I was thinking about this subject somewhat the other day

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i7Lgy6AMb10&feature=fvw

this song comes out of left field compared to the fast agressive styles the band was known for already. If you can make it to the end check out the solo... the tone and feel are petty kewl.

Laterz

oh yeah.... what are other tunes by other bands ?

Good topic. Was thinking about this very thing when I first heard the Crowes album they recorded at Levonís barn. There is a song called I Ainít Hiding. The first time I heard it, I thought, what the F is this? They made a dance club song? Then it grew on me and it seems to be a comment on the whole party scene. The lyrics are great, and the song actually rocks.


Rust on my pickups
And blood on the stage
Seeds in the ashtray
And coke on the blade
Nyc delivers thats a guarantee
The only thing that keep the day from me

Line at the bathroom
Line at the bar
Take it outside and do the rest in the car
Our candy baby's in a bright light fright
Rock and roll rat race everybodys up tight
Thats right

Chorus:
Aint your saint aint your enemy
Im a long shadow on the highway
I know this aint how it's supposed to be
Baby i aint hiding

Stayed on the dance floor cause you can't find the door
Can't run out cause there is always more
Keep on rocking cause it's not even four
Turn up the bass until your ears get sore

"Solitude" by Black Sabbath, which appeared on the "Master of Reality" LP. A nice psychedelic ballad in the middle of riff heavy rockers.

In your opinion, what makes it different than what G n R is/was known for already ?
To me, "heaven's door" could've fit on the studio part of G n' R Lies and not missed a beat.

Patience blew my mind when I first heard it. Totally different from anything on Appetite or Illusion.

"What's Up" by 4 Non-Blondes sounds nothing like any of their other music.
"I'd Love to Change th World" by Ten Years After sounds nothing like any of their other songs.
"Ramblin Man" by the Allman Brothers Band does not really sound like their signature sound.

Listen to "Here She Comes" by The Beach Boys on their album CARL & THE PASSIONS-SO TOUGH. This always throws people off... of course if you follow their career, it does fit with the music they were making at that time, but if you just compare to what's known on the radio, it's not an easy guess.

"Straight From the Heart" by The Allman Brothers Band. LOL! True though.

Put on the Pink Floyd "Relics" compilation album for someone who only knows the Dark Side of the Moon --> forward Floyd and watch their face when you tell them who it is...

i'm no expert on G & R,but that was done as a reflective,soulful,softer edged tune covered by The Band,EC,Garcia,etc...all did it differently,but not in the genre of music that i might have typically associated with G & R up to that point in their history...again,i could be wrong....

also the style in which they did it seemed to fit them moreso than other versions,particularly the original...always loved that movie--Pat Garrett--still rent it regularly....

Looking Out For #1, by Bachman Turner Overdrive. First time I heard this jazzy little number had no idea it as BTO. Great song.

Nothing wrong about your own opinion, I was merely curious that is all and thanks for the insight on why you think that way about the tune.

This is basically an obscure b-side with a long history on the shelf. The song originally came from the Sgt. Pepper sessions in 1967. It was John Lennon's inspiration after reading a quote from the cover of a telephone directory. The song basically didn't go anywhere so he decided to make a joke out of it. Brian Jones stopped by the studio with a saxophone and added some notes. But then it was abandoned until 1969 when more overdubs were added. It was then used as the flip side to "Let It Be" in 1970.


There are several versions of this. The single version is in mono while the one on the anthology is in stereo. Each version has different mixes.

I have one with the ABB.

I remember listening to Eat a Peach for the 1st time. I was new to the ABB then and that is the album that turned me into such a big fan. The rest is history, of course. Here I am 3 decades later.

Anyway, I was just BLOWN AWAY completely by Little Martha!

I mean, all of this unreal jamming and improvisational genius on display, and then...

*Little Martha*

I thought to myself...This band is very very special

"Planet Caravan" has always been a favorite, most people would never know it is a 1st generation Sabbath tune.

I really like the BS picture, look at Neil's face, you can almost see him walking away from the band at that point, classic.
