First day off in some time so working out in the backyard, out in the sun like you said, but listening and loving.

  1:58pm hey buddy:

“Mowing lawn” should be an album by a psych band
  1:59pm Cyn:

Hello from Oregon. Pseu, you make weeding the garden much more enjoyable. Thanks!
  1:59pm judy from croton:

have to listen to pseu while laying in the couch, tapping my foot. At least I’m looking out the window at the rampant weeds.
  1:59pm Mike Sin:

Hello Pseu! Enjoying your show loudly as usual.
  2:00pm otto:

stuck in the shop... someone's gotta separate the screws from the nails
  2:01pm hey buddy:

Please give it up for “the mowing lawn”
  2:03pm judy from croton:

OK Cyn. I’ll blast the radio out the window and coax the maple seedlings out of EVERYWHERE
  2:03pm Lord Johnzon:

I don't have neighbors or a lawn mower... nobody's ever complained about my yard or my singing/guitar playing or anything... I love living in an abandoned neighborhood lol.
  2:04pm Lord Johnzon:

Picking up some compost today... gonna get a late start on planting a garden in my yard... beets n' greens, lettuce, maybe some flowers

Fun version of this song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:07pm Hughie Considine:

It's the original, isn't it?
  2:08pm melinda:

Neil that reminds me of the time I was chatting with my mom in the living room of her house when we heard a loud percussive noise, and it was the neighbor hosing down the side of the house. Too dirty I guess, and they were about to sell their house.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm Hughie Considine:

Hosing down the house!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:10pm Hughie Considine:

It must have presented quite a technical challenge to record this song in swimming pool.
Avatar 2:10pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

@Melinda-boundaries are important. That same neighbor's wife walked into my garden, picked a tomato and ate it in our back yard.
  2:11pm melinda:

@hughie haha!
  2:12pm melinda:

@Neil definite boundary issues. He's probably peeing in your yard too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm Hughie Considine:

Pseu, I would have been commenting profusely earlier but I was making a potato gratin. Maybe it was all for the best.
Avatar 2:25pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

Bob Welch kinda reminds me of Motley Crüe. Not sure why.

is alvin lee still around?
Avatar 2:45pm slugluv1313:

@ Wild Neil l l Peace All -- yup! Agnetha was one of the "A"s in ABBA -- "the one with the big behind!" i think she used to kiddingly refer to herself :)
Avatar 2:46pm V Priceless:

nope - Alvin Lee is dust, sadly
  2:46pm kenhi:

alvin lee...rip
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:47pm Bill in W.O.:

Thanks for the Jay S-G track, Pseu. Great little record, wish he'd make another one.
Avatar 2:48pm V Priceless:

I seem to recall his demise was somewhat tragic - died from complications of a plastic surgery procedure, or something like that : (
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:48pm ratso:

I like this sunny little Primitives song on a sunny little day.
Avatar 2:49pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

The Primitives guitar work sounds a bit like Killing Joke.
Avatar 2:51pm slugluv1313:

bummer -- Alvin Lee died in 2013
i loved "I'd Love to Change the World" when i was a kid and it was somewhat of a hit single (1971, i think?) -- got me interested in Ten Years After, and the lyrics really spoke to me
Avatar 2:53pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

@Bummer-check out Love's album Forever Changes I think its called? Some great stuff on their, 50 years old last summer.
Avatar 2:55pm Dominick:

Oh man!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:56pm Bill in W.O.:

Love was Arthur Lee. But he's dead, too. Hey, I think the neighbor guy who mowed your yard missed a spot. Better go check, HUH?
Avatar 2:58pm Wild Neil||Peace All:

@Bill in WO-OH! Different guy?! Now I know!
  1:49pm Renbo:

Hi It's me! I always have to catch your show days later but I love you, your show, and even some of your distant relatives I'm sure, these things being genetic
