    Ummmm...Isn't it Tuesday?

    Chime in. Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

    New to me:
    Yes - Relayer
    Not necessarily my first choice in Yes albums, but I sense this is 'grower' material. Especially the oft-mentioned Gates of Delerium. And hey, for $2.97, who can say no?

    Doves - Some Cities
    First couple of listens...meh. But after that, growing by leaps and bounds. Me likey. Anyone else have this experience with it?

    Also spun:
    Interpol - Turn On the Bright Lights
    Wilco - Kicking Television (disc 1)
    The Bravery
    My Morning Jacket - Z
    Dire Straits - Making Movies
    Beth Orton - Daybreaker
    Santana - Abraxas
    Stevie Ray Vaughn compilation
    PT - Deadwing

    That's most of what I can remember. How 'bout you?

    Tuesday...indeed, indeed.

    Luke Doucet - Broken - Yes, I'm still spinning this one.
    Hot Hot Heat - Elevator - Hmmm, even my husband likes this one and he doesn't like much of what I listen to these days.
    Ray LaMontagne - Trouble
    Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlanticism

    There's some other stuff that I can't think of right now and I don't have time to sit around trying to remember or I'm going to be late for Curling!

    That's right. I'm a proud Canadian and I actually go Curling.

    Typical male pig.

    Haven't heard "Pressure On Julian" in ages. Makes me nostalgic for the mid-90's. Might have to spin Rubbish tonight.

    Neal Morse - ?

    Wall of Voodoo - Dark Continent (thanks Poontang Paiva)

    The Call - Reconciled - awesome!

    Steely Dan - Gaucho. Good rekkid for sure.

    Stan Ridgway - Anatomy. Another great piece of toonage.

    Kerry Livgren - One of several possible musics - a instrumental work, kind of weird, ok, not my fave KL by any stretch.

    Gary Numan - The Skin Mechanic - vinyl - pretty good stuff on IRS vinyl.

    A bootleg cdr of Rush. Actually very very good.

    U2 Zoo TV bootleg, also good quality, pretty good.

    Just got in the mail today a sealed lp copy of Split Enz - Time and Tide. Yummy.

    Regards,

    Dave

    Yummmm, just got home from work and popped the top on a bottle of Anchor Steam. Now that's what I'm talking about! Good beer. Fired up the stereo and got some exotic sounds of Voyager One lighting up the night air. Guess the rest is in my signature. Kind of a pitiful Tunesday turnout today Mr MidFi. Might be past time to change those deodorant pads? Don't they say 3 months or 3000 miles?

    Glad to see Luke on your heavy rotation list. Everyone should hear this album. I wonder what Mr. Swishy will think of it...a complimentary copy went out to him too as a little favour for introducing me to Ray LaMontagne a while back.

    Nice list! Not too many Focus fans around anymore. They have such a unique sound with way more passion, feeling and talent than mos recent years. The rest is up my alley also.

    I really like Focus III a lot. Sort of a proggy fusion jam band feel with a lot more grit than, say, Gong or Van Der Graaf Generator. These were remastered by the original producer too. They sound good.

    I was listening to Hamberger Concerto from 1974 just last week. Not a bad effort. The first two minutes of the 20+ minute Concerto sounds like The Flower Kings, believe it or not (or at least Stolt on guitar).

    Neil Young 'Prarie Wind'
    Jethro Tull 'Benefit'

    Black Sabbath 'Paranoid'
    Joe Bonnemassa 'so its like that'
    Allman Brothers 'A decade of hits'
    Toad the Wet sprocket 'handmade best of' -excellant band with a terrible name.Copies gladly furnished, just shoot a pm.
    Anathema 'a fine day to exit'
    Also bought some tunes in Colo- Bunny Wailers 'blackheart man', Isreal Vibration 'same song' and JTull's 'Stand up' - hey it's better than picking up T-Shirts.

    My fav was allways Dutchmasters. A few years ago there was a dude from Holland that I traded comps with here. He made me a Focus comp (minus Hocus Pocus at my request) from all scandanavian released material and remasters. Pretty cool, a comp of a band from Holland right from Holland.

    I'd be happy to share it with anyone.

    Hey just been listening to some samples since you two have been talking about him recently and that album sounds very nice, similar to Joe Henry in parts (but a happier Joe Henry!) Chalk that one up for the wishlist

    Yeah, it is a nice album. I'm not quite as enamored as FA, but I tend to prefer a bit more eclecticism in the lyrical themes, and Luke doesn't really get very freaky. And sometimes the themes and lyrics get a bit repetitious, which is a drawback as the music is quite diverse. And some of the songs do sound a little too happy for the broken hearted lyrical theme and the depth that is present in the opening two songs. But overall, quality music from a talented guy. Not at the Joe Henry level for me, but Joe's always occupied a special place because the music and the lyrics take me to new places. Luke takes me to places I've mostly already been to before, but he does it very well. Different places and styles.

    See, that might just be the problem. Rotating them from pit to pit isn't gonna cut it! But it looks like I spoke too soon anyway. You got some good Tunesday action this week afterall Mr MidFi. Just a slow starter.

    Maybe I'd be less enamored if I had heard some Joe Henry to compare it to. Mike, check your PMs.

    Hehehe, well ya know, that's just a personal observation. You may not like him nearly as much as I do. Not many people do

    Our long lost young buddy Rae did one of the coolest reviews of his Scar album that I had the good fortune of reading. He's got a way ... http://archive.audioreview.com/10/0EEA8C9F.php

    That one has some jazz feel that you may not like that much. Fuse is probably the best overall to get a taste. He's been featured on a lot of comps around here, but most of them were probably flying around before your time. Mike's a pretty big fan so you guys can probably work something out. He didn't come to my mind listening to Luke, but now that Mike mentioned it, maybe he's right. Different music style though. He's got more of a Gram Parsons influence in his music, but as of the last few years, he's moved into some pretty novel territory, mashing his country roots with jazz and pop and soul and rock in ways that aren't often done nearly so well. He's become an accomplished producer along the way too.
