What are you listening to ?

  • hey folks,
    i hope that everybody is having a lovely day. i thought that i'd take a moment and tell some of you what other's of you already know... Jeff Kollman rocks ! I've bought a couple of his albums recently and have really enjoyed the stuff. I'm listening to "Guitar Screams Live" a good bit right now and have made a misc. cd w/ some of the cuts on there such as "clap hands", "fool for you stockings" , "shredding skin" and"creepy spider". i also recently got Cosmosquad "live at the Baked Potato" and that is very good as well. when i wear these two out, i see that Jeff has a few more available on i-tunes, and i'll pick another one to jam to next. the song "oops i spilled my beer" from jeff and chad's new band, the meatbats is also very cool.
    also something of interest to folks here i would think is Joe Lynn Turner. I just bought his "Holy Man" cd and have really been enjoying that as well.
    so, brothers and sisters, while we await the arrival of our beloved FUNK, i just thought i'd throw a few other things out there for your consideration. so that's what i've been listening to, what about you ?

  • I've really been enjoying the new album from Dokken, "Lightning Strikes Again". The current line-up has really come into its own, and guitarist Jon Levin has really managed to recapture some of their classic sound.

    Otherwise, I'll probably pick up the new Whitesnake today - it's getting good reviews - and then, of course, Glenn's new one is coming soon!


  • JLT's Holy Man is superb, purplemusic :thumbup:

    I'm listening to Gabriella Cilmi's Lessons To Be Learned. I first heard her voice on an advert on UK television and actually saw her sing live yesterday on a TV programme. Absolutely in love with her voice - and she's only 16!! Stunning, Italian, wicked voice and lives in Melbourne. Sigh! I hate her already :p

  • I've been on an old-school thrash/speed metal kick lately, so I've been spinning a few golden oldies by the likes of Exodus, Metal Church, Possessed, Vio-lence, Death Angel and Overkill.

    I've also been soaking in the extremely satisfying new Asia album 'Phoenix'. Even after all these years, John Wetton continues to be a revelation.

    The new Bruce Springsteen album 'Magic' is more appealing to me than any of his other albums in recent (and hell, not so recent) memory. I heard it playing overhead at my local record haunt, and I walked right over to the display and picked up a copy. Well worth checking out. It will get a lot of play this summer.

    And the new Whitesnake is a riffalicious piece of hard blues rock that, so far, is pretty good.


  • The new Whitesnake, Outside by David Bowie (I'd almost forgotten how great this album was)and the remastered version of The Prison by Michael Nesmith.

  • The Past few days been listening to the following cd's,
    Phenomena-Psycho Fantasy-

  • Whitesnake "Good to Be Bad"
    Asia "Phoenix"
    Hughes Thrall - reissue
    Hayes Carll "Trouble in Mind"

    Just now (today) got the Robin George/Hughes- much better than the demos!

  • I don't have a CD player at home but I do have one in the car which is where my listening is done these days. I have been immersing myself in The Move and the 40th Anniversary reissues of their catalog. The 2 CD release of their debut is amazing; these guys could do anything from pure pop to doo wop to psychedelia and they even found the original stereo mixes and a boatload of extras. "Shazam", their second LP is fabulous; killer originals and imaginative cover material make for a great listen. "Message From The Country" their final LP sees Roy Wood, Jeff Lynne and Bev Bevan swinging from gritty rhythm and blues to 50's pastiches to tunes that echo John Lennon and probably influenced Todd Rundgren just a bit!

    Other selections that have gotten major airtime on the road;

    Frank Marino - From The Hip
    Pete Townshend - Gold
    Robin Trower and Jack Bruce - Seven Moons
    Govt Mule - High And Mighty
    Govt Mule - Mighty High...some of the reggae grooves on this will cave in your head!
    Free - Live
    Ann Wilson - Hope And Glory
    Glenn Hughes - Live In Australia
    Pat Travers - Power Trio 2
    Mountain - Over The Top

    Yours In The Funk

  • Bill, I just caught Gov't Mule not too long ago, supporting the "High N Mighty" album. Great show, and I downloaded the particular concert I was at off their website, complete with liner notes and superb sound quality. Great album, great band. And yes, the remix album is a hoot!

    Unring that bell...

  • Paul Gilbert's "Acoustic Samurai" is playing right now. Yesterday was a few Glen Phillips (of Toad the Wet Sprocket), Nickle Creek, and Ike Reilly cds that arrived in the mail that day; Wednesday was the new King's X, which was preceeded by a few days of listening to entire King's X collection.

    One note on Glen Phillips - I never see his name misspelled as "Glenn". Maybe Hughes should just drop the second "n" in his first name since nobody seems to ever get it right anyway! (Of course, that doesn't help his last name, which will continue to be butchered. How does a simple name like "Glenn Hughes" get misspelled so often???)
