Memorial Day

Before we get to the music, lets talk about Memorial Day.....of course it is set aside to honor those AMericans who fought for our country and have fallen. Both of my Granfathers, as well as my Father in Law, fought gloriously for the freedoms that we enjoy in the USA, none of these men died in battler, but to those who did, thank you, and you will never be forgotten

Memorial Day, for me, though, involves "Memorializing" EVERYONE who is no longer with us.....we all lose people from our lives, and the older we get, it seems that more and more of us end our journey and get onto the next part, whatever that may be. I hope that wherever you all are, you can read this and KNOW that BigScott62 is thinking about you, missing you, and at the same time glad for you that you have gone on to a better place.

This is personal, you folks around the world who read my blog are not going to care anything about this, but for me it is theraputic......I want to remember my Dad, Mike Miller, who passed away 3/30/90, and my Mom, Bobbi Dunlap, who left us on 11/14/ parents-in law, who were just like a second set of parents to me, are gone too, my father in law in 1990 and my mother in law Marjorie Finney just two short weeks ago. You are missed. Over the years, different friends and acquaintances who affected my life in some way or another have gone on, and at this time I want to remember Rick Meyer, Terry Copeland, Dave Ogden, Jerry Scott, Tim Turner, Jimmy Smith, Joe Decker, John Decker, Cory Atkins, Burly Sigman, Larry SOuthward, Barb Elliston, William Tate, Kim Earles, Donnie Greene, David Thomas, arlen Anderson, Dwight Glover, Melton Gilreath, Pam White, Donnie White, Bob mcWilliams, Dave Edwards, Mark Mack, Brian Leeth, Elsworth Brown, Lynn Brown, Dan Willman, Kevin Arthur, Dave Paaske, Tim Reading, Jean Wilcoxen, Teri Dotson, Denny Williams, Steve Stoltz, Bob Humphrey....I'm sure I'm forgetting many, but all of you had an effect on my life at one point or another, and to one degree or another, and I wouldn't be the person I am today had it not been for meach and every one of you. I am glad you are in a better place.

But most of all, my daughter Victoria.....after ten years of fertility problems, we finally concieved in 1995. The pregnancy was normal, all went well, until eight months...on December 9, 1995, my wife felt funny, we went to the doctor, they performed an ultrasound. There was no heartbeat, our precious little girl was stillborn. Never in my life has anything been so sad, so hurtful, so painful, so crushing......I love that little girl every bit as much as a 16 year old as I did on that day. We were only going to ahve one child, due to the fertility issues, and in 1997 our son Grant was born, so incredibly some good DID come out of the loss of Victoria. Had we not lost her, we would never have had Grant.....I'd prefer, of course to have both, but that wasn't going to happen. Victoria and Grant, I love you and your Mom both, more than anyone in the world. One day we will all be reunited, and Victoria it will be up to you and your grandmas to show us around. It will be a happy day. Until then, remember that you are not forgotten, not even for a second.

Some music, today, from some folks who are no longer with us.....with rock n roll people, obviously it isn't hard to find a ton of them who have passed on, I have selected these few....I thank you for what you did while you were alive and for making my life a tiny bit better. You, neither, are forgotten.

Some "Live" albums from some people I wish were still alive......favorite performers of mine from different eras of my life, for whom I wish things would have gone differently and wish they were still performing live shows.....the world is a lesser place without all of them.

Not too difficult, then to come up with 4 or 5 rock stars who have gone on to a better life.....favorites of mine would include the obvious, Kurt Cobain and Jimi why not? My favorite Hendrix release ever was actually always the posthumous "Jimi Hendrix Concerts", culled from a variety of shows he performed in his short life....I would have loved to have seen him perform, obviously, but this double LP (1 CD) is a fine substitute.

When  Kurt Cobain passed away in 1994 (Good Lord is that close to TWENTY years ago? Not possible), I was going through some things, depression and the like.....obviously my problems were not of a variety as serious as Mr. Cobain's......he and Nirvana made some incredible music, some unbelievably good music for my money, and I have an absolutely gigantic stash of Nirvana material, with damn near every live show they ever performed....pretty much at random I select "Play the Fucking Guitar Man" from Vienna, 11/22/89, two full years before the band "broke", but teh genius and greatness of what was to come was evident (to be accurate, the second half of this disc is culled from recordings from Sacramento California, 2/12/90.

In my 20's or so, maybe my favorite band of them all was the similar to both Hendrix and Nirvana in that they, in thier relatively short "life span" put out a limited amount of material, and yet, today, a mountain of their work exists. I'd guess that along with Nirvana, Hendrix, and the Rolling Stones, I probably have more Clash material than of anyone else. Joe Strummer carried on after the Clash broke up, but lets get no avail. Strummer passed away at about teh age of 50, he left some incredibly powerful stuff (along with the rest of the Clash of course), I select to represent him a show from Berkely CA, 2/7/79, which allegedly was the Clash's first US performance.....the Clash were at the peak of their power, about the time of "Give Em ENough Rope".

Rory Gallagher I also loved, although he wasn't a legend on the level of the other three. I did love his music though, and it sounds to me as if he was an excellent and exciting live performer although I never had the pleasure of seeing him live. A collection of live tunes taken from London's Paris Theater, during the 1971-72 phase of Gallagher's career, includes energetic versions of a lot of his olders tuff, including one of my favorite tracks from anyone, "Landromat".....

Anyway, I am not even beginning to insinuate that "dead rock stars" equate with "dead military warriors", all I am saying is that on this day of Memorial, I remember these guys as well. They made my life a bit more enjoyable, those who fought for freedom made life better, and the friends/associates listed above helped mold and shape the person I am today for better or worse.

Please remember ANYONE who has gone on on this's your choice to do so. Decorate a memorial site, say a prayer, but mostly, just REMEMBER because that is what a day of memorial should be for. I dedicate today's blog to the memory of my daughter Victoria Amanda Miller......and to anyone else who is gone, and YOU happen to miss.

Some random Mott the Hoople rarities

Mott the Hoople were one of my all-time favorite bands, without question. I was going to do a "greatest ever" post on them so as to put all of their classic studio albums up for all, maybe I will at another time, but I got looking at the shelf, and there is SO MUCH material that so many might not have heard....I think I'd rather do it as a "rarities" post. Like so many of the other bands of which I consider myself a "fan", I probably have 50-75 of their shows, the quality of which, of course, varies greatly (although, frankly, most of theirs tend to run toward the "poor" end), if there is a Mott show you've been looking for, chances are I may have it (unless for some reason you want something from the wretched, post-Hunter "Pointing and Shouting" era, although I would find that extremely hard to believe).

So, what are NOT included here are their stunning debut album, its frankly awful follow-up "Wildlife", or the comeback "Mad Shadows", or the classic "Brain Capers".....maybe another time. We'll start off with "Rock N Roll Queen", which includes just a small taste of the early greatness of the band (the great "Thunderbuck Ram", one of the hardest rocking songs ever recorded (from Mad Shadows) is here)...there are other anthologies available of their early work, I really recommend simply listening to the albums in their entirety (except for "Wildlife"). Of course, as great as they were, their career changed when David Bowie "discovered" them and gave them "All the Young Dudes".....instead of just a really good rock n roll band, they were now glitter/glam heroes, and it was a perfect fit. I have here the remastered/expanded version of "All the Young Dudes", which includes some demos, some live tracks, and an Ian Hunter/David Bowie duo on the title track. In a move some might refer to as excess, I have also included the THREE (!) disc "All the Young Dudes" box set, with more odds and ends of varying quality than you could possibly imagine. I am a FAN of this band, this is a fan's collection for certain.

What else, lets see...."Two Miles From Heaven" continues the obscurities trend with a vocal version of "You Really Got Me", and demo versions of some of the early tracks (some quite good, such as "The Road to Birmingham", some inferior such as "Thunderbuck Ram").....both "Hoopling Furiously" and "BBC Recordings" contain, well, BBC recordings of the older material. I'll cap it off with just two of the many concert recordings of theirs that I have, "Very Flash, Very Rude" is a pretty good set from Winterland San Francisco 1973, and from the same year a show from Boston I say I have MANY concerts from these guys, request your favorites and I will post sometime in the future, also, I'll likely post all those classic early albums (The debut through "The Hoople" anyway), because they deserve to be heard in full.......also quite a bit of Ian Hunter's post-Mott output is worthwhile.

I hope everyone likes this stuff, and I hope I didn't put up too much off-the-wall stuff here, I wanted to tribute them with some REAL's NOT the "best" Mott the Hoople post ever, but I didn't intend it to be either. This is a FAN speaking, and the more obscurities and eccentricities I can find, the better. Links will be up by morning, I have an extensive collection of their stuff so request away if you wish, leave a comment if you should care to as well (in case, like, I put copy the tracks in the wrong order or something, which I guess I did on the Screaming Trees post, for which I apologize....I'm just doing this for the fun of it, if I'm something less than accurate at times, such is life.)

