WHOA, just watched the Cincinnati Bengals (NOT my team, you know I am a Vikings fan) GIFT
WRAP and willingly hand over a playoff game to a divisional rival, I REALLY don't think I've ever seen a game, especially a playoff game, have that type of an ending, I don't care what they do, but if I were running that organization, I'd say to myself, "How can YOU NOT fire a coach who cannot keep his team from acting like thuggish fools with 2 minutes to go in maybe the franchise's most importanta game in 20 years or so?"......well, these things are not for ME to decide, and, tomorrow, after the Seahawks thump the Vikings, we'll all be in the same boat, but I HOPE the Vikings simply lose because they are the lesser team, not because they make a door-prize gift out of the game as did Cincinnati.......that team should be ashamed of thtemselves.
So, let us advance to my much awaited views on the remaining discs.....Volume 13 leads off with, of
ALL things, Frankie Goes To Hollywood's abysmal "Relax", but other than that, this is a pretty good collection. Wang Chung's "Dance Hall Days' was a good one, we get a track from the WAY too rarely comped Bus Boys, pluse Echo & the Bunnymen, Ultravox, and the Bangles are bands of the era that are certainly representative. (Confession: until maybe a year ago, I thought the lyric to "Dance Hall Days" was "we were cool on Christ", when it is actually "we were cool on craze".......fuck you.)
So , shall we investigate Disc 14? I always really liked (for SOME reason?) After the Fire's "Der Kommisar, we also get some Art of Noise, Colour Field, Let's Active.......all either good OR fairly rarely comped tracks, a worthwhile disc.
The final "regular" disc of the set is Disc 15 (hold on, there is more) hasome good stuff on it (one would guess they had run out of "obvious" material by now, myself, I'd MUCH rather hear the lesser-known stuff than the stuff I already have on ten comps)......I always liked "Walking On Sunshine" by Katrina and the Waves (shut up), and there is some fairly out there tracks on this one.....Strawberry Switchblade, Scritti Politti, Lords of the New Church..........hey, if you've hung out THIS long, you will probably be wanting this one, too, without any description from me......
OK, there are a three OTHER discs to this set.......aside from the "official" 15 volumes......these
"other" three discs DO contain some over-lap with the previous discs in the set, but there IS 9trust me) enough worthwhile stuff here that you'll want to investigate.....as I've said all along on this one, program as suits your needs! First up, I guess we'll call it "Volume 16", is "New Wave Women", of COURSE I am going to love THAT just for it's title, but, check this out.....Berlin's awesome "Sex (I'm A.......)" (hey I know a lotta people hate that song. Fuck you it's great), The Divinyls wondersome female masturbationode "I Touch Myself", The Eurythmics? Lene Lovich? The Pandoras? sounds essential to me........
OK, the final, 18th disc of this series is New Wave Halloween....arguably the best disc of teh series (for some reason, this stuff melds really well with goth-type-stuff), it opens with "The Time Warp" from the "Rocky Horror Picture Show", which is wonderful, we get the fantastic (and NEVER comped MX-80 Sound) as well as the great Ministry, we have Siouxsie and the Banshees, Dream Syndicate (IMO thier best track, "Halloween"), Dead Kennedys and Roky Erikson & the Alines....if that isn't enough for ya you be on the wrong blog.
OK, wanted to get THIS set done, I have a BUNCH of ideas/drafts in reserve that I want to share
with ya before I gotta go back to work.......really, been working hard to try to compile some things that I hope are of interst to you, and of course, as, always, I want to thank my guest posters, they are wonderful, and give the blog a more multi-layered personality, rather than just reflecting MY OWN (boring) personality.
Go Vikings........a fan since 1969, WIN OR LOSE.........look out in 2016!

Hope you've enjoyed this big ol set, I have some more ideas for stuff I anna do the next couple weeks, I hope I can get em all done.......I am the kind of person that "starts" 30 projects at once and finishes them.......well, whenever.....I do take a BIT of pride in the blog though, and I TRY to (along with my wonderful contributors), to keep it fresh, DIFFERENT, and something you can't see on every share blog.....believe it or not, I DO THIS STUFF FOR YOU GUYS, even those who hate me and call me names and don't even understand what I am doing here....AT LEAST I made them THINK, at least for a MINUTE, and maybe that is ALL i can contribute.
In a posting mood, don't be surprised if I post tomorrow and a few days next week, I have so many
ideas I want to put out there....I know Brian is working on a great project too, I won't tell you what it is, But WOW it's going to be badass when he gets it done.....
Come on VIKINGS........just don't embarass me and we'll be fine........this team went 11-5 with maybe 9-7 talent......as I've been saying all along, 2016/17 THAT is the target, not 2015......shouled the lose to Seattle 56-0, as long as they make maximum effort to ensure the next couple of years, I, as a fan of the team, will overwhelmingly approve of the job they have done this season......AND, imagine, by some chance, they were to WIN tomorrow? Doubtful, but it would be one of the biggest wins in the history of the franchise!
There are some bands that I was WAY into, searching out every note they ever recorded.....Nirvana,
Rocy music, Mott the Hoople, The Velvet Underground, Sleater Kinney.........and then, there are thousands of other bands whose music I love, but I am really just a dabbler.......Bwhile thier adfinger would be a fine example of this......while thier "best of" is (I think) the only one of thier efforts on my shelf, every now and then I slip it on, and ....well, wow.......modern day power pop would be unimagineable if not for these boys....well that may be overstatement, BUT if you are a power-pop fan, listen to this stuff, and be amazed by how far ahead of its time this stuff was.
The band, roughly, was Pete Ham, guitar/vocal/keyboards, Joey Molland, guitar/vocals/keyboard, Tom Evans on bass, and Mike Gibbons on drums, with some other guest contributors and replacement members along the road. Thier music served, to me, as the PERFECT link between The Beatles and Cheap Trick on the awesome clean-yet-sonically-pleasing power pop-meter.......PLEASE check out the amazing (if you are uninititated) "Baby Blue", "Day After Day", and "No Matter What", classic singles all (I am especially partial to "Baby Blue"), as well as second-team material, such as "Come and Get It" and "Without You".......OK, I'll admit to being not a real fan of thier albums, but pop on THIS comp, and groove to an hour of pure-power pop excellence.
Just got to thinking about them a while ago and decided to pull out this disc, sounded so good, I HAD to put it up. Rarities, live recordings, demos, etc, would be thought of as gifts from God, should any of you have them. Consider this a "bonus post", for NO REASON WHATSOEVER, from the BigMan!

Just sitting up tonight, looking forward to the Vikings game tomorrow.........got some plans for the blog the enxt few days, a couple glam comps, a few Beatles "cover album projects", some foreign language thrash metal from Poland and Germany........ALL stuff the discriminating rock n roller will have trouble living without!
No doing too well with the passing of L'Bowie, one of my faves, (also one of my wife's favorites, and
one could even say one of my Dad's, as well, as he took me to see L'Bowie on my 12th birthday)....saw him a few times over the years, the last about 20 year back when he teamed with Trent Reznor for that fine series of concerts (I'll post one when I get to the "real" tribute).
Coz this ain't it....I already had theses in the works, a few choice glitter/glam comps of the 1970's.....while I love the simple/goofy glam rock of the era, there are a few things wrong here.....while there is plenty of Bowie, the contexts are awful, breaking up side 2 of "Ziggy" or side 2 of "Diamond Dogs", well, it just ain't right.....and as a "tribute", rather than a silly goof, it assumes that we can put Bowie (as well as Roxy Music, they both transcended the scene by MILES) in the same general category with Slade and Suzi Quatro, it doesn't REALLY fit, it'll be ok for now,but once I construct a PROPER tribute fans of L'Bowie should be happy. (btw I know Brian has some good Bowie stuff on the way while I finish THIS one up......I just want to stress, while this is titled "RIP David Bowie", it is NOT "My David Bowie Tribute".......that will be soon, you will be happy with it.
But, what we got here? well, like the titles tell ya, first we get three discs of "The Golden Era of Glam
Rock 1971-76"......plenty of obvious tracks that we could argue for inclusion, lots of Bowie tracks, T Rex, Slade, Quatro, Sweet.......nothing rare imo, but if you were a "glam novice", perhaps you'd begin here...by the way, who the fuck decided the fucking Osmond Brothers "Crazy Horses" belongs here? I recall someone covered it on the great "Sucking in the Seventies" set, but HERE? OK, man....
The second disc of the set includes some CLASSIC tracks, such as Mott the Hoople's "All the Young Dudes" and Roxy's "Do the Strand", "Suffergette City" from Bowie, all destroyedby the context in which they are programmed.....I hope most of you have this great music, on the original albums......hopefully VINYL! Another disc with PLENTY of Sweet, Slade, T Rex, and a couple lesser known acts, Chicory Tip and Blackwood Sue.....glitter/glam did not offer up a "deep" field of music, when tracks like Blackwood Sue's, for exmaple, emerge, they are a fine addition to these comps (a three disc, Nuggets-type anthology of unknown glam tracks of the era would be a Godsend.......perhaps I'll put it on my list........
More great Bowie tracks (heard in thte wrong context again, sigh, "Drive In Saturday" and "Rebel Rebel" are among his best, but they need to be heard in proper context, sorry......Sweet and some of the other regulars of the series turn up, but this third disc contains the most varied example of stuff, such as Wizzard, Showaddywaddy, MUD, and even Sparks.
As a tribute to Bowie, this doesn't work......there are good tracks here, buried in between Gary Glitter and Suzy Quatro, this works more like a K-TEL set......had Bowie not left us, this would be just a fun batch of records, but things change.....all I can say is wait for my REAL Bowie tribute (tomorrow? we'll see!)
Next up, another 3-disc set, somewehat similar with a bit of overlap, "Glam Rock Anthology".....The
Dolls turn up here, they missed the other set somehow, classic Dolls tunes as well...the Runaways tear into "Saturday night Special", Bowie/Iggy Pop's duet on "China Girl" is memorable, we also get a wider spectrum of lesser known selections.....Hello, Robert Glass (covering "Life on Mars"), great tracks from Suede, Cherie Currie's post-Runaways take on "Cherry Bomb", Patrick Star, Geordie......I think the inclusion of some of theses acts, as well as better programming makes this the superior effort to the one above.
