    Isn't it about time for Mac Davis to stage a big comeback?

    Hang on Snoopy, hang on...Not sure how someone born before Bob Marley died can be his reincarnation but if you smoke the wacky weed.

    Sure, if the new trend is "perms" for guys.

    Why do you try so hard to freak us out???

    Oh, just a thought: are you Cyb admins trying to cull all us old people who actually know who Mac Davis is???

    This maybe belongs in the Confessions thread, but I just am discovering Tom Waits. I had no freaking clue. Amazing.

    Is this by any chance due to the Tom Waits song ('The Piano has Been Drinking') I linked yesterday?

    You know that it is! I'd seen his name before, and after the link I had to look him up and listen. Couldn't stop. Love it all.

    My second favorite Tom Waits song is "Let it Rain". Check it out if you get a chance

    Will do. I'm going to Graywhale (local used music shop) to find some CDs tonight. I thought about having my daughters get me some stuff on their i-tunes, but it seemed wrong for Mr. Waits somehow.

    I'm a little late to seeing this (apparently it was put together in 2011)...but this might be the best youtube music video I've ever seen (from the folks at Bad Lip Reading, who did some great comedy vids during the presidential debates):

    Why did I say let it rain'? it's Make it rain!

    I don't really try all that hard, but to answer the question, mostly it's just part of playing my on-line persona.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I took my copy of Tom Moon's 1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die off the shelf this morning, put the list into Excel and assigned each recording a random number and am going to randomly select three of those random numbers each day to listen to three of the recordings (with the help of YouTube, iTunes, Spotify, and AllMusic) and then will delete each recording as I listen to it so I don't get any repeats.

    Day 1:
    • Andy Statman, Between Heaven & Earth: Music of the Jewish Mystics
    • Peter Gabriel, Peter Gabriel 3
    • Jimmy Giuffre's 1961 duo, Fusion and Thesis

    A quick recap of Day 1

    Between Heaven & Earth: Music of the Jewish Mystics - Klezmer music meets smooth jazz. Not a fan.
    Peter Gabriel 3 - One of my older brothers listened to Peter Gabriel and Genesis constantly when I was little but I don't think I had ever heard this one before (though I did recognize bits and pieces). It made me want to throw some more Peter Gabriel on the record player when I got home yesterday evening, which I promptly did.
    Fusion and Thesis - I was only able to find a few tracks from each of these two albums but what I found I really liked. If you like Grant Green or Dave Brubeck style jazz (lot of bop, not much dissonance) you'd probably like this. I may actually look around on eBay to see if I can find the full versions of these on vinyl.

    Day 2:
    • The Mars Volta, Bedtime in Goliath
    • Stan Getz & João Gilberto, Getz/Gilberto
    • Almanac Singers, Their Complete General Recordings

    It only took two days to come up with a recording that I already have on my iPod (Bedtime in Goliath).

    I'm looking forward to this mix. I already know I like the Mars Volta album and I like Brazilian jazz so the Getz and Gilberto recording should be interesting. I was going to make a crack about liking the Almanac Singers even though I never heard of them but I love almanacs... but then I saw that Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie are in the band and the music was produced by Alan Lomax so that should be pretty interesting.

    • Beth Orton, Central Reservation
    • Paul Oakenfold, Tranceport

    Day 4:
    • Percy Sledge, When a Man Loves a Woman (7" version)
    • Joni Mitchell, Court & Spark
    • Gang of Four, Entertainment!

    The Gang of Four album is one of my favorites from that era and I was lucky enough to see them perform at Coachella a few years ago.

    Day 5:
    • Gil Scott Heron, Pieces of a Man
    • Gustav Holst, The Planets (William Steinberg - Boston Symphony Orchestra Recording)
    • George Gershwin, The Complete Works for Piano & Orchestra, with Rhapsody in Blue

    Today must be sponsored by the letter "G".

    The Holst piece is the first classical one that is coming up guiding me to a specific orchestral recording. Hopefully Spotify has that.
