u2 - No Line On the horizon
Modest Mouse - all of it
Echo & The bunnymen

RV,

Yes, I buy them too, though I've pretty much confined myself to buying jazz now.  I do need to correct an oversight and pick up Led Zep III at some point...

I also go to the library and check out tons of music there - you have it for 3 weeks and if you want to keep it you can save to windows media...

Baltis,

Where would you rank "By Numbers?"  I think it's a very much underrated Who album and I absolutely love the songs "However Much I Booze" and "How Many Friends".

That's easy.  The rotation has not changed for, like, 4 months -- but now I realize I don't know some of the titles haha.  I will have to go look later.

Pete Townsend, Empty Glass
Franz Ferdinand, forget the title
XTC, forget the title
Ting Tings, forget the title (but they just have one, right?)
Best of ELO
Best of Cure
Rush, 2112
Lou Reed, New York (very under-rated)
Beatles, Sgt. Pepper
Rod Stewart, Every Picture Tells a Story



Quoted from DarrenJamesSeeley
Jars of Clay


I like that pick -- great album, except for the last 2~3 tracks, where it gets kind of weird.

I might have to dig that one out and put it into rotation.


Quoted from ajr
Zebra (yes, Zebra) - debut


Tell me what you want!  I've got this on vinyl, if you can believe it.

Bert,

Love the choices of 2112 and Every Picture - have you ever heard Rod's first solo effort? Killer version of "Street Fighting Man" on it, as well as other really good cuts.

As for Zebra - I have "Tell Me What You Want" in GA, and let's just say I've been in touch with the publisher and performer and it looks good as far as use goes.

Black Sabbath, Neon Knights
Frank Zappa, Zoot Alures

Bert, Loe Reed, New York is hands down one of my Favs of all time.  Just saw Rush again a few weeks ago in Austin. Better than ever and I have seen them many times, but man are they on their game.

I don't own a single CD. I do have my iPod hooked up though. Pretty much only listen to audiobooks and podcasts. Somehow Bob Dylan seem to show in between though...

"Love Supreme" is great as well - don't know "Africa Brass", I'll have to check that out.

So I had forgotten that I ordered a Coltrane DVD and I found it unopened one day. Popped it in, and Trane is just playing, calm as can be, but wailing - and who walks out on stage and starts to duet with him? Stan Getz. Almost fell on the floor and genuflected.

Let's take this out of the car and into the listening room.

Although I appreciate the authenticity and ownership that comes with a CD (and giving something back to a group or artist whose output you value) I can't say I buy the fraction of what I used to. Like internet porn, its just too easy nowadays to share the sh?t out of it with friends and get all your music for free.

I got an almost full 80GB iPod dock in my auto so the rotation is pretty wide and varied. I'm going through my library at the moment from A-Z and deleting stuff I don't want. I'm currently on the letters M & N:

- The Mars Volta (De-Loused at the Comatorium & Frances The Mute)

- Mad Season - (Above)

- Midfield General (Generalisation)

- Miles Davis (Kind of Blue)

- Modest Mouse (Everything bar their first album & EPs)

- Mogwai (Everything)

- Morphine (Cure For Pain)

- Mr. Lif (Mo' Mega)

- Muse (Showbiz & Origin of Symmetry)

- Mylo (Destroy Rock & Roll)

- Nico (Various)

- Nick Cave & Bad Seeds (All his studio albums & some live stuff)

- Nina Simone (Compilation)

- Nine Inch Nails (The Downwards Spiral & With Teeth)

Needless to say, none of the above are getting the chop.

I also listen to a lot of podcasts and the occasional audiobook.

How is Cosmos Rocks MacDuff?

I have Return of the Champions on DVD but I have to say that Queen is extremely limited with Rodgers on vocals - they have to cut any song where Freddie was out front on piano, like "Spread Your Wings" or "Play the Game", from their repertoire.

Oh, and I have to add one to my list - been wearing out "Real Live Roadrunnin'" by Mark Knopfler (with Emmylou Harris) in the car...

It's quite good. Not Queen in essence, more like Queen backing up Paul.

