Stumbled into some of Basinski's pieces on youtube when I was scouting around for another more rocky-ish ambiance band--southpacific (not to be confused with the moronic Broadway musical), and I spent the better part of an hour listening to Basinski's stuff. Minimalist and moody but haunting and mesmerizing, too.

Forgive the huge post-- this is two months worth of stuff.

Been having a demos/bootlegs/studio sessions/rarities phase. If anyone has anything in mind, I'd love recommendations. Only bothered listing the stuff I actually got something out of.

Normal stuff first:

King of the Delta Blues \ Robert Johnson - 5/5
Blonde on Blonde \ Bob Dylan - 4.5/5 (Grew on me)
Help! \ The Beatles - 4.5/5 (Grew on me-- Love "Ticket to Ride")
Stop Making Sense - 4.5/5 (Grew on me)
Howlin in the Moonlight \ Howlin Wolf - 4/5
Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust \ David Bowie - 4/5 (not nearly as good as Low)
Flaming Pie \ Paul McCartney - 3.5/5 (dropped back down a bit)
Kinks \ The Kinks - 3.5/5
In The Wee Small Hours \ Frank Sinatra - 3/5 (I like Mood Indigo)
Elegant Gyspy \ Al Di Meola - 3/5
Rumble! \ Link Wray - 3/5
The Doors \ The Doors - 3/5
Dusty in Memphis \ Dusty Springfield - 2.5/5
Highway 61 Revisited \ Bob Dylan - 2.5/5 (did not grow on me)

Alternates/Bootlegs/Sessions/Rarities/Demos:
(don't know how to rate alot of them, but I only listed the ones that I got something out of)

Beatles in Mono \ The Beatles - 5/5
Excellent. I think I prefer all/most of the actual mixes to Stereo, although the quality isn't quite as good. Want to buy this, but it's so damn expensive ($260!!!). Biggest difference is definitely White Album, Sgt. Peppers (This pushed it back up to one of my favorite albums again, after losing interest in it for a while), and Magical Mystery Tour.

What's the deal with not offering each individual album in mono? I only want to buy a few.

Raw Power (Iggy Mix) \ Stooges - 5/5
Raw Power (Bowie Mix \ Stooges - 3.5/5

The Iggy Mix is one of my favorite albums ever. So damn raunchy, weighty, and gritty. Prefer it to the original.

Pet Sounds Sessions \ Beach Boys - 5/5
I always liked Pet Sounds but it didn't blow my mind. I listened to the 3rd disc of this, which is the Vocals Only version of the album, and I'm thoroughly in love with the album now-- Don't know if anyone else feels this way, but I love it stripped down because the harmonies, their greatest strength, are front and center, whereas the overpolished music in the studio album drowns them out to a degree. Vocals Only version of Pet Sounds is now one of my favorite albums.

Peel Slowly and See \ Velvet Underground - 5/5
I totally prefer and love the Closet Mix of the album, "The Velvet Underground". Lot of great stuff here.

Blood on the Tracks: New York Recordings - 4.5/5
Really good versions

Complete Peel Sessions \ Jesus and Mary Chain - 4 or 4.5/5
I really like the feel of ultra-echo-y, accoustic, less distortion JAMC. Favorites are Some Candy Talking, Cut Dead, and In the Rain. Alot of their songs remind me of Heroin by the Velvets, for some reason (which I love).

Revolver Sessions/White Sessions/Soul Sessions - The Beatles - N/A
Annoying how all the versions of Revolution 1 have this artsy nonsensical Ono dialogue over it. I prefer the dirty demo versions of "Yer Blues" alot more than the studio version. LOVED the alternate take 7 version of Here There and Everywhere and the different stripped down sections of Tomorrow Never Knows. My Favorite moment was listening to She Said She Said develop from nothing (or at least something that sounded really awkward) to something, just from playing around with the notes/tone of the intro.

