Melanie's set @ Woodstock was fantastic. This song written after the display of matches in the rain before her Woodstock set.
  5:08pm John from Florham park:

One of my fav songs thanks Therese
  5:12pm Jeremy:

so groovy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Sid:

Also a story around that "Look What They Done To My Song (Ma)" was about the shortening of 'Candles' as a single. Still turned out pretty good.
Avatar 5:15pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Episode efd had few weeks ago with engineer who spent 14 YEARS doing Woodstock Complete boxset is most excellent. Reportedly 1st concert with lighters aloft...Yeah - the whole thing was logistically deranged - but a reassessment is due it seems...
  5:16pm John from Florham park:

@Sid there is a version of candles in the wind with the Edwin Hawkins singers accompaniing Melanie
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:17pm Therese:

Andy Zax! He is a mad genius.
Avatar 5:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

.. Probly current Political reality makes hippiebashing less a priority - maybe...
  5:18pm John from Florham park:

@RRN63 Woodstock was a real clusterfuck but still was pretty damn good
  5:18pm Listener Robert:

Whenever I hear "Lay Down", I substitute "Keep the whitefish flying" a la Robert Anton Wilson for the business about the white bird as I sing the chorus.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm Sid:

"The Four Sides of Melanie" released in 1972. Bet the rereleases don't have any funky packaging. Always cost-cuting these days.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm Sid:

Andy Zax is a mad genius. The sound on the 38-disc Woodstock set is supremely good.
  5:26pm Chuck:

I had an extraterrestrial once, it resulted in multiterrestrials, some of which wound up being polyterrestrials!?!
Avatar 5:26pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

They dealt with the clusterschtoop very positively & sociably.. So there are a number of things that can be said about it...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm chresti:

home from work, hi!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:44pm Franco Twinkie:

Sid, can you give me your impression of Neck Bones And Home Fries by Santana?
  5:46pm ?:

t-storms rule
Avatar 5:46pm Hoboken Jack:

He'll Therese!! PS It is raining.
  5:50pm CC:

Alas, rain is so monoterrestrial...
Avatar 5:51pm Hoboken Jack:

A hint of Depeche mode to mr. Tucker which I find pleasing
  6:00pm John from Florham park:

@RRN63 yes it was, heard the nythruwasy was a hot mess
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:09pm Sid:

Franco, as I understand it, Neck Bones was something Santana played in their pre-album days frequently and once they had more of their own material, it went by the wayside. It didn't make the cut for their first album. Decent jam,but they've come a long way since then.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:16pm Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Sid. Like everybody, I've been googling the hell out of Woodstock to fill the gaps and to be part of the conversation. I never knew Santana did that song until this week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:22pm Sid:

Yeah, first time I heard Neck Bones was when Santana released their Woodstock set a few years back. It only shows up on early live recordings.
  6:23pm Jeremy:

I hear the dogs barking!
  6:29pm Chas:

great cover
Avatar 6:30pm geezerette:

Exquisite Blossom Dearie.
  6:33pm CC:

Conjunction Junction was kind of out of sight!
Avatar 6:35pm RobinSays:

Hey Therese! I remember having the Multiplication Rock album and Blossom Dearie sang the song for the number eight. I probably would have had a harder time with math if it wasn't for Schoolhouse Rock:)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm Therese:

Like I said, public interest, convenience or necessity!
Avatar 6:39pm geezerette:

Love the song Wild Horses, nice cover.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm doctorjazz:

Hey folks, listening/lurking for a bit, of and on.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Wow, what a day for Sundaystorms!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Franco Twinkie:

Wow! Weather.
  6:47pm JakeGould:

This new “Severe Thunderstorms” is really derivative.
Avatar 6:47pm SheWolf:

Yep. Morris County here. Hasn't happened yet tho.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm doctorjazz:

I thought I heard a version by The Weather Girls years back.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:54pm Franco Twinkie:

This morning there was a Cumbia band playing at the farmers market. They did NOT play the Star Spangled Banner.
  6:54pm CC:

I'll be darned, a duplicate of The Who!
  6:57pm Irving:

Tonight you could ride furry donkeys on my head and I wouldn't even care!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm chresti:

We're pretty safe from the thunderstorms, being 3000 miles or so from NJ
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm melinda:

This is nice.
  7:14pm Chuck:

this song has all the elements of excellence!

Avatar 7:17pm geezerette:

Irving, you'd need to have an enormous head.
  7:21pm Jeremy:

Happy Beautiful Sunday everyone!
  7:22pm Charles:

some people get rain and some people get a hundred and five degree heat!
  7:29pm Crystal Cumani:

Oh my goodness!!!
  7:35pm upstate sean:

You go, Therese
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:36pm Therese:

This set has taken a turn.
  7:37pm upstate sean:

O yeah
  7:39pm CC:

if I was a DJ and wanted to play some little old thing that struck me I'd sure want to to be able to get it on quick..!..ya know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm listener 126464:

Thanks Therese!
  7:44pm Erin:

Therese! Well done lady. LOVE the last track
Avatar 7:44pm JIMD:

Stoked means very good in aussie. Kiwi would be choice.
  7:50pm Mr. Palchepo.:

Avatar 7:53pm geezerette:

Thanks, Therese! Gently into Monday. :)
  7:55pm Carmichael:

Late shout out, heya Therese. Good looking playlist.
  7:56pm SwitchbladeBatman:

I caught The National in June, they were really good.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:57pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Thanks, Therese. Look out for severe weather on your trek home!
  7:57pm Jeremy:

I always think of my mom when this song comes on!
