Loved the first couple of albums. Great songs like Into You Like a Train and Imitation of Christ. They went downhill after that imho.

I agree that they sounded like an entirely different group by the time Mirror Moves came out. They went from 6 in the original group, down to 3 with overdubs and "helpers", lost the sax, and lost the edginess.

The first three albums were definitely my favorites. Even so, I still enjoy the last 2 albums for what they are.
Paganini's Caprices. I have to remind myself the hissing noise I hear when i listen to this is the sound made by my brain cells popping... As an intermediate violinist, I cannot think of how passages of this are techniclly possible to play (like in the 1st one, for instance). A more succinct dispay of musical virtuosity i may never know. If anyone knows of any other recording, of any instrument, in the league of this, let me know and i'll buy it. This recording by Perlman.

I'm assuming you'll be firing up Rattle & Hum on St. Patty's day? It's kind of a tradition now! Cool

Gig and I decided that it would be appropriate to only bring Irish wine:

Funny. I have a recording conducted by Carlos Kleiber and it has this funny footnote:

Warning: In the beginning of the second CD the first ten bars of Act III have been omitted since they were completely drowned out by the noise of an argument which had broken out among the audience.

I wondered whether you had a recording where a whole act was wiped out.

I do. My daughter put it on my iPod without the first act.

It does, but like a complete set of mozart piano concertos, its hard to find time to listen to the whole thing, let alone remeber your favorite pieces without 'tasting notes.' But your right, after listening to the 'sunrise,' and being a lover of chamber music, I should have some more of his quartets and trios.

Paco is amazing...its that throat-clearing, chain-smoking, banshee howl that ruins flamenco for me. After living in the south of Spain for a couple of years, i am nostalgic for Sevilliana, with Feria season getting underway. Alas, we have forsaken our Feria trip this year....Frown
Damn, I was at that concert. It was the first date with my wife. Still love the dead & still love that it was our first date.

Sufjan Stevens - Illinoise
B.R.M.C. – Howl
The Decemberists – Your Majesty

Next up is Some Fleet Foxes I think.

I love Andrew Bird (I saw him and the Decemberists at the Hollywood Bowl about five years ago now and it’s still one of my favourite concerts) and like what I’ve heard of Bon Iver. Thanks for the other recco’s though!

That is epic. You may still be able to purchase..it is a dick's pick's (dead.net. If sold out, its possible to find a dead download site, but it will most likely be from the tapers section, adn thus low quality.
Bill Evans - Live At Art d'Lugoff's Top of the Gate

Bought this on clear blue 10" vinyl today, exclusive to Record Store Day. Wonderful collection of music.

Steve Reich - Music For 18 Musicians

Paid $0.99 4 or 5 years ago for this original press in mint condition. Amazing music.
I'm visiting Pandora again today - I plugged in Thelonius Monk and it's picking some tracks, but only 1 of them so far has been TM. Not that impressed with Pandora, but I don't pay to play so maybe I should lower my expectations....

Not really, it's all good. Except for Butterfly, Puccini's music generally outweighs his stories.
Bach's cello suite by yo yo ma...this last week in the car for the commute, with my youngest. Since i have transcriptions for the prelude of # 1 for both violin and viola to learn, i was interested in what it looked like on the 'cello, so i pulled it up on youtube. When i did, my boy immediately bee-lined for the lap top, amazed, and so was i to see the power of what he had been listening to.

The only choice my lil' ball of clay will have is which instrument...I'm going to grab my Taylor and strum a few for him for more inspiration.

I love this record. I seldom listen to classical music in the car - you must have a quiet car....

Have you heard any other performances of this?