Some good tunes, some not-so good tunes. The weakest part of the album are the lyrics. They don't stack up against any of Queen's back catalogue.

I was fortunate to see them 3 times and they definitely improved as the tour went on. These songs fit Paul's vocals much better than Queen songs... I think that's why it feels more like a Paul album than a full blown-out Queen one.

Thanks Duff, I may check it out...

And if these guys ever come to your area, make sure you go check them out:

http://www.almostqueen.com/

It is an experience not to be believed. Joe Russo IS Freddie - it's uncanny almost. The guy doing Taylor is spot on as well. I think they changed Brians since I last saw them though. The only limitation this band has is trying to recreate Brian's "double" sound on his guitar, since his guitars are all specially made. Other than that, these guys can play anything, including going off the charts deep like "Stone Cold Crazy" or "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy".

Excellent. Will definitely keep an eye on them. We do get some Queen cover bands make their way through Vancouver once and a while. I think the last one was A Kind of Magic or something.

For about two pages of this thread I haven't heard of a single artist. You making them up to appear cool or something? Two can play that game! Oh well, I'm getting old and boring.

Now, in my car I have handful of CD's and I like to think they are varied but clearly not "different" enough. I have;

Brahms requiem - fan of requiems. Second movement - if you ever want to hear menace, that's it.
Eminen - last album, rather like that. Will post a separate chat question on one song.
Professor green
Cold Play - a cold rush
Depeche mode 101 live tour
I won't mention the others 'cos they are really dull and mainstream

Oh, and....Kids like to party hits for Girl's..... Who said I can't get Jiggy with it!

- Deep Purple's "Burn" (love Coverdale's vocals on it and its bluesy-metal fusion)
- Billy's "Piano Man" (did you know you can't abbreviate Billy Joel just by using his initals? I just found that out.)
- Queen's debut (I was missing Brian's solo on "Great King Rat")

- and the proposed soundtrack to Grand Avenue. Yeah, I know it's a shameless plug, but I burned all the songs we want and I keep it in my car CD player...

And the music jammed in that thing is:

I owe one person out there a read, I know it and I promice to get to it. It's just that I have been living in hotels for the last month and will be for 2 more months. This position better be fucking well worth it. LOL.

I really like Within Temptation.  Their latest, The Unforgivng, is their best, IMO.  Really good stuff and shockingly catchy...and quite a cool little concept album with great vids as well.

Also, have you heard Delain?  Another Euro Symph female fronted group.  Not really symph, but IMO, very, very good and underrated.

I'll play along.  Got my tax refunds so decided to buy some CD's I've been after.

Just pulled the last 3 Queensryche efforts out of the CD changer - Take Cover, American Soldier, and Dedicated to Chaos - all not bad, but not great, either - better than the horrendous reviews they've received, though..

Also purchased all the 2010/2011 Digipack Remasters of all 11 of Savatage's studio releases.  Wow, so good to remember why they're 1 of my top 5 favorites of all time, and also not so good to remember why Fight for the Rock was such a disaster and really derailed their early "success".

But now, I just loaded in the following...

1)  Axel Rudi Pell - The Crest (2010)
2)  Axel Rudi Pell - Circle of the Oath (2012)
3)  Jack Blades - Rock 'N' Roll Ride (2012)
4)  H.E.A.T. - Address the Nation (2012)
5)  Unisonic - S/T (2012) - UNFUCKINGBELIEVABLE!!!!!!
6)  Flying Colors - S/T (2012)

And I have this strange feeling that probably literally no one has a clue who any of these peeps are.

No, I believe in buying CD's and supporting the artists that create the music on the CD's.  I am completely against pirating music and continually bitch at friends who do this.

I also really like having the actual CD, especially DigiPacks and DigiBooks.  I frequently spend an extra $10 or more to get the special limited edition Digi's.

