markodarryl1958 on Showdown: Goats Head Soup vs Some Girls
Continued "From Goat's Head Soup to Some Girls" Now 49 years later I bought the 2020 two-disk reissue and still love it. My favorite track is the scandalous STAR STAR with her obscene Polaroids and her tricks with fruit, Ali McGraw and Steve McQueen, New York City, L.A. maybe even old John Wayne made it with this rock groupie before he died. But I digress. The real draw of STAR STAR is the blistering guitar work of Keith Richards and Mick Taylor (a la Chuck Berry) the band of Bill, Charlie, with Ian Stewart on piano and Mick Jagger's vocals drive it hard and harder till the fadeout. Keith took the lead from the first licks to the last, with Mick Taylor providing a masterful rhythm guitar track that allows Keith to shine in his most comfortable rock & roll role, the riff-master, every lick he ever played ripped off from Mr. Berry. The reissue is great! So to let it be on the record, top tier are Beggar's Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street. Goats Head Soup is next tier along with It's Only Rock & Roll, Black & Blue and Some Girls, but that's another chapter. -
markodarryl1958 on Showdown: Goats Head Soup vs Some Girls
Last Post: September 7, 2007 15 years ago people cared about The Rolling Stones with a passion. They debated albums that were already 30 to 35 years old. I am now going to share my thoughts titled "From Goat's Head Soup to Some Girls (The Decline & Fall of The Rolling Stones)." I was 15 in 1973 and bought my first real album, Goats' Head Soup by The Rolling Stones. I loved Silver Train and Star Star of course, still do. Coming Down Again is a pretty song with ugly lyrics. Angie is so out of character for the band that it works. I also love the horns on Heartbreaker and the lead guitar (of soon to quit Mick Taylor) on Hide Your Love and Winter.

After going through one VERY LOUD song at soundcheck, I asked the soundguy if there were drums and guitars in the drummer's monitor, because we were getting this giant blasting quadraphonic version of ourselves in addition to what we normally hear in our not too quiet rehearsals. "Oh yeah, it's all pushed cause you said you couldn't hear instruments in the monitor." I said, "No, I said we didn't need any instruments in the monitors." Oh. It got a little better, but still.

Hey, I remember this place! Sorry I've been away. The show went well. We were represented by Townspeople in all 4 bands. Everyone delivered. The crowd was good. It was super loud onstage, though - the soundman had the monitors cranked louder than the sound out to the audience. I had a serious scare regarding my hearing that cleared up a couple of days later. Yikes! It was also really sweaty in the club. I would be a world champion in sweating if there were competitive events for that, but I think I set a new personal best that night.

Checked out the Florry. I wouldn't recommend them if you're particular about on key vocals, (I'm not and I found the two-part disharmony, I think mostly on the guitar player singer to be appealing), but hang in for her guitar solo which is very good. She would work as the righteous rock guitar player in the aforementioned cowpunk band
cdmcdm on All Star Jam!
Garlic Salt, I'd love to see that cowpunk band although I think you need a sloppy but righteous rock guitar player for lead. Maybe someone like Westerburg or Steve Jones. Cool recommendations: US Paul Kelly from Al and Heatloaf from Garlic Salt.

