Eric Clapton is a very overrated musician. A tragedy really — he is an incredible guitar player and a master of his blues techniques. But he wastes all his talents on sappy, listless love songs and crap like that. Really inane crap. He is, after you peel away all the layers, just an overblown studio musican who happened to become more than he should have been due to his being in the right places at the right times.....
I pretty much agree.

Ahhhh I thought i recognised the song :D Good cool song good cool film... Was it the band playing on stage? Or were they actors miming?
Everything I have heard was that is was the band. Great Band

sure sounds like poe.
I didn't wait long enough...I am positive it's Poe now

|This is my least favorite SRV song, and I still gave it a high rating at somepoint. I must have to be in the right mood for this one.|
|Paul McCartney - Fine Line|
(Oct 07, 2005 - 08:33)
This guy sounds like he's trying to sound like the Beatles or something.
I'd say he's only about a quarter of the way there.
|Colin Hay - If I Go|
(Sep 03, 2005 - 13:34)
|Did anyone else think this sounded like it was from a Karate Kid movie?|
|Mazzy Star - Into Dust|

|I hear a strong resemblance to Haights Take it down. That is a good thing.|
|Eels - Woman Driving, Man Sleeping|
(Jun 24, 2005 - 17:34)
This is a song I associate with getting to know RP, about 3 years ago. An RP classic!
Hey, Me too.
|Poe - Wild|
(Jun 16, 2005 - 13:44)
I have to say I don't understand why Bill doesn't always play this song all the way through. RP is very indulgent of a lot of long-format stuff that isn't as good as this. Everytime I hear this song here and it stops midway through, I feel cheated.
On a related note: This is a very well-crafted album from beginning to end, and really rewards a full listen. I wonder if once or twice a week RP could play an album all the way through? There are great albums out there that are more than the sum of their parts. If it was done at the same day & time every week, I would definitely put it on my weekly schedule.
I was actually really disappointed with extra's on this song when I bought this album.
|Bob Marley - Misty Morning|
(Jun 11, 2005 - 07:07)
Well said , Mugro...Sometimes the cultural differences are so deep that people just don't even make an effort trying to understand and hear the beauty
Well actually I have tried to like Reggae. I listen when ever it's on to see if there is something I like. Alas very rarely do I. I am not saying it is bad music. I am sayin it is bad music for me.
|Dar Williams - After All|
(Jun 09, 2005 - 14:29)
|Anyone else think this sounds like a Janis Ian song. I would have thought that's who this was if Bill hadn't said something.|
|Bob Marley - Misty Morning|
(May 27, 2005 - 14:59)
|I can't stand Marley. All the songs sound the same to me. Not much of a Reggae fan in general, because they all seem to use the same rhythm and guitar sound. But to each there own.|
|Rubyhorse - Long Time Coming|
(May 20, 2005 - 16:30)
Sounds a lot like the Devlins Waiting
Ok I'm not kidding it is almost note for note. Even some of the lead guitar part is the same.
|Grey Eye Glances - Close Your Eyes|
(May 19, 2005 - 09:31)
And all my days are trances,
And all my nightly dreams
Are where thy grey eye glances,
From "To One in Paradise" Edgar Allan Poe
That is my all time favorite poem.

