Ewan, this is amazing! I’ll put this on in the background while I work. A lovely diverse mix of genres!
I am new to spotify (I know)… I may need a little help finding out how I actually find this in the desktop App
then lost it again… HELP
Ah, @Ewan - is it a public playlist? I just tried to search for it and can’t find it - so if you make it ‘public’ anyone who searches ‘Society’s Community Playlist’ should be able to get it?
Led Zep, Ramble On. My “going out in my box” song.
I got a little bit excited when I saw your Playlist especially Led Zep, Joni, Steely Dan but the one that really got me piqued was which track by the MAN.
I have never heard of “The Man,” but there was a group called “Man” from near Neath (close to Swansea" and I think that their most famous track was “Sp*nk Box!!” It is a cracker but probably lost now, in the ether.
No matter, well done for taking the time to entertain us all!
The ether that is youtube…
You really made my day, thank you so much!
I had forgotten the LP title “2 Ounces of Plastic with a Hole in the Middle.”
I saw them locally live a number of times, proper Welsh Rock!!
You and me, both!
I listen to a mix of classical and pop traks on You Tube. This is one of my favourites
I also listen Tina Arina a lot.
It is - maybe they take a while to come through?
Fancy something understated, slightly pastoral and gentle, with beautiful harmonies? This should do.
Thanks for reminding me of that, it’s an excellent album (though very different from much else of Midlake’s musical output).
Switched to the CD in the car for the first time in months and this randomly came on (brief outing to the tip, not the seaside!). It’s 9mins+ so I had to go round the block again to let it play out. I’d taken our 3 year old daughter with me to give mum a brief break. Not sure she was so impressed, but got to start the musical education at some point!
Listening to Aqualung by Jethro Tull in the background while working. Brilliant. Thanks @Ewan for reacquainting me with Spotify…
‘Thick as a brick’ next…
Ace. Don’t forget A Passion Play too - hell of a trip…literally.
Sergiu Celibidache conducting the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra in Bruckner’s 8th Symphony.
I think it depends on what you mean by “best”. In terms of the songs i think others are better, but in terms of all-round cohesion you could be right.
Though how about side 2 of the white album?
Basically others (Revolver, Abbey Road side 1) would be contenders too, if it weren’t for the “Beatles formula” (ie Ringo’s songs )
But then maybe the charm of the Beatles resides precisely in the evident imperfection of their work?
Funny how Sgt Pepper is now so deeply unfashionable!
No Ringo songs in A Hard Days Night! Either side
OK, but no one would put any of the albums before “Help!” in a “Best Beatles album” selection!
No one else I think you’ll find…
