Just got "The Best of the Temptations Volume 1 the '60s" and damn, it brings back good memories. I was in high school and college then. Just another example of an exceptional period in American music!

"Just My Imagination" is part of my core playlist for sure.

A few years ago I bought an old (1986) Serrota steel bike with C-Record except for the brakes and pedals. It didn't have pedals and the Modolo Professional brakes it came with work better than the Delta brakes, but the Delta brakes are so cool. Mavic GEL 280's with Conti Sprinters and a corn-cob Regina America freewheel round it out.

Every once in a while on a nice Sunday I ride it.

And every time I do I think about that song: "My Serotta".

Heh.

I think I still have some Modolo Pro brakes in a box somewhere, well used. They were red, they're pink now, anodization faded from sun. I have at least one GEL280 wheel also, just saw it the other day. The good old days, when an ADX-4 was an aero rim and oval spokes were controversial because they might cut you.

Know much JJ Cale?

Even if you don't know him you probably know lots of his songs: They Call Me the Breeze, After Midnight, Cocaine, etc.

"Magnolia" is awesome. Lucinda Williams did a cover and she is a great song writer. Enough said.

But in each and every case I prefer the original.

I was recently introduced to Ben Folds' cover of Dr. Dre's "*****es ain't ****." It is fantastic. I highly encourage you to listen to it.

And if you hadn't already figured it out, it has explicit lyrics, so I'd listen to it through your headphones.

oh, man....that's gotta be like a decade old. haven't thought about it in that long. that made me smile.

ben folds has been in my brain lately. he's playing here halloween night. my wife and i would really love to see him perform again, but halloween is a big deal here. (i personally hate it but the kids get SO amped.)

also, we live in THE neighborhood where parents from 15, 20 miles away drive their kids. my wife feels like we're obliged to be home to pass out candy. to me it feels like organized begging, but.....

i remember halloween was sort of meaningful as a kid; now kids can get candy whenever they want. seems like it would have lost the charm by now.

Listening to Howlin' Wolf.

My biggest influence except for maybe Willie Dixon that actually wrote most of the songs.

Those guys should have been trillionaires.

Listening to Chick Corea & Return to Forever - Light as a feather,

on vinyl, while I install a new chain and cassette on my bike, Good stuff.

Also, I'm trying out waxing chains for a bit. Went through the necessary 'barrier to entry' tasks like degreasing a new chain, and of course soaking it molten parrafin that I melted in a crock pot.

It will be interesting to see how this goes.

I have it on vinyl from way back when. I might just dig it out and give it a spin. I attended a concert when they were supporting the album on tour.

Wow, good stuff. I'll add that to my bucket list of 'concerts I would have attended if I was 30 years older'. Along with Weather Report, Headhunters, Mahavishnu, and of course Miles' band that started it all.

Saw the jewel case for my CD of Joni Mitchell's "Court and Spark" today, but no CD inside. Somewhere I have the vinyl (I have over 2,000 albums on vinyl, so it is always a slog to find something because I don't keep them in any order).

Great album.

Found it right nest to my Ramones CD jewel case without a CD inside. YAARRRGH!

I might have to have a talk with my youngest son that still lives at home (21 years old with good taste in music) about where the CDs might be.

Funny, I was just going through a little Joni Mitchell kick a few days ago. It started because I heard a great cover of Carey on Jazz88 while I was driving to work. I think I listened to "Blue" twice that day.

Gonna have to put everything in alphabetical order and add everything to Discogs!

It took me months to get my vinyl collection in there and I only have around 500. Haven't started with the CDs yet. It's a pain, but it does make finding stuff a lot easier.

Started playing some old Kinks tonight and my son showed up and sang along to every song.

I must have done something right as a parent.