Last batch for tonight, from ME at least, is a mere TWO disc selection, along the same lines....."Dynamite, The Best of Glam Rock".....many of the same representative acts show up here as on the other two sets, plus stuff from Angel, Medecine Head, Cozy Powell ("Dance With the Devil"......a fine drumpiece that has (?) to do with glam rock........
Anyway, as I said I was already working on this when L'Bowie passed, so I decided to go ahead with it.....I'm torn when one of the greats passes, as Lemmy did the other day.....should I get up something to tribute them at ONCE? Or take my time and get a REALLY good one out there?
In the case of L'bowie, he was such a great that he deserves the best......I'll be working on his situation
the the enxt day or two, but PLEASE......if you have ANYTHING of interest (rare/live/demo/spoken word) NOW is the time to remember the great David Bowie and how much better he made our lives.....I know for a fact that mine is better, and I thank you David Bowie, for your greatness.

OK, as a tribute to the late great bowie, this doesn't get it done for me........I'll find some more respectable material tomorrow to bring this thing home.......for now, though, at least relive the 1970's glam/glitter era, which was wonderful if you were there!
Things start out with two versions from the time period. The Tremoloes'"Time Is On My Side" has some great pop vocal harmony work. The Nightcrawlers'"Heart Of Stone" is pretty straightforward. Then things get odd. Yat-Kha is a Mongolian group that incorporates throat singing with Western music styles. Their version of "Play With Fire" has some real menace to it with those deeeeep vocals! I love it. Otis Redding brings that Stax soul heat to his version of "Satisfaction". Isn't that the song that really blew away the audience at Monterey '67? I think I've heard that.
listen - you can tell they had to really dampen Moonie's drums! Julian Lennon's great take of "Ruby Tuesday" stands out as my fave cover of the song. Was gonna put in somebody else's cover of "Let's Spend the Night Together", but in light of current events, Bowie's great version stands. 60's oddballs The Godz deliver a nice scuzzy take on "Jumpin' Jack Flash".
How am I supposed to tribute David Bowie? Those glam comps I put up the other day were far from
tributary, if anything, they tend to insult the guy, putting him on a comp with the fucking Bay City Roller......hell I was going to put up a ton of rare shit, but I have SO MUCH it would take days and would be so much work (to do it correctly).......so, here's what we'll have......today and either tomorrow or over the weekend, we'll put up a handful of stuff, sorry if you already have some of it, I'm picking pretty much at random.
First up: "Absolutely Rare", it contains some live tracks from the early 70's, duets with Marianne Faithful and Lulu, and a handful of demos......pretty haphazard, but this is the kind of thing I have a bunch of......
Next set is simply titled "Outtakes and Rare Singles", great versions of "Width of a Circle", "Rebel Rebel", "Lady Stardust" and more......included because there is a good bit of stuff I havene't seen on the web the last few days.
Forget where I got this one but it's not as good as it sounds like it would be, is prettty rare tough I think..."Bowie-1973 Lost Sessions W/Lou Reed and Mott the Hoople".....we get Bowie fronting Mott for "All the Young Dudes" and some other fun throwaways, Lou Reed joins for vocals on "Sweet Jane", then Reed fronts Mott for a few tracks.....an interesting curiosity.
Next up I just found an EP "1971 Outtakes", which is just what it sounds like, there is a tiny bit of overlap with "outtakes and Rare Singles", but enough unique material to make inclusion worthwhile.
Gonna close this up for today with two discs from the next 'phase", the 1976 PNE Vancouver Live Rehearsal tapes, fairly rare, I think, as well, which features some good post-Ziggy material.
I know I haven't quite waxed poetic on these albums, but what can you say? Enjoy them, I have a bunch more for the next couple days. RIP David Bowie, gone but DEFINITELY NEVER forgotten.

More to come over the weekend, hope you enjoy them.
Brian suggested this post for today as well, I thought I had a copy of this but wound up borrowing
one off of the Bay.......here's Brian's quick review of this one!
Years ago, I was lucky to come across this on TV. I'd been off current Bowie for a bit, but was drawn in by how engaging he is in this context. Believe me guys, this is worth it just for the between song banter! At one point, when he says "Oh, the stories I could tell you..." You know that he could. Talking about Marc Bolan or The Small Faces or Iggy...it's great to hear. The should've done at least two of these!
I think this is going to have to do it for the Bowie tribute......I was checking, I probably have 50 or so
live shows, and I hate to get into redundancy.......besides there ARE other projects I wish to get to. I'm going to make this a good one, I hope, I good combination of good listening/rarities, I wish I could put up ALL my live/rare Bowie stuff, REALLY I DO, but it's just not in the cards right now......I've put up a good, (I hope) representative bit so far, and I hope this next batch helps you find something you've not heard before, and IF there is a specific concert for which you search LET ME KNOW and I will post it if I have it (I am NOT going to list all of them).......
By the way, Dale Griffin of Mott the Hoople passed away......Mott was one of probably my ten favorite bands, ever, and to lost the great Buffin (a fine, Ringo Starr-styled drummer) sucks, I think I have posted all my Mott stuff a couple times so I don't think I'll do a tribute there, but PLEASE RIP Buffin, the drummer from one of my favorite bands ever to take the stage.
So, in wrapping up this Bowie thing I had to whitle the stack down to a few, a LOT fewer than I had awnated (I mean, WHAT to leave out? none of it is "bad", ALL of it is at very minimum "interesting").....I begin tonight with "Early On", and when they say EARLY on, that's the case......here's a batch of tracks from 1964-67, WAY before most any human being had heard of Mr. Bowie (Jones, at that time at least for part of it)......again, you will enjoy this, it's not "great", by any meanas, but it is great to hear the seeds of the brilliance that would come to bloom in the next decade. For a Bowie "completist", this is a must.
Next I have an album called "Live Ziggy Stardust", it is NOT the motion picture soundtrack I'm not
really sure what it is, actually, I include it because I can't seem to find another copy of it, giing me the feeling that it MIGHT be "rare"? if it's not, forgive me, but, great "Ziggy" era live tracks and a "John I'm Only Dancing"/"Waiting For My Man" encore. A good album, wish I could identify it a bit more accurately.
Well, a little "research" (luck) tells me that the above is Disc Two of a 2 disc set, the other half being "The Alternate Ziggy Stardust", still can't find much info about who put it together, or ehn, or why, or etc, but it's great listening......."Velvet Goldmne" and "Round and Round" don't turn up all that often. Both discs are here, if afnyone has any information about them, spew it........they seem to be FAIRLY hard to find, and are quite good.
Next up, "Somebody Up There Likes Me", which I gather to be a fan-club type release from about 1984, there are a BUNCH of this type of thing around, as you know Bowie's following was/is huge and rabid. Not the rarest bunch of songs in the universe, but "Footstompin" and "Sorrow" don't turn up all that often. Please bear with me, I'm selecting pretty much at random with the stuff I have left, just pretty much grabbing stuff by the handful.
Oh, how I wish I had infinite time and space and etc to do up ALL these live shows.....as you all know Bowie was an unmatched live performer, SOMETIMES it didn't transform all the way when transferred to record, but those of us fortunate enough to see him live know what I'm saying......
At random, I wanted to go with at least one "Ziggy" era live show, I selected a London show from Bowie's "farewell" tour (remember that?), I select it for it's inclusion of "All the Young Dudes" (RIP Buffin, once again), and some guest guitar from Jeff Beck on a rocking "Jean Genie"
Something a little different that I found cruising the web the other day, have never heard this one,
"Gotta Get It Right" it's a kind of muddled rehearsal tape for Marc Bolan's TV show, "Marc", from 1977......a very unique recording, It gave me a chill the first time I listened.....NOT going into heavy rotation for anyone, that I can imagine, but I also can't imagine someone with an interest in Bowie and the entire early 1970's glitter/glam scene not taking interest in this.
I have to stop somewhere, and here is where it will be. The last time I saw Bowie was in 1995, when he teamed with Nine Inch Nails for an incredible tour, the show I saw In Columbus Ohio was staggering, wish I had a copy of it, but instead here is one from St Louis, 10/1/95.......simply stated, this was a historic undertaking and you REALLY need to hear this, I need to go into ZERO detail..And, while DIME-surfing I found another show from the same tour, FLAC file, sorry,(EVERYTHING on DIME is FLAC) but from 9/14 /95 In Hartford Connecticut. Similar setlist, but since I don't have to reup another CD, I'll give ya this one as well.....an audience recording with some unfortunate cuts, notably the opener "Terrible Lie" starts part way in. Can't have it all, can we?
OK.....I have (lots) more, but I am moving on.......There is no limit to the tribute I could pay to David Bowie, much like I felt about Kurt Cobain, if you recall I thought about on the anniversary of Cobain's death posting ALL of the Nirvana shows I have.......but since I have about 200, wheredo you draw the line? I am trying to avoid redundancy, keep things fresh, etc, but I want to tribute the greats, and have no doubts, Bowie was IMO one of the TRUE great artists of our time, or any other time.

Since the next to last track here is "My Death", what more is there to be said. Fans of Bowie, I hope I have done a good job with this, is you have stuff to add PLEASE share it with the rest of his fans.....if you are looking for a specific concert (especially from the Ziggy era) let me know, if I have it, I'll put it up for you......I have a few projects I've tabled due to Bowie's passing, but of course it's the right thing to do. Please comment, please share, please contribute.
One final time: Rest in peace, to one of THE all-time greats. Please give me a minute or two to get the links upped, thanks for some patience!
So, what's the best share blog out there right NOW? Well, sure as fuck it isn't THIS one, but if there jose kortozirkuito, who is a wonderful guy, and his tremendous blog, http://tommentonenlacuadra.blogspot.com.es/........go there. share. contribute. enjoy. His blog is phenominal....he and his team post tons of great stuff, and this project, which he postd this past summer, is not only off the charts, BUT it fits in nicely with some of the cover projects we've tried to post here over the past year or so. BTW, Jose gave his blessing (I asked) for me to repost this incredible project here for you hosers.
was an official vote, my pick would likely go to
OK, the project in question here is "The Other Beatles"......a simple title, yet so much more than that....each and every Beatles album, and a few comps as we will see, done up "cover" style, the way I LLLLLOOOOOVVVVVEEEEE when Brian or Jonder sends me a cover version of a classic rock album (Yeah, I KNOW I should do a few myself, I'll get to it soon)......
