Episode 16: Season Premiere

Show Notes:
Recorded Wednesday, September 6 2006, (9:00 PM - 10:30 PM) at Zodiac Racquet Club in Southgate MI
    “A new set must mean a new season! Scott, Schmoe, Mike, and Mickey relocate from Big Al’s to their new recording studio at Zodiac Racquet Club, where they talk about the new video, review Far Side of the World, and plan for next week’s concert.

    In our continuing quest to steal the best from other podcasts, may I introduce “Wastin’ Away on the North Coast” Season 2.  (As suggested from “The Signal”, though we didn’t even take a break between our seasons.  And speaking of suggestions, go rent or buy Firefly and Serenity as soon as possible.)
    Just like when Mary moved into her new Minneapolis apartment, we have a new set and new supporting characters; so it must be a new season.  There are also some behind the scenes changes, such as the one I mentioned below, as well as the fact much of the show was edited at a remote, undisclosed location on my laptop. 
    I completely forgot the release of Far Side of the World, our discussion album this week, was delayed because of its cover.  The original release date was October 23 2001 and the original cover can be seen here.  Amazon alarmingly listed the title as canceled, but eventually the release date was rescheduled to March 19 2002.
    So what’s a Grey Goose Gimlet?
    Album Rundown: Know Your Songwriters:
          Peter Mayer & Roger Guth: “Blue Guitar”, from Romeo’s Garage (1999) and Scotch (2000) respectively
          Lennie Gallant: “Mademoiselle Voulez-Vous Danser”, from Open Window (1994)
          St Barth’s twins Henri & Leon Ledee, co-writers on “Autour du Rocher”, comprise the group Alerte 2B.  I couldn’t find much about them, apart from some write-ups in September and December 2002.  Similarly I can’t find anything for the other co-writers, Marcel Limodin and Jean-Jacques Kraif.
          Hugh Prestwood: “Savannah Fare You Well”, from Fate of Fireflies
          Bruce Cockburn: “All the Ways I Love You”, from Dart to the Heart (1994)
          Mac McAnally: “Last Man Standing”, from Semi-True Stories (2004)
          Charles Macak, Tafit Baker, Larry Laprise are listed as co-writers for “What If the Hokey-Poker is All It Really is About” because they are credited for writing the “Hokey-Pokey” itself in 1949—although whether they invented this participation-song is a matter of debate
          I’m not sure, but it’s possible the Wayne Jobson listed as co-writer for “Altered Boy” could be the same Wayne Jobson who is Program Director for XM’s reggae channel and/or host of the Reggae Smoke-In show.
          Sonny Landreth: “USS Zydecoldsmobile”, from Levee Town (2000)
    Here’s the link to Jackson’s Buffett News thread.  It’s buried on the third page now—but feel free to leave it blank.  We wouldn’t want to disturb it.  Here’s the link for the Buffett World thread too.
    Our two cameos tonight are from Leo and Jennifer.  Those albums I recommended are Zachary Richard’s Snake Bite Love [iTunes] and Buckwheat Zydeco’s On a Night Like This [iTunes].  For no one’s benefit, my desktop widget’s literal French translation of “I gotta take a shit” is “Je dois prendre une merde.”
    And on that note… that’s it for this week’s notes.  Let the Pine Knob concert countdown begin!
