My vocals sound a bit odd on today's show because I was on the phone :-)
Something a bit different ;-)

I didn't hear the beginning. Dammit.

Thank you for letting me horn in on your show. It was fun!

Hi Rich! :-)
Avatar 5:05pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@5:03 DJ GeorgyGirl: as a playlist fan (I always read them as valuable recommendations), I wouldn't resist if you posted the other 9 somewhere someday.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - Now THERE'S an idea for a show! ;-)
Avatar 5:08pm spacebrother:

Thrilington!
Avatar 5:08pm spacebrother:

Correction: "Thrillington!"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

My mum's enormous stereo system had a stacker where you could play a mighty SEVEN records one after the other. And she had Wings' "My Love" which was warped slightly. So if it was in the stack the fade out note was HORRIBLE. Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Can't beat a bit of Thrillington ;-)
Avatar 5:09pm spacebrother:

The KLH took 5 or 7 or so too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - The thrill of being able to do that tho :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:09pm Rich in Washington:

I loved automatic stacker turntables.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Percy Thrillington being one of many aliases by Mr McCartney :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - They were so much fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm Rich in Washington:

I'm actually tempted to buy one just for listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - I wonder how much they go for now?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:11pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I'm not sure if my Dansette has that capability to be honest
Avatar 5:12pm spacebrother:

Is this one I sent?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

It's such a thrill for me to hear Paul messing about in the studio :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - It is indeed :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think I'm right in saying that this is the first album credited to Paul AND Linda McCartney. Possibly a dig at John and Yoko?
Avatar 5:14pm spacebrother:

Here is a pic of the old KLH system I grew up on. The speaker covers were turquoise though: silverfacestereo.files.wordpress.com...
Avatar 5:15pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

Funny you should mention Animals, it was not the first, but among the first 12, 13, or something LP's I have ever heard. And no, I did not get it then (8 years old, autumn'84, barely started 2nd grade)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - My GOD that's beautiful!!!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:15pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - It's one of the albums that grew on me. And is now a firm favourite :-)
Avatar 5:16pm spacebrother:

My dad gave it away. I was so depressed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I think "Animals" got a little lost in the hubris surrounding both "Dark Side" and "Wish You Were Here", which is a shame
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Oh no!!! I hope the new owner cherished it
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Later in the show we have a world premiere performance of "Ram On" on ukulele :-)
Avatar 5:17pm spacebrother:

I hope so. It was gone when I finished college.
Avatar 5:17pm spacebrother:

@ GG - :)
Avatar 5:17pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

Dear internet, don't interrupt this. Pretty pleeeease.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - I do miss those enormous stereo systems
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:18pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - I predict by the end of this show you'll be wanting a copy of this album :-) <3
Avatar 5:20pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

My dad's stereo system was gone when I left home, i wonder where it went, could have been my place, no wait, I was no stereo thief. Not.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - Those old stereo systems are gorgeous and I wouldn't blame you if you did ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I like doing collabs. This was FUN :-D
Avatar 5:22pm spacebrother:

It WAS!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Greg was telling me that Dave Pepper did a whole Ram cover album. This is just one track from that
Avatar 5:22pm spacebrother:

I think it's Dave "Depper."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I have maybe five or six albums that I could happily listen to on repeat and "Ram" is one of them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Oh! My bad!! ;-)
Avatar 5:23pm spacebrother:

It's called the "RAM Project." www.davedepper.com...
Avatar 5:24pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

@5:21 DJ GeorgyGirl: a sturdy system, Bang & olufsen amp & turntable. Sadly thrown away by a relative as a piece of junk while I moved abroad for studies (if she only knew how much my father paid for the set)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I clearly had Sgt Pepper on the brain ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - When I think of all the bits and pieces of furniture and objects that were tossed from my family home ... Oof.
Avatar 5:24pm StringOFperils:

Ooh, RAM ! I never remember what you're doing to do ahead of time, so monkberry moon delight for me! I love this album (the orig sequence...I think I heard a reissue with added tracks, which was like Duchamp's moustache added to the Mona Lisa, without Duchamp's smarts), but I digress....a lot.
Avatar 5:25pm spacebrother:

