I think that you may be confusing Pet Sounds with Sgt. Pepper...

Anyway, here is a fun and exciting artist: https://www.brittanyanjou.com/

Re: What are you listening to now?

Weak attempt at a save, but yes, musicians borrow.

Never cared for "Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite". Didn't like it in 67, and the "innovations" haven't aged well. Probably true of half of Sgt. Pepper. Pet Sounds and most of Revolver still sound fresh.

Re: What are you listening to now?

Did the Beatles ever write a better song than "She's Leaving Home"?

I've recently been spending some time with George Harrison's All Things Must Pass and Living in the Material World. For my money, these are the best post-Beatles LPs.

Re: What are you listening to now?

Gosh, I've always HATED "SLH"!!! But I'm absolutely with you on ATMP and LITMW. For kicks, look around YouTube for one particular outtake of "What Is Life" (not the joyous dancing chick one) that has Clapton's guitar right up to the fore, in full "Delaney and Bonnie" mode. Very different feel, maybe less magisterial.
Occasionally throw "Wonderwall" in the car cd player (NOT Oasis, for you non-Beton Brut readers.) There are also some nice bootlegs of the demos that Harrison played for Phil Spector before the recording of ATMP. More Dylanesque, no Leslie cabinet in evidence.

PS I like Leslie cabinets and have one, Model 18 I think.

I think some folks find it a bit "twee." It's the only thing of its kind not produced by George Martin. I love that the lyric is an invented reality drawn from a half-remembered newspaper story. Schubert, Mahler, and the Gershwin boys would have dug it...

I'll have to check that out.

Fascinating bit of kit. I think Johnny Greenwood and the lads in Mogwai use them.

No pedal can match the whump of a Leslie!

Here are some tidbits of Georgie's:





And the wiped Clapton work:

Re: What are you listening to now?

^ Fascinating, thanks T-dog.

Here's a George Harrison cover, an old favorite from the best band to ever emerge from Harvard University.

Very good, thanks! My young nephew thought it was REM!
And named after the first car I drove too, silver blue 2 door with a white vinyl top, 351 Cleveland, and a few on the tree.

^ I recall you mentioning that.

If I'm lucky, the centerpiece of my inevitable midlife crisis will be a '67 Galaxie in Highland Green with dark cordovan leather.

Re: What are you listening to now?

i hated SLH for years, then i started liking it.
i thought you guys would get my not subtle dis of Mr Kite suggesting
where they stole i mean got the idea from.


Sometimes when you hear a song, it kicks off a memory of a place you've been. Late last summer, i spent 3 weeks on the slopes of the San Francisco peaks just outside of Flagstaff, AZ. One day i was driving down a sparse, narrow road off i-40 (an ancient, well-preserved section of what comprised the old Rt66) and pulled up at rundown motel to get on my cell.
A guy walks up and says, "did you come to take a picture?"
The sun had just set. i was like, 'why?'

i had stumbled upon the little motel with no vacancy.

Re: What are you listening to now?

And now for something completely different...

I had the good fortune to see Blomstedt direct the BSO in Brahms 1 earlier this season. He's 91 and appears to have more energy than I do...

And on the piece, even if Dvořák didn't write another note, his 7th Symphony would still be one of the most significant works of the 19th Century.

If you're of a mind, crank this one up:

Re: What are you listening to now?

^ Great version of What is Life, Toby... the Clapton one... really excellent, did not know about it before.

In re: Beatles, Sgt Peppers is rarely listened to by me anymore, but I will never tire of it, from start to finish. But, Lovely Rita is probably one of my most mania-inducing tracks of all time. I don't use acronyms for Beatles songs, only band I ever did that for was for the Dead, and only to save time and space labeling endless live shows.

Thanks man! I love "Lovely Rita" too. The first time I heard it was in a strip club many, many years ago.
