I am always shocked when Randy even talks about music so i wouldnt really put too thought into randys comments on any music topics
Seriously though, the subject of live albums came up and your first two hits were The Allman Bros. and Skynyrd. I like Simple Man as much as the next guy, but this is some serious white boy shit.
I love Frampton Comes Alive as far as live albums go. The Yeasayer live album that came out a couple years ago is also very good. It captures their sound really well which is where the band excels imo.
Another great James Brown live record - Love Power Peace Live At the Olympia, Paris, 1971
Wilco - Kicking Television
NOFX - I Heard They Suck Live
Pink Floyd - Pulse, Is There Anybody Out There?
THE WHO - LIVE AT LEEDS
How about.... Family Values Tour 97? That was the first live album I accepted back in middle school, and it's still pretty cool thinking back on it.
mark mcguire is no longer in Emeralds. not going to lie... but i think this is probably a good thing re their music.
i imagine they just came to the realization that him being across the country just wasn't working out... excited for the tour.
Yeah, his moving to Portland had a noticeable impact on the band's momentum. I've always liked the interplay between his guitar-playing and the synth work by the other two - to me, it's become the band's most distinctive element - but anything that theoretically frees them to go in further new directions has to at least be perceived as a potential benefit.
i loved his guitar playing on the earlier releases... but on their last two records it has gotten way too noodley for me. i started getting tired of it really, really quickly. bring on the new tunes i say!
Old, but still strikingly bizarre.
Holy shit! I had always wondered who did this song, and having never really listened to The Sonics before I just looked them up on Spotify and just stumbled upon it. Fuck yeah. I love this song.
Alright. Three things.
1. That song is not by the Sonics but by Link Wray, who is responsible for some of the greatest instrumental rock of the 60s and fuck it some of the purest rock of all time.
2. The Sonics are fucking awesome, even if they aren't responsible for "Rumble." Some of the rawest, most deranged and durable garage rock of all time.
3. I'm not sure if I pity you or am jealous of you for all the stuff you missed as a teenager.
Look people, if you've made it this far being a rock fan without hearing the entirety of the first Nuggets box set, stop whatever nonsense you're doing and get on that. Once you've absorbed that into your system, you can join back in the conversation about music things. Aside from the Beatles, it's the Rosetta Stone for all 3 minute pop songs with guitars made in the past 40 years or so.
Nuggets is pretty incredible. You will also be surprised by how many songs you know.
I've got this, Bryan. A low bit rate rip, but not exactly the highest fidelity stuff in the first place. I'll group it later.
Slight subject change:
I fucking love The Pogues. Rum, Sodomy & the Lash is so great. Irish music in general embodies so much of what I enjoy about music; especially the communal aspects. It makes me happy to be alive.