I'M not the resident youngin'?? Now I feel basic and random. 8. Appreciate the local recommendations. Checking them all out now.
garlic saltgarlic salt on All Star Jam!
As the resident youngin’ I was really just excited to answer the last part of this question, but I’m going to answer the rest of them as well. 1. I have similar opinions to others. I think it’s a little overdone and tacky. I enjoy me a good tele but other than that not much to love for me. 2. My ultimate band is going to be a backing band for Art Alekasis in an attempt to force him back to his cowpunk roots. This will consist of Country Dick Montana from the Beat Farmers on Drums (and backup vocals), Gram Parsons on guitar, and Murray Hammond from the Old 97s on bass. 3. Alright, now to mess it up. I’m going to put Adam Duritz on guitar and backup vocals because I think there’s no way he won’t try and take center stage, Neil Peart to ruin the country sound, and Thundercat on bass because that is essentially having another lead guitar. 4. Honestly, I haven’t been to many big shows lately, mainly because I find that I enjoy local bands and smaller shows more than the big ones, so I’m going to have to skip. 5. The best guitar solo in the Beatles catalogue is Dig A Pony for me. But I don’t listen to much Beatles so that’s probably not the best. 6. Yes. Wholeheartedly. Almost every instrument belongs in rock music in some context or another. 7. I enjoy them when used tastefully. It can be excessive or overused but when it sounds good it can sound really good. 8. Alright here’s my short list of local Philly bands I think people should really check out, along with a short descriptor. I’m trying to limit it to people I’ve seen in a basement. Gloss: funky r&b indie group (listen to Play Myself Again), Attack Dog: punk, interesting production since it’s all done by one dude in GarageBand (listen to Young Lion), Heatloaf: indie, has really interesting harmonies (listen to: shoulder to die on). Finally, this is the best band I’ve seen in the past while, Florry. They a fantastic band with a rather large amount of people. When I saw them they had a guy play lap steel but I’m pretty sure they have a pedal steel player now. Check out this video of them playing at PhilaMOCA. Skip to 16:37 for my personal fav song. https://youtu.be/UZ6M86ylBXk?t=997

I really like that Dalton album but understand that the voice can be as much of a turn off for some as it is a turn on for others. The Harvey Brooks production on that record is really cool. For example, he plays a really busy, complex line on "In a Station" but also can strip the bass down to a primitive repetitive droney line that sounds like a gifted post-punk beginner (think Wobble) for "Something on Your Mind." There's a recently released straight style outtake of SOYM that sounds like it might be the exact same vocal take with a very standard country rock feel arrangement. There's no way that that version would have had the impact of the original which has landed in a million soundtracks. That change let the backing match the otherworldliness of the vocal.

I knew Geoff Muldaur name mainly because he had sung harmony with John Cale on Guts and Darling I Need You on the Slow Dazzle album. I enjoyed the Geoff/Maria duo albums, but they were basically unreconstructed folkies who never learned how to write songs. This is the exact opposite of Bobby Charles, who apparently never learned how to play even minimal guitar or piano. He would write the songs in his head, and somehow transmit them to musicians who had to work out the chords on their own. I'm still bowled over by that. I tried with Karen Dalton, but I just couldn't handle her voice at all. Reading about her backstory didn't help. When I read about this period nowadays, I often am amazed that anybody produced recordings of any value, given the amount of drugs and alcohol that were being consumed.

Chiming in late with two comments. That Wet Leg thing was great. There was a live four song set on Youtube that maintained the quality standard. I saw they were touring in March, but after being booked in a small room, Philamoca, and moved up to a larger room, Underground Arts, the show was already sold out. road trip to New York or DC maybe? In the list of Woodstock of Woodstock related acts, BigSteve mentioned, Geoff and Maria Muldaur whose "Pottery Pie" album is excellent. He also neglected to mention Karen Dalton, whose "In My Own Time" album is arguably the best of the scene.

Let me know when you have the Paul Kelly show as I'm another fan. I started with those same albums and bought a few others in the decade that followed but none grabbed me in the same way. Way way back in the early days of the pandemic in 2020 I bought a two disc best of as a way to catch up but that is still on the shelf unplayed and I'm still not caught up. When you do the show, make it a Robbie Fulks-type mash-up and do both Paul Kellys. Include the early '70s southern soul Paul Kelly. He did some really great stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Giia2Y_Jdc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMkq9VebrsQ He put out another album in the mid-'90s called Gonna Stick & Stay that was throwback great. This is a cut from that https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZrzi7Z5mXI I like the southern hemisphere Paul Kelly just fine but i think the southern US Paul Kelly is my favorite. Who can name two other artists with the same name?

