I bought that can "I want more" picture disc 7" at the St. Marks Kims location when I was 18 or so. I had just discovered the first four or five records and was blown away/obbsessed. I was VERY confused by "I want more" when I got home and spun it.

@Claw!: Ha ha! @Canterbury: I've got a disco 12" with a VIOLIN solo on it with me. Should I play it?

I vote "yes."

I'm as funky as a washing line
I'm as funky as a sheep dip
I'm as funky as a spirit level
I'm as funky as Richard Branson
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 10:06am the Canterbury wood-elf:

@Joe Please do! Violin lines in disco were always far too limited (those rapid descents). And yes, ES may conjugate poorly, but they rock very very well!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/11/14 10:06am Brian in UK:

Joe got any funk bagpipes. Pibloch.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 10:08am Joe McG:

You got it, listen for the violin solo in the middle, highly unexpected!
  Thu. 12/11/14 10:09am Claw!:

Love that disco bass progression, too.
  Thu. 12/11/14 10:09am Brian:

That was indeed super funky...

Anyone remember a kids magazine in the 70's called Dynamite? This song should be it's anthem.
  Thu. 12/11/14 10:11am Brendan:

This all funked up

@Brian - you might wanna hear some Rufus Harley, but he's definitely not THIS funky.

I was actually joking, but Google isn't - Joe, you MUST track this one down!
  Thu. 12/11/14 10:15am Mark:

"Dynamite" should have been in "Rocky"--like when he's training with Apollo Creed.

Joe knows - I have Eleanor Rigby on saw. It's as awesome as you'd imagine.

How about disco ER??? Ya got that?
  Thu. 12/11/14 10:27am Mark:

This is the album with the 18 minute version of "By the Time I Get to Phoenix." "Chocolate Chip" is one of the silliest things I've ever heard. This guitar player's trying to keep it real by going all Ernie Isley/Hendrix, but it ain't workin'.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 10:28am Joe McG:

@Mark: No, actually, this is the one where he and Dionne combine "Phoenix" and "Walk On By" into an amazing medley. You're thinking of "Hot Buttered Soul."
  Thu. 12/11/14 10:29am Mark:

Oh, you're right!

Yeah, so far there is no "was" as far as the Simpsons is concerned. Maybe someday.

@Cece: Loved that elk talk. My diaphragm has never been the same.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:18am Cecile:

I know! That was the best unintentionally funny stuff I had heard in forever.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:18am Cecile:

Too bad Tony doesn't archive Tape Hiss shows. It was a doozy.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:20am Cecile:

@Roberto I just took that show for granted. Watching the years I missed just showed me that the quality dropped from amazing to merely outstanding, and there were tons of gems I missed. I couldn't gripe about that.

Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:31am Cecile:

this sounds like Skinemax "morning after" music.

Or the love theme from an 80s MST3K movie...like Clonus or Space Mutiny.

when I hear "eau de vie" I always hear Dr. Smith from Lost in Space saying it like "oh, the pain!"

Man, this new Prince track is mighty SMOOTH. It sounds like he's mellowed out a bit.

  Thu. 12/11/14 11:48am phat:

This Prince must be one of those songs I will wonder why I didn't like it at first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/11/14 11:48am DCE:

It's weird, I thought this was a Neil Diamond impersonator.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/11/14 11:50am blee:

He should just be known as The Dick.

Great show, Joe.

Neil Young impersonating Neil Diamond, now that's entertainment.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:53am Cecile:

oh, that's an interesting couple. Hannah has Asperger's and Neil might as well. sometimes
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:55am Cecile:

that would work as long as they respect each other's "do not cross" lines.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 12/11/14 11:55am Brian in UK:

I thought the reference was to Jackson Browne and DH.
Avatar Thu. 12/11/14 11:55am Peanut:

this music is quite soothing....

Nice talkin to you folks, Joe.

ooh, Crosby referred to Young's divorce as "karma" and Hannah elliptically as a "poisonous predator". interesting.
