Hello guys! It was my mix, for which I took liberty to borrow majority from Seltaeb HV mix, with some mine tickling! I will try to find original post and post it again!

Is this the post you're talking about? I see there's a mediafire link--not sure if it's still in place...

This one by Alyans is haunting me right now. See here for the relevant information.

I'm also still in the middle of Mystery Train, by Greil Marcus. Maybe with the weather cooling down, I'll be able to make faster progress.

Probably the best book I've read about pop. The massive "Notes and discographies" section at the end will blow your mind--if the rest doesn't blow it first. Grin

I'm not well acquainted with Tarantino's films generally but I really enjoyed Inglourious Basterds!

More from this film, namely the scene where Colonel Hans Landa meets Aldo the Apache (and "The Little Man"):

I like the way Landa pours them a glass of wine when their hands are tied! LOL

I've posted this before, I believe. Don't think that if you don't get any replies to a post that no one is bothering with it. Most people on this Board are lurkers who rarely post . I'm sure there are those who are checking out your discoveries .

Well said, E. As for today...

Enya is always good for soothing troubled souls in times of tragedy:

I remember hearing a stunning album of stuff by Son House years ago. Is there an album or comp of his that you'd recommend?

Sorry I didn't see this until now. The first Son House CD I got was one of the Martin Scorsese cd's released as a tie in with his documentary series. There were a bunch of blues compilation cd's made of half a dozen or so artists, and I got the Son House one on a whim at a used CD stores. It's a reasonably good "starter cd" with a basic overview of his recordings. It starts with about three or four songs from his first recording session in 1930(I believe), then follows with a few recordings he did in the 1940's for the Library of Congress, and ends with a few recordings made in the mid 1960's after he was "rediscovered". It's fairly basic, but it's a good place to start if you don't know his music. Unfortunately, the 1930 recordings are particularly noisy. The record label at the time was notorious for using interior vinyl.

Thanks! No problem with noisy recordings--they are a breath of fresh air in a world where so much recorded music sounds vacuum-packed. Grin

I wished to start new thread page. police Instead, smb. else did. Blah.


I quoted that Tiny Tim album to emphasize how good it is. & thus advised to listen to it addressing people in this board. It's selling album to masses, I said "folks", not "NBBF".

I'm very observative by nature & I see various posters here recommend stuff in various genres & the others very easily trust that boy or girl's music tastes & check said stuff, then surprisingly like it. Shouldn't it be fair to ask that people check music recommends given by I as well? Yet they don't. Is everybody scared I'd advise bad albums/songs? Chickens, ha. But it's real weird, since I don't think I've worse taste in music than those boy or girl. In fact, it may be better than many's. Surely it is. Then what's the matter?
/fair & balanced (if blunt) nice & polite 2 cents musings. Wink

Oh really, RR. Roll Eyes Remember that Psychic TV song you once posted--"Godstar"? Well, it's now one of my all-time favourites. And... it led me to explore Gen P's previous band Throbbing Gristle and discover the wonder that is 20 Jazz Funk Greats. So you see, nothing's the matter. Smiley

Anybody likes puzzles?

I have reader's block (again) so for relaxation I do sudoko puzzles. As Lizzie says, it keeps the mind going.

I love jigsaw puzzles too--I usually do them on holiday with my son and grandson. Then there's often a spare table that's not needed for anything else (this is a problem at home!).

Here's another beauty by Alyans (Альянс, alliance in English). "Na Zare" (At Dawn) dates from 1987. The reverent audience is every bit as fascinating as the band (according to one comment, "Every band member looks like individual artists from different genres and time periods lol". I really love that one guy in the audience acting like the song is his one hold on life. It makes you wonder what all those listeners are doing now...

Thank you so much for posting this JK . Yes, I love this song.
 I'm okay - just dealing with something a loved one is going through (look up term Sundowning or Sundown Syndrome).

While paying bills and other fun stuff, listened to an album of Carl Perkins - Sun Recordings. Very enjoyable.

My pleasure, E. I did as you said and looked up those terms. My goodness, it must be absolutely heartbreaking for you.

Carl P is a tonic! Getting "Dixie Fried" doesn't solve every problem and may possibly create new ones but there are times when it's very tempting! Tongue

More up to date now... I'm not the world's biggest hip hop fan but I find this duet from 2002 between Nelly and Kelly Rowland most touching.

Hey everyone! This might be a longshot, but I've been trying to find a fanmix of Heroes and Villains posted on this board awhile back, but I've been running into some trouble. Here's what I can remember from it:

. It was labelled as a "Feb. 67" mix
. It started out with the Brian dialogue "remember one thing: there's no rules to this", which went into Mission Pak, then into the first verse, which used the Brian/Mike shared lead.
. It had a vinyl record popping SFX laid on top.
. The verses had this EQ which made the drums REALLY stand out.
. The ending went from Pickup to Third Verse into Bag of Tricks, which then faded out. Quite a unique ending!

Sorry in advance if this wasn't posted in the right channel! Thanks!

Hi Scott. I seem to remember hearing that mix at the now-defunct Pet Sounds Forum--is that possible?

After exploring 1980s new/cold/darkwave from former Yugoslavia I'm since moved on to so-called "Soviet Wave" (Russian synthpop/new wave/whatever you want to call it). This was the first example I found. Forum clearly take their cue from the West but flaunt its conventions--love those wild synth flourishes! From 1985, this is "Lets Call Each Other":

I heard this today on an early morning programme of religious music. Kreek's Psalms (including this "Onnis on inimene"), which I had the honour of accompanying at choir rehearsals years ago, mean more to me since I visited the Baltic States and experienced the openness (at times, the desolation) of the landscapes there.

This is for NOLA BB Fan, who I hope is okay. Procol Harum's "A Salty Dog" ls her favourite track from 1969 (I looked it up!). Wink

I've long been fascinated by this track from 1927. "Court Street Blues" features Stovepipe No. 1 (Sam Jones) on stovepipe and vocals and David Crockett on guitar.
That was awesome.  Grin I'm a big fan of old blues. Pretty much anything from the 1920's to the 50's. My favorites are Son House, Robert Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson, Leadbelly, Bukka White...I could go on and on, but I'll quit for now.  LOL

I remember hearing a stunning album of stuff by Son House years ago. Is there an album or comp of his that you'd recommend?

Great list of songs you posted, by the way. Wow. And... I'm slowly working my way through Face Dances. To be continued. Wink

Another favourite duet of mine is "Don't You Want Me" by The Human League from their superb album Dare! (every track a winner).

There is one particular moment of The Little Match Girl that almost always breaks me, but I won't spoil it until you've seen it.

One day, but not yet.  Wink

I was reminded of this excerpt from 101 Dalmatians this morning. I've watched it many times with the grandkids in Dutch so it's interesting to hear this sung in English for a change.

47  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: What Was Motown's Best Period? on: September 05, 2019, 02:31:06 AM
The Elgins are fairly low-profile as Motown acts go but they recorded some true classics, including the sumptuous "Put Yourself In My Place", which has been on my mind all morning. Love the little vocal twist at the second "try it baby"!

Eeek! In my infinite ignorance, I'd always assumed the lead singer was a man like the backing vocalists. I only found out this minute that it's not. My sincere apologies to Saundra Mallett Edwards. Smokin

Enjoy your day--"la mulţi ani!"
