On the other hand even if Kosmo don’t own his albums wasn’t Elton the top selling act in America during the 1970s?

Kosmo doesn't own his albums?  Are they on loan or is he just renting them?

?

Are you referring to my replies to some of the dumber comments on Chris Richards' piece?

I also said that Neil Young's Geffen trouble was a bigger FU than TS's re-recordings.

The plethora of "who cares" responses was really annoying, especially when they're smug about it. So many people think they're above pop culture yet they take lots of their own time responding to it.

Same thing with Ann Hornaday's Tom Cruise article. So many suckers responded the same way.

Now I await Richards and Hornaday swapping subjects (I'd like to see that; could be interesting).

As for hunting, this is my current search. Specifically, what Scarlatti "Toccata per cembelo" is it? And is it Domenico or Alessandro? I just got a CD of this from my library and it's the only piece that I can't fully identify.

A person who ordered the new Taylor Swift album got a misprint with 'cursed' electronic music on it instead.

The cursed' electronic music was identified as a 12 inch released with Cabaret Voltaire/Thuderhead on each side.

https://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-66179045

No one knows how this misprint happened except it may because both were pressed in France at the same plant.

And, speaking of misprint I saw the other day that there were copies of Prince's "Lovesexy" that on one side was The Soup Dragons first album also released that week.

never seen the boss with long hair



JULY 11 1971
The Bruce Springsteen Band opened for Humble Pie at the Sunshine In, Asbury Park in New Jersey. After the show an impressed Peter Frampton from Humble Pie, tells Springsteen and the band he'd like to have them open for them on a national basis. Frampton also said he would be happy to get the band an audition with his record label, A & M Records. For no logical reason Springsteen’s manager Tinker West declined both offers on the spot

A+ Musicological banter

"Try That In A Small Town" is a pretty offensive song for sure, but as a songwriter, I'm also offended that it took 5 people to write that steaming pile of crap RS

I also liked Sheryl Crow'as take on this "It's Just Lame"

Chuck D nailed this one, so very true

When the industry media covers a artists death and obituary BETTER than the independent most recent work of artists… it makes you question any true integrity of support.

The thing about this song and which is hammered home by the video is just how incongruous its message is with country music historically. You’re talking about “try punching a cop in a small town” and singing it in front of the county courthouse. The zombies of Waylon Jennings and Hank Williams should be rising from the grave and kicking this dudes ass. It’s hilarious how the Jason Aldeans of the world are “outlaws” then create the carry the water for cops crap. Pick a lane.
