  2. Jazz at the Pawnshop is a live multi-session recording by Gert Palmcrantz made at Jazzpuben Stampen (Pawnshop) in Stockholm, Sweden on December 6–7, 1976. Proprius Records founder Jacob Boethius produced the album which is widely regarded by as the best jazz recording of the 20th Century. Arne Domnérus (alto sax, clarinet), Bengt Hallberg (piano), Lars Erstrand (vibes), Georg Riedel (bass), Egil Johansen (drums)
  3. In 1969 Firesign Theater did an actual TV commercial for a VW dealer.
  4. When I was in high school I found the Don Rickles album Hello Dummy! in my Dad's collection of (mostly) show tunes. It made me laugh so hard I peed myself. 50 years later he still cracks me up. Rest in Peace Mr. Warmth.
  5. A belated Happy Birthday @Greg Viggiano
  6. Congratulations Curtis. 🎉 ENJOY THE MUSIC! Thanks for the excellent Karma offering Mr. Bum. 👍
  7. Thanks for the system pix@mydogbart! Your gear doesn't have to be fancy to be effective. ENJOY THE MUSIC!
  8. This is another album that takes me back to my years in Nevada. It's the first of 2 albums (Bang and Miami) to feature future Deep Purple guitarist Tommy Bolin.
  9. I kept waiting for Georgio Tsuokalos to appear.
  10. Dang dude! That's quite the toy room. Congrats on your latest acquision.
  11. I was living in a small cabin made with ties from the Las Vegas and Tonapah Railroad when this was released in 1975. The blue heron that nested on the pond behind the cabin would sit on the porch steps rocking it's head from side to side every time I played it.
  12. Admittedly, Tom Waits is an acquired taste. Of his many albums Small Change is my favorite because it takes me back to some of the shady strip clubs and brothels I visited during my time in Nevada. When asked about the relative success of the album Waits stated "I'd say there's probably more songs off that record that I continued to play on the road, and that endured. Some songs you may write and record but you never sing them again. Others you sing em every night and try and figure out what they mean. "Tom Traubert's Blues" was certainly one of those songs I continued to sing, and in fact, close my show with."
  13. JJ Cale, the musician's musician and one of the originators of the "Tusla Sound", has been covered by a wide range of artists from Dr. Hook to Widespread Panic. He was also a strong influence on Eric Clapton, Mark Knofler and Neil Young.
  14. My local progressive rock station (WXRT Chicago, 93.1 MHz) had a penchant for digging up jems. This 1989 King's X album was one of them.
  15. My father never talked to us kids, or my Mom, about his time in the Mariana Islands as a young Navy pilot during WWII. It was only after he passed away that I found out about his participation in Operation Forager (Guam, Pelau, Saipan) from documents and photos he had filed away. I can't imagine what it was like for my Dad and his compatriots but I thank them for their service.
