Title: In need of music suggestions
Post by: BAC on October 03, 2018, 05:36:16 PM
I listen to music a lot while at work (Spotify), but am getting bored with the albums I've downloaded.  So I'm looking for suggestions for new albums.  What are some of your favorites?  I'm partial to rock from the 60s to the 80s, but will take any suggestions.

Thanks!

I never heard of Whiskey Myers, but with a name like Whiskey I'm interested.

I love '70s & ''80s rock, '80s new wave, hard rock, heavy metal, some pop -- as long as it's not the no-talent music of today, alternative, electronic, jazz. Just about anything except country, rap, noise music, and anything they play in clubs. I buy a lot of CDs and tend to go for things that I don't hear on the radio. As soon as I heard Deborah Henson-Conant playing jazz on a harp I fell in love with her music. Albums 2-4 were really good IMO. Jean Luc-Ponty is a master of the electric violin and has dozens of jazz solo albums. He used to play with Frank Zappa and a lot of other people. I'm a big fan of Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and all the usual rock groups from that era. I'll take a look at some of the CDs I have here. Besides the bands others have mentioned you may want to try:

Asia
Atlanta Rhythm Section
Jeff Beck
Blind Faith -- the only album they ever made
The Byrds
Candlebox
Cracker
Robert Cray Band (blues) -- Strong Persuader
Cry Of Love
Days of The New, the first (orange) album, not the green or red
Deep Purple
Thomas Dolby
Peter Gabriel
Heavy Metal movie soundtrack -- the only cassette tape I ever wore out
INXS
Chris Isaak -- Heart Shaped World
Joe Jackson
Jackyl -- their first album
James Gang
Jethro Tull
Living Color -- Vivid
Madness
Manfred Mann's Earth Band
Meat Puppets -- Too High To Die. Never expect their lyrics to make any sense.
The Steve Miller Band
Molly Hatchet
The Moody Blues
Ted Nugent
Gary Numan -- The Pleasure Principle, and Telekon, if you can stand his voice. I like the viola parts.
Mike Oldfield -- Tubular Bells, 1973 album
The Alan Parsons Project
Power Station
The Pretenders
Queensryche -- Empire
Rainbow
Santana
Seal -- first 2 albums
Seven Mary Three
Silverchair -- Frogstomp, from when they were only 15 years old
Soft Cell
Soul Asylum
Soundgarden
Spinal Tap
Sponge -- Rotting Pinata
Steely Dan
Al Stewart
toad the wet sprocket -- fear
Traffic
Robin Trower
UFO
the verve pipe -- villains
Rick Wakeman
Whitesnake
Steve Winwood
Yardbirds
Yes
Neil Young

That should keep you busy for a while. I have over 500 CDs plus some tapes and vinyl if you'd like more suggestions.

And I have to mention the boys from Frankenmuth, one of the hottest bands around, Greta Van Fleet. The lead singer sounds a lot like Robert Plant.

I'm more of a Western music fan - NOT C&W and sure as heck not "Country", at least the modern stuff. People like Ian Tyson, Brenn Hill, Joni Harms, real cowboy singers (they are all working ranchers/farmers).

About the only thing I can suggest is Talking Heads, still like their Stop Making Sense album.

I have eclectic tastes... ;)

Nice... My tastes vary too..

Halestorm
Aaron Lewis
5 Finger Death Punch
Seldom Scene
Allison Krauss and Union Station
Chris Stapleton
Pentatonix.... old stuff while Avi was still with them. Not impressed with their choice of fill-ins.
Walk off the Earth
Johnny Cash
Styx
Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver
Dailey and Vincent

I've got a much longer list but you get the idea. Variety helps cure the boredom. My parents raised me on bluegrass and classic country, I found rebel country and hard rock along the way. I also like just about anything that produces GOOD harmony. There is not a lot of rap that I will listen to, but some of Kid Rock or Limp Bizkit works too.

Lately I spend a lot of time on my pandora feed for Aaron Lewis radio or I will listen to another station called Iron Horse radio.... think classic and current rock in bluegrass/country format.

