The new Jan and Dean vault release Filet Of Soul Redux - a late '65/early '66 contractual obligation album that Liberty Records refused to have anything to do with - is the batshitcraziest thing I've heard in a long, long time. Makes their Batman album sound like Ride The Wild Surf. Frank Zappa would have been impressed, if not scared.

Heard the new Dan Auerbach (sp?) record on the radio this morning. It sounded like Beck doing a Traveling Wilburys tribute record.

On that note, this morning I heard a tune by someone called "Portugal The Man", which sounded exactly like 'Please Mr. Postman'.

Anybody know why "club edition" LPs are usually priced higher than 1st issues on discogs?
I assume these are like BMG/Columbia House joints...
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I would assume that there are fewer of them in general circulation. Don't know why anyone but diehard completists would care.

Ah! Of course.
I can't imagine being bothered by it at all, but there's the discogs stats, so somebody must care.
In my experience they're often not as beat-up as your garden variety used record, either, so that might have something to do with it.

At the record store, in the day, when buying used CDs, we always paid less for record club product people would try to sell to us. It was pretty common.

See, that's what I always thought, too, but the four or five that I've got seem to be more prized, at least on discogs.
Shady record vendor cartel, probably.

Might deserve its own thread...?


Soon after the author started talking about the UK, I gave up. Wrong dates, attributions, etc. I expect s/he would probably be OK on the US, but the research on the UK was so drivellingly bad I couldn't handle it


I spotted a few errors for sure.
As far as I can remember 'Oi!' was a Gary Bushell coinage that originated in 1978 at the earliest.

Aside from that I think the main error is to give way too much credence to the influence of a very small group of obscure sub-genres.

Mind you, it's no bad thing to be vigilant.

You can sing Iggy & The Stooges' "Penetration" to Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing".

At least, I can.

I was stuck in traffic (traffic?! In Atlanta?! You don't say!!!) at the perfect time yesterday to hear a decent interview with Anthony DeCurtis about his new Lou Reed bio.

It's on the NPR site now:

I'd never heard that Lewis Reed cut before - it's pretty good!

Listening to the Rascals yesterday, I had a minor epiphany with "How Can I Be Sure". For all these years I've heard the final chorus with this punctuation in mind:

    How can I be sure, in a world that's constantly changing?
    How can I be sure?
    I'll be sure with you.

It always kind of bugged me - like an unconvincing happy ending.

It never occurred to me until yesterday that maybe it's actually

    How can I be sure I'll be sure with you?

- which is a perfect last line. If that is in fact what they intended.

There's some prescription medicine commercial on TV that uses the chorus of Fleetwood Mac's "Go Your Own Way", only not the FM recording. In fact they've changed the chord progression from vi-IV-V to I-IV-V, removing all the anger and frustration and turning it into a celebration. It sounds just like a TV commercial.

Yeah we’ve seen that.
I tried to tune it out but next time I’ll pay attention!
