Hi Dave Rh!!
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 9:59pm Bruce S.:

Time for a reappraisal of Elvis's movies!
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:00pm Bruce S.:

Elvis was really really great
  10:00pm The Butterman:

I blame that no good Colonel Tom Parker, that’s who.
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:01pm Bruce S.:

I'm starting to realise that now
  10:01pm The Butterman:

This darn covid has really put a damper on smorgasbords
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:02pm Bruce S.:

I just cant get enough of that bit
  10:03pm garlic lover:

I’m a big fan of that introduction montage .. killer ending

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm dave miss:

The “s” on the end is killin me! LOL
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Bruce S.:

where the hell do you dig these records up from?
  10:15pm BH:

Colonel Parker insisting he's from West Virginia and not Holland, and having it work for decades, was an amazing feat. It did limit Elvis' opportunities a little
  10:21pm Robm:

@BH always wondered why elvis never did any over seas tour’s
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:23pm Bruce S.:

Whats the best Elvis bio to read?
Avatar 🙉 10:27pm Wild Honey:

@bruce S - Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love by Peter Guralnick are the best Elvis bios
  10:27pm KWilde:

Guralnick books are great
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:29pm Bruce S.:

Thanks alot Wild Honey and KWilde
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:30pm Bruce S.:

Fats Waller -He died so young
  10:30pm longish:

Not sure. I’d avoid the Griel Marcus 2-vol set, though. That guy makes the most salacious stuff read like Wonder Bread.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm dave miss:

Like wonder bread, bananas, peanut butter and bacon?
  10:33pm longish:

Oops, meant Guralnick, not Marcus. Thorough but dull.
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:36pm Bruce S.:

I havent read Greil Marcus in years
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:38pm Bruce S.:

I like lester Bangs and Robert Christgue for sayin alot with few words
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm mariano:

Fietje!
  10:39pm fietje:

Hello everybody!
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:40pm Bruce S.:

I should read Greil again though because I'm not sure I got him the first time
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:42pm Bruce S.:

Great version of stealin
  10:44pm longish:

My view of Marcus, Guralnick and Robert Christgau was informed by unholy opinions expressed in Kicks! magazine 30 years ago!
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:45pm Bruce S.:

Hi fietje
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Bruce S.:

I wish you could tell me more longish
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Bruce S.:

You know Cher's records are not really bad
  10:48pm PJ:

Who knew Cher was into the Kinks?
J/K - Some producer (Sonny?) probably told her to sing it, and she did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48pm Matt Fiveash:

Aaay Dave you sound good tonight! (Harry Harrison snuffling noises)
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:49pm Bruce S.:

Or not bad really
  10:49pm PJ:

Primo Dr. John too? Somebody give that A&R man a raise!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49pm dave miss:

Shite. I missed Fietje. I was watching the Thriller video.
  10:50pm phat in Lincoln:

So, how the hell did Cher get ahold of "I Go to Sleep" in 1965? Looking it up the Applejacks put it out the same year. Huh.
  10:50pm longish:

L-U-V this Cher set.
Avatar 🙉 10:51pm TheManWhoLaughs:

The Tiny Tim cover of I Got You Babe is about the best Cher related song I can think of
  10:51pm Miles:

Davies' demo was shopped around, he was hit makin commodity
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Bruce S.:

Cher's material is usually really catchy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm goldenrules:

that "I Go to Sleep" song blew my mind. it seems to be in the same vein as the inspiration for some of Zappa's musical pastiche on his 60s albums.
  10:53pm phat in Lincoln:

@Miles I love how demos made the rounds across the ocean in those days.
  10:54pm Miles:

I believe Peggy Lee also did "Sleep" or a similar Ray Davies ballad. he was proud of his association w her. Sonny & Cher also did th Kinks song Set Me Free
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 10:55pm Bruce S.:

Cher always sounds sincere but not overly sincere
  10:55pm Vertual:

Did Phil Spector push the buttons on the early Cher songs?
  10:55pm PJ:

@phat: It worked both ways, Fairport Convention was amazed to be sent all these unreleased Dylan songs for consideration when they started recording.
  10:58pm johnk77:

the drummer on cher's version
of guilded splinters died:<
https://www.al.com/news/2021/05/swampers-drummer-muscle-shoals-sound-studio-cofounder-roger-hawkins-has-died.html
  10:58pm Vertual:

i guess when she sang backup with Ronettes.
  10:59pm Miles:

Cher's 60s records are great as are the duo's. as a matter of fact I just picked up Sonny's album Inner Views ('68?) a couple days ago which has some great psychedelic stuff. Sinatra of course did BANG BANG
  11:00pm Miles:

I think Sonny who had essentially studied under Phil just emulated Spectors production style
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Bruce S.:

Cher was able to star contemporary for like 40 years
  11:04pm PJ:

I just found out that Fred Silverman, who gave the world Pink Lady & Jeff, as well as Supertrain, a series about a nuclear powered train (think the "Love Boat" on rails) which nearly bankrupted NBC, was the guy who approached Sonny & Cher to do a TV show, which forever will be my Ur-Variety Show.
  11:05pm coscobbob:

That was a very educational intro you gave to this song, Dave. I learn a lot from your show and WFMU
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Bruce S.:

PJ Fred silverman was hot shit in the 70s. I forgot exactly what he did but he was very succesful for awhile
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:10pm dave miss:

See! WFMU is educational! Costco Bob learned somethin’
  11:10pm Choo Choo Charlie:

I would just like to say I've been in musical Heaven all night long!!!...:)
  11:10pm PJ:

@Bruce S: All it takes is one episodic melodrama about a nuclear-powered train to derail your career.
Avatar 11:11pm TonyR:

Rolled out of bed to thank DtS for the Cher set. Her "All I Really want to do" is one of my for-realz/no-irony Desert Island discs.
  11:12pm PJ:

@Dave the Spazz: What is the funniest W.C. Fields movie? I saw My Little Chickadee recently, and found it ok, not really getting the best out of Fields or Mae West. The Fatal Glass of Beer, on the other hand, had me in stitches.
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 11:12pm Bruce S.:

PJ Lol
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 11:14pm Bruce S.:

Great version of compared to what. Never heard it before thanks Dave
  11:18pm Miles:

minutes later I can't even remember the song BUT did we just hear Tryin To Get To You? who did it? I'm confused. some song usually associated w Elvis
  11:19pm Choo Choo Charlie:

Just goes to show you some things you never heard you still never heard!!!...:)
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Bruce S.:

Listening to Spazz with the playlist right in front of me is toally different then just listening to the show
  🙉 Swag For Life Member 11:21pm Bruce S.:

But just listening to the show is pretty good too
  11:24pm Miles:

was i trippin? oh well. I guess I knew it was Orbison & "Tryin" . I should stop trying my own damn self
  11:28pm Choo Choo Charlie:

Dave is like Jimmy Durante, he's got a million of 'em!!!...:)
