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?

  

Well, personally I'd wanna finish the job properly if just for the sake of completion. But also because that way-expanded "Coda", especially shuffled on Spotify, puts the original to shame! "Hey Hey.." is a gem, and the "Bring It On Home" runthrough is a JAM. "Sugar Mama" is a funky little thang, "St. Tristan's Sword", a proggy instrumental that would've scarred Zep III but sounds fine here, the experiments in India (they really were the Beatles of the 70s! ahdn_john_08_gif)...yeah, I'd recommend a listen! I'd join in if I wasn't immersed in my 1984 mix, so Zepwise I have to settle for Honeydrippers, The Firm, and RP's "In the Mood" single...I guess Billy Squier and Whitesnake are pretty Zeppish, Prince's "Darling Nikki" too...

...and in the jazz field, there's this album by Branford Marsalis with a familiar-looking cover:

(An homage to his teenage favourites; nerdy brother Wynton preferred Yes)

Anyways...now playing "Roxanne Shanté, "Roxanne's Revenge"

^I'll definitely have to check out the expanded Coda, I love 'Hey, Hey, What Can I Do'. For the purposes of my Zeppathon I just did the standard Coda on YouTube. ahdn_george_06 I've just finished it, and now I feel almost as lost as Zepp fans must have back in the day when they realized Zepp was to be no more. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

However, in the interest of Pageday, and to move on from my Zeppathon, I've started Jimmy's solo album Outrider (guest-featuring Robert Plant on one and Jason Bonham on several of the tracks!) which my friend gave me for my birthday a couple years ago.

Yes, it was weird for me - I discover the magnificence of "Presence" in the summer, am amazed by the band and by the drummer in particular, then read of his death 2-3 months later. Terrible losses that year. 🙁

I've edited my post above, check out that cover!...(Now playing Styx, the much-scorned "Music Time")

Checking out Celeste, appeared on Glastonbury's Introducing... stage in 2019, BBC Radio 1 Artist of the Year, Brits Rising Star for 2020, BBC Sound of 2020...

What a fecking fantastic soul voice she has...

She is going to be fecking massive... and she's not the only upcoming UK artist that has learnt lessons from Amy Winehouse, here's another to watch...

Great people and talent out there if you explore...

I listened to Houses of the Holy throughout sitting through musical rehearsal (I shared headphones with one of my fellow stage managers because he's a huge Zephead. It was pretty chill.) and Physical Graffiti at my swim meet and lemme tell you I loved Physical Graffiti and it has now surpassed III  as my favorite (I mean I also loved HOH but PG got a few extra points in there.....) 

I also finished In Through the Out Door just now. I would have listened to Presence, but alas I cannot find it at all on Apple Music...I also would listen to Coda, however, I really need to go to bed, it's been a long day. 

Currently: I'm listening to the Something About the Beatles podcast (specifically Episode 17: "The Fifth Beatle-- Brian Epstein") to help me fall asleep (I'm weird and can't sleep without the sound of people having a conversation, so I just put on podcast episodes that I've already listened toa-hard-days-night-paul-7. It also helps me absorb more Beatley knowledge as well as give me Beatle-fueled dreams. It's a win-win-win!)

I'm so proud of you @lovelyritametermaid a-hard-days-night-george-9 it took me months to get through as many Zepp albums as you have in one day ahdn_george_06

I've just spent about an hour and forty-five minutes jamming to Zeppelin* and it's definitely past my (already terribly elastic) bedtime. ahdn_george_05

But first, considering the date -

*guitarwise. Obviously I've been jamming to Zeppelin all day.

^I really need to put more effort into finishing David’s discography, I’m doing a dismal job right now. It’s just so hard to make the time for new music when all the old music is sO GOOD! I haven’t even listened to the Ringo album yet, shameful I know a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Right now I’m listening to some bad 2000s pop (not by choice, someone is playing it in the vicinity so I have no choice but to listen).

Don't worry, Fiddy, I haven't listened to the new Ringo album yet either! Big oof. Do y'all ever get so intimidated because there's just so much music in the world to listen to? Also, 2000s pop is gross....

Occasionally I do feel a bit bewildered by all I've listened to and all I've yet to, but most of the time my focus is quite inch-wide mile-deep, so to speak, and I'm too busy devotedly worshipping what I already know and love to worry about it. When I've set my sights on a new-to-me artist, however, I do try to be thorough.... and chronological. ahdn_george_06

Just finished The Buddha of Suburbia (1993) in full and am on to 1. Outside (1995)... a curious album which I intend to abridge somewhat, but I quite like several of the tracks. As a whole it has grown on me since my first listen many moons ago.

Currently chugging through Scary Monsters, Super Creeps and after that, we're on to Let's Dance (TBH, I don't know how much of it I'll get through cause I'm going out with friends tonight...I'll listen to as much as I can while getting ready) and then I'm skipping straight to Black Star when I get home, for time's sake. (I would like to listen to Tonight but *sigh* there's not enough time in the day for me.....Oh well,  at least I've watched "Jazzin' for Blue Jean" twice last night.)

Was: most of hours... (1999) I find 'Thursday's Child' insufferable (the production is incredibly soporific), despite being a Thursday's child myself, but the rest of the album isn't bad. a-hard-days-night-paul-8
Am: My beloved Heathen (2002) heart it's in my top three Bowie albums most days, and lurks around #1 on days that call for a melancholy, overcast, pensive mood... such as this one. heart
Next: Reality (2003) -- I think of it as a sequel to Heathen, even though the two couldn't be more different and are really only similar chronologically. mccartney-shrug_01_gif

Highly underrated slice of 80s/90s jangle pop. This one could have been a huge hit, if it had been properly promoted, I think

It's interesting how the last two albums save one both ended with meditations on death: 'Heathen (The Rays)' and 'Bring Me The Disco King'. I've just listened to The Next Day (2013), and while it contains as many references to mortality as any other Bowie album, it avoids addressing the subject explicitly.

Now I'm listening to Blackstar, which of course more than makes up for it. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I also find it interesting how he gradually erased himself from his album covers, starting with his eyes on Heathen, then hiding behind a cartoon avatar on Reality, covering his photo altogether on The Next Day, and finally just adorning the cover of Blackstar with exactly that (an absence of cover on the record, actually, with the cover being cut away in a star shape to reveal the black vinyl beneath) and hiding his name behind fragments of stars.

Makes you think he did it on purpose. ahdn_george_01

Three versions of 'Conversation Piece' on repeat... it's interesting to compare this song, written so early in his career ('I'm invisible and dumb, and no one will recall me... The world is full of folk who don't know me'), with 'Lazarus' ('I've got drama, can't be stolen/ Everybody knows me now')... I think he always had a fear of living and dying alone and in obscurity, and in 'Lazarus' he reflects that, for better or for worse, he succeeded in not dying in obscurity.
