Glad someone else likes them. Their new album is one of my favorites of the year.

Same to you.

I'm still listening to that Foals LP.
It kicks my sorry arse.
These guitars are awesome.
Pitchfuck gave it a 5.9 and said that they could "hardly recommend it".

I will give pitchfork, the tiny start-up record review site just starting to get its wings, a 3.3.

Pulled this out of the "not played in ages" pile this morning. A masterpiece.

Suishou No Fune - Prayer for Chibi

atsonicpark 08.27.2008 09:11 AM

^^^ Godlike.

gmku 08.27.2008 09:15 AM

I'm wondering if there are any afficionados here of the Blue Note stuff?

MellySingsDoom 08.27.2008 09:33 AM

^^^Haven't got a huge amount of their stuff - but Eric Dolphy's "Out To Lunch" is always a winner at Melly Towers.

gmku 08.27.2008 09:37 AM

Yeah, that's a good one. I've got the CD.

I went on a Blue Note LP buying binge a few years ago. Just love that late 50s to early 60s stuff, and the album covers are so nice.

MellySingsDoom 08.27.2008 10:20 AM

Those album covers are total works of art. Kinda like "classic" art in comparison to some of the bonkers ones ESP-Disk put out a decade later ("Cromagnon", anyone?).

noisereductions 08.27.2008 10:31 AM

Can't say I'm an afficianado, BUT I do love tons of old blue note recs. What did you buy in yr binge?

gmku 08.27.2008 10:37 AM

Jackie McClean - Destination Out
Blue Mitchell - Down with It
Herbie Hancock - Maiden Voyage
Wayne Shorter - Speak No Evil & All Seeing Eye
John Coltrane - Blue Trane
Tina Brooks - True Blue
Hank Mobley - Slice off the Top
Sonny Rollins - (vol 2 or something like that, forget the name)
Cannonball Adderly - Something Else
a few other things

all on vinyl

And I bought several things on CD that weren't on LP at the time (but that later became available, darnit!)

gmku 08.27.2008 10:43 AM

Also Judgement! by Andrew Hill and Etcetera by Wayne Shorter

All great stuff. But after a while it all becomes sort of same-y sounding.

Oh, one of the coolest of them all -- Cool Struttin' by Sonny Clark! I originally bought it on CD but when I saw it come out on LP I just had to get it again because of the cover.


noisereductions 08.27.2008 10:59 AM

Wow, never seen that one. Philly Joe is the shiz on the skins, man. Check his work with Miles (obviously). I have an awesome album by him called BLUES FOR DRACULA.

"That album cover is awesome. I'm gonna get that album." Ha!

gmku 08.27.2008 11:01 AM

It's a superlative Blue Note session, and that cover is killer. One of those albums you have to have on LP for the cover.

gmku 08.27.2008 11:03 AM

I always feel like with 50s and 60s jazz it's not quite the same if you don't have the LP. Because it originally was made for the LP, etc., seems only right that you have it on the vintage format. I'm not quite as particular about rock (though I still prefer the LP), but for jazz of a certain era I have to have the LP.

noisereductions 08.27.2008 11:07 AM

I tend to only pickup vinyl if it's something I've never seen issued on CD... the majority of my exotica and 50's/60's mood music is on vinyl, mainly because most of the CD reissues of that sort of stuff is limited to a greatest hits collection kind of thing.
