One day (um, one week) - I'm gonna scroll to page one of this thread and try some of these artists out. A lot of these posts are by artists I've honestly never heard of. Don't even know the genre.

Will leave you with this:
- Bob Dylan's track: I shall be released
- but try the version by - mama cass, mary travers, joni mitchel
... the dude operating the mic boom is a little slow to catch the change in singer even though the cameraman was paying attention, it's typical streaming lo-fi sound, and whoever ripped this cut the ending a bit early, but it is still a bit special.

Okay - try this for size:

American Epic - The Sessions.

All recorded on what I believe is a refurbished original all electric sound recording system - the first of it's kind - and features a range of artists singing period songs. They are one take, mono, tracks and the atmosphere of them is just astounding.

Take out tracks?

- Candy Man - Jerron 'Blind Boy' Paxton
- Fingers of Whiskey - Elton John and Jack White (one of the few original songs produced for the album)
- St Louis Blues - Pokey LaFarge
- The Coo Coo Bird - Steve Martin (yes; that one) and Eddie Brickell

Those are just a few from the double cd but it is packed full of interest. I saw the BBC4 documentary on the making of it and it is just a fascinating thing to watch and I think this link may take you to it?

Enjoy!

Best regards, Neil.

Edit - changed the link as the previous one didn't load.

Vinnie Colaiuta- Descent Into Madness.

Only caught a snippet of information about this one. Apparently Vinnie did drum improvisations while watching different movies and then his collaborator wrote music over the drum tracks. Not for everyone's ears.

Two more brand new LP's in the house that I already had CD's of. Dire Straits-Making Movies and Gov't Mule-Life Before Insanity. Both 180 gram pressings, DS for $28 and GM for 38 and it's a numbered limited edition of 2000 for the 20th anniversary of it's release. It's around 70 minutes so it's on 2 discs but it sounds great, I heard instruments today I hadn't picked up before and I've had the CD for 15 years now. To me the 180g discs do sound better but I'm not sure they're worth twice the price, depends on which one it is I guess.

Currently listening to the soundtrack of the musical "Dear Evan Hansen." And music from Hamilton. Both are great musicals that should be in the canon of great musicals. And music from Finding Neverland (When Your Feet Don't Touch The Ground, a really terrific song). And listening to Rebecca Luker, who died recently from ALS.

You aren't alone here!   In the meantime, Vivaldi's Four Seasons got me round my weekly Tesco shop quite comforably.

Right now it's Robert Cray-Strong Persuader on the turntable, before that it was Blue Oyster Cult-Secret Treaties and started the evening off with Dire Straits-Making Movies.