So anyway...may be can all get on with the one true universal truth taught by all great prophets from Jesus, to Buddha and Mohammad: Love they neighbor and boogie down! :D/
|Miles Davis - The Pan Piper|
(May 07, 2005 - 07:05)
|Hmmm....I think Oi Va Voi stole their vocal line for Refugee directly from Miles' trupet line. I thought it was a instrumental version of that song at first.|
|Morphine - Whisper|
(Apr 07, 2005 - 23:31)
I'm all for fretless bass, but most of the time it sounds like he's tuning up a new set of strings.
He used a huge slide on his two string bass.
|Catie Curtis - The Night|
(Apr 01, 2005 - 19:47)
agreed. the original is the best.
Yeah her voice lends a little to much hope to this song. Sandman's just gave it a completely different feel, a little more desperate.
|Rabbi Shergill - Bulla Ki Jana|
(Apr 01, 2005 - 19:22)
I want to hear more like this on RP!
sorry I would like to hear less like this on RP. Just my opinion.
|Eric Clapton - The Core|
(Mar 26, 2005 - 05:00)
A must-have album for everyone's collection! Great guitar work on this cut!
I actually thought the guitar work was pretty average, but I tend to think most of Claptons guitar work is nothing special.
|Cowboy Junkies - Powderfinger|
(Mar 19, 2005 - 05:07)
I'm only 10 minutes into it, but I like the 3 notes I've heard so far. When the first bar finishes, later tonight, I'll know more.
|Béla Fleck - Gravity Wheel|
(Dec 12, 2004 - 04:17)
|Boy did I want to hear The Waifs start sing during the intro to this. Then it just kinda went all wrong. Lite Jazz something or other. Has a great beginning though.|
|U2 - Love And Peace Or Else|
(Dec 12, 2004 - 03:56)
Art... music.. IS political. If it were not, it would lose it's capacity to evoke discourse, even a moment's ponder. That you may disagree with the socio-political stance of Bono does not in itself make him an idiot. Rather, that you would deem to comment upon his stance means that his art is efffective... it caused you to ponder and respond. Is U2 plotical? Well, you too.
Just because something is thought provoking does not make it political. Only when you try to get someone else to agree with your thoughts does it become politcal.
Politics or not I am getting more than a little sick of Bono. They should just do instrumentals.
|Grateful Dead - Help On The Way/Franklin's Tower|
(Dec 12, 2004 - 03:20)
Of people who hate the Grateful Dead, they can generally be divided into two groups:
The first group is made of people who really just don't like the music -- and that's fine. There is no music that exists that pleases every single person. Even the Beatles just don't do it for some people.
Then there is the group who hates the Grateful Dead just because they think they are supposed to hate the Grateful Dead.
Actualy this Track falls into two Groups for me, Like most Dead music. The first have just does nothing other than slightly annoy. The second half I could listen to for a very long time. I have found that most of their music falls into one of these two groups for me.
|Fleming & John - I Fall for You|
(Dec 11, 2004 - 05:17)
|Funny. I like the other song they have on RP, But I can't stand this. It reminds me of Janice from Friends singing. Or something??|
|The Call - I Still Believe|
(Aug 28, 2004 - 03:59)
For those of you that asked... yes, this is on The Lost Boys soundtrack, but I do believe (no pun intended) that it was a cover of this, not the original.
No I believe it was the original. I had the sound track when I was 14 and wore it out. This is it exactly.
|Archive - Conscience|
(Aug 21, 2004 - 01:02)
|DIVE, DIVE DIVE!!!! That sound in the bakcground is killing me |
|Greg Brown - Lull it By|
(Aug 20, 2004 - 00:25)
Greg is an acquired taste, somewhat akin to Dylan. I can't stand Dylan but others revere him. I like Greg while others loathe him. Different strokes for different folks.
I like that RP plays stuff that might not appeal to me but appeals to others. I'll put up with the bad stuff (IMHO) in order to hear the good stuff, some of which I might not necessarily have on CD/LP.
My feelings exactly
|Tori Amos - Upside Down|
(Jul 10, 2004 - 03:13)
|From Beethoven's Fur Elise to this was great. Love her or hate her that was utter brilliance Bill. :D |
|Barenaked Ladies - Be My Yoko Ono|
(Jun 25, 2004 - 18:58)
Great stuff... any BNL is good BNL... and this is classic stuff. BNL are just great musicians. They give you a reason to laugh every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with that. Their albums have moments of humor, sadness, excitement, and expression. Such is life. :D Every one of their songs is a jewel in my opinion.
I guess they're not for everybody, but BNL gets my thumbs up.
Well said. :highfive:
|Paul Simon - Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes|
(Sep 15, 2003 - 09:09)
Quite obviously I'm a musical freak or oddity of some sort. I cannot stand Paul Simon. It started with 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover. Since then, there has been absolutely nothing this man can do that makes any difference to me.
All apologies to the Simon worshipers.
I completely agree. I find myself getting angry when he comes on.
|Tito & Tarantula - Sweet Cycle|
(Aug 28, 2003 - 09:30)
A great band that has been overlooked by everyone but their fans. F.Y.I., they were the first band on stage in that goofy movie, Roadhouse with Pat Swazye (sp?) before the Jeff Healy band came on. :D
They were also the the band on stage in the dusk till dawn movie.

I completly agree. But he does write some amazing songs. Just don't let him sing them.

I completely agree.
|Harry Manx - good morning stranger|
(Apr 03, 2002 - 07:03)
|The rest of the album is pretty good. It has kind of a live performance feel to it. without the crowd noise. Quite a few traditional type songs.|

I completley agree with you
