A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

  Thu. 8/3/17 9:37am Mark Williams:

@Trouble - it's the same cut as the original 1975. You have a more recent pressing (not sure if it's a boot or not) by a label that is just putting songs that were never paired together originally. DJ culture reissue, in other words.
  Thu. 8/3/17 9:38am dfb:

start every set with it !
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 9:40am Itzall Ablurr:

Regarding today's minimalist/abstract artwork- I'm seeing a hockey skirmish with the guy on the lower right heading down ice after bowling over the guy up top, who appears to also be a Pittsburgh Penguin. Go Jaromir! Also, may I have one more large coffee, please?...
  Thu. 8/3/17 9:40am Mark Williams:

also, I think it might've been a take on an earlier reggae song by Carlton & the Shoes, but I need to listen closely again to see if I'm right. Have a listen yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4M3b1UhIzc
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 9:42am Sem Chumbo:

Oh, yeah. What a groove.

Chain and the Gang :)
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 9:51am The Oscar:

I remember a PBS spot a few years ago that used the Clash's version of this to promote their weekly schedule (for the "Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday" bit). It was a little surreal to hear "Police On My Back" over clips of Arthur.
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 9:51am Trouble:

merci! @michele!

Trouble/Listeners: do you know whether your premium has been sent out yet?
  Thu. 8/3/17 10:03am Mark Williams:

@Trouble - no no, i meant it's the original version of the dub. sorry for the confusion.
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 10:04am The Oscar:

For years I couldn't figure out why Jonathan Richman named his clearly-not-reggae instrumental "Egyptian Reggae." Then I heard this, and my mind was blown.

Trouble on the waves!
Avatar Thu. 8/3/17 10:06am Passaic River Blues:

@Adrian: I don't know if it's been mailed but McGasko and Daddy Garbage have played songs from it, so it seems it should be in the post soon enough. Looking forward to it.

@Passaic Thanks. I'll be patient. *Is not patient*

Greetings, you wonderful awful damn dirty hippies! This Alice Coltrane is lovely. How dare she try to elevate my consciousness into the new age! I'm outraged about how my mind's eye is floating in outer space right now. Ooo, look, it's Neptune!

thanks @waking bacon. we certainly need all the blessings we can get right now...

@PRB: I do indeed know Lisbon Wines! It's down the street from Oporto Wines. My wife likes tasty, no frills stuff from the Douro Valley. However, as I never have any idea what I'm talking about, I appreciate the guys in Lisbon ever ready to help me out.
