My wife and I celebrated our anniversary yesterday.

The Orb, "Metal Spheres" ("featuring David Gilmour"). This isn't a combination I would have expected. The Orb makes what gets called "ambient" music. David Gilmour is known for playing guitar for Pink Floyd. I find the album pleasantly amusing somehow. The album has two tracks ("Metal" and "Spheres") but not even a clear break between them.

This was my favourite song last year. Even though it did not come out last year, I gave it that title because it was so good. I really like all of her music.

Thanks for the Leondard Cohen tracks, Ben. My partner sometimes says "put on the old guy", referring to the DVD of a couple of years ago... :tongue:

She does appreciate "My Wife's Home Town", though...

But, back to Leonard. Unfortunately this video (from Toronto) leaves out the intro: "This is for Lenny, ... if he's still here" and the first verse...

Cool to see Scarlet Rivera on violin, T-Bone Burnett making faces, post-Bowie Mick Ronson, and a ninteen-year old David Mansfield hanging out behind Sarlet... Now if I only still had a VHS player I could dig out the whole of Renaldo and Clara...

Thanks Mike.
The new Cohen album "Old Ideas" is good. Very worthwhile! I purchased it for $12 on CDWow and it was here within a week.
The DVD must be of the London Concert?? I've got the CD of that and its near-identical duplicate of his concert in Melbourne which I attended.
My Wife's Home Town: what a brilliant song! I love it!
Great video of Bob doing Isis. It looks like the same hat he is wearing on the cover of Desire. That face paint - what on earth was he thinking?

Hi Ben,

Yes, I think it's the London DVD.

In the context of the whole Rolling Thunder Revue thing it does make some sense... Kind of. Sam Shepard, who Bob invited to hang out on the tour, along with Allen Ginsberg, writes in his book about the tour: Rolling Thunder Logbook
http://www.amazon.com/Rolling-Thunder-L ... 0306813718
that the cocaine came in duffel bags... (Not that I'd recommend that sort of behaviour...).

I picked up the DVD Miles Davis, Live at Montreaux Highlights 1973-1991 a few weeks ago, and Jo Jo is one of the real highlights from 1989 (The video above is actually from a different festival).

Davis is 63, with a band of hot-shot musicians mostly less than half his age. The thing I love here is his face-to-face hand-on-shoulder interaction with Foley McCreary (playing a bass strung with guitar strings). Davis' bands weren't just a case of "take your turn to solo", this is direct transmission from master and student...

I saw this band at around that time in Hong Kong. Which was great, but unfortunately at the time I had little appreciation that I was seeing one of the geniuses of the 20th Century...
