I never play individual tracks from THE WALL. Always the whole thing; from start to finish.

 

Well, you get a couple of songs on various live albums as well.

It was only one hour ago It was all so different then Nothing yet has really sunk in Looks like it always did This flesh and bone Is just the way that we are tied in But there's no one home  

"Suddenly, you were gone, from all the lives you left your mark upon"   Oh...shit!    He died on the 7th; seven days short of the 40th anniversary of PERMANENT WAVES.   A

Finally!  We've been waiting on this one a good while.

 

Sidenote: I've always loved the album 20/20 and considered it the turnaround point after a fairly disappointing post-Smile '67-'68 (Friends and Wild Honey have high highs but are mostly just curios to me), and only recently discovered that the fan consensus seems to be that it's not as good as the albums around it.  Sure it's got a bunch of covers and is a bit of a mish-mash, but it's a really fun listen! The Dennis songs are pretty underrated, especially "Be With Me". But yes, obviously Sunflower and Surf's Up are the peak of post-Pet Sounds Beach Boys.

 

EDIT: found the tracklist on a cached site (since removed for some reason)

Yeah, the high points of 20/20 (‘Time To Get Alone’ is another great one) are really about as good as anything they’ve done, even if it’s more hit-or-miss than other releases. But that’s definitely the enigma of The Beach Boys. Who else would put the utterly sublime ‘The Warmth of the Sun’ back-to-back with a cheesy spoken-word skit filler track?

I really like the production on this song.  Oh that actually good songs like would be Top 40 hits.

 

That view with both ladies standing right angled they adapted from ABBA. A little bit it might be in the music as well. Apart from that the look reminded me of the Indigo Girls. But the names I drop here might be a little bit too big for that little piece of music.

I don't like this song at all (even though I love the earlier work of Sergio Mendes and Brasil '66) but who knew?! And it sounds so effortlessly!

 

 

Gotta love Rick Beato (and his channel) though ...

For some reason, I never took the time to properly explore Ten Years After -- even if I know it's up my alley. But I got this solo album by TYA keyboardist Chick Churchill from 1973, featuring a starstudded cast of performers (obviously, the Supertramp connection -- Rick plays drums and Roger guitars and bass -- was what got me to get it in the first place). Great, dreamy blues prog.

Recently gave Roger Daltrey and Wilko Johnson's 2014 collab album 'Going Back Home' a go ... good stuff if you're in the mood for some rockin' R 'n' B (as in what that used to mean, not its dispiriting more recent use to describe programmed autotuned robot farts). At 35 minutes, it's a pretty short 'n' sharp listen.
