    Zeel - Hard Rock on Easy Street

    Rock band with kind of an old school 80's/90's sound to go along with a bitchin' album cover. Plus, they are from Boston... What's not to like? OK don't answer that.

    101 Strings “Astro-Sounds from Beyond The Year 2000”. I guess in 1968 the year 2000 seemed impossibly far away. From 21 years further on most of this seems very dated, though some does have a certain charm. Unlikely to get another airing for quite some time.

    Because I've never heard them uttered in the same sentence, let alone seen them together on the same...well, anything. :)

    Anthony Braxton: Charlie Parker Project 1993

    most jazz fans HATED this

    disc 1

    Braxton on reeds
    Paul Smoker on trumpet
    Joe Fonda on double bass
    Misha Mengelberg on piano
    Han Bennink on drums

    you KNOW why this first disc is great, of course it’s Misha & Han

    Listen to the two of them - genius

    NME/Charley Pocket Jukebox. Originally one of a series of great compilation cassettes put out by the NME during the 1980s and, as I recall, only available by mail order. Other favourites were “The Tape With No Name” (New Country as it was then known), “All Africa Radio” (self explanatory) and “Straight No Chaser” ( Jazz of course). As far as I know this was the only one to be released as a CD. Great selection, with something for pretty much everybody.

    Oh, help me in my weakness
    I heard the drifter say
    As they carried him from the courtroom
    And were taking him away

    My trip hasn't been a pleasant one
    And my time, it isn't long
    And I still do not know
    What it was that I've done wrong

    What's the big deal? They're just another band out of Boston...

    I always preferred REM when Stipe had hair and you couldn't understand much of what he was saying. Like the aptly named debut.

    Remains my favorite REM.

    Same, but my favorite R.E.M. is Chronic Town, which is a perfect EP. Beyond Fables they started to lose me.

    While no doubt some jazz fans don't like Braxton's take on Parker (or standards), I recall nothing but praise when this set was blown out into an 11-CD box in 2018.
