Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Options

This is where all of culture and all of time are collapsed into one seductive portal and viewed through the panoramic lens of the exotic. Come and embark on an armchair-travel virtual-voyage to the heart of timeless darkness and beyond; embrace the numinous monolith of the exotic immensity. Let us find that place where hybridization meets its destiny as pure fantasy. Let us become observers observing those others who are ourselves. You wear your mask and I'll wear mine.

That Timmy Thomas is an anytime LP for me

picked this Cowley up the other day and did the classic thing of playing it at the wrong speed and liking it better that way – now we can all share in my preference
  Thu. 5/3/18 7:34pm Prabha Devi:

Speed kills
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/3/18 7:34pm Passaic River Blues:

As many times as I've heard the song "Why Can't We Live Together" (has to be hundreds by this point), I've never heard that cut before and it was fantastic.
  Thu. 5/3/18 7:34pm Prabha Devi:

;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/3/18 7:35pm Little Danny:

Ah that's such a great theme to mine, Evan. I did the same with a 45 copy of Ravi Shankar's jazzy "Fire Night" years ago
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:36pm Flash Strap:

@PRB: the whole LP is just so good. maybe my #1 version of First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, of all things. Also, "Cold, Cold People"
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 5/3/18 7:36pm northguineahills:

Loved the Hyman! Busy doing lab work (this all new to me).

I'll second that, Sadhu
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:39pm Sadhu Sadhu:

@flash. Ever heard Dress you up with my love by madona at 33? 10000x better than the original
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:40pm Prabha Devi:

You should check out Al Lovers mixtape on DW where he put lots of 60s stuff through some effects.. not an expert so don't know what it was but it sounded cool. Its called Purgatory Blues
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:40pm Flash Strap:

@LD, re: Moroder - definitely. a lot of that Muscle Up and School Daze Cowley is actually just tracks he recorded and later slowed down for atmospheric effect, so it's really very Cowley all the way
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:40pm Flash Strap:

Will do, Prabha, sounds excellent
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:40pm Prabha Devi:

And BTW... someone played a Radiohead song at the wrong speed and it ALMOST sounded good...
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:42pm Sadhu Sadhu:

Prabha: Well, that effect got a bit tiering after a while... Was nice ffor the first 20 minutes. But hes a celebrity, so anything goes. haha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/3/18 7:42pm hyde:

this is cracking me up because ca. 1982 i had a Material 12" that i played at 33 for years even tho i eventually found it was a 45
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:43pm Sadhu Sadhu:

hyde: haha. I really cant listen to Dress you up at normal speed after hearing it at 33. Guess its the same for Material girl. Madonas voice even sound better at that speed.
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:43pm Prabha Devi:

Haha.. true. But some of the songs were NICE
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:44pm Sadhu Sadhu:

Prabha: Defenitely

Evan: Speeking of speed. Didnt you do a full mixtape that was only slowed down tunes? Or was it a full album that you just slowed down years back?

@Sadhu: I did 2 mixes of slowed down exotica tunes a while back, yeah
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 7:59pm Flash Strap:

also slowed down the better part of Lalo Schifrin's Black Widow LP

Hey Melinda!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/3/18 8:02pm Passaic River Blues:

@Sadhu: you're right that there are a ton. I am pretty indiscriminate--like Blue Note to the cheesiest fusion stuff. "Lawrence of Newark" is my favorite and next in line is probably Tony Williams' Lifetime's "Emergency".
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 8:03pm Flash Strap:

Should have noted this in the break: all of side A is Lecuona compositions (which is what we're hearing)

side B does all the hits, Hawaiian War Chant, Caravan...

Hi Melinda! welcome!

@Sadhu: they're called Exotiste and Exotiste Vol. II

Passaic River Blues: While I really have been enjoying Lawrenc of Newark, Ive never gotten around to check out that much else he did. I only have Unity and Larry Young's Fuel which i cant remember much of, so I guess they didnt leave that much of an impression. But i should definitely check out more of his stuff.

i would kill to see that tour documentary. I guess they all fell in love with her. the live album from that time is all the proof you need that she was really an incredible artist – she hits all those notes live, does all those rapid changes, live!

This is killer.

good stuff
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 9:19pm Flash Strap:

This is such cool album. I bought this and about 40 soviet LPs from a guy for a dollar. Was worth it just for the Blue Moses but I later sold one of the 10" soviet records for a pretty penny as they say

or a "hefty doubloon" if you prefer, and you may lay to that
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 9:21pm Flash Strap:

still stuck with the other 39 soviet records though...

enough schlager and then some
Avatar Thu. 5/3/18 9:22pm Flash Strap:

this whole record is TNT though, truly. Randy Weston got on a roll there for a while
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 5/3/18 9:25pm Passaic River Blues:
