    Cool Tuesday Second Thread

    Well, I didn't get the first Tuesday thread on the new forum, I'll try for the second! Besides, I have to go out and can't wait.

    Haydn, Symphony no. 22 “The Philosopher.” Ward, Northern Chamber Orchestra. Naxos 8.550724. I didn’t listen to nos. 29 & 60 this time.

    Wagner, Siegfried Idyll; Brahms, Serenade no. 1. Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields Chamber Ensemble. Philips 426 298-2.

    Chopin, Etudes. John Browning, piano. RCA 60131-2-RV.

    Walton, Symphony no. 1, Variations on a Theme by Hindemith. Vernon Handley, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. EMI CDC 74966712.

    Haydn, The Seasons. Heather Harper, soprano; Ryland Davies, tenor; John Shirley-Quirk, baritone; Sir Colin Davis, BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Philips 289 464 034-2.

    Deems Taylor, Through the Looking Glass; Charles T. Griffes, The Pleasure Dome of Kubla Khan, The White Peacock, Poem for Flute and Orchestra, Bacchanale. Schwarz, Seattle Symphony. Delos DE 3099.

    Mendelssohn, Symphonies nos. 3 and 4 (Scottish and Italian). Blomstedt, San Francisco Symphony. London D 140143.

    Mozart, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Posthorn Serenade. Mackerras, Prague Chamber Orchestra. Telarc CD-80108.

    Mussorgsky (arranged by Stokowski), Pictures at an Exhibition; Scriabin, Poem of Ecstasy; Stravinsky, Pastorale, Firebird Suite. Leopold Stokowski, various orchestras. London, 443 898-2. The sound is not great, but the performance of the Firebird Suite is the best ever, I think.

    Praetorius, Dances from Terpsichore. Westra nos Pijpare. Naxos 8.553865.

    Chominciamento di gioia. Ensemble Unicorn. Naxos 8.553131.

    Dvorak, String Quartets nos. 8 and 11. Vlach Quartet Prague. Naxos 8.553372.

    Optional Subject

    Love that Walton 1st, it's been a few years since I've spun it. I have the Telarc recording with Andre Previn & the Royal Philharmonic.. they also do wonderful versions of the Crown Imperial and Orb & Sceptre marches.. the Orb & Sceptre is one of my favorite orchestral pieces ever, it's almost jazzy in parts, and those Telarc bass drums just shake the room.. I once heard this disc demonstrated in one of the Telarc mixing rooms.. pretty amazing.

    anyway, as for my stuff:

    Radiohead - Hail to the Thief
    Killing Joke - Killing Joke
    Deftones - Deftones
    Thursday - War All The Time
    Death In Vegas - Scorpio Rising
    Manitoba - Up In Flames

    UnleasHell's SHAM Vol. 1
    Mr. MidFi's Meta Comp #4

    If being afraid is a crime we'll hang side-by-side,
    at the swingin' party down the line..

    cd stuff

    Amalgamated Sons of Rest, Will Oldham, Jason Molina, and Alasdair Roberts on an EP from last year. AMG wasn't thrilled with it, but I like it.
    Moses Guest, S/T- double cd of jam-band influenced
    Decline of British Seapower, a late-coming possible addition to my best-of-the-year list.
    Shins, Chutes Too Narrow, not bad, but......

    and more.

    Different things this week…

    Duke Ellington: Ebony Rhapsody
    A collection of tracks featuring an assortment of vocalists. Seems like a decent place to start for a guy that’s just got a giant catalog to explore.

    Sigur Ros: () and the one I can’t spell.
    Perfect music to watch the snow falling.

    Mum – Finally We Are No One
    See above.

    Angie Stone – Black Diamond
    You really don’t have to go all that far back to find some good soulful R&B out there. Sounds a bit like Roberta Flack.

    Tosca: Dehli 9
    Nice, laid back grooves. Beautiful packaging as well and a second CD of ambient stuff to help you drift off.

