Hey Queems, were you listening to Irwin's remixes last week when you were driving across New Mexico? I was wondering if you thought the aliens had arrived and taken over your radio
Avatar 3:24pm

Mast is one impressive outfit. I've liked everything I've heard by them. Everything I've heard by them has been curated by Mr. Chusid.

I liked Richie Havens' version of Here Comes the Sun...

Never dialed it in.
1st performer @ Woodstock before they had stuff up for the electric acts.
...Went to see the film in my callow youth - on more acid than I understood...RichieHavens melted me - in public - from the opener

Listening Out There:

Anyone know if Hal Blaine played on the Paul Revere?
Brian in New Orleans:

He was very genuine and caring. I wish I got to know him more. He was planning on moving here with us in New Orleans...Funny thing is ...he lived in Jersey City! Near Fmu DJ Scott if I remember Scott Correctly
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:51pm

Always thought PR&R played their own instruments. Good musicians and terrific vocalists.
Avatar 4:53pm
Listening Out There:

Thought so too, but amongst the recent obits I saw that Blaine played on a track of theirs...
Brian in New Orleans:

it is also true he made up the final version of "Freedom" when he opened Woodstock ....The next band "Groundhogs"? were stuck in traffic LOL ...He kept being asked to go back onstage. His ashes are spread over the grounds where Woodstock was.

Here's one. Not the one I heard, but it's one o' them: bestclassicbands.com...

The Sunwatchers seem to be everywhere lately. Might just be where I hang out. Whatever the reason, I am fine with it.

Keith was of the bash-anything-that's-in-reach school of drumming.
Avatar 5:06pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

In the Who doc 'Amazing Journey' - guy says that when Keith went to the solo - he'd change to the other bass pedal: apparently the equivalent of a gittarist flipping the gittar over...Not a conventional human being.

My name changed. I am fine with it.

Guido from Cologne:

Great cover art:
Avatar 5:08pm

Irwin do hear any Keith Moon in Grant Hart's drumming with Husker Du?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm

Keith was one of those all-too-common drummers who took solos while the other musicians were playing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm

That said, I admired his style.
Avatar 5:12pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Well - ask Townshend how he felt about that...
I wonder what Du might've sounded like w/out Who...

They were reportedly half a million dollars (pounds?) in debt before 'Tommy'. Townshend always said he intended them to self-destruct as his sort of Art School concept...until kids told him his songs spoke for them...& the checks came in...

Oh, yeah – Johnson and now WFMU Drummer-stream DJ Dave Sewelson were both linchpins of the Micros.

I trust everyone has been listening to Dave's excellent show? He has amazing musical guests – with whom he talks, plays selected recorded pieces, and usually blows live.

@ Little Danny...I was fortunate enough to catch Melvin Sparks at The Stanhope house about 20 years back. It was insane! Long live Sparks!
Andrea in Jersey City:


why do people feel a need to cover songs done much better by the original artist?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm

Maybe Sara just loves the song so much she wanted to sing a version. Honor the songwriter.
Avatar 5:52pm

@ed, cuz they have a good, fun, powerful time doing so and can share that song with their own fans, friends, whatever, maybe? idk
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm

Are any Beatles covers better than the originals?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm
Phillippe Bastille:

Nice set Irwin. Loved the whole show, actually, even the bed music. Thank you for putting this together.
Avatar 5:56pm

it seems like Irwin's shows act as the invisible quotation marks around the word Better..
Avatar 5:56pm
Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

a.) Singing it anyway.
b.) Show they can.
c.) Occasionally show other aspects of it.
Avatar 5:57pm

This was a powerful show, indeed

I was just curious. At least Sara didn't do it in that super slow wispy/wimpy singing style way that sooo many other singers have been doing to covers lately.
Avatar 5:59pm

e.) Acknowledge connection.
f.) Spotlight composition by separating it from a particular performance...
