Never realised the Kim Carnes version wasn’t the original…

I am listening to One After 909

I am listening to the full album with my fancy record player after a while of not listening to it. Nothing will ever beat this set up.

I post here a lot but whatever

The Lies Of Love (Extended Version) by Rusty Cage

I have been listening to this artist since i was around 4. He is a great songwriter and makes some awesome concept albums.

I’m torn between whether I love the familiar Billy-fortified version more than this primitive, more syncopated 1962 Cavern rehearsal recording, a few months into Ringo’s tenure

Wow, that’s intense…Is the title an homage to Donovan’s Colors?

No, Wikipedia sez it’s a traditional ballad folk song with roots in the Appalachians; but that it probably came to there from Scotland, so maybe Leitch was inspired by the same sources. Many previous recordings, as far back as Burl Ives in the 40s (Patty’s was 1965/66); the only other version I know (and have in the collection!) is on the ’67 debut album by the Human Beinz, of “Nobody But Me” fame.

Hey Beatlebug, do you think this album opens with the same EMI bird-fx recording as was used on “Across The Universe “??
[MORE]   

It’s very likely. Cirrus Minor is a little quieter and panned and fades in, but I hear the same birdsong “beats”. And both bands were known to use EMI’s sound library.

Anyway, before I paused to compare those two songs, I was listening to this excellent cover, which I periodically remember exists

This is probably both sacrilegious and entirely unsurprising, given my personal biases, but I prefer this version over the original… the rocked-up feel and intensity of Matt’s vocal just really works for the song imo… but let’s be real I just love me some distorted guitarwheedling a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Did you post that on “Turn It Up Or Down” a few years back or am I imagining?

I found insanely long YouTubes of sheer white noise (sometimes over 20 hours). Then I thought I’d search for other colors of noise — “orange noise”, “green noise” etc. — even found a “silver noise”! 

Right now I’m listening to the silver noise.

Decades ago, I did this in a lower tech way:  if you take an old-fashioned (circa 1970s) radio and crank the dial all the way to one end or the other, you will find no station but just a wall of white noise.  I’d use that, though at random moments sometimes the radio would pick up people talking — as if a phone line got picked up.  Later I purchased a rinky-dink little keyboard that has a “sample” button on it, where if you pushed it there was a beep and then it would start recording for a few seconds. You could then select “loop” to have whatever sound you recorded loop indefinitely.  For white noise, I would press the button then put my mouth up to the microphone and go “shhhhhhhhhhhhh” then loop it.

I did this a while back when I was looking up the video/audio I sleep to. I found Brown noise which was quite intresting.

Yeah, all the colored noises sound different from each other, but I think it’s just an arbitrary aesthetic thing determined by whoever put the video up — “this noise sounds green!” — not anything based in scientific testing.  Brown noise seems thicker and maybe deeper I think, than white or silver noise.

Listening to this again, such a thunderous lurching frenetic DANCE rocker, guitars roaring, Paul and John howling and babbling, and especially Ringo. Just Ringo, man.

Checking out Tom Petty’s Wildflowers right now; I’ve been streaming his catalog the last couple of days. It’s got a few nice ones, I guess, but it’s not grabbing me.

I think it’s to do with the frequencies of the sound. If you map them out as a color spectrum, they appear to be whatever color. So “white noise” is equal amounts of all sound frequencies, like white light is equal amounts of all color frequencies. Other “colors” of noise will have variations in the amounts of different frequencies, corresponding with the different amounts of light frequencies seen in those colors. If that makes sense.

Brown noise is my favorite, I like the bassier quality of it. I find white noise itself a little harsh.

You have uttered the fighting words my friend a-hard-days-night-john-6

Wildflowers changed how I saw Tom Petty and how I saw songwriting. It’s so understated, personal, yet full of quiet brilliance. You do have to be in the right mood, though; I like it best on slightly melancholy November afternoons.

It is definitely a very understated album though.

Eaaaanyway, I’m currently listening to this (it took a lot of self-restraint not to send it to Neely when I was sending song recommendations [Image Can Not Be Found]a-hard-days-night-paul-7 I just… didn’t wanna go too deep too fast, and a 13-minute-long mini-symphony kinda felt like a lot?)