@ GG - LOL! That's what I was thinking. I wish his name WAS "Pepper."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

SOp!! Hello! I have a cover of "Monkberry" that I think might blow your mind ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - In our heads it shall be :-)
Avatar 5:25pm StringOFperils:

Nice!
Avatar 5:25pm spacebrother:

@SOP - I liked the reissues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

A lot of the extra bits come from a 2012 Record Store Day 5 album box set, which has videos and all kinds of goodies.
Avatar 5:26pm spacebrother:

or the "moustaches"
Avatar 5:26pm StringOFperils:

I've only encountered the one, Greg. There are probably worthwhile reconstructions out there that I don't know about.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Are they like the cut-out moustache you got with Sgt Pepper? ;-)
Avatar 5:27pm spacebrother:

I like the "Backseat of My Car" phrase in there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:27pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Yes!!! I also noticed something in "Eat At Home" which I talk about later in a little extra bit :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This track is GLORIOUS <3
Avatar 5:28pm StringOFperils:

Yup. This was an AM radio game-changer.
Avatar 5:28pm spacebrother:

@ SOP - Yeah, there are so many out there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

If you've never heard this album and you're not sure if you want to buy it - THIS track will be the decider for you :-)
Avatar 5:29pm spacebrother:

It's making me cry.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Same <3
Avatar 5:29pm spacebrother:

This track. It's like I never heard it before.
Avatar 5:29pm StringOFperils:

Uncle Albert kinda prefigures/parallels/resembles 10CC's 'I'm Not In Love'....which had to be no accident.
Avatar 5:29pm Mr Fab:

Hey fab folks! Thanks to my much older hippie big sis for this, and many Beatles/solo records. So I was weaned on this. "Uncle Albert" was absolute magic to my wee brain. Still is. ("Three Legs" really is awful, tho isn't it? Jeez, how did that even make on the album.)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Everything about this track is just sublime
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - That's VERY interesting! I'd never thought about that before :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm Rich in Washington:

I just set aside my 7" of this for Singles Going Steady week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi Mr Fab!!! For the purposes of this show I am re-christening you Mr Fab and Gear :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Rich - Excellent choice!! :-) <3
Avatar 5:31pm Mr Fab:

I'd have to say that hearing "Uncle Albert" played over a loudspeaker when I was maybe 6 or 7 was the first time i remember really being struck by a piece of music.
Avatar 5:31pm Mr Fab:

GG: Ha, thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - Just when you think you have the song down, it does something else. It was mind-blowing for me too when I first heard it :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:32pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

WORLD PREMIERE!!!
Avatar 5:33pm solo mon:

Late to the party cuz daddy’s making money xoxo
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:33pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Hi solo!!! Just in time for the world premiere :-)
Avatar 5:33pm spacebrother:

Hey Solo!
Avatar 5:34pm Mr Fab:

"Uncle Albert" is what i call a "notebook song" - it's like, I've got all these bits I don't know what to do with, so let's put it all together. Could be a mess, but it somehow works beautifully.

Avatar 5:35pm Mr Fab:

That actually sounded good, Greg. Well-strummed.
Avatar 5:36pm spacebrother:

@ Fab - Thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:36pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Unsurprisingly I found nine million cover versions of "Uncle Albert" :-)
Avatar 5:36pm spacebrother:

@ GG - LOL!
Avatar 5:36pm Mr Fab:

Why is Spacebrother not on the playlist?!? The man needs clicky-stars!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:37pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

NOT included in today's show are covers by James Last and Hugo Montenegro!

