Listener comments!

  9:28am Paul Sherratt:

New Orleans ... it's Jazzfest time there at the moment - I haven't been in years.

How is it nowadays, anyone know ?
  9:37am Lil Buddy:

Are the Weems Brothers related to the Arc Weems?
  9:39am Mr. Pumpy:

  9:43am Paul Sherratt:

Elton Britt !! A holiday weekend treat..
  10:02am Cecile:

LOL! I read that Gonzaga track title wrong, and thought it was a value judgement on a NYC maximalist composer....;D
  10:08am Cecile:

  10:21am Matt M:

Yeah, it's totally Archie Bell. I think it's fine but it's certainly ironic considering how a few years later Jorge Ben famously sued Rod Stewart for swiping his song Taj Mahal...
  10:32am Cecile:

I did not know that!!!
  10:32am Lewis:

beautiful music this morning - really love the field recordings
  10:32am g:

and the refrain in this one sounds like Leadbelly's Where did you Sleep Last Night (and who knows where he got it . . .)

everybody borrows--truly great art steals . . .
  10:52am Parq:

Doug, I was gonna wait for the Latin set to drop this, but it looks like I’m gonna be busy today. Did you know that Record Mart is back? The underground mecca for Latin music has returned to the Times Square subway station. Haven’t had a chance to go in yet, but plan to do so soon.
  10:53am Parq:

And 'Cile, are you still here? Did you know tomorrow is Free Comics Day? My kid will be opening the neighborhood shop at 9 AM, and expects that there will already be a line.
  10:53am Cecile:

Yes, yes, yes! My husband will be there with bells on - they are givingaway a special HeroClix figure.
  10:56am Doug:

Yes, I am well aware the the Record Mart is back. What a thrilling circumstance that is! I have literally hundreds of records purchased there in its earlier incarnation. Like you, I haven't been back. Mostly because my music-buying budget is going almost entirely these days to the purchase of blank CDRs. Downloads constitute about 103 percent of my music acquiring just now...
  10:58am Parq:

I know the words to that song, Doug. But I hope you're budgeting just a little to buy some audio baubles for Lincoln. Gotta start 'em early.
  10:58am Cecile:

Paul, about New Orleans - here's an interview I did with a local record store owner and New Orleans lover about the current situation:
  11:05am Mark:

Rest in piece Mr. Giuffre... Thanks Doug!
  11:12am Paul Sherratt:

Thank you, Cecile !
  11:21am Cecile:

you're very welcome!
  11:24am J:

Thanks for playing all the Giuffre. One of the most overlooked greats.
  11:27am guy:

thanks for this Jimmy Giuffre music
  11:30am Cecile:

yes, thanks!
  11:38am C:

If you ever get a chance to see Tony Joe White play, make sure you take it. Incredible, no-nonsense performer.

Great show, as usual, Doug. Thanks for the interview, Cecile.
  11:42am Carmichael:

Yes!! I was just thinking of this song yesterday.

Welcome to my brain, Doug!
  11:45am Paul Sherratt:

Just wondering who is playing behind the great Arthur Alexander ?
  11:45am Doug:

Dude, I've been camped out on your corpus callosum for weeks. Took you a while!
  11:49am Doug:

Here's the lineup with Arthur Alexander:
Bobby Jay - lead guitar; Ben Vaughn - rhythm guitar; Mike Vogelman - bass; Seth Baer - drums.

Live on the Fresh Air radio show, WHYY, Philadelphia, May 7, 1993
  11:52am philthy:

The hendrix homerecordings were included with a biographical graphic novel. Remember my roommate had a copy and I taped a copy some years back. Need to find that tape.

Thank for playing
  11:55am g:

such a great song--both with and without all of the electronics on the album version
  2:37pm Jay:

Wow - the Brazilian set smoked. I never heard one of those songs before, and they're all fantastic.
  5:08pm mike tp:

doug liked rudy mockabee tune cheer up good weekend brother
  3:34pm Robert Sabin:

Thanks for the Jimmy Giuffre, I'm really glad I caught the show!
