Did Santana show up?
Sings Heartache Numbers - Marti Brom | Songs, Reviews, Credits | AllMusic
I had this and got rid it when the first remaster came out. Ugh! I have no idea how they compare, but for years trusting me always assumed the remaster was better. As if anyone in the music industry ever tried to rip anyone else off.
I bought my first two CDs on the same day—this one and Ghost In The Machine. The latter was mastered way too quiet, if you can imagine that.
I forgot to mention that Carlos Santana played with Clapton on the last song last night. Minor oversight.
A simple detail in the grand scheme of things.
Well it’s not like he played “Hold On” from the MTV era.
Love that title, and also the Blues-Fusion Live, both exceptional records. I
have a great deal of his discography and the guy was a marvel, worked his
bands like the jazz musicians of the 50's and 6o's, break them and send
them on, many to be future stars. So many great records also, Bare Wires,
Moving On, Blues Alone etc, a master and commander of the music world,
doesn't get enough credit today as he should.
Enjoyed perusing all the great listens over the last few days on the thread,
place has been on fire. Getting down with some Hendrix, which they did
a good job on I thought; good record top to bottom...
GUP is where my Rush interest ended. I wouldn’t buy another album until Snakes & Arrows. Well, I did buy Power Windows, but my copy of the cassette had pan flute music on it (a story I’ve told here probably three times).
I love GUP, and The Body Electric is unimpeachable Rush magnificence.
To paraphrase Guns N Roses. . . .not in this lifetime
I just ordered that on LP. Good stuff. Also, the Rock Pool EP is great. I wish that I could get a physical copy.
The music reminds me of The Soft Boys a bit. Only fronted by someone even quirkier than Robyn Hitchcock.
The first Phish music I ever heard.
Santana appearances aren't all that rare in the Bay Area. I'm sure @Crispy Rob can attest to this also. He did the same thing when I saw Jeff Beck. You just have to go see an act that was Carlos' contemporary. He probably shows up to any show of any great guitarist about his age. He can do that because he is also a great guitarist.
He and Clapton were trying to outdo each other with the humbling exit. They kept bowing to each other as they walked off stage.
"I'm not worthy."
"No, I'm not worthy."
"Oh, but I'm truly not worthy!" And so on.
I wanted Carlos to do his nutso sustain thing. And at one point he was working up to it, but then he stopped.
Jimmie Vaughn opened. He was good. He can play a lot of the stuff Stevie played, but Jimmie does it slower. If he was as quick as his brother he'd probably touring as JV Plays SRV.
One thought that came to mind last night watching the band was that Doyle Bramhall is a good guitar player, but Clapton is better, even now at 75 or however old he is.
Goodness, it's as if John Cale and Nico's daughter is jamming with Roxy Music and Television or something. Ear-worm city.
Cate Le Bon "I Can't Help You"
Second track released from the upcoming Angel Olsen album. This album is going to be epic.
The Allman Brothers Band
2011.03.10 - Beacon Theatre - New York, NY
Just a ridiculous amount of talent in this band.
absolutely freaking brilliant
Started the the day with Ellington and Coltrane from 1963. Just lovely.
Hittin the harder stuff now, mid 70s hard rockin greatness
I remember being facinated with Alice Cooper as a kid. The old man had the classic 70s LPs and the Billion Dollar Babies gatefold or inner sleeve was really something, I could just stare at this picture for a long time.
Dads much younger brother was an 80s hair metal rocker and made a cassette of Poison to me, maybe in 91 or so. That was so cool. That was so much better than the old 70s stuff. I changed my mind in my teen years though. 70s Alice Cooper is the stuff man!
Sabbath's cocaine album, recorded in Los Angeles 1972.
1967 heavy power trio
Grant Green Slick! - Live at Oil Can Harry's
Just started the 26 minute cover of Jobim's Insensatez. Wes Montgomery's version of this song is only 4 minutes, how insensitive.
I like all pre-hair metal Cooper albums (let's say up to 1983), but the ones I really love are those by the Alice Cooper band.
