Re: It's Friday: Post some music that you like and want to share

The Coliseum in Athens, (Georgia) has the acoustics of a cave. To hear a band there you had to be very near the front row or the echoes made the music sound wretched. I was right up front in 1973 for, I think, an Allman Brothers concert. The opening act was some L.A. band with the weird name, Steely Dan. I’d never heard anything like them. I was blown away, man. So cool and tight. Been a big fan since first hearing Do It Again, the opening number. They only toured once back then, being more a studio kind of band... lots of different players sitting in for just the right sound. (Did see them at Chastain just a few years ago). Hey Nineteen (1970) always satisfies. The album, Aja (1977) was part of the soundtrack of some formative years- fantastic!

Speaking of Steely Dan.
I was just watching this earlier, I though they were lip syncing at first but they are just a really good Steely Dan cover band.

For the music geeks out there: Brian Wilson's genius for those not familiar (and think he just wrote some cheesy surf and GTO songs). 24 yr old kid telling the best session players (Wrecking Crew) in the world how to play.

A great video about and intro to Steely Dan
Steely Dan: More Than Just a Band

And now just to f* with your expectations. Metal? J-Pop? Why not both? But, definitely not soothing or mellow. If mixing chocolate and peanut butter isn't for you, probably give this one a miss. btw, the chocolate and pb don't mix until about 2 min in. Biggrin

Re: It's Friday: Post some music that you like and want to share

It's Saturday, late as usual.

I remember listening to this song, part of the 80s "New Wave". It was among the refreshing power pop songs from the 70s and 80s which included the likes of Big Star, REM, the Cars, etc.

Someday, I'll do a post about Album 88, GA State's radio station which back then pumped out some of the best new music in the nation. So many songs...

Thanks, I enjoyed that, and would love to hear more Album 88 (Left on the Dial, Right on the Music). 90.5 WUOG was my station in those days!
Here is Atlanta's own 'The Brains" from the same era.
