Avatar 11:29am Snoochienucci:

What is it about sheep that make them so musically inspiring?
Avatar 11:31am Joe McG:

@Snoochie: It's because they're so baaautiful.

Sister Bertrille gives two thumbs up to this song on the Flying Nun label.

Hi Joe and everybody! This has been a pretty nice, witchy set.

Sheep go to heaven. Goats go to the other place.

@Joe McG just realized that little joke you snuck in there hahaha
Avatar 11:39am Joe McG:

@loneliest Monk: Been awhile. Maybe I should do one!
Avatar 11:41am Joe McG:

@Snoochie: I was hoping no one would notice! ;)

Used to think that My Friend Jake was out of style for Free but I was misguided. Bit like Man of the World and F/Mac.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41am tim from champaign (now washington):

I think Clay should sing Feel Like Making Love or Rock'n'Roll Fantasy at the next Hoof 'n' Mouth.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:42am TheLoneliestMonk:

@JM ya should.
i'm sure the Surface Noise spin on it would make it non generic!
PS- you can simply type 'TLM', i'll get it
Avatar 11:42am PKNY:

I don't know a lot of Free's catalog, but every time I hear something, it's really good, and it makes me wish classic rock radio would play something other than "All Right Now"
Avatar 11:42am Joe McG:

@Tim: Sorry, Tim, I beat him to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:43am tim from champaign (now washington):

@Joe - You did?!? Which one did you sing?
  11:43am morphe':

Hey JOE!!!!!!!!
where ya goin' with those 45s in yer hand????????
Avatar 11:44am Joe McG:

@tim: "Sing" is generous, but I took on "Feel Like Making Love." Had a lot of fun hamming it up.
Avatar 11:44am Snoochienucci:

@Joe McG Also thanks for taking care of the on-going Nucci family Pledge confusion. My brother now has his shirt, all is good!
Avatar 11:45am Brian in UK:

I thought the Swaddling Songs album was by Moses Basket.
Avatar 11:45am Joe McG:

@Snoochie: I'm so glad everything is OK in Nucciville!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45am TheLoneliestMonk:

@JM oh yeah, forgot to mention, got my swag.
thanks, joe!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:45am tim from champaign (now washington):

Hahaha! That's great Joe! I'll have to dig into the archives.
