I figured if you like them, they're worth a listen. So I checked out their website, listened to some songs -- not bad! I see they're a local (NC) band.

I like what I hear too.

I've been aware of The Love Language for quite some time now so when an opportunity to see them finally arose over the weekend I took it. Actually, I ended up seeing them twice, once at an in-store appearance in the afternoon and a show later on that evening. The in-store was particularly unique because they learned a song by one of their opening bands (Gross Ghost) which they did in their set. You just don't see that sort of thing. It spoke heavily of The Love Language and it made me arrive at the show in plenty of time to catch Gross Ghost (who were also great, btw).

They kind of reminds me a little of Glasvegas.. Don't know if you've heard them.. Although Glasvegas songs are more simple in their construction.

Thanks, I'll have to check them out. My impression of the Love Language is one of a band who puts out a very positive vibe. To witness them live as the crowd gets all caught up in it is quite the experience.

Six ass kickin' 50's and 60's 45's! Money well spent:

Little Walter - Last Night / Mellow Down Easy (Checker 1954)

I've got this fab 45 but I just had to upgrade it to a better copy. Mellow Down Easy ROCKS!!!

Black Crowes and Jimmy Page did a nice cover of it on their live collaboration.

Lee Rogers - You're The Cream of The Crop / Somebody Else Will (D-Town 1965)

Great bluesy r'n'b, will do magic on the dancefloor!!

The Shoelaces - Ball And Chain / Work Song (Brite Leaf 1963)

I don't know shit about this group and release, but it's frickin' great! Both sides!!

Lonnie Russ - Tell Me How / Flip Flop (4J 1963)

Lonnie released another 45 called My Wife Can't Cook which is quite popular among collectors. This one is a great dancer too!

The Volumes - Monkey Hop / Why (Old Town 1964)

I've seen this single go for $150 but I got it for nothing in compare to that. Monkey Hop is great early r'n'b which is top notch for the dancefloor. Why is classic doo wop.

Johnny Talbot - Never Make Your Baby Cry Pt 1 / Never Make Your Baby Cry Pt 2 (Modern 1965)

Great swingin' r'n'b from Oakland!!

Arcade Fire: Funeral and Neon Bible

Have you seen this video from their newest record? If not, you owe it to yourself to check it out. In fact, I recommend it to folks that aren't even familiar with Arcade Fire. It's really quite unique in that it's an interactive video. I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've ever seen anything like this.

On cassette: Hooligans by the Who and Heartbeat City by the Cars.

I also got a free download off Amazon: "Sand", from Heart's new album Red Velvet Car. It's a really beautiful song! I can't wait to buy the album. :D

Those are truly fantastic purchases there! "Abbey Road" is a gem (my favourite songs are "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Come Together", "Because" and "Oh Darling" and after "The Dark Side of The Moon", "Obscured By Clouds" is my second favourite album by Pink Floyd of all time! All I can say is "Congratulations and enjoy". :D

It was a double purchase via Amazon, so I'd get the Super Saver Free Shipping.

The DVD of the movie "2012". The movie itself is a joke and so over the top, but great special effects. Quite entertaining.

Robert's new "Band Of Joy" cd, which I love and am playing to death.

Went by a second hand vinyl store this evening when I was heading home from work. Got a little inspired to look for Black Sabbath albums that I don't have.. Ended up with these three classic albums, all on vinyl:

Black Sabbath - Paranoid

13th Floor Elevators - Easter Everywhere

g18252o8oly.jpg

On their groundbreaking debut album, the 13th Floor Elevators sometimes sounded as if they were still learning how to work with the strange beast of their own creation known as psychedelic rock. But their second set, 1967's Easter Everywhere, found them a great deal more comfortable and confident with their loose and hypnotically trippy approach. Easter Everywhere doesn't have an out-of-the-box classic cut like "You're Gonna Miss Me" or "Fire Engine" from The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators, but in many ways it's a more cohesive and consistent work, and the subtle but effective structures of the longer tracks grow and develop through repeated listenings, while rockers like "She Lives (In a Time of Her Own)" and "Levitation" pack a surprisingly visceral punch. Stacy Sutherland was never a blazing guitar hero, but his concise aural punctuations on the epochal "Slip Inside This House" and a superb cover of Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" are perfectly suited to the material. In addition, the rhythm section of Dan Galindo on bass and Danny Thomas on drums locks these songs into place with confidence and skill. The strange patterns of Tommy Hall's electric jug playing are as gloriously bewildering as ever, merging the music of the spheres with an alien attack, and Roky Erickson's vocals make even the most acid-damaged poesy sound passionate, graceful, and wildly alive. And Roky and the Elevators never sounded sweeter and saner than they did on the penultimate tune, "I Had to Tell You," with Roky seemingly offering a postscript to his many sad years to follow with the words "If you fear I'll lose my spirit/Like a drunkard's wasted wine/Don't you even think about it/I'm feeling fine." Even if less influential than The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators, Easter Everywhere is every bit as compelling and a true benchmark of early psychedelic rock — not bad for an album produced by Kenny Rogers' brother.

Electric Prunes - Underground

e257167ydv1.jpg

According to Electric Prunes members Jim Lowe and Mark Tulin, producer Dave Hassinger enjoyed enough success as a result of the group's early hit singles and their subsequent debut album that he was too busy to spend much time with them as they were recording the follow up, and that was arguably a good thing for the band. While Underground didn't feature any hit singles along the lines of "I Had to Much to Dream (Last Night)," it's a significantly more consistent work than the debut, and this time out the group was allowed to write five of the disc's twelve songs, allowing their musical voice to be heard with greater clarity. As on their first LP, the Electric Prunes' strongest asset was the guitar interplay of Jim Lowe, Ken Williams and James "Weasel" Spagnola, and while they became a bit more restrained in their use of fuzztone, wah-wah and tremolo effects, there's a unity in their attack on Underground that's impressive, and the waves of sound on "Antique Doll," "Big City" and " "Children of Rain" reveal a new level creative maturity (though they could make with a wicked, rattling fuzz on "Dr. Do-Good"). If Underground ultimately isn't as memorable as the Electric Prunes' first album, it's a matter of material — while the outside material that dominated the debut was sometimes ill-fitting, it also gave them some stone classic tunes like "I Had Too Much to Dream" and "Get Me to the World on Time," and the band themselves didn't have quite that level of songwriting chops, while the hired hands didn't deliver the same sort of material for Underground. Still, the album shows that the Electric Prunes had the talent to grow into something more mature and imaginative than their reputation suggested, and it's all the more unfortunate that the group's identity would be stripped from them for the next album released under their name, Mass in F Minor.

Hawkwind's 16th studio album, released in 1990. Re-released in remastered form with bonus tracks next week, but I get it early and at a cheaper price for being a member of the Atomhenge club. Which is nice! :D

This is an excellent fan-made video of the last track on the album, TV Suicide

I finally got around to getting this 2002 remaster that includes 6 songs that hadn't been available in stereo before.

I had the 1980's original issue, so it was time for an upgrade.
