I am drinking my afternoon coffee and listening to Chicago 2. Genre: Jazz fusion, rock. Released in 1970.

Love those horns! And drums! And Terry Kath on guitar/vocals! And all the rest of them! Great stuff!

The Kath years were just great.

Starting the day with this old favorite, David Axelrod's "Song Of Innocence".  It's an uncategorizable orchestral psych classic inspired by William Blake's poems, from a guy otherwise best known for producing Lou Rawls and Cannonball Adderly.

My music taste is all over the place: pop, alternative, oldies, metal, acoustic...

I am really digging the posts from @Bubby!! Smashing Pumpkins, Sufjan Stevens, Counting Crows... That's the way to my heart right there! I think you would like Silversun Pickups. Like Smashing Pumpkins but with a smoother vocalist.

A recreation of a 8 Track I grew up is now being played:

Various Artists: Black Expression Ronco 1974, a mixture of soul, funk and odd bit of reggae that crammed 24 tracks  and 62 minutes into a record and 8 track which sounded better than the record actually.




Now how did they fit all this  in? Well try fading songs out early and cutting a verse out, eliminate most of low notes on the record cos they take up room and use a low volume and hey you have slotted in! The 8 track had low notes and decent sound levels!!!

Roll on to 2009 and I've got that 8 track professionally repaired but the fade outs and that still irritate on my Akai 8 track recorder but I have a MiniDisc desk so I decided to "recreate" this album finding the full length versions of each song from cd and the odd bought Mp3 download, get the average levels per song pegged so everything sound roughly the same volume and copy to MiniDisc in the 8 track running order.

That compilation now sounds much better and runs for about a third longer.

Blame It on The Pony Express :love:

NIce choice.

Johnny Jenkins-"Ton-Ton Macoute!". Barely a fan of electric blues, much less '70s blues-rock, but this record is amazing. I learned recently that JJ's cover of Dr. John's "Walk On Guilded Splinters" provided the main sample for Beck's "Loser."

Cliff "Ukulele Ike" Edwards-"I Did It With My Little Ukulele"


Cliff was the guy who made ukuleles "happen" in the '20s. You probably know him as the voice of Jiminy Cricket (his comeback gig.) Of interest here: his version of "It Had To Be You" interpolates a lesser-known tune called "Paddlin' Madeleine." It's not what you would hope, but it's fun nonetheless.

V/A-"Cartagena! Curro Fuentes And The Big Band Cumbia And Descarga Sound Of Colombia 1962-72". The unwieldy title of the record kind of does the summarizing for me! Irresistible dance grooves.  


That artwork is amazing !
