Article: Stunning record collection including every chart single ever made which was crammed into collector’s tiny house goes for £70,000

Summary…

They include the best selling single of all time – Elton John’s ‘Candle in the Wind’ – and iconic number ones such as Abba’s Waterloo and Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

Keith started his collection at the age of 15 and quickly became obsessed by buying new release singles.


Blather…

This sort of longitudinal effort takes genius-level persistence. The collection is a staggering accomplishment and a fantastical story.

The Heat of the Moment

Instagram gato espectacular, elgringofeo, dropped a post this week featuring Asia’s record Alpha.

He ended it with this query: So what’s the most sentimentally evocative record in your collection, groovers?

It jogged my memory into what became a frothy nostalgic marathon. Rather than clogging his Insta feed with my recollective rambling, I offer it here…

…for you…

…my dear reader…

…thanks Ma, for your continued support!

My first week of overnight camp of any kind unfolded during the summer of my 11th year (1983 A.D.). The reason was an all-boys basketball camp. The setting was pastoral Paynesville, MN. By this point in my life, my parents were still optimistic at the prospects of a white kid of average height and speed from Shorewood, MN making it to the NBA. Hence, they sent me off for a week of intensive basketballin’.

It was an elite camp for boys with NCAA and NBA aspirations. Needless to say, I’ve enjoyed a nearly 30-year career in IT.

The campground was situated in and around the shores of glorious Rice Lake. There was an all-girls volleyball camp across the lake, because of course there was. Although I didn’t know it at the time—thank Buddha—the whole setting had a strong Camp Crystal Lake vibe. And while the sports camp experience was largely what I’d expected, extreme homesickness notwithstanding, something wholly unexpected happed on the last night.

On Thursday evening, just before we were to be fetched by our parents the subsequent morning, a dance took place. It was held in the massive Quonset hut at the far corner of the campgrounds. This half-moon shaped, galvanized steel, pole barn served multiple functions: mess hall, arcade featuring Pong, Space Invaders, and Battlezone, and general gathering/loitering space. The wooded area behind it was apparently an ideal spot for a clandestine smoke break.

Remember Battlezone?

Just inside the huge shed was a ramshackle stage that appeared barely structurally sound. Perched atop the stage was a long, once white, now dingy gray cafeteria table. Sitting atop the table was a receiver and an 8-track deck. A random selection of tapes were scattered about the table as well. I recall AC DC’s Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap, Aerosmith’s Toys in the Attic, and the Eagle’s Hotel California among the heap of classic rock essentials. While the majority of tapes were of the AOR persuasion, most genres were represented—no Polka, however.

The 8-track was wired to a receiver that resembled some relic unearthed from an archeological dig. With the exception of the volume knob, it was so dusty that making out the lettering above any of the knobs was impossible. The shed’s gravel and dirt floor was the likely culprit; there was no foundation. The grimy HiFi setup was connected to massive P.A. speakers via wires haphazardly strung all over the place.

Perched atop (and wired into) the receiver was a grey metal astatic desktop mic. It was meant for official announcements from the camp staffers and the like. Unsurprisingly, this mic was often swiped by the campers to make impromptu announcements like, “This song sucks!” or “Journey is for pussies!” or “Jeff farted!” For adolescent boys, there is something utterly irresistible about hearing your voice broadcast in stereo for the masses. Even if just to announce who broke wind.

During our allotted nightly free time, anyone could walk up and cram a tape into the maw of the deck. The effect of this DJ-by-committee was a schizophrenic playlist that could swing from “Big Balls” to “Rhinestone Cowboy” to “Forever in Blue Jeans” and back again. Everyone endured the mandatory compilations whether they cared for the sonic whiplash or not.

On that fateful Thursday evening, one of the assistant coaches who fancied himself a regular Wolfman Jack was tapped to play a curated batch of tunes for a big dance. Since the boys at basketball camp needed dance partners, the girls from the volleyball camp were bussed over for the occasion.

