On the lighter tradition, here's a funny thing I picked up on just last night. I was watching a BBC special on Kraftwerk's residency at London's Tate Modern last year and the group's official photographer (he's only allowed to photograph their robotic counterparts, though) observed how the fusion of man and machine has arrived in the present day as concert-goers have their smartphones in the air, in lieu of those candles, etc. That tickled me.


Somehow "Lay Down (Cell Phones in the Rain)" just doesn't sound right.  ;D

Besides having a passion for the Beatles, I have one for sit down water skiing (hydrofoiling).

This is me last Sunday, jumping over a gopro camera that we created a floating island for.

Very cool!

Isn't it still a matter of taste?

I'd say that OK Computer and The Bends by Radiohead are excellent albums. And Grace by Jeff Buckley. But I can understand that a lot of people don't regard them as such.

Yes Cor, thats the trouble, everybody just picks their favourite artists

I knew hombre would pick Dylan, The Stones & The Who and Todd would pick SF Sorrow  ;D

If were talking importance then Sgt Pepper is way ahead of the rest, it was monumentally important, it basically gave all other artists carte blanche to experiment in the studio

others Id pick;

Heavy Weather - Weather Report (perfect blending of Jazz & Rock and Jaco's finest moments)
Close To The Edge - Yes
Low - David Bowie
In The Court Of The Crimson King - King Crimson (the first full blown progressive rock album)
Dark Side Of The Moon - Pink Floyd (monumentally brilliant)
Revolver - Beatles (truly great songwriting and very influential)
Whats The Story - Oasis (started Britpop, a return to guitars and drums and pure songs after years of synth oriented rock) stacked with great songs
Selling England By The Pound - Genesis (incredibly influential)
After The Goldrush - Neil Young
LA Woman - The Doors
Rumours - Fleetwood Mac (superb faultless songwriting - timeless)

I don't trust perfection and I'm very sceptical about relevance and influence!

David Bowie is said to have influenced millions but if Woody Guthrie had only influenced Bob Dylan, he'd be the more influential artist by a country mile.
It's not how many got influenced, it's 'who' got influenced.

My favourite Dylan LP is 'Nashville Skyline' but it has more flaws in it than the Empire State.

Yes, you got a point there. Maybe my list should be seen just as the most representative albums of the music I like.

I'm not a fan of country music, but Nashville Skyline is an exception; I really like that album.

But the word "perfection", in the way I used it, shouldn't be taken as a technical issue. Actually I love 60's rock music in part because of all those little mistakes in the recordings. They give certain uncontrolled randomness that makes the music more natural and unrepeatable.

Thanks Bobber, that's great.

Coincidentally I was on another site talking about the Cow Palace show in San Francisico in 1965. It was a pretty frantic affair even by Beatle standards. Some guy got up on stage and knocked off John's cap and then threw himself legs first into the crowd. In photos the stage looks like a battle area with stuff all over it and of course there are girls being handed up to be evacuated - but they really look to be in a bad way.

Then I noticed that as you say the Beatles had long a break after this concert which was the last of the tour. Maybe they were already thinking of giving up touring. It wouldn't be surprising! Six weeks would be an eternity in those days for the Beatles to be out of the public eye.
