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.

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.

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

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.

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?

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.

He left Megadeth. I lost interest in them a while ago but I heard their last cd had Chris Poland on guitar and it was supposed to be good.


i don't think he "left". i think mustaine didn't "invite" him back. this disc isn't bad, but it certainly isn't anything close to megadeth. 12 songs and comes in barely over 36 minutes. and they cover an edie brickell song... Eek

Easy to track what I listen to... I just look at my iTunes receipts or sort my purchased music by date added. I'm pretty eclectic and, lately, nostalgic. Believe it or not:

Rap
Kanye West
Fugees
Jay-Z

Lotsa Sinatra (Luck be a Lady - Luvit)

Happy Mondays

after listening to this in it's entirity 3 x's, it's official. i do not like this pairing.
A really cool Queen cover is Geoff Tate of Queensryche doing Need Somebody to Love.

This guy has the best range BY FAR in rock and does it as good or (I hate to say it) even better than Mercury. Truly a great cover. His version of Rush's Closer to the Heart isn't bad either.
Steve8,

As a Montrealer, I thought you might think it was pretty damn cool that Arcade Fire was playing last night at the ACC just as U2 hit the stage. I swear to god I could hear Bono singing along with "Wake Up" for a bit before jumping into Vertigo. Quite a neat thing to see, IMO.

What an amazing recording that is. I was just listening to Coletrane's ballads and his duet record with Johnny Hartman on vocals. He was as good at what he did as anyone ever at what they did, regardless of what it was.

Tonight I am listening to Michael Brecker's first solo record called Michael Brecker. Pat Metheny has some amazing guitar work on this record.

Cheers.

The Johnny Hartman set is a lovely romantic soporific but A Love Supreme raises the bar exponentially with the modal concept. Giant Steps is in the middle ground and tickles the jazz fancy relentlessly. Ascension is another matter.

For more thrills, groove on LIVE AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD.

Yes. If you didn't see them live, in the day, I feel for you.
"Yes. If you didn't see them live, in the day, I feel for you."

"I saw the Damned on the Machine Gun Etiquette tour - madness."

They were before my time, during that tour I was about 3. I became aware of them in the last few years though, great punk band.
