GarrettTheK As long as we're attending mid 60s jazz shows which freakishly produced Billboard hits (is that what we were doing?) - another classic w good reason.
GarrettTheK Not sure whether this is live, but I saw him do this live once. There aren't many of this gentleman's breed - or his generation of musicians - left.
GarrettTheK nice groove going, nice tempo. I think my ancestors came from Germany. You go far enough back, though...right? All I'm saying.
GarrettTheK Mmmm stretched out under a tree in the shade listening to the leaves rustle

rico Chris Murray cancelled his Amsterdam show a few months ago promising to come later this year. Haven't heard of yet... Shame.
angiece some days make sense . . today is not one of those days . . but at least we have "Sweet Memory" - Melody Gardot . . .
GarrettTheK Hope everyone had a BOFFO 4th! I missed Robyn & his buds the first time around. I won't make THAT mistake again. Impeccable production on these!
GarrettTheK I forget, what did Bo Diddley cal this beat? Oh yeah. The Bo Diddley beat. Fingerwaves @avivamagnolia, @sangawa, @AgentSpymonkey, @100yearoldman
GarrettTheK Dig those backup singers. You can almost see their earrings swingin' as they toss their heads back. Hep hep @rulemanes, @gleysonkkrt, @Daeflyn Mm-Hmm!
GarrettTheK MASSIVE props to whoever turned me on to these guys on blip. Kickass song, HEAVY disc.
GarrettTheK Juice to Smoothie. Get it? Get it? Okay then. Shout out @tresvampiros, @presi, @rulemanes, @gunsnnoses, @krisp, @DJKeuterFM & of course @MusicWithMsB.
GarrettTheK Transition, you say? How 'bout a Smooooth one...
GarrettTheK Hey look, I found some Coyote Bones. Tasty!
GarrettTheK If this band name/title combo doesn't bring a listen or two I'll be surprised. It's a quite nice guitar/organ instrumental.
GarrettTheK Hmm I've never heard Savoy Brown sounding so Southern. I mean a la Skynnrd.
GarrettTheK Here's The Twang (as opposed to the Tang). Is it too early to be drinking in L.A.?
GarrettTheK Speaking of drinking in L.A. here's a guy who could tell some tales -
GarrettTheK Hey I've got an idea - let's just keep on drinking.
GarrettTheK Yow I wonder when this was shot. Tight horn section!
GarrettTheK Dang I almost forgot about Pete. Seems like a lot of us have. In his time though, in his time - he was a KING.
GarrettTheK A CLASSIC. No really. A. CLASSIC. So glad I found it.
GarrettTheK Do the Truckers sing from personal experience?
GarrettTheK Seems the Soul Benders want to be elbow benders...
GarrettTheK One shouldn't drink on an empty stomach. Who feels like some Chinese food?
GarrettTheK No one who's seen the film "Very Bad Things" will ever hear this song exactly the same way again. Films have a way of doing that to songs, eh?
GarrettTheK Dang now I really am getting hungry.
GarrettTheK 'Cause you just can't get enough of that good soul stew.
GarrettTheK Mark Knopfler has a beef about his diet.

GarrettTheK "Who could blip the best instrumental I've never heard...Anybody?" The best stuff is international (imo) but for some reason I'm drawing blanks.

GarrettTheK Every song an auditory adventure. Not to go all goofy over these guys but...
GarrettTheK I love that rapid collapse into chaos that ends Cale's Fear. Something similar happens here guitar-wise, slashes through the fabric of the melody

Jeffie Kyu Sakamoto - "Sukiyaki" ...Sorry. This one plays all the way through...
GarrettTheK @the_night_manager by way of @FlashHarry: Donovan's SotW One of the most underappreciated 60s-70s artists" Agreed, agreed. (reblip)

GarrettTheK Not sure whether this will be in its entirety. For what it's worth (zip) My favorite Floyd album's title track:
GarrettTheK An entire album of personal gifts, all of them moving & personal. Haven't found a Francis album I like more. Love to see him live sometime!
GarrettTheK Spacey and meditative. Then energetic, loopy and fun.
GarrettTheK "I'm a realist, I'm an anarchist; I'm an indecisive piece of shit." Not me - the Cribs.
GarrettTheK Beautiful Lawyers? Hmmm sounds like an oxymoron to me. No offense to any lawyers out there -

GarrettTheK Whooooah, HELLO! My words exactly when I heard the intro to this one. Great energy! Go Go Mando Diao -
GarrettTheK The intro to this one sounds like it should have been called "before amplification". But it picks up from there volume-wise if not tempo-wise. tender
GarrettTheK Who are scientists? WE are scientists, damnit. Even after hours.
GarrettTheK There's a really nasty joke about three women. I'm sure Stereolab has never heard it, let alone would they tell it.
GarrettTheK Scientists can be so condescending, the men I mean. "Go tell the women that we're leaving" indeed.
GarrettTheK Here's a woman what is a woman. Singing about four women.
