Wow. Fell asleep before this part, because I'm old, and that's also the reason I remember Free To Be. Which I haven't thought about in 40+yrs.

That was my 'go-to' phrase when I was a kid and my mom would call me out on a faux pas or infraction of some sort...."free to be, you and me, mom".

 

References like this is one the reasons it's so fun watching the Tweedy Show.

One small tweak to the Episode 168 notes: Jeff also sang backing vocals on The Air That I Breathe. He's off camera, but you can distinctly hear three voices on the choruses.

Nice catch! Thank you! I am going to fix that now.

Haha. At the risk of becoming a nag, Jeff also sang a harmony part on Who Loves The Sun last night (episode 169). :)

The Tweedy Show Thursday April 22 Episode 170


I'm Kind Of In Love With You
-- Jeff talks about his grandmother's farts and the various nicknames for her.
 

 

Two quick thoughts: Of all the new songs played on the Tweedy Show, "I'm Kind of Love With You" is the one that keeps rattling in my brain. For months now, I find myself humming it All. The. Time. Can't wait to hear an official recording (here's to hoping for a full band version).

Also, the discussion of grandma farts was hilarious because my grandmother did the precise same act of pseudo-surprise that Jeff described. So did my great-grandmother... who also seemed to cherish those moments when the great-grandchildren would sneak a whoopee cushion under her seat. Her response was always a red-faced "Oh, excuse me!"

One nitpicky note: although Jim O'Rourke's version of "Women Of The World" was the first time I heard the song, it was originally by Ivor Cutler.

Thank you for the correction! I've only heard the O'Rourke version myself. U2 actually used Jim's version on one of their most recent tours for a video in between sets.

The nit-pickiest of points, but I thought Susie said that Glenn taught her how to reheat pizza in "a dry skillet".

 

This was a terrific show tonight! Gorgeous singing throughout and I got my namesake song. :wub Jeff sang it so pretty.

You’re probably right. I was looking up pictures of a dry skillet and I think someone mentioned air skillets in the comments and my wires got crossed. 
 

Yes! Beautiful version! I hope that some of those early versions of AGIB songs wind up on an anniversary set.
