All-Star Jam Posted by Mr. Moderator Apr 202013 May you enjoy a return to some peace of mind, friends in Boston! 11 Responses to “All-Star Jam” cliff sovinsanity says: 04/20/2013 at 12:11 pm If anyone simply needs to laugh until it hurts, I highly recommend this 45 minute clip of Paul Stanley stage banter, or “Paul Stanley Having Fun On Stage” https://soundcloud.com/christopher-armes/45-minutes-of-paul-stanley#play 0 High Five sammymaudlin says: 04/20/2013 at 12:34 pm From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere. 0 High Five k. says: 04/20/2013 at 12:54 pm One of the founders of big time album designers Hipgnosis, Storm Thorgerson, has died. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Storm_Thorgerson Check those credits at the end and that doesn’t even include what he did with Hipgnosis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hipgnosis#Discography Personally, I thought Zeppelin’s In Through the Out Door was a fascinating package. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 04/20/2013 at 1:33 pm I loved those album covers. Some of them were so good I was willing to give the artists whose covers he designed a second listen. I’m not sure any Pink Floyd album whose cover he designed, for example, would have gotten a second (at best) spin without his artwork. I didn’t realize until today that he did Ween’s cover for The Mollusk. http://criticalmassesmedia.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/weenmollusk.jpg 0 High Five sammymaudlin says: 04/20/2013 at 4:30 pm He was a great man. 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 04/20/2013 at 5:27 pm I went out to record store day today. I did alright, finding a few of the things on my list, like Big Star and Buffalo Killers. I was digging through the bins in a small used record and vintage store and found a copy of Nixon’s Head – Traps, Buckshot and Pelts. It looked like it was in good shape, so it has a new home. 0 High Five funoka says: 04/20/2013 at 7:06 pm He has one that is regarded in many circles as the worst of all time I think — one for The Cranberries. http://www.virginmedia.com/music/features/worst-album-covers.php?page=12 0 High Five mugwort says: 04/20/2013 at 10:51 pm Well at least some of his album covers were great. Can’t bat 1000 all the time. 0 High Five funoka says: 04/21/2013 at 6:07 am Absolutely . . . It was just strange that I read about the cover being bad earlier this week and — had not even known it was his — and then learn of his passing in the New York Times. 0 High Five Mr. Moderator says: 04/21/2013 at 5:58 pm You paid money for that crap? Well, thank you. Ah, we had fun shows in Cleveland and Akron. Maybe your copy was originally purchased by some kid at one of those shows. If so, too bad that kid grew up and developed bad taste:) 0 High Five 2000 Man says: 04/22/2013 at 12:49 pm I’m not sure where it came from, but it was dirty. A run through my little Spin Clean thingy made it look brand new, and it sounds pretty good, too. I left a lot of good looking stuff on the shelves, but I showed my kid the correct way to go record shopping – I spent everything I had, and didn’t even have enough left to buy a Coke. I saw a Roy Loney album I’m gonna have to go back for, and I saw a Big Dipper record from like 2008 or 2006. Is that any good? 0 High Five Leave a ReplyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
