    The idea of this thread is that each person

    1. Find a record in the person above them's Discogs collection that they should listen to ASAP
    2. Then have the person below them choose a record they need to listen to

    Basically just like that one thread where we gave record recommendations based on the collections of the person above us. And it doesn't have to be limited to the vinyl format, and the record can be any length (single, EP, album, box set, etc.), it just has to be something the person above you already owns and has listed on here.

    :)
  • jonas_dussell about 1 year ago

    To clarify: I would look at your collection and choose an album that you should re-visit? Then the next person would look at my collection and recommend one of my own to me? Or, I choose one from my collection that you should listen to, and the next poster chooses one from their collection that I should listen to?
  • guitarromantic about 1 year ago

    guitarromantic edited about 1 year ago
    Yes, you look at my collection, choose one from there you think I should listen or re-listen to, then the next person to post chooses one from your collection that they think you should listen or re-listen to. In your case, for example, I'd say that you should relisten to Neil Young With Crazy Horse* - Zuma. I have that album on vinyl, it's not his best work but I'd give it more than three stars.

    Fun fact: my AP World History teacher would play "Cortez the Killer" to each of her classes during the part of the year where we studied the Spanish colonization of America. My friend Kelsey, who was a grade below me, was a fan of the song from her dad playing it for her, and actually did an interpretive dance to it as extra credit when she took that class. That song always takes me back to high school.

    @MedozK: Muddy Waters - Muddy Waters At Newport 1960. Great live album, great blues album, great album in general. Best tracks are "I've Got My Mojo Workin'" and "Tiger in Your Tank". I have it on vinyl, too bad mine's a Dutch import,

    @jonas_dussell: I love that album, not sure why I only gave it four stars the last time I heard it on vinyl.

    http://www.discogs.com/King-Sunny-Ad%C3%A9-And-His-African-Beats-Juju-Music/release/527483- 1st track- "Ja Funmi"- was a HUGE club hit in NYC back in the '80's! I still carry my 12" promo in my gig bag once in a while...

BTW, as an audio engineer by trade, I have to say this is one of the best engineered records that I have heard.

    Portishead - Roseland NYC Live. Great live album from a great band.

    I did my first assignment! Relistened to In the Aeroplane Over the Sea, and loved it very much. I think I was testing out a new needle or something when I rated my vinyl copy a mere 4 stars. Will listen to King Sunny Ade and The Blasters in a bit.

  • guitarromantic about 1 year ago

    After a long, drama-filled Thanksgiving weekend, I'm sitting down and listening to my recommendations from this thread, starting with King Sunny Ade. I dig this album a lot, would definitely recommend it to friends interested in African or "worldbeat" music (whatever happened to worldbeat???) but the louder drum sounds are clipping on my old JBL speakers that I use as auxillary speakers on my stereo. I know a girl who would love this album, and who has speakers that would really make the bass shine, but something must have happened this weekend, because she randomly unfriended me on Facebook. ??? /personaldramarant
  • Nahuatl about 1 year ago

    MO-Music13, I ended up listening to that Tubeway Army album (which I bought on CD years ago but have never heard on vinyl) while I worked in my kitchen the day before Thanksgiving.

    It brought me back to the days when I really got into Gary Numan - I would say anyone born in the '80s or before knows his hit "Cars" but it was through my fandom of The Rentals that I dug deeper. Matt Sharp, my musical hero back in 1995, referenced Numan in an interview in Alternative Press and I started seeking his albums out.

    My favorite tracks are probably "Praying To The Aliens" and "Down In The Park" - the lyrics really spark my imagination and fill it with his vivid dystopian world - perfect for the teenage mind.

    Also - Zuckuss, thanks for the kind words!

  • Korpse about 1 year ago

    Zuckuss, I think you should listen to David Bowie - "Heroes". I used to own it but sold it in a frenzy of downsizing in the early 90s. it's one of the records I sold that I really regret selling and need to replace at some stage soon.
  • guitarromantic about 1 year ago

    Zuckuss, I shall listen to it in a bit. I have listened to and enjoyed it, but not to the extent that most do.

    Korpse, I would recommend one of your Godsmack albums, since I saw them live in middle school (possibly the best gig of my life) but I've not actually listened to any of their studio stuff. So I'll give props to X (5) - Under The Big Black Sun.
  • GoodGuyAttorney about 1 year ago

    Da Capo was beautiful. I'd listened to it twice before, but not paid close attention - a lovely blend of pop and psych. The kind of album I'd recommend to friends. My favorite track was either "Orange Skies" or "¡Que Vida!".

    Thanks for the rec, Good Guy. I've not listened to any Beefheart from beginning to end! A friend of mine has a reissue of Safe as Milk, I'll ask her to play it for me soon. However, I have heard ZNR - Barricade 3 on MP3, wasn't too impressed but I'd like to hear it someday on vinyl. There's your rec.
  • nickster66 about 1 year ago

    guitarromantic,

    I am going to try Bob Dylan's Time Out Of Mind. My collection of his work consists of exactly one album (Nashville Skyline) and two or three songs downloaded from iTunes. The problem for me has been that his legend has always been a bit too daunting. I just can't take all the adulation and praise heaped upon him. But I honestly love Girl From The North Country and Lay Lady Lay, so I will give this a try.

    I've not listened to it yet! The record, that is, not the piece. I love classical but know almost nothing about it.

    I'm gonna recommend you (re?)listen to Amy Winehouse - Back To Black. I saw the new documentary about her the other night, apparently she was planning a "battle rap" album before her death that would have been as part of a supergroup with Mos Def, ?uestlove, and Raphael Saadiq.

    I can't give this any less than five stars. I honestly can't think of anything like it - there are some sounds out there that are reminiscent of it, for sure, but nothing else comes to mind which combines those classic sweet, sad late '50s/early '60s pop songs with the haunting, synthetic synth sounds that Badalamenti used on this soundtrack. Always a great listen, but particularly at night.

  • guitarromantic 11 months ago

    Sorry I've not posted in a while! So my homework is Vivaldi and The Strokes, right? I'll hand the two people right above me two recommendations each, then, to get the fun back up and running...

    Jonas. I am recommending you Weezer - Weezer. It's a beautiful 90s masterpiece that I'm interested in hearing your take on, especially since it's a MFSL pressing you've got. I'm interested in buying their pressing of Pinkerton someday, but I'm not completely sold on the hype. After that, Sonic Youth - Confusion Is Sex.

    lock3down. Your first assignment is Echo & The Bunnymen - Songs To Learn & Sing, a record I used to own on CD but stupidly donated to the library. After that, if you're willing to play picture discs, why not The Clash - Should I Stay Or Should I Go / Straight To Hell? The A side is a really good song, and the AA side is one of the best songs they recorded after London Calling.
  • lock3down 11 months ago

    Guitarromantic - just finished listening again. Great choices. I still have my CD copy of Songs To Learn And Sing that I bought way back in the day and just picked up the vinyl copy last month. Can't go wrong with that compilation. And I completely agree with you about Straight To Hell - fantastic. No issues playing picture discs. :)
    I feel like you've been given too many to listen to in this thread, but if you feel like one more, Pulp - This Is Hardcore is worth a spin. The title track is absolutely brilliant and Help The Aged was a great single.
  • jonas_dussell 11 months ago

    No joke, Weezer was on the top of my shelf, ready to be listened to before you mentioned it. I love that album, though not as much as Pinkerton. Sound quality is great on the vinyl. The only song I would remove would be "Surf Wax America", which I would replace with the b-side track "Suzanne"

    Confusion Is Sex can be a challenging listen, but I was in the mood for noise, so it was a grew choice. I love the early no-wave days of SY and Confusion has some killer tracks, but my absolute favorite song ("Brother James") was on the Kill Yr Idols EP, so I tend to reach for my CD copy of Confusion since it is attached on there.

    When the Doors entered a Hollywood recording studio to make their debut album at the end of August 1966, they knew what they wanted. Months of serving as house band at the Whisky a Go Go had sharpened their playing and performing skills to the point where one member of the quartet could abruptly swerve toward a new direction and the others would follow without missing a beat.

  • barlfire 11 months ago

    barlfire edited 11 months ago
    I'd go for Tanx first. The double CD reissue is well worth picking up as it contains non album singles and b-sides from the time of its release. Tanx completes Bolan's classic Glam Rock phase that began with Electric Warrior and the Slider. I also highly recommend Zinc Alloy... this album seems to divide opinion and was slated by critics at the time of release for its over ambition and production. Although by no means his best album, personally I think it is his most underrated work. There are still signs of his trademark Glam Rock sound but he was also experimenting with soul sounds as was Bowie with his 'plastic soul' phase. Also the self-titled T Rex debut is a personal favourite. It is pre-Glam Rock and continues Bolan's transition from acoustic based songs to electric ones that he started with Tyrannosaurus Rex's 'A Beard of Stars', hope this helps.
  • MO-Music13 11 months ago

  • barlfire 11 months ago

    My pleasure Nahuatl, yeah although the CDs are easy to pick up reasonably cheaply now, the original pressings of Tyrannosaurus Rex vinyl are rather expensive if you want a clean copy. Worth sticking them on your Discogs want list because relatively cheaper copies in good condition do crop up from time to time if you're happy to wait, as I found.

    MO-Music13 cool, that Crosby album is a fine record isn't it.

    Since the girlfriend is busy today, I've decided to clear through my recommendations from this thread... just got done with The Four Seasons and deeply enjoyed it. My favorite part about that piece is the strings, especially the violin. The violin can be both the most melancholic and most ecstatic of classical instruments, and it shows on this recording, especially in the Winter section's final frenzy that (I assume) symbolizes the "rage against the dying of the light" one feels in their later years.

    I'll get to The Strokes in a moment, but here's a rec for MO first: Neil Diamond - Love At The Greek: Recorded Live At The Greek Theatre. Diamond is an acquired taste, so I can understand you only rating this one three stars, but I'd give it a four.

    Comedown Machine was, well, a comedown compared to Vivaldi. I feel like The Strokes have been coasting off of the greatness of their first album for their entire career, and though side A and the first half of side B are very listenable, with "Welcome to Japan" and "80s Comedown Machine" being very enjoyable songs, as a whole it's nothing new or exceptional. There are so many better indie bands that deserve the press and hype that these dudes get - Twin Sister, Shannon and the Clams, Xiu Xiu, and Panda Bear, just to name four that are in my collection.

    Looking forward to This Is Hardcore, tho - as you said, lock3down, the title track is killer.
