I don't need to be tied down
Society wants to tie me down and stop living my life
I just moved out of my folks's house and am riding cross country on a painted pony.
You are a fine woman but don't tie me down and make me stop living my life. You may, however, ride my painted pony. Both literally and figuratively

Oh man I love this song and record, Joe. I was very happily surprised by it when it came out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:17am Marcel M:

I'm catching them in BK on Wed.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:18am Joe McG:

@Marcel: People tend to forget that they recorded a lot of cool stuff after 1974 or whatever!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:18am Marcel M:

@Joe: Indeed!
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:18am Cecile:

A record I reviewed about 3-4 years ago was mindbending and excellent.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:18am Marc Francis:

βrian: Woop! Can't wait. Although between all the snow melting and Joe McGaskos beautiful show - this rainy day really isn't so bad.

If you know how to knit, Faust will probably invite you to sit onstage with them.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:22am Joe McG:

@Marc: Thanks for the kind words! Glad you're enjoying the show.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:24am Cecile:

yeah, Joe, you are not tying me down or stopping me from living my life. RIGHT ON.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:25am common:

my mind is bent. hey joe and all!
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:27am βrian:

Common, when do we get a ride in that fine hooptie?
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:33am Dean:

What? Goat's Head Soup was reissued on Virgin?
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:34am Sem Chumbo:

Oh,oh, Loretta!
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:35am sue a:

holy crap i heard this on the radio last week in PA. :-)
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:35am Parq:

Never heard this Loretta. Got a really tough sound -- I could have mistaken it for a Lucinda Williams track.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:36am just dc pat:

New Loretta Lynn?
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:36am Brendan:

Great dry country wit
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:36am Joe McG:

Brand-new Loretta and sounding swell!
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:37am just dc pat:

I'll say, right on Loretta.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:37am Marc Francis:

Damned. That is one pissed off Loretta.
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:37am Dean:

Country Western lyrics are obsessed with chiasmus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:38am Mick:

That Loretta does sound great! Thanks for playing
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:38am Ear Hammer:

This set is a lot of things... I second Sem's sentiment "Oh,oh, Loretta!"
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:39am Dean:

But then so is the old Band-Aid jingle.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:41am Parq:

Dean, music is based on repetition, and so, much of it has repetition as its basis. And thanks (no sarcasm) for the vocab lesson.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:41am ChrisB.:

I love it when Country Joe drops by.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:41am Sem Chumbo:

Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:42am Cecile:

Are things going to pick up emotionally a little bit, or should I just put Dio on the the headphones and be done with it? I'm just not in a great place today, and I can certainly use a blast of "the last in line"
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:42am Cecile:

also, my dad loved this song which is messing with my head today.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:43am Cecile:

eh, I didn't need to burden you with this. Off to the Ipod.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:43am Joe McG:

@Cecile: Sorry, Cecile, no Dio here ever.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:44am common:

i'm drivin' over, brian. last in line sounds good, cecile!
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:44am Brendan:

I wonder why he chose the stage name Twitty
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:44am Dean:

Parq, repetition is indeed a crucial component of music, to my ear best analyzed and put to effect by The Fall in their eponymous "Repetition." But chiasmus is the Klein bottle of repetition, no? It keeps turning back inside itself. Not sure why Country Western lyrics get such a charge out of the form.

What a gem this is.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:45am Cecile:

no, I didn't want you to play Dio. I am just a bad mood that can't be fixed except for large doses of Dio, Priest, Kvelertak, and Torche
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:46am Ear Hammer:

patiently awaiting some kind of cover of... "she still thinks I care"
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:46am Cecile:

I'm off to the witch. Later!

i had to log back in to say: HDS!!!! priceless!!! oh cecile tell us what you think of it, i saw it last week.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:46am Marc Francis:

Oh my. Harry Dean Stanton.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:47am Mick:

This HDS is kind of amazing. Must track down the movie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:47am joe:

I had no idea the man even made music
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:48am Cecile:

Also, Joe, I'll send you a link of Ronnie's doo-wop era that will blow your mind. Doesn't sound like the same guy as all, but still fantastic singing.

@Cecile: I've played one of those, and Elf, too, but his metal stuff I can't bear.
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:50am Brendan:

Willie's guitar will die before he ever does
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:50am geegee vindaloo:

Joe, I'm signing divorce papers today and this set is making me cry!
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:51am Engineer in the booth:

Wile? Willie, the mike is on the other side of the chair. Willie, turn around, please?
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:51am Joe McG:

I'm so sorry, geegee! It will get better, I promise.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:52am just dc pat:

I haven't heard the Long Ryders since....1984?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:52am Rich in Washington:

It's kind of amusing that Harry Dean Stanton's facebook page is currently being admin'd by some - possible drunk - right wing crank hole.
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:52am Brendan:

What Joe said geegee

Bet The Hold Steady liked these dudes a lot…
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:54am geegee vindaloo:

Thanks, it's actually one of those deep beautiful moments too. (thanks!)
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:54am Joe McG:

Sorry, folks, this song sounded so good to me I'm finishing the show by playing it twice--Joe B. will be here soon!!

Freedom is freeform, Joe!

Anthology is a great 2CD Long Ryders retrospective.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:55am Roberto:

Twice is nice.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:55am Marc Francis:

We were just talking about how amazing it was!
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:56am Cliff:

I'm perfectly ok with that, Joe
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/28/16 11:56am Mick:

A-ok Joe!
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:56am Cecile:

Joe, that is A-OK. Everyone doesn't have to like everything.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:57am Joe McG:

Thanks for listening everybody! Have a great week!
  Mon. 3/28/16 11:57am Engineer in the booth:

No, Willie, it's all right, Joe really is playing the same track twice.
Avatar Mon. 3/28/16 11:57am Cliff:

Thanks for the show today!

I lament that the Drummer Stream is jockey-free midday.
