    that's a great song but has anyone else noticed how we all hear the same songs for short periods of time?
    its like someone buys up a block of music oldies and every fucking station plays it on repeat
    been hearing this song on everything from spotify to the supermarket
    great live version and lmao at making it look like Linda actually played keyboards
    McCullough and Laine were the real musicians and you barely get a glimpse of them

    i never even knew this song was part of the David Live! album sessions
    apparently Visconti brought it back in the remaster of the album
    its an old Ohio Players song and i think he kills it but yeah i love the FB page i belong to...lots of people from his past including Visconti

    my grandmother bought this album for me when i went shopping with her
    i was around 10 iirc
    she spoke very little english so i had to point when she gestured for me to pick something out
    i didn’t think about it at the time, but my grandmama had to be pretty open minded to let me pick that out — a woman from japan, in her 70’s, with the wild 60’s having just concluded, buying (what had to appear to her as) an album cover with a thin gender bender dude preening
    she was an awesome woman, always kind and generous
    god bless you grandmama

    ever hear a song that sends you off in recollection of how great a band was?
    came on w the gf's kid in the car and she put it on her spotify in the first 60 seconds lol
    what an incredibly underrated and overlooked talent...of course NOT in the rrhof pffft
    guess they never played this live much

    great band
    and as great as their breakfast in america album was, imo it really did them a disservice
    i’ll definitely be in the minority, but (again imo) crime of the century is a far better album
    and there were songs on other older albums that were a lot less pop
    but when breakfast in america came out, it gave birth to a new sect of supertramp fans who knew nothing of their prior (and once again imo) better work
    very similar to when the wall by pink floyd was released, and when the bee gees went disco for saturday night fever
    just my .02 cents

    I’ve posted this before, but since huh? brought them up
    12 years ago, but still… for a 70’s band to sound this good four decades later…

    absolutely but imho gone hollywood is one of their best songs period
    breakfast has an important spot because i had just gotten out of bootcamp in SD and it was really good
    i had a gf introduce me to crisis, crime and quietest prior to that and those are the band at their best (maybe my favorite musical memories cause we were kids laying on the floor)
    blame that more on Hodgson and where he wanted to go w famous which frankly sucks and destroyed them
    btw goodbye stranger is also as good as anything they ever did imo and has maybe the best outro of all time
    and of course i wouldn't disagree there overall best work came prior to breakfast
    as the years go by their classic work holds up as well as any music and probably is comparable only to groups like Traffic for me in the sense of so many instruments

    yeah it’s probably more the newcomers jumping on the bandwagon that irked me most
    in fact, take out the probably
    breakfast in america and the wall both had some good songs
    the albums just weren’t imo as good as some of their previous releases
    but that didn’t matter to the neophyte lemmings that had no idea other great albums even existed
    […]
    startling revelation…
    turns out i was a grumpy old man when i was still (albeit, barely) a teen
    i’m actually kinda proud of that

    nah, its like saying Aerosmiths first four were their best or Mick Taylor Stones or early Yes vs. Trevor Rabin stuff, can we even listen to LZ in through the out door!?
    everyone it guilty of being protective of the bands they love and even though i was mentioning a couple of great songs on breakfast the overplayed hits didn't age well at all for me so i get what you're saying totally
    the Wall was incredible and I remember where i was when i first heard comfortably numb on the radio
    a few weeks later i had heard run like hell, thin ice, young lust, one of my turns and gilmores guitar soaring on nearly every song along w odd radio noise like between nobody home y vera
    ended up seeing that tour from the 13th row and the guy i went with told me this pill w a 714 and a beer would make it perfect...and he was right
    does it compare w dsotm or wywh?, no way but again 79 was a really great year for albums being released and i was 18 so maybe i remember it better
    but they just seemed to come at me one after another and looking at it the list IS pretty astounding
    not the greatest year for music but suddenly there was also all this new music w the Cure, Petty's torpedeos, Clash, Police Regata de Blanc!, AC/Dc highway to hell and Knack
    at the same time Aerosmith released night in the ruts, Eagles long run, LZ itttod, Bowie lodger, Wings egg, Mac tusk, Trick dream police ick ick and ick
    i'm sure all those albums have their legion fans, i know they do, but 79 also was the end of me listening to a lot of the bands i had loved...sort of like what you're saying
    even Bowie followed lodger w scary monsters and then...let's dance! wtf was he thinking? and i didn't really listen again until the 90s
    i guess ultimately things were really changing like they always are but sure beats the fuck out of most anything happening now w very few exceptions
    yes i'm old and a by 81 i would find myself dancing to ant music, realizing the value of a certain powder and trying to stick my dick in anything that rubbed up on me in a club
    but i digress, and crazy how you can look back at the releases and timeline things

    speaking of remembering where you were haha
    parents weren't home at a friends house so 5 of us were sitting around w a bong and some brews playing the records on that giant console w the great speakers
    we were kinda doing the Santana, Grateful dead, Allman bros. thing and someone put on Dark side
    is that my heartbeat? wtf is this? oh cool song, wait a sec what a trip CLOCK ALARMS! Fuck what was that! ok pass that bong...and the lighter, life changed

    31 shows on the tour, LA and NY
    thought they played Philly as well but it looks like i'm wrong
    i remember my buddy who i still see every week scored 2nd row from klos or kmet and i bought through a scalper for like $150 a piece which was a fortune back then
    had to by sell and steal to put that coin together and had virtually nothing else which led to dad kicking my ass out shortly after and i don't think i blamed him at the time
    the 13th row turned out to be the better seats because the show started w an airplane flying across the arena a crashing behind an already partially built wall
    by the time they hit intermission he was looking straight up and couldn't see what everyone else was seeing

    i remember meeting this girl in '77/78
    she was way out of my league, being 21 while i was a mere 17 or 18
    but i still somehow coerced her into going to see the cars at the (then fully outdoor) universal amphitheater
    anyway, this band comes out to open for the cars
    no one has any idea who they are
    the lead singer has so much energy, a great voice (especially for the times) and the entire band is killing it
    everyone keeps asking "who are these guys?"
    finally someone says "joe jackson"
    the next morning i went out and bought that album
    till this day still one of my favorites
