Cool. I didn't even know about that album. I keep meaning to get the Monkees' music, but it just hasn't worked its way into my budget. I had a collection at one point, but I suppose I gave it away. Would you say that album, as a whole, is worth picking up?


If you like The Monkees I‘m pretty sure you‘d like DJBH. Amazon supposedly has samples of the tracks but I just checked it and they’re not working for me.

DJBH

I'll have to check that album out, as the Monkees are one of my guilty pleasures.

I saw the Monkees in concert!

OK, it was the 20th anniversary tour, in 1986, but still ...

That was when my sister and I "discovered" them. That's when they re-ran all the TV episodes and we watched 'em and loved 'em.

"Discovering" things with your sister is always a good time.


No, no, no. Not in the John Irving kind of way, you sickos.

Yay, I have my first Marina & The Diamonds CD. It's just the promo featuring "Obsessions" and "Mowgli's Road", but at least it's something. The vinyls may make better collectibles, but I wanted to rip the music losslessly instead of relying on the downloadable MP3s. True, these recordings aren't exactly audiophile-quality, but I'll take what I can get. Next week I should get the promo version of The Crown Jewels EP.

How many of the voices in your head are you referring to?

In keeping with the theme of sort-of knockoff bands.

Well that got me listening to:

Tommy James & the Shondells-Crimson and Clover

Which leads to:

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - Crimson & Clover

and my favorite Joan Jett song:

Joan Jett & The Blackhearts- Little Drummer Boy (vinyl)

I bought my copy of this in 82 at Tower Records and think I pissed them off a bit. The album sleeve said it had “Little Drummer Boy” but when I got it home it actually had “Oh Wow is Me.” So I took it back and had them open the shrink wrap on almost every album until we found a Christmas edition copy the had “ittle Drummer Boy.”

Melora Creager (Rasputina) - The Willow Tree Triptych

I'm glad I was able to get one out of this limited run of 100, though the price was a little out-of-whack considering the hand-made aspect of it leaves a lot to be desired. It's simply printing on sturdy paper with glitter framing the pictures (two of the same picture of her nearly clutching her bosoms), a red feather affixed to the center, and her signature and number in marker. My number is 17/27, so it must be part of the initial batch made for her tour. I'm guessing most people attending her concerts choked at the price, though her 100 copies are now sold out.

It's only 3 tracks, as the name implies. They're three different songs named "The Willow Tree" from three different countries: America, England, and Ireland. After one listen I think I like the Irish one the best. This really just makes me impatient for her next album.
