This version of the track is actually taken not from The Gilded Palace of Sin but from The Last of the Red Hot Burritos ... an album that has never been reproduced as a cd.   

 

[Boo!! Sulk]

I'll check it out. I've had my vinyl copy for 40 years and hardly ever play it any more.

...and some people also theorise that that riff was inspired by 'More than a Feeling' by Boston.


the band have all said in numerous interviews that it was Kurt trying to rip off the pixies....not sure if the sound city doc is a repeat of one i saw earlier this year with Dave grohl rescuing the neve desk....if it is then it was really good imo

'More than a Feeling' and Boston in general may not to be everyone's musical tastes, but it's a cracking riff. As far as copying the Pixies, I think that's more the quiet/loud/quiet pattern (think 'Monkey gone to Heaven', for instance) that the Pixies were known for, rather than the main riff itself.

 

Trivia: apparently Kurt's favourite cover version of 'Teen Spirit' was the Weird Al Yankovic version.

 

And yes, 'Sound City' has been on BBC4 before and does feature Grohl resuing the Neve console.

I've got it on an album, called 'wrote this song for you' I think. It's a very interestiing album

Thanks for that, I really like it.

 

Wouldn't the album be called 'Wrote A Song For Everyone' as in the song on Creedence's Green River album?

Been an annual event for about 12 years now, all the pubs in the town have acts on during the day on "the trail" then at night its down to the main stage for the headline acts. Good fun, plenty of beer and great music, what more could you want ? Over the last few years they've had headline acts such as Chuck Berry, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, John Mayall, Jools Holland, Gary Moore etc. The only downside is that it is in Maryport :tongue:

and of course, the riff-master:

 

 

have to agree with some of the comments though......no Black dog (wtf?) and it's well known that he was partial to ripping off blues legends of the past....though the evolution of music through the years inevitably involves a fair amount of plagiarism

Since nobody else has done it I thought I'd bump the thread in the light of Radio 2's recent poll.

 

Here's the top 100 according to their listeners, with about a thirty second snippet of each. The rule was only one riff allowed per artist.

 

Enjoy.

And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

Great night at the Black Swan in Bradford.

Scottish trio the Lewis Hamilton Band ... absolutely top notch blues plus a bit of Hendrix and finishing off with a bit of  Deep Purple.

 

Topped off with a pretty poor pint in the Dime Bar and a bottle of Budvar in the Beehive. Walked home, exchanged good evenings with a few other night owls on the way. Got in, had a coffee, watched Sexy Beasts on BBC Whatever and thought it was pretty good.

 

Bradford, you've got to love it.

Quite a walk from the Beehive to Clayton, (especially half cut?)

On that chart Whole Lotta Love is #1. I don't strongly disagree but for me what makes that record is the bass. That reminds me, there's a Small Faces record called 'You Need Loving' (or similar) and its basically WLL without the riff.....very strange!

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan

you need love by the small faces is a song written by Willie Dixon and originally recorded by Muddy waters. Ive got a copy somewhere.

Whole Lotta Love is a rip off of that

To be fair though, I don't think there is a musician -alive or dead- who hasn't ripped off other people.

I can't quit you baby......etc

And regardless of that Led Zep 1 is one of rock and rolls greatest lps.

the whole blues/rock genre has and does turn in on itself time and time again. Classic example-the bo diddley beat. 

It's a simple format, same with folk music.
