Road Shows, Volume 2 isn't yet up on Rdio. Showdown with Ornette Coleman?

David Larsson

I will try to make it a point to watch Tony Lovello every 9/11. The perfect antidote.

Rick M

Love those sexy LP covers from the 'repressed' 50's and early 60's!
Marc; how about a review of all the jazz performers that Hefner booked on those early P.A.D. TV shows? Recently I netflixed a compilation and found those programs to be amazingly sophisticated, especially in contrast to that moronic reality show he does now.

Ed Leimbacher

"Hayseed"? Jeez, Marc, couldn't you have gone with "pauper" or "peasant" if you wanted the class distinction? Or "from a commoner to a King" for a bit of alliteration and more pizzazz. The kid may have been drivin' truck and hangin' around Sun, but he loved his Mama and was kindly polite to his elders and ever'one else. He'd even have said "Sir" and "Thank you" to some wisecrackin' Yankee critic.

Also, for strict accuracy, ol' El cut 39 tracks, from which were assembled maybe a dozen singles--or maybe more, but not "39 singles." Not even Presley could press that many in a single singular singles year.
