Enjoying some Ronnie Hawkins tunes today. Who Do You Love, Goin' To The River, Ain't That Just Like A Woman to name a few. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=10DOMTXIeE0

Robbie's guitar kills on that one.

Big time!

Skylarking is pretty fantastic. "1000 Umbrellas" is my favourite track off that - such a great, weird arrangement.

I'm listening to Skylarking today. Grass and The Meeting Place are my two favorites. Super Supergirl is damn great too. All around incredible album. Produced by Mr. Rundgren.

Played this last Saturday night.

Judd,  I think "Ballet for a rainy day" and "1000 Umbrellas" work best as a set of tracks together.  I never separate them when making comps.  Hard to separate any of the tracks really.  The themes flow perfectly.  It's so psychedelic, this album is for sitting in the speakers.  a great place to go.

Mike,  Great to see someone singling out Colin's work as a favorite, "Grass" and "The Meeting Place."  "Big Day" "Dying" and "Sacrificial Bonfire" - some of Colin's best writing on any xtc project.  It's hard to grade a top five.  I'm working on it.  Andy was turning up with so many interesting songs too.  "Summer's Cauldron" would join "Ballet for a rainy day" and "1000 Umbrellas" as my top three Andy songs of the bunch.

Other than some of his own records, I think this was Todd's best production.  He brought a lot to these sessions, ideas and playing.  Beyond the tension of making a record with Andy in the room, I feel Todd was really having fun doing this.  It's quite a magical creation.  Both Colin and Andy learned a lot from him, and benefited from him being there.  Reminds me of the Hall and Oates record and his work with The  Tubes, where it really felt like he was part of the group.  You can hear it all over the place.  Todd leaves traces of himself on all his projects I guess, but it's special to me that I got to hear him work with xtc.

You seriously can't beat this.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Hell yeah! I freaking love this album. Down On The Street and 1970 kick my ass everytime I put it on. Killer, killer stuff! I love the way Don Gallucci made Funhouse sound. Also, awesome tenor sax from Steven Mackay. One of my favorite albums from the Elektra label.

If you do find something cooler, you should check your pulse because you're probably dead.

I have it. One of my random finds on the Internet. Quite a treat, if worth of 2 listens at max. Favorite track:"The Breeze", I just find it cool to have stress shifted to the last syllable ('housEs', 'rushEs', 'smi-yEls'...). It occurs in many songs I like, "At My Window" too ("he caaaame to myyy windOw").

Almost 40 tracks of Elliott Smith b-sides, soundtrack cuts, demos and other rarities with my coffee. So good. So sad. So good.

Ringo Star - title track to Postcards From Paradise aka
(autotuned or whatever) Ringo jamming a load of mostly Beatles song titles together and calling it a lyric *facepalm*
https://screen.yahoo.com/postcards-paradise-lyric-video-214009339.html
eta: these are genuinely part of the real lyrics

"and I aint going nowhere, man / because I want to hold your hand"

"I know that We Can Work It Out
There ain't no need to Twist & Shout
And I won't Back off Boogaloo
Unless you say you Love Me Do"

If you don't like it - fine, but you likely have bad speakers/headset.
