I'm hard pressed to believe that this single from the second album came out at the same time as the first album. Can somebody check the date?

"Black Mommy" only picks up for a couple minutes in the middle and I remember literally nothing about "Pretty Afternoon" or "The World Is Waiting for the Sunrise," but otherwise this CD is a keeper. Fahey reprises the two first tracks from his Of Rivers ... See full review

posted a comment on Big Black (2) - Diggin' What You're Doin' / Mellow. 22 days ago
Different version of "Diggin' What You're Doing " from that on the album. Side 2, "Mellow," is an Elton John cover, and a great track to play for your old lady/man on a special evening. A real slow burner. Neither track is very good for samples, ... See full review

truly Flynt's anger will be relevant until some miracle collapses the world wrought by the CIA. ESP-disk would've definitely released this though, made it a dang collector's item by now
posted a review of Nona Hendryx & Gary Lucas - The World Of Captain Beefheart. 22 days ago
The "Safe as Milk" covers are lame, but the miracle of this concept is that the ideas from "Clear Spot" and "The Spotlight Kid" are finally reconciled to those from "Trout Mask Replica" and "Lick My Decals Off, Baby." As good as any Beefheart cover band ... See full review

First side is great, uniformly excellent songs. They really stumbled on side 2 -- I can barely remember anything about the tracks on here, except for the exquisite "Trash." Maybe I need to listen to them more.

It's incredible what kind of "grunge" legend people will make out of an awful hair metal band whose singer was sadly killed by his drug addiction. Buy my copy.

I bought this recording to hear a hundred guitars playing a symphony together. No ornate composition, this -- more like Scriabin, all polytonality and pomp and big un-rhythmic tympani flourishes for twelve to twenty minutes at a time. Not to mention ... See full review

They should have trimmed the forgettable jug bands and replaced them with the original blues artists' versions of these tracks. Imagine not only John Hurt's "Nearer My God to Thee" but also his "Frankie," "I Shall Not Be Moved," and "Make Me a Pallet On ... See full review

Spotty art rock, but "Cabin Man" and "Death In the Tall Weeds" hit it home. Worth it for those two.

Just like the Rolling Stones' "I Just Want to See His Face" is the first Tom Waits song, "If I Could Have Her Tonight" predicts the entire R. Stevie Moore catalog. Has anyone asked Moore about whether this track influenced him?

What is it about Bob Dylan (and John Fahey, for that matter) that compels him to steal so many song titles from old music? "Bye and Bye," "High Water," "Po' Boy," "Sugar Baby" -- the list goes on...

I know three people who have copies (I don't) of this: the guy who entered it on Discogs, the lady who put up clips of it online to listen to and download, and the Music Critic mark prindle. An uncommon find.

My matrix is the same as the original pressing, which is slightly different from this one, and its side 1 label color matches that of the original rather than that of this pressing. But it's heavier than I imagine the Eighties pressings were, the sleeve ... See full review

Chris Cornell's beautiful rare track "Sunflower" is the best and probably only reason to own this. I say "own" because the main question here isn't whether to buy this immediately dated, dollar-bin soundtrack, but whether it's worthy of a place in your ... See full review

Who would've thought people loved Satch's first album enough to buy a 180-gram vinyl reissue in 2015? Besides me, that is. I guess everything that rises must converge.

Way better than James' comp "Blues from the Delta," which I had been listening to a few weeks before this one. Somehow the nameless engineer in 1931 managed to mike both the piano and the guitar better than the engineers in 1966 and 1968. The sound ... See full review

What is the point of the tiny CD's? They'd never play in an automatic CD player, only in a portable personal one. I don't understand why this was printed in the first place.