How about Desert Island Discs? Choose eight recordings you would take if you were to be cast away on a desert island.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desert_Island_Discs

I've also heard about people making a list of 10 records they would like to take if stuck on a desert island. In no particular order I'd start with:

1. Pink Floyd -- Dark Side of the Moon
2. Black Sabbath -- Paranoid
3. Beethoven -- Symphony No. 9

Many of mine have been covered already by several folks (you guys have good taste  ;D ).

There's only one group and one single artist that I have every album they put out (and most DVD concerts) and that's Pink Floyd and SRV. I do have everything by the original Lynyrd Skynyrd but only some of the later albums from the 2.0 version.

If you like blues styled music, particularly SRV, his former bandmates (Double Trouble) made a couple of albums after his death with other lead guitarists and singers. One was Arc Angels featuring an old friend of Stevie's doing vocals and guitar.

Also in the same vein of music, check out Ian Moore, Storyville and Los Lonely Boys.

I don't listen to new "country"..... anything newer than Alan Jackson and George Straight don't cut it except for a few acts. I do like Jamey Johnson.

Wasn't Alan Jackson the guy who totally screwed up Mercury Blues by The Steve Miller Band?

Making songs of any other genre into country songs should be expressly prohibited by law. I heard one on the radio a while back on a station that plays mostly pop music. When I realized what rock song was underneath all that twang I was shocked. It was so bad the song was half over before I realized it was something I'd heard played properly many times before. I like some Charlie Daniel's Band songs and I have a Johnny Cash tape. That's about as country as I get.

Steve Miller, yes!

If you want to listen to 2 of his albums I suggest Fly Like an Eagle and Book of Dreams. Or else The Best of 1968–1973 and Greatest Hits 1974–78.

I don't think anyone mentioned Bob Seger yet. He only had 2 live albums, ‘Live’ Bullet and Nine Tonight, both with the Silver Bullet Band. They give you an idea what a live show of his was like back in his heyday. ‘Live’ Bullet was recorded at Cobo Hall in Detroit. Nine Tonight was recorded at Cobo Hall and at the Boston Garden. That was a decade before Like a Rock.

The Eagles - Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and Eagles Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 are good. They had several best of albums. I've really liked the five-part harmony on Seven Bridges Road from the moment I heard it. This is the same version that's on Eagles Greatest Hits Volume 2.

The world would be a really boring place if everyone liked all the same things. I'm a Joe Jackson fan but not everyone is. Most people have probably heard Is She Really Going Out with Him? but he did so much more. Here's a little sample. He had several new wave singles before he moved to more jazzy pop music. He had an album called Joe Jackson's Jumpin' Jive where he did a bunch of 1940s songs. That was good. And he did a version of Oh Well, first recorded by Fleetwood Mac in 1969, composed by vocalist and lead guitarist Peter Green.

Most all the songs on that album are great...the rest are only Very Good.

The copy I had was a near digital quality on a normal grooved LP..can't remember the name of the process.. 

I've been a "stereo buff" since I was in Germany in the mid to late 60s.

Note in Right Down the Line how the small sounds  are crisp and do not get muddies when overpowered by the louder bits.  This was a great song to use to test the quality of your system. 

There is a "harmonic" instrument bit...just lasts for seconds that still gives me chills...

The Alan Parsons Project would be a good place to find music from the '70s and '80s era. Alan Parsons worked at Abbey Road Studios. If you check your copy of The Dark Side of the Moon he's credited for engineering. Here are some of the more popular songs, but I like his instrumental works better. 10 of them are on the album The Instrumental Works.

This is also the song I mentally hear during the fast mountain drives in the movie "Thunder Road" with Robert Mitchum ....not the famos one were he is killed..but the earlier ones.

Such good suggestions.  A lot of the individual songs I already have in various playlists.  Some good albums I either did not know or had forgotten.  Many I had in high school.

