Okay, it’s time for Episode 13 of Love That Album: The Compilation Series.

Eric has gone for a triple threat this time around, looking at 3 albums covering the Seattle grunge scene. First of all he discusses Deep Six (1986). This album came before the Sub Pop label and the Seattle scene was the Seattle scene. It’s seen by some to be a very important album from the knowledge of what was to come later featuring early Soundgarden and Melvins amongst others.

Secondly, he discusses Another Damned Seattle Compilation (1991) featuring bands from the seattle scene paying tribute to Eric’s beloved The Damned. Bands are as diverse as Mudhoney and The Posies.

Finally, he talks about the soundtrack to a film about the Seattle scene called Hype (1996) including tracks from Nirvana, Mudhoney, Green River and the great Mark Lanegan.

Listen to Eric’s perspective. Dig some tunes and get educated.

Welcome back to Love That Album podcast.

 

For episode 65, I am really happy to welcome Scott Clickers to the music discussion table. Scott and his wife Kat host an excellent film podcast called Married Witch Clickers. Their films are diverse and the show always makes for fascinating and enjoyable listening.

 

Scott and I do a dissection on Neil Young's 1989 album Freedom. Neil had spent most of the eighties recording albums for Geffen Records that many fans found unsatisfactory or avoided all together. Geffen attempted to sue Neil for making "untypical" Neil Young albums. On"Freedom", Neil's second album after returning to Reprise, he puts paid to the ridiculous notion that there is such a thing as a "typical" Neil Young album. Diversity and songwriting are its strengths. Neil gives us the feedback laden rock and gorgeous acoustic numbers. I make the case that this is a concept album. Why? Tune in and find out.

Eric Reanimator continues to show his love for Drivin’ and Cryin’ by bringing them back to his Album I Love segment with a discussion on their 1988 album Whisper tames The Lion.