The bands I listen to don't have a huge following. You don't find their music in Wallmart or wherever.  They need every dime they can make and I for 1 will support them anyway I can, and right now, that comes down to plunking down $15-$30 for their releases.

thanks to bit torrent i have been able to listen to and discover music that normally i would never just out-right buy. i simply cant afford to do it.

ive been turned onto more artists and have a much greater musical vocabulary through bittorrents then i ever would have had - being forced to selectively buy music only from the artists that i trust are going to make quality music. who wants to take a 15$ chance on what is probably one-hit-wonder after one-hit-wonder.

Just listen to it on youtube if you're unsure.  That's free and that's cool.

The point is...at least my point is, that many just download music they know they want, based on already knowing they like it and want it.

It's killed the recording industry in so many ways, and is also the MAJOR reason that so many talented, lifelong musicians struggle to get by, let alone live the life of a rock star, like they did back in the day.

really it depends on whats more important to you - getting paid or getting known? if you get known - you'll get paid... if you are good.
there's more money in touring - always has been and always will be.

is Youtube really all that better than downloading music?

i mean if your primary listening station is the computer... then essentially youre just as guilty as those who download



there will always be many struggling and uber talented musicians. because making it big as a "rockstar" if you will - is about as easy as winning the lottery.

if you are good...if you have the work ethic... EDIT* you can still make money....reguardless of record sales.

hey a great debate is a great debate. its a debate because there are two sides to it... and there are positives to both sides when it comes to "pirating music"

as a up and coming musician... getting heard should be your #1 priority.... and the internet is a FANTASTIC OUTLET to that.

thats a little different. you have to register as a writer because people can steal your work... literally - steal it - and call it their own...or change what you wrote.

you cant modify an artists music... you cant change notes and call it your own.

No, no, and no.

I don't listen to my music on my computer and never will.  I said, if you are in doubt as to whether or not to buy a Cd of whatever music by whatever recording act, you can most likely check it out on youtube.  Then, if you do think it's what you're after, go ahead and plunk down the dough and let the recording act reap their $.015 or so for their efforts.

Pennoyer (sorry, I forgot your actual name), you are incorrect about if you're good and if you have the proper work ethic, you will make money - at least in terms of making real money.

case in point, 1 of the very best and most talented hard rock/metal/progressive recording artists of all time - Savatage.  These guys have been in the game since the early 80's and have put out 12 studio releases, along with a number of compilations and live recordings.  Critics and fans alike who are "in the know" will tell you they are a classic and easily 1 of the best and most influential bands of this era.

But you know what?  They've never had a platinum release and I'm not eve sure they've eve had a gold release.  When they toured on their last studio release, Poets and Madmen, in 2001, I saw them a dive bar in Tempe, AZ, and there weren't more than 75 peeps in the audience (hey, cool for me, actually!).

I know/knew their web designer and I know what kind of money they made, and I'll tell you it wasn't dick.

Now, to be clear and honest, many don't know this, but Trans Siberian orchestra (TSO) was born of Savatage, and is and has been thriving wildly since their inception, but, it's a different story, and they guys who struggled throughout the years in Sava, didn't get the recognition, star power, or lifestyle they should have.

Now, I can't and won't blame piracy on their situation, but my point is that talent and ethic and drive do not guarantee success in any way, shape, or form.

The music industry, much like the movie industry is driven by marketing, and what's marketed, is what sells, and what makes money and super stars.

If you think Nicki Manaj and Justin Beiber is talent and deserving of mutli million dollar success, more power to you all.

isnt the internet a great source for marketing? youtube sensations? having your product available to world at the click of a button?


and yes music is about marketing... and luck...trust me - i know. we're arguing a little bit of semantics here though.....and it was my mistake to use the word "good" to make money....music liek all art is subjective.

i was thinking of a little band called metallica who got their start without any help from the music industry... they got their start because their demo was copied to death and spread around like wildfire. word of mouth and relentless touring lead their their big break..... obviouslly they sued Napster... but since losing that public relations nightmare they have even since changed their tune about illegal downloading.

fyi i too once shared yoru opinions on this matter.

OK, Chris...it's Chris, right?

I'm not 100% clear on the Metallica situation, but I'm pretty sure I know what I'm saying, and if I'm wrong, you or or someone else can correct me.

