It's really great that the artistry of Sonny Bono is (somewhat...) accepted here. Sonny Bono always acknowledged that his apprenticeship with Phil Spector taught him everything he knew about making records, and he made some masterpieces. The first 4 Sonny & Cher albums, and the first 4 Cher solo albums are packed with sonic Spectorian treasures. The very fact that Sonny stuck with his own version of the Wall of Sound long after it was commercially viable (in rock'n'roll) is as much his inspired tribute to learned brilliance as it was to anything else. When the music world had thoroughly dismissed Sonny by the early '80s, he was humbled and deeply thankful that he was acknowledged as a maker of some very fine music. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The latest Alvin Toffler book, "The Third Wave" (I think that's the title), posits that we're on the cusp of just that. The first wave was agriculture; the second, indusry; and the thirs, information. In each case, the giants of each wave, as the wave subsided, tried desperately to hold on to what they had, often so desperately that it drove away the customers and caused them to set up alternate sources. Perhaps the coming demise - or at least transformation - of Big Music fulfills Toffler's theory. Phil again: > I think there may be a basic human need for long-form music, for > coherent collections of songs that only something like an album can > fulfill....[W]hat may occur...is the retention of the CD, or > something like it, with albums taking on a more grassroots role, > made and distributed by the artists themselves. Some artists have said they'd make more selling self-produced and -pressed CDs off the bandstand than signing with a major label and suffering all the creative accounting and hijinks that go along with it. I think this grassroots role is already happening - a few of my favorite releases of the past few years have been just this type of product/project. > But the music has always risen to the occasion.... Exactly - as long as there's a need to create and to listen to creations, the medium will ultimately be secondary, in service to the content. Friscopedro: > I honestly feel that listening to a vinyl album, pulled out of that > big cardboard sleeve with the square foot of artwork on it, and > flipped over manually at the end of side one, just has a completely > different vibe to it than listening to a CD, and I'm not talking > about an aural experience. Here's a way to stop mass bootlegging: back to vinyl. Digital copies don't degrade - copies from vinyl do. (Only half joking.) Orion: > Billboard would with their book "One Hit Wonders" state that any > artist/group that never had a song hit the top 40 again, was a one > hit wonder... Just a thought. An arbitrary and capricious designation, in my opinion, the kind that leads to Clear Channelization of the brain. I don't have charts and examples in front of me, or the time to research them, but many records that were "lower charters" have had a longer life spans as oldies than some of their larger brethren. OK for now - andmoreagain later.... Country Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 23 Date: Wed, 10 Dec 2003 17:18:22 -0800 (PST) From: Watson Macblue Subject: Re: Worst Rhyme In A Song? Laying aside for the moment that maybe two-thirds of the "rhymes" in modern rock are actually assonances (and the weird belief that the "s" at the end of a plural isn't really there when it comes to rhyming it), my personal bugbear has to be a rhyme in Joni Mitchell's For Free, which is made all the worse by the fact that it's a perfectly good rhyme to start with: I went shopping today for *jewels* (rhyme) And the children let out from the *schools* Nothing wrong with that. BUT Our Joni has to get some "style" involved, so she actually sings "... shopping today for jew - woo - woo - woo - WELLS". The way she sings it, the last syllable, misplaced stress and all, rhymes with "bells," so she is left with the bizarre need to *force* a good rhyme. She sings "...children let out from the schoo - woo - WELLS". God, that hurts. I haven't played Ladies Of The Canyon for years, and that's one of the reasons. Well, that and the sophomoric yodelling vocals, the whining God-it's-tough-being-rich lyrics, the clunky that-chord's-around-here- someplace piano-playing etc etc et-goddam-cetera. Add to that the worst grasp of meter since William McGonagall, and you have a true Modern Classic. Not. Now, just let me loose on that host of song-writing clowns who can't get the case difference between "you and me" and "you and I" ...