Now this is Foster Sylvers - one of the family group The Sylvers who were rather overshadowed by The Jackson 5 back in the 70s. A stunning band - I've played tracks by them on LHT and I think on a couple of fill-in shows too. Definitely seek them out

Geez, sorry I discovered this one late!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:41pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Kenzo!!! Hello! :-D
Avatar 5:42pm Mr Fab:

I seem to recall thinking "Ram" had great moments but was a bit spotty, "Band on the Run" was rock-solid start to finish. And "Wild Life" was start to finish terrible! Tho truth to tell, I haven't sat down to listen to 'em since I was tiny tot.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Gorgeous, isn't it? Really good album :-)
Avatar 5:42pm spacebrother:

Ya missed my performance!
Avatar 5:42pm spacebrother:

Stream keeps cutting out here. Anyone else?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - Wild Life ...... yeah. A bit floundery. My second fave Wings album is "Venus and Mars" which is one of the first albums I ever bought :-)
Avatar 5:43pm Mr Fab:

KenZo! I was actually diggin your trip back to the Bush era on your show earlier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Really? Crap :-(
Avatar 5:43pm Mr Fab:

Yes, cuts out from time to time here, too.

Just a little here and there.

Avatar 5:44pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

@Mr Fab what a guy, makes you cry
Avatar 5:45pm Mr Fab:

Oh yeah, "Venus and Mars"! Big Sis Fab had the 8-track and would crank it when we rode in her pot-scented vehicle. Rock show!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:45pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr fab - Medicine Jar! Used to crank that one up back in the day :-)

Avatar 5:48pm Mr Fab:

"Ram," the WFMU connection: www.amoeba.com...

Will we be hearing anything from this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - I *almost* included some tracks. Almost. Part Two perhaps? :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I *do* have a track for Jan coming up tho ;-)
Avatar 5:50pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

This Smile Away seems a lot like something I heard in a portion of a Revolution #9 outtake recording.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:51pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Kenzo - There are definitely a lot of little Beatles' motifs here and there ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I wonder what it's like to be THAT famous?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And, that famous when you're really young.
Avatar 5:55pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

In spite of being all mental over the Beatles, for instance having read all Lewisohn's books and some of them many times - I know next to nothing about Beatles solo albums aside from the Plastic Ono/all Things must pass sort of thing.
So, even if I knew Ram got a rather cold response, it was harsher than I remembered, even from his ex-colleagues side.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:55pm Scrappy:

Does Harrison's Wonderwall Music count as the first Beatles solo album?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Scrappy - Good point!!! That and "Electronic Sounds" :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:56pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - Here's a twofer for you! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:58pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - The vitriol against Paul was nothing compared to the abuse that poor Linda got. And Yoko as well :-(
Avatar 5:59pm Mr Fab:

wiki sez: "George Harrison released 'Wonderwall Music' on November 1st, 1968.The first solo album by a Beatle..."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:59pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Mr Fab - There you go :-)
Avatar 5:59pm spacebrother:

@ Fab - Corrected! Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:00pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@SOp - Brace yourself ;-)
Avatar 6:02pm spacebrother:

When I first heard this, my head exploded.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:02pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thanks to Greg for this one :-)
Avatar 6:02pm spacebrother:

Metaphorically.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

And Screamin' Jay refused to play it because he said "This is a DRUG SONG!!" Lol
Avatar 6:04pm spacebrother:

He changed the lyrics and made it a drug song. It was just about about drinking before that. I think. Gaslighting Jay Hawkins!
Avatar 6:05pm spacebrother:

"Gaslightin'"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - And a man with HIS past is on rather thin ice ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

One for Jan! :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm Scrappy:

@DJ GG Ah, right! It's odd because they're very much legit albums, but so experimental that they feel easy to overlook. Like the early Lennon/Ono stuff.
Avatar 6:05pm spacebrother:

This is delicious!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Scrappy - I think people took them as part of The Beatles' output somehow. rather than "it's all over and they're now solo musicians"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:07pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - I have no idea who these people are so hopefully Jan will tell us more :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:08pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

I comment on this later BUT I only just noticed that this is "Obladi Oblada" :-)
Avatar 6:09pm spacebrother:

I was told once that this is a very dirty song.
Avatar 6:09pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

Just like the awful critical response, I had also forgotten Ram is one of the few 70s lp's to have a DEDICATED mono mix, (stereo fold-down to) mono promo copies were far more likely to come by for AM radio purposes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Eating in bed? Surely not? Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:10pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - Yes! :-)
Avatar 6:11pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

The only other mono 70s album I can name from the top of my head is Dr. Feelgood's Down By The Jetty
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:11pm Scrappy:

@DJ GG - That's a good point. Now I wonder how the breakup had an effect on their own songwriting ("all right, fun time's over, gotta get some commercial stuff out now")
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Scrappy - This is why I like "Ram" so much because it feels like Paul was just having fun :-)
Avatar 6:12pm Feldpausch:

Loving the deep-dive show GG!

