I can think of a few that were worse off, like INXS, post-Blackmore Deep Purple, post-Hackett Genesis, Yes without Jon Anderson, some Rainbow without Dio;JR8 wrote:Ah-so desuka [hnnnn] ?

There was an article about a new album that just came out, this is from it.
First time for me too, and I'm usually up on this stuff.
a) I never knew that Hendrix had a 'black' bassist at any point. I only recall seeing footage and photos with Noel Redding. Was he like Brian Jones, or Pete Best, the ones who got forgotten...
I prefer the Brian Jones Stones
b) I'd never really considered how a replacement band member changes a band. I had assumed that replacements were chosen, upon their ability to replicate what had gone. But now you mention it, why should that be?
Can be a big effect for fusion or Jazz bands
p.s. Side-meme, 'Bands that were *improved* by the replacement of a long-standing member'
I don;t not like that kind of thing, if I were in the right club, like Attica, but it's not the kind of thing I'd ever listen to outside a club.JR8 wrote:I've heard this song twice today. Once from my wife in the bathroom this am on her radio, then again while getting my haircut this pm over their radio. So I was sitting there thinking, hmmm what is this? Four chord song? ... probably. The 'power keyboards' (anthemic chords) really lift it up. What on earth is this? I like it!
I thought it was going to be Italian or Spanish house, as it really has that sort of statuesque open sound that they are renowned for... but imagine my surprise to discover it is...
Rihanna Only Girl (In The World) (Graham Norton Show)
p.s. I know her name, but don't know her baggage or market. Still like it though ....
But....if you like real old-style reggae, I have this great double-CD, will have to dig it outJR8 wrote:Burning Spear-Slavery days

I'm ok with such popcorn going on in the background at home while I do other things/work. If it were more serious music then it'd be a problem as it would hold my attentionBrah wrote: I don;t not like that kind of thing, if I were in the right club, like Attica, but it's not the kind of thing I'd ever listen to outside a club.
Yes, good call, there is something funny going on there and I couldn't figure it out either. She's belting out that song so effortlessly, AND even while doing pirouettes it seems. If she's miming it she does a good job.Brah wrote: Good that they did the electronics but used analog guitars and bass. Did I hear autotune?...

Found this just after I bought a through-the-years DVD

Thanks that was brilliant, and took a bit of intense listening in between filing my taxes. I wonder when YT started hosting whole albums...
