Whats on your turntable tonight?

For me its the first or very early LP's of:
Allman Brothers - "Allman Joys" "Idyllwild South"
Santana - "Santana" 200 g reissue
Emerson Lake and Palmer - "Emerson Lake and Palmer"
Beethoven - "Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Major" Rudolph Serkin/Ozawa/BSO

i hadn't listened to moon martin for a long while, so i cranked up his greatest hits last night. reminds me a lot of steve miller--sorta generic, w/throwaway lyrics, but a knack for the big pop hook--a lot of these songs stay embedded in your cranium.

current faves:

myracle brah, can you feel the myracle brah--not a paragon of depth or vision, but the guy is a melodic savant

the church, a box of bees (their cover of the monkees' "porpoise song" is great)

neil young, psychedelic pill--i always like his noisy, jammy stuff, of which there's plenty here.


Other than Rolene, I’d never heard anything else. So today I’m going through some of his albums now.

Thanks for the tip.😁

@curiousjim A friend had mentioned hearing “Rolene” on the radio the other day and prompted me to play some Moon Martin…like @loomisjohnson, I hadn’t played his music in like, forever. I don’t know why, as @bdp24 said, it’s “fantastic”.
