A concept album, with the band pretending to be a series of different groups, playing in varying styles from psychedelic "The Last Thing I Remember, The First Thing I Knew" - The Atomic Enchilada, to surf music "Surfer Dan" - The Cross Fires, to bluegrass "Chicken Little Was Right" - Fats Mallard and the Bluegrass Fireball. "Food" - The Bigg Brothers, includes a brownie recipe with a special ingredient. Fun stuff, nice job covering different music styles. :D The inner gatefold includes pictures of the different bands.

I don't have that album, I don't know how I missed it. The only time I was at the Auditorium Stills was there then too. The venue was newly restored to its original (perfect) acoustics, a product of Louis Sullivan's engineer partner Adler. The place had been an abandoned wreck for years. It would still be difficult to find a better sounding place to hear music.

It was CSN&Y and it was the first time they had played in public. Joni Mitchel opened. The next day they played their second gig - Woodstock! I don't remember what I payed, but it wasn't much and their were no corporate sponsors. Those were the days. And very heady times.

Oh - they were great that night, Joni and the boys. I think we music lovers were born at a great time in history. I hope my kids, now teenagers, will be able to say the same thing.

Great story, that Auditorium must have been a nice venue in 1969. Heady times for sure.

You've seen this clip (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRLEVWR1jJk)of Joni, Grace Slick, CSNY, and others from the Airplane on The Dick Cavett Show the day after Woodstock?

I had seen that clip years ago but forgot about it. Thanks! There is a second clip of him performing "Four and Twenty." Sometimes I forget that Stills is a monstrous talent and think he is just an astonishing talent. Next to Neil Young, he still shines too and that is the highest compliment I can pay a musician. I saw them together once before in Buffalo Springfield; I wish I had caught more CSN&Y concerts. The brass ring for me would have been to see the Tonight's The Night band out somewhere. But I have never been to California and those gigs were low key and stealthy. My chances of talking to Garbo would have been better.

Stills being nearly destroyed by drugs is one of the most depressing events in music history, as far as I am concerned.

Sad, but looking back it's amazing how much he accomplished in the 60s and early 70s BEFORE he was 25 years old. in the middle of those times, losing Jimi Hendrix who I have read he was close to, plus having money and rockroll fame poured on him. I have never finished Shakey, that's a good reminder to pick it back up, thanks.

recorded fall 1970, this was the last James Gang studio album with Joe Walsh. More of Joe's signature scorching guitar work, multi-tracked into a "train wreck" on Walk Away. I'm comparing a couple of copies which appear identical except for the runout matrices, one has "1A" and the other "RE1" appended to the matrix numbers. The latter has "with love from Jessica..." script in the deadwax which appears on several JG titles.

Sounds like an early Dan Fogelberg album, with some amazing guitar picking and a thumping bass backbone & some pleasant, lightweight lyrics about nature and simple living. "Welcome Home" sounds like one from Jackson Browne's apocalyptic songs - Rock Me On The Water or From Silver Lake - and Browne's voice is heard clearly on the harmonies here. Nice.

Dusty Springfield - Dusty Springfield's Golden Hits
(1966, Phillips)

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o240/speakerlabfan/Records3/ds001-1.jpg

This is a compilation of her early hits. Some interesting trivia on Wikipedia:


During the Memphis sessions in November 1968, Dusty suggested that the heads of Atlantic Records should sign the newly-formed band Led Zeppelin. She knew the band's bass player, John Paul Jones, who had backed her in concerts. Without having ever seen them and largely on Dusty's advice, the record company signed a $200,000 deal with them. That was the biggest contract of its kind for a new band up until that time


Wayne Berry


I'd like to find that one. Your earlier comment on the notes in the deadwax reminded me of one I've seen, I think it was Dan Fogelberg's first,:dont-know: said "Recorded At Home".

I found some background information - Berry was in an L.A. country-rock band called Timber, they had a 1971 record on Elektra titled "Bring America Home". no doubt he ran in the same circles as Jackson Browne. I'll have to check for deadwax markings on the Fogelberg records, a good excuse to spin one. Joe Walsh played (and produced) some of the DF records, IIRC.

The Destroyer is a 4 LP set ...no track breaks , on the On Tour LP either
(duct tape at no extra charge .....$5 for the load)
*-just noticed band name misspelling on Destroyer- :eek:

also been listening to Stephen Stills & Massive Attack :bouncy:


* The Destroyer recorded 4-28-77 by Gig,Gena and Cookie Crum
Made in Brazil by Smilin' Ears Records

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Destroyer_%28Led_Zeppelin_bootleg_recording%29

The bootleg should not be confused with an audience recording from the following night in Cleveland, sometimes entitled The Destroyer. Though marred by poorer sound quality, and incomplete as a result of using 60min (instead of the longer 90min) cassette tapes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassette_tapes) for the recording, many critics consider this second performance better than the more famous first Destroyer gig.

