    Tonight, The Man in the Brown Shorts™ delivered a package (Sunday night at 8 pm??) which included a new album... Chicago XXXVIII!!
    I've been listening to this band since Jr High; after SEVEN decades they're still releasing new music, and from what I've read on Amazoid, this is a good one.
    Pankow, Loughnane, and Lamm are still in the band (Parazaider and Scheff had to leave), and I don't recognize anyone else in the package band photo (one new guy is like 7' 5").
    It's past my bedtime. 30 years ago I'd've bought some beer and stayed up until 3 am listening to this, over and over. But I'll have to wait until tomorrow now. Old Age tamps down your enthusiasm, but also grants you the Patience to deal with it....

    @Botch and @GrateEggspectations - I was watching a previous MacBreak Weekly episode and Alex Lindsay of 090.media and OfficeHours.Global was talking about FarPlay.io for musicians who want to play together peer to peer. He showed 4 jazz musicians from different locations performing with much lower latency than Zoom. https://farplay.io

    OfficeHours.Global week 32 show 868 - August 8, 2022. The musicians start at about 2 hours into the session. The program costs is low ($8.00/month) and only the person who starts the session needs to have the subscription. Might work well for lessons or reaching out to old band buddies to play together on line.  @GrateEggspectations, I sent you a PM.

    Really cool, @samiam2. Thanks for sharing. I will mention that to my wife, as she plays professionally. (Sorry for this, but I feel compelled to toot her horn here: She taught one of Canada’s former “first ladies” for years and even got a one-on-one musical concert from one of our former Prime Ministers in their home.)

    Thanks for the heads up re: PM. Will check it out and get back to you.

    What fun!  Kind've a "dated" sound (but for what passes as "cutting-edge music" these days, that's a good thing).  Very clever and hilarious lyrics, I'm really becoming a Bruno Mars fan.

    My brother (the musician) put me on to this Brandi Carlisle joint:

    I've since downloaded the album and listened to the whole thing several times.  This kind of music isn't usually my jam but she's very good.

    A brief history and demo of the Pedal Steel Guitar: 

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tg9KFX0GObo

    When my Grandpa Botch passed, I got an acoustic guitar which actually was my Dad's, but he didn't have a musical bone in his body so it sat in a closet for decades.  It came with a book "How to play the Hawaiian Guitar", and I took to it quickly (it wasn't built as a Hawaiian, but the neck was so warped you couldn't possibly finger a chord on it without julienning your fingertips).  Sometime towards the end of school I saw a "lap steel" guitar in a pawnshop, and soon was playing that (one tuning key couldn't be turned, so I played "in between the frets" so I'd match concert pitch/the band; thank goodness that string never broke).  

    While playing in a popular country band in Ohio (~'84), I saw a beginner's pedal steel (in another pawn shop!) and saved up my gig money, finally purchasing it, which I played from then until about '91, and sold it in '92.  Fun instrument, and this video gave me a lot of the history I wasn't aware of (interesting that I've played 3 of the 4 instruments in the lineage).  They can get very complicated, up to 4 necks (all in different tunings), 9 footpedals, and 8 knee-levers; my beginner's model had 3 footpedals and one knee.  

    Would love to be able to sit at one, one more time, just to see if any of those synapses are still there.  Good times.

    Someone mentioned Johnny Lang . I never got around to replacing my CD of his first album in the 90’s. Today I went searching on iTunes. It turns out that he put out a second album in 2006. After downloading and listening to it I concluded that he had a religious convention sometime between the 2 albums. 
    Then I downloaded the Best of Oingo Boingo.

    I've never been a big fan of Grunge, but I've always liked Alice in Chains, mostly because of Layne Stayley's singing (DAMN he could sing!)  Rick Beato just released a video on "The best AIC song", and I had forgotten how good their tune "Would" was.  Dark, depressing, and heroin-soaked;  Enjoy.

