Listener comments!

Avatar 11:54am Tony Coulter:

Greetings, oithlings! Today's show will be mostly devoted to '60s and '70s pop, psych, and prog, though I will veer off in other directions from time to time, just to maintain the proper level of disorientation.
  12:01pm Dean:

Where am I?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:01pm listener james from westwood:

How do, Tony and all! Happy to drift back to the 70s. Speaking of which, I kind of wish that illo was the cover of one of my childhood books.
Avatar 12:02pm Tony Coulter:

Heya, Dean & James!

@ Dean: You're in Hippy Town!
  12:04pm Dean:

Oh, man, that's cool.
  12:07pm Dean:

There's a widely read law and philosophy scholar (meaning, he teaches both law and philosophy, not merely "law and philosophy") who has been posting a series of Great Moments in Obscure Rock 'n' Roll lately. Three days ago he posted a clip of Rory Gallagher, mentioning Taste.
Avatar 12:16pm Tony Coulter:

I'm not too big on Gallagher's blues rock workouts -- just because I'm not big on that sound in general -- but early on he did definitely venture into psych.
Avatar 12:17pm V Priceless:

how dare I be late to the party! Hey TC!
Avatar 12:18pm Tony Coulter:

Hola, VP!!
Avatar 12:27pm Tony Coulter:

This is the part of the party where everyone gets super-depressed.
Avatar 12:35pm V Priceless:

@ Tony - have you ever explored either of the two Velvet Opera records? (featuring, of course, the pre-Strawbs rhythm section of Hudson/Ford). Real good psych/pop stuff, IMHO.
Avatar 12:36pm Tony Coulter:

I've got the first one -- which I like for sure.
Avatar 12:40pm V Priceless:

second one is a bit more bluesy/ folky, but killer instrumental version of Eleanor Rigby is a standout, among others, + dueling guitars of Johnny Joyce/Paul Brett is fab
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:42pm listener james from westwood:

Good to hear Karen among these other fine cuts!
Avatar 12:46pm Tony Coulter:

Umm, "Trisha-lay-na," not "Trisha-lah-na." You'd think I'd get it right after hearing the Raiders repeat it endlessly just 20 minutes earlier.
Avatar 12:46pm Mayuko:

Good afternoon, Tony and all!
Avatar 12:47pm Tony Coulter:

Hey there, Mayuko!
Avatar 12:56pm Tony Coulter:

This Now record *really* doesn't sound like it's from 1987.

Greets, coelacanth!
Avatar 12:57pm V Priceless:

hey fish!
  12:57pm Dean:

I would have guessed eleven years earlier, when Absolute Elsewhere released "In Search of Ancient Gods."
Avatar 1:00pm Tony Coulter:

There is something about the sound quality of the recording that says '80s, but otherwise.

By the way, I bought this Now record from Thom Jones (DDDJJJ666), who hates this kind of thing.

Avatar 1:21pm Tony Coulter:

Hey, hey, Cecile!
Avatar 1:29pm Cecile:

yes, I have this album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:30pm Carmichael:

Heya Tony and enlightened people. Pretty nice setlist thus far!
Avatar 1:31pm Tony Coulter:

Thanks, Carmichael. (And ... greets!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:32pm Carmichael:

Did Velvet Opera have a lead singer named Elmer Gantry?
Avatar 1:32pm Tony Coulter:

@ Cecile: The Left Banke, you mean? Or this Link Wray thing?
Avatar 1:35pm Tony Coulter:

@ Carmichael: Yes! Though one assumes his parents didn't give him that name.
Avatar 1:36pm Cecile:

Link Wray album. I bought it at a thrift shop in Calumet, Mi for like $7. I thought I paid too much, but then it kind of developed a cult following in the intervening years.
Avatar 1:38pm Cecile:

I might be able to get, oh $8 for it now. ;D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:40pm Carmichael:

Thought so, Tony. His given name is Dave Terry. I recorded with him one time in the early 80s.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:42pm coelacanth:

i got that left banke comp from the "record club of america", which i belonged to from around 9 years old to maybe 15, when i think they went under (?) - it truly was an excellent thing. great prices and no obligation. i also got the best shocking blue comp that i know of and the first albums i ever bought with my own earned money.
Avatar 1:45pm Tony Coulter:

@ Carmichael: Sounds interesting! Was whatever you recorded together released?
Avatar 1:48pm Cecile:

OK, the record cover - is it a Warner Brothers loss leader?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm Carmichael:

Oh yes, Tony. And quite famous. I was one of many many people filling in sound shapes, and alas, was never credited. Happened a lot back then, but I was grateful for the bit of fun it was.
Avatar 1:49pm Tony Coulter:

Yep, this Keith is the 98.6 guy.
  1:49pm V Priceless:

yes @ Carm - do tell!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:49pm Carmichael:

Heard a lot about this Keith guy. I have a 45 of his "98.6" cover, and have been looking for other stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:53pm Carmichael:

If I told, I would start sounding like Lyle ... :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:54pm coelacanth:

...except i might believe you!
Avatar 1:55pm Tony Coulter:

@ Carmichael: Keith's first two records are much more bubblegum-y than the one I played. "Adventures" seems like his attempt to get "heavy."
Avatar 1:56pm Cecile:

"what a shame, what a shame" is a refrain through this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:57pm coelacanth:

does anyone here have an opinion about this: is it worth it to sell used cds on ebay (or anywhere) or should i just put them in a box on the sidewalk?
Avatar 1:58pm Tony Coulter:

Depends what they are. Despite the party line that CDs are dead, some actually go for a lot of money on-line.
Avatar 1:58pm Cecile:

It depends on the title.
A lot of reissue CDs are one-off reissues and sold out fast.
Avatar 1:59pm Cecile:

