Good morning, Bob and all. It's a beautiful spring day in the NY metro area, but I ain't going outside when I know there's so much good music going down inside.

was just thinking the other day that it's been a long time since i've heard Doc Watson on FMU
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19am northguineahills:

buenos dias Bob and fellow Braniacs.
  9:20am dan:

I didn't have to look and I knew that was The Bear singing.
Avatar 9:21am Jack:

I used to love Canned Heat.
Avatar 9:21am kevino:

Very underated band>
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:21am Henry in Hopatcong:

Love me some Doc in the morning! Great tune!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:23am melinda:

I like the smooth sounds of the Sour Note Seven.
Avatar 9:28am Bob Brainen:

Morning all!
Avatar 9:31am Jack:

Canned Heat related trivia: there's a crater on the Moon named after Henry Vestines' father.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32am KevinfromBayRidge:

Morning Bob & Brainen-acs, Didn't realize till recently that NRBQ played the Fillmore East
Avatar 🥁 Swag For Life Member 9:32am WilliamfromDumont:

Morning Bob and all. NRBQ sounds great. Nice remaster.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:33am northguineahills:

Woah,that's cool Jack!
  9:40am dan:

And yet Green Day is in the HoF. WTF????????
Avatar 9:42am SmokinJ:

Raiders Rule!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am unpopularfred:

Good tune.
Happy Patriot's Day weekend everyone
  9:43am pp:

I thought that many of the 60s and 70s soul and r&b acts aren't in the HoF. Like Spinners, etc. Even Rundgren. Screw the HoF
  Swag For Life Member 9:43am tadpoles:

Agree Bob...under Paul Revere's goofy surface was a great Rock band.

IMHO the greatest omission from the Hall of Fame is Arthur Lee & Love. Influenced a great many later bands including the Stones, the Doors and Hendrix. Their music still holds up great today. Cheers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:43am unpopularfred:

@Dan - know your enemy
Avatar 9:44am SmokinJ:

The R&R H of F is a total scam!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46am Dano59:

That first set started with lots of nicely layered harmonies and guitars - not a genre, but I like it.
My top "snub" is NRBQ. i brought it up with Warren Haynes of the HoF once and he said "I love NRBQ too but they don't have a chance."
  9:46am dan:

The HoF still hasn't inducted Jethro Tull, The Doobie Brothers, ELP, ELO, among others. Glad to see the Moody Blues, Cars and Dire Straits getting their due.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:47am Dano59:

Warren's top choices - the ones he voted to go on the ballot - in 2004 were Neil Diamond and Dorsey Burnette.
  9:47am David in London:

@tadpoles. Totally agree about Love and Arthur Lee. Had the immense good fortune to see Lee in Liverpool in the early Nineties, and it was one of the greatest gigs I ever saw, even after his desolate years had obviously taken their toll.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49am Dano59:

It's a popularity contest, record sales being more important than aesthetics (hence the perennial debate over what is and isn't 'rock and roll'). Green Day is apparently the greatest punk band of all time per one poll. Oh well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50am Dano59:

New topic: Is Del Amitri power pop?
  Swag For Life Member 9:50am tadpoles:

@David...lucky man. I've seen film footage of that tour and wish I could have been there. I think Forever Changes has just been re-released again.
Avatar 9:51am Roberto:

Del Amitri: one of the most underrated bands of our time? You be the judge!
  9:53am David in London:

Still, the whole HOF was worth it if only for Iggy’s brilliant induction acceptance speech where he paraphrased F Scott Fitzgerald to talk about the ‘Second act of his American life’. Way to go Igmund.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53am Uncle Michael:

Good morning, alla youse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am Dano59:

oh yea by the way good morning brainenphiles!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:54am Corey:

Morning all! Great set to accompany the snowstorm we're currently experiencing in Michigan.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:55am Dano59:

Part of my do-list this weekend is send in my FMU donation...
  9:55am Phillio:

Ah, I friggin love Herbie Nichol’s music
  9:55am David in London:

@tadpoles. He did the trumpet break in Alone Again Or as an a capella scat, and I knew I was in the presence of greatness. Possibly time to rebuy Forever Changes again then, thanks for the tip off.
  9:59am hawkeye:

  9:59am dan:

@Corey: Snowstorm wow. It's gonna be in the 70s here in NYC
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:06am Corey:

@dan A glimpse of late spring/early summer in NYC sounds nice. Hopefully this is Michigan winter's last gasp
  10:12am Douglas:

Your’e right about Paul and the Raiders.I knew him and he really was a cool guy.Saw Canned Heat many times,once with John Lee.
Avatar 10:16am Jack:

I was debating whether or not to read Rita Coolidges autobio; I used to really like her (with Mad Dogs and Englishmen), but I have absolutely no interest in Kris Kristofferson.
  10:17am dan:

Brian Jones does not get enough credit as a great harmonica player. What a talent.
Avatar 10:18am Nanker de Tucson:

also sounds like Brian Jones on backing vocals
  10:19am dan:

Interesting how the Stones version of I Wanna Be Your Man predates not only the Beatles version, but Beatlemania.
  10:20am David in London:

These sounds showed a whole generation of British kids that there was more to life than the shitty post War austerity they’d been handed down, and helped inspire them to create something better. A lesson that could stand repetition today...
  10:22am Kevin in Doomsville:

Vintage Yardbirds. Just been revisiting second incarnation of Jeff Beck Group. That boy sure can play!
  Swag For Life Member 10:23am tadpoles:

Great bass also on both these Stones and Yardbird tracks.
  10:23am Douglas:

Brian Jones could play everything
  10:23am dan:

The current Yardbirds lineup is now 4/5 American.
Avatar 10:24am Jack:

Oh, and also in re: Canned Heat. Bob, maybe sometime you could play Alan Wilson's "Poor Moon"? My favorite Canned Heat track.
  10:27am Doc Rock:

Hey Jeff!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39am Dano59:

David: Now more than ever! I've been watching documentaries on poverty-ridden British kids, and attendant drugs and violence ... I thought America was bad.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am unpopularfred:

great show today Bob
  10:50am dan:

Spooky Tooth, one of those bands that should have had the worldwide influence of Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. A band that spawned the careers of Gary Wright and Foreigner's Mick Jones.
  10:51am Jeff:

Hey Doc!!
  10:53am tuskandhusk:

Tuned in here at Starfish and Coffee in Ohio
  Swag For Life Member 10:54am tadpoles:

@Dan....drummer Mike Kellie also went on to further fame in the Only Ones.
Avatar 10:58am Nanker de Tucson:

Another great program today, BobB !
  10:59am dan:

Great program as always.
  Swag For Life Member 11:00am tadpoles:

Thanks for Saturday morning Bob. Cheers.
  12:27pm me:

Hey, did you play a spoken word/beat jazz type song called something like "As I Open the Window" by The Charles something Quartet on Saturday 4/14 around 10AM? Loved the song, can't find it anywhere. And it doesn't seem to be in your playlist...
  3:49pm me:

Nevermind, I got it. It was Kenneth Patchen. Surprised I'd never heard him before. His voice has kind of an early Tom Waits vibe. Thanks for turning me on to his stuff. :)
