"Centerfold": a song with some of the most American lyrics ever, yes or no?

It must have been a lot of fun to play in Betty Davis' band. Her funk is like hard rock with a lot of swing.

Oh wow, I just saw the documentary about her last week. What a force of funk fierceness!

@Yes She only released three albums, and they are ALL KILLER, no filler. You can't really go wrong wherever you come in, but may as well start with her first record "Betty Davis" from 1973 and work your way forward.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:00pm dday:

You are most welcome. I enjoyed it. Sad to hear of her passing. What a force of nature
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:07pm tim from washington:

@Yes - I agree with the above recommendations for starting with Betty Davis. Her output was slim but each record is massive. Light In The Attic records has re-issued most of her recordings so you can pick up physical or digital copies there.

Yes, jazz and jazz accessories. Also, probably cocaine

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:34pm tim from washington:

Despite John Allen's allegiance to the jazz fanny pack, I think the fanny pack is more of a Blues Hammer Summer Fest vibe.

This Jackie & Roy is what a real cover is about: sticking a song in a different part of the record store.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm McGroovey:

Well, "Quit Dreaming and Get on the Beam" was supposed to be the second Red Noise album, but the band got dropped and lost its recording budget, do he had to finish it in his bedroom and release it himself, basically.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Handy Haversack:

After I sang "Common People" at a rural Michigan roadhouse karaoke event on the Fourth of July to be greeted afterward by stunned silence and one muttered, "Welcome to America," I figured I'd win the crowd back with some classic rock and had a go at Rush's "Limelight."

This did not have the desired effect.

I think the only Kid Rock lyric I know is, "It's Kid Rock!" Nugent I'm a total blank. Iggy probably only in *eastern* MI!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm dday:

When in MI you can' go wrong with a nice Death track (Hackney Bros.)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Scott Williams:

@DJLorraine, yes we like to grind it fresh! We have more than one grinder at the Magic Factory
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:18pm tim from washington:

I think there's still a few people left in MI waiting to kick Iggy's ass. Have K8 help you read the room before you try it, Handy.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:19pm tim from washington:

Whoa! Did Neil Young rip off the beginning of this song on Helpless?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:20pm Gurldoggie:

You may be onto something there Tim...
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:21pm joe mulligan:

@Tim from WA I was thinking the same thing. even so I thought it was a Helpless cover because of the sp0rtify hubub
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm dday:

Helpless came out a year before the Bee Gees track, but Neil is trying to force snotify to remove it ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm McGroovey:

This is my favorite record about Jimmy Carter.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Handy Haversack:

It's my favorite record about god.

Thanks for making me doublecheck Twitter and Wikipedia to make sure nothing happened to Jimmy Carter
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm RB:

Nice banjo 🪕!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm dday:

Can John Ashcroft's single be far behind?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:25pm tim from washington:

@dday - ha! "Hey Spotify. It's me or the BeeGees". Spotify: "Sorry Neil. We'll stick with the BeeGees".
  5:25pm Simone:

Very nice tribute!

@Handy: Here's my favorite song about god: youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm YETI BOB:

Oooh I missed a Jimmy Carter song - and it wasn't "Jimmy Carter Says Yes" ?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:26pm tim from washington:

I know who Scottify would side with in a Neil Young vs BeeGees decision.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:26pm efd:

That Gloria Flanagan song wins the "truth in song-titling" award.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm McGroovey:

What's your favorite record about D®n∆ld Tr$mp?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm YETI BOB:

Just gonna have to wait for the archives I guess!
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:27pm joe mulligan:

I think we're just living a dystopian version of the tribute to jimmy carter 40+ years later
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm YETI BOB:

(Is it wrong to clicky-star a song without hearing it?)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:27pm tim from washington:

I'd like to hear Jimmy Castor Bunch's "Jimmy Carter Meets Bertha Butt".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm dday:

prof. fuzz. It's a scene from the good, the bad & the slimy
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Gurldoggie:

"I don't wanna live inside Jimmy Carter"
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:29pm efd:

Can't believe the B-side isn't a tribute to Walter Mondale.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:29pm Bimbus Bambus:

the Gloria Flanagan is from '77 according to 45cat.com

B-Sides - always wondered what the B-Side was On Ivan O'Martin's (Jmmy Cliff character "Harder They Come.") always wondered what the B-Side was??
In real life, With 45 demos, was there sometimes no B-Side??
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Handy Haversack:

I was making a drink! But I'll drink to Mercury now.

Cheers, muh Scotteers!

Handy: Make sure you don't drop the preposition!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:39pm McGroovey:

This is one of those excellent bad voices.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:39pm dale:

this sounds a bit like arcesia.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm McGroovey:

OK, excellent HORRIBLE voices
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm YETI BOB:

Morph : Didn't realize until just know that Ivanhoe Martin was based on a real character en.wikipedia.org... "The original Rude Boy".

Well hello, Scott. All
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm McGroovey:

But he did kinda hit that high note. Sounds like a guy who used to be a great singer, before the surgery.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm YETI BOB:

(also if you like reggae and movies you gotta watch "Babylon" made in 1980 but only released in USA in 2019 www.imdb.com... SOOOOO GOOD)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm RB:

Wow , a second banjo tune , well knock me over with a feather ….. again . BTW , a 5 string , frailing style , nice
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm YETI BOB:

Jecuso sounds like Will Oldham
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm RB:

It’s impossible to tune a banjo , btw . Little known fact .
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm McGroovey:

@YETI BOB yeah, I had to check the playlist, too.
  5:46pm Morphe':

Yeti - did not know that either about I"R"M...
Teaching Tragedy and showing The Harder They Come .
I would create dead silence at the end until someone could explain Irony in the end of the film between the song there and the scene/visuals .. also "foreshadowing". The students actually liked the literary challenges ... it actually encouraged active engagement with texts and films and tunes..
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Handy Haversack:

K8 made me go check it for BPB.
  5:50pm Morphe':

Yeti - was squatting in London stayedC oncannon Rd off Brixton Rd - late 80s => 89-91???
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm DjLorraine:

Yeti Bob i will watch it only because i know a few people that say “Babylon“ and i always wondered if our definitions were similar. Or maybe it was a sound bite thing to a group's definition.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm DjLorraine:

It may confuse me more
  5:53pm Marie:

beautiful song--great for this time of day--so great that the sun is still out at this time now. Spring is coming!
  5:54pm Morphe':

Dj Lorraine - Sarge Always Plays - Down Here in Babylon -at the end of his Sunday show = confusion and badness and mayhem due to The DownPressers (rascists)

You too, muh Scotteers!

Oh cool, I was actually listening to this album last night
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57pm YETI BOB:

DJLorraine: I think it's a bit of a malleable concept. Close to "mammon". But it's a great film, check it out.
