CoolSonics 069 ::: Thanks to the original taper, ole one-eared Yod himself. Stay out of his way on the baseline when he's running & hoist a glass of fine whiskey while listening to his efforts, almost 30 years on! ::: Corrections welcome ::: This is one of the earliest Rain Parade shows around. Once you get over the ouch from the little tuning problem on the first song & get into the 2nd song, you start getting off. Paisley pop or neo-psychedelic or whatever your fancy for a catagory, the music is elevating. The band's first album & EP are 2 of the best recordings of this 80s genre (whatever you want to call it). Don't miss them!

More recordings on the way now that I am able to make up for years of slow netspeed. Kudos to Zongo for life support & Lochner for mikes & much more. A bow to Fast Freddie for runnin' Video Dick's Record Emporium with the bathroom office full of tape decks. Thanks to Hanwaker (few among us can keep his pace) for over 30 years of trading & friendship. Mountains of gratitude to Davmar, D.White, Sanchez, Elliot, The Florida Kid, Kloiber, Zingg, JTW, Bershaw, Boston Gold, Weeks, Dixon, Moore, Gough & SO many more for all that collecting & sharing... Royal thanks to The Man In The Palace, Doc Tinker, Brinkhoffs, Barely Eatin', Reel Master Gaule, Parrish & all the traders who housed me thru my music acquisition & travel years. Hats off to Brother Kent, Uncle Jake, Little Queenie (& her neighbor Frank) & his honor Ptomaine Thomas. Glasses raised to Byron for musical horizon expansion & much obliged to J & Thurston for keepin' my concert fires burnin' since my continental shift. Thanks to the Mods for keepin' DIME alive. Enjoy, share, give, spread peace. Yers truly, Kneesfudd
