    Default February Finds

    This morning despite the -18 degree I went to the rendez-vous with idea to buy few records and to take some pictures of the records in stock. For not very clear reason the person didn't allow me to take pictures.
    And I took one entire box with CSNY and all around. Total price 153-154 euros (300 bg lev). Good deal I think, but I didn't listen yet the lps.

    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

    No Swastikas I'm afraid
    Haven't really given it the time it deserves yet - only really needle dropped it - but its much better than I was expecting given the year - 1972
    Lord K tackles his usual subjects of current afairs and affairs of the heart - with sex taking a leading role. Titles like Ah Doh Lenin and The Bomb might lead you to think that he's tackling issues of wealth distribution and nuclear armageddon. In fact he's wondering why a lady isn't succumbing to his charms
    When I get a chance I'll post one or two tracks
    He's backed by a horn section that sounds like it was in the next door room when they recorded the record.
    Definately a keeper

    He! Sounds nice - I would like to find some really good calypso because the artists appear to be quite nutty (in a good way). Unfortunately I don't like much of it - it's a little too happy and breezy, so if someone has some hints towards a "different calypso" I could check out it would be neat if you started a thread in the natter forum for me - so as not to clog this thread with such a discussion. Is there calypso that is more funky for example? Psychedelic? With weird freejazz outbursts? Or something else that makes it stick out while still retaining the "authentic" nutiness?

    I'd be interested to hear your thoughts when you have listened to a few; May I be so bold to suggest you focus on these to begin with...

    Tonights the Night
    On The Beach
    Time Fades Away

    The doom trilogy; all damn near perfect. Probably his creative peak. TTN has to be one of the best records ever made.

    Then...

    Rust Never Sleeps, just try not to think about Cobain.
    Hawks and Doves, overlooked gem.
    Everybody Knows..., came back to this recently and, well it was always good, but now seems a more complete record.

    After that, Zuma; and Mr Soul off Journey Through The Past (what an odd record). The rest will wait.

    At first I bought records, then I started to collect records; now I merely accumulate records.

    I know what you mean. Taken in context (pop band get studio time to do whatever they please) it is pretty damn good though.

    Found this a couple of times in charity shops here, I think it is a great album, Paul Revere fans obviously did not.

    Nonono - the absolutely first thing you should do is pick out Zuma and listen to Cortez the Killer. Over and over. Nevermind the other tracks for now. That song alone should keep you occupied for a couple of days. One of the best songs ever written imo.

    Very true, I should have not dismissed these two.

    Well, yes. If I had one criticism of Young it is that there is sometimes a weaker track on an LP that can diminish the whole. Cortez is a track that can take years to reveal all it's subtleties, certainly stands up to repeated playing. TTN is one of the few records (by anyone ever) that is perfect from end to end, IMO.

    The fact is you could shut up shop for a month and emerge yourself in these records.

    At first I bought records, then I started to collect records; now I merely accumulate records.

    I agree but a VG+er should put Trans on top of the pile.
