Heb je deze plaat gehoord, Zachary?

avatar van Zachary Glass
Yep - ben zelfs de gelukkige eigenaar van een exemplaar

En jawel - in mijn herinnering klonk het fantastisch. Maar ga er toch nog effe opnieuw naar luisteren voor ik stem.

Yep - da's de politiek: eerst opnieuw luisteren - dan pas stemmen

Krankzinnige klassieker.. Kriskras door de muziekgeschiedenis. Maakt op mij de indruk van een schizofrene musical! Vine Street en Palm Desert zijn voor mij de hoogtepunten.
Mijn versie heeft een bonustrack getiteld The Eagle and Me en ook die is briljant.

Doet me denken aan The Neon Philharmonic , maar die waren een jaar later ! in 1969. Tegendraadse violen en onverwachte wendingen , geen voorspellende muziek , het blijft spannend.

Net geluisterd..

Een beetje vreemd maar wel lekker!!

avatar van levenvergeten
Bij vlagen fantastisch.

ik ga niet eens proberen om dit album te omschrijven of iets nuttigs neer te zetten.
als u dit op cd kan krijgen, koop het!
luister het vlak voor het slapen gaan, als u zich slecht en/of moe voelt.
als u vrolijk bent of als u even wil chillen.
waren alle pop-albums maar zo wonderschoon.

het is niet bij vlagen fantastisch, dit album is een non stop avontuur.
gemiddelde is wat mij betreft veeels te laag.

Verkocht voor geen meter, dus:
'" In a promotional campaign Warner Bros. even offered two new copies for customers who sent in their worn-out pressings of the record for one cent. "

Van Dyke Parks, eigen muziek niet altijd even mijn ding, soms geniaal. dan mij weer wat te melig,maar als je ziet met wie die meneer allemaal heeft gewerkt; wow:

hij heeft dus met heeeeeel veel artiesten meegewerkt.

Eindelijk nog wat zinnigs te lezen door Oldfart's bericht.

Een fantastische plaat, die ik na jaren beluisteren nog steeds niet mee kan fluiten. Bovenaan in mijn top 10!
Gaat hij remixen (houd mijn hart vast)!
De lijst van Oldfart is mischien nog langer, staat Allen Tousaint erop?
Leuk is dat bij Duit On Mon Dei van Harry Nilsson op mijn exemplaar met een haastig opgeplakte sticker VanDyke alsnog credits krijgt, mischien wel karakteristiek voor de loopbaan van deze bescheiden meester.

Hij is vrijdag a.s.weer eens bij ons en wel in Rotterdam.
Op het programma van Lantaren Venster las ik:
Zijn label Bella Union brengt in die maand heruitgaven van drie klassieke albums uit. Gewaardeerde en visionaire albums van een van de invloedrijkste muzikanten uit de 20e eeuw.
Zo is het maat net, maar worden het remasters? Zou wel een buitenkansje zijn!.
Van Dyke heeft zich eens laten ontvallen met de productie van Song Cycle ontevreden te zijn.
Op Discover America ontbreekt op de europese persing een couplet.
En het prachtige maar veronachtzaamde Clang of the Yankee Reaper kom weer in de belangstelling.
Was Bananastan niet de naam van zijn label? Allemaal raadsels die hopelijk binnenkort worden opgelost.

Ongelooflijk prachtig album, waar nu inderdaad bij Bella Union een cd-remaster van verschenen is.
Toen ik het album op vinyl kocht, ergens in de jaren '70, snapte ik de muzikale logica niet zo erg, al was ik wel onmiddellijk betoverd door de prachtige arrangementen.

Op de remaster ontbreekt helaas The Eagle And Me, die wel als bonustrack stond op de Rykodisc-remaster uit 1999, maar die is me helaas ontgaan. Ook is er weinig informatie bijgevoegd, alleen de songteksten ontbreken niet. Het prachtige heldere geluid van de remaster maakt echter alles goed. Deze cd zal ik de komende tijd vaak draaien, dat staat vast.

Ik heb dit prachtige album maar eens in mijn Top 10 gezet...

En jawel - in mijn herinnering klonk het fantastisch. Maar ga er toch nog effe opnieuw naar luisteren voor ik stem.

Yep - da's de politiek: eerst opnieuw luisteren - dan pas stemmen

Je vond het dus niks ?
