  1. OK that’s just beautiful guitar playing.

    I listened to Beck era Yardbirds in high school, but despite my brother’s insistence just didn’t follow up with subsequent stuff, so thanks for this.

    I’m still mining my vinyl collection. Having gotten through almost all the jazz I’ve been listening to the rock , which has been surprisingly disappointing overall, (there is still a box of rock missing – it’s gotta be around somewhere, just haven’t found it) but I am agog with The Who.

      Nice. Quadrophenia IS The Who’s masterpiece. It doesn’t seem to get the publicity of Tommy but it’s far better.

      If I’m not listening to the local college station (fewer commercials, more music, plenty of good songs-80’s, 90’s, 00’s, I’m listening to Ghost on my old school ipod. Good stuff.Report

      • Tommy I can listen to over and over. Quadrophenia much less frequently, because it’s too emotionally gut-wrenching.

        My jacket’s gonna be cut and slim and checked
        Maybe a touch of seersucker, with an open neck
        I ride a G.S. scooter with my hair cut neat
        I wear my wartime coat in the wind and sleet

        We leaned hard on the movie soundtrack of Tommy in college, but I still think Who’s Next is the better album. It’s got to be in the top five rock albums of all time, maybe #1.Report

          Who’s Next is great, but I don’t think it’s better than Quadrophenia (but at this point we’d really be arguing about degrees of greatness, which is kind of pointless). And as a standalone album Who’s Next is impressive (I know it’s what’s left of the life house project, but it seems more like a traditional rock album).Report
