    “Can anyone attest to pros/cons of the Bowl?”

    Don’t want to speak for Lumpy but:

    Pro: They are very cool about strapping you down and not arresting you when you are going FBR.

    Con: Easy place to go FBR when the band is killing a great Hood.

    Lil Um

    blow + home studio + Ike + ARP synth + Tina + Gospel music = $$$$$

    The Gospel According to Ike and Tina

    if ya don’t know this one. a FAV album of mine. epic sound and vibes.

  4. roberto luongo Says:

    the Bowl sounds like absolute ass unless you’re up front.

    it looked good half way back and Kuroda was crushing but I like my music loud and couldn’t hear shit.

    plus not being a LA local I found even going hear that city to be a pain in my ass. would never go back.

  6. MiA Says:

    That Culture Two Sevens Clash album is great too. I know AW likes it.

  7. roberto luongo Says:

  8. MiA Says:

    This does kinda look awesome. Need RL to give the “authenticity” meter on it.

    another absolute masterpiece of a roots album from the late 70’s

  14. bob dylan Says:

    never heard two sevens clash? load up a tube and get to work. thats been my go-to reggae album since hearing it for the first time.

  15. bob dylan Says:

    take that back. pablo moses – revolutionary dream (which i got from AW at the same time) has been my go-to. two sevens clash is right there with it obv.

  16. IrieWalton Says:

    Go to regga album is “Spear Burning” by Burning Spear. From the album’s artwork to the roots/dub sickness that’s my go-to. But all these other recs are definitely up there, as well.

    Just don’t forget crazy Scratch’s “The Return of Pipecock Jackxon” either.

  17. little umbrellas Says:
    Isreal Vibration- The Same Song

    Also totally new to me. >this place is the best.

    Alive>Two Sevens>The Gospel According To>The Same Song> Revolutionary Dream – a great playlist to start the day.
    Pablo Moses Revolutionary Dream (side A vinyl)

  18. roberto luongo Says:

    immediately spin both. been on HEAVY rotation at the crib lately. such classics.

    Scientist FTW

    Hollywood Bowl is also a good spot if you’re in the mood for a public hand job frm a stranger.

    Decided last night to try and break the latest Phish/Dead only phase I’ve been in the past month or so. Not going to rule out a few more Island Tour spins the next couple of days though.

    Last night was Cookin’ with the Miles Davis Quintet and Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto #3 in D minor. This morning was Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto #1, followed by the first couple tracks on The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society.

    Two Sevens Clash sounds like a good one for later though…

  20. little umbrellas Says:

    Irie dubs, saved those two as well.

    Any other coveted Soul, Funk, Jazz all timers welcome. you can assume I know nothing. who knows what else I could be missing…


    Jesus, video games are really crazy now.

  21. roberto luongo Says:

    you know this McGlaughlin man? beastly playing.

  22. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Dig your foray into classical gcc. Very refined young man you are.

  23. garretcorncob Says:

    Lil Umb:

    Max Romeo: War Ina Babylon

    John Coltrane and Duke Ellington

    John Coltrane, Kenny Burrell, Tommy Flanagan, Idries Sulieman: The Cats

  24. little umbrellas Says:

    def, but haven’t listened in many years. good idea. Found that one around the same time as Tony Williams ‘Emergency’.

    Would love to have a BB Recs by genre website.

  25. garretcorncob Says:

    Classical is how I remind myself that I’m better than most people, JG.

    Nah, but seriously, I just love the complexity you can get with that many musicians channeling one person’s creative vision. And the sound textures are lush as fuck, which I dig.
