What Are You Listening To - The Reckoning

4,485 posts in this topic

 I don't really know much about Todd Rundgren's music apart from I Saw the Light, which is a classic track.

 

However, it's a fairly safe bet that most male music buffs of my generation would prefer to get into Kylie than Todd.

Just pre-ordered this - Todd Rundgren at the BBC - but am slightly disturbed by the "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought" section.  :O

I saw Todd Rundgren at Knebworth in 1976.

 

Can't remember a thing about it.

Got my hat trick on the Chain on Radcliffe & Maconie last Monday with this

 

 

Wonderful song, and when I showed my mate the video last year he went

 

"chuffing hell mate, that's your wife dressed as Margot Leadbetter"

Guitar hero time! Leslie West at 'Night of the Guitars', dedicating a Jack Bruce song to Felix Pappalardi, bassist and occasional vocalist for Mountain.

The wonderful Albert Lee in Saltaire last night.

 

Indescribably good.

Albert's a great technician but I've often thought his playing lacks soul! He's the country equivalent of all those terribly tedious Metal guitar players like Eddie Van Halen. I'd still stand watching open mouthed mind!

I saw him with Bill Wyman's band not so long ago. He was having a ball. It was a very good night.

I'm going to down Johnny Winter's new and last album in a bit

I had the same feeling about Carlos Santana in 1977ish.

Which is pretty much what I did for two hours last night.

 

Thing about Albert is that he is extremely versatile as well as technically brilliant. Over the years I've seen him with Clapton, the Everlys, Rhythm Kings and Hogan's Heroes, and he always looks supremely comfortable and to be having a great time. At 70 his powers seem undiminished, long may he continue.

I mentioned to some friends last night that Albert Lee was playing at Saltaire. They'd never heard of him. I said he used to play with  Emmylou Harris and they'd never heard of her either.

 

Mind you, it's only tonight that I've learnt that he played with Clapton.

Not even the oriental version?

Albert's always been a bit under the radar because he hasn't had a hugely successful solo career. Rolling Stone magazine even managed to omit him from their top 100 guitarists, probably because the idiots who write it also hadn't heard of him.

 

He's known as the guitarist's guitarist, revered by the host of more famous players he's performed and recorded with over the past fifty-odd years. What he was doing playing a tiny social club in Saltaire I have no idea, I guess he just loves gigging.

There are some altogether curious choices in that top 100. Pete Townsend at number 10? Lou Reed, really?

This is cool if you like the Decemberists kind of thing....

Edit - meant to say what a talent the lead vocalist/violinist is, that's got to be quite unusual.

She's better looking than Charlie Daniels, that's for sure...

Has anyone listened to the new U2 album which Apple gifted to everyone with an iTunes account (whether they wanted it or not) last week? Any thoughts?

 

I haven't had chance to listen yet. I'm not one of those who'll turn my nose up at it, as I have quite a few (actually, pretty much all now I come to think) of their previous albums which I've bought and paid for, but I find I tend to invest a bit more effort in stuff I've had to pay for than stuff I've been given free.

 

I'm at a loss to understand why so many people are moaning and groaning about getting something for nothing, when so many expect music to be free anyway these days.

Never could stand Mr B.Vox, Mr T.Edge and the two Mr Otherblokes, personally. I don't own any iGear, so I haven't had their dreary, self-important wibblings inflicted on me this time.

Didn't even know they'd dumped it on me until I read this, but the removal tool works a treat so no harm done.

I would like to be listening to a new album from Pete Wylie, but the Part Time Rockstar, Full Time Legend needs to raise the funds to record it first, so help this campaign over the line on Pledge Music if you can.

 

It's worth it just for the title alone. :)
