highway 61 revisited revisited

Posted by gregor on Monday, April 12th, 2010

happy monday! i never thought i would be so happy to be at work as i am today. the wife worked two doubles this weekend so it was me and the raging lunatics all weekend. sure we had some fun, but damn if by about 5 pm yesterday, i had had enough. btw, dont ever google “skeeter eater” when your child is around, it aint pretty. in my defense though, he wanted to see pictures of the bugs that eat mosquitos and wanted to me to google that particular phrase.

found this over the weekend, and as the title suggests it comes from uncut and was put out in 05, i believe. i dont think it was ever for sale, per se, but if you want to buy it in all its cd glory someone is selling it on amazon for 143 bucks.

drive by truckers – like a rolling stone
marc carrol – tombstone blues
paul westerberg – it takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry
richmond fontaine – from a buick 6
willard grant conspiracy – ballad of a thin man
american music club – queen jane approximately
dave alvin – highway 61 revisited
the handsome family – just like tom thumb blues
songdog – desolation row

paul mccartney's the alternate red rose speedway

Posted by gregor on Thursday, April 8th, 2010

i had never even heard of mccartney’s red rose speedway until i grabbed this a few weeks ago. from what i have been reading, it seems as if people fall into one of two camps regarding this record, love or hate. i havent heard the actual record, but going by this, i cant really tell ya how i feel. some of its good, some not so good. there’s a bit more to this than what i have posted, but from what i can gather the remaining stuff is pretty close to the actual record, and really dont want to risk it. i may be wrong, of course.

1. hold me tight, lazy dynamite, hands of love, power cut
2. the mess
3. thank you darling
4. mary had a little lamb
5. bridge on the river suite
6. tragedy
7. seaside woman
8. best friend
9. night out
10. mama’s little girl
11. tragedy
12. jazz street
13. give ireland back to the irish
14. night out
15. soily
16. henry’s blues
17. country dreamer
18. country dreamer
19. night out
20. one more kiss
21. jazz street
22. big barn bed
23. my love
24. when the night
25. single pigeon
26. tragedy
27. mamas little girl
28. loup
29. i would only smile (565)

4. meth vs chef
5. box in hand

jackson browne's criterion demos

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

on this day, at this moment, in 1996 i am probably on the el going to work and im probably feeling a little light headed and/or a sharp pain in my side. the reason for these brief yet all to real ailments is that 35 year old me is gonna post something related to jackson browne. you have to understand that 22 year old me wouldnt have any of this kinda 70’s soft rock/singer songwriter bullshit, it was all about living in the present, embracing “today’s” music, man. how some dope smokin jive turkey thats twice my age gonna teach me something or better yet how can even enjoy their music? see where i am going with that? that was pretty much my way of thinking until about 25. although, thats probably a bit over dramatization but not that far off. anyway, honestly, this is my first introduction mr browne’s music other than the obvious singles i have heard of the years, and i gotta admit this stuff is pretty damn good. this stuff being the criterion demos, just like the title suggest. you can read a bit about it here and im assuming i should probably check out his first record since these are the demos to it?

1. last time i was home
2. jamaica say you will
3. song for adam
4. doctor my eyes
5. low road
6. door into the morning
7. another place
8. birds of st marks
9. mae jean goes to hollywood
10. gone to sorrow
11. hot like today
12. a child in these hills
13. the top
14. my opening farewell
15. the times you’ve come
16. from the silverlake
17. there came a question
18. rock me on the water
19. nightingale (777)

here’s a collection of soundgarden “rarities” that goes by the name of fresh deadly rarities. i havent been able to listen to it as of yet, for i just downloaded it and then immediately uploaded it. so, i cant vouch for their quality, but im assuming its good.

1. toy box
2. heretic
3. come together
4. fresh deadly roses
5. into the void
6. girl you want
7. stray cat blues
8. she’s a politician

public enemy: the remixes

Posted by gregor on Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

for roughly the past 5 or so years, i have been haphazardly searching for my beloved public enemy singles of yore. back in 1989 and through 1994, i used to snatch up all the cd singles pe put out cause they typically featured some awesome remixes and you can judge for yourself below. i have not been able to track down any of the physical discs, but luckily for me, and my nostalgia, i have been able to hunt down digital versions. there’s a couple i havent been able to come up with, but i will not rest until i collect them all! of course this is just a small sampling of what they have put out over the years, but to me these are the cream of the crop.

shut ‘em down (pete rock remix)
night of the living baseheads (anti high blood pressure encounter mixx)
brotha’s gonna work it out (remix)
powersaxx
the enemy assault vehicle mixx
cant truss it (goree island conga radio mix)
by the time i get to arizona (arizona assassination attempt acca double dub) (478)

pink floyd's bbc archives '70-'71

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

in my 35 years of existence, ive never had lentil soup. my wife decided to change that tonight, and honestly im not that excited about it. im pretty hungry and lets be honest soup is not what one would consider a “hearty meal.” at least lentil doesnt appear to be as such. probably just fill up on bread and get the bloat. here’s what the title suggests…. just a forewarning, “echoes” and “atom heart mother” are both almost 50 megs, which if ya dont know, is fairly large for an single song mp3 file.

1. john peel intro
2. embryo
3. fat old sun
4. green is the colour
5. careful with that axe, eugene
6. if
7. atom heart mother
8. fat old sun
9. one of these days
10. embryo
11. echoes
12. blues (637)
