Julie, when Green Manalishi would come on the radio when we were teenagers, my sister and myself would dance around and make devil horns with our fingers. R.I.P. Peter, you were the best.

@Julie, one of my favorite pre-Buckingham/Nicks FM albums is Bare Trees. Check it out. I think some of the tracks on there you'd really like.

Wow Henry, wish I could have seen that show!

Hi Charlie- Furtively listening to you with one earpiece. Covid times- wife, who does not appreciate WFMU, is at home!

Hi Wendy! Thank you! I have Heroes are Hard to Find but I see now that is post-Peter

oh my stealth FMU listening
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Charlie:

Agreed re Bare Trees, also Then Play On, Julie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:48pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Julie, Bare Trees is post-Peter Green, too. I don't want to mislead you! It's more of a Danny Kirwan album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm unpopularfred:

The intro to this song was leading me to expect a Talking Heads cover in the style of Al Green
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:49pm Julie:

I have Then Play On which I hear is amazing but it didn't grab me before. But I love going back and rediscovering.

Hello, I am tuning in from the kitchen, Franco wanted to listen to Green Manalishi, in the living room.

Sammy Davis Jr. appeared, in an outtake from Diamonds Are Forever, at the Circus Circus casino in Vegas. So there's your clown connection.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm unpopularfred:

@ Julie - does his performance of "I'm Your Vehicle" count?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm listener james from westwood:

@ndbob: It's hugely fascinating! I'm going slowly so as not to skip over actual typos in my zeal to read it.

@Julie Not sure of his psych period other than covering hep tunes in the late 60s, but IIRC he had a stretch where he was into either witchcraft or Satanism!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:47pm Wendy del Formaggio:

Clown Connection. Hmm. I might have to change the name of my radio show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm listener james from westwood:

OTOH he literally embraced Richard Nixon onstage during the '72 campaign, so he's danced with an earthly devil at least.