I recall not being exactly aware of deodorant at this point in my life. I was aware of my own young man stank, however. I also recall all the older dudes talking about how they had to, “Shower, shit, and shave,” before the dance, “Cuz there would be chicks.”. I’d gone for a dip in the lake just before dinner, so I figured I was clean enough. And while I didn’t have a single unused shirt left in my duffle bag, I did have a Cutter insect repellent stick. I rubbed it under my arms and on the armpit area of my least stinky shirt to at least “freshen” things up a bit.

Satisfied, I marched up to the pole barn.

The scene was straight out of any ‘80s film with a “big dance”—boys milling on one side, girls tittering on the other. I noticed some strands of multi-color Christmas lights which appeared out of nowhere illuminating one wall. An orange Igloo beverage cooler surrounded by paper cups stood sentry at the end of a long table. There was a piece of masking tape across the front that read “LEMONADE”.

While the DJ played ballad after ballad from the likes of REO Speedwagon, Styx, and Journey—the holy triad of AOR sap peddlers—the girls mostly drank lemonade and chattered while the boys mostly lined up at the three arcade consoles. I stood against the wall near an older kid whom I had befriended. We just leaned there and took it all in.

The DJ finally broke the monotony by rollin’ a few faster tunes. This at least drew some of the girls away from the lemonade table as they formed sporadic boogying clusters. A very few brave fellas joined them.

As I stood against the wall next to my new pal, he bent down, cupped his right hand around his mouth, and said, “Just go ask any girl to dance. She’ll be too nervous to say no.”

“Really?” I questioned.

“Yup!” he assured.

And probably for the first time in my life, I did an extroverted thing: I walked up to a random girl (about my height) in one of the sporadic clusters and asked her to dance. He was correct, whether she wanted to or not, she was indeed too nervous to say no. Or maybe she fancied the scent of my Eau De Cutter? I’ll never know.

“Heat of the Moment” poured out of the P.A. speakers, and I danced with that nervous-but-willing girl like I knew what I was doing. She danced back at me. We danced at each other. And it was a completely innocent and wonderful four minutes that I’ve never forgotten. My success with that nervous-but-willing girl gave me the courage to ask a slew of girls to dance. Much to my surprise, they all said yes.

When we returned to the bunk house where we slept, I’d managed to impress even my senior bunk mates. I got a few high fives and slaps on the shoulder for my prolific light-fantastic-trippin’ with the ladies from the volleyball camp.

I’ve been a huge Asia fan ever since.

My brother and I periodically discuss this theory we have. We’ve posited that in the afterlife, one has access to a video library of one’s entire existence from birth to death. And any moment can be viewed from a third-person vantage point just by popping that particular tape into the cosmic VCR.

When I reach the afterlife and can review my entire existence on this astral plane, Basketball Camp Dance is one of the first videos I want to watch.

The next vid I plan to review will FINALLY reveal what in the hell actually happened to our old man’s crystal ice bucket on that fateful weekend in the summer of ’88.

But that’s an entirely different story…

Article: A Peek Inside the World’s Greatest Record Store

Summary…

“He has a store called R&B Records in this sketchy neighborhood out past West Philly,” Levinson told me. “The building is listing like the Tower of Pisa because he’s got five million records in there. It’s likely the biggest record store in the world and collectors fly in from the U.K., Germany, Japan and wherever else, in order to buy from Val. But if they say something wrong, or he doesn’t like their attitude, he explodes in an unbelievable rage and throws them out of the store.”

Holy crap! And I thought the demand for 45s was dropping off…

MTV Top 20 Video Countdown Archives – ’80s Edition

In my relentless quest to create every perfect playlist the world will ever need, I scour a lot of lists on a lot of sites in a lot of places. The various music streaming services can be quite helpful with their “Genius Mixes” and “Recommended” features. Sites like Top40Weekly.com and Allmusic.com can be invaluable thanks to the absence of paywalls. YouTube almighty has also proven terribly useful from time to time.

Hence, I figured creating a playlist of tunes that appeared on MTV’s much vaunted Top 20 Video Countdown would be a breeze. I was shocked to find such a prospect to be not so breezy.

