    Van Morrison: Latest Record Project Volume 1 review – depressing rants by tinfoil milliner

    In regards to the Doors tune, I stand corrected. (Can't remember things as I once did, damn oldtimers...) Oedipus, well stated... Ya I read the reviews on the 5-songs that received early release, the single with Clapton & the covid nature of the songs didn't do well. I read that Van...

    Van Morrison: Latest Record Project Volume 1 review – depressing rants by tinfoil milliner

    Big fan of Van the Man. Mrs Grungy & I have been Pfizered. We live in the bush so covid isolation hasn't changed much of what we do. Every artist puts out a stinker, says things from left field, no big deal. I don't have to agree with them but I don't take issue. I recall a famous bands not...

    Revisiting the YES catalog. Let's discuss...

    Yep the whole catalogue, studio & the majority of the live stuff, plus a few duplicate reissues that have added songs. Don't care what era, who's in the band, I listen to them all.

    John Lennon. Brutal.

    Yes. And before that. I don't think any one of us knows what it was like to take the world by storm, be a Beatle, how it affected their home & 20yr old personal lives. What ever happened to John or who ever else famous I will not take it personally but remain detached & just try to understand.

    John Lennon. Brutal.

    It's been well documented he left the crazy music world to stay @ home, be a father & be a husband. I would call that a more normal life.

    John Lennon. Brutal.

    Like most humans Lennon had his flaws but I believe he changed for the better once he left the stardom party behind him & started living a more normal life. I don't see myself as Lennon's or any other stars judge & jury, I like to listen to their music & not worry about their personal problems...

    Jackson Browne : "Somebody's Baby" from the Fast Times At Ridgemont High Movie (1982)

    They're all worth a listen. My favorites are The Pretender, Running on Empty. These were recorded at a time when there was lots of trauma, chaos in Brownes life, his wife had commit suicide, he was left to raise their infant son, obligations to go on big tours... I think his 1rst five albums...
