Wow, I was listening to "Talking Book" just last night! And "Music of My Mind" right before it.

Stevie was on FIRE in the 70s!

Currently shuffling all of my Bruce Springsteen. Waiting on a Sunny Day.
Bikelock28 - Yes, huge Bruce fan here. Saw him when he was up in Ottawa last week. I still can't believe I saw Bruce. It was unbelievable. As for Wrecking Ball - I love it. It is basically Bruce being very angry - which always makes for a good album. Songs like We Take Care Of Our Own, Shackled and Drawn, Jack of All Trades (and especially) Death To My Hometown stack up to some of his classics from back in the 70's/80's. As I was saying to a friend earlier this week - I forget how good it is, until I hear it. His best album since, gosh, The River. Slightly better then the Rising (although the Rising has what I have to call my favourite Bruce song - Waiting on a Sunny Day. It has so many great memories, and it's a great song.) I'll still take Darkness on the Edge of Town first (I think, maybe Born to Run), but Wrecking Ball is Bruce saying "I'm back."

I tried to think of something powerful and moving… and failed.  "You were given a choice between war and dishonor - you chose dishonor, and you shall have war" - Winston Churchill

I agree, I love Wrecking Ball. I wasn't expecting much of it becuase I didn't think Working On A Dream was particuarlarly good, but Wrecking Ball is excellent. My favourite song is Jack Of All Trades because of its blue-collar lyrics (which are somehow both simplistic and really meaningful) and its waltz metre. In my opinion its one of his best love songs.

I too saw Bruce this year, in Hyde Park in London. He opened with a slow accoustic version of Thunder Road- did he do the same at the concert you went to in Ottawa? I thought it was a really magical way to start the gig.

But the best, best, best  part, probably the best thing ever in my life, was at the end when he brought on SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY and they did I Saw Her Standing There and Twist & Shout together. It was the most awesome and amazing moment ever, unbelievable.

I've been re-listening to RAM, and I honestly love it more and more each time I play it. I love the way it's just upbeat, and fun, and it always leaves me smiling.I also like how it wasn't a very commercial album. Instead of making an album for the public, Paul and Linda were just like, "Why do we even care about what people think anymore? Let's just make this album for ourselves," and I've always admired that.
My favorite Paul album by far. heart

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8That song was out when I was in Year 5 and we used to sing it non-stop (as well as You're Beautiful)

And you're right about Ram, FlyOn13. It suprises me how the album turned out so light and fun, considering all the sueing and court cases and post-break-up stuff that was going on during the time is was made.

My favourite song on Ram is Monkberry Moon Delight becuase its cool and it makes me a-hard-days-night-george-9

I love me some James Blunt, and I especially love that song: I cry almost every time I hear it. When I first listened to Back to Bedlam in its entirety, I can't tell you how many times I replayed that song. It's just so incredibly beautiful. heart

The Who -- Quadrophenia

I'm seeing the Who (for the first time) in another week-and-a-half.  I nearly balked at the ticket prices, but any one of these tours could be the last time to see these guys (and so many others).  I'm trying not to pass up the opportunities when they present themselves...

Yeah, when Townshend says it's their "final tour", you know he means it.

There have been so many 'final' tours by artists and bands. I think Phil Collins first tour was called The Definately Final Tour and The Stones are on their definately final, no doubts about it, 100% certain final final final set of gigs - until the anniversary of the first song Mick Jagger and Keith Richards wrote together (must mark the huge events).

This.

Good golly, how I love me some T. Rex! Musical talent aside, does anyone else find Marc Bolan's hair as epic as I do? <3

The Mallett Brothers Band -- Lowdown

From my time lurking around these forums, I've come to gather that Zig is from Maine, so this is a shout-out to him:  do you know of these guys? 

They are based in Portland, Americana rock band (a little twang in their rock, a little rock in their twang).  The two Malletts in the band have roots about 120 mi or so north of Portland:  their father is David Mallett, a not-quite-unknown folk singer (most obvious claim to fame:  he wrote "Garden Song," covered by many, including the Muppets,  and a minor hit for John Denver).  David graduated from the same high school as and a few years earlier than I did, up in the middle-of-nowhere, Maine.

So this is definitely small-town/hometown boosterism on my part, but if you like this sort of music, and I love it, check these guys out...especially if you can see them live.

Happy Friday!

Hi BluemeanAl. I'm not originally from Maine but do live here now. I have yet to hear about these guys, but will look for them if I see they are playing locally.

In which Maine town did you live? I am in Topsham.

Zig, my post refers to Dover-Foxcroft (I also lived in Dexter), so 90 miles or so north of you.  Going north from there, it's pretty much wilderness until you get to the Canadian border...

Been listening to a lot of Pink Floyd recently. I never thought I would find a band/artist who I would love as much as The Beatles, tho I admire many, but I have!! I get a funny sensation when I listen to most of their music, it's hard to put into words.