8. What have you been listening to lately? Have you found any interesting music that is new or new to you? I've been reading Small Town Talk, Barney Hoskins' book about Woodstock NY and the music scene there radiating out from Albert Grossman. So I've been immersed in lots of that, stuff that I know (the expanded reissues of Stage Fright and Cahoots, early Van Morrison, late Hendrix, and especially Bobby Charles), plus lots of stuff I missed (Geoff and Maria Muldaur, Paul Butterfield, Todd Rundgren, Great Speckled Bird, early Bonnie Raitt, etc.). My favorite albums of last year were Prime Ribs by Sleaford Mods, Live in Paris by the Master Musicians of Jajouka, Fire by The Bug, and the album Floating Points made with Pharaoh Sanders titled Promises. For more recent releases, I like the new Caetano Veloso, Meu Coco, Ben LaMar Gay's Open Arms to Open Us, the recent Sunn O))) album, Metta-Benevolence, and former Tortoise guitarist Jeff Parker's album of solo jazz guitar, Forfolks.

1. What do you think of this performance of “Let My Love Open the Door?” Do you have any comments on the song, the performance, the fashion choices or anything else? I'm a big fan of fretless bass (I own one myself) and especially of Mick Karn. The Tin Drum album is perfection, and I can't imagine it without his sound. I think his bass is mixed poorly in this song. Phil Collins is playing like he should be wearing shorts. Pete's eyes look like he woke up in a Soho doorway. 5. What is the best guitar solo in the Beatles catalog? Slow Down 6. Do accordions belong in rock music? Yes, especially if Garth Hudson is playing one. Zydeco is technically not Rock, but I had the pleasure of catching zydeco master Beau Jocque at Rock'n'Bowl in the early aughts, and it was about the most rocking thing I've ever seen. 7. Odd meters (talking songs in 5, 7, etc): are they pretentious? Do you have a favorite song in an odd meter? They're not always pretentious, but I'm kind of pro-pretension. King Crimson's Red is my favorite. It features an assortment of odd meters.

Trigmo, I dug Chaise Lounge. It is enjoyable. The video helps carry the humor of the song too. Precious, but it works.

Great to hear there is another Paul Kelly fan. I feel like we are few and far between in the US. I'm really familiar with Under the Sun, So Much water, and my entry point, Gossip. I have a few of his other albums though, including one he put out a few years ago. I've thought about putting a band together to do a one-off show at Fergie's or something but I only know one other person who would turn up for it.

5. I think And Your Bird Can Sing harmony solos are actually done by George and Paul. Paul keeps moving up the Beatles Power Rankings. 8. I heard one new thing (for me at least) when listening to college radio in the car. The band is named Idles and the song was Grounds. It has a really strange post-punk sound and arrangement, and the singer's very pronounced English (Cockney?) accent is a treat. Small p political kind of lyrics. Is this a band everyone knows already and I'm just late to the party? There's a crappy video for the song too where the music starts 30 seconds in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRkUt9VnaR0

1. What do you think of this performance of “Let My Love Open the Door?” Do you have any comments on the song, the performance, the fashion choices or anything else? The performance is off-putting. Totally agree w/ cdm about the super annoying fretless bass. I have always liked this song, but this rendition is sub-par. It lacks the precision of the album track and Simon Philips’ drumming, although I wouldn’t really blame Phil Collins as this looks to be a hastily thrown together affair. Speaking of Phil, the Jimmy Buffett wardrobe does not work. (By the way, I learned at some point that the narrator of this song is supposed to be God rather than Pete. It's a little less charming now.) 

2. You’ve been given the opportunity to form a band for your favorite underrated songwriter or singer/front-person. Who is the “star” and who is in the band? You want to put together a surprising yet appropriate group. What unlikely or never-considered musical collaboration would you put together? Maybe I will take Matt Johnson of The The, and force him to front a power pop band comprised of Graham Maby on bass (Joe Jackson), a resurrected Bruce Gary on drums (The Knack), and Elliot Easton on guitar (The Cars).

