Very inappropriate and very funny... a parody of Grandmaster Flash's "White Lines"...

Necko, the cover of that Jack Bruce album really makes me want to hear it! Looks just like several of my favourite classic jazz albums from about 1959-61 with the abstract impressionist art and the big block letters. (Which is probably the effect Jack was going for in the first place)

Though it's not really a jazz album, it's available for free (legal) streaming here.

I know that there really aren't any other AC/DC fans here, but I had to give my AC/DC albums a spin after hearing that Malcolm Young (AC/DC founding member and rhythm guitarist) is in poor health.

Thanks Necko! (And whaddya mean, no other AC/DC fans here? I thought EVERYONE was a fan! And I'll have no further contact with anyone on this site who doesn't at least enjoy the Bon Scott version, harrumph. :) Poor Malcolm :( )

I just got back from Half Price Books, which has CDs for around 5-10 dollars. 

I picked up

The White Stripes' Elephant

Rush's legendary rock opera 2112.

Boston's last good album Third Stage

and Paul's Driving Rainwhich after first listen I like. I tend to like sad Paul (Driving Rain, Chaos And Creation) more than happy Paul (Off The Ground, Kisses On The Bottom) musically. He just make better music. 

EDIT: Oh yuck, there's a song called Heather on it. Deep breaths, just pretend it's about his daughter, deep breaths.

LOL! That's probably what Paul tells himself about his "Heather 4Ever" tattoo as well.

CURRENTLY LISTENING TO: Some kind of piano/violin sonata or duet or something. I'm gonna take a guess and say it's Schubert. (I really have no clue.)

(Turns out it was Mozart's Piano Sonata in C major - damn, I hoped my knowledge was approaching the point where I could listen to a piece for a coupla minutes and go "aha! Mozart!" Oh well, at least I got the "sonata" part right. Also the piano.)

The Beatles live in Atlanta on 8/18/65, only 3 days after Shea Stadium. They had stage monitors for the first time EVER and could hear themselves for the first time, and thus gave one of their best concerts.

I featured that concert on Fab Files; I love the "We can hear ourselves!" comments they make throughout the show. Too bad they couldn't convince the guy who provided the monitors to tour with them. Might have changed their feelings about touring, you never know...

No kidding! Kind of shocking he turned them down when they offered for him to do their sound for the remainder of the tour. What was he thinking???

Now listening to FZ:OZ, a GREAT Zappa live album from Australia in January 1976

Supposedly he was an Atlanta native and didn't want to lug his equipment across the country. Understandable, but still... his business could have benefited tenfold simply by that Beatles connection, which even in that tumultuous year of 1966, still carried some serious weight.

No other AC/DC fans?! Like Von Bontee said: I thought everyone was a fan! Bon Scott AC/DC rules. 

I adore them. I've got Powerage on vinyl; listening to it is one of the most irreplaceable feelings.

I don't know.  I just saw something in the "Overrated Bands" thread and made assumptions.

I also have Powerage on vinyl, as well as Let There Be Rock.

Just was Boston. Think I might put in 2112 next.

Nope, not a big AC/DC fan. I think it's the voice, 'cause I do enjoy a few songs.

I like Back In Black well enough, but I haven't heard any of their other stuff. I did see a charming album cover of theirs featuring Mr. Young stabbing himself with his guitar.

My Corinne Bailey Rae Pandora station, which gets more awesome the longer I listen to it. It plays a lot of Melody Gardot, India Arie, Adele, Amy Winehouse and Amel Larrieux.

BTW, is anyone else on Pandora? We could share stations.

Product Details

Nice album, with George on four of the tracks so it fits here well.  This was recorded in 1990 during the Wilbury years and has their flavour on some of the tracks; but as the liner notes say it is an eclectic mix overall, nary an ELO string in sight.
