with an experimental microphone placement technique called binaural recording, apparently it's only really noticeable when listening through headphones. I'm not hearing anything unique about the recording listening through speakers, although the studio tracks as sound nice as expected since the mastering is Sterling Ted Jensen.
Binaural is for headphones. Recorded with a dummy head mike, the soundstage/imaging on headphones is incredibly accurate and convincing. There are way too few of these recordings since the early stereo era to satisfy we headphone listeners. In those days "Binaural" was often seen on LP covers.



Here's a 60's psych band I've always really liked. Their first/self titled LP "GUN" in particular is a timeless classic IMHO.

This album has been with me since it came out. A favorite of mine too.

If you want to look for an unpopular and rare offering from the late Sixties, find Cro Magnon. Not sure about the spelling. Haven't seen it since 1970. A friend and I liked it, everyone else we knew hated it.

GREAT SCORE! Classic Roxy, and that Petty album is a classic with some of his better songs IMHO--I have that one on vinyl too. Here are a couple of my favorites from that LP.....

I really think Petty is underrated by many. Great American rock and roll, tight band, melodic songs with hooks--there's a reason George Harrison, Rick Rubin, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, etc. all worked with him...(couldn't find a good recording of "Finding Out" on Youtube--another classic from that Petty LP)....

Edgar Winter's White Trash - Roadwork
(1972, Epic)

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o240/speakerlabfan/records%204/ew001.jpg

performances recorded at the Apollo Theater in NYC and the Whiskey A Go Go in LA. Listening to side 1/4. a fun production note from wiki:

At the start of their appearance at the Apollo Theater, the unidentified host who introduced them chided their evident late arrival saying (slightly off mic):

"Y'know, every time we used to go outta town for them jive jobs they give us, they always say 'black folks: late, can't be on time,' now look at the White Trash!" (chuckle)

The comment was met with laughter from the audience. After the introduction, the audience again broke out into sporadic laughter, possibly not expecting much from the band as it consisted of all white musicians, but their doubts were quickly dispelled when the band launched into "Cool Fool", a funky R&B song.

This snippet appears on the original vinyl release at the beginning of Side 4.

"We're An American Band" by GFR has Todd's production help. The guy was busy with his own and other projects from the mid 60s on, I continue to find his name on all kinds of records. In the case of the Hillage record, I'm sure it was a collaboration with Hillage bringing his Caterbury scene and Gong background, and with the Utopia band playng on the record. I bet Todd has some stories, he should write a book. He is mentioned a few times in Patti Smith's book, "Just Kids".

Nancy and Producer Lee Hazlewood join the bandwagon going to Nashville to record a country-pop album. Hazlewood brings in the real Nashville players including Wayne Moss and Charlie McCoy who played with Dylan on Blonde On Blonde. Hazlewood adds his unique baritone vocal on "Jackson" and "Oh Lonesome Me". a $1 pickup last month.

My son in Chicago got his Masters dissertation completed/submitted
and finally has time for enjoying life a bit ...since he got the L-56's a couple of
months ago, he's been missing his vinyl collection ....so last weekend he snagged
an SL-1200 mk1 and emailed me a list of LP's that he's longing for...
He's a big CLASH fan and remembered that I'd bought the 12 in. Rock the Casbah
vinyl for him a while ago ....have to admit that I'd never played it ...tho remember
that it had the widest grooves seen in my memory.
Decided to record it before sending it off .... WOW :D sounds wonderful :applaud: ... the
minidisk dub is the best that I've ever heard "RTC" sound ...:bouncy:

the photo gives an idea of the groove size, but w/o a size reference, it wont impress
you like it did me...

