ahhhh yes, it is once again Sunday morning in Sundogistan and that means #jazz

as @yacht got me thinkin' about Patrice Rushen first thing this morning, I'm of a mood to listen to some of the undersung women of jazz today, including the super talented Ms. Rushen, but starting with the brief recording career of Jutta Hipp.

So, if some tones and grooves from women with moves might be what soothes your end-of-the-weekend blues, feel free to follow along over on @nowplaying or streaming on radio.reclaim.technology/strea

:blobpats: :cofepats: :blobpats:

Update: predictably this album sucks a lot but “Valley Nights” is pretty smooth. This album was really gunning for “most lyrics”

I learned today that “I Wanna Be Your Lover” by Prince is about Patrice Rushen and I think that’s very cute

(That song has an 81.5 yachtski score btw, yacht rock to the hilt)

Show thread

It’s very weird when the only place you can find a song is on one of those NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL or GREATEST EVER comps. Normally it’s just the most basic obvious shit but like, is “Love You Like I Never Loved Before” by John O’Banion part of the GREATEST EVER SOFT ROCK? idk but it’s on there and apparently no other CD in the world

guess i gotta listen to the... bernie... taupin... solo album? ??????

no joke probably 30% of all albums on had al schmitt on the boards

Show thread

RIP to al schmitt who engineered basically every yacht rock album, from aja to toto iv to albums by larsen-feiten, randy crawford, george benson...

thinking about switching the ortofon 2m red for a goldring E3 per this review whathifi.com/us/best-buys/acce so if you're in the market for a good entry-level cart for your turntable i'd be happy to part with the red

there are probably hashtags for this sort of thing but i don't know what they are