The Beatles have, IMO, become somewhat UNDERappreciated in recent times. Some people tend to underestimkate thier incredible influence, which can be summarized easilly.....they were only a band for about 5-6 years......and yet look at the incredible amount of unarguably CLASSIC albums they released....compare them say, to someone (picked randomly) like, say, Rush.......been around since I was in Junior High School, 35-40 years, any "classic' material? well, for my cash, MAYBE "2112", which is a total of ONE, compared to the Beatles short-term/long range classic catalouge.
OK, I don't wish to argue the Beatles' greatness, not the idea at this time.....Jose led off his project with "Please Please Me", as I will as well....what can I say? It was a great album, and the Beatles, for whatever reason, tend to be among the most "coverable" (whatever that means) of all artists....tracks I personally find of interest are The Rajahs "I Saw Her Standing There", the title track by The Score, and a couple of tracks from the Shirelles, whom I loved as a small lad and see no reason not to continue to love today.
Next up came "With the Beatles", an unquestionably great album, the highlight here is (for me at
least) Peggy Lee's smoking "Till There Was You" (always LOVED Peggy Lee), we also get the fairly common "Money" by Barrett Strong, but, hey, we are also talking versions by the Stones, Chuck Berry, Richard Thompson, The Pretenders, and Wreckless Eric, just to name a few, and if THAT lineup isn't enough to entice you, perhaps you have wandered onto this site by accident?
Gonna wrap this one up (and trust me, there is more to come and it is ALL FUCKING GREAT) for tonight with "A Hard Day's Night", worth it alone for Ella Fitzgerlad's "Can't Buy Me Love", and as a true "bonus' we get Bob Dylan and Joe Cocker, not to mention April Wine who slam "Tell Me Why"into the ground
OK, I'm not huge on borrowing from other sites, but Jose is a great friend, has an incredible blog, and THIS project is similar to some of the things we have tried to post here.......if posting this motivates MY lazy ass to actually do the work required to create some of the "cover/comp" albums I've had in the wheelhouse, that'd be great (I've been saying I'm going to do Love's "Forever Changes" forever, and my 18 year old son has been working on the Pixie's "Surfer Rosa" for nearly as long).....I LLLOOOOVVVEEEE these projects, they REALLY (to me) show what a fan REALLY thinks of a band that they love, what possible better tribute could we pay the bands that have shaped our lives?
LOTS more Beatles cover albums to come in the next few days, hope you guys like these, please comment and by all means, let these inspire you to create a cover version of your OWN favorite album(s)......I love these projects, REALLY i do, and I TRULY hope that some of you out there attempt to create something along these lines....I love them, and, judging by the numbers, so do the readership.........love all you guys, really, hope these are fun for you!

I am gonna try to get you guys this entire series posted this week, we'll see, I have a college visit with my son this weekend, and after all, it IS NFL playoff time......but I had a lot of this stuff planned out before Bowie passed, and I HAD to do SOMETHING (as insignificant as it was/is) to commemerate his legacy........but I will try to work double time to get these BRILLIANT beatls covers projects up the end of the week, there are a BUNCH of them to come.....if you try them, and like them (You WILL like them) make certain and drop a note of thanks to the great jose kortozirkuito, possibly the world's current #1 blogger (last I checked, I personally was # 344567789, but moving UP!)
I know I'm in the midst of Jose's Beatles masterpiece, and I know I've posted a TON of Mott shit over
the years, however, while "lookin around", I found a Mott boot that I did not previously have, and out of respect for Dale Griffin (Mott's drummer who passed this week), I cannot think of a better time to post this, it's a new one to me, perhaps it is for you as well......the Beatles stuff will resume Thursday, I've been putting in some serious time on this stuff, but IT IS WORTH IT, you music lovers deserve it......Mott the Hoople was one of my probably 10 or so favorite bands of them all, and when thier drummer passes AND I find a boot I haven't previously heard OR posted, I sort of feel an obligation.....this is from 1970, Fairfield Halls.....I have NOT listened to this one yet, some of thier good, pre-"Dudes" stuff here, and, at least according to the track list, two versions of "Thunderbuck Ram", one of their greatest numbers, not sure if that's a misprint or it's really here twice, also could be a paste together of musltiple shows.
"Cross over shade, like the wise dove,
Who cares not for fame, just for shy love,
Rejoice cause the king ain't lost his throne....
He's still here, you are not alone
You are not alone"
-Mott the Hoople "Hymn For the Dudes"
01 Ohio/02 No Wheels to Ride/03 Rock N Roll Queen/04 Thunderbuck Ram/05 When My Minds's Gone/06 Keep A Knockin/07 You Really Got Me/08 Long Red/09 The Original Mixed Up Kid/10 Walking With a Mountain/11 Laugh at Me/12 Thunderbuck Ram
A small dab of research reveals taht indeed, tracks 9-12 are indeed from another show, 1971, Sweden.
ose Kortozirkuito's (and the rest of his blog all-star team, pleae check http://tommentonenlacuadra.blogspot.com.es/ for other greatness....) we delve back into Part two of "The Other Beatles" cover project with cover version renderings of "Help!", "Rubber Soul", and "Beatles For Sale".......excellent work Jose and friends, and I thank you again for generouslly allowing my re-use of them (numbers for the first part were great!) Oh, please understand some of these are in Spanish, as you know I just LOVE foreign language rock, if you don't, well, sorry....
