What's in your pile? (pt. 42)

Postby Quaco » 12 Jul 2017, 23:07

One of my favorite ideas, just showing what kind of stuff you've actually been listening to, not what you revere, not what you're listening to RIGHT NOW, just what it's 'been like lately'.

(No cheating.)

John Entwistle - Whistle Rymes

Sun Ra - It's After the End of the World

Ratt - Out of the Cellar

Ringo Starr - Sentimental Journey (it was his birthday the other day)

Image

Simon Dupree and the Big Sound - Amen

Alfred Cortot - Chopin: Fourteen Waltzes

Rita Lee - Atra Do Porto Tem Uma Cidade
Image

Cocktail International Vol. 4

Os Haxixins - Under the Stones

The Best of Buddah Records

Jimi Hendrix - More "Experience" (additional titles from the Royal Albert Hall show/film)

Zombi - Shape Shift

The Hollies - Butterfly

Give-away CDs from work that I'm listening to (at work, natch). They fall into three categories:

1) Keep and bring home:

Teddy Thompson - Bella (surprisingly good! I find him dull usually, but it's his best set of songs. His dad guests, as usual)
The Gibson Brothers - Brotherhood (well-played old-school bluegrass. Might mine for songs at some point)

2) Keep at work:

The Cottars - Feast (Cape Breton folkies - nice fiddling and singing if a bit standard)
Peter Green Splinter Group - Blues Don't Change (Well-played, of course, but surprisingly standard and dull)
Indigo Girls - One Lost Day (Better than expected. Maybe I'll play it again in a few years :lol: )
Seether - Isolate and Medicate (Is this speed metal? If I'm ever in the mood for that kind of sonic assault - and it does happen - it fits the bill)

3) Put in the communal kitchen for someone else to take:

Judith Owen - Ebb & Flow (More ebb than flow. Dull, dull, dull. A soft jazz cover of "In the Summertime!" WHY? Cross her off my list of music I'm interested in. Maybe if she had Spinal Tap backing her up (she's married to Harry Shearer, in case you didn't know)...

Not high fidelity recordings for one thing, though very listenable, I think. Very heavy, very raunchy. Steve in particular liked changing certain words for comic effect ("the man in the back is ready to crap as he raises his arse to the sky"). The Kopenhagen one is my favorite.

I saw Judith Owen supporting Bryan Ferry 2 years ago. Her band was Waddy Watchel on guitar, Leland Sklar on bass and Russia Kunkel on drums with another guy on percussion. Leland has been touring constantly with her ever since. Harry must be ponying up the bucks. I met Shearer in the intermission and he was a sweetheart.

But back to the thread subject:

I'll show you my pile later (I'm at work) but this has been on very heavy rotation since I bought it last Friday. Very powerful and utterly brilliant.
