Astonishing Garry …perfection like reading a good book the stories in the songs
Critics rate Pet Sounds but I just dont get the Beach Boys at all…just my opinion
All this genius status of Brain Wilson .
At school we had to sing The Sloop John B in music class and I used to hate it then and nothings changed.
Sorry to rant
Enjoy your evening

To be fair on Brian who was a genius. Sloop John B was a traditional song.

I’m a bit of a Beach boys fan, but don’t worry, won’t hold it against you :grin:, love early Beach boys up to pet sounds, then went a bit hit and miss, but that hasn’t stopped me owning 99% of what they have released, the Beatles all the way for me.

Enjoy the rest of your evening mate.

Buckethead - Colma

Now this is the best guitarist you will ever hear. Don’t take my word for it just listen to his whole catalogue and come back and tell me if I’m wrong.

Love the natural sound and production on this, especially with the drums. It’s got a groove too!

I dunno what it was with Les McCann and the Montreux Jazz Festival, but whenever he played there he and his band just kicked butt. Fortunately someone recorded his gigs and alongside the famous 1972 appearance we also have this phenomenal 1969 show:

Thanks mate …will watch with an open mind
I think my comments are probably out of ignorance and like a lot of things in life we can just dismiss to easily without really trying .
An album you really recommended to me which I gave a listen to earlier this year and was fabulous was this one …I took a pic and sent it to a music mate …with you have got to play this album
Wishing you a fine Friday
