♥ 9:02am annie:good morning bob! ♥ 9:03am duke:Hi fellow Brainiacs ♥ 9:03am duke:High praise for early Fleetwood Mac ♥ 9:04am Scraps:hey h’lo 9:05am dan:Early Fleetwood <ac, not to be confused with another group with the same name. 9:05am J.D.:Good morning all.
Nice to start off with Peter Green!
9:05am dan:MAC 9:09am WilliamfromDumont:Mornin' BB and all. Good to hear Chris Youlden's distinctive singing. 9:09am Jack:I've always loved Chris Youldens' voice. So distinct 9:10am dan:Savoy Brown is one of those bands I should be into, but never got around to. I have a vinyl of there's that I only played once. ♥ 9:11am Tome:wake and bake yeaAA .. 9:13am Doc Rock:Good Morning & Hello Bob & listeners. Great 2 start Sat. Morning with Fleetwood Mac w/ Peter Green & Savoy Brown. British Bloozz lives.
Hey JD, how ya doing.
9:15am Bob Brainen:Morning all, topic on my brain: bands that put out a debut album and then by the 2nd album there is almost a complete turnover of personnel. I'm not talking a gradual changeover, but an almost complete one from 1st album to 2nd. Like one original member left.
Savoy Brown is one. Only Kim Simmons. Renaissance is another-started out as a Yardbirds (!) offshoot and then zero originals and then the Annie Haslam era. What are some others?
9:16am J.D.:Gotta keep on keeping' on, Doc!
Talk to you soon, brother!
9:16am dan:Sisters Love sounds like a knockoff of the Staple Singers 9:16am J.D.:Moody Blues? 9:17am J.D.:Deep Purple? 9:17am WilliamfromDumont:Iron Butterfly? 9:18am J.D.:Maybe I'm wrong. Could be that the Moodies and Purple just ditched their lead singers. ♥ 9:19am Scraps:Love Repercussion. Love first two dB’s albums. ♥ 9:20am Scraps:Third too, mostly ♥ 9:20am Tome:in Purple yes , but Moody blues , was a complete change from their 1st ,, and then Days of Future Passed for sure ... ♥ 9:22am jkeigh:East of Eden? ♥ 9:23am Hughie Considine:@Scraps, I love "Like This" (dBs #3, but w/out Stamey) too. Peter Holsapple wrote a great, insightful piece for the Times about trying to make "Love Is For Lovers" be a big hit and how he didn't really have the pipes for it. 9:23am WilliamfromDumont:Muhal Richard Abrams!! 9:23am J.D.:R.I.P. Muhal ♥ 9:24am jkeigh:I think Geoff Nicholson (SP?) was the only one left after Mercator Projected 9:25am Bob Brainen:Good one Wm! 2 members left? Ingle and Bushy? 9:26am Bob Brainen:Purple, diff. singer and bassist? ♥ 9:26am Scraps:Oh shoot, you’re right, Hughie. I’m talking about the fourth album, The Sound of Music. 9:26am WilliamfromDumont:Think so Bob. Some of the guys on the first lp joined/formed Rhinoceros? ♥ 9:27am Scraps:Ah, no, Muhal! 9:27am dan:SMALL FACES. Just what the doctor ordered. 9:29am WilliamfromDumont:Muhal makes a brief but memorable appearance in Medium Cool. 9:31am Bob Brainen:Butterfly-2 originals, Purple - 3 originals 9:35am dan:The Michael you're referring to is Dunford. 9:36am dan:Rod Evans was the original lead vocalist of Deep Purple 9:41am dan:I don't know how anyone has the stomach to be an insurance salesman. Ives must have been one gregarious man. ♥ 9:41am Scraps:Wallace Stevens: banker ♥ 9:44am ottovonbqe:The Snowman ♥ 9:45am duke:The Emperor Of Ice-Cream - Wallace Stevens ♥ 9:46am Scraps:13 ways of looking at a blackbird ♥ 9:47am Scraps:A high-toned old christian woman 9:47am dan:Sounds like a band trying to imitate The Rolling Stones ♥ 9:48am melinda:Hi Bob and everyone! ♥ 9:49am Hughie Considine:Stewkey has to be one of the least-known single-named rock singers. 9:55am dan:This is a Kinks songs that should have been more of a hit. 9:56am dan:Kinks 'song' 9:59am WilliamfromDumont:I don't know if you can break it down by albums, but would Them fall into the category? 10:02am steve:what's the theme music he just played ♥ 10:06am tadpoles:The Eric Clapton & The Powerhouse featured a very young Stevie Winwood. 10:07am J.D.:not as young as when he was w/Spencer Davis Group 10:11am dan:The Kennedy Center Honors missed a god opportunity to laud Fats Domino. Hopefully they'll turn their focus towards Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis 10:13am dan:'good' opportunity . My computer keyboard is a bit rusty today. 10:27am Robert D:Shite. 10:39am stevekos:Not sure if this would qualify regarding your initial query, but Elvis Costello's first album was recorded with a backing group called Clover, which eventually morphed into Huey Lewis and the News. After that, he assembled the Attractions, who became his formal band for years afterward.
Speaking of which, Bob, I don't think I've ever heard you play an Elvis song. I guess you're not a fan, but I wonder why. In my estimation, he's one of the greatest and most original artists in the history of rock.
10:41am dan:BB, you should do an all 1960s/70s British folk show. That would be paradise for me. 10:43am RHenderson:The few who noticed Duncan Browne's late '70s group Metro probably considered them as ersatz Roxy Music, yet Metro's lone self-titled LP is a great collection. 10:45am stevekos:PS - re: Elvis. Failed to mention, also, incredibly prolific, with a range of style I think is unmatched by anyone. 10:45am Bob Brainen:stevekos, the Elvis C. story is interesting, Gotta think on it... Clover w/John McPhee ->Doobies.
But no Hughie Lewis, right?
10:48am Robert D:Wow. What a treasure trove of mediocrity. 10:51am Dean:Upthread, Wallace Stevens...not a banker. He, too, was an insurance executive. 10:51am Robert D:Now that's what I call music! 10:53am stevekos:Bob - Yes, John McPhee, and no Huey. Various members of Clover ended up with Huey, Doobies,
Toto, and Lucinda Williams. Footnote on My Aim is True - Clover didn't play on Watching the Detectives. It was the rhythm section from The Rumour, Graham Parker's band.
♥ 10:55am Cat:Great version of Little Rootie Tootie! How's the rest of the album, Bob? 11:01am Eric in Cincinnati:Great show Bob! 1:01pm bob b:Cat, whole lp is very cool! Thanks all!!