    Love & Rockets: Express and Earth, Sun, Moon
    Express picks me up, Earth, Sun, Moon calms me down.

    Echo and the Bunnymen: Ocean Rain
    My personal favorite from these guys. I’ve always really liked the song Crystal Days.

    Jesus and Mary Chain: Darklands
    This one has aged well. Side one is incredible. One of those where the CD just doesn’t sound right. Find the vinyl if you have a turntable.

    Dead Kennedys: Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables
    Because sometimes I forget what a great album this is. Pulled out the Too Drunk to Fcuk 12” while I was at it.

    Lou Reed: Perfect Night
    Good live disc with nice sound as well. Some of the tunes seem slowed down. Nice to hear The Kids, a personal favorite of mine. I just wish he’d let us forget about the travesty that is The Original Rapper. With a better set list, this could have been stellar.

    Massive Attack: 100th Window
    Still digging it.

    Also listened to some comps, Stone’s year enders from 2002, Audiobill’s 73-74 comp, and a 2003 comp of mine that I’m gonna change before offering. Other stuff too, of course. Some more Jazz stuff, some Black Sabbath, a bit of Spiritualized, Maxwell and more...

    Lots of time in the car this past week. Still listening to things I recently purchased and posted on, but here are some new ones:

    Gov't Mule: The Deepest End (The CDs crank, especially Blindman in the Dark, and I'm thinking of throwing a party just to show off the DVD)

    My Morning Jacket: It Still Moves (This could get long term listening time...)

    Deathcab for Cutie: We have the Facts... (New purchase for me. Now looking at Transatlanticism)

    Oingo Boingo: Only a Lad

    The Perfect Circle: Thirteenth Step

    Phantom Planet : The Guest (POS, bound for a trade-in)

    Bob Mould: Workbook

    Buncha crap



    That UK album is totally cool 70s synth-prog.

    The Keneally album is a monster.

    That Tony Levin disc is amazing 21st century fusion.

    Lotsa great crap in that jpg.

    New this week at the Clark house

    Mile Davis-Kinda Blue (library) One of the many (I'm sure) remasters. Out of all the jazz discs I've listened to at this point, this one is far and away the best. It's not like I'm going to turn into an affecionado but I can see why some people would really enjoy this.

    Miss Kittin-Radio Caroline vol.1. Not what I was expecting at all. this is a comp of the music she enjoys with some occasional narrative. Not at all the hard driving electroclash experience I was anticipating. Very good collection of songs, not quite ambient, some very trancey. Good electronica overall.

    Richard X Presents His X-Factor vol1. Like many of the similar albums I've bought this year it's widely varied. I prefer the clashy numbers which accounts for about a third of the CD. The rest are what I would call pure dance numbers but for the most part I tend to enjoy this more than say what BT would do. The music seems better overall, probably just due to heavier, more intense synth action.

    Jar's "Attack Electronics" comp. Thank you very much Jar, this is a lot of fun to listen to. I appreciate your sending it.

    and of course many asst.cd's pulled off the shelf.

    Here's to a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving.

    I love that tune! I included it on my 'Winter Fades' comp from a few years ago and I think it fits perfectly.

    I've been listening to Mark Sandman since the first Treat Her Right LP and especially like 'Picture of the Future' and 'Hank'. Sad to say I never caught THR or Morphine live either.

    The first movement is quite spectacular, isn't it? ---although I imagine the Telarc recording has a bigger bass drum!

    Not much to report, but here's what's what,

    The Czars - Before...But Longer and The Ugly People Vs. the Beautiful People - Good stuff!

    CKY - Infiltrate Destroy Rebuild - I like this album, especially "Escape from Hellview". I guess these guys are a skate band, but this album is pretty much straight-up heavy metal.

    AFI - Sing the Sorrow - Love this album so far. It has some hard-core moments, but there's also some melody, plus I'm a sucker for a Butch Vig production.

    John
