Hi, yes, it's me again. Should I address the fact I haven't done a broadcast in a long, long, long time? Let's see if I can pick up where I left off. One open item: I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE the archive project that has been started by Horace Moore and the band (and Chris Rabold). This is a worthy project and one that every one of you should be helping support by purchasing the releases. September 8, 1997 is an amazing show and should will be one of the greatest Spreadhead stocking stuffers in recent memory. The archive project is depending on us, the fans, for it's success. By supporting the project through your purchase of an archive recording you are ensuring that MORE MORE MORE archives are released in the future. And who knows, perhaps the next release will be the one you've been wishing for! Now let's get down to business During the time you last heard from me I was bitten by a musical bug - the vinyl bug. Last October I found a working turntable and about 20 albums. Today I've got 4 working turntables and a whole bunch of vinyl.... As I was flipping through stacks of worn sleeves in the bins of Albums on the Hill and Twist and Shout I found myself meditating on how vinyl was heavily influential on generations of musicians. Rediscovering how the long format of an LP made each side of an album an event. Ruminating on how the ultimate expression of a musical artist's mastery (or indulgence) was the 'concept album.' The experience of listening to a vinyl album requires an immersion in the experience: Interpreting album art, removing the disc from the sleeve, placing it on the spindle, gently resting the needle down, hear the familiar crackle of dust and vinyl, the anticipation of the fist sounds of the first song.... Take a moment to think about the last time you pressed a single button to listen to your music. Widespread is well known for their covers versions of songs... Songs that the band members would have experienced for the first time on vinyl. SO why not a "Panic Covers and Influences" podcast taken directly from the vinyl sources?!? Without further ado I present to you various covers and influences recorded directly from albums in my collection... Savor Jingo Santana from the album "Santana" Are You Ready for the Country? Neil Young from the album "Journey Through the Past (soundtrack)" Superstition Stevie Wonder from the album "Talking Book" Starship Trooper 1. Life Seeker 2. Disillusion 3.