My music tastes have changed somewhat since then.  For instance, I was the first of my friends to discover The Smiths when in college.  Tried listening to a couple of their CDs 15 years or so ago, and was appalled at myself for ever liking that.  "Shut up, you whiny son of a bitch!" I yelled as I ejected the CD (I may be paraphrasing).  Anyway, since they were all original releases, and some of them were out of print and/or limited releases, I was able to sell them all on ebay for a lot more than I paid for them in the '80s.

P.S.  I prefer "Alone Again" and "Too Hot to Handle" from UFO.

I wish that I hadn't ruined a lot of good vinyl records in the mid to late 60s with an inexpensive Sears "stereo" when I was in college... by the time I enlisted in 1970, and toured a lot of Japanese audio shops did I figure out what a good turn table and audio cartridge really was... names like Maxell and TDK tape were unknown to me, but I did copy a lot of free music....unfortunately no one repairs a Sansui Eight amp, Dual turntable, or TEAC 4010 tape deck  any more... :(
Title: Re: In need of music suggestions
Post by: Big Frank on October 09, 2018, 03:03:45 AM
Since I got a decent stereo system in the early '80s I've used TDK SA cassette tapes exclusively, with one exception. I have a single Maxell UD90 "normal" tape that I think I got from one of my roommates when I was stationed in Germany. I copied 3 songs each off single LPs of my roommates, all by different groups, starting with the 3 songs on Wish You Were Here that weren't parts I-IX of Shine On You Crazy Diamond.

The TDK Super Avilyn cobalt-adsorbed "chrome equivalent" Type II particle is better than the chromium dioxide used on "chrome" Type II tapes. And TDK SA tapes must be really good. They were used to align the heads of many different brands of cassette decks at the factories that built them. I bought mostly SA90 tapes because one LP nearly always fits on each side of a 90 minute tape. When CDs first came out they were the same length as the albums they came from, so one CD fit on each side of a 90 minute tape most of the time.

Before I had a CD player of my own I borrowed my younger brother's CD player and CDs. I copied a dozen of his CDs onto SA90 tapes in Limited Edition cases, 2 Jeff Beck, 6 Led Zeppelin, and 4 Pink Floyd, all recorded in Dolby C. The tapes sound just as good to me as the original CDs. I have one SA100 tape with Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds on it. Since  the double album is about 95 minutes long it wouldn't fit on an SA90 tape. I've since bought the 2 CD version. Ulla!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Wayne%27s_Musical_Version_of_The_War_of_the_Worlds

I have some SA90 blank tapes left and a few newer TDK CDpower 110 blank tapes. I just saw 5 "vintage" regular style SA90s like mine listed for $50 on ebay. The newer CDpower 110s are averaging about 5 bucks each. I still have a couple of SA90 Limited Edition tapes in the original shrink wrap. A single one is listed on ebay for $12.99, and 4 used tapes are $49.99! They came in a unique one-piece clam-shell case.

Uh. What?

I just looked it up on YouTube and put the letters "hq" after it. Like this, "chantays pipeline hq". A lot of videos have high quality versions of songs and videos. Some of them are remastered versions. But sometimes people post crappy quality and label it HQ. In that case I search the same thing without the "hq" and see what turns up. A lot of times I look online to see what album the song was on and find most of them on Wikipedia. Once I find what I'm looking for on YouTube I start the video and read Wikipedia while it plays. Sometimes if you look who posted the video it will say something like The Chantays - Topic or Blue Öyster Cult - Topic. I never even looked for that, but if you click on it, it goes to their page with more videos.

The best links are usually the ones with a picture of the album cover on the left with the name of the song, group, and album next to it. Like these 2 from Blue Oyster Cult. I think that's what you were talking about. The first one is a single from their first album from 1972. The second one is a #1 Mainstream Rock hit single from one of their Gold records that came out in 1981. I'm going with a theme for these two. Let me know if I helped or not.

If you want some metal in your diet you may want to try Megadeth. Dave Mustaine was the original lead guitarist for Metallica but not for long. Right before they recorded their first album in 1983 they kicked him out of the band because of his drug and alcohol abuse. Do you know how many drugs and how much alcohol you have to consume to get kicked out of a heavy metal or rock band?

