Thank you, that was really nice! I'm gonna have to look for her...I don't listen to that type of music that often, but enjoy when I do; old bandmates were weirded out by my thing for power pop...I wish I could do that music but all my music comes out sludge/groove, crunchy and slightly evil or creepy...don't get me wrong, I love what I make but I just haven't got the wiring to make a love song or a pretty song...oh well...Tony

P.S. sea of bees got me right off track; I was listening to NOMEANSNO '0+2=1' one of my faves...

Double post.

But my guess is that I'll probably be listening to something else soon.

I've posted links to some Cyril Morin tunes before, and here's another one. Probably not everyone's cup of tea; but I think this is stunningly beautiful. The Mind

The instrumentation is sparse; minimum but very effective percussion, and keyboards that paint a soundscape. These support a voice and vocal line that are treated with a carefully contoured reverb. The line itself is well crafted and skillfully sung.

I've listened to it before, but just now listened several times in a row. Stunning.

That video of Rob and John is neat; they're so young! Rob used the same bass for SO long...I saw it soon before he retired it at the shop I used to work at; the pickguard was brass, held on with duct tape as the screw holes were done; filled with dowels that were themselves done repeatedly...the finish on body and neck was falling off in chunks...it looked awesome but it was clearly past the point where you would rely on it on tour; I don't know if he still uses it for recording. Tom Holliston their guitar player lives 8 blocks from me so I can usually tell when they're on tour or not...Tony

Fleetwood Mac - "The Dance" DVD (1997)

Watched the whole thing again... McVie was playing a neck-through Michael Tobias, and a couple Rick Turner basses all night.

I have to say my preference is for Bob's original on his 'another side of Bob Dylan' album - also featuring 'Motorpsycho nightmare' which is one of my favourite songs of all time. I believe I can just about remember all the lyrics despite not having listened to it for a good few years. Might be the subject of my next 'What are you listening to' post although I've just been sent a setlit for a band I'm considering and there's not too many familiar songs on it so I'm going to be woodshedding for the next few days.

Dire Straits - "Brothers in Arms", a classic from my high school years. (Dang, has it *really* been 29 years since this came out?!)

Anyway, I always loved John Illsley's smooth, supporting style of bass playing... uncannily like John McVie's. Listen to the similarities between "Sultans of Swing" and "Go Your Own Way".

Last two days in the truck - Brand X Product - some of the best fretless bass and drum jamming around. My favorite work by Percy Jones and Mike Clark on drums.

And right now - Wayne Krantz (played with Steely Dan) His new Good Piranaha, Bad Piranaha is pretty cool. Plus I'm going to see his trio next month here in Nashville.

And David Pastorious and Local 518. Check them out!

Mike Stern's 'Time In Place'.

I had a bunch of tunes on a cassette tape for over 20 years and never knew what any of the tracks were.I'd labelled it 'Mystery Fusion Stuff' and I was scared to play it in case it got chewed up,and figured I'd never find out what any of the cuts were.Thanks to the Shazam app I've been able to identify most of them after all this time.Along with Frank Gambale's 'Legends' and 'The Tardis',this is a real highlight.

So I paused the rehearsal recording I was listening to so I could hear the Mike Stern song (I still can't get over how he is now to how fat he was with Miles..) anyway, just went back to rehearsal recording as I type this and it's kinda like going from a nice hotel wedding party to getting drunk with the dumpster divers out back scrounging the leftovers...I think I will always be closer to the dumpsters, which is funny as I am a goldsmith by training and work in a pawnshop so I have more gold go through my hands than most people see in a lifetime; damn I LOSE diamonds in my workshop, but tiny ones worth a few bucks each...still...anyway if anyone cares to listen, they'res some Rumsfeld tunes at reverbnation.com/rumsfeld and I don't know if they're the good recordings of the songs or not as I haven't checked in awhile; my drummer does that stuff...Tony.

I'm a big fan of 'Live from Daryl's House'. One of the episodes, he had Booker T. Jones guesting, and Daryl reached back for this gem:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVt3I-HupRE

. . . . Eddie Floyd's 'Never Found a Girl', which Booker T co-wrote and produced the side back in the day when Stax was a powerhouse. Can't argue with him, one of my favorite tunes as well, and rockets me right back into the heyday of Soul music, somewhere I'm very happy.

Daryl's a great 'white soul singer', and without the baggage that usually drags with it, and a great student of his hometown Philly-style and all the rest. I really dug the episodes with Smokey and Shelby Lynne, and Joe Walsh and Billy G turned in good days as well.

Nice video Joey. I've seen a number of great jams on Live From Daryl's House; two of my favorites were the ones they did with Todd Rundgren. Most of the good stuff is no longer up on Daryl's site; but thanks to you, I've found that some is up on youtube. Here's I Saw The Light, shot at Todd's house.

Thanks for that, I did not know about Daryl's house; I will explore it now; so much good stuff!...the Todd Rundgren song has a very different feel from the rest as it's in a different place; must be amazing to ask Booker T and Billy Gibbons, etc. to come over to your place to play some tunes with your band...Tony

Daryl's House is great fun. Super band.

On a different note; my wife and I saw Birdman yesterday,
The score for the movie is AWESOME,

I was going to reveal it, but I think it is best served unannounced. If you have the time and don't mind spending a few bucks for a movie, you should see Birdman. As I was watching I kept getting caught up in the score - saying, I got to know who this is.

If you don't want to see the movie then do a web search of "Birdman score".

"Death Don't Have No Mercy", 10-9-1989 Hampton, Va.

I saw Phil & Friends do it at the "1967" show a week ago Friday and it's been in my head ever since. I'll be jamming with Wolf and some other guys this afternoon ... think I'll introduce it to the group.

Bill, tgo

Since Paul doesn't want to reveal the score, don't follow this link. So Paul, is this it?

Dave, that is indeed the soundtrack.
However the 'score' played throughout the movie was done by Antonio Sanchez - and THAT is what is so very captivating, punctuating and appropriate for the action on screen.

Just returned from a roadtrip trip to Boone/Blowing Rock, North Carolina, where I did a couple gigs with my 2nd cousin. The Persuader can cut a Country Blues-Ragtime gig too!

Anyway, had a couple hundred miles to myself in the car, and listened to the (mostly forgotten) 1995 Fleetwood Mac album, "Time". The band personnel at the time was Mick Fleetwood, John, & Christine McVie, with Dave Mason and Billy Burnette on guitars, and Bekka Bramlett as vocalist. I liked the whole album, but Mick's haunting narrative on the last track, "These Strange Times" presumably a tribute to Peter Green, really stuck with me as I climbed up Fancy Gap on I-77N back into Virginia.

Full album: http://youtu.be/FUu0WOxPlsw
