That is not a record - that is a cross-section of a fucking tree. And it sounds like this.
This just proves that there is music everywhere around you in this world. Seeing music wherever you go is what you’re supposed to do. Hear colors, see sounds, smell sights, experience life differently.
Paul Simon’s legendary album, Graceland, celebrates it’s 25th anniversary this year with several special edition re-releases. One of my recent favorite artists, Bosco Delrey, has recorded a stunning cover/remix of Paul’s song, “I Know What I Know”. Check out the video above.
A lot of Zeppelin, when they started moving away from strictly bluesy sounding stuff (like the middle of their catalog), is when Jimmy Page started REALLY exploring the studio and what multi-tracking could let him lay on a record even as a single guitarist. People mention Stairway as an example, and I think Stairway is great, but it’s not even half a good example of the arrangements the guy played with. I wouldn’t try to pick out a “best”, but Levee is definitely a good one.
This tends to get stuck in my head when the rain starts flooding out of the drainage ditches around my property and coming up in the yard.
Carney - There She Goes
Amy Winehouse | Valerie (‘68 Version)
Amy recorded a slower version of this song (originally by The Zutons) in 2007 with Mark Ronson, but I prefer this version. It’s always pleasing for me to hear a song sung about a woman, by a woman, without any pretension, or attempt to be salacious and provocative. It’s just a simple song about missing someone you had a unique connection with.
I’ve been listening to a lot of music from the 1920s and 30s lately. It’s amazing to me how progressive some of these lyrics were, considering the time. The music as well is extremely captivating. This is one of my favorites, a song which was also featured in a 1932 Betty Boop cartoon.
I still don’t remember exactly how I found this album, but even after eight years, I’m really glad I did. If you dig this track, you’ll adore the entire album.