So he started his own band. He's been the lead vocalist and played guitar from 1983 until the present, except for the one year Megadeth was broken up. He had nerve damage in his arm and couldn't play guitar. Megadeth must be doing alright. They've had 15 studio albums and Metallica has only had 10. And Megadeth has had 49 singles to Metallica's 39. Ha! Suck it Metallica. Although not necessarily my favorites, these are Megadeth's songs that made it to number 5 and 6 on the Mainstream Rock charts.

There's a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time for soft music, and a time for something hard. I like a variety of musical styles. As Monty Python used to say, "And Now for Something Completely Different." The last song I heard in my truck was Whirl-y-Reel 1 by Afro Celt Sound System. They mix traditional Irish and West African music with electronic music. When one guy sings in Irish I don't know what he's saying, but that's okay.

I had a 10-disc CD changer in my other truck and one time I had Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in it. If you skip the first 7 minutes of the video some of you should recognize the very end of it. Without realizing it until later, I had Megadeth's Countdown To Extinction CD with Symphony Of Destruction on it in the CD player the same time as Beethoven.

I think most of you remember Ricky Nelson, from The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet, having a string of hit songs from the '50s-'70s. Garden Party was his last Top 40 Hit in 1972. His twin sons Matthew and Gunnar Nelson started a band called Nelson in 1989. Their first album, After the Rain, came out in 1990 and they had a #1 hit with (Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection. And the title song hit #6. They still had an '80s sound and aren't likely to be on your "recently heard" list.

Oh, you shouldn't have done that. I'm always tempted to sing along to Flirtin' With Disaster doing my best Molly Hatchet impersonation. :o I had to stop the video before it was too late. Maybe I'll play Whiskey Man or Gator Country. Or better yet something by a different band just to be on the safe side. Maybe some Jethro Tull.

The only concert I attended was Operation Rock & Roll with my ex-sweetie at Pine Knob Music Theatre, now DTE Energy Music Theatre in Independence Township, outside of Clarkston, Michigan. Operation Rock & Roll was a 1991 concert tour featuring Judas Priest, Alice Cooper, Motörhead, Dangerous Toys and Metal Church.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Rock_%26_Roll

Alice Cooper put on an amazing show. At one point he was dragged into a movie, until he escaped and came out of the movie screen back onto the stage. Motörhead used to be called the loudest band in the world, and they damaged the Cleveland Variety Theater when they hit 130 decibels there. But at this show, Judas Priest was even louder than Motörhead. Rob Halford riding onto the stage on his Harley and revving it up didn't help matters. 27 years later my ears are still ringing. It was like being on a firing line without your hearing protection. I didn't know anything about Dangerous Toys or Metal Church, and still haven't heard much about them. I have a CD with a variety of metal bands with Metal Church on it.

Johnny Rivers.  I saw him on the Riverboat President back in the 80's.  He had a lot of good songs but didn't play the music company game.

The only Johnny Rivers song I can remember is Secret Agent Man. My older brother had a record with that on it. Devo made their own version of it, don't ask me why, and they changed the lyrics as well as the music.

Chris Isaak's single of Wicked Game had an instrumental version as the B side.

Cry Of Love only recorded 2 CDs. I have both of them. I had one of the songs from their first CD on my mind. It's the first video. The next 3 made it to #13, #2, and #1 on the Mainstream Rock charts. You may have heard those 3 on the radio. I like the whole CD. Sugarcane, from the second CD made it to #22 on the Mainstream Rock charts. I don't remember hearing that one on the radio.

I listened to a little bit of Butthole Surfers Electriclarryland CD in my truck today. I just found out the original album cover has been replaced by a picture of a prairie dog "due to the graphic image".

Pepper is the only song of theirs I remember hearing on the radio. It hit number 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, number 19 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, and number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart. I never saw the video until now and it's not as long as the song on the CD. Here are both versions. If you don't like this you won't like the rest of their music. It just gets stranger from here.

