Thanks Bentagle!

I've always been a fan of early Walsh/James Gang tuneage... Hence the reason I recognized it!

We taught those British a thing or two about leaving unions!
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 3:36am Jeff Conklin:

@Simon: I wanted to make that joke but considering how strong this show's UK fanbase is, I skipped it.

Notice that I avoided any insulting epithets.

Wow, collecting firecracker packaging is a thing!

The guy who just delivered our groceries: "Oo, what is this? I like this". Showed him on the app and he's going to look it up when he gets home.
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 3:47am Jeff Conklin:

@Bentangle: Nice! You must have it playing pretty loud?
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 3:53am greysquad:

Need to know what your customer is listening to while your delivering groceries? There's an app for that!
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 3:54am greysquad:

Ios compatible, too!
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 3:57am Jeff Conklin:

How is everyone listening tonight? If you have a stereo set up, I'd love to see a picture. You can upload here: imgur.com
  Mon. 7/4/16 3:58am Listener Bryan (the Professor):

Digging this Steve Hillage. New to me.
  Mon. 7/4/16 3:59am Listener Bryan (the Professor):

@jeff speakers in my office. hardly a stereo set up. but i wish i were using headphones tbh.
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 3:59am Jeff Conklin:

(because im a gear nerd, vintage especially)
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 4:00am Jeff Conklin:

@Bryan: Me too :(

I wince when i think people tune in and listen on laptop speakers.
  Mon. 7/4/16 4:02am Listener Bryan (the Professor):

@jeff -- well i do at least have actual speakers plugged into the computer. But they're not a huge improvement.
  Mon. 7/4/16 4:04am josh:

Morning to all.

Normally I'd be listening on headphones but I set up some cheap-yet-surprisingly-competent speakers in my office at the weekend.
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 4:05am Bentangle:

I'm listening on a mini-system in the kitchen. When I'm not cooking it's the stereo in the lounge. I've got my girlfriend into your show, it's a Monday night tradition here.
  Mon. 7/4/16 4:06am John in Texas:

Happy 4th Everyone! Jeff, I'm listening at work via the WFMU app on my iPhone. Sorry to make you wince, but at least I'm tuned in and listening.
  Mon. 7/4/16 4:07am KP:

Hey, Jeff
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:08am pacific standard simon:

Just the old computer with headphones, to avoid waking the roomies. Hoping to have some nice speakers once I get a solo apartment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:11am Wynford Eagle:

Morning Jeff. Love Steve Hillage, check Julian Cope's review of the album, so good - www.headheritage.co.uk... Julian has done a massive amount of research in compiling this archive. Great show.
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 4:13am greysquad:

I usually listen on headphones, and occasionally listen on my harmon/kardon stereo speakers (depends on whether the spacemates are around or not), but tonight, I'm listening on (I hate to say it) on amazon echo bluetooth speaker (catsiitting for a friend). And I gotta say it's totally awesome to tell your speaker what to play... very HAL 2000
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:13am pacific standard simon:

My small town is always overwhelmed by tourists on holidays. Escaping the big city, I suppose.
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 4:19am Jeff Conklin:

Morning, Wynford. Yeah I've read his site on ocassion
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:20am pacific standard simon:

It would be kinda cool to run the sound from my computer through a tube amp. Probably cost a few Benjamins, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:22am pacific standard simon:

Or maybe only a Benjamin and a half:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:27am pacific standard simon:

Tried anything like this, Jeff?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:31am pacific standard simon:

Holy smoke, the old McIntosh amps really run to big bucks on ebay!
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 4:33am Jeff Conklin:

@Simon: I haven't. My roommate got an old Fisher tube amp cheap about a year ago and we use that in the living room. Sounds real nice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:35am pacific standard simon:

Next item on my list is a turntable so I can listen to the remains of my record collection again. After that, who knows...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:40am pacific standard simon:

When I was a wee sprout, we had a Garrard turntable and a tube amp that fed a pair of speakers that my father built himself. The amp was replaced by something more modern before I was old enough to distinguish between brands.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:41am joeray:

I usually listen to the Avant Ghetto at work so I am limited to Apple headphones since I have to wear very open-air and portable headphones while at work. When I re-listen to archives of this show I listen on Klipsch LaScalas, Fi X single ended tube triode amp. I also have original Quad ESL's that are very finicky in terms of amplification, so I am waiting to repair the Quad 22 amps that work so well with them. I would love to listen to archives of the Avant Ghetto on them, especially the acoustic sets, since electrostatic speakers in general and original Quads in particular reproduce vocals and acoustic guitars with a magical quality. Still, the musical point gets across with my cheap Apple headphones!
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 4:43am Jeff Conklin:

Those earbuds never stayed in my ears which im thankful for.
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 4:44am the Canterbury wood-elf:

I appear to have (for once) tuned in at the right moment. But is this the beginning or end of "Out-Bloody-Rageous" i wonder? This album is the Canterbury pinnacle...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:45am joeray:

Love Third!!!
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 4:45am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Yeah! i get to hear the whole thing! Great looking setlist Jeff. I love that Hillage album (should really be attributed to Hillage-Giraudy as Miquette wrote/played equally on it, but Virgin Records weren't into that).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 7/4/16 4:47am pacific standard simon:

I'll go with the first album in regard to pinnacle-tude.
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 4:52am Sem Chumbo:

Good morning, Jeff, and hello to the Avanti wherever you might be,
  Mon. 7/4/16 4:55am John in Texas:

Hugh Hopper!
  Mon. 7/4/16 4:56am stupid:

thank god for jeffs show and thank god for empty weekends in the city
  Mon. 7/4/16 5:00am Stefan:

@Jeff, I have to listen via the internet & earphones; at home, I play the archives viaa (verry modest standard) stereo amplifyer & speakers or via an internet-radio with an additional speaker - we are sharing as a family of four a 3-room flat and simply do not have much room, listening to music has to fit in. I grew up with a radio and still cherish the experience of personally curated shows (@Guido form Cologne: you might have as well enjoyed the 80ies WDR1 station, BFBS and BBC); But the internet is also a trove: Matching Mole performing "Gloria Gloom"(Bill MacCormick) and "Part of the Dance"(Phil Miller), live on the French TV program "Rockenstock" in 1972
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 5:05am the Canterbury wood-elf:

In fact, Soft Machine toured with Hendrix in '68, before they'd even recorded the first album. Hendrix was dead by the time Third came out. Wyatt, Ayers and Ratledge were all incredibly self-deprecating about their work, so I wouldn't take their dismissive remarks at face value. There's a bootleg from Davenport, Iowa from that tour and it's one of the most mindblowing things you'll ever hear (if you can listen through the appalling sound quality). And I've heard from people who saw that tour and were completely transformed by the Soft Machine. I can imagine certain minds weren't quite ready for it though...
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 5:07am Jeff Conklin:

Ah, I should never speak again.

thanks for the correction.
  Mon. 7/4/16 5:16am JoeRay:

Then there's Hendrix opening for the Monkees! A mismatch if there ever was one.
  Mon. 7/4/16 5:39am :

good music w morning coffee ! akways conklin!!!!
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 5:42am Bentangle:

Greatly enjoyed all the Elkhorn tracks you've played on the show so far. Will definitely pick up the record when it drops.
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 5:46am Jeff Conklin:

@Betangle: I've only played two so far including this one. Its a tape/digital thing i believe
  Mon. 7/4/16 5:47am Ajay:

kickstart the day the Conklin way. Another enlightening show....thnx man

Right, seemed like more, nevertheless thanks for the tip-off!
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 5:58am Sem Chumbo:

Thanks, JC, much appreciated. See you next time.
Avatar Mon. 7/4/16 5:59am Jeff Conklin:

Thanks, everybody. Have a great week. See you down the road....
