Tom Waits

Happy birthday Tom Waits (1949) and Harry Chapin (1942).

I went for the Tom Waits paper sleeves from Island a while back…but my “price” has to be an original Asylum Records issue of “Swordfishtrombones”…

Luther Grosvenor

Happy birthday Al Hirt (1922), Mary Travers (of Peter Paul & Mary) (1937), singer Johnny Rivers (1942) and Joni Mitchell (1943).

LUTHER GROSVENOR – “Under Open Skies” (Island Records), 1971

I bought “Under Open Skies” probably because it was on Island Records – before it ever came out in the US.  And when it did eventually come out in the US, it was still on Island Records (via Capitol)!

I just listened to it again – what a GREAT album!  Luther is also known as Ariel Bender, the guitarist of Mott The Hoople.  The songs are really good and the Gott Records CD of it has 2 x B-Sides, which only add to the fun.

It’s not a long album, quite the opposite!  It’s super short!  But that doesn’t take anything away from them.

I eventually got another Luther Grosvenor album, but I can’t remember any of it – even it’s title, “Floodgates”?

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.

Millie Small

Happy birthday Millie Small (“My Boy Lollipop”) (1946). On this day 50 years ago, LSD was declared illegal in the United States.

I have never taken LSD – that I am aware of.

Recently, I have tried to find more records by Millie Small, but not even her “Greatest Hits” LP shows up in Los Angeles!  She was an early Island Records artist, apparently (although my big hit single was licensed out to Fontana Records, Smash in the US).  I wonder why I never ever see her LP’s?  The 45’s that I’ve found are all on different labels, too.

There was rather a lot written about her in the Island Records book, from a few years back.  But still I feel like I don’t know much about her, other than “My Boy Lollipop”.

Paul Kossoff / Free etc.

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

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

Keith Emerson dies

Keith Emerson died today…
My interest in Emerson, Lake & Palmer goes as far as their 2nd LP “Tarkus”.  The debut album sounds AMAZING, if you can find an Island UK copy of the LP.  Not the Manticore re-issue, but an Island UK LP original LP.  Absolutely amazing sound.  I think I like the material on “Tarkus” better, though it has been years since I listened to it.  Not much of a fan of “Trilogy”.  “BSS” is better than “Trilogy”, but that’s not really saying much…

I like most of the work of The Nice, with my top Nice LP being “Autumn To Spring”, the collection of singles.  Side 2 of “Five Bridges” isn’t bad either.  And somehow, I have some very good Nice video, too!  (Truth is, there isn’t much decent EL&P video).

Yesterday, happy birthday to Kevin Ayers (of The Soft Machine) (1945).

I’ve been a fan of Kevin Ayers for something like 45 years! It’s so nice that he almost immediately made solo album, after leaving Soft Machine.
