About this Episode

Glenn Yarbrough [00:32]
"Each of Us Alone"
Each of Us Alone: Glenn Yarbrough Sings the Words and Music of Rod McKuen
Warner 1736 1968
If you weren't depressed when you started this episode, you are now. Sorry about that. But the harpsichord is pretty groovy.

Eagles [02:41]
"Take It Easy"
Asylum Records SD 5054 1972
If you're not a fan of the Eagles, just pretend this is a Jackson Browne song.

The Fresh & Onlys [06:10]
Early Years Anthology
Castleface Records CF-059 2015
An excellent compilation of early recordings from the band on lovely translucent yellow vinyl.

Jefferson Starship [08:23]
Grunt Records BXLI1-2515 1978
Skateboarding! It's a thing! You heard Grace correctly, she'd drain the pool for that fool.

Love and Rockets [13:07]
"Mirror People"
Earth Sun Moon
Big Time/Beggars Banquet 6058-1-B 1987
Time goes by so slow when time has no meaning any more. Although, I guess time does have meaning, otherwise I wouldn't be cranking out one episode a week. Huh. I guess things are looking up.

Wymond Miles [17:09]
"Temples of Magick"
Earth Has Doors
Sacred Bones Records SBR-070 2012
More sonic wonderment from the Fresh & Onlys guitarist.

Blondie [21:21]
Eat to the Beat
Chrysalis CHE-1225 1979
Side one, track one. Almost went with "Atomic", but again, sometimes you gotta go with the hits.

Eight Belles [24:25]
"The Right Light"
Eight Belles
Saint Rose Records SRR-1976 2015
More Bay Area goodness from Jessi Phillips and Henry Nagle and friends. And whoah dude, that's like song number eight in this episode.

Dick Hyman and his Orchestra [29:04]
"Mack the Knife"
Command Records RS 856SD 1963
Dick Hyman and his amazing electronic Lowrey Organ!

Jac Holzman, K2VEH [31:36]
"Alphabet, numbers and punctuation"
Elektra Code Course
Elektra CC-1 1956
Useful information to use after the information apocalypse. Also, kind of sounds a lot like Dick Hyman.

Doc Watson [33:34]
"Freight Train Boogie"
Elementary Doctor Watson!
Poppy Records PYS-5703

Doc and family and friends recorded at Jack Clements studio.

The Stone Roses [36:35]
"Elephant Stone"
Elephant Stone
Silvertone Records ORET1 1988
How about some peak Madchester produced by Peter Hook for you?

Come [42:31]
Eleven : Eleven
Matador OLE-45-1 1992
Thalia Zedek, Chris Brokaw and crew recorded at the famed Ft. Apache in Cambridge MA.

Emmylou Harris [47:01]
Elite Hotel
Reprise MS 2236 1975
Side one, track one on this album brings us a tune co-penned by Emmylou and Rodney Crowell, with backing vox by Linda Ronstadt. A jukebox and a pinball machine sounds pretty good to me about right now.

Ella Fitzgerald [50:04]
"Blue Moon"
Ella in Hollywood
Verve Records V6-4052

A contemporary classic performed by the one and only Ella at the Crescendo in Hollywood. I think Ella has a pretty solid sense of humor.

Elton John [53:24]
"Your Song"
ELton John
UNI 73090

Another side one, track one. I think pretty much only Elton could get away with a down tempo lead off, and a song about a song no less.

Music behind the DJ: "Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes" by Les Baxter and his Orchestra.
