first, i really enjoy being in the group and contributing overall
second, there is no way around the fact that i haven't posted any reviews in a while
let me assure everyone that my "slacktivity" in writing reviews does not mean that i do not like the mixes
i most certainly do and they have broadened my horizons in a beautiful way
my family, including my dogs are digging them
usually i listen on my bike rides or in my car
please know that because of you all, we're stoked
so thank you for your time and talent to put these together
much love and much appreciated

Okay. Have to correct the statement I made a few weeks back about songs I have my playlist being like yours.
While I was first listening to your mix... my own playlist kicked in. I thought it odd we had exactly the same taste. Nobody is as odd as me.

Anyways... sorry this took a procrastinators month to get out. I had to beat Mr. MZun's delivery.


Algeria Touchshriek - David Bowie Here’s one that isn’t played much. I’ve never heard this before. A little odd for me. But not for David.

When You Give Your Love to Me - Kevin Gilbert Nice rootsy feel here. Reminds me of other guitarist singer song writers like Todd Snyder.

Where’s the Playground Susie - Glen Campbell: A really nice oldie from Glen. Nice memories from this.

Dear Prudence (Esher Demo). - John Lennon: Nice stripped version of a great song.

Valley Winter Song - Fountains of Wayne: Okay here’s one from my playlist. Love those guys. 

Jesus is a Rochdale Girl – Elbow: Another one from my playlist. I like Elbow. This one with its piano riff is just wonderful. And like Mr. Miser said... thanks to William for the intro to this band a few years back.

The Face and I - Brian Protheroe: Sounds like Billy Joel was channeling Brian at some point. Nice.

The Up – Utopia: It seems that Utopia/ Todd and Queen were on the same track during this era.

I Don’t Want Your Money – Chicago: Lots of blues here. Too much for me. Now I’m sad.

Free - David Bowie: Interesting cover. 

Your Gold Teeth - Steely Dan: I remembering listening to Steely Dan way back when they first came out. And all the critics referring to them as “Jazz”. What? I don’t like Jazz! But I like Steely Dan.

Black Cars - Gino Vanelli: That iconic 70s’ssound!

Good Vibrations - Brian Wilson’s version: Okay. There’s not much I don’t like about the Beach Boys. I’ve collected a lot of their weird, unique and a cappella versions of their songs. Those a cappella ones really highlight their vocals. It’s always nice finding them.

This gives me an idea for a Mixtape theme maybe someday.

Once again, a nice mix here. I’m surprised you did this while globe-trotting.
Thanks for getting this one out for us.

Thanks for the kind words.
One day I’ll post the picture of Brian Protheroe AND ME when we met up in London about 8 years ago. He took me into the BBC and we had coffee (“What’s going on with Trump? It’s crazy!”) and later we met up with him and his wife and we four attended a play, and then went briefly to a pub.

I became a fan in the latter 70s, and then at the beginning of the internet I was practicing my coding by creating the BP Web Page. He’d been off everyone’s radar for decades. Then, a small company released his three albums in a CD box. I dropped them a note. They wrote back “he loves it!” And then we became friends.

And then his sometime lyricist Martin Duncan and I got in contact, so I have some of the original pages that were used for his lyrics…

But BP is very tech savvy, and still making music that you can find on Apple Music, etc. We co-run the FB Fan page now (I did the title imaging), but it’s really his baby. Kinda an amazing story, but - as Anne Elk would say, “It is mine.”



That is pretty amazing! Lucky YOU!

I had been keeping a list of tunes that I like and might use and then, as I started to put the mix together, I saw that they were uniformly quieter or negative songs about girls. WTF? And then, at random on a different day, the Utopia tune came on, and I thought - yes, an antidote! - so did a bit of reworking a couple of days before leaving home again until July.

Glad you remembered to post this up. I've been mildly distracted lately and forgot to nudge you.

As always for your "headphones only" mixes I abide and use them to listen. Great experience, I'm amazed at all the cool things I hear that I would otherwise miss. Wish I was doing this long ago. It was liking a hiking excursion, the trail went down and then back up. My notes along the path of discovery. 

* Bowie track - I felt dirty listening to this, not sure why
* Gilbert - I enjoyed the background vocals and the lyrics were excellent
* Glen Campbell - funny my notes says "reminds me of Glen Campbell"
* Dear Prudence - I concur with Lazy on this one. I like the stripped down version better than the White Album version.
* Valley Winter Song - "Snow is coming down on our New England town" the new Cold Miser theme song as I am in the process of relocating to New Hampshire
* Elbow - I really dig these guys (Thanks William for the turn-on!) and this song especially
* Brian Protheroe - I thought this had a Ben Folds sound. You must really like this guy. I've been negligent in my promise to check more of him out. 
* Utopia - I haven't heard this song in years and was instantly seat dancing. Love Kasim's vocals
* Chicago - Great Terry Kath licks here
* Free - Odd cover by Bowie. Was Belew playing with him on this I wonder? 
* Gino Vanelli - I felt transported into a 1980's MTV video
* Good Vibrations - Still sounds Cutting Edge today

Kudos for putting this all together for us while you sail around the world. They say great art is sometimes made under pressure. Most enjoyable!

This was a pretty seamless listening experience, and a bit of a departure from your usual prog mixes. You managed to find some deep tracks I hadn't heard even from artists I'm pretty familiar with.

Like the first Bowie bit. Nicely theatrical, an intriguing bit. Where is this from?

Dear Prudence is one of the best things Lennon ever did, and it's intriguing to see how close his original vision for the song was to where it wound up.

I clearly haven't paid enough attention to Fountains of Wayne.

And Bowie doing a cover? Sounds almost like a '90s club remix, but it heads off in too many interesting directions.

Is the playlist missing a song? Sounds for all the world like a Zappa instrumental, not Steely Dan.

I thought Good Vibrations was strictly Brian Wilson's vision. Surprised he had his own mix.

Overall a very pleasant way to spend an evening. Well done!



Bowie is from Outside, where he got Eno and his usual crew together and created a “song hypercycle” - there’s a small story that goes with it about him being in charge of investigating Art Crimes. Example line upon finding a mutilated body: “It was murder, but was it art.” Includes some spoken interludes where he plays characters from his story. Pretty certain it was the beginning of something he didn’t follow up on. Maybe one day.

That cover of Free is lots of fun with plenty of punch. From his wedding album that swiftly went off the market when the label folded. “Black Tie/White Noise” which I really like. 

Yep, that’s Steely Dan doing Your Gold Teeth. Studio version from Katy Lied, not quite finished and will have different vocals later, and after the Denny Dias guitar solo you hear Fagen give the highest praise.
Thanks for listening, and we now return you to your day, which is already in progress.
