"Sonntag 11 June 2023. recording with Mr Peabody near John Proctor's house for next Mad painter cd. This was the keyboard/bass/drum trio backing tracks ala Aphrodite's Child/the Nice or EVEN early ELP (OH, what a lucky man I aint...)..."Empty bottles' i do a "Judy in disguise' bass line. Al hendry-drums, Alex Gitlin-keyobards. "Stand your ground" is SO Deep Purple mach II, kinda like the machine head version of "Space truckin". "Two Horsemen ' I channeled Raymond Berry Oakley the third of the Second Coming on "Whippin' Post" from when he merged with the Allman Joys. Kinda jazzy for me! After Fiddy Years i might even have chops! lamb chops...pork chops...all we need now is Schmel Herbie hind's BALLZ-y guitar and icing on the cake vocals of Gee Julie and Cee Sharon!".....

day of Wodin 14 June 2023; NONE of the Jeopardy contestants could answer the question:

"Who sang:

"However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you" one rang in....So Mayim Bialik said "That was Robert Smith of the Cure"...

"DAY OF THOR! (Beware) the Ides of June! A nice evening to go "roamin' in the gloamin'" like KENNETH macKellar and Zuma radio 740 AM Toronto does "the '60s at Six". 620 pm. jackie Shane "In my tenement"; what a great song! This 1963 45 on Sue highhest sale was $234.18, versus $300 for O. rex. written by arthur resnick; he's on Nuggets with "run run run" by the 1967 Third rail and Bobby Scott, jazz bandleader.

Zuma's 60s dj is Robbie Lane, whom sang in Toronto band Robbie Lane and the Disciples (wikipedia) "when "In my tenement" came out (1963) I RAN (so far away?) to pick up that 45 so's to learn it to play out" (in Toronto). Also big in Toronto was trans soul singer jackie Shane whom you MUST research aboot; when she died in 2019 and many tributes came aboot, i was like "However did i miss out on this trailblazing r and b singer?"...SUCh a pleasure to hear her on a station i can pick up acrost the lake (ontario, not gitchee-goomie) up to ma's place!".....
