Bob Dylan ~ Slow Train Coming



For years I avoided Dylan's "sacred" phase.  But I've been listening to these three records and finding them actually pretty good.  Better, in fact than the ones surrounding them, i.e after Blood on the Tracks and up to Good As I Been to You.

You don't like Desire or Street Legal? Or, on the other side, Oh Mercy and Under The Red Sky?

Infidels and Knocked Out Loaded are admittedly mixed. Empire Burlesque is unlistenable in its studio overproduction version, but has fascinatingly different alternate versions of many of those songs. Down In The Groove may be "completeists only".

Desire and Street Legal are mediocre at best, IMO.  I never liked Oh Mercy, Daniel Lanois over produced the record, it is his record not Dylan's. And Under the Red Sky is also overproduced in the other direction, i.e. too slick and bland.  So I stand by my comment.

Ó Riada: Ó Riada sa Gaiety





Seán Ó Riada was a towering figure in the musical and cultural life of Ireland during his short lifetime. He was probably the one responsible for the reinvention of traditional music in my country and bringing it to a very much larger audience. He was also a composer of orchestral music drawing on his roots for inspiration. This CD is a live recording of a particularly renowned concert with his folk ensemble.

… music is not only an 'entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.    RVW, 1948

Having a listen to this on streaming. Got shivers on track 2 as i know and absolutely love Mná Na hÉireann. I know it via cover by Alan Stivell, a traditional Brittany musician and harp player that hit the big time in the late 70's and 80's in France, melting all types of celtic music. Is he known at all in Ireland ?

here is his version:

Planxty:





The term “Planxty” refers to a work named in tribute to a particular person by the Irish harper O’Carolan [1670-1738] e.g. Planxty Ó’Connor. Planxty, the band, was comprised of four musicians and took Irish traditional music, which was in the possession of severe purists, and liberated and invigorated it, instilled life into it and made it very relevant to a modern time. They had a huge impact on the folk scene not only in Ireland but also in many European countries probably especially Germany. I was at very many of their concerts and was constantly enthralled by their performances, virtuosity and interpretations.

I am delighted that you listened to some of that CD of mine above Olivier and indeed that you were aware of Mná Na hÉireann.

I, and many others, would certainly be certainly aware of Alan Stivell particularly from the original folk revival in the 70's and 80's. He would have visited Ireland and would also have collaborated with Irish musicians.

I had no grasp to what extent he was actually known in other Celtic countries, whether he was broadly known or just within a "niche" of celtic music followers...again, that niche is much broader, i assume, in Ireland than it is in France anyway... so maybe...both ?  :laugh:

anywaaaaays... good stuff  ;D
