    Great record, but not one I reach for as often as the ones I mentioned above.

    "No Pussyfooting" changed the way I listen to music. I was ravenous in high school for 'contemporary composers'. I ate up Stockhausen, Cage, Pierre Schaeffer, even Zappa and the like. Nothing twisted my mind, slowed me down and, essentially, forced me to listen like Fripp & Eno.

    "...Bush Of Ghosts" was, indeed, groundbreaking. These days I'm more likely to reach for Fela Kuti as is, I suspect, Mr. jazzfood.

    A. Tutuola's writing is a trip into another world.

    My Life in the Bush of Ghosts-Amos Tutuola
    see, also, The Palm Wine Drinkard and his Dead Palm-Wine Tapster in the Dead's Town

    recently, re-released is the original Eno/Hassell collaboration

    Hassell argues with Eno as to the "ownership" of the Fourth World construction

    Hassell's Dream Theory in Malaya is a strong album

    There are basically four different Eno eras/arrangements to seek out: Eno as vocal artist, Eno as ambient artist, Eno as collaborator and Eno as producer, all resulting in a variety of masterpieces. His first four solo vocal albums are the best place to start for vocals. For ambient, "Music for Airports," "On Land," "Discreet Music" or even one of his recent ambient albums (like "Lux"). For collaborations, his music with Bowie (which he did not produce), "Bush of Ghosts," Fripp, John Cale (Cale's mid'70s solo albums or the later, poppier "Wrong Way Up"), certainly "Apollo," with Daniel Lanois and his brother Roger. For production, Talking Heads, U2's "Unforgettable Fire" and "Zooropa," James "Laid" (underrated beauty). Of course, it's hard to go wrong with nearly everything he's on. Great stuff with everyone from Robert Wyatt to James.

    Don't forget you can also download and loop the six-second start-up music-sound of the Windows 95 operating system, "The Microsoft Sound" ad infinitum. And wonder where his money comes from.

    I have always loved this arrangement. Only today did I learn it was arranged by Leroy Anderson, whose original recording is here:



    I have long heard this arrangement, slightly shortened by 13 seconds, presented by the Boston Pops conducted by Arthur Fiedler:

    For the record, Robert Plant is pretty much an old fart these days. I am always shocked at the age of the people attending shows at City Winery of bands/acts that were popular in the 70's/80's (Los Lobos was a recent one). I keep telling myself I can't possibly be that old.

    Since old farts are doing what they do: I came out from the east cast & visited Wax Trax, dropped off a cassette of what I was working with. They were kind enough to put it on the system before http://www.roir-usa.com/artists/ picked it up for International distribution. We managed to work with almost everybody on the No New York album kinda thanks to them (good luck trying to play with Mars).

    I was re-awakened to the Grateful Dead on my recent trip to Denver (must have been the peacefull people and vibes I encountered)- been listening to alot lately -

    show thats stuck in my cars cd player now- 3/29/90 - Nassau Coliseum - The Branford Marsalis show...

    Some funny observations from Branford at setbreak.
    8. “Dark Star” led to some interesting interactions with Deadheads

    “They said ‘Hey, let’s play ‘Dark Star’ – we hadn’t played that in a while.’ I was like ‘Oh, I don’t know the song.’ They said ‘Oh, you’ll love it. It’s right up your alley.’ They started playing the song and the audience went absolutely ape s–t. They went bananas. I’m looking at them going bananas and I’m going “OK, this must be an anthem.” Then I got all these telephone calls on my private number [from] Dead Heads. The phone would ring and I said ‘How’d you get this number?’ and they’d say ‘Don’t worry about it, we’re harmless, we just love the music.’ Couple of times a week I’d get phone calls. It was really refreshing in a way.

    gotta love it.

    Four in a row from the man who saved rock 'n roll from the likes of Paul Anka, Fabian, Frankie Avalon and others. The Killer, Jerry Lee Lewis, was on top of his game when he went to England accompanied by his 13-year old wife Myra, who was also his cousin. English press find out...rock career over. These four songs are from Sun Records' heyday in 1957-58.
