listening to "Standin' in the Rain" so much growing up, probably made me eventually move to Washington... two minute and seven second intro for a 4:19 song -- crazy

I never noticed that, I love vocal songs with ~> 50% instrumental.

Great album.  I listened to The Jungle quite a bit.  “And they danced!...”. Jeff Lynne is a brilliant producer.

Me:  Hum —first album in over 22 years!  Shoegaze heaven.

Yeah, it’s good, you definitely need to check it out.  That said, it has made me start thinking of revisiting their back catalogue as well.  I don’t listen to their material enough.

I’m I misreading Dylan’s newest? Feels stronger than just a great record. Like a reflective, encompassing, inclusive goodbye (he’ll outlive us all).

How did I not know about Jonell Mosser or this homage to Townes van Zandt?

Followed by

Which, IMO, is their best album and has one of the best, if not the best, opening track of any album.

Been there, but yeah not in a while :D 

Around the same time as Joy to the World was first getting airplay. my Mother made me and my two brothers bell bottoms with matching large vests (not unlike the guy to the far left on the album cover). We were the hippest dudes in school. Mine was rainbow stripes, so even before the LGBTQ community adopted the rainbow flag (1978), I was flying the colors!

Life can be difficult growing up with a "hipness" level far exceeding those around you! 🤪

The question is, did you have one of these?

Love the jacket-over-shoulder, vested look Steve! 

I had a pair of pants in the 70's that was in essence a patchwork of....patches of pants of REALLY ugly design.  Thank goodness there are no pictures, I remember hating them even as a young kid....  I recall reds, stripes, plaids, etc.  STILL working out the issues from wearing those! 😃