Apparently, there is no spot on the Interwebz where the exhaustive listing of all those old charts have been gathered, collated, and displayed for the world to enjoy (and scour). This became quite obvious as I began to dig into the following UKMIX.org thread…

MTV Top 20 Video Countdown (US)

First off, that fact that this discussion thread exists seems to prove this information didn’t (and doesn’t) exist anywhere else. If it did, someone in the thread would’ve surely pointed it out.

Next, this thread is at 54 pages deep (and still deepening). Besides the ’80s, it includes much data from the ’90s and ’00s—neither of which interest me personally, except 1990 proper. But by all means, dig in if those epochs interest you.

Side note: I entered college in September 1990. At that point my priorities shifted drastically to: maintaining a 3.0 GPA (to avoid losing my parent-paid car insurance and thus my car), getting drunk, and getting laid—not necessarily in that order. While I never stopped listening to and loving music, I stopped following Billboard charts and MTV and the like.

Finally, one contributor in particular: azul120 should be compensated in gratitude, glory, or gold for their contributions to this little grassroots project. I mean…I bow to your prowess and fortitude whoever you are—BRAVO! And azul120 wasn’t the only all-star contributor by any stretch.

While it’s terribly interesting to read through 54 pages of posts in regards to this topic, I really just wanted the CliffsNotes. I just wanted to peruse the lists. I wanted the charts!

In that spirit, you know how the saying goes…

[Disclaimer 1: it all started as the Top 20 Video Countdown on 3/9/84 with Mark Goodman as host]

[Disclaimer 2: everything presented below is more-or-less in the format I found it. Different contributors provided different details.]

[Disclaimer 3: some contributors went on to correct some of the lists in subsequent posts. I did my best, but I likely missed some of those specific updates. Mine is really a meta-analysis of their very detailed research. Again, feel free to pour over all of it yourself, and kudos to them!]

MTV Top 20 Video Countdown Archives – ’80s Edition – Prologue

At some point today, I had a fairly innocuous idea. It went a little like this…

I’m going to fashion a playlist based off of the much vaunted “MTV Top 20 Video Countdown”—GODAMMIT!

Blake Charles Donley

More accurately, my playlist will be based off of the much vaunted “MTV Top 20 Video Countdown” and wrap on or about 1/1/90 (for obvious reasons). You see, after entering college in the fall of 1990, MTV was not really on my radar. Neither were charts and lists. It was mostly getting drunk, getting laid, and getting a degree. I still loved music, but I got less geeky about it (and everything) for a spell.

But fear naught! Now that I’m (officially) old, I’ve been in the throes of a wicked case of nostalgia for a long spell. I’m back in full-on music geek mode big-time! It has something to do with me getting so goddam old or current music getting so goddam decrepit or both.

Being the clueless dolt I generally tend to be, I assumed crafting such a playlist would be no fat task. 

I was wrong.

Waaaay wrong…

Inexplicably, there is no archive anywhere on the Interwebz that chronicles the weekly top 20 charts from the channel previously known as “Music Television”, not even on their own dizzying website. In fact, it appears that the channel previously known as “Music Television” has morphed into another streaming service like Netflix, Prime, or Hulu—what the actual?

This bummed me out, and shocked me, immensely. But then I stumbled upon a discussion thread on the UKMIX discussion board—you likely know them by their tagline: “FOR THE MUSIC // BY THE FANS”. I know I didn’t.

https://www.ukmix.org/forum/chart-discussion/chart-analysis/72594-mtv-top-20-video-countdown-us

On 8/8/2010, user: azul120 (who is the runaway superstar of this thread, BTW) suggests the following…

“Hi all. I found this forum via a web search for the MTV Top 20 Countdown, and considered starting up this thread for discussion about and posting of old charts anyone might have lying about. (Grybop said he had a few from late ’89.) For the latter, would ascending (20-1) or descending (1-20) be preferable?”

azul120

What follows is a 54 page thread that continues to this day. It’s nothing short of staggering in both depth and breadth. With a profound sense of awe and jealousy, all I could do was sit back and bask in it’s utter glory.

