  1. and the soprano sax is not far behind.
  2. XANADU Records

    No excuse needed. I'd gladly take it off your hands if I wasn't an ungrateful colonist.
  3. XANADU Records

    I listened closely to my 1995 Xanadu reissue XCD 1229. I believe what you're hearing as "pops & clicks" is the sound of Butler's sticks occasionally hitting each other and sometimes the rim. There's a "woody" quality to the sound that makes me think it's not damage to the tape, but the result of how the drums are miked.
  4. New World Records

    You are correct, sir. My brother was a librarian at the time of their initial release. I remember buying Ricky Ford's debut (mentioned above) and a few compilations.
  5. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    21st Century Wire is a conspiracy and conjecture site run by Patrick Henningsen. Henningsen has ties to both Infowars and Alex Jones, also known for fake news and broad conspiracies. They also seem to have ties to, or at least to be pro-Russian in much of their content. Specifically Russian Today (RT) the state-run Russian news outlet. (Media Bias Fact Check) GA, you appear to be fond of quoting questionable sources in your arguments. Of course, you're entitled to consume whatever "news" you like. However, promoting this kind of misinformation on this subject could have a real negative impact on members of our community and the people they love. Quoting the NY POSt article that you posted last month without the opposing views it received is disingenuous. For the record, that article included the following statements: Common reactions to the vaccine, including fever and nausea, “may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients,” Sigurd Hortemo, chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency. “We are not alarmed by this,” Steinar Madsen, medical director with the agency, told Norwegian broadcaster NRK. “It is quite clear that these vaccines have very little risk, with a small exception for the frailest patients.” If I'm not mistaken, moderators removed posts in a previous COVID-19 thread that contained misinformation from unreliable sources. Again, you're entitled to believe whatever you want, but I implore you to stop spreading conservative propaganda that can harm others.
  6. RIP Chick Corea

    Rest in peace, Armando from Chelsea, MA.
  7. The V-8 Juice is SO GOOD!

    Can't decide which I dislike more, V-8 or Moxie.
  8. Who is playing with Jimmy Crawford?

    I think the OP was correct. It's Tony Mottola. Plaid flannel shirts make you think of the 2000s? Grunge aside, Pendleton Mills introduced wool plaid shirts for men in 1924.
  9. Who is playing with Jimmy Crawford?

    I forgot to mention that the piano player in the photo I posted is Carl Fischer.
  10. Who is playing with Jimmy Crawford?

    Your photo comes from a recording session led by singer Frankie Lane in NYC sometime between 1946 & 1948. Unfortunately, I could not find information about the identities of the other musicians. I think Mitch Miller was the producer of that date, as he is seen in some of the pictures. Here's another Gottlieb photo from that session:
  11. Although he was first diagnosed in 2016, I only learned today that Tony Bennett is suffering from Alzheimer's. According to the latest edition of AARP magazine, he endures “increasingly rarer moments of clarity and awareness.” “He's not the old Tony anymore,” his wife, Susan, told the magazine. “But when he sings, he's the old Tony.” Very sad to say the least.

  12. Cicely Tyson has Passed

    A wonderful actor and a role model for women of color in the sixties. Rest easy.
  13. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    'A boomerang effect': Hank Aaron's death is falsely linked to Covid vaccine Oklahoma seeking to return $2M worth of hydroxychloroquine
  14. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I didn't think you were drawing a conclusion of causality (you're too smart for that). I just thought it was important to point out that the message of the OP's source differs significantly from that of responsible journalists.
  15. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    I disagree, Lon. Legitimate sources are not suggesting there is any link between his vaccination and his death. The "author" of the cited "article" identifies himself as a "Former Honda engineer turned stay-at-home papa. Teeth model (yes, really). Republican. Car freak. KAG!"
