A sweet n' gentle opener. Thanks Brian in UK!
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 3:16pm Rob Kopp:

What a coincidence to see Karen Dalton's name here. My brother in law has weekly radioprogramme "Dwars door de 60's" in The Netherlands and wednesday he played Karen Dalton! And Mayalta Page, probably because that was my purchase of the year in 2021

Oh Sheila, This is the best song. It's difficult to conceive that Françoise Hardy was once a gawky wallflower, but there it is.

  3:53pm morphe':

The Lyrics for Mat by Elegi have been translated into 1 languages
Well we′re here

We're at the common again
Smoked six of the ten fags that I only bought an hour ago

Said well I I like the look of your shoes

I like the way that your face looks when I′m arguing with you

And so when, when we all grow old
I hope this song will remind you that I'm not half as bad as bad as what
You've been told

And when I knock At one hundred and two

And I see your pyjamas I can′t stop smiling at you
And that′s why when
We're at the common again
I′ve been pouring my heart out Towards your optimistic grin
Said well I, I I like the cut of your jib
I like the way that your face looks
When you're yapping on about him
But on this shirt I found your smell
And I just sat there for ages Contemplating what to do with myself
Called you up
At one hundred and two

We just sat there for ages Talking about that boy what was getting onto you You

I have seen the last two on your list many times, and that WFMU DJs have made me like what I thought I did not, but Jimmy Buffet is too far.

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:15pm nathan:

i always get a little uncomfortable when hating on an artist turns into a meme. sure, i generally wouldnt be happy to sit through an entire phil/willy/jimmy album, but they've all at the very least some fun throwaway pop songs. and they seem like decent people. or maybe they're monsters! you can't make me research it.

Phil stepped out from behind the drums and sang "More Fool Me" at a Genesis concert in NJ years back. The audience was mesmerized. We loved it.

Speaking of female pop greats, I saw Judy Collins last Saturday. It was a really great show. She had fantastic energy and a strong voice. Plus she was pretty hilarious with her stage banter. She told some pretty bawdy Mae West jokes.

@Tom: I was there. 1974 & 75 ;1st Row, Capitol Theater. As for hating on artists that "make it"..Isn't it every musicians dream toil away in absolute obscurity so they can say, "that was fun" and die broke ?
  5:19pm The other mg:

I have always felt that the music of the 1970s (when I was a teenager) was the worst. It lacked the creative explosion of any of the decades that came before, but was more kitchy and banal than what came later.

A non-musical highlight of the show for me was that a woman sitting in front of us passed out hearing aid batteries to her companions. Not pills or a joint. Hearing aid batteries. That made my night.

Laini Mataka aka Wanda Robinson
Born and raised in Baltimore, she remains a local educator to young local poets in the Washington DC area.
Wanda Robinson recorded two spoken-word albums:
1971 - Black Ivory (made Billboard`s Black Album chart, reaching #29)
1973 - Me and a Friend (put together from tracks she’d recorded for Black Ivory - Wanda had nothing to do with the release of this work, she had left the music business prior to it's release)
Both were released by the label - Perception Records
Both feature Wanda reading her work over Jazz-R&B
Her work could be viewed as an important precursor to hip-hop.

In 1972, fed up with being paid very little for her work, she shaved her head, changed her name to Laini Mataka and left the music business.
As Laini Mataka, she has several books of her poetry published
1988 - Never as Strangers
1994 - Restoring the Queen
2000 - Bein a Strong Black Woman

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Carmichael:

At the Richard Thompson concert Saturday night, most people were roughly my age ('60s). The few who weren't were about 20-25. A guy sat down in front of me and ruined my sightline. Bald with a ponytail, wearing a Who concert shirt.
  5:24pm Glistener MW:

My favorite local Jimmy Buffet story is the time he was being ejected from an NYKnicks game for swearing too much, and kept trying to ask the guards dragging him out if they were “Parrotheads” (the name for Buffet’s fans), but they didn’t get the reference and thought he was using some sort of racial slur as both those guards were Caribbean-American, so they dragged him out back and beat the living sh*t out him. XD
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Marathon 2022 Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Carmichael:

@dday, I sure feel like it ...
  5:25pm Tom from Stirling.:

@dday: man, that was a great concert. Bill Bruford ( who replaced Phil on drums on one Genesis tour) once said artists don't want to hide their work in a closet. But they dont want to compromise their work. The easier word to live with is 'Balance". Get the work out there for the people to hear and try to be true to yourself.

On a forum not long ago, somebody asked "Why would somebody voluntarily listen to Jimmy Buffet?"

I replied that Buffet makes me remember when the most pressing concern in my life was what was I going to make for dinner. If that's nostalgia then so be it. It works for me.
