Playlist, Week of 2017-07-09

In addition to that other big re-release celebrating 1967, we now have 1967: Sunshine Tomorrow, featuring a gorgeous new true-stereo mix of the Beach  Boys' classic Wild Honey... the album sounds better than ever... while still maintaining its air of rediscovered simplicity, the new mix gives the album a beautiful sense of detailed clarity, a breath of country air, a sweeter thing or two... absolutely gorgeous... also included are tons of alternate takes, session tracks, and unreleased live and live-in-the-studio gems from the Smiley Smile and Wild Honey era... it's great to finally have "A Little Help from My Friends," as well as the full version of "I Was Made to Love Her" (with the coda at the end), on CD (both of these were previously only available on the LP "Rarities") (itself pretty rare).... The newly discovered tapes of Thelonious Monk's soundtrack sessions for Les Liaisons Dangereuses 1960 are primo... Also continuing my on and off explorations of Bud Powell, whose playing continues to fascinate me... As do the Beatles... Revolver and Sgt. Pepper: gaddam....
