Oh, woe is me.

So, I asked for comments, and I got a good one. Apparently I hadn't enabled the thing properly. Anyhow, now you can while away the hours freely airing your humble-most thoughts in the comments field.

Thanks, Jay.

Nature intended the abstract…

…for you and me.

This mix was the first I did solely on CD, and mostly from downloaded mp3s. Yes, I admit that they were not originally my own, but since then I've gotten hold of nearly all of these on disc. In fact, that has been the net outcome of my downloading experience; I buy a ton of CDs, nearly daily, and almost entirely inspired by things I hear/download online.

I had spent a week at a yoga retreat in southern Utah—incredible scenery—at a place, now defunct, called Inner Harmony. I made the mix with those people who were my fellow students and teachers in mind. Then I sent a copy to each of them, along with the address of another of our co-yogis, and asked them each to make cover art and send that to their enclosed recipient. I heard from 2 or 3 out of 20 or so people. Oh, well, one tries.

In any case, several people have given me very warm feedback on this one, so I hope you enjoy it, too.

I love the lead-in-groove-sounds at the beginning. Smells like Trane spirit.

Alfred Tomatis/Benjamin Whorf/Virgil Griffith/Edouard Locke

A Taste of Tomatis

"The Tomatis method refers to the work of Dr Alfred A Tomatis, an ear, nose and throat specialist born in France. His method—aka 'auditory training,' 'auditory stimulation' and 'listening therapy'—is intended to re-educate the way we listen to improve learning and language abilities, communication, creativity and social behaviour. Perhaps the most poignant aspect of his theory, though, is the Tomatis effect, which posits that we can vocalise only those sounds that we can hear. His groundbreaking research led Tomatis to the following conclusions:

The primary function of the ear is to convert sound waves to electrochemical impulses that charge the neocortex of the brain.

Sound is a nutrient; we can either charge or discharge the nervous system by the sounds we take in through both air and bone conduction.

There is a distinction between hearing and listening. The two are related, but distinct, processes. Hearing is passive; listening is active. This corresponds to the difference between seeing and looking. Listening and looking are active focussing processes.

The quality of an individual's listening ability will affect both spoken and written language development; listening ability also influences communication, thereby shaping the individuals's social development, confidence, and self-image.

The active process of listening can be enhanced or refucused by auditory stimulation using musical and vocal sounds rich in high frequencies. This entails the use of filtered and enhanced audio tapes employing the music of Mozart and Gregorian chant.

Communication is a process that begins in utero. The unborn child hears as early as the fourth month after conception. Sound actually helps the foetus's brain and nervous system to grow."

from Sullivan's Music Trivia by Paul Sullivan; pg. 98

This reminds me of Benjamin Whorf:

"The Sapir-Whorf hypothesis, also known as the Whorfian hypothesis, proposed that language affects thought, and the structure of the language itself affects cognition. As Whorf put it, "Language shapes the way we think, and determines what we think about."

"My analysis was directed toward purely physical conditions, such as defective wiring, presence or lack of air spaces between metal flues and woodwork, etc., and the results were presented in these terms. ... But in due course it became evident that not only a physical situation qua physics, but the meaning of that situation to people, was sometimes a factor, through the behavior of people, in the start of a fire. And this factor of meaning was clearest when it was a LINGUISTIC MEANING [Whorf's emphasis], residing in the name or the linguistic description commonly applied to this situation. Thus, around a storage of what are called 'gasoline drums,' behavior will tend to a certain type, that is, great care will be exercised; while around a storage of what are called 'empty gasoline drums,' it will tend to be different -- careless, with little repression of smoking or of tossing cigarette stubs about. Yet the 'empty' drums are perhaps the more dangerous, since they contain explosive vapor. Physically, the situation is hazardous, but the linguistic analysis according to regular analogy must employ the word 'empty,' which inevitably suggests a lack of hazard. The word 'empty' is used in two linguistic patterns: (1) as a virtual synonym for 'null and void, negative, inert,' (2) applied in analysis of physical situations without regard to, e.g., vapor, liquid vestiges, or stray rubbish, in the container.

In studying the cause of a fire which had started under the conditions just described, Whorf concluded that it was thinking of the "empty" gasoline drums as "empty" in the meaning described in the first definition (1) above, that is as "inert," which led to a fire he investigated. His papers and lectures featured many other examples from his insurance work to support his belief that language shapes understanding."

via Wikipedia

Sometimes, people's logic is just backwards. Some said this about Whorf. I say this about Virgil Griffith.

This does not remind me of Edouard Locke:

The Wire/David Simon/Bill Moyers

Last night I watched the final episode of season 5 of The Wire. I put it off as long as I could; I will miss very dearly watching this show. A friend pointed me to the podcasts of Bill Moyers' Journal (they're available for free through iTunes) and his excellent interview with David Simon, the creator of the show. I think it's a must-listen, even if you haven't (yet) seen the show.

Hubcap Diamond Star Halos #1

Guest columnist: Miles K.

(To download a zip of the entire songlist, click here.)

Dear readers/listeners: I submit for your listening pleasure, 10 bands that never really got their due & 10 songs that everyone should know but maybe it’s good they don’t…shhh…don’t tell anybody, they might spoil it for the rest of us.

1. The Pretty Things: “Rosalyn
This British Blues/R&B craze beat group should have been as big as The Stones, The Kinks or The Animals, but indeed the Gods of Rock had other plans for them. Led by the brazen Phil May on vocals and the bearded Dick Taylor (who had a shot at being in the Stones as bassman but gave up his spot to Bill Wyman) on guitar, this band blasted onto the British scene in 1964 with this nifty little number. Later covered to great effect by David Bowie on his 1973 all-covers “Pinups” album, this track boasts everything a scorching blues-wailing rocker should have: spleen-rupturing slide guitar, skull-thumping drums, screeching, manic vocals and enough energy to tear through the speakers of any cheap AM car radio. The Pretties sadly never caught on in America and where their contemporaries took off for the stratosphere of rock superstardom in the States, the Pretties marinated in relative obscurity, releasing 2 unsung psychedelic masterpieces in the later part of the sixties: S.F. Sorrow (the first proper concept album pre-dating The Who’s “Tommy” by a good year) and the even stranger Parachute. While the Pretties have never really gone away (tours and albums still get them out to their aging fans), they continue to remain on the murky periphery of classic rock, a genre they helped forge back in its formative years.

2. The Move: “Walk Upon the Water
These mid-sixties pioneers of British psychedelia are often overshadowed by the larger-than-life pomposity of the 70’s rock behemoths they later morphed into: Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). Led by the Beatles-inspired future Wizzard, Roy Wood, who wrote all the band's early “hits,” and boasting the confident swagger of Carl Wayne on lead vocals, along with future ELO and Black Sabbath drummer, Bev Bevan, The Move exploded onto the British pop scene with television-smashing live performances and 3-minute pop singles with intricate vocal harmonies, sonic orchestral bass-lines, and song craftsmanship to make even Brian Wilson jealous. This one glorious track off their self-titled debut is clearly as good as any of its contemporaries, but you won’t hear a Move song on classic rock radio anywhere in this galaxy. Also, check out the original version of “Do Ya” on the last Move album “Message from the Country” before ELO Zepped it up for 1970’s rock radio play-lists.

3. The Creation: “Making Time
Crackling through the cones of your speakers comes a sound so dangerous and so addictive it should have a warning on the record label. This 1966 gem of British Power-pop indelibly stamps itself on your cerebral cortex and all you can think to do is pick up the needle and put it back at the beginning of the track. Thus is the impact of The Creation’s sonic masterpiece “Making Time.” That riff alone is worth the price of admission. A sonic innovation on many levels, this track featured guitarist’s Eddie Phillips’ bowed guitar, a good few years before Jimmy Page’s violin-bowing freak-outs on “Dazed and Confused” sent American kids into orgasmic shudders of sonic delight. The track also boasts a euphoric dose of feedback, still new to virgin radio ears, and hammers it all home with some vicious power-chords that, I bet, made Pete Townshend himself sit up and take notice. Sadly, The Creation would merely serve as a footnote in the career of one Ron Wood who played with the band in their declining days. Fortunately, in the late 90’s, American film-maker, Wes Anderson, used the track to great effect in his gorgeously moody film Rushmore, thus introducing The Creation to a whole new brood of listeners.

4. Quicksilver Messenger Service: “Fresh Air
These San Francisco scenesters were contemporaries of the far more successful Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane; they lacked the hit power and live draw of those bands, but remain nonetheless exciting. John Cipolina and company forged a fierce reputation as a bluesy, psychedelic live band that could change gears from spacey jazz-rock to fuzzed-out rock freak-outs on a dime. I’ve always thought this track could work just as well as, say, “All Along the Watchtower” in a Vietnam War film. To me, it says all that needs to be said about that era—Have another hit…indeed.

