Fantastic show tonight folks. Big thanks to both performers and audience alike, thank you all for your support. Huge thanks to @brianlarsen for another super job at hosting the event.
And a call out to @Rossco01 as without Jason bringing the idea of an online open mic to the table, as the early COVID Lockdowns started, we would not be celebrating our 20th edition.
Well done everyone, another terrific show and a worthy landmark 20th!
Looking forward to see the last few performances in the recording, the standard was through the roof.
Good work @brianlarsen for smooth and fun hosting, @nzmetal for tech godliness and @TheMadman_tobyjenner for continuing to herd cats like a “one man and his dog” champion! And in advance for @jkahn for sorting our recording, hope you had a terrific anniversary.
Editing it now, although editing is very light based on @brianlarsen and @nzmetal’s request to keep it “as live” (which I am all for!) - just fixing volume as I watch it to bring the quiet performers up to level. So should be online in a couple of hours.
Anniversary morning was great thank you Although wish I could have been at the OM!
Hah - ok. Let’s leave it in. I’m looking forward to seeing if it was as bad as it was in my mind.
So frustrating! And not the first time it’s happened. I’m still learning the technology and ‘setup’ - and there are stumbles along the way. All part of the journey.
Goodness gracious me, Toby created the Topic and JK dropped the recording in as a reply already, you guys sure are in a rush @jkahn please can you also include the link to the chat file and then Toby and I will race to see who gets to edit it into the Topic First Post
As for not recognising SftD, JK, I’ll give you a pass based on age and the Stones not having the same general mass appeal of the Beatles But seriously, it’s the Beggars Banquet album opener. I’m unashamedly a lover of the Stones, especially the albums from their great run of 4 from '68-'72 (their greatest hits compilations aren’t too bad), but would advocate those 4 are worth a listen at least once, which you may or may not enjoy.
Is it too quick? It’s been hours since the OM… I just emailed you the chat log, I always forget about that and can’t upload it direct to the community.
Thanks updated it. And @DavidP - the Stones were well before my time, I know a couple of their songs from hearing them in movies or ads but really don’t know a lot of it! Or have the inclination to dig deeper, they don’t really do it for me.
No worries, I was just having a Sunday morning laugh. All good.
Chat sorted, thanks
Fair enough. I feel similar about subsequent generations … Grunge, Brit Pop … I find a lot of what folk here rave about to be nothing special.
Every now and then, I’ll listen to Robert Johnson, Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian and the like. Will be interesting to see what from the second half of the 20th century stands the test of time and gets some attention in another 20-30 years.
All good. Fun to talk about and dip into for a listen now and then.
