Broken Spine Producions BSP06 2012
Nadja's "rock" album featuring Mac McNeilly of The Jesus Lizard on drums.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers [09:01]
"Even the Losers"
Damn the Torpedoes
Backstreet Records MCA-5105 1979
Long time Vinyl-O-Matic listeners will know tha this is the first album Your Old Pal Will ever purchased with his own money. And that "Even the Losers" has always been my go-to track.
Gamelan Orchestra [13:35]
Dancers of Bali
Columbia Masterworks ML 4618 1952
A great collection of gamelan pieces from the village of Pliatan. Another one from the Djerassi Foundation that somehow made it into my collection.
"Wild and Blue"
Thrill Jockey Records thrill 040 1997
Originally released as a CD in 1991, this 1997 Thrill Jockey release does a great job capturing the band.
Marianne Faithfull [20:08]
"For Beauty's Sake"
Island Records ILPS 9648 1981
A number penned with Steve Winwood. One could say that For Beauty's Sake was the production approach on this watered-down follow up to Broken English.
The Human League [23:38]
"The Things that Dream Are Made Of"
A&M Records/Virgin SP-4892 1982
Anyone here like The Human League?
The Folk Implosion [28:58]
Dare to Be Surprised
Communion Label COMM 45 1997
David Bazan [33:23]
"Happy Xmas (War Is Over)"
Dark Sacred Night
Suicide Squeeze S150 2016
Well, if you have to visit Christmas in July, this seems like the song to play.
Pink Floyd [36:05]
The Dark Side of the Moon
Harvest SMAS-11163 1973
Insert rant about classic rock radio ruining so much music through incessant repetition.
Tom Jones [39:00]
"Dime Queen of Nevada"
Mercury SRM-1-4010 1981
If you think the cover of this album is creepy, you should see the back cover. Yikes!
Dave Mason [43:07]
Columbia PC 33096 1974
I'm a little uncomfortable with the lyrics of this song. If every woman is like her, then she's like every woman... and... I... what?
David Gilmour [46:08]
"There's No Way Out of Here"
CBS/Sony 25AP 1077 1978
Hey, turns out I have the Japanese pressing of this album. The wonders of absorbing other folks' collections.
"Beauty and the Beast"
The Day Everything Became Nothing
Alternative Tentacles VIRUS 62 1988
Awesome kooky stuff from North of the Border.
Sonic Youth [55:02]
Enigma Records/Blast First 7 75403-1 1988
I'll go with Lee's tracks all day long on this album. So good.
Music behind the DJ: "Clouseau's Theme" by Henry Mancini