Couple highlights, let's start with "Beatles For Sale".....Marianne Faithfull doing "I'm a Loser" could be written to order, and David Ball's "I'll Follow the Sun" is interesting enough.....the original "For Sale" had a lot of covers on it anyway, but the album is still faithfully reconstructed, including Wanda Jackson with "Honey Don't" (A Carl Perkins tune that the Beatles covered on "For Sale"), and the Beach Boys take on "Rock N Roll Music" (Chuck Berry)....solid effort.
We get a really mixed up grab bag on "Rubber Soul"...."Michelle" gets an interesting treatment from Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals. The Yonder Mountain String Band has a fine "Think For Yourself". Yellow Matter Custard, a triubte band I assume, deliver a surprising "Nowhere Man".....hell even Nancy Sinatra turns up with "Run For Your Life" (quite good).....
I don't want to talk TOO much about this, this is Jose & friend's project, if you enjoy it, visit his blog and TELL HIM how much, he is a great guy and enjoys hearing compliments about his work. Once there, also, you will find TONS of great stuff.....so great you may never come back here (please no, you can fit us BOTH in!)

(Scott)...I'll take a few minutes break in the Beatles project in order to give my full attention to
Brian's latest creation.....he just sent it a few minutes ago, can't say I am familiar with ANY of this stuff, but my mantra is ANYTHING GOES here, you submit and I'll post (within reason, of course, I had a guy email me yeterday and ask for Def Leppard! Reminds of a classic joke, "What has nine arms and sucks big time?"......"Def Leppard!", funny huh?) Anyway the eccentric type of stuff that others send here is the life blood of what we do, and THIS, no doubt is eccentric. Gotta a bit of a road trip this weekend, so, my family just may get a heavy dose of this stuff. Take it away Brian........
Perhaps the Beatles at thier very apex, (perhaps not, it is argueable) this third part of the "Other
Beatles" covers project covers the fine albums "Sgt. Pepper", "Revolver", and "Magical Mystery Tour".....I commented before so in a minimum of wording, it's amazing how much they changed/grew/evolved in such an amazingly short period of time. Unparalleled, in music history, I think, with the possible exception of the Clash.
Anyway, this is a project constructed by Jose Kortozirkuito and the rest of the Spanish blogger all star team over at the fine blog http://tommentonenlacuadra.blogspot.com. They created these this past summer, I grabbed them and enjoyed them, and I think that enough time has passed that anyone who missed them might catach them here, especially with all of the various cover projects posted here by Brian and Jonder in the last few months (yeah, yeah, I'll get one done myself at some point).....anyway, I like these Beatles efforts, if you do please go to Jose's blog and thank him, he really does great work.
As before I'll touch on a few of the more interesting tracks on each effort, BUT the best (imo) way to hear these is straight through, after listening to the original Beatles effort (that's just me), but however you listen to these they are great.....again, there is some Spanish language material here, I LOVE non-English rock, but I know some don't, but regardless, there is great suff here, a fine fine effort.
OK, first off, we have "The Other Revolver", one of my fave Beatles albums, and the great songs on here are given respectable cover versions....I like the Dakotas take on "Eleanor Rigby", which I think would be a difficult tune to cover, Spanky & Our Gang take on "And Your Bird Can Sing", and Loose Ends gives a fine performance of "Taxman"....one complaint, if you can call it that, is the version here of "She Said She Said", which is a good enough version by the Feelies, but the Black Keys version is my all-time favorite of ANY Beatles cover......I know, I'm free to make my own version should I desire.....just LOVE that Black Keys' version of that one.
The definitive Beatles album for a lot of folks is "Sergeant Pepper", which is presented here in an
"Other" version as well.....due to the production/programming of the original, this one was probably hard to assemble, but the team did a good job, I must say......Phish (of all people) nail "A Day in the Life", Patti Smith turns in a wonderful "Within You Without You", and the Black Crowes'"Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" is MUCH better than I would have imagined.
Finally, we have "The Other Magical Mystery Tour".......very well done, as well, including Cheap Trick's take on the title track, a finhe "Strawberry Fields Forever" from Los Escarabajos, and a FAB "Blue Jay Way" from Lord Sitar, which matches the feel and weirdness of the original.
All of these sets are great.....Jose and friends did a MASTERFUL job, it is my privlege to be able to pass them on to you........again, I offer MEGA-thanks to Jose and the Spanish All-Star Blogging team for these, if I can get them a LITTLE bit more exposure, I'm glad......these rock, and there is more great stuff to come in this series!

