Welcome to episode 75 of Love That Album.

 

I’m joined by my friend and fellow presenter from the See Hear podcast, Mr Bernard Stickwell to discuss the legacy of the songwriter, musician, orchestrator and singer, Judee Sill. In the early 1970s Judee gave the world two magnificent records - her eponymous debut and its follow up Heart Food. In an era when songwriters like Joni Mitchell and Warren Zevon (who covered one of Judee's songs) were revered, and the American West Coast sound was popular, it seems bizarre that Judee’s artistic triumphs were commercial failures. The lack of commercial success, however, was just another disappointment in a life full of hardship. Bernie and I discuss her life’s story as well as what makes the music so wonderful. If you haven’t caught up with her repertoire yet, Bernie and I urge you to get these two albums. Thank us later.

 

Eric Reanimator returns for another great Album I Love segment to discuss a compilation by country songwriter (and actor) Hoyt Axton.

Hey music lovers, it’s time for Episode 15 of the Love That Album: Compilation Edition hosted by Eric Reanimator.

 

Anyone who’s been listening to the show for long enough knows three things about his music tastes: he loves his outlaw country, he loves his punk, and he loves his Scandinavian rock from the nineties and noughties. It’s the third category he brings to your earholes for this episode.

 

He’s bringing to your attention two Scandinavian rock compilations, each with three CDs (all with awesome covers), so there’s plenty of music for Eric to put into historical context and explain his love for. He discusses Pushin’ Scandinavian Rock To The Man, and then he launches into Riot on the Rocks. Do you dig The Hellacopters, The Flaming Sideburns and Thee Ultra Bimboos? Good!!! There’s plenty more music in these collections from the likes of The Defectors, Gluecifier, The Royal Beat Conspiracy, and The Launderettes. They comprise high energy rock and roll…and you gotta love that. Eric gives you the good oil on these great bands and these CD collections.
