  • Before I was able to afford albums, I was limited to my 69 cent and 99 cent 45 singles purchases. Here are a few that I wore out...now, how many of you remember ALL of these?:

    Sweet!  Early Queen's the best.

    Again, I don't expect many people to have the patience to sit through this, but if just one person here gets turned onto the genius of QUEEN II, my mission is accomplished.  Here's Freddie Mercury's genius at it's greatest, as he penned this entire side.  Side one is great too, "Father to Son" is what heavy metal would sound like if Brian Wilson produced it.  Without further ado, here's all of side 2 for the album, QUEEN II.  If you aren't going nuts toward the end of "March of the Black Queen," you're probably not alive.

  • I realize this probably won't be a very popular choice. After seeing nothing but pop and rock songs posted, I felt obligated to include a different genre. Miles Davis' album Bitches Brew was released in 1970. In my opinion (being a jazz fan), it is one of the greatest albums ever made, broke new gound, and is well known to have had a huge influence on much of the jazz that followed.

  • Pfft!  Miles Davis never had any hits, so he must be a no-hit wonder.  

    Only kidding, I respect the fact he's an important artist and the only jazz CD's I own are of Miles.  I have a strange relationship with jazz in that I respect it, and I even played in the all-state jazz band in high school, but playing it and listening to it are two different things to me.

    No matter how much I try to be a jazz fan, I always go back to my rock and metal.  This was true in my teens and it's still true in my 30's.  

    I'll check out that clip tonight, I know BITCHES BREW is when Miles dipped his toes in the rock realm and created this genre called fusion.

    Now you ask me if I believe a man can become a wolf. Well, if you mean can he take on the physical characteristics of an animal, no, it's fantastic. However, I do believe that most anything can happen to a man in his own mind.

  • Perhaps Miles was leading the fusion movement, but in 1971 this group, Chase, was hot on his heels. They at least DID have one hit. (Get it On)  ;D But I'll post this one, Invitation to a River, which contains all the elements that define jazz fusion. There is a fascinating solo by Bill Chase beginning at 6:50 in which he accompanies himself by using echos, and even manages some self harmonizing.

    I respect that, & I applaud your attitude. I do like some rock music, but metal doesn't do much for me. And I rarely listen to whatever they're playing on the radio. Imagine how boring things would be if we all liked the same thing.

    So, back to rock for now, and one of my favorite bands ever, Talking Heads. This is one of their best from 1979's Fear of Music album:

    "I Love the Night"


    [youtube=425,350]1A8wj9XiEho[/youtube]

    "Nosferatu"

    Been going through a huge Blue Oyster Cult phase lately.  It too me years to finally hear the SPECTRES album, and I was quite shocked to find it's probably my favorite album of theirs, since no one else feels that way.  Just shows you always have to follow your heart and not listen to what others say...except me of course, listen to what I say, because I'm always right  ::) , and these two songs that close the album are phenomenal.  For any of you German silent horror fans (I'm looking at you, Liz), you should love this second video.  "I Love the Night" sounds like early 70's Beach Boys if they were gothic instead of surf.

  • Very nice editing on Nosferatu. One of my favorite tunes and films. BOC is a great band indeed, and I love the way they use the Mellotron on that song to create that etherial feel it has. I Love The Night is great too. Both songs give me cold chills. Thanks for posting them.

    You're welcome, glad you like them!  Martin Popoff has written a book on BOC.  He's my favorite hard rock/metal author and critic by a long shot and to my knowledge, it's the only BOC book out there.  I'll have to check it out someday.

  • Classical Gas (for reference) 1968 Mason Williams
    [youtube=425,350]cgUql7E7S-k[/youtube]

    70's Tune ~ Sunny Monday (Booker T. & the MG'S) 1971 (pardon the scooter sounds)
    [youtube=425,350]sY7cF_u9iuU[/youtube]

    Booker T's tune is eerily similar to Classical Gas ~ even down to the same chord progressions, only sans orchestra ~ one might try to call it a cover song, but it is a classic on its own gas.

    Hey False, ever hear THICK AS A BRICK?  I ain't talking single edits, I mean the whole thing?  It's awesome if you're the type who can take an album that contains one 45 minute song.  I guess I'm the type.  If you like that one, proceed to A PASSION PLAY.

    My favorite Tull album is MINSTREL IN THE GALLERY, but AQUALUNG, the song and album, are obviously classic as well.

  • I've heard the edited version, which I liked, but not the whole thing. That'd take some kind of endurance to listen to a 45 minute song.

    "Thick as a Brick" is one of my all-time faves! Long but always interesting, changing, never boring. And if you have the original LP cover, there's a lot of weird stuff to read while listening!
    I have every Tull LP, and others of my top favorites are "Aqualung" (I guess essential for a Tull fan to include) and "Songs from the Wood". Interesting that you recommend "A Passion Play" - after liking "Thick as a Brick" so much I really tried to get into it but never was able to really appreciate it. It was okay but it never really "grabbed me". Maybe I'll check it out again soon.

    I just mentioned A PASSION PLAY because it's the other one song Jethro Tull album.  Obviously not as good as THICK AS A BRICK, but it has its moments.

    Glad you mentioned SONGS FROM THE WOOD, that goes into my Tull Big Four with AQUALUNG, THICK AS A BRICK, and MINSTREL IN THE GALLERY.

    "Velvet Green" (from "Songs From the Wood" - 1977)

    [youtube=425,350]MnirEuU0MYk[/youtube]

    "Slow Marching Band" (technically from 1982's BROADSWORD AND THE BEAST, but since we're talking Tull here, I'll include the song in the 70's thread)
