Anbuis, I love your CD bookshelf. I have a CD rack that holds 500, but I officially overfilled it this last week and am looking for new stuff. Where'd you get yours?

Honestly, i have no idea. my best friend got it for me for xmas a few years ago. he said it cost him a pretty penny and the way its designed is pretty sturdy so i believe him. either way, you can find cheaper ones like Hogan said. the thing is, i need another one of these for the rest of my cds so i might have to ask him where he got it. :)

I saw Brecker 3 or 4 years ago when he came to Boulder. Put on a clinic and then a KILLER concert. Did this amazing solo, stopped, walked over to the mic in the middle of it gasping for air and said, "How do you people deal with this altitude?!?" then continued to play stuff that would make mortals cry.

Incredible.

Got in my car this am, after Mrs Dog had driven it for the weekend, popped the cd out - new moon daughter / cassandra wilson - couldn't find the cd case for it. Gave up looking, and fished out Weld/ neil young. Opened it up and found Strauss's greatest hits.

well for all the hip hop fans, i just got TI, Nas, DIplomats, Saigon mistape, and the new John Legend. i heard 5 songs from TI and it sounds realy good. i havent listend to Nas or Diplomats yet. The Saigon one i got cuz he had so much buzz and this mixtape got a lot of good reviews, its called Warning Shots, and i cant believe they had it at the best buy i went to. the John LEgend one is an R&B one and it ranks up there with Anthony Hamilton's. GReat CD and i recomend it.

Space is always a problem for the collector.

I tend to perfer the corner cabinets that have the fold out doors for that very reason...but it doesn't make for much displaywise...I'd like to do a wall of racks but then there's the problem of box sets (too large for that) digipaks (too fragile for normal storage) keeping signed stuff seperate and so on and so on...
I've moved all my CDs into slimline cases. Makes it a little tougher to pick the exact album I want to hear, but good organization takes care of most of that. It cut my storage area in half!

My buddy's a die-hard Nirvana fan so he got the box set the first day it came out. I was watching his DVD that came with it, and if you haven't seen it, get it. They do a cover of "Seasons In The Sun" at the end where Grohl plays bass, Novaselic plays guitar and Cobain plays drums while singing. None of them look comfortable AT ALL. It's hilarious.

This is a good idea and I tend to do this with stuff released in digipaks (and lemme state for the record just how much I hate, Hate, HATE DIGIPAKS...I wish the industry would just release stuff in jewel or slimcases only...that fragile cardboard paper garbage has got to go!!).

For me however, storage with a library look/feel is what I perfer.....I love the fold out cabinets from Sauder (which act as great speaker stands as well), but they discontinued the tall ones I see and now the new line is much shorter and as a result, doesn't hold as much.

Nothing (other than the sound of a steel guitar) drives me nuts quicker than the sound of a sitar...I hate that shat with a passion.

I've delved deeper into the Get Hip label and it's stable of garage bands...mainly based in western PA and Ohio, these local level bands kick some serious azz.....three chords, sloppy, full of feedback and attitude...they are right up my alley as far as what I look for in a rock band these days....great, great stuff.......namely The Cynics, ever since I saw them in December, I've been buying everything I could from them and it has been money very well spent........I highly recommend them.

There was some expansion on where he wanted to go, mostly on teh 2nd disc. I learned it was an album, and not any real standout songs. Like both discs make the whole album. There was some also new uses of melody and he tried to get away from some of his bread & butter that he knew he could use and just make cash. This was more about the effort, the principal, he made it for himself IMO.

OK, a lot of NIN fans here so I should ask this. First of all, I'm not a big NIN fan. I respect them, but don't DIG their stuff. That said, "The Downward Spiral" was voted one of EQ magazines "Top 10 Recordings". Should I spend the extra and get the double CD set or just get the original release? Normally, I'd shy away from the double because if I'm not a die-hard, I wouldn't dig the demos, etc.. That said, I heard it was released in SACD in the double set and that would be worth it to me.

LONG BLACK VEIL
(Marijohn Wilkin - Danny Dill)

'59 Cedarwood Publishing



Ten years ago on a cold dark night someone was killed neath the town hall lights

There were few at the scene but they all agreed

That the slayer who ran looked a lot like me

She walks these hills in a long black veil she visits my grave when the night winds wail

Nobody knows nobody sees nobody knows but me



The judge said son what is your alibi

If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die

I spoke not a word though it meant my life

I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife

Now the scaffold was high and eternity near

She stood in the crowd and shed not a tear

But sometimes at night when the cold wind moans

In a long black veil she cries o'er my bones

She walks these hills...



