  1. Some of those live 20+ minute jams will definitely get your motor running. There's an energy and forward momentum there that is genuinely unique. Tony Allen is one of the best drummers most have never heard of.
  2. Peter Brotzmann's attorneys are preparing a lawsuit as we speak.
  3. Return Of The Film Corner Thread

    Jean Pierre !!! Jean Pierre !!! A bit soapy at times but when they stick to racing, it's excellent.
  4. Dean Benedetti‘s disc cutter.

    I thought Benedetti used a wire recorder.
  5. I saw Bouton pitch for the Portland Mavericks (the subject of the documentary, "The Battered Bastards Of Baseball") in the 70's. By then, he was a knuckleballer. He went 4-1 with a 2.20 ERA. "Ball Four" along with Jim Brosnan's book, "The Long Season" both put baseball under a microscope that was not particularly flattering.
  6. Great in-the-stands fight

    You ain't seen nothin' yet. Wait until they start selling alcohol at SEC football games.
  7. Jim Morrison died 48 years today, so I'm spinning some Doors LP's.
  8. Return Of The Film Corner Thread

    Agreed. If this one doesn't hold your attention, check your pulse. Hanks is terrific.
  9. LPs that have never made it into CD

    Rara avis. There's one LP on Discogs going for $168 and change.
  10. Santana - Africa Speaks

    Listened to some samples yesterday. Not impressed. It almost seems like he's trying too hard. All things considered, Santana is easily one of my all-time Top 10 bands, but every dog has its day.
  11. Rock exploded in 1971?

    The past is like a foreign country. Things are different there. As to the band America, I have only one thing to say. MAGA. Shitty lyrics and all, I love those guys.
  12. If you've never watched one of Rick Beato's "What Makes This Song Great" videos, you should try him on for size. Here's his deconstruction of Van Halen's "Runnin' With The Devil". I also highly recommend his his interview with Peter Frampton done prior to the disclosure of Frampton's degenerative illness.
  13. Nostalgia

    Thought some long time posters might enjoy this walk down memory lane.
  14. Not to beat a dead horse, but Jarrett - a preternaturally talented and driven musician - has made himself unwatchable by virtue of his need to play the piano with his whole body ala Jerry Lee Lewis and unlistenable by virtue of his attempts to replicate what the other Jerry Lewis might have sounded like if he was on crack. There's a rather obscure CD of his called "Live At The Deer Head Inn", one I still listen to on occasion when my tolerance levels are extraordinarily high, that would be full of remarkable music if he would just STFU. I don't get it. It's too bad they can't remix his oeuvre and remove the caterwauling.
