Sorry, gb. 

Ugly ugly performance but 3 straight sweet 16s is a nice run. Can’t make the title game every year. I think they will be much better next season.

Love this song. Took it in a music draft that included Fight Songs. Up a little early and feel like I've been missing out, then I hear this. Sorry the men's team (God, how clinical but appropriate is that) went down. 

I'm listening to this right now, which you might appreciate.

Black Sabbath - Planet Caravan

I had not heard this one in a while, and it just popped up on my auto-crawl in YouTube.

Its better than I remember...

 

We sail through endless skies
Stars shine like eyes
The black night sighs

 

The moon in silver trees
Falls down in tears
Light of the night


The earth, a purple blaze
Of sapphire haze
In orbit always

While down below the trees
Bathed in cool breeze
Silver starlight breaks down from night


And so we pass on by the crimson eye
Of great god mars
As we travel the universe

Mrs Eephus is playing "A Message to You, Rudy" by the Specials in the kitchen.  She's singing along but I can't tell if she's dancing or not.

wait a sec... is this new DCD? 

was a big fan back innaday. saw them a couple times I think.

Yes they released it late last year LP called Dionysus .  Started listening to them in the early 90s thought the lead singer sounded like Jim Morrison.  My wife can't stand them so if I want a little alone time I just stick them on the stereo.

I wanted to say GB to a GB last night, but was struck by keyboard fright. Love you, pal, and sorry for your loss. I love Toots and moved him to front of the record bin for my favorite laroosh, you hear? Let the Pressure Drop. GB, GB.

I'm in an RL Burnside shuffle right now:

Let My Baby Ride

It's bad you know

Listening to the 2nd link, I know very little about RL other than he was an old school blues guy. I assume this track was put together by a producer or did he actually embrace this modern style late in life? It's great- reminds of the Sopranos theme or something by the Kills.

This vid was great too. Do we have any thread here that cover this theme: STUDY THE GREATS?

If not, we should.

Excellent analysis.

From this link: On The Flip-Side - Song of the Week: "It's Bad You Know", R.L. Burnside

Quote

...Fat Possum Records signed Burnside and recorded a number of albums with the aging farmer/bluesman. Then, around the late 90's, musician John Spencer did a pilgrimage to Burnside's musical backyard and recorded an album with him entitled ### Pocket Full of Whiskey. Burnside's hypnotic hill country blues, by now electrified, was a strange but intriguing mix with Spencer's more avant garde punk inflected style. More young, white blues enthusiasts were now sitting at Burnside's feet. Namely, Akron, Ohio's The Black Keys who were picking up on Burnside's catchy melodies and heavy riffs.

 

The next time Burnside sauntered into the studio, the lads at Fat Possum had a radical idea...totally rethink the blues and market to this new punk/blues crowd that looked to the quiet farmer from Holly Springs as their disciple. The affable Burnside was up for it and, with his young grandson Cedric and long time guitarist Kenny Brown, he laid down some hard core hill country blues.  The producers and engineers then broke it all down and built it back up. The result, like the record, was mixed...and the reception was the same. Then, just as it seemed like the experiment may have failed, another funny thing happened, the cats on the Class-A show, The Sopranos, picked up one of the songs from the album and featured it prominently in one of their episodes. Suddenly, at 60+ years of age, Burnside had a new audience. Suddenly he was a badge of hipness for the PBR drinking, trucker-hat hipsters that were in constant search for the next cool thing. Burnside was as hip as a western shirt with snap buttons, Pabst Blue Ribbon from a can, and tattoos of Betty Paige.

 

The song in question is It's Bad You Know and it breathed new life into Burnside's strange, meandering career. You may not like it. You may think it is blasphemy. Me? I love it. I find it to be a wonderful new take on a still fresh musical standard. I listen to and I think to myself, well, well, well. Burnside died about 2 years ago. I never got to see him. Dang.

Oh ####, my radar was right on that one. Also cool that he was actively a part of it and it wasn't just someone remixing it after he died. I like that style.

Last night I heard Lara Raines and the Cesars from the motor city. It was a free event on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. Bluesy and R&B. A little bit of Aretha: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBR3HNE5KvQ

They're doing the winter tour through Florida.

I've actually seen them before. I forget id they played a brewery I was at or if it was a summer the park free concert.  They were fun.

Next up: Live Dexter Gordon

I just love his sound.

Sweet. I was just talkin to wikkid about my love of jazz. I am not very knowledgeable about history and details, but I know I like it - I like this. Really mellow - it remind me of a '70s Charlie Brown TV show soundtrack - that = good in my book! Or, of a rainy night I spent in Philly by myself 👍

Very nice! Soul / R&B - Detroit = great!

 

Now, this just popped up on my youtube-y auto --- it's in a different direction - not sure how popular this is round here, but I posted it b4 - few years ago I believe - but, I love the intensity of this Elvis Costello cover...by....Elvis Costello...and ---

Fiona Apple & Elvis Costello "I Want You"

I am nowhere near as knowledgeable about jazz as I am rock but at this point in my life, I find jazz much more interesting than rock.

Yeah - me too.

I'm a pretty poor guitarist, but I do try. I've found over the years, that I play better to jazz...the free-er the form & the more improvisin', the better I do.

Jazz seems like a conversation to me, rather than a "score" to follow or a "mark" to hit. If I flub a note, no problem - for me - the greats, however, well, they don't flub - they poet-i-fy.  It's so amazing to me.

Here is a pretty good example of some newer/newish jazz - free - improvised at parts.

It is not everyone's cup a tea though.

Taming the Dragon - Brad Mehldau

 

Here is something a little more normal:

Mehliana (Brad Mehldau & Mark Guiliana) - Hungry Ghost (Live)

I do like the 2nd better. That is some good modern jazz. Have you heard Flying Lotus?  He is doing some real modern blends of electronic, jazz and hiphop.

Bernadette, they want you because of the pride that gives
But Bernadette, I want you because I need you to live

and

I'll tell the world you belong to me
I'll tell the world, you're the soul of me
I'll tell the world you're a part of me

and

Bernadette -You're the soul of me
On that dream, you're a friend to me
And Bernadette, you mean more to me
Than a woman was ever meant to be

 

Always make my spine tingle - don't really know why - combination of sounds and lyrics ??? 

Regardless - love the song, Bink. 👍

That has some sounds in it, that I have heard b4 - but never without the outside influence of foreign chemicals.

Electronically generated, manipulated I'm guessing - without doing any research.

 

I'm letting my auto-play stay on, and am listening to Do The Astral Plane now - very enjoyable.

/So true. I got my first computer in '82 - a Texas Instrument TI 99 - one of the 1st things I bought was a music composition program - reaaaly crapppy by today's standards, but man - I ran the F outta it.  Great fun.

 

Now, since I've been rolling all over topics prolly not truly related to this thread, I have another tangent.

What I like about this thread is all the different music that I would not find or listen to on my own...I feel like this guy - the joy of being exposed to something new and different.

Note: Vid really isn't music - more about experiencing something good for the 1st time.