Smile Sessions \ Beach Boys - N/A
Not something that gives you a full experience of any sort, because the album was really incomplete, but it definitely gives me the impression that the album would have been better had it been done back then. The vocals in Heroes and Villains and so much more smooth and beautiful. Wish someone could have combined this vocal track with the Brian Wilson production somehow.

Accoustic Masterpieces - Esher Demos \ The Beatles - N/A
Really cool. Even though the versions are obviously rough, I honestly prefer some of the feel/sequencing of this to the produced result. Really laid back and makes you appreciate how brilliant these guys are at coming up with songs. Favorite moment was the George Harrison section in the middle with a pre-anthology version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps and a great sounding Sour Milk Sea (I love that song-- how the hell did it not make the album!?)

Martin Hannet's Personal Mixes \ Joy Division - N/A
Awesome, although I'm not too sure what the differences were in each version. Something feels extra cool about them though, which may just be my mind playing tricks on me. I've heard that alot of people feel the opposite, but I personally love what Martin Hannet did for Joy Division. He added a really fine layer of cool over everything.

Antrabata Studio Sessions \ Led Zeppelin - N/A
Dark Side of the Moon Immersion Box/Rehearsals \ Pink Floyd - N/A
The Complete Raw Mixes \ The Stooges - N/A
Fully Loaded \ Velvet Underground - N/A
Bowie At the Beeb \ David Bowie - N/A
Complete Peel Sessions \ The Fall - N/A
Early Takes Volume 1 \ George Harison - N/A
Axis Outtakes \ Jimi Hendrix - N/A
(anything to get more versions of Little Wing)
BBC Sessions \ Led Zeppelin - N/A
BBC Archives \ Pink Floyd - N/A
Scepter Studio Sessions \ Velvet Underground - N/A
Lost Demos \ The Stone Roses - N/A


Highlights:

Wouldn't It Be Nice/God Only Knows Vocals Only, Our Prayers/Heroes and Villains/Wonderful Sessions (Beach Boys)
Revolution/Rain/I'm Only Sleeping/Within You Without You/Sgt Peppers Reprise Mono (Beatles)
Because/Something/Sour Milk Sea/Here There and Everywhere, Strawberry Fields Early Takes (Beatles)

Isn't it a Pity/Wah Wah Demo (Harrison)

J&MC definitely spent a lot of time listening to the Velvet Underground. You can hear it for sure.

I'm kind surprised that Face to Face is so high up on your list. It's great album but I guess I'm just used to see Village Green Preservation Society above it.

Surprisingly, I had a ton of trouble getting into most of the other Kinks albums (outside of liking songs here and there). I like their early stuff better. I think Face to Face is brilliant. I initially struggled with it when TheJickler and Kihei were pushing it (songs like Party Line and Session Man sounded really cheesy and put me off at first for some reason), but I like it more and more everytime I listen to it. Now I think it's perfect.

The fact that VGPS is considered their magnum opous over their other albums is still a complete headscratcher to me. What stands out about it? Which are the better songs?

I'm not sure which Kinks album I like better. VGPS seems like a bit of a concept album, which is what I think helps elevate it in some rankings.

I think every song on it is great or near great except a couple near the end. I think the best songs are
Picture Book, Animal Farm, Johnny Thunder...

But my favorite Kinks song is Rosie Won't You Please Come Home from Face to Face.

I like Face to Face, but my favourite album of the '60s, including Beatles albums, is The Kink Kontroversy, so I recommend that strongly. It has only one semi-hit on it, Til the End of the Day, which is the umpteenth reiteration of You Really Got Me, but every other cut is extremely tasty. To me this is as close as an album gets to being perfect until Loveless by My Bloody Valentine came around a couple of decades plus later.

And actually at the moment I'm listening to Eric Clapton's From the Cradle, a collection of blues straight from the canon. Just felt the urge.

