This Jazz Alley gig is a boatload of fun. Our pal Steve James stopped by night before last to say HI on his way to Eastern Europe. Steve is the best, and a master of his craft. Check out his song, Talco Girl if nothing else!

    I would have bet on the 2nd set as the winner. Luckily, catching both guaranteed that I’d win either way. Thank you. So what was that about photos of scarecrows wearing t-shirts?

    Heading to Jazz Alley soon for some “Hot Tuna” and hear great tunes too! Hoping for a chance to say hello in person to these guys I spent many a New Years Eve with many moons ago! Simple “hello” best wishes &’pic to share would be such a treat for this former FM Dj and native Californian.

    Barbara J. here (again):
    (Because nobody else is here):

    Back in the day, a long time ago and several times since then (especially before the internet):
    I had to argue it out between fans of “Stephen James” (out of Dublin, Ireland)
    and “Steve James”(out of NYC.)
    You had to be there to appreciate my frustration, trying to explain.

    In that situation, as well as quite a few other conversations:
    I had to start singing: ” I Can’t Explain”.

    Ronnie Lane knew your music, Steve James.

    All best to you and yours, Steve James.

    Being not one to waste a bit of cyberspace:
    Steve James:
    Was it you who sent me a tape of your music? Was it a live tape cassette that was taped during one of your shows at a club?
    At that time, I was the only way to connect with Ronnie, other than through
    Ian Mac.

    All I can remember, is in the mid-90’s, I received it and brought it to Ronnie, who loved it.

    If I did not follow up with you, please understand that the timing was difficult.

    Been a couple of years since I lost my pal Seamus the Wonder Parrot. Why did I name him Seamus, you ask? Well, I happened to be listening to Pink Floyd’s Meddle that night, and Seamus was a favorite track:

    ‘I was in the kitchen, Seamus that’s the dog was outside’.

    Weird, I know, but Seamus was a weird and wonderful critter. Found out years later that Seamus was Irish speak for James :)

    What a wonderful show last night. I hope you come back often. I’ve been listening to you for 40+ years. Feels like you are playing my life soundtrack. Thanks for the music. Much love. Carla.

    Jim, tonight we will support Bernie, who will have his hands full against the extremely coached Hill(Bill) Clintonian cluster-shupt.
    If Bernie can just keep calm, he may be able to do well.@jim hitchcock

    @jim hitchcock
    As Dylan wrote in Highway 61, “where can I get rid of these things?” I have the LP Meddle, along with Obscured BY Clouds, and several dozen more of assorted artists, that I can’t find a market for. All or most in great condition. If one prefers analog vinyl with a good turntable I’m your guy. If I wasn’t so old they would not be for sale, as I still give them a spin. Any connoisseurs out there?

    Jorma, please pardon this one time; not using your blog for Craigslist…….

    “cluster-shtupt”.
    At some point in the past, Yiddish word translation into English, added a
    “sch” to words that are actually pronounced in English as: “sh”
    (Example:
    the English pronunciation of the word : “school”.
    Why would “schmuck”, be spelled as if the letter “c” had anything to do with the
    pronunciation?

    Tonight will be the chance for Bernie to shine.

    It’s “shmuck”!)

    If you ever come to NYC., there are a few retail stores that buy used records, as well as CD’s and DVD’s.

    Nothing better than listening to an LP. For more of this opinion, read the Neil Young autobiography: “Waging Heavy Peace”.

    If you like vintage cars and vehicles, read Neil Young’s “Special Deluxe”.

    If you are interested in vintage cars/vehicles and motorcycles:
    watch “Jay Leno’s Garage”.

    I’ve always been with Neil on this…there is someting just perfect about possessing vinyl. It just seems to breathe.

    Which makes me think back. Of all the doodads and gadgets I’ve owned over the years, Discwasher may have been the most sublime :)

    Anyone who bought a ladies small T-shirt that night could dress their scarecrow with it… take a picture… send it to Vanessa and maybe win a prize…

    And he irons great too!!! Is there nothing this guy can’t do? When are you coming to Massachusetts again? :)

    This is a little late, but I caught both Saturday shows… Thank you both for a wonderful evening. Last time was in 1991 on the East Coast. I liked these shows better (not that it’s a contest of course). I knew you wouldn’t do any repeats, and got a few personal favorites. Come back soon!

    One more thing while I’m thinking of it… Please put up some Vital Parts shows on your DL site. I really dug that stuff!