Metallica was a successful recording and touring band...until they hit it HUGE and went to mega star status.  It was at this time that Lars and the boys made their stand against Napster, not before.

But either way, Metallica made it BIG...VERY BIG in a relatively short time frame, which isn't what I'm talking about.  But as you say and know, music like everything else that is subjective lives and does with what the public wants...at that time, for whatever reason.

Pirating music is not good in any way, shape or form and I can't believe you, being a writer and musician could or would ever say it is.  What am I possibly missing here?
Posted by: James McClung, April 20th, 2012, 12:46am; Reply: 73
I think what Chris was getting at with the Metallica thing was the fact that Metallica owes a lot of its success to the tape trading movement back in the 80s and 90s, where their demo got recorded on blank tapes and passed around by hungry metalheads, thus leading to the word of mouth that put them in the spotlight. One could argue that downloading is the tape trading of today. Not that I agree (I don't) but again, one could argue that.

Anyway, I'd rather not get caught up in this ancient argument other than saying I like to buy CDs. I just dug through a box of old ones from college and have since transferred a few to the car. Last I was driving, I was spinning Darkthrone's Transylvanian Hunger.

Downloading/Stealing music is what made music what it is today -- Shit.  The music industry knew Rap, POP and Hip-Hop dance shit isn't worth listening too... They knew that if they marketed it, no one would download it -- let alone buy it.  So they marketed these "artisit" in a way where they could still make money, even if the artist(s) albums bombed at retail.  

The core make up of the industry is built on a foundation of a few idiots who knew a little... they're dying off, the young lions are taking over and they don't know anything because the idiots who did know a thing or two tried to teach them, but they were too busy with their ADD, their games, their phone aps and other diversions that they said "Ta-fuck with it".

Now we're on the threshold of a big ol' ball of amalgamated shit -- And you know who's leading the way?

Katy Perry
Jay-Z
Gwen Stefani
Kanye West

Lady Gaga, surprisingly, is the only one who knows how little she means to the industry (AKA no talent)-- but also knows how incredibly stupid people are and how much money she can make off those very people.  I love her to death, by the way.

See, to be a musician, a successful one, today means nothing... You don't have to know how to play an instrument or sing.  You just have to know how to market yourself via reality Tv show or endorsement of a product or start up a perfume or clothing line.

Back in the day, bands weren't corporations.  They are every bit that and more now.  U2, not a band.  A corporation.  Kiss, not a band.  A corporation.  Aerosmith, not a band... a corporation.  The list goes on and on.

That is why even "good" bands, and I use that term loosely with the above mentioned, are sell outs today.  As a musician myself, played for over 17 years and counting now -- There is no hope for anyone who doesn't fall in line with the above.

Disney, Nick and Sony control it all.

A few thing to respond to.  I'm sure a few will draw some ire.  We'll see.

Mo, rap isn't even music.  C'mon, man.  Get real.   ;D ;D

Chris, the deal and difference in recording albums onto cassettes, like "we" did back in the day and going online and downloading any and all the music you want is night and day, bro...night and day.  Back in the day, a group of friends would go out and take turns buying every new album from group's they loved and each person in the group got to make a recording if they so desired.  Money was spent and a product was purchased.  That same group would also go see those groups in concert every time they came to their city, as well as buy concert T Shirts at those concerts.  Nowadays, people aren't buying anything - they're just illegally downloading songs/albums, meaning the recording act get absolutely nothing.  Are kids going to concerts like back in the day?  I highly doubt it, as most can't afford it even.

On top of all that, understand that someone like myself has also purchased pretty much every CD of every album/cassette ever purchased and/or recorded, meaning, I've double dipped and the recording acts have gotten more from me than just 1 purchase.  Hell, I've even (recently) purchased remastered CD's of CD's I already own, and already bought albums of back in the day.

But I'm a rarity.  Music has gone digital for the most part.  Kids today don't give a shit about how cool a Digipack CD may be - they just want music blaring out of their earbuds wherever they may be.  I understand that, but it doesn't mean it's a good thing.

