What Are You Listening To - The Reckoning


Recommended Posts

I'm watching the Rick Beato interview with Michael Omartian. About 5 minutes in, just as a casual mention, Omartian says his high school in Chicago had a 200-piece orchestra ?!?#?$?#?@ My high school had an acoustic guitar, an upright piano and 20 recorders.

Enjoy the groove and test your woofers, especially at about the 2 minute mark.

Listening to sounds of the 70s on Sunday found out that the song "Without You " wasn`t a Nillsson original but a cover of a Badfinger song written by Ham and Evans .Even more shocked to find out that due to the collapse of the Apple record label a long drawn out series of law suits over the royalties ensued . This became too much for both song writers and they both committed suicide albeit years apart . I will never listen to this song again with the same enjoyment i have previously held for it .

Irish broadcaster RTE just released a documentary about my favourite band of all time, the Hothouse Flowers. 

I can't explain how emotional I feel after watching it. To me they are a smashing band that I've been following live since 1990, but now I've just spent an hour with wild, uncontrollable goosebumps and it means even more. 

I think this story could extrapolate to a thousand bands who have stuck together over many years. It's a great story of friendship and loyalty and all sorts of positive things.

To quote one of their best songs, the documentary and the story are a real 'Thing of Beauty'.

Remember their Lovejoy episode? That's how big they were for a while.

Here's Liam with Eddi reader from Fairground Attraction.

I think I posted this on the wavering 'best cover versions' thread a while back. It's absolute perfection in terms of its spontaneity and harmony. Two great talents.

Dolly Parton sings Tom Petty and it's everything you could hope for.