The determined participants on this thread have mined hours of YouTube vids, newspaper articles, and arcvive.org minutia in an effort to reconstruct the various weekly MTV Top 20 Video Countdowns from its inception in 1984 through some point the mid 2010s. The effort that has gone into this thread cannot be understated. It likely represents tens of thousands of collective hours of research followed with endless typing. The result is the chronicling of the weekly charts for this once great show on this once great channel.

Anyway, you are probably wondering why in the hell I’m blathering on and on about this colossal achievement. Well, it all gets back to that playlist idea.

Currently, the only way to amass the necessary intel to craft my playlist is to read through all 54 pages of posts. I figured if I’m going to do that, I may as well summarize (a.k.a. recreate) the charts in a straight chronological list. I’ve already read through 80% of this thread to ensure no one had done this. As far as I can tell, to-date, no one has.

Enter yours truly…

I started a post that will simply display the charts on a week-by-week basis for the decade that was the ’80s. I’m nearly to 1986.

Essentially, I’m doing a metanalysis of the painstaking research that has been done to-date by the intrepid contributors to this epic thread. Frankly, as far as grassroots research goes, this might be the best example in the history of ever—the gold standard, if you will. The work that went into this is jaw-dropping, truly.

I cannot thank the wonderous souls who contributed enough!

Ever!!

Bless all of you!!!

I’m going to keep chipping away at my metanalysis until I can publish it on this very site. Then the playlist will come henceforth. In the meantime, rock on! Cheers!

The Great HiFi/Record Rooms of the Interwebs

In my world, my wife and I are finishing the basement at our southern home. Part of that process is creating a HiFi listening room that will house my 7,000 LPs and one of my Pioneer stereos.

In an effort to garner a modicum of inspiration, I’ve been perusing the great listening rooms of the Interwebs. There are many. Here are a few…

How to create your own listening room

Summary…

As the world spends more time at home than ever before, it’s never been easier to buy a high-quality audio and turntable set-up to create your own audio room – no matter what your price range is.

Beyond technology and budget, it is also essential to consider various elements about the space you’ll be putting your set-up into.

The information in this article is a wealth of general obviousness. It’s the photos that are dazzling and somewhat inspirational.

Return of the Songwriters Festival on 30A(men)

Well, after “the lost year”, the 30A Songwriter’s Festival returned…with a vengeance.

Accordingly, we returned to our little slice of heaven (the condo at 202 Sago Sands) with the usual suspects (in laws) and a pair of newbies (dear friends Brian & Allison). We arrived “fortified”…

The traditional first toast out on the balcony amid a backdrop of stars and a cacophony of wind and waves commenced shortly thereafter.

But first, a note about, “You look like someone famous.”

Sport a somewhat unconventional hairdo, don a pair of cool shades, and wear a scarf, and I swear people will think you are someone famous. This phenomenon began at the 2019 festival when I started wearing scarves regularly. I had more than zero people approach me and ask if I was “a famous person”. While it’s flattering, it’s also fairly hilarious at this point. I’m easily the least famous person I know.

Famous person sighting #1: as we walked toward the registration tent in Watercolor to get our wristbands, a dude checking credentials at the entrance yelled (at me), “Lindsay Buckingham!” I politely replied, “Not quite.”

In his defense, it was dusky outside.

Anyway, due to the current state of affairs on planet earth, the schedule I’d laid out was shifting daily. As the resident “music expert” of the crew, it was my job to take a first pass at a plan of attack. We’d overheard one volunteer admit that the organizers received over 40 cancellations from performers. There is no telling how many ticket holders decided to sit out the festival, but that obviously didn’t hinder our efforts in the slightest.

#30afest takes place across 30 different venues over three days, so a little pre-planning is imparitive. Just showing up and winging it is a recipe for disappointment + disaster.

I’d originally had us slated to spend all of Friday evening in the Grayton Beach borough. But in the span of a week since I’d more-or-less nailed down the logistics, so much had changed that we decided to literally flip the script. Instead of Grayton Beach, we planned to spend the evening in Rosemary Beach. We made this south to north pole switcheroo with the express goal of seeing an artist we’d always managed to miss on our previous trips: Jeffery Steele.

To kick things off before the Friday night festivities, we chose to do a little rooftop drinking at the Pearl Hotel in Rosemary Beach. We were looking damn smashing!