Happy Mothers Day!

 My own Mother 1942-2010

Special dedication to ALL Mothers on this Mothers Day: I love you all and you all do a fantastic job.....I lost my own mother in November of 2010, as I type this my Mother In Law whom I also love dearly fights to draw here final few breaths, her journey is over, she is on to a better place.....the best "mother" I have left is my wife, Carla, who has been a tremendous, A++++++ winning Mother to our son Grant, I have nothiong but GREAT things to say about the job she has if your own Mom, maybe a great Mother In Law or Step Mother, or even the lady who bore and raised your own children is still with us and walking this earth, take a minute to hug her and thank her for successfully competing in the hardest, yet most important profession in the universe, that of being a good MOTHER........I commend all mothers on this day, and I have some music that I hope they will enjoy as well.......Before we get to some Mothers Day music, I'd like to show a picture of MY own Mother, as well as one of my wife Carla, the mother of my kids (Grant, 14, and Victoria, who was tragically stillborn in 1995).....

My lovely wife of 25 years,Carla Miller,  the mother of my children Grant (14) and Victoria (tragically stillborn in 1995)

With that lets get to some music.....starting out old school, mid 60's, with the ORIGINAL "mothers", the Mothers of Invention of course, a pair of unqestionable 5-star classics, "Freak Out!" and "We're Only In it For the Money".....both are ingenious, hilarious, biting, and work every bit as well today as they did at the time of release.....two simply brilliant albums.

The other selections are going to be a bit more obscure and less significant, lets return to the very first days of Seattle's soon-to-be-famous grunge movement with a fine album from Mother Love Bone. Singer Andrew Wood would pass away before the debut album was released, the "Temple of the Dog" project is a dedication to his memory. ("Say Hello to Heaven" from that album has always been the song I dedicate to my daughter Victoria on the date of her birth/death) Of course members
would form Pearl jam, but give this a listen, Mother Love Bone could have been.....

Ahead we travel to the current century....I have posted Mommy and Daddy before (the album "Duel at Dawn" which I love) is the remainder of their work of which I am aware, "Live How You Listen" and "Fighting Style Killer Panda"....neither as good as "Duel at Dawn", but I love these, also, and often wonder and i the ONLY "Mommy and Daddy" fan in the universe?

For the most part, these remaining albums feature some obscure stoner rock (which you KNOW I love) from bands that happen to have the word "mother" in the title......

From Brazil 2007 comes MotherCow, some very competent, hard pounding stoner sludge.....good banging stuff with titles like "Pussy Pearl".

From Baltimore Maryland (2011) comes a FINE EP from Mother Sun Flower titled "Mother Sun Fucker", four great tracks.....more work would be greatly appreciated from these boys

From Sweeden 1993 and mixing some punk/grunge/metal sounds into a really fine album "The Mother Ship Has Landed" we have Mother SUperior, who I would opt to listen to over country-mates the Hellacopters anytime. Good album, this one.

Borlange, home of Stoner greats Dozer, are also home to Mother of God. They don't hide the Dozer influences on the EP "Forging a New Path", crushing riffs and howling vocals make this the kind of timeless stuff I'll be listening to in 20 years.

Long, swirling, effects laden psychedelic stoner metal is the norm for Mother Mars and this fine album "Primitives" from 2009....if my description sounds redundant, you don't understand I'm paying compliments with those words of love.

And from California and all but unkown come Mother's Green, not exactly the next Nirvana or Beatles, but again, all in good fun, some hard hitting loud stoner rock and what more can we ask, other than that?

OK.....That is it for the Mothers Day music.....hope you liked it, you know I love all of you MOTHERS, each and every one of you, you all do the best with what your have to work with, doing the most important job in the universe, raising the children. I love you and am grateful to every one of you!

Some sleazy, trashy glitter-glam comps

How about some comps today, just for a LOT of fun? Four discs of lesser-known glitter-glam stompers that tend to be on the sleazy side, which of course is what makes this so much fun! Many of the bands will, I'm sure, be unknown to you, hardly the point......So often I make references to "Nuggets", if there were a "Nuggets" of sleazy glitter-glam, these four discs would be a hell of a starting point......just kick back on a Saturday and groove to this forgotten stuff, as always, don't take it too seriously, this is some FUN stuff.....get ready for a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY tomorrow, with a special Mother Day post (of course!)
