Probably my fave Jane's Addiction song. This one is over the top and has it all: maracas, sexy dancers, simulated back door sex, ASL signer who is signing a guitar solo, an actual drum solo, big stage, Chicago skyline. It's rock and roll baby, just go with it.
I haven't bought into the vinyl renaissance. Part of the reason is that I've bought vinyl when I was a kid and young adult, then cassettes, then CDs, now streaming services. I'm not going back to buying albums that I've owned on like three other platforms. Also I like the long playing feature that CDs, I-tunes, and streaming services provides. I do have about 20-30 albums that I've kept or collected along the way that I will listen to occasionally, but not often.
However, I am a sucker for 7" singles and continue to scour record stores and bookstores for cool singles, especially older classic singles, 70's AM Radio hits, and punk singles from the 1970s and early 1980s. I'm not looking for pristine copies that are collectibles, but actually well used (to a degree) records from the era. I also have an older type record player with a tinny speaker.
Basically I love listening to I Want to Hold Your Hand, Heartbreak Hotel, Brown Eyed Girl, etc., as they were probably listened to by some teenager some 50, 60 years ago. It's a thrill to think that someone was probably in their rec room or bedroom listening to this same record and hearing Elvis for the first time, or the Beatles after just seeing them on the Ed Sullivan show.
Have you gotten back into vinyl? Do your parents or grandparents still have a stash of 45rpms stuck in a closet somewhere (if so, hit me up). Do you sometimes just listen to old records and go over the cover, liner notes, and photos?
Also, drop 'em if you got 'em.
These guys should have been a lot more popular. They have like 3 absolutely perfect albums. Rare video from a High School Gym
Not a huge Blonde Redhead fan, but this song is amazing.
Going to turn it down a bit to a nice jam. Sit back and enjoy.
Good morning and Happy February. I'm going to play some lesser known rock and jam songs this week so better start off with a bang.
Can anyone but Bob Dylan drop a nearly 17 minute song about the death of JFK almost 57 years after the fell event and not only it feel timely but also reflects on the year 2020? Also the "video" for the song is just sepia-tinged official JFK portrait.
Neil Young is 75 years old today which is definitely worthy of a FMD post. One of those artists I discovered when I was a teenager that I have loved consistently ever since. Although he hasn't put out anything lately that I have found super compelling, he's also been releasing a bunch of stuff from the archives that have been amazing. I can continue to listen to both live recordings and album releases from each decade since the 60's and do so frequently.
Happy Birthday Neil, this note's for you.
