h'lo hey
  3:10am Mark R:

Morning, Scraps! Nice long track to give everyone a chance to settle in...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:12am pacific standard simon:

One of my old girlfriends died this weekend. She was 62. Haven't talked with her in, I guess, 35 years.
  3:13am Mark R:

Oh, man, it's like part of you died with her, right?
Avatar 3:14am Scraps:

Yeah, anything called Something Jam is probably going to be at least eight minutes long. (I know this one is a whole album side)
  3:15am Mark R:

Two sides of an album, actually!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:15am pacific standard simon:

The part of me that would really like to tell her how much I liked her.
Avatar 3:15am Scraps:

Ow, sorry, PSSimon
Avatar 3:16am Scraps:

See? I don't really know Eat a Peach
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:21am pacific standard simon:

So, you know, do that if you can. And suspect you might feel that way.
  3:22am Mark R:

Sometimes the biggest regrets are the things we didn't do.
  3:27am Mark R:

This is the part of the song I like to call, "The End of the Prom."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38am pacific standard simon:

"It's No Secret" is one of my favorite songs of all time. Huge emotional punch.
  3:39am Mark R:

Yeah one of my faves, too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:40am pacific standard simon:

"Plastic Fantastic Lover" seems like more of a Paul Kantner song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:41am pacific standard simon:

But I could be totally wrong..
  3:41am Mark R:

Marty has the sole writing credit on the album, though
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44am pacific standard simon:

And I am wrong, although that doesn't sound like Marty on the vocals to me.
  3:46am Mark R:

I agree--usually he was more of a sweet singer, but he liked to cut loose and rock out once in a while.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:50am pacific standard simon:

Who is the woman on this Mott track?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:52am pacific standard simon:

Mott The Hoople in Rocky Horror Picture Show would have been awesome, right?
  3:54am Mark R:

Would've fit right in.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57am pacific standard simon:

Must have been COLD on that rooftop!
Avatar 4:03am joeray:

Let It be was recently available on YouTube and it was a lot more enjoyable than I remembered it when it was originally released.It had to be at the time of the Beatles breakup that made it seem so depressing.
  4:05am Mark R:

They were better when they were fighting and breaking up than most bands are on their best days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:05am pacific standard simon:

I'd bet the rent that Marty still works out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10am pacific standard simon:

I wonder who will be the first rock 'n' roller to run for president. We've had movie stars, and TV stars. Maybe Lady Gaga?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16am pacific standard simon:

Ringo and Paul should form a supergroup with Pete and Roger. Drums, bass, guitar and vocals. There you go.
  4:16am Mark R:

I'd be interested in hearing what they came up with.
Avatar 4:18am joeray:

Fantasy supergroup: Moon, Entwhistle, and Hendrix!
  4:21am Mark R:

Moon and Entwhistle played on "Beck's Bolero" and apparently considered forming a group with him. There were also rumors at the time that ELP formed that Jimi might be joining them, too.
Avatar 4:23am joeray:

There's a picture of the three of them together.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24am pacific standard simon:

I'd love to hear Daltry and McCartney screaming, "Yay-uh-yay-yay!" in unison.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:33am pacific standard simon:

Somewheres pretty close to 42 years ago, I bought my first Art Ensemble of Chicago album for a buck or so at a dime store cut out bin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40am pacific standard simon:

Poulenc is pretty much my favorite 20th century composer. Especially his piano and woodwind sonatas.
Avatar 4:42am Scraps:

I got up temporarily to say, Poulenc! Love Poulenc, Honegerr, Milhuad, the three major composers in Les Six.

This is so lovely. Thank you!
Avatar 4:43am Scraps:

And yeah, all of Poulenc's chamber music is wonderful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44am pacific standard simon:

There's a classic Nonesuch album that was in every public library.
Avatar 4:49am joeray:

The 2-LP set on EMI of Poulenc's chamber works ain't too shabby either!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14am Guido from Cologne:

Good morning Mark!
  5:17am Mark R:

Morning, Guido--thanks for joining us!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:29am ausmanx:

sounds like genesis to me
Avatar 5:29am dan in wisconsin:

Good morning everyone. Great show this morning Mark and guest!
  5:30am Mark R:

Wow, just from the intro!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31am ausmanx:

oh i was a dedicated fan way back when
  5:32am Mark R:

Back when they were an interesting "prog rock" band
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:35am ausmanx:

in my dotage i now think that the best thing to come out of early Genesis was the Anthony Phillips solo albums, but NO ONE ever plays them (although i note there's been some kind of 300-disc retrospective of him released by Cherry Red). but i also sold a lot of genesis bootlegs around the world in the 70s so it made me into the ruthless vicious capitalist i am today
Avatar 5:44am joeray:

I saw Genesis during their "Lamb Lies down On Broadway" tour at the Palace Theatre in Providence. One of the most memorable concerts ever! The Palace theatre's roof was leaking due to a rainstorm that evening, so the electricity had to be temporarily shut off. Phil Collins came out onstage telling jokes and doing card tricks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:57am Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Mark R. Enjoy your time off. I hope your trip goes well.
  5:58am Mark R:

Thanks, Ken! Enjoy our guest DJs, everyone. See you at the Marathon!
