I play Bailey’s Ballads a lot.

Flamin’ Groovies, Live in San Francisco 1973.

Long Bob Weir interview in GQ had me reflecting on different trajectories of Groovies and Dead. Both founded in Bay Area in 1965, both featuring a guitar prodigy, and both at heart bar bands (never stopped playing covers).

Is that a review of Ariana Grande?

Reminds me of the NME’s review of Yes by Yes. “No.”

No, just the album title.  I didn't think it was all that bad.  Even good in a way.

“Even good in a way” is a nice concise review too. 😄

Don Cherry, Where is Brooklyn?. Rhetorical one assumes.

Miles Davis, On the Corner, which seems less radical (but still radical), heard right after the 1969 Cherry.

To me, On the Corner never sounded particularly radical:  it was kind of a pop move.

 

What it sounded like was GREAT.

It's like Ornette Coleman's Prime Time.  For Ornette and jazz, that wasn't radical:  it was a pop move, a retrenchment.

 

But it was GREAT.  Dancing in Your Head remains, to my mind, one of the greatest albums ever.
