no complaints here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:38am Jack Mello:

hey steve and pkny, thanks for listening. "dove" is too cool.
Avatar 9:39am PKNY:

The whole Cymande S/T is an end-to-end burner, but "Dove" is a standout among standouts.
Avatar 9:39am Nick from Indy:

Good Morning all
  9:40am V Priceless:

Hey! Cool grooves - I think there's a remix of this on one of the 'Elements' 4 CD set - essential chill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am Jack Mello:

welcome nick and V. haven't heard the remix, will check it out, thx for the heads up.
Avatar 9:43am Nick from Indy:

The guitar tonality reminds me a little bit of "Guitar Voodoo" by the band "The Darkside" [Pete Bain (aka Bassman) & Stuart Roswell (aka Rosco) from Spaceman 3]

yo joshua, i'm not worthy at all! the highest praise...and stay tuned for BLT Radio after my show for his tribute to david mancuso.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Jack Mello:

apologies for that bad transition, pressed the wrong button. damn buttons.
Avatar 9:55am Joshua Fried:

eh...you played a track that felt like hour1 at the loft--the following track followed suit. Both artists (not sure about the particular tracks) have been heard on that sacred dance floor. Doesn't have to be more than that...I stand by my comment. And I blather again...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56am Jack Mello:

thanks much, joshua, appreciate it. :)

although of course we all miss ken, i too thank ken for having you sit in!
Avatar 10:03am northguineahills:

Huh, I always thought Cymande was British. Good to know!
Avatar 10:03am PKNY:

Avatar 10:04am PKNY:

@northguineahills - Cymande was formed in England, but all of the members I believe were immigrants. The inside gatefold of the S/T lists all of the band members and their home country.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06am melinda:

Hi Jack & everyone. I say sim-mon-deh.
Avatar 10:07am Marc Francis:

I don't often get to tune in on Wednesday mornings. So glad that I had the chance today! Loving everything I have heard so far, Jack! Perfect music for this foggy Quebec day.
Avatar 10:08am PKNY:

Barely legible scan of the Cymande S/T can be see here --> www.cymandeofficial.com...
  10:08am V Priceless:

@Jack re: Cymande 'Dove' track: clarification - check out 'Elemental Chill' Vol. 2: Earth - there's a cut called 'Skyscraper' by Kinobe. I think they lifted the entire groove of 'Dove' - whoa! That being said, all 4 CDs in the Elemental Chill set (Fire, Earth, Air and Water) are really brilliant. On Kriztal Entertainment label.
  10:12am V Priceless:

(You can compare them on the yootube!)

@V Priceless: Is vol Earth Terre Thaemlitz? Wait it may Soil I'm thinking of in another one of those series (all of my stuff is boxed up).

whoa, too many new commenters to thank, yikes. hey crypt, brian, ron, rsj, north g and melinda! and thanks letting me know how to pronounce words. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19am Passaic River Blues:

I was wondering if Duane would do a Love Saves the Day! tribute for Mancuso--glad to hear BLT is on the case. Also, thank you Jack for the Cymande, my man Hawtin, etc.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:23am JtotheK:

good morning everyone. enjoying the tunes, Mr. Mello. And looking forward to the Mancuso tribute on BLT's program - thanks for the heads up!

Diggin' the spins this morning, Jack. Pretty great stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28am Jack Mello:

hey north, think i was here in early september. hopefully at least once more before year end, depends on when the real DJs need a fill in.

hold tight, only 11 minutes left to go! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34am pantz:

Morning all. Never really got into The Residents. Where's a good place to start?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35am cklequ:

Start with Meet the Residents.
It worked for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:36am pantz:

Thanks, @cklequ
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am Passaic River Blues:

I think I heard a bit of Washington Phillips mixed in there (could be hallucinating). This is really hitting the spot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37am Jack Mello:

hello pantz and cklequ. not sure about the residents back catalog, sorry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38am Bronwyn Bishop:

I like Meet the Residents too and also, strangely, The River of Crime from 2006, which is a series of creepy audio dramas that are fun if you like that sort of thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38am cklequ:

@pantz - I've always been a pretty big fan of 'Not Available' as well...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am pantz:

Oh man, I remember buying this record from Liquid Sky in, like, 1996.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19am Jack Mello:

passaic, me too! temple records in the basement on lafayette st was a regular saturday pilgrimage. rave on!
  11:25am mg:

I wanna kiss you in Paris. yessssss
Avatar 11:25am northguineahills:

The last time I hit the Liquid Sky record store was its last location on St Marks. I picked up a bunch of Jungle Sky and the usual Liquid Sky records there as well as a lot of old 60s country records that were there for some reason. The kid working there was tripping that someone would be there to buy country records and liquid/jungle sky recs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am Passaic River Blues:

That's right--it was Temple in the basement before they moved over to Avenue B. I loved that place. Anyway, big ups Jammin' Unit and the Cologne Massive.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:26am melinda:

Haven't heard this in a while! I like the Immaculate Collection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27am Jack Mello:

good times, north and passaic. we were probably shopping side by side, waiting for you to get done at the listening station. please don't refile the records.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38am Passaic River Blues:

@Jack: I'm laughing because I was ALWAYS in the way around the listening station, just agonizing how to make my paltry sum of money stretch to grab a couple of white labels, while other dudes were itching to get to work on gigantic piles of records. Also: love this set.