Left Banke's Pretty Ballerina

always liked that one and Walk Away Renee ....turns out they were both about the same girl ;) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walk_Away_Ren%C3%A9e

The real Renée

The song is one of a number Brown wrote about Renee Fladen-Kamm, then-girlfriend of The Left Banke's bassist Tom Finn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Finn) and object of Brown's affection. She was associated with the band for a few weeks, and described as a free-spirited and quite tall blonde. The song was written one month after Brown met her.[8] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walk_Away_Ren%C3%A9e#cite_note-Walk_Away_Renee-7) "Walk Away Renée" was one of a series of love songs the infatuated Brown wrote after meeting his newfound muse.[9] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walk_Away_Ren%C3%A9e#cite_note-8) Other songs written about her include the band's second hit "Pretty Ballerina (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pretty_Ballerina)" and "She May Call You Up Tonight". After decades of obscurity, she was identified in 2001 as a noted singer, vocal teacher and artist on the West Coast.[10] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walk_Away_Ren%C3%A9e#cite_note-johnstodderinexile.wordpress.com-9)

Fladen-Kamm was looking on during the recording of the song, and her presence nearly prevented its completion. In an interview, Brown stated:
"My hands were shaking when I tried to play, because she was right there in the control room," he says. "There was no way I could do it with her around, so I came back and did it later.[11] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walk_Away_Ren%C3%A9e#cite_note-10) "

German version of "A Quick One" Lp.

One more from...
THE KINKS - Face to Face [1966]

52806

Maybe the first conceptual rock album :hmm:
Great stuff by the Kinks and the Who in multiple posts here lately. Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy is probably my favorite 60's Who collection--tons of great songs like The Seeker, I Can See For Miles, Anyway, Anyhow.... etc.-- not a dud on the album! The Kinks are another band with real longevity--so many great Kinks albums from the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's....Here are a very few of my favorites:
http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee329/pullingstringsband/KINKS.jpg
Those of you who don't recognize the Kinks album "To The Bone" it was their last studio album and has new versions of many of their classics from the 60's as well as new material. Check out the 29 song track listing here on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Bone-Kinks/dp/B000002U40/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1315925715&sr=8-1
A shame Dave Davies had a stroke several years ago--that delayed or ended hopes of a reunion. Even though the Davies brothers don't get along, I still hope for a reunion (if Dave sufficiently recovers for a tour)..... In the meantime, Ray Davies is touring again in October and November this year and still writing and recording great songs--he includes a healthy dose of Kinks Klassics in his live shows to this day.... Here are the upcoming tour dates (one in Buffalo, NY is an hour from me--scroll down to see entire list).....

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o240/speakerlabfan/records%204/yes001.jpg
Great early Yes LP (their second album). Funny thing about this album is that even though Steve Howe is pictured on the cover--he doesn't appear anywhere on the album. Peter Banks, the original Yes guitarist, is on this LP but the cover was shot after the album was recorded (and after Peter Banks had been fired). Peter, by the way, is a great guitarist/songwriter in his own rite. Anyone ever heard of Peter Banks' band FLASH?

(1977, Chrysalis)

A $1 pickup a few weeks ago. This pressing includes "Watford Gap", last song on side 1. from the wiki write-up...

Originally the album contained the song "Watford Gap" which contained somewhat disparaging lyrics "...concerning the Watford Gap service station, a motorway service area situated between junctions 16 and 17 of the M1 Motorway, near Watford Gap, in Northamptonshire, England". "Watford Gap, Watford Gap, a plate of grease and a load of crap" sang Harper.[2]

"Subsequent pressings omitted the song at the behest of an EMI board member who was (also) a non-executive director of Blue Boar (the owners of the service station)..."

Frank Zappa--What can I say...... I think he will be remembered hundreds of years from now as one of the great musical geniuses of the 20th century. He mastered/wrote/recorded/performed in so many genres during his (all too short) lifetime including 50's rock, 60's rock, 60's psychedelic, jazz, classical, fusion, metal, classic (70's) rock, etc. and parodied many of these styles as well!

Zappa



Frank Zappa--What can I say...... I think he will be remembered hundreds of years from now as one of the great musical geniuses of the 20th century.

I have a lot of Zappa and MOI records and I appreciate the music for the clever and innovative playing and amazing arrangements but the stuff doesn't stick for me, there's something missing. Ok I get that life is weird and bizzarre and worthy of parody and tasteless, sarcastic lyrics and music, maybe I don't have enough exposure but I think I'm missing if he had anything (else) to say? maybe thats the point and I missing it, oh well.

