@Ahhh Girl,

It's been so fun and interesting to read your comments as a brand new initiate to Beatledom! I hope you will continue to share your thoughts and experiences, as it's lovely to see things through new eyes, both for fresh insights that might not occur to old-hats, and because it's jolly good fun to read! :)

Seeing as it's Zeptember I've decided to dedicate most of my listening time to Led Zeppelin. However I'm slightly disappointed with it all....they started out with this nice rocking bluesy feel and then moved onto acoustic work. Not that I don't like acoustic songs, but even the rock songs they did just sounded a bit lighter than usual. Anyway's I've just finished Led Zeppelin III so I'll move onto Led Zeppelin IV in a couple of days.

"White Album - My joint-fave Beatles album along with Revolver. They show the two sides of Beatles. Revolver's very controlled - even though it's also very innovative. The White Album's playful and almost ramshackle. It's like a scrapbook kept by a genius. Fantastic stuff."

A 19th-century French classical composer, Vincent D'Indy, and his piece Choral Varie written in 1903, for symphony orchestra and, interestingly enough, saxophone.  The saxophone (played by Sigurður Flosason for the Iceland Symphony Orchestra) doesn't sound jazzy at all, but almost like a clarinet, yet with a distinctly stronger and metallic sonority.

Thank you, acmac! I'm just glad I started listening to everything I could get my hands on before I read any post of what others consider good or bad or like/dislike. I am trying to avoid those threads and comments so I can keep an open mind. To break my own rule here, I love "Press" by Paul McCartney. I've lived in Oklahoma since 1997 so I really get into "Oklahoma was never like this."

Please Please Me is the next album up in my alphabetical list.I shall be entertained as I settle in for an afternoon of cataloging at work.

Nice - I'm doing them chronologically at the moment as I just bought the box set and about 20 other assorted CDs and DVDs.  Help is next up for me.

Am currently in the process of going through their 70s catalogue. I love the acoustic stuff, so I don't mind at all. Listening to 'Going to California' live at Earl's Court makes me shiver.

^ Been there, done that. :D I've almost got through all their catalogue now, and very impressed I am. Dunno why I've put it off for so long really. They were quite an amazing group, it seems.

I would say that Robert Plant is a serious contender for the spot of the Second Greatest Rock Singer of all time (Paul being #1, of course).

My ipod randomly came up with a James Taylor song I hadn't listened to in a long time, from his last album October Road -- an oddly quiet, meandering, gentle song, "Baby Buffalo":

Listening to a stream of Elvis Costello and The Roots' collaboration. I've never been big on Costello, but I like some of the tracks, particularly the song with La Marisoul.

I'd second that.

I've just seen the DVD "Sound City", which is well worth the viewing and there is the most amazing footage of Paul doing a track with Dave Grohl and others, can't recall who the others are or what it is called? (have to go back and have another look) but it was superb!

I heard this song on Pandora years ago, and was trying to describe to a friend the crazy lyrics about loving so hard that they passed out in the front yard. I finally found it again, and learned it was actually a cover.

"Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)"

 

Something about changing it from a boy group to a girl group really puts a fine point on it. :-/

Thanks!

I've been in a nostalgic mood for an a capella singing group show in the US called The Sing-Off (which is coming back this season!) and I found this fantastic version of My Chemical Romance's "Sing." Can't stop listening to it.