Message: 24 Date: Wed, 10 Dec 2003 19:55:04 -0500 From: Country Paul Subject: Irwin's "Gender Bias" music; early synths; Rainy Day discog additions; more Same-sex adaptations: Heard today - a synth version (but still rockin') of Z. Z. Top's "Legs" by a group called Like A Tim (I don't name 'em, just report 'em) with lead vocal by Gina D'Orio. No gender switching - "I want her, oh how I need her" was intact. Also heard another female-led group, Like A Team (same comment as above), doing a pretty nice versionm of the Beach Boys' "The Lonely Sea." Anyone have any leads on a female group called the Jarmelettes? "The Baby Money Song" is acapella with just percussion in somewhat of a girl-group style. All the above courtesy of Irwin Chusid on WFMU; Wednesday afternoons from 2-3pm (Eastern Time, US) he has a segment called "Gender Bias," one hour of female artists. (He even played Sue Thompson's "Norman" today!) It's archived at http://www.wfmu.org On to catching up again... Peter McDonnell wrote: > I think I heard that the first single to be number one in both > countries simultaneously was "Get Off Of My Cloud". I have no way > of knowing if that's erroneous. Anybody? One of the first UK hits I remember on US charts was Laurie London's "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands." Was this a simultaneous US/ UK hit? How high did it go in the UK? Re: The first song to use a synthesizer - would Max Crook's Musitrono in Del Shannon's "Runaway" count? Or would that be some form of organ? Incidentally, Irwin (again WFMU) played three Dutch synth artists from the mid-to-late-50's today, all of who were attempting to make pop music (instrumentals) and not just bleeps and bloops. These predate all we've been discussing. Wish I could remember their names; check the WFMU archives. Creds where due. Related note from Art Longmire; > One group that was mentioned in an earlier post was The United > States of America-I've never heard their album but have always > heard that it is great. Overall, yes. Much still holds up. "The American Metaphysical Circus" and "Love Song To The Dead Che" are outstanding, and the synth work is smoothly integrated into the whole track. USA is profiled in Irwin Chusid's book "Songs In The Key of Z" (www.keyofz.com). (There's that name again - and no, I'm not on Irwin's payroll.) First, Davie Gordon amazes everyone with the Gazette label discography, then he compiles a discography of Rainy Day Thank you!!! I'm completely blown away - and actually, I can even add a little to it: I think 45-8001 was The Flying Machine, James Taylor's pre-Apple group, and I believe the A-side was "Rainy Day Man." As I remember it was a bit more uptempo and a bit poppier arrangement than the Apple version. (We used to play it on WBRU occasionally as an alternate version.) There was also an album on the label by the same group, white cover with a sketch or illustration of some sort. Re: 45-8002, Chip Taylor's "You Should Be From Monterrey" is an exceptional quasi-Beach Boys song and arrangement drenched in Spectorian echo. The flip is "I'll Never Be Alone Again," a very pretty song which feels like a crossways rewrite of "Whiter Shade of Pale" (by Procol Harum, one of my - and Bob Rashkow's - favorite progressive groups). It's the same song as the Kathy McCord version, with the same instrumental track slightly remixed: the guitars are more prominent in the Taylor mix, and thus even more predictive of Daniel Lanois' production techniques than the McCord track. I also have a copy of the Jeanne Fox record, a self-duetted midtempo side, very nice arrangement by Chip Taylor on a less-than-memorable song. This DJ pressing is a double A side, so I can't help on the flip. I've taken the liberty of re-attaching your discography with the above additions, Davie, and thank you again.

Sorry. Don Charles: > What do y'all think about this? How will the death of albums impact > those of us who collect vintage pop and rock? My two cents; Personally, I miss singles, although I love albums too. Certain kinds of music seem to ask for certain formats. I think the record industry misses some form of singles, too; would their dollar volume be so low if there was a viable singles format?

Could be -- wasn't she on MGM at that point? I doubt they'd have had two producers with the same name at the same time. Then again, if the Sahara album was genuinely live, I can't really imagine him going off to Vegas to supervise it. --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
