Yesterday was flash back Friday at work. Had a little Crimson-palooza.
King Crimson - Three of a Perfect Pair followed by The Night Watch.

Both line ups have their merit. I prefer Wetton's vocal work.

How is the Daltrey one? It his latest yes?

At dinner tonight, a friend recommended the album, Illuminations, by Carlos Santana and Alice Coltrane; so that's what I'm listening to now. I had never heard it before.

Paul, it is the album which just came out a month or so ago. Daltrey is in great form, but singing Wilko's songs allows him a different style than Who songs. As a long-time fan of Dr. Feelgood (and Wilko Johnson), it was initially a bit weird to hear Daltrey's voice on well known material instead of Lee Brilleaux, but within a few songs I was hooked. Of course, there is Wilko. It is in heavy rotation.

And yes, Gatton was amazing. The session with Robert Gordon is also a great album, especially for an unplanned recording.

I just love this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wShmbjqP3WU

Nancy does a great second vocal (Maggie Bell's lines from the original), Ann is in typically fine voice, and their FOH guy is really on his toes catching the echo'd single repeats on Ann's vocals towards the end. If they'd done 'Going to California' right after this, it would have been beyond fine . . . . I just love those two, and why oh why doesn't Nance have a Little Darling ? ?

"Gatton could play."

Heard John Sebastian on NPR last week say that "Nashville Cats" was inspired during his first trip to that fair city when he went into some place and was blown away by the band, featuribg a teen-aged Danny Gatton.

IN reference to " Nashville Cats"; I was working for Bill Graham @
"Day On The Green" , Sunday May 28, 1978 .
The line up was: The Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt,Elvin Bishop,
Dolly Parton , Norton Buffalo_____

Well, what more can I say ____,Dolly Partons band was beyond incredible ! I would think that her band consisted of____ " Nashville Cats " !

The Beach Boys never really seem to get off the ground for some reason to my perception at that particular show in comparison to the amazing instrumentalists in Dolly Partons band in my opinion and ears. The Beach Boys had top billing at that show ____

Last night I was watching The Who Live at Kilburn from 1977. Some shots of Entwistle playing his Alembic Exploiter. Then I switched channels to a recent video of The Who* playing Quadrophenia. MUCH older, kind of scary. But all of a sudden they started showing some stills and up comes an old shot of John playing the Alembic Exploiter.

Bill, tgo

*(Actually Townshend and Daltrey and a bunch of other guys. Without Moon and Entwistle, it ain't really "The Who", IMHO)

Peter that's a good one.

Eventually, non-stop K.G. just became too much. That was ALL that they were playing. Four plus hours of non-stop Kenny G. Honestly, I wasn't sure whether they were playing different songs that all sounded alike or just one song over and over and over.

Luckily, I was able to convince my wife who was with me that my putting in my earphones and dialing in some real music on my iPod was not an attempt to dial her out, but rather necessary for my sanity. Either that or she just got tired of me complaining.

Eventually we got home to Minneapolis at 2:30 AM this morning.

I had a similar experience calling ADT security systems - they had me on hold and looped the same crappy song over and over and over and over . . . I had to hold the phone away from my ear. When someone finally picked up, after taking care of business, they asked if there was anything else that I needed - I told them that it was cruel and unusual punishment to subject their customers to that music.

Back on topic - listened to that legendary Canadian band Max Webster - Universal Juveniles; it has this gem on it:

Non stop Kenny G, and then they wonder why bad things happen at airports...I can see myself resorting to cannibalism in that situation, just so the screams could drown him out...that Max Webster/Rush collaboration was cool; I've never heard it before...only once have I been on permahold and not minded;the lineup was things like Roy Orbison, Everly brothers, Patsy Cline...I actually thanked the person when I was done for their hold music choices; it should be completely evident that if you gotta put people on hold, play GOOD music and they won't try to tear your head off through the phone when they are finally attended to...Tony...Oh, last night was the new solo King Buzzo (Melvins) album 'this machine kills artists'...acoustic Melvins essentially...

Not sure whether it's the incoming Summer Solstice or the Honey Moon, but I got the call from Hoops McCann, so my annual Donald and Walter mania has begun, it's Perfection and Grace, the smile on my face. I AM going back to My Old School !

-Citizen Steely Dan (the compilation)
-Alive in America (with 'Josie' now transposed down to D, a high fastball 'Bhoddisatva' with Dennis Chambers on drums, a sublime live 'Aja')
-Two Against Nature
-Everything Must Go

Donald's . . . .

-The NightFly (my favorite cover of 'Ruby,Ruby' with Michael Omartian's piano solo and Abraham Laboriel's bass lines)
-Kamakirriad
-The New York Rock and Soul Review (with my favorite versions of 'Pretzel Logic' and 'Chain Lightning': who knew they were nuts for The Rascals?)
-Sunken Condos

and Walter's . . .

-Eleven Tracks of Whack (it's whacked, alright . . .)
-Circus Money

I'm constantly dumbfounded at how well Walter covers bass and guitar, and even more dumbfounded no one ever mentions this. See if YOU can play both of his parts on 'Gaslighting Abbie' !

THIS oughta keep me busy for a while. Guess I'll take my big black cow and get outa here . . .

Pete Seeger's "Turn! Turn! Turn! (to Everything There Is a Season)" played by the officiating minister at my 84 year old father's funeral service on Saturday. Had absolutely no idea until then that most of the lyrics,are adapted word-for-word from Chapter 3 of the Book of Ecclesiastes.

Thanks guys.

The passing of my Dad was pretty much expected as he was 85 and in poor health. As these things go, it probably went as well as it could. I got to spend 4 days with him awake and alert after he was rushed to the hospital in what we were told was a comatose state from which he it unlikely he would awake. He got to see all of his kids, grand kids, and his great granddaughter (my first grandchild) and speak with them while he was still with us. His passing away peacefully while he slept was the easy part. Its the family squabbling over what he left that makes me glad I'm here in Minnesota while most of the family is in Connecticut.

It's good you got a chance to spend time with him at the end...I'm glad I got to with my Mom at the end; I think she was relieved that it was all over. Life had been a mess for her for a long time so I think in a weird way she was kinda glad...Alas for me there was a bunch of stuff I wanted to get the truth on (she wasn't very good at that) that I just didn't ask about to keep her peace, so now I'll never know...oh well...Tony.

Jack Bruce: Silver Rails & Ratdog: Live at the Northrup 6/13/14

Jacks voice has gotten a bit thin but the guy can still play.

Listening to the recorded version of the Bob Weir and Ratdog Concert I saw last Friday evening at the newly renovated Northrup Auditorium in Minneapolis, MN. First time a recorded version of a concert has had a lot better sound than I heard live. Live, the bass was mush and the vocals at time unable to be understood. On the recording, you can actually hear individual notes.

Been a long week, needed something heavier . . .
Audioslave - Audioslave
Audioslave - Out of Exile
Medicine Wheel - Anuresis

The later is a friends old band, recorded in Milwaukee circa 1997.

The former , I had never listened to before . . 'supergroup' with Chris Cornell and Rage Against the Machine guys - it rocks!

Fu Manchu 'Gigantoid' yup, sounds like them; seriously all their albums sound alike, except 'California Crossing' which has less fuzz...and Boris 'Noise' A band almost on the other end of the scale who change it up quite a lot; there's always some heavy in there but they can be so delicate and beautiful at the same time...I dunno, maybe like a tank driving through a field of poppies?...anyway, somehow Japan can spawn bands that can actually create and walk that tightrope...Tony
