The Blue Note? Have you become a jazz fan, Shelia?

My favorite Todd Haynes is Velvet Goldmine. I can watch it over and over again. He understands glitter. That’s why he must be perfect for the VU.

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:35pm Miss G:

michael z, thanks for saying that. Some people I know don't care for "Velvet Goldmine" but I love it. I often play their versions of songs like "TV Eye." Sacrilege, I know! And tim, yes, I have all Douglas Sirk's films in my library!

As long as we're talking Tacoma (a VERY rare occurrence, even in the PNW!) allow me to give a shout out for Jankuland on 6th Ave., my very favorite new record store, which opened against the odds during the quarantine. Small and classy and delivering the goods in a BIG way. You MUST check them out when you go to see Habibi in Tacoma!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:42pm Miss G:

Sheila B, I really feel like I went to a gig hearing your description, thank you! It will be a little minute before I can go out so it's very thrilling to hear about folks who do! (I wish I could see Creek and Kills live as I so loved their recent work but. . .one day!)
  3:43pm WM:

@Miss G: I'm not a fan of romance films, but All That Heaven Allows by Douglas Sirk is the best romance movie I know. Even Rock Hudson is not too bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:43pm karlward:

Handy: I picked up a bunch of Free Radicals, which I'm pretty sure is jazz and rock at the same time! (Free Radicals are one of Houston's greatest bands! I got to play a few shows with the incredible Nick Cooper from Sprawl/Free Radicals many years ago, a real life highlight)

Loved Tod Haynes' VELVET UNDERGROUND doc... it is really a portrait of a moment in time in NYC- the avant garde, Jonas Mekas and experimental filmmaking community that Warhol circled in... The film it works very hard to show the multiple facets of Lou Reed, who is such a difficult subject to capture vs John Cale, who I really adore and who participates in the film. Anyway. Make sure it is LOUD when you watch it... the sound design is special.

Dear Tim, what an interesting order. It’s clever to straddle. That way you don’t have to make a choice. I think I would straddle the first album and Loaded though. The third album is perfect but New Age, Sweet Jane and Nuthin’ are so good, and the first album of only for Heroin’s transgression and that incredible bass line of John’s in the vamp out on Waiting for the Man. The great thing is that VU fanatics can have these discussions and change their minds depending on their mood.

I've only seen Squeeze in the wild twice. If I find a copy for under $30 I'll pick it up.

Moe’s GRL-GRP ep was my gateway drug to her solo stuff
  5:37pm michael z:

John Cale produced all those early Nico records. The first one with Lou. And Squeeze has a couple of great songs. That was a thankless task for Doug Yule, picking up the pieces.

@Tim Yeah I don't think it's ever been officially released in North America...
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:38pm tim from washington:

@michael - It's definitely a fluid process. That order was different for me 20 years ago and will probalby be different 10 years from now. ;)
  5:40pm michael z:

Was there much talk of Tom Wilson in the documentary Sheila. He fascinates me. To produce Bob Dylan, the Mothers of Invention, The Velvet Underground and Cecil Taylor and Simon and Garfunkel. The greatest unsung hero of the sixties. Plus he ran the Young Republicans club at Harvard??????
  5:40pm dano59:

Vanessa - I like what I’ve heard from both, I have probably one release each
  5:40pm Joey:

Hey Sheila!! Hey friends!!! Sorry im late!!

how about stylistics
  5:42pm Tom from Stirling:

Oh boy, a SheilaB special. Oh boy.
  5:42pm dano59:

Not all Antony, Jackie Shane, Esquerita et al?
  5:43pm dano59:

For years and years I thought the Stylistics were women
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Vanessa Tara:

sheila: the stylistics, the moments, the delfonics, black ivory, blue magic, george mccrae, the checkmates, the chi-lites, little anthony, the jive five, the desires, donnie elbert

@djsheilab: I'm honored. (Gees, this song!)
  5:47pm Jocelyn:

When my Mother was dying i kept playing all of her favorites. She looked up at me and said you know I’m really enjoying this but I always panic a bit because I never know which play will be the last time I ever hear it! I don’t want it to end.
  5:47pm ShelbyG:

I call these feelings *heart squeeze* moments. I feel a bittersweet physical sensation - the music just grabs ahold of my heart & squeezes. It’s an “oof” moment. Tears. Goosebumps. Music holds my heart & I trust her.

There is a void coming… No one briefed them with authority enough… made them dunn fuck up… maybe I’ll never get the job i was made due for… homeless or gargoyle with clipped wings and a curfew. Double deco for me. Pole sit it was a thing. Austin kist its clock and New York highlighted its. So be It .
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:50pm pgalub:

The musical chills, the physiological reactions to music are not to be underestimated, are definitely to be marveled ay, but they can also, many times, be explained. For example, "Dear Someone"- my guess is that it's the iv minor chord that is eliciting the reaction.
  5:51pm Jett:

@ShelbyG Listening to Sheila is a heavenly experience. I don't think she realizes just how brilliant she is. Hope things are fine by you.
  5:51pm ShelbyG:

Jocelyn: ♥️♥️♥️
  5:53pm ShelbyG:

Hangin in, Jett. Hope you’re well ♥️
  5:53pm Jett:

An all falsetto guy show by @DjSheilaB could be quite an awesome experience. I could come up with a massive list myself. My best to my favorite pampered cat, Alvy Singer.

I do my best to meet you on Fridays, here. You are incredible!
  5:55pm Jocelyn:

Yeah, she really fought. She wasn’t ready to go. She had survived so much, Holocaust, poverty, so many things she was really offended that she had cancer. All of that to end up with this?
  5:55pm Jett:

No females, next week???
