The small when the galangal mixed with the other spices in the pan was something else...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:50pm Funky16Corners:

SMELL
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

I think I've never heard a version of Satie I didn't enjoy. And this David Shire is enchanting!
Just made enchiladas with lots of cumin. mmmm
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Little Danny:

@Sem: where are you located (if you don't mind)? We just started our own amateur garlic bulb planting efforts six weeks or so ago here in Texas.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm Funky16Corners:

This is a great soundtrack. Kind of hard to come by, but a friend sent me a CD.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Funky16Corners:

Thanks Doc!
Avatar 4:52pm Sem:

Geez, love a cooking show w/ killer vine.

Thanks, Larry the G. Next time.

Wow that was fast. Thanks Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm Brian in UK:

Male some Laksa last night, was hotter than I imagined. A meal in a bowl.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54pm Michael 98145:

Thank you again. This has been quite something.
Avatar 4:55pm Vincent The Soul Chef:

Thanks for the mellow vibe...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:55pm dreamyandseedy:

forgot to comment earlier, enjoyed the show! lovely to revisit the 13th floor elevators track. also loved live to tell
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:56pm Michael 98145:

furniture music? perhaps but the melody calls
