Sometimes these snippets are obtrusive but other's just make the song. For instance I always dug the insertion of Crosby quip "I will now proceed to entangle the entire area" seguing into 'Almost Cut My Hair' to be pretty perfect.

I love when Carl Palmer flubs the intro to ELP's "The Sheriff" and you hear him say "aw, sheet!" before nailing it.

At the end of THE WHO's 'Happy Jack', you can hear Townsend yelling "I saw ya!" at Keith Moon pulling some antics. Gives me a laugh

The intro to LED ZEPPLIN's 'Black Country Woman' has a recording being tainted by the sounds of an airplane flying over. When the engineer asks the band to wait, Plant responds "Naw, leave it there"

JOHNNY WINTER kicks off a raw 'Still Alive & Well' with the urge of "C'mon let's do this fkr"

Leon Russell asks Marc Benno & Rita Coolidge which intro they like better. Unable to agree, they flip a coin.

"Intro to Rita/Straight Brother"

"It's just the normal noises in here!" from "Even the Losers", Petty & the Heartbreakers

Does anyone know who the girl was that said it?

That line has been the sound-bite to so many situations in life.

On Dead Skunk In The Middle Of The Road, At the instrumental break Loudon Wainwright instead of saying something like let' s go or whatever he says, "Now stink". LOL.

Bob Dylan's 115th Dream (from "Bringing it All Back Home") Some hilarious chatter at the beginning as Bob Dylan blows his cue.

Get Back (from Beatles "Let It Be") Sweet Loretta Fat thought she was a cleaner but she was a frying pan....

Just heard this on my way to work this morning - Queens of the Stone Age - the beginning of "Songs for the Deaf":

(Radio ad:) K-L-O-N Los Angeles KLONE Radio, We play the songs that sound more like everyone else than anyone else. Klone, klone.
DJ: (lead guitar part from Song for the Deaf plays in the background on a keyboard) Hey, all right, it's Kip Kasper, KLONE Radio, LA's infinite repeat. How we feelin out there? How's your drive-time commute? I need a saga. What's the saga? (song starts) It's Songs for the Deaf. You can't even hear it!

Re: Does anyone know who the girl was that said it?

I think I read in an interview with Tom Petty, that it was a receptionest answering the phone, at the studio that Tom and the band were recording at. He just happened to get it on tape.

On The Byrds' "Drug Store Truck Driving Man" during the fade out one of them says "This one's for you, Ralph", a statement directed to DJ Ralph Emery who had dissed them on air.

Just before playing The Mule on Made In Japan, Ian Gillan says, "Yeah, can we have everything louder than everything else? Right."
I've always loved that.

Hendrix, studio version of "Red House", something like...
"You mean we're really cooking now..." just as the track starts.
First heard on Smash Hits. Still a fave from him.

Bought "Blues" in the mid '90s. Has maybe the take before 'the one' on this.

Spoken Lines on Record....

Doesn't that include virtually every Rap Record ever made??

Posted on Mar 8, 2013 8:10:35 PM PST
The Graham Edge poems/spoken word pieces that usually began and/or closed the classic Moody Blues albums were cool IMO. I especially like the opening to "On The Threshold Of A Dream".

Exile says:
On the Stones' Satanic Majesties, among the banter in the right channel of Mick having a conversation with a woman right at the end of "On With the Show":

Woman: I hope you ..aahh..didn't record any of this......
Mick: No, no I didnt, I didn't record any of it.

Apparently he did.