Was scratching my noggin during this last ZappaLoveFest ...some of the titles are cute, one play only , but there is nothing that I'd want to own ..... SLF wrote my feelings on Zappa before I could. :blink: for me, there's just too much good stuff out there to waste my listening time on Z

Actually, I usually find SLF's comments to be very insightful and even in this case they touch on several poignant aspects of Frank's music. He mentions "clever and innovative playing", "amazing arrangements", and says that maybe he doesn't have enough exposure but he thinks he's "missing if he had anything (else) to say? maybe thats the point and I missing it, oh well." I think if SpeakerLabFan did have more exposure as he mentions (to certain Zappa LP's in particular), he'd be a real fan--especially if he likes Flo and Eddie "Illegal, Immoral, and Fattening" (a very Zappa influenced/Zappaesque LP). I like that he's got an open mind and says he may just need more exposure and likes the "clever and innovative playing, amazing arrangements". I'd be the first to say that Frank's music covers a wide spectrum and some albums are right up my alley, and some I rarely listen to. That's part of his genius IMHO. For example, I may not listen to much country music, but Frank could write and play country and actually do justice to it. How many artists do you listen to that can do rock, jazz, classical, country, fusion, etc. When I say he was a musical genius, that's part of what I mean. (not to mention his amazing writing and arranging and playing skills). And it just so happens, some of those styles I like and IMHO he does them quite well. Think of some of the artists who's rock careers really took off thanks to playing with Frank. He introduced artists like Jean Luc Ponty, Chester Thompson, George Duke, etc. to the masses/rock community--he could smell talent a mile away (and they obviously appreciated his talent enough to join his band).

Personally, I'm just not of the mindset to say that what someone else listens to here on this forum is a waste of time as you say about Zappa, Seawolf. I would never say that bands that Seawolf posts about like the Bee Gees and Billy Idol are a waste of time (some of their stuff wasn't bad--I try to keep an open mind to all styles of music and believe music appreciation is in the ear of the beholder and never call music that someone else likes a waste of time or categorize it/belittle it as "cute"/worthy of "one play only"). If you prefer the Bee Gees and Billy Idol to Zappa, more power to you and I won't call them a waste of time and I also won't say that you obviously need to buy some Q-Tips or some real speakers (kidding). No, I won't stoop to that level ;) I just don't see the merit or need in saying that music someone else on this forum likes is a waste of time "there's just too much good stuff out there to waste my listening time on Z" Seawolf, I know you've had some confrontations on your "Greatest ALBUM ever??" thread but I'm hoping that kind of thing won't creep into this thread. I am not confrontational by nature, but I will reply/stand up for an artist that someone on this forum likes being called things like a waste of time, cute one play only--that is confrontational and uncalled for.

Yes, Zappa parodied cultures, lifestyles, and musical styles, etc. like no one else could. That was only a small part of his genius--drawing attention to the ridiculous side of life (and anyone who doesn't see that there is a huge ridiculous side to life in these times should probably read the paper, turn on the t.v. or buy some glasses and look out the window). I'm sure you see that Seawolf. Please keep in mind that--no other musical artist has ever addressed that (long neglected in the music world) side of life like Zappa could-- before you belittle him or call his art a waste of time. I don't listen to Zappa for his lyrics anyways (although I often find them funny and insightful), I listen to his music for the songwriting and melodies and "innovative playing and amazing arrangements" to quote SLF. If you had ever seen him live (not live on tape--a very different experience), you may have been blown away by his performance/band/songs. If you never saw him live, you really missed out because that is an area where he really shined brightly. I know he's no Billy Idol or Barry Gibb, but oh well.....

OK, enough defense of FZ.....


Anyways, here are a few live Zappa clips. I wish I could find better quality videos of some of these live performances--but at least the musical quality speaks for itself if you have an open mind IMHO......

......his criticism of American life was novel back then, but now its widely done.

