Some Red Rhodes for Woof
  Mon. 4/23/18 6:10pm Warner in PDX:

Great stuff so far! Thanks Andrew.

Thanks, Warner!
  Mon. 4/23/18 6:13pm Steve Bonilla:

Love this tune.
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:14pm cometothesunshine:

Me too, Steve
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:20pm mce1965:

I think that bit of studio talk included on the Notorious Byrd Brothers CD with Ush gently exhorting the difficult personalities in the studio to just cut the crap and play gives such an insight into his genius as a producer
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:22pm cometothesunshine:

His brilliance was definitely how to operate behind the scenes with difficult people
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:22pm mce1965:

exactly
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:26pm mce1965:

And may I say that if it was not for the much maligned CD format, that bit never would have been made available to the masses... but I digress
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/23/18 6:27pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...loving everything as a Podcast!
Thank Always for this beautiful, generous Program.

Thanks RR 11/63

Welcome Karen S
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:29pm cometothesunshine:

True genius
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:30pm mce1965:

nice edit!
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:31pm mce1965:

such a gorgeous song
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:32pm cometothesunshine:

this is such an unbelievable production - the LP version is nowhere near as great
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:32pm cometothesunshine:

I have the original songwriting demo and it is even more eerie
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:33pm KarenS:

Was that the A side?
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:33pm cometothesunshine:

No, the Bside
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:34pm cometothesunshine:

Chris Hillman was the best songwriter in the Byrds on Younger Than Yesterday
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:34pm cometothesunshine:

Gene Clark level excellence!
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:34pm mce1965:

amen
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:35pm mce1965:

out of nowhere too
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:36pm cometothesunshine:

This song is so amazing too
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:37pm mce1965:

Hard to fault much on this album
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:38pm cometothesunshine:

Gary Usher was brilliant at bringing introspection to tape for all to hear.
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:39pm mce1965:

I'm glad you included this... it's not out of place at all
  Mon. 4/23/18 6:41pm Steve Bonilla:

Atypical chord progression.
  Mon. 4/23/18 6:45pm Steve Bonilla:

I hear hints of Sacramento in this song.
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:46pm cometothesunshine:

He was really developing his production chops at Decca
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:49pm cometothesunshine:

Gary recorded 3 45's with 11-year-old Keith Green.
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:51pm mce1965:

It's really surprising none of his work for Decca was even a semi hit... probably down to Decca's inability to properly promote non-MOR and country singles
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:52pm cometothesunshine:

He did not produce many hits period, but was good at talking people into letting him make great records
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:57pm cometothesunshine:

More Red Rhodes
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 6:59pm cometothesunshine:

Another great record with no radio play
  Mon. 4/23/18 7:01pm Warner in PDX:

Really knows how to record voices and harmonies.
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:01pm cometothesunshine:

I would like to have played 5 more songs in this genre - the Dal Perkins single should have been in this show
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:02pm cometothesunshine:

yes, perfectly mixed
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/23/18 7:04pm Dominick:

Made it!
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:05pm cometothesunshine:

welcome, Dominick!
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:05pm KarenS:

Did Gary ever work with the Raiders?
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:05pm cometothesunshine:

Well, he repurposed their "Louise" for Keith Allison
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:08pm KarenS:

I guess they were comfortable sticking with Terry Melcher.
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:10pm cometothesunshine:

unlike the byrds
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:11pm mce1965:

and Manson
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:12pm cometothesunshine:

sure
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:13pm mce1965:

Absolutely wonderful show, Andrew... you outdid yourself. Wish I could chat more but will listen via mobile
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:13pm cometothesunshine:

thanks MCE
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:18pm Sonny Rickles:

Tuned in late but I'm loving what I'm hearing! The playlist looks incredible!
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:19pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, Sonny! Welcome!
  Mon. 4/23/18 7:22pm Steve Bonilla:

I've been monitoring, but it's dinner time here in B'klyn, so I couldn't blab much.
  Mon. 4/23/18 7:23pm Michael Luciano:

So many great songs nobody ever heard! These days it's the opposite - There are no great songs to hear...
  Mon. 4/23/18 7:24pm Steve Bonilla:

This song got me curious to check out Jazz, because if Hugh Masakela's involvement,
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/23/18 7:30pm Rich in NC:

Nice set, thanks
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:32pm cometothesunshine:

thanks!
  Mon. 4/23/18 7:36pm Warner in PDX:

One great show Andrew, spotlighting a great era for our music. Thanks!
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:37pm cometothesunshine:

I appreciate that, Warner!
  Mon. 4/23/18 7:37pm synchro1:

Paxton Quigley - great song from a pretty poor movie. A favorite of mine; great program
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:37pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, synchro!
  Mon. 4/23/18 7:44pm synchro1:

and where is this version of Draft Morning from? It's wonderful! - Jim Whittemore (didn't realize I was on here as synchro1,too many online registrations)
  Mon. 4/23/18 7:45pm Steve Bonilla:

Great Bob Lind song!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 4/23/18 7:49pm myron feld:

That Beverly Williams song was an also-ran for the Rhino "One Kiss Can Lead to Another" comp, but it absolutely should've been included.
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:52pm cometothesunshine:

It is a great one for sure
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:56pm cometothesunshine:

I really want to thank you all for listening to one of my favorite shows of the past 12 years!
  Mon. 4/23/18 7:56pm Steve Bonilla:

Thank you, Andrew, for a great show.
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:57pm Woof:

Thank you, Andrew!!! Fantastic show!
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:58pm cometothesunshine:

The bookend to my Curt Boettcher show of 8 years ago. So glad I found the time and space to work this up. See you all soon. I will be DJing with my WFMU buddies in Brooklyn this weekend at the record fair. So long!
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:58pm KarenS:

One of your best ever!! Thank you Andrew!
Avatar Mon. 4/23/18 7:59pm cometothesunshine:
