    [QUOTE=Borgoguy;4347368]Betcha 80% of the guys here have never heard the record or know the name Humble Pie. Sad.

    I love Marriott's spoken word intro. RIP. What power in this rave up.

    That and Four Day Creep would just stick in my mind...

    Extremely Under-Rated[/QUOTE]

    Dead wrong. Undersold, sure, but not underrated.

    I'm tired of hearing how f*cking underrated this album is.

    Too many people have blown smoke up this album's a$s. It's probably overrated. F it.

    I read three books about the Stones.

    1) Up and Down with the Rolling Stones. It was a fine read.

    2) Keith's autobiography. It's kind of tremendous, his recall is phenomenal, 100% better than I thought it might be. And because the story is so interesting, it's a great read. Recommended.

    That said, he's an egotistical c*nt. Of that I have no doubt. And it's okay, because I enjoy his music, but I would want no part in knowing the man if there wasn't a few dollars in it for me. Frankly, he would have been better off in life if a few more people kicked his ass instead of kissed it.

    3) Ronnie Wood's autobiography. Also tremendous, also recommended. He can't give you too much nitty gritty in his war stories because he was too out of his mind.

    Not only does he come across as thoughtful and vulnerable and all heart, but I've heard first hand that to know Ron Wood personally is to love him.

    What the hell kind of rant is this?

    Beggars Banquet is most certainly one of the most under rated albums. Period! The fact that you called it undersold gives that feeling already that it was better than the public thought it was at the time. It's never spoken of by most. Most don't know it exists. It's the most humble and dirty you will ever hear the Stones.... IMO.

    If you dug Keith's book, you cannot top this one for WTF moments:

    [IMG]http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51mNjm94qoL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_.jpg[/IMG]

    [QUOTE]As the typical high school sophomore, I was not thrilled when my English teacher assigned us another boring reading assignment. This particular assignment was to read someone's autobiography/biography and write an essay on it. I consulted my older sister, and she recommended The Real Frank Zappa Book. I was skeptical at first. Who was Frank Zappa anyway? But as I read this excellent book, I discovered the real Frank Zappa. I realized that this individual did not get as much recognition as he should of, as a musician and as a human being. The Real Frank Zappa Book was also one of the funniest things I've read since Edward Gorey's The Gashlycrumb Tinies (which I highly recommend). Since reading the book, I have begun listening to his music more and am slowly being transformed into a die-hard Zappa fan. Frank Zappa was a truly unique individual. I would recommend this book to anyone who is in the mood for a laugh.[/QUOTE]

    [QUOTE]However, the most amazing revelation is contained in the chapter entitled, "Failures". In this chapter, Zappa details various ideas that he had proposed to venture capital companies. The most astounding of these is the idea to digitize music, and have it available to be transferred via high-speed phone lines to the consumer. Keep in mind that this book was written in 1988, and he explains that this proposal was prepared in 1982, before the invention and widespread popularity of the Compact Disc! He knew, twenty years before the fact, that purchasing music at a store, on media was an outdated process.

    Regardless of how you feel about Zappa's music, this shows his absolute genius. He foresaw digital music, the transfer of digital music, the use of telephone lines to transmit this music.

    Brilliant[/QUOTE]

    My bad. I thought you were talking about Exile On Main Street and ranted thusly. (We've been reading about how "underrated" it is for 30 years now ... enough!)

    I can no longer trust myself to ID a Stones album at a glance.

    Borgo, how the hell are you gonna hate on Steely Dan? Aja is a GREAT album. Pretzel Logic too.[/QUOTE]

    Their music sounds like "lite (sic) jazz" or "pseudo R&B" with bad pop/rock thrown in for good measure. It's like they were trying to be a hybrid of Chicago/Blood Sweat & Tears/The Doobie Brothers/Procol Harum and a hundred other bands. Plus, I find their vocals unbelievably annoying and songs completely insipid. But that's just me.

    Haha, hey man that's what makes the world go around. I can see given your fine Jazz tastes as to why you would feel this way.


    Good call on Yoshimi btw. I think I'm gonna listen to that album now actually.

    Funny thing is I am a big Tull fan and I have that CD but I don't think I've listened to it often at all. I will have to dig it out and see what I have been missing.

    Just listened to most of [I]Porcelain[/I]. I like it and the band. They remind me of Filter.

    [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUPf3bZzAHc&feature=related[/url]

    Saw this track, which only appears on the Japanese import as a bonus track. I really dig this tune. Thanks again for the recommendation, 2mile.

    Is that true? LOL!

    EDIT: I just looked up the band. No mention of a Filter connection. Some of the members of Sparta were in At the Drive-In and Engine Down.

    A lot of the albums I have seen I would NEVER have said they were underrated....then again, a lot of younger people haven't heard much of the good music from the era.

    I have a mixed bag:

    1. Living Colour: Vivid.

    2. Badlands: Badlands.

    3. Kiss: Dressed to Kill.

    Once you get past the two attempts at radio singles (and really, those are pretty good), there is some top notch material on the album. Particularly, Occasional Demons, Roll Yer Own, Rocks on the Road, Gold Tip Boots Black Jacket & Tie, Sleeping With the Dog and When Jesus Came to Play. Hell...the album doesn't really have a bad song.
