Finished watching the Velvet Underground documentary on Apple TV. While they were a band that took themselves way to seriously, they did produce one of the greatest and most influential albums of all time, despite it not selling at the time. Was a shame Lou Reed was unable to contribute to the Doco as he was the driving force behind the band. Was interesting to hear from Bowie and Jackson Browne.
I was looking for something to watch last night and I chanced upon the ‘Classic Albums’ series on SBS. I‘ve watched these programs before and they fascinate me. I love it when they sit at the mixing console and they isolate the instrument to show you what the player is up to in this bit of the song.
I watched Black Sabbath last night and the making of ‘Paranoid’. No matter what, when you rocked up to someone’s house this was an LP you’d hear again and again. It still sounds sensational. Those riffs are eternal. Shout out to Tony, Bill, Geezer and Ozzie.
