stuck in the snowstorm here, so, nothing better to do than bore you fine people.

Caravan was unknown to me, but I hear a lot of XTC -type origins-of-pop, thank you.

SWIMMER

Crystal (call it a day, start it off, pioneer - are among her best. yet nothing like hearing the woman live. freezing nights every weekend in brooklyn, paying a cabbie so that she could get home safe to wherever. walking the 20 blocks home my ownself and feeling I'd gotten the better half of the bargain...)

a relentless snowstorm in Manhattan, + Crystal, was sort of the way I met my wife. boring story for another time.

People, you have to listen to this!
Ignacy Jan Paderewski, a former Polish Prime Minister's Piano Concerto, Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgYKx0i6wL0
Play the youtube download between 17:15 and 27:30.
Turn up the volume, and be blown off your chair (especially around 24:45)!
Superb!

I dare ANYbody NOT to like this!

Not what I usually listen to, but a slight dose of 90's prog rock on a Saturday night here. Conception - Roll the fire.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ri52J9JEi7M

This is a norwegian band, but some of you might recognize the name of vocalist, Roy Khan, which later became the vocalist of the US band Kamelot. I never listened much to Kamelot, as my fascination for this kind of music has declined vastly over the years, but I have fond memories of what Conception did back in the days. Amongst others, this song from their 1993 album, Parallel Minds. Khan's vocal is by some ranked as close to Queensryche's Geoff Tate.

To reopen an old thread, this evening I put on an old album by Dire Straits and listened to 'Telegraph Road', 'Tunnel of Love', 'Romeo & Juliet' and it sent me back to the 1980s faster than a time machine.
Incredibly great music from really good musicians. 8)

Amen.

I got to work on their "Brothers In Arms" tour and will attest that they were nice people to deal with in person as well.

Hi George,
Mark Knopfler and John Illsley now live as neighbours on the Solent coastline between Southampton and Lymington in the New Forest National Park. A beautiful place to live and way outside my budget. John owns the East End Arms pub in a tiny village called East End. The pub serves great beers and good food. We were at the pub in February and it was packed.
Good luck to them. They lightened our lives with their great music.
Peter

I'm listening to some very relaxing music called "Concentration programming music."

Found on youtube. The artist has made all 4 tracks available on his dropbox. About 4.5 hours in total. I have been listening to them for weeks now. I get home from work, reboot into linux (so nice to be out of Windows), fire up the tunes in VLC and hit the web. Work has gotten super stressful (in a good way) lately, and this helps my very much. I keep meaning to copy them over to my phone also.

Inspired by the latest post, I have been playing Dire Strait's Greatest Hits album in the car on my way to work for a couple of days now. Some great songs there. Their Brothers in Arms was the first cassette tape I ever bought, back in 1985. I was 11 years at the time, and I remember I saved for some weeks to buy it. I still have it, but I added the CD version some years later.

Right now I listen to another band, Death Cab For Cutie. Originally a band that our youngest daughter listened to back when we lived in the US. A bit mellow, but I like it, and bought the album Plans when I found it in the store not too long ago. Some pleasant songs there, amongst others this one: Death Cab For Cutie - Brothers On a Hotel Bed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdfAAo4ReS0

I enjoy Death Cab For Cutie also.

This song is often stuck in my head.

+ 1.

Right now, I'm quite a bit on the darker side, listening to the very last song that Layne Staley ever recorded with AIC...

George I love Alice in Chains :!: we used to play Man in the Box and No Excuses in one band I was in a couple years ago. Jerry Cantrell is way up there in guitarists.

here's me playing some VH, just a little bit, though.

Mike it's so good to see you back on TPF, even just for a split second!

I see that you haven't lost your touch when it comes to making that Strat scream either... :thumbs-UP:

Thanks George, had to share my love of AIC. :mrgreen: :bow: :banana: I think AIC like STP and Pearl Jam, Collective Soul were the exceptional bands back in those days, still love them and love to play them. :banana:

Listening to Roger Williams in a Latin Mood/Amor on Kapp Stereo LP, spinning it on my Technics SP-25 broadcast turntable with an Audio-Technica ATP 16-T 12" transcription tonearm with an Ortofon Omega cartridge in a custom plinth, and using my McIntosh MC 2505-2 power amplifier, and my McIntosh MX 114 tuner-preamplifier and my Dynaco A 25 speakers.

Currently listening to some piano music I recorded about a month ago for someone who wanted me to produce a Christmas album for them. My Sennheiser HD-595s always do justice to symphonic style pieces.

Flora Purim radio on Pandora. :wink:

I was first made aware of Flora Purim in the late 1970's by a friend of my brother's. Haven't stopped listening after all these years. Timeless music...

Yep. A sad day for R&R indeed. I was listening to both Hawkwind and Motorhead last night in his honour.

And tonight - since I'm off tomorrow - I'll add some liquor into the mix as well.