Agreed--something I forgot to mention--he was way ahead of his time musically and lyrically--another aspect of his genius. His lyrics poked fun at things like politicians' sex scandals/double standards as well as hippy lifestyles/philosophy back in the mid sixties--nothing, not even his (hippy) fans were out of bounds for his wit.....



If you will re-read, you will see that the quote says "waste my listening time on Z" ....your time is your own to listen to anything you want.

Yeah, but when you say "for me, there's just too much good stuff out there to waste my listening time on Z" that sounded like a pretty loaded statement--too much GOOD stuff out there to WASTE my listening time on Z". I'll take your word for it as far as your intentions. You've posted tons of great music here and on other threads like best song and best album threads and I've enjoyed your posts and album pics (and album picks!)--my apologies if I misunderstood you. We can certainly agree to disagree on Frank's talents, I respect everyone's opinions and tastes especially on something that is so arguably subjective as music (vibrations in the air).....

Great pick--one of my favorites as well. As you probably noticed, the first Zappa video I linked to in my previous post is a live version of "Inca Roads" (studio version originally appeared on One Size Fits All)--sounds great live too! His band was (scary) good in those days--Chester Thompson on drums, George Duke on keys, Ruth Underwood on vibes, Tom Fowler on bass, Napoleon Murphy Brock on vocals/woodwinds......

an international only compilation with an interesting playlist... from information at this site (http://Like"]http://www.searchingforagem.com/1960s/InternationalCompilationsDylan_1960s.htm"]site.

Like[/URL] the first Dutch Greatest Hits (see above), this album had a quirky tracklist.
Side 1: I Want You; One Of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later); It Takes A Lot To Laugh (It Takes A Train To Cry); Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues; Masters Of War; Chimes Of Freedom
Side 2: Just Like A Woman; Obviously 5 Believers; Rainy Day Women # 12 & 35; Gates Of Eden; Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat; Absolutely Sweet Marie (misspelled as "Mary" on both the rear sleeve and the Side 2 label of the LP release and the rear insert and CD of the CD release below)
I can't date the label but it's not the original pressing Orange/Black label, I'm guessing it's 70's issue. I grabbed this at HPB on the way home from work today for $6.

I have not heard them all, but the Zappa project closest to my Alexis de Tocqueville eye on our culture heart is An Evening With Wild Man Fischer.

When I saw Frank and The Mothers live, and spoke to him afterword, it was obvious he was operating musically and culturally light years beyond what most of pop music was about at the time, or today. He was the next best thing to Milton Babbitt crossed with Nabokov.

I admit that Babbitt is the one I would be most likely to play at this point, but I have never had the Fischer double album leave my consciousness, even forty-three years later. "The Leaves Are Falling" goes through my head a lot. Almost as often as "Books of Moses" and "Weighted Down" by Skip Spence. If I were to play all of this on my stereo, I would have to work "I Heard Her Call My Name" and perhaps "Sister Ray" into the mix somewhere. Along with heavy Jazz, Glenn Gould, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, Pretenders II and some Santana, this set would involve most of the most powerful music I have ever heard.

To be fair, there are hundreds of albums/CDs in the hunt, but these works are a cut above. With heavy Jazz, there may be thousands of works in this category for me. I would listen to all of this before playing even one Classic Rock track, but that is the mind of "Wild Man" Clark.

RAM is one of my all time favorite Beatles solo LP's. I was at my local record store several years ago and the guy I deal with there recommended the 24 karat gold remastered RAM CD. He said "the sound quality will knock your socks off". He's a real vinyl aficionado (as I am) so I was surprised to hear him rave about this CD. I bought it, and was blown away by this recording. After hearing the first song, I studied the CD info and learned it was "Remastered for CD by Steve Hoffman"..."The original unequalized two-track master mixes were used in the making of this compact disc". I'm so used to CD's often times sounding inferior to vinyl recordings of the same album, I confess that I was surprised that this CD does sound substantially better than either of my two (mint) vinyl copies of RAM. Highly recommended----Steve Hoffman is a wizard in my book.......

