There was a Joe Leanin' on the back door A couple Jills with their eyes on a couple bills Their eyes was statin' They was waitin' To get their hands on some easy money
They flipped a dime One said " well, I'll take heads this time" One stepped up One stepped back One loosened her shoulder strap She couldn't speak, Her knees got weak She could almost taste that easy money
There was this old black cat Sittin' in a old black cadillac The Joe smelled sweet She curled up at her boyfriend's feet She said "I got a plan Listen, Sam, how'd ya like to make some easy money ? " He say, "yes! oh yes! Jus' tell me what you want me to do " She said, "Baby, you can trust me Baby, but you must be hidin' in my room At a quarter to two" Well, the cat told the boy "Come up to the room and play with my toy" But the Jill set the bait And she wasn't gonna sit around and wait But this guy was wise to all the lies And he flies out the door With the easy money
Because there ain't no man Who got the money in his hand Who got any of that bread Bein' slow in the head The easier it looks The hotter it hooks There ain't no such thing as easy money We say, "yes! oh yes!" Saturday night There was a terrible, terrible fight Between two dames who was losin' the same game It wasn't clear, But I hear somebody was lookin' for some easy money

In some ways, they beat up on my import vinyl!
At my first meeting with the Atlanta Audio/Video Club we played some vinyl as someone brought in a Project Debut with an NAD phono stage ( I would have thought someone would have brought in a much better TT and phono stage), but it was musical enough and someone brought in a Doors lp and played Riders On The Storm, which sounded very good even on that inexpensive rig.
And I tell you it sounds awesome on DVD-A! Can't be played too loud
Jethro Tull: Thick As A Brick
Just received it from Amazon

Now your talkin' my friend.
Brian Hughes - Between Dusk and Dreaming
The Gregg Allman Band: Playin' up a storm
Belafonte in Carnegie Hall (200 g vinyl)
One of the best - if not THE best - recording I've ever heard
Roger Waters: In The Flesh (Live video)
Wow, I am a bit jealous that you have an av club in Atlanta!
Keld, don't you love that hard dynamic hit early on side one of Thick As A Brick? And I completely concur with your assessment of the Doors on dvd-a, outstanding!
I love it and it gives me a shock every time
Humble Pie: The Best
Humble Pie on Wiki
Keld, I love it SO much, it is the highlight of the album for me. Sometimes I am a bit let down after that great bit! If my records weren't mostly in storage I would go home and play it immediately!
How come your records are in storage?
Eagles Farewell Tour - Live from Melbourne (DVD)
Donald Fagen: Morph the Cat
Keld, we had a flood in Nashville. We got 17 inches of rain in 24 hours! So our house got 2 feet of water in the ground floor. I lost about 50 records, nothing too precious. Well, I did lose Nilson's A Touch Of Schmillson In The Night, but I listened to it via a high res file last night, and it sounded sweet!
I have two boxes of records out of storage, but I am purchasing the little things that the flood carried away, a record brush, stylus cleaner, Disc Doctor fluid, stuff like that.
So I have been listening more to cds and computer files lately. NTTIAWWT.
Sorry to hear that. I had no idea you lived in that area
Ok, continuing from the thread I started marked 'Thank You.'
With my new-old PSB speakers, for the first time since I started paying attention to sound I'm not even a little anxious about what I'm hearing. In fact, I can't wait to get home and to the late part of the evening so that I can dig into the pile of music I accumulated over the last few years.
Last night's great moment was the first disc of the RCA 'Blanton-Webster Band' set. This is one of the oldest cds I own, and was made during the era when RCA was using a filtering system to clean up 78s (Sonic Solutions?) that I have never liked.
(I'm talking about the original issue from the late 80s, not 'Never No Lament,' which was a much later RCA/BMG reissue of the same set. I don't know whether it used the same sonic scrubbing.)
Anyway, I have never heard Ellington's music from the 40s sound so alive and full. This must be at least a distant relative of what the guys with 78s and McIntosh mono monitors and klipsch horns are hearing.
I also listened to the Dangermouse/Sparkle Horse 'Dark Night Of The Soul' collaboration, and am shocked by how much detail, how much music I get.
I know this is old hat, the reason why most of you are here in the first place stuff, but it's a revelation to me.
Sorry, but I was an Eagles fan until Frye and big-head what's his face (Henley)decided to dis Felder, the best guitar player the Eagles had. I get so sick of the egos. I will not buy any more of their music.
It was Frye, Henley, and Walsh that blew the group up in the first place. Could someone tell Walsh he cannot sing.
Timothy B. Schmitt is a great bass player and I do pull out the DVD of When Hell Freezes Over once in a while.
I believe you are totally right about that. All my records with the Eagles are from between 1975 and 1976 except "their Greatest Hits" (1971-1975). On DVD I have the Farewell tour and Hell Freezes Over, but the "real" Eagles are the albums around 1975 IMO.
Dire Straits: Dire Straits (Remastered)
Jim, while I hear your point about the ego maniacs in the Eagles, I expect creative people in general and "stars" in particular to be nincompoop jerks. I mean, look at their politics!!!!
Elvis Costello had a great line: "Was it a millionaire who sang "Imagine no posessions," a stupid little schoolboy saying "We don't need no lessons." It is a great swipe at Lennon and Waters respectively, but it also sums up my thoughts on the personalities and crappy attitudes of the people whose music I love.
I expect them to be fairly useless individuals when they are not making music. Now there are obvious exceptions, but a cruddy musician with good morals is no fun to listen to. Good for a friend though. 8)
So when an aritist I enjoy does something stupid, I just say "What did you expect?" and play some music.Trey
I know a guy who have been a roadie for several big stars, and he told me that one of his buddies was fired on the spot when he shot a glance at Prince's gf backstage. Small dude with a super large ego! I so agree!
Tony Bennett & K.D. Lang: A wonderful world
Hunh. In my experience, the best musicians were quite easy to work with.
Some of the marginal ones were absolutely a thorough pain in the ***.
Tim Christensen: Honeyburst
Dr. John, the night tripper: Gris-Gris
Man, that dude must have been on acid!
So right you are!

Donald Fagen is a musical genius. This is a killer album.
Of course, I'm biased since Steely Dan is my favorite group of all time.
