For any jazz fans out there, this disc is a must.


It's good to see another jazz fan on the board. "The three M's" - Miles, Mingus and Monk. Haven't explored Mingus -- yet.



Brighthue, Start with "Mingus Ah Um" and the from there Blues & Roots, The Clown or "Passion of a man box set. Then I would get the Mingus Big Band discs and see them live if you get the chance.
Don't forget the 4th M Hank Mobley Mobley's Blues is my theme song

I was a huge Rancid fan back when Let's Go and And Out Come the Wolves were released.

The first Transplants CD is better than Haunted Cities in my opinion. But I just picked up Haunted Cities so I'm still getting a feel for it and like you it is growing on me. I've been listening to all of Tim Armstrong's bands for awhile, one of my favorite musicians for sure.

Walt, Good to see another Hank Mobley fan out there. You made me search through all my discs including the Mosaic Box set and I don't have Mobley's Blues. What disc is that on? I tend to favor Tenor Sax players and Mobley's high up there as one of my favorite, after Rollins and Coltrane.

Jeff[/QUOTE]I think my dog ate that cd and I havn't been able to find it again, !@#$%.I finnally broke down and got the Madeleine Peyroux Careless Love cd with j'ai duex amours on it. She really doe's a great Billie Holiday impersanation and the accompaning intsruments sound terrific.

Dio - Holy Diver


I haven't heard Holy Diver since my band played it almost 20 years ago. I can still remember the bass line. Cool

I still think the 2 Sabbath albums he sang on were some of their best work. Still love Children of the Sea. "In the misty morning....at the edge of time..." Classic. Who still writes cheezy lines like that these days?
Air "How does it make you feel"

p.s. I ended up partying with Dio once back in the mid 90's. Short and puny, but what vocal cords. Too bad all his music sounds the same - I told him just that, so he knows. I think Ritchie Blackmore exploited Dio's talent best. My band played lots of Sabbath covers too, but no Dio material, Ozzy and Gillan only.
Grun,

I don't think we will ever see another character like Dio in his heyday..... A 5 foot tall Italian guy, singing heavy metal in skin tight spandex, with a huge perm and the classic unbelievably hairy chest. He was a thing of beauty. Big Grin Sorry... IS a thing of beauty. I'm sure he's working in a Walmart somewhere. Wink

Tbird,

I stand corrected. Big Grin

good job grun. he dramatically altered his sound after you told him that. Razz Big Grin

the million dollar question is if you ever covered any sabbath WITH gillan on vocals? "disturbing the priest" baby! Cool

baird, a walmart? i don't think so. "still touring"! he got craig goldy back on guitars and rudy sarzo on bass.... Smile

Rudy Sarzo.

Beautiful. Does he still do the hand over the top of the neck technique on bass? I always thought that was so flaming. Wasn't Billy Sheehan available? Big Grin

I should talk though, I already saw Priest and Queensryche this summer. Cool

He should be now. I saw him backing up Steve Vai in April on what was reportedly the final show of his tour. That show was quite a wankfest, in the most positive sense of the word.
Cool

Big Grin Ha-ha!! I was the frontman, dude! I needed oxygen pillow after covering Gillan's "trashed" and "hot line"


i am now in awe of you, grun! Smile those are two m-f'ers to pull off. my hats off.

now get to work on "disturbing the priest"!! Eek Smile
I have tried to stay away from this thread. I can not stand it any longer. So, now to show my age (at least I'm not bald, yet!)...

Little Feat, 'I've Been Down...', on http://www.radiomargaritaville.com (and now Sirius, also).

While I am a 'Parrot Head,' I couldn't listen to this all day, every day. But, I have to play something mellow for the customers in my store. The only problem is when they play songs like, 'Why Don't We Get Drunk and Screw.' Eek

To wank, means to masturbate, usually a male, hence the term, wanker.

A wankfest (although not in my dictionary), is what I assume to be a festival where wankers wank.

How could this not be a positive experience?

Came across this one. With simple but cool visuals, this vid is all about faces. Both the girl and the guy can be models. Nice tune too. The girl is mui sexy.


Where do you find this stuff?!?! Confused Eek

As an Eastern-European, I can say that they are never, ever, going to be cool. Ever.

Nice link, grun. LOL

That's bloody terrible. How can that guy get a recording contract?

Although the worst singer EVER was that guy that sang "Up The Country". Canned Heat? I forget the name of the band. He is head and shoulders over any competition. Lemmy from Motorhead sings like an angel compared to that guy.

You're talking about the late Bob "the Bear" Hite. Yes, his voice was so ill-suited for singing the blues, it always made me wonder if Canned Heat was from some foreign country that had no connection to the blues. Liechtenstein, maybe.
Alan "Blind Owl" Wilson sang Going Up The Country, not Bob "the Bear" Hite. They're both gone now, but Bob outlasted Al. I just listened to Goin' Up The Country for the first time in several years last week, and I was so impressed as to what a great performance it was on so many levels.

Sorry to disagree, but that song is one of the better things that ever came out of that period, IMNSHO.

Just my 2 oz.,