I really love that one too (more than the non-Face-to-Face ones) and can see it growing on me alot, but there are still parts of it that I've had trouble getting into. I think the "feel" of the parts that I like is absolutely perfect. More than any other band, when I think of classic old-fashioned infectious rock and roll, for whatever reason, that era of the Kinks is what I think of above all other bands. (the ones that I like more don't feel like they completely belong to that era, and the ones who feel like they do I don't like nearly as much)

I generally don't like the different iterations of You Really Got Me (I don't like All Day and All of the Night very much at all), but Till the End of the Day really works for me.

I always like to grab songs here and there from the later Kinks albums, but I never have the urge/interest to play through them from start to finish for whatever reason.

Albums I got into since the last post from about 6 months ago.

5/5

The Complete Village Vanguard Recordings by Bill Evans Trio
(I don't think I've ever lost myself in music and appreciated chemistry more than this-- makes me completely melt and feels perfectly catered to the laid back, stripped down (without Horns/Trumpets/Sax's) breezy style of Jazz that I prefer-- Absolutely in love with the drummer/bassists' style)

Live 1966: The Royal Albert Hall Concert by Bob Dylan & The Band
(this is an incredible summation of Bob Dylan, and in my opinion his best disc-- I'm surprised it doesn't get mentioned more often when people are looking to get into his stuff-- Feels like easily the most accessible starting point as well)

Spiritual Unity by Albert Ayler (the first Free Jazz-related thing that I love)
Moanin' by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers
Somethin' Else by Cannonball Adderley
Mingus Mingus Mingus by Charles Mingus
Dub From the Roots by King Tubby (hadn't heard of this genre before this-- really cool stuff)
East of the River Nile by Augustus Pablo
The Incredible Jazz Guitar of by Wes Montgomery

4.5/5
Saxophone Collussus by Sonny Rollins
Warsaw by Warsaw (technically imperfect but I don't give a damn, one of the most infectious punk albums I've heard)
In C by Terry Riley (growing on me)
Giant Steps by John Coltrane (Coltrane's taking a while to grow on me, but this is my favorite of his at the moment)
UFO by Guru Guru
Nocturne No. 2 by Chopin (tried to get into Classical music and didn't really click-- this was kind of the only thing I really got out of it)
Neu!75 by Neu! (skyrocketed for me)
Lightning Hopkins by Lightning Hopkins
The Legend of Blind Joe Death by John Fahey (going to keep an eye out for more of this type of stuff)
A Love Supreme by John Coltrane
Portrait in Jazz by Bill Evans

4/5
Chuck Berry is On Top by Chuck Berry
Safe as Milk by Captain Beefheart (still have trouble with Trout Mask Replica, but I'm starting to slowly appreciate his earlier stuff)
Explorations by Bill Evans Trio
Zombie by Fela Kuti
The Everley Brothers (They're Off and Rollin) by The Everley Brothers
Mirror Man by Captain Beefheart
Time Out by Dave Brubeck
My Favorite Things by John Coltrane
Blue Train by John Coltrane
Live at the Apollo by James Brown

3.5/5
Lick My Decals Off Baby by Captain Beefheart
The Sidewinder by Lee Morgan
African High Life by Solomon Ilori (only managed to enjoy a few things including this, from trying a bunch of World Music--- Mongolian Throat Singing or whatever just isn't for me-- this might rise, I like how it feels like Jazz but it's African music)
Arkology by Lee Perry
The Perfect Prescription by Spacemen 3000
Super Ape by Lee Perry
Blackboard Jungle by Lee Perry
Music for 18 Musicians by Steve Reich
Vision Creation Newsun by Boredoms

3/5
The Roots of Dub by King Tubby
Congotronics by Konono N1
The Black President by Fela Kuti
Os Mutantes by Os Mutantes

Neutral
Catch a Fire by Bob Marley
Kraftwerk by Kraftwerk
Termination Dub by King Tubby
Best of the Classic Years by King Sunny Ade
