Currently listening to some of my favourite Miles Davis tracks to celebrate the fact that I hit 1000 plays for him on Last FM, which I've been using for the past year or so. Right now I'm on perhaps my favourite track from Bitches Brew, along with 'Miles Runs The Voodoo Down':

I’m more of a “The Little Blue Frog guy myself, as I find even Pharoah’s Dance to have more of a groove than Bitches Brew, however I do appreciate the way that Miles seems to combine the idea of free jazz with psychedelic rock in a way only he could do.

For sure. I know he dismissed free jazz as largely the realm of black musicians trying to cater to white critics, but I think he did draw influence from it for Bitches Brew. And yeah, I find those first two tracks to be the most challenging on the record, but if I'm in the right mood (i.e. stoned* and speculative) they can be just the thing a-hard-days-night-john-6

Was: About half of Let's Dance by David 'Oh shit it's the 80's now, what do I do?' Bowie
Am: The most David 'I'm a Cracked Actor now' Bowieish songs from Labyrinth
Next: The only bits of David 'Oh shit it's the 80's now what the feck am I doing here' Bowie's career that I can stand - 'Loving The Alien', 'Time Will Crawl', and 'Zeroes'

After that, I'm skipping Tin Machine (sorry) straight to bits and pieces from David 'Transcendental' Bowie's The Buddha of Suburbia (1993) (which has probably my favorite Bowiesong of all time, 'Untitled No. 1') and then most of Black Tie White Noise (1993) by newlywed David 'So happy people want to strangle me most of the time' Bowie. I'll probably be forced by Time (he's waiting in the wings, he speaks of senseless things) to stop there for today.

I'll pick up where I left off on Friday, after a glorious Pageday of GETTING THE LED OUT tomorrow ahdn_john_08_gif

I didn't get through as much Bowie as I'd hoped today.....I had to take a break for swim practice. ahdn_paul_01

But I just finished Hunky Dory (I hate how behind I am. Stupid responsibilities...) and plan on stretching Bowiefest out until Friday. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif I'm going to bed now, but I will start my morning off fresh by listening to Ziggy all through-out the car-ride to school, homeroom, and physics class.

Now that it is Jimmy Page's birthday I must take a break from Bowie till tomorrow... so LET THE ZEPPATHON BEGIN beatlemaniacs_02_gif

I've never actually done the Zeppathon -- the binge-listening rite of passage where you listen to all of Led Zeppelin's albums in one go -- and after my mammoth Bowiebinge yesterday, I feel like today is the perfect day to do it. I think Jimmy would approve. ahdn_george_06

So, with that end in mind, I am currently listening to Led Zeppelin's first album, with the rest of their studio albums (except Coda) queued up... ahdn_john_08_gifahdn_john_08_gifahdn_john_08_gif

Hmmmmmm I should probably continue my exploration and education of the Led Zep discography but I already started Ziggy.....Oh well I'll finish that up and then I think I will also take a Bowie break and start my Zep journey where I left off and go off on my own Zeppathon in honor of Jimmy Pagejohn-lennon-salute_gifjohn-lennon-salute_gif 

Now:

Open following for a rambling about Led Zep:

Okay, but Led Zeppelin III was absolutely positively terrific and is definitely my favorite album so far. I loved every single song on it and I especially loved the acoustic-based and folkish songs (To quote Brand New, I'm "a sucker for anything acoustic...."). "Tangerine" was lovely, "Out on the Tiles" and "Celebration Day" were awesome, and of course I was already familiar with "Immigrant Song" (partly due to Shrek and also the fact that I can play it on trumpet and have performed it with the University of Pittsburgh marching band  which was extremely cool and I'm def gonna dig up the sheet music for it tonight....)

But anyways......

Now:

Led Zeppelin IV-- Led Zeppelin

Next:

Houses of the Holy-- Led Zeppelin

^ENJOY. It's SO GOOD (as Plant expresses at the very end, saying aloud what we were all thinking a-hard-days-night-john-6)

I've just finished it, and am on to the magnificent double album Physical Graffiti (1975)... OOOOOOOOHHHH *headbangs wildly*

Is "Little Blue Frog" on the box set?

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!"

Yes. Its got funky John Mclaughlin wah pedal guitar work throughout. I’m not the biggest Bitches Brew guy, but that song is sweet.

On to Presence now – we're in the home stretch, lads! ahdn_john_08_gif

I'm debating whether or not I want to listen to Coda. On one hand, it is technically part of the Zeppathon canon; on the other hand, I don't have it (which is not a huge problem, I have Spotify) and I don't generally think of it as being part of their studio album canon, but rather a loose assortment of odds and ends to provide some kind of closure to Led Zeppelin. Thoughts?
