Good show, Eli.
I enjoyed the Ian Lloyd interview. I hope he won't mind if I say that I NEVER liked "Brother Louie"! After the perfect pop sound of the previous single "I'm Coming Home" (and its also excellent B-side "You Told Me") in 1972 I was very much looking forward to their next 45 but from the start I just didn't like "Brother Louie"...I guess I'm in the minority with this opinion, but it just didn't sound like the Stories sound I liked so much and had come to expect and look forward to. Sorry, Ian...but since you didn't write it, I'm hoping you won't mind me saying this.

But I loved the later 45 "Slip Away". A great sound, and with The Cars' involvement...more pop perfection!

Honestly, I have felt the same way. I always liked "I'm Coming Home", but was never a fan of "Brother Louie", and Ian himself said the song was a "departure" from his usual style.

I was tempted to play his NEW remake of "Brother Louie", though. I like the new instrumentation on it, it sounds like it was done with humor. It wasn't the song he suggested I play from his new CD, though.

I'm sorry I was too exhausted from working my two paying jobs to go out and brave the weather to see him at the Cantab last night.

How often that seems to happen: the biggest and most played hit by a favorite artist turns out to be your least personal favorite. And it seems especially frustrating when that big hit isn't even written by the artist.

I too declined travelling out to see Ian on Saturday night. I hope he'll return soon.

Don't forget, Eli, that we'd love to hear more Stories & Ian Lloyd next week and whenever you can play more (hint: wish you'd played "Slip Away" last week!)
