Lucinda Williams - Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone

What do you think?


I like it. Clearly I made a mistake thinking her best music was behind her after World Without Tears.

Yeah, it has consistently strong writing, especially considering it's a double album. And wonderful arrangements and performances. Hard to miss with Bill Frisell on guitar.

The The: Uncertain Smile. Maybe the best rock piano solo ever!


Confused What's the connection between Merle Haggard and the song Uncertain Smile?


I'm surprised you didn't know that Merle was the guy humming in the background during the vocals! Roll Eyes

Not the only one, but a minority for sure. Haven't heard the new Parquet Courts yet, but do like Sunbathing Animal.


Oh well.

FWIW the new Parquet Courts is fabulous. I might even upgrade my A rating. I'm a big fan of theirs too and find this to arguably be the best record yet.

For those that like older music, I think this album reaks of the velvet underground. Arguably talking heads too. Very creative and certainly worth a listen.

Am i the only one here listening to new music?



I don't listen to a lot of new pop music. Only a little new jazz, but there's some pretty great jazz stuff going on.

Right now, I'm listening to The Bad Plus Joshua Redman - they were at the Old Town School last night. It was awesome. Live music is better.

Dave Edmunds - DE 7th


Good album, definitely a fan of DE

In our kitchen in 1969 a song comes on our not bad small radio, and it's blowing my mind. And it keeps going and going and going. And finally it ends...who is it, who is it? "That was the 'Sabre Dance' by Love Sculpture." Always liked him since.

I have quite a few of his albums. Like his cover of older tunes. Also like his Rockpile bandmate Nick Lowe.

There are only a couple of Edmunds/Lowe/Rockpile albums I don't have. Most of them are excellent. Hell I even have a couple of Carlene Carter's albums from her days as Mrs. Nick Lowe.

I really regret that I never saw any of them live. Frown

Happy to have seen Rockpile in 1980 at the Heat Wave festival outside Toronto. Love both Edmunds and Lowe. Also saw Lowe with Little Village on their one and only tour (Hiatt, Lowe, Cooder and Keltner).

Lowe's more recent solo albums are wonderful - especially The Convincer.

Van Morrison - It's Too Late To Stop Now

Great live album, captures Van Morrison at his best


I didn't know this was released. I thought it was in June.

That's Vol 2, 3 and 4. The original album was released in 1974. It will be remastered and rereleased in June (now called Vol 1) to coincide with the additional releases.

That's the one I regret not having seen. Mosport, right?

I forgot about Little Village. Also like that album. Did they play in Toronto?

Yes, Mosport. Backstage passes. It's a long story involving delinquent credit payments by the festival promoter. I'll tell you about it the next time you make it to T.O.

Also yes, Little Village played Massey Hall. Second row floors. sunshades

Ah, Chopin! Every time I hear or read his name, I think back an evening in college when we made up lyrics to his Military Polonaise. I can still sing it!


Next off-line! Big Grin


I can still play it. I'll be glad to provide accompaniment!

Was it on _Heavy Metal_? Looked it up on the web and it was!


Rock on my 80's brethren!


I was a big BoC fan back in the day. And I still like the songs, but since I bought a nice stereo, they are kind of hard to listen to.

Totally agree on this venue. Was too young to see the Dead there, but was lucky to see Phish and Widespread there on a couple of different occasions.

I was also lucky to see some shows at Red Rocks and the Gorge, two other venues that make the atmosphere at east coast sheds like Darien Lake seem dreary at best.

Was fortunate to see the Dead at the Greek 12 times between 85 and 88. Was at Red Rocks in 84. What an incredible venue. Never been to the Gorge.

As in Shawn and Steve?

As for me,

Steel Pulse - Earth Crisis

Shawn and Steve it is. New release last week. Produced by Buddy Miller. It has a wonderful, raw rambunctiousness to it. Some odd choices of tunes to cover, though. Tobacco Road, Ruby Tuesday, You Were On My Mind, Baby's In Black...

I don't know Steel Pulse, but I'll give them a listen today.
