I never saw this stuff before. It's kind of an animated biography of some legendary artists, Jerry Lee Lewis, George Jones & Tammy Wynette, Johnny Paycheck and a look at their on-the-road lives:

Mike Judge Presents Tales from the Tour Bus

Johnny Paycheck:

Jerry Lee Lewis:

George Jones & Tammy Wynette:

And here's a trailer for the show:

I've yet to check out the show, but given this, and the amount of country music guest stars that used to appear on King of the Hill, I'm thinking Mike Judge is a pretty big country music fan.

My current girlfriend is not convinced of the greatness of the Beatles, and part of the problem is the lyrics of the early songs. She finds them to simple, not thought provoking. "I Wanna Hold Your Hand? That didn't take much thought". I think the Beach Boys are going to be  a harder sell, though - all those songs about trivial things like surfing and cars. I told her "back in 1964, if people wanted serious, socially conscious lyrics, they listened to folk music. And who was the biggest folk artist in 64? Bob Dylan." She hates Dylan because of his singing.
Oh well. In the past I always dated girls that liked the same music as me - and it didn't work out. But I haven't given up trying to 'convert' her.

Just curious as to what kind of music she's into.

Today's song is I Was Made to Love Her.

What more could you ask for----Motown and the Boys in one place!

Any song with a rattling tambourine is alright by me but this one especially----and I don't miss the bridge!

During the time when Hal was most involved in Brian's work he basically did all the drumming didn't he? I think he refers to the 65-66/67 period when he makes that statement.

Need some help . . . does anyone think they hear the initial attack of vibes on the first note, along with the organ? Or have I gone mad, and it's just organ?

COMMENT:  F.Y.I.   This may help you understand what you are hearing.  Vibes are played by striking a rather hard mallet against a metal or wooden tuned bar that is suspended over a tuned air cavity. Thus, the initial sound is a percussive followed by the resonance of the bar.

The Hammond organ is unlike all other organs in that the sound is not electronic, but rather electric. Each note's sound is produced by a rotating wheel colored with black and white strips that is read by a photocell as a note. This technique produces a "chiff" (to use a pipe organ term) or click at the start of each note. Electronic organs (those that use oscillators to produce each note) do not produce such chiff, but rather just start the note as a tone.

As vibes have their mallet sound leading each note, Hammonds have their chiff or click to lead each note. This subconsciously directs attention to each note. Also like vibs, the Hammond organ is favored by Jazz musicians because as they play very fast and complex vamps or runs over the keyboard or bars, the mallet sound and the chiff sound enable the ear to follow each note more closely and/or give a separation to the notes in a run.  

All commercial produced Hammond organs use a high-frequency filter to reduce this effect, which for most music is more pleasing. But Jazz musicians remove the filter for the added clarity of individual notes. Some studio Hammonds also remove the filter so that the organ notes "cut" though a mix.

I can only guess, but I would surmise that what you hear is the unfiltered Hammond sound -- which can sometimes sound like a mallet before each note, when it is really an electric click, the unfiltered normal Hammond B3 sound.

The Hammond also has a percussion setting. Brian may have used this setting and that is what you hear. Just an educated guess. Go here for a short example of the Hammond Percussion setting and its sound. >>>



Fascinating info, Stephen - this explains a lot! Thanks.

Maybe check out some of Vosse’s writings. Not really sure when it was first mentioned that songs would blend into one another.

In case anyone wonders about the CAPTION gone missing:

>"WAS it ELIOTs toilet I saw?"<

Yes, it was. But U  DIDn't see the next palindrome!:

>"T. Eliot NIXES sex in toilet!"<

Guilty as charged: American Author T.S. Eliot makes me all PALINDROMISTy-eyed!
The following limerick, however - ALSO written by W.H. Auden plays with popular confusion that "The Mill On The Floss" was written by T.S. Eliot, when in fact  it was by his english (female!) namesake: GEORGE Eliot. Small wonder that Thomas is at a loss:

 T.S. Eliot is quite at a loss
when clubwomen bustle across
        at literary teas
        crying - "What, if you please
did you mean by "The Mill On The Floss?"
