I regard 65 as an interesting year — Brit invasion well underway and hair and fashions and attitudes already shifted some, but rrrreally turning corner and swinging wider in freakyness in 65, winding up for even fuller blast/blossoming/boogie-ing/ counterculture bounce-bash to come.

(i guess the st version of ballad of easy rider is not the byrds but just Roger McGuinn)
...i'm not much of a byrds fan in general but there is a lot i really like; it's just that i can't stand most of the radio stuff and the Dylan covers (except you ain't goin' nowhere)

Well, LA 65-68 is a huge deal for me, and they really cover it very thoroughly. You get stuff from all the big names, Byrds, Love etc, but also lots of amazing obscurities. I have a bunch of the original singles, but it was worth picking up anyway.

Larry @10.44 that's what i'm considering.
- although... i once worked for someone who would get into something and play it over and over all day every day for weeks or months and sweetheart of the rodeo and another full-on country album got that treatment and i didn't like it in the beginning and my dislike only increased.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:03pm Funky16Corners:

A lot of that stuff is really country rock, or country-inflected rock music. If you're deep into "real" country, a lot of it sounds thin and undercooked. If you take the time to dig into that specific sound, there's a lot of good stuff
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:05pm Dean:

Almost played some Booker Ervin earlier this evening. Opted instead for Manuel Mengis (trumpet, but featuring alto and tenor sax, too).

Missed the country rock, here for the jazz (catch up in the archives, looks like great sets).

He's one of my faves. I was turned on to him by an older jazzbo/hippie guy I used to work with who raved about him. I quickly fell in love with his sound.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:07pm Dean:

Come to think of it, played some J.D. Souther just a couple nights ago. He's, I suppose, easy to hate L.A. rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:09pm Funky16Corners:

Some day I'm going to hit the record store and buy up as much of that 1972-1980 LA singer songwriter stuff and deep dive into it. While there is sure to be lots of cocaine induced excess, I expect that the quality of the people involved means that there's some great music, too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:12pm coelacanth∅:

Larry (sorry i'm not on top of the comments!) my tastes in country are pretty specific. i love Hank Williams, but my favorite HW songs by far are his starker songs; and demos of just him w guitar. some songs ("mansion on the hill,ie) are good songs - just ruined by inane steel git fills. other songs are pretty stupid but are redeemed by his stellar singing.
...i like Roy Acuff; i like Slim Whitman sometimes! i'm thoroughly repulsed by hank jr. and nearly every country "giant" i've heard who's been active during my lifetime.

  Wed. 4/11/18 11:14pm Dean:

Well, there are the Eagles and everybody else. I myself can't bear those guys, yet I enjoy Souther (likely because he is *not* an Eagle). I love Linda, enjoy Andrew Gold, etc. Never quite caught on to the Byrds, though, but I enjoy Parsons. I definitely appreciate the pop aspect of the L.A. sound, the fact that it is not country. My experience with country music is narrow: I love Larry Hosford, sorry he died. But even he is pop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:15pm coelacanth∅:

Aaron Copland? Classical? Country? Pop? Who knows?!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:18pm Funky16Corners:

The early 20th century classical guys like Stravinsky, Copland, Milhaud, Gershwin, all style-mashers
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:18pm Dean:

(In fact, Copland's early piano work is rather difficult.)

i like a few early eagles songs. even the doobies were considered country rock at first. that stuff's pretty good.

Dean do you know Wendy Waldman? Andrew Gold was a friend of hers and appeared on her early albums. He was great.
I love his albums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:19pm doctorjazz:

Like the old time country guys, the bluegrass guys, Honkey Tonk, and some modern stuff too (depends on who; don't know tons of it, but some, but the best stuff is generally the best stuff, whatever genre to me. Hey, I love a great Polka...)
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:20pm Dean:

Waldman definitely rings a bell, but why? I don't recognize her album covers, but I'm sure I encountered her stuff in the '70s.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:24pm Funky16Corners:

He was on the pop/rock side of things. He was also the son of Marni Nixon, the singer who dubbed in Natalie Wood's vocals in West Side Story
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:24pm Dean:

"Lonely Boy," no doubt. Pure pop. But he was long connected to Linda R., and did some great country-ish stuff on, e.g., the Prisoner in Disguise album (a Souther song), which also featured Neil Young, Dolly Parton...maybe the best version of Dolly's "I Will Always Love You."

