    AUGUST LEWSLETTER... Sorry for the late delivery on this, but we had to wait until I got the okay from Eric to release this, but here's the news that we've been waiting for...ERIC IS RECORDING A NEW CD... It is an album similar to the stuff Weird Al Yankovic does AND material that is age sensitive/relatable to his fan base.but autobiographical in nature, and I've got a preview of some of the tunes and/or their titles... The first song will be a parody of the old Mary MacGregor song, "Torn Between Two Drummers",, "Torn between two drummers, Feeling like a fool, Jim Bonfanti’s my old friend, But Mike McBride is cool"... The next two songs are both tributes to Leo sayer and EC would only tell me the titles: The 1st of the Sayer songs is a somber ode to a physical altercation that Eric had with Wally called "When I Kneed You". The 2nd Sayer number was written for a visit to his doctor for a colonoscopy called, "You Make Me Feel Like Depantsing"... And some updated rewrites of some Berries’ and solo stuff that are relevant to his fan base... TUNES INCLUDE... GOITER ALL THE WAY I WANNA PEE WITH YOU which combines with (medley style) THE WAY WE USED TO PEE... OVERNIGHT OBSERVATION(Want a pacemaker, yea...) which includes the lyrics... ”well, I know it’s not funny, I don’t care about the money too, I don’t need no medication, Dont have no gallstones or the flu. I just need a pace maker,(yea)”...In my opinion, really beautiful lyrics... HARD TO GET OVER A HEART ATTACK WHERE’S MY ROCKER NO HARD FEELINGS( no rewrite necessary) DRIVIN’ AROUND (with my turn signal on) I DONT KNOW WHAT I WANT(for lunch) DROOLING ON MYSELF I CANT REMEMBER LOST IN THE SHUFFLEBOARD And The CD closes with Eric’s last new recording and his ode to facelifts and Botox, BRAND NEW REAR... ODDS AND ENDS DEPT. Now that the revamped "Dallas" tv series has run its course and deemed a success, the re-booting of another old series starring Clive Davis is being considered..."Touched By An A**Hole. After a recent show in Cleveland the other nite, Jim Bonfanti was photgraphed backstage with the Def Leppard drummer...One and a half of the most rockinist guys ever... Speaking of Jim, his wife Barb is fronting a new all female rock band and she will going by her maiden name "Wired".. WOW... I saw a picture of Ira recently and he looks great... I called to ask him how he lost so much weight and he was willing to share the secret...It seems that it is an old Jewish diet and it goes like this...(I’ve posted this before but Ira swears it really works so I am posting it again...) For the first course: A nice fish salad with a bed of lettuce and ample toppings of "gefilte" and "yom kippers"... The main course consists of 4 oz. of Gaza Strip sirloin... Wash this all down with a bottle of Jewish Beer "He-Brew" or a cup of green tea, "Cream with two mishuggena's(or however the heck you spell it)... If that's not enough, you can have your choice of desserts, either "Hot Apple Passover " or three pieces of "Mazel-Toffee". And a glass of Bobby V-8 juice... XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Finally, If Eric goes on the road again, he is considering one of two opening acts...He will let fans vote for the group that should get the honors: Bernie and the Folding Forum..(Bernie will not be singing but will stand at the microphone and give us reasons why he will pull the plug...)...Bernie wont sing due to the harsh criticisms his last karaoke performance of the Lionel Ritchie hit ”SAY YOU, SAY ME, SAYERVILLE” received... JAMES AND HIS HAREM...(James will not be singing either, but instead, will be reading his defense testimony as Panamanian Police have found some underage 19 year old girls in his collection...(In America, 19 is older than 18, therefore , acceptable...but in a backwards country,like Panama, 19 is considered younger than 18...)... AND HOW WAS YOUR MONTH... Quote

    Matt, both are great drummers and each brought a lot to the band. If you want to hear Jim playing "Overnight Sensation" all of the reunion recordings should have it!

    Brad Delp was great—gone too soon (he died in 2007). He was from up this way, in Peabody, Mass., and was a noted Beatles fanatic. I know it's not the "coolest" Boston song to like, but this one's my favorite.