The title of the seventh track, "Alan in the River With Flowers", is a parody of The Beatles' song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, and was given its original title of "Float Me Down The River" on the American version.

The concert was great as always with Ferry. The sound was one of the best I heard at the large places as Belgrade Arena. There's only two things that bug a little. There was only 5.000 to 6.000 people in the hall capacity of over 20.000. Last couple of times they played at smaller venues and that was much better.
Second thing is some healt issues Bryan had lately and it seems he's not fully recover. So they made 20 minutes pause in the middle of the show. Anyway the band was great and fix all troubles. Bryan even appeared on a popular show at some local TV station and that was great too.

they don't run ....but they have to get out to the originating site (of the embedded link) , pull the info and put up the viewer in case I do want to run them.

I thought we had a separate thread for YouTube videos ?
That shouldn't even matter - again, you are not playing videos directly -
Getting a screencap picture and a link to a video URL shouldn't use any real bandwidth at all ...

If anything, the delay is more likely due to all these album cover pictures getting loaded from 3rd party websites
(flicker, photobucket and that kind of thing) - I don't even see most of them through the firewall at work.

thanx for the enlightened reply ....but if you read a couple of posts back, I am near a WIRELESS ROUTER, NOT 3G , also you may note that I said only this thread and Ashlies load slow....and you don't load the whole thread when reading it, so size of thread really makes no difference ...it loads 1 page at a time.

Well then maybe the issue is local. I run an iPhone and iPad here on wireless, even on 3G they load these threads fast. Each page will load as a whole and with the amount a graphics things can get slow. Try a hard connection to your router and double check the speed.

Bruford - Feels Good To Me
(1978, Polydor) UK pressing

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o240/speakerlabfan/records%204/bb002.jpg
Great solo LP by Bill Bruford--really shows off his "chops"! Features Allan Holdsworth on guitar--an amazing player as well (and the legendary Jeff Berlin on bass). It put me in the mood to listen to some (jazz/rock) fusion. Here are some other great recordings with Bill....
http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee329/pullingstringsband/Bruford-1.jpg

http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee329/pullingstringsband/Bruford-2.jpg

And a few of my favorite Allan Holdsworth solo LP's

http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee329/pullingstringsband/Holdsworth.jpg

I saw Allan Holdsworth earlier this year at "The Lovin' Cup" here in Rochester, NY. Amazing performance by him and his band (Chad Wackerman was incredible on drums that night--anyone ever heard of him?).....

And while I was in that jazz/rock fusion frame of mind, I dug out a few vintage Brand X LP's--phenomenal band featuring Morris Pert on drums and percussion, John Goodsall on guitar, Percy Jones on bass, Robin Lumley keyboards.....
http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee329/pullingstringsband/Brand-X.jpg
Yes, that is John Goodsall's autograph on my copy of "Moroccan Roll". A band I used to play in was fortunate enough to open up for Brand X back in the 90's......
Those of you unfamiliar with Brand X, here's a song from one of their LP's (really starts to gel about a minute and a half into it--hang in there ;))

Here's a great song for you fusion fans from my favorite Bruford LP "One of a Kind"

http://www.amazon.com/Marscape/dp/B000001Y0W
I hadn't heard that he passed away--age 63--way too young! (but unfortunately not all that young in the music business). I would have loved to see Brand X back in their early days, as well as the Marscape tour--must have been great shows. Morris plays percussion/drums on tons of recordings in my collection--he will be missed...... I found this (very incomplete) list of some of the artists he recorded/performed with at allmusic.com

