- “Can't you hear those cavalry drums
Hijacking your equilibrium
Midnight snacks in the mausoleum
Where the pixilated doctors moan”
Midnights Vultures, another Beck album that sounds nothing like any other Beck album!
- Thick as a Brick 2, abbreviated TAAB 2 and subtitled Whatever Happened to Gerald Bostock?, is the fifth studio album by #JethroTull frontman #IanAnderson, released in 2012 as a follow-up of #ThickasaBrick, Jethro Tull's highly acclaimed 1972 parody concept album. According to Anderson, #TAAB2 focuses on #GeraldBostock, the fictional boy genius author of the original album, forty years later. "I wonder what the eight-year-old Gerald Bostock would be doing today. Would the fabled newspaper still exist?" The follow-up album presents five divergent, hypothetical life stories for Gerald Bostock, including a greedy investment banker, a homosexual homeless man, a soldier in the Afghan War, a sanctimonious evangelist preacher, and a most ordinary man who (married and childless) runs a corner store; by the end of the album, however, all five possibilities seem to converge in a similar concluding moment of gloomy or pitiful solitude. In March 2012, to follow the style of the mock-newspaper cover (The St Cleve Chronicle and Linwell Advertiser) of the original Thick as a Brick album, an online newspaper was set up, simply titled StCleve. #nowspinning #vinyloftheday

- A Tribe Called Quest is just good for the soul, even better for the ears.
- Sinatra took Porter’s “I’ve Got You Under My Skin” and made it his own in a way very few artists ever do to a song. Coupled with Nelson Riddle’s timeless charts it is just about as perfect as three and half minutes of music can be.
- Record entry! Another album from Father John Misty: God’s Favorite Customer. This collection was another “love letter” from Tillman to his wife, though it seems to translate quite a bit differently from the album i previously shared. While “I Love You, Honeybear” has more of a honeymoon filter over it as he gushes over the loveliness of his bride, Tillman takes this album to delve more deeply into his own shortcomings or faults as a husband, often sharing his fears and lack of confidence in himself and life in general.
My favorite song from this album, “The Palace” is the perfect example of this. Told from a narrative perspective, it goes on to discuss ordinary day-to-day occurrences, occasionally breaking the monotony by interjecting Tillman’s own thoughts. The line “I’m in over my head” Seems so simple, but after hearing it repeated over and over again, by the end of the track it always feels like i was the one saying it all along.

- My Record Year - Day 112: From 1969 to 1980, Warner/Reprise Records sold - by mail order only - a series of promotional LPs called by what they were, “Loss Leaders.” If you own any Warner family of LPs from that era, you’ve probably seen them advertised on the inner sleeves of your albums. The two record sets sold for $2 each, and were a wildly eclectic collection of new B-sides, hits and a few that were unreleased. About 40 were issued. “Hard Goods,” which came out in 1974, is a great example. You can check out the full artist and song lists in photo 3, but here’s a sampler of bands juxtaposed on this vinyl gem: Graham Central Station, Foghat, Frank Zappa, the Marshall Tucker Band, Seals & Crofts, Robin Trower, Leo Sayer, Montrose, Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes, Deep Purple; Denver, Boise & Johnson (the final iteration of the former Chad Mitchell Trio), The Talbot Brothers (CCM fans take note), Terry Melchor, Kiss, and The Beach Boys (Doing “Vegetables” from the not-yet released “Smiley Smile”), among many others. Oh...and Dooley Wilson singing “As Time Goes By” from the “Casablanca” soundtrack. One especially rare cut is Neil Young’s “War Song,” (done with Graham Nash and the Stray Gators), which was never released on any album but this sampler. Swipe left to hear the end of it. These LPs are not always pricy, but all are collectible, as each features 1-2 unintentionally rare cuts, which is often the case with promo samplers.
