Good one, OM, I listened to a fair bit of stuff by The Pirates this week. Mick Green really deserved to be far better known for the innovative guitarist that he was.

Had the Faces and Early Rod Stewart on a lot recently. I've come to the conclusion that he has as much of a claim for the "godfather of punk" status as anyone.

Not so sure about that Martin, as his stuff was a lot more 'soul' based and, of course came after the likes of Lou Reed, Iggy etc (the other 'contenders' for the title) but I do agree early Rod/Faces is damn fine stuff and it's a pity he ended up making utter nonsense when he had so much talent.

Dunno about 'godfather of punk', Martin, but godfather of scallywags certainly. I was lucky enough to see them live in '71, on what, I think, was the same tour that John Peel saw his favourite ever live performance. I have never before or since seen a band combine totally brilliant musicianship and vox with larking about in equal measure. F for Faces, F for FUN.
Btw, are you familiar with Rod's vocal performance from that time on Python Lee Jackson's 'In A Brokren Dream'? (Guitar = Jeff Beck). Staggering. It climbed the charts, then was suddenly deleted through legal probs. Not sure if ever re-released, but it'll be out on the 'net somewhere if not. God it's good..

AND ROD'S FIRST FEW SOLO LPS ARE GREAT! Has there been a more wasted
talent over the subsequent decades?!

"Reason To Believe" is one fine Rod Stuart record. But why did he do "Hot Legs" and "Do You Think I'm Sexy?" ?

...what the world needs now...

Faces are pretty good, agreed, but speaking of soul, Rod never matched the soulfulness of Steve Marriott and neither could Ron Wood on guitar. It's always been a source of irritation to me that Rod Stewart became an international superstar, when it was Stevie M who had the greater talent.

Rod's voice added that something to the mix...it stood out like no one else. The best voice
doesn't always win, sometimes it's the one with the raspy soul.

Remember in that interview in the UK on "Dont Look Back". Dylan tells the press
that, " I can sing as well as Caruso". And it's true. He meant he sang as he wished and
as controlled as Caruso.

Dylan proved on Nashville Skyline.....he could sing quite well......
that he could hit any note he wished. The early Dylan chose to sing the notes he chose to sing...
and it was exactly what the songs needed...those beat poet, arcane lyrics fit perfectly with his
groundbreaking beat poet RAP and "out of tune" voice. Perfectly sung, just like Caruso!
