Hi Nora - great start. I have never heard this before
Brian D 12:15:39 PM
Sounds great! Love that Finders Keepers funky tune. 1st heard that on the Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders live stuff
Richard from Rocky Hill 12:29:29 PM
@ Nora Great playlist already. Thanks especially for playing Al Green's cover of "I Can't Get Next to You" by songwriters Norman Whitfield & Barrett Strong, which had been a big No. 1 for the Temptations. Just awesome lyrics. I'd never heard Green's version, with his killer syncopations against the main beat. Wow!
Brian D 12:30:24 PM
Wild fuzzy Lee Hazlewood cover here
Brian D 12:31:03 PM
Ya Al' Green's take on the Temps is stripped down funky good. Love that
Richard from Rocky Hill 12:33:31 PM
@ Brian D Yep, and a damn serious horn section behind him! Love it!
Brian D 12:34:59 PM
A cover of The Rutles! Love this. c-h-e-e-s-e-a-n-d-o-n-i-o-n-s
Mike Lupica 12:40:01 PM
Charlie Tweddle appreciation comment. He's the coolest.
Brian D 12:43:02 PM
Mo Rutles!
Richard from Rocky Hill 12:46:32 PM
@ Mike Lupica Don't think I'd heard Charlie Tweddle before, I've got to hear more. This may sound crazy, but "Grandpa" sounded like something from a Appalachian one-man Incredible String Band.
Mike Lupica 12:49:29 PM
Richard, he's got a legendary (in some circles) psychedelic country LP from '74, which, IIRC, one side of is just the sound of the nighttime forest recorded on his back porch. He's (more) famous for creating very ornate, rhinestone encrusted cowboy hats for a lot of celebs. I seem to recall that Reggie Jackson had one of them!
Richard from Rocky Hill 12:50:49 PM
@ Mike Lupica Marvelous, thanks!
Richard from Rocky Hill 12:53:30 PM
I adore Hazel Dickens & Alice Gerrard, what a truly classic bluegrass/old-time duo. Incidentally, The One I Love is Gone was written by Bill Monroe, "The Father of Bluegrass" himself. He was very supportive of them and women in bluegrass in general, and gave it to them to record. They certainly did it justice!
Brian D 12:53:49 PM
Saw David Massengill do this at the Philly Folk Fest. My Name Joe! There is a King in Thailand....
Brian D 12:54:32 PM
Have not heard in years. Reminds me of Gene Shay's great folk shows over the years on Philly radio stations

Brian D 12:56:42 PM
The word "is" is not actually int he title. Makes it even better
Nora (host) 12:57:51 PM
Thanks for catching that! And for tuning in!
Ambrose Hughes 1:00:27 PM
Howdy Nora! Loving these🎶
Brian D 1:01:39 PM
Ya great mix today!
Richard from Rocky Hill 1:07:15 PM
@ richard lyons :) Thanks muchly for the Charlie Tweddle link. The cover art for his album Fantastic Greatest Hits even looks a little like an early Incredible String Band LP, so I wasn't totally off! Must be convergent musical evolution across the pond ... ;-))
Ossy 1:15:06 PM
Good afternoon, lovely sounds
Brian D 1:27:28 PM
Love this! And the Bobby Womack. And that Prince/ Cindy cover back there
Ossy 1:39:42 PM
Nice
richard lyons :) 1:57:07 PM
Fun show, Nora. I'll be digging into more Charlie Tweddle. Thanks!
Brian D 2:03:10 PM
Ah the late great Bill Morrissey
