|The Band - Chest Fever|
(Apr 22, 2008 - 13:08)
|I heard Bill G. mention that Garth Hudson was playing a Hammond B3 on this song, but I was under the impression that he favored the Lowery organ. Any clarifications from organ experts?|
|Flash and the Pan - Walking In The Rain|
(Oct 02, 2003 - 17:50)
|This song was marginally interesting when it first came out, but I sure got sick of hearing it. Time has not been kind to it. I am getting a complex, because songs I think are much better, and have submitted, are not added to the playlist. Oh well, I'll still send in my MONTHLY CONTRIBUTION|

If by churches you mean houses to worship the Higher Power of your understanding, rest assured there are plenty here. If by churches you mean Klan enclaves, reptile houses, or places in which you can marry your sister, I guess you're right, you had better stay in North Carolina....

If memory serves, I think that's James Taylor on banjo, with both him and Linda Ronstadt on backing vox. According to legend, Neil shanghaid them away from their appearance on the "Tonight Show".
|Frank Zappa - Camarillo Brillo|
(Mar 08, 2003 - 11:23)
|At last, some Zappa! Thank you, and could you play some of his instrumental stuff? "Son of Mr. Green Genes" from Hot Rats would be nice.|
|Jimmy Buffett - Boat Drinks|
(Feb 09, 2003 - 20:07)
|There are few artists(?) I detest more than Jimmy Buffett. His whole scene, with its forced fun atmosphere, is so contrived and banal that I get seasick just hearing his voice. |
|Bob Dylan - Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again|
(Jan 17, 2003 - 15:06)
|This song is quintessential Dylan. I love his epic narratives, especially when they are more uptempo. I also love the wordplay. And, he is so easily imitated, anyone can sing along. Now, Bill, how about "Lily, Rosemary and The Jack of Hearts"?|
|Leon Russell - Out In The Woods|
(Jan 04, 2003 - 10:28)
|If the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame can induct Billy Joel, Tom Petty and The Flamingos, I think they might be able to find room for Leon Russell! |
|Peter Gabriel - Digging in the Dirt|
(Dec 21, 2002 - 20:08)
|I saw PG about 2 weeks ago, in LA....I couldn't really tell where my seat was by the online seating charts. Imagine my glee when they seated me three rows from the stage. My voice was gone for the next week, but it was worth it. I thought I was too old to yell and dance for over two hours....|

As mentioned by others, the guitarist is Steve Hunter. He was the same studio guitarist that "ghosted" the impressive soloing in the beginning part of "Train Kept A'Rollin'" by Aerosmith.
|Bryan Ferry - Fool For Love|
(Nov 24, 2002 - 18:41)
|I saw Bryan Ferry live last night in Hollywood. Most Excellent. His band was great, especially Sistah Sarah Brown on B.Vox. She is a fox.|

But I can see your point, yes.
Bjork: The Other White Meat
|Sarah McLachlan - Blackbird|
(Nov 17, 2002 - 09:08)
|I've always preferred John to Paul, but I must admit, I don't think I've ever heard a lousy version of this song. That is a hallmark of quality, IMHO.|

Aren't you thinking of BING Crosby?
|Jeff Beck - Ain't Superstitious|
(Nov 10, 2002 - 18:21)
Rod never sang better than when he was with Jeff, and Jeff never had a better singer than Rod.
Amen to that. This is back when Rod was a rocker. Jeff still is. I don't see how people can call this truly awful, but there you go, individual taste. Too bad they can't respect others.
|Tom Petty - When a Kid Goes Bad|
(Oct 31, 2002 - 21:32)
|I never liked this whiney, smarmy guy, although his band can cook. Too bad, 'cause one of his engineers is a regular cigar-buying customer of mine. He's always telling me about Petty, and I grit my teeth, smile and nod.|
|The Clash - Train In Vain|
(Oct 31, 2002 - 20:51)
|The original "hidden track". These guys played at my college(Carnegie-Mellon) in 1982. The riders on their contract were so extensive, we took to referring to them as "The Cash". They did do an energetic show, however, despite the dreadful gymnasium acoustics.|
|It's A Beautiful Day - White Bird|
(Oct 19, 2002 - 22:17)
|Truely a classic, from 1967 I believe. I was only 5 when this came out, but got into the album years later. To those who are retching over this tune, chill, this is the stuff that influenced your favorite bands...um, somewhere down the line...|

AMG gives a writing credit to "Tzuke", so I guess it's Judy Tzuke?
|Peter Gabriel - Burn You Up Burn You Down|
(Oct 17, 2002 - 20:59)
|Too bad this wasn't offered on the US cd...if he felt it didn't fit, why put it on the UK cd? Oh well, I got a ($150) to his show in LA, I'm trying to get more into the new cd, nice sound, a little dense for me...|
