No politics or gossip. Let's talk about music we love.

I'm listening to the second side of Cosmo's Factory right now, for the first time in a long time. John Fogerty may not be one of the top 20 guitar players of all time, but he sure does some fun guitar stuff on Heard it Through the Grape Vine.

And that man has a way with Lyrics as well.

Fogerty plays some memorable licks, and not everyone can do that.

Listening to the Patchwork Quilt from The Deepest End right now. This is probably my favorite version of this song

Sco-Mule (John Schofield), and Tear It Down (Bootsy) are my favorites -- boy would Allen have been pleased --

Music.

Making breakfast listening to the Layla album right now. For my money the best album ever. I can't go more than a few weeks without listening to it front to back.

There's not much better than a warm sunny morning, windows open, nice breeze, eggs and bacon cooking and good music playing loud.

cmgst34 - in my mind's eye I'm walking done the road by your house hearing the tunes and picking up on the smell of bacon wafting through the air. A wonderful picture.

Yeah, but I can not stand his voice, sounds like he has a mouth full of oatmeal.

Well. I do try to...

Music is my antidote to the severe depression brought on by the intrusion of politics.

Agree with you 100% regarding Cosmos factory and the genius of CCR in general...

I just got done listening to a downloaded Roy Buchanon show from 1974 that was so freaking good that I immediately offered it up as a vine ...

http://www.allmanbrothersband.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=XForum&am p;file=viewthread&tid=130206

Other than that, in the last few hours since I gladly finished the work week, I have listened to :

Black Sabbath - 13
Sixto Rodgriguez- Cold Fact
Trapeze- Medusa
The Lyres -On Fyre (a very cool 80's retro 60's garage band from Boston)
The Tough and Lovely- Born of the Stars ( a very cool 2004 retro 60's garage band from Columbus Ohio)
Fleetwood Mac-Then Play On


Music . I love listening to it AND talking about it ...

Look at every thread, except one about bicycles, in the last two pages of threads in Anything Goes, solid music. Every thread. This is by far the best music discussion forum on the web. I've been turned onto some fantastic stuff here that I never would have found otherwise.

Lately I've found myself falling down the live Grateful Dead rabbit hole, with all the hype around their spring 1977 tour, as well as digging into some of the sprawling 1969 improvs. Escaped from Dead hell into a discovery of Bombino, Saharan guitar player, just ordered his new record Nomad, from the local record store by the way, not on line, gotta keep these guys afloat, wait, sorry, that's politics.

You and me both, I've been listening to the Brewer Fieldhouse show a lot lately. As far as stuff outside the ABB I've been revisiting a lot of Mike Stern's stuff from his first few albums, he's a very interesting player if you can get past his tone. I know a lot of folks are not too fond of his solid state tone always drenched in chorus and reverb, but he is a phenomenal composer and player.

I love this thread, and was just thinking very similarly along the lines of the above quote this morning. I continue to acquire music, as does everyone here. And you really CAN use it to avoid depression.............there is SOMETHING in my collection for every single mood I could possibly be in. What an amazing, drug-free antidote. Er.........not always drug-free.........I often light up when listening.

The idea came from two things Friday night. first, I stayed much longer than I intended at my local brewpub. I got I to a great conversation about music with the brewer. Then I came hope to listen to vinyl, and when I logged in to this site, almost all of the active threads that night were about politics.

Here's hoping for a few more evening conversations about music around here.

Keeping the flow going, I've been revisiting the Replacements lately, gearing up for their Chicago show in September.

While catching up on some paperwork at the office this afternoon, I listened to Rare Earth Live, and a little Rory.

Putting a spare receiver and turntable in my office has made weekend work a little more tolerable.

Well just got back from seeing Rush. They put on a fantastic show and to me they take alot of risks setlist wise in the sense that not all there big classic rock radio songs are played. The people around me were very displeased about this but all I have to say is the band was fantastic. I really enjoyed the Clockwork Angel portion of the show and YYZ was epic and even included a Calder Cup appearance (trophy for the winner of the AHL playoffs). Though probably my favorite song of the night had to be Territories. Just a thought but Neil Pert's drum solo right before Red Sector A had a very electronica vibe to it, I dug it but it looked like I was in the minority. One last note the String Section for most of the second set was a nice addition and added to the songs.

Set 1:
Subdivisions
The Big Money
Force Ten
Grand Designs
Limelight
Territories
The Analog Kid
Bravado
Where's My Thing?
(including drum solo)
Far Cry
Set 2: (with Clockwork Angels String Ensemble)
Caravan
Clockwork Angels
The Anarchist
Carnies
The Wreckers
Headlong Flight
(including drum solo)
Halo Effect
(with guitar solo intro)
The Garden
Manhattan Project
(including drum solo)
Red Sector A
YYZ
(Calder cup brought on stage during song)
The Spirit of Radio
Encore:
Tom Sawyer
2112 Part I: Overture
2112 Part II: The Temples of Syrinx
2112 Part VII: Grand Finale

Yep, i guess that setlist isn't a typical crowd pleasing trip through memory lane. Indeed they take a big risk in dissapointing those who want to hear all the classic Rush songs. 5 years ago they did the same when "Snakes and Arrows" was released. On that tour they played a big chunck of that new release and also (like this tour) revisited their albums of the Eighties in stead of the Seventies. Some bands release new studio efforts but only play a handfull of those songs live. It's almost as if they think that it's not worth playing them and for the fans to not buying them. In stead Rush are proud and pleased with their new work (and deservedly so) and are willing to show it. And for those that are dissapointed: if you like it or not but nowadays with all social media and online press info it's ussually clear what you can expect from a certain tour. Even if you don't want to find out the exact setlist (a big spoiler) you can still find out what "the theme" is of that specific tour.

Do they still use the "South Park" video screen footage as an intro for "Tom Saywer"? Hilarious stuff!

I like the looks of that setlist.

I am kinda suprised to hear some of the Rush fans being displeased. Those people seem to be pretty hardcore . To me it seems like at this point in the game with Rush and other classic rock acts, that usually(the majority) of the fans that are there would be the "die hard/lifer" fans who would enjoy a setlist like that. Maybe I am wrong though. I think more bands of that era should mix in some deep stuff. I would be thrilled to hear that instead of pounding the same stuff. Some of these bands have a vast enough catalog where I think they should do it ,IMHO. To what extent is their perogative. I know Rush has been doing that over the last few tours and Iron Maiden has been also, and I say good for them. I know some bands are coming out and playing whole albums which is pretty cool.
I would love to hear Deep Purple dig in a little more and UFO also.

I remember going to plenty of ABB shows from 1991-up until 1998 where I could almost name the setlist or guess what songs where going to be played and they came out that night and played 2 -3 have never heard live before and was very pleased.

The fans on the floor and closer to the stage in the lower bowl seemed to be into it but the people around me it seemed were there for the hits. At one point the lady next to me said and nobody knows this song during the Clockwork Angel set . But I enjoy set list like this as I got to know more of the Rush catalog and after looking up some of the songs I really enjoyed got some albums to check out to.
