What can I say, we're a positive bunch. a-hard-days-night-george-9

(I, for one, do try my hardest not to turn things down – at least I'll "keep it where it is" if I don't want to turn it up. It has to be quite off-putting to be turned down by me.)

Here's a pre Zep Version of Jake Holmes' Dazed and Confused. 

I won't turn it down because history, and if I had never heard Led Zeppelin's many magnificent performances of the song then maybe I'd turn it up, but as it is I can only keep it where it is... I've been spoiled, I'm afraid. ahdn_paul_01

I've said turn it off a good few times so that would reset the volume on a handful of occasions at least.

  

THIS ONE GOES TO 11!

Re: tragically Hip
The riff is very similar to Ratt's Round and Round and the lead singer sounds like he's listened to too many REM albums. It isn't displeasing to the ear though. Leave it the same.

TURN IT UP

Oh my God how much I love that Mingus record. The opener is a BANGER.

I've been obsessing over this, as I've said in another thread:

 

If we're getting into jazz I'm hoping someone else will dig it.

Maybe it's cheating for me to respond here, but I haven't posted in this thread for a while, so I'll naturally take the chance to turn Trane up.

Love that drum pattern from Elvin Jones on "Africa" - sounds like two drummers sometimes. And his solo is really well integrated into the whole; it functions as part of the composition/performance rather than just a showoff-spot.

As for Etta...sorry, that performance of "Rather Go Blind" just didn't reach me. Turn it down (!)

This ones a no brainer. Turn it up so loud that it shakes the pictures off the walls.

I don't really expect this one to get liked. The production is so 80s that your ears will be ringing for days. Still, there's some excellent rappin' and guitar work going on.

It's not but that doesn't matter to me personally. I've heard the track a few times before. Had I got there first I would have gave it a thumbs up.

What do you mean it's not? You mean that upload isn't available to the US either?

Groovy and dated. Just like I like it. Turn it up, but not extra-loud.

Was just wondering if someone knows/digs this track because I love it:

Turn Herbie up, obviously. Groovy bass playing from Paul Jackson really makes it.

I'm gonna say turn Herbie up 2 1/2, please, (and he gets an automatic 1 because he's Herbie Motherfecking Hancock). It sounds like he's trying for another pop hot (his THIRD!), and it's probably the most florid-sounding his band's been since "Speak Like a Child." It's all very pleasant, the beat's good-not-great, the tune likewise, and he's capable of more. 

And turn Ms. apple01 up as well! A funky enough blues-rocker, and the keyboard parts felt very Beatlesque (but doesn't everything?)

Oh yeah Secrets is a forgotten masterpiece as well as his other two albums with the Headhunters. I don't know why everyone praises just the album Head Hunters without checking out his whole 70s discography, it's all just as good and nobody ever brings it up like he stopped making music after 1973.

Always turn up Belly to 11!!!!

Here's a 1996 track by Hazeldine, so similar vintage, and includes one of my favourite lyrics ever (as a hint, it involves Batman)...

Very cool track. Sounds like something I would add to my road-trip mix, if I do have a road-trip mix. Turn it up.

My selection: "Judy is a Punk" by the Ramones
