Gab looks like an interesting place…

I have a ‘friend’ who tells me the people are globally united, and that ‘we’ (non-wealthy people, I think he means, although he owns property on tropical islands, multiple vehicles, and so on, but you know, he’s one of the ‘good ones’ so it doesn’t count, right?) have “already won” and he’s very happy because he didn’t even have to do anything, he just sits on social media and slavery of all kinds, including financial, is going to very soon be eliminated for-eh-ver.

I guess my point is, whatever else you might feel a temptation to do, it might be proper to make going and doing consequential things into a priority, while you may still have time to do so, and relegate the chatting about it to the back-burner until the frog legs are finished cookin’.

So to speak.

It’s Groundhog Day. If you don’t understand why this song is relevant you’ll have to Google it.

"Roundabout" by Yes

What Makes This Song Great? Rick Beato on Roundabout

Music producer Rick Beato is a monster! Seemingly, the dude knows everything.

Back in 2018, Rick published his breakdown of the song Roundabout by prog-rock group Yes. Beato used his computer to isolate individual instrument and vocal tracks, explaining exactly how the song was constructed. Along the way, Beato played a few of the guitar and organ parts himself, making it easy to see the fingerings that were used.

What a delight!

Last month, Bill Bruford, the drummer for Yes, reposted the whole thing, saying of Beato, "I enjoy Beato’s analyses; he always seems spot-on even with the over-use of the word ‘incredible’." Lol.

Check it out.

I’m a huge Yes fan (at least until around 1980), and Roundabout is one my favorite songs. I didn’t know about that video – will check it out.

Listening to Beato's breakdown of Roundabout got me a little excited. His analysis is not just for musicians. Anyone who likes the tune will probably be hooked in the first couple of minutes.

I stumbled into this new, remastered Fagen/Becker townhall setting performance, no longer bass-shy and more distinct individual voices and instruments “hearable”, excellent audio (and video) rendition:

The place I work is so dead silent that we have speakers that play white noise so we don’t eavesdrop by accident. So yea, I’m listening to white noise. Flat Stare

"Josie" by Steely Dan

The WEIRDEST Pop Song Intro of All Time

"Before Pro-Tools, there were pros!" So says Rick Beato in this breakdown of the song Josie from the 1977 album Aja.

A quick look at the list of players joining Walter Becker and Donald Fagen makes the point. Studio greats Larry Carlton, Dean Parks, Victor Feldman, Chuck Rainey and Jim Keltner are all present.

Boomers have the bad habit of saying that music was better back their day. The truth is that every generation produces its own musical masterpieces. Nevertheless, songs like Josie make it easy to fall into the trap. Most of today's music sounds more than a little thin compared to songs like this.

Of course, the same was true back in 1977.

 

 

For those that want to hear the full song without interruptions, here is the link from Steely Dan's official YouTube channel:

"When You Say Nothing At All"

Alison Krauss & Union Station

Jerry Douglas and the rest of the gang are all here, but the focus is on the angelic voice of Alison Krauss. This performance comes from the Austin City Limits broadcast in 2000.

Enjoy.

 

 

Check out my post from last October that features Jerry Douglas:

Thanks for this great link!

Now I know how artists/musicians listen to music.

I bought this Aja vinyl years ago when it came out.

Great stuff from, to me, one of the two greatest bands (Chicago band is the other one) of all time.

The original Convoy. C.W. McCall https://youtu.be/lqYTX7parRw
A different version was used in the movie. Then we have one from a year ago in Canada. https://youtu.be/dDzHtBZO5wE And now we have a new version not entirely from Canada but about it. https://youtu.be/CJ8SPkcM0aI
Various new versions are popping up every day now.

Playing Boogie Woogie at a London Subway Station

Brendan Kavanagh Stoking Up a Party in the Underground

Here is proof that music is too important to be left up to experts!

I'm blown away by how much fun this guy Brendan Kavanagh creates playing the pianos of the London Underground. His videos are addictive. I've binged on a bunch of them.

"The Endless Enigma"

Emerson, Lake and Palmer

Of course, I do love me some experts, too!

 

 

Here is the same song with an introductory musical analysis provided by classical composer Doug Helvering:
