Listening to this album, which makes a cameo appearance early in “Get Back ” amongst a few other George purchases, (none other of which I can identify). Kinda interesting that he bought this album release a full 18 months before “Tears of a Clown” would be taken from it and released as a huge single – since the LP itself would already be nearly 18 months old when he obtained it.

I meant to post this a few days ago and forgot. It’s been a favourite,  not listening to it right now, but I love this with Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones

I’m currently listening to Disillusion by Abba as it’s Agnetha’s birthday. She composed the music and Bjorn wrote the lyrics.

Just popping in to recommend two albums that came out earlier this year, both of which I think plenty of you all would love.

First is Big Thief’s new double album Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe In You. If you’re not familiar with Big Thief, they’re a US band based around the awesomely talented singer-songwriter Adrienne Lenker (whose solo records are also definitely worth checking out for folkies) who’ve been putting out gorgeous folk rock albums for a few years now. At 20 songs and 1 hour 20 minutes long, it’s a pretty huge undertaking, but it’s definitely worthwhile – it expands their sound into psychedelia, country, dream pop and even trip-hop, all while retaining that pastoral, earthy goodness they’ve always had. It’s also got a really laid back, gentle, fun, unpretentious vibe to it which you don’t often get on an album of this scale. I’d recommend it especially to fans of Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk and our very own White Album . These two songs should give you a sense of its variety – 

The second is the new album, Ants From Up There, by UK band Black Country, New Road. They released their debut album For The First Time last year, which was an awesomely gritty mixture of Slint-esque post-rock and post-punk, with wonderful spoken word lyrics satirising contemporary British culture. If that sounds a little derivative, remember they’re a seven piece band which includes violin, keys and saxophone, so they’re capable of textures much more lush and interesting than your average post-punk band. If you’re interested, check out the song ‘Sunglasses’ on YouTube. Their second album is a different beast. It’s much more folk and singer-songwriter oriented, with early Arcade Fire as a strong influence, but what really sets it apart are the lyrics and vocals of Isaac Wood, who left the band for mental health reasons shortly after its release. He ditches his spoken word style for actual singing, and his lyrics are full of interesting repeated motifs and metaphors, which can range from funny to heart-wrenching. The band sounds amazing, too – they mix folk and post-rock in a way that I’ve never heard before, and it manages to be lush and gorgeous while still retaining its edge. I’m sad Isaac will no longer be part of the band, but I’m very excited to see where these guys go next, as they’ve got the instrumental chops to continue making some of the best music of the decade.

I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

Julian Lennon and Nuno Bettencourt performing a song Julian said he would never perform…

The War on Ukraine is an unimaginable tragedy… As a human, and as an artist, I felt compelled to respond in the most significant way I could.

So today, for the first time ever, I publicly performed my Dad’s song, IMAGINE.

Why now, after all these years? – I had always said, that the only time I would ever consider singing ‘IMAGINE’ would be if it was the ‘End of the World’…

But also because his lyrics reflect our collective desire for peace worldwide. Because within this song, we’re transported to a space, where love and togetherness become our reality, if but for a moment in time…

The song reflects the light at the end of the tunnel, that we are all hoping for…

As a result of the ongoing murderous violence, millions of innocent families, have been forced to leave the comfort of their homes, to seek asylum elsewhere.

I’m calling on world leaders and everyone who believes in the sentiment of IMAGINE, to stand up for refugees everywhere! Please advocate and donate from the heart. #StandUpForUkraine

 — Julian Lennon

Julian’s done other songs by his dad, but never gone near this one until now. It’s a moment.

Thanks @QuarryMan, this is a really good listen. So far I Believe In You is my fav song. Reminds me of mid-period Joni. 

It’s a little bit magic
Like a river of morning geese
In the new warm mountain
Where the stone face forms and speaks

Coincidently after listening to the album on youtube, the next time I logged into the forum I encountered an ad for a Big Thief concert just up the road on May 8th.

@Penny Lane   I used to listen to the first two albums (Music From Big Pink/The Band) all the time. Something quite mystical was found in there…

I always thought of Whispering Pines as the continuation of the Lonesome Susie story. I lost track of the Band after those albums. We have great used record stores in my area and sometime in the early nineties I bought a Band album called Northern Lights – Southern Cross for $0.50. The song Arcadian Driftwood sent me right back to Big Pink (what a bargain!).

The Band was the first album (of theirs)  I heard  because it was played in the house when I was young. Then a jump to The Latz Waltz (which I saw on tv, before the album). Music from Big Pink and  Basement Tapes I listened to much later. Haven’t listened to any other albums.

Yes, similar theme to Lonesome Suzie, but Whispering Pines is a  more accomplished, subtle track  musically and in the lyrics I think. The last verse where Manuel is joined by Helm and they sing out to each other is beautiful, reminds me of the Beach Boys .

 Rock ballads can get all overblown and blowsy,  but Whispering Pines is restrained and sweet.
