Hello please, remain seated.

Interesting mix...will download tonight after work.

You know...I only found out, like a few months ago, that Without You was a Badfinger song. Never owned a Badfinger album, but loved their radio hits. Have to say...Nilsson really nailed this one by slowing it down and drawing out his phrasing on the chorus. IMO, this is a classic, classic case of a how to re-work a song. One of the truly great covers of the rock era.




"'Cause I love every track" is the best possible theme for a mix!

Funny, I was playing "To Sir with Love" earlier this week -- not the Lulu original but Al Greene's killer cover. Great minds and all that!

Have a great weekend Sal.

I love the Reverend Al's "To Sir With Love." Is he singing to his dad of his Father? Either way, it's very cool.

My theme is "Awesome songs I love that sound great together on this summer Friday". Great song of the day too. Thanks!

Thanks for the great mix. Good to hear the master of social comment Ray Davies in your selection.

Dig the song....

I bought what I think was Thurman's only album, "Lux," because of the song in this mix. A friend had suggested it to me years ago at the shop, saying it was right in my glammy wheelhouse. Not bad, but nothing as good as "English Tea." I don't even have the CD anymore.
