Boy, Robert and Kurt sure brought "production" and "arrangement" into the American "indie-rock" fold quite nicely.

  11:56am Paul Payton:

Hi, Michael,
Wow! I knew Lloyd Price back in 1963 when he had Double L Records; he'd give me 45s to play on WBRU in Providence. Once when I was visiting he had to run out, but he got me invited to Motown's NYC office when the Motortown Review was there. Thanks to him I got to meet Stevie Wonder and members of The Temptations and The Contours. I don't know if I ever thanked Lloyd properly, but please pass this note on to him if you can.
Best always.

@Country Paul! Long time, my friend. What a lovely Lloyd Price story.

@Nate K.: That is the plan, yes.

I played drums with the great Lloyd Price in 1990. he showed up that day. it was a stone gas!

Oh that's just me in the Mercedes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:39pm Baby:

No no, it's me.
  12:42pm Paul Payton:

@djsheilah, thank you! And we actually played most of what he gave us on the air - his big band ("Billie Baby"); "Misty," of course; Pookie Hudson's "I Know, I Know"; and the wonderful early "If You Need Me" by Wilson Pickett. And I almost forgot Roy Tyson's late doo-wop masterpiece, "Oh What A Night for Love." It was a great label. It was sad about Harold Logan's early passing - he was a really good guy to me, too. - And yes, Sheilah, way too long!
Avatar 12:42pm northguineahills:

Walter Wanderley, haven't heard him in ages.
  12:44pm Hot Bar:

Oh yeah almost forgot I drive a delorean

How unexpectedly brilliant! Love the sentiment. And agree with @baby, SO Davey Jones.

This has been a top notch amazing show without Lloyd Price anyway, Michael Shelley!

The Merc Suvie was a false alarm, eh? Well, what Marc F said.
