Jim Capaldi – Whale Meat Again
Island Records ltd. 1974

De menselijke geest is een vreemd iets. Hoe vaak het me
niet gebeurt dat er ‘s nachts muziekjes en bijbehorende
muzikanten door m’n hoofd spoken. Soms komt dat door-
dat je, de avond of dag ervoor, iets gehoord hebt. Soms ook
zijn het dingen zoals deze. De plaat die ik vandaag post is
er een die ik in geen jaren beluisterd had. En toch komt ie
dan op een of andere manier in het brein naar voren. Jim
Capaldi was een van de leden van Traffic. In mijn ochtend
dromen kwamen hij en Steve Winwood vooral tevoorschijn.
Steve is op deze plaat ook van de partij. Samen schreven zij
de meeste nummers voor Traffic. Lees meer over de heren
in hun Wikipedia pagina’s ..
P.S. Nergens wordt een woord gerept over
het piepkleine nummer 8, We’ll meet again ..

The human mind is a strange thing. How often it happens
to me that I dream of certain music and the musicians con-
cerned. Sometimes it is because you have heard something
the night or day before. But it also occurs it concerns a record
like the one we have here. A record that I had not listened to
for ages. Still it pops up in your mind somehow. Jim Capaldi
was one of the original members of the band Traffic. In my
morning dreams he and Steve Winwood were mainly there.
Steve is also present on this album. Together they wrote
the majority of Traffic’s songs. Read more about the
gentlemen on their Wiki pages ..
P.S. Nowhere mentioned is the
tiny track #8, We’ll meet again ..

Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band
Clear Spot, Reprise Records 1972

Listening to Captain Beefheart in my car yesterday made me
record this album today. After a period of psychadelic and
experimental music, the captain returned to his own brand
of bluesrock. We had the groundbreaking ‘Trout Mask Replica’
and the more commercial ‘Unconditionally Guaranteed’ so far.
This record is more or less in the middle of those, both chrono-
logically as style-wise. I was still very young at this time in 1972
and learned about the captain way later. Always fascinated by
his typical vocal style and weirdness I became a fan half way
the seventies. Read Don Van Vliet’s bulky Wikipedia pages
to learn more about the man’s work and life ..

Nadat ik gisteren wat Captain Beefheart in de auto had geluis-
terd besloot ik vandaag weer eens iets van hem te posten. Na
een periode van psychedelische en experimentele muziek keerde
‘the captain’ terug naar zijn eigen bluesrock stijl in 1972. We
hadden tot dusver reeds het surrealistische ‘Trout Mask Replica’
en het meer commerciele ‘Unconditionally Guaranteed’. Deze LP
zat daar tussenin, zowel chronologisch als qua stijl. Ik was nog
erg jong ten tijde van deze plaat en leerde hem pas jaren later
kennen. Gefascineerd door zijn aparte manier van zingen en
vreemde melodieën werd ik een liefhebber rond de midden
jaren zeventig. Lees Don Van Vliet’s lijvige Wikipedia pagina

Re-Post
Rebel Sunday – Various Artists

It was in may 2014 I made this compilation especially for the GG.
I just discovered it has mysteriously disappeared however. Why
and how ? .. you tell me, I have no idea. The compilation contains
6 of my favourite 12″ singles from the eighties, six singles with
tracks I used to play a lot in those days. Over the years more of
my precious posts have vanished strangely, if you remember
one that is gone too, please remind me so I can Re-Post it.
A pure coincidence I find out on a sunday by the way.
Also pure coincidental is the presence of track # 13,
Nothing to do with the fact that
tomorrow is Blue Monday,
better take # 6 ..

Het moet in de maand mei van 2014 geweest zijn dat ik ‘m heb
gepost. Ik kwam er echter zojuist achter dat ook deze post op
mysterieuze wijze van de GG is verdwenen. De compilatie bevat
zes van mijn favoriete 12″ singles, zes singels die ik in die tijd veel
plachtte te draaien. Zo door de jaren zijn er meerdere posts op
vreemde wijze verdwenen. Mocht jij je er een herrinneren die
weg is, als je het me meldt plaats ik ‘m direkt opnieuw.
Puur toeval dat ik dit op zondag ontdek overigens.
Ook puur toeval is de aanwezigheid van track # 13,
niets te maken met het feit dat het
morgen blue monday is,
beter is # 6 ..

Eergisteren hadden we ‘Hot Violins’, vandaag nog zo’n uitgave

tachtig uitbracht. Z’n titel zegt alles, Silly Songs. Vanaf vandaag

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 ..

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 ..

Yes folks, as blogpal Gerrit already predicted, the first Mothers of Invention
did not provoke any reactions except for his own. Meanwhile we continue
