"Moon Over Greene County" - Dan Zanes
Hope your weather is as nice as it is here today LD, High 60s and maybe even up into 70 here in sacatomatoes. Discs fly far in weather like this, so I'm out to check out used CD stores and toss a few discs down by the river. Hope everyones day goes well whereever you are.60's and sunny here, my friend-though I like what you're doing with your day WAY more than mine. Though I did just have some time off to visit with my Mom, who visits every year from North Carolina for mine and my son's birthdays because they are four days apart. Great times, very sad to see her go.
Kudos for spiining some Dan Zanes, LD! I have a couple of Del Fuegos albums, and a couple of songs by his brother Warren, but I don't have any solo Dan Zanes material. Doesn't he usually stick to children's music these days?In the interest of full disclosure, that song is on a soundtrack I have, Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers. I don't care much for the movie, but the soundtrack is killer. With regard to Dan Zanes, yeah I think he mainly focuses on children's music these days-that's where I knew him from. I don;t have any of his solo stuff apart from that one song. I didn't know he was in the Del Fuegos-a band, by the way, that I saw open for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers back in '89 along with the Georgia Satellites. Helluva bill, though the Fuegos did not go over at all. Crowd was just not into them-I thought they sounded pretty damned good though.
Dr. Jimmy (Demo Version)- Pete TownshendThink I need to break down and finally get this from Amazon.
This is from the directors cut of quadrophenia with Pete on vocals
THE PLIMSOULS: Everywhere At Once
The Plimsouls song 'A Million Miles Away' is one of the best songs ever recorded and it still pisses me off to this day that some people think that the Goo Goo Dolls cover version of it came first.I know we are all about keeping it positive on thread, but frankly giving much of any merit for artisitic integrity to the Goo Goo Dolls is a horrid thought. I didn't even realize they had covered it. I remember when I first heard that song, it was on the soundtrack to the movie Valley Girl-and if I remember correctly didn't the band make a cameo in the film?