Finally, I actually enjoy American Idol and its offshoots quite a bit, and have watched every season dating back to its premiere.  I haven't purchased any music by any of the contestants or winners, but shows like these certainly do a Hell of a marketing job and obviously many have gone onto super stardom, which is amazing...and a good thing, not a bad thing.

If you don't like the show, don't watch it.  If you don't like the music, don't listen to it...and definitely don't buy it.

But, if you don't pay for what you do like, you're sure not helping that act continue their journey forward.  To survive, any and all recording acts need support. Without it, they can't continue on.  No way around it.

i love late 80s and early 90s gangster rap...NWA, Dre, old skool Cube and Snoop, tupac, Notorious.... that stuff had bite, had hooks, and had substance. i stand by that.


and what i mean by bootlegging and copying tapes.... was marketing and word of mouth.... getting your music out to the world. that was the way back then. now its all about the internet.... and like it or not.... filesharing and downloading is the way it is.

i will agree to disagree on the principles of it.

It's just it's gotten a bad name since all these pussies like Lil Wayne rapping about how many bitches they fuck . Etc. Etc.

Old School Rap is really good, Tupac, Biggie, NWA and even Ice Cube. But then you still have some great new school rap as well, like Lupe, Junoflo or even Kanye West (his earlier stuff at least). I just don't understand the hate for it.

I still blame Lil Wayne though. ;D ;D

At this point, I think I've found the ultimate driving music, which is the album, Dopesmoker, by Sleep, one song that runs just a few minutes over an hour. I usually listen to it when I'm playing video games but naturally, it's a hard one to sit through in regular circumstances so if you're traveling at length and have to sit in the driver's seat for hours on end, this is the way to go. Simultaneously chill/meditative and heavy as fuck, plus hands down the best song about marijuana use in history. If you have a different opinion, I'm sorry; it's wrong. I'd change the rules if I could.

Miss you Chi Cheng!  R.I.P. and thanks for all the great music over the years.


R.I.P. Very sad indeed but the guy undoubtably passed very much loved and supported by family, friends, and fans all over the world. Just check Facebook.

Around the Fur was one of the first albums I ever bought and I think it's one of the only albums of its style that's held up over the years. Deftones have continued to expand and mature over time and will continue to do so with Chi's legacy more than secured.

Amazing how much my taste has changed since I started this thread. Nowadays I pretty much listen exclusively to blues - Joe Bonamassa, Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks, Warren Haynes and Gov't Mule, SRV, Clapton, Walter Trout, Johnny Winter, Tinsley Ellis, Screaming Cheetah Wheelies, of course the Allman Brothers, add in some Van Morrison on occasion, and I'm just starting to get into Phish.

If I'm in a Pink Floyd kind of mood I'll listen to Blackfield, Riverside, Steven Wilson, Opeth, Porcupine Tree, or Marillion or Peter Gabriel era Genesis.

Wow, someone else who knows the SCW?

They put out 3 studio albums and 2 live ones and then were done. Mike Farris found religion and is doing exclusively gospel music now - I think he won a Grammy for it recently.

The self-titled debut and Magnolia are two of the best albums I've ever heard, and rarely does a week go by where I don't pop one of them in.

There's video on Youtube of a SCW in NY about 4 days before 9/11 - and a young Joe Bonamassa joins them on two songs.

I know this thread is really old, but I was curious if anyone else does something like this.

My entire collection of CDs is ripped to iTunes, and their store is where I get new songs usually an album at a time. The playlists for commuting are the same ones I use for writing, so they're full of instrumental and choral music with little or no English lyrics.

Let's see what's in there... stuff from

Audiomachine - Chronicles, Existence
Boston Pops Orchestra - The Celtic Album
Clannad - Landmarks
Classical Thunder I-III (ordered that a long time ago from one of those late-night TV commercials)
Enya - The Celts, Paint the Sky with Stars, Shepherd Moons
Taliesin Orchestra - Orinoco Flow (effectively instrumental versions of Enya's songs)
Thomas Bergensen - Illusions, Sun
Two Steps from Hell - Archangel, Battlecry, Classics Vol. 2, Invincible, Miracles, SkyWorld

plus one song from Conan: the Barbarian ("Anvil of Crom"), plus some background music taken from the videogames "The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion" and "Warcraft II."

