Just One Night / Eric Clapton

[Longhorn Review] Just One Night / Eric Clapton

Material Type: All, music — Posted on March 12, 2010, 12:35 pm

By: Clapton, Eric.

Clapton in his late 70's "Slowhand" phase, touring for his fine album
"Backless"...this record is filled with fiery EC performances and features the great
Albert Lee on second guitar...Most tracks far outshine the original studio
recordings...

Very nice extended compositions. Think the Taxi Driver soundtrack as done by
Michael Nyman.

Really excellent, heady postminimalism from the NY Downtown scene. One of the
better records of its kind.

The Baroque and classical trumpet

[Longhorn Review] The Baroque and classical trumpet

Material Type: All, music — Tags: baroque, classical, lp, trumpet — Posted on November 4, 2009, 10:46 am

By: Murray Hill Records

Apparently, Murray Hill records was a subsidiary of Random House, and mainly
re-released excellent material. Other sources claim this boxed set was released in
1970. Gorgeously recorded. My pressing is quite good -- I can not remark on the
condition of those at this library. Interesting academic material in the liner
notes.

Minstrel Show (sound recording)

[Longhorn Review] Minstrel Show (sound recording)

Material Type: All, music — Posted on December 19, 2008, 9:27 am

By: Kuhn, Joseph

This is a magnificent selection including "Preacher and the Bear" and "Asleep in
the Deep" Warren Biggs (Basso) was perhaps the finest bass singer in the history of
this "Pre-Politically Correct" format. I've got an original copy (still) in good
condition. Some of the jokes I still use -- the best involved a Hair
Restorer.

Hvarf / Heim

[Longhorn Review] Hvarf / Heim

Material Type: All, music — Tags: awesome, gorgeous, Iceland — Posted on November 17, 2008, 3:35 pm

By: Sigur Rós

Beautiful, gorgeous and awe-inspiring. "Heim" is "home" in Icelandic and the film
documents a number of (mostly) impromptu performances by Sigur Ros undertaken around
the island. This band is off in its' own world. Clearly, not 'rock' music --but it
still rocks at times --they have broken new territory and are doing something that
is dangerously emotional and that is hard to put into words.

Astral Glamour

[Longhorn Review] Astral Glamour

Material Type: All, music — Tags: falstaffpicks, new wave, punk — Posted on October 2, 2008, 11:26 am

By: The Homosexuals

Vampire Weekend was far from the first group to incorporate African influence
into snotty white kid music, and Radiohead was certainly not the first to try to
sell their music on their own.  The Homosexuals were a shifting group of punk
rockers in the UK who set out to make avant garde music in a totally insular,
outsider manner.  The result was they self-released a ton of projects on their own
label It's War Boys that ultimately sound like they may be the best DIY,
kitchen-sink pop recordings ever. Collected on three CDs in this set are all of the
recordings they issued as The Homosexuals.
