Nope. Just listen to the song every Thanksgiving. Worthwhile tradition. Although last year on the SNL before Thanksgiving there was a sketch about how there are no Thanksgiving songs. I got so mad. 😜

Big Thief - Two Hands

The song Not is the best one I've heard this year. When I saw them a couple of years ago it seemed to me Adrianne Lenker was lacking confidence in her vocals. Not anymore.

The Rolling Stones - Tattoo You

This album had pretty much been consigned to the dark corner of my collection a long time ago after having bought it upon release. I read something about it recently which made me pull it out for a spin. I certainly remembered the first side which is the one I listened to most way back when, but Side B has been a revelation. I recall it being inconvenient to listen to Waiting on a Friend but there are some excellent songs on it. I realize all of them were culled from sessions in the 70's but Jagger shines on these ballads.

Dvorak Cello Concertos by Fournier and some string serenades.

Yuja Wang, Berlin Recital and Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto 3 and her Ravel album too.

Manilla Road - Crystal Logic

Live Cream Volume II. I've always found this a problematic album. I can never decide if the audio is awful or amazing. Tom Dowd did an amazing job recording a power group with the technology of the day. It's obviously was a money grab album which didn't even come out until 4 years after the performance (and about 4 years after they broke up.)

However I listened to it a few nights ago and it reaffirmed the following:

No greater rock drummer than Ginger Baker (who died this year.)

No greater rock bass player than Jack Bruce.

And Clapton is Clapton.

Also the live version of Deserted Cities of the Heart is quite incredible. The drum and guitar duet that Clapton and Baker do on Steppin' Out reminds me of the the amazing live interplay of John Coltrane and Elvin Jones. FWIW the song is mislabeled, and misattributed, on the original pressing as Hideaway by King and Sonny Thompson. I have that LP and because I didn't listen to it much it's in perfect condition (the cover is not.) However my B&O turntable gave up the ghost over 20 years ago and I never replaced it.

Ginger was the best.  No question.  (Only Watts can make an argument, but a very different style of play.)

 

I've seen pmts of that documentary, Billhike, been planning on checking it out.

Absolutely. It so interesting how early he got into African music. He was working in the "world music scene", before it had that name.

I've always liked Charlie Watts.  However, FWIW, I think the second best double bass drum player was Mitch Mitchell.

No greater rock bass player than Jack Bruce. Wrong again...that would be Geddy Lee

Both my personal opinion. But I am sure I have people that agree.

Happy New year to you, sincerely.  I will say one thing that I think you will agree with, the music of today simply sucks.

I can agree with Neil over Ginger. Both innovative in different styles. I’m not sure who would top Neil technically. Saw him on Rush’s final tour and was amazed to learn later that he was dealing with tendinitis in both shoulders and a foot infection. Geddy  is great but I’d go with Jack over him for really pushing the boundary of the instrument at the time. 

I rained on two parades.

Radios became popular in the 1920's, almost a century ago.  From Cole Porter to Woody Guthrie, from Metallica to Kendrick Lamar, there have been many styles, fads, and phases of music since.  But something different happened from the mid 60's through very early 70's.  Songs like "Gimme Shelter, "Visions of Johanna", or "Bridge Over Troubled Water" -- or albums like Abbey Road, or Tommy, or Highway 61 Revisited -- probably could not have come out at any other time.  And, certainly could not have come out all on top of each other at any other time with scores of other works also deserving of mention.

I'm now listening to Johnny Cash, specifically the Folsom Prison and San Quentin concerts.  Powerful stuff.

I went on a Band kick recently after reading both Robbie Robertson's and Levon Helm's autobiographies in succession. I listened again to their full catalog in chronological order. 

Even though they weren't particularly well received at the time, I still love Stage Fright and Cahoots. And especially Northern Lights, Southern Cross which had classics like Ophelia, Acadian Driftwood and It Makes No Difference -- all prominently featured in The Last Waltz.

Northern Lights...is a great overlooked album. If you look for it you'll notice that its format (who sings what song, at what place and the type of song) closely resembles The Band. The contract fulfilling Moondog Matinee is an album I wish didn't exist. (Though here's an interesting fact: The Salvation Army type song Saved, which I think almost no one ever heard before, showed up on Raquel Welsh's first TV special.) And the less said about Islands the better. I'm also not a big fan of the live album with horn section. For their only live album (not including The Last Waltz which is not really a regular live album) I would have preferred just the group. I did once own their bootleg on the Rubber Ducky label but it was pretty much unlistenable.

steve8... just a quick compliment on your eclectic tastes.  I often either find something new to listen to, or am reminded of something in the back of my racks that I need to pull when  I read your posts here.

Beefheart is under appreciated, imo.   I borrowed a variation of the title of Her Eyes Are A Blue Million Miles to use as a line on a date many years ago to great success.  

I saw him and the Magic Band at the Bayou in DC the very early 80s.  Still etched in my brain.

It's amazing the sickness that was going on with this man for almost my entire adult  life. I didn't pay much attention to him for the last few decades but always liked him.  "I Spy" is still very watchable.

I was thinking the same thing the other day about Santana. 

After watching a bunch of snippets of him on Colbert, I've been listening to a good bit of random James Taylor.  I'd forgotten how much his music was a part of my youth.  

If you like JT, do watch the interviews.  A quirky genius, this James Taylor fellow, and a great storyteller.  His confirmation on the origin of You Can Close Your Eyes. is worth the price of admission.

 A truly wonderful fingerstyle guitar player and a damn good songwriter.  Haven't heard a cut from his new album yet, but will definitely do so.

