Hey folks, welcome to episode 51 of Love That Album. I’m going for a slight variation in format (though I think at times we fell back on the old). For some future shows, we will pick 2 albums and discuss in a more broad fashion, rather than going song by song. Less time spent per album, but hopefully, the heart of what makes the albums so good (or so shitty if that’s the case) will still be covered.

I am joined by JuanJose DeLa Cruz of the wonderful List Music Podcast (happy birthday Juan) and first timer to LTA, David Blom. Each of these fellow music fans has suggested an album for discussion. Juan picked King Crimson’s “In The Court of the Crimson King” and Dave selected The Flaming Lips’ “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots”. Both albums have a prog flavour so I thought it was a good pairing. As well as the music, the discussion turns to war, illness, death, old computer games, Benny Hill….the usual stuff discussed on LTA. I hope you enjoy.

For his Album I Love segment, Eric Reanimator discusses Monster Magnet and their album “All Dopes To Infinity”. Hear a little Stooges in there? Good. Hold that thought……

If you’ve been enjoying the show, please pass the word that the show exists to your music loving friends, write an iTunes review, make me some chocolate muffins….any kindness will be gratefully appreciated.

Love That Album is baaaaaaaaaaccccckkkkk. Did you miss us??????

Not only that, but the podcast turns 50 episodes old.

It took a while, but with (most) technical difficulties overcome, I can now happily lay episode 50 of Love That Album on you – 6 weeks or so after it was originally due. I dub the episode “Beneath The Planet of Shooting The Shit”.

To celebrate this milestone in the show, I invited the members of the Shooting The Shit Crew- Tim Merrill, Eric Peterson, John Stirrat, and Michael Pursche to join in a discussion on our favourite box sets. Are box sets a dying breed? What was their purpose in the first place – to create interest for the novice or give unknown treasures for the long time fan? What makes for a great box set? The big one: what are the greatest box sets released? These life enriching questions are all discussed on the program. It was a fascinating discussion, and I thank these fine people for giving of their time and expertise. A special thanks should be given to Geoff Smith who was available for the show, but Skype gave us difficulties in letting Geoff onto the conversation, Rest assured, he will be back on the program soon.

Fittingly, to accompany the discussion of garage, blues, punk, Americana, pop and jazz, music for the show is provided courtesy of Scriabin, Beethoven and Chopin.

At this mini milestone for the show, my thanks go to anyone who has ever guested on the show, provided feedback and encouragement, or just listened to the damn thing. I love doing this podcast and am gratified that a bunch of you out there enjoy listening. Here’s to the next 50 shows.
