Album Deep Cuts and Recommended Listening

Posted on: February 20, 2008 4:46 pm
 

I am a big fan of classic rock, punk, grunge, alternative and even pop music from the 60s to the 1990s. 

Starting with Classic Rock, I used to live in Philly and loved when they had a "deep cuts" weekend on the old WYSP (1980s / 1990s).  This is where I heard a lot of great songs from well known artists that you did not hear regularly.  While on this message board, some people have turned me on to a lot of songs and albums I had forgotten about (Pink Floyd - Obscured by Clouds). Unfortunately, many of those threads have been archived. 

I will be posting songs / albums from bands that I like and encourage people to do the same.

Well, here's my yearly posting on this thread. I can't seem to get Dylan and The Dead out of my CD player. Recorded live in 1987, Bob wails while the well oiled machine backs him up like a run away train. Speaking of trains, the first track "Slow train comin'" is my personal favorite track on the disc. There is a great version of "Watchtower" also. If you haven't listened to this in quite awhile, blow the dust off of it and play it loud and you will really understand just how bad music blows nowadays.

Sorry about the above post about the BCS (Bullshit College System) in the "Deep Cut" thread. It was early and there was no coffee yet. Back to the music- I just took a trip to Newbury Comics and picked up a few discs. I'm slowly replacing all of my cassettes (they're plastic with 2 tape reels in them- about the same size as a playing card- for those of you who may have forgotten) with discs. Seeing I had over 500 cassettes, I probably won't be able to replace them all in my lifetime. With the exception of Godsmack, I have not purchased any music with a date of 1989 or newer on it.........ok,ok.......1990- I bought Alice in Chains. I grew up on The Who, Led Zeppelin, RUSH, The Stones, Steely Dan, Dylan and OLD Bruce Springsteen with the E Street Band. I went looking for Marshall Tucker at Best Buy a few months back and they didn't have it. Instead, this creature came up to me with 8 piercings in his face and said: "Yo, can I interest you in "Bullet for my Valentine" or "Fallout Boy?"  "Go F yourself" I said. I can only imagine how the real old- timers feel.

As soon as all those old gray-haired, cigar puffing, viagra-eating, weasels start dying off, then there will be a playoff system in College football. Texas Tech's coach suggested a 64 team "tournament"- just like hoops. GO BALL STATE !!!!!!

I am listening to the Album "Who's Next" right now.  The two songs "The Song is Over" and "Getting in Tune" are great songs.  My Wife is also a really good song.  If your only experience with The Who is from the hundreds of greatest hits / compilation albums, you are missing some of their best work.