I saw a live performance on TV in the past month - can't recall where - and he seemed to be struggling with his vocal range. You could see him straining for the higher notes. Hopefully he just had a cold, because he's got such a great voice.

If he has his long-time band on this tour, it's well worth the price of admission. Phenomenal players including Steve Gadd on drums, Jimmy Johnson on bass, Lou Marini on sax, etc. If those names don't mean anything to you, google them.

Billy Joel.  Got into the mood for some reason.

Tremendous songwriter and performer.  I really liked his older music and some of his albums towards the end.  It would have been interesting to see him and Elton together, two people who can really play the piano.

From the LA Times:

"Led Zeppelin did not steal ‘Stairway to Heaven’ riff, court rules

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal appeals court decided Monday that the British rock band Led Zeppelin did not steal of portions of “Stairway to Heaven” from another band.
The ruling, by an 11-judge panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, stemmed from a lawsuit that accused Led Zeppelin of stealing portions of “Stairway to Heaven” from a song called “Taurus,” which was written by Randy Wolfe of the Los Angeles-based band Spirit.

A jury ruled for Zeppelin, deciding the two songs were not substantially similar. A three-judge 9th Circuit panel later threw out the verdict on the grounds the trial judge gave faulty jury instructions.
Led Zeppelin asked a larger panel to reconsider, and Monday’s decision reinstated the verdict."

That said, Led Zeppelin sucked then and they suck now.

That's what I rried to point out by re-editing my previous message, and as I've mentioned in another post, who cares what my opinion is? You can attack my favorite movies, artist, TV shows, Etc. It really doesn't bother me in any way because I beleve in my opinions. I assume everyone else does too.

I knew this started as a mild rebuke of me, but it would be an interesting point of discussion as I've mentioned before.

Who gives a shit about other people's opinions? Especially ones they don't even know on the internet? If they align with ours we think they're brilliant. And if they don't, they must be idiots.

Perhaps we’re just wondering if you could be a bit less of a rude asshole about...everything.

I was kind of talking specifically about you. You don't know me, you don't like me, so why do you care that I don't like Led Zeppelin? Even if I say it in such a mean way. Again, if you were to say, "The movie Citizen Kane sucks", I would not be calling you a troll or any other names. I might try to refute it. But it would not bend me out of shape.

Note, I have added a new disclaimer.

I’ve actually tried to be more civil and conversational with you recently. I’m certainly not bent out of shape - more confused as to why anyone would spend their time being constantly negative. Especially on a forum with a purpose of existence you seem barely interested in. At least the words “sucked then, sucks now” may save someone a little effort in trying to come up with a fitting epitaph for you one day.

I actually first used that phrase a number of years ago. Since then it has been used a few times by other posters--in a mocking way. I saw this article of interest in the LA Times and posted it with what I thought was a playful use of the infamous phrase.

"...why anyone would spend their time being constantly negative."

Actually a great majority of my comments about movies, television and art are positive. I believe the average is greater than 80%.

As for how I'm remembered when I'm dead, I don't think anyone can be harder on myself than me. (Or is it, "on me than myself?)

As for my epitaph, I already have it written out, I thought it was a dress rehearsal

However it's hard to beat Rodney, who, like Peter Falk is also at Pearce Brothers in Westwood.

Looking for some new bands to listen to.  I've been digging White Reaper and Eliza and the Delusionals (if you remember Juliana Hatfield, there is quite a similarity in sound).  I know I'm too old to be cool, but could use some new suggestions.  Music is about all that keeps me sane right now.

I am a very big Eric Dolphy fan. Are you familiar with The Quest? It was originally a Mal Walrdon album that was repackaged later as an Eric Dolphy album. Ron Carter is phenomenal on it.

Hey Old Man, no I have not heard The Quest. It looks like it is not available on Apple Music.

Time to switch to Spotify. It's available there as Mal Waldron's Fire Waltz.

I found Mal Waldron - Fire waltz, it has 7 songs and is about 41 minutes then there is a live version of the song Fire Waltz on an Eric Delphy compilation. I'll check it out.

Not a huge K-pop fan. I have a crush on all of Blackpink, though.

How can you listen to this...it is brutal.  There is no musical talent at all in this. Surprising.  

Way to GET ALONG.

I think the music is brutal.  I need to like what he likes to get along?

You could try not shitting on something that someone said they enjoy, hypocrite.

Considering they are breaking virtually every single chart record including ones held by the Beatles - I think they will survive Napacat's criticism

They definitely aren’t my thing, but neither is Burgundy. I found it amusing that the ass-clown posted that shortly after his disingenuous call for being nice. The only one falling for that was himself.

Lamb of God Pandora channel today. Nice amounts of Slayer, Testament and Hatebreed mixed in. 🤘🤘

Listening to at least 5 albums a day. Rimsky-Korsakov Sheherazade/Gergiev, Sibelius 5 Karajan, Mozart Serenades/Marriner, Sortilege - Metamorphose, Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Out, Vivaldi - Concert for the Prince of Poland/Manze, Psychotic Waltz (El Cajon prog legends return after 25 years).

Just so much that I love about that line.  Just the juxtaposition of words like El Cajon (suburb in East County San Diego), prog, and legends.  Any combination of the three makes me laugh.  

But keeping with the Sweet Home San Diego love, I've been listening to a lot of Unwritten Law and Blink 182 lately for some reason.  Late 90's pop punk is pretty much my favorite music in the world right now.

AZWeise, they were big in Europe and probably rocked SOMA with at least 25 people a few times.