Night #1 – Friday, January 14th

6:00 PM – 7:00 PM – Rosemary Beach Town Hall

This was an interesting grouping of artists. Steve Poltz stood out, because how could he not? He looks like the lovechild of Kid Rock and David Lee Roth. He offers no introductory fluff. And his half comedy half musical review was quite entertaining. To classify him as unconventional would be generous.

The other two singers were of an ilk that generally offers introspective folkish ditties that are of the “Cat’s in the Cradle” variety. Essentially, you write a song that offers a lyrical perspective on your day-to-day activities atop a three chord progression—not that there is anything wrong with that, nor that it’s not a wildly popular songwriting method.

It goes a little like this…

I needed to write
I was procrastinating
Watching cat vids on YouTube
Was much more fascinating


I buried my phone
I dug out my laptop
I put on the kettle
I started typing at a hat’s drop

Writing is life
Life is writing
What else is there
That’s so exciting

The words just flowed
The tea did as well
I couldn’t understand
Why I thought it’d be hell

Before you knew it
I’d written a lot
My tea was cold
But my prose was hot

Writing is life
Life is writing
What else is there
That’s so exciting

The issue with the expository approach to songcraft is that it’s what nearly everyone is doing. It’s the baseline. It’s the bare minimum. It’s expected. This doesn’t make it bad, it just tends to become tedious for the listener. I mean…we knew what we were getting into at a “songwriter’s festival”, but it’s totally ok to generalize and conceptualize a bit with the lyrics. Not every song has to be so utterly literal.

That said, I can only play two chords, I spew mostly untruths, and I sure as hell can’t sing. So, bravo to anyone who gets up on stage and takes the risk. I salute you!

7:30 PM – 8:30 PM – Rosemary Beach Town Hall

Again, another grouping of two earnest introspective songwriters and an oddball (Womack). By this point, the limitations of the venue were becoming evident. As it was not a bar/restaurant—more of a church (see below stock photo)—the only choices for lubricants were beer and wine. Needless to say, we’re mostly a liquor crowd. The music (and seats) were making the crew a tad stiff. We made due with the libations on-hand as we endured another hour of songs about children, ex’s, and long lost best friends.

9:00 PM – Rosemary Beach Town Hall

It’s not that we didn’t know Jeffery Steele is a writer of mega country radio hits: “What Hurts the Most”, “The Cowboy in Me”, and “Raise ‘Em Up” (among others). It’s not like we didn’t expect a healthy dose of said country radio hits. What we didn’t expect was his ego. I mean, bravo that he is his biggest fan. And the room was stacked with his “close friends” and fans (his wife co-plans/manages the entire festival with Russell Carter). It was all of the winking and pointing at his “close friends” in the audience, plus the banter between songs that gave him the air of a politician running for office rather than a singer songwriter.

I’m not breaking any news here, but he’s obviously quite talented. Not only can he write an uncommonly fantastic country song, he can play the hell out of a guitar. It was just a bracing mood shift from the previous two hours. To be fair, I was just bitching about all of the introspective snoozers we’d endured, and he played exactly zero songs about pets or kids or fireflies. Some of our crew loved him. I thought he was…just…a lot. Luckily for him, no one cares what I think about much of anything.

With that, we wrapped day one. It was not my favorite day one of all time, but we’d heard seven different artists on a single evening, and that’s hard to do anywhere other than the 30A Songwriter’s Festival.

Plus, we looked damn good doing it!

Day #2 – Saturday, January 15th

On a whim, we opted for V.I.P. tickets on our inaugural #30afest trip (2017). This decision was based chiefly on a hunch our patriarch (Ed) had after evaluating the various ticket packages. He managed arenas for five decades and is a wise one indeed.

I cannot underscore how much more spectacular the V.I.P. experience is vs. the “commoner” experience. It’s everything from the priority parking, to the private restrooms, to the reserved seating, to the all-you-can-eat/drink buffet/bar. It’s all of that and so much more.

Did I mention the people watching?

Pro Tip: Life is short, V.I.P. every single time you can.

