    Angular banjo sounds good to me.

    I had to listen to VH's "House Of Pain" for the 1984 thread. All the original VH albums are short, so those threads are like happy parties that end too quickly.

    I just put this on:

    Marc Benno's first three solo records. A friend of mine recommended him yesterday. I'm not even sure that I knew the name before. Good american music!
    A few songs will be added to my road trip compilation

    Excepting a couple of numbers I really like, I put this album on as background music.

    Other than the title track and Kings & Queens there's not much to write home about with this album.... IMO

    More background Aerosmith. I promise next one's gonna be a favorite of mine.

    Edit: "Major Barbra" is a nice addition to this otherwise "meh" album.

    Funny, I always thought Major Barbara was a 'meh' song.

    Fortunately, I know we see eye-to-eye on Get Your Wings.

    I like the song, but this mix smells of 80's all over it. The version from Pandora's Box is better.

    Since you've just mentioned it, and since I promised a favorite of mine, it's time for what I consider the best Aerosmith album:

    I recently acquired this one and look forward to it. Afraid it is the Candid
    cd though. I will tweak the dynamics and see how that works out. Kudos...

    Great to see this one posted. Freeway Madness too which I have always enjoyed. I've got Silk Torpedo as well and it has it's moments. Parachute is a classic and I will never forget the first time I heard it several yrs after it's release. It made the Rolling Stone Magazine Record of the Year 1970, believe it or not.


    After getting laid back and quartered into the nether from a Jamal record,
    I decided to go for some Bob /; { Bootleg Series Vol 8, disc one. Love
    Huck's Tune and High Water.

    This has been claimed numerous places but it seems to be false.

    It appears that you are right and I stand corrected, according to Wiki. It seems a RS critic mentioned that the record was in fact the best of the year in '75, but that was not factual, not true. The same year RS magazine later did give Freeway Madness a sterling review (Stephen Holden) and reiterated that Parachute was considered at least to be an 'obscure underground classic.' That's what I get for going on memory from a while back. I still have the magazines from those years.

    Make sure to check out the two albums by Asylum Choir. This band was a duo of Marc Benno and Leon Russell (before either went solo).

    Those Leon Russell albums are great. The first Asylum Choir album
    would get a lot of attention when I was blasting it from a window
    way back when. Several folks were coming to my door, not to complain,
    but to find out what the heck was playing. lol

    I didn't really like the Wilson remix of Skylarking but this one is great!

    Disc 3. One of the most exciting archival releases ever.

    Don't let that discourage you, the music is too good and important. If you really dig it and do vinyl look for the PP reissue I mentioned and if not there's a Japan Victor K2 CD available from 1997 that may be the go to digi version but I'm unfamiliar with it. Enjoy it any way you can, it's a landmark album.

    Paul Kantner/Jefferson Starship Blows Against the Empire last night. Aerosmith's Get Your Wings during my morning commute, good listen although not as consistent as the two that followed IMHO. Now listening to Flamin' Groovies Supersnazz on Spotify at work, first listen as I don't own this one (although I do own the next two). Need to remedy that soon.
