hello everyone -- Flash, I caught the first 1/2 of your program, have to check out the rest via archives - some really great tunes!

Thanks JK!

LD: so cool to hear Denny himself describe basically just exactly how exotica works. what a find, man

Greetings J2tK!

@Flash, "Quiet Village" got repurposed by several different R&B and surf acts.

I know, I love how Denny builds out that tone poem motif by motif

had to google 'crown zellerbach'. always learning thanks to WFMU...

wtf is the "soft life"
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 10:23pm
JtotheK:

excellent question. speaking of Twin Peaks -- I finished 'The Secret History of Twin Peaks' book a few weeks ago. Worth a read!
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 10:23pm
JtotheK:

Now, have to re-watch the show to prep for the new season...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm
Little Danny:

When exactly is the new season scheduled to appear? And are you nervous about it like me?
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 10:26pm
JtotheK:

not sure what the air date will end up being...
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 10:29pm
JtotheK:

nervous... a bit, i suppose. i didn't see the show when it aired originally, watched it when the dvd's came out. (and the movie on dvd.)

nice sounds.

ipod set to WFMU app and wired into the stereo. Tuned in, in more ways than one. Love Arthur Lyman, M. Denny like crazy, and played a jimmy Scott Fire Walk With Me track on my own show last week.

Thanks Dano! God I love the Fire Walk... soundtrack and that Scott track in particular

was mentioning on Explorer's Room board that i tend to listen to 50s/60s jazz during the winter time... was thinking of spinning 'Mambo with Tjader' around the house this weekend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm
Little Danny:

Scraps! I dig your new assumed surname
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm
Little Danny:

Yeah, totally, j2tk. Cal Tjader's early stuff is so warm. Maybe it just makes me imagine some cozy nightclub
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 10:53pm
JtotheK:

tjader's 'tjader plays afro-cuban' 10" is a good one, too. you're right - any of his early stuff is worth a listen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:55pm
melinda:

I like melancholy folk/folk rock during the winter months.
Avatar 10:57pm
geezerette:

This set is so moody and rich.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:58pm

I dig where you're coming from Melinda. Any particular artists/titles you'd recommend?

Flash Strap:

I'm sort of away from the comments, LD, but all-in on the tunes. This show's been great, great, grand
Avatar 10:59pm

melinda, same here. And blues, jazz...

Enjoying all this -- and a star-click for Senor Blues was irresistible.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm
melinda:

@Danny: I like Fairport Convention's self-titled album. Bridget St. John. Judee Sill. Also, I find a lot of new-to-me 'loner folk' on Micah's show, Fridays at 9 am.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm
Little Danny:

Thanks, and oh man, Bridget St. John. Such a favorite. One of the most beautiful voices in UK folk

Evenin' still b/p! You have excellent proper tastes

melinda:

There's a nice 3-CD set that came out this year or last called Dust on the Nettles: a Journey Through the British Underground Folk Scene 1967-72.
  11:11pm
Dean:

Did you see my earlier message today about Dust on the Nettles to you, melinda?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm
melinda:

No, not today. Were you the one who discovered a 4-disc set?
  11:13pm
Dean:

I didn't discover one. I found evidence of one, but it turns out there was never a fourth disc. Cherry Red confirms it has always been three. My suspicion is that the site where I saw the reference (inc. a track list!) was bootlegging it.
  11:13pm
Dean:

Thus, I ordered my copy direct from them today!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm
melinda:

Interesting. At least now we know we're not missing out! I ordered direct from them too.
Avatar 11:16pm
geezerette:

nice!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm
melinda:

I also like melancholy film scores in winter. Thanks to WFMU I learned about Tariverdiev and got the box set of his works that came out recently.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:17pm
Little Danny:

Thanks for the tip on Nettles, Melinda! It's new to me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm
melinda:

This is beautiful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm
Little Danny:

Ah, geezerette! So glad you're here
  11:19pm
Dean:

I confess, I am now playing a CD on the home system to lull my kids to sleep. It is Jordi Savall's recital of John Dowland's Lacrimae. If you're melancholy, it'll do ya.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm
Little Danny:

Thanks, Melinda - it's a 45 I picked up quite recently. Don't know anything about it except that the address listed on the label is Birmingham, Michigan
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm
Little Danny:

Got some Bridget St. John lined up for you Melinda
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm
melinda:

Ah, Chelsea Girl is also a cold weather favorite album. Thanks for all the folky stuff!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm
melinda:

There was some discussion on another comment board recently about the similarity between Bridget and Nico.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:25pm
coelacanth∅:

funny, melinda - i was reading an email about that Nico discussion just now as this song started.
Avatar 11:25pm
geezerette:

Love Nico. A hot mug of tea with a drop of rum would be lovely too, might do that.
Avatar 💍 Swag For Life Member 11:26pm

gonna catch the rest via archives -- thanks for the tunes, Danny - enjoyed them! good night everyone.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:27pm

-3 of her albums, i think.

hi coel, don't have her albums apart from VU, but whenever I hear her I listen.

This is really nice.

ah this album.
Avatar 11:34pm
geezerette:

melinda, I remember the discussion began with similarity between Bridget St. John & Nico. How funny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:35pm
melinda:

What a great title for a compilation!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:37pm
coelacanth∅:

g, i have a few, and i've heard the rest...doesn't make me qualified, but i like marble index, desertshore, and chelsie girls - probably in that order.
her singing is the least off-key on those and the influence of John Cale and of Tom Wilson are most apparent on those, which is a good thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:38pm
coelacanth∅:

(damn i keep misspelling "chelsea" and saying "girls")
Avatar 11:39pm
geezerette:

Great info coel! thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm
coelacanth∅:

(i'd lend you my cds and vinyl, except for the 3000 miles apart thing.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:40pm
melinda:

@coel: I don't know the other albums but yeah, the producer/musicians for Chelsea Girl really made a difference. I like the alternate chelsie spelling. I didn't know anything about Tom Wilson until Irwin started playing his shows.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42pm
coelacanth∅:

i knew his basic story, read many liner notes he made; but never heard those shows. they're pretty amazing.
- what a cool guy.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm
coelacanth∅:

loving this set Danny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:44pm
melinda:

I probably have some albums with his liner notes but my turntable has been in a box under a bunch of stuff for the last 13 years, so I haven't been reading album covers for a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45pm
Little Danny:

Thanks Coel!
Avatar 11:46pm
geezerette:

Danny, loved the early winter mood.
Good night all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:47pm
coelacanth∅:

this is how smart i am... when i was little and i'd read liner notes by Tom Wilson, i always assumed it was Brian and Dennis Wilson's father!
- and when i read liner notes by Ralph Gleason always got him confused with Jackie Gleason!
DUH!

oh, goodnight g.