"Pert (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/pert-p113815) is best known for his work with the pioneering group Brand X (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/brand-x-p3763). He also worked extensively over two decades in the recording studios with notables Paul McCartney & Wings (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/paul-mccartney-wings-p197872), the Crazy World of Arthur Brown (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/the-crazy-world-of-arthur-brown-p198343), Elvis Costello (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/elvis-costello-p3968), Alexis Korner (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/alexis-korner-p412), Andrew Lloyd Webber (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/andrew-lloyd-webber-p1219), Yvonne Elliman (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/yvonne-elliman-p17301), Kate Bush (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/kate-bush-p3805), Mike (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/mike-p5065) and Sally Oldfield (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/sally-oldfield-p19670), Peter Gabriel (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/peter-gabriel-p4328), Bryan Ferry (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/bryan-ferry-p4244), Caravan (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/caravan-p16292), John Martyn (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/john-martyn-p2063), Jack Lancaster (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/jack-lancaster-p18789) and Robin Lumley (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/robin-lumley-p99960), and Phil Collins (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/phil-collins-p3942). Among Pert (http://www.allmusic.com/artist/pert-p113815)'s awards are five gold albums, an American ASCAP award, and a nomination by the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences for his recorded performances. His music has been issued worldwide on the Buckyball label."

I (re) bought John Entwistle's first two albums on SUNDAZED a while back and the remastered sound quality is fantastic--the SUNDAZED remastered CD version blows away the sound quality of my (mint) LP version (which is a pleasant surprise for me--for a CD to sound better than the original vinyl version)......

Pink Floyd week this week on Jimmy Fallon's show. NBC weeknights at 12:35 am. Every night this week a different band will perform a Pink Floyd cover to celebrate Pink Floyd releasing the remastered version of their entire musical catalog (studio albums only). Last night, Nick Mason was a guest on the show and the Shins did a cover of "Breathe" (not a bad rendition either---a better version than I thought the Shins would be able to pull off).... I'm more psyched about tonight's upcoming show--it will be the Foo Fighters doing a Pink Floyd cover with ROGER WATERS SITTING IN WITH THE FOO FIGHTERS!

They have 35 independent vendors and my fav has the best condition & selection of dollar records in the whole place. He seems to restock by artist. This time there was a lot of Rolling Stones, so that's mainly what I ended up with. $7 total. (well actually $6.30 ....I was first one in the door at 11am ....asked the clerk if first customer of the day gets a discount ...he gave me 10% off )

Such a great record. if you listen carefully you can hear the light bulb going on in Brian Wilson's head the first time he heard this record. I purchased this copy new back in the mid 70s. It kicks the US copy to the curb, although the US track list has always seemed like the real record, since that record has the track order and folk-rock flavor that I first heard and played to death in the 60s.

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o240/speakerlabfan/records%204/ac003.jpg
I never cease to be amazed at some of the phenomenal LP's that are posted here. Alice Cooper is a very under-rated artist IMHO. A lot of people think of him as that heavy metal/hard rock guy of the 90's and this last decade. Many don't realize (or remember) his work in the 60's (they were a "psychedelic" band in the 60's) and 70's with his original band was unbelievably well written and performed classic rock and roll with all the melodic hooks and intricate arrangements you could ever want (and those "glory days" albums were all produced by genius producer Bob Ezrin)..... There are so many great songs on this "Love It To Death" LP that you posted--besides his first hit "Eighteen". Second Coming, Ballad of Dwight Fry, Caught In A Dream--I could list the whole album! Here are some of my favorites by Alice's original band.
http://i532.photobucket.com/albums/ee329/pullingstringsband/Alice.jpg
ALBUMS (left to right) Muscle of Love, Billion Dollar Babies, Killer, Love It To Death, School's Out..... A lot of people aren't aware that Alice Cooper was a band and not a solo artist in the 60's and first half of the 70's (before the original band and Alice parted ways)--those "glory days" albums were co-written and arranged by the band. When the band broke up, his music went way downhill IMHO.......

Some music from Alice's original band for those who haven't heard much of this stuff--these guys were fantastic--PLAY IT LOUD!!!

Glancing at some recent posts it appears the cover is involved. Sorry. I did not supply that:o:

However, another great cd/album is Stephen allen Davis-the light pink album. Has ANYONE heard it?

I haven't - looks like he's quite a songwriter with 250 recorded songs. will have to keep an eye out for that one.

Alice Cooper - The Alice Cooper Show
(1977, Warner Bros)

http://i122.photobucket.com/albums/o240/speakerlabfan/records%204/ac001-2.jpg

It's too bad that a live album wasn't issued before 1974. I saw them for the Billion Dollar Babies tour in 1973, great show. This has some of the great early material but it's not the same band by 1977 when this was recorded in Las Vegas. A dollar bin find from last month.




I never cease to be amazed at some of the phenomenal LP's that are posted here. Alice Cooper is a very under-rated artist IMHO. A lot of people think of him as that heavy metal/hard rock guy of the 90's and this last decade. Many don't realize (or remember) his work in the 60's (they were a "psychedelic" band in the 60's) and 70's with his original band was unbelievably well written and performed classic rock and roll with all the melodic hooks and intricate arrangements you could ever want (and those "glory days" albums were all produced by genius producer Bob Ezrin)..... There are so many great songs on this "Love It To Death" LP that you posted--besides his first hit "Eighteen". Second Coming, Ballad of Dwight Fry, Caught In A Dream--I could list the whole album! Here are some of my favorites by Alice's original band.


agree, pre '74 up to Billion Dollar Babies the band was about some very formidable and tasty rock. Later on it's theatrics and AC's battle with alcoholism.

I heard that they were serving tall glasses of strong Ale for $3 per, at the Night Owl show and that really loosened up some of the buyers and sellers. Records start passing around like poker chips! :)

Yeah, the later band, while some may argue were more technically skilled on their instruments, just didn't play with the "passion" that the original band did, not to mention, didn't co-write phenomenal songs like the original band did.

I wish I had seen Alice back in the glory days--Billion Dollar Babies era must have been a phenomenal tour! Would have been great to release a live album back then. Fortunately, at the time there was a theatrical release of the tour (in theaters) called "Good To See You Again" which is a full length concert film of the "Billion Dollar Babies" tour. The music/musicianship, song selection, theatrics, high level energy performance, is stellar IMHO for this concert film. Only possible downside is on some of the songs they don't show the band as much as they show Alice's theatrics, but that's not surprising considering how controversial/outlandish their live show was considered back then. It was finally re-issued by Shout Factory/Eagle Vision a few years ago--highly recommended. Even if you're not a fan of rock concert DVD's, just turn off your TV and it makes an incredible live album of what was probably one of Alice's best tours......

Lots of info plus track listing etc. on the live film here: (also available on Blue Ray)

I spotted a Steve Hoffman mastered copy of this title on the S&P label the other day, so I wanted to pull out my copy for a listen. It's a nice warm early 70s recording, lots of bass. a great title too, with Graham Nash, George Harrison (credited as "son of Harry"), Jim Keltner, Carl Radle, Greg Reeves, even Stevie Wonder on one track, along with other uncredited greats. The radio station sticker on the front cover has been on there since April 17, 1976 according to the date stamp and it's not coming off without taking the cover with it. :(

Dave Mason



Dave Mason should be revered instead of living in relative obscurity. I think he is still in California? He is greater than almost everyone who is now widely heard.

I agree, and I think the same can be said of his fellow bandmate in Traffic, Steve Winwood - maybe less obsurity for Winwood but he deserves more too. Mason might have fared better if he hadn't kept quitting and re-joining Traffic? An interesting bit on wikipedia:



Mason was a friend of legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimi_Hendrix), whose career was launched in England in
1966. Hendrix first heard the song "All Along the Watchtower (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Along_the_Watchtower)", by Bob
Dylan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Dylan), at a party to which he was invited by Mason, and promptly
decided to record (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sound_recording_and_reproduction) his own version (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cover_version). That night he recorded the song at Olympic Studios (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olympic_Studios), South West London (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London), with Mason playing acoustic
guitar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steel-string_acoustic_guitar). It was released on the Electric Ladyland (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_Ladyland) album in September 1968.[5] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dave_Mason#cite_note-NorthCoast-4) When the
song came out as a single (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single_(music)) in October, it hit #5 on the UK
Singles Chart (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UK_Singles_Chart) and was a Top 40 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_40) in the U.S (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_states). Mason later recorded his own version of the song
on his self-titled 1974 album, Dave Mason, with Bob Glaub on bass.
