Old Music Thread

Recommended Posts

you can blame Radcliffe and Maconie for this thread starting. How can they mention a great act they never play and still not play him...?

So enjoy this, and hit this thread up with some more perhaps-obscure tunes. :)

Apologies CaledonianGonzo - I tried to up vote you for this one, but in my trigger happy shakey state, I managed to down vote you as well. This was never meant to be.

By the way, I've always wondered - are you actually a Caledoniam Gonzo - in the journalistic sense, as opposed to the life style choice? Or any other numbers of reasons, really.

This song was already 35 years old when Janis performed it nearly 50 years ago, so I assume it counts as 'old music'

Still a classic and a great arrangement.

Ah. Pair of stoaters there, cheers.

Found that Esmeray tune on one of those indie comedy movies that they have. Forgot the movie but I've been digging that album and exposing myself to 60's/70's Turkish pop since. It's a gold mine!

Those of us who saw Steve Hillage join The Beat may enjoy this

Not a Hillage composition but a personal favourite and just look at those flares (and no danger of personal injury, please note). Remember kids, the Turin Shroud is NOT an old Steve Hillage t-shirt

Sweet B-sides were a thing of joy, sounding like they wanted to sound like despite them sucking at the ChinniChap teat to rake in the dosh:

I always thought that Harrison got closer to the sound/feel of an acid trip on this song than anything Lennon did.  Particularly Ringo's drum sound on the original.

It was similar with Slade wasn't it? And live both bands were alot heavier/rockier than you would imagine from their A sides..
