A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Alice Coltrane carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

I remember Tavares getting played a lot in Atlanta when I was growing up!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:45am The Oscar:

When I worked at Planet Records in Cambridge there was a period in the late 2000s where we had a divider card for CDs by bands beginning with "Wolf" (Eyes, Parade, Mother, etc...). I'd always put Peter Wolf's albums in there to see if he'd notice on one of his regular visits, but if he did he didn't say anything.

I'm not familiar with the Jeeves books, but the first couple of them are in the public domain in the U.S., it seems: www.gutenberg.org...

Wodehouse is a really good writer. He really can immerse you in the world of flappers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:02am Granny Spicy Tuna:

Ike: What sphere said. Wodehouse is my go-to when i want guaranteed laughter. Jeeves is one of the greatest characters in fiction (imho, as the kids say)
Avatar 11:09am Trouble:

jennifer saunders from abfab is in a television form of Wodehouse's 'blandings': she is genius! i want to see more of her in historical pieces, so on point.

Avatar 11:42am Kevin_Ringwood_ UK:

or maybe that Cornershop track wasn't a hit outside of the UK?

Asha is like Jeeves—never fails to please

Ha ha Kevin, I had to fight the urge to get a brimful post in there, and had the same thoughts re Cornershop exposure outside the UK.

Dear God, this song. And this film.

Nulsh, yes, I suspect it's one of those things that only means anything here. Like Marmite, or Reginald Bosanquet

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am steveo:

“It is with heavy hearts we announce that early this morning, May 30th, 2019, Leon Redbone crossed the delta for that beautiful shore at the age of 127. He departed our world with his guitar, his trusty companion Rover, and a simple tip of his hat. He’s interested to see what Blind Blake, Emmett, and Jelly Roll have been up to in his absence, and has plans for a rousing sing along number with Sári Barabás. An eternity of pouring through texts in the Library of Ashurbanipal will be a welcome repose, perhaps followed by a shot or two of whiskey with Lee Morse, and some long overdue discussions with his favorite Uncle, Suppiluliuma I of the Hittites. To his fans, friends, and loving family who have already been missing him so in this realm he says, ‘Oh behave yourselves. Thank you…. and good evening everybody.'”

@Kevin and Nulsh: I do remember that Cornershop track, so it was widely popular in France too (that was before I found the station)

Thanks, Trouble. See you in June.

I first saw Leon Redbone on SNL when I was a kid. At first I thought he was a skit, then I became convinced he was actually Frank Zappa.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58am Nulsh:

Cheers Fred. Such a nice song.
Kevin, I haven't thought about Reggie in yonks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59am Rich in Washington:

He's now in showbiz Valhalla, laughing it up with Andy Kaufman and Zappa.

Thanks Trouble!
Avatar 12:00pm Kevin_Ringwood_ UK:

Nulsh, I was only 14 when he died, so I have no idea why his name popped into my head!
