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).

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!

Made in Sheffield (DVD)

Happy birthday Eddie Cochran (1938), James Darren (1936) and Chubby Checker (1941).

Made In Sheffield – The Birth of Electronic Pop (DVD)

This DVD is something I picked up, probably at an Amoeba store.  The bands on this in question are The Human League, Cabaret Voltaire, Heaven 17, Clock DVA,  ABC, and Pulp.  Of particular note was the amount of time spent discussing Vice Versa, the pre-ABC group!

The documentary itself is 52 minutes in length, it’s from 2004/5, so one guesses that while pretty everyone involved was still alive it was decided to make this film.  The “extra” interviews are fairly interesting, all 76 minutes of ‘em.  There is a handy “Family Tree” of many artists from Sheffield – the booklet details who would not allow their music to be used (Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA); the footage from The Human League and Heaven 17 is generally very nice – but it generally does not involve stuff they recorded with Virgin Records.

Bryan Ferry

Happy birthday Homer (Homer & Jethro)(1920), Paul Cook (Sex Pistols) (1956) and Bobbie Gentry (“Ode To Billie Joe”) (1944).

BRYAN FERRY

I’ve known who / what Bryan Ferry is since 1972, when I tried the debut LP by Roxy Music.  I do not remember what I was expecting, but I had read about them (in the UK press).  I bought the LP @ Mundae Records, on the pier, in Belmont Shore, probably for $5 (or a penny less).  At any rate, I did not remain a Roxy Music fan for very long – my limited attention span notwithstanding.  And I did not initially go for Bryan Ferry solo records – at all.  It wasn’t until he started doing re-makes of Roxy Music songs that I actually liked that I bought anything of his solo career.