No familiarity with Gold’s other work and adventures, but Lonely Boy...oy, so awkward, those lyrics and the sketch of the “boy.” Remained a permanent sour face inducer.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:34pm Dean:

GCS is pop country out of Kentucky and Arizona. They had a series of albums on Capitol in the '70s. I think they're still plugging along.

McCabe's. What a venue. What an amazing venue.

Ervin is actually pretty "technical", can play fast if he wants to...always thought of him as the mellow foil to Dolphy and some of the other monsters in the Mingus band.

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:37pm Parq:

Talking about that era, and Rondstadt in particular, reminds me of Linda's cover of Tracy Nelson's "Down So Low", which a friend of mine hipped me to in 1979. Me, I distinguish Country Rock (Poco, the Riders) from west coast singer-songwriter (Eagles, America, Jackson Browne). It's the latter I've practically no use for.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:37pm Dean:

Different nights, of course. The venue. It's all about the venue.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:39pm Dean:

Yes, love Poco, can't come around to Browne. Gave up and broke down and started acquiring America stuff. Can't shake them, but I suspect it's due in part to George Martin.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:40pm Dean:

But I love Iain Matthews' take on "These Days."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:40pm Funky16Corners:

I like early Poco a lot, but I think a bunch of it dovetails with the Buffalo Springfield sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:40pm doctorjazz:

Grew up listening to Jackson Brown, Eagles, still have a soft spot for them (though I don't pull the albums out)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:43pm doctorjazz:

Not many venues in NY area with that eclectic booking policy I know of...maybe the Bottom Line was close when it was around.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:45pm Dean:

McCabe's is sui generis. It's a guitar store. The walls are lined with string instruments. They resonate during shows.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:46pm still b/p:

Haven’t understood the hot venom that Eagles stir. Some of the music’s insipid, and their crazy-money reunion antics are scoffworthy, but altogether just a flavor of pop, not all awful, some with medium nostalgia appeal. The ritualistic hammering and burning....’sup with that?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:46pm coelacanth∅:

i make a distinction between poco, nrps & the ca. stuff, but i can't say i like - or dislike, one realm more than the other. i do like some songs by each of those artists. i like early Browne. (influenced by a group of girls i hung with as a teen)
my older brother got into nrps and i followed suit and got a few albums around the age of 14 (?) soft spot, yes, when i hear it; but i never put those records on.

Just downloaded a file a friend sent me, speaking of West Coast venues-Masada, live at Yoshi's 5/27/00. That was one of the GREAT live bands, hope the sound quality is good (will share if anyone is interested...)

I actually like a lot of Eagles music. I can't stand Henley or Frey, two of the biggest egos to roll down the pike. I almost always leave them on the radio when they come on (Long Run stuff excepted)

still b/p -it's fashion! like hating the beatles or radiohead or led zeppelin.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:49pm Dean:

@still b/p: I think you answered your own question...

"Some of the music’s insipid, and their crazy-money reunion antics are scoffworthy, but altogether just a flavor of pop, not all awful, some with medium nostalgia appeal."

But I remember hearing them in the early '70s and thinking, "This is just cloying crap."

I agree, Coel...

(except i don't mean to place the eagles within 1700 miles to the level of those others!)
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:50pm Dean:

Granted, part of what made it cloying crap was that they weren't Mahavishnu Orchestra, but factor out that and...they're still cloying crap.

Smthsonian really knew how to come up with catchy titles for albums, dontchathink?

If only hating Radiohead were fashion, I'd be a happier man.

They're like scientific notation

hahaha i don't mean that as harsh as it may seem! i'm not on that bandwagon. (just - i name 3 bands that either changed the world or that i'm personally passionate about)

Larry @11.51 you mean radiohead?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:55pm Funky16Corners:

No, the Smithsonian record titles
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:55pm still b/p:

Lots of riders/recordmakers aboard cloying crapwagons of the period. Size of success perhaps corresponds to size and spikiness of bat brought easily to hand for the beatin’.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:55pm Dean:

I think he means the Smithsonian titles. I'd suggest that Elliott Smith's title is more like scientific notation.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:56pm coelacanth∅:

haha okay! cuz i could see someone who isn't really listening saying that about radiohead.
  Wed. 4/11/18 11:58pm still b/p:

Cotten stuff outstanding.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/11/18 11:58pm doctorjazz:

Yup, have to look for the Cotton CD.
