Options Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from September 28, 2017 Options

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

Hi! Like the opener, Guaraldi and Charlie Brown.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:02pm listener james from westwood:

Doing well if frantic! Sprinting through work toward vacation next week. Brief pause to help mail Silent Fundraiser letters at the mothership tomorrow, then back to the computer!
Avatar 7:04pm Flash Strap:

Hi Doc! If you like this, I hope you'll indulge me the whole opening set 'cause I'm pretty deep into revisiting this Guaraldi stuff at the moment

Pitkin County . . . maybe he got out to Aspen, CO at some point?
Avatar 7:09pm Little Danny:

Heya Flash, all. Nice to have ya back Evan
Avatar 7:09pm Flash Strap:

I really, really love some of these Lost Cues... to be honest, I liked Peanuts as a kid but it really wasn't weird enough for me, so it's a weird kind of nostalgia here. This track gets pretty funky
Avatar 7:10pm Flash Strap:

Hi there LD! Nice to BE back!
Avatar 7:10pm Little Danny:

I think I can guess a few records that might surface during tonight's extravaganza. Great theme, btw
Avatar 7:12pm Flash Strap:

tell me if any of your guesses come true, genuinely curious. one big obvious one right there in the title
Avatar 7:16pm Flash Strap:

Very likely but unproven that the singer on these track is the man himself. just a helpful reminder that Vince Guaraldi looks like this: assets.onlinepianist.com...
Avatar 7:25pm Little Danny:

Right-o. SR and various BH occurred to me right away
Avatar 7:26pm hyde:

Teddy Irwin def. plays on "Heart of Gold" by Neil Young
Avatar 7:28pm Flash Strap:

He's really good, all his session work is extremely enjoyable. will hear some this set, in addition to his work on this LP
Avatar 7:29pm Flash Strap:

I wish I could play this song ten times
  7:31pm JtotheK:

Hi Flash and explorers.

Bruce Haack
Avatar 7:33pm Flash Strap:

oh of course! I feel bad, but he's unlikely to appear tonight. might make a last minute change though
Avatar 7:35pm Little Danny:

oh, totally - esp. if you're sticking with the jazz

Loving everything you've played thusfar
Avatar 7:37pm Little Danny:

I mean this sounds like Can for god's sake
Avatar 7:37pm Flash Strap:

i sort of am, though I had a juicy one with Miss Nelson that I was trying to find a spot for

man, crazy to say but Bob Dorough sounds sorta like Damo here
Avatar 7:38pm Flash Strap:

haha well, great minds
Avatar 7:40pm Little Danny:

Avatar 7:41pm Flash Strap:

This is their 3rd LP, somehow. I can't find the others anywhere, but there's a live link for this one, so highly recommended: ezhevika.blogspot.com...
Avatar 7:46pm Flash Strap:

how this could not be an absolute legend is beyond me entirely
Avatar 7:48pm Little Danny:

Yeah this is so great. And totally new to me!
Avatar 7:49pm Flash Strap:

me too
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm doctorjazz:

Nice Blues track!

Bit spacy this Unobstructed Universe, some feel of a Dead jam.
Avatar 8:09pm Flash Strap:

Hi Red Kayak!

@Doc: it goes pretty far out before it's through!
Avatar 8:11pm Flash Strap:

pretty wild electric sax sound on this. good cover too: img.discogs.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:13pm Santos L. Halper:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:14pm doctorjazz:

Maybe more Miles than Dead...but now it's sounding more Dead again.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:15pm doctorjazz:

Gotta go, thanks for the great music, Evan!
Avatar 8:18pm Flash Strap:

Hi Santos!

I hear ya, Doc. hate to see ya go!

