This is Trenet's live version of "La Mer" which was recorded about 15 years after the original 1946 release. It was later completely re-written by Jack Lawrence to an extent in which it bears no resemblance whatsoever to the original Trenet version but nevertheless became a memorable hit for Bobby Darin in 1960 reaching # 6 on the Billboard charts.

I like the somewhat jazzed up Bobby Darin version... figures, no?

Robert Fripp: Exposures Disk 8 (Daryl Hall/Vocals)



The last CD I listened to before sleep were some Bach Violin Sonatas... a few hours later I woke up and listened to this CD for the 1st time. It really was a quantum leap experience, I enjoyed both thoroughly. (y)

Willowglass: Willowglass (2005)
Willowglass: Book of Hours (2008)


Willowglass is actually British solo artist/multi-instrumentalist Andrew Marshall. His music is inspired by the symphonic prog giants of the 70s, but does not sound overly derivative. This is pretty good keyboard driven instrumental prog, especially the Book of Hours album.

Primeval, hard and uncompromising - as original electric blues should be.

Visited an old friend today. A practice to assess my mental health.

I know folks who "can't get" this music. They either hate it or dismiss it completely as not even worthy of an opinion. Some suggest it is silly, or amateurish ... goofy and not to be taken seriously ... strange and unlistenable ... or just plain ol' unlistenable. I wouldn't want to be like those folks.

So every once in a while I take out this Residents album (or one of the others in my collection -- I have quite a few) and give it a spin on my VPI Scoutmaster, just to see what my reaction to it is. As I said, to assess my mental health -- as a measure of my sanity.

I wouldn't want to be like those folks I mentioned above. Apparently I'm not. At least not yet. I visited the sublime and pronounce myself "still sane".
