Ooh, never heard a cover of this Judee, thanks. And morning!
  9:09am DebfromWetCali:

Morning, Bob! I'm up to hear your show; still dark on the west coast.
  9:15am WilliamfromDumont:

Morning all. Arthur Blythe died? Damn.
  9:17am will from croton:

Hi Bob
You made our day with the Jude Sills song. Judy and I have spent some hours pondering that one and pondering Jude.
Thanks as always
  9:23am judy from croton:

Wow Bob; true inspiration this morning. Thank you.
  9:23am AZ Dave:

Missed you last week, Bob -- without your show, early a.m. Saturday is not the same!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

^ Yup all that - & unfamiliar Hollies & beautiful Trane cover too...
  9:26am joe from Warwick NY:

This is such a great set, I feel like it sounds tracking my NY Spring view right now
  9:27am DebfromWetCali:

Thanks, Bob. I'm dancing around my apt now!
  9:28am Santos L Halper:

Also not heard Ronnies version of this except on pete's record
  Swag For Life Member 9:36am tadpoles:

Excellent documentary about Ronnie Lane:


Ultimately sad though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:39am melinda:

Thanks for that link, tadpoles.
  Swag For Life Member 9:41am tadpoles:

You're welcome Melinda. Available on Netflix if you're interested. Cheers.
  9:42am Santos L Halper:

That is a good flick tadpoles. I didn't even know that was a Faces song, just the Who Came First version. And now I have to go find the Turtles(!) doing Judee Sill...
Avatar 9:44am SmokinJ:

Lovin' it!
  9:45am David in ATL from NJ:

Bob, what has PJ been up to?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am melinda:

My first celebrity sighting was Ronnie Lane at the Whole Foods in Austin in the early 80s. I was in junior high and wasn't familiar with the Small Faces but had just seen him on the cover of Rolling Stone, surrounded by musician friends who were playing a benefit concert, I think. It was a big deal to me then but since he wasn't a current pop star my peers wouldn't have known who I was talking about, had I shared the story.
  9:49am Stuart Rose:

Hey, Will, I think the stranger Jude refers to in the first verse is JD Souther, who upped and left her.
I always wondered, though, about her Jesus - does he call her, and everyone, to bear their own crosses as they go through life and suffer. Or are these men she's put her faith in, like JD , really just bandits, false messiah ? Anyway, poor Jude had her needle and her great talent and her mysticism never could overcome it.

Good morning

Nice Pentangle
  10:31am Stevel:

Lower them frogs, brother. Lower them frogs.
  Swag For Life Member 10:32am tadpoles:

Most famous Studio/Live..."Wheels of Fire"..Cream !
  10:34am pp:

didn't that last tune's melody remind one of Golden Years? The title of the compilation was Heroes ... hmmm.
Avatar 10:37am Bob Brainen:

Yup, Wheels is the one I was thinkin' of (gimme the studio sides!!)
Any other 2lp live/studio albums??
  10:38am Stevel:

King Sunny Ade. So light. So laid back.
  Swag For Life Member 10:39am tadpoles:

Mountain: Flower's of Evil
  10:49am WilliamfromDumont:

Chambers Bros. Love, Peace and Happiness?
Avatar 10:49am Bob Brainen:

Wasn't Ummagumma 1 record The whole band vs. 1 record of 4 songs each by a member? Was there live stuff?
  10:51am WilliamfromDumont:

Sides 1 & 2 of Umma recorded live Bob
  10:52am Dick Slexia:

Felix Pappalardi brought the Cream ways over with him to Mountain.
Avatar 10:54am groucho:

I live near Lindisfarne
  Swag For Life Member 10:56am tadpoles:

"Anyway" by Family is one side studio and one side live but I guess that doesn't count as there are probably lots of single albums like that n'est ce pas?

Great show thanks Bob!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56am mauri:

Good show!
  10:58am Cooh John:

Thanks! Saw them this week.
Avatar 10:58am Bob Brainen:

Chambers Bros. gotta check it out
  11:03am Jack:

Canned Heat - Living the Blues - their second album i think. I once heard Jonathan Swartz play part of it on WNEW in 197?, and then interupt, take it off and apologize for playing it!
