What music are you listening to?

Recommended Posts

I've been using YouTube to work my way through all the albums of my favourite artists in chronological order. I've already worked through Pink Floyd, The Eagles, David Bowie, Rod Stewart and Supertramp and now I've just got a couple of Cat Stevens albums to get through. Next, it'll be Yes.

Thank you Choogling for sharing - can't say i'd come across Red on Green (untill now)- but i've led a sheltered life - lol. (i'm just listening some of their other stuff on you tube as I write this, very good) Very much Alice Cooper ish (which ain't a bad thing). Looks like you did well for your 30p. I'm in the middle of swapping my Cd's from one car to another so listening to the Cd's that have slipped under the seats as they do including Steppenwolf's Monster Lp and Alice Coopers 'Goes to Hell'. Which brought me to thinking what happened to concept albums? I know Ian Anderson didn't like what he'd done with the 'Too old to Rock n Roll - to young to die' Lp but yer can't beat the lead song's lyrics - (love the burnt out spark plugs line)

 

The old rocker wore his hair too long              ( lock down)

Wore his trouser cuffs too tight                         (turn up's for keeping the extra Ace card in)
Unfashionable to the end                                       (Lewis Leathers or Wrangler are the only 2 label's  i've worn)
Drank his ale too light                                               
Death's head belt buckle, yesterday's dreams               
The transport caf', prophet of doom
Ringing no change in his double-sewn seams
In his post-war-babe gloom
Now he's too old to rock and roll
But he's too young to die
Yes he's too old to rock and roll
But he's too young to die
He once owned a Harley Davidson
And a Triumph Bonneville
Counted his friends in burned-out spark plugs
Prays that he always will
But he's the last of the blue blood's greaser boys
And all his mates are doing time
Married with three kids up by the ring road
Sold their souls straight down the line
And some of them own little sports cars
And meet at the tennis club do's
For drinks on a Sunday, work on Monday
They've thrown away their blue suede shoes
Now they're too old to rock and roll
And they're too young to die
Yes they're too old to rock and roll
And they're too young to die
So the old rocker gets out his bike
To make a ton before he takes his leave
Up on the A1 by Scotch Corner
Just like it used to be
And as he flies, tears in his eyes
His wind-whipped words echo the final take
And he hits the trunk road doing around a hundred and twenty
With no room left to brake
And he was too old to rock and roll
And he was too young to die
No he was too old to rock and roll
And he was too young to die
No, you're never too old to rock and roll
If you're too young to die
And no you're never too old to rock and roll
But he was too young to die

 

 

Keep safe.

Another long lost  favourite of mine from the eighties nineties were the pixies, I bought Santa Rosa  after hearing it while queuing in HMV  to pay for something else ,at the time I never went  in a record shop with more than twenty quid in my pocket and rarely came out with out blowing the lot. Santa Rosa is so well produced it sounds good on any mid range hi-fi system but on a decent system it rocks, stand out tracks  are Bone Machine and Where is my mind  i was playing this on good old scratchy  vinyl  through an AR  legend deck  and an exposure x amp  and some delta 30 speakers  .Fancy some Dead On Arrival tomorrow with Words Without Action = Nothing , excellent example of Canadian punk this time on cd.
