Turning over the toy box and jamming together the gloriously mismatched musical Lincoln Logs, Legos and Tinker Toys from Tin Pan Alley pluggers, pickled egg tavern weepers, lockstep soul ensembles, skinny-tie power poppers, Eurotrash ravers, moontanned art school rockers, drunken soccer anthems and anything else that seems like a good idea at the time. There are no guilty pleasures.

More nerdishness: OED also points to a '51 reference to the day as a holiday: "‘Friday-after-Thanksgiving-itis’ is a disease second only to the bubonic plague in its effects... When you decide you want to sweeten up the holiday kitty, pick Black Friday to add to the list..Friday after Thanksgiving is the company's seventh paid holiday." Only just realized why "black" is so fitting, too: "a day on which retailers' accounts went from being in the red to being in the black..."

When working a CD store - someone had left behind Disc 3 of the BeachBoys' 'Good Vibration' box - fairly beat w/ no case. I nabbed it & love it - the period they got to by Disc3. & love discovering what becomes essential music in such serendipitous manner, especially.

I have never heard the revivalism in their less-R&B stuff. Close your eyes to the wardrobe and they're less revivalist that 10,000 Beatlesque bands are. They never sounded amything like the Who to me.

Yeah, they kinda sounded more like Doctor Feelgood, but they did fashion themselves as neo-Mods, and "Away from the Numbers" on the first album was Who-sey. I never thought Cheap Trick sounded like The Beatles, either, but that was the word c.1978.

Well said - I mean that's what's in people's heads, really - 'Mod Revivalists'. I think Weller was well in w/ the Punk era ethic of not kowtowing to Elders - he was never stymied by awe in Townshend's presence for instance...I think a lot of what they did was a restatement of TheWho ('This Is the Modern World') - but also 'Revolver' Beatles, U.S. R&B, Kinks...
Interesting Dean: I think Back Then we were closer to the Sources & it was a Thing - less now PostPostPost-Modern; we forgive people for references more immediately...I think Move w/ the Trick a lot, actually...

That "Open up yer eyes..." quote, RRN63, is at least as well put as many of Harold Bloom's own musings on influence.

Registering two thumbs up for that "Cold, Cold Heart" cover.
  Fri. 11/25/16 2:27pm Dean:

I remember that, johnk77. Then there were the not-so-subtle references (Taxman, ELO Kiddies), but still, I felt like I had to listen to them from a certain angle to get the talk about influence. Sure loved them.

It's interesting to put Cheap Trick into a context that follows Big Star and The Raspberries.

Hi. I've been listening while assembling shelves in the garage. Just reading the comments while having some lunch. Back to the garage now.

Hey Alex!

For sure. And Pink Fairies.

At the time, no question I wanted to be in The Raspberries or even just a second rate power pop band. Anybody remember The Pop?

Great cover. The Stones followed The Beatles' cues - but here's one case they really rose to it.

Nice 4 Strong Winds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 11/25/16 2:41pm melinda:

I read that Ian Tyson felt the need to write a song about wind in response to 'Blowin' in the Wind'.

Wind is where the money is.

Exactly.

It's the day after Thanksgiving and you're all talking about wind. What, natural gas next?

Might have to spin this Dylan record in full tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 11/25/16 2:47pm Uncle Michael:

It's his masterpiece.
  Fri. 11/25/16 2:48pm Dean:

I remember hearing it on the radio, played in full when it came out. I wasn't even a Dylan fan at the time, but it impressed me.
