Only my mama calls me Hugheleh -- bless you, @Roberto! But seriously, Ken Burns has done a documentary on so many big topics, maybe he needs to narrow his scope a little: e.g., Ken Burns "New Wave of British Heavy Metal"

anyone get this Lee Hazlewood collection that just came out?? i assume it is The Shit??
Avatar 🎃 Sat. 9/21/19 11:48am Sid:

Liking covers; depends on whether you heard the cover tune before the original (Beatles version of 'Twist & Shout' comes to mind. Love The Isleys, but heard the Fabs first).

Avatar 🎃 Sat. 9/21/19 11:54am Sid:

The version of a song I hear first is, for me, the original. Not always my favorite, but often, just by virtue of incumbency in my ears. If Pat Boone put out a song before an R&B artist, would it be the definitive version?
  Sat. 9/21/19 11:54am clarke:

pat boone never wrote a song in his life
  Sat. 9/21/19 11:56am clarke:

Which is the original of "Wild Horses"? The Burritos' or the Stones'? B came first, but...

The Sunday's version of Wild Horses is the definitive for me.

Apparently the band soured quickly on the LP cover for the debut, even though it seemed to define them so well. It was all done pretty much without their input so they never felt it spoke for them.

@Ken - just saw that quote myself. That first record is so loaded, at least 6 out of those 9 songs got a lot of radio play back then.

He was also partial to the Manfred Mann covers.

I have seen "Oh No Tinnitus!" Earplugs at the ready at concerts are a must these days.

That hits close to home, it was the worst when i first noticed it, then I learned to live with it. But still when it gets bad, usally after some stressful event, the cardio definitely shifts the pitch way down to something pleasant. I will be wearing plugs when I see the stones this fall.

too many grateful dead shows in my late teens and 20s.

Yep -- there was a great soul/funk/R&B station just below too -- early mid 70s. Miss great radio -- WFMU notwithstanding!

102.7 was the soul station. WSHE was 103.5
