Author Comments: 

beyond telling you to what CDs I'm listening at work, this list also shows you whenever my no-taste ear-sensitive colleague is away from the office :)

I don't know anything about this live Jefferson Airplane collection you mentioned for April 21. Does it cherry-pick songs from many different shows, or does it contain longer performances?

Johnny Waco

That CD was released on the Prism Leisure label in England and available in the mid 90's on continental europe. Here's what a Jefferson Airplane fan says about it on Internet: "It's a combination of excerpts from Monterey Pop, Bless Its Pointed Little Head, Surrealistic Pillow, and Takes Off. Only the last cut has not been released on a mainstream recording. A more accurate subtitle might be "Mostly Live and Previously Released '66-'68"."
Anyway, I bought that collection because it was cheap and the sound is very nice for 60's live recordings.

Sounds interesting--the Airplane was a good live band, if Bless Its Pointed Little Head is any indication.

Johnny Waco

Call in sick last Friday? Or did you go musicless?

Josie and those Pussycats again! They are an addiction, aren't they? I like Tom Petty quite a bit, but I've never heard the live album.

Johnny Waco

Ah ah, yes I didn't come to work last friday... My colleagues all are addicted to Josie as well, I actually brought it back yesterday because they asked for it...
Now, regarding that TP&HB live album... It is a bit of a let down... they are a great live band (the greatest in my opinion but it doesn't count for I am a fan) but this album doesn't pay justice to that... mostly recorded during the '85 tour backing the Southern Accents album, it's also intertwined with various earlier recordings (two duets with Stevie Nicks from '81, three songs from early tours in '77 or '78 and one song from their european tour in '80)... It's incredible to think that this 20-year old album remains their only official live album... last but not least, the CD release contains two songs LESS than the double-vinyl... Tom Petty hinted in an interview last autumn that 2005 could very likely see the release of a new live album... the fact that they've just embarked on a new US summer tour could be a good sign... anyway my fingers are crossed...

I didn't realize they only had one live album; that surprises me as well. They have been on the same U.S. label from the beginning, I think, which could have something to do with it. Seems like some groups release live or rarities albums when their contracts are running out in order to fulfill them and move on.

Johnny Waco

Hmmm, actually TP&HB have been on three labels so far... they first were on ABC Records, whose selling to MCA lead to a big trial in 1979 pitting Petty as an artist against MCA as a money-making industry... Then they left MCA for WarnerBros. in 1994... I suspect they released so few live albums as a way to entice people to go and see them live in concert... and I can't argue with that...
It could be noted however that four concerts have been officially released so far in VHS/DVD: Pack Up The Plantation '85, Take The Highway '91, High Grass Dogs '99, Live at The Olympic '02.

Oh, OK, that would explain the Greatest Hits album; it was put out when he left MCA. And releasing four VHS/DVDs, but only one live album is interesting. If I recall, you said you didn't like U2, but it seems like they have done pretty much the same thing; they release a live VHS/DVD after some of their tours, but not many live albums.

Johnny Waco

Hmmm, I'm not sure if parallels should be drawn between Tom Petty and U2 but I get your point... it's a bit funny... and yes the Greatest Hits (and the two-cd Anthology three years later) were released when the band left MCA Records...

Ha! Pocket Full of Kryptonite! I haven't even thought about that album in years. :)

I do like "Two Princes" and "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong," even though they were sooo overplayed over here when they came out.

Johnny Waco

well I only bought the album very recently for a very cheap price (2€ that would be around 2,5 or 3$, I think) at a closing music shop saledown... I never completely was a fan and I certainly got quickly tired of Two Princes at the time because it was way too much shoved down our throats by radio stations and MTV... yet, a few songs are really great and the filler material is not weak...

For Your Pleasure is defintiely my favorite Roxy Music album. The first five or six songs are as great a run to start an album as any I've ever heard.

Johnny Waco

I can't really say I prefer one or the other... to me, the debut album and For Your Pleasure are to be considered as a whole and they more than probably are the best two first albums for any band I know (if I put aside my fan reaction and disregard Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' two first albums, that is)... I'd say Velvet Underground&Nico and White Light/White Heat are very close in this "first two albums" thingy... any opinions, dear JW ?

I'm not JW, and you ain't asking me, but as far as terrific duos of debut albums, I by law must mention The Band and Elvis Costello...

Shalom, y'all!

