Tattoo - The Who - The Who Sell Out (Vinyl, LP, Album)
Ted Nugent - Scream Dream S - Present Self-styled 'wild man of rock', Ted Nugent's antics include hunting with bow and arrow and wearing a loin c Thursday, September 30, W. Before things get too serious here at Rock On Vinyl, I thought it might be fun to post a song at the end of each month, that could be categorized as being either W eird, O bscure, C razy or just plain K orny. So, this post consists of most of Gunston's single releases - some I own and some I found on the internet.
One that I don't have is his rendition of "Suicide Blonde" so if anyone out there has it, Tattoo - The Who - The Who Sell Out (Vinyl love to hear from ya. But all jokes aside, I've always had the greatest respect for McDonald as both an actor and very funny comedian.
I'm thankful for all the laughs and hysteria that he provided me during my adolescent years. And thus, the reason why I chose to 'single him out' this month. The singles contained in this post are as follows:. S - Present. One of the most 'bootlegged' bands, these two 'Unlicensed' recordings come from two distinctly different periods in the bands musical career. To kick off, the following is an extract from a tour review, published by the Classic Rock Magazine in July, It provides an in depth account of what it was like to tour with two of the biggest named rock acts in the US at the time.
May 12, Lars Ulrich of Metallica and Slash of Guns 'n' Roses hold a press conference in Los Angeles to announce a joint co-headlining tour between the two bands, set to begin July. James Hetfield guitar-Metallica : Here's the battle - heads down heavy metal versus L. A pomp and pumped-up hair. That's what it is. Bling versus dirt. Axl Rose: We wanted to do a tour with Metallica since the day we started. We worked real hard to pull this thing together.
We paid them a few million dollars more than they deserved because they wouldn't do it unless they got paid a certain amount. And the only way we could get 'em to do it was if we called it 'co-headlining'. So, fine, we call it 'co-headlining'. But when the shit all went down, the motherfuckers couldn't live with it. Lars Ulrich drummer-Metallica : If it was left to the managers, agents and accountants, this would never have got off the ground.
Whenever we had a stumbling block, we'd all sit down and work it out. Lars Urlich: We probably got to a point where we were being too petty about every detail but, to make it work, the shirts and the passes and whatever all had separate Metallica and Guns versions, with each on the left or on the top.
If that's the kind of stuff it takes to get the tour off the ground July Life magazine reported: The crew accompanying Guns 'n' Rose is made up of about 80 people, including four bodyguards hired, in part, to keep the drug pushers and sex-crazed fans out of temptation's path. They've formed a family.
For some of these people it is the only family they have ever really known. Los Angeles Daily News: Guns 'n' Roses took more than 90 minutes to set up, which was more than enough time for restless throng of concert goers to make mischief. But not everyone was amused by the debauchery or Guns 'n' Roses' tardiness. Some fans had to leave the stadium early. Those who could stay were treated the usual uneven Guns 'n' Roses set. The momentum was severely diminished by lengthy and pointless solos by guitarist Slash and Gilby Clarke, as well as drummer Matt Sorum.
The band never gained its footing and the crowd slowly thinned. Some of the remaining fans were spied sleeping or just sitting, with bored expressions on their faces. Unlike Guns 'n' Roses, Metallica seems fully aware that this tour presents a marvelous opportunity. In a performance that could only be compared to Attila The Hun's tour of Mongolia, Metallica storm-trooped its way to the hearts of the crowd.
Their set was simply superb - more than 90 minutes of non-stop musical mayhem. After Axl is diagnosed as having damaged his vocal chords, the next three Tattoo - The Who - The Who Sell Out (Vinyl have to be rescheduled.
Bill Gould Bassist, Faith No More : Every band in the world might think they want to open for Guns 'n' Roses but, lemme tell you, it's been a real ugly personal experience having to deal with all the shit that surrounds this fucking circus.
Mike Patton Singer, Faith No More : They were playing one night, and Duff walks up to Axl and pats him on the head, like a loving comrade type thing, Album) Axl Rose immediately brings the show to a halt.
This is in front of 80, people and Axl screams: "Don't you ever touch my head again, motherfucker". Duff just walked away, wounded. We found out later that it was because he's going bald and he's worried that if you touch his hair it'll fall out. The first song to be written specifically for the concept was "Jaguar", paying tribute to the car, which was quickly followed by an instrumental the group had recorded for Coca-Cola.
Having finished touring the US, including an appearance at the Monterey Pop Festivalthe group returned to the UK on 16 September to start recording. They made progress on the album for the next three weeks; the first song to be completed was the single, " I Can See for Miles ", released the following month. The album was mixed by Lambert and Damon Lyon-Shaw intermittently throughout November, coming up with a finished master on the 20th.
The cover is divided into panels featuring a photograph by David Montgomery of each of the band members, two on the front and two on the back. On the front is Pete Townshend applying Odorono brand deodorant from an oversized stick, and Roger Daltrey sitting in a bathtub full of Heinz baked beans holding an oversized tin can of the same.
