"All of my thoughts of you, bullets through rotten fruit. Come apart at the seams, now I know what dying means. I am not my rosy self, left my roses on my shelf. Take the white ones they're my favorite, it's the side effects that save us." Artist: The National
Album: Trouble Will Find Me (2013)

Today's spin comes from one of my favorite contemporary groups out there. I've been following them a long time and they do such good work. They also keep busy while they aren't recording work for their own outfit, organizing things like the "Day Of The Dead" compilation. This album stands out to me as the group's most cohesive effort. Not to say that their other work isn't cohesive, it's just that this one in particular feels like every song is part of something greater than itself. Every song is great on its own (which is true for most albums by The National), but none of their past efforts managed this sense of oneness with itself. Wonderfully complex and gloomy as ever, this one will put the feels to you in a heavy way. Melodically specific as ever, it feels liken every member of the band knows exactly what to do and when to do it. The whole album is heavily worked out, decided upon. These guys are dedicated to delivering quality sound in a style unique unto themselves. This is one of those albums where it would be near impossible to pick a favorite song. I even had a hard time picking lyrics for this post. You could and should buy any of their albums because none will disappoint. Here's to Let It Be (or Nevermind). Happy spinning, friends!

Give me one last chance
and I'm gonna make you sing
Give me half a chance
To ride on the waves that you bring...

Deeper !

-- Hudson Ford
'Worlds Collide' (64535 / 1975)

REVIEW
The third album by Hudson Ford is also the third album of their's I've reviewed for My Dads LPs. I've yet to revisit either of the two albums I reviewed and as World's Collide gets going I immediately feel this is record is also unlikely to be spun again any time soon. It's clever pop rock, but not quite as clever as say 10CC. It's tuneful, but the song-writing not a patch on Lennon or McCartney's. They're simply a good-ish band. Side 1 is moving along without much to report. When Love Is Overgrown is a slow song with some nice orchestration. As Hours Go By has a bossanova meets psychedelic vibe... but isn't as exciting as those words would suggest. Bootleg, a stomping funky number which is their best track so far. Midway it turns into a Queen track with multiple vocals. A lot of fun. Side 2 open with Jesus Said. It's a slow acoustic rock ballad. Utterly dismal. Day Without Love has a similar tempo and musical arrangements and is also similarly shite. With Petro Rock we've a high velocity rock n roll track, but there's little about it that elevates it from an average stomp. Mile High feels like an attempt at a glam track, but once again it's just not good enough. A rejected Bowie B-side. And we finish on Keep Me Rolling... just bleurgh.

DAD'S THOUGHTS

DISCOG PRICES

🔊🔊🔊

The Unofficial Theme To Angel Heart is a bootleg of The Sisters Of Mercy from 1987. What the connection between the band and the 1987 film, Angel Heart is, is unknown. To me anyway.
The label on the record wrongly names the band as The Sisterhood, and also wrongly names the song Good Things as Good Thing. It also credits the songwriters as Raiders. ( Paul Revere And The Raiders did release a single called Good Thing in 1966, but it is not this song. )
The cover states Good Thing as "Demo 82" but it is in fact from the John Peel session of September 7th 1982.
The date of the recording of Jolene is given as "Brixton 3/26/83" but it was in fact recorded at Brixton Ace on April 6th 1983.

"You're in a fight to the death, my friend. A black metal t-shirt your shield. You've got the past on your breath, my friend. Now name all the monsters you've killed." Artist: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit
Album: The Nashville Sound (2017)

There is never a wrong time to listen to today's spin. This album features super-tight performances being delivered in the legendary studio of its namesake. This album is so reverent. You can really feel that Isbell and the band wanted to deliver on these tracks not only for the sake of the record or their fans, but also out of respect to the place they were in. The whole thing just feels so hardworking. It's has its share of soft, poignant songs ("Last of My Kind", "If We Were Vampires"), but can still kick out a super slick jam when it needs to ("Cumberland Gap", "White Man's World", "Anxiety"). The songwriting is excellent and traverses a lot of territory, from being an outcast and stuck in your hometown to the reality of death in a relationship. It tackles social issues like mental illness and racism. There's a lot to enjoy about this album, and it will give you more to think about than you anticipate. Here's to the Cumberland Gap.

Happy spinning, friends!

Historic moment! Kaat just finished primary school and buys her first vinyl record at Onno Blomsteel of North End of course!

-- Manfred Mann's Earth Band
'The Good Earth' ( ILPS9306 / 1974)

REVIEW
Before I get into the music, this album came with a coupon, which it filled out meant you were entitled to 1 square foot of land in Llanerchyrfa; County Brecon. LOVE that idea. The album, Manfred Mann's fifth, is equally enjoyable and bonkers. Give Me The Good Earth is a blues prog odyssy. Great vocals and driving drums and some bonkers keyboards sounds. Eight minutes and thirty seconds of brilliance. Launching Place is straight up 70s Prog and... and I like it. I'll be good is a more straighter rock track that shuffles along. It has some great guitar work. And that's it for side one. Only the three tracks, but very enjoyable tracks. Side 2 opens with Earth Hymn. A spiky funk track which opens to near Pink Floyd proportions in the chorus to a glorious lead guitar section. It then explodes into a extended keyboard and guitar solo. I love their ambition. Sky High has, again, some Floydisms, with a great intro before this bass lead riff drives the track move. SO much groove. It's glorious. Be Not To Hard is a soft acoustic track with interesting production ideas and some sweet guitar work and again the song opens out into this wonderful long instrumental sections. Ah man... It's difficult to find a dud on this album. And we finish on Earth Hymn pt2 which is magnificent. Wouldn't sound out of place on a Floyd record at the peak of their carer, it has a clever rhythm change up mid song which is so impressive. Massive thumbs up from me.

DAD'S THOUGHTS 
2 minutes of fame 3/10

HIGHLIGHT. Give Me The Good Earth
LOW POINT. Nope. Not here

DISCOG PRICES 
LOW £1.99

Tonight's lil thing I slapped together while preparing a batch of beats to send to a few artists. No more tons of 4 and 8 bar loops on my computer in my bedroom. It's time to go worldwide.

"Clouds were grey yesterday, devil on my shoulder says, 'Time to play.' Yellow Brick road, blackboard black. Keep on walkin' and don't look back." Artist: Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band
Album: Safe As Milk (1967)

Here we are with yet another debut album spinning today. If there ever was a Captain Beefheart album to be dubbed "accessible," this is the one. And even then this album was ahead of its time in its own ways. It covers a lot of territory musically. Blues jams like "Sure 'Nuff 'n Yes I Do" give way to proto-garage jams like "Zig Zag Wanderer." There are influences of doo-wop and country as well. Even some early funk rhythms and beats. Not to mention searing guitar work that's not only thick and bluesy but also riding the burgeoning Era of psychedelia, which is in keeping with Beefheart's writing. These are dense jams. The styles and subgenres displayed on this album are still being emulated today. Whether you're into Captain Beefheart or not, you cannot deny the sheer sprawl his influence had on music as we know it. And I'd venture to say that even if you don't dig the Captain, there's at least one song on this album you can get behind. And that's all it takes. Here's to a brand new Cadillac, and a new Ferrari too.

Happy spinning, friends!
