When The Wind Blows - Original Soundtrack Album

Here's one you don't see too often and I can't quite remember where I found it - so automatically I give thanks to SFRP, just as a precaution. Since most awesome mp3's come from those fine folks. The talents employed on the songs here is just breathtaking - Squeeze, Roger Waters, Genesis and David Bowie. Damn, that's a nice line-up. I have not had the pleasure of seeing the film and it looks pretty darned hard to come by over here in the U. S. of A. so I may have to wait a while. It sounds quite good actually and I will keep my eyes open for it. Just listen and enjoy, children.

2. Facts And Figures

4. What Have They Done?
5. The Shuffle
6. The Russian Missile
7. Towers Of Faith

The Mighty Diamonds - Live In Toyo 1985

Yes, some of the sweetest harmonies in all of reggae music live in concert - The Mighty Diamonds. Tabby Shaw, Judge Ferguson and Bunny Simpson crafted some of the finest 3 part voice work that we shall ever be so lucky to hear again. It may be obvious by this point, considering all the roots reggae I have shared, that I don't much care for new reggae music. There may be some great new vocalists and harmonies but whenever I venture into new reggae it all sounds like the same old dancehall vibe that I got tired of as I retreated further back into reggae history. So, I am safe and comfortable in my pre-1990 reggae bubble. Many of the greatest Diamonds songs are represented here in their live glory - "Shame & Pride", "Right Time", Have Mercy" and "The Roots Is There" - you really cannot go wrong with this one...

The Stone Roses - Second Coming Rehearsal Sessions 1993-1994

Oh, the much ballyhooed and oh-so disappointing 'Second Coming' album. Not too many folks love the Stone Roses like DaddyRich, but this album was like a warm turd upon release back then. With the notable exception of 'Ten Storey Love Song', which still gets much play here I could not find much love for the rest. After all the legal wranglings and the much-too-long wait - I was very let down. And none-too-surprised when the break-up came about. A major regret for me was seeing the tickets on sale for a show in L.A. (for over $150 in 1995!) and figuring it wasn't worth the cash. I probably could've scraped it up but I wouldn't have had grocery (or, at that time more importantly - cigarette money) for 2 weeks and that was the deciding factor in it. Oh, the regret. My love for the band has only increased since then and am waiting patiently for them to reform and do Coachella in 2008....

Understandably, this is for only the hardest of the hardcore Roses lovers. Lots of tedium - if you've been around any band whilst rehearsing, it's quite boring. But I treasure it and hopefully one or two of you will as well.

Tom Jones - Live In Las Vegas 1969 at The Flamingo

Wow! I completely forgot that this gem was in my collection. It's the hardest working Welshman in show business at his best! What a great time to have seen him live and in Sin City as well - must have been quite a happening. Full of hits and the inimitable Tom Jones wit and banter - songs like 'It's Not Unusual', 'Delilah', 'Turn On Your Love Light' and, inexplicably 'Hey Jude' which everyone in Vegas seemed to be covering at that time. I just know I have Elvis singing that tune around here somewhere....hmmmm. Put this one on and feel the grooviness and love and don't be afraid to wear a little velour - live it up!

1. Turn on Your Love Light
2. Bright Lights and You Girl
3. I Can't Stop Loving You
4. Hard to Handle
5. Delilah
6. Danny Boy
7. (It Looks Like) I'll Never Fall in Love Again

Hello friends of the Ape. If you haven't already noticed - the posts are getting farther between these last 2 weeks. DadyRich has been dealing with some health issues that have taken up much of the free time I used to devote to this blog. I am not quitting, not by a long shot. But because of these concerns I have considerably slowed my output down - much to my regret. This is just to let everyone know that this blog is not slowly fading away but just slowing down for the forseeable future - I have a few more test/procedures to go through this month that I am not looking forward to and hopefully I can get back down to doing my thing here. I know, all of you are saying "who cares? post more free music!" but it's going to be a few weeks before I am back in the swing of this possibly. I wil still check comments and thanks the kind folks who always leave a good word. Also, when I do check the comments (they're sent to an e-mail account) and you type "damn, I missed this one - could you repost?" I have no idea to which record you are referring. And I have way too many posts up now (one of the fastest blogs on the internet, as far as posts and quantity go - certainly for a one-man operation) to troll through old posts to find your comment. Please keep that in mind, friends. So, thanks for coming by and I will not be killing any links so keep sharing.

