Tunes of the Day

Postby Mario 2 » Sun Dec 19, 2004 7:10 am

Foundation Rockers -- Ryan Moore meets Bro Culture
Rolling Thunder : Ryan Moore meets Sparklehorse
Sunshine : Lee Francis
The Mark : Shaka meets Horace Andy


....and on the non reggae side of things, some medieval monastic chant from Abbes Hildegaard of Bingen, and very nice it is too.

The Gladiators discomix "Don't fool the young girls" engendered a breakfast time soul shakedown party in the grumpy kitchen.

The monastic chanting sounds interesting. In certain moods I'm really up for gregorian etc chants. I love deep-voiced, lentissimo, choral chanting

I have some Russian basso profundo tunes which are quite extraordinary. They sing one octave below the normal bass range.

Tune of the day though is Kylie's "Give Me Just A Little More Time"!

:lol:

It's Soul-Jazz's "Studio One Disco Mix" album that's getting a bashing today - mind you, like others I've read about (either in here somewhere or over on the Trojan forum), I've had trouble getting this CD to play - seems OK on my main stereo, but won't play in the car and the copy I made (off CD to PC, then back onto CD-R) jumps about on some tracks, as does the mp3 files on my PC :( :( :evil:
If it don't turn you on, you oughtta leave it alone!!

It's a very bleak, cold and overcast evening where I am... How is it on the road to nowhere?

I'm kidding Digiman-- I love monastic chanting of all nations, Greek, Russian, Syrian....I use the term "mad" in a fun way, meaning good...sometimes we English use the words "mad and eccentric" meaning good things....I consider my self "mad and eccentric" ( and I try to like myself! ) and the art forms I love most are also, "mad and eccentric"

Hey Mario! "Rolling Thunder" - is good ya!

The road to nowhere today was very sunny and blue-skied - cold, but very nice

Les Extraordinaires Graves des Basses Russes Profondes

"Because they can sing an octave below the normal bass range, these basso profondos or 'oktavists' are unique to Russian singing. Often compared to the low notes of an organ, these voices have fascinated the great Russian composers whose secular and sacred works are featured here in rarely recorded or even previously unpublished versions."

sounds great Ras -- I like most of the releases on Harmonia Mundi --Good label. I have two cd's of Syrian/Lebanese hermit monastic chant from the 1st century AD ( or so I'm told ) on that label...it's pretty gloomy in places but seriously uplifitng at times!

Those desert hermits eh? I dunno....
