You should do an Albert Lee interview someday.
Avatar 11:25am Michael Shelley:

I once waited on him (in L.A. - around 1985) and his wife was breast feeding and the baby fell asleep while feeding - so they didnt want to move - so they say there & talked music for a while. Nice guy...

Avatar 11:30am stereohysteria:

It's a shame Jerry got ousted from the telethon - I always wanted to donate an insane amount (once I became super-rich) and request a world premiere of the rough cut of The Day The Clown Cried.

  11:34am Jim B:

Once drove his wife back from McCarren Airport in Las Vegas. Since he was involved in a conversation, I decided not to hang around for the tip. When he saw me leaving he flagged me down & did gave me a nice tip. 'Nice guy' was my impression too.
Avatar 11:37am Uke Goldberg:

I was involved in the 1980s in the production of a record where it was mixed with a 2 inch speaker in the studio.
  11:38am eddy in australia:

The worst thing about those record hoarders is when they put their rejects back in boxes you've already gone through. Happens every time at the Housing Works street fair.
  11:41am dale:

i have this jerry just sings rekkid. cringe-inducing, but nice cover
Avatar 11:45am glenn:

i had a good used record day yesterday - 3 elton john, 2 squeeze, 1 tommy roe,1 nils lofgren, labour of lust and 1 oldish country comp. 9 albums, all in great shape. 9 bucks.

love the show...
Avatar #1 Hit Supporter Marathon 2021 Swag For Life Member 12:01pm Greg from Bloomfield:

Yes! The glorious return of TWGME!
  12:17pm Pete in Virginia:

Thanks for the very detailed description of seeing Jerry these days. I saw him in "Damn Yankees" at the Kennedy Center in 96 and he was superb, like in "King of Comedy." I wrote him an over-the-top letter telling him how good he was and he called me. Left a message on my machine with his dressing room and hotel numbers. I called him back and it was a brief conversation.
Avatar 12:18pm KP:

Re: Earlier question, there's no smaller speaker than the one in an iPhone and yes it sounded great.
Avatar 12:20pm Michael Shelley:

WOW! Pete! What address did you send it to?
  12:38pm drr:

The cover of this Johnny Watson & Larry Williams LP is one of the greatest.
