Listening to RAH May 26, 1966
Since we're now officially on page #666 and that today's news on Glenn Tipton's health aren't exactly uplifting, I have to play this one:
And since I see absolutely no reason to stop now:
First metal album I ever bought some 33 years ago. Was very disappointed at the time, but now I love it. Heavy but yet subtle with it.
The Baez cover is intense. Kinda funny covering a song written about the guy you actually lifted your band's name from.
Gene Clark Roadmaster
Evan Parker Sant’Anna Arresi Quintet
Filu’ E Ferru
Recorded live on 1/2/2015
Parker on tenor saxophone
Peter Evans on trumpet & piccolo trumpet
Alexander Hawkins on piano
John Edwards on double bass
Hamid Drake on drums
Worst or most confusing title/band name etc. and I’m still not sure of the label but the continuous hour set is sublime and unique for inclusion of Drake in an Evan Parker band / what happens is a wonderful free jazz record with a building groove and subtle power emerging in the music as the set progresses. Well worth seeking out.
I could never find it but I was thrilled that Hamid sent me a copy last year. Pretty special from all perspectives

This album is incredibly powerful, especially as presented on this Pure Pleasure edition. Much better than the original Candid CD issue from 89/90 which was a needle-drop, and not a very good one at that. It robbed this music of it's thrust and emotional engagement. A landmark for 1960....
Un-Grateful Trivia Puzzle: Connect this album to the GoGD.
I've come to love those first few Judas Priest albums, just as I have the first few Scorpions albums, more than their later releases.
Olatunji played with Mickey Hart
Jacobites Robespierre's Velvet Basement
Not just Mickey though.......
When I was younger (and perhaps even dumber), I thought the '70's albums of both those bands wasn't heavy enough. Little did I know that real heaviness didn't necessarily have to mean most BPM or densest sludginess ratio. Luckily I saw the error of my ways.
Wow, I need a copy of this! EP with Hamid Discogs sez it's not on any label. Insanely cool to get a copy from the 'Man'. Peter Evans plays so well with EP from the other performances I have heard. Always a welcome addition.
When those albums came out I was heavy into the Prog thing so I heard the best of both worlds in some of those albums. And that JP album had Simon Phillips on drums!
It comes in a fancy large digipak. If I can make you a bit more envious Hamid sent me a whole slew of fairly recent to brandy new recordings he played on at the same time. When he offered to send me something the first one I asked about was the above. He told me it was/is great to play with Evan as he likes to get him playing to the ‘groove’ which he certainly does here. After the set Hamid’s bigger than life laugh is heard clearly as the audience cheers fade to black....
The drumming here is just insane. The things he did here with the double bass drums would change the course of metal forever. Somewhat ironic that an 'outside' musician could do that but then again perhaps not.
Now on to some Sonny:
Followed by some of his acolytes:
OK, you have succeeded is making me even more envious. I'm changing my to a . That's incredibly cool, and yet sounds just like him. I was thinking immediately about him giving EP a groove to ride on at times and how that worked out. Smiling Forehead indeed.
Yeah man, good call on that. It does seem an odd pairing in ways but it certainly worked out. I was sitting at my desk one day and got a call, picked it up, and it was Simon. He was looking for assistance/consult in building some stuff for his home studio in CA. Of course I, being a drummer, was knocked out and am sure he could hear me buzzing on the other end. Incredibly cool and grounded guy who talked with me directly instead of having some assistant do his dirty woirk.
And I'm listening to some RA from 1966! ^^^^
Yeah, I have only heard good things about him from people I know who have met or dealt with him thru work. There can never be too many guys like that in this biz. And there never will either
