Did the pickers have to wear Gaga-style apparel when they performed, or is that just a rumor I started?
Your problem is, you think you have enough time.
I'm hoping Gibson comes out with a Ga Ga F5 artist model soon.....maybe with a case made out of meat.......
But no comments yet, AWWW!!! So curious to see what little monsters have to say about mandolins- if they know what one is. Lady Gaga and mandolins do share Italian ancestry. BTW & FWIW, natch.
And I didn't post a comment cause I didn't want to be rude.........Never stopped me before.........
This album is long overdue, considering that LG did such an amazing version of "Blue Moon of Kentucky" on her debut album.
still trying to turn dreams into memories
Can anyone tell me where to find the tab to Steffy's solo on "I Like it Rough"?
I'm really thrilled to see this come out and can't wait to hear it, especially the Stiernberg track. Lady Gaga has always been an inspiration to my playing and watching her perform has actually helped my mandolin playing technique. Especially the hammer-ons and pull-offs.
We few, we happy few.
And of course you held back a little surprise for us all by omitting one song from the playlist. Her 46-minute vocal rendition of Raw Hide is positively Beethovenesque! A must-listen. (And how did they get Bernstein to conduct that? The only answer I can come up with is that it somehow involves the "consultant" listed in the fine print: "Dr. Emmett Brown of Hill Valley, CA")
This album is well worth the $1,724.95 asking price. There'll be a few on eBay next week for at least 3 large.

I'm just upset that my comment on gagachatter.com apparently didn't make it past the moderators. Where the heck is the professional courtesy here?
After reading this i had a hard time keeping my P P P P P P poker face

On that note, has the entire Cafe ever come together for something like that? Perhaps members could record themselves playing a part and they were all mixed together? If it hasn’t been done, that could be a cool idea.
A few years ago we ran a program where we asked members to submit their own interpretations of Clay Aiken's songs. It sold reasonably well. Nobody got rich but Jim Garber did manage to get himself a new car.
I could've been on the album. Didn't want to. I don't think it's that great. Don't know what all the fuss is about.
Bobby Osborne wasn't on this record, but I hear he's signed Jimmy Jam to produce his next one, and they're bringing in Gaga as a guest vocalist on Bobby's new song "Tuned This Way." I just hope no one tells Bobby about the new lyrics Gaga wrote for "Rocky Top."
OK, this has to be a joke? Right? When do we get to find out?
Thanks for your support?
I have not been able to find this recording on an I Tune search using the recording title. Can you please tell me what search you used to find it. Thanks.
I'm afraid it's available for other people only. Sorry.
Golly, it's April 2nd already.
