    Cluck à l'orange.

    Continued from here.

    Also @Auriaprottu - John Cale - at least the barrel-house parts on "I'm Waiting For The Man", but if we're talking keys in general - the group in the title too.

    Rep @Cris 09 for the title.

    The title is consistent with the wishes of the mob. We will stand down.

    For now.

    Hail Grimes.

    But we played you guys in the snow, so no real way to say how large the gap may be.

    If Imay use this thread to reply one last time from the old one...

    What I was really getting at is the dumbing down/roiding up of music seems to have taken us away from the instruments that were capable of producing great pop in the 70s, and asking myself whether or not today's thirty/fortysomethings are capable of digesting stuff that isn't so much of that. Or whether they're even aware enough to want to.

    Where is the Tapestry of this generation? The James Taylor, CSN (& Y), America, Billy Joel, Lee Michaels, Don McLean, Michael Hedges, Jim Croce (Maury Muehleisen)? There's not even a Tracy Chapman or Suzanne Vega coming down the pike. No Dust In The Wind/Battle Of Evermore/Aimee/Crazy Love... Who dropped the baton on radio-ready folk-ish singer-songwriter-ish music?

    These lyrics seem to be appropriate for what's in store for Trumpy's West Wing people.


    Another one bites the dust
    Another one bites the dust
    And another one gone, and another one gone
    Another one bites the dust…

    Major props to Cris for the thread title, although my favorite NO song isn't on this album. Ceremony (12" version) still blows my mind every time I hear it (which is often) and is one of the first songs on the Scissorkick Collins the movie soundtrack, whenever it gets made.

    Looks to me like you did!

    Depends on whether CCJ wants to drag-ass up in here with dissent.

    Ah! You were looking for another Billy Joel! Does it have to be a young one?

    My album of the year last year was "Case Lang Veirs." The other nominees were Norah Jones' "Day Breaks," Kandace Springs' "Soul Eyes," and Bob Weir's "Blue Mountain" (which really owes nothing to the Grateful Dead, BTW.)

    I also keep an eye on The Milk Carton Kids, Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion, the Decembrists, Tedeschi-Trucks, Sierra Hull, Crystal Bowersox, Grace Potter, Lissie-- but there are a lot of folks who just haven't caught my ear yet, not who will never do so. And it does seem to me that a lot of stuff is machined up to the point that it fades into a sort of urban easy listening slightly crunchy background noise, a kind of aural corn flakes that makes it very hard for even good stuff to catch the ear.

    But then I'm an old fart... about 1972 or 3 I spent an evening trying to find common ground with my father playing him my generation's versions of blues classics played as reverently as the players new how; Joplin's "Turtle Blues," Hot Tuna's "Death Don't Have No Mercy," Fleetwood Mac covering Big Joe Turner, that kind of thing-- no wailing guitars or anything. He just couldn't hear any of it-- there was something he found essential to it that they, despite trying to be true and reverential to the original, were leaving out, and I in listening was not missing at all. I have to assume that the same thing is inevitably true of me although I'm not looking for stuff that sounds like the Byrds from the younger set.

    ??? What made you pick Joel out of that group? I actually added him as an afterthought, but I think he belongs. Just The Way You Are is as well-composed as most jazz standards (could have a second horn instead of vocals), but never became one because Billy Joel.

    I'm looking for new artists to go forward with what's been done but not get so far away from it that the connection isn't immediately audible. And (maybe most importantly) I'm looking to not have to look for it. See, everything I listed, I heard on bog-standard everyday pop/rock AM radio during peak hours. These were HITS. They were the mainstream order of the day, not something for only the studied few to hear.

    Mo mom and I have had these discussions like what you describe with your dad. Mu dad wasn't really a distinguishing listener, but he liked a lot of stuff as background. Mom tends to see things as they were first heard by her. She likes the "Gospel-y" feel of Marvin Gaye's How Sweet It Is, and no matter how any times I try to explain that James Taylor's version is actually moreso, I don't get anywhere with it (tho she likes JT as a whole, wants to hear him live one day. I heard him in Nashville in the early 90s). Just an example.
