Vinyl Spiral
on: January 29, 2019, 20:54:25
I had a flashback to the music that got me through my teens... life centred around surviving school and getting home to stack the spindle and crank the volume as loud as my mum and suburban Britain permitted.
If you don`t get at least half the song references here... well, where were you in 1969?
After decades in folk  I`ve discovered I enjoy having a go at singing rock... pointers from those with more rasp and attitude than I are most welcome.
Buddy Scott on the guitars.

       Vinyl Spiral

staring out at the wind sock sentry
no flights leaving the golden rule
blackbirds circle a smokestack jungle
keep your head down at home at school
that`s the golden rule

between the cross and the revolutions
needle drops into the groove
roll up from the Book of Revelation
wind begins to howl splits you in two
needle drops into the groove

vinyl spiral
the rabbit hole in your room
Wooden Ships high above you
the Maiden of the Cancer Moon

painting life out from the corner
turning your beautiful mind
for every pill makes you smaller
electric dreams If Six Were Nine
turning your beautiful mind

vinyl spiral
the rabbit hole in your room
Cinnamon Girl high above you
Dark Side of the Moon

vinyl spiral
the rabbit hole in your room
Dark Star in the Strange Brew
Within You Without You

This is very good, it has that magic that I like, that magic that lives inside Pop-Rock and that is like a food for the mind
I congratulate you  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::

Very cool tune!!! I love how it moves. Good groove and excellent instrumentation......I really liked that wah guitar break. Kudos to Buddy for all the guitar work. You had some fun with this one I think.  :)

I can't offer much advice on rock vocals but to my sensibilities you got it right for this song.

I got most of the excellent song references but then I was just graduating from high school in 1969.

Neil Innes, of the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, Rutles, Grimms (to name a few), did the
Recycled vinyl blues . A blues in which warped pieces of older songs were involved. Looking at whatís happening today, itís wonder he got away with that.

There also was Rodney Slater (saxophone). The first person I ever saw playing an instrument to the backing of robots. Letís guess: 45 years ago?

The king of the Bonzoís was the late Vivian Stainshall. Iíve got a transcript of every word the guy said in front of a microphone. Really do.
Think of some 400 to 500 A4 pages.

The yardstick for anything combining humor with music. And they learned the music along the way. What an adventure. they featured in the Beatles movie where they did Death Cab for Cutie.

Ahhhhhh., donít get me started.

In spite of these guys being my heroes, I wasnít really convinced that recycled Vinyl was the beginning and end of this thing. The idea was good, but the way it was delivered???

And if I listen close, you include a better idea of what the music scene was about.
Never liked Wooden ships though. Goes for a lot of hippyish music too. But hey, thatís a matter of taste. Of lack of taste.
That you out class (English???) my heroes? If this isnít a compliment, I donít know what is.....
Very nicely worked out.
One hat off, since I only have one.
Kind regards, Gus

Yes, you have said it, it is really a flashback of many things and sensations.
I really liked the sound, the style. A good melody of the guitars and as for the lyrics, what can I say, they are ... a cover of an LP full of scenes that are diluted gently by the smoke ...
I did not know that to live I had to die so many times

@Marcus Nalgaber  I appreciate your kind words.
@Leonard Scaper  Scott`s been adding his guitar magic to about half my songs over the past two years.Luckily we seem to connect on our musical roots... and preference  for a rapid work flow ( I`m not very patient with online collaborations that take months!).
Glad you thought I approximated a rock singer 8)
@LePlongeur  Your one hat is good enough . Now mentioning Viv Stanshall is going to lead me YouTubing the Bonzos right away - you`re so right, he was the best & funniest around.
I had a feeling you wouldn`t be entirely pleased with my hippie song references :yes:  Thanks for getting past that and finding some good in the song!
@Mora Amaro La Loba Nicely expressed! Thank you for listening and saying that.

Robert

I get the feeling that our friend @LePlongeur , in spite of his massive life experience on the music scene, has become a bit of a musical curmudgeon in his later years. I use that word loosely and in jest, of course. :) :) :)

I had another listen to this song in the studio late night....good mix.

Friends tell me the truth in the gentlest way possible.
So I take your remark as a hint not to go full throttle when posting a reaction on certain happenings here in the Kitchen.
Low frequency words in a foreign language are a mystery to me, @Leonard Scaper , but as long as you say them, Iím OK.
You donít have to post smilies to soften the blow; no need for them at all.
Really not.
Kind regards, Gus

Gus @LePlongeur ....PLEASE always go full throttle. Always. We absolutely need everything you can give us.

Seriously.

Now back to our regularly scheduled thread on @robertkc 's great new tune.
