    Easily in my Top 20 of all time. I had read that Paul wanted to sing this, and there was some fighting before LV were recorded by Art; this wasn't mentioned in this video.

    And, oddly, BOTW is NOT a stellar recording, at the end there's a lot of what sounds like overloaded preamps in the signal chain, especially the strings at the very end. And the old-timey reverbs didn't help. One song I'd love to hear re-done with modern tech, if they only could transfer the stellar vocals in a convincing way.  
    Still, if this record doesn't make the hair on your arms stand up, well...

    The original recording:

    Huey & band released another song, later, that should've been a huge hit (imnsho) but went nowhere. I LOVE this record!

    Jacob Collier, Live at the Hollywood Bowl!
    Okay, he was the only one there, but it WAS live at the HB.
    I rank this kid up there with Stevie, Joni, Mark O’Connor, and Prince.  Here it’s just him singing with an acoustic guitar (not his usual dense vox/multi-instrumental video) but it’s stunning nonetheless.  Enjoy!

    ^^^ City to City  was such a monster album, I'd always wondered whatever happened to him.  Read up his bio on Wikipedia, pretty sad story overall.

    This song.
    This *%^&$#!!! song!
    I loved it when I first heard it.  And back in those days, I would've danced half the night while it played.
     
    But I can't play it.  The tempo doesn't change, but the time/metering is all over the place.  Seeing Elfman's band do this, live, gave me a huge respect for them, they're in Zappa/Crimson/Dream Theater territory, and they're nailing it live!
    If you're a musician (and there's a few of us here) try this: crank the volume on the above video, notice that it sounds like a 4/4 rock beat, and then clap along, singing "1 2 3 4!" at the same time.  You may catch the first  couple bars of 6/4, but when the 7/4 and 3/8-beat slide thru, you'll be totally confused (and if you're not, you're a much better musician than I, not a very high bar  ;) ).  This song is WEIRD!  
    When this song came out I was in a 5-piece band called "Up in the Night"; guitar, bass, drums, female lead singer and me on keys.  They wanted to do a few more advanced tunes, including this one, and as the keyboardist/geek it fell on me to sequence the more dense tunes (filling in the extra keyboard, brass and string parts, and synth stabs).  It was a lot of work, but I came up with pretty good "half-charts" for many of the songs we did (including Superstition, and Bananarama's "Venus").  I put maybe 50 hours into mapping out "Dead Man's Party", but after 3 weeks I threw in the towel.  Couple band members got mad, but I cued it up the CD and said, "Okay, play along with this!"  They tried, and failed.  I cued it up again, said "Do it again!"  Failure.  After the fifth time they said, "Okay Botch, we get it."  I was so pissed by then I told them rehearsal was done for that night (in my basement), Go Home.  
     
    I love that tune.  And I absolutely HATE that tune.   :|

    I wasn't a big fan of this song/video when it hit (and wow did it HIT), but it was very impressive to have that many big names in one room, on one song.  The "Professor of Rock" interviewed a few of the folks in the session, with some interesting background info (for me, anyway).  When I read the video thumbnail, I immediately thought WATW, but the pic featured Steve Perry, and until now I didn't realize he was even ON the song (he didn't get a featured half-verse).  One of the characters in Doonesbury (an older, washed-up rock musician) was given a part on the song, he got to sing "the"; I actually stumped Siri on this, "Doonesbury/Doonesberry musician on WATW" and She couldn't find anything!  (I'll remember his name eventually).  PoR promises 3 or 4 more follow-up videos, I'll post them here if/when I see them.  

    Oh, and when John Oates kicks the bucket, anyone venture a guess, at his estate sale, what the sheet music for the track, signed by every single participant, might sell for?   :o 

    Just for reference (for me, it has been a long time), the original video:

    EDIT to the above post, but I cooked some dinner first and missed the window.
     
    Steve Perry DID do have a half-verse, I didn't remember it (Killed that brain cell of mine earlier, I guess).  Springsteen and Dylan got too much mic time, as did (imnsho) Ray Charles.  And Willie N. should've not tried to harmonize at all, what a punch-bowl turd.  
     
    Other than that, Quincy did a pretty good job.  Gimme a call first next time, Q; you have my number.   ;)

    I have really been enjoying Jason Isbell's latest album.  It gets better with each additional listen.

    What a treat!  
    Steely Dan had a track they had been working on for months, was just about finished and to be included on Gaucho, and a jr engineer accidently erased the whole thing.  There's a bit of legend about it.
    Roger Nichols' daughter found a digital, near-completed copy a couple years ago, and it's been released (link to the actual tune is about halfway thru the article).  
    I can't help but think the guitar solo at 2:15 is just a "placeholder", but that's okay; just hearing this at this late date is so cool.

    Oh Yeah!  This little nugget just appeared on my EweTube feed.  I was so into Chick Corea's Electrik Band in the late '80's, pretty much memorized all their albums.  John Pattitucci isn't here with them (don't recognize their guest bassist) but they're still smokin'!!  
     
    https://youtu.be/17Gxuft6v8A
     
    I only got to see them once live, in Santa Fe.  I had already bought a ticket when I was informed of a TDY in Boulder CO the next day, had to fight to let the org give me a company car and drive to SF for the show (about an hour from Albuquerque) and then drive to Boulder after the show (instead of flying).  Once I got into my hotel I only had time for maybe two hours of sleep before I had to get up for my meeting (anyone here know what "Belgian Block testing" is, without googling it?)  I didn't sleep a wink, was too hyped from the show (small club, I actually got a 2nd-row seat, right in front of Chick!)  
     
    Actually did okay for the morning's meetings, was still bouncing.  Made the mistake of ordering my usual-sized lunch, instead of maybe 3 cokes and nothing else.  I started crashing, badly, during the afternoon meetings.  Had to stand up against the back wall, and almost nodded off while standing (I think Lockheed Martin had some chuckles at my expense).  Memories.  
     
    EDIT:  This show was during Chick's "ring modulator" phase (no pun intended).  IMNSHO a ring modulator has no legitimate "musical" use, other than a one-bar interlude between sections to wake up/shock an audience.  Hate the things.

    Was reading something somewhere when I ran across the name "William Orbit".  He first came onto my radar as a techno artist whose fourth album featured some chick vocalist called "Madonna".  
    Back in the early 90's the pair kinda introduced techno/EDM to the clubs, and I absolutely flipped for this track.  At that time I was in a 5-piece bar band that did a lot of sequences, programmed between myself and the guitarist.  I did this one, and it was a lot of fun.  The guitar intro comes in, but the sequenced part comes in about a half-beat early, and slightly quicker, which really propels the track.  As the keyboardist, this was a lot of fun, with all those slow filter sweeps, most of the time letting the sequence do all the boring mechanical 1/8th notes, I just had to hold down a key and slowly sweep the knobs.  Whee!!  
    A lot of folks diss Madonna, and yeah she pulls some pretty stupid **** in her old age.  BUT, this track is not auto-tuned whatsoever, that's her singing live and she even goes just a bit sharp at the climax/high note.  I first noticed her musicianship at the "Live Aid/Concert for Africa" way back when, most of the groups that played the live show sounded pretty bad, but she absolutely nailed her vox, while dancing the choreography live.  Props!

    Had forgotten how beautiful this was.  Headphones, or speakers, if you can.
