Worked from home today for part of the day (had to take some time off to take dad to another dr. appointment) so I had the chance to pull out some more vinyl.  First out:

 

Dio - Volkshaus Nov. 27, 1983

 

This is a Dio boot.  One record so its clearly not the entire sho but its still enjoyable.  Set list consists of:

 

Intro to Stargazer

Heaven & Hell (inc. a long guitar solo by Vivian Campbell)

Rainbow in the Dark

Man on the Silver Mountain

Evil Eyes

Don't Talk to Strangers

 

Good stuff.  Next out of the box:

 

The Who - Dr Jimmy

 

This is a Who boot recorded at a show in Toronto on 12/17/82.  Its not the entire show - I actually think I have the entire show on something they officially released.  But a Who boot of the same show will still be fine to listen to.  Hard to get to much live Who.  The set list consists of:

 

Dr. Jimmy

Boris the Spider

Drowned

Cry if You Want

Who Are You

Pinball Wizard

See Me, Feel Me

Love Ain't For Keeping

5:15

 

Good stuff.  Last out of the box:

 

The Who - Long Live Rock

 

Another Who boot from the same show Dr. Jimmy was recorded at.  The set list consists of:

 

Love Reign Over Me

Long Live Rock

Won't Get Fooled Again

Naked Eye 

Squeeze Box

Young Man Blude

Twist & Shout

 

Again, good stuff

Joni Mitchell- Court & Spark (10/10)

 

I go back and forth Between this and Hejira as my fav.  This album is fantastic.  I just just LOVE how Joni weaves her lyrics.  I can see every scene she's describing in my head as she sings.

 

Something i think Taylor Swift THINKS she does but not really.  She actually used to do the painting pictures with words better as a younger 20 something.

 

Also Fleet Foxes must listen to a lot of Joni cause CLEARLY to me they get their layered harmonies from her.  they're near identical.

Once More Round The Sun was, for me, a really great album. I still find The Hunter quite dull but I love that album.

Great album and on top of that, it brings back great memories of my college days.

 

 

Favorite song off this album.

Ran a few errands today so that gave me a chance to stop in the best local record store (which doubles as a comic book store as well).  While looking through their stock in the hopes I found something I would like (once in a while that happens) I got really luck and found something that I never expected to get .  Finishing listing to it now.  It is:

 

Gloryhammer - Return to the Kingdom fo Fife

 

I liked their first 2 albums when I listened to them on Youtube.  Then they fired their original lead singer (big mistake IMO) and brought in a new singer.  I had never listen to this album (their 3rd).  Figured I would never see it again if I did not grab it so gave it a shot.  I really enjoyed it.  Great?  Please.  Not close.  But cheesy fun.  Liked everything on it.  The record also came with a 2nd LP which is an orchestral version of the 1st record.  This is ok and has its moments but could do without it.  Still, glad I got it.  Just wish they had not changed singers although the new one is good - just not as good as the original.
