Drum solos!

DrumsThe 1976-77 recordings of The Langley Schools Music Project, a 60-voice chorus of rural school children from western Canada, singing tunes by the Beach Boys, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, The Bay City Rollers, and others. You must hear them!

Tom Waits sings Make it rain on some TV show. More at ”Never could stand that dog”…, I mean, “Tom Waits Fan”. By the way, you remember Tom Waits acting in “Down By Law”, “Mystery Train” and “Coffee and Cigarettes”, right? Did you know that he played in 21 movies, including Stallone’s Paradise Alley, Fisher King, The Two Jacks and Ironweed?

The number one songs in Heaven: The Coasters on R&B Sociology

Great drum solos from “DrummerWorld”. Also, a large number of detailed biographies in the sidebar. Big Bass Drum from Purdue University. How does one go about tuning the big bass drum?

Rare Live Songs by Leonard Cohen. (From J-Walk). Coincidently, last week I randomly pulled an old copy of “The Spice-box of Earth”, and started re-reading Cohen's poetry from 1968:
I wonder how many people in this city
live in furnished rooms.

Late at night when I look out of the buildings
I swear I see a face in every window
looking back at me,
and when I turn away
I wonder how many go back to their desks
and write this down.
(Good sounds!)

Lady in Satin

Billie_holiday_lady A Russian collection of Tom Waits MP3’s recorded mostly at some concerts around (Poor quality). Text of Earth Died Screaming:
Rudy's on the midway
And Jacob's in the hole
The monkey's on the ladder
The devil shovels coal
With crows as big as airplanes
The lion has three heads
And someone will eat the skin that he sheds
And the earth died screaming
The earth died screaming
While I lay dreaming of you…