LATER: did find this on the web

Smilin' Ears distinguished itself by being the first bootleg label to release a four-record Zeppelin box set, titled "Destroyer". The set originally listed as a Seattle recording, though it actually featured a concert from Cleveland in 1977. The set has become one of the best known and loved of all Zeppelin titles and has been reissued many times.

1977.04.27 Cleveland - Destroyer - The first 1977 SBD to circulate. An early 4 LP version was packaged in a large plastic case. The best available source is a 1st gen reel off the master cassettes. There are some cuts, but this version is the most and the best we have of this show. On the Must Haves list.

Various Artists - History Of British Rock
(1976, Sire)

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o240/speakerlabfan/Records3/br001-1.jpg

pretty ambitious to cover the "History of British Rock" in 2 LPs, not to mention licensing issues which no doubt dictates what's here and what isn't (no Stones, no Who, no Cream...). Starts off well with Fleetwood Mac's Black Magic Woman. includes tracks from The Animals, Cilla Black, Gerry and The Pacemakers, Donovan, Troggs (Wild Thing), Dusty Springfield (rock?), Mannfred Mann, Kinks, Freddie and The Dreamers, 1961 era Beatles (John Lennon leering his way through Ain't She Sweet). special treat - a young Rod Stewart as guest vocalist with a band named Python Lee Jackson. a simple non-gatefold cover with the LPs next to each other in plain white inner sleeves. A $1 pickup at HPB last month.

This album has been engineered to sound correct on JBL 4311 speakers or an equivalent. Best results will be achieved if you set your pre-amp tone controls to the flat position with the loudness control in the off position. Before adding any treble or bass to the sound of the album, it would be advisable to check it out this way first. F.Z.

(1971, Warner Bros) 1972 pressing with "A Horse With No Name" on the cover

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o240/speakerlabfan/Records3/am001.jpg


On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

clearly this is no ordinary pony ride. Just what are these hippies on? I heard this record a lot back in the day, I think I also had this on one of those bootleg 8-tracks that were sold from supermarket vending machines for awhile in the early 70s.

First studio album with Ron Wood as Mick Taylor's replacement, he plays on half the tracks, with the other tracks covered by Harvey Mandel and Wayne Perkins.


The album was promoted with a controversial billboard on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood that depicted the model Anita Russell, bruised and bound by Mick Jagger under the phrase "I'm Black and Blue from the Rolling Stones — and I love it!"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_Messages

Secret Messages, as its title would suggest, was littered with hidden messages in the form of backmasking (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backmasking), some obvious and others less so. This was Lynne's second tongue-in-cheek response to allegations of hidden Satanic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satanism) messages in earlier Electric Light Orchestra LPs by Christian fundamentalists (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_fundamentalist) which led up to early 1980s American congressional hearings (a similar response had been made by Lynne on the Face the Music (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Face_the_Music_%28Electric_Light_Orchestra_album%2 9) album, during the intro to the "Fire On High (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_On_High)" track).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secret_Messages#cite_note-0) In Britain the cover of Secret Messages has a mock warning to youth about the hidden messages.

There were several tasty records in the bins from someone with initials "RE". :( I think I have most of the Nesmith solo LPs but didn't have this one. Some great introspective songs here, written before and during his time with The Monkees. Looks like he was in good company when shooting pictures for the inner gatefold, "Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee" is the book title he is holding.

Another tasty thrift find this week apparently from the collection of "RE" < initials on the covers :( Nelson is a singer songwriter ("Down So Low") with a great voice. Her SF band Mother Earth played the Fillmore Auditorium, sharing bills with the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix in the 60s. I have a couple of other Tracy Nelson records, which feature pictures of her with dogs; this well-worn cover includes a picture of her with a calico cat.

2 LP set recorded live July 1975. Waits was 26 years old at the time with a voice that sounds like he's going on 60. love the seedy characters and the sleazy, cheezy low-brow American scenes that he paints in his songs. Mike Melvoin on piano.

aka "Skull And Roses"; 2 LP mostly live recordings. The Dead were just a 5-piece configuration when these were recorded in early '71, with Merl Saunders joining on organ for several tunes. the improvisational magic is there, especially Garcia, Weir, and with Phil Lesh holding the harmony together with that melodic bass while going off on his own excursions.