Depeche Mode - Music For The Masses Remixes

Had to hijack the image since this one came to DaddyRich without a cover. I will always accept Depeche Mode discs, especially their remixes. I have said it before here and will repeat - no band puts more into their music to fit it for remixes. Some of the best (and worst, sadly as well) have remixed their tunes and given them great new life. Hearing this after so many years still has some great resonance with DaddyRich - the 'Strangelove (Razormaid Classic Remix)' was playing at a club I went to with this girl I was madly in love with in 1994 as her chaperone in case her date turned out badly - I was THAT friend. I am sure many guys here were the same, uugggh. Don't miss those years. This disc has some greats on it as well - so enjoy.

1. Never Let Me Down Again (FM Power Mix)
2. Strangelove (Razormaid Classic Mix)
3. Little 15 (Bogus Brothers)
4. Behind The Wheel (Disconet Mix)
5. Nothing (Dallas Mix)
6. To Have And To Hold (Icelandoc Taster Mix)
7. Strangelove (Miller Remix)
8. Route 66 (Rodgers Mix)
9. Behind The Wheel (Dub)
10. Pleasure, Little Treasure (Razormaid)
11. Behind The Wheel - Roze 66 (Megamix)
12. Death's Door (Skeleton Key Mix)

David Bowie - Live With Lou July 8 , 1972

This is a good one here, although Lou is only on a few tracks. It's from such a great period for both of their music, although the drugs and sleepless nights would soon take a terrible toll on them both. Just look at that setlist! 'Ziggy Stardust', 'Hang On To Yourself', 'Changes' and 'Space Oddity' among so many more classics - if It had a version of 'Rock & Roll Suicide' like the film did, I would be in heaven. Although they look a little too close for comfort onthe back, it was a strange time and they make for strange bedfellows, no? Just enjoy the awesome music with these two geniuses.

1. Intro
2. Hang Onto Yourself
3. Ziggy Stardust
4. Life On Mars

Radohead - Live at KCRW

Ah yes, the mighty Radiohead. What a behemoth in concert and I look forward to seeing them. You see, all I have is concert upon concert on disc and dvd and patiently await my first live experience. Also, this show is one I cannot find any more information on when I go googling for it. It's not the great 2003 KCRW show that we fans know and love. But, it IS Radiohead and it's them in a live incarnation - and isn't that really all that matters to us? I hope so. It has great versions of two of DaddyRIch's favorites - 'Fake Plastic Trees' and 'No Surprises'.

1. Intro.
2. A Punchup At A Wedding

DaddyRich's Love Compilation Disc 1

Since DaddyRich is lucky to have so much love in his life for so many years (look at that face above, what woman could possibly refuse?), I figured I would share some of the songs that bring it to my feeble old mind. Some are oldies, others are punk rock songs and many are somewhere in between. I also am answering another request by hobbling together another compilation. It seemed to me that of someone like Bob Dylan can do theme shows, why cannot DaddyRIch? Well, for one thing, I lack the software necessary, but I do have lots of music and can put together folders with my favorites - almost the next best thing. So, listen to these with one you love or are trying to get to love you. Who knows? It may do the trick. There will be a few more of these if you peeps are digging it. Let me know....

1. "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" - The Smiths
2. "Made Of Stone" - The Stone Roses
3. "Wouldn't It Be Nice?" - The Beach Boys
4. "The Scientist" - Coldplay
5. "Just Like Heaven" - The Cure
6. "You're Beautiful" - James Blunt
7. "I Want To Be There (When You Come)" - Echo & The Bunnymen
8. "Silly Girl" - The Desendents
9. "Don't Take Away My Heaven" - Aaron Neville
10. "Coffee & TV" - Blur
11. "All I Want" - The Lightning Seeds
12. "See A Little Light" - Bob Mould
13. "In My Life" - The Beatles

Pearl Jam - Vitalogy Demos July 1994

It's always good to find Pearl Jam demo's and share them with my good friends. Although I am most often trumped by my good blogger-friend Heather B. at 'I Am Fuel, You Are Friends', I still plug away at it. 'Vitalogy' was really the last Pearl Jam album I listened to as a whole. I still enjoy their live concert discs and assorted tracks but no longer just put one on and listen all the way through. Must be getting real old, eh? Two of my favorite songs of theirs are represented her in demo form and I am thrilled to hear them - 'Corduroy' and 'Better Man'. Hope you like it, too.

01 Warm Up
02 Last Exit
03 Corduroy
04 Guitar Effect #1
05 Spin the Black Circle
06 Not For You
07 Tremor Christ
08 Nothingman
09 Whipping
10 Satan's Bed
11 Bugs
12 Guitar Effect #2
13 Better Man
14 Hard to Imagine
15 Corduroy (Mix 2)
16 Corduroy (Mix 2)
17 Hard to Imagine

These are flac's and I am forbidden to encode them to mp3, so help yourselves once you get them!
