Hooray for shout outs :) El Chicano were a great band. Can’t go wrong with their first batch of albums.
Avatar 10:18pm Erica:

Too many versions of Summertime exists for some reason.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:19pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, but how many of them contrast fuzz guitar with the squarest vocals imaginable?
Avatar 10:19pm Kris Holmes:

The reason is it’s an excellent song
Avatar 10:19pm Little Danny:

This Four Freshmen is amazing. The huge now sound production is way ahead of its time for '63
Avatar 10:20pm Little Danny:

Hey, I like the Four Freshmen
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:21pm Funky16Corners:

I like them, too. They do some really interesting things on their later albums
Avatar 10:22pm Kris Holmes:

Can’t hang with the vocals. Rick Nelson’s version is my current go to.

"Breakaway" is the lead cut on Tracey Ullman's "You Broke My Heart in 17 Places" LP from 1983. A fun record.

Great film that goes along with it too
Avatar 11:10pm Franco Twinkie:

The movie by Bruce Conner of Tony Basil dancing around nude to herself singing is something to behold.

Either way, the version of the show that gets archived will be uninterrupted

Like a scratchy record which fits the theme I suppose.

Sonic is our provider.
  11:48pm Dean:

No need to apologize at all, LG. These issues are due to the incompetence of the morons who put us in this situation, among them, Vint Cerf, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, and their cheerleaders. The internet is an exercise in failure, yet we insist upon celebrating its random successes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:50pm Funky16Corners:

That's why I'm glad that I record offline here, and podcast everything. At least there's a complete version somewhere
Avatar 11:51pm Franco Twinkie:

Dean, Is it not why we stockpile at the peril of tripping over a pile of LP's in the middle of the night?
