    Van the man - "Poetic Champions Compose" on absolutely mint vinyl. This is definitely a toss up between formats as far as sound goes.
    Both CD and LP were done very well.

    Last night I was listening to

    Yello-Stella Electronica at it's quirky best. Great production




    Yello began a flirtation with a mutant form of Brazilian and Latin music, incorporating their trademark otherworldliness and staunch rhythms on STELLA, but the interstellar samba is in full force on ONE SECOND. "La Habanera" is five minutes of Sun Ra meets Jaoa Gilberto in the rainforest jamming to Kraftwerk, while "Moon in Ice" is an atmospheric ballad of sorts, that predates electronica's new millennial obsession with frenzied Latin American grooves, taking Esquivel to new galactic heights. "The Rhythm Divine" finds Mssrs. Meier and Blank in torch-song mode; think Shirley Bassey backed by Martians. ONE SECOND is easily Yello's most accessible record, a good entree into their particularly warped universe. And for an extra kick, they include their synth-funk staple "Oh Yeah," in case you missed it the first time around.

    Yello-One Second

    And one that i've always seemed to overlook Rickie Lee Jones- "S/T" listening to it on vinyl tonight (and paying attention).
    Get past the overplayed (for those that remember) "Chuck E's in love" this chick is more than that. Think Dr. John mixed with early springsteen ( the good stuff) in a weird kinda way, extremely well polished production too boot.

    B.B. King-Blues on the Bayou

    One of his later albums that has some killer playing, back to basics

    B.B. King made his debut as producer with Blues on the Bayou, released in October 1998. He employs the most basic of ideas for this project: record an album of B.B. King tunes, with B.B. King's regular road band, under B.B. King's supervision. Keeping it loose, relaxed, and focused, King cut this album in four days down at a secluded studio in Louisiana and came up with one of his strongest, modern-day albums in many years. No duets, no special guests, just King and his road warrior band, playing his songs with him producing the results -- no overdubs, just simple, no-nonsense blues done like he would do them on-stage. The result is a no-frills, straight-ahead session that shows that King might be have been 73 at the time of this date, but he still had plenty of gas left in the tank. Tracks like "I'll Survive," and the jumping "Shake It Up and Go," "Darlin' What Happened," the minor keyed "Blues Boy Tune," the instrumental "Blues We Like," and the closing "If That's It I Quit" show him stretching out in a way he has seldom done in a studio environment, and the result is one of his best albums in recent memory.

    Otis Rush-So Many Roads (Live)

    Wow, what a great set. Recorded live in Japan on July 20 and 29, 1975. Rush is backed by Jimmy Johnson (rhythm guitar); Sylvester Boines (bass); Tyrone Centuray (drums). This shows why Otis Rush is one of the blues masters. All the greats learned from him, including Clapton and Page.

    There is a good deal of fascinating instrumental interplay, especially from Centuray and Boines. Still, there is little doubt that this is Rush's show. The southpaw's mastery of the fretboard is on full display as he tosses out tricks--fluid, vibrato-rich phrasing, crying and stinging high ends, sounds transformed with feedback and effects.

    Rush's passionate vocals and the notoriously intense building-and-falling architecture of his solos get ample breathing room on these cuts, and the inspiration he draws from his appreciative audience is clear. This set is especially recommended for guitarists, who will find a veritable treasure trove of licks to study throughout.

    EDIT: I should also add this is very open and dynamic recording. Extremely enjoyable to listen to. All the correct ambience cues are there as well as a solid bottom end. The recording really enhances the enjoyment of the set.

    Just the thing for Sunday AM brunch...

    Organ Works - George Richie on Cornerstone Church's Bediant Organ (Lincoln, Nebraska)
    Outstanding recording on the little known Titanic label.

    ZZ Top - Tejas

    Heard "Arrested For Driving While Blind" (track 2) today on XM's classic station and just had to drag this oldie out. Damn, but their old stuff is good. Much more bluesy than their later, more widely known releases.

    If you don't own their older stuff, Six Pack gives you their first six LP's on three disks. Very economical way to correct that situation.

