Good day, Gaylord.

Hi Gaylord! Here to self-medicate a case of the blues... I know can count on you as an enabler.

Gaylord! You killed me with Baris Manco's Gülpembe- which means 'Pink Rose' and is a song about loss...I spent all my teenage summers by the coast in Turkey!
I am remembering our talks after the Faust show lovingly! Greetings!
Avatar 5:14pm Sem Chumbo:

Hiya, Gaylord, and all. Wings to McCartney so far. Hmmm. Catholic enough for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Gaylord Fields:

@Fjolla: Thank you for checking in, and for the translation! (I didn't pick up much Turkish in my 10 days there -- just enough to yell at taxi drivers trying to cheat me.)

It was a joy sharing popcorn with you after the Faust show. I hope all is well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm Gaylord Fields:

@Sem Chumbo: Yes, my shows will have a bit of subtext running through them at times.

  5:34pm B Lawless:

There are many very good reasons for Dylan to have gone electric, but here's a new theory.

Dylan and the Beatles had a dialectical relationship quite similar to that of Cash and Dylan. One would influence the other and v.v. Dylan's acoustic folk deeply influenced John and the Beatles from 64-66. I'll Follow..., You've Got To... and Norwegian... especially, and later carried on with Revolver, made Dylan's style, to the man himself, too mainstream & predictable, too old hat. He wanted to shake up our expectations again, shed his old skin, and become something new, so he went electric. Did what THEY had been doing before THEY were influenced by him. Being Dylan, he probably wanted to prove that he could actually do their electric rock thing better than they could.

This (Norwegian Wood, etc.) is strongly analogous to Side 2 of G’NR N Lies. It immediately made the beat band scene turn more folkie, acoustic and introspective, killing off hair-pop-metal (G’NR) and beat-band-simplistic-pop-rock (Beatles). The harder thrash and death metals that followed, and became more popular in the wake of Lies, a market for people who didn't want bubble- gum or ballad-folk metal, is analogous to the pysch, proto-prog, acid, blues and other rock genres and subgenres that followed in the wake of Norwegian.... (The Beatles, of course, didn't fade away, as G’NR did, but continued to be a relvant part of the reaction against the rock rebellion that they themselves fomented.)
  5:34pm bill:

when you by older music for the show, are you going out of your way to find either stereo or mono mixes
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 5:36pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Dylan loved Little Richard before Woody Guthrie.
Avatar 5:37pm Scraps deSelby:

H'lo Gaylord, h'lo people people. It's sunday (sunday! sunday!) here in Snohomish County, Washington, a beautiful day I think (I can't tell weatherwise); it's rehab day every day for a while, and sunday means a day off from rehab.... yeah. Love this music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm Gaylord Fields:

@bill: It depends on the record label and the era, I guess. Sometimes I just go by gut as to whether I want the mono or stereo copy of an LP. Sometimes I just buy what's cheaper, if I don't have a preference.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Gaylord Fields:

@Scraps deSelby: Welcome! It pleases me to know that you're enjoying what I'm doing in such sympathetic surroundings.

Avatar 5:46pm Scraps deSelby:

when you say "soul makossa", immediately in my mind the album cover, a happy face of a woman, with the name of the album, forms

@Fox (Rā-chul): Glad you are here, whenever you're here!
Avatar 5:50pm Scraps deSelby:

(when I say "album cover", I mean The Lafayette Afro Rock Band; apparently they're a lot of "Soul Makossa" albums)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:54pm Gaylord Fields:

@Scraps deSelby: Oh, I remember 1972-73 being lousy with "Soul Makossa" cash-ins (and that's a good thing).
