Hi Geezerette! Those fires are scary.

Did I miss funky16corners Jim Nabors tribute?
  Wed. 12/6/17 10:19pm cupcakejenny:

He’s been inconsolable all week.

Golllleeeeee....yes. Yes you did. For shame.

I played all of side one of his version of the Man of La Mancha. Everyone was in tears.

Smokin' first set, Larry. Metaphorically speaking, of course. Mrs. Parq and I are non-smokers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 10:23pm Funky16Corners:

Hey Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 10:23pm northguineahills:

In 24 hrs, my formerly destroyed cd tower will be structurally sound. I just need to append the rotating base to it, flip it (the movers crushed it while it was upside down.) (just put the last epoxy in the joins). This weekend I should be able to get rid of 5-6 boxes of cds (the boxes, not the cds). At least nothing else looks too broken (the other cd tower was slightly damaged, and a little glue but it back together), and the other cd shelves look fine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 10:24pm Funky16Corners:

I still have most of my CDs in boxes. I need to find a way to get them out so I can get at them readily
  Wed. 12/6/17 10:24pm cupcakejenny:

It’s apparently on a 1967 album with Hasta Luego? Nabors is all things to all people
  Wed. 12/6/17 10:25pm cupcakejenny:

Oy! NGH, moving is awful!
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 10:27pm still b/p:

I chafed at an obit/article author's choice to say "best known" for Gomer Pyle. Well that was true when I was in elementary school, but in the decades since, I've seen and enjoyed him plenty more in Mayberry revisits and that became a much more familiar association than the Marine base. For many others, too, I'm sure. I wanna holler in the writer's face like Sgt. Carter would at Gomer.

loved the piano tune, and linda ronstadt!

Happy Birthday John!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 10:32pm Funky16Corners:

@Still b/p - Nabors was a talented guy, but I can't think of hin without thinking of the SCTV Merv Griffith Show skit, where there was an alternative Mayberry where the role of Gomer Pyle was played by impressionist Fred TRavalena
  Wed. 12/6/17 10:32pm john mount:

ah thanks Larry!! loving the show tonight
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 10:33pm Funky16Corners:

Thank John!

Sill, the "probably best know for" curse has stalked quality (and/or cool) actors for decades.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 10:33pm northguineahills:

@cupcakejenny: That's why we procrastinate doing until living conditions get beyond tolerable!

Feliz cumpleanos john!

Well, my functioning tower has Abyssinians - Future Sound of London, so I have access to almost a third of my cds.
  Wed. 12/6/17 10:35pm john mount:

thank you! what better way to end my birthday than with some great tunes. Never can say goodbye haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 10:36pm Funky16Corners:

One of my favorite songs. I probably have ten or 12 versions
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 10:37pm still b/p:

I play the Never Can Say Goodbye sung-melody line on two strings on the acoustic guitar. It does not sound like this.

The best-known thing sets my teeth on edge...as it does for at least a few other sets of teeth among commenters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 10:38pm Funky16Corners:

I always wonder about artists that have broad careers but get their bread and butter off of one particular thing that is far from their best

Peggy...Peggy...Peggy.

My fave US 60s band along with Buffalo Springfield
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 11:02pm David W:

For no rational reason, right after the Jack Wilson track, I thought of Mose Allison in this set. (Yes I have a Chicago bias.) Then you took me away... Thanks Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:03pm Funky16Corners:

Hi David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:04pm coelacanth∅:

and i Love Peggy.
... i know little about the other Peggy, aside from the mod squad.
-was she also in the original broadway run of "hair"?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:07pm coelacanth∅:

Sledge's version of kind woman is splendid
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 11:07pm David W:

Peggy married Quincy Jones. Did he produce this?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:07pm Parq:

Can you imagine the sort of vibes Rashida Jones grew up with? I think about that a lot when I go back and re-watch her scenes from "Parks and Rec".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:08pm Funky16Corners:

She seems like a very cool person.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:09pm Funky16Corners:

@David - That Peggy Lipton LP was produced by Lou Adler. Predates her time with Quincy, I Think
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 11:13pm David W:

Thanks. And never in Hair. But Twin Peaks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:14pm Funky16Corners:

Yes indeed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:17pm coelacanth∅:

thanks David. i think i confused her name with Shelley (Sally?) Plimpton's.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

hey C! Yes, Shelley Plimpton was kind of the female lead in the original cast of HAIR. She sings FRank Mills on the soundtrack
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:19pm doctorjazz:

Funky Beatles.

Mehldau does a sweet version of MNS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:23pm Funky16Corners:

I'll have to look for that
  Wed. 12/6/17 11:24pm Dean:

On Largo, which also includes a cover of "Paranoid Android." If I didn't know it was a Radiohead tune, I'd enjoy it even more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:25pm Funky16Corners:

That sounds cool. I always dig jazz guys going out of their way to find unusual material
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:27pm doctorjazz:

Love Brad Mehldau's take as well, Dean.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:37pm doctorjazz:

The Bad Plus were known for oddball covers of rock tunes, did a great version of "Smells Like Teen Spirit"

I like Kikuchi's Piaf and Puccini. Not as outré as Nirvana, I suppose.
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 11:40pm geezerette:

Larry, this show has been like a drive up PCH on a clear,full moon night.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:41pm Funky16Corners:

That was my intention, if geographically oriented Eastward, though I supposed it should be applied to a peaceful,, happy place of your choosing.
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 11:42pm geezerette:

Hi, Doc & Dean. :)
  Wed. 12/6/17 11:42pm Dean:

Larry, exactly what we needed without knwing it. DJ magic. Thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:44pm Funky16Corners:

Did we lose transmission for a minute?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:45pm doctorjazz:

Been hearing lots of uninterrupted Paul Simon.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:46pm Funky16Corners:

Something happened and the signal dropped. It should be back up
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:46pm doctorjazz:

OOPS, my media player on the computer switched over to album files...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

I'm playing it in the app on my phone and it seems to be ok
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:48pm doctorjazz:

Nice version of Disney Girls (1957), hadn't heard it.
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 11:48pm geezerette:

Dean, we could if we drove for 20 minutes. We're fine but it's sadf or a lot of people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:48pm Funky16Corners:

This is my fave.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:48pm doctorjazz:

I heard from an acquaintance about how she and and friends used to rotate between stints as characters at Disney World and then as burlesque and exotic dancers.
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 11:50pm Jeff Ash:

We're all getting so mellow we may not be able to move after the show.
  Wed. 12/6/17 11:50pm Dean:

Have to confess that I love Art Garfunkel's Disney Girls, too.
Avatar Wed. 12/6/17 11:50pm Jeff Ash:

Which is not a bad thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:51pm coelacanth∅:

i'm still working. still moving. (even if my mind is mellow)

Do you have "disinHAIRited" - a double album of HAIR cutouts?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:55pm Funky16Corners:

I do indeed!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:56pm coelacanth∅:

is that a coincidence? (that i mention Shelley Plimpton and you're planning a hair show?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:56pm Funky16Corners:

It is both of us tapping into the zeitgeist!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:56pm Webhamster Henry:

Interesting in places, good thing they cut 'em in others!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:57pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, there are a surprising number of songs that didn't make the final cut
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 12/6/17 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

hmm, weird!
Thanks Larry!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 12/6/17 11:57pm Funky16Corners:
