Favoriting Explorers Room with Flash Strap: Playlist from May 7, 2020 Favoriting

Flash Strap's avatar View Flash Strap's profile Favoriting

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.

@Flash: My mother runs a food pantry/clothes charity. In college, I used to pick out clothes from there that no one else wanted. I went to the donated pile, and found a copy of Ralf & Florian. They don't accept music, weird, and at the time, I didn't even know the album existed (one of my best finds).

Did Kraftwerk have long hair, TDK?
Avatar 7:27pm
Flash Strap:

that's some find!
I had a similar out-of-the-blue experience when my mother was working at the thrift store and I was tagging along, in North Carolina, not very cosmopolitan, and found a minty Jean Michel Jarre's Oxygene. felt like it was beamed down from outer space & into my hands

not such a rare thing I know now, but then it seemed without precedent

@Doc: big time
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:44pm

If I remember correctly, Mingus didn't like his bass on the original, and did record new lines over it. I believe it's available I the original and overdubbed versions (or it was).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm
WR:

Ok, cooking done, chilling while waiting for partner to be ready. I linked that cover mostly for comic effect. But my main point is that that cover was at the height of his commercial success and I feel fairly sure he had full control. Besides the music he made, he was A&R, if not total control / owner of Embryo records which released many diverse & creative recordings. And he did have Sonny Sharrock as his guitarist for a while when at his peak popularity. So not a HM hater, just find him a curiosity.

Ha ha. I love that stuff. I saw the film Cotton Comes To Harlem late one night on TV many years ago, w Godfrey Cambridge. It was cool, but the original writing is fabulous.