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o240/speakerlabfan/Records3/br002.jpg

The debut record for the 21 year old slide-guitar folk blues singer-songwriter. Love the Robert Christgau comment on the record & Raitt at the time: "renders all the Collins/Baez melodrama superfluous". Recorded at an empty summer camp on Enchanted Island, about 30 miles west of Minneapolis on Lake Minnetonka. "We recorded live on four tracks because we wanted a more spontaneous and natural feeling in the music," Raitt wrote in the album's liner notes, "a feeling often sacrificed when the musicians know they can overdub their part on a separate track until it's perfect." Leads off with a cover of Stephen Stills' Bluebird.

This one has been in the to-play queue for awhile. I'm photographing the inner gatefold/trifold, partly because the front cover has serious ring wear. recorded from concerts at The Troubadour in Los Angeles, California, the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium and at The Rainbow in London in the summer of 1973. a note about the production:

Unlike most live rock albums, there was no studio overdubbing allowed by Morrison, which resulted in the exclusion of "Moondance" from the album due to one wrong guitar note. Morrison strictly adhered to his concept of authenticity in presenting the live performance but his musical perfectionism prevented him from including "Moondance".[15] "It's common practice to go back and fix things, but not with Van," bass player David Hayes said, "I think that's what makes it one of the best ever."

weather been better lately and getting more bike time......got over to the flea market on Sunday and found Peggy
(what a great voice) ....and off to the thrift today and happy to grab "The Buckinghams GH" , good condition , 78 cents .....I've been a casual fan since high school ....love Mercy,Mercy,Mercy .

In approximately 18 months' time, The Buckinghams had Top 5, Top 10 and Top 20 records with the release of singles every three months, including “Don’t You Care,” “Hey Baby, They’re Playing Our Song,” “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” “Lawdy Miss Clawdy” (USA Records), "Susan" and “Back in Love Again.” Columbia quickly released two albums, Time and Charges and Portraits produced by Guercio. USA Records released an album composed of all the sides recorded at Chess Studios in 1965 that was simply titled Kind of a Drag on the strength of their #1 national hit. The Buckinghams were named by Billboard Magazine as “The Most Listened to Band in America” in 1967.

The California Guitar trio - 20th Anniversary Tour. They played at the Barns of Wolf Trap
last night and had a recorder going, then sold CDs of the show we had just attended afterwards.
Had a computer with 9 burners in it on the Sales table - and sold 40 CDs to the fans/audience ...!

These guys have an eclectic mix - from Dick Dale (Miserlou), theme from The Good The Bad and the Ugly,
a Bach prelude, Echos (Pink Floyd), Forbidden Colours (Sakamoto), Bohemian Rhapsody, plus a number of their own compositions ...
They've got about 10 albums out ...

Bert Lams - Brussels Belgium; Hidayo Moriya, Chiba, Japan; Paul Richards - Salt lake City, Utah.
They met during Robert Fripp's Guitar Circle courses over 20 years ago and have been touring
ever since. Amazing band of guys - highly recommended !

rocking out with the local homeboys, I agree with a music critic that I heard discussing the 90s ("I Love The 90s'") this week on NPR's All Music Considered show...these guys along with Nirvana, Soundgarden, Screaming Trees lots of others brought back guitar rock in the 90s, and made mainstream rock radio listenable for a brief period. 20 years ago! These guys are still making great popular music. I grabbed this record at a garage sale last summer for $1.

looks like you are getting into the funner stuff ....always liked "Blues Theme" too ....I think that enough time has been invested in finding B&S Tarkio , I'm going to surrender and buy a copy from ePay .....was amused at one of the sellers boilerplate ;)

http://cgi.ebay.com/BREWER-SHIPLEY-Tarkio-1970-VG-Garcia-Naftalin-Kahn-/390295888965?pt=Music_on_Vinyl&hash=item5adf72a445

HANDLING: Here’s what you get for your hard-earned money: LPs are joyfully told of their new home and songs of celebration are sung. Then they are gently nestled in a comfortable and sturdy record mailer. To help reduce their feeling of isolation, I entrust them with friendly and caring local representatives of the U.S. government within 3 working days after payment is received -- often the next day. Together, we sing a song of bon voyage (with other postal patrons singing impromptu harmony) and the record is quickly off to its appreciative and nurturing new home. An email is sent to you so you can prepare for the new arrival (locating its prime shelf space, putting up new wallpaper, organizing a “welcome to your new family” party, etc.). A return email from you when the new family member arrives is greatly appreciated and always results in a rousing and envious cheer.

got out today and tried the CD-game store...no vinyl , but found both the Clapton and Steppenwolf CD's - like new- for a dollar each....picked up the bird album and didnt know what it was ...the group's name is light gold on a dark background...

