Shaun Cassidy on skin flute

oh i see todd rundgren played everythig on the shaun cassidy record!
  Swag For Life Member 11:45am

Todd didn't actually produce this one, but it's the Grand Funk song I wanted to hear.

following shaun on twitter, he's a very positive and upbeat dude
  Swag For Life Member 11:49am

I've never been more interested in joining twitter.

...could sneak the AWATS version on also.

This Never Never Land has a certain um personality.

Gaylord Fields:

Whenever I see the "5" Royales' name, I think of those signs in shops that say "Fresh" Fish.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:25pm
Hughie Considine:

If there is an underrated Beatles LP, it would have to be "VI" (which we pronounced 'vee eye' as kids).
Avatar 12:26pm

I keep thinking the next line is going to be "have you seen my wife, Mister Jones?"

Goyim in the AM:

@Roberto: you are not alone in that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:28pm
Hughie Considine:

Even Mrs. Gibb found Robin Gibb's voice unsettling.

are the odds that "5" is actually 4 or 6?
Avatar 12:31pm

It sounded like the BeatGees.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:31pm

@pp 100%
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:32pm

OK, 100% isn't odds, per se, but you understand
Queens L. Bow:

Yeah, that Grand Funk song was several albums after Todd produced them. Still a good song, & written for Farner's girlfriend at the time, Sally Kellerman.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:36pm
Handy Haversack:

Next set: "Many"!
  Swag For Life Member 12:37pm

@Queens L. Bow: Really? I always assumed it was about Sally Rogers from the Dick Van Dyke Show!

Dig this Freedom for the Stallion! Thanks for the great show Ira. Until next time.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm
Hughie Considine:

When I first heard Lee Dorsey's "Freedom for the Stallion" I swore he sang, "They've made manigot -- it's a doggone sin!"
Queens L. Bow:

IRA: Not sure about that, but I think "I Come Tumblin'" was inspired by Dick & that Ottoman.
Queens L. Bow:

Wow, I actually thought that was Allen Toussaint's version...Orlando has good taste.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm
Handy Haversack:

Thanks, Ira!
