Playlist, Week of 2017-09-03

Digging the new Deerhoof, but it's not hitting me like Breakup Song or La Isla Bonita did... give it time... I'm really enjoying the disc of Steely Dan demos... they've been around forever but I'd never heard them... it's fun to imagine what the unreleased songs would have sounded like with the full Dan treatment... my favorite unreleased Steely Dan song is "The Second Arrangement," a Gaucho outtake, later than these demos... [written earlier in the week before hearing of Walter Becker's death... R.I.P.]... It's good to drench myself in the hot molten lead of Slobber Pup, the Spanish Donkey, and the Weasel Walter Quartet... thanks, Albert Ayler, for pointing the way... Like all the King Crimson 40th Anniversary Editions, Islands is packed with tons of enlightening extras... a model for deluxe editions of single albums... the Steven Wilson remix is rewarding in its clarity and vision... Pepper Adams Plays Charlie Mingus is a hidden gem of the early '60s... it's an all-Mingus compositions album, and Pepper Adams swings mightily, with the sanctioned and sanctified help of Danny Richmond on drums... great, too, to hear Paul Chambers play Mingus bass lines...
