Great American Classical Music on a great American Holiday.
A Slovenian orchestra Chas. Ives Sym. No.2 Finale
Ives at his irreverent best. Lots of borrowed tunes you've heard before.
And that wonderful "up yours" chord at the very end.
It was Black Friday Record Store Day yesterday.
You get to support your LRS and buy some special releases all at the same time.
I picked up a live concert of the Ramones in Glasgow, the soundtrack to Joan Jett's documentary Bad Reputation, and Rocka Rolla Judas Priest's first album.
Rocka Rolla sounds frelling amazing, cut from the analog and without the hiss the original has, it is such a great listen.
I wish all of the re-releases of Priest were this good.
Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame Radio
Just got done watching the documentary Rumble - The Indian Who Rocked The World about Native American influence on music in the US.
It is amazing and I highly recommend folks see it.
The title is based on Link Wrays song Rumble.
It was the only instrumental to be banned.
For some reason I like it, sort of, but this is one of the most boring songs I've ever heard. Right up there with 'Little Drummer Boy.'
Something else from Record Store Day.
It's a 45 from Garbage with John Doe and Exene Cervenka.
Very dark, very Celtic, basically a murder ballad.
Back to the I-tunes library on shuffle. Almost time for Christmas songs. Christmas At Ground Zero is my favorite.