Original vinyl copies of Sell Out end with an audio oddity that repeats into a locked groove In response to the Beatles ' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. The music in the locked groove is a snippet of what was originally intended to be a vocal jingle for the Who's UK label Track Records. They came with a sticker on the front cover stating 'Free Psychedelic Poster Inside'.
The 20" x 30"poster was reinstated into the vinyl packaging when The Who's back catalogue of studio albums was restored to vinyl in The album was released in the UK on 15 December It reached number 13 in the charts. The original release date of 17 November had been pushed back due to arguments about the running order. It was released in the US on 6 Januaryreaching number In a contemporary review for Rolling StoneJann Wenner called The Who Sell Out "fantastic" and praised its "exquisite" sense of humor and the Who's "consummate" musicianship, which includes "wholly original" instrumentation and cleverly placed electronic sounds.
Marsh believed the album's essence is "most tightly linked to the glorious pop insanity that psychedelia and its aftermath destroyed forever. And the music is sensational". All songs written by Pete Townshendexcept where noted.
The between song jingles apparently have no official titles and are not listed anywhere on the original album Album) although they are listed in the inner booklet of the remaster. This edition contains the original album in stereo on disc one, the mono mix on disc two, and bonus tracks on both discs.

Pop Chronicles. LP 1 No. London: Plexus. And what condition are those in? Someone should write a book on how to value the White Album alone. Apparently, Sid Vicious smashed up a toilet and Johnny Rotten gobbed off at the office staff. Naughty boys. Only a small amount survived the cull. The complete package, including the original luncheon invite, attracts the top-end prices. Even though Led Zeppelin is well-loved now, a lot of major press hated it upon release back in Sounds like our karaoke performance on a Saturday night.
The song was originally recorded for their previous album, Emotional Rescue. These are great songs. The unexpected bonus here is that side B has the best soloing on the album. Former Stone Mick Taylor also delivers the goods during his searing melodic solo turn on Topswhich dates back to the Goats Head Soup sessions. This is high level musicianship. Tattoo Yo u is a triumph. Bon appetite! Rocky Taylor: Probably the last Stones album worth owning, even if it feels more like a b-side collection rather than a true LP.
I may have to re-evaluate that idea, because Tattoo You has a lot to like. Ironically, this might be the oldest vinyl in my collection that was originally purchased in my household though it could be beaten out by the K-tel compilation Pure Rock. Despite the time, I remembered some of the songs beyond the bookend hits. For me, the funky groove of Slave works so much better than the disco experiment Miss You from years prior.
But those ballads! It might be odd to hear multiple slower songs in a row, but like other reviewers, to me they are absolute gems despite the fact that my ears detected in No Use in Crying some mild theft from the sixties hit Time is on My Side by… oh, The Rolling Stones.
Waiting On A Friend is probably one of my top five favourite Stones songs and an excellent choice for a single above the other fine sounding ballads.
There are some fine performances throughout the album. I repeatedly enjoyed the assorted horn solos. The guitar work is understated but very tasty throughout. Alex Hayes : I'd only gone online to check out the football scores. My sister had been to a match in Huddersfield that evening, and I was just casually checking to see how the game had finished up. In doing so, I came across a far bigger news story, one that left me feeling pretty empty.
I'm a fan of plenty of rock and metal bands, but The Rolling Stones are one of the select few right up there on my own personal Mount Rushmore. The word 'iconic' is thrown around far too often nowadays, but perfectly sums up this legendary band, its huge body of music, and its principal members. These guys are the absolute epitome of rock'n'roll to me.
Sadly, we were reminded last week that they are regular mortals after all. The Stones' ever-steady heartbeat and Tattoo - The Who - The Who Sell Out (Vinyl overlord Charlie Watts has left us.
Technically speaking, as the Stones' music is actually led by Keith Richards' rhythm guitar as opposed to the drums, there's really nothing to stop the band from soldiering on, and I suspect they probably will. Without Charlie there though, providing that rock solid foundation through his almost metronomic sense of timing and swing, the Stones will never be the same. He was a one in a million and will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Charlie. This all happened in the week that the Stones' classic Tattoo You album celebrated its 40th anniversary.
I love Tattoo You. It's a far better album than it really has any right to be, given the piecemeal way that it was assembled. Speaking of my sister, I mentioned to her yesterday that Tattoo You was this weeks album for the Club, and got a non-committal, 'meh, never listened to it' kind of reply.
Of course, that sentiment wasn't entirely true. Tattoo You just so happens to open with one of the Stones' most recognisable songs. Non-fans of the band may well have never taken the time to listen to this album, but they've almost certainly heard at least one track from it. In a perfect world, all albums would kick off with a riff as iconic - there's that word again - as Start Me Up.
The Stones' biggest hit of the s, it's also the opening salvo of Tattoo You 's more uptempo, rock'n'roll-centred first half.
