Maybe in the UK they did, but not here in Norway! :)


ok, back to music:



Monk at Newport.
Pee Wee Russell does his thing on the clarinet.
Starts at about 4:35 and goes on for about 4 minutes.

By the way, even if it is great from vinyl on the stereo, on the computer with shitty speakers it doesn't really do that much. The nerve of the music is lost. oh well.

I seem to do a lot of listening on the bus these days. Purely self-defence, really, shutting out the inane mutterings and assorted grunts, farts and occasional screams of my fellow passengers.

This morning it was Unhalfbricking, and it occurred to me that apart from the obvious charms of Sandy Denny, a large part of the charm and success of this album is down to the brilliance of poor Martin Lamble. Have a listen to this, especially the gorgeous cymbals on the wind-down from 10:00 onwards. Delicacy and genius...

Brill track Shane, that arrangement stemmed from a jam I read somewhere. My fave FC album too.

S'been a while since I've heard one of them moments of musical brilliance but here's a cracker.

Right, starts off as nice gently chugging Blues, everythings got it place, nothing to see here...lyrically everythings going awry for poor ol' Boz but listen to what happens in the bass guitar part @ 1.02ish under the hook line. That phrase, its been used before but here it's so simple but soooo effective.


'3rds in the bass'.

Total awethumnessessness (IMO). I don't know which bassist it is, 2 are listed in the album credits, Freddie Washington and Hutch Hutcherson.

Aaaaahhhh....And rest.

Guitar solo ecstasy (IMO).

Short, schweet, perfectly formed and probably very very loud at the time. (...but thats enough about me arf arf arf etc).

2.30 - 3.16 Have a cold flannel ready for the forehead, it really is that good (IMO).

Among the many wonderful things that make up this track, please consider what Michael Karoli and Jaki Leibezeit are doing near the end, from 11:40 :
