I am getting lots of listening in:

Emmylou Harris and Elvis Costello - Live at Ryman. This is an unreleased bootleg. Very good. Dave Rawlings and Gilian Welch sit in for a few songs.

Port St. Willow - Not my favorite

Jay Fararr and Yim Yames - Net Multitudes. Eh.

Sean Hayes - Alabama Chicken. Like.

Neil Young - Americana. Some are bad; some are good.

Willy Tea Taylor. Some good some bad.

More to come.

Sat at The Irish Harp in NOTL Thursday night and listened to a guy play this genre for over three hours - you woulda loved it...
The Clash--London Calling...

...but not on my ipod. I heard it on an NBC commercial for the London Summer Olympics. Confused
Now, I don't claim to be a huge Clash fan, or even well versed; they came a little after my golden age of music. But it seems to me that using one of their iconic songs for commercialization would be the antipathy of what they seemed to believe in.
They're also reputed to have shunned profit motivations in the music industry. I wonder how much NBC paid for the rights? Just weird.

I'm in a meeting of the uncouth, ill-mannered, and inconsiderate, so that would be perfect.

Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band - Ice Cream for Crow

I had to google this one. The video (found it on youtube) was originally rejected by MTV USA as "too weird" upon release, now in the Permanent Film and Video Collection of the Museum of Modern Art, NYC. Figures...

I've known you for a while now steve8 but you, my friend, have a VERY eclectic taste in music!
Love Beefheart! RIP.

I just pulled a "best of" from Root Boy Slim and the Sex Change Band. Dare to be fat!!! Fat's where it's at...... Cool

fwiw, Root Boy and the SCB performed one of the best live shows I've ever seen. Although, it could have been the Tanqueray.... Ack

A little pre-offline warm up music? I'm assuming there will be strolling violins once we arrive tonight. Big Grin


Maybe I'll set my Stratocaster on fire a la Jimi Hendrix!

Now THAT'S an offline! Cool
disc #5 of the Auchtung Baby 20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.
Highlights:
Lady With The Spinning Head
Salomé
Satellite Of Love
Heaven & Hell
Oh Berlin
Paint It Black
Fortunate Son
Alex Descends Into Hell For A Bottle Of Milk/Korova 1

The covers are a delight. The whole collection shows the range and variety of sounds these guys were playing with 20 years ago. Some of which they expanded into subsequent alblums and is stuff they bring out during tours to keep the sets fresh and interesting.

Best tune.


Definitely - unbelieveable live in my opinion - true for many of their songs though ie. Wake Up and Power Out


Everything on the Suburbs, Intervention, etc....saw them at Reading Fest. Toppermost!

Vinyl? I borrowed (stole?) this vinyl from my parents and have worn it out. Especially when I lived in Macon. Can't tell you how many Saturday fall afternoons that record saw. Elizabeth Reed, over and over.

Yep, I buy exclusively buy vinyl. This is in near mint condition and I'm pretty sure I found it in the $1 bin.

French suites...noted. I have a weakness for harp so will look for it on that.


I have the art of fugue for the harpsichord and I never really warmed to that work. I imagined it was a piece that you could appreciate by reading, but maybe not by listening to, but then I got a recording of it performed by string quartet and now I like it quite a lot.

Not sure I ever recall that before.


Really? This Blue Rodeo?


That is the group, but do not recall that song.

I'm guessing 5-6 straight songs.


What restaurant?


Menas... why so curious?
Roxy Music - Siren

W+A, I'm curious that they played a Tex-Mex restaurant in Carrollton, TX. Didn't realize they were known that far south. Granted, playing a restaurant isn't exactly the pinnacle of a career. I did like the music they made in the early-mid 90's.

Excellent, and my second favorite of Dylan.


...and your favourite is? Hwy 61? Blood on the Tracks?

BoB is my favourite Dylan album.


I had my parents dylan albums to tap into when a youth...blood on the tracks for me and still so poignant.

From the concertos above, I recommend the largo from 1056 if you haven't heard it. Even on a suspect mix it is brilliant.

Highway 61 (my favorite and guess at W+As).

Overall, I agree that BoB is #2, but Another Side is also just so wonderful.

Bringing It All Back Home and John Wesley Harding (which may be Dylan's only album that actually works better as an album than as a collection of individual songs) ain't no slouches, either.

Thanks Former15, I never saw Steve's post.

Indeed Highway 61, but others excellent as well for sure.
Concert for George

One of the best tribute concerts I've ever seen. It's always one of the DVDs that get pulled out at the end of a great evening when everyone wants to relax and watch/listen to something. I may actually like the version of "Something" McCartney and Clapton do better than the original.

I would rather stick ice picks in my ears, or listen to the political debate....but to each their own.

This weekend for me:
Catherine Wheel - Chrome

So I am assuming you have ACTUALLY listened to the album?

I did when it came out. I don't think he holds a candle to Tribe or even Young MC, but as said, to each, theirs...
