    From one of the few Christmas albums I’ll listen to in my grumpy old age.

    One of our nieces asked if we knew Kate Bush's music. Evidently one of her songs made it onto a popular Netflix show called Stranger Things and that's blown up her catalog of music. I was part of college radio back then so Kate Bush was a big presence - almost maybe even a superstar - of college radio. Hounds of Love was really an amazing piece of work, and it is still amazing to listen to now. I remember composer friends trying to get their hands on a Fairlight synthesizer as a result. Interesting how songs come back around for a second life among people who weren't even alive when they were written.

    This seems appropriate:



    When I was 12 or 13 years old and this album had just come out I loved* Goats Head Soup, but I think critics and even diehard Stones fans dismissed or forgot about that album in the ensuing years/decades. Haven't really listened to it much since the 70s, but nowadays I think this tune holds up rather well, stands the test of time. I'd even go so far as to argue that Goats Head Soup is part of the band's Apex Sequence -- imho Beggars Banquet through It's Only Rock 'n' Roll is their best, most consistent material -- though I realize a lot of Brian Jones fans would disagree vehemently.


    *okay, in fairness when I was 12 or 13 years old I "loved" putting on side two of Goats Head Soup because it was the quickest way I found to fall asleep.
    But side one definitely got my wee pre-teen heartrate up.

    My tolerance for Christmas music only goes so far, so mid afternoon yesterday we dove into Pet Sounds, All Things Must Pass, and then of course:

    I was today years old when I discovered Jonathan Kreisberg, and as soon as I can dig myself out of the rabbit hole of his works I may have to add him to my short-list of favorite guitarists

    I always wonder why the blues makes me feel good, but they do.

    I saw these young folks (pun intended) live a few nights ago, wow, they were tight! I'm no bluegrass expert, but I see big things for the Ruta Beggars down the road!

    A little thread drift or perhaps merely a lateral Arabesque…was gifted a book that I am now reading.

    “The Philosophy of Modern Song”. Bob Dylan writes words in book form as well as in song. But that’s no secret given his Nobel Prize.

    Each chapter is about a song/ singer/ songwriter/ life.

    His chapter on Ricky Nelson/ Poor Little Fool and both of the Bobby Darin chapters that I have read so far have given me new appreciation not only for what it was but for what came from it.

    Damn, Dylan’s writing on this stuff is just so wonderful.

    Highly recommend.

    Every chapter has at least one sentence that I re-read and, at times, re-read out loud…just to have the words roll around on my tongue and in my mind. Not only about the music but the observations in them about the world.

    Just brilliant stuff.
    If I knew what I was doing, Id be doing it right now

    Listening to Frank Zappa tonight. Strictly Genteel, several version. Also, Sinister Footware II NYC 1981

    Frank was an incredible musician. He was just as hard driving on his band members as Buddy Rich was.
    He made a lot of great music.

    Zappa. Is there a better place to start with his catalog than at the start?

    Jeff Beck
    At Eagles Auditorium with Rod Stewart and others of equal talent.
    Great stuff on either side of that date.
    Yardbirds and post Rod Stewart and that mix.
    The guy was a master,
    I'm still a fan of his Yardbirds contibutions, but the man went so much farther.
    Listen to some of his live performances of late.
    Just an amazing perfectionist.

    Arguably his best [sic] album was his last -- The Yellow Shark -- but it's elucidating to understand how he arrived there, so sure, start at the very beginning.
    Although it'll be a long journey...

    Touchstones you definitely don't want to miss:
    - We're Only In It For The Money (1968)
    - Uncle Meat (1969)
    - Waka/Jawaka (1972)
    - The Grand Wazoo (1972)
    - Roxy & Elsewhere (1974)
    - One Size Fits All (1975)
    - the aforementioned The Yellow Shark (1993)

    Great list. Each of those albums is a great gateway, particularly One Size Fits All. I'd add Hot Rats, Live at the Fillmore East '71, and Does Humor Belong in Music? (mostly because of his version of "Whipping Post").

    Martin Luther King Jr. Day sounds. Coco Montoya covering Albert Collins, I believe.

    Somewhat ironic that out of all the places I could have first heard this song, it was on the Flanders leg of our recent trip (to London and Flanders). It wouldn't surprise me if a busker might have been playing this in the London Tube, but I must have walked by, not noticing.

    We were in the lounge area of our hotel on a rainy afternoon where the sun would occasionally poke through, waiting for our room to be readied. I was drifting in and out of sleep, as I had foolishly booked a 6:30 train to Brussels and was suffering from sleep deprivation. Then this song came on air. I first thought it was a less known song by Simon & Garfunkel, as the intro had chords similar to "Bleecker Street". Then I realized it was something altogether different.
