One day I’ll post the picture of Brian Protheroe AND ME when we met up in London about 8 years ago. He took me into the BBC and we had coffee (“What’s going on with Trump? It’s crazy!”) and later we met up with him and his wife and we four attended a play, and then went briefly to a pub.

I became a fan in the latter 70s, and then at the beginning of the internet I was practicing my coding by creating the BP Web Page. He’d been off everyone’s radar for decades. Then, a small company released his three albums in a CD box. I dropped them a note. They wrote back “he loves it!” And then we became friends.

And then his sometime lyricist Martin Duncan and I got in contact, so I have some of the original pages that were used for his lyrics…

But BP is very tech savvy, and still making music that you can find on Apple Music, etc. We co-run the FB Fan page now (I did the title imaging), but it’s really his baby. Kinda an amazing story, but - as Anne Elk would say, “It is mine.”



That is pretty amazing! Lucky YOU!

Glad you remembered to post this up. I've been mildly distracted lately and forgot to nudge you.

As always for your "headphones only" mixes I abide and use them to listen. Great experience, I'm amazed at all the cool things I hear that I would otherwise miss. Wish I was doing this long ago. It was liking a hiking excursion, the trail went down and then back up. My notes along the path of discovery. 

* Bowie track - I felt dirty listening to this, not sure why
* Gilbert - I enjoyed the background vocals and the lyrics were excellent
* Glen Campbell - funny my notes says "reminds me of Glen Campbell"
* Dear Prudence - I concur with Lazy on this one. I like the stripped down version better than the White Album version.
* Valley Winter Song - "Snow is coming down on our New England town" the new Cold Miser theme song as I am in the process of relocating to New Hampshire
* Elbow - I really dig these guys (Thanks William for the turn-on!) and this song especially
* Brian Protheroe - I thought this had a Ben Folds sound. You must really like this guy. I've been negligent in my promise to check more of him out. 
* Utopia - I haven't heard this song in years and was instantly seat dancing. Love Kasim's vocals
* Chicago - Great Terry Kath licks here
* Free - Odd cover by Bowie. Was Belew playing with him on this I wonder? 
* Gino Vanelli - I felt transported into a 1980's MTV video
* Good Vibrations - Still sounds Cutting Edge today

Kudos for putting this all together for us while you sail around the world. They say great art is sometimes made under pressure. Most enjoyable!

This was a pretty seamless listening experience, and a bit of a departure from your usual prog mixes. You managed to find some deep tracks I hadn't heard even from artists I'm pretty familiar with.

Like the first Bowie bit. Nicely theatrical, an intriguing bit. Where is this from?

Dear Prudence is one of the best things Lennon ever did, and it's intriguing to see how close his original vision for the song was to where it wound up.

I clearly haven't paid enough attention to Fountains of Wayne.

And Bowie doing a cover? Sounds almost like a '90s club remix, but it heads off in too many interesting directions.

Is the playlist missing a song? Sounds for all the world like a Zappa instrumental, not Steely Dan.

I thought Good Vibrations was strictly Brian Wilson's vision. Surprised he had his own mix.

Overall a very pleasant way to spend an evening. Well done!



Bowie is from Outside, where he got Eno and his usual crew together and created a “song hypercycle” - there’s a small story that goes with it about him being in charge of investigating Art Crimes. Example line upon finding a mutilated body: “It was murder, but was it art.” Includes some spoken interludes where he plays characters from his story. Pretty certain it was the beginning of something he didn’t follow up on. Maybe one day.

That cover of Free is lots of fun with plenty of punch. From his wedding album that swiftly went off the market when the label folded. “Black Tie/White Noise” which I really like. 

Yep, that’s Steely Dan doing Your Gold Teeth. Studio version from Katy Lied, not quite finished and will have different vocals later, and after the Denny Dias guitar solo you hear Fagen give the highest praise.
Thanks for listening, and we now return you to your day, which is already in progress.

First the obvious: you absolutely nailed the theme. As usual that starts with the artwork, which looks AI-ish but could have come off the side of an airbrushed sin-bin van from my youth. This feels like a reverse time capsule—step inside the Dr. Who booth and back thru a beaded  doorway into a smoky blacklight-lit pad full of groovy.

I confess my first listen was macrodosing during a surreal workday. It was the perfect accompaniment to a very weird day. Standout tracks:

ELO: some critic once described them as having deeply affected by Sgt. Pepper, but I'm hearing the White Album. Was not familiar with this track, which makes me wonder what else I've missed about this band.
I hadn't realized how psychedelic XTC was! Adds a new dimension. Mind-expanding, if you will.
Elephant Stone: Never heard of these guys, but digging the Indian vocals and drumming.
Ian Brown: We get to track 9 before I hear a song I'm familiar with, even if I don't know the artist. Lovely.
Fountains of Wayne: OK, this one is familiar too, but never really absorbed the psychedelic aspect of the song. Really works well in this context.
West Indian Girl: This gentle tune was exactly what I needed to take the edge of the day.
Ween: Could have sworn this was XTC again. Makes me curious to explore more.
Broken Bells: Never associated them with psychedelia, another dimension to a band I'm obviously not familiar enough with.
Temples: Could have fit your jangly Rickenbacker disc.

