"Innunedo", hmmm? I'll have to check that one out. "Made in Heaven", geez I never even heard of that one. Guess I've been out of touch for a while. There were about ten years ('88-'9Cool in there where I wouldn't even pay attention to non-Christian artists.

So, what is the story behind "Made in Heaven", anyways? I take it that was their swan song? Was Freddy on it, or was it after he died?

For Made in Heaven the three surviving members assembled to complete songs recorded by Freddie shortly before his death in 1991. A collection of their most personal songs it featured Freddie’s last ever vocal performance ‘Mother Love’.

some further thoughts (on "made in heaven")........

i've heard, when they were recording "innuendo" freddie said to keep the tape rolling because he didn't know how much time he had left....and he wanted to record until he couldn't. they would have to take long "rests" inbetween vocal performances but they were all set on fulfilling freddies wishes.

"mother love" is one of my favorite songs, off that album.

But Side Two starts with "Put Out the Fire" and closes with "Under Pressure" (arguably the best thing they EVER did) so how bad can THAT be? (& I like the Lennon tribute, awkward as it was at times).


"The Game" is incredible. Their first six songs on it were all over FM and rightfully so. I heard there's a DVD out on the making of it; I'd love to see it.

"Hot Space", I don't know, it was way too radical of a change, and they didn't sound like much of a band on it. "Under Pressure" was already out way before it; I think they threw the song on there to save it from being a total disaster. "The Works" was an OK comeback, but a little too little to late. "One Vision" was a cool song; but haven't heard any of their albums newer than "The Works". I had kinda lost interest by then.

But for right now:

Phil Ochs, "Rehearsals for Retirement"
Leonard Cohen, "More Songs About Love And Hate"
Velvet Underground & Nico
Elliot Murphy, "City Lights/Lost Generation"
Elvis Costello & the Attractions, "Armed Forces"
Joy Division, "Closer"
T-Bone Burnett, "Proof Through the Night"
DA, "Alarma Chronicles"
Leslie Phillips, "The Turning"
Swirling Eddies, "Outdoor Elvis"


Wait! What about DFBB! Or the Clash's five great ones! Or six or seven Tom Waits' albums! Graham Parker's "Squeezing Out Sparks"! Kevin Coyne! Mark Heard's "Dry Bones Dance"! Vigilantes of Love's "KIlling Floor"! Nick Cave's "Tender Prey" and "the Good Son"! The first Pretenders! American Music Club's "Mercury"!

Etc., etc., etc.

Note to self: Should have spent more time getting my life together, and less time experiencing great music ... sigh.

Thanks, Dennis. Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

I appreciate it. : )

And to be honest, yes, "Criminal Under My Own Hat" could replace anything on my original list. It is perhaps my very favorite album of the 90s, even though it came out right when the decade started.

I am embarrassed to say I have never heard "Boot And A Shoe" yet.

You're welcome! Pleased

Dude, drop whatever the hell you are doing and go buy it right now. Cool
And get "Fan Dance" while you are at it, though if you must pick one, get "Boot & Shoe!" Even my wife loves it, and she hates everything! Shocked Tongue

I love "Fan Dance." MY wife loved that, too, and SHE is also a wife that usually hates everything!


i don't hate everything

My wife caught me and posted that. Sorry for the interruption.

INTERRUPTION!!!!

Thanks, honey, trying to write something here ...

whatever!

That was Heidi, now introduced to the message board. : )


Audiori J: I know, this whole top ten thing is impossible. I can fill a top ten with just TST releases -- I mean, let's admit it, listing the "Alarma Chronicles" as one album COULD BE CONSIDERED cheating. ; ) But even if it's argued to be just one on a list of ten (due to the fact it was re-released all at once at one time, and no one has a silly anti-box set rule), I can honestly come up with nine other TST albums I also would take into complete seclusion. DFBB, AF, Kalhoun, SE's first two, the first TST solo albums, JW, and Motorcycle. There! But then there's probably ten Tom Waits albums I could do that with, too, or Costello albums, or at least a five-five Lou Reed and Leonard Cohen split (Leonard himself could be close to ten ... but not quite).

I cannot possibly make a top 10 list- I'm too fickle
but it would include
DA- Motorcyle
Beatles- Abby Road
Bowie- Ziggy Stardust
.......

and I cant name any more- its a musical montage below that........

lets pose it this way...

your house is on fire!- you have time to grab only 5 CDs from your entire collection-

which would you take?

I'd take:

motorcycle
Abbey Road
Ziggy Stardust
Scenic Routes
Wide Eyed Wonder


there that was easy....

then I would sit on my lawn and mourn my tremendous lump of gooey plastic left inside.....

"your house is on fire!- you have time to grab only 5 CDs from your entire collection-

I would probably hit the box sets, as a total cheat --

Alarma Chronicles
The Costello Ryko box set of first three albums and live bootleg
Stiff Records Box set (!!!)
Poison Girls box set (obscure but great feminist-anarchist pre-hardcore punk band)
Either the Jam complete box or Lou Reed's "Thought & Expression"

This will of course have changed by tomorrow ...
