RIP, indeed. Axelrod was a goddamned genius.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:06pm JtotheK:

Hi Duane. Thanks for spinning Axelrod tunes today. I have been digging out various LPs he worked on to play around the house. Also his interview in Wax Poetics (spanning 2 issues!) was pretty great, will be re-reading.
  Wed. 2/8/17 12:07pm Christian:

AXE, he kept it raw from the first day
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:08pm bobdoesthings:

good afternoon duane and others.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:10pm Little Danny:

Hi Duane and all. Axelrod is the greatest, his two "Songs of" LPs are desert island discs for me
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:10pm kwhitehead:

I could think of no one else to do proper justice to the legacy of Mr. Aexlrod than Duane. Bring it on, sir.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:11pm kwhitehead:

erm , "Axelrod". Sorry about that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:11pm JtotheK:

Hi Danny! Both "Songs Of" are fantastic. I also really like 'Earth Rot'. I've never found a copy of 'Seriously Deep', so that one I'm not familiar with.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:12pm bobdoesthings:

oh snap
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:12pm Gordon FM:

Don't need no ticket!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:14pm ChrisB.:

The breadth of David Axelrod's career is amazing. I hope you'll visit some of his work with Beach Blanket Bingo singer Donna Loren, just for fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:14pm JtotheK:

*Note to self: give a listen to The Four King Cousins 'Introducing' ... been a while since I've listened to that LP.*
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:15pm upsetter5001:

Thank you for taking us on a trip to the AXE! RIP David Axelrod. Not too familiar with his output but I know some of his classics.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:16pm PKNY:

Going clicky-star crazy for the all of the classic Axelrod productions so far, and I don't see that stopping!
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:16pm bobdoesthings:

@pkny - SAME.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:17pm βrian:

Not me. Just enjoying the music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:17pm JtotheK:

@ChrisB -- regarding Donna Loren - her Axelrod-produced 45 '90 Day Guarantee' is a good one!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:18pm Little Danny:

Even as a huge Axelrod devotee it's crazy how many productions of his I still keep hearing. Duane played something by Pride recently and it kinda floored me
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:21pm ChrisB.:

@Jto: Oh yes! That's on her Complete Capitol Recordings comp.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:25pm Little Danny:

Goes without saying but epic set so far Duane!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:26pm Passaic River Blues:

His boundless vision is what always stunned me: beautiful but never gratuitous string arrangements, jazz approach to highlight individual parts to cohere into a whole, respect for expressive & full percussion, similar respect to the bassist as more than the plodding tertiary aspect of the rhythm section, I guess his respect for each musician (studio guys/hip rock dudes/vocalists), avoiding kitsch & melding rock-jazz-soul-cinematic soundscapes into something organic & unique, ability to shift from studio to live situations, and a readiness and enthusiasm for unusual subject matter, styles, players.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:31pm Cheri Pi:

Hey Duane, these sounds truly dazzle
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:40pm Passaic River Blues:

This is awesome.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:41pm Gaylord Fields:

Duane, you hare hitting all my David Axelrod favorites just when I need them — from Letta to McCallum to his recent Mo Wax recordings!
  Wed. 2/8/17 12:43pm Cecile:

The wrecking crew
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:44pm blee:

David Axelrod was in a league of his own. Great show, thank you, Duane.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:44pm KRYPT:

Hi Duane, Thanx for all the Axelrod he is so all over my entire music collection, he was a one of a kind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:45pm Gaylord Fields:

@JtotheK: The Four King Cousins LP, as excellent as it is, is not an Axelrod production. That was done by Lex de Azevedo, who some took as a pseudonym of Axelrod but is his own man (and a member of the King Family himself).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:50pm Little Danny:

One o' my fave Axelrod obscurities is a '64 Capitol 45 by the Vulcanes; "Moon Probe" is a surf-y guitar instro but with a majestic arrangement and sense of physical space like only Axe could do
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:51pm Gaylord Fields:

And we haven't even visited Mister Lou Rawls yet!
  Wed. 2/8/17 12:51pm Slaboch:

Killer show Duane! Keep it up!
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 12:54pm ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Just getting on board the train. Greetings everyone!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:55pm Ken From Hyde Park:

"Station stop is Lou Rawls."
  Wed. 2/8/17 12:58pm Agent Peter:

Ladies and gentlemen....Lou Rawls!
  Wed. 2/8/17 12:58pm daneebwoy:

Aiiiight!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:59pm Little Danny:

this Little Willie John, wow
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:59pm Gaylord Fields:

The tracks Axelrod did with H.B. Barnum as arranger especially hit the sweet spot for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 12:59pm Leonardo:

Good to be in the right place at the right time.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:03pm Marc Francis:

This is all so fantastic Duane!
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:03pm coelacanth∅:

greetings Duane and all

dig this Lou Rawls
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:11pm Little Danny:

I never noticed how "Everything Counts" cribs from his earlier "Holy Thursday" before
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:12pm coelacanth∅:

general confessional>holy thursday>everything counts = one complete suite.
(in that order)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:23pm chris:

listening to Letta Mbulu sing is the aural equivalent to getting a super long, tight snuggle hug from gramma. deep love and respect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:24pm chris:

and hi, Duane and fellow passengers!
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:26pm Duane:

Hello Chris and all fellow Passsengers..finally had a moment to come up for air! Hope you're enjoying the show!
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:26pm Slick Goldtooth:

Always doing a tribute right on this program. Good stuff
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:27pm bobdoesthings:

my favorite track by Letta Mbulu is "mahalela" - was that Axelrod too? off the album "Letta"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:29pm JtotheK:

@GaylordFields -- re: Four King Cousins - wow, thanks for correcting! As you mentioned - I had read/heard it was produced by him under a pseudonym.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:30pm Duane:

Good one bob! That track was actually produced by Hugh Masekela..no small slouch either!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:30pm Little Danny:

Great album bobdoesthings but that wasn't an Axelrod thing
  Wed. 2/8/17 1:30pm Cecile:

Midnight Love on the Duane Trrain.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:30pm bobdoesthings:

Ah thanks @duane / @little danny - this is why I love FMU.. music education. Thanks.
  Wed. 2/8/17 1:33pm Cecile:

Either that or Paint Your Wagon
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:34pm Gaylord Fields:

@JtotheK: An understandable misconception, considering the name and production similarities of the two Capitol producers. I'm sure de Azevedo was paying close attention to what his cohort Axe was doing.
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:36pm coelacanth∅:

and holy thursday first appeared on "release of an oath", as i said earlier.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:41pm Gaylord Fields:

Thanks for showing the Axe love, Duane!
Avatar Wed. 2/8/17 1:50pm Duane:

Absolutely gaylord! Thanks for lending those discerning ears:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 1:59pm Passaic River Blues:

Love those melodic Bavarians.
  Wed. 2/8/17 2:00pm Cecile:

Now is the time on the Duane Train when we dance.

I'll unlurk too. Really enjoyed tonight's show. Cheers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 2/8/17 2:50pm Passaic River Blues:

Oh man, now dreaming about a fanfic zine about the summer of 1983 when, in this better imagined world, Sylvester and Spicoli lived and partied together in a cabin in Big Sur.

gotta run, great show! Thanks Duane!
