Out To Lunch Friday Playlist
Last week's Led Zeppelin reunion hoo-ha ended with the happy result of me hearing the original Jake Holmes' version of Dazed And Confused for the first time. Certainly a historically interesting sonic nugget.
The recent release of this live performance of Metal Machine Music by Lou Reed, transcribed for a mostly acoustic ensemble by German musician Ulrich Krieger, has also aroused my ears. I guess you'd need the DVD to really appreciate how all this feedback is being recreated by piano, saxophone, accordion, violin, cello, contrabass, trumpet, tuba, and Lou Reed on guitar, but the audio alone provides plenty to ruminate on. If I frequently ease into Monday morning with a little Ambient 1: Music for Airports, Metal Machine Music provides the perfect Friday afternoon complement.
In related news, what are the chances of getting Mr. Reed's recent Hudson River Wind Meditations into Rhapsody so we can give it a proper what for?