Famous person sighting #2: so many people have mentioned this to me, that I took a photo for the social medias. Apparently, and much to my dismay, I remind everyone watching Yellowstone of Will Patton’s (now deceased) character Garrett Randle.

12:00 PM – 4:00 PM – Grand Boulevard

As the show kicked off, Ed had alerted me to the possibility of hearing the current worldwide smash “Puppy and a Truck”. And thankfully, Jenny Lewis did not disappoint. While we were too busy glugging copious amounts of bloodys and mimosas to film it, I can promise you that it’s an earworm for the ages. Like DO NOT listen to this unless you want it bouncing around in your gray matter for at least half the day.

For Dawes, we’d managed to migrate out from under the friendly confines of our translucent tent. We did leave Pam there to guard the six top we’d managed commandeer, and she was cool with that. According to our crew meteorologist Brian, there was a 100% chance of rain for Brothers of a Feather (a.k.a. The Black Crowes), and we wanted a sweet place to camp during their set.

Dawes was/were much better than I expected. They’d picked up the pace considerably from their catalog I’d pre-listened, which admittedly was exactly one album: North Hills. It helped that they seemed to be genuinely enjoying the gig. Plus, those 30A tumblers that Brian & Allison scored after enduring a sales pitch for…I can’t remember…added to the festive atmosphere. We were all well buzzed, so we were pretty much enjoying everything at that point. Here’s proof…

By the time Brothers of a Feather (a.k.a. the Black Crowes) took the stage, the rain was steady. As predicted, the majority of V.I.P.ers had congregated beneath the friendlier skies of the massive transparent tent. Our little table was quite valuable real estate.

And while most of us took in the duo’s acoustic set from our comfy table, a couple of the braver ones decided to get a closer listen.

Despite the soggy conditions, day one of the V.I.P. experience was everything we could’ve hoped for and beyond. But we had little time to waste if we wanted to catch the Saturday night lineup at Red Fish Taco from somewhere other than standing room only.

6:00 PM – 10:30 PM – Red Fish Taco

A few things about this evening. First, unlike Rosemary Beach Town Hall, Red Fish Taco is a proper restaurant with a fantastic bar. This solved two of the major problems: dinner & drinks. Next, the place is quite large and features a satisfactory restroom experience. Which reminds me…

Famous person sighting #3: while waiting in line for the restroom between the second and third sets, I was accused of being Dennis Miller of SNL + MNF fame. I’ll take it!

Finally, the music was around the back of the restaurant in a very large tent in which we secured third-row seats. All-in-all, we were much better set up than the previous evening.

The food was indeed excellent.

The frozen margaritas were just what I needed.

The music was good.

The floor of the tent (a parking lot) was quite puddled. It took a few days for my cowboy boots to fully dry. One of our crew snapped a cool image of the wet.

The highlight was Kathleen Edwards (with ex-husband). They play a number of different guitars and such, both acoustic and electric, and they harmonize wonderfully. She is one of the artists I’d not heard prior to the notion of this years festival, but was rather excited about after doing a little pre-listening. She was fantastic and the stand-out performer of the evening. I highly recommend her new album Total Freedom.

The three that lifted the lid on our evening served up mainly standard singer songwriter fare. Olivia DaPonte was the star of the group. While her tunes were not knocking me out, her vocal stylings were exquisite. Her bio mentions that she moved to Nashville to “immerse herself in the songwriting scene”. This theme appeared over and over again throughout the festival. Of the two million who inhabit the greater Nashville metropolitan area, 500,000 must be aspiring “immersed” musicians.

Todd Snider was…well…Todd Snider. You pretty much know what you are getting with him. He’s easily the biggest name of that Steve Poltz, Charlie Mars, Tommy Womack “comedy jokes folk” camp. His main skill is transforming sardonic humor into song—singing and playing are secondary. He did have some quite touching songs, however. Of our crew, I enjoyed him the most.

