"Magic and Loss"...Lou Reed

Reed..the master..always has something to say...

Allan...How's the Warhol film? I didn't see it yet. The soundtrack looks right on.

Listening a bit to Sting's new work on "Winter" songs....interesting stuff... it isn't like "Every Breathe You Take!"...Reminds me of his "Labyrinth" record....took a while for the songs to get throughh but I thought the album was real good. Sting's another artist who's exploring his classical side!

I used to love Lou Reed but havn't been at all impressed by anything he's done in the last decade or so. To me he's become too conventonal/middle of the road and I just find that boring. A few years back I saw him live and all he played was songs from his, then, current album, 'The Raven'. I appreciate people want to promote their new material but a few older songs wouldn't have gone amiss. To add insult to injury he did an encore of 'Perfect Day' which that year was being played to death as a charity ('Children in Need') cover record and I was sick of it at that moment!! If I could have a time machine to the 60's or early 70's I'd see Lou again but not as he is now.

Now John Cale, there's a man who, to me, still as something to say... fantastic live and still producing relevant music.

I think Reed has been doing his thing and mostly linking up with various artists lately. No new record though. And he's doing "experimental" music with Laurie Anderson. Reed.. I think a big guy in rock for all time.

And Cale, yes he's a great artist, arranger and producer and very much a force in what the VU became. Big on classical too. I see him as avant-garde all the time. And he said..."the only reason we wore sunglasses on stage was because we couldn't stand the crowd". According to him his role in VU was to "turn Lou's three min pop songs into symphonic poems". That he did.

I like Cale's avant-garde work also.....Lennon, always with tongue-in-cheek,
in reference to his avant-garde Revolution #9--(paraphrased)
"actually, avant-garde is the French word for bullsh#t." I love it!

Speaking of Lennon, LK, I've just been listening, for the first time, to the stereo Beatles For Sale....it sounds absolutely magnificent..even though it has often been thought of as a retrograde step following A Hard Day's Night. And how Lennon dominated the songs and the vocals back then. I've always thought that the balance of power between John and Paul shifted a little around the time of Revolver.

Booker T - 'Potato Hole'
.. on which, backed by the Drive By Truckers, Neil Young plays some of his most focussed guitar for a looong time. Not the greatest album ever, but one that'll be getting a lot of plays by me. Another one to slap on when doing the Sunday chores, and make 'em almost fun.
The Hammond organ is becoming an instrument that is less and less heard, with its few practitioners becoming older .. Winwood, Booker and Hodges - who else? As a long time lover of all things Al Green/ Mitchell, I will always have soft spot for Hodges' playing. Good to have Booker reminding us of his presence again. Billy Preston and Larry Young RIP.
Re. Reed and Cale: I was lucky enough to see the Velvets second gig after reforming, before Lou's ego came back to the fore to spoil things. It's a memory that I will always treasure. I will not see Lou again.. but if there's a chance to see John I'll be there.

Yeah, agree with you about Reed and his ego. John Cale is playing in Cardiff, 21st November, at the wonderful 'Coal Exchange' (where I saw a brilliant 'Love' gig a few years ago). He is playing 'Paris 1919' live. I would love to go, there are still tickets at the time of writing, but just not sure I can afford it at the moment

Not sure what everybody's doing but it would be great if Cale and Dave Byrne teamed up to do something. (Byrne just put out a record with Eno a few months). It would be interesting to see what they could put together from their musical minds. I guess I want to see how they would put songs together after the sensibilities of "Life During Wartime","Wild Wild Life" and "Eat/Kiss".
