George Harrison “Wonderwall Music”

Happy birthday Kinky Friedman (1944), Russ Ballard (Argent) (1947) and Annabella Lwin (singer of Bow Wow Wow) (1952; can that date be correct?).

Happy Halloween, everybody!  (Never been my favorite holiday, I must confess.)

GEORGE HARRISON “Wonderwall Music”

Not only the first Beatles’ solo record, but a damn fine LP!  I have a New Zealand LP version with the rear cover printed the right way around!  (Bruce Ward, thanks!)  Not only that, my LP has a Japanese poster in it, along with the LP insert!  The 2014 Jpn CD of it has some amazing bonus tracks, including an instrumental version of The Beatles’ “The Inner Light”!

I remember trying to figure out which songs had Eric Clapton, as he was uncredited on the initial edition.  “Ski-ing” is pretty much it, for Clapton, on this LP.  And, yes, he is credited on the 2014 edition (along with Ringo Starr – again, “Ski-ing”).  So, this was re-issued as an LP in 1992 or 1993, but likely not in 2014 – at least I’ve never seen an LP re-issue dated 2014!

And remember the confusion surrounding “Electronic Sound”?  A few months after “Wonderwall Music”, “Electronic Sound” turned up on a new label (“Zapple Records”)…Zappa or just “ZAP”?

Floyd Cramer

Happy birthday Floyd Cramer (1933), Cleo Laine (1927) guitarist Philip Catherine (1942) and singer Simon LeBon (Duran Duran)(1958).

I have been a big Floyd Cramer fan for many years – that, and I enjoy instrumental easy listening albums.  My discography is far from complete – he must’ve had a LOT of albums for RCA!

Hoyt Axton

Happy birthday Keith Strickland (B-52’s) (1953)!  Pablo Picasso died today in 1975.  Hoyt Axton died today in 1999.

I’ll do Hoyt Axton today.  “Boney Fingers” was always a favorite 45 of mine.

Yes

Happy birthday Jon Anderson (singer of Yes) (1944) – this is also the day that Nick Drake died in 1974.

Since I only like Yes WITH Jon Anderson, I’ll do Yes today!  I’ve bought a few editions of some Yes titles!

“The Yes” on an Italian LP, a 5.1 DVD-A of “Fragile”…I remember hearing them back around 1970 on the FM radio: “All Good People”, probably.  I bought “Fragile” as soon as it came out, and quickly lost interest – but why?  It is British progressive rock!  I guess I just didn’t need “Close To The Edge”; a discount store near here had the 3LP “Yessongs” for a really low price, so I got that one, when new, too.

“90125” was originally called “80143” or something like that, indicating it was a dollar less in retail price.  I also bought the SA-CD boxed set, when it was new (as that added a few titles to the short list of what was on SA-CD).

Mott The Hoople

Happy birthday Bill Wyman (The Rolling Stones) (1939), Dale “Buffin” Griffin (Mott The Hoople) (1948) and producer Ted Templeman (1944) – who was also in Harper’s Bizarre.

Let’s go with Mott The Hoople today!  Named from a novel by Willard Manus, Mott were always a good band, although they were popular in England (almost on a Rolling Stones level) they were practically unknown in the US prior to their hooking up with David Bowie in 1972.

Klaus Schulze

Happy birthday Ric Lee (of Ten Years After)!  In 1962, “The Monster Mash” was a big hit for Bobby “Boris” Pickett.

Klaus Schulze

I was about 14 when I first heard Klaus Schulze, way back in 1972 or so.  I was very impressed by “Irrlicht”, his debut solo album, as was my friend, Cameron Hand.  Was it classical music?  Or just “electronics”?  We did not know what it was – it sounded like it came from another planet!

The Association

Happy birthday Chuck Berry (1926), Russ Giguere (The Association) (1943) and Laura Nyro (1947). 2 out of 3 ain’t bad?

The Association

Probably first heard “Cherish” on an AM radio.  Seemed like FM never really took up with The Association, apart from the hits (not that I can remember back that far).

Saw them in “Goodbye Columbus” (a film with Richard Benjamin, directed by Frank Perry), love the movie, probably never played the soundtrack LP.

I did get some of their albums on CD from Japan and some Edsel LP re-issues.  Lauren knows one of them.  Would love to find some Japanese 45’s!

Beat Sound – Day 3

Happy birthday to Evel Knievel (1938), Ziggy Marley (1968) and Jimmy Seals (Seals & Crofts) (1942).

Beat Sound – Day 3

Continuing the ranking:

#21 top ranked band / artist: Roger Waters

Their recommended album: “Amused To Death” (1992), which is now on SA-CD, but wasn’t in 2010

#22 top ranked band: Popol Vuh

Their recommended album: “In Den Garten Pharaos” (1972), which I haven’t heard in a long time!

#23 top ranked band: Can

Their recommended album: “Future Days” (1973), an album I can recommend, too!

#24 top ranked band: Sebastian Hardie

Their recommended album: “Four Moments” (1975), odd to see an Australian band on this list

#25 top ranked band: Camel

Their recommended album: “The Snow Goose” (1975), I like it better now than I did in 1975

#26 top ranked band: Gentle Giant

Their recommended album: “Gentle Giant” (1970), I own a copy, but it’s not my favorite

#27 top ranked band / artist: Brian Eno

Their recommended album: “Music For Films” (1978), not really progressive rock, is it?

#28 top ranked band / artist: Steve Hillage

Their recommended album: “Fish Rising” (1975), probably his best album, too!

#29 top ranked band: Porcupine Tree

Their recommended album: “Deadwing” (2005), never got into them…

#30 top ranked band: Van der Graaf Generator

Their recommended album: “Still Life” (1976), definitely not my favorite VDGG album, but it’s on SA-CD now

And just outside those rankings (in order) you get Renaissance “Prologue” (1972), Fripp & Eno “(No Pussyfooting” (1973), The Moody Blues “Days Of Future Passed” (1967), Focus “Hamburger Concerto” (1974), and Atoll “L’Araignee-Mal” (1975).

Lenny Bruce

Happy birthday Lenny Bruce (1925) and Paul Simon (1942 or 1941).

Always did like Lenny Bruce; from when I found out about him until I actually heard him was several years, perhaps 1966 – 1969?  Then the 2LP Bizarre double LP turned up at the hippie record shop, and I was away.  I had managed to get his book, “How To Talk Dirty and Influence People”, which had an enormous effect on me, as a child.  Just a few words into the book, and I didn’t know what he was talking about!  But, I figured it all out, from context, eventually.

I had to buy his older LP’s from a ran-down seedy store on 7th St. in DTLB, “Larry’s”, where the old guy seemed to hate having kids come into his store.  That guy also had the Deram David Bowie LP!  And tons of other stuff my innocent mind wanted.

At first, it was “How many are there?”, later on it was “How many 45’s are there?”  I found an LP: “Why Did Lenny Bruce Die?” (Capitol), which didn’t seem to answer a lot of questions – more like, it created some questions – about which I knew very little!

I knew he was dead, his real name was Leonard Schneider, his mother was still alive, he had been a junkie etc.

Mr. Bruce certainly contributed to my interest in comedy / spoken word LP’s.