Day #3 – Sunday, January 16th

And then there was this odd thing that happened with the main stage lineup. Since it was announced (and throughout the event), the lineup banner looked like this…

These banners give no indication of who is playing on which days. I guess that is a ploy to build anticipation and excitement. A day or two before the event, the actual schedule comes out. The curious thing that occurred when the final schedule hit was that Rickie Lee Jones was scrubbed from the main stage. Instead, she had a book signing scheduled for Sunday.

We assumed this meant that there would only be two Grand Boulevard acts on Sunday: Mavis Staples and Emmylou Harris. And since Mavis was not scheduled until 1:15 PM, we decided to catch Leigh Nash (from Sixpence None the Richer fame) prior to embarking on V.I.P. day #2.

11:00 AM – Raw & Juicy

We (incorrectly) assumed that Leigh Nash was the only show at Raw & Juicy. We arrived to a jam packed tent at the tail end of Olivia DaPonte’s morning set. Thankfully, enough folks cleared out after the first set to land the five of us in seats (Ed had declined in lieu of the Eagles playoff debacle unfolding back at the condo). We were split up, and my wife and I took the two open seats in the front row. If we’ve learned one thing about sitting front row at these shows it’s this—don’t be shy, do it!

Pro Tip: Sit in the front row every time you can.

As the show was gearing up, the mystery of the main stage was solved when the 30A Songwriter’s Festival Instagram account posted this update…

…needless to say, we missed Charles’ set.

Leigh Nash was funny, honest, and wholly wonderful. She sang the old tunes that everyone knew, and she sang plenty of new songs that made me an instant fan. Her song “God Gave Me Horses” is a tear-jerker/heart-stopper. Do yourself a big-time favor and check out her latest EP The Tide, Vol. 1, please.

Her original collaborator in Sixpence, Matt Slocum, accompanied her on guitar along with a very talented percussionist who played everything…

from a gourd
to a flat top box (with and without sticks)
to a tambourine
to a string of bells
to jingle bells
to a wicker thing that made a groovy noise when shaken.

For a right-out-of-the-gate AM performance, we were pretty much blown away and glad we made the trip.

1:15 AM – 4:00 PM – Grand Boulevard

Honestly, no one was jazzed for this lineup. Everyone was jazzed to get a little jazzed on bloodys and mimosas, however. And so we did. As I approached the bartender to deliver my order, he delivered a compliment.

Famous person sighting #4: “What can I get you Hollywood?” was the greeting from the bartender. All I could do was laugh. Later, when I returned for a refill, I asked for another and he responded, “Yes Mr. Costner.” Again, I cannot stress this enough: wear a scarf!

Pro Tip: Wear a scarf!

Well, Mavis Staples blew us straight away. She has range—like from a chainsaw starting up to a choir of angles. She sang a bunch of familiar stuff and a bunch of stuff we’d not heard. We were just happy to sip our drinks and hear everything she had to sing. We were so impressed, we’d planted ourselves in the seats for a closer listen. Her interpretation of The Band classic “The Weight” was nothing short of a religious experience.

Pro tip: Don’t sleep on Mavis Staples!

Due to the rather chilly temp, Emmylou Harris took the stage shortly after Mavis exited. This was our second time seeing Emmylou Harris. She had played with Rodney Crowell in 2020, and their set gave you a feeling of density and sinking, like quicksand.

On this day however, she blew the top off the place with a scorching rendition of my favorite of hers: “Two More Bottles of Wine”. I was immediately drawn out of the tent into the seats. And she never let up. Two of our crew used to dance regularly at the Wild Horse Saloon in Nashville. Along with Emmylou’s tunes they provided some much appreciated visual entertainment.

Well lubricated, we were chauffeured back to the condo for a momentary respite before our final hurrah at the Pearl.

6:00 PM – 10:30 PM – The Pearl Hotel

Well, for the first time in ever, we were denied entry to a show we planned to see. The Pearl was packed, and we were asked to wait in the hallway across the lobby past the restrooms. The hilarious thing about this is that we couldn’t even hear the first act from that distance. Plus, everyone who walked in went straight to the bar to sit down only to be denied by the staff and directed to wait in the hallway across the lobby past the restrooms.

