Ik zag een film waarin de begin tune van deze plaat voorkwam.
Direct de kast in gedoken om hem te rippen, wat een heerlijke
soulplaat. Ik kon niet onderdrukken hem met jullie te delen.
Down, deel en luister ernaar met veel plezier ..

I just saw a movie in which the opening song of this album passed
by. Dived into it straight away, what a delightful soul record it is.
I could not resist sharing it with you folks. I’d say
get it, spread it and listen with pleasure ..

Phil Manzanera – Diamond Head
Atco 1975

Phil Manzanera was most known as Roxy Music’s lead guitarist.
To me his solo albums always were favourite. Being the son of
a Colombian mother and an English father he was born in London
but lived in various South American countries during his childhood.
With artists like Robert Wyatt, Brian Eno and Andy Mackay and many
others. He worked with Steve Winwood, David Gilmour, John Cale,
Godley & Creme, Nico and John Wetton to name a few ..

Tim Buckley – Sefronia
Discreet 1974

Tim Buckley, jeff’s father, has been an idol since I first
laid my ears on his music late seventies. It all started
with Look at The Fool, his last album. Tim sadly died
after taking an overdose of heroin age 28, june 29th,
1975. He started as a folk singer but his style changed
to soul, jazz, psychadelica, avant-garde over the years.
One of the greatest voices ever in seventies pop music.

Halfnelson – Halfnelson
Bearsville / Warner Brothers 1971

In de categorie oude popplaten vandaag het debuutalbum
van de Sparks. In den beginne noemden ze zich nog Halfnelson,
de naam die al snel om commerciele redenen werd veranderd
in Sparks. Alleen dit eerste album is onder deze naam. Gepro-
duceerd door Todd Rundgren en een elpee die de broertjes
Russell en Ron Mael weinig tot geen succes bracht. Verder
met Earle en Jim Mankey en Harley Feinstein. Zelf heb ik
er altijd met plezier naar geluisterd ..

In our popmusic category today the debut album of the Sparks.
Back in 1971 they called themselves Halfnelson, a name they
changed in Sparks very quickly for commercial reasons. Only
the first album was released under this name. Produced by
Todd Rundgren and an elpee that didn’t bring fortune and
fame to the brothers Russell and Ron Mael. Also with Earle
and Jim Mankey and Harley Feinstein. Personally
I have always enjoyed it ..

The Mothers of Invention – Absolutely Free

Tja Gerrit, je zei het al, ik ben benieuwd hoeveel reacties je hierop
krijgt. Alleen jij kon je er nog mee identificeren kennelijk. Dit is echter
geen reden om mijn Zappa revival te cancelen. Het is december en dat
is de maand van nostalgische popplaten hier op de Global Groove. Hier
is dus deel twee in de Frank Zappa en de Mothers of Invention story.
Absolutely Free, een heerlijke uitspatting uit het jaar 1967, luister ..

The Mothers of Invention – Freak Out !
Verve 1966

Click on it !

..and now for something completely different.. These words
were famous of course through Monty Pythons Flying Circus.
Since small I was very much amused by everything out of
the ordinary, absurd, freaky if you will .. The music
of Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention came to me
when I was about 15 years old and it shook me. My first
encounter was with ‘Live at Fillmore East’ a live registration
that left me with red ears at that young age. My love for the
works of Frank Zappa was born. Later I managed to collect
most of his wonderful records. If you are young like I was
then, let me shock you a bit and let you hear the works of
this great musician. This is his very first from 1966.
Fasten your seatbelts and fly with the Mothers ..

..and now for something completely different.. Dit gezegde
werd beroemd door de jongens van Monty Pythons Flying
Circus. Vanaf jonge leeftijd werd ik altijd al blij van alles wat
baanbrekend anders was, lekker absurd en freaky als je wil..
De muziek van Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention
bereikte me op vijftien jarige leeftijd, het was de live plaat
‘Live at Fillmore East’ die me met rode oortjes achterliet.
Mijn liefde voor het werk van Frank Zappa was geboren.
Later wist ik de meeste van zijn geweldige elpees te be-
machtigen. Als jij nu zo jong bent als ik toen, laat me je
dan shockeren met de werken van deze grote musicus.
Dit is zijn allereerste uit 1966. Fasten your
seatbelts and fly with the Mothers ..

Tim Buckley – Look at the Fool
Discreet 1974

Om niet nader verklaarbare redenen duikt er altijd een gevoel
van nostalgie op zo tegen het eind van het jaar. Er komen platen
uit de kast die er al 30 of 40 jaar in staan. In 1974 maakte hij dit
album wat zijn laatste bleek te worden. Tim Buckley, de vader van
Jeff, nam een lijn coke dacht hij. Het bleek echter een cocktail van
heroine en morfine te zijn en werd hem fataal. Hij was slechts 28.
Tim’s unieke muziek was een mix van pop en soul en had een heel
eigen geluid. Zijn laatste plaat was de eerste die ik van hem hoorde
waarschijnlijk ergens in 1977, sindsdien ben ik altijd een groot fan
geweest. Hoog tijd dat hij zijn intrede maakt hier op de GG. Deze
zal ongetwijfeld navolging krijgen. Luister naar de magische
sound van Timothy Charles Buckley III, een cult held ..

Without explainable reason, around this time of year, a feeling
of nostalgia always pops up. Records that have been on the shelf
for 30 or 40 years come out and relive. In 1974 he made this album
which became his last one. Tim Buckley, Jeff’s father, thought he took
a line of coke. It appeared to be a cocktail of heroin and morfine and
killed him. He was only 28 years old. Tim’s unique musical style was
a mixture of pop, soul and avantgarde, funky and very much his own.
His last record was the first one I heard, probably somewhere in 1977.
I have been a huge fan eversince. High time his work is posted here
at the GG. It will be followed up without doubt. Listen to the magical
sound of Timothy Charles Buckley III, one of my all time heroes ..