@Feldpausch - Thank you! :-)

Yes, KUDOS!
Avatar 6:16pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

All the negative reviews just reminded me of that classic simpsons line:
Deprogrammer:
(...) But I did get Paul McCartney out of Wings.
Homer:
You idiot! He was the most talented one.

We had a good 37 minute run there. A clean copy will be on the archive, I promise :-)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:20pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - I recommend "Ringo" his 73 solo album. That's a good one :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:21pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This track is an extra from the 2012 remaster
Avatar 6:22pm spacebrother:

I like pretty much all the extras from the rereleases.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Considering he's noodling about, they're damn good songs

@6:20 DJ GeorgyGirl: thanks, I love recommendations (as long they're not "cut your hair")
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - rest assured, that's one thing this old hippie would NEVER say ;-)
Avatar 6:23pm spacebrother:

Some of outtakes where he is pretty stoned are kind of hard to listen to.

@Greg - Lol! Paul's pot consumption is the stuff of legends ;-)
Avatar 6:24pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

as a monomaniac, I really have to find the mono version of Ram.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:25pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - I'll have to see what my vinyl copy is
Avatar 6:26pm spacebrother:

I liked the version where someone put both versions of "Ram On" together in one long track.

~Photocopy - Stereo BUT the Apple logo is whole on both sides which is unusual
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Oh! I've never heard that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Paul's said this many times in interviews as has Ringo) and these jam tracks attest to it, that he just really, REALLY loved being in a band
Avatar 6:29pm spacebrother:

i sent it as "Ram On - Complete Take."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Yes you did! Brain fart!! Lol. I was in a bit of an editing frenzy that day ;-)
Avatar 6:30pm spacebrother:

NP. I do this kind of stuff all the time. I miss REAMS of things.

Your editing is superb, of course.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - Thank you :-) <3 It's one of my obsessions :-)
Avatar 6:31pm spacebrother:

I LOOOOVE this track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This is a favourite of Greg's <3

hmmm, the deluxe box set is available on my local (main) library - really gotta grab it next week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:35pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photopcopy - The Universe is calling you, clearly! ;-)
Avatar 6:35pm spacebrother:

@ Photcopy - Yes. Do it.
Avatar 6:36pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

The two of you have really done it this time. Yes, I'll go and get it.

"It's my house. It's my band. If I want to sit and jam all the day, then I'm going to sit and jam all day." Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

This kind of singing can't be good for the voice, surely?
Avatar 6:48pm Photocopy Cha Cha 2000:

Yes, that kinda style is pretty taxing on one's voice, examples: Macca, Robert Plant, errm I'd like to say Rod Stewart but when was he not raspy?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Photocopy - It makes me wince a little at times.
Avatar 6:49pm spacebrother:

Bon Scott/ Brian Johnson listened to this!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

We have one more track left after this - and it's my favourite :-) For me the closing track on the album is one of the greatest songs ever written :-)
Avatar 6:50pm spacebrother:

The vocals, I mean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@Greg - God, yes! Lol
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:50pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Stay tuned after me because ....... You have more Greg with "Stop Hitting Yourself"! Hurrah! :-)

Just how Brian Johnson still has a voice after 50+ years of you-know-what is beyond belief.

Hi MB! :-)
Avatar 6:51pm spacebrother:

MB sir!
  6:53pm Martinibomb:

I take it Greg recorded on his side and GG recorded on her side and then GG edited this all together? Or is it that GG is on Zoom and Greg is on a mic?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

@MB - Greg's on a mic and I'm on a headset :-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:55pm DJ GeorgyGirl:

Thank you Greg - this was so wonderful to do :-)
