Uncle Michael's avatar View Uncle Michael's profile Options

Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

@Gaylord--I do find that R.E.M. is good for listening at work. Nothing really to distract. Fine musicians. And yes @coelacanth--I listen mostly to the IRS stuff although there are some nice surprises on the stuff that came much later and got panned.

we made fun of country music when i was little. then my dad got really into it- esp Marty Robbins and 1-2 others.
i liked some (like Marty) and hated some,but it was weird 'cause we knew it was the influence of some outside woman in his life.

Hi chromaphone. Good to see you.

Hawaiian players certainly influenced steel playing but I think the steel came to the fore because it cut through the volume of amplified music better than fiddles did. It's too bad Lane's not here to school us today.

Hey UM I've been re-listening to my Have A Nice Day cds lately and you are right they sound so good sonically. Wow, I thought this was Leon Russell.

yeah Leon too!

I have a Hank Wilson LP from the same Hank Wilson. I have no idea who he really is as my feed died as you were announcing it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/17/15 1:57pm Uncle Michael:

It's Leon!

Jeff!

You're in with the in-crowd.

Wait this isn't ridiculous I must be thinking of a different MB song

Best of the Moody Blues (Fountains of Wayne covered something by them, escapes me which tune at the moment...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/17/15 1:59pm Uncle Michael:

I had to chuckle when you said that this morning.

Nice flute

I'm glad you're enjoying, melinda.

No doubt -- though I was trying (unsuccessfully?) to allude to the Casbah and the "chanting thing" that Doug had going on.

Argh...the writer attributes Jet Airliner to Steve Miller. It was a cover!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/17/15 2:11pm doctorjazz:

But, I like the cover. Impressed you got to the link so fast!

Thanks for spending time, coelacanth.

I'm slow on the draw once again! I should have learned to type.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/17/15 2:13pm northguineahills:

I've been in Yokohama at night, nothing too special going on (ok, I was a a kid, and wouldn't know).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/17/15 2:13pm doctorjazz:

@GaylordFields, you're right, that's what happens with a quick Google search. My bad! (they covered 2 Moody Blues tunes...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/17/15 2:13pm Uncle Michael:

This Willie record slays me. What was he going for with this in '68...commercially speaking?
Avatar Fri. 7/17/15 2:17pm still b/p:

A blendy thing of Bobby's Mack the Knife and Wayne's Danke Schoen and the theme from It's a Mad Mad Mad World.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/17/15 2:18pm Gaylord Fields:

@doctorjazz: Google wins this round, but i stand unbowed! Like John Henry vs. the steam hammer. (Wait — John Henry didn't stand unbowed in defeat. He beat that contraption and then dropped dead.)

So this is where the Beatles got this from!

My wife loves both Bill Murrays. I was surprised she had the whole collection of Billy & Ada when I met her over 8 years ago, in ol' Mexico.
Avatar Fri. 7/17/15 2:22pm chromaphone:

Wow Buddy Merrill has a bunch of weird stuff on Spotify. Thanks for turning me onto him Unkie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/17/15 2:23pm Uncle Michael:

That's so cool, ngh.

You're welcome, chromaphone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/17/15 2:24pm Uncle Michael:

Billy was clearly the biggest recording star, pre-Jolson, judging from how much of his stuff I've uncovered.
Avatar Fri. 7/17/15 2:25pm still b/p:

Was just looking something up a while ago during this show on an old Hinky Dinky playlist, and a Martha Tilton discussion happened to be on there. What a cohinkydink.

I'll say.

Hi Artie!

@chromaphone: The Beatles learned it from Emile Ford and the Checkmates' early-60s UK hit version.
Avatar Fri. 7/17/15 2:31pm chromaphone:

Thanks much GF, I was wondering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 7/17/15 2:34pm Mike East:

Billy Murray seems to show up on the antique phonograph program more than any other artist, from what I can tell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 7/17/15 2:35pm Uncle Michael:

He was prolific because he was successful.

I'm really starting to appreciate these 78 rpm era songs. I might have R. Crumb's disease. I'm breaking out in tweed.

You can have swell parties like Steve Buscemi and his buddies in Ghost World.

Hi Evan. There's life away from a computer?
Avatar    Fri. 7/17/15 2:53pm Rich in Washington:

An old timey record collector friend told me that that party scene in Ghost World is uncannily accurate

I'm fond of the Blues Hammer scene.
