I remember as a kid loving the Beatles and putting this LP on and... taking it off again after about ten minutes. Pretty much how I feel about it now, too.
You're ABSOLUTELY NUTS if you think All Things Must Pass is a bad album. Turn in your Beatles card at the door, sir.

The Byrds making it into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a criminal act. Cover bands are of no artistic merit. It is incredibly difficult to screw up Bob Dylan songs, and I don't think they did anything so ground-breaking that merits them a place in Rock and Roll eternity.
Come on, man. Roger McGuinn was one of the first to make the 12-string sing.

It's the bit on piano, ding ding ding ding dinggg, etc.
"Bad" by U2??

(Nov 18, 2003 - 06:55)
Interesting trivia: did you know Abbey Road was the last Beatles album to be recorded?
Great trivia question - I stump people with that one all the time. 8O The tracks from Let It Be were recorded earlier but were compiled into an album after Abbey Road was released because the Beatles had broken up and they wanted to go out on a better note.

Bravo. Unfortunately, I think "kids" today are numb to the system we fought in the 70's and 80's.

But somehow it all works!
If you listen to "Hurricane", there is a point where the whole band completely loose the beat.
Priceless. You just wouldnt hear that nowadays.
Al Kooper, who now teaches at Berklee College of Music, had never played the organ before this song. Dylan asked him to stand in (he was a bass player) and he just banged away. I agree with you - that's what makes some of the "old" music so special. :)

Gram Parsons is floating around in that information bank somewhere...I think the Stones covered it off ...who? please somone set me straight.
Jagger abnd Richards are the songwriters of record, but there's an old rumor floating around that it was actually written by the Flying Burrito Brothers. Parsons has always claimed Jagger and Richards were the authors.

|Wow - a lot of negative comments and lower-than-usual ratings on this song! I would agree that Neil Young is an acquired taste, much like Dylan, but the complete delivery of the music shines through. At the very least, you can understand the message. The last thing I want is some overwashed, technobabble that is created in a lab rather than in a studio. I'll take a Neil Young song any day of the week. :)|

(May 22, 2003 - 11:25)
|A few years ago, my friends and our families were vacationing at the Mt. Washington hotel in NH. All the menfolk decided to retire to this lovable, grungy basement crypt/bar and enjoy a few drinks. There was this local guy playing Dead tunes on his guitar and everyone was having a good time. Someone gets up to use the men's room and he passes by the beautiful people's lounge where there's a TV. He notices that Jerry Garcia had just died and he comes back into the bar and says "too bad about Jerry" to the guitarist. He didn't know! He looked like someone had shot his dog. I thought the guy was putting us on but then he started to cry! All that time we thought it was a tribute to Jerry. It was probably one of those "moments" in his life that he'll never forget (...where were you when...) and he had the news broken to him by a bunch of bozos who could have cared less about the whole scene. Wierd. |
