    Started the evening with Osees Protean Threat. My wife bought a few albums this week, so have listened to Cream Disraeli Gears and currently listening to PJ Harvey Dry - Demos, which is ace so far.

    Inspired by Rick Beato's 100th episode.. Frampton Comes Alive! I have a new appreciation for everyone other than Peter.. I was previously so mesmerised by his playing I didn't notice how good the bass, drums and keys were.

    Maribou State - Portraits
    Kelis - Kaleidoscope
    Angie Stone - Mahogany Soul

    I can't help about the shape I'm in, I can't sing I ain't pretty and my legs are thin

    But don't ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to

    I'm still quite new to The Police, but I've been floored by this album lately - so many different influences. Rock, pop, jazz,reggae...it's all here

    @deadman I've been checking out the other albums as well and they're all great but Ghost in The Machine is next level...I didn't think anything could top Zenyata.

    I changed lanes at that point, @Springywheel and became a punky/mod type unfortunately. I just preferred the fashion, shallow as hell :lol: 

    I Still LOVE The Police though. I'll listen to them all day and be very happy.

    Chilling out this morning with Riverside's most recent album Wasteland. Such a great modern prog band, elements of Floyd, Marillion etc. but definitely with their own sound, and a harder edge than those previously mentioned.

    I am currently listening to Disintegration by The Cure for the first time on a new DAC that is fairly transparent. This is the closest I have ever been inside the recording (remastered version). I always knew Robert Smith was a quirky shapeshifting songwriter, but I feel Disintegration is on another level as a complete body of work.

    The transition through the tracks is flawless, and while clearly Goth influenced, it is not so easy to put a date on the production, as it sounds timeless to me and seems to get better with age.

    In short, this is Smith's Magnum Opus, and well worth another spin on the decks if you have it in your music collection.
    If we are not ashamed to think it, we should not be ashamed to say it.

    Sheik Yerbouti ( again )

    What do you think of it, @Logie ? I bow to few people in my love for FZ - in the late 70s & early 80s I listened to almost no one except Zappa and Talking Heads. I bought each new Zappa release as it came out.  But I find it harder and harder to listen to his later albums. After Apostrophe, the only masterpiece for me is Joe's Garage. Of course there are flashes of brilliance in the other output (how could there not be, given the man?), but overall there's this weird effect for me whereby the more exceptional Zappa's touring band becomes, the more uninteresting (from the perspective of longevity) the music becomes. Zappa gives way more and more either to his 'teenage New York" pleasing songs that play heavily on misogyny or his irritation with with right-wing religious figures. I still listen to The Grand Wazoo and find new things in it every time I do, whereas albums like Sheik Yerbouti, Tinseltown Rebellion, You Are What You Is, etc. just leave me cold now.

    (For me the best thing to come out of the Sheik Yerbouti era are the YouTube videos of Adrian Belew singing lead vocals on "City of Tiny Lites" and generally being awesome)

    @Moominpapa ;
    I listened to him quite a lot in the 70’s and 80’s but I’m not a massive fan really ( although he’s always fascinated me ). An instrumental album like Sleep Dirt for example doesn’t really do it for me
    I like the humorous side which is why I love Sheik Yerbouti and Live in New York so much but they’re enough for me to get my Zappa fix.
    Looking forward to watching the movie.

    This and the other two live studio jams albums can be downloaded for free below but in these times I’m sure any contributions would help the band.

    Frazey Ford - Indian Ocean.  Country soul from a one time folk singer (ex Be Good Tanyas) who doesn't have the most powerful voice but it has a wonderful delicate, creamy texture and her phrasing is so idiosyncratic and soulful. She has some of Al Green's old band on this and she can write a melody.  If you like Al Green on his slower stuff worth checking this out.  Her follow up album (U Kin B The Sun) has somewhat more modern textures but is still superb.  Most of the songs are a few very simple chords and the arrangements are sparse. A reminder of how effective simple music can be when it's done with feeling and taste.

    Lana Del Ray - Chemtrails Over the Country Club.  Loved her last album.  Early days but this one isn't as immediate.  There are some strong song sbut my impression is of quit a noticeable mid-album sag.

    Nick Cave - Carnage.  One listen so too early to respond.

    Paul Desmond - Desmond Blue. Features Jim Hall on guitar. Exquisite stuff.

    Melody Gardot - Sunset in the Blue. Stunningly produced and arranged. Not for everyone - you have to like music where jazzy American Songbook meets Latin and sophisticated orchestral MOR  but it totally works for me. Some very nice guitar playing on this as well.

    Been listening to a lot of NOVA on YouTube. They cover classic bossa nova and samba tunes (Corcovado, Black Orpheus, Summer Samba, Desafinado, etc.)  They are very good and blessed with a superb vocalist in Laura Vall. If you like the classic Latin American music of the 50s & 60s , give them a listen, you won't be disappointed.

    This band covering the whole of VH1.
    The guitarist, Simon Hosford, nails those EVH parts and sounds (all from a Kemper and feeding the power amp section of the Marshall amp shown on stage). He has some pedigree and has played with Men at Work, been in Tommy Emmanuel's Band and done a fair bit in Australia.

    I'm still amazed at the inventiveness of EVH and in particular, will always love his rhythm work - he was one of the best at that! It's hard believed this material was from 1978 and before.