Pretty solid download numbers on this series, I hope everyone is going to Jose's blog and giving him his due thanks and credit......I'm just the middle man in this one......but I'd like to hear some comments on these efforts, here on MY site, just because this is such an ambitious undertaking (a lot like Brian's Dylan project a while back, when something takes someone so much work, and it still comes out great, to me, the result is a pure LABOR OF LOVE..........what could be better, for fans of a particular act? And, in this case, The Beatles? Come on, talk to me about these, share your thoughts..........see ya tomorrow with Part 4
Back again with the #4 installment of this killer project, mind you I am taking NO credit for it, as jose kortozirkuito, proprieter of one of the best blogs currently in existence, http://tommentonenlacuadra.blogspot.com.....go there and check out his fine work, that is one great blog.....if you are english speaking like myself, there is some Spanish language stuff there, but for me personally, that is just another plus.....
these creations were from last summer, by the Spanish Blogger All-Star team, headed by my great friend
Well, at this point as we "cover" the career of the beatls, they were on top of the world, could do no wrong, and were cranking out masterworks every few months.......and Jose and friends do a fine job of capturing the feel of these great discs, these are TRIBUTES, but to the degree that (I'll say it again) they are more LABORS OF LOVE.
The second disc of the "Other White Album" is just as great, who could resist Pau Weller taking on "Birthday", Fats Domino's version of "Everybody's Got SOmthing to Hide Except Me and My Monkey" is pretty well known (and GREAT), and, on another "hard one to cover without sounding stupid (many have tried, and done exactly that), Ronnie Peterson & Betzefer take on, respectably well, the infamous "Helter Skelter"
So, we move along to "The Other Yellow Submarine", GOD how I remember seeing the film in the
theater at a very young age......well, never mind......it's a short effort, and hw could anyone resist Echo & the Bunnymen tackling "All You need Is Love"? Or pscyh legends the Gods going at "Hey Bulldog". The Beatles gave the world some incredible material, noone could argue that.

Guys these are gifts to the world from Jose and his amigos.....I thought they were so good that I would try to give these extra exposure....check em out, see what you think, and please tell me, but MIORE importantly tell Jose & Co. what a fine job did here....I LOVE THESE COVERS PROJECTS, please please please please, others (Not you guys, Brian and Jonder), create a version of your favorite albums......I know, it's a lot of work (look who is talking, after all), but the end results generally show how much respect that you have for the tributed artist.
Still more to come, hoping and hoping that you guys like these. I know I do!
This is the final installment of this great set created by a great friend of mine, Jose Kortozirkuito and his wonderful Spanish All-Star Blogging team, although, I will ADD a bonus of afterwards of a bunch of Beatles covers that I found, not going to be organized into albums, sorry, a "Labor of 'Like'", rather than of love perhaps, but as I've told ya before, please go to jose's blog (http://tommentonenlacuadra.blogspot.com) and compliment him on this great effort (and while you are there, check out the other great stuff he has there....by the way, ONCE AGAIN, I offer up a huge "GRACIAS" to Jose and his great team for compiling these, AND, mostly, for giving me permission to repost these on my site.......it's an honor and a privlege to be permited to do so.
Tonight's cover projects focus on the "Let It Be" album, and as well as the two "Past Masters" sets. The quality that has been evident thooughout the first four sets is carried on here, makin this one hell of a job, I've compared it once before to Brian's Dyaln Epic, it's that kind of monumnetal.
"The Other Past Masters Volume 1" of course will have some overlap with some of the other sets, but is is MATERIAL overlap, anyway, NOT artist overlap, in other words, we get SECOND cover versions of some of the Beatles classics. Little Richards' (original) "Long Tall Sally" is a wild classic, The Inmates take on "I'll Get You" isn't too bad, I think the highlight may be the closing "I'm Down" from the Wailers......as always, feel free to comment on these youself, let me know what you like/dislike, like the Dylan set, I have hardly found a track I would call "uninteresting", be they good or bad.
The last entry in Jose's effort (remember, I'm gonna add a sort of "supplement" to this afterwards.), is "Past Masters Volume 2"...Well, I always liked Richie Havens version of "Lady Madonna", and Wilson Pickett had a large hit with his version of "Hey Jude". Al Green who could scorch ANY song he covered, owns "Get Back"....also, oddball entries from Whitesnake (!) and Scorpions (!!)......
Been a great set, had fun reposting it and maybe giving it a bit more exposure....thanks again to Jose and his great team!

Somewhat mis-titled, as BigScott62 had zip to do with creating this Torent, found it on the Bay while posting Jose's amazing series......Just felt this would be a good time to post it, after Jose's classic project, here is a decent big Torrent I found a couple days ago, a BUNCH of random Beatles covers/rarities......I willm be honest, I am postingthis BEFORE hearing it, havent got the chance yet.....just thought it would "fit" while I was reposting Jose's project. Sorrys, if some of the tracks are mislabeled or unidentified, I wanted to get this up and wrap up the Beatles thing......
OK, first of all, this is, unlike Jose's stuff NOT structured in any conceptual manner, merely a hodgepodge I found on the Bay rececntly........a BIG bunch of Beatles covers, some of with which I am familiar, some not as much.......this entire thing is all about THE BEATLES, I remember (seriously) listening to (and loving) thier stuff AT THE AGE OF 2, with help from my Dad who cranked thier stuff 24/7 (Funny sidebar: You would simpl NOT BELIEVE how much my ears and brain HATED Bob Dylan at this same time (as a small child).....when I was little, not only would my Dad fill the days with Beatles/Stones/Doors and the like, I also got a BUCNH of Dylan....I thought hos voice was vomit-inducing......HEY I GUESS you just need to forgive me, I was maybe 2-4 years old.