 3. Uh-oh, your favorite underrated songwriter turned out to be difficult to work with! You’ve decided to scrap that band and put together the worst possible band, just to be creatively vengeful. Who is in this band now? Oh, Matt, you horrible person! Put down your guitar and rely on your new backing band: Don Henley on drums, Les Claypool on bass, and a resurrected Lou Reed on guitar.

 5. What is the best guitar solo in the Beatles catalog? GREAT choices by cdm and chickenfrank. The first thing that popped into my head was “Taxman”, but I feel bad that it’s apparently Paul playing. 

6. Do accordions belong in rock music? I cannot think of a good example but if it works, OK.

 7. Odd meters (talking songs in 5, 7, etc): are they pretentious? Do you have a favorite song in an odd meter? If they groove, they can be great! Trying to think of a good example. XTC’s “The Man Who Sailed Around His Soul” feels natural in 7/8. Led Zeppelin’s “Four Sticks” I think goes between 5/8 and 6/8 fairly easily. I find 5/4 can sometimes sound as natural as 4/4 but can’t think of an example other than one of my own tunes at the moment.

 I dig the 80's/90's-era King Crimson that throws in odd meters while still rocking, like the middle of "Three of a Perfect Pair", or "Elektrik". 8. What have you been listening to lately? Have you found any interesting music that is new or new to you? I stumbled upon a reference to a song “Chaise Lounge” by some group called “Wet Leg” and looked it up. Effectively catchy and simple. Is it too precious and stupid, or just enjoyable? https://youtu.be/Zd9jeJk2UHQ I am enthralled by the discovery of The Dirty Knobs’ “I Still Love You”. Wow! A colossal riff that is, I don’t know, Zeppelin-esque? and the rest of the guitar arrangement is so cool. https://youtu.be/wwBolUahbOI
SirLaurenceOblivious on All Star Jam!
5. I have to agree with 'And Your Bird Can Sing.' There was a story floating around awhile back about some dude who painstakingly learned the solo and was crestfallen when informed it's double-tracked. That might be a Rock urban legend. 6. Yes. My first Rockabilly overdose was a Dave Edmunds show. I don't know his name, but the accordion player was ripping it up. And if you hear uptempo Zydeco, it definitely rocks. 7. 'Hold Your Head Up' by Argent- pretty much the only Prog band I've ever tolerated- is in 5/4. 8. Head over to the old internet and look up Dea Matrona. Survey many of their songs and they will impress with their range and potential. Plus, they are arguably the handsomest band ever.
chickenfrank on All Star Jam!
1. That song falls into the category of so many solo McCartney songs. It doesn't seem substantial enough to be worthy of such and important songwriter as Townshend, but I find myself singing along despite myself. Like Mac's Let Em In. That's a good live version of it. Don't like Phil's Hawaiian shirt. Don't like Pete looking like he wandered off the stage of The Nutcracker. He also has a Klaus Nomi thing happening with his hair. It was hard to look cool in the 80s. 5. Solo"s"! The guitar solos on The End is a Beatles fanatic's Mt. Olympus. Getting to hear the 3 of them trade off like that is gratifying on so many different levels. And reading the studio notes of how they did it all together in the same room simultaneously AND as a one-take Charlie! Allow me this adjective one time: Magical.

