1  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: What Is Your Favorite Soundtrack? on: Yesterday at 01:16:18 PM
Forgot to mention that I'm also very fond of the soundtrack to the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby - which was one of the best aspects of the movie for me.... and they had to go and ruin it all on the DiCaprio version of the film, of which I've seen a few clips but am not keen on checking out

Aww. No love for the stunning party scene from the 2013 version?

Couldn't this be the Mel Bochner in question? It's quite likely, age-wise and intelligence-wise...

I see in the conversation he does mention a Douglas Wilson--but that's all! Grin

Did a search for "Bochner" and nothing came up...very interesting snapshot of that brief moment when everything and anything seemed possible.
ARTS MAGAZINE, March 1967
CRITIQUE - THE BEACH BOYS by Mel Bochner
"Good Vibrations is an inhuman work of art."


Wow. Thanks for that, ml. Your description says it all. And Jonathan King is a nincompoop.

But where's Brian in the picture? Grin

F. Rabelais "Gargantua & Pantagruel" - reading few pages. Eccentric. We'll see if it's good.

I read that many moons ago. It's hilarious at times but there's rather a lot of it. Grin

The artists I did like - Tony Orlando, Sylvie Vartan, Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme, Sandie Shaw, Dana, Marlene Dietrich, Nico (of course), Laura Nyro, Barbara Streisand's jazz/ music film material, various new to me 60s-70s names in Larry's blog. Maybe forgetting smb.

I remember liking Tony Orlando's "Bless You"...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DtgBZ9n6ak

...and Eydie Gormé's "Blame It On The Bossa Nova"...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3XHxtXjcatc

...at the time. I like a lot of Nico's stuff. I tried Laura Nyro but it didn't register...

Toward the end the Brian influence is evident.

Indeed it is. Nice song actually. I must hear more from this album...

Don't know if this cunts, but taping over Dennis' lead vocal on Sail on Sailor. Why oh why???

I agree, aside from a most unfortunate typo!

Well that typo certainly made me laugh, however the operative word is correct for someone recording over a Dennis vocal  LOL

 LOL

Yesterday marked the death 61 years ago of Jean Sibelius. The majestic Tapiola was one of his last and greatest works:

Been listening to the OST of Vertigo recently. Bernard Herrmann could certainly deliver the goods. Roll Eyes

Looking for obscure late '60s, early '70s recordings, I bumped into this extraordinary album by Magma. See the link for more information, not least about the invented language they sing in!

I only just thought of posting this. It's a lucky picture I took of my daughter's cat Kookie a few years ago:

12  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / Smiley Smilers Who Make Music / Re: Real Love Cover on: September 16, 2018, 03:08:49 AM
I was recently asked to sing background vocals on this cover of Real Love by Nathan Vogel:

https://soundcloud.com/nathanvogelmusic/real-love-beatles-cover-ft-mats-rojne-on-guitar-and-zach-wolfe

Zach, that's beautiful! How I missed out on this last month is a mystery.  Shocked

It's a gorgeous song to begin with but this version is sensational. Kudos to you and to Nathan Vogel! Smiley

Edit: I just noticed to my eternal embarrassment that I did hear it at the time and complimented you and Mr. Vogel on it at PSF.  Undecided

Thanks for bumping this, RR. I haven't laughed so much in a long time. LOL
14  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Old Record Parade on: September 15, 2018, 12:00:55 PM
The Stylistics sang some of the most beautiful soul ballads of all time. My son had this one, "Betcha By Golly Wow", playing on Spotify earlier today:

For the second time this year. With thanks to theSuperMetroid at PSF for pointing me in the direction of this beautiful book. Roll Eyes

I dislike the artists, songs, albums you like. Then there's the artists, songs, albums I like you like as well. Then there's the artists, songs, albums I like you dislike. Don't forget then there's the artists, songs, albums I dislike you dislike as well. In case you didn't know, it's patterns that take place now & then as well. Anyhoo, it's free board, I can reply I dislike or like sth. to any poster if, of course, the artist, song, album they listed is sth. I did listen too.

Fair?

Fair! Smiley
17  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Saddest songs on: September 14, 2018, 04:48:48 AM
Which pattern do you mean? I'm not sure what you talk about.

The pattern where I say I like some artist, song or album and then you say you don't like it! Grin

I believe you, but it's still a repeating pattern. I've come to expect it from you. Wink     
18  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Saddest songs on: September 14, 2018, 03:13:30 AM
I will say this - the Band may be among the few bands where I dislike each vocalist's voice.

RR, do I see a pattern emerging? LOL
19  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Saddest songs on: September 13, 2018, 06:04:01 AM
Not sure if this one has been mentioned yet. Rick Danko sounds shattered and bewildered in equal measure on The Band's "It Makes No Difference":

Happy birthday Al.  Keep rocking.

Yes indeed. Seventy-six years young! Grin

Except for the drums, that one was recorded "live" with violins and everything (Dennis overdubbed his drums later). As such, it's got the classic BW production touch, to me at least. Same with "Just Once In My Life" from that same set - I know others dislike the Boys' version of that song, but it gives me goosebumps.

Me too c-man. I've always thought JOIML was the best thing on the LP.

That's the one. Goose bumps all the way. Wink

........who is playing Dennis Wilson in the new Quetin Taritino movie now being made.

Hi Dave. I see the name James Marsden has been mooted on Reddit but there's nothing official yet...
