  1. OK, I admit it... I totally forgot my user name here, so I hadn't come back in a while, and then I decided to try my name... HAHAHA. It worked. And it was David WILD, not David FRICKE who tweeted that about the album being the album of the year (1968) ... and he LOVES it. I promise. We spoke on the phone the other day and he was RAVING. Long time no see, EC-people. Hope you're all well, and will spring for this new album when it comes out on Valentines Day MN
  2. my second favorite male vocalist is Barenaked Ladies former front man, Steven Page. my favorite is Burton Cummings.
  3. we had Tom Petty, Paul McCartney, Jeff Lynne and George's son Dhani on hand for the festivities. A LOT of very creepy old people were lingering around every corner. It was weird
  4. Greatest Hits repackages aside, I'll go with the whole SURFS UP, SUNFLOWER era...
  5. http://www.davidfary.com/the_black_beatles.htm always a favorite
  6. "We May Never Pass This Way Again" is Seals and Crofts, which was JIM Seals, not Dan...
  7. ah, no wonder i sit at my desk every day NOT hearing that "popping sound."
  8. Tommy joined me (and a few friends) at Sparks at UCLA on Saturday night, where they performed their new album (Exotic Creatures Of The Deep) and a classic album (Kimono My House) as well as about a half-dozen other songs from their past. Great show. And, it was a kick to see him (TK) so excited listening to the old stuff. I had a blast. I was at Bearsville for the first two albums (in fact, they were Halfnelson the first time we released the first album...) and so for me it was a homecoming, as I got a chance to say hi to them for the first time in about 35 years.
  9. back in the day, they didn't do research records would have lasted longer then too... chart methodology is different now as well. in those days, top 40 radio played "oldies" too... now they are called "recurrents." It's different now, but it would have been the same then.
  10. anyone know a Sweet song called "It's Lonely Out There" --- One of those odd records I heard on "Rate-A-Record" on Bandstand that I never remembered who the artist was, and then once the internet happened, I googled it and found out it was The Sweet, but it's pretty obscure, and not on Bell (was on 20th Century here in the states.)
  11. I liked the Jewish tribute band Matzoh Hoople. (rimshot) But seriously folks, they had a whole slew of albums no one paid much attention to on Atlantic prior to them moving to Columbia and hitting hard with All The Young Dudes, and then Mott... I remember the double bill of MTH and Lou Reed at the Felt Forum... AMAZING show.
  12. yeah, it's not like some people we all know and love haven't been publicly embarrassed recently...
  13. "Maggie" by REDBONE did reasonably well. I remember them doing it on television (Bandstand?) and it was the predecessor to Witch Queen. I also fell for "Wovoka," "Suzi Girl," "One More Time," and "We Were All Wounded At Wounded Knee." -- all 45s on Epic.
  14. (I'm rather good at hockey trivia myself,) and loved when the Flames had both Pat Ribble and GORD WAPPEL... Only a few games, but it was fun to see Ribble and Wappel on the blueline.
  15. not available yet for the BlackBerry STORM...
  16. Worst song in musical history is Charlene's "I've Never Been To Me" we can end the debate now
  17. Ah, there are so many... but I'll give you this 60s nugget and then think about some subsequent 70s and 80s gems to post. P.S. The Rubinoos do a GREAT cover of "If My Car Could Only Talk" and between the Rubes and Lou, I try to listen to that song almost every day. It's just the greatest. Here's a great clip of a mostly forgotten 45, even if I did hear it on KRTH the other day. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Kau2lSTZZo
  18. THE EXPLORERS CLUB Loft Session will debut on: Monday, December 22nd at 12noon (eastern). It will also play during that week the following times: (all times eastern) Monday 12/22: 8:00pm Wednesday 12/24: 2:00pm Friday 12/26: 3:00am Monday 12/29: 1:00am Monday 01/05: 2:00am Sirius XM Satellite Radio Sirius 29 / XM-50 The Loft Please post & plug wherever and whenever you can, website, myspace, etc. Thanx! P.S. Each song will also go into regular "session song" rotation soon.
  19. I'm all for their great unheralded, unplayed single "Spinning The Wheel With The One You Love."
  20. (I Didn't Mean To) Break Your Heart - Barenaked Ladies
  21. Pickles Mustard Lima Beans Peas Cilantro Coffee Liver Bleu Cheese (that's about it for me, I think... won't eat those things.)
  22. Release dates are generally on Tuesdays... maybe Wal-Mart didn't notice the ad campaign using the 10-20 date, and didn't want to violate street date... It's most probably there today. I know at last night's Kings game (hockey) they gave copies away to a few people in a section way up high...
  23. Personally, I'd replace The Replacements with The Hollies...
  24. Although the horse is quite dead, here's a great article (save for the photo of the Guess Who) about the 10 biggest omissions from the RRHOF. Of course, Raspberries fans, your mileage may vary http://www.gibson.com/en-us/Lifestyle/Features/10-artists-who-should-be-in/
  25. I always thought if Cynthia Nixon didn't want to do the Sex And The City movie, Clay would have been a perfect replacement, and 90% of the people wouldn't have known the difference.