I never heard of Buckethead until one day I saw a video of his on YouTube. He's an amazing guitarist. I just looked at his discography on Wikipedia.

306 studio albums, 1 live album, 4 special releases, 1 extended play, 5 demo tapes, 3 solo DVD video releases, 2 DVD video releases with Cornbugs, 3 music videos, 3 unreleased albums, 3 solo videography releases, and 16 videography releases with other artists.

306 studio albums!!! He was on 15 movie soundtracks and besides the 2 dozen bands he's been part of, he's had guest appearances with about 3 dozen more bands. How have I not heard of him sooner? He can do a lot more that the shredding that he seems to be most famous for.

I'm not suggesting you listen to the CD I was today, but here's a song from the movie soundtrack by Wendy Carlos. It's hard to believe this is from 1971. Every song was recorded one note at a time because the early Moog synthesizers could only play one note at a time. Then it all had to be put together after it was recorded. Wendy Carlos gave Robert Moog feedback when he developed the Moog synthesizer and was one of his first customers, back she was Walter Carlos. Moog built them and Carlos played them.

She was the first person to record an album with a synthesizer, the main person responsible for making people aware of them in the first place, and for popularizing them. Another song on this album was the first recorded song featuring a vocoder for the singing, which people are still using. Besides A Clockwork Orange she also did the soundtracks for The Shining and Tron, and had a baker's dozen of other albums. Her first album in 1968 went Platinum and won 3 Grammy Awards. Not bad for a first album with an instrument no one else had ever made an album with. Another CD I have of hers was recorded without a single microphone. Every instrumental and vocal sound came out of a computer that her synthesizers were plugged into.

I sometimes buy movie soundtracks that have a variety of different musicians on them if I hear a song I like. That way I get to hear some songs I've heard before and some I haven't heard, often by groups that I haven't heard of. Today I finished Alice Cooper -- Welcome to My Nightmare while driving around and started listening to the Tales from the Crypt presents Demon Knight original soundtrack. It's mostly rock and heavy metal. It has Hey Man Nice Shot by Filter. It's about R. Budd Dwyer's public suicide at a press conference after he was convicted on bribery charges. The CD starts with a version of Cemetery Gates by Pantera. One song out of 10 really sucks IMO but opinions vary. Some people will hate all 10.

There was also a Tales from the Crypt presents Bordello of Blood movie. Most of the soundtrack was good. It had music ranging from Anthrax on the title song to From The Underworld by The Herd featuring Peter Frampton. I don't remember hearing that in 1968 when I was a kid, but let's face it, that's been a while. There are also a half dozen classic rock songs by the original artists, and a version of the Kiss song Deuce by Redd Kross, whoever they are.

On the Donny & Marie show back in the '70s, Donny Osmond did a version of Edgar Winter's Frankenstein. Skip ahead to 4:40 if you want to see it. I saw this when I was a kid and thought it was cool with the sparks flying and everything. Now it's just corny and bad. I thought it was the whole song too and not just half of it.

I may have already posted this somewhere on the forum. If so, here it is again. The J. Geils Band -- "Live" Full House. The poker hand on the album cover is only 3 of a kind, but they played to a full house whenever they went to Detroit. It was the first of three live albums and was recorded in Detroit. The second was recorded in Detroit, and in Boston where they're from. The last one was recorded at Pine Knob in Clarkston, Michigan, in between Detroit and my house.

I thought about posting a few songs by bands from Michigan and when I looked to see some I may not have already known about, I wasn't expecting to find well over 1,000 bands in Michigan listed and linked to their websites. :o

If you search for rock bands, or just bands, from -- and put your state in there will be a Wikipedia page about some of them among the results. Here are some you should have heard at one time or another. The Verve Pipe's song The Freshmen was a bigger hit (#1) than Photograph (#6) but I wanted to hear Photograph.

