Listening to the epic version of "Afro Blue" by John Coltrane and his quintet (Alice Coltrane, piano; Pharoah Sanders, tenor sax; Rashied Ali, drums; Jimmy Garrison, bass) live in Japan

Recorded in Tokyo 11 July, 1966, 8 days after the Beatles left Tokyo themselves. (In common with the boys, this was Trane's only visit to Japan, and the story of his arrival at the airport is touchingly familiar - he had no idea how popular he was, and was overwhelmed by the large crowd of Japanese jazzbos awaiting at the gates)

EP, since you're on a guns/roses deep dive, I'm curious if you've heard the Replacements?

Me? I had Nas' "Illmatic" on earlier while raking; right now soundtracking the hockey game's 2nd period with Bowie's "Heroes" LP (different thread encouraged it) 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I have listened to some of The Replacements but I haven't gone too far into them. 

 

Have you?

 

Do you have any recommendations?

They were probably my favourite active band around 1987-88 (uni days), and I saw them in 1991, and they were pretty good; but I hadn't much liked their two most recent albums, and they broke up soon after. Then, I was lucky enough to see their first concert in two decades at Toronto's Riot Fest 2013, along with The Stooges, Dinosaur Jr., and others...amazing outdoor summertime show...

...anyways, their first two records are "Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out The Trash" and the "Stink" EP. From those, they progress from being quite punkish, to a little more eccentric and eclectic ("Hootenanny", "Let It Be "), then a lot more polish, a few lineup changes, and eventually the underwhelming end ("Tim", "Pleased To Meet Me", "Don't Tell A Soul", "All Shook Down".) Throughout, Paul Westerberg writes some great songs. 

My personal favourite from each era are: the debut, "Let It Be ", and "Tim". "Hootenanny" and "Stink" I also enjoy; but much of their later stuff doesn't appeal to me so much. The sad decline, firing, and eventual death of their original lead guitarist left a hole in their sound, in my ears. But that's just me...apple01

I've become a big fan of The Replacements recently. I've not heard a great deal of their earlier punk stuff, but I adore the Let It Be album and the ones after it, since in that era they do more of a song-oriented sound. Here's a few recommendations: for upbeat, catchier songs, try 'Alex Chilton' (a tribute to the singer of 70s power pop band Big Star!), 'Can't Hardly Wait ', 'Bastards of Young', 'Swinging Party' and 'I Will Dare', whereas if you want more emotional songwriting, try 'Androgynous' (which has fast become one of my favourite songs ever), 'Sixteen Blue', 'Here Comes A Regular', 'Skyway', 'Answering Machine' and best of all, 'Unsatisfied', which I think might be their best song.

Yeah, "Let it Be" is where they start doing more serious (proto-"emo?") material, and it possbly is the album that represents them best overall. But again, Westerberg was writing solid, tuneful songs (not all of them rockers) right from the debut. (Plus some obvious jokey filler...18 songs in all!) 

Here's my ranking, with my usual personal predisposition towards faster/unpolished/eccentric :

 

Let It Be

Sorry, Ma

Hootenanny!

Stink EP

Pleased to Meet Me

Tim

Don't Tell a Soul

All Shook Down

Thank you for this. I will give them a listen soon and see what I think. I guess I will start from the start and listen to the albums chronologically. 

By the way I am currently listening to The Talking by Duff McKagan's Loaded.
