I put on the Suzanne Vega album 99.5f last night for the first time in years. It got me through a hard time in the past, but then ended up being associated with it. Happy to report I’m able to enjoy it again. Full of absolute bangers so it is.

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Saw a recommendation of this 1970 Supremes album on a music message board’s discussion of “psychedelic Motown”, so I checked it out  – and discovered yet another of the era’s soul LPs with a Beatles cover (gotta be one of the earliest “Come Together ” versions on record)*

*EDIT: I take it back – I did a bit of research after writing that, and discovered at least a half-dozen “Come Together ” covers on record by 1970, including a Count Basie version recorded in December ’69, three months after the original release. And also, I learned that Basie’s version appears on an all-Beatles showcase album (the Count’s second such tribute)…with sleeve notes by Ringo himself! a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Heard this on the radio today. I was living in the Hawaiian jungle for most of the seventies, so I was about as far removed from disco as you could be. We occasionally celebrated harvest by flying over to Waikiki. Several times friends took us out to the disco for a drink. Once they played this song. For the intro, the lights were turned down low and people were slow dancing like they used to do when I was in high school. Suddenly the beat started pumping, the disco ball started spinning, the floor was flashing rainbow neon lights, and Donna implored all to “Dance the last dance TONIGHT!!” The place went totally nuts!!!!

Warms my heart – I can’t tell you how much I loved Donna, or how the revolutionary “I Feel Love” single blew my ten-year old brain in ’77 (as did Star Wars and the Ramones, before year’s end)… Disco was peaking in popularity exactly as I reached the age of plugging into pop culture and playing the radio during most waking hours, and the best of it is still among my chosen varieties of sound-for-pleasure

Taylor Hawkins tribute concert at Wembley Stadium last night. Paul ticks off another of his songs that he hasn’t done since way back when he was in a group with some guys called John, George and Ringo…