This exploration was impressive in its scope and breadth. A great introduction to this sub-genre. It also reminds me of the impact one band can have on music: The Beatles' fingerprints are all over this.

This will be a great party mix. Hat's off, lid flipped, horizon widened.
I'm blushing.

Thanks for the nice review.
 I'm almost alone in my little music world. My wife is my critic... she doesn't like Psychedelic music at all. So I got a thumbs down from her.
That's okay. This is one of just one thing we don't agree on. 
Others in my circle ask me "What are you listening to?"
But then they wonder "Where do you find this stuff?"
Here... I'm concerned I lean to the "Pop" side to much.
Hey! I'm happy!

That Elephant Stone track... I actually discovered it here at Paradise.
That group is named after the Stone Roses song.
Ian Brown was with the Stone Roses. Who I just love.
William, here at Paradise, turned me on to West Indian Girl a while back.
The Broken Bells song is so much like "Cabinessence" by the Beach Boys... Brian should have sued!
I almost included that song into this mix...

I finally got turned on and tuned out last night. Mrs Miser was out so I had the headphones to myself to drop into the mix properly. Notes from my "trip"

- 10538 Overture - Love a lesser heard track, this one has Sgt Peppers written all over it.
- Dukes of the Stratosphere - Never heard of these guys, cool band name. Very XTCish I thought
- Apples in Stereo - I think I used this one on a past Mini Miser, this apparently is the only song I know by them. Interested in finding more of their stuff.
- Red Brick Dream - Speaking of XTC, kinda cool to hear them step out of their Power Pop suit for a bit. 
- Don't Stop - Is this a cover? Sounds really familiar but I can't place where from though. 
- Elephant Stone - Good RP tune, I like their sound. I'll have to keep my ears open to hear if William plays more of them. 
- Supercollider - I've said it before, I'll say it again...I'm pretty sure I'm the only MCC member to have bought patio furniture from Fountains of Wayne
- All My Friends - Good vibes, I got a contact high listing to this tune. 
- Free - I could have used this on my Retirement mix...Oh wait it's a breakup song, never mind! 
- Standing in the Rain - Felt like I was rolling thru a Poppy Field
- Tame Impala - Good psych to close out and really neat mix.

Great concept, nice to hear newer psychedelic stuff. One of the best artwork covers EVAH! Did you create it yourself or pillage it from somewhere? Glad your daughter helped you get it published. A good CD to pop in for chill out time, almost makes me wish I still partook in the medicinal products. 

I'm glad you enjoyed it.
You sir are the celebrity of the MCC by your purchases at Fountains of Wayne!



Thanks for the compliment on the artwork.
I hunt down stuff months before I go "into production" for these units. And "grab, pillage " things I think might work. I had about four alternates for each of the three sides.  It is the fun side to making these CD's for me. With an Apple computer... it's real easy to find and apply these things.
Amanda has given me lots pointers in the past. I usually do it all now. This time I had a communication problem with the CD printer and my Apple computer. She a wizard with that most times. She did that workaround but it wasn't what I was wanting to do. So everyone got the "compromised" print.
I'm going to figure out what's going on there. Or Amanda will have more time to kick the printer.

- 10538 Overture - Love a lesser heard track, this one has Sgt Peppers written all over it.
- Dukes of the Stratosphere - Never heard of these guys, cool band name. Very XTCish I thought
- Apples in Stereo - I think I used this one on a past Mini Miser, this apparently is the only song I know by them. Interested in finding more of their stuff.
- Red Brick Dream - Speaking of XTC, kinda cool to hear them step out of their Power Pop suit for a bit. 
- Don't Stop - Is this a cover? Sounds really familiar but I can't place where from though. 
- Elephant Stone - Good RP tune, I like their sound. I'll have to keep my ears open to hear if William plays more of them. 
- Supercollider - I've said it before, I'll say it again...I'm pretty sure I'm the only MCC member to have bought patio furniture from Fountains of Wayne
- All My Friends - Good vibes, I got a contact high listing to this tune. 
- Free - I could have used this on my Retirement mix...Oh wait it's a breakup song, never mind! 
- Standing in the Rain - Felt like I was rolling thru a Poppy Field
- Tame Impala - Good psych to close out and really neat mix.

Great concept, nice to hear newer psychedelic stuff. One of the best artwork covers EVAH! Did you create it yourself or pillage it from somewhere? Glad your daughter helped you get it published. A good CD to pop in for chill out time, almost makes me wish I still partook in the medicinal products.
