I Believe What You Say - Ricky Nelson

I bought this as part of a job lot of Elvis, Buddy Holly, and Ricky Nelson 45s sometime in the 70s. All had obviously been loved and were in perfect nick. At least one of the Ricky Nelson records has a photo of him cut out of a magazine pasted to the sleeve. I defy anyone to find any cut of this song that sounds any better than this 45, in fact it's one of the best sounding things in my collection. James Burton lets rip a couple notes early on which just hints at the sheer glory of the solo later - this sends shivers up my spine every time I hear it.

As a postscript Nelson cut a new version of this sometime in the eighties which I heard played on Round Table, a British radio review programme. As it was playing I thought to myself, "Why has he done this? The original was perfect." Dave Edmunds who was one of the reviewers then said exactly the same thing.

It sounds as tinny as fuck, it needs a good remaster to bring out the full sound quality required.

I can't believe people still collect this outdated and space taking mode of music when you can simply download everything or rip it from Youtube. :rolleyes:

This James Burton solo is one of the most famous and influential in early rock - it's terrific. Burton was known for using the lightest gauge strings he could find - even using banjo strings for the high E - yet he got a full tone out of his guitar. You've got a bit of musical history there.

And your point is, What? it's better to be ahistorical when it comes to music? Ignorance is a positive stance?

Mr Fantasy - Traffic

This the first LP I ever bought. The nearest place to sell records to where I went to school was the long-gone WH Austin in the Tything, Worcester. It was primarily a musical instrument shop but they kept a small but decent stock of vinyl which you could try before you bought. So it was as a callow 14 year old youth in 1968 that I walked up there one lunchtime with the 32 shillings and 6 pence which I'd diligently saved up. My mates were all into American bands like Moby Grape and Country Joe and the Fish but I decided to buy British. My choice was between Procol Harum and the Traffic album and choosing the latter proved to be a wise decision. I still play this record and the rest of my complete Traffic collection to this day; I went on to see them live three times and if push comes to shove I'd say that they're my all time favourite band.

Nice purchase from an excellent group.

The first album I ever bought was Johnny Cash With His Hot and Blue Guitar, on Sun.

I bought that fairly recently. I found an original 1959 UK issue (it came out two years after the US version) on a market stall in really good nick for £17.50 which was an excellent deal.

Good for you...and the thing for me is - it's still a good fresh sounding album.

Yes, it's so pleasant to ride on a bus driven by a professional driver, passengers don't want to fall asleep and miss out on any pleasantness. :)

Och, some wee cunt has hacked into our account, we ne'r poosted that. :angry:

Wee Johnny Cash was a nasty bit of work, and his cover of Nine Inch Nails' 'Hurt' soonded like a Highland banshee having it's bollocks minced for a haggis dish.

We cannae understand why he didnae do oor 'Fluffy Tufts'. :shrug:

But surely you appreciated Johnny's "genre-jump" to record Paul Anka's My Way and Barry Manilow's Copacabana, right? :) (I can't believe my luck in having speaks with the Cocteau Twins :pray: )

I am cramped into the BOQ shrine on the uphill grade out of Bim waiting for darkness and the rising of Zuben elbengubi - a holy occurrence. There was no way for you to have known this so I'll just say [1] internet reception in the shrine is the best this side of Bob White, WV, and [2] you three would be well advised to stuff oats into all the holes in your bodies. :pray:

An observation or two: "Banshee" is one of the few words direct into English from the Irish. I doubt if it's common usage in Scotland. Are you reaching out? :)

Johnny was usually doing his wife's fluffy tuft to be concerned with yours. :shake:

They make wonderful music but on a personal level I shall take your advice and steer clear of he Protties although coming across them in West Virginia seems remote. Thanks for taking the time to post the warning :)
