MY MUSIC LISTENING JOURNAL: DAY 266: SATURDAY NOVEMBER 10, 2018

ALBUMS

  • THE BEATLES: THE BEATLES [THE WHITE ALBUM} RE-ISSUE: 2018: DISCS 1 AND 2: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Christmas came early- when I got home yesterday evening the new White Album box set had been delivered. I had to get the big box- 6 CD’s and a Blu Ray. I’d go without meals if I had to. Although I am most anxious to hear Discs 3-6 I started with the first two discs which is the re-mastering of the album that came out 50 years ago this month [November 22, 1968}

 

LΟΟΚ ΝΟW (Deluxe 2CD). UK Edition

  • ELVIS COSTELLO: LOOK NOW: 2018: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Second listen to the new EC and it is setting in a little- a great set of songs. On the first listen I thought some of it sounded a bit like the album he made 20 years back with Burt Bacherach- and when I looked at the album credits on this- a few of the songs were written with Bacherach. Also one written with Carole King.

The Beatles (The White Album) [3 CD]

  • THE BEATLES: THE BEATLES: THE WHITE ALBUM: ESHER DEMOS: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: I have heard these before but they have never sounded so good. The Beatles at George Harrison’s house doing acoustic demos of what would become The White Album. These are so good they could have been released as the album. The Beatles Unplugged- decades ahead of time.

 

also listened to last Sunday’s edition of Celtic Crush with Larry Kirwan- on The Loft.

    • I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Bailey has been stunned by listening on line. He cannot get over how clear it all is… plus on the demos they are still enjoying playing with each other.

    • I listened to the demos again this morning and the first disc of outtakes- it does sound like no matter what problems they were having when they were playing it different- they were enjoying the music.

    • My first impression is -the same as yours- going to have to start a second go around. I am liking this a lot better than the Sgt. Pepper box. I have always loved this album but I find myself liking it even more.