1. Tales From Topographic Oceans - Yes
2. The Button-Down Mind Of Bob Newhart - Bob Newhart
3. Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin
4. The Elder - Kiss
5. Throwing Copper - Live
6. Magnification - Yes

All of these selections severely date me.

I have somewhere near 1,000 CDs. Plus I get them for free from the library and rip them onto my computer, then drop them onto my phone.

For me, I've been wearing out Free lately. Fire and Water especially. Mr. Big and Don't Say You Love Me are my two new favorite songs. Both of them definitely need to go in a script somewhere.

That's what I meant by ripping it to iTunes, except you're probably using a different tool. The audio gets compressed, so my entire collection only takes up about 7GB on my phone.

Lately I haven't been able to stop listening to the Red Dead Redemption 2 soundtrack. I've never considered myself a big Western/country guy, but the music in that game is flat out amazing with a eclectic collection of talent. New music by Ennio Morricone and Willie Nelson? Yes please. Johnny Cash is also featured. Also, there's some rap music by Nas and D'Angelo, but it bizarrely fits perfectly well. Last but not least is the rest of the orchestral OST which is nothing short of amazing.

For other releases, being a fan of 90s rock music I recently discovered a relatively obscure grunge band named Pet. It was co-founded by Tyler Bates with vocals by Lisa Papineau and Tori Amos as producer. Cool as hell; I'm loving it.

I'll have to check that out. I know the Satellites well, that's a great debut album, and their follow up was pretty good too. I know the guy who produced the first one, he's the guy who produced all of Kansas' big albums.

I know I'm 10 years late to the party on her, but I've been binging on Alison Krauss and Union Station. It should be illegal to be as talented as she is. Voice of an angel.

Been wearing out Van Morrison and Bonnie Raitt too lately...

And maybe we can jumpstart the discussion about whether it's a good or bad thing that Greta Van Fleet sounds so much like Led Zep? Personally, I like it...

Yeah, Jeff's a great guy, he lives in my town. Or he used to, I believe he spends most of the year down south now.

He also produced Paul Stanley's solo album, which I think still stands up today as really good rhythm and lead rock 'n' roll and radio worthy power ballads...

We seem to have the same taste, so I'll definitely check that out.

Jeff told me a story once about when Kansas toured with Queen, and how they were all bored one day waiting to go on that night - and I have the details hazy because my jaw was dropped throughout the story because I'm a HUGE Queen fan - but he said Freddie wanted to go see a movie (I forget which one) and no one else wanted to go, so Jeff said he'd go.

And they could have walked to the theater, but Freddie called for a car (or a limo, I forget). And then there weren't enough people outside the theater, so Freddie made the car circle the block a few times until a crowd formed.

And when inside - I seem to remember the movie either being a documentary or a biopic - Freddie leaned over to Jeff and said 'they should make a movie about my life, darling.'

And so they did.

It's a good day to celebrate.  Not only is it President's Day (and a Holiday for me), but also, we have the latest release from the greatest band in the land, Avantasia.

Tobias Sammet is back with another All Star cast, and on the title track, we have Toby and Candice Night (Ritchie Blackmore's wife, and the voice of Blackmore's Night) in a rather tame duo that will have you singing the tune in your head over and over, after a single listen.

What?! How did this one get by me? Gotta listen stat!

I try to check new music (new as in current and/or music Iíve never heard before) as much as I can. There are five albums released just today that Iíd like to make a point of listening to over the next week. Of course, I have my favorites (usually Electric Wizard), which take up the majority of my music-listening time.

Favorite album this year has been Asterismal by 11 Paranoias, a UK doom metal/psych rock band with a Hawkwind vibe. Trippy and crushing in equal measure, not to mention varied and well paced. Feels like a proper album.

Well, I did start this thread 10 years ago...

Proof I've been around a long, long time... I think something might have happened to my post total when I changed screen names - oh well...

The library still has free CDs - and you can then upload them for free. Same as buying music in electronic form and then downloading it.