5. Moby Grape: “Omaha
I had this song on a compilation tape I made off of a Philadelphia classic rock station in the early 1980’s. This particular station was enamored of obscure 60’s Psychedelia and would mix it in with standard fare from the era like the Doors, Floyd, and Yes. Wildly animated guitarist Alexander “Skip” Spence started with the Airplane before forming the Grape. His story and brilliantly misanthropic solo album Oar are a topic unto itself to be discussed at perhaps a later date. In the meantime, I leave you with this short burst of brilliance—Listen my friend—you will be glad you came along for the ride.

6. Nektar: “King of Twilight”
Covered by Iron Maiden in the 1980’s, this slab of progressive heaviosity never found the place on classic rock radio which it rightfully deserves. Led by Hendrixian British guitarist Roye Albrighton, Nektar first reached the ears of the listening public in Germany, evolving out of the band Prophecy, a bluesy rock outfit that found luck playing the military bases which housed American soldiers eager to delve into the “new sounds” that rock had to offer in the late 60’s. Having made one loosely conceptual platter of highly acidic space-rock, Journey to the Center of the Eye, for the Bellaphon label in Germany, the band hit its stride on this, their sophomore release. Beginning with the side-long epic title track and then exploring more blues-based, even funky tracks (which showed a whole other side of the band that they would soon exploit to great effect on their conceptual masterpiece, Remember the Future), the true Nektar “sound” starts here. While real success eluded them in their heyday, Nektar did manage to tour the States regularly with their liquid light show by fifth member, Mick Brockett, and are still on the road today, albeit with only 2 of the original members.

7. Marillion: “Market Square Heroes
Scottish purveyors of 80’s Prog, Marillion were the rightful heirs to the throne of progressive rock begat in the former decade by the likes of Genesis, Yes, and King Crimson. This was their first single in the UK and what a glorious one it was. Front-man Fish, decked out in slightly ridiculous spangled, medieval outfits and Peter Gabrielesque face paint, rolls his R’s with a vengeance on this track, a staple in their live shows, and proclaims himself to be the new King of the Kingdom of Prog. Reportedly about a clash with a gang of fascist neo-nazi street thugs, this track announces Marillion as a force to be reckoned with; and in the early to mid 1980’s, they were. Ultimately, Fish left the fold, to be replaced by a more commercially appealing singer in Steve Hogarth, much the way Genesis turned to the more traditional Phil Collins in the wake of Gabriel’s departure from that band. But this period of the band's work has lost none of its magic over the years and Fish still tours heavily in Europe, occasionally ripping into this track with all the scorn and defiance of his younger days. “Are you following me?,” Fish screams out to the punters and they answer his call to arms with an affirmative, “Yes!”

8. Big Star: “September Gurls
Written by American rock outcast, Alex Chilton, this track off of Big Star’s second album Radio City was a delightful slice of American jangle-pop that would ultimately give birth to the whole college/alternative rock scene in the 1980’s, chiefly REM and company. Big Star made three amazingly eclectic albums in the 70’s and then faded into obscurity. Albeit to my ears not as classic as their first album, #1 Record, their second release opted for a more soulful R&B flavor á la Stax records, looking back to Chilton’s beginnings in The Box Tops. Nonetheless, toward the end of side 2 comes this delicious slice of pop confection. It’s a shame Chilton couldn’t have gone on to greener pastures, but such is the often tumultuous and fragile world of Rock and Roll. Immortalized in the 80’s by The Replacements’ brilliant eponymous single, Alex Chilton will always have a place in the hearts of sensitive rockers everywhere.

9. Flamin’ Groovies: “Shake Some Action
Initially a San Franciscan pre-punk garage band fronted by chest-beating wild man, Ron Lonely, the Groovies relocated to London in the mid 70’s, hooked up with Dave Edmunds, and reinvented themselves as melodic new-wave jangle-pop merchants. Upon hearing all glorious 4:31 minutes of this 1976 track from the album of the same name, one scratches one's head, befuddled as to why this song was not blaring out of every dorm window, car stereo or barroom jukebox cost-to-coast. Absolutely criminal!

10. The Only Ones: “Another Girl, Another Planet
This punky little ditty was penned by Only One, Peter Perrett and remains the signature single of a band that should have been huge in a Police, Pretenders, Elvis Costello New Wave world but are now relegated to Punk & New Wave compilations the world over. To me, this song is as memorable as, say, The Knack’s “My Sharona” but try finding this on today’s rock radio? No way!

Well, that’s all, folks! until next time…

*Please Note: The mp3’s of these tracks are merely posted as a sampler with the understanding that if you like what you hear, you will buy the full-length albums from these artists. Please buy from independent record stores! If you are in New York City, may I recommend Rockit Scientist at 33 St. Marks Place, as they will have most of these titles as well as other groovy merchandise.

Bill Irwin/Ukeleles/Dent May/Covers

Bill Irwin, even if he hadn't appeared as Mr Wiggles on Sesame Street, has become the pre-eminent face of "The New Clowning." And he's a hekuva nice guy to boot.

What? Nobody told me he has a lead role in "Rachel Getting Married." Really good movie, although admittedly it sports some serious cringe-moments.

Here is a playlist comprising excerpts from his post-post-modern, post-deconstuctivist, post-ridiculousness-ist performance piece, "In Regard of Flight," as it appeared on PBS in the mid-80s (I think.)
There are five segments here, and they should play one after another (hey, cool, youtube!)

Speaking of ukeleles (if you made it to the last "In Regard" segment…), here's Dent May & his charming ukelele thing:

Ukes, ukes, everywhere!
Four more vids in a sequence - all covers! all great!

Speaking of cover versions, here's one I like of Tom Waits' "Innocent When You Dream" as done by Great Lake Swimmers

Young, loud & snobby

Why does it bother me that these kids look to come from a somewhat privileged background? Maybe I'm the (reverse) snob. Wouldn't be the first time. Anyhow, they kick some white-person booty.

Something's out there

I'm happy to tell you that another friend has contributed a mix for us. John and I know each other a long time. He tends to listen to things that are rhythmically challenging or, at least, funky, and I approve of that. In his words:

"This is the first of the Sonic Sculptures done just for CD and not
adapted from a cassette. This is about the third of fourth version of
this CD. Various earlier versions included tunes by Miles Davis, Soul
Coughing, David Byrne, Ray Anthony, Duane Eddy, Tom Waits, Laurie
Anderson, &  Sting. Next week it probably would have a few more
changes, but I decided to stop screwing with it and make it official.

The collection was first put together in the summer of 2001 around the
time I bought the 'Lounge-A-Palooza' and 'Nimrod' CDs which served as
the jumping off point. All the songs in this collection were assembled
in Roxio Jam with crossfades."

Mr. Wizard & The Beatles

We seem to have a bit of a Beatles theme going here. I just want to say that's not my intention - blame Michael Jackson. 
My friend Rich is a terrific storyteller. I invited him to do a StoryCorps session with me. This file (99.5 mb mp3) was the result.
Rich tells two stories. The first is about a magic trick that he used to do with his school chums called "Mr. Wizard." I don't know why, but this story just kills me. The second story is about how he and his friends sneaked into the hotel where the Beatles were having their press conference in Boston back in 1964. They infiltrated the press conference and even asked questions! It's a hoot.
Since then, he wrote this e-mail to me about how their story has hit the inter-webs: 

Hi Henry:
Hope all is well.
Thought you might get a kick out of this - the story of the Beatles press conference. Somehow we were contacted by a guy who runs a Beatles web site and we told him our whole story and this is it. (Link)
Thanks again for your support and the story-listening.

Funky is Paul.

Combining some of my favorites: The Kinks, red, green, yellow and that two-tone Brazilian bell thingie.

And if you liked that one…

Posing a threat. Get over yourself.

Not everyone loves the Conchords. But everyone loves hair gel.

Note to self: Don't drive down Abbey Road.

Somebody ought to tell him that "Why Don't We Do It In the Road" wasn't referring to Abbey Road. And they didn't mean "drop trou in traffic."

Gracious! It's another double-disc mix!

This is a dream come true for me. All that music hanging around my apartment keeps shouting at me, "It's all about the sharing!" I've toyed with many modes of delivery: providing mixes for restaurants where I've worked, tracks for a friend's film project at NYU, posting songs to other community sites. But my wish is fulfilled by this venue which allows me to host not only my shares, but those of my friends and colleagues. I love to find out what others are listening to; what's on your iPod/on your turntable/on your deck/on your mind?

Here's a great example: These mixes were given to me by Aubyn at Christmas 2006. They're still fresh and crispy. Be sure to download the 3 pdf files he prepared with pix, lyrics and spankingly sharp layout.

I've given these two mixes to several people and so far the feedback has been pretty good.
As an introductory post I'd like to offer them to you, too; cover artwork, with photos taken by me, included.
These were, in some way, inspired by mixes made by Philippe Starck, which, I think, were titled "Tete" and "Coeur" or some such nonsense.