1. What do you think of this performance of “Let My Love Open the Door?” Do you have any comments on the song, the performance, the fashion choices or anything else? I actually like the song itself but the fashion choices and arrangement are very much "of a time" and that time was one of bad fashion and arrangements. Phil Collins' drumming is great, the fretless bass is annoying, and everything else falls somewhere between. 2. You’ve been given the opportunity to form a band for your favorite underrated songwriter or singer/front-person. Who is the “star” and who is in the band? You want to put together a surprising yet appropriate group. What unlikely or never-considered musical collaboration would you put together? Since last May, I've been posting "Birthday Supergroups" on Facebook. The first one is still probably the best: Joey Ramone on vocals, Pete Townsend on guitar, Dusty Hill on bass, and Phil Rudd on drums. If I'm starting from scratch, I would have the guy from the Knack and Marc Ribot on guitar, Duck Dunn on bass, Jim Keltner or Jim Gordon on drums, and the singer songwriter would either be Paul Kelly or Peter Case. 3. Uh-oh, your favorite underrated songwriter turned out to be difficult to work with! You’ve decided to scrap that band and put together the worst possible band, just to be creatively vengeful. Who is in this band now? Anthony Kiedis and Natalie Merchant on vocals, John Popper on harmonica, CC DeVille on guitar, Jaco Pastorious on bass, Terry Bozzio (or pretty much anyone who played drums for Zappa). After the 4 count, everyone could just go apeshit and play as many notes as possible without regard to what else was going on in the song, while Anthony Kiedis did his Joe-Rogan-as-a-rock-star schtick and Natalie Merchant scolded everyone. 4. Have you ever been to a show headlined by a known artist (ie not a “local” band) where the audience cleared out? Who was the artist and why did everyone leave? No but there are some where the audience should have, like when the Dead backed up Bob Dylan 5. What is the best guitar solo in the Beatles catalog? The one in their best song: And Your Bird can Sing 6. Do accordions belong in rock music? Yes: roots rock, Rain Dogs, etc 7. Odd meters (talking songs in 5, 7, etc): are they pretentious? Do you have a favorite song in an odd meter? If they feel natural then I don't think they are pretentious, like Money by Pink Floyd (which might be pretentious for other reasons), Solsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel, or Hey Ya by Outcast. On the other hand, if it feels self conscious like Happiness is a Warm Gun, or some Radio head songs, then maybe they are pretentious because they feel more like a musical flex than a song idea. My favorites are probably the Eleven by the Dead or I Say a Little Prayer. 8. What have you been listening to lately? Have you found any interesting music that is new or new to you? Left to my own devices, I'm still just listening to a lot of podcasts and an audio book about Robert Moses (66 hours long for fuck's sake!). But my kids continue to expose me to new music, some good, some "meh". The music is generally not new, but it's new to me. The good stuff includes things like Sundress by ASAP Rocky(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ec3LoKpGJxY), Hell and back by Bakar (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdrNvQ4YCng), Right as Rain from Adele's first album (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2ZmMjgp6JE), Hey Lover by the Daughters of Eve (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwyzBdBJAH0 How did I never hear this before?), and a bunch of Kanye, Meek Mill, and even the occasional Lana Del Rey song. The "meh" stuff includes most of the trap music I hear.

It took me forever to finally watch these films - we had houseguests over Thanksgiving, I didn’t want to watch with everyone around. There’s been so much discussion and parsing of these films, I’m not sure how much more I have to add. It always seemed that Glyn Johns got stiffed, in that he recorded a Beatles album but it didn’t come out so it’s like it didn’t happen. I’m glad to see him getting his due. Watching Billy Preston is a thrill - you know when you’re around somebody who has a cosmic relationship with their instrument - it’s more than virtuosity. He was a good hang and everything he played was tasty. It was interesting to me to see the slow accumulation of music equipment rolling in. They ask for it, and it appears. Seeing these things that I think of as vintage pieces, coming brand-new out of boxes, is fun. I’ve never seen a Leslie cabinet come out of a box, I’ve only seen them old, scratched and a little beaten up. That Fender Rhodes with the sparkle top? Way cool. It’s funny too, how they are conscious of the rooftop concert as part of the narrative, “we can make it look like we had to stop because of the police” when really, they did everything they set out to do without interference. I also wondered if it would be mentioned anywhere that Paul’s original Hofner bass, the one he played at the Cavern, was stolen from Twickenham studios during the first week and has never been found. This seems to be a downplayed thread of the Beatles story, but I guess Paul just swallowed the loss. George helping Ringo with “Octopus’ Garden” was fun too, because Ringo rolled out this snippet of non-spectacular music, and George was right there helping, tossing out ideas. I didn’t find Yoko’s presence intrusive, nobody seemed bothered by her (or by any non-Beatles in the room), they just seemed to carry on, used to tuning out the hubbub around them. At some points, I found the clean-up job on the film a little artificial looking, like those digital filters on Zoom, but overall it looked and sounded fantastic. I was concerned this was going to be a sanitized, jollified version of the events, but even with their awareness of the cameras, there is plenty of insight to be had about the inner relationships of the band members (and crew) and their creative processes. I was mesmerized.

