I wonder if we are currently the only people on earth vibing on Moe Tucker.

Dingle Lad said 

I honor her work but she's one of those who's politics are horrible. It makes it hard (but not impossible) for me to vibe on her

I had no idea @Dingle Lad. I'm not sure I even knew she was still alive. Occasionally I read stories about Nico in the comments section of a Jackson Browne forum, which make me vibe on Moe and company.

Sadly Nico herself's politics (if you could call it that, it's more like open bigotry bred into her due to her upbringing in Nazi Germany) weren't much better. Shame that musicians so revolutionary in their approach and form can leave such a sour taste in one's mouth when reading more into them as people.

Anyways, I've been on a bit of an explore of RateYourMusic's jazz chart tonight, and finished up some albums that I'd only heard singular tracks from. So far it's been McCoy Tyner's Sahara, Alice Coltrane's Ptah the El Daoud, Alice and Joe Henderson's The Elements and now I'm about three quarters of the way through Don Cherry's Eternal Rhythm, which is the freest and freakiest one so far. I like it though, it manages to successfully vary up the wild cacophony with sections more texturally and tonally interesting.

"I feel like this is just beginning..." is the first lyric Stevie chirps out here, in the classic opener "You Are The Sunshine of My Life", after delegating the album's first two lead couplets to male and female backup singers, just like Prince did a full decade later on "1999". "Talking Book" sets a pattern that he'll repeat for the next four years and three albums, winning three Grammy Awards for album of the year (big deal two-virgins) between 1973 and 1976 (he releases nothing in '75, and Paul Simon famously thanks him for that.) 'Some love songs, the occasional mild social commentary (mostly "politicians are bad, especially Tricky Dick"), a bit of sap, some hard funk, praise for Jesus, etc. Moving back a bit from the one-man-band extremes of "Music of My Mind" (only three of these ten are fully solo), he adds horns and a conga player for a few tracks, as well as the aforementioned singers for a variety of voices; and when Stevie wants a guitar solo or two, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! No, but close: future superstar Ray Parker Jr., and also Jeff Beck (who will cover one of these tracks on 1973's "Beck/Bogert/Appice power trio supergroup.)  For the first (only?) time in his career, he shows his eyes on the album cover; he's photographed sitting in the sun, and two titles here reference the sun. (Previous album additionally had one, "Happier Than The Morning Sun"). He's never seen the sun; he only knows it's real because he can feel it.

Anyways, exceptional album, blahblahblah. Both sides sag a bit in the middle, but the highs are so damn high, and the segue from "Superstition" to "Big Brother" is one of my favourite ever, up there with "USSR/Prudence" or "Friends/Celebration Day". And the man's gift for melody is as strong as ever.

Since I really enjoyed Crack-Up when it was released in 2017, and Helplessness Blues has been on near constant rotation for me the past few months, I'm finally getting round to completing the Fleet Foxes trilogy with their self titled 2008 debut. After that I'll go for their First Collection 2006-2009 compilation. I'm not sure anything will be able to replace Helplessness Blues as my favourite, though.

Me too! What are your thoughts on it? Personally I'm loving it - probably my favourite of theirs since the debut, to be honest, and 'Brooklyn Bridge to Chorus' is now a strong contender for my favourite song they've ever done.

I have to give it a few more listens, but I'd say it's better than Comedown Machine but not quite as good as Angles (I have a weird soft spot for that album).

They've just made their comeback! Aside from a 4 track EP in 2016, this is their first studio material since 2013.

I know what you mean about Angles. It has a certain charm to it, and of course 'Under Cover of Darkness' is an emotional gut-punch of a song.

Right now I'm listening to this stone cold banger from Carly's 2015 album Emotion. The percussion in the chorus is so thrilling.

We couldn't pay complete attention while concentrating on cards, but it certainly sounded pretty in the background. (As did the Dolly-Linda Trio lp we followed up with.) I'm giving "Sky" a proper second listen now with headphones and tea, and it's pretty fine. I like the variety of tempos and moods, and Emmylou's voice is soulful and sweet as a peach, and the musicians are tops. Very nice "Coat of Many Colors", plus an unexpected "For No One ," originally by some old hippie band.

Very very nice album, mmm, thank you. apple01I'm only an infrequent country listener, but will certainly keep Emmy's catalog in mind when I need a c&w fix.

^ Good to know

Currently getting my #PinkFloydFriday* fix with the fabulously mellow Meddle (1972) heart

*I'm not usually one for hashtags, but for a while, PF's YouTube channel was releasing one video from the Early Years archives every Friday, which I enjoyed getting in my politics-and-news-dominated subs feed very very much, so I decided to carry on the tradition. a-hard-days-night-george-9heart
