Probably this one has already been posted, but I won't search the whole thread (if it has not been posted, that's almost criminal):
And then... this one:
.... I was reading yesterday a book by Jonas Mekas, who is a damn genius and in one of the chapters he tells the story of how he became a musical producer for a very short time: he saw Tiny Tim playing and absolutely adored him, he thought that he was an amazing musician, so they recorded an album with 55 songs in 3 hours. They had to rush, but they managed to record 55 songs in just 3 hours (that's punk rock!)... but no label wanted to publish it because it sounded too bizarre, until he was "discovered" by the big labels 5 years later and they made him record the songs again, but without the original simplicity of just ukulele and voice and added drums, bass, guitar... But I was surprised to see that the very first time he recorded it was with Jonas Mekas!!!! (Certainly NOT this version, because they didn't include anything besides from his ukulele and his voice).
And the.... this one is simply amazing:
And, of course...
I really love how it was recorded as "experimental music" and it ended up being a "classic". It's fantastic, it's honest, it's brilliant!
Oh, yes, about Lou!Was gonna get to that Lou song! he’s written so many great songs.
And Lee Hazlewood, that I’m sure Crime and the City and Nuebauten is forever indebted to.
