Yeah the Percy album is good!

Right now I am listening to Can - Tago Mago.

I didn't know that there was another Can fan on the messageboard, Bobinbed. You too. Yippee! Someone else understands! A rare breed. They've always been one of tha bands closest to my heart. I was lucky enough to see them a few times. I got a copy of the 2005 remixed version of 'Future Days' recently to ease the wear on my vinyl, and reckon this new mix sounds even better - crystal clear, lots of 'bottom end' and sounds that I'd never noticed before. 100% recommended. This isn't 'difficult' music, just different, timeless, like Wyatt's 'Rock Bottom' or '70's Eno.
Coincidentally, what I'm most in the mood for st the moment is Holger Czukay's wonderful 'Movies'. The number of times I've had 'Persian Love' on repeat play over the years..

You know mentioning Percy had me checking out the whole Kink repertoire and they of course are a great band that recorded some unbelievable songs though I think they aren't appreciated as much as they should be...(that is on the radar of "greatness")...

for you guys in England and London specifically... in a survey "Waterloo Sunset" was supposedly the greatest song penned for London...As a visitor recently all I can say is that I think it hits home on the place...Found out Ray D originally called it "Liverpool Sunset" because he saw the "end of Merseybeat"......renamed it Waterloo Sunset for his parents' generation........after "Percy"..check out "Something Else"..you won't be disappointed in the songs... for me one of the greatest rock albums ever made..."As long as I gaze on Waterloo Sunset I am in paradise".....

Totally agree on the Kinks and Waterloo Sunset..as a Londoner, i beleive this song captures the felling of the city, and of the love of the place the people here have, also David Bowie,s London Boys captures the feeling of Soho perfectly.
For Alone again, and everyone who likes Rory Galagher, there is a show from 1976 on Wolfgang,s Vault.
Happy Listening

Glad you enjoyed London Rocker, I can,t help but smiling at the thought of a step ladder in the middle of Abbey road back in the day!
And Thanks for getting me to start playing The Kinks again. Ray Davies is a true genius, so many great tunes to his name.

I'm listening to Tandy's "The Lowdown" (1997-2002) album. A compilation of their best stuff up till then. Remember Tandy did a cover of Arthur's "You I'll Be Following" which I think is really good. And the Wabash Cannonballs album of the same name, the ultimate feel good, party album imho. Also listening to the Beatles "Love" album on-line.

Thank goodness. Never been to the UK but that song makes me wish I could.

You guys made me go dig up the vinyl for "Something Else." Thanks for the reminder. Not a clinker on the whole second side!

just for the holidays:....I saw this cd by Blackmore's Night called "Winter Carols"..seems Ritchie Blackmore (formerly deep Purple guy) and his wife are now doing music with a Renaissance motif..pretty good music for the Christmas season..I liked it very much..kind of reminded me of Steeleye Span...I'll probably be checking out some of their other stuff out..

Rocker Rocker Rocker...Blackmore's Night?

God, I used to love Ritchie Blackmore. Still do. I even had time for Blackmore's Night's debut album. I've seen them live twice. Really enjoyed it.

But, damn it, I can take it no more. Sweet, sappy, sugary dross. The greatest heavy rock guitar player of all time playing Christmas Carols with a mandolin?

I just can't take it. I like to think I'm open minded, but anything after Blackmore's Night's debut album was a step too far for me.

So if you insist on looking into them further, I recommend Shadow of the Moon. After that, you're on your own. It all starts to sound the same after a while. There's about 6 studio albums worth of this stuff.

As far as I'm concerned, it should have remained a one off project, before he phoned up Ronnie Dio (now there is a bloke who's made nothing worth listening to since 1985) and reformed Rainbow! :)

As for Renaissance music, I'm sure this thing has been done better elsewhere. And Ritchie is no Bert Jansch on the old acoustic.

heh heh yeah Cal Jam...I know what your talking about when you speak of the "syrupy" stuff....as a matter of fact I did check out another album (Village Lantern) to hear the "sound" of the band that wasn't "holidayish". After hearing it though I still liked Steeleye better when it comes to that kind of musical style and orientation. Musically, I like Renaissance-style stuff (both "classsical" and contemporary as I guess we can call Blackmore's approach to that kind of music). I think all those riffs of "Smoke on the Water" made Blackmore want to go into a different direction,eh? You know he lives near me as a matter of fact. I think I might say hello to'em one day!...;-).

But on another note you bring up a point on all of our musical tastes and how they develop. When I was a kid I was into Herman's Hermits..ok a little different than the United States of America...;-).....Anyway, today I attribute all that... er...to Mickie Most's production values on MGM records...;-)...but really I still like "I'm into Something Good!"..For me, listening to Noone and his band ironically got me to Arthur and his stuff!......And remember, before there was "I Want To Hold Your Hand" there had to be alot of be-bop-alua-be my baby and shoo-bop shoo-bop bop bop stuff first that everybody "grooved" to!..hey that's a word from the vaults, eh?....;-)...

Low - 'Christmas' (EP)

Low are far and away my favourite 'current' musicians. I love them. One thing that I look forward to at this time of year is putting this in the CD player and letting this wonderful warm/sad/sparse/profound music wash over me. This is a truly great band, but at times it seems like one of modern musics best kept secrets. Like Love, following them feels like being in some form secret society, where half of you wants everyone to know about and play their music, while he other half wants to keep them as 'your' special band.
Read the reviews of this on the 'net and do what your heart should then tell you. Its ridiculously cheap - at least in the UK - and would still be worth having if double the price. Go on - it's Christmas..

.. and then buy the rest of their output. Not a duff record to be found.
