Addicted To Vinyl Musical thoughts from the open road, with headphones on

Randomly: Wilco, Nirvana and Chickenfoot

Three albums out of quite a few which have been part of the percolating music mix in my world lately...and I just had to stop by and saw a few words.

First up - the Chickenfoot album...don't be confused by the 'Chickenfoot III' title - they're simply so advanced that they skipped ahead title-wise for their second album together, which continues the nice forward momentum that they established collectively with album #1.

I had the chance to spend 15 minutes talking to Michael Anthony (be still, my super-inner Van Halen geek!) about the 'Foot and you can read the results of our chat here.

Wilco. Album is called 'The Whole Love' and there's a whole lot to love about it, no matter what era of Wilco you're a fan of. There's some YHF kinda stuff, some 'Sky Blue Sky' type stuff....'Being There?' Maybe that's a stretch. Still, I found it to be a rather pleasant listen and it's already made more impact with me musically than the previous album did.

Related: Vinyl hounds reading this right now, you can surf over to Pop Market to get the new Wilco album plus 'A.M.' and 'Being There,' all on high quality vinyl at a special price for all three. Each album comes with a CD version of the album for on-the-go listening. You've got about 15 hours to pull the trigger!

Nirvana. Of course, you're probably aware that the super-hella-deluxe version of 'Nevermind' came out today in celebration of the album's 20th anniversary. With all of the songs that I've played/heard at various radio stations over the past 15 years, I'll admit that it's been quite a while since I've tracked through the entire album.

Today, I sat through all four CDs of the new 'Nevermind' set and my reaction: wow, that's a lot of Nirvana for anybody to sit through in one sitting...no matter how much of a fan you are! (But don't get me wrong, it's a very cool set.) I did see parts of the included concert film over the weekend on VH-1 and in my opinion, THAT might be worth the price of the set alone....for my money, I like the performance/feel better than the previously released 'Live at Reading' DVD.

Just some random musical thoughts....what are yours?

(Oh yeah, Pink Floyd 'Dark Side of the Moon' reissue = awesome. Need to get my hands on the ultra-deluxe set of that!)

    That the movie attempts to generate sympathy for Ferrell’s character while simultaneously deriving all of it
    is humor out of his a range of bathroom misadventures, a mix
    that left this viewer cold.
