Friday Random 10: 1/29/2010


Happy Friday to all:

  1. Without The Light (Kelly Joe Phelps, Roll Away the Stone)
  2. Partita #3, Menuet II (Paul Galbraith, Bach: The Sonatas and Partitas)
  3. Tenderoni (Chromeo, Fancy Footwork)
  4. Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (The Beatles, White Album)
  5. Jump Up! (Imagination Movers, For Those About to Hop)
  6. Birdland (Weather Report, Best of Weather Report)
  7. Get Up, Stand Up (Bob Marley, Legend)
  8. Territories (Rush, Power Windows)
  9. The Remembering (High the Memory) (Yes, Tales from Topographic Oceans)
  10. With My Own Two Hands (Jack Johnson + Ben Harper, Sing-a-Longs and Lullabies)

Lots of good stuff to feature here this week — the Bob Marley piece is an especially welcome reminder of warmer climates right now, as it’s 15 degrees and snow on the ground here in Indiana. But in the spirit of 80’s music started last week, here’s a live version of Rush doing “Territories” (#8). Watch it for no other reason that to see Geddy Lee doing three things simultaneously — playing a hard bass line, playing intricate keyboard hits, and doing vocals — any one of which would give most musicians (<raises hand>) fits.

  1. Weather Report!

    I was a fan of Weather Report in high school but I haven’t listened to them in years. I had some of their vinyl albums but these are in a landfill now. I should buy some Weather Report on CD.
