It's been a wild week...just wondering, what's been in your steady rotation to help smooth out the rough edges?
Here's my list for the last few days:
Moby Grape/ '69
Sun Ra/ Supersonic Jazz
Haydn/ Symphony No. 98
From speed metal to bubblegum pop... who cares, weigh in!
Moby Grape/ It’s a Beautiful Day Today
Josh Rouse - Nashville album. Feel good.
Classic Rock, baby. Channel 101.3 outta Orange County.

Doesn’t get better than that.

Early or late?

If I listen to music it is classical.
I can not tolerate acid/hard rock.
I do want to promote a great web site for listening to ANY radio station/program.
Since I am 12 hours from US time, it is great for me to be able to play back Savage, Rush, and others.
You can record one program for free, or you can subscribe to get many.
The program is on their server, so your computer does not have to be on to have it recorded for you.
It just so happens the bar up the street has a band outside in the parking lot today. Sounds pretty good from here. The wind is whipping around so sometimes its loud and sometimes you can’t hear very good.
Have you seen the Luna documentary “Tell Me Do You Miss Me?”
It’s excellent. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fIdy1UYVR8
I’ve seen them live at least ten times, and I would say a late November snowstorm Lupo’s Luna show in Providence [with my future wife] pretty much cemented my marriage back in ‘95.
This Carulli Polonaise always makes me happy:
And this Schubert calms me:
And Bessie Smith is the queen!
I thought it was “Aaaaah Bach.”
PINK FLOYD, Coming back to Life.
Right now I am watching Springsteen and E Street live in NYC...playing on Palladia.
I’m interested in what you’ve been listening to this week. Your musical knowledge is wide.
Happy Days reference
“Who by Fire?”——Leonard Cohen
I’m listening to people axing me: “What are you listening to?”
I think it was the scene where Fonzi is dating a sophisticated chick and Richie is coaching him on cultural issues.
Very cool about the show and your wife.
I haven’t seen the documentary except for the clip of the song 23 Minutes in Brussels that’s posted on YouTube, which apparently is taken from it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81Sv57rbujA
I just discovered Luna about a year ago and they are great. I actually bought Rendezvous when it originally came out, listened to it once, didn’t get it, and then didn’t listen to it again until sometime last year on a whim. For some reason it clicked this time. Since then I’ve gotten a few others — Pup Tent, Penthouse. They’re cool too but Rendezvous is my favorite, probably because it’s the one that first “imprinted” on me.
Jim Ed Brown and the Browns.
Since I keep a listening log, I can just post my playlist from the last two weeks:
The Byrds - Never Before
Prokofiev - Romeo & Juliet - Maazel
Renbourn - The Black Balloon
Sibelius - Symphony #2 - Schippers
Sibelius - Violin Concerto - Ferras/Karajan
Cream - Disraeli Gears
Cream - Live Vol 2
Prokoffiev - Symphony-Concerto for Cello - Leinsdorf/BSO
Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Richard Thompson - Electric
Oldham Tinkers - Sit Thee Down
Prokoffiev - Symphony #6 - Leinsdorf/BSO
Frager - Chopin Recital
Owl Service - Garland of Song
Trees - On the Shore
Trees - Garden of Jane Delawney
The House Band
The House Band - Pacific
Mancini - The Pink Panther
Richard Thompson - Old Kit Bag
It’s not as heavily classical as usual for some reason - maybe spring is in the air?
Every one of their albums are good, each with a different tone. Owning the whole catalog is a good thing. I recommend checking them all out.
Can’t listen to this while I’m driving - about halfway through, the gas pedal starts going down, down, DOWN....
Boston greatest hits.
Just bought it on iTunes earlier this week.
Crosby Stills Nash &Young
