14. Also, your name should be "Archaeon." The word Archae would be a plural of something.

But please forgive Taterguy. In real life his name is Don Rickles and all his friends are either dead or are pretending to be so that he'll leave them alone.

16. Archae is a shortening of "archaeopteryx."

I'm just kind of fond of the critter.

17. In Tater's defense, the orphans he tutors at the home kind of expect it now.

One of his favorite jokes is when he goes, "Hey why do they call this place a 'Home' when you little brats live here? I thought it took parents to make a home! Ha-ha-ha-ha!!"

And then they all kind of give up a scrappy little hide-the-pain sort of laugh, except for little Timmy, cause he's kind of slow. And so Taterguy helpfully adds:

"That's supposed to be funny... cause your parents are dead."

9. Weird. I don't remember any order for the first hundred or so I bought.

 

I still have all of my vinyl, and a working Technics turntable hooked into the stereo system. I do remember buying the 8-track of Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen "Tales from the Ozone". That was probably 1979 or 80.

6. I don't know your sister

but I think I like her! I have some fond Loverboy memories although I only had them on mixed cassette tapes.

Does she have any Romantics in that box?

What's not to love about Supertramp?

8. I don't know if any Romantics are in the box.

But just about everything else is, from Neil Young to ZZ Top.

You see, these are her husband's records too.

And this is box #2, out of 5 boxes!

20. Second Helping is their Masterpiece Album. Excellent stuff on that one

Second Helping is a 1974 album by Lynyrd Skynyrd. It was the band's second album, and featured its biggest hit single, "Sweet Home Alabama", an answer song to Neil Young's "Alabama" and "Southern Man". The song reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in August 1974. This was the first Lynyrd Skynyrd album to feature the band's trademark triple guitar attack.

The album reached #12 on the Billboard album charts. It was certified Gold on 9/20/1974, Platinum and 2x Platinum on 7/21/1987 by the R.I.A.A.


Side one
1. "Sweet Home Alabama" (Ed King, Gary Rossington, Ronnie Van Zant) 4:43
2. "I Need You" (King, Rossington, Van Zant) 6:55
3. "Don't Ask Me No Questions" (Rossington, Van Zant) 3:26
4. "Workin' for MCA" (King, Van Zant) 4:49

Side two
1.
5. "The Ballad of Curtis Loew" (Allen Collins, Van Zant) 4:51
6. "Swamp Music" (King, Van Zant) 3:31
7. "The Needle and the Spoon" (Collins, Van Zant) 3:53
8. "Call Me the Breeze" (J. J. Cale) 5:09

21. Yup, recorded that one.

Working on "Street Survivors" now.

But the last song on that album is a Blues song, "Ain't No Good Life."

I have this feeling white guys just can't do Blues.

Led Zeppelin really sounds terrible when they try to do Blues.

28. Street Survivors is a great album

Their cover of Merle Haggard's "Honky Tonk Night Time Man" is awesome.
