One of my favorite albums. I have a fondness for many of the releases around that 1967 time period. Axis: Bold as Love. Disraeli Gears. Truth.

You have excellent taste.

First Who album I owned. Pretty creative with the commercials mixed in plus the great I Can See For Miles.

Ha! I think I have a copy of that album also! :D

I'm going thru all my ripped CDs alphabetically, 2 CDs each day. Yesterday I listened to Aaron Neville and Abba. Today it is AC/DC and Adele.

I fear some of the upcoming days will be painful! :oops:

Phish--specifically the Spotify playlist "This is Phish." This is a band I've been vaguely aware of for many years but never really seriously listened to. Really great stuff--the comparisons to Frank Zappa and the Grateful Dead are definitely warranted. However, like Zappa and the Dead, their catalog--particularly their live catalog--is overwhelmingly huge. It would take months just to listen to everything they've released, much less to really get a good understanding of it.

Though I learned the tune from David Bromberg, who talked of his time traveling with Jerry Jeff as his guitarist, soon afterwards I was introduced to Jerry Jeff's version and then more of his music. When I think of Jerry Jeff, the first song that comes to mind for me is his cover of a Guy Clark tune, L.A. Freeway. He might not have written it, but he might as well have, because it fit his style to a tee.

Make note of all good wishes...

Fleetwood Mac — Future Games (1970).

Sort of a transition between their earlier blues-based line-ups and the later, more famous mainstream pop line-up. Kind of illustrates how important Christine McVie was to the Fleetwood Mac sound, because her contributions on this album clearly foreshadow much of their later material. Several gems are offered including this one, Sands of Time, with a Byrds-like riff here, and an Allman Bros-like riff there...

So -- Fatboy Slim released a single in 2005 called "Don't Let The Man Get You Down", using a looped sample from "Signs", "And the sign said long haired freaky people need not apply."
Freely associating now... Fatboy Slim was in a musical collaborative called The Brighton Port Authority.
The BPA had a video featuring Iggy Pop vocals (and a stage puppet resembling).

My brother just brought me a box of vinyl LP’s that he had since college.
Some of them were mine from 40+ years ago.
I am sorting through the KEEP/Throw piles.
Some really good Bob Seger and Boz Skaggs.
Others I remember sounding better back in the day!

Rock 'n' Roll Party (Honoring Les Paul) — Jeff Beck, Imelda May, Gary U.S. Bonds, Brian Setzer, Trombone Shorty, and many others.

Recorded live at Iridium Jazz Club in NYC where Les Paul was a regular, on June 9, 2010, in tribute to the great Les Paul after his death. Jeff Beck playing Les Paul’s hits on a Les Paul guitar! Imelda May sang Mary Ford’s parts and was stunning! Also other pure gold rock ‘n roll and rockabilly. David Bowie in the audience. The whole show is also on YouTube, 2:40:12 in length. https://youtu.be/aJmAX8bMan8

This album alone is worth my music streaming subscription this month.

I'm working thru my music collection.

Yesterday:
Billie Holiday (performance in Paris, such a voice, but a multiple trainwreck personal life). :(
Billy F Gibbons (solo CD of one member of ZZ Top).
Billy Joel (I came late to his music, better late than never).
Black Sabbath (saw them, remember bits and pieces of the concert, must have been good).
Blind Faith (pretty much any collaboration of Eric Clapton and Steve Winwood is worth a listen).


Today:
Bo Diddley (actually saw him live at a Jaycee convention).
Bob Dylan (only 8 CDs, I have barely scratched the surface of this man's output, horrible voice and all).
Bob Marley and the Wailers (dead too young).
Bob Segar and The Silver Bullet Band (I think a lot of people know their music, but don't necessarily know who they are listening to. I'm guilty of that myself, sometimes, but not with this group).

Yep, another good release!

Taylor Smith and Carrie Underwood were/are our grandaughters' favorites. Both granddaughters have seen Taylor, and both have been to see Carrie in concert. DW and I made that concert as well, DDs treated us. Excellent performances.

I have all CDs of both artists, really interesting to see their maturity and subtle (and not so subtle) changes of direction. Still, for both of them I think their growth has been very good.

Yes I watched the whole thing, it was good. But I misapprehended that the whole Los Lobos band would play, actually it was just David Hidalgo and Louie Pérez of that band. I enjoyed the other bands too, especially the one with the electric violin, now I need to stream some of their music.

I never knew they had such a huge Day of the Dead celebration in Los Angeles, judging by the clips from past years. This year’s was canceled due to C-19.
