What are you listening to RIGHT NOW?

OK, treitz3 & I were talking about doing this last night.

I figure we all have something to learn about different music so post up & maybe we'll learn something new! Please give at least Artist/Song/Album; add if it's in Redbook or SACD format and maybe even a label if you want to. Feel free to insert links to a clip if you want!

Listening to:

Steely Dan, "Everything Must Go" from the CD of the same name, on Reprise label, in Redbook format. This is a great CD. Here's a YouTube clip:

Bootcut. Hammond vs Drums

Classic sounding jazzed up drumming with that unmistakeable Hammond organ sound.

Artist: Cream
Album: Disraeli Gears (Remasters)

Later tonight, I'll be listening to: Jimi Hendrix "Live at Monterey" and the new Eagles album "Long Road Of Eden".

I should have never wandered over to the "Electronics" section of WalMart this afternoon when I was picking up groceries...

Interesting note about that Hendrix "Monterey" recording. Supposedly, Jimi was tripping balls during this performance, but you'd never know from his guitar playing--it is exemplary Hendrix, both creatively and technically...

However, you CAN tell from his voice, he "peaks" sometime around "Purple Haze", and it shows.

But the last track, "Wild Thing" is just about the most far-out thing you'll ever hear played on electric guitar, next to his signature rendition of the National Anthem from Woodstock.

One can only imagine what it must have been like to see this guy perform live, especially back in those crazy, free, innoscent days of the lat 1960's. Hendrix is mind-blowing to us today, after 30 years of "heavy metal", the punk movement, speed metal, all the self-righteous pseudo art-rock bullshit that came out of Seattle in the '80's, and everything else. It's hard to imagine what people in 1968, less than 10 years after "do-wop" and Motown, must have thought when they saw this guy...

Hendrix's death was indeed a tremendous loss to the world of music, art, and modern western culture. Like Jim Morrison, he was a post-modern Shaman, on the road to Electric Enlightenment, and he shocked an entire generation into temporary clarity.

Too bad about the '70's and '80's when they all graduated form college, got jobs working for the Man, and forgot everything they learned at Monterey and on Yasgur's farm in Bethel NY. May the Gods have mercy upon their souls, for voluntarily abandoning their Birthright of Freedom, Love, and Cooperation.

Or maybe it was just bad memory recall from all the acid... ;)

Orange juice is acid too ya know .... Just as hard on the system, especially when mixed with 3 kinds of rum ........... O:)

And funny you should mention Wild Thing Dreamer. I just relistened to the original recording of it by the Troggs. Want to talk about a horrible recording? Its a wonder the song ever became a hit!

I'm listening to my coworkers bicker.

Later, I plan to listen to Beethoven, either the 5th or 9th.

The original Troggs version was released before FM radio became big in the US, so I'm sure it sounded like just about everything else that was airing on AM those days--crappy, compressed, and full of tape hiss...

Anyway, right now I'm listening to what is possibly the polar opposite of the music spectrum--Nora Jones' album "Come Away With Me", particularly the songs "Lonestar" and "One Flight Down". Soulful, beautifully recorded, and tight...

Jones' voice is perhaps not as sophisticated as Diana Krall, owing I suppose to the fact that she's about 15 years younger than Krall, and Jones might not have the stratospheric "gospel choir" range of Eva Cassidy, but there is a quality of "worldliness" that belies her years to her voice, and her phrasing and grasp of pace and pause is deceptively sensual in it's simplicity. Truth be told, EVERY track on this disc is pretty engaging, even if the mixing and mic-ing of the instruments is a little wonky in places (I'm convinced that whoever mic'd her piano needs to be fired, and replaced with the same guy who mic's Diana Krall's piano...).

And for those of you who are cognizant of time-stamps, no, I DON'T sleep much, at least not at night... ;)
