Melting Pot

kpfk-logo

Always nice to begin Summer in our traditional style with the first song that comes to my mind when this season comes around, Arthur Lee and Love’s “the Good Humor Man He Sees Everything Like This” from Forever Changes. There’s a sprinkling of other Summer songs in the mix, as well as new tunes from the Pastels, Omar, Myron & E, Quadron, Bosq, Am & Shawn Lee, SoKo and a strikingly modern new album from Booker T. Jones. In the second hour we have an interview with Chelsea and Justine of the Summer Twins (separate post to follow) where they play several songs and we chat about the group and their sound. Next week we’ll be on vinyl for a bit, but most of our time will be given over to Myron & E, for an interview and an all 45 vinyl DJ set!

    does "the good humor man he sees everything like this" song on Love's album, "Forever Changes" skip intentionally or is it a manufacturers flaw or??

    Do all of the LP's of various release dates skip?

    Please let me know, just bought a 180 wt. LP….

    If you're refering to the way the song ends, with the horns, that's intentionally created in the studio, likely through manipulating the recording tape. It struck me almost like what a DJ might do with a crossfader, but that is intentional and is on every version I've ever heard.
