So be warned before you disrespect Manilow again--his new Number-One album proves that maybe my station's letter-writer was on to something. There really are thousands of his fans still out there. Today's Random 10 is crazed. That's the only way to put it. No human being would pick these 10 songs to play together--which is the point. Starts off normally enough, doesn't it?
Sad-and-bluesy version of a country standard by a singer whose default sound is sad-and-bluesy. Van Morrison is covering this tune on Pay the Devilhis forthcoming album of country standards. Not too weird yet. A fine song about growing up boomer, with one of the great throwaway lines ever, at the end of a verse: And now we drink our coffee on the run We climb that ladder rung by rung We are the daughters and the sons And here's the line that's missing And thus things grow a touch weirder.
Smokin' rock and roll meets gospel testifying. A bit of preaching to the kids, which makes it not entirely inappropriate next to. Not so much preaching to the kids as it is passive-aggressive haranguing of the kids. This must be heard to be believed. It's on my laptop because I had to hear it before I'd believe it. Keep in mind as you listen that it made it all the way to Number 10 on December 2, Then drink in the majestic weirdness of its juxtaposition next to.
Ayler is a major figure of s free jazz--a form that goes to a place this jazz fan can't follow. Unlike some free jazz, however, "Ghosts" has snatches of a conventional melody. Victor Lundberg would like the "patriots" part of this, I'm sure, but probably not much else. InLove Songs for Patriots was the first album for this acclaimed roots-rock band after a year hiatus.
Despite Monk's reputation for odd harmonies, this is as conventionally lovely as anything I've heard him play. Yer basic note-splattering 50s vintage bebop track. Sounds fine next to Monk, works OK in close proximity to Ayler, but makes no damn sense at all next to. Memo to all those Jack stations out there who are marketing themselves with the slogan "We play anything": Eat my dust.
During the full-time part of my radio career, I spent nearly 12 years going town to town, up and down the dial. During the last year I decided that my career wasn't all that successful. Yes, I'd had a lot of fun and done some good work, but I was still toiling in obscurity and tired of the small-market grind.
So, inI left radio to go back to college and start on another career. I didn't stay out for long. After six months, I got back on the air part-time.
Then the station that had hired me flipped to classic rock--and didn't fire me. For the next two years, I had the most fun I'd ever had on the radio, and did my best work, too. Byin many ways, I'd finally become the jock I'd always wanted to be--just as I finished college and was getting ready to quit the station and move to another city. So it's been over eight years now since I've done a DJ show on radio.
Every so often I miss it, and I think that I'd like to get back into it. This blog was created, at least in part, to keep those thoughts at Album). So far, it's helped me feed the jones. Every now and then a reader of this blog says they'd like to hear what I sounded Maria Muldaur - Waitress In The Donut Shop (Reel-To-Reel on the radio. OK, then. This is merecorded sometime during the summer of at classic rocker Q I'm filling in on the 9PM-2AM Maria Muldaur - Waitress In The Donut Shop (Reel-To-Reel, and this is the after-midnight portion.
We did a fairly uptempo presentation there compared to a lot of classic rockers, and I like this aircheck because I get to talk over some intros, just like in the Classic Top 40 days of yore. Be patient--it takes a few seconds for the audio to start once you get to Upload2. Many are called, but few are chosen. The phrase "world's greatest" truly applies on far fewer occasions than the number of times it's handed out.
It may not apply to their incarnation, but as long as their classic recordings continue to exist, Maria Muldaur - Waitress In The Donut Shop (Reel-To-Reel will apply in any moment you play 'em. It ain't bragging if you can back it up, and there are tracks in the Stones' library that aren't merely good or great, but that border on the miraculous.
These records feature Keith's guitar drawing blood like a whip I'm thinking of the intro to "Honky Tonk Women" or the first couple of seconds of "Start Me Up" and "Brown Sugar"or Mick's voice dancing on the line between menace and decadence as on "Bitch" and "Sympathy for the Devil"or the whole band locking into a supernatural sync that's the very definition of rock and roll "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "You Can't Always Get What You Want," "Gimme Shelter".
Any concern that stays in business 40 years is probably going to have its weak moments, artistic endeavors especially. And the Stones have certainly sounded flaccid or phoned-in now and then--most often, it seems, when they're playing live.
If you check their discography at Allmusic. Now it's possible that they may never have been captured effectively on stage. But with at least 10 live albums in their catalog and few getting much more than faint praise, I doubt it. They're just not all that good playing live, and yesterday's Super Bowl halftime show was the latest evidence of it. Granted, it has to be extremely difficult to play "Start Me Up" and "Satisfaction" anymore. One is almost 25 years old and the other's over 40, and familiarity has to breed just a little bit of contempt.
But it's more than that. When they're live, Mick's singing seems to lose focus--it's as if he's concentrating more on firing up the audience and working the strut than on getting the words across.
Keith's guitar retains some of its sonic menace, but with volume and distortion instead of the razor's edge he achieves in the studio. It's still rock and roll, but instead of blowing me away, it makes me conscious of how much better they sound elsewhere. As a result, although I've never seen the Stones live in person, it's not a priority for me to do so.
I'd rather play Sticky Fingers again. Side note: I own Strippedthe Stones' live album fromreleased when the "unplugged" craze was at its height. I got it precisely because I wanted to hear how they'd sound in more intimate settings, without the larger-than-life arena trappings of their other live albums.
It came out today that the Stones consented to the electronic removal of potentially offensive words from "Start Me Up" and "Rough Justice. Maybe, with all those bluenoses sitting at home waiting for reasons to rain down their wrath on those they define as insufficiently moral, the Stones decided it would be easier to switch than fight.
But then again, if anybody in rock and roll has the clout to tell the NFL and the Bible-beaters to go screw themselves, it would be the Rolling Stones, wouldn't it? February 3,was a Friday. The top movie at the box office that weekend would be Terms of Endearmentalthough the highest-grossing new movie was Recklessstarring Aidan Quinn and Daryl Hannah. The Challenger blasted off on the 10th mission in shuttle-program history.
And when you turned the radio on that day, here's some of what you heard, with chart numbers from Cash Box : 3. When Atlantic Records picked it up nationally, they didn't care about the band's history--they merely wanted more of the same, and asked them to write a followup about the Marx Brothers. When the band refused, the record company ordered them to record the old Benny Bell novelty "Shaving Cream," which they did--but they wrote a new verse that insulted the record company.
From there, it was a short bus-ride back to Chicago. The Mrs. Better keep an eye on her. She might become a star. Not quite as legendary as The Strangerbut a bit less burned-out today. So he probably shouldn't have invited Michael and Jermaine Jackson to sing with him on his first single--because Michael's appearance, at the white-hottest moment of his cultural relevance, was what made it a smash. I was never a big fan of Eurythmics.
