A Music Thread: Rock Opera And Boom Boom!


heelcrocs.jpg

[Garrett's formal Crocs]

The internet, social media, amazing access to pretty much the sum total of human achievement and incredible digital storage has made switching to another genre or album or song effortless.

And thoughtless too, which I think is too bad. I find myself switching stations or tracks or streams after just a few seconds when I don't like the first notes of whatever is playing. That is okay if I recognize the music and I know it, but what about new stuff that isn't immediately appealing? Am I missing out on incredible music just because I have the attention span of a gnat?

Yes, I went through a "Guided by Voices" phase. Why do you ask?

***

Luckily I didn't skip this...

She looks like a hoot!

***

Speaking of something I had never heard...this grabbed me immediately! You'll see why! Elmore James: Shake Your Moneymaker
***

The Who's "Tommy" was the first album I heard that made sense to me as something besides a random collection of songs. The movie wasn't bad either, especially going into the city to see it without adult supervision!
The Who: 1921
***

This is famous...and for a good reason: it's great. John Lee Hooker: Boom Boom
***

Murray Perahia plays Beethoven Piano concerto No 5, called "The Emperor" for sort of mysterious reasons. Old Ludwig was no fan of Napoleon, so he certainly didn't call it that. But whatever it's called, it is an absolutely magnificent work, especially when done by one of the greatest pianists in history!

37 Ooh! Excellent topic. I was taken to Jesus Christ, Superstar mumblemumble years ago, as a very young fan of live musicals. Now, I could write essays on my theological disagreements with this work (haven’t, but others have done so.) That said, I believe my Christianity does have some foundation in even this early rock-opera exposure.

46 Off topic, but some dreams I have intergalactic travel, and can move around far past the Earth. I love those dreams, they are quite unique, but also have their own geography, so when I do have them I always know where I am, in that peculiar Dream Geography.
Space stations, galaxies.
I mentioned it to The Kid today and she was quite shocked, had no idea I'd had these kinds of dreams since I was a little kid.
In those dreams the Star Systems are very amazing and quite beautiful. Sometimes there are 'Stations' but they are just points, there are no super-Asimov Real Science, after all, it's My dream.
I don't ask for them, would never, but when they happen they are always super fun and I'm always loathe to wake up, and return from The Stars.
Usually The Cat wakes me up, "Get your head out of the clouds and feed me, God Damn it!"

Start of the List song.

And who never would be missed — who never would be missed!

78 I'm a little bit of an opera nerd. JJ even accused me of being a Frasier Crane (with a smiley emoji). There's a production of Le Nozzi di Figaro by Britain's Garsington Opera Company. It comes and goes on YouTube, depending on the opera season. The whole cast is great, superb acting in addition to singing. Jennifer France is the cutest Susanna ever. Give it a look if you can.

84 "Tommy" holds a uniquely pivotal role in rock history. I think it's fair to say that The Who of the 60's was good, but didn't stand out much from any of the other English groups that were making a name for themselves at the time, such as the Yardbirds, the Animals, the Kinks, and many others. All good groups, of course Then they took a year off to write a Rock Opera, and "Tommy" came out - unlike anything that had been done by anyone else. Groundbreaking.

and that wasn't the end of it - it wasn't clear where they would go after that, until they came out with the seminal album "Who's Next" and I guarantee everyone reading is likely familiar with every song on that album, whether you know that's the source or not. It wasn't just a great album - coming when it did, it marked the change from the folk/pop rock roots of the 60's and with it's style set the tone for the Stadium Rock of the 70's, which every major group jumped on. And it started wtih Tommy.

90 @24 JT -A humbucker is a type of guitar pickup typically seen on a Gibson Les Paul, SG that has two coils in which one cancels out noise/hum hence "humbucker" from electric, radio static noise near the guitar. Pickups "pickup" the vibration of the string. Single coil pickups are common to the Fender Stratocaster, Telecaster. Single coils tend to be noisy and pick up static though technology has advanced and helped eliminate or reduce it for single coil pups.

By the time I post this someone probably explained it.

S.F. Sorrow is the fourth album by the English rock band Pretty Things. Released in 1968, it is known as one of the first rock operas ever released.

102 The thing about network cables is that they send the signal on one wire and the mirror image signal on a second wire. If some interference occurs then the machine on the other end is able to figure everything out.

A typical guitar pickup is just a single coil. A humbucker is two coils wound in opposite directions.

Sadly in Max Max times, guitars will be scavenged for the copper wire, rather than given a magnificent flamethrower mod.

103 Beethoven's 3rd, known as the Eroica, was originally dedicated to Napoleon, and I think Ludwig V ripped up the title page when he got notice of Napoleon declaring himself Emperor.
Beethoven was a liberal, and very much in favor of "republican" intentions of the French republic

106 The thing about Rocky Horror was that regardless of what anyone thought about the content, the music itself was good and singable, unlike anything that's been made in the last 20 years or so. (I would take Rocky Horror's musical score over that hip hop Hamilton crap any day)

And it has fun with lots of styles - for example "Hot Patootie Bless my Soul" done by Meatloaf is a hilarious, and excellent take on the 50's be bop style.

118 I was one of the few people who got kicked out of a Rocky Horror show for doing something too extreme. (a window into how nuts I was as a youth) Background: I had seen James Bond kill a snake by turning an aerosol can into an impromptu flamethrower, so I experimented a lot. Turned out most things don't work, some things likes spray paint are just too dangerous, but Lysal of the day amazingly was perfect, and would make a beautiful torch.