L. Bangs

Music from Big Pink and The Band are very high on my to-buy-urgently list... as for Costello, I won't say because I don't like the guy so much, any of his periods, but I am aware he deserves a sizeable mention in any music refence book...

Roxy Music certainly did come out of the gate with guns blazing, as did VU, Costello, and The Band. Some would say Jimi Hendrix, although I'm not quite the fan some are. Two opening duos I love would be Santana's Santana and Abraxas, and Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures and Closer.

Johnny Waco

Of course, Joy Division... but at the same time that's their only two albums released when Ian was alive, isn't it ?

Ooh, Kind of Blue! There wasn't a whole lot of jazz from that era that particularly struck my fancy (I prefer I more classic style), I loved that album. My studies in Jazz History at university taught me the importance of that style of jazz, but it took Miles Davis to make me like it.

Well, I haven't studied Jazz at the University (I did follow a course on 20th century folk music, though) and I have only recently began listening to jazz...so coming from Rock and Folk music, Kind of Blue seemed like a logical doorstep into further exploring jazz...

Well, if you like Kind of Blue, you might want to check out Miles Davis' Bitches Brew as well, which was extremely important in jazz history. It's also my other favourite of his, though admittedly I haven't listened to a lot of jazz from this era. (As I said before, not really my cuppa tea - not very accessible, even to someone who did 6 years of university-level theory and history).

And if you come from Rock and Folk, perhaps you should check out someone like Billie Holiday. Situated a little closer in time to the roots of jazz, she's a fine example of a more classic style (classic being a term used in hindsight), to terrific artistic effect. "Strange Fruit" is one of her most important pieces, singing about the titular fruit hanging from a tree. It is, of course, about the lynching of black people in the south of America, and Billie's voice is fragile and heartbreaking.

Interesting choice to use as a doorstep. Folk music covers a pretty broad scope of styles. I think I'll have a closer look at your list here and see where you're coming from.

You may want to check other lists of mine then as well... this one might interest you... and this one too, I guess... thanks for your comments and suggestions... I've heard about Billie Holiday of course but haven't taken time yet to explore her recordings.

I figured you would have, but I thought you might like her.

Interesting lists. I like your rock list, though I haven't heard of quite a few of your entries on it. I like that you've included the likes of Simon & Garfunkel, Johnny Cash and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Quite a range of heavily rooted rock and harder stuff. Also, your folk list contains some towering folk figures. Judging from the kind of thing you seem to enjoy, I'd say Holiday will likely sit well with you.

And I don't mean to bore you, but I feel like thinking with my fingers for a minute here about jazz:

1) Billie Holiday is an artist whose roots are in the blues side of jazz. However, her style and musicality move on from that. Her style is very spare, with few large embellishments - she's very intimate.

2) Ella Fitzgerald (the Queen, in my opinion) has a much more flashy, vibrant style. She has utter control over her instrument (her voice), and dazzles with vocal ability. Much less intimate than Holiday, but still in the same classic jazz vein. She may take a little more getting used to than Holiday (but I only say may, because she may delight at first hearing, as she did for me). She uses scat singing sometimes, which can be jarring to those who think they don't like jazz (though I'm obviously not referring to you there).

3) Miles Davis, John Coltrane, et al. - Perhaps it's my musical training that makes me try to listen to all the things happening in a piece of music. I find this kind of thing a bit too cerebral and far removed from the musical techniques I can identify and follow. Perhaps if I wasn't listening so hard, I might enjoy it more. Certainly my boyfriend, who doesn't know any music theory at all, finds it great to listen to. I find it strains my musical brain. Ack! I'm not being anti-intellectual here, really! I love thinking, just not at the expense of the visceral enjoyment of music.

Sorry, feel free to ignore me. Just some unfocussed rambling. It's been a long day.

Of course I won't ignore those very documented comments... it's obvious you know about Jazz and music in general... and though I have no musical training and therefore don't encounter the problems you do while listening to music... but I can relate as that "too smart for one's good" attitude has spoiled many a pro-wrestling match for me recently... not to imply that I have any kind of pro-wrestling physical training but after writing a one-hundred-page essay on the social and symbolical implications of pro-wrestling in american society in my final year of university, I realize I can't enjoy "sports entertainment" the same way I did before when I had a much more innocent approach to the subject... and regarding folk music, Pete Seeger is 86, alive and well... Greed and Hatred haven't completely won the war yet... Anyway, back to your comments, you have definitely given me the itch to get my hands on some Billie Holiday record very soon... it's got nothing to do with jazz, but it's got all to do with vocal control and using voice as the ultimate musical instrument, have you heard Om Kalthoum already ?

