Misc etc.

Happy birthday Joan Jett (The Runaways) (1958) and David Coverdale (Deep Purple and Whitesnake singer) (1949).

After my ‘big buy’ in Tokyo – I can feel myself slowing down, with my record collecting.  Maybe buy a new pair of speakers (to replace some 30 year old Art Audio bookshelf speakers)?

I’ve been collecting records (seriously) since approx. 1968; I’ve been cataloguing my collection since approx. 1976 or so.  I have complete collections of enough artists to last me the rest of my lifetime.

It’s supposed to rain here (9/20), tomorrow – I welcome that.  I also enjoyed it when it was raining in Tokyo – though that did dampen my record collecting spirits; Can’t carry records around in a wet (shoulder) bag!  And in Tokyo, it’s not like I am driving anywhere – here, I have my Suzuki SX-4, and it doesn’t really matter if it’s raining or not, I can just chuck anything in I might find (while out & about) and not have to worry about it!

Finally sleeping at night, though I do wake earlier than usual.  I wish there was a jetlag pill I could take, but – no matter.

Today is my friend Cameron Hand’s birthday – though I haven’t seen him in a long while.

I feel like I should re-assemble my record collection in a more coherent mode, but – dang, that would be A LOT of work!  (I only re-typed it all up a year or two ago).

The Nice – Live @ Fillmore East December 1969

THE NICE – Live at the Fillmore East, December 1969 (2CD) Charisma Japan

Really quite amazing to think that something this old could sound so good!  And, yes, it’s a new Charisma title – complete with pink scroll labels on the disc face(s).  With 2/3 of The Nice having passed away – one can only hope that Lee Jackson gets something out of this one!

Disc 1

Rondo

Ars Longa Vita Brevis

Little Arabella

She Belongs To Me

Disc 2

Country Pie

Five Bridges Suite

Hang On To A Dream

Intermezzo: Karelia Suite

America

War and Peace

The original recordings were captured by Eddie Kramer, the guy who made all the (good) Jimi Hendrix records.  I suppose he was based in New York at that time?

The fact that it took 40 years to surface and directly lead to the formation of Emerson, Lake & Palmer is justification enough for it’s release.  As a long-time fan of The Nice, I welcome this 2CD set!

The Temptations

Happy birthday Lee Dorman (Iron Butterfly) (1941) and Julian “Cannonball” Adderley (1926)!

THE TEMPTATIONS, a Motown group!

If you have the bucks, this is a decent way to go:

https://www.discogs.com/The-Temptations-Emperors-Of-Soul/master/714014

It’s a 5CD boxed set and it has nearly everything you could want for The Temps.

If you are less well heeled, a 2CD collection might do the trick:

https://www.discogs.com/The-Temptations-Anthology/release/5112079

Both have the tracks you would want; I believe I found the “Emperors Of Soul” 5CD boxed set for $1 a disc, as some used store.  It does go slightly later than “Anthology” goes.

And all of this because I liked “Ball Of Confusion” as a youngster!

Paul Kossoff / Free etc.

Happy birthday Paul Kossoff (guitarist of Free) (1950)!

No Doubt About It!  Paul Kossof was one of the great guitarists!

Bob Dylan – “Dylan” (8″ packaging, 2007 master)

Happy birthday David Clayton Thomas (Blood, Sweat & Tears) (1941); also “Live Peace In Toronto 1969” is recorded tonight!

BOB DYLAN – “Dylan” (Columbia 8883714922)

As good as a good “Best of” or “Greatest Hits”, I bought a copy of this in Raleigh, North Carolinaat a place called “Ollie’s Army” in 8” packaging, for less than $2.-

I already have all of the SA-CD’s that were done for Mr. Dylan, and they technically sound “better”.  But this is a fairly recent mastering from 2007, so it does not sound bad.

https://www.discogs.com/Dylan-Dylan/release/3738946

I could use this CD as a “Greatest Hits” with the first 12 tracks alone. But there are 18 tracks.  And I do enjoy the 8” packaging!  (I wonder how many of those there were?)

Beck Bogert & Appice (Epic Japan 7″ packaging 5.1 SA-CD)

Happy birthday George Jones (1931) and Maria Muldaur (1943)!

JEFF BECK, TIM BOGERT & CARMINE APPICE – s/t (EPIC Japan 5.1 audio, 7” packaging) 2016 release

1973, 9 tracks, made in the USA for this British guitarist; if not then Don Nix and The Boys went to England to make an LP (quad at that!)!  This SA-CD says it’s 5.1, not ‘quad’.

https://www.discogs.com/Beck-Bogert-Appice-Beck-Bogert-Appice/release/8641714

The above is exactly what I got from Japan.  It comes with two Japanese “picture sleeves” and a booklet explaining 5.1 audio / SA-CD etc.

While this is not my favorite Jeff Beck album, I am a sucker for new 5.1 SA-CD’s!  The booklet says backing vocals are by Danny Hutton – maybe that’s what sounds good?

The Selecter

Happy birthday Peter Sellers (1925), Patsy Cline (1932) and Jose Feliciano (1945)!

THE SELECTER – “Too Much Pressure and “Celebrate The Bullet” (both Chrysalis US)

I still remember hearing “Missing Words” over a P.A. system in a Woolworth’s on Oxford Street in London, UK in 1979/80.

On the debut album, I liked all of the singles; but the track “James Bond really stood out!

The 2nd album, “Celebrate the Bullet” didn’t go down particularly well around here.  I really liked the track “Cool Blue Lady”, but none of the singles stood out.

Frank Zappa “Hot Rats”

Happy birthday Buddy Holly (1936)!

Frank Zappa – “Hot Rats” (Zappa US LP)

I am happy to report that the recent LP re-issue of Frank Zappa’s “Hot Rats” is, in fact, the “original” mix, not the remix (Rykodisc CD version).  It was always sort of ridiculous that the Zappa Family Trust folks allowed the original mix of this record to be out of print for so many years…the original LP always sounded a certain way and the Ryko CD never sounded even close to it.  Yes, the Ryko CD had some extended version(s), BUT…