THE WALL
(Harlan Howard)

'59 Cedarwood Publishing



There's a lot of strange men in cell Block 10 but the strangest of them all

Was a friend of mine who spent his time starin' at the wall starin' at wall

As he looked at the wall so strange and tall you could hear him softly curse

Nobody at all ever climbed that wall but I'm gonna be the first I'm gonna be the first

Well the warden walked by and said son don't try I'd hate to see you fall

For there ain't no doubt they'll carry you out

If you ever touch that wall If you ever touch that wall

Well the years gone by since he made his try but I can still recall

How hard he tried and the way he died

But he never made that wall never made that wall

Well there's never been a man ever shook this can but I know a man who tried

The newspapers called it a jailbreak plan but I know it was suicide I know it was suicide

COCAINE BLUES
(T.J. Arnall)

'58 Unichappell Music



Early one mornin' while makin' the rounds

I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my woman down

I went right home and I went to bed I stuck that lovin' 44 beneath my head

Got up next mornin' and I grabbed that gun took a shot of cocaine and away I run

Made a good run but I run too slow they overtook me down in Juarez Mexico

Late in the hot joints takin' the pills in walked the sheriff from Jericho Hill

He said Willy Lee your name is not Jack Brown

You're the dirty heck that shot your woman down

Said yes oh yes my name is Willy Lee if you've got the warrant just aread it to me

Shot her down because she made me sore

I thought I was her daddy but she had five more

When I was arrested I was dressed in black

They put me on a train and they took me back

Had no friend for to go my bail they slapped my dried up carcass in that country jail

Early next mornin' bout a half past nine I spied the sheriff coming down the line

Ah and he coughed as he cleared his throat

He said come on you dirty heck into that district court

Into the courtroom my trial began where I was handled by twelve honest men

Just before the jury started out I saw the little judge commence to look about

In about five minutes in walked the man holding the verdict in his right hand

The verdict read in the first degree I hollered Lowdy Lowdy have a mercy on me

The judge he smiled as he picked up his ben 99 years in the Folsom pen

99 years underneath that ground I can't forget the day I shot that bad bitch down

Come on you've gotta listen unto me lay off that whiskey and let that cocaine be

FOLSOM PRISON BLUES
(Johnny Cash)

'56 Hi-Lo Music



Hello I'm Johnny Cash

I hear the train a comin' it's rollin' round the bend

And I ain't seen the sunshine since I don't know when

I'm stuck in Folsom Prison and time keeps draggin' on

But that train keeps a rollin' on down to San Antone

When I was just a baby my mama told me son

Always be a good boy don't ever play with guns

But I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die

When I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and I cry

[ guitar ]

I bet there's rich folks eatin' in some fancy dining car

They're probably drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars

Well I know I had it comin' I know I can't be free

But those people keep a movin' and that's what tortures me

[ guitar ]

Well if they freed me from this prison if that railroad train was mine

I bet I'd move it on a little farther down the line

Far from Folsom Prison that's where I want to stay

And I'd let that lonesome whistle blow my blues away

Album :


I keep hearin' you're concerned about my happiness
But all that thought you're givin' me is conscience I guess
If I was walkin' in your shoes, I wouldn't worry none
While you 'n' your friends are worried about me I'm havin' lots of fun

CHORUS
Countin' flowers on the wall
That don't bother me at all
Playin' solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain Kangaroo
Now don't tell me I've nothin' to do

Last night I dressed in tails, pretended I was on the town
As long as I can dream it's hard to slow this swinger down
So please don't give a thought to me, I'm really doin' fine
You can always find me here, I'm havin' quite a time

CHORUS

It's good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
Anyway my eyes are not accustomed to this light
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete

Don't tell me I've nothin' to do

RAINY DAY SAINTS
SATURDAY'S HAZE

http://www.gethip.com/covers/gh1116.jpg

BEAUTIFUL & HAUNTING POP-ROCK-PSYCH COMBINING PERFECT POP MELODIES & ROCK JAMS FROM CLEVELAND, OHIO'S VETERAN MULTI-TALENT MUSICIAN DAVE SWANSON: Hasil Adkins begat The Legendary Stardust Cowboy who begat Paul McCartney who begat Emmit Rhodes who in turn begat Todd Rundgren Who eventually begat The Bevis Frond who had nothing to do with Prince or Bob Log.

