Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Danny, I’m too weary this evening to engage in foolishness. I’m just here for the journey wherever it may lead me. Whether to the farthest reaches of space or the inside of my head.

LOL LOL LOL. I was gonna comment that it was interesting to hear some one give 26 Tons a,Bo Diddley treatment and then look and see it was Bo hisself.
Avatar 10:08pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny, I had a tor-chula for lunch, and I haven't recovered yet.

thanks UM. i don't know it.
...i might know it; but i don't know it by name. (some of my Waits collection was burned for me and no info given)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:13pm Uncle Michael:

It's relatively recent material in both of their catalogs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm WR:

At least I was right about that not being Bobby Marchan doing Something on your mind...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:16pm doctorjazz:

Doesn't sound like Bacharach...
Avatar 10:17pm Franco Twinkie:

Today while I was digging through a pile of 45's I found my long lost parody of 16 Tons, 16 pounds - of laundry, by Ruth Becker. An exhausted womans answer.

Is this a reworking of the Cary Grant/Audrey Hepburn theme? Been a long time since I’ve seen it.
Avatar 10:24pm Little Danny:

@Matt: yep!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:24pm doctorjazz:

Yup,jazz fluted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm doctorjazz:

Cool track, Third Road. Starts out sounding like funk jazz, then gets. zZawinal treatment.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm doctorjazz:

We're in the VIBE ZONE!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:35pm Matt from New Orleans:

So Mingus isn’t on this track but most of the album?
Avatar 10:36pm coelacanth∅:

i'm rarely (maybe never) one to start a food conversation, but i'm compelled to share that i am eating hot bleuets right now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:38pm doctorjazz:

I looked Hamiette with mutt Bluiettes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm doctorjazz:

(I like Hamiette with mutt Bluettes...oh,never mind)
Avatar 10:40pm Franco Twinkie:

Well Coel, I am eating blackberries that I bought a few hours ago at the farmers market, but I am having them room temperature, right out of the basket.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:41pm Matt from New Orleans:

I love blackberries but they turn so quickly
Avatar 10:42pm coelacanth∅:

haha! - autoincorrect is pure evil when you make a joke or pun
Avatar 10:44pm Franco Twinkie:

No chance of that happening around here, Matt! They were so jewel like in the afternoon sun, I just pounced on them.
Avatar 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

i'm eating them hot because i'm eating them in oatmeal.

blackberries are the one food that we collected when i was little. my mother would send the kids out to the river to get bags of them then she'd make dozens of jars of jam.
(haven't thought about that in a few years. nice memory)
Avatar 10:46pm coelacanth∅:

i/we grow blackberries in my sister's yard but no human has ever gotten any before the birds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm Matt from New Orleans:

This sounds like a song Larry Grogan would love
Avatar 10:47pm Little Danny:

@Franco: I feel like the Sons of Champlin must have crossed your path at some point
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:52pm Matt from New Orleans:

I’m glad that someone on WFMU finally acknowledged the passing of Robert Parker. I see Dave the Spazz is doing a tribute currently.
Avatar 10:55pm Franco Twinkie:

Along time ago I was making myself some Mexican food, and this kid who lived in the Santa Cruz mountains was watching and amazed that I would do such a thing. I asked him if he cooked anything and he said pies. I asked what kind of pies? He said blackberry pies. Amazed, I probed. and he said the mountains were full of blackberries. That kid lit the fuse for me. It took a while to figure it out, but I've been making fruit pies ever since.
  10:56pm Dean:

Glas Menagerie = Jesus & Mary Chain?
Avatar 10:57pm Franco Twinkie:

No Danny, The Sons were from Marin County. I only knew guys from L.A. bands.
Avatar 10:58pm Little Danny:

@Dean: nope, but definitely pointing that way
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm Matt from New Orleans:

@Franco is blackberry pie back on the menu at pie & burger?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:00pm doctorjazz:

Sounds Like Roger McGuinn.
Avatar 11:01pm Franco Twinkie:

I don't know if they have it in winter, Matt. It's more of a summer thing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:04pm Matt from New Orleans:

That’s what I thought but you mentioned buying them
Avatar 11:06pm Franco Twinkie:

I know! They are expensive out of season, but the weather is so fucked up that you can find small batches in January.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm chresti:

There were wild blackberries growing around the place we lived in Fillmore. I think they require colder winters
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm doctorjazz:

Going to put down the phone, just listen then crash. Thanks, Danny, great stuff! See ya all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm chresti:

..and really hot summers.
Avatar 11:09pm still b/p:

I love this show.
And blackberries.
Avatar 11:09pm coelacanth∅:

that's the ideal. same with blueberries, which are abundant in the mountains here.
Avatar 11:10pm Franco Twinkie:

We get them in the store from Mexico, but they tend to be on the puny side. These ones I bought today were monsters! And so pretty.
Avatar 11:10pm coelacanth∅:

the production's challenging, but i'm loving this track
Avatar 11:12pm Little Danny:

@coel: the amateurism is all part of that side's charm!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:14pm Matt from New Orleans:

I hope you didn’t drop the hundreds this track goes for now Danny
Avatar 11:14pm coelacanth∅:

Franco the ones i have here are from chile. big and beautiful; mild flavor but good. fairly affordable.
  11:14pm Carmichael:

Heya Fanny and flamers.
Avatar 11:15pm Little Danny:

I got when the getting was still good, Matt
  11:15pm Carmichael:

*Danny, he he
Avatar 11:15pm Little Danny:

Hey hey Carmichael
Avatar 11:16pm coelacanth∅:

Danny i love a garage sound! just the highs -the cymbals i guess, were very hissy.
still i intend to hear that again in the near future.
Avatar 11:17pm coelacanth∅:

g'night dr.j (probably long gone!)
Avatar 11:18pm Franco Twinkie:

Yeah, the imported stuff tends to loose it's snap along the way. You can do that with blueberries because they have a tough skin, bush berries that are delicate don't fair so well.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:19pm Matt from New Orleans:

And they ferment like crazy once there’s a slight puncture.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:24pm Matt from New Orleans:

I love how you glossed over the BDSM sexploitation aspect of Check to the Queen
Avatar 11:27pm Little Danny:

I don't know anything about the movie itself, Matt!!! Have you seen it?
  11:27pm Carmichael:

Who played on this? Glen Campbell? Bruce Johnston?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:29pm Matt from New Orleans:

Yes I have. It’s surprisingly classy and has nice production values. Definitely an artifact of its time.
Avatar 11:30pm Little Danny:

@carmichael: don't know! definitely a wrecking crew session tho
Avatar 11:30pm Franco Twinkie:

Jack Nitzsche, like Brian Wilson didn't look the part, but he sure understood.
Avatar 11:36pm Little Danny:

@Franco: Nitzche and Spector both really nailed that nebbish look in their day
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:36pm Matt from New Orleans:

Are you on a Across the Universe cover kick?
Avatar 11:37pm Franco Twinkie:

Yeah, brilliant psychos who liked pointing guns at people.
Avatar 11:37pm Little Danny:

@Matt: always! The song has good bones
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:39pm Matt from New Orleans:

That terrible movie named after the song sort of killed it for me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:41pm Matt from New Orleans:

Guilt by association
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:49pm WR:

Another great Cool Blue Flame episode, seems particularly eclectic tonight. Lovely lovely. Thank you.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:51pm Matt from New Orleans:

Thanks Danny. Always an interesting journey on a Thursday night.
Avatar 11:51pm Franco Twinkie:

An Ingramette sounds like something that would have a creamy marshmallow center.
Avatar 11:51pm Little Danny:

Thank you WR! Yeah, strange bunch of records tonight, will have to listen to the archive to see if the show actually holds together
Avatar 11:51pm Little Danny:

Thanks Matt, glad I could keep ya here
Avatar 11:57pm Franco Twinkie:

When I hear that fog horn, I know it's time to find my pajamas. Thanks Danny.
Avatar 11:58pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Danny
'night y'all
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:59pm chresti:

Thanks Danny! Goodnight Everybody!
Avatar 12:00am Franco Twinkie:

Johnny Thompson had very successful music store in Monterey Park.
