Chicago is performing here in Pittsburgh on Monday. (No word yet when Pittsburgh will be performing in Chicago.) Good day, fellow Coulteranians!

Glad you both came horning in....

All the horns, with none of the dilemma.

Will there be Herb Alpert?

Hola Rich!

No Herb, no -- he ain't rockin' enough.
Avatar 12:15pm Cecile:

a lot of these horn rock groups had killer keyboardists, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:15pm Rich in Washington:

Wait...
This begs being mashed up with my favorite Bertolt Brecht quote:

I love this song, but never knew who played it. Clicky Star!

BIG BIG THANKS to Ed from Portland for his super-generous pledge over the week since last week's show!!!! YAY ED!!!

Hey ho, JtotheK!!

Oh Tony, just got back from another whirlwind trip to Portland. Sadly, no time to record shop.
Avatar 12:20pm Tony Coulter:

Oh well -- hope you had fun!!
Avatar 12:20pm V Priceless:

ha - just scored that Samurai album last week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:21pm Carmichael:

I'll be back for Thanksgiving. Will have plenty of time then.
Avatar 12:23pm Tony Coulter:

This Rastus record on now is the first record I ever bought with my own money -- not kidding! (Not this particular copy, of course.) I bought it because the cover features a crayfish wearing shades (and it was super-cheap).
Avatar 12:23pm Cecile:

also, the singers were belters. Had to be heard above the horn section
Avatar 12:24pm Cecile:

cool, tony!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:24pm Carmichael:

Cleveland band, I understand.
Avatar 12:24pm Tony Coulter:

Think so, yes.
  12:24pm ?:

Cleveland Ohio?
Avatar 12:25pm Tony Coulter:

Yep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:26pm Uncle Michael:

I knew I'd hear great music today...by horn bands I don't know...and therefore didn't include on the measly one-hour horn band special that I did for my old Viva Radio show. Rastus is kickin'!
Avatar 12:28pm Tony Coulter:

More Rastus ahead later in the show!
Avatar 12:28pm Cecile:

hey tony, did you take any of our suggestions from a couple weeks ago for this show?
Avatar 12:29pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, a few....
Avatar 12:29pm Cecile:

not that you really needed our help...
Avatar 12:31pm Tony Coulter:

One easy way to spot a horn band: There are so many members they can barely fit on the album cover.

Avatar 12:40pm Tony Coulter:

Don't worry, they're re-ee-ee-ee-ee-al.....

It's crazy that this was a hit.

A line so nice...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:55pm Carmichael:

I can't get over how the lead singer sounds like the Marshall Tucker guy.
Avatar 12:56pm Tony Coulter:

Rastus were a very tough looking band. Basically, they look like a street gang.
Avatar 12:57pm Tony Coulter:

Talking of vocalists, the vocalist for Solid Gold Cadillac is none other than Phil Minton!!

"Don't you breathe on my shellac...."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm Jeff Golick:

Minton? That's kinda nuts.
Avatar 1:00pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, it's him!! SGC was a Mike Westbrook project.
Avatar 1:01pm Mayuko:

So sad that I need to head out, but have enjoyed the first hour, thank you Tony! Have a great day everyone.
Avatar 1:02pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, Mayuko! Glad you caught the first hour!!
Avatar 1:02pm Cecile:

aw I missed a couple, but I'll catch it them on archives.
Avatar 1:03pm Tony Coulter:

Gas Mask's trumpet man was none other than ... Enrico Rava!
Avatar 1:03pm Cecile:

WOW
he of the interesting Michael Jackson tribute.
Avatar 1:04pm Cecile:

among other things.
Avatar 1:04pm Tony Coulter:

Hey everyone, don't forget it's Cap'n Crunch time for the station. Please help out if you can!!
Avatar 1:07pm V Priceless:

hey TC - any Earth Wind and Fire in the mix?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Jeff Golick:

Enrico Rava? Will wonders never cease?
  1:10pm Dean:

Does Chuck Mangione count?
Avatar 1:10pm Tony Coulter:

@ V Priceless: No, Earth, Wind & Fire today -- no. Though I did consider them, along with War. Decided both weren't really "rock," whatever "rock" is....
  1:10pm Dean:

Or does he just start blowing and improvise willy-nilly?
Avatar 1:11pm Tony Coulter:

Hey Dean!

Don't actually own any Chuck Mangione -- unless you count that great National Gallery album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:14pm listener james from westwood:

Dug the first hour-plus!
  1:14pm Dean:

Don't know that one.