(1970, Columbia) 1985 issue on San Fransisco Sound label

I think this is a good follow-up but doesn't match their debut record. w/ Jerry Garcia: pedal steel guitar, banjo. More of the whirly floating psychedelic music on some songs, but more folky and earthy with the Garcia NRPS influence and also David LaFlamme was contributing to an early version of Dan Hicks & His Hot Licks at the time. The SF Sound label was/is owned by IABD's infamous first manager Matthew Katz, who had them playing at a club of the same name in Seattle in the late 60s. from Wiki: "From 1965 through 1973, Katz opened two different music clubs named "San Francisco Sound." The Seattle location was in a building on Capitol Hill originally named The Encore Ballroom. It is now a Public Storage warehouse"

Your contribution reminds me that I think there is a need for a similar thread that doesn't so much document everything anyone is listening to at the moment but suggestions for the best of what you've listened to that others might want to know about. For many of us (well, I'll speak for myself) that might be just great recordings regardless of genre. Something you'd want to turn others on to instead of what happens to be on the table at the moment. Maybe something like "Best-recordings recommendations, new or old". :dont-know:

I've come across some great recordings from mention on this site as well as offerings from friends. I'd love to share them but quite frankly I don't think those who might also benefit from exposure to them are interested in this thread enough to follow it for those infrequent nuggets.

That is a wonderful graphic. I guess you are not a K bike fan. ;)

Pretty early in this thread someone did lament that they thought its intent was as you suggest. I say no matter, it now exposes us to a whole bunch of music we might not otherwise ever hear of. No matter, that is, as long as there is another thread like you suggest. I say start it now! It will be like the two movie music threads we have, one being about soundtracks and the other about music. Room for both, and both valuable.

Another possible thread title might be "Favorite Recordings" or "Favorite Music." The latter would separate it, semantically, from recording quality and put it squarely in the music category. I feel that recording quality is, while a major high fidelity issue, a minor or irrelevant issue in reference to music. I sometimes listen to an old low rez mp3 of an old 1930s recording. It is the only way I have found it, and I enjoy it very much. Speaking for myself, it is all about the music. I think music can enrich our lives and our inner consciousness, but hifi can only facilitate experiencing music.

The word "favorite" is probably not good, now that I think about it. "Great" or "Superior" Music would eliminate the nostalgia factor. Music is not great just because it figures prominently in the soundtrack of our lives. What was playing when we had our first date with our wives may or may not be superior music.

It is nice that you trust my taste in Jazz, but sooner or later you will be burned, of course. I would say that if both Krunchy and I like a recording, go for it. :bouncy: Krunchy has great taste in music and equipment. He is a really great guy as well. I am proud to call him a friend. And he is the reason I ever heard One Flight Up, and a bunch of other now favorite discs. I expect that he would be a contributor to the new thread, as well as you and I.

Anyway, great idea.:applaud:

(1967, Elektra)

Recorded August 1966 at Sunset Sound Recorders, Hollywood, CA; released January 1967.

I'm listening to the 2007 Elektra/Rhino remaster....wow , the dynamics are really there ...LMF has been speeded up a tad, remaster was done by Botnick ..the original engineer, who opens the documentation saying "WARNING: This isnt the same album you've been listening to for 40 years. Well, actually it is and it isn't. So don't get freaked out...." ..."One of the most startling things was that the original album as it has existed on the street for 40 years is running slow and off key - flat" and he goes on into the tech aspects ...bottom line: THIS VERSION SOUNDS NEW & FANTASTIC !!

http://www.amazon.com/Doors/dp/B000MCIBE8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1301613033&sr=1-1-catcorr

(Jim sounds especially menacing on "Backdoor Man") ..... WOW :eek:

LATER EDIT: I dubbed this CD to minidisk and listened last night with the Senn 580's , the detail is fantastic , very solid bass , detail/group chatter that I'd never heard...

read further..."LMF" and "Break on Through" for 45 were the correct speeds, but the LP versions were slow ... on AM they needed a little more HF, so they wrapped a piece of splicing tape around the capstan to give a little more speed ...(so the faster speed compensated for the overall slower speeds,,,resulting in the 45 version being correct)
also, the speeds varied by
where the position in the tape was...ie; if the takeup reel was fuller, the weight slowed down the drive motors a tad ...so the first recorded on a reel was most accurate.

When "Light MY Fire" is re-speeded , it clocks in at 6:50 as stated on the cover as opposed to the 7:05 as stated on the CD and actual LP.

Funny you shud mention that group ..... I just watched the 3 DVD set of selected acts from the Dick Cavett show (1969).....one disk included The Airplane , and Stills & Crosby ...right after Woodstock.

Grace was just making usual noises, Crosby was showing off his lack of skills, and they were sitting in a circle on nauga mushrooms, Dick asked Stills if he was going to perform (since he had his guitar at the ready) ....WOW, that was the best performance of all 3 discs...Stephen HAS to be in the top 5 American guitarists, (and his vocals arent too bad either.) ;)
