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.

My neighbour came round for a meal tonight. My music of choice:
David Grisman “Hot Dawg” for an instrumental jazzy folky start.
Dory Previn “Mythical Kings And Iguanas” because I love her voice, and she wrote some very personal songs.
Martin Simpson, Andy Cutting and Nancy Kerr “Murmers” for a bit of folky genius.
And finally Oscar Peterson “Night Train” Classic jazz piano.

Haven’t played any of them in ages.
Earlier on today I played John Fahey “The Legend Of Blind Joe Death” and Gordon Lightfoot “Summertime Dream”.

And today’s delights so far:
The Animals, “Animal Tracks” followed by The Bevis Find, “Inner Marshland”. Essentially just one man, Nick Salomon, playing virtually every instrument. Guitar freakouts, weirdness, even a bit of Sooty & Sweep. Recorded in 1987, strong hints of late 60s/early 70s psych.

Peter Green-era Mac were superb. Much greater popularity and money later on, but I only play the earlier albums.

Just been playing the first Ultimate Spinach album. A bit contrived, showing its influences, but a nice listen.

Lyndsey Buckingham fan myself……. This is longer at 8:27 but if you scroll to 4:00 and watch until end……. Still raises the hair on the back of my neck. Proper rock n roll guitarist and very underrated.

Haha, Then Play On is their best by 8 points minimum. I have a local issue of the Ultimate Spinach album, wasn't so long ago I played it, I probably don't need it.

You've got to come from a certain planet to know any of the AndyM or Mauz stuff. :lol:

But....., each to their own tastes and all that.

Jackie Leven, one of my musical heroes.
At a time when I was getting bored with music (the tail end of the 70s/start of the 80s) he burst through with the magnificent Doll By Doll who made 4 albums. I picked up the first having read an article in the great Zigzag magazine. After Doll By Doll he made a number of solo albums.
He had a troubled life in many ways including drug and alcohol addiction and a physical attack where his throat was slit that stopped him singing for a while.
A great voice, some brilliant songs.
You can read about his life at https://www.allmusic.com/artist/jackie- ... 0000107023


Really wish I’d managed to see Doll By Doll live.

Ah, the first Velvet Underground & Nico album. Sadly, only have a reissue. I only ever saw an original once (with the peel-off banana sticker on the cover. They say that very few people bought the album initially, but everyone who did went out and formed a band.
Post-Velvets I only ever bought Lou Reed's Transformer and a couple of John Cale's. Cale's were strange, I'm sure one has a cover of Heartbreak Hotel.

Let's see....

That's different, I like interesting cover versions. The only Cale solo album I have is Vintage Violence. I did have a '66 mono US original of VU&Nico, "second state" cover peeled banana though. Was fairly rough, swapped it with a friend for a rare white labelled UK '69 copy of Dr. Strangely Strange's Kip Of The Serenes.

Record collecting's a daft hobby innit?

I have a CD copy of Kip Of The Serenes, very nice.
Yes, a daft hobby. I should stream really but I just keep buying. Probably about 3000 albums and CDs in total, I guess 1500 of each. And my kids will just bin them when I die - and they'll curse me for the inconvenience!

Khan - Space Shanty. A slightly more obscure piece of Canterbury stuff featuring Steve Hillage on guitar.

Been listening to Rangers/Astros ALCS since I don't have the tv channel to watch. I used to listen to games on the radio when I lived in Texas, but I'm using an app to listen here in Georgia.

Anyone else still listening to live sports on the radio?

All the time, 9. Refuse to pay for any sports channels. I listen to Open All Mikes on BBC Scotland Sportsound most saturdays (if not acquired an Easter Road ticket) …… and listen to all Richmond Tigers games on the AFL App.
Very entertaining. 👍

Bob Dylan - All The Tired Horses

Probably my favourite Dylan tune, from probably my favourite Dylan album. The one all the Dylan fans hate.

It’s an album I don’t have. I think I have 17 Dylan albums, but didn’t like this one and have never bought a copy. It’s certainly different to much of his other output.

Yeah I know, it's just got something different about it that I like. Bit like Beefheart and 'Unconditionally Guaranteed', also my favourite when all the fans say it stinks. Mind you, when they heard it, the band upped and left too.

Yes, Unconditionally Guaranteed is the only pre-80s Beefheart album I don’t have.
I remember when Safe As Milk came out, I guess about 1967. I was amazed, never heard anything like it. Today it sounds quite normal. A great album though, featuring art Cooder I believe, who then quit because he didn’t want to tour.

Last show I saw live was William Shatner. Was a one man show so not a music thing.

Has Been is well worth a listen. Nice cover of Common People.
