    I just asked my Maker to make your back ills go away, so you got that going for you, which is nice.:agree:

    Oh, that would be SATAN. :nauga:

    Nah, I just used the term "maker" so as not to overly invoke religion here. Plus Mr. August West uses the term.

    I always suspected that of you. :nyah:

    Now, y'all, take some time to be quiet and ponder this. I mean, seriously shut up and listen:

    I'm double posting covers here and in the Anything Neil thread. I like this album. This is worth owning if you're into Neil. I thought, "Uh oh, do I really need this," when I bought it, but I kind of did.

    The show at the Greek on that tour was excellent.

    The version of "Big Box" on this is incendiary.

    The Rising Storm,
    Calm Before The Storm

    1967 • original mono

    CD Sundazed • 2017 reissue
    upc : 090771632326

    originally issued as a privately-pressed LP on the Remnant label, 500 copies only, making it one stupidly rare and expensive record. only three times has it been reissued in collector's editions on vinyl;
    in 1983 on the EVA label,
    in 1992 on Stanton Park Records, and
    most recently in 2017 on Sundazed Music.

    I hardly ever listen to mid-60s garage-punk anymore, but this one is an
    absolute gem ! The CD version is great.

    The 03:26-4:38 segment of "Scrape, scrape, scrape" is beyond belief. I've just listened to it thirteen times in a row :nyah:

    Is that actually good music, or did you just buy it for the cover art?

    Whenever I see you share something from Robyn Hitchcock I think that’s someone else I should check out. What would you recommend as an introductory album? Looks like there a bunch on Spotify I could sample.

    Every time I put this on I wonder why I don't play it more. It is a great
    record that is not killed off (mostly) by those early 80s-production kinks,
    has nice arrangements, and Joe's plays the everyman of ballads, tough gritty
    blues and is more than in fine voice here. Although the voice is what makes the
    lp, (he nails it on Seven Days) I've recently paid more attention to the band,
    and to a man, the playing is solid... the guitarists and drummer gets some good
    licks in. The keyboardist get a few cheesy synth lines too, but not in a
    overwhelming way. All brought to you by Sly and Robbie, Adrian Belew,
    and Robert Palmer/Jimmy Cliff on backing vocals.

    I'd go with The Soft Boys (a band he led from 1976 -1980) classic album Underwater Moonlight. Alternatively, for a more acoustic Robyn Hitchcock, try I Often Dream of Trains or Eye.

    Be sure also to check out the Jonathan Demme (RIP) filmed live acoustic concert Storefront Hitchcock.

    I'd say Fegmania! or Moss Elixir maybe.

    A nice sounding show from the Convention Center in Dallas, Nov 1976 w/
    Eric Clapton hosting. Sign Language and Hello Old Friend are included
    from the material on his new release at the time... a studio favorite for me.
    The No Reason To Cry Tour... and the show is pretty accomplished.

    For Robyn Hitchcock, I'd recommend starting with The Soft Boys' Underwater Moonlight, Globe of Frogs, Gotta Let This Hen Out (a great live one). The GD covered a track from Globe of Frogs with Suzanne Vega on 9/24/88, even.

    I happened to be listening to Belle and Sebastian earlier today myself, The Life Pursuit, really enjoyable album. Tonight, listened to Devadip Carlos Santana's 1980 album, The Swing of Delight. I bought a NM (per the sticker - and it's still true) copy of this for $4.99 back in 1991 or 1992 and probably only played it twice if even that much, just didn't do it completely for me at the time. Tonight dug it out for the first time since then, and really enjoyed it. Herbie Hancock plays on the whole album. Wayne Shorter and Tony Williams play on much of it. Carlos rips. It's almost all instrumental, has a bit of 1980 gloss, but is really quite fantastic.

    Sticking with '80s guitar-based jazz fusion-ish music, Allan Holdsworth's Metal Fatigue playing now. First listen, picked this up about a year ago in the used vinyl bins.
