dig! Afrikan Sciences has a melodic 90s Planet Mu feel to it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 9:14pm Sam Segal:

Most definitely, @Ngh! Planet E is another planet this record puts me on.

Heya Sam. No sign of my horse, but the music's great!

I even like my dourness on wry.

Thanks John!
  Mon. 2/13/17 9:37pm Carmichael:

Captain Kirk was wry with the dowager. Apropos of nothing ...
Avatar Mon. 2/13/17 9:41pm still b/p:

This music is helpful for doing some important..or fake...degree of straightening & sorting in my worst piled room before the landlord comes in with an electrician for some work tomorrow and ends up trying to charge me with disorderly hoarderly conduct.

"Wry with the dowager" sounds like an 70s Eno song title.
  Mon. 2/13/17 9:43pm johnk77:

this would all work as pre show music
s.o.b.s nyc back in the day
now getting more danceable
well done selecter
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 9:48pm Sam Segal:

Appreciate it, @John!
Good luck, @stillbp. If You Lose Your Horse is a hoarder safe space. You can bring as much useless crap in here as you like.
  Mon. 2/13/17 9:48pm Carmichael:

Selector is actually a sweet dj name.
  Mon. 2/13/17 9:50pm Carmichael:

@bp: no reason to let anyone see your shit. You pay your rent ...
Avatar Mon. 2/13/17 9:59pm Doug Schulkind:

I still get privately embarrassed to admit how long it took me to get the Hip-O was a goof on Rhino.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:03pm Uncle Michael:

Here, My Dear was a payoff to a divorce settlement. It was intended to be garbage...but Marvin's Marvin...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:05pm Uncle Michael:

Which Fleetwood Mac are millennials into?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:07pm Scraps:

Huh. I thought Here My Dear got good reviews, though it has got maybe better since... I know Christgau praised it at the time
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:08pm Uncle Michael:

I guess the answer to my question is 'the Buckingham/Nicks' lineup.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:10pm Uncle Michael:

Depending on how you count, there have been at least five Fleetwood Macs...maybe seven or eight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:12pm Scraps:

Christgau:
Marvin Gaye: Here My Dear [Tamla, 1978]
The brightness of the disco remix Motown has made available on "A Funky Space Reincarnation" is a vivid reminder of how pathologically laid back Gaye is striving to be. I mean, seventy minutes of pop music with nary a melody line almost qualifies as a tour de force, and the third side barely escapes the turntable at all. Yet this is a fascinating, playable album. Its confessional ranges from naked poetry ("Somebody tell me please/Why do I have to pay attorney fees?" is a modernist trope that ranks with any of Elvis Costello's) to rank jive, because Gaye's self-involvement is so open and unmediated, guileless even at its most insincere, it retains unusual documentary charm. And within the sweet, quiet, seductive, and slightly boring mood Gaye is at such pains to realize, his rhythmic undulations and whisper-to-a-scream timbral shifts can engross the mind, the body, and above all the ear. Definitely a weird one. B+
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:12pm Uncle Michael:

Original quartet
add Danny Kirwin
subtract Green, add Perfect and Welch
subtract Welch, add Buckingham and Nicks
subtract Buckingham and Nicks, add Rocky and Billy Burnett
etc.
  Mon. 2/13/17 10:13pm Carmichael:

I hereby declare that I will not engage in any discussion about the "real" Fleetwood Mac ....
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:15pm Ike:

Blurp!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:15pm Uncle Michael:

I'm not debating 'real', I'm just curious about which lineup has been designated cool by the recently-adult.
  Mon. 2/13/17 10:15pm Carmichael:

Or, for that matter, the "real" Pink Floyd.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:15pm Sam Segal:

The question though, @Scraps, is whether Christgau is a good barometer for general critical opinion
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:15pm Uncle Michael:

Catch a pickle, Ike?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:16pm Sam Segal:

Oh, hiya, @Ike!
@Doug, I'll admit...I didn't get Hip-O joke until you just pointed it out
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:18pm Scraps:

And Xgau gives it up further when the Hip-O repackage was released, giving it 4 stars.

Sure, Sam; but when Xgau's being contrary, you can usually figure it out. But you're right, he's only one critic
  Mon. 2/13/17 10:20pm Carmichael:

I identify with Unterberger myself, although yeah it's just one opinion.

It's no wonder my record label, Buffal-O failed to turn a profit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:27pm Uncle Michael:

Offal Records is mine.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:31pm Scraps:

Wikipedia says both it was "panned", and a few sentences later it was "mixed". Either way, looks like I was wrong. Well, critics were wrong (I say).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:34pm Scraps:

Reevaluation sure came fast, though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:36pm Scraps:

Of course, his early death prompted reevaluation, as it does.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:40pm Sam Segal:

Good point, @Scraps. Reevaluation is an odd thing. I do feel like the internet and its hunger for content can only speed up the process. Writers need to be the first to "rediscover" a hidden gem.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 2/13/17 10:44pm Uncle Michael:

I'll be taking my leave from the comments now. Thanks for the music, Sam. 'night, all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:45pm Scraps:

Oh yeah. And certainly I will champion a misunderstood album probably before a everybody-knows album.
  Mon. 2/13/17 10:46pm Carmichael:

Later, UM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 10:53pm Sam Segal:

Peace, @UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 11:29pm northguineahills:

I'm really behind on the Clean Feed feed lately... (another one of their bands new to me).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 11:34pm Sam Segal:

@ngh: Clean Feed really never stops blowing me away. When all is said and done, they'll be thought of as one of the more important labels in the history of jazz, as far as I'm concerned
  Mon. 2/13/17 11:54pm Dean:

Yep. And hat hut.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/13/17 11:59pm Sam Segal:

Most definitely, @Dean.
  Mon. 2/13/17 11:59pm Dean:

Re: the show's theme tonight, do refer to National Lampoon's high school annual parody, in which appears a parody of a high school history textbook, in which one of the questions posed at the end of the chapter to prompt students to think about counterfactuals is, "What if George Washington had been born a horse?"
