But yet his songs live on tehrefoe the messages they hold will never go away..another of his great songs.."Flower Lady"..always liked it...


Flower Lady is a great one, rocker.

Here is a really fine live performance of "Crucifixion" with a nice accompanying video.

So I'm finishing listening to Ummagumma with visions of your bloody fingers dancing in
my head, caryne.
Does "A Saucerful of Secrets" keep your fingernails intact since Sid appeared on something
like 3 tracks?
There are likely a few of your favorite artists, from your "era", that bring on the fingernail analogy for my ears and fingers, caryne......
but that's what makes the world go round.

The thing is LK, I don't stick to 'eras', I like (and dislike) music from all eras, what I do dislike, as I have said before, is people who only listen to music from a particular era and dismiss all others.

Syd Barrett was a genius....there can be no doubt about that. But I also love many of the Pink Floyd songs that came from the period immediately following his leaving. Among my favourites are Julia Dream, Cymberline, Granchester Meadows and Pillow of Winds. I know that many subscribe to the view that Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here count as the group's best work. But to me they were at their peak when they were writing haunting scores for experimental films like More and Zabriskie Point.

As for eras.....I say listen to and celebrate whatever era you may. I count it as real blessing that we live in such a musically tolerant age.

Me too, caryne...wasn't pigeonholing you...especially based on your past posts.....your
tastes are for the ages. Certain bands we grew up with sometimes have a stronger place in
our hearts simply because it was the time of our emotional blossoming....teen years & 20's.
I know you love Stooges & they are great, but don't have that deep spot for me, even as they
were around in the late 60's. My friend grew up in Detroit & got to see Iggy quite a few times
in & around Detroit...Like he says..."Iggy tells it like it is". It's not about eras, you're right, it's
what touches us....and wouldn't it be awful & boring if we all loved the same music.
I think the music we hate only makes us love "our own" music more!
Saw the Stooges on new 180 gram vinyl yesterday. Nice.

by the way, what's your favorite LP cover, caryne? Stooges' is really great, but for me I love
Laura Nyro's "Eli & The 13th Confession"....god, is that beautiful!

Anybody else's favorite cover(s) .....if you can't pick one.....

I'm not sure I have a favourite LP cover, so many to choose from, but The Clash - London Calling is a good one, such a great photo. There is also a band called 'Scarlet's Well' (who feature Bid who was once the singer in The Monochrome Set another favourite band) they actually have achieved the almost impossible task of making beautiful CD's. You need to check their webiste to have some idea what I mean.

From Within Sapphire Thinkers on Hobbit label

This obscure Psych LP is quite good for anyone looking to expand their collection with new
& quality dreamy pop psych. Variously compared to the Doors, Jefferson Airplane, Strawberry
Alarm Clock, & Mamas & Papas. Lots of acid fuzz guitar & organ.

It can actually be downloaded at Akashaman's Kosmos' psych blog, along with a couple dozen
other obscure vinyl & Cd lost treasures. Good reviews, info & links too.
