Favorite Obscure or Discovered Music Album

Recommended Posts

I've just today found a new band to listen to...... They are called Three Mile Pilot. They are listed as "new prog" on Napster. I haven't listened to enough of them to turn you guys on to any particular tune, just thought I would mention them........

Just hearing this guy! Peter Green..... This is off his first solo album, the whole album is proggy blues instrumentals....

Great stuff..^^^

Heres one album I keep in rotation,    I'm a bit of a ;retro-delic, punk, jazz,blues,country, swing, prog. kind of listener 

so I'll just plunk this out here.

ERYKAH BADU Live 1997.   First song(can't find its entirety on the tube)starts out w/a nice Miles Davis "So What" sample.

It's a nice album,worth listening to if your into jazz/funk/soul.   Yah she's a bit BSC. 😜

Speaking of Tom Waits covers, who else has heard (or actually has) Scarlett Johansson's album Anywhere I Lay My Head?

She did an entire album of Tom Waits covers. And her voice probably doesn't sound like what you're expecting. 

I actually like the album. It's very atmospheric, kind of dark. Many though did not like this album. Or the followup she did with Pete Yorn.

It ain't alright, the hardness of my head

Now, close your eyes and spin around

Say, hard times you could find, it

Ain't the way that you want

But it's still alright

 

Late at night, do you lay around wondering?

Counting all the lines, ain't so funny now

Say, times are hard, you get this far, but it

Ain't the way that you want

I'll be damned if this old man don't

Start to count on his losses

But it's still alright

 

They say you learn a lot out there

How to scorch and burn

Only have to bury your friends

Then you'll find it gets worse

Standing out on the ledge

With no way to get down

You start praying for wings to grow

Oh, baby, just let go

 

I ain't alright, you keep spinning out ahead

It was cold outside when I hit the ground

Said, I could sleep here, forget all the fear

It will take time to grow

Maybe I don't know

 

Hey, tonight if you think about it

Remembering all the times that you pointed out

Say, the glass is clear but all this fear

Starts a-leaving a mark

Your idle hands are all that stands

From your time in the dark

But it's still alright

My dad drove their tour bus for a few months last summer and into the fall.

That's cool.

Your welcome Kurt.  I really like NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series.

Hopefully not Obscure, But Pauline Black and the Selector are always fun.

Saw the "Beat" and most of those ilk back in the day,    BUT this band just brought it!

Ladies and gentlemen introducing "The Selecter" !!!
