nice dose of Zorn for your morn'

@Marcel: Yeah, he doesn't actually play on it, just wrote it! Marc Ribot kind of leads the charge there.

Hi, Dave! Hi, Berg! I can hear it...
Avatar 9:14am Marcel M:

I was just reading the interview of Zorn by Derek Bailey yesterday so very fitting.
Avatar 9:18am Joe McG:

Zorn has recorded so much stuff that there's bound to be something in there for everyone. I tend to like the film music.

Do you have the MCA 80s version of Gyspy Woman?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49am Guido from Cologne:

Just back from the doctors and the sun shining again after it had been constantly raining cats and dogs during the pst three days ... everything is getting better with the cure from some good soul stuff.
Avatar 9:50am Cecile:

oh, good Guido!

preach it Bobby.
Avatar 9:50am GeesyCreesy:

Update: these Womack tracks rule
Avatar 9:51am Joe McG:

@Cecile: This will be a very United Artists-centric tribute set. Our library only has 2 Womack LPs, no 80s stuff at all, no Womack and Womack either. I don't have much at home either except the old stuff. Sold my copy of "The Poet" a few months ago.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51am Guido from Cologne:

Oohh Bobby Womack ... i have an anthology box set unfortunately without booklet ...
Avatar 9:51am Cecile:

Oh, OK. That is a great era.

Avatar 9:53am Joe McG:

@Cecile: Tried real hard to dig it, but it never moved me. Don't know why. @Guido: Wish we had it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Guido from Cologne:

I post-commented Ken's last show, so if you dig the Tahtitian background story to some of the most hated Schlagers ....
Avatar 9:55am Cecile:

At first, I thought it was slick. But I heard some stuff from it again, and it burned. Sounds a lot better away from the era. But YMMV.
Avatar 9:57am Cecile:

So Many Rivers from the MCA era is worth looking for. It used to be cheap...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:57am adrian in mpls:

this is really doing it - haven't listened to much Womack before, so this is great. I'll have to check out Duane's show as well.
Avatar 9:57am Joe McG:

@Cecile: You know how these things go, Cecile. I'll probably buy it back one of these days.
Avatar 9:57am bobdoesthings:

urban dictionary for YMMV:
Literally means "Your mileage may vary" but is often used in forum talk meaning that your results will vary
Avatar 9:58am Cecile:

Adrian, I have listened to that tribute twice.

Guido, I'll have to duck over there and check it out.
Avatar 9:58am Joe McG:

@adrian: Yeah, check out Duane's archive. He was doing remixing and stuff way beyond my ability. I'm trying not to play any songs he played, though.

Avatar 10:02am Cecile:

I always loved how Bobby could be smooth, but he never lost the R'n'B and gospel vibe in his music.

Whilst, I gotta listen to that, too.

the record company didn't go for it.

This is my favorite version of the only good song that James Taylor ever wrote.

Swamp Dogg and Bobby remind me of my dad - country guys who had a really sharp, nutty sense of humor.

It's still in common use in black slang.
They even use it in a Planters Peanut commercial. "Sweet and Salty"

Not really listened to the lyrics but isn't it about a"Salty Dog" ?
