Have fun in Baton Rouge, bro!


Thanks, it's going pretty good so far. Not too humid (it was nice in Houston the last few days too), hope it stays that way tomorrow when we attempt to venture into NOLA.

We finally got to BR around 1.30am and slept in late. By the time I called your hotel, you'd already checked out. So it looks like we missed each other in transit. Ah well, there will be more JUs in the future...

I AM very sorry, Zoom. We stayed as long as we could but noon was check out time, so...

We're now about an hour from Houston and call it a night here in Winnie, Tx.
Getting on the plane tomorrow. Sigh.

I will post a tracklist for my JU disc when I get home on Monday.



We both had a really good time for the past two weeks. Chantal didn't say much be she endorsed the hell out of y'all.
She'll probably be there at future JU's as well.


Hasta la thingymagick!

Thanks for coming all that way!

No need to apologize, Yves, our schedules just didn't pan out. Michelle and I would have liked to have come out to the big JU shindig (her birthday was the 26th), but her schedule didn't allow any free time until this weekend, so that's the way it landed. No worries, as the kids say, 'sall good. In da 'hood. :)

Thanks; that's about the greatest compliment anyone could pay me!

I played all the piano & keyboards except for the organ on "Wrestling Match" - I left that to my friend Kristian Hoffman. I also came up with a lot of the horn & string parts and basic arrangements, though Probyn the trumpet player came up with some as well. The co-producer came up with some nice touches as well, like the sleighbells on "Beauty Wasted" and a lot of percussion stuff, which is my weak spot. The mixdown producer, Nick Walusco from the Wondermints, also added some cool stuff like the marxophone on "Monica."


Thanks for the production notes. I'll use them the next time I play it. I'm snowed under with so much music right now. Between the JU cds and the ones I bought in Austin I think I have about 16 or so. :oops:

I reckon in one trip to Cheapos and two to Waterloo, I racked up $420+

RESPECT !!!



I got about 20 or so.


Finally back home, just got in. I reckon I'm up for 29 hours or so. Couldn't sleep on the flight home.

It's been superb, y'all. Post pics tomorrow.


Night.

You win!!!

Had I been less financially challenged this year, I would have definitely done more damage. And you and I would have been in substantial competition as to who got more.

I do count the shirts I bought at each location as part of the haul. Record store shirts have become a favorite travel souvenir.

Speaking of shirts, this is the first trip I've made in a long time that didn't include any t-shirt purchases.
The only place I gave it any thought at all was at the Waterloo Icehouse and that's only because Yves was outside smoking and I had a few minutes to ponder such a thing. I did buy a Waterloo Records bumper sticker which I'll either hold onto as a backup to the one I have on the Volvo or I'll put it on the Vauxhall next to my "Keep Austin Wierd" sticker I bought 5 years ago.

I can't not buy t-shirts. Though my husband did make a request that I not buy him any on this trip as he has more than enough t-shirts.
As if there could be such a thing.

Excellent comp Yves. When I listened to it the other day for the first time I could have swore there was a ZZ Top song towards the end of the disc. That might have been the N.M.A Even though I knew we had similar tastes in music, after talking to you in person I realised that we are a lot closer than I thought. I'm digging Julie Miller's Blue Pony btw. I can see why it's a favorite of yours.

Glad you liked it, Les. Yes, we have a lot in common and I suspect Charlie O would have fit right in too.
I only got 3 JU comps. Fish, Rita and yours.
I'll start to listen tomorrow after I had some decent sleep. For now it's two hours here and there, nothing like normal sleep yet.

I listened to Livet's JU cd yesterday. Well done m'lady. It was nice to throw in a little Hendrix and Montrose into the mix for us progaholics. The disc had a nice flow to it and I liked the spacey vibe it. I've never heard that version of Eight Miles High so that was cool. I think I like everyone's version of that song. Regardless of what the real story is about the lyrics, it's still a drug song to me. :)

Next up is Baron's. I've heard it once but it blind sided me with it's eclectic mix so I need to listen again to see what's REALLY going on.

I'm on the Fish's- which is great so far. Lovet the TV Slim and Elmore James, and "Mary Lee Jones" might be my favorite solo Buckingham song.

I've also dipped into the Baron's and Shadeaux's. Hopefully I'll have a chance to hear them all this weekend.

Noblesse oblige so I had to start with the Fish's. He's been the master of the JU disc for years now. Perhaps next time I'll get him to sign my copy they're that good.
And, despite the uninspired title, he delivered again.
John Boden didn't do it for me and I wonder what the Dells were doing on it. I never liked later period Mac much and the Buckingham song proves once again they're not for me.
Otherwise AA+.

I also enjoyed our prog lovin' Rita's comp. As been said before, it was a good idea to throw some Hendrix, Montrose and Trower in. The only one that got on my nerves was Nik Turner.
Knew the Church and Icicle Works but was pleasantly surprised by the Porcupine Tree and Pressure Head tracks. I suppose Slowdrive = Slowdive?
AA.


Six String's tomorrow. Looks very promising.

Hello! I promise to get the pics up this weekend; we've been very busy. There's some great photos.

I should also get a youtube account so I can upload the videos of the bats flying out from under the bridge, and also of The Fish's now-famous dance to "Blue Suede Shoes."
