    by the time I began listening to the radio on my own, SPLHCB, MMT were already a couple years past being released so pretty much everything RS and earlier is still not well known to me.

    We just finished watching the DVD from one of my favorite groups, Mingo Fishtrap's "Live at the Granada". I managed to catch their live show during the last tour that "Big Rog" was still with them.

    I remember them! You're Gonna Miss Me was probably their top hit. One of the first bands to term their music "psychedelic."



    For those not familiar with western culture, many tall buildings do not have floors listed as the thirteenth, nor have elevators with 13th floor buttons. This is due to the fear of the number 13 and superstitious beliefs.

    This album, by my mentor, Charlie Karp, has some outstanding tunes on it.

    I love music above everything else in life, I spend most of my free time messing around with guitars or searching for music that I haven't heard before...

    Sérgio, you and I must share some of the same wavelength! Camel was an awesome group, sometimes a little *too* prog-rock for me, but their music was intelligent and powerful. I haven't thought about them in thirty years! One of the band members, Kit Watkins, went on to a solo career in the ambient/techno realm, and remains one of my favorite artists in that genre.

    That is a perfect description of how I feel about Camel!

    Today I’ve been listening to Procol Harum and Badfinger, two great and under appreciated bands.

    I’ve been enjoying Madeleine Peyroux‘s “Careless Love” album and always think she has a very Billie Holiday vibe about her. Back in 2006 my wife and I were having dinner in a St Johns Newfoundland restaurant and surprised our waitress when I recognized they were playing that album. She said we were the first people who ever knew who that was. It was funny at that time.

    No. They were a band on their own whom McCartney signed to Apple. They did have a big hit with the McCartney-penned “Cone and Get It”. I believe both McCartney and Harrison produced them here and there, but they were a band before Apple.

    I just listened to Rubber Soul (2009 remastered version) on my vintage Pioneer stereo through the Advent speakers. "Wow" hardly does it justice. I even picked up my strat and played along, ordered the song book for it (and Abbey Road.)

    Re: The Official TFF "what are you listening to?" thread

    I can't imagine hearing that for the first time in 1965. Too early for me, I was 7 years old and not in charge of my music selection. I was lucky to see the Beatles debut on the Ed Sullivan show because it was school vacation week and for some strange reason we never got to watch that show again. So I didn't get to see The Who, The Rolling Stones, The Doors et al. Mostly because it was on Sunday nights after my bedtime and probably in reruns during the summer months but it also could have been my parents trying to prevent us from seeing any more of that heathen rock'n'roll music

    I was a Beatles fan from the moment I first heard them. I was ten-eleven years old, living in Thailand. Elvis was the hot commodity, even there. Then along comes "She Loves You, Yeah, yeah, yeah," and I was hooked. "I Saw Her Standing There," "It Won't Be Long," "All My Loving," "Please Please Me," all had me singing and Beatlemania was under way.

    I never saw them in concert, but I did see them. They were touring Asia and had a brief layover in Bangkok. A bunch of school kids went to the airport, and John, Paul and George made an appearance at the airplane doorway (hatch?). Don't know what happened to Ringo.

    I’ve been listening to McCartney’s solo stuff of the last ten years or so. Man there are some under appreciated gems on those albums.
