It's 2018....a new year, but Love That Album podcast is still here to party like it's 2011 when it got started.

For episode 108, Maurice is presenting a solo show to talk about a pair of tribute albums.

Tribute albums can be a fairly dodgy excuse to get a variety of performers to do a cover of the artist in question. These albums can lack cohesion and just be a collection of songs rather than a solid work in its own right. Often, some of the actual covers lack any real inspiration.

Maurice presents two albums he feels stand apart from the tribute pack. The first is Till The Night Is Gone: A Tribute to Doc Pomus and Beat The Retreat: Songs By Richard Thompson. Tune in to hear why these albums work so well. The songs presented by a wealth of great songwriting contemporaries combine adventurous arrangements some distance from the familiar versions, along with " comfort food" arrangements.

Eric Reanimator chimes in for his Album I Love segment with a couple of tribute albums. He talks about Never Say Dinosaur, a tribute to Petra and More Oar: A Tribute to Skip Spence.

So let us pay tribute to these tribute albums, and hopefully you'll pay tribute to the podcast by giving it a listen.

Welcome to 2018 and to episode 46 of Love That Album: The Compilation Edition.

 

This month, Eric talks about compilations from rock and country artist Freddy Fender along with 50s guitar slingers Duane Eddy and Link Wray. All three men left their mark on rock with their sounds and their songs. So take a listen and travel back to a time when the sounds were different, simpler, yet still had the magic spark of Rock!

The year is almost done. The world is more insane than ever.

 

I won't pretend that Tim Merrill, Eric Peterson or myself can make sense of it.....but we CAN tell you about the music we heard for the first time in 2017 that made things bearable. If music doesn't cure all, it comes damn close....for us anyway. We each nominate 5 albums we heard this year that reminded us about the greatness that humanity can achieve when people are not trying to screw each other over. We'll tell you our picks and why they're worthy of you seeking them out for your own collections.

 

My thanks to my two wonderful friends Tim and Eric for sharing their timeand knowledge. I also thank anyone who contributed to an LTA in 2017 or anyone who took the time out to listen or recommend the show to others. You're all wonderful.

 

We're not singing Kum-Ba-Ya.....all we are saying....is give Love That Album episode 107 a chance.

What happens when a music broadcaster, an author, a record store owner and a journalist all walk into a podcast? (Yeah, I know it would sound better if it were a bar…..)

You get Love That Album podcast episode 106.

I am joined by four fine gentlemen with diverse knowledge, taste and appreciation for great music and want to recommend what rocked their world this year. They are Billy Pinnell (ex Triple M album show), Ian Macfarlane (author of The Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop), Pat Monaghan (proprietor of Rocksteady Records) and Jeff Jenkins (music journalist and author). I spoke with each of them separately and have them tell me the favourite albums they heard for the first time this year.

I am honoured that these fellow music fanatics, who have all had a hand in shaping what I’ve listened to over the years, graced my little podcast with their time and thoughts. A huge thanks to them all.

Looking ahead to episode 107 (out in the week following Christmas), I will be joined by my great friend and See Hear podcast co-host Tim Merill, as well as LTA: The Compilation Edition host, Eric Reanimator to discuss our favourite first-time listens of 2017. We’d LOVE to read out and discuss your favourite music of the year. Send written feedback or recorded mp3 to rrrkitchen@yahoo.com.au

Welcome to episode 105 of Love That Album podcast.

 

It’s been a while since we’ve had a double header on the podcast, but this time around we’re doing just that. My very special guest is the charismatic and semi-regular co-host of the All Time Top Ten podcast, David Daskal. He pointed out that since it had been a while from him previously joining me on LTA, we needed to talk about TWO albums to make up for that time.

 

We start off with a conversation about the 1994 album from indie rock band The Grays, “Ro Sham Bo”. The band included two ex-members of Jellyfish, Jason Falkner and Jon Brion. With such a pedigree in melodicism, why was this album not huge? We try to make sense of it.

 

Then Dave and I put on our leisure suits and strut our collective stuff to the 1976 debut album “Too Hot To Handle” by the band Heatwave. Their songwriter Rod Temperton went on to write songs for one of the biggest selling records in pop history. Is “Too Hot to Handle” actually that? Not only do we give our thoughts, but the gentlemanly Will Smith of the Gentleman’s Guide to Midnite Cinema podcast contributes his thoughts about Heatwave. DIG IT!!!!!

 

How the hell was Eric Reanimator going to find common ground between Heatwave and The Grays for his Album I Love segment? By talking about Men Without Hats, of course….so obvious.

 

Huge thanks to the wonderful Dave, Will and Eric for being so giving of their time.

When a 90s Power Pop revivalist and an 80s Pop Queen.. who really is a garage rocker at heart... team up for 3 albums of covers  featuring songs from the 1960s (Vol 1), the 1970s (Vol 2) and the 1980s (Vol 3) you get a interesting road map to the music of a generation.....

 
Eric wasn't expecting to go that way with this episode (but Maurice is happy he did).... but let's do it. This great collection goes both with some obvious favourites and some less investigated gems, showing that Hoffs and Sweet have a true love for the broad umbrella of the history of rock and pop.  Ming Tea is Groovyyyyyyyyy.....

Welcome to episode 104 of Love That Album podcast.

I am joined once again by hard working musician and pop lover, Rhys Lett. He’d spent most of the night playing a gig and STILL found energy on a Sunday morning to talk about the music of Emitt Rhodes – that’s dedication.

Since I’m a fan of great songwriters, people have expressed surprise that it took me until about a year ago or so to discover Rhodes’ music. LA based musician and producer Chris Price was discussing his involvement producing Rhodes’ 2016 comeback album “Rainbow Ends” on Ben Eisen’s All Time Top Ten podcast. Intrigued, I sought out his first solo album for ABC Dunhill, then bought Rainbow Ends when it was released.

Rhys is a long-time fan of Emitt Rhodes music, so we were able to have an interesting discussion focusing on his early bands, his one-man-band albums from the early 70s, the frustrating history behind his reason to walk away from being a recording artist, and his connection to Gabe (Welcome Back Kotter) Kaplan. Most importantly, we discuss THE MUSIC (in theory, what this show is about). More specifically, we talk a little about Emitt Rhodes first (sort of) solo album and then contrast it to his comeback album of 2016, “Rainbow Ends”. Has Emitt changed his songwriting approach? How different does an album with great session musicians compare to albums recorded methodically by one man playing and singing all parts? These and other vitally life-important questions will be answered.

Eric Reanimator’s Album I Love segment also focuses on a musician who started his career a long time ago. Eric Burdon’s 2013 album “ ’Til Your River Runs Dry” gets the Reanimator love.

I’d like to give huge thanks to Rhys for joining me on the show with so little sleep (though you’d never know it). He’s a passionate music lover, and it was a joy to get his perspective.

This time around, it's raining in the insulation and these aren't tear drops falling... this isn't a dark cyberpunk future and we aren't more human than human.

It's time to be an android, not a man...

 

It's time for more earthbound concerns and human songs, our guides as we walk through this wicked world, searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity are the Man in Black, or those who sing his songs and the dead man walking.. Johnny and Waylon.

 

For Love That Album: The Compilation Edition number 43, Eric is going to get into three tributes to Johnny and a box set of Waylon's tunes.

Here's songs for the dreamers.
