Renny's Riot
Wednesday August 2nd, 2023 with Wretched Renny
MOVE TOO FAST; GROOVE TO LAST. Learning to slow down, a feature on the The Vanrays' new album, "Put It Out", organ powered madness and the longest track ever played on the Riot (and it's jazz!).

Sorry Rioteers. You've got to start without me. Physiotherapy is a harsh & demanding mistress. Please leave comments, I'll respond as soon as I'm able. Thanks. Oh yeah....And thanks for tuning in as well.

Howdy. I'm back. I'm sweaty, I'm out of breath and I've got to go for occupational therapy in half and hour. Any listeners?

2:04 PM, August 2nd, 2023
I just got in myself! Enjoying the Riot as always.

Late to the party at 2:36 p.m. Hope all is going well for you Renny. I'm jumping in at the John Zorn track, some great playing from Albert Collins.

2:47 PM, August 2nd, 2023
I wonder now could this John Zorn track be the longest track ever played on the Riot? Wow the transition into the Waits tune is great. Ditto into the Billy Preston track.

2:55 PM, August 2nd, 2023
I would have associated "The Look of Love" to be more of a Dusty Springfield tune. I don't remember the Tom Jones version, not that I'm trying very hard to do so! Great show Renny, thanks.