    Tres Hombres is up next... Simply cannot spin ZZ without including their quintessential medley, "Waitin' for the Bus / Jesus just Left Chicago".
    More later,

    Sad to say that I've never seen them...

    I took quite an audio journey tonite. Diggin into the drawer that the Z's are in took me placs I had not been in a while. Namely:

    Music from the Soundtrack: Valley Girl and
    Music from the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Pump Up the Volume
    The former is early Nicholas Cage. The latter is early Christian Slater. Both movies are among my guilty pleasures. Nice mish mashes of tunes from groups that fit into one of three categories:
    • Ones I'll probably never buy a full CD of... The Pixies, Bad Brains with Henry Rollins, Liquid Jesus, Above the Law, Chagall Guevara, Sparks, Josie Cotton.
    • Ones I might nab someday like Peter Murphy (just love his Pump Up contribution, "I've Got a Secret Miniature Camera"), Concrete Blonde, Ivan Neville, Sonic Youth, Psychedelic Furs, The Plimsouls, Payola$.
    • Ones I have CD's from like Soundgarden, Cowboy Junkies, Pat Travers, Men at Work.
    Good fun listens with Pump Up being the stronger set... TALK HARD!

    Found an unopened copy of Neil Young's Mirror Ball that I spun next.
    I can't say I recognized a single track, but I plan to get to know this disk a lot better in the coming weeks. Good, electric Neil.

    After Neil I visited MJ's little sister, JJ... Rhythm Nation
    As is the case with her older bro, the SQ is top notch. And I like the tunes to boot. CD only produced a bout a half-dozen hits for her.

    Climbed out of the Z drawer to wrap up the nite with Sting's Fields of Gold: The Best of... 1984 - 1994
    Another high SQ redbook. Some cuts are kind of schmaltzy, but most work.
    More later,
    Tour...

    just played the repressing and what an album. If you can find it get the cd or lp new ,old or whatever. You may have listened to it before but sit back and explore it again.

    Have that Stevie on vinyl here, Dave.

    Tore into a bunch of cellophane here today (but not one PITA security seal)...

    I spent the late afternoon with Mr Eric Clapton. A trio of new SACD's, one of which is going to generate some karma in the very near future, arrived recently filling, what I now know was, a significant gap in my classic rock collection.

    After Layla I rushed out to my local watering hole to catch the end of happy hour, have a beer and visit a little. Five hours and a tad more than a beer later, I returned home on a mission. An ex-DJ bud (the good, radio station kind) had been feeding the jukebox and playing some fine blues by a fellow named Buddy Guy off an LP called Damn Right I've Got the Blues. Took me a moment, for some reason, but I ultimately remembered, "I own that." Thus the mission....

    Damn right, it's great stuff... Also very, very nice SQ. Easily the high point of the night... and for that matter, the day as well.




    Links in the pics will take you to AMG reviews with which I whole-heartedly agree. I'll just add that:
    • the SQ on the SACD's is uniformly great;
    • Layla still rules EC's discography; and
    • Damn, Right... is a must own release.
    A couple of others followed:
    Billy Joel's River of Dreams - A somewhat different-from-the-rest Billy Joel effort, although not as different as intended. Catchy and well recorded, if you're a Billy Joel fan, check it out.

    The Chambers Brothers' The Time has Come - Mixed bag here with about half covers that surprisingly don't work, and half original songs that just as surprisingly do work. And then there's the 9-minute "Time has Come"... If you are going to have only one hit, it might as well be as great as this one. Four mono bonus tracks round the disk out nicely. The SQ of this remastered issue is surprisingly good as well.

    Jethro Tull's Original Masters - While it's no substitute for the full Aqualung or Thick as a Brick, it's the best Tull hits collection* out there. SQ varies some from track to track, but pretty good overall.
    _______________________________________
    *WARNING: Avoid 20 Years of Jethro Tull like the plague! All the tracks you'd know were recorded live way after the band was past its prime.
    More later,
    Tour...

    I have a 3 disc retrospective of Taj Mahals's career, from 66 to 90 something. HE IS A BAAAD MAN! I remember a picture in a guitar book of Hendrix showing him something. He truly plays anything! He's still working today! To Google I go!!!!:D
