That's All Folks!

After 1 full year and 450 posts, I believe I have shared just about everything that I have that is worth sharing. I had a great time doing this and what a blast it was getting all the feedback from the WHFS Heads out there. I'll continue to moderate the comments and answer each and every one of them.

And don't forget...

Biography by Jason Ankeny (AMG) All Music Guide
The Golden Palominos were not a group per se, but rather the revolving-door project of drummer, programmer, and bandleader Anton Fier. Born June 20, 1956, in Cleveland, OH, Fier first made his mark as the drummer on the Feelies' seminal 1980 debut Crazy Rhythms. After leaving the group, he joined the punk-jazz unit the Lounge Lizards before returning home to Cleveland, where he was recruited by the legendary new wave band Pere Ubu for the album Song of the Bailing Man.

After exiting Ubu, Fier again relocated to downtown New York City, where he founded the first Golden Palominos lineup in 1981. In its primary live incarnation, the band was an avant-funk supergroup comprised of Fier and another drummer, David Moss, saxophonist John Zorn, guitarist Arto Lindsay, and a pair of bassists, Bill Laswell and Jamaaladeen Tacuma; on their self-titled 1983 debut, the Palominos were augmented by Fred Frith, Nicky Skopelitis and Mark Miller.

Over the next few years, Fier moved away from the first record's experimental noise into far more traditional pop territory; simultaneously, he largely jettisoned the first album's lineup in favor of an ever-changing collection of punk legends, post-punk superstars, up-and-comers, and N.Y.C.-scene vets. After enlisting ex-Raybeat Jody Harris to help him co-write much of the music, Fier recruited vocalists ranging from R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe and Cream's Jack Bruce to PIL's John Lydon and newcomer Syd Straw; rounded out by musicians like former dB Chris Stamey, guitar greats Richard Thompson, and Henry Kaiser, and P-Funk alumni Bernie Worrell and Mike Hampton, the revamped Golden Palominos reached an early peak with 1985's Visons of Excess, a diverse yet cogent collection highlighted by a cover of Moby Grape's "Omaha" and the original "Boy (Go)."

With 1986's Blast of Silence, the group flirted with elements of country and folk; while Stipe and Lydon were noticeably absent, many of the other players featured on Visions of Excess remained, along with new additions including guitarist T-Bone Burnett, Numbers Band singer Robert Kidney, artist/producer Don Dixon, singer/songwriter Peter Blegvad, Matthew Sweet and Flying Burrito Brothers alum Sneaky Pete Kleinow. On 1989's moody A Dead Horse, Fier again shifted gears, settling on a constant lineup of Laswell, Skopelitis, Kidney, and ex-Information Society vocalist Amanda Kramer along with a handful of guests, including former Rolling Stone Mick Taylor.

1991's Drunk With Passion returned to the all-star format; Stipe and Thompson again rejoined the fold, welcoming newcomers like Sugar's Bob Mould. This Is How It Feels, a sophisticated concept album inspired by the Graham Greene novel The End of the Road followed in 1993; along with core members like Laswell, Skopelitis, Worrell, and Kramer, the record spotlighted vocalists Lori Carson and Lydia Kavanaugh as well as bass great Bootsy Collins. 1994's Pure featured many of the same principal players, while 1996's Dead Inside, essentially from a trio comprised of Fier, ex-Psychedelic Furs guitarist Knox Chandler, and vocalist/lyricist Nicole Blackman, explored electronic and ambient soundscapes. Dead Inside would be the final album by the Golden Palominos with various compilations being the only additions to the discography.

Syd Straw- War and Peace

Here is a Syd Straw CD from my collection. A truly fine album from one of the great vocalists from the awesome band The Golden Palominos. The review from Amazon below is spot on. Enjoy!

One of my recurring fantasies is imagining Syd Straw in the no-rules wrestling ring with Alanis Morissette, Shirley Manson, and Sheryl Crow, wiping the floor with their self-important butts and showing them how a real woman makes hard-rockin' art out of her relationship woes. Never easily pigeonholed or tied down, singer, songwriter, and wandering spirit Straw wound up living in Chicago, recording her category-defying sounds in Missouri, and putting them out on the Nashville-based Capricorn Records. But the label that made Southern rock famous was as unlikely home, and War and Peace never connected with either the modern-rock or roots-rock crowds that it should have appealed to. Poignant, passionate, it's powered by the world's greatest garage band, the Skeletons. It's also filled with songs such as "The Toughest Girl In the World" (a moving declaration that Straw is anything but), "CBGB's" (a tale of a one-night stand that began at the infamous punk club), and the love-lost ballad "All Things Change. " They're unforgettable-just like Straw herself. Jim Derogatis

Vocalist, singer/songwriter, and guitarist Syd Straw first made a name for herself as part of the Golden Palominos, a band led by Anton Fier that enjoyed a cult following in the 1980s. Her Capricorn Records debut, War and Peace, was released in 1996, and since then her unique blend of folk-rock and blues-rock have found a home with Triple A (adult album alternative) radio stations and their audiences around the country. Straw has only one other solo album, Surprise, released in 1990 to good reviews. That recording chronicled Straw's emergence as a songwriter, which as she had thought of herself primarily as a song interpreter before that. On Surprise, Straw was joined by Michael Stipe (R.E.M.), John Doe (X), Ry Cooder, Daniel Lanois, Don Was, Richard Thompson and Marshall Crenshaw.

