Stereo HiFi was a relatively new concept back when this was released, and as such it fell victim to many gimmicky mixes designed to take advantage of both channels.

You make it sound like using both channels is a bad thing. I like putting on a pair of headphones and rocking out to mixes like this. It kinda sucks if you're deaf in one ear though.

I'm trying to figure out where you are coming from here. Sharon Jones is American. The Dap-Kings are American. The record label (Daptone Records) is American. I believe the recording studio is in Brooklyn, although I can't confirm that. Why do you say that it is made in the UK?

|The Beatles - You Never Give Me/The End|
(Nov 09, 2007 - 11:16)
the Cistine Chapel of music! forgive my ignorance, but what is the translation in Sun King...is it Portugese and what does it mean?? anyone???
John Lennon, in 1969 said, "We just started joking, you know, singing `quando para mucho.' So we just made up... Paul knew a few Spanish words from school, you know. So we just strung any Spanish words that sounded vaguely like something. And of course we got `chicka ferdy' in, a Liverpool expression. "Chicka ferdy" could also be a combination Spanish/Liverpudlian pun "chica verde" or just like `na-na, na-na-na'-- "as one child would say to taunt another." `Cake and eat it' is another nice line too, because they have that in Spanish-- 'Que' or something, and eat it." In this song, The Beatles freely mixed dialects and languages here, (Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese) and when this is combined with less than perfect enunciation and accent, many uncertainties arise, leading to many possible interpretations.

|Beck - Beautiful Way|
(Oct 17, 2007 - 08:16)
Start at the start. Mellow Gold is a great freshman effort, although crazy raw and pretty hardcore. Mutations is a totally beautiful album, as is Sea Change. One Foot in the Grave is a great quirky collection of devotional & bluegrass style. Midnite Vultures is pure re-invention of Sly & Family Stone meets a latex-clad dominatrix.
Have fun!..Beck is super talented.
Not a fan of Odelay?

Apparently in neurological rehabilitation after suffering two cerebral haemorrhages. See Wikipedia.
|Kasabian - Ovary Stripe|
(Feb 07, 2006 - 09:29)
|I'm sensing a theme here. Songs that sound like they were composed from 1980s video games. Is Beck next?|
|Beck - Qué Onda Guero|
(Feb 03, 2006 - 10:27)
That was probably the most jarring transition (from Aretha's "Think" to this) I have ever heard on RP
I totally agree. I like both songs, but the transition was disturbing.
|The Beatles - Tomorrow Never Knows|
(Nov 18, 2005 - 07:13)
|I have never heard this before, and I have to say it is not something I would have expected from the Beatles. Nice!|
|Los Lobos - Angel Dance|
(Nov 09, 2005 - 11:14)
Glad I wasn't the only one to hear Steve....
God, I LOVE these guys!
I'm with you on both counts.
|The Call - I Still Believe|
(Sep 30, 2005 - 07:09)
OK, you can stop this one now...
it was cute and all the first time... but...
That's odd. I'm bumping up my rating on the second listen.
|Pink Floyd - Have A Cigar|
(Sep 22, 2005 - 14:19)
|If you don't own this album, click on that Amazon link and buy it already. You will not be disappointed.|
|The Byrds - So You Want To Be A Rock 'n' Roll Star|
(Sep 22, 2005 - 14:18)
Odd Question: is this a remix ?
I hear a horn on the left speaker, I never remember that.
could be that I spun the vinyl so many times I wore the horns off
Do I have my headphones on backwards? I only hear the horn in my right ear.
|Manu Chao - Bongo Bong|
(Sep 21, 2005 - 11:07)
|I was listening to this one, and I don't think I actually heard any bongo playing going on. Did I miss something?|
|Beck - Scarecrow|
(Sep 21, 2005 - 11:06)
|This has to be Beck's best impersonation of himself. I mean, this has to be the first time I've heard a song and thought "This guy sounds a lot like Beck", only to find out that it was him.|
|Rolling Stones - Driving Too Fast|
(Sep 16, 2005 - 08:13)
|Wow, there sure are a lot of negative feelings about this album. It sounds like a lot of classic Stones music to me, and it definitely got me moving. I actually had to click on the link to find out that it was from the latest album--is there a bit of bias based on that information?|
|Peter Gabriel - Games Without Frontiers|
(Sep 16, 2005 - 07:54)
I always thought it was "She's so popular".
