My entry point into the Beatles was through this, classic, triple album.
It’s been over 35 years since Paul McCartney and Wings embarked on their memorable “Wings Over America” tour – and next week, their classic 1976 live album from that journey will be rereleased as a remastered version with new bonus material. Listen exclusively to the remastered version of Wings Over America in advance of its May 28th release.
North Mississippi Allstars - Stray Cat Blues
The things about the Stones is that, during their most productive phase (Beggars, Bleed, Fingers, Exile, Goats) (Yea, maybe Rock ‘n Roll, Black and Blue, Some Girls, Emotional Rescue fits there too) they wrote songs about being the Rolling Stones. Great ones. They wrote about being themselves. I have a theory that this only increased their legend and popularity because it presented a world, maybe mythical, that everyone wished they could be part of. In other words, they wrote songs about how awesome it was to be the Stones. Strange.
There are going to be times when we can’t wait for somebody. Now, you’re either on the bus or off the bus. If you’re on the bus, and you get left behind, then you’ll find it again. If you’re off the bus in the first place — then it won’t make a damn.
— Ken Kesey
Gil Scott-Heron—“Paint It Black” [Spoken Word]
Small Talk at 125th and Lenox (Flying Dutchman 1970).
Funkadelic - I Got A Thing, You Got a Thing, Everybody’s Got a Thing
So good, the intense desperation of the song always got it.
Sounds unlike anything else, then or since.
Rockers never got quite as dirty as Bon Scott. Scott sounded as if you could catch a disease by listening to him. He sounded like the gateman at hell, somebody who never hid the notion that lurking behind the door are some bad, dangerous things, but they’re also fun, too, and he made no apologies for that.

CocoRosie - After The Afterlife
Opening track from the new record which comes out next week. I cannot wait. Typical CocoRosie weirdness - its’s electronic, it’s acoustic, it’s pop, it’s not.
X - Johnny Hit and Run Paulene
And the second song off the first X record. Also incredible.
