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 (37)

afternoon peoples. hope everyone had a fun or at least relaxing weekend. mine was both, for the most part. man, right now im listening to the earth is not a cold dead place, and to my ears, at least at this moment, it sounds like the greatest thing ever put to tape. if for some reason you have never basked in its glory, download it, buy it, or borrow it from a friend, but do it now….

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) (40)

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 (61)

give the machine another quarter, watch it appear, ooh a souvenir

Posted by selene on Thursday, January 7th, 2010

A little more than a year ago, Bill Janovitz started a new blog, Part Time Man of Rock, posting a cover song a week. Over the ensuing months some unreleased demos and live cuts would work their way in, but the largess showed off Janovitz’s sonic loves, often accompanied by laugh-riddled or gut-wrenching missives that show this man bleeds for it.

Anyone who goes to the Crown Victoria residencies at Toad or the bi-annual Buffalo Tom outings at the Paradise already knows this. They’ve probably also heard many of these covers live (It Makes No Difference and just about every Stones song ever written) but in a little corner of the internet, Lonesome Billy has been indefatigably swinging away at the songs that made him – Neil Young to the Beatles to Nina Simone to Will Oldham to Tom Waits to The Replacements. I encourage you to go to the site – read the stories (and email us with guesses as to who that “McBand” headliner is in Week 14 Straight to Hell!) – make a donation – buy a record – whathaveyou – and then set your iPod to stun: Cover of the Week (1-52) Zip. Full playlist shows in the rail of his blog and can be downloaded here.

Bill performs this weekend at the House of Blues for the 10th annual edition of Hot Stove Cool Music. If you’re local, it’s always a good time. And if you’re further afield, the organizers blessed us with a Saturday (not Sunday) night. Kay Hanley, Tinted Windows, State Radio, The Low Anthem (great alt-country if you havent heard em yet) and the Peter Gammons All Stars are also on the bill. His side project Crown Victoria plays the Foundation Room at the House of Blues/Boston on Feb 5.

Buy some of Bill’s stuff. (38)

uncle tupelo's colorblind and rhymeless

Posted by gregor on Friday, December 11th, 2009

ut

i was actually attempting to make a top 20 this year, but as it turns out i have really only spent the year listening to 5-6 records, religiously. sure there’s a lot of good-great stuff out this year, but not much has held my attention past a few listens. there are two records though that really to my ears are minor classics, and are battling it out for the number 1 spot. should have my list compiled by early next week, i hope.

in other news, here are a few uncle tupelo demos that were once on tape that goes by the name of colorblind and rhymeless. sadly, up until last night, i didnt even know this existed. second time in a week, see the hip demos, that something like this had escaped my consciousness for far too long. and i call myself a completest….

1. before i break
2. i got drunk
3. screen door
4. blues die hard
5. pickle river (26)

early tragically hip demos

Posted by gregor on Friday, December 4th, 2009

hip

hidy ho neighbors! i happened across this set of early hip demos which i never new existed. i guess that doesnt make me much of a tragically hip fan? i forgot the details at home but apparently some tape showed up on ebay, and this is that tape. they, i believe, are taken pre their 87 self titled debut. they’re a bit rough in some spots, mostly due to tape hiss, but all in all still very listenable and its interesting to hear the origins of some of my most beloved songs.

1. she didnt know
2. when the wait comes down
3. new orleans is sinking
4. shes got what it takes
5. ill believe in you
6. rain, hearts, fires
7. the hailstone hands
8. nuclear bar-bq
9. just another midnight
10. three pistols
11. leather man
12. it came round
13. im ok
14. times are passing us by
15. juliet
16. running for my life
17. on the shelf (19)
