How do conclude what is and is not eclectic?
I just put my phone on shuffle while in the car or out pedaling around. I should probably take up walking on the days I dont feel like riding. There's all kinds of stuff in there
Right now i'm on Mondo Cozmo - Plastic Soul. First listen.
Past 24-ish hours
- Holst - The Planets - Montreal Symphony.
- Bob Seger - Ultimate Hits (Best of, not a regular album)
- Allman Brothers - Trouble No More (Part)
- Elgar - Enigma Variations, London Symphony. Read an article about it so looked it up.
- Tom Petty - Wildflowers
I've always held the position that most anyone could find both something they love and something they hate in my music collection
Not odd, but a great mix with different kinds of music
John Coltrane - Coltranes Sound
Marduk - Plague Angel
Miles Davis Nefertiti
Keith Urban - Get Closer
FM 84 - Atlas
Rotten Sound - Murderworks
Bartoks String quartets
Nick Drake Pink Moon
Stenson/LIebman/Danielsson/Christensen -Far North
I always enjoy jams by Widespread Panic for working.
I've always thought of it as being singularly focused. Perhaps I should have added some Ozzie. I did just finish Tony Bennett Duets II and Luther Vandross Power of Love.
TUTM Definition: Strictly Show tunes is not Eclectic, adding show tunes to the mix is.
That's just the way I listen to music. Can't stay with any one genre for more than one album or so. My old reel-to-reel had what some considered to be totally strange mixes.
What modern blues are you listening to?
If there is no electricity it is not electric....
When I refer to modern blues it means Robben Ford, Ronnie Earl, Duke Robillard, SRV, Tab Benoit, Robert Cray, Clapton, John Mayall, Peter Green, etc.
I don’t do Bonamassa and I couldn’t tell you of any new blues phenoms
First we find an eclectition and then ask him/her.
I used to grab 3-4 cds at random when heading out n for the day. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn’t. I did this for many years
Mixing or combining genres that you wouldnt normally expect to go together or be appreciated by the same individual?
I've always been a "ck out the b-sides" and "dig through the back of the rack" kind of music fan, and have found that to put me in the minority.
Most people seem content to listen to whatever is fed to them.
Nice breadth of taste, y’all. I’ve always found that musicians or people who love sound can find something to like in almost any genre. I tend to admire/study the musician rather than the genre they’re in, and I also go in phases. Right now I’m in a traditional Country phase, but something could suddenly derail me back into a Death Metal binge, or Zappa, or Bowie, or Kate Bush or Mingus or whatever. Shostakovich. Listening to Zeppelin for the millionth time and discovering something new about it. It feels like I’m studying the artist or genre as opposed to just listening, even though I’m thoroughly enjoying it. With the access we have now there is SO MUCH to try to absorb, it’s mind boggling, right? But I never get bored. Happy listening, everyone!
I liked to check out “b” sides back when singles were part of our world
One persons eclectic is another’s yawn
Eclectic is a word used by people who think they have better taste than you do and think you don't know what the word means.
off the top of my head - featuring some 'under-appreciated' guitarist
"Bare Trees" - Flettwood Mac (Danny Kirwin, Bob Welch)
"Stand Up" - Jethro Tull (Martin Barre)
"Red Octopus" Jefferson Starship (Craig Chaquico)
I like all those guys, but I hate to tell you - none of them are modern at this point. They're definitely all vintage.
