  9:48am phat:

Oh my God Bob. Thank you so much for the Left Banke. I needed this.
Avatar 9:50am Roberto:

if not for Bob, the Left Banke would be nothing but Walk Away Renee to me.
  9:54am phat:

I'm not sure how I ended up finding the rest of their catalog. It was 15 years ago, at least. A revelation. So, so damn wonderful.
Avatar 10:00am Roberto:

15 years ago was when Bob held his legendary interview with Brown and Finn. Coincidence? Hmm...
  10:03am phat:

  10:04am RHenderson:

@Roberto: the same is true in my case. Thanks Bob! Otherwise, so interesting to hear the slight shifts in the timing of George H's off-beat 'answer' strums -which I can visualize easily, thanks to the movie - during "I Should..."
  10:11am WilliamfromDumont:

Chris Hillman produced a single for Hugh Masekela late'66/early'67.
  10:17am RHenderson:

Always amazed by how Leo K's playing announces itself as being his and his alone...from Note One.
Avatar 10:18am Marc Francis:

WOW! That Leo Kottke song was FANTASTIC.
Avatar 10:18am Marc Francis:

  10:23am RHenderson:

Ginger J's 'African Party' LP is a blast, start to finish.
  10:25am Jeff:

The Wolf was a force of nature!