You're not alone. "Jeux sans frontières" makes much more sense though. :-k
I don't really like Peter Gabriel's stuff too much, but this one would be good if I didn't hear it so often. It's not RP's fault though.
|Oliver Mtukudzi - Ndima Ndapedza|
(Sep 16, 2005 - 07:43)
|I liked it at the start, but it just seems to drag on. It seems very repetitive to me, without really going anywhere.|
|Supertramp - School|
(Sep 15, 2005 - 13:13)
Pet peeve: people who rhyme 'school' with 'golden rule'.
Sorry, but in my dialect those two words do rhyme.
|Neville Brothers - Congo Square|
(Aug 26, 2005 - 11:41)
Man, that is SOME funky drum solo. uh huh. Dig it.
I think that was the best part--it really got me moving in my chair.
|Big Head Todd & The Monsters - Tangerine|
(Aug 26, 2005 - 10:57)
According to some things I have read, this song (Tangerine) is the foundation for 'Stairway to Heaven'.
I can definitely believe that, and I haven't even heard the original.
|Doves - Someday Soon|
(Aug 09, 2005 - 07:19)
This reminds me of Peter Gabriel somehow. Or actually, more like the Blue Nile. Anyway, I think I like it.....
Peter Gabriel was the first thing that came to mind when I heard this one. Glad I'm not alone.
|R.E.M. - Strange Currencies|
(Aug 03, 2005 - 12:14)
|"The Fool" might be my middle name, but I'd be foolish not to say this one is awesome. |
|Beck - Hell Yes|
(May 17, 2005 - 12:32)
is this rap or is it hip hop(?) or what's the diff???
It's Beck. Couldn't you tell by the harmonica?
|Billy Idol - Lady Do or Die|
(May 10, 2005 - 10:55)
I wonder how this song would rate with the listeners here if RP hid the fact that it was Billy Idol.
I'll betcha that once people see Billy Idols's name attached, it automatically gets blasted like a Pavlov's dog reaction.
I didn't need read anything to tell me that it was Billy Idol. That doesn't change my rating one bit. <-X
|Beck - Girl|
(Apr 15, 2005 - 11:28)
|Love those Commodore 64 sound effects. That's it, I'm going to buy this baby.|
|Division Kent - All You Fantasized|
(Apr 15, 2005 - 10:46)
|Wow, this one is all over the place. Take a bunch of different conflicting sounds, put them in a food processor set on high, and pour the resultant mass through your headphones and you'll have a similar effect.|
|Big Head Todd & The Monsters - Bittersweet|
(Mar 18, 2005 - 12:28)
|This one does drag on a bit, doesn't it. I stopped paying attention, and when I refocused, I realized that I was still hearing the same words over and over again.|
|The Beeps - Surf's Up|
(Mar 18, 2005 - 10:51)
|Wow, this song has this great manic feeling, and then the trombone (is that what it is?) hits and ruins everything.|
|Pete Yorn - Murray|
(Mar 17, 2005 - 10:28)
|I thought I heard it skip near the end. Was that just me?|
|Ashley MacIsaac - Sleepy Maggie|
(Nov 24, 2004 - 04:40)
without disputing anything about the original comment (oh no! the gayness might be contagious!), I think you're being needlessly pedantic about his language. many of us in our late 20s and beyond still use "boys" and "girls" to refer to ourselves and our friends and lovers. you can be needlessly pedantic and psychoanalytic about *that* if you wish, but I'm quite certain you're just trolling the original poster, and I'm responding to the troll. :-)
However, the original poster may have indeed meant "boys". Take a look at his entry on Wikipedia.
|Cake - Wheels|
(Oct 28, 2004 - 12:27)
|Hey, this is much different from the Cake I'm used to hearing. I like it. |
|Chris Isaak - Two Hearts|
(Oct 27, 2004 - 07:31)
|Hmmm... I think if I was going to play this in the same set as U2, I would choose Two Hearts Beat As One instead of Some Days Are Better Than Others.