What does this have to do with the CD in your hands? Well, not a lot except that all those mentioned were or are essentially one man bands. Add to that list, Dave Swanson, who, under the name Rainy Day Saints, has issued his first album. Dave is no stranger to rock & roll having done time in many bands over the years-some you may have heard of (Guided By Voices, Cobra Verde, Death of Samantha, The Reactions) some you may not have (New Salem Witch Hunters, Dementia 13, HNG NXN, Speaker/Cranker). In these bands he has been a drummer or a guitarist or a bassist. On "Saturday's Haze", he is all those things as well as vocalist and the occasional keyboard. Why a one man band and not the real thing? Dave replies, "I don't understand the question, but a wise man once said keep a good head and always carry a light bulb." Puzzled, I move on. It is a record full of melodic minuets surrounded by crashing guitars, bass and drums. Songs, (all written by Dave Swanson), that stick to your mind then to your heart but not on your hands. Dave has been buying records since age 4 and has been playing an instrument since age 5. Blame Micky Dolenz if you must. Get Hip Records has now seen fit give Rainy Day Saints a home.
Enjoy. -Rob Roy Fingerhead

I'm really enjoying it. Some good guests on there, and a lot of good producers. The guy can rap, and most of the beats are hot. If you even remotely like 50/Banks/Young Buck/G-Unit you'll like this CD.

That single is bad ass...I cant wait for their new album to hit the shelves...System's been a great band since they came out, and I especially enjoy the fact that they acknowledge their Armenian heritage any chance they get...Last year on April 24th(89th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide), they played a concert here in LA at the Greek Theatre and the shows proceeds aided organizations urging the United States Congress to follow nations such as France and Canada in recognizing the Armenian genocide, in which an estimated 1.5 million people died at the hands of the Ottoman Empire during World War I. Being Armenian myself, I take great pride in my heritage and I'm glad that since System have been HUGE in the music industry, they still represent...:militia:

Yeah, thats an awesome song...Most every song from 80-85 is the sh!t...My favorites on that album are probably "Yesterday", "We're Only Gonna Die" and "Into The Night"...like I said though, you could pop in the CD and play it song by song, and be jammin' ya know? I basically like all albums by BR up to about the Stranger than Ficition...I've heard their newer albums, they arent bad but, totally arent the same band they used to be...Its funny though, I went to their concert here in LA in November and they didnt play anything new...Like everybody requested older songs, which are 10 times better than what they put out now a day...

I believe it was called Wonderfulness or something like that....I heard it was very good, like most early Cos...really, I only am familiar with Revenge and To Russell, My Brother, Whom I Slept With, both of which are great, great records. I plan on checking out the one you mention and Why Is Their Air? (I think that's the title anyways) in the future.

I would highly recommend Revenge if you can find it....nobody tells kid stories like the early Cos. That CD has aged far better (and continues to be better) than most stand up job CD's around today and the whole family can listen to it.......no mean feat that since when was the last time anyone could say a comedy album was truly funny but 100% clean with a straight face? Cos pulled it off on a regular basis....no one has been able to do it since.

I may be biased inasmuch as Scott was one of my teachers, but I think he's one of the baddest guitar players on the planet.

The new "Live" disc is sort of bluesy and features the trio Scott performs with most of the time nowadays.

Scott's recordings with the band "Tribal Tech" are more fusion-oriented, and feature more adventurous compositions and more balls-to-the-wall soloing.

Paco DeLucia - "Costias Buenas" -- I worked on the promotion of this album. INCREDIBLE flamenco guitarist. THis is our only nominee this year. Last year, we had 4, but we kept going against members of the Buena Vista Social Club -- in other words we had no shot.

Also, I believe it's "Best Historical Album", but David Glasser who works at AirShow Mastering here in Boulder (and right next door to my internship) is up for an award on re-mastering a bunch of old historical albums for a box set. He's already won twice, so hopefully he can add a third tonight. Very cool guy.

I try to explain that to my 15 year old and he doesnt believe me that it will help him in the long run.........he thinks the casualties/ramones/DK/sex pistols ect are the center of the universe.

Yeah, that's a tough one.

I occasionally run into the same problem with students in his age group.

I don't try to dictate musical tastes to them, but I try to emphasize that, if someday they get serious and decide to pursue music as a career, then stylistic versatility and skills like sight reading, theoretical knowledge, etc., will make them more employable and translate to more $$$.

There are only so many openings for the position of "rock star," and it's good to have a contingency plan for when your 15 minutes are up. ;)

First off, there's no such thing as a "bad musical elitist"....I freely admit that when it comes to this stuff, they don't come much more elitist than I....call it a fault or whatever, but I tend to think of it as a virtue.

Now onto your question for Buddy Holly....seek out From The Original Master Tapes not only one of the best sounding Holly "best of's" out there, but the one that delivers almost all of the goods you really need without being a completist. Plus, as an added bonus, I think you can get it on the cheap nowadays, giving it even more of an edge.

Hope that helps.

