DFO Radio: Intros and Outros

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

One of the downsides to the “digital revolution” that has made albums available at a snap of your fingertips (assuming you’ve trained your Google assistant or Amazon’s Alexa to recognize the gesture) within seconds is that album art is no longer a thing.  The above image is taken from Led Zeppelin’s “In Through the Out Door”, which actually had six different variations.  Cover art had been evolving to keep pace with recording technology, of course, as the big broad canvases of LP’s gave way to the multi-folded liners of cassettes. One of my favorite things that was done with liner notes had nothing to do with the actual artwork – it was a track put together by Sublime acknowledging all the people who had helped make 40 oz. to Freedom happen.

Awarding the pick of the week was NOT an easy decision to make, so I made it easy on myself by giving it to the first song I encountered which deserved it – Sharkbait’s pick of “Freebird”.  Honorable mentions go to Cuntler for Zeppelin’s “Over the Hills and Far Away” and to myself for Weezer’s “Only in Dreams”.

Why was the video version of Tool — Sober swapped put for the Lullaby Renditions cut? Not saying I hate it … … … just kinda disappointed … and oddly sleepy.

Shit, how did I not post “Lucky Man”? Oh right it would have been two weeks in a row.

When I showed up late to the party yesterday, I spent the entire time scrolling through, completely shocked that no one had posted Free Bird. I was already queuing it up when I finally found it as the first post.

Great hustle this week, folks!
