A Music Thread: Rock Opera And Boom Boom!

[Garrett's formal Crocs]

The internet, social media, amazing access to pretty much the sum total of human achievement and incredible digital storage has made switching to another genre or album or song effortless.

And thoughtless too, which I think is too bad. I find myself switching stations or tracks or streams after just a few seconds when I don't like the first notes of whatever is playing. That is okay if I recognize the music and I know it, but what about new stuff that isn't immediately appealing? Am I missing out on incredible music just because I have the attention span of a gnat?

Yes, I went through a "Guided by Voices" phase. Why do you ask?

Speaking of something I had never heard...this grabbed me immediately! You'll see why! Elmore James: Shake Your Moneymaker

The Who's "Tommy" was the first album I heard that made sense to me as something besides a random collection of songs. The movie wasn't bad either, especially going into the city to see it without adult supervision!

This is famous...and for a good reason: it's great. John Lee Hooker: Boom Boom

Murray Perahia plays Beethoven Piano concerto No 5, called "The Emperor" for sort of mysterious reasons. Old Ludwig was no fan of Napoleon, so he certainly didn't call it that. But whatever it's called, it is an absolutely magnificent work, especially when done by one of the greatest pianists in history!
