Thanks for the good wishes - it was wonderful therapy to listen to the show last night - David's shout, the great music, and the special tribute he did for SistahMar were definitely over the top!

I have a question - David played a song last night with a very long electric guitar intro. It was so reminiscent of Eric Clapton/Derek and the Dominoes - extremely well executed and riveting. When the singing started, I couldn't quite place the voices. The song had applause at the end, so I assume it was live. Nothing rings a bell from the list. Can you help?

Thanks again and Cheers for a long holiday weekend!

Miss Parker,

It sounds like you're referring to Lou Reed's "Sweet Jane." That song beings with a long guitar intro and ends with clapping as if the song was played life.

On another note, gotta love the "dialogue" that David did at the beginning of the "Why Don't You Answer" song performed by Eberhard Schoener.

Yes, very nice tribute to Sistahmar and well wishes to Miss Parker as only David can do it in his majestic style.

Glen said...

Uhmmm, live, not life.

Miss Parker said...

Heya Glen,

Heard from Ralph and he concurs it was "Sweet Jane." In my drug-induced stupor (all legal - lol), I wasn't sure if the song I described and "Sweet Jane" (shorter versions of which I'm familiar with) might have been two songs expertly sequenced together.

Yes, I loved the responses that only David can make in his unique, witty style, to the opening dialog in "Why Don't You Answer." That was a hoot!

As to the tributes - the "jackhammer" shout-out made me laugh, and the Leonard Cohen tribute to Sistahmar made me cry. David Marsden is a supremely wonderful man.

I have a recording of David playing 'Why Don't You Answer' and talking along from way back when (I think it was from 2003 - probably before there was a web feed!). That time he kept up with the 'other half' of the telephone conversation for most of the track! I hope to find that one again and figure out a way to convert it to mp3 and extract that song to post - it was classic!

Miss Parker said...

That would be fab. Thanks for all of your help. :-)
