Too bad Phil's shoulders( I think) are so done he can't play drums anymore; he was a wicked drummer and I'm glad I got to see him with Genesis once...it was the poppier years at the end but he still didi some cool drum-offs with Dennis Chambers; kinda the big time equivalent of the current Melvins lineup- dual drummers can be awesome...Tony

Tony,

That would actually be Chester Thompson, who also played with Frank Zappa.

Saw Genesis for the first time in 1982, was the 10th anniversary of Foxtrot. They did Supper's Ready in it's entirety. BEST SHOW EVER...

I actually never knew Phil could play the drums so well until I listened to some of his older stuff! Being from Ann Arbor originally, I was an Alice Cooper freak back in the day. Hey Mica, I"ll take some Galactic any time. I use to have every Jethro Tull Album and still have some on disk. Great bass lines and those fairies dancing in the woods are hard to ignore. I also like this thread as it turns me on to some new stuff. Today it was Americana Rock with Darkness On The Edge of Town by Springsteen

Since I'm doing a Jimi Hendrix thing along with the Led Zeppelin it got me thinking of Roy Buchanan and what a player he was. So I listened to this.
Austin City Limits circa 1976....

Wow! that is a monster player!

A few observations...I love the bass that dude's playing; such a cool finish...the clothes are BAD (and this coming from a guy who owns and wears vintage shirts with wide collars...

I also spotted a nice Traynor Custom Special behind the keyboardist; those are seriously cool amps-and loud-the only tube amp at the time to compete with a SVT; it used a weird tube usually used in tv's...most today have had 6550's put in them(a direct replacement) and they're still loud as hell; a friend of mine has one and it'll peak out at 170 watts or so, scary loud...the coolest things about those amps though is a few things; two lights, red and green so you could tell if the amp was on standby or ready to go, they were built like old Fenders with eyelet board but with better transformers, and the era seen in the video had a cool feature where the top of the box was held on with four bolts; remove them and the top came off and you could service the amp without removing the chassis...I have no idea why no one else has done this, it is genius...Tony.

Sergei Rachmaninoff - Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27

I've never heard this before. A friend posted on another site that he was listening to it, so I thought I would give it a listen. Interesting textures and transitions; it's keeping me wondering where he's going to go next.

I don't know if this is from the Merriweather Post Pavillion (8/27/77), but if so, I was born the day after the performance....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oJYRtOPUonA

I was adopted 11/77, and just last week I figured out who my birth mother is... I have three half-sisters and they seem super-cool....

Either way, Lindley F*U*C*K*I*N*G rules, and this is the story of my life.....

Same inspiration here.
Listened to Made In Japan.

I got that album over 25 years ago and remember being blown away by the intensity of every song - I don't think I could pick one favorite track from it.

It's funny how the lineup w/ Morse has outlasted all the classic lineups combined. My cousin worked merchandise on the first tour w/ Steve and that was almost half a lifetime ago... (We're pushing 40).... Anyways.... One that always sticks out since I got the Bolin boxset back in grade school:

"A letter home" Neil Young's latest, recorded with Jack White live in an antique acetate recording stall; the fidelity is crappy, where the guitar often sounds like ukelele...it's all cover tunes as well, but it sounds SO Neil...It's amazing that he can change instruments,bands and genres, even media and he always sounds like him...it's funny that his playing is the most 'normal' on piano, but I put that down to the limitations of piano...Tony

So I recently just got a turn table back in my life. I bought a vintage receiver off ebay. I lost my record collection many years ago in a bit of a sad story. My son and I hit a few used record shops and got some new old records. I came home and put one on and my son said, "Dad I haven't seen you smile like that in a while". Man I miss that sound and a time when listening to music was an event not just background music. So yesterday I decided to turn my kids on to Frank Zappa and put Apostrophe on. My daughter ask me what the lyric "the crux of the biscuit, is the apostrophe" means. That led to the deepest conversation we have had about life since she was born. She is twelve. That is the power of music and the joy of parenthood! Thanks Frank! Oh yea, I blew the face off of my 23 year old drummer the next night when I made him listen to the drums in Saint Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast.

Ken, that is awesome!
I am actually blessed with two functional turntables and a third in a box.
Even more awesome that your kids got to hear the absolutely epic Apostrophe. Jack Bruce's distortion on the title track is one that I lust for. Seriously lust for, I always wonder what gear and what his signal chain was for that.

Mike- dang!
Stanley Turrentine, I used to have the vinyl Don't Mess with Mr. T., I need to search the basement . . . I lost a lot of records to a flood many years ago . . .
So many memories attached to this one:

I'm watching and listening to Phil Lesh play his new Alembic bass on the Lock'n Festival webcast. They just went into "Crazy Fingers."

Phil is obviously having a blast with his new instrument. To me, his tone is reminiscent of that '74 Lesh bass sound that I love so much.

Phil has a permagrin! Catch it if you can!

Got Jack Bruce's Silver Rails
There is a song on it, Drone that has distortion very similar to Apostrohe.
Good album.

Currently going back in time it hear to some of the music that influenced two of my favorite bands, the Allman Bros., and John Mayall. Last few days have listened to Lightning Hopkins, Robert Johnson, the Reverend Gary Davis, and Blind Willie McTell.

Pauldo. What did you think of Silver Rails?

Brian,
To be honest- initial listen through fell short of my expectations. Most notable was that Jack's voice sounds tired . . . I grew up admiring his bass skills but through time really found his voice to be captivating and strong. So to hear what I heard was concerning. With that, the bass playing is what I would call conservative.

As mentioned, Drone has a great bass tone and through out the disc there is some very tasty guitar and piano/ keys work.

Jack is moving through space and is aging like we all are, my expectations of Silver Rails to sound like How's Tricks? is not realistic.

As long as Jack makes music I will continue to buy it, he is a legend in bass, lyrics, piano and vocals.

Brian - saw your earlier post about Silver Rails and your shared feelings on Jack's voice sounding weak.

So with that in mind I dusted off:
Jack Bruce - How's Tricks?
also listened to:
Chrissie Hynde - Stockholm
David Gray - Mutineers

Both of those are 2014 releases - Chrissie's is good; David's is really good - he is another vocalist that I enjoy listening to.

Yes!! Quadrophenia, one of my all time favorite Rocking Rock Albums. Came across this not to long ago. The Ox! "The Real Me" isolated Bass track. Or at least as isolated as these guys could make it.

I used to listen to Quadrophenia a lot delivering newspapers on rainy days; it seemed the perfect soundtrack and Deep Cove(BC) had lots of them...may have actually been the album to get me playing bass, but regardless, it's an amazing album and probably the Who's best...Tony