Edit: Sorry, I guess it wasn't in the same set. My bad.
|Tom Petty - Breakdown|
(Oct 27, 2004 - 06:16)
|It sounds like Tom just went through dental surgery before recording this one. It's alright.|
|Sophie Zelmani - Once|
(Oct 26, 2004 - 08:18)
The male reminds me a bit of Leonard Cohen. The voices blend together nicely.
I'm not sure why, but it keeps making me think of David Bowie.
|Youngbloods - Get Together|
(Oct 22, 2004 - 11:38)
This song makes me want to beat a baby seal to death . . . .
Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to club one another right now
|Zombies - Time of the Season|
(Oct 22, 2004 - 11:17)
Who's your Daddy? :whip: Who's your Daddy? :whip:
My thoughts exactly. (pimp)
|William Shatner - Common People|
(Oct 20, 2004 - 12:45)
|Well now I have heard everything. 8O
Sing along with the common people! I forgot about this song. I can't say I enjoy Bill's spoken word version.
|Muddy Waters - Howling Wolf|
(Sep 28, 2004 - 10:56)
|Well whaddya know... My Muddy Waters CDs just arrived from Amazon today, and who do I hear on RP but the King Bee himself. 8) |
|Fairport Convention - Matty Groves|
(Apr 29, 2004 - 08:05)
Wow - great mix!! I'm surprised at the mixed reactions -- well Anglo pentatonic melodies were never considered mainstream, maybe.
I know if I listen to too much of this I might become catatonic.
A little bit is okay though.
|Leonard Cohen - The Future|
(Apr 23, 2004 - 10:56)
need new copy!...static destroys the otherwise terrific experience 8-<
That's just his voice. 8O
|Simon & Garfunkel - Mrs. Robinson|
(Apr 22, 2004 - 10:45)
|Most good songs get overplayed on the radio. This one was overplayed within the context of a film. I can't say I like it as much after watching The Graduate. It's still good though.|
|White Stripes - The Hardest Button To Button|
(Apr 16, 2004 - 10:47)
Although they seem to have borrowed elements from several of the classic rock sounds of the '60s and '70s (does anyone else keep getting sudden flashbacks to BOC songs while listening to WS?), the resultant mix is, I find, pleasing and quite refreshing. The band becomes all the more intriguing when one becomes aware that it consists of a total of two members: some young English dude and his younger sister, who plays the DRUMS, of all things! Now is that original or what???
... Except for the fact that they are from Detroit.
|Victoria Williams - Crazy Mary|
(Apr 14, 2004 - 09:07)
This is Dolly Parton with another name right???Right?
Gotta be. The backup vocals are tolerable though.
|Guster - Window|
(Dec 10, 2003 - 08:04)
|Have these guys considered going instrumental?
Things sounded good until the voices came in.
|Bobs - White Room|

|This is the first time I've actually had music make me feel physically ill. :puke: |
|Giraffes - Gone Again Gone|
(Nov 19, 2003 - 06:44)
Tongue in cheek, reminds me of Primus somehow. Isn't this somehow related to Presidents of the United States of America?
When I heard this come on, it immediately made me think of PUSA. It looks like you're right.
|XTC - Dear God|
(Nov 13, 2003 - 11:21)
|Outstanding. I thought I was going to hear this on the radio yesterday but it ended up being a different song. This makes up for my disappointment.|
|Cracker - Shine|
(Oct 27, 2003 - 13:42)
Not only are you going to shine, but someday you'll be guarded by monkeys.
