Re: Listening to...

Lowell George: Thanks I'll eat it here

"Easy Money":

There was a Joe
Leanin' on the back door
A couple Jills with their eyes on a couple bills
Their eyes was statin'
They was waitin'
To get their hands on some easy money

They flipped a dime
One said " well, I'll take heads this time"
One stepped up
One stepped back
One loosened her shoulder strap
She couldn't speak,
Her knees got weak
She could almost taste that easy money

There was this old black cat
Sittin' in a old black cadillac
The Joe smelled sweet
She curled up at her boyfriend's feet
She said "I got a plan
Listen, Sam, how'd ya like to make some easy money ? "
He say, "yes! oh yes!
Jus' tell me what you want me to do "
She said, "Baby, you can trust me
Baby, but you must be hidin' in my room
At a quarter to two"
Well, the cat told the boy
"Come up to the room and play with my toy"
But the Jill set the bait
And she wasn't gonna sit around and wait
But this guy was wise to all the lies
And he flies out the door
With the easy money

Because there ain't no man
Who got the money in his hand
Who got any of that bread
Bein' slow in the head
The easier it looks
The hotter it hooks
There ain't no such thing as easy money
We say, "yes! oh yes!"
Saturday night
There was a terrible, terrible fight
Between two dames who was losin' the same game
It wasn't clear,
But I hear somebody was lookin' for some easy money

At my first meeting with the Atlanta Audio/Video Club we played some vinyl as someone brought in a Project Debut with an NAD phono stage ( I would have thought someone would have brought in a much better TT and phono stage), but it was musical enough and someone brought in a Doors lp and played Riders On The Storm, which sounded very good even on that inexpensive rig.

Wow, I am a bit jealous that you have an av club in Atlanta!

Keld, don't you love that hard dynamic hit early on side one of Thick As A Brick? And I completely concur with your assessment of the Doors on dvd-a, outstanding!

Keld, I love it SO much, it is the highlight of the album for me. Sometimes I am a bit let down after that great bit! If my records weren't mostly in storage I would go home and play it immediately!

Re: Listening to...

Keld, we had a flood in Nashville. We got 17 inches of rain in 24 hours! So our house got 2 feet of water in the ground floor. I lost about 50 records, nothing too precious. Well, I did lose Nilson's A Touch Of Schmillson In The Night, but I listened to it via a high res file last night, and it sounded sweet!

I have two boxes of records out of storage, but I am purchasing the little things that the flood carried away, a record brush, stylus cleaner, Disc Doctor fluid, stuff like that.

So I have been listening more to cds and computer files lately. NTTIAWWT.

Re: Listening to...

Ok, continuing from the thread I started marked 'Thank You.'

With my new-old PSB speakers, for the first time since I started paying attention to sound I'm not even a little anxious about what I'm hearing. In fact, I can't wait to get home and to the late part of the evening so that I can dig into the pile of music I accumulated over the last few years.

Last night's great moment was the first disc of the RCA 'Blanton-Webster Band' set. This is one of the oldest cds I own, and was made during the era when RCA was using a filtering system to clean up 78s (Sonic Solutions?) that I have never liked.

(I'm talking about the original issue from the late 80s, not 'Never No Lament,' which was a much later RCA/BMG reissue of the same set. I don't know whether it used the same sonic scrubbing.)

Anyway, I have never heard Ellington's music from the 40s sound so alive and full. This must be at least a distant relative of what the guys with 78s and McIntosh mono monitors and klipsch horns are hearing.

I also listened to the Dangermouse/Sparkle Horse 'Dark Night Of The Soul' collaboration, and am shocked by how much detail, how much music I get.

I know this is old hat, the reason why most of you are here in the first place stuff, but it's a revelation to me.

Re: Listening to...

Sorry, but I was an Eagles fan until Frye and big-head what's his face (Henley)decided to dis Felder, the best guitar player the Eagles had. I get so sick of the egos. I will not buy any more of their music.

It was Frye, Henley, and Walsh that blew the group up in the first place. Could someone tell Walsh he cannot sing.

Timothy B. Schmitt is a great bass player and I do pull out the DVD of When Hell Freezes Over once in a while.

Re: Listening to...

I believe you are totally right about that. All my records with the Eagles are from between 1975 and 1976 except "their Greatest Hits" (1971-1975). On DVD I have the Farewell tour and Hell Freezes Over, but the "real" Eagles are the albums around 1975 IMO.

Re: Listening to...

Jim, while I hear your point about the ego maniacs in the Eagles, I expect creative people in general and "stars" in particular to be nincompoop jerks. I mean, look at their politics!!!!

Elvis Costello had a great line: "Was it a millionaire who sang "Imagine no posessions," a stupid little schoolboy saying "We don't need no lessons." It is a great swipe at Lennon and Waters respectively, but it also sums up my thoughts on the personalities and crappy attitudes of the people whose music I love.

I expect them to be fairly useless individuals when they are not making music. Now there are obvious exceptions, but a cruddy musician with good morals is no fun to listen to. Good for a friend though. 8)

So when an aritist I enjoy does something stupid, I just say "What did you expect?" and play some music.

Great post!

I know a guy who have been a roadie for several big stars, and he told me that one of his buddies was fired on the spot when he shot a glance at Prince's gf backstage. Small dude with a super large ego! I so agree!