Since we’d missed Tommy Stinson at all of our previous trips to the festival, and since he’s MN rock & roll royalty, and since I’m a lifelong Minnesotan, getting into the Pearl bar was non-negotiable. So, we waited in the hallway across the lobby past the restrooms. But not before five of us ditched my wife to check the situation at the Hub just in case that was a better option.

As she waited by herself in the hallway past the lobby beyond the restrooms, she noticed a tall dude with a guitar walk into the lobby. Since no one besides her was waiting in the line across the hallway past the lobby beyond the restrooms, she tiptoed into the lobby to see who it was.

Part of my logic for checking out the situation at the Hub was that Hayes Carll was doing the 9:00 PM show there. If we weren’t getting into the Pearl bar, he’d be an excellent backup option. Ironically, as the five of us arrived at the Hub to find it was more packed than the Pearl bar (where we’d left my wife), Hayes Carll (the tall dude with the guitar in the lobby of the Pearl) was taking a photo with my wife.

Although we all missed Hayes Carll scoping out his 9 PM show venue, we did manage to get seated in groups of two shortly after our return to the Pearl. But only after waiting in the hallway across the lobby past the restrooms for about 20 more minutes.

My wife and I were seated on the corner of the bar about five feet from the stage. Again, if you can be front row, be front row!

We were seated in time to catch the last three tunes by the Sundogs. Jon Harris, who plays a mean lap steel guitar, was just accompanying the Haraway Brothers, so there was no back and forth; it was refreshing. The “in the round” experience can be neat, but it’s mostly unsatisfying. Especially if you find only one of the acts appealing.

We were all settled in at our spot on the corner of the bar and ready for the next show.

While Heather Maloney delivered straight-ahead singer songwriter melodies, she did harmonize rather well. Leslie Mendelson, was a bit more…exceptional. First, she did a number of songs from the piano. The comparison to the legendary Carole King in her bio was obvious as her performance unfolded. During one of her songs, if I closed my eyes, I could imagine the the tune I was hearing slotted somewhere on side B of Tapestry. Also, a number of her songs were conceptual rather than a blow by blow of a difficult breakup or a devastating loss of a pet or a “day in the life” that ends at a coffee shop. I was so impressed, I bought her LP If You Can’t Say Anything Nice…

At one point, she did a stunning rendition of the Ronnie Spector classic “Be My Baby”. She got the crowd to sing the chorus. It was utterly perfect.

As the changeover to Tommy Stinson was taking place on the stage, he passed me in the lobby as I was walking to the restroom. He stopped, pointed at my shirt, and sang me a verse of the Who classic “Substitute”. I was tickled. It was one of those unforgettable #30afest memories to heap atop the growing pile.

Also before his set, we were able to rearrange ourselves to be one group of six rather than three groups of two.

Tommy Stinson did a straight up rock & roll show. There were a pair of highlights. The first was when he decided to unplug and do the second half of the set from atop the bar.

The second highlight was the ensemble rendition of the Faces classic “Ooh La La”.

I had to buy a little merch afterward. And Tommy had to ham it up—god bless him!

And with that, we were all done. We cruised back to the condo to decompress, debrief, and reminisce. We had a few bourbons and beers. We had more than a few laughs. We played some more music. As the night waned, we just basked in the utter awesomeness that is #30afest.

All tolled, we saw 23 different artists over what essentially amounted to a long weekend. We saw musicians with international hits who’d toured the world. We saw road-hardened veteran singer songwriters with decades of barstool bandolero gigs in the rearview. We saw up-and-coming artists who were just immersing themselves in the singer songwriter culture. To be able to take in so much music in such a short period of time is exhausting in a most satisfying way—it’s a kind of magic.

Toward the end of her set, Heather Maloney, who was a first timer at 30A, told us that a festival of strictly singer songwriters of this magnitude is exceedingly rare. She underscored how lucky we all felt to have been there with her at this wonderous festival on this most majestic stretch of the Florida panhandle.

Monday morning, I snapped a photo of our beloved beach before we piled into the SUV and trekked the six hours back to reality. Much of the drive home I waxed grateful for the four days of unreality. This event always leaves me with an obdurate “fun” hangover that takes about a week to clear.

Until next year…