EW&F and War aren't rock? But Malo is? Does not compute. I suppose Malo features more rock guitar, but still.
Avatar 1:18pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: Yeah, I know -- irrational. Guess I shouldn't say they're not rock. They just didn't seem to fit into the horn rock sound I had in mind.
Avatar 1:18pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, James!
Avatar 1:19pm Tony Coulter:

Think I skipped over the Abel track when I back-announced (forgot to write it down). Abel was a California Latin rock band led by guitarist Abel Sanchez. Very nice stuff.
Avatar 1:28pm Cecile:

forget metal, this might be the most macho of rock genres.
Avatar 1:29pm Tony Coulter:

HUGE THANKS to Brian from the U.K. for his generous pledge!! THREE CHEERS FOR BRIAN!!!
Avatar 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: You may be on to something there. There is Cold Blood, led by Lydia Pense, but I'm not really a fan, so she won't be showing up today.
Avatar 1:32pm Cecile:

I mean, not only is it almost all dudes, but they don't even sing about a certain range. No Rob Halfords or Bruce Dickinsons here.
Avatar 1:36pm Tony Coulter:

HEY!! We're at the halfway point of this show and have only gotten one pledge. Gotta do better than that!!! Please consider making a pledge, if at all possible. The station and stream really need your help. We're too proud to say it on air, but we're broke, man. Nothing but lint in the old pockets at this point....
Avatar 1:42pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: Here are some high-pitched vocals for you.
Avatar 1:42pm Tony Coulter:

... in this McLuhan track I mean....
Avatar 1:43pm Cecile:

I'll donate this month, but I've made myself stick to a strict schedule because this is a month where a lot of stuff comes due for me.

hahahhahhaha exception that proves the rule.
Avatar 1:43pm Tony Coulter:

and here's some hobbit horn rock....
Avatar 1:45pm Cecile:

the vocals say "hobbit" the horns say "soul finger"
Avatar 1:46pm V Priceless:

ha
Avatar 1:46pm Tony Coulter:

and now kraut horn rock .. produced by Conny Plank, no less....
Avatar 1:51pm Brian in UK:

Gorilla was the first Bonzoes album. Rodney Slater on the saxophone.
Avatar 1:51pm Tony Coulter:

True! Oh, and many thanks for the pledge!!!
Avatar 1:56pm Brian in UK:

Not heard Azteca in a month of Sundays. Have you ever featured Automatic Man, Tony?
Avatar 1:57pm Tony Coulter:

Nope -- have never heard Automatic Man, though I've certainly seen their record(s) around. Can easily picture the cover of one them in my mind's eye.

Avatar 2:04pm V Priceless:

good stuff, the A. Kooper-period BST.
Avatar 2:05pm Cheri Pi:

I heard there was a horn rock special going on?
Avatar 2:06pm Tony Coulter:

You hoid right. Vellcome, Cheri Pi!
  2:06pm Dean:

Yes, all of the tunes today were recorded by groups called Unicorn.
Avatar 2:07pm Brian in UK:

Did he say a month of Sundays?

He did!!

He heard you thinking....

Avatar 2:10pm Tony Coulter:

So what happened to all these horn players when the horn rock fad fizzled? Did they all shift over to disco?

This will bolster me for my upcoming third meeting of the day

Don't stop me from living my life
I don't need to be tied down
Society wants to tie me down and stop living my life
I just moved out of my folks's house and am riding cross country on a painted pony.
You are a fine woman but don't tie me down and make me stop living my life. You may, however, ride my painted pony. Both literally and figuratively
Avatar 2:22pm Cecile:

Sound about right?
Avatar 2:22pm Tony Coulter:

So, next week I'll be participating in the station's week-long "Singles Going Steady" extravaganza -- I'll be playing nothing but 7" records. The plan is to dip into my weirdorama singles box, which is full of novelty records and unintentional oddity of all kinds.
Avatar 2:23pm Cecile:

I both fear and anticipate that show, Tony.
Avatar 2:23pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: You got it! But don't tie me down, woman....

I wonder how many collective ounces (gallons?) of spit-valve spit were expended during the making of these songs.
Avatar 2:30pm Tony Coulter:

@ V Priceless: Right you are! Didn't notice that....
Avatar 2:30pm Cecile:

this track would actually make a great rap song.
Avatar 2:33pm Cecile:

oh! Do you know Ayers Rock, Tony? That was another Aussie jazz-rock band.
Avatar 2:34pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: I do! Think I may have played them on a past show....
