I like these Moricone tracks, but Se telefonando by Mina (& Morricone) can't be beat
  3:09pm Jett:

Happy that your show has begun, hope all things are fine by you. I'm fine just a bit sad to find out a friend passed away this week. She had called me a few days before to let me know how much she valued my friendship. She was depressed about having to lock down at home. Still don't know exactly how she passed. SAD! @djsheilab

We just had a *very* Sophisticated Boom Boom of a lunch with cheese and fruit and olives and are now relaxing with the quarantini: sidecars! Listening to Ennio, Sheila, and the rain.

@djsheilab I'm a great admirer of Ennio Morricone's work, so this is wonderful.

  3:27pm JoeG.:

Wow, these tracks are perfect for the ambient weather here in the northeast right now. They truly are day-brightening; music and weather have always had an interwoven link for me, and I suspect the same is true for most listeners here as well.

@Tim, I grew up in that river, between Sunrise and Watt. Everyday in the summer time.

Cecile: what's up with Bettye Lavette's bio?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Passaic River Blues:

That was kind of like when I first listened to that late Little Jimmy Scott covers record (where he covers Prince's "Nothing Compared 2 U") and just lost it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Passaic River Blues:

@Cecile: do tell.
Avatar 4:45pm Cecile:

IMHO, she had great stories, but is at least a selfish, impulsive person, and at worst, a raging narcissist. This is even factoring in the difficult road unique artists as herself had to tread in the last 60 years. YMMV.
Avatar 4:46pm Cecile:

It's not as bad as the Motley Crue bio, but I had a bad taste in my mouth, and it took me awhile to listen to her again.
  4:46pm Lee:

omg that Miki Nakatani track was gorgeous
Avatar 4:46pm mmeghan:

sheila, i love oyur show so much!! i play it all the time in my studio and my two studio helpers started listening to your show now too on their own :) spreading the boom boom love here in detroit!!

Bettye is one of the greatest living singers. That is never in dispute.

Cecile, my partner Kate would literally sit on the Motley Crue bio around a campfire and pull it out to read a couple of grafs every time I would get up to get the wood or beers in.

Pretty record, "I Want it Kept" good for a day like today!

exactly. and it also pointed out why i never thought Motley was that great of a band except for a couple of songs. They spent no time making music!

@Handy... so refreshing to hear you use the word 'literally' as it's meant to be. Kids these days use it as an intensifier. Clerk at WF told be she was "literally sweating to death." should I call 911?

Thanks for the info Cecile, I've never read anything about Bettye Lavette's personal life. I was afraid you were going to say she's a hardcore Trump supporter who regularly appears on the Alex Jones show ;)

  5:35pm P-90:

Now on line at the pharmacy to get Rx’s for my Mom (who I won’t let out of her apartment), socially distanced, masked, listening on headphones. Feeling oddly nostalgic for the days before the epidemic, when I would often listen to SBB like this while running errands...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35pm steveo:

Oh!

"Brazilians use Mas que nada (or just que nada) colloquially to disagree with someone. A fitting English translation might be a sarcastic 'Yeah, right!'.

With many recordings, the title song is incorrectly written Mais que nada (Portuguese for 'more than nothing') which would fundamentally alter its meaning. "

Oh and yes! I can’t wait to absorb hearty whites blessings!

It's been Cote d'Ivoire since 1986 but we still use Ivory Coast instead. And Cape Verde is a combination of 2 languages. Czechia is.... meh.
