    Found this the other day. Santana had some energy in the early days. You got an hour to kill and like Santana, this is it

    Margo Price - Midwest Farmer's Daughter

    She's not original, but she is very good. And as far as the current vein of the Nashville sound, she's an outlaw.

    I agree. And yeah, it's hard to fathom they're underrated but I'd be hard pressed to find bands in the last 20 years who name drop the Stones as an influence other than The White Stripes.

    I love Howlin' Wolf and Robert Johnson and dare I say for 4 albums the Stones stood shoulder to shoulder with those legends.

    And Charlie Watts. To each their own but I think Watts' drumming is spectacular, especially on Exile. Without Watts and Ringo I wonder how rock drumming would sound today.

    Was in a coffee shop today, and heard Avril Lavigne. And I thought... "she wasn't terrible after all."

    Re: USCHO Music Thread 4: Songs She Sang to Me, Songs She Brang to Me

    Pink Floyd - 6/18/75 Boston

    Early versions of a couple of songs from Animals to open the show and then Shine On>Have a Cigar>Shine On to close out the first set.

    This is a nice audience recording - quite nice. The fun part is hearing a few of the people sitting near the recorder talk before each set, probably not knowing that a recorder is near them... forever preserving a little vignette of this June night in 1975. I don't know why I find that to be so cool, but I do.

    Two things if I can put my finger on it... something random is preserved. A little snippet of life that would have disappeared into the ether. Also - I'm not just listening to a concert, I'm in a seat. A very specific seat surrounded by people I don't know - yet specific individuals - and sharing a part of an experience that they had 42 years ago.

    Deeeeep.....

    Before the first set, joints are mentioned.

    Before the second set, clearly there is something staged going on before the band starts DSOTM and the arena is cheering and I can hear people saying "What is that?" "Is that a train?" Louder cheering and then "Wows!" and "No ways!"

    Wish I had a clue what they were looking at.


    Second set is DSOTM.

    Ha ha... after On the Run, joyous laughing and "This is SO good!" "Nice!" "Nice!" more joyous laughing.

    Banter can be annoying and distracting on these recordings but in this case, it's not right into the mic and it's people enjoying the show, not talking about random other BS or how wasted they are. Also and most importantly, can't hear them during the music.

    Loving this as I plod through the final hours of the work week...

    Oh and what is on now?

    Time

    Of course.

    Re: USCHO Music Thread 4: Songs She Sang to Me, Songs She Brang to Me

    Maybe 10-12 years ago I was sitting in a bar someplace in or around Boston and struck up a conversation with a guy a few stools down who, as it happened, was a music professor at BU or BC or some other Boston area school that probably also has equally distasteful, albeit lesser known, hockey fans. It was a bar. I had my drinking shoes on. So as far as details go, primarily I only recall his long but familiar lamentation regarding the then current popular music and the lack of quality musicianship therein. While there are of course many exceptions, I find the landscape of pop hasn't improved greatly since then in this regard and in fact it is possible it has declined. This is probably an ancient lament, but still...

    With the passing of Walter Becker of Steely Dan I'm reminded today of how I first became aware, and even appreciative at a very young age of musical virtuosity in popular music. This song, which was endlessly repeated on FM in my early youth, was the first one that I recall leading me toward becoming aware there was indeed, so much more to music than just a catchy melody and a killer pop hook. That perhaps having a good beat and being easy to dance to and giving it an 8 wasn't all there was? There were in fact jazz stylings, and swing and bluegrass and classical and marimba and tejano and zydeco and on and on... I began to discover and appreciate many brilliant musicians, who's music perhaps I didn't even particularly even care for, but were amazing just the same. Steely Dan (among many other bands) played a big part in opening up a world of music to me. Going to dust off my Aja vinyl and give it a spin. Thanks Walter.

    Re: USCHO Music Thread 4: Songs She Sang to Me, Songs She Brang to Me

    I love how in that performance, they don't even try to replicate the amazing solo done by Elliot Randall on the record. One, because it's an iconic solo created by an immensely talented guitar player, and it would be sort of blasphemy for the other guys to just mimic something he came up with, and two, because they had good enough players in the band also that they could create something different without having to blandly copy the studio recording.

    That's what good live bands can do.
    Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

    Greg Allmans Southern Blood, eerie, it has stayed in my truck CD player for 2 days now. Different sound, horns, Piano (instead of B3). He hopes his music haunts us when he is gone, it does me. His cover of Going, Going Gone got me.