So I'd been a couple times with friends, and decided it was time to impress everyone. I knew that everyone was pulling out their lighters when they sang "There's a light..." so I sat in the very front row, where everyone could see me, and when "there's a Light..." came on I pulled my lysol can out from under my coat and made a 3' tall burning torch over my head. Most everyone gasped, some screamed, staff was not amused. I was quickly and ignominiously thrown out of the theater and told never to return.

I kinda think so. Woodie Guthrie, then then "sex, drugs, rock and roll" era ... this was mostly anti-Christian, even communist, even as the vast majority of America (85%?) declared they were Christian.

idk the extent of infiltration by the commies, in their march through all institutions, but it seems logical enough that they would control Hollywood and Music as upstream of culture. So we still sing along the way on the path to where we are now.

Maybe Country western is a little cleaner? idk ... those Dixie Chicks were kinda disappointing. But still good stuff out there ... somewhere. But rock and roll influenced all of us, we the 29ers. Party On Garth.

There is apparently a style of country music now called "bro country" which sounds like rap with a little twang to it. been around for a few years now, and like any other rap, it sucks mightily. The "classic" country we all know and love still exists in the "alt country" genre, which gets little airplay on so-called "country" stations. But OTA radio itself sucks mightily, too.

Bernie's virtuosity, and the fact that I believe the band dropped using a banjo after he left, creating a hole in the fabric of their musical roots. Listen to Take it Easy with Bernie's Banjo, and then listen to a later version without it...very sterile.

Randy's vocals are unmatched...fuckin' Timothy B Schmidt...carpet bagger. He followed Randy from Poco to the Eagles, and I have a bit of a hard on for him.

Anyway those two guys, while not the headliners that Henley and Frey were, constituted what to me was the sound of The Eagles...and thus the heart.

197 [Garrett's formal Crocs]

Really interesting. How did CBD get a picture of Garrett's formal dress shoes, living thousands of miles away from Montana? IDK, but it's obviously true.

And it also explains why Garrett has ghosted the PNW MoMe for three years and running. Others come from as far away places in Western Oregon or Idaho to the beautiful Yakima area meeting spot, even the majority of us driving from the Puget Sound area for 2 hours or more to make it more centralized and an interesting drive for others. While Garrett has always been invited, he's nowhere to be seen on the annual June weekend day.

Hopefully this shaming of Garrett by one of the PNW meeting originators, combined with the authentic picture of his formal shoe wear, will get him to show his face at the next PNW MoMe.

After all, I'm making the pilgrimage to Corsicana again this year. More than just a drive from Western Montana to Eastern Washington, it's a fucking plane ride. And BTW looking forward to it even more than last year. Can't wait.

Those formal Crocs. Geezuz CBD, you have to tell me how you got that pic of Garrett's formal wear. Do you have a pic of the bra and panties, too?

228 From the lazy search results of Wikipedia

"Since the O'Sullivan lawsuit, samples on commercial recordings have typically been taken either from obscure recordings or cleared, an often expensive option only available to successful acts.[49] According to the Guardian, "Sampling became risky business and a rich man's game... "For a bedroom producer, clearing a sample can be nearly impossible, both financially and in terms of administration."

The odd part is that it seems to be Russian Roulette, with a chance that it's perfectly fine (de minimis and I guess some magical hand waving, but I'm no lawyer and don't even pretend to be one online) or the judge will throw the entire record industry book at you.

242 I had lots of audio books, XM/Sirius and local radio. I found that I turned off the radio, except for playing a little classical. I seem to prefer driving without the noise.

My drive is about 24 hours...but marginally more civilized than the flight!

Gonna need a few day to do though. Gone are the days of going 21 hours strait through.

Wimp! Just fooling. Me and the Mrs. make it in two very long drive days.

She loves the Horde without fully understanding it. Well hell, do any of us fully understand?

247 The civilized part or the 24 hour part?

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at October 01, 2022 09:50 PM (XIJ/X)

Probably both.

I've gotten in the habit of wearing earbuds at the gym. Sometimes I forget that people can hear me.

Today somebody told me that they can...

253 118 I was one of the few people who got kicked out of a Rocky Horror show for doing something too extreme. (a window into how nuts I was as a youth) Background: I had seen James Bond kill a snake by turning an aerosol can into an impromptu flamethrower, so I experimented a lot. Turned out most things don't work, some things likes spray paint are just too dangerous, but Lysal of the day amazingly was perfect, and would make a beautiful torch.

Knees and hips, dictate a lot of rest stops to stretch and walk. Add to that, that I don't want to drive in the dark. Also, my constitution being what it is, precludes a quick getaway in the AM.

So I'm driving 7-8 hours a day at max...

I drove from Calgary to Portland, non-stop, in about 18 hours one year, with a non-driving friend riding shotgun. And I had just gotten back from a well in the Peace River country. I don't know how I did it.

Wow, I remember him. That's fantastic.

I saw Doc Watson for about $12-$15 or so in the early 2000s. Doc ****ing Watson. And the Pixies want $100?

262 I used to drive a lot from the Berkshires to Dallas, like 4-5 times a year

E 350 with 7.3, pulling a 20 ft wells cargo enclosed trailer

would leave at 4 am so not to catch NYC traffic

usually drive to Knoxville and then get up and make it into Dallas, easy, no problem

once I took an employee but he drove me nuts. and he got us pulled over in TN

263 Heard an interview with a legendary conductor a generation ago -- could have been Solti. Asked about rap, he did not get panicky. Said it should be judged by different criteria, since although there were elements of rhythm and some talent involved, after all "it is an entertainment for children who are not musical."

I have been reminded of his means of definition by several recent genres.