Rick Martinie(bassist) does tear it up, plays a 6-string bass which is rather uncommon(I believe most are 4 or 5 strings.) Matt McDonough is exceptional on drums as well, which is why I orginally started listening to them.

Personally, I like their ona nd off kind of style, they'll play a full out aggressive song like "Dig", then come back with a overall solid song like "Death Blooms" and then have a slow to fast then back to slow then back to fast song like "Nothing to gein", just a real cool difference in their music.

"Determined" and "Happy?" are the 2 song that are out now, determined is jsut an agressive ass song like Dig was, Happy is more of a "Not Falling", where it's never slow but doesnt really get THAT intense.

Couldn't find From The Original Master Tapes, and I searched all of the stores in town, even the ugly chain ones. So I gave up and grabbed a used copy of Greatest Hits from MCA. It has "Peggy Sue", "That'll Be The Day" and "It's So Easy", so I'm happy.

As for no such thing as bad musical elitist, I really am. I have an elitist attitude, but I also enjoy some real crap. Plus, I've been blessed with an UNCANNY ability to tolerate pop music -- my friend once dared me to sit through an entire "Top 25 Countdown" on the radio once and I did it without flinching. He left after 4 songs. Probably good considering the career I want to go into.

Well, when you're dealing with an artist like Holly (meaning a limited catalog) almost any "Best Of" package will do. You'd have to be a pretty maniacal audiophile to notice the difference in the sound now anyways.

As for no such thing as bad musical elitist, I really am. I have an elitist attitude, but I also enjoy some real crap.

So do I. "Enjoying some real crap" means "Guilty Pleasure" to me. I'm a sucker for Bubblegum Pop of the 60's and 70's and have a ton of it in my collection....you know, stuff like songs from The Banana Splits TV show or songs like Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes..that kinda thing. Yeah, it raises some eyebrows from time to time, but I don't care....I mean, why should I? ???

The hilarious thing about that stuff is that if you listen to it now, most of the backing tracks rock harder than almost any pop music (and some supposed rock) released over the last twenty years or so.

It's interesting to say the least, and I dont feel ashamed of listening to it since it's a rock song now.

For some reason, I jut love when rock bands cover pop songs like that. We're currently working on a cover of Kelly Clarkson's "Since you've been gone," just for something different to play at the bars(once we start doing that), it makes for an interesting song a very different reaction, even if it is "what the **** are they playing?"

When we do covers, we do them our way. I hate doing note for note covers. We may keep a melody or something, but we always add our stamp.

We played the 'hair bear bunch' theme song the other night.....

Same here, except when we're playing songs that are already hard rock, just finished "I stand alone" by Godsmack and we basically went by the tabs(except for me since I cant read music, I went by ear.)

Thats why I like doing covers of songs hat arent rock, we develop our own sound and make them our own.

She's coming to Cleveland April 9th, might be an early birthday present for me.

Tabs are easy to read denfan - just remember, each line and space is a different drum.

Yeah I'm starting to learn now, but never had any lessons or teachings on how to plays drums, I'm self-taught just by watching other drummers perform, so it's taking some getting used to by trying to read music.

me too man - self taught for the most part. I also have an unorthodox style about me too (or other drummers i've run into say so) -

reading music isn't hard, get drumming for dummies or something, it's good for learning how to read music and symbols

I'm probably a text-book drummer, just because I play like all other drummers I've seen since I've learned how to just by watching them. It shows too because I'm left handed in everything I do, but play drums right-handed, I guess it helps since I'm quick with my left naturally and with all the work I've put in right arm, it's all evened out.

My lead guitarist just printed out 5 pages for me about reading tabs that I've been skimming through, toughest part about drumming for me, for some reason, is grabbing the cymbal after hitting it, not sure what my deal is but it just never sounds right when I grip it instead of letting it ride out.

Last year, the day after my birthday A Perfect Circle was in town, that made my damn year right there! Just worked out so grand, first time going out above the legal age to consume and purchase alcohol was that concert, what a night!

I like them both a lot. If you've listened to and enjoyed any of his previous albums, I would recommend picking at least one of them up. I'm Wide Awake is a more traditional sound. Digital Ash, as the name would imply, has more electronic sounds throughout it. He's a great writer, and that he can release two solid albums at the same time is impressive. Dylan comparisons are premature, but I look forward to seeing more from Bright Eyes.

The band Bright Eyes is actually Conor Oberst and various other musicians (different for each album). He has released a couple previous albums, but his latest two have gained him the most attention. There are plenty of samples on the internet if you want to know what he sounds like. Rock with a little country, occasionally some techno/electric inspired sound.

Here's what it says on his website http://www.saddle-creek.com/bands/brighteyes/