Here's another Michigan band. Rare Earth was the first big hit-making act signed by Motown that consisted only of white members. The band was one of the first acts signed to a new Motown imprint that would be dedicated to white rock acts. The record company did not have a name for the new label yet and the band jokingly suggested Motown call the label "Rare Earth". To the band's surprise, Motown decided to do just that. Some of these songs have longer versions 10 minutes-21 minutes long, but these are the shorter versions that fit on the millions of 45 RPM records they sold. There are also videos on YouTube of them performing live.

I forgot to post earlier that I saw a CD for sale called Best Of Southern Rock.

There are only 10 songs on the CD and one of them is Smokin' In the Boy's Room by Brownsville Station, a Michigan band from Ann Arbor. That's only a 55 minute drive for me, but it is south of here. ::) Cub Koda, the lead singer, guitarist, harmonica player, co-writer, and all-around wild-man, was a native of Detroit. He previously formed several bands when he was at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, a literal pain in the butt 7 hour drive from Detroit, and definitely not in the south. The only thing Marquette is south of is Lake Superior and not by very much. You can probably see the lake, to the east if not the north, from the university campus.

Another song is Slow Ride by Foghat from London, England, United Kingdom. They didn't sound like southerners to me and I never thought of them as a southern rock band. Another song is Dixie Chicken by Little Feat from Los Angeles, California. You could say they sometimes played a southern rock style, like Creedence Clearwater Revival from El Cerrito, California in the San Francisco Bay Area did. So with only 7 songs from southern bands, and one band from a completely different continent, I wouldn't call this the definitive Southern Rock collection. Ed King, writer of Born To Run, was a guitarist for psychedelic rock band Strawberry Alarm Clock from Los Angeles, California, and guitarist and bassist for Lynyrd Skynyrd from 1972 to 1975 and again from 1987 to 1996, so that makes it a southern rock song.

Track Listing

 1. Born To Run - Lynyrd Skynyrd
 2. Slow Ride (Single Version) - Foghat
 3. Jim Dandy - Black Oak Arkansas
 4. Dixie Chicken - Little Feat
 5. Bring Down The Hammer - Georgia Satellites
 6. Smokin' In the Boy's Room - Brownsville Station
 7. Brickyard Road l - Johnny Van Zant
 8. Queen Of Memphis - Confederate Railroad
 9. Highway Song (Single Version) - Blackfoot
10. Mississippi Moon Dog - Molly Hatchet

I just got done listening to the Stranger in Town album by Bob Seger. It came out in 1978 and was certified not just gold, but platinum, less than a month later. It eventually went 6× Platinum and all 4 singles ended up on one of his greatest hits albums. Greatest Hits was certified Diamond (over 10,000,000 copies sold) by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) last year.

You may be familiar with Seal's #1 hit song Kiss from a Rose. It was one of 4 singles from his second album to make the charts, and it was on the Batman Forever soundtrack. He also had 3 singles that charted on his first album. Here they are. Crazy is one of those songs I like to crank up loud when I'm driving. The Beginning is a dance song. Killer charted on the Billboard Hot 100 (barely) and Billboard Dance Club Songs.

Weird Al just got another Grammy nomination. This one is “Best Boxed or Special Limited Edition Package” for Squeeze Box: The Complete Works of "Weird Al" Yankovic. It's a 15-album box set that looks like an accordion and hit #1 on the Billboard Top Comedy Albums charts last year.

https://imgur.com/gallery/N7kLM

Weird Al guitarist Jim Kimo West's album Moku Maluhia – Peaceful Island was nominated for a Grammy for Best New Age Album. It's his 12th solo album. He plays Hawaiian slack key guitar and did a couple of Christmas albums too. I like a little slack key now and then, and it's about time for some Christmas music.

I thought it was rich that he came back as a guest and snarked that a post about coffee filters being non-gun related when he himself started one on music suggestions.

I wasn't paying attention to who started the thread. Pharisaical* much, BAC?

I've had the song Voice of Eujena on my mind a lot the last few days. Of the 8 singles Brother Cane released from the only 3 albums they ever made, this was their lowest ranking song at number 30 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart. Not too bad for being their worst single.

