Fall In Love All Over Again 08-20-2002 17:48 Forum: General Discussion


After leaving MrBD alone for a couple months, I recently started listening to it again.

Incredible.

It's like DA saw the current fascination with guitar-rock (Strokes, Hives, Stripes) that early on and decided to jump ahead of the curve.

It's funny how that far into a band's lifetime, not only do they record the album of a career but they could make me change what is arguably now my favorite Daniel Amos disc.

Would that all bands had that kind of longevity.

The good thing about this project... 08-20-2002 17:43 Forum: General Discussion


Every time I check up on this Frankenstein, the excitement's still there. Do you know how many projects get a major enery charge at the beginning and lose it within days of announcement?

I'm glad everyone's sticking to their guns and can't wait to hear all the stuff that comes of it. Oh by the way, BD... I'm working on a couple good JPEGs for the thing and should sent them your way by week's end.

I like your DFBB, Doc! 08-13-2002 20:14 Forum: General Discussion


Does that help?

Besides, you must understand that I spent four consecutive days and nights doing my thing, slaving away in the Jersey heat trying to figure out what went where.

Whereas you probably have a life and a chance at attracting members of the opposite sex...

Oh, sweet Yamaha keyboard. Only YOU and God truly understand me.

Strange Days indeed! (Most peculiar, mama!) 08-13-2002 06:47 Forum: General Discussion


Thanks for the positive feedback. Y'all heard me and the piano... Wait 'til you hear the rest of it with the "full" arrangement.

But, of course, you'll have to wait until October / November. Hopefully, this'll skew more towards October, because that's my birthday.

But anyway, thanks for the kind word folks. I hope the rest of my attempt won't disappoint!

Two Pronged Attack 08-09-2002 22:04 Forum: General Discussion


First off, this post is to throw the thread back to the top.

Second, I like the Kalhoun parody cover for DAmb It! a lot. It's pretty sweet. Still, if there's any need for more art and stuff, consider me. In fact, I was toying with an Alarma Chronicles-like idea (that seriously is not at all serious)but may prove to be too much for such a fun, small project as this. Still, if the call goes out, I will answer it!

Finally, even though we're all liable to make prize asses of ourselves with this (and what's so bad about THAT?) I think we should send a copy of this out to Orange County, if only to prove to the boys that they needn't fear competition anytime soon.

We kid 'cuz we love.

Commentary! Whee-Hoo! 08-09-2002 08:55 Forum: General Discussion


So anyway, folks...

Yeah, I took "Strange Days" from "Outdoor Elvis". It's off to DorkLand where the fried peanut butter/ bananna sammitches aren't cloudy all day.

The whole thing was recorded on the home PC hard drive using my handy-dandy Yamaha keyboard and a truly awful Radio Shack microphone. Y'all will get to hear me croon WAAAY low like Terry and play some dirge-like keyboard parts.

Don't let the self-deprication fool you, I'm actually quite taken by the results. It came out sadder than I thought, much more elegaic than I really planned but it fits the subject matter. I mean, I perceive "Strange Days" as a statement that "these things are good, true, and are things we should strive to do... but human nature would never allow us to be so magnanimous"...

Hope everyone enjoys me making eine fool of myself!

Shoulda, Woulda, Couldas 07-17-2002 16:40 Forum: General Discussion


You know, I've tried in the past to make Terry-mix CDs, but a couple things have dogged my efforts.

1) I sometimes find it hard to separate parts from the whole... I love songs from Doppelganger, Motorcycle and Songs of the Heart, but I love them more in their own context. Taking them apart seems to affect my sense of the things. This is probably why "World Famous..." is my least-played Terry involved disc (even to Sacred Cows!).


2) On the same page as number one, selecting particular songs is difficult enough. Harder still is the finished product and the second guessing over why I did/didn't include certain songs.

3) There's too much to choose from!

It's enough to nuts you drive, sez I...

Sounds fishy. 07-13-2002 09:42 Forum: General Discussion


Sounds like KMG held back "10 Songs" in order to dice up the album and feed individual songs to different compilation projects. Wanting fans would go pick up all the comps just to cull together a "10 Songs" group and KMG would make a ton more than if they simply re-released the recording.


At least that's my take on it.

ServantSteve - Opinion of CCM 07-03-2002 10:27 Forum: General Discussion


Hey there.

I've made this statement before. I'll probably make it again several times in the future too. Stay tuned!