OK, this Torrent.....like I said, haven't heard it, but I tCome together hink it REALLY fits with the earlier "Other" Beatles project......Big Beatles fans may or may not find a track or three on this that they don't already have.......
Switching gears after this one not sure to where, yet, though.

(Scott)-as often, Brian's submission is so different from the norm that I have little knowledge of
it.....I'm sure it's fab, as was last week's uke post......LOTSA people checked that one out, and if you are a fan of the different stuff that Brian sends us at times, this should be for you....I've only heard a bit of it, but what I've heard is certainly of interest.
I forgot I had this one sitting on my hard drive, it's something of a mess BUT if you've been tickled
by the Beatles covers thing up till now, here are literally all you should need for the rest of your life. I don't even know how many there are, yet, until I list them below in a minute.....there is not structure to this, at all, the creator of this Torrent took several Beatles cover albums ( "Gregorian Chants", Chet Akins "Picking on the Beatles", "Butchering the Beatles", etc, took some other random Beatles covers, and basically threw them into a blender......the result is KIND OF sloppy, BUT, I figure, the order below is the order they appear in the torrent, you can pick and choose what you want to do with them, be it put them into albums or whatever.....I wouldn't have compiled it the way he did, but it IS
damned ambitious, A LOT of stuff here.....just the sequencing (Track's #01 on each of about ten albums are the first tracks, a little later, good old alphabetical order takes over).....some of the tracks as listed do not even have artist listings, if I can I will look them up for you but if I can't I'll at least name the comp it came from and maybe add "unknown" and maybe someone else can track it down.....
There's a hell of a lot of stuff here, MEGA-varying styles as you'll see.......I'd bet one could make a "project" album or two out of these alone, maybe a whole album of versions of "I am the Walrus' or something........this is a HUGE torrent, a SHOCKING ten parts (and NOT FLAC, either), and given the way its presented, I have no way of knowing (track wise) where one part ends and another starts.....I thought about putting these on discs so we could have a "set" with some structure, but, who the hell am I? I'm presenting it howthee guy created it, even if it wasn't the way I might have done it......anyway, just read the track listing, it'll blow your mind.......there is so much stuff here I won't even begin to try to point out highlights/lowlights, just read the track list and your eyes will fall out if Beatles covers happen to be your thing........enjoy and comment, I'll be MOST interested to see how many choose to download all ten parts of this, the "Other Beatles" projects have done quite well....this might just be too lumbering and big, but we'll see.......enjoy, and if you get creative, you can probably find some great ways to sequence these on disc or on IPod or whatever......

Yes, quite a sprawling mess.....if I'd have realized just how much I might have fine tuned it, there are
a lot of tracks duplicated (same song/artist), a few times back-to-back in the batting order, and there is insufficient information on some artists/titles......I'm going to try to hunt down the "unknowns" the best I can.....If you download this whole thing, I'm curious, how do you plan on breaking it up and enjoying it? Myself, I'll probably just keep the tracks I don't have elsewhere and make a multi-disc comp, there IS some DAMN GOOD shit on here, a lot of it in fact, it's just going to be the ultimate hunt and peck mission.......a lot of work, see what you think!
(Scott) it was only a matter of time until someone contributed something with which I am
familiar.......yes, I DO know Peth (Super Furry Animals as well) and recommend this highly. As a silly aside my stepsister (who I haven't talked to in over 25 years and who is an absolute bitch) has the last name of, get this "Peth".......reminds me of what a miserable bitch she is, but, anyway, this is great shit and PLEASE check this out!
Without question, you've all wondered as have I, the eternal question of "what would Iron Maiden
sound like if they were Polish?".....No? You haven't? Well, honestly, neither have I, but the answer is Turbo, likely the greatest of "all" Polish metal bands.......you are gonna have to trust me on this one, these motherfuckers rock the house, and the style of music and vocals REALLY DOES remind me of Maiden......as you know I strive, regularly, for DIFFERENT shit, this is different and it ROCKS like a motherfucker........PLEASE let me know what you think of this, I am giving you my whole Turbo collection, which I THINK may be thier entire discography. The participants names are too hard to type, for me, right now, I'm sure the song titles will be bad enough, but check this out.....love metal? Here is some GOOD SHIT you may not have heard before (non-english language alert)....

OK, not fucking around here, this is some badass fucking shit that maybe the majority of English language speaking metal fans likely are unaware of......nonetheless, I recommend this highly, as you know, I have a weakness for non-English rock, but I am not dicking you around here....this shit rocks fucking hard as hell, and you will be doing yourself a disservice if you pass on it.
I haven't done any non-English rock/metal in a while but Im here to tell ya....Turbo fucking kicked some serious ass.......dont miss this shit.
The albums that I'm currently having issue with are Akustycznie, Dorsosle Dzieci, and Tozsamosc....seriously I don't understnad why they won't "up", I'm gonna keep working on it, I'm pissed because these albums are a significant part of the picture, BUT please check out the rest of these....I'm going to spend sunday trying to figure out what's wrong with these three discs and TRY to get them up as well, but please don't let that detract you from the rest of these.
