I’m passively listening to vonbrother-in-law play the first 10-to-30 seconds of a bunch of songs, one after another…a-hard-days-night-george-10)

  

…and having gotten sick of hearing partial songs, I’ve switched on my own headphones and switched to some vintage English folk-rock

@vonbontee — I recall an AM radio station that had a game for listeners, something like they played 3 or 4 seconds of the beginnings of 10 songs and the first caller to identify them all got a prize.

I had never heard that one.  I’m stunned.  So beautiful and cool.  

Isn’t it? That guitar lick is enchanting, and the rest of the song is just sweet. Also, his then-11-ish-year-old son is singing higher harmony on some of the parts. heart

Sea Belt also said
Another thing about “Father and Daughter” that’s rather subtle, I notice Paul enunciates each word in an effortlessly pleasing and cool way utterly free of being affected yet inventive all the same.  

Yeah, that’s something I notice about a lot of his work, but it’s particularly apparent here. He often uses a rather conversational, effortless way of singing that is extremely understated yet often way harder to do than it may seem, and it always perfectly serves the lyrics. It’s certainly the only way to deliver a song like “Father And Daughter”, which could come across as cheesy or sappy if over-sung.

Anyway I’m currently listening to this because I’m trying to learn it

@Beatlebug — wow I didn’t realize his little son was also singing along, I’ll have to re-listen soon.  Another song where his voice is particularly nice is “Everything Put Together Falls Apart” from his first solo album.  I also like how the sound engineer maximized the intimate closeness of his mellow quiet voice.  And of course his superlative acoustic guitar picking.

Not a bad song, that Hosanna.  It’s nice to hear Paul indulge his baritone.

I remember the hype around the release of that “EB ’84” album, the first new music from Phil and Don after eleven years of them feuding and refusing to work together, with a leading single written for them by superfan Paul McCartney . I never heard “Nightingale” on the radio, but would see the video occasionally on Canada’s music tv channel. 

In this clip, the brothers find and rescue a decrepit ’50s convertible from a junkyard, haul it to a garage, repair and refurbish it beautifully, and finally take it for a drive. A simple idea, and a nice conceptual metaphor for two abandoned and semi-forgotten 1950s rock stars, with their careers in the dumps, nevertheless working together to restore their friendship and revive their careers.

I made a playlist of my favorite Lennon songs (Beatles and solo) for just this occasion. Currently it’s I’m Only Sleeping .

My friend sent me a link to an old Buddy Rich/Max Roach album.  I looked up Buddy Rich on Discogs to see if I could find it, then along the way I saw in 1959 Buddy Rich put out an album where he sings songs.  Randomly chose one title I’d never heard of before, “Down the Old Ox Road”.  Didn’t care for it, but thought I’d see if it was done by other old timers — saw it was heavily covered by Bing Crosby; however, didn’t care for his version either.  I then noticed some woman I’d never heard of cover it, so I thought, what they hey, why not?  Turns out I like her voice a lot — a clean vanilla voice with no tremolo (I hate tremolo ordinarily, though most singers, especially in the old days, seemed to use it).

Cool, I’ve never heard of any Roach/Rich collaboration before now! Description makes it sound very enticing, the concept of two small combos playing simultaneously in either stereo channel, personnel including the Turrentine brothers and Julian Priester…wow! Think I’m gonna have to stream this album, maybe later today.

Been taking an epic journey through Tom Petty & sometimes the Heartbreakers’ discography today, in honor of Tom’s birthday (it would be his 73rd). I’m about to wrap up now, because it’s very much bedtime, but I got all the way to Wildflowers – a fitting place to end, I think, with the album & title track that initially got me into Petty & the Heartbreakers. heart

Kirsty MacColl’s live performance of ‘England 2 Columbia 0’ at The Jazz Cafe in London on 12th October 1999. This, and the rest of the Jazz Cafe set will be released on an 8CD box set called ‘See That Girl: 1979-2000’ celebrating Kirsty’s music. The box set will be coming out on Friday and I’m excited to listen to it! I supplied a Kirsty postcard for the release.
