h'lo Mark R.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12am Scraps:

very upset!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15am Scraps:

Maybe "post-metal" means you mostly can understand the vocals
  3:15am Mark R:

Good morning, Scraps!
Avatar 3:17am coelacanth:

i'm surprised it wasn't me you had a conversation with about steppenwolf! (er, or was it...)
-i wish i could stay up for more but i just got all the crap dealt with that's kept a sick person awake too late already.
  3:20am Mark R:

It might very well have been, Coel--I'd have to go back and look at the old playlist! Sorry to hear you're not feeling well--(or is it a loved one?). Maybe you can listen later in the archives!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am Scraps:

sorry, coel.... bummer
Avatar 3:24am coelacanth:

no it's me - and Thank you. it's just bronchial infection with a constant throat tickle and sniffles.
...working in the cold, not sleeping much and eating too much cake might do that to a person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am joeray:

Mornin' Mark R.!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:24am Scraps:

Weston is playing at Lincoln Center? He's 90!

Man oh man, I wish I still lived in New York
Avatar 3:26am coelacanth:

i'll def come back to the archive. -and Thanks Scraps.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:37am Scraps:

Love this. I don't have this, but i got several Max Roach 1980s LPs, and they had Randy Weston on em. I think....
  3:37am Mark R:

And yes, a quick search reveals that was in fact Coelacanth with whom I had the intellectual exploration of the merits of Steppenwolf.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am Scraps:

  3:40am Mark R:

"Spirits of Our Ancestors" was recorded after Randy had lived in Morocco for several years. The original intent was to record the album in Morocco, but then the Gulf War (the first one) made that impossible, so they returned to New York. It also marks the return of arranger Melba Liston, who had suffered a stroke in the 1980s. It's a two-disc set, and it's all beautiful, a true masterpiece.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:42am Scraps:

I have to track it down. Antilles albums are sometimes hard, if it's out of print
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:45am Scraps:

But the Cherry i have. So, so awesomely awesome.
  3:47am Mark R:

"Complete Communion" is a desert island disc for me for sure. Looks like "Spirits of Our Ancestors" is available used or as a digital download, which is better than nothing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:49am Scraps:

Oh, that's fine, for me. Great.
  3:49am Mark R:

Support your local record emporium if you can. Surely Seattle has some hip used disc stores.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:54am Scraps:


But. (Stop me if I get too personal.) I'm out in the boonies. I'm disabled, and poor. (Stroke, my right side is paralyzed.) Mostly, I take what I can get.
  3:55am Mark R:

Well, then, a digital download might be just what the doctor ordered (pun most definitely intended).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58am Scraps:

Though i still like to go and hit the record stores, if i can. Nostalgia, if anything else
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:59am Scraps:

But boy, i miss e. 8th east village.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10am joeray:

Sing-a-Long with Mitch (Miller) recordings sound more normal when played at 45rpm!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am joeray:

...and the Monster Mash 45 is vastly improved when played at 33 1/3!
Avatar 4:16am dan in wisconsin:

Any chance of hearing some Thin Lizzy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24am Guido from Cologne:

Good morning Mark!
Hello people!
Avatar 4:27am dan in wisconsin:

Mornin' Guido! Mornin' Mark and fellow listeners!
Avatar 4:28am dan in wisconsin:

Yeah! Love Thin Lizzy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28am Scraps deSelby:

Ha Lizzy
  4:28am Mark R:

Morning, Dan, Guido, Joeray, et al. Thanks for joining me!
Avatar 4:36am dan in wisconsin:

Thanks for the Lizzy, Mark! And sorry for the harsh segway. It's been a rainy, mild night in western Wisconsin.
  4:37am Mark R:

I take responsibility for all segues. I think you and I are the only ones who even noticed, anyway...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37am Scraps deSelby:

Joan Armatrading self-titled album is one of my desert albums discs
Avatar 4:38am dan in wisconsin:

Some Eric Dolphy may have been the more appropriate choice, I feel. Something off of "Out There".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39am Scraps:

produced by Glyn Johns, immaculately
  4:40am Mark R:

Love that album--very overlooked. Love that he has a bass AND a cello on it. However, that's going to have to wait for another show--maybe next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45am Scraps:

Henry Threadgill has several albums with Fred Hopkins (bass) and Deidre Murray (cello). Threadgill Threadgill Threadgill!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:47am Scraps:

(My favorite living composer/musician)
  4:48am Mark R:

His new album's a monster btw. I should play that on a show in the near future.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:49am Scraps:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52am Scraps:

That one has cello and tuba!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:54am Scraps:

And his Very Very Circus -- which I saw several times -- had two tubas!

  5:08am Mark R:

You've all gone so quiet. It's that time of night when the night owls start to fade and the early birds aren't up yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11am Scraps:

I'm very awake still, but I'm maybe talking too much.
Avatar 5:12am dan in wisconsin:

Nah, keep talking Scraps. I wasn't aware that Glyn Johns had produced the Clash. Did a quick search and found that out...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13am Scraps:

The clash?? I was talking Joan Armatrading....
  5:14am Mark R:

There's a cool video out there where he shows you how to mic drums
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14am Scraps:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15am Scraps:

Oh, i got it now, Dan
Avatar 5:18am dan in wisconsin:

And...... the Stones, Bob Dylan, and Blue Oyster Cult apparently...
  5:18am ?:

Now this is tree watering music.
  5:21am Mark R:

I'll take that as a compliment.
  5:23am ?:

Yes, always take them where you can.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24am Scraps:

Pi Recordings is..... Henry Threadgill's label.

  5:28am Mark R:

Well there ya go--they're into progressive sounds, obviously.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33am Scraps:

Oh yeah -- Steve Coleman, Muhal Richard Abrams, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Wadada Leo Smith, Vijay Iyer, etc
  5:38am ?:

Do you own this disk? I love it.
Avatar 5:39am dan in wisconsin:

Now that literally just felt like an ocean (including seagulls) opening up into my living room. Killer segway....
  5:41am Mark R:

I do own it (on vinyl), and I see that it's gone out of print and they're asking outrageous prices for it online. I don't even see it as a digital download. That sucks. Sometimes you can find albums like this at your local library if you're lucky.
  5:48am ?:

You should convert it to a disk.
  5:49am ?:

It's too early in the morning to have to keep doing these math equations to post!!
  5:50am Mark R:

That's not a bad idea, ?...I have a few vinyls I need to do that with.
Avatar 5:58am dan in wisconsin:

Not bad for a 400 + year old track....
Avatar 5:59am dan in wisconsin:

Great show this morning, Mark. Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00am Scraps:

Thank you!