And you'll be like Burt Bacharach. :-?
|Dave Matthews - Stay Or Leave|
(Oct 27, 2003 - 13:24)
|I can't believe parts of this make me think of Coldplay. That's almost enough to make me turn it off. Oh, and I don't need to hear Dave Matthews more than once per 6 hours.|
|Elastica - 2:1|
(Oct 24, 2003 - 09:02)
|I haven't listened to Elastica in years. Thanks for the memories.
|Los Lobos - Good Morning Aztlan|
(Oct 24, 2003 - 06:58)
This song should be renamed the official friday song!!!!!
Totally agree. I was being lulled to sleep in the last set and this is enough to get me going. Must be the time difference ... if I was on RP time it would be 7 am. As it is, it's 10 am and I should be working. :-)
|Dick Dale - Ghost Riders In The Sky|
(Oct 21, 2003 - 19:24)
I'm with you on that. It started out pretty cool and then just turned
into a self praising Dick Dale showcase.
|The Beatles - Come Together|
(Oct 21, 2003 - 18:55)
I had the misfortune of working at a certain company that used this song in their advertizing. Kinda spoiled it for me.
That wasn't a certain networking company, was it?
|Robert Palmer - Some Like It Hot |
(Sep 26, 2003 - 08:16)
|What a shame to lose anyone at such a young age. I may not have appreciated his music, but his accomplishments are worthy of respect. |
|Nirvana - Polly|
(Sep 25, 2003 - 08:51)
reminds me of John Fowles' novel "The Collector." same premise.
Yes, I hadn't thought of that before, but now that you mention it ... you're right. :-)
|R.E.M. - Driver 8|
(Sep 24, 2003 - 14:41)
Driver 8 was originally from 'Fables of the Reconstruction.' 'Eponymous' i.e., (of being, or related to)was their "Greatest Hits Album" , at least thats what Yoda told me, he did. (pimp)
You are correct, sir. Eponymous was the first R.E.M. album I ever bought. I remember the liner notes had short descriptions of the songs, and the reason why they were chosen.
|R.E.M. - Belong|
(Sep 24, 2003 - 12:44)
|I love Out of Time, but Belong is not my favourite track. Actually, at the end, I found that I really wanted to hear Half a World Away.|
|R.E.M. - Bittersweet Me|
(Sep 18, 2003 - 08:32)
This is by far the best song on New Adventures, which is IMO second or third from the bottom of the list of REM albums. This and "Leave" are the only songs on New Adventure that are really make me wanna get up and cheer.
I really don't get how people don't like Monster (re: comments that this was an improvement after Monster). Maybe I'm biased because my tastes are largely a product of the early 90's alt-rock movement and like REM's attempt to fit in, but I never get tired of hearing Monster. Not a lot of "WOW" singles, but a solid, consistent album (unlike New Adventures).
I think the biggest issue with Monster (which is not a terrible album by any definition of the term) is that it seems like a let down after the heights of Automatic for the People. Monster is also a departure from classical R.E.M. style, and a departure of that sort is guaranteed to generate animosity.
|Dolly Parton - Shine|
(Sep 16, 2003 - 12:14)
Woah -- she really brings something new to the table on this song. Pretty cool.
What she brings is a little bit too twangy for my taste. Sorry.
|Outback - Baka|
(Sep 16, 2003 - 10:02)
Make it stop! The first 500 minutes is good, but after that....
Hmm... you must have heard the radio edit.
|Luciano - Which Man|
(Sep 15, 2003 - 11:10)
|I've been hearing lots of new stuff today, but this one just doesn't cut it
for me. Yes, it's eclectic, but it just doesn't seem coherent to me.
The collection of instruments and sounds just don't jive. My two cents.
|John Hiatt - Pirate Radio|
(Sep 15, 2003 - 08:00)
It totally must be a Hoosier thing...this is the first song (Pirate Radio) of John Hiatt's that I've heard...it's a really catchy tune. Good choice!