The roadies for sure, and maybe the band too. Granted, it's an awesome flash move, but he sure seems to lose the beat when he hits the middle of the song. RGM: 1969 TCB: 1973 Advantage, Seger.

I enjoyed the Gopnik article.

I'm late to this party. Took me a few weeks to watch it all, as much because, in a surprise to me, my wife wanted to watch it all, and that involved coordinating times. I loved it but i knew i would. And at times I felt the same excitement that i still remember from that night almost 58 years ago when that 9 year old kid knew his life had changed. And i loved it even as I recognize that a lot of the criticisms I've read are true. But then the Beatles could rarely do anything wrong in my estimation and that continues with this. Here is a great review/commentary on the movie. It says a lot of what I think about the epic and, since it's written by Adam Gopnik, one of my favorite New Yorker writers, far better than I could say it. https://www.newyorker.com/culture/cultural-comment/a-close-read-of-the-beatles-in-get-back?utm_source=nl&utm_brand=tny&utm_mailing=TNY_Daily_Control_121621&utm_campaign=aud-dev&utm_medium=email&utm_term=tny_daily_recirc&bxid=5be9cfae3f92a40469df824b&cndid=23529212&hasha=5aabb756f418d5aff3bda008553b27da&hashb=502d10820a7479514d4362866c295d7170a8ae0c&hashc=86b78351d51e63880b1d27bbebb210cba393e67cdb68f4ea1fe2545908ceb938&esrc=
chickenfrank on Hey, Rock Town Hall, Get Back To Where You Once Belonged!
An observation I had about the best scene, the Get Back inception scene, is that Paul writes the thing on his Hofner bass. He's strumming it like a guitar, and it sounds good! George is barely playing, and Paul is getting a nice clear melodic sound he can sing along to without the low notes just making a bottom-y mess. Can't wait to go into Sam Ash and start playing the guitar part to Pinball Wizard on a Hofner bass until they kick me out.
mockcarrmockcarr on Hey, Rock Town Hall, Get Back To Where You Once Belonged!
I have a list of observations. The film looks so much better. I like hearing them sing each other’s songs, i.e., Paul singing I’m So Tired, John making up even goofier words to Ob La Di, George singing Every Little Thing as a suggestion for one they could play live. That Glynnis thing John bullied Glyn Johns with got tiresome very quickly. I am still surprised that they chose the inferior arrangements of Two Of Us and One After 909 to record. Watching a jam turn into Get Back is fucking awesome and makes me understand that tune better. Mal deserves royalties, it must be the tip of the iceberg watching him be their patient lackey for a few weeks, imagine years of that! Tea towels on the snare? I’m glad Ringo let that idea go eventually. John has a Marty Feldman-like quality when he farts around here.

Best album cover? Yeah, I'll agree with Whipped Cream and Other Delights. Best cover of a Rock song? If Rock includes ballads- and it does- the champ has got to be 'Without You.' Nilsson took a very nice Badfinger song and made it as monumental as the pyramids.
