  1. I like it. Although I have to admit I've never heard of him, except for Anna. The Beatles had good taste when covering music.
  2. Odessey and Oracle is one of my favorite albums, nice post! The Zombies are awesome, are they seriously not in the R&R Hall? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVLEjU4Fxts
  3. Billy Nicholls featuring The Small Faces, twin spin: Girl from New York It Brings Me Down both songs are from the excellent, and sadly underrated 1968 album 'Would You Believe'
  4. R.I.P. Reg Presley Troggs- Love Is All Around Me
  5. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtUjjLcYwoU
  6. Jim Morrison was a true poet. He has said on many occasions that the only thing he wanted to be remembered by was his words. Have you ever read his poetry book "Lords and New Creatures"? Full of astounding imagery. In the book he wrote alot about what movies and the art of cinema meant to him: "Cinema derives not from painting, literature, sculpture, theatre, but from ancient popular wizardry. It is the contemporary manifestation of an evolving history of shadows, a delight in pictures that move, a belief in magic. Its lineage is entwined from the earliest beginning with Priests and
  7. I really like Exile on Main Street as well. All The Doors albums were great, their first record blew me away! except I never really cared for Soft Parade..
  8. Exactly! Thats why I said earlier that I really don't have a favorite album or artist. I enjoy discussing music though I guess, but there's no way to ever determine which albums/artists are better than others. For me it's just something that's fun to talk about with other like-minded music fans. I like your description of The Who live experience lol... No I haven't read "Who Am I." Any good?
  9. I haven't heard "This Whole World" in so long! That's a good song! thanks for posting it
  10. I've always been a big Who fan. Speaking of The Who, there are a suprising number of similarities between their abandoned Lifehouse album and the Beach Boys abandoned SMiLE album. For instance, both Pete Townshend and Brian Wilson suffered nervous breakdowns that caused them to scrap their overly ambitious projects (although Pete recovered much quicker). Also, the best tracks from SMiLE were thrown together quickly for the replacement Smiley Smile lp, just like the best tracks from Lifehouse were salvaged to create the Who's Next lp. I don't know if anyone else on here a
  11. I honestly don't have a favorite album. That is a good album though.
  12. I agree! Brian seems to be doing alot better these days too. The Beach Boys reunited and played Good Vibrations at the Grammys last year, and they sounded great. I can't find video of it though or I would post it.
  13. The 2004 Brian Wilson solo remake of SMiLE was good, but nothing can beat the original recordings from 1967. The Wilson brothers, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnson, and Mike Love providing the harmonies. Hal Blaine, Carol Kaye and the Wrecking Crew providing the music. All recorded in Gold Star Studios where Brian's hero Phil Spector recorded all the Ronettes hits. Brian, Van Dyke Parks, and the surviving Beach Boys teamed up in 2011 to finally re-assemble the original SMiLE recordings. It has been digitally remastered and released in box set form, titled "The SMiLE Sessions". It includes a vinyl albu
  14. hahaha it was, wasn't it.. Pet Sounds is a great album though, start to fin.
  15. For all the Beach Boys fans on here, I present the vocal-only version of "Wouldn't It Be Nice". I think it sounds pretty awesome. I remember reading somewhere that Brian had everyone rehearse the vocals to this song for weeks before he was satisfied with it. Mike started calling Brian "dog ears" because of his ability to pick up on flat notes and other mistakes that the other Boys couldn't. Now I'm rambling. Anyways, here it is. Don't fall asleep, Eugenia. lol..
  16. Really? That's all there was to it? huh.. Well, Phil definetly knew what he was doing when it came to recording hits. Too bad he was such a crazy person.
  17. Definitely would have been an incredible experience. Wish I had been there. Missed out..
  18. Crosby Stills & Nash: Suite Judy Blue Eyes (live at Woodstock)
  19. Those are both such good tunes! I haven't heard that Paris Sisters song in so long! I love that reverb drenched sound that so many songs had during that era. It added such depth and an over all dreamy quality to the music. I think record producer Phil Spector took alot of the credit for being one of the first to use echo chambers and different reverbs as an instrument in the studio, he called it "the Wall of Sound". You can hear it in the early Ronettes records especially. Here's one of my favorites by the Ronettes, I hope you enjoy it! The Ronettes - Walking in The Rain
  20. So much good stuff on here! Nice to know I'm not the only one on here who still enjoys this era of music.
  21. In my opinion, good new music is far few and in between. I like this song though: The Lumineers - Ho Hey That Ella and Louis song is one of the cutest love songs ever written. I'll try to match it with this classic: Connie Stephens - Sixteen Reasons http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X6mDRkhFvQ Thanks for the kind words! love and peace, RM68
  22. I would have liked you anyway.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5k_2elWA3c