And CDs in thrift stores are $1. Same as the price for downloads. Again, just the reverse process - buy the CD as the hard material and upload it, rather than buying the electronic version and downloading it.

And you can buy a CD with an entire album of music for less money than it would take you to download each song individually... but, I'm a dinosaur, and I digress...

I'm still listening to the music from my original post in 2009. I listen to a lot more blues and jazz and jam bands now though. Rock 'n' roll, despite the Who song, is truly dead. As is the music business. Rock 'n' roll is now Country, Blues, and Jam.

So to that end  I'm listening to -

Samatha Fish
Joe Bonamassa, as always
Walter Trout
Phish
Gov't Mule
Tedeschi-Trucks
Screaming Cheetah Wheelies - best band that no one knows.

Some classic rock too...

Free
Wishbone Ash
Frampton (has a new blues album)

Old country / blues
Bonnie Raitt
Emmylou Harris

Oh and Greta Van Fleet might save Rock 'n' Roll...

And I just saw a new band with less than 200 FB likes at a festival. They're called Dr. Watermelon and they have some originals that are awesome, and they cover Stevie Wonder, the Dead, the Yardbirds, and Clapton, among others. Trying to figure out how to make them famous. My company owns a music venue in a major city, and I know a couple of people in the music business. But the music business is dead... so how do you get a recording contract these days? Don't know, but I'm going to try to find out...

I don't really listen to songs in the traditional sense. I prefer my music remixed... and mostly without lyrics. The music business isn't dead... we just don't get large companies controlling what we listen to anymore. Now artists can do it for themselves. Which is way, way better.

Been listening to mostly jazz lately, namely Vince Guaraldi, as per my avatar. But in the car right now...

Neil Diamond - Hot August Night

IMO, it's THE best live album ever made. It captures ND at a particular time in his career (1972) where he was just tasting some real success as an artist, but wasn't big enough to lap up all the acclaim and entertain solely off his name. His brand. No. Each track drips with passion, sung by an artist with something to prove - that he could deliver familiar choruses and catchy melodies on a different emotional level. On a level that deeply touched each person lucky enough to be there for the shows, and for each listener playing this all these years later. It's a masterpiece.

Glad to see that almost 11 years after this post was started, the dialogue continues...

It's of course morphed into a 'what are you listening to now?' discussion. Fyi - I still do buy CDs. If you download music, you still have to upload it to source in order to save it, and a CD is a portable source that can then be saved in to a digital platform.

StevenClark, I agree with you about Neil Diamond. Not sure it's the best live album ever, but it's an amazing piece of work. I've seen Neil 2x live, and the crowd reaction when he breaks into 'America'? I've only seen an explosion like that one other time - when The Who went into 'Baba O'Reilly'...

I'm listening to jazz as well, but mostly blues, which I feel is the new rock 'n' roll. Sure, AC/DC, Rush, etal. are making new music, but it's largely ignored. Even the Stones made a blues album recently.

Joe Bonamassa, Tedeschi / Trucks, Walter Trout, Samantha Fish, Keb Mo, Eric Gales, Mike Zito, Quinn Sullivan, Gov't Mule, Phish, along with classic artists like Free / Bad Company and Bonnie Raitt.

Yeah, this is like the thread that never dies. It pops up twice a year then hibernates.

I'm partial to Neil Diamond. My dad got me into him when I was little and it never left, which I'm thankful for. I've seen him several times as well.

But other than that, not much else except Jazz on Pandora. Good writing music. And as far as blues goes SRV is king as far as I'm concerned. Though I did just get tickets to see Cheap Trick in February up near me so I'm stoked about that. To this day CT is by far the loudest concert I've ever attended.

This was the same year they recorded ĎLive at the Budokaní, probably their most iconic album. It was an amazing show to say the least, but then again, that was at a time when you were allowed to smoke in arenas, and everyone was smoking copious amounts of primo ganja.

This guy, holy shit, this guy knows how to write a song. This particular album came out in 2010, but it might as well be late 90s, early 2000s. Such a distinctive voice. Love it.
