What are you listening to?

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Bill Shatner is great, even for a Canadian

(Listening now) Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, I love Rock and Roll

Must be round 40 years since this release, it's hasn't lost any of it's power or influence

Was reported that his wife was walking around with poo on her head.

When asked why……. It was because William Shatner.

Very juvenile, but still a gets a chuckle at the “scraping the barrel” stage.

The artist I've seen live the most is John Martyn, most times just him with Danny Thompson on double bass.

Solid Air.

A genius. I remember buying The Tumbler and loving it; I just kept buying his albums as they came out, in guess I have 15 or so.
Solid Air is an amazing album, the title track has always been assumed to be about Nick Drake.

Living next door to Alice, believe Smokie released it back in the day. They got a 1970's tribute on.

for those of a certain age 72 - 74 was one of the best eras for music, took a dip in the middle decade and recovered between 77 - 79 to provide further outstanding tracks. Fan of things like Blondie and Gary Numan so kind of biased but it's true, those select years were something else.

Aye, he and Nick Drake were friends and the song is apparently about him. I have the three Drake LPs and they get the occasional spin; I don't think he ever recorded a cheerful song though. Maybe "Northern Sky" comes close.

They are worth a few Bob if they are just pressings. I bought the 4-LP box set to get the 4th album, and gave away the second and third albums I already had. Keith the first one, it’s one of 3 albums I own that regularly sell for £300+.

My first two are UK reissues, '76 and '78 , Pink Moon is an original though, NZ pressing, that one is rare. To think he was still another obscure artist until Volkswagen used his song in an advert.

Shaking Stevens / This Ole House

The Welsh Elvis made a good effort with this re-release cover track, was a huge hit back in the day along with things like Green Door but kids today won't have no idea or memory of it.

Some of other Steven's releases are want for better word, questionable, but that one track alone still resonates today. 1981 was a great year for music, one of the very best. Not being biased because Town did so well, it were our finest season et cetera, there really were some fine releases and top drawer music. Such a shame what people are used to or choose to accept today.

That sounds like a medical condition, Saint ......, or murder?! :shock: :lol:

Can't believe you've mentioned 1981 and omitted "Vienna" not making No1 ! :lol:

Any love for Zappa?

I don't go much for his solo stuff but I do like The Mothers Of Invention. Uncle Meat is my favourite of his albums.

The Mothers Of Invention - The Air
messed up Doo-Wop

The Mothers Of Invention - Project X
what is this, prog? free jazz? I don't like free jazz, sounds like elephants mating, but this is good.

I like that. The only Mothers stuff I have legitimate cops of are Live at the Fillmore and Weasels Ripped My Flesh.
I have Zappa’s Hot Rats, Apistrophe and Overnite Sensation. I think that of all of those, Hot Rats is my favourite.

Spocks Beard, “June” live & the Whiskey.

What a tune ——>> June. 👍👌

Worth the entire 7 minutes guys. I think you’ll both appreciate this, Andy & Mauz.

Bit MOR for me Marko, reminds me of all things of America, nice acoustic guitar intro liked that.

Overnite Sensation is also a Mothers album, I think maybe not all the same band members as the early MOI. Hot Rats is probably his best known work, if you like that you'll like Waka/Jawaka, it's a sorta Hot Rats Part 2

Any Queen fans? What do you think of this: https://youtu.be/jYvcdhCbzJw

Lucked onto a nice local copy of Pet Sounds this week, it didn't sell much here so it's a bit elusive.

The Beach Boys’ masterpiece. A great album.

U2, Hold Me Thrill Me Kiss Me, just recent. This is easily one of their best ones, a clear deviation on their usual releases but it works. Would have been soundtrack to one of the Batman movies of the mid 1990's and wouldn't swap it with anything else. It's immense.

With considerable regret it was prevented from being a Number 1 in the UK by a pair of reprehensible c*cks going under the name of 'Robson and Jerome' . It's tough to add further on it without use of profanities. Hit the top in their native Ireland and other parts of Europe. Ever get a moment, check it out, it's an awesome track, you could listen time and again.

Enjoyed that. Just listened to a compilation of theirs, The First Twenty Years. Some good stuff, very varied.

Played some Eric Dolphy in the car earlier. Grabbed a cd at random. Didn’t know I had any of his. Jazz, quite experimental.