Straw was raised in Los Angeles, the daughter of Hollywood film and TV actor Jack Straw, best known for his starring role in The Pajama Game. She was drawn to a life as a performer, and after high school, she headed straight for Manhattan, arriving in New York in 1978. Shortly after that, she landed her first job singing harmonies for Pat Benatar, and later joined the Golden Palominos' ever-changing lineup, which also included Michael Stipe and Matthew Sweet. Straw can be heard on the Palominos' Visions Of Excess and Blast of Silence albums. She also toured the U.S. and Europe with the band, performing at the Montreaux Jazz Festival one year.

In the midst of promoting and touring for War and Peace, Straw has kept up her profile as a scenemaker, sitting in at clubs and lending her gifted musical sensibilities to records by Vic Chesnutt, Wilco, Rickie Lee Jones, David Sanborn and Evan Dando. A version of her song "Howl,'' served as the title cut for a film by Eric Stoltz, Sleep With Me. Straw was the first female singer signed by Capricorn, a roots-rock and blues label now based in Nashville. On War and Peace, she's accompanied by a gifted bar band from Missouri, Lou Whitney and the Skeletons, and she recorded the album without a lot of extras at their studio off Route 66 in Springfield, Mo. On the album, Straw addresses themes ranging love and the lack of it on a track by the same name, "Love and the Lack of It,'' as well as loneliness, as on "All Things Change.''

Although Straw may only have two albums out, she's an enormously gifted vocalist and songwriter who has her own distinct musical vision, as evidenced on her self-produced War and Peace. That vision is a rootsy one, with lots of country and blues influences. Her 14 originals on the record prove it. Although she didn't set out to, she also plays rhythm guitar on many of the tracks on the album. Straw says with the biography accompanying War and Peace that she doesn't see the album as a "comeback'' at all, "because things have been constantly busy and changing for me since Surprise came out. But I really threw myself into the new record in a way that I haven't been inspired to do for a long time.'' Great records and a wider following are in the offing for this unique, multi-genre vocalist and songwriter. ~ Richard Skelly, All Music Guide

Songs of Jimmie Rodgers- A Tribute

Here is a nice collection of covers for your listening pleasure. Plenty of good tunes and fine artists featured on this tribute album.

"Jimmie Rodgers cast a huge shadow. Taking what was then called "hillbilly music" and making it accessible to the general public, Rodgers created an influential new style that merged folk and blues in a precursor to today's popular country music. Troubled times. Rodgers championed the common man against a backdrop of rapid economic and technological change: he focused with humanity on colorful characters who lived with bravado and self-reliance."
Robert Christgau

Jimmie Rodgers was born in Mississippi and grew up loving the railroad, his father's profession. He became a brakeman, one of the more dangerous jobs that required great skill. His job required that he run on the top of each car setting the brakes by hand. At a young age he had to leave the railroad because he acquired tuberculosis. He had several jobs and finally landed a job recording for Victrola records. His short career of six years writing and singing songs, made more of a dent in the soul of American music than any other musician of the time. He died at the age of 36 after singing and writing 113 songs. He forever influenced country music. He was one of four to be inducted into the first Country Music Hall of Fame.

Bob Dylan garnered his influence and brought together 13 other musicians to pay homage to Jimmie Rodgers. Dylan said, "Jimmie Rodgers, of course, is one of the guiding lights of the Twentieth Century, whose way with song has always been an inspiration to those of us who have followed the path....He was a performer of force without precedent with a sound as lonesome and mystical as it was dynamic. He gives hope to the vanquished and humility to the mighty."

"Dreaming With Tears In My Eyes"- Bono, guileless and without his usual backdrop sings a simply lovely tune.

"Waiting For A Train" Dickey Betts has an earthy swing to a Rodgers favorite song; The Allman Bandsman comes with the yodels intact.

"Somewhere Down Below The Mason Dixon Line" Mary Chapin Carpenter floats and echoes the rural 20th century times

"Miss The Mississippi And You" David Ball does credence to this sad song- bringing the old tempo to life. Wonderful yodeling.

"My Blue Eyed Jane" Bob Dylan's effortless rawness is a labor of love to a man who he reveres.

"Peach Pickin' Time Down In Georgia" Willie Nelson gives us the loose rambling song with simplicity and love.

"In The Jailhouse Now" Steve Earle has a raw and lively sense of timing. He is always the true picker and singer.

"Hobo Bill's Last Ride" Iris Dement's voice is true country, and she sings a riveting old fashioned account of the hoboes' life.

"Gambling Bar Room Blues" John Mellencamp brings to life his rough and tumble persona in a guitar and drumbeat tempo. "Hey, Hey, hey, hey"

"Why Should I Be Lonely" Aaron Neville brings his high-pitched, dramatic sweetness with his rendition. "Best Pal I've Ever Had".

This CD was released in 1997 to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of Jimmie Rodgers birth. "Songs of Jimmie Rodgers" is an understated collection that moves from Dixieland to country and lets the songs take center stage.

It's another rainy Sunday here in beautiful Downtown Bowie. A perfect day to rip some good music from our favorite radio station and get it out there for you old timers.

This an overnight show from Mark that went all over the place. Pretty wide variety of great music here. Ripped from three 90 Minute Maxell UDXLIIS90 Cassette tapes. I edited out some stuff. Hope Robbie doesn't mind. Half a tape of "Disco" and another half of "smooth" Jazz. I'm not much of a fusion guy, but I left most it on here because it was actually pretty awesome.
This may be the last post from Robbie's tapes. The last tape left is labeled the last show. I have already posted the last 3 hours of 'HFS in Bethesda from an open reel tape.

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
