Playlist, Week of 2016-06-12
1979 it was, and I was there, and I recorded it on my old condenser-microphone hand-held Sony. The cassettes have been sitting in my card catalog cabinet for years, but I hadn't gotten around to burning it yet (kinda got sidetracked with all the old Tad Thaddock and UYA tapes, but that's another story). Then an old friend, Clay, asked me if I still had my cassette--his had been stolen from his car. So I was happy to dig it out and digitize it for him, and I'm so glad I did. The sound was pretty damn good, and the performance was outstanding. Pip Pyle's one of my favorite drummers: jazz chops with a rock sensibility, and the ability to navigate extremely tricky time signatures and complex arrangements with ease, dexterity, and fun, making it all sound easy. Trying to play along with old Hatfield and National Health records has proven to me that it's not! He was brilliant, really one-of-a-kind.
