Nice. Heard Gringo Honeymoon this morning on my way to work.

Saw him play an awesome show before a couple hundred at the songwriters festival in Key West a couple years ago.

Snow? I need to check out next weeks weather forecast. Eek

Love me some Allman Brothers! Cool


You're safe, w+a. Just an abberation. 50s next week, and dry. Cool

Ha...still sounds like winter to me. Wink

M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming (Love)
Justice - A/V Disco (A bit too much)


Midnight City is easily one of my tracks of the year. I noticed it's on the Victoria Secret Angels commercial.

I'm into the Justice album. Canon is a quality groove for me, once the thirty second intro is over. Newlands reminds me of yesteryear AC/DC or something...and the vocals remind me of something else I can't put my finger on.

Midnight City is very nice. It takes me a few spins to really decide whether I like an album or not. After a few background listens of M83, I was quite sold. Then heard Midnight City on "How to Make it in America" and it got me.

I'll check out those specific Justice tracks. Only have given that album one listen.

Hey, look - another negative condescending post from Mr. Cabernet. What a shock! Jag.

As always I'm glad that one of my biggest followers is still hanging on my every post. As for making a condescending comment, the OP didn't even say what he felt about the piece, just that he was listening to it. And I'm pretty sure I'm allowed to express a negative opinion as all posters here do sometime.

Note that my previous post was a positive comment on a movie. I'm sure you know the post since you are my most dedicated follower.

It's good, but not the genius that everyone makes it out to be. If it had come out before Sgt Pepper, then I think the conversation would be different.

Free stream on spinner.com for those who are interested.


Yeah, I think they were overrating based on everything that surrounded its recording...if it was a new artist, no way would it get 10/10.

Long album though...not sure I can give full marks to many double albums...takes a lot. Beatles' White is obvious, and at the time, I thought Chilis' Stadium Arcadium was a good effort.

Weird, I know, but I started the morning with one of Dieskau's "Wintereisse" recordings, then settled back with Dylan's "Time Out of Mind."


I have a Dieskau "Winterreise" but have just ordered the one in the hyperion series sung by Matthias Goerne.


That Matthias Goerne (w/Graham Johnson) recording is very good. I'm sure you'll enjoy it! I have 4 different Dieskau recordings, some of which I like better than others. There is an older Peter Pears recording, from 1965 and reissued in 2000, this is very nice.

I'm looking forward to it. Do you have the whole hyperion set? I have 3 with 4 more on order.

No, I don't. Look forward to your thoughts on it.

How is this?

Nevermind, for some reason I was thinking this is their new, Vic Chestnutt tribute album. It is, in fact, "Demons". Going to give it a spin now.


I have two Cowboy Junkie records, this and _Black Eyed Man_ and I like them both a lot.

Might go to the show next Saturday. I already have plans though...really like it. Top five albums of the year, I think.

He (they?) is playing here tonight but there's no way I can make it. Have a friend going. If you're curious, I'll be happy to relay his thoughts.

You're in Altanta? Drunken Unicorn sounds interesting. Yeah, let me know if it's no bother...I'm booked but this is a solid plan B.

Nice. Have you heard Nigel Kennedy's version? An unusual take on the original.


I do not think I have. Confused

I'm a fan of Nigel, ( Bach) and will check this out.

Overrated? I think he's appropriately rated as a capable crooner of covers (mostly), filling the next Harry C. Jr void, no? Don't think anyone reckons he's a great artist despite his massive popularity do they?

Thank you Adam. My one question is among the vast ocean of lounge singers who have never been able to come up with their own material.... How in the heck did this guy make it? His voice certainly is nothing to get excited about. Not quite sure how he became so popular bastardizing the classics of long-dead greats.

Disagree! He has excellent tone and an exceptional voice. Personally, being a fan of the long dead greats, I am glad he keeps this music "alive". "Bastardizing", not even close!

As a fan of the long dead greats, I will simply choose to continue to listen to the long dead greats.

I enjoy and prefer them as well, but not on subject of your critique.

I'm on the fence. He definitely has a good voice, unless you're an incredible singer? I see your point but he does serve a purpose of bringing this music to popularity and kids can see it live...plus, he paid his dues...lived broke for a fair while trying to make it...had his girlfriend supporting the two of them I think...and now he has a nice Argie missus, too!

Cool

Reginald Dwight Wink ... a few songs from Honky Chateau and Madman Across the Water, up next, Allman Brothers. Woke up to Roger McGuinn (backed by Petty).

On a related note, I NEVER watch Leno. But last night I saw the last few minutes for some unexplained reason. He had on Tom Morello (featuring Ben Harper). Perhaps the single most impressive new song I've heard in a decade, maybe more. The real thing.
