Playlist, Week of 2017-08-20

In the 1975 Henry Cow show with Robert Wyatt at the New London Theatre, Wyatt is not just a guest; he is fully integrated with the band... part of this show was excerpted on the LP Concerts, but it's especially nice to hear Wyatt performing on Cow classics like "Beautiful as the moon; Terrible as an Army with Banners" and "Living in the Heart of the Beast"... the whole show is quite extraordinary, actually... The new Guided By Voices album sounds to my untutored ears like some of the most cohesive stuff Robert Pollard has put out in recent years... some great gems here... love the crossfading and quick transitions too... I hadn't forgotten about it, but it'd been a while, so it was nice to return to Antony Braxton's Echo Echo Mirror House Music... deep and nourishing... the unedited odyssey of Big Star's third album as documented in Complete Third shows that things weren't necessarily as incoherent or chaotic as legend sometimes has it... the early demos perhaps capture its spirit best...
