I have play lists on iTunes by the year. Travel Suite: Motorboat to Mars D. He has tom toms and cymbals and all that stuff that you need. Sounds like generic early 80s stadium rock, so ahead of its time, but not in a good way. It has that choppy Chicago the town funky rhythm guitar. It does sound like the earlier albums, and also familiar because the single had a reasonable amount of airplay.
B-side of the above. An instrumental. Plinkety plunk vaguely avant garde piano. Gentle flute over the top, so Lamm and Parazaider duetting then a delicate touch of tinkling vibes. Is it going anywhere? They could have waited Album) few years and done a Windham Hill album. Not much of a B-side for a raucous stadium rock single. I bet those single B-sides are near mint. What does Terry Kath do? Bouncy piano. This would have been a far better B-side, but maybe they were holding it for a third single.
One of the best tracks. Acoustic guitar and lots of percussion and la-la-la-ing. The compulsion to use a brass section from time to Album) is a Chicago issue. As guitarists, drummers, keyboard players and bass guitarists will point out, they spend their evenings on stage with their fingers moving all the time. The brass section gets to stand around a lot waiting to come in. Nice flute on this … a flute and drumming extravaganza towards the end.
Really great playing. Also re-appeared on the fourth 4-LP box set. It opens side three. Then the brass section can do their bit. Nice jangly guitar, bass and drums then classic Hammond sound and a strong song … a good choice of single. My CD jumps a tad at 20 seconds in. Terry Kath guitar solo. He could have tied them together but you get better composer royalties this way. I thought I was still on track one till this started.

Some of these are very short too. Mercifully short. This is a recited poem, written by Kendrew Lascelles. I could tell Ray Davies and The Waterboys that this sort of thing gets skipped after the second hearing.
Lascelles had recorded this himself as the B-side of The Box. Apparently he performed it live on the Smothers Brothers Show in and got a million letters. Given that Chicago III was recorded in latethey would seem to be the first off the blocks with it. BUT the single by Lascelles is listed on Discogs as Lush instrumentation. It segues on from the previous track. Competing horns with an air of organized chaos then car horns and roadworks drill noises.
I get it! It ends with the sound of a toilet flushing. Punchy horns. Urgent rhythm guitar. A touch of Cannonball Adderley to me. Great playing all round.

Fisherman's Blues marked a change in the sound of The Waterboys', abandoning their earlier grandiose rock sound for a mixture of traditional Irish music, traditional Scottish music, country music and rock and roll.

How will we ever replace Lemmy and Bowie? Posted by Crispian Jago on 28 January However my grief at the loss of other rock stars has sometimes taken me by surprise. The sense of loss is easily and immediately explainable by the titanic contributions, ingenuity and passion both men bought to the music industry, but perhaps the sense of loss is further amplified by the nagging realization that we may never see their like again.
The hitting comprehension that we no longer have the capacity to back fill the immense loss of musical talent we are currently suffering is adding to our sense of loss.
We seem to be hemorrhaging rock and pop icons and being left with strategically-groomed choreographed Muppets obeying the formulaic instructions of soulless media executives. The easy solution for old farts like me is to wag the bigoted finger of blame at the unimaginative year old girls downloading this dull dirge.
I could then opt to take no further part in this music malarkey I once so loved and retreat to the familiar comfort of my neatly ordered gapless Zeppelin and Floyd collections, safe in the opinionated predisposition that modern music is dead.
Great new music is still out there. The problem is that many of us have become too lazy to seek them out. Fleet Foxes: Helplessness Blues. Posted by Crispian Jago on 11 May All too often a critically acclaimed, platinum selling debut album deviously entices its creators into an overly ambitious follow-up that despite consuming a far greater budget and timeframe falls somewhat short of its predecessor.
It has, no doubt, been completed on a far greater budget, and although finally recorded relatively quickly, nonetheless had a generous gestation period. This begs the inevitable question, have Fleet Foxes managed to retain the captivating charm of their debut masterpiece in the midst of the inevitable distractions enabled by its ensuing commercial success?
Montezuma opens the new album and picks up pretty much where the band left off incautiously adhering to their proven formula of ornate choral harmonies overlaying tranquil acoustic folk. Bedouin Dress adds some richer flavours to the established recipe with a middle-eastern infused fiddle and subtle mandolin undertones. The title track itself showcases the stylishly matured lyrics that, when taken across the whole album, invoke the mystical that so neatly accompanies the bands persona and melodies, yet astutely manages to retain an incredulous sense of veracity and non-deluded awe.
The Cascades occupies the centre of the album and provides a short instrumental interlude with intricate layered guitars reminiscent of a Mike Oldfield segue. The six piece outfit build up a head of steam in the middle section before the stage is cleared to allow Robin to get overly precious about his green apples.
Scrumping presumably deterred, the piece breaks into a free jazz cacophony invoking the recently departed spirit of Beefheart before gently winding down with the assistance of some honeyed strings. So all in all in seems as though Fleet Foxes have pulled off the tricky task of following up on their initial success by appropriately employing the natural process of evolution. But its gradualism, not punctuated equilibrium that has set up a sumptuous second success that should bring beardy weirdy baroque pop back to its highest level of credibility since its sixties heyday.
