Elliot (host) 11:59:41 AM
good afternoon! today's program is a haphazard Year-In-Review!
the_dude 12:14:23 PM
Good afternoon! I support your top tracks mix-up idea for next year
the_dude 12:14:50 PM
And support your method for this year as well
the_dude 12:19:42 PM
Time stamping this track, dig it alot
Elliot (host) 12:20:36 PM
glad you made it over from Dave's chat!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 12:30:32 PM
The Dude abides. :-)
Corage Mike 12:44:42 PM
Sweet!
Elliot (host) 12:45:00 PM
it's not too often you hear Neil on WPRB. what a treat!
Elliot (host) 12:45:20 PM
thanks for listening, Mike!
Corage Mike 12:46:24 PM
Like 1974.
Readie Righteous 12:52:24 PM
Hi Elliot- this is amazing! Love the vocals
Elliot (host) 12:55:42 PM
Why hello, Readie! Some people say Robbie Basho is an acquired taste, but I love the power (and wild, wild strumming)
Brian D 12:55:29 PM
Pic of Robbie Basho looks like an outtake from Trout Mask Replica. Pink tint...
the_dude 12:56:40 PM
Ha, glad to be here! I try to pop in as much as I can, I am technically working but I am self-employed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. And thanks Dave, it's what I do 😎
Readie Righteous 12:56:43 PM
Yes, the strumming is frantic, in the best possible sense!
Brian D 12:56:14 PM
This Art Blakey is great!
Bud Burroughs 12:57:29 PM
I've loved those over-the-top Robbie Basho vocals since I first heard this track on WPRB a couple months ago. Not sure if it was you, or someone else who played it.
Readie Righteous 12:58:00 PM
And thanks for the NEIL! That was a real treat, Elliot
Elliot (host) 1:02:28 PM
the Art Blakey record was the first album I bought from Blue Note's digital store (took me long enough)
Elliot (host) 1:02:37 PM
I love their warning: 'FLAC files do NOT work in iTunes/Apple Music players or on most portable music players without additional software. If you’re unfamiliar with FLAC files we suggest that you download the WAV files instead.'
Elliot (host) 1:05:31 PM
the sounds-like-he-can-barely-play-loud-enough sax tone on this is amazing
Brian D 1:07:43 PM
Blue Note, Music Matters and other labels have been doing great reissues. Vinyl & digital.
Elliot (host) 1:11:20 PM
looks like the Music Matters webstore is mostly sold out! they must be doing something right...
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 1:15:42 PM
Are those Indonesian vocals mixed in there?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 1:18:46 PM
This is hypnotic.
Elliot (host) 1:19:42 PM
I'm not sure what the language is (if it's a language at all)! Ak'chamel is from Houston, but this CD came out on a label that reissues a lot of East Asian music
Elliot (host) 1:23:43 PM
They're clearly inspired by Sun City Girls, and I'm sure they do a lot of crate-digging (or YouTube deep-dives, depending on how old they are)
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 1:31:28 PM
I sounds like Ak'chamel may have sampled Japan's "Voices Raised In Welcome, Hands Held In Prayer".
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 1:34:11 PM
Or sampled from the source that Japan sampled from.
Elliot (host) 1:37:28 PM
Fascinating. 'Good artists borrow, great artists steal', as they say.
Brian D 1:57:48 PM
Loving music from this part of the world. Titke of song reminds me of the song Shouffi Rhirou first heard as a cover by 3 Moustaphas 3
Brian D 1:58:12 PM
title
Krista 2:00:01 PM
If we are talking about titles, The title of the album by Ayalew is heartbreaking in 2020 "Let me die loved"
Brian D 2:00:50 PM
Just the title though. Completely diff sound
Brian D 2:01:13 PM
Yes Krista that is quite a title
Brian D 2:03:05 PM
3 Moustaphas 3 were a lot of fun. UK based musicians w fake names did a million diff world music genres
Elliot (host) 2:02:36 PM
Brian, I'm now on a deep dive trying to figure out whether 'shuferu' is an Amharic rendering of 'chauffeur'
Elliot (host) 2:03:18 PM

Phil Curtin 2:04:17 PM
Ayalew Mesfin tune was a great vibe
Shane Navoy 2:06:33 PM
Elliot, your show makes me want to buy much more CDs and LPs. I mean this as a very high compliment.
Elliot (host) 2:13:02 PM
We're all about commerce here at WPRB!
Elliot (host) 2:14:11 PM
If you're into Ayalew Mesfin, this next song by Groupe RTD will be somewhat similar!
Brian D 2:19:02 PM
This is great too!
Corage Mike 2:30:40 PM
Rock the casbah.
Corage Mike 2:31:11 PM
Love the moped on the cover below too.
Elliot (host) 2:35:45 PM
A real style icon. I wonder where he stores the conga drum.
Corage Mike 2:39:52 PM
Pants match hairs ride and his hair matches 1973.
Corage Mike 2:40:16 PM
Thought this was fugazi...
Elliot (host) 2:41:30 PM
50% Fugazi!
Elliot (host) 2:41:48 PM
100% The Evens
Corage Mike 2:42:24 PM
Will check it out.
Corage Mike 2:43:37 PM
It pains me how a more modern band has the fugazi sounds... shows my age. At least it’s good!
Corage Mike 2:44:04 PM
Sometimes it goes in the wrong direction.
Krista 2:44:16 PM
They are fugazi's members
Corage Mike 2:45:15 PM
My bad... I mean when a band has the sound, but take it in a less fugazi direction.
Krista 2:45:37 PM
Ian McKay and joe lally from Fugazi
Corage Mike 2:46:13 PM
I remember the first time I listened to Embrace and thought the same.... long ago and far away.
Elliot (host) 2:50:04 PM
my first encounter with Fugazi was someone showing me that photo of Guy Picciotto hanging from a basketball hoop
Elliot (host) 2:50:19 PM
I knew right then that they would become of my favorites
Elliot (host) 2:50:46 PM
https://ptpimg.me/0g8m24.jpg
Corage Mike 2:52:12 PM
Very cool, wasted his talents or using them?
Elliot (host) 2:56:34 PM
thank for listening, everyone! onward to Kat's Litterbox!
Brian D 3:01:13 PM
See y'all
