Thanks, AB, you too.

Here's an encouraging and interesting NYT article about Kevin Long's work with Jetes' swing. Very cool.

Nice Steely Dan reference, Al.

1) great stuff, but if he becomes a pull hitter, dictionaries will have to revise the definition of Jeterian.
2) I hummed it in my head a few times, ransacking the cluttered corridor of my brain where I keep random song fragments, but I couldn't place it. The harmony had me rummaging through CSNY tunes.

4) excellent funky ass rough cut, without harmonies. CSNY never wrote anything as delightfully creepy as this one either. I was definitely looking on the wrong shelf! oh, and very cool video there too, even if the images were too often repeated.

[5] Yeah, couldn't find the original release on youtube. That demo was on their box set, if I remember correctly.

As for CSNY...well, Neil sure did. Hey "Revolution Blues" may have been a solo track, but CSNY used to perform it live (and Crosby plays on the studio version). That's a creepy song.

[6] especially if you're among the stars who lives in Laurel Canyon!
Definitely a little creepy, and one of my favorite Neil tunes. "On The Beach" is one of his best albums. That, "Rust Never Sleeps," and "Zuma" are the ones I go back to the most.

Didn't know CSNY covered Revolution Blues.

[7] Yeah, they played on occasion on the '74 "Reunion" tour.

All 3 of those are KEY Neil albums!
