Counting Crows - Big Yellow Taxi - from the CD: Films About Ghosts

Papal Bull

Peaches - 'Fatherfucker' (album)


Kraftwerk - Minimum/Maximum (2-disc live album)

I saw them years ago at the Ricoh Centre here in T.O.  That was a very good show.

Papal Bull

Neon Indian's really cool album "Psychic Chasms"


It reminds me a bit of the Peter, Bjorn and John album "Writer's Block", but is far more reliant on the electronic. A smooth listen, some particularly catchy tracks include 'Should have taken acid wtih you' and 'deadbeat summer'. I'd really suggest getting this album and giving it a listen.


Also of note is Surfer Blood's first(???) album, Astrocoast, which is full of great and crunchy licks. I got hooked on the song 'Catholic Pagans' and haven't looked back.


John Coltrane's Blue Train (1957). Wow, could he blow.

"Let's Just Get Naked" - from the album relish (1995) by Joan Osborne (ex-lead singer for the Grateful Dead). It's loud.


Brian Eno Before and After Science. It is soft.

Eta: I'm now listening to Another Green World by Eno. A mature student lemt them to me yesterday. Turns out we went to the same junior high school at the same time. He is a year older than me.

Martha Wainwright  (2005) (self-titled CD) It's a great album, but my ears hurt when she does "Bloody Mother F***ing Asshole". Her version of "Ball and Chain", "This Life", "When The Day Is Short", and "Whither Must I Wander", on the other hand, are sublime, wonderful listening experiences. I have her new album on order, should be here in a few days. I'm in such awe over this musical family - her father, mum, brother, and aunt, and even the extended family are superb musicians.

I stumbled on this video accidentally looking for a live version of Poor Poor Pitiful Me by Warren Zevon, but it is also attached to an absolutely killer cover of Cadillac Ranch. It was one of those 'holy shit!' moments when I heard the song.

If you don't think this is absolutely the bestest song ever, I will fight you

Oh yeah, Zevon ... [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MRu8N2K0NY]AAhoooooo, Werewolves of London[/url] Way cool!



I've been listening to some great swampy LA music from Brother Dege, who is not only a great singer/songwriter but also an amazing writer.

I stumbled upon this: Top Pop Songs 1940-1969 . It appears to be all American, and if you click on the year, you get quite a listing.

Serena Ryder Little Bit of Red.

My boys love the Kids CBC version where she sings to Mumma Yumma.

I can't seem to find that version on the web.



Happy birthday Tony Iomi :

I scored a galley proof of a new Thelonious Monk biography this morning.

Listening to Radio Progreso's audio stream from Cuba

Unfortunately they use a very counter-revolutionary format "Windows Media Player" and not only that ... even more counter-revolutionary Microsoft Media Server instead of http:


Well...as Michelle reminded me....Free Software guru Richard Stallman sez...the only thing worse than using an unauthorized copy of non-free proprietary software is using authorized copies of non-free proprietary software.


I'll have to check that out. Thanks radiorahim.

it's a beautiful day today too. (I know there was a  lot of anti-DNTO feelings expressed in the cbc nerds thread, but I kinda like sook-yin once I get over the fact she's going to talk to you like she never grew up.)

If I haven't already mentioned it the 'flower in my pedal' track by the same video maker as the above is pretty sweet too.

and praise is my essential spring time tune.


I saw this guy live on the Vinyl Cafe...outstanding!!





Thanks lepidoptera, and welcome to babble!

radiorahim and I are taking turns playing YouTube tunes on the power speakers he has on his desktop computer.  Here are our most recent selections (not necessarily in the order played):

Him: Heart of Glass - Blondie

Me: Rebel Rebel - David Bowie

Him: I feel love - Donna Summer

Me: Reminiscing - Madison Avenue (seriously, this is an AMAZING cover of this song, I love it)

Him: Sweet Jane - Cowboy Junkies

Me: Mad Donna - T. Rex

Him: Beast of Burden - Rolling Stones

Me: Telegram Sam - T. Rex

Him: Dirty Boulevard - David Bowie and Lou Reed

Me: 20th Century Boy - T. Rex

Him: More than a Woman - Bee Gees

Me: I just want to be your everything - Andy Gibb (it was revenge)

Him: Reminiscing - Little River Bed

Me: September Morn - Neil Diamond (don't ask.)

Him: Get Back - Beatles

There may have been dancing, but we're not telling. :D

I just watched another incredible episode of Elvis Costello's "Spectacle" on CTV - last year he had the best concert performance ever from Rufus Wainwright and his mum Kate McGarrigle, and tonight he has Jesse Winchester singing "The Brand New Tennessee Waltz" - one of my my favourite songs, ever - I saw Winchester perform it live at Ottawa's Le Hibou coffee house on Sussex around 1970. Lots of memories flooding back tonight.

Also on the program with Elvis were Sheryl Crow (she was great!), Neko Case, and Ron Sexsmith.


Sheryl Crow IS amazing.  Thanks!  That'll be my next selection, Boom Boom!  She does an amazing version of Cohen's Hallelujah.

He's playing this really neat version of Good Morning Starshine by Serena Ryder.

I had never heard her before. I'll be looking for an album by her.


Yeah, I like it too!  I'll also be looking for Madison Avenue.  They seem amazing!  I found that version of Reminiscing while looking for a rap song with the licks and chorus from that song sampled in it.  Never found the rap song, but that one's great!

We've been playing some of Heart's live stuff now, like Mother Earth Blues/You Shook Me and Unchained Melody.  Which of course "Led" us to Zeppelin's You Shook Me.  (It's like, Heart's a gateway drug to Zeppelin.)

radiorahim just played Back on the Chain Gang by the Pretenders and now he's playing Perfect by Fairground Attraction.  I hadn't heard that last one before I met him, but I'm hooked!

Edited to add:

Okay, we've moved on to Patsy Cline - I Fall to Pieces, and Crazy.  Which of course, led to Tammy Wynette: D.I.V.O.R.C.E. and Stand By Your Man.

And then we discovered, in related videos, Stand By Your Man by, believe it or not, The Blues Brothers, and the Dixie Chicks!

Michelle, my last gf lived in Winchester, Virginia, birthplace of Patsy Cline, and I spent a summer there, and have a couple of Patsy Cline souvenirs from my visit to her birth home and the store built around it. Winchester is a beautiful small city, home to the Annual Apple Blossom Festival, and probably the longest summer parade in the world of fire trucks. I have her Greatest Hits album and play it often.

Speaking of Winchester,  I've seen Jesse Winchester perform live in a small venue almost 40 years ago and hearing him again last night makes me want to build up my collection of Jesse Winchester albums (I have four).

Can anyone recommend which Sheryl Crow album to buy? She sang "Leaving Las Vegas" last night, but I don't have any desire to hear it again. She's a beautiful woman - almost reminds me of the young Joni Mitchell - with a great singing voice, but I'd like to hear her on some better lyrics.
