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.

I guess we're even then..... I've never really cared for The Steve Miller Band.   ;D  ;D

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.

Good one Solus. And let's not forget Baker Street off the same album.

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...

Half-speed mastering?


I have a UFO CD called The Essential UFO, with all their greatest hits. Or greatest hit. I recently heard this one on The House of Hair with Dee Snider.

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.
