    Back in High School, there were a couple of vinyl albums under the tree for me, and my favorite gift was this:

    ChicagoIXcoverjpg
     

    I got to listen to it twice Xmas Eve, and one more time in the a.m. before we went over the river and thru the woods to grandmother's house. There was one tune, that somehow I'd never heard on the radio, that kept playing in my head thru that Xmas, at both grandparents' GTGs in Minnesota and Iowa.  
    It was "(I've been) Searching So Long". It's my favoritest Chicago song of all time, their version of "Hey Jude" (and that could be a brilliant mash-up!) Here, Rick Beato walks thru their Greatest Hits, and his favorites line up with mine, exactly. Pretty cool!

    One of the most haunting, magical, creepy, and downright Beautiful tracks I've ever heard, and it's even by Fleetwood Mac!
    And no one else knows about it.  Whoever put this video together (it came out before "videos" were a thing) did a good job of capturing it's Essence.  Enjoy.

    Cool interview about a "Two-Hit Wonder" band, Sugarloaf.  They did "Green-Eyed Lady" and "Don't Call Us", which most here will know.  Both very catchy pop-rock tunes that you just don't hear anymore.

    CBS's "Sixty Minutes" just blew my mind tonight. I've followed the music of Hans Zimmer for a long time, a very prolific movie score artist who incorporated a lot of non-orchestral elements (synths, noise, non-Western music) into his movies, and is right up there with John Williams.
    What I did NOT know, is I saw him appear on TV over 40 years ago: he was the keyboardist for The Buggles, "Video Killed the Radio Star", the first (and for weeks, only) video played on this new thing called "MTV".
    I. Did. Not. Know. That!

    I don’t know if this would be appealing or not to anyone who wasn’t familiar with the originals.

    Tonight, doing dishes, FZ's Easy Meat started flowing thru my head.  It should be flowing thru yours.  A fun little ditty about a young slut, followed by a (I believe) classical twelve-tone row, then an extended free-form guitar solo, where both the soloist and the drummer (Vinnie Coialuta?) push and pull the whole band into different tempos (wow!), do a quick reprise of the twelve-tone, then finish up with the original ditty...
    Damn I miss Frank.

    Oh, and EweTube just gave me this, Easy Meat live!  Chad Wackerman (sp?) on drums, I think that was Steve Vai on rhythm guitar, and fewer tempo changes during the guitar solo (but, hey, this was live).  
    What a **** band.   :o

    Possibly the most iconic album cover art of all time yet Boomer MAGAt's are upset with the 50th anniversary album reissue because...rainbow...

    What doesn't trigger these people anymore???


    "Oh my God... Pink Floyd is triggering the hell out of the homophobes without intentionally (or maybe they are?) doing it and it is GLORIOUS," wrote another.

    LOL.

    I've bought that album in vinyl, 8track, cassette, CD and I'll likely buy it one more time come March.

    I have it on 5.1 Surround (can't remember if it's SACD or DVD-A), and it blows the stereo headphone mix out of the water; wow.

    Just found this jem.  Poorly recorded but the music comes across.  Glen Campbell, and songwriter Jimmy Webb (whom I've never even seen before after all these years, and a very good pianist too) performing "Wichita Lineman", a favorite song of mine. (skip to about the 3:00 mark)

    EDIT:  the original guitar solo was played on a tenor guitar, which gave it much more full-bodied, and haunting, sound.  Magic.

    @Botch - Thank you for sharing that link. Jimmy Webb's songs have been a part of my life for a very long time. So many artists have sung his tunes, including actor Richard Harris. This is my well worn copy of his guitar tab book published in 1969. At that time there were 30 artists who had recorded another of my favorite JW songs, "By The Time I Get to Phoenix" including Joe Tex.

    One of the EweTubers I sorta follow is "The Professor of Rock", who does clips about the tunes most of us grew up with.  Here he interviews Randy Bachman (whom you are mis-pronouncing) of The Guess Who, and Bachman Turner Overdrive.  

    This 20-minute interview is absolutely nutz.  It involved Paperback Writer, a blind sound engineer, mascara in Grand Central Station, laryngitis, recording sessions by Steve Miller Band and War both down the hall, Carlos Santana singing about Ukranian food, an insistent pizza delivery guy who plays piano, Elvis' tombstone, Bette Midler, Dire Straits, etc, etc.  Great interview.

    Yuja Wang bends the classical dress code, startles the conductor with speed at the beginning, and makes me piss myself.  Dayam.

    Gershwin.  I've played an abbreviated version of this piece in public a couple times (from the 'bone section), it never fails to floor me.

    This just popped up on my feed, an early concert by The Police at some engineering college in Scotland; very early, their first album had just come out. Video is poor, sound is poor, mix is pretty good, and the performance is FEROCIOUS!! Enjoy!

    @Botch - Thank you for sharing that link. I have a recording of Rhapsody in Blue with Leonard Bernstein at the piano and conducting the Columbia Symphony Orchestra that until now was my favorite version. Watching Yuja Wang playing the tune that was an amazing, playful, sexy, and loving interpretation that totally captured me. It has now been added to my Youtube Favorites.

    I downloaded Billy Joel Essentials from iTunes. Boy I regret not spending that $5 cover to go see him at a hole in the wall bar while I was in college. Just before he was signed by the big boys. Honestly $5 was a lot of money to me at the time, I didn't have rich parents tossing money at me.

    BJoel came to ISU in ~80.  At the time I wasn't a fan, but my roommate was from Brooklyn and a huge fan.  I decided not to buy a ticket for the same reasons (I'm sure it was more than $5), but everyone else on the floor was super excited.  
    The afternoon of the concert Brendan handed me a ticket, said, "I bought this and you're going!".  To this day, one of the best shows I've ever seen.
