And I realize I owe a pick (two, soon enough), but please keep skipping me for now. Got work due tomorrow morning and my mom's in the hospital (not for the rona), so I haven't had the time I wanted to relisten to a couple of my pick candidates.

have you now on "skip until further notice"

34.33 Across 110th Street - Soundtrack (1971)

This is probably the best of the '70s blaxploitation films and certainly one of the best soundtracks. Bobby Womack did the "pop" songs and JJ Johnson did the "movie theme" stuff. Two from Womack:

"Across 110th Street"

"Peace - Dot It Right"

35.06 Genesis Live, Genesis (1973)

December 11, 1972. A bunch of buds visit down on me, probably for some dough, i don't remember. Maybe they were repaying the last four times they'd bummed me by inviting me to a concert when one of their party bailed. Five in a beatup bubble Volvo, a massive pot spill en route (not a pot smoker me, so this was all terribly boring), we arrive at the auditorium of Brandeis University late enough to miss the opening act. I got half a contact/social buzz, spooky music plays and out comes this guy with an inverted mohawk (racing stripe shaved up the middle of his head) and he's dancing around as a daisy, a pharaoh, a bat & an old man pushing a lawnmower for some reason. I dont get much of it, but it's original and the music has great build so, i guess, OK. And that was the American debut of Genesis and my introduction to my favorite musical artist of all time, Peter Gabriel. This is basically that show.

35.08 The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Soundtrack - Ennio Morricone (1967)

I know folks that don't like the music here without the corresponding film scenes. I ain't one of 'em, EXCEPT the title track (like it in the film, though) - I think that's because Hugo Montenegro's hit single version kind of spoiled me.

"The Ecstasy Of Gold"

"The Trio"

34.38: Van Halen - Fair Warning (1981)

With all due respect to the debut, this is the Van Halen fan's Van Halen album.

Sinner's Swing

Unchained

35.03: Zebra - Zebra (1983)

Another band that got accused of being too Zeppelin-ese, but they had a nice sound for a short stay and I think still holds up. Have always had a huge following in Long Island and New Orleans.

Are we allowed to swap albums if songs (at least the studio ones) are not available on Spotify?

Sure or different versions of the song, I'm giving precedence to my island over the Spotify mix but I'm cool with whatever. 

zam - if you would please - include the rd/pick and name of album you are replacing so it's easier to look for

35.20 or 21 Steve Winwood - Back in the High Life

(1986)

Totally forgot about this one or I would have taken this roooooooounds ago. Definitely over Glass Animals. I remember hearing a lot of this as a kid riding around with my parents, and my special lady friend loves his music. no idea how i forgot about this one. The rhythm section is so good and tight I had to look up who was on the album credits. Turns out Winwood did almost all of it. Excellent album that has fallen too far here so i'm gonna snatch it up.

If this is playing loud enough that rescue boats can hear Chaka's backing vocal on Higher Love I might just wave them on. 

songs:

Higher Love

Finer Things

Ooooooooh this sounds up my alley - both the movie and the soundtrack. Cats used as narrative devices always work for me.

PS. The kitty's called freakin' Gris-gris? That expression again? :lmao:

*checks*

"
A gris-gris is used in voodoo as an amulet or talisman that supposedly brings good luck or keeps bad luck away."

#themoreyouknow

 

It's a hard movie to find, but worth it in my memory. Wonder if it holds up.

@krista4 would like if she hasn't seen already

ETA.. @simey too, at least for her love of cats. And fwiw, not just a cat or chick movie.

PICK 35.21

PETER GABRIEL - GROWING UP LIVE (2003)

Whew ...I just had a sinking feeling a Gabriel live album was going ...after wikkid focused on him with the Genesis live album.  Really wanted the "So" album but with this, I get "Red Rain" and a song I love that isn't on that album.  

Songs

- Red Rain

- Digging In The Dirt

1 - Sunday Bloody Sunday

2 - Seconds

3 - New Year’s Day

4 - Like a Song ...

5 - Drowning Man

6 - The Refugee

7 - Two Hearts Beat as One

8 - Red Light

9 - Surrender

10 - 40

Besides Traffic's Low Spark, this was the other time Winwood seemed to be on every turntable in the land. Mega value