    @LC Bee Gees 1st is a great Beatlesque psychedelic pop album. Other than the several big hits that are on it there are lots of succulent nuggets like this....

    Get "Bulletin Board" by The Partridge Family (their final album from late 1973). The song "Alone Too Long" reminds me of Daryl Hall & John Oates. Speaking of Hall & Oates, they did a song called "Alone Too Long" (from the self - titled RCA album in 1975). Blood, Sweat & Tears also covered "Roller Coaster" (featuring lead singer Jerry Fisher) (from 1973 "No Sweat") which was also done by singer songwriter Mark James also on Bell Records. Also Rod Stewart covered "Oh No, Not My Baby" also in late 1973. Finally, Barry Mann did the original "I Heard You Singing Your Song" (from 1972 "Lay It All Out" album). Problem is that "Bulletin Board" is available on itunes.

    Received and am listening to Badfinger´s "Straight Up" (one of Lew´s top 5) and Partridge Family´s "Sound Magazine" (in Paul´s list). Both are strong but I need to listen more before opining in a thorough way. But what does come to mind listening to "Sound Magazine" is that these songs are not teeny bop, they are brilliant pop tunes, produced, played and sung at a very high level. It´s too bad this band got pigeonholed into a "joke and" / a "not cool band". People would do themselves a favor to get underneath the need to be "cool" and listen to this stuff. It´s incredibly strong. Will now go out and buy more from the Partridge Family.

    Music is one powerful medium. It has the power to transport the listener back in space and time to another world, a world gone by. Everyone has a song that reminds them of a certain someone. Today I heard J. D. Souther, and I instantly thought of my high school crush, Wayne. What song reminds you of someone who was close to your heart?
  38. 2 points
    "You´re only lonely" by J.D Souther is a good one. Reminds me of sophmore year, college, University of South Florida, being drunk more often than sober. Ironically my friends from those days, most of whom I haven´t seen in 40 years, .....we´re right now planning a get together likely in October. Great guys. Can´t wait. I haven´t had a drink since 1996 so hopefully I´ll fit in!!! :-) Nice thread Susie. James

    I am a big fan of Lindsey but am remiss in that I haven’t listened to any of his solo material, only the FM albums I own. I think he’s so great because everything he does is in service to making the song better. It’s not ostentatious or self-aggrandizing. ”You Make Loving Fun” is a good example. All those little fills are ingenious and really make the song better.

    David Cassidy 1975 RCA album "The Higher They Climb....The Harder They Fall" as All Music website calls it his best album of his career. Danny Bonaduce also gave it big during the last days of David TV special on A&E but people did not heard it because it did NOT charted in the Billboard Top 200 Album Charts & a failure!! My opinion, "Rock Me Baby" is my favorite from David from 1972!! Yes, The Partridge Family "Sound Magazine" I think is the best album which I got & heard for the very first time on a sealed Ampex 8 track tape back in February of 1978 back then. The song "One Night Stand" was co written by Paul Anka!!

    On a side note (or, actually, getting back to the point of Don's thread), I bought and received the LP. Awesome... as a collectible. I probably would have resisted if not for Don's thread. But I'm glad I have it.... Great item! Thanks, Donzi!

    PaulMaul! Great list, and it's extremely cool to see you chime in. I totally buy in to Revolver... on a lot of days, it's my favorite Beatles album, hands-down. Yet... I didn't have it on my first five list OR my second-five list. I don't know the Bee Gees First record but now I need to check it out....

    Hard to believe this announcement of the new bulletin board here was 17 years ago! Seventeen—really? Yep—that's when Bernie opened the doors of this fun and lively and info-packed board. Well, maybe "lively" is overstating it these days.... It's disappointing to see the traffic slipping to its current level. What would we do without the soldiers who keep on keepin' on? I still have the same avatar I adopted when I joined, which was around 2004. I think lurked for a few years before that, and the reunion drew me out of the woodwork. :-)

    I think I'd replace all my Raspberries and Eric Carmen albums because even though I'm a music fan those ones are probably more important to me than anything else in my music collection-Tammy Quick