No, I've not heard any Om Kalthoum. I'll make a note to keep in my wallet to have a look the next time I'm at the CD store, though. I love folk and its plaintive way of making a statement, as much through lyrics as through music. Being also a literature freak, that appeals to me. Think I'll track down some Pete Seeger while I'm at it.

Definitely get your hands on some Billie Holiday. Her style is deceptively simple, and she's just a joy to listen to.

I know what you mean about extensive study ruining some simple joys. While I think my enjoyment of good music in vastly enhanced, my studies have forever ruined me for the Kylie Minogues and Fifty Cents of the world. Sorry to hear about your tainted love of pro-wrestling. Although, on the opposite side, my studies in the social commentary in slasher/horror films has made me enjoy watching them even more. I probably got more out of watching "Toolbox Murders" the other week than my boyfriend did, who was only enjoying the blood, gore and half-naked ladies.

Well, I still enjoy pro-wrestling it's just that I definitely don't enjoy it the same way as before... As for Om Kalthoum, she was the greatest singer in the history of arabic traditional music... so, it's probably not the kind of music you are used to and she sang in arabic as well but she did so many incredible things with her voice... I guess she's always worth a try... you might like her or not but I don't believe she left anyone indifferent... as for Pete Seeger, I would recommend his early and mid 60's albums released on Columbia records... titles you might look for would be "The Bitter & The Sweet", "We Shall Overcome-The Carnegie Hall Concert", "God Bless the Grass", "Dangerous Songs?!" or "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy"... his earlier recordings have also been rereleased on CD by Smithsonian Folkways... Feel free to point worthy CD rereleases of Billie Holiday works...

Thanks for the recommendations of Pete Seeger albums. I was online yesterday looking to see if there was a reasonably priced CD of his on Play.com. Unfortunately, they only had 2 CD's of his, and I wasn't sure what would be good. I'll have a lookout for your recommendations, though.

I also tried to listen to some Om Kalthoum yesterday on my bried stint in front of a computer with sound. Unfortunately, the page wouldn't load - I'll give it another try today. I've done some studies in Ethnomusicology that exposed me to all manner of folk singing. I remember hearing a North Indian singer who astounded me with the beauty of her voice. I tried frantically to search through my uni notes to find her name, but it seems to have been lost in the shuffle. I'm very interested to hear Ms. Kalthoum on your recommendation.

As for Billie Holiday, I don't know particular albums as most of what I've heard is on compilations or through university, so I'd say just dive in. "Best of" albums are usually a good place to get a feel for someone's work.

I heartily agree with what you (and cramoukji) have said. And it makes me happy to read it.
Just a friendly warning: As soon as I can collect my thoughts I have something to contribute about Miles Davis... and maybe Pete Seeger.
But I must say this about Billie Holiday and "Best of..." albums... Watch Out! There is usually too much stuff from the mid 50s on, once her voice had gone, and not enough stuff from her early career.

For the Billie Holiday completist her later albums are certainly worth it for the heartbreaking tragedy. "Lady in Satin" would bring you to tears. Her voice has deserted her, she desperately needs the money, she (and Norman Granz, bless his heart) surrounded herself with musicians who were life-long friends... and she's a tragic shadow of her former self. There's an even better picture that Milt Hinton took of her during the recording session. She's listening to a playback and you can see the tears beginning to come as she listens to the toll that life has taken on her voice.

Her early stuff is absolutely fantastic. It is stunning to think that there are no recordings of her when she was the vocalist for the Basie Band and precious few of her with Benny Goodman or Artie Shaw. Strange Fruit (to my taste) is a tough listen no matter how important or moving it is. Louis Armstrong was (supposedly) the first instrumentalist to "scat" sing wordlessly like a horn. Billie Holiday never scatted. Her brilliance is that she was the first vocalist to be an instrumentalist.

In most of her recordings her vocals alternate with instrumental solos and, if you ignore the words and listen to just the notes and phrasing, she is just as great a musician as anyone in the band. There's a nice (low quality) page of Billie Holiday songs to sample here. The stuff with the Ray Ellis Orchestra is all from "Lady in Satin" and if you listen to her early Getting Some Fun Out Of Life and then You've Changed you'll get some idea of what was lost.

