  1. The Rock Scene

    by RITCHIE YORKE

    WINNIPEG FREE PRESS, OCTOBER 16,1971

    Page says there will not be as long a gap between the new album and next one as there was between

    Led Zeppelin III and the latest release.

    "But we do have a lot of stuff in the can. Easily enough for another album. We've never had so much of our material down on tape at one time.

    First part is Bulloney! It took 13 months from the time III was released till IV. Then it took 16-17 months till HotH was released after IV!

    And this part, "we do have a lot of stuff in the can". Well, some of the stuff eventually made it on Coda, but NONE of HotH had been recorded yet as far as I know.

    So where's the rest from the can?

    An individually numbered limited edition

    of 4,500 Copies.

    84 Tracks

    60 Previously Unreleased

    3-CD Set

    From the group’s pre-fab inception, The Monkees’ albums were the brainchild music industry veteran Don Kirshner. The Monkees started out being actors playing the parts of musicians singing songs written by and selected for them by others. They supplied the singing voices to music performed by session players.

    In 1967, this changed. After a series of creative tug-of-wars, Kirshner was out of the picture and Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, Davy Jones and Micky Dolenz were -for the first time ever- given creative control over the making of a Monkees album. They now found themselves at RCA Studio C in Hollywood as a working band, just as they had always been on the small screen. And the album they were about to create, Headquarters, would be released on May 20, 1967; a month later it would hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and remain in the Top Ten for almost three months.

    The Monkees Headquarters Sessions is an 84-track 3-CD set which contains 60 previously unreleased recordings and which also includes the complete original mono mixes of the album on compact disc for the first time anywhere. Researched and compiled by longtime Monkee maniacs Andrew Sandoval and Bill Inglot, Headquarters Sessions collects almost four hours of unique audio insight into the recording of this Monkee milestone. It includes almost three-and-one-half-hours of alternate takes, demos, backing tracks, and recording session audio hijinx never before preserved on compact disc.

    It's fascinating. :)

  3. Sweet! :thumbsup:

    ..and only $25?! Wow!

    It's because it's a "warmup" gig. Fairly informal and intimate. Fripp is very casual and will engage with fans and even laugh and smile! :lol: All tix are the same price and it's first come, first serve for the best seats. Needless to say I'll get the best seat as I always go to the venue's about 3 hours prior to doors and shoot the breeze with all the arriving fans.

    That's what I did last night and I got right under Kim Gordon EXACTLY where I wanted to be for Sonic Youth. Those tickets were also only $25.

  4. True. We can say anything in any topic about anything when it comes down to it.

    But when we're talking about singing and you mention that John loved Yoko etc. and that's all you need to know. What the hell, does that validate her singing? Is that what you're saying ? Her admiration from John allows for her singing to be appreciated?

    Sure, you can say whatever you want and so can I. John Lennon might have high praises and love for art that reveals itself in a scribbled "yes" on a ceiling, but that's nonsense/nonart to me. His peculiar taste in art doesn't make his music any more or less appealing. Matter of fact it has NOTHING to do with it.

  5. This thread is about annoying singers I thought.

    I know when I've mentioned Yoko Ono and Joan Baez I'm talking about their voices. I'm sure they're nice people, but that doesn't affect their voices to me. I can't stand them. Yoko's screetching wail and Joan's warble suck in my opinion.

    I couldn't care less about what kind of humanitarian or other artistic contributions they make when it comes to their singing.

    They might do well on American Idol though. That's about how much respect I have for that show.

  6. I think many of Bob Dylan's original songs have been done better by others in some instances. But the original's in their arrangements and musical accompanyist's wouldn't sound right without Bob's peculiar vocal stylings.

    However, I'm reminded of a vocalist who sang with him often that I CAN'T stand

    JOAN BAEZ !

    "Come and party with me, y'all," exhorts Bill Summers on Los Hombres Calientes' latest multi-culti celebration, telling you not only what the album is about and where he and co-leader Irvin Mayfield are from--the South, New Orleans to be precise--but also what their attitude is in breezing through Cuban and Brazilian styles, funk and jazz, samba and mambo and salsa. Though they have an agenda as world travelers, they're neither purists nor rootsologists; they're mostly after a good time and will toss anything into the mix to attain it. On "Carnival," their deepest and most sustained effort, their ability to synthesize styles is so secure, tributes to a pair of Crescent City legends, piano maven James Booker and bass funkster George Porter of Meters fame rub off happily on West African and Congolese numbers, and vice versa. Reaching back to the Satchmo tradition with his high, hard-edged, trilling solos, but flashing modernistic colors as well, Mayfield rides over and through the sound while Summer keeps things percolating on his usual assortment of percussion instruments. The hometown cast includes the Rebirth Brass Band, Kermit Ruffins and the Mardis Gras Indians. Party on, indeed. --Lloyd Sachs

  8. I don't know about the Mirage but at most public fountains the money collected is donated to a charity.

    Well the non-panhandler was just keeping the middleman fees out of it. He should have been hired for his astute money management skills!

    :lol:

  9. I know you meant that in a good way, but the whole granddaughter thing is wrong on so many levels. :lol:

    I thought it sounded better than saying he looked like he could be her grandfather.

  10. Andy Partridge of XTC can be annoying at times

    Les Claypool of Primus can irritate

    Michael McDonald of Doobies, Steely Dan etc. should shut the fuck up

    Christopher Cross is in the same category as M. McDonald

    Rod Stewart sucks, except his earliest singing

    Steve Perry sucks donkey dicks

    Yoko Ono is the worst

    Buck Owens, I just can't watch him when he sings

    William Hung, what kind of crap is that?

  11. Only major horse race I've been to was the 1984 Kentucky Derby. I was so wasted on Cap'n Morgan spiced rum I don't remember anything about the horses. Nor did I ever even see one. There were so many people on the infield where I was all I could do was hang out on a small hill overlooking the women's bathroom where guys would yell at the chicks to show your tits! It was tradition and many ladies did it! :D

    I did see a friend from several states away just roaming around though too.

    I remember going in and the entrance sign said NO BOOZE to be brought in. So I quickly drank some of my coke and filled the 2 liter up with the pint of rum. The gate attendent opened my bottle cap, smelled the coke and looked me right in the eye and said, GO IN. He screwed the cap back on and gave me my bottle! I was happy.

    That was my horse racing story.

  12. All cassettes

    Thank you for letting this be known. I'd always been curious.

    Do you know what brand he used? And I wonder if he used a Nakamichi deck or what?

    So those stolen soundboard bootlegs that have come out were from cassette. Fascinating. I wonder too, if these most recent soundboards, Vancouver '75 etc. are from his personal collection or from the sound crew tapping into the boards during the shows. And if they're also cassettes.