This Donnie Iris song popped into my head for no apparent reason, like most songs do, yesterday or the day before and I kept forgetting to post it. The official video for it is on YouTube too but it's a lowly 240p quality.

These are the 3 singles from On Through the Night, Def Leppard's 1980 debut album. This was the first of 5 consecutive Platinum albums immediately followed by 2 Gold records. Drummer Rick Allen's left arm was severed by a car accident in between the 3rd and 4th albums. He came up with the StickRick character and "Life Is Great!! Be A Rockstar!!" slogan for his One Hand Drum Company. Proceeds from the sale of merchandise go to support the Raven Drum Foundation charity he and his wife started.

Last month I heard a Bob Seger song on the radio. I remember the DJ saying, there's one you don't hear too often, but I can't remember what song it was. So here's a song that hit #1 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. From the 1982 double Platinum album, The Distance. I have no idea if this is the song I heard but it's been on my mind lately.

I am envious of you guys... once upon a time (70-73) I acquired a pretty good sound system that fell into the allowable shipping weight of the DOD... Dual turntable, TEAC reel to reel, Sansui 65w per channel amp and Pioneer speakers...and the barracks had a sharing rule, once someone got a new album and recorded it, it was free for anyone else to copy... but since then, and with my worsening hearing loss, listen instead to conservative talk radio when in the car... (which most likely jacks up my blood pressure)

I have some cassette copies I made of my roommates' LPs but I never listen to them. And I still have the Pioneer speakers I bought while stationed in Germany in the early '80s. The woofers had to be replaced because of woofer rot. They lost some of their 63 pounds each weight because the new 12" woofers don't have the HUGE magnets the slightly smaller 30cm woofers had. These bookshelf speakers are sitting on top of my Paradigm floor-standing speakers. These aren't the kind Paradign speakers that cost $35,000 a pair  :o  but they sound good enough to me. I listen to all of my music on the computer or in my truck now anyway.

I don't have a favorite song but I'm listening to Mozart - Eine Kleine Nachtmusik right now. I don't know if I posted it before or not but I've always liked it.

I think I mentioned Rick Wakeman's 1974 album Journey to the Centre of the Earth before but don't remember if I posted a link. He played 11 different synthesizers and keyboards on the album, often 2 at a time. He had 105 solo albums and albums with his son Adam, in addition to the 25 Yes albums he was on, plus 31 more with other bands he was in, and guest appearances on 20 other albums, plus he had a couple of singles.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YJ9W2pZwvlY

25 years later, in 1999, he came out with a sequel called Return to the Centre of the Earth. All of the odd-numbered tracks are narrated by Patrick Stewart. All of the even-numbered tracks are songs. Years ago I listened to the whole CD, then programed my CD player to play the odd-numbered tracks only, and then the even-numbered tracks only. I've only listened to all of it since then. Other musicians include Justin Hayward from The Moody Blues, Katrina Leskanich from Katrina and the Waves, Ozzy Osbourne, and Bonnie Tyler.

One of my favorites...  Sort of "Country Rap" rather than singing...but, opposed to other Rap, it is still "musical" with rhyming lyrics...

P.S.  Twice, around 2000, I was asked in a bar if I was Charlie Daniels.   Would have taken it as a compliment if I had been playing a guitar and singing.   ;) ;) ;)

My suggestion is to listen to The Who. That's what I did after reading about this incident that took place when drummer Keith Moon spent his 21st birthday at the Holiday Inn, Flint, Michigan after a concert. The hotel is about a 4 mile drive from my house and I never knew the history of it when I passed by. I'm even closer to Atwood Stadium where the concert was, 2.5 miles to the entrance, and didn't have any idea what went on there in the '60s. I had a free ticket to a Flint City Bucks soccer game there Wednesday but didn't go. I would have only seen them lose 1-2 against Dayton Dutch Lions, and I'm not a fan anyway. Here's the video that was missing from the article in the link below.

