Kickin' back with some Jimmy Smith.

Hey! I just noticed that Ike Quebec is playing tenor sax on this album.

I jammed Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Damn the Torpedoes the other day, and other than that I've pretty much been shuffling my library a ton. I dunno if my attention span is shortening or what, but I've noticed I just don't listen to as many full albums as I used to. It's bound to happen at some point in my life, but I didn't think it'd be this soon.

I've reached a point where I don't find myself alone with myself much at all anymore, which I love, but the devices that kept me from going insane when I wasn't involved in life much (music, tv, movies, reading, etc) have kind of taken a backseat to the people I care about. And I don't really know how I feel about that. On one hand it's fantastic having the warmth and experience of life, but on the other, I miss the catharsis of a great song's crescendo, a movie's climax, a book's depth...

Have you guys ever struggled with anything like that?

Making my way through The Beach Boys post-Pet Sounds albums Smiley Smile thru Holland. Some really interesting tunes on those albums, but none of the albums seem to reach the level of Pet Sounds or make an answer to Sgt. Peppers (as both bands seem to have had a little friendly competition going).

As great as this album is.....


.... I found what came after very interesting......









.....also, various versions of what was supposed to be the follow up to Pet Sounds.....



.... and I am not even a Beach Boys fan!

It's a 90s local hard rock band that I discovered when I first moved to Sacramento in 97 (they where breaking up by that time). The singer used to frequent the record shop that I did and would buy Tull albums.

This is their last album released in 1997.





Check out this one. It's a re-release of their debut album (1990) on cd and with extra tracks.

From 1995.


It's been a while since I've listened to these guys.

Cool man. I'm giving that album a quick little sample before class, I dig it so far. I really like the vocals.

Been playing a lot of obscure prog rock and krautrock on youtube. Found some gems...and also quite a bit that deserves to be obscure. LOL.

It's so easy to go down that youtube rabbit hole, haha. Two releases that really stick out to me I've found through that method are:

Riff Raff - Original Man (1974)


and

Cybotron - Cybotron (1976)

I really like both those albums especially that Riff Raff album, try Sweet Smoke, Flied Egg, Marsupilami, Guru Guru, Stud, Toe Fat, Weed... I could go on and on as far as obscure '70s goes.

Stud is the band that Richard McCracken and John Wilson formed after the band Taste which also featured the great Rory Gallagher.

I enjoyed both those albums M-O-M. I REALLY like the Cybotron.

Yeah the synths on Cybotron are out of this world.

And I should definitely check out Stud, I love Taste. Rory Gallagher is a phenomenal guitarist and one of my favorites.

Ambrosia - Ambrosia (killer progressive pop/rock! i should've listened to this a long time ago)
side 1 of Renaissance's Ashes are Burning
Legend - Death in the Nursery (one of the most original NWOBHM albums I've had the pleasure of stumbling onto)
A good chunk of the Hidden Hand's Mother Teacher Destroyer
Laura Nyro - Eli and the Thirteenth Confession (Kate Bush owes everything to this woman)

Halfway thru my first spin of their newest studio effort and I find it boring, I cant even remember a song off of it. Not even Cesar Rosas' obligatory cumbia got my attention. Maybe a few more spins and something will grab me. It hearkens back to their Pop, Country, Folky, Waltzy earlier albums a bit and I'm not as fond of those releases but still found some charm to some songs throughout.

How they didn't make my top 25 fave bands is beyond me.