Go Buffy!

jesus Buffy just has the blunt fire and it burns
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:46pm melinda:

At first I thought this might be Melanie.
Avatar 8:46pm Flash Strap:

Hey Webhamster!
Avatar 8:48pm Flash Strap:

I was thinking that during Leonda, they both sort of sound like Melanie in different ways
Avatar 8:49pm Little Danny:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:50pm melinda:

This Kate Wolf is really nice.
Avatar 8:52pm Flash Strap:

i don't know her work very well, but that song was on a Holy Warbles mix years ago and I took to it pretty hard
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Webhamster Henry:

Dorough fans might like to seek out "This is a Recording"
www.bobdorough.com... Bob sings dictionary entries, labels, laundry lists, traffic tickets ... a natural for WFMU.
Avatar 8:54pm Flash Strap:

this has a great cover: img.discogs.com...

ooh I gotta hear that
Avatar 8:57pm Little Danny:

Wow this Doris!

Avatar 9:03pm Flash Strap:

such a good use of strings, makes the song
Avatar 9:05pm still b/p:

I'm guessing she's not singing of the Portland I'm in....who knows, there's a bunch 'round the world.
Avatar 9:07pm Flash Strap:

Hi B/P! I always assumed it was the main Portland, but who knows
Avatar 9:08pm coelacanth∅:

wow -playlist just turned sky blue!
Avatar 9:09pm still b/p:

main Portland v. Portland, Maine...I see what you did there, intentionally or not.
Avatar 9:09pm coelacanth∅:

wow - playlist just turned back!
Avatar 9:10pm Little Danny:

You are killing it this set, Flash
Avatar 9:10pm coelacanth∅:

which portland is the main portland?
(witch portland is the maine portland)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm melinda:

@b/p we can pretend it's small Portland
Avatar 9:12pm Flash Strap:

thanks, LD! it's high praise in my book that comes from he of the blue flame

haha that's what I was going for, re: main/Maine, but I am not Doug and so you don't expect wordplay from me
Avatar 9:12pm Little Danny:

I mean this Lewis Sisters is druggy as hell
Avatar 9:13pm still b/p:

Portlandia v. Portland, deah.
Avatar 9:14pm Flash Strap:

oh man, Lewis sisters record is crazy! dig the cover: img.discogs.com...
Avatar 9:16pm Flash Strap:

one of my top Odetta tracks. whole LP is fire. and speaking of great covers: img.discogs.com...
Avatar 9:18pm northguineahills:

We'll call him Stampy.
Avatar 9:18pm coelacanth∅:

my aunt gave me that Odetta album when i was about 13. i didn't know why she'd think i'd like that but i knew if she gave it to me i should listen to it.
...she opened me up musically many times over.
Avatar 9:19pm still b/p:

In this Portland, melinda, I saw this group rehearsing on the side of One City Center the other day, and I'll try to catch 'em, figuratively speaking, in tomorrow's performance there.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:26pm melinda:

I've heard of Bandaloop, sounds cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm melinda:

I never really listened to Kate Wolf but back in the 90s Nanci Griffith did a really lovely version of one of her songs, Across the Great Divide. I listened to that a lot.
Avatar 9:30pm Little Danny:

Have you ever done a sunshine-pop/psychedelic-pop show, Flash? Would love to hear
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:31pm melinda:

I would love that too Danny
Avatar 9:36pm Flash Strap:

Not quite (other than the Beach Boys, Bee Gees, and Donovan shows I guess), but I'm working on a baroque pop/bach rock show that might be interesting
Avatar 9:36pm northguineahills:

Your show came on and I was still at work, and I knew I had to leave (I was the last person there for 2.5 hours.). I finally left around 9. Good news, I'm working, and it's like the company has been waiting for a GIS guy to do some work for the last year. So, guaranteed job security.

Thanks Evan, I'm going to lay down in a bit.
Avatar 9:37pm northguineahills:

Oh, wait, I almost forgot beer.
Avatar 9:38pm Flash Strap:

very happy to hear, NGH. take a load off, brother

I have "Baroque & Stones", bought from Irene Trudel at a Record Fair decades ago.
