I have to warn you, once seen, this can never be unseen without significant and drastic brain surgery.

 

Brilliant!

Life's a River from Mick Ronson's superb posthumously released Heaven and Hull album.

I was listening to that the other day, it's travisty that one of the bands that changed a generation of musicians, The Spiders From Mars are not celebrated and recognised enough in the city they hailed from.

I was listening only recently to the album Mick Ronson made with Ian Hunter. Bit of a mixed bag, but some good stuff. The album title (Y U I Orta) baffled me for a while, until I found out it was a tribute to the Three Stooges.

 

Here's the stand-out track (IMO).

Old Frightful is the resident forum expert on the Three Stooges. I'm sure he'd have picked up on that straightaway.

Someone just posted this on another forum. Very nice - I must check out their other songs.

Woke up this morning with this running through my head. Never heard it since they were on TotP when the single was released. It is amazing what random things pop out of the memory banks sometimes. If that sample is naggingly familiar, it is from the Gregory Peck Western 'The Big Country'.

This one's a bit more laid back. This live version adds a (recorded) choir, which really lifts the song to a new level.

Mix - Mountain - Beside The Sea (Live At Woodstock 69') 

Mountain were a fine band. I always liked Leslie 'The Great Fatsby' West's playing and vocals.

Wonderful player, and the contrast between his vocals and those of Felix Pappalardi gave an extra dimension to the band's sound.

 

This, from the 'Night of the Guitar' film and album, was the very first time I heard Leslie play. He was really on form for this liver version with Derek Holt on vocals. I went out and bought 'Nantucket Sleighride' the same week.

Nantucket Sleighride is a great album. It still gets a regular spin on my turntable. It's also one of my favourite pieces of album artwork. I love the drawing of the whale hunt.

+1. Love it! Wish I had a turntable to play it on :( , though I have ripped it to mp3 :D .

Futtocks is very knowledgeable about that sort of thing. He could probably point you in the direction of a very high quality vinyl rip.

On the subject of Leslie West, back in 2011 he lost a lot of weight and also had a leg amputated, due to complications arising from diabetes. He announced a new tour 2 months after what turned out to be a life-threatening operation.

 

As you can see, he's a much slimmer man these days.

Something a little(!) different to Leslie West tonight. Still very enjoyable.