    And I have to add: the last 1/3rd of the song goes to a major chord, and makes you think "This is gonna get happier, at last" and then it hits this odd minor chord, and punches you back down into the cement.  Fantastic!

    Rick Beato just counted down the Top 20 One-Hit-Wonders of the Eighties, what fun! Some of these songs I never liked, some brought goosebumps on my arms. And in my last job on Hill AFB, there was a forklift on the ground floor that had a bell tone when it backed up, the exact note, tempo, and almost same timbre, as the bell tone on the chorus of "Faded Love"; now I know who did the song.

    But the one that really threw me for a loop, goosebumps from my scalp to my ankles, was Jane Child!! I loved that song, and will be digging out her CD tonight. Thought the rest of you old farts would enjoy hearing this.

    @Botch - I agree with you on a lot of those songs. What I don't understand is #6 being a One Hit Wonder. He even states they had many hits; maybe he meant in the 80's but that isn't my definition of one hit wonder. For instance "Gloria" by the Shadows of the Knight is a one hit wonder from 1966. But loved hearing Kim Carens again.

    It took me years to find out the band name. By the time I could afford to buy music they were history. Now I think Ballroom Blitz was probably a bit more famous song from their catalog.

    I always liked that one.  A lot of soul compared to most of the rest of the music that was popular around that time.

    The Sweet had many hits, it would be well worth your while to at least pick up their Greatest Hits.  And I'll get slammed for this, but I daresay they could outsing Queen, especially live (given their lead singer wasn't as charismatic as Freddie, but who else was?)

    I actually have it, after a lady on the internet told the group name I went to iTunes and downloaded it. Love is like oxygen.

    I’m considering downloading one of his albums . But I will probably wait till Tuesday when the new releases come out.

    When I switched over to EweTube TV a few days ago, for some reason it completely erased all my "subscribed" channels on regular EweTube, and I've been slowly building that back up.  In the meantime, a whole bunch of sh*t, and a couple gems, have shown up in their place.  
    This one is a "mixtape" (or whatever a mixtape is called on EweTube) that featured a collaboration between Donald Fagen and Todd Rundgren on the first track, and Darryl Hall and TR on the second video.  
    I can't hear any TR influence on the first video, but the tune itself is fantastic, love hearing something new from Fagen.  The comments keep referencing Fagen's Morph the Cat,  but its not on that album.
    The second video is from the series Live at Darryl's House,  and Todd is singing a duet with Darryl.  Good tune and great playing.  Darryl again proves what a first-class jackass he is at the end, typical.  
    The rest of the tunes on this playlist/mixtape, I'm familiar with.  Enjoy the first two, at least!

    Still after 62 years on this rock, the best album I've ever heard is Steely Dan's Aja.  1978.  This VH1 show popped up on EweTube tonight, I think I'd seen it before but it was cool to watch it again.  Seeing Michael McDonald complaining about the tight chord voicings, yet not even mentioning his laser-sharp vibrato-matching (this was long before computer recording) is stunning.  Not to mention all the interviews with the original players; wow.

    Windows.

    I've always been a huge fan of Todd Rundgren's band Utopia, despite all their warts. Four guys, who collectively played dozens of instruments, all wrote songs, all sang lead, all sang harmonies, over some very complex pop/rock tunes (I got to see them live twice, the first was the loudest concert I've ever attended; sad).
    This song was one of the two great songs written by keyboardist Roger Powell (the other being Caravan; the rest of his material was sh*t.) Kasim Sultan sang here. He's easily the most under-rated bassist/vocalist of modern times; I rank him right up there with McCartney and Sting. Prove me Wrong.
    Sadly a poor recording, but I hope you can recognize that this was live, no overdubs/editing, no background singers, just four incredibly talented musicians playing as a Band!

    And tonight EweTube served me Windows, the album version.  Roger on vox.  This tune has as many chord changes as any bebop tune, incredible playing.  I'm going to be doing a deep-dive into my Utopia collection for the rest of the weekend, no doubt.
