1  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Post your favorite guitar sounds on albums... on: February 23, 2006, 01:22:30 PM
I know DI is considered very uncool, but two of my favorite guitar tones ever are Kurt Cobain's on Spank Thru from the Fecal Matter tape and Mike Watt's on his four track demo of Burnin' Up of Ciccone Youth's Whitey Album.

I'd say this is my least favorite Beatles album. Don't Bother Me is easily the best track. I don't really care for any of the covers on this one. I think it's a big step down from the first LP.

I loved Dr. Octagon a lot when it came out, but it hasn't aged as well as some of Kool Keith's other work. I get pretty bored when I try to listen to it these days. I'd agree the Dr. Dooom record is one of his better efforts, but I've never been able to get into Lost In Space/Black Elvis and to contradict Chris D. further I'd say that Matthew is the last GREAT Kool Keith record I've been able to hear.

Jason, since you've been following Kool Keith since Critical Beatdown, do you have a copy of the album the Ultramagnetic MCs did on Wild Pitch, The Four Horsemen? I've only been able to hear that record a little bit, but it sounded awesome.

I had to give the record a 2. I just donít take much pleasure in listening to it despite my love of the finished Smile. The live bootleg would get a 4 with the point taken off for the baffling drumming and the painful fuzz eschewing. I really hope I get a chance to see Brian perform Smile again.

Night Fever - I love the bridge on that one. I tried the single disc reissue of Odessa once and couldn't get into it, but I really wanted to.

Thanks for checking, Chance. I haven't heard anything yet.

I've copied my side of the tree from the old board for my own reference:

Oh yeah, I forgot about that complete studio recordings MP3 set you're working on. That's gonna be great. I've never even heard the single version of I'm Yours.

I forgot to mention that Kid Galahad was on TCM on Saturday morning. I hadn't seen it yet. I thought it was pretty good. So far the only Elvis movie I haven't cared for too much was G.I. Blues.

Also, to add to my pathetic loser credibility, I rented the 68 Comeback DVD earlier this month from Netflix and was unable to make very far into it. The fake stereo really bugged me. I tried hitting the mono button on my preamp, but I couldnít stop thinking about the sound and why anyone would bother getting the right tapes and then doing that to them. In 2004, even. Even, even. Sheesh.

I got a couple Elvis related items for X-mas this year. I got the Life In Music book and On Tour - The Rehearsals. I haven't absorbed the CD yet, but the book has been a great help in putting my Elvis onto my portable audio player by session date. Although, I still have to use it in tandem with the site.

That wasn't enough so I got myself the Kevan Budd remasters of the first three albums. I also picked up the Elvis '56 CD. I'm not exactly sure why.

Also, anyone know the best CD source for the master of A Big Hunk O'Love?
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / 1970's Beach Boys Albums / Re: The M.I.U. Album on: December 29, 2005, 12:53:27 AM
I gave this record a four. I think it's the 2nd best album they did in the 70s after Love You.
10  Smiley Smile Stuff / 1960's Beach Boys Albums / Re: Little Deuce Coupe on: December 27, 2005, 12:37:09 AM
I gave it a three for Custom Machine.

I never really liked the single version of Cottonfields until I heard on the LP version of this title. The whole record sounds amazing. The Japanese CD is a complete waste of time.
12  Smiley Smile Stuff / 1980's Beach Boys Albums / Re: Made In USA on: December 27, 2005, 12:32:25 AM
I've got to give it a five for being one of the better sounding Beach Boys CDs on the market.
