Hi Mom

Hey Joe, digging this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm happymaan:

Honestly, I was expecting more of a New Orleans theme but this is certainly nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:31pm Alvy Singer:

Saw Allen Toussaint at the 2015 NOLA Jazz Fest. As he was playing all his classics, he kept saying to the crowd, "ahh, bet you didn't I wrote that one."
  2:31pm Kevin:

Does A.T have a published memoir?
Avatar 2:32pm Joe B:

new orleans theme? all four of these songs are recorded in new orleans, performed by new orleans musicians. that's pretty new orleans
Avatar 2:33pm Joe B:

@Alvy - I think that every time I am going through his catalogue!
Avatar 2:33pm Joe B:

not sure kevin
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:34pm happymaan:

I certainly mean no offense, I'm just saying this doesn't have that signature bass sound that I normally associate with New Orleans music.
Avatar 2:36pm Joe B:

I don't think he ever worked with the Dixie Cups, which is surprising
Avatar 2:37pm Joe B:

and of course phil spector had first crack at the dixie cups' signature song, chapel of love, first with darlene love, and bailing on it, then including it on the ronettes first album
Avatar 2:38pm Joe B:

and tying all that together, the best Ronnie Spector show I saw was at the Ponderosa Stomp!
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 2:40pm Eric R:

Rosa Lee Hawkins' passing was way overshadowed by Ronnie's but still, one more voice gone
Avatar 2:41pm Joe B:

@Eric - dixie cups always got overshadowed by the bigger girl groups, even now unfortunately
Avatar 👻 2:42pm MOM WHIG:

Eric - hi there
I'm just looking at Ponderosa Stomp w/Ronnie - 2008 - it's all on U-Tune the entire show
Avatar 2:42pm Joe B:

it was incredible. they had a string section and an entire horn section etc
Avatar 2:43pm Joe B:

also on Ronnie - tomorrow afternoon Todd-o-phonic is replaying his 2014 interview with Ronnie
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 2:43pm Eric R:

NBC show today. Nothing But Classics
Avatar 2:44pm Joe B:

probably would have to do a month of Toussaint tribute shows to get all his classics in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:44pm pollypinocle:

Gawd, I love this man.
Avatar 2:44pm Joe B:

I agonized over the six or seven I had to cut to fit in the Ronnie/Dixie Cups songs in
Avatar 2:45pm Joe B:

hey polly! me too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm Alvy Singer:

You lose count at how many artist covered A Certain Girl.
Avatar 2:46pm Joe B:

@alvy - could probably do an entire show of Certain Girl/Fortune Teller covers!
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Eric R:

every band in Britain did them!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Alvy Singer:

Store that idea away Joe. That would be a fun show.
  👻 2:49pm Cacophone Jeff:

Hey MOM WHIG! yes, Joe, playing with Ronnie was a dream come true!
Avatar 👻 Swag For Life Member 3:05pm Eric R:

always a treat to hear the original versions (or at least earlier) of songs I first heard by Brit groups. They must have really pored over these old recordings.
  3:07pm Kevin:

"Over You"- A perfectly crafted song!

agreed Kevin

it's always fun to slag on the Hall of Fame. No room for Irma, had to get James Taylor in there.

"Ruler Of My Heart" is a soul ballad on steroids...gets down to the bone marrow...