A few weeks ago I was listening to internet radio from other countries, mostly in Europe. Some had nothing but songs sung in their native language, and some had songs by the original artists, not local remakes. I ended up on a good station in Poland playing classic rock when I heard Doctor Doctor by UFO. I haven't heard that since I played their greatest hits CD.

I heard Go Now recently and had to post it. What a difference the change in vocalists can have on a band. Here's it is from The Moody Blues first album, The Magnificent Moodies, 1965, with guitarist Denny Laine on vocals. And a non-album single also from 1965, Time Is On My Side. Then 2 songs from their next album in 1967 with Justin Hayward.

You're welcome, Solus. I was upset when my cassette player ate In Search of the Lost Chord, and before that the tape broke on On the Threshold of a Dream. I still have Seventh Sojourn and Sur la Mer on cassette. The only things I have on CD are Days of Future Passed and The Story Of The Moody Blues... Legend Of A Band.

I play CDs when I drive, and when I'm at home I can listen to YouTube and Spotify, plus thousands of radio stations all over the world.

Firefox has an add-on I haven't tried yet. "Worldwide Radio is more than 30,000 radio stations from around the world: USA, Russia, Poland, Ukraine, Belgium, Spain, Australia, Brazil, France, Italy, Canada, Mexico, Holland, etc."

When I have time to listen to music but not enough time to watch a TV show I go here. "Music from 28,514 radio stations. Tune in to thousands of internet radio stations live right now!"

https://www.internet-radio.com/

Or here. https://www.iheart.com/

Plus I've been listening to a Spotify (free) channel playing their pick of the top 100 prog-rock songs. That's usually just while I unpack groceries or work on guns or something by the computer. This is on my newest Moody Blues cassette from 1988.

Last night there was one particular song I wanted to hear on YouTube. Hours later when I quit listening it was after sunrise. :-[ One of the songs I heard was from this concert and when I heard the vocals I was stunned. I haven't listened to the whole thing yet but I plan to. There's more about them at Wikipedia. Heilung is an experimental neofolk-rock band with members from Denmark, Germany and Norway. Their music is based on texts from artifacts of the Iron Age originated by the Northern European peoples of the Celtic and Viking Age. The languages used are varied, with German, English, Gothic, Latin, Proto Norse and Viking age Old Norse being used. Heilung means healing in English.

I listened to a song on YouTube that someone mentioned on a TV show, and when it was over I played this song that was listed to the right of it. Basement Jaxx is an English electronic music duo, but one guy did nothing on this whole album but produce. 8 seconds into the song I knew whose music they stole, because I've heard M.E. by Gary Numan so many times. Wikipedia says they also used part of This Wreckage by Gary Numan, but they didn't mention it on the page about the album.

I was listening to One-Hit Wonders on Spotify earlier. I like that channel. They played some songs I didn't have to look to see who it was, like Spirit in the Sky by Norman Greenbaum, and some songs I don't remember ever hearing. They played Steady, As She Goes, by The Raconteurs, which I've heard a few times but didn't know who it was. Wikipedia says The Raconteurs is an American rock band from Detroit, Michigan, based in Nashville, Tennessee, and the lead singer is Jack White from The White Stripes. Here are 2 different music videos for Steady, As She Goes.

I'm in my mid-late 50s and finally got my first cell phone. I'm not an "early adopter" who always has the newest of... anything, really. Looking through all the options on my phone I see where I can upload a ringtone. One of my friends has been doing that for years, but I found out I can make my own instead of downloading them like my friend did. I can record up to 40 seconds and was thinking about using the beginning of Pink Floyd's Time, or where the tubular bells start on Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells album. The whole album is just the song Tubular Bells divided into Part 1 and Part 2. He recorded 14 tracks or however many it took of him playing every instrument on the album by himself, and laid them down one after another until all the instruments were playing at the same time. This was really sophisticated work for a 19-year old back in 1973 when they only had 4-track recorders to work with. It's hard to believe how well these 2 47-year old albums stood up over the years. The tubular bells come into play about 22:50-22:55, and it's the finale of Part 1. If I  make one of these my ringtone, I'll see if I can use it for my alarm.
