PICK 16.20

BRIAN ENO - HERE COME THE WARM JETS

Songs

- Baby's On Fire

- Cindy Tells Me

I can't let this one go any longer ...I know there are at least a handful of Eno fans out there and this has been snapped up in other drafts.  I love most all the songs on here so picking just two was hard.  In the end, I went with what might be more appealing to most of the drafters for the list.  "Needles In The Camel's Eye" and "The Paw Paw Negro Blowtorch" were especially tough to pass over.  I heartily encourage any of you to listen the whole album.  

Allmusic overview

Eno's solo debut, Here Come the Warm Jets, is a spirited, experimental collection of unabashed pop songs on which Eno mostly reprises his Roxy Music role as "sound manipulator," taking the lead vocals but leaving much of the instrumental work to various studio cohorts (including ex-Roxy mates Phil Manzanera and Andy Mackay, plus Robert Fripp and others). Eno's compositions are quirky, whimsical, and catchy, his lyrics bizarre and often free-associative, with a decidedly dark bent in their humor ("Baby's on Fire," "Dead Finks Don't Talk"). Yet the album wouldn't sound nearly as manic as it does without Eno's wildly unpredictable sound processing; he coaxes otherworldly noises and textures from the treated guitars and keyboards, layering them in complex arrangements or bouncing them off one another in a weird cacophony. Avant-garde yet very accessible, Here Come the Warm Jets still sounds exciting, forward-looking, and densely detailed, revealing more intricacies with every play.

I’ve said in other threads, but Driving Me Backwards is a creepy treat.

Looking at what’s out there, I might have to double up on one artist. I feel like this 2nd half of the draft is lining up really well for me. 

So my message for the next couple rounds is


Seriously though, I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Family, food, drinks, smoke, music, sun, shade, mulch (wink wink) and whatever makes ya happy.

I need something a little more recent since I’m pretty much all 70s/80s/90s on my island. It’s got a couple bigger hits, but I like the whole album for a chill vibe. Yo Mama selects:

 

16.22 - Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (2009)

1 - Lisztomania

2 - 1901

3 - Fences

4 - Love, Like a Sunset, Pt. 1

5 - Love, Like a Sunset, Pt. 2

6 - Lasso

7 - Rome

8 - Countdown

9 - Girlfriend

10 - Armistice

 

The tribe has spoken and narrowed my song choices from 4 down to 2:

Lisztomania

Armistice

:thumbup: Back in the back yard this afternoon listening to some prospective picks. BBQ'd at lunch and set some to mom and in-laws. Beer poured, sun shining, patio umbrella providing shade.  All I'm missing from your list is the smoke, maybe I'll see what we have hanging around for later tonight.

I have a half dozen I keep waffling about, but just in case anyone had this in mind, I better grab it now as I need this Eva on the Island and will kick myself if I wait any longer... she is an artist, like many folks like myself .. that I discovered posthumously.  An interpreter of almost any kind of song style and a truly magical voice.  I love this record and reach for it often.  I consider her version of over the rainbow the definitive (other than Judy).  Fields of Gold is guaranteed to move you if you have lost someone close to you....  

RD 16 '(I think) - Eva Cassidy - Songbird - 1998

  • Fields of Gold
  • Over the Rainbow

Eva - Songbird

Tracklist

  • 1 Fields of Gold - Sting - 04:42
  • 2 Wade in the Water - Traditional - Eva Cassidy - 04:02
  • 3 Autumn Leaves - Joseph Kosma / Johnny Mercer / Jacques Prévert 04:41
  • 4 Wayfaring Stranger - Traditional - 04:26
  • 5 Songbird - Christine McVie - 03:43
  • 6 Time Is a Healer - Diane Scanlon - 04:16 
  • 7 I Know You By Heart - Eve Nelson / Diane Scanlon - 03:59 
  • 8 People Get Ready - Curtis Mayfield - 03:16 
  • 9 Oh, Had I a Golden Thread - Pete Seeger - 04:49 
  • 10 Over the Rainbow - Harold Arlen / E.Y. "Yip" Harburg -04:57 

here's an all music review for those not familiar

Quote

 

AllMusic Review by Scott Taylor  [-]

Though many recording artists meld and straddle a variety of genres, few if any defy categorization by excelling in so many disparate styles as the late Eva Cassidy. The diverse offerings from the evocative thrush from Washington, D.C. -- who died tragically of melanoma in 1996 at age 33 -- run the gamut from the radio-friendly pop cover of Sting's "Fields of Gold" to a jazz chanteuse rendition of the standard "Autumn Leaves" to the soulful R&B of Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready" to her spine-tingling gospel delivery of "Oh, Had I a Golden Thread." Cassidy's mastery of each is perhaps best evidenced by the fact that the Washington Area Music Association honored her (in 1996) as Best Female Vocalist in four separate categories: blues, contemporary jazz, traditional jazz, and roots rock/traditional R&B, in addition to naming her Artist of the Year, and her then-current release, Live at Blues Alley, Album of the Year. Songbird is a posthumous anthology culled from that album and her other solo release, Eva by Heart, along with one track from her 1992 duet album with Chuck Brown titled The Other Side. Though the production value on several songs falls well short of state of the art, the shimmering beauty of her crystal-clear voice, combined with her seemingly limitless range and imaginative phrasing, cuts through to both heart and soul. Whether she beckons a soothing timbre for seductively restrained passages or shakes the rafters by unleashing her formidable power and gorgeous falsetto, Cassidy's warblings always fuse her purity of tone with a purity of emotion and a palpable connection with the lyric. Though the songs described above are luscious, the coup de maître is the album's finale -- surely one of the great recordings in popular music of the time -- Cassidy's stunning version of "Over the Rainbow." Recorded with only her own accompaniment on acoustic guitar, keyboards, and synthesizer, Cassidy's voice swoops and soars over a musical panorama -- though with a wistful, melancholic shading that almost seems to betray a premonition of her own demise, despite the fact that it would be nearly four years before she would be diagnosed with her terminal illness. Cassidymore than rearranges the Judy Garland classic -- she reinvents it. The song is immediately familiar, yet the beautiful colors that arc the sky are very much hers. In an eerie coincidence, if one inverts the two words contained in the album's title, Songbird (which was taken from her straightforward rendition of the Fleetwood Mac cut), the result is "Bird Song." The irony is that "Bird Song" is the title of the Grateful Dead's ode to another phenomenal woman singer whose melodious flight was tragically cut short: Janis Joplin. One could argue that its lyrics and sentiment are equally apropos of Eva Cassidy.

16.27: With all this talk of rap and so many familiar even to a square like me, I'm a little surprised  Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's ONLY album, The Message (1982/2010), was still available.  The one-time DJ friend of mine that introduced us to INXS also introduced us to Flash and company. This album (picking the "expanded edition" released in 2010 since it's the only album version that includes one of my choices (I double-checked Spotify, and while this particular iteration of the LP isn't there, the song is):

The Message