What Tony said.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:59pm coelacanth:

i was afraid of that answer. i have no clue.
Avatar 1:59pm Tony Coulter:

The Mandrake Memorial CDs go for like a hundred bucks, for example.
Avatar 2:00pm Cecile:

maybe run some of the titles on Amazon? If they are out of print and $30 from used stores, then try ebay.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:00pm coelacanth:

hmm, don't have that one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:01pm coelacanth:

right. Thanks. i guess i should research a little.
Avatar 2:02pm Cecile:

There are some house CDs that are going for a lot, and some grey-market reissues of psych that are going for a lot, too.
  2:02pm Dean:

Instead of leaving them in a box on the curb, take them to your local public library. If they're in decent condition (not perfect, but not beat up) the Friends group will likely be able to sell them at one of its periodic book sales. Assuming, of course, the local public library has a Friends group.
Avatar 2:03pm Cecile:

If you have anything by the band Trouble on Def American, it will be get snapped up - they never reissued that stuff.
Avatar 2:03pm Cecile:

Dean, that's right. Mpls Library closed their Friends of the Library bookstore a while back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm Carmichael:

Wow, is this a pseudo-Yes band?
Avatar 2:05pm Tony Coulter:

There's King Crimson, Gentle Giant & ELP in there too -- but, yes... Yes!
  2:06pm Dean:

Closed the bookstore?! Bah!

For a time early in eBay's reign a buddy of mine and his wife ran a very successful CD auction business. All bids started at $0.01. They relied on the national and global markets to drive prices up. He'd buy CDs by the pound (literally) from the greater LA area, sell them individually online. Folks in some parts of the country had a hard time finding, say, Steve Miller records, and they'd pay a premium for them. The couple is now retired.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm coelacanth:

no, no house. nothing like that. more like Sinead O'Connor; oasis; Victoria Williams; hothouse flowers...and some odd things that nobody ever heard of -maybe local bands.
.....i am keeping most of my cds. these are just the ones i never listen to or are very short so i ripped the songs so i can get rid of the bulk.
Avatar 2:08pm Tony Coulter:

Stuff like that would be hard to get money for, sadly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm coelacanth:

-right. kinda what i thought. i'm not ready to let go of out of print William Parker cds. maybe if i end up in a refrigerator box.
Avatar 2:16pm Cecile:

Marie's CDs? I bought many CDs from them.
Avatar 2:16pm Cecile:

I'd still check. You never know.
Avatar 2:18pm Tony Coulter:

Is this S to S song about people who kill children ... or children who kill?
Avatar 2:20pm Tony Coulter:

Thundermug is too cool for apostrophes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:21pm coelacanth:

Thanks Cecile.
...i see the hothouse flowers cd ranging from $1.79 - $11.57, used. so maybe if i list them all for around 3-4 bucks each i might get it, and it'd just be worth my time. (i'm near the post office all the time anyway.)
  2:21pm Dean:

Yep, Cecile. Jay and Marie are friends from a long time ago. High school math class, Jay and I would plan the next weekend's record store trek across LA County.
Avatar 2:22pm Cecile:

they did a great job! Made a lot of rare things accessible to the canny watcher.
Avatar 2:22pm Cecile:

you did a great job, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:23pm coelacanth:

i'm not cool enough to let go of the apostrophes. i only recently stopped using one in "wont"...but i'm having trouble with it.
Avatar 2:23pm Cecile:

small damn world it is
Avatar 2:24pm Cecile:

I only drop apostrophes when I'm over a character limit in Twitter.
  2:25pm Dean:

Yeah, Jay knows his stuff. His own collection is...vast. They raised their son--now an architecture student about to wrap up his degree--with the LP collection stashed hidden in the garage. Only recently did their son see what dad had stored away, conveniently after vinyl became "cool." Great way to cultivate filial affection.
Avatar 2:25pm Tony Coulter:

It is my wont to keep the apostrophe in won't.
  2:26pm Dean:

I wan't candy means I don't want candy.
Avatar 2:27pm Cecile:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:29pm coelacanth:

ahh, i feel better. i won't consciously omit the ' from won't.
- i thought i'd try, just to streamline my fairly slow typing; but it goes against my desire to rebel against the dummying down that's epidemic.
  2:32pm Dean:

Any good songs about adhesives?

Too busy to post, but been enjoying the show...
Avatar 2:34pm Tony Coulter:

"Stuck in the Middle with You"?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:45pm coelacanth:

"sticky sticky" (1910 fruitgum co.?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm coelacanth:

"gluey porch treatment" (melvins)
  2:49pm V Priceless:

Thanks Tony!
  2:49pm Dean:

Stone Temple Pilots did "Adhesive," which I've never heard. But I was thinking more along the lines of songs about mechanisms of adhesion. (That three-word phrase would serve nicely as an album title.) You know, mucilage, epoxy, polymer, cyanoacrylates, etc.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:53pm coelacanth:

hmm. i'd guess that many years ago there was some goofey song made about the miracle of adhesives by some science organisation; or as a promo for duco cement or something.
Avatar 2:53pm Tony Coulter:

@ Dean: What you need to look for is an industrial stage show prepared for the 1969 conference of the APA (Adhesives Producers of America). That should do the trick.
Avatar 2:54pm Tony Coulter:

(I made that up, of course.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:54pm coelacanth:

i have such songs about electricity; rubber; plastics...there must be one for glue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:55pm doctorjazz:

This Horn is pretty wild...part Beefheart, part Miles.
  2:55pm Dean:

Hmmm, maybe I should stick to songs about getting drunk 'cuz my woman left.
Avatar 2:57pm Tony Coulter:

How about songs about getting drunk and using adhesives 'cuz my woman left?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:57pm coelacanth:

i can't think of any songs like that.
