Hey, if I graduated in 1985, was it really 1986 the day I walked down the aisle cap and gown or was it really June 1985? I am confused now about if I started kindergarten at age 4...

They were really out there for back then as I was discovering this whole world of college radio and REMs colleagues.

re: "The Last Ritual"
Always saw this LP listed in in Capitol numbered lists and was a bit curious, but saw all the long tracks... Glad to be hearing it for first time. Never reissued, huh?

This is mostly all new to me. Thank you.
Avatar Mon. 6/27/16 11:40am Joe McG:

@Mike Sin: Not to my knowledge. Produced by Tom Wilson. A very interesting LP: a bit of country, a bit of jazz, a bit of horn rock. Very involved, interesting lyrics.

at one time covering as many genres per disk as feasible was de rigeur! i do recall.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/27/16 11:43am Linda Lee:

indeed, LL is old enough to remember when this was happenin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/27/16 11:46am Cecile:

I remember the first Zapp album of all things having country (!!!) and rock tinged deep cuts.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/27/16 11:47am Linda Lee:

indeed. crossover was the game. even in mainstream radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/27/16 11:50am Linda Lee:

not so many sturdy boxes.
i have a 5 disc set of nashville stars doing current pop/light rock hits, early 70s vintage. that's 5 albums worth.

Big fun this morning, Joe. Thanks a lot, and see you again next time.
Love this Dolly, btw.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/27/16 11:50am Cecile:

also, loads of these bands had to play live anything and anywhere to be able to make a living at music.

Oof.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/27/16 11:53am Linda Lee:

right. also, the demographics just weren't as compartmentalized, in terms of marketing or airplay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/27/16 11:53am Greg from ZONE 5:

Did you go see Dolly, Joe?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/27/16 11:53am Brian in UK:

That Five Man Electrical Band, is it on a Train label?
Avatar Mon. 6/27/16 11:53am Joe McG:

Sure did, Greg! She was a goddess.
Avatar Mon. 6/27/16 11:54am Wild Neil:

In the beginning, FM radio was a real free-for-all from what I have heard here and there...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 6/27/16 11:54am Brian in UK:

Present tense, Joe.

Great show as ever.

This country set is stopping me in my tracks!
Avatar Mon. 6/27/16 11:55am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening and commenting, all! Have a GREAT week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 6/27/16 11:55am Cecile:

someone was complaining on slate that the old chart system should come back so that an album can really be the "album of the year". I personally loved it when Sound Scan upended everything in the 80s. It reflected what people were actually listening to.

My one great regret: I cannot whistle.
