That part where the horns explode (the baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaweeaaaaaah [bow bow bow] part is among my favorite few seconds in all of music, but I can't really stand any of the rest of the dude's music.

Total classic, as is much of that album ("Lido Shuffle," "What Can I Say," "It's Over," "We're All Alone"). Bass pops by David Hungate! Jeff Porcaro on drums! Awesome.

Sorry - not "It's Over" (though it's OK). I meant "Georgia."

This is a great track, but Ben Sidran scaled better heights.

stormy, do you have any Sidran? my buddy's been telling me to pick up his album "Feel Your Groove" forever. he says it's that folky soul shit that i love, but i've never found it.

JAXON (jaxon), Thursday, 8 September 2005 04:25 (fourteen years ago) link

Didn't Sidran do "On the Cool Side"? That's one of the greatest crimes against music anywhere.

"Lowdown" however, like the entirety of "Silk Degrees," is completely awesome.

Yeah, his two Blue Thumb lps! but only on LP though. If I ever work out how to digitize (um, been meaning to do this for like two years; oh well, weekend comes and me wanna get annihilated) I would put them up on noize ysi or something.

I mean, they aren't brilliant or anything, but there are definitely some reet blunted-out grooves on those things that you wouldn't necessarily associate with the name. *Especially* the great lenghty "Now I Live (and Now my Life is Done)" -- that's a tour de force. some crazy mug sampled it too, I think; I can't remember who. It's on Putting in time on the Planet Earth...

Puttin' in time on Planet Earth: (Blue Thumb 1973)
* "Walking with the Blues"
Atmosphere - "It Goes"

Man, what the fuck is up w/gemm.com pricing? do people really not want to sell their records? 90$?! fuck that. (although there is a cheaper one, i'm not buying records right now)

Maybe this is well known, but I had no idea:

According to the DVD commentary for Saturday Night Fever, the producers intended to use the song "Lowdown" by Boz Scaggs in the rehearsal scene between Tony and Stephanie in the dance studio, and choreographed their dance moves to the song. [...] As John Travolta asserted, "The Bee Gees weren't even involved in the movie in the beginning ... I was dancing to Stevie Wonder and Boz Scaggs."

boz isn't selling his guitar playing very well there

mookieproof, Friday, 22 May 2020 19:54 (two months ago) link

I wonder if Joanna levesque or Joel Hailey knows that song? Jonathan Richman most likely would not care for it…