Here it is: Inherently, there's nothing wrong with CCM. It's there. It exists. But it's just like the regular pop music that's out there in the so-called secular music industry. It relies so heavily on tricks and cliches that it's like you've heard one and then all of them. When we natter on about good vs. bad music on this site, many of us have listened to this stuff for decades and, because of that, have grown irritable with those chestnuts.

We like DA a lot because the sound of the music, while always contemporary, is never beholden to trends. And Terry Taylor doesn't talk down to his audience, not feeling the need to strap doilies onto unpleasant truths or to shy away from references his listeners may not get.

Conversely, a good chunk of CCM seems to dwell on bumper-sticker polemics and feel-good praiseology. Remember that even while we're called to be of cheer, it's a hard thing to do in a tough, money-driven world. So what deserves reporting, the cheer or the struggle?

Don't mind when we get edgy here. We ramble on about all kinds of topics and have different ways of expressing ourselves but, rest assured, most of us are good people! (tee-hee).

Two Cents, No Sense, Fine Everybody! 07-03-2002 10:12 Forum: General Discussion


I always saw Vox Humana as a DA album, or more to the point it's a transition. It has a tongue-in-cheek approach to a majority of the songs that disappears on Fearful Symmetry, obviously a darker, thought-provoking record. Still, there on the cover, DA is prominently featured against the bold, spelled-out Daniel Amos name.

And think about it, that Daniel Amos to DA difference is very much a tonal shift as all the light-hearted asides were shifted to the Eddies. Some of it crept back in on Motorcycle (Jerry's influence?) but Daniel Amos as band seemed to have grown to take things more seriously from Humana and thereafter.

I'm hoping to scrounge enough scratch for Little, Big and WEWH Bookset sometime soon. Hopefully, they'll still be available then!

As for "Devil's Elbow", if it sounds like Wilco's "War on War" then that can only be a positive thing. "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" is Tweedy and Co.'s best effort ever and certainly a welcome addition to Nonesuch's esteemed roster.

Let's Spin sold pretty well, but... 06-28-2002 18:01 Forum: General Discussion


During it's initial release, there was way big mystery about who the band actually was. The Wilbury-esque pennames were fodder for an Alarma Records contest back when, so it's easy to see how interest could be stirred up.

Of course, once it was determined that this was the demented cousin of DA, it fell back into the hands of the fans (more or less).

And Shotgun Angel was the biggest full-on DA release.

Will there be copies of \"10 Songs \" available here too? 06-25-2002 21:33 Forum: General Discussion


I mean, I'm not going to Cornerstone AGAIN. At this rate,
I don't think I ever will... But I'd love to get my hands on "10 Songs" on CD. My wallet is in such terrible pain right now. First there's "Little, Big", then "Digital Spittle", "Big", New Dogs, New Roe, and now this.

I think I need a second job.

On the one hand, I'm happy that 26+ years on, TsT is still very much active in writing and recording, because a lot of musicians don't have that longevity.

On the other hand, I can't afford his prolific tendencies! I didn't preorder WEWH, I'll get Little,Big but I have no idea what Big is, or the content of Dr. Taylor 2 or Imaginarium 2 (I don't even have 1!), and my wallet is surprisingly unsympathetic.

Someone get that man to chill out, will ya?

Small details for LITTLE, big ? 05-30-2002 11:28 Forum: General Discussion


Just some questions about LITTLE, big. Anyone out there can help but I'm assuming the Audioris have the answers...

First, is this a Silent Planet, Galaxy 21 or Stunt disc?

Will there be a preorder on this site or has the whole preorder thing sort of fallen apart?

When Terry says "Beach Boys", should we assume Surfonic-like tunes or more like Teenage Symphonies To God like "Soon"?

Just wondering.

Tough to discern 04-21-2002 09:45 Forum: General Discussion


I have an armload of reviewer's discs to wade through, some have been interesting and others not so much... It's weird. If you send your demo to the big labels and they inundate you with "not for sale" discs, does that mean "eh cumpari, welcome to the familia" or "more like THIS, please..."

I figured that if I listen to loud stuff, it'll stray toward Deliverance's "River Disturbance", "Terria" by Devin Townsend... Maybe a little of the new Dream Theater "Six Degrees of Inner Turmoil".

If I go quietly, and it's l;ooking more and more that way, I'm going "Mr. Buechner disc one", Mark Heard "High Noon", a heap of Pinetop Seven, Tom Waits "Mule Variations" and probably "Avocado Faultline"...

It ain't easy.

I'm listening to the new Korn thing, "Untouchable", but I'm enjoying the new Jerry Cantrell "Degradation Trip" and "Mr. Buechner's Dream - And So It Goes".