Cracking open my indespensable The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD "The Quintessential Billie Holiday Vol. 3 1936-37" and "The Quintessential Billie Holiday Vol. 4 1937" both get "****" (although none of her early stuff gets below a "***".) I'd personally go for Vol. 4 as it has a combination of musicians from the Basie and Ellington Bands. But any reasonable collection of her 1930s recordings should be a revelation and more than excellent.

I find it sad that what was pop music between the two Wars is now presented as an intellectual exercise. (Rant being suppressed...) Those musicians were geniuses of the highest order (and America will never produce artists the like of Duke Ellington or Louis Armstrong again.) But Jazz got its name because it was sex music and it should be listened to as such.

I didn't realize Billie Holiday's compilation albums went so heavy on her later works. It is absolutely tragic how her life played out. Her voice had always been fragile, and to hear it beyond the breaking point was just a poignant reminder of how great she was. I think, regarding "Strange Fruit", that you're probably right about it not being the most accessible work by her. However, no discussion about Holiday's importance would be complete without a mention of it.

I never said Billie Holiday did scat singing - only that Ella Fitzgerald did. Louis Armstrong is wonderful at scat (though Ella's impression of Louis doing scat is still funnier). It's too bad most people only know him for his singing now, since his trumpet work outshone his vocal work in terms of musical skill - and that's saying something.

It does floor me that what people used to accept as popular music was of such high quality. I'm usually the last person to look at the past through rose-coloured glasses, but you can't tell me Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Benny Goodman et al are even in the same league as Kylie-freakin'-Minogue.

Thanks for jumping in with the Holiday recommendations, by the way. My musical experience, while sometimes well-informed, is very eclectic and scattered. I rarely know whole albums by anyone, let alone enough of them to know which ones I should be suggesting.

I certainly didn’t mean to imply that you said that Billie Holiday was a scat singer. What I meant to emphasize was (my opinion) that Billie Holiday was the first and perhaps greatest jazz musician who sang as their instrument. Louis Armstrong’s instrument was the trumpet; he “played” trumpet. Lester Young’s instrument was the tenor saxophone; he “played” saxophone (…and so on.) Those musicians had to communicate emotionally by playing their instruments.

Jazz singers usually communicate using words (sung in a jazz style) or wordlessly by imitating a horn player. Billie Holiday didn’t do that. Singing was her horn. (When at her best) she didn’t try to communicate by using words, she played the words. In some way this is harder than just playing an instrument. If you told a sax player to stick closely to the melody while soloing she shouldn’t find that too difficult (unless she’s John Coltrane, that is.) But if you told her to recite words (some call them “lyrics”) while soloing, then her job becomes enormously difficult.

Billie Holiday’s genius is that she never allowed the words to get in the way of her playing. Tenor saxophonist Ben Webster was famous for knowing the full lyrics (not just the chorus) of the songs he played. It helped him to put more emotion into his solos. Billie Holiday did the same thing only she actually had to say the words themselves while she played. You’re absolutely right about Louis Armstrong being remembered for his vocals and I think that it is an aspect of the same problem that listening to Billie Holiday presents. I’m not articulating this as well as I’d like... but the way that Billie approached a song was different than Ella or Louis.

And then overenthusiastic jazz fans will make you listen to something until you “truly get it” and by then they’ve sucked the fun out of everything. If you have any doubt about this then you must listen to these brilliant chromatic arpeggio runs by Charlie Parker. Just to prove my point: Ella could imitate just about anyone. She used to do, as you say, a wonderful scat impersonation of Louis Armstrong when she sang Mack the Knife . That may have begun out of hilarious necessity while on tour in Berlin. She truly is a queenly First Lady of Song.

That Live in Berlin version of Mack the Knife is exactly the instance I had in mind, actually. Bloody brilliant. Forgets the words, and still manages to create a version that is not only wildly popular, but still a classic after all these years. "What a wreck of Mack the Knife", my eye.

Dutronc? All I say is "Paris s'éveille".

...Je n'ai pas sommeil

Say, does it snow in Belgium? I mean now?

Yes, it's been snowing sporadically for the past week but we don't have the crazy amounts of snow you guys are experiencing in GDL... I guess you are confined to your house just like an influenza chicken :p ... hey, at least you got the www to keep you amused!

I have a friend who swears by The Cramps, although I've yet to give in and listen...