It must be. As far as I'm concerned, this guy can't sing! (But he can still sing better than me).
|Radiohead - Sail To The Moon|
(Sep 12, 2003 - 06:45)
Coldplay --- Radiohead.....??? .are they in fact two different groups? or is it just one of those acts that put out music under different names....?
they are too much alike for my tastes......
I disagree entirely. Radiohead has talent.
Radiohead is art. If they are alike, Coldplay is a pale imitation.
|Terri Hendrix - Long Time Coming|
(Sep 08, 2003 - 12:23)
Perhaps my ear is getting old, many current female singers have that "almost breathless" sound. What's really weird - I like it no matter who the singer, no matter what the song.
It must be the chain-smoking. :P
|Dave Matthews - Gravedigger|
(Sep 04, 2003 - 11:42)
|This one is really growing on me.
I don't care much for the acoustic version which can also be heard
around here, but I really dig this one.
|Great Big Sea - When I'm Up|
(Sep 03, 2003 - 13:24)
|A nice pick-me-up after a few sleep-inducing tunes.
I can't get down now! :bananabanger:
|R.E.M. - Crush with Eyeliner|
(Sep 02, 2003 - 14:07)
this is my least favourite album of their ENTIRE catalog
Worse than Dead Letter Office? This album was a lot of fun, as far as I'm concerned.
|Béla Fleck - Michelle|
(Sep 02, 2003 - 13:06)
|Sucko-barfo. This is an experience that I don't need to relive.
|The Beatles - And Your Bird Can Sing|
(Aug 29, 2003 - 11:18)
|I love the guitar on this song. I've never heard it before
and it really picked me up for a few minutes this afternoon. 8)
|Coldplay - Warning Sign|
(Aug 29, 2003 - 11:03)
|If I ever see Coldplay in person, I'm going to give them
my own warning sign.
|The Dandy Warhols - Scientist|
(Aug 28, 2003 - 12:34)
|Looks like RP is trying to play as much Dandy Warhols
as Audioslave. It's good that I like the sound of both
(at least until they're overplayed).
|Dave Matthews - Gravedigger|
(Aug 28, 2003 - 11:52)
Am I the only person in the world that thinks DM can't sing?? Oh well... I'm not a fan of DMB, I've tried to listen to them, but I just don't like 'em.
You're not the only one, but I enjoy the sound of his voice. Bob Dylan can't/couldn't sing either but that doesn't stop people from enjoying his music.
|Coldplay - Clocks|
(Aug 28, 2003 - 10:36)
I HATE COLDPLAY! No fr*gging MÁS!!! Would that Coldplay AND Nora Jones would crawl under their respective rocks and return to obscurity once and for ALL!!! OY!
I totally agree. How one could follow up The Beatles with this tripe is beyond me.
|R.E.M. - Electrolite|
(Aug 28, 2003 - 08:32)
Isn't that Maryanne Faithful on E-Bow The Letter? Unless you're referring to a different song.
Nope. It was Stipe's idol, Patti Smith.
|Air - Talisman|
(Aug 28, 2003 - 08:01)
|This one totally belongs on a 007 movie soundtrack. The combination of sounds is way out there. 8) |
|Talking Heads - Seen And Not Seen|
(Aug 28, 2003 - 07:11)
Wow, someone else in the world who knows of Brian Eno
, and yes it is -- not a bad thing either
I don't think there are many music fans that don't know of Brian Eno.
But still ...
|Counting Crows - Omaha|
(Aug 27, 2003 - 08:30)
No other band comes to mind that has one song that I adore so much (Mr. Jones) but everything else makes me cringe.
That's funny ... Mr. Jones (and Round Here) makes me cringe, but I enjoy several of their other songs. I especially enjoy A Long December, but Omaha is also nice.
|Nena - 99 Luftballons|
(Aug 23, 2003 - 17:54)
At least 'captain kirk' is still the same.
So we get to hear both versions back to back, right... kind of a little german lesson.
I guess that would be true if the two were the same.
