This Uzbek disco clip is pilfered from the late Soviet Union-era movie “Take Care of the Women! (Beregite zhenschin!).” Though I can find no information on the band, this track does but the “party” into “Communist Party,” no?
[Music] Rahsaan Roland Kirk – Say A Little Prayer
Surely we could use a few prayers these days, considering the damage being wrought by the Corona Virus (and by idiotic local bureaucrats hell-bent on caging populations like monkeys in a zoo).
The Rahsaan Roland Kirk Quintet included Ron Burton on piano, Henry Pearson on bass, Richie Goldberg on drums and Joe Texidor on percussion in this video.
[Music] Peter Gabriel – Passion
A blessed Western Calendar Good Friday to my readers, courtesy of the Christ, with Peter Gabriel providing a fitting soundtrack.

[Music] Bob Dylan – Murder Most Foul
Bob Dylan has outlasted everyone. It must be quite heavy to be the man who influenced almost everyone of note, and to watch so many of these acolytes pass away. Yet Bob still manages to release good music, and this nearly 17-minute opus proves it.
Thanks to Jeff for letting me know about this. It was worth every minute.
[Music] Rachel’s – The Sea And The Bells [Full Album]
The first time I remember hearing this was at Aron’s Records, and I couldn’t quite wrap my mind what genre this album was. I suppose Rachel’s could be seen as a precursor to post-rock or a lot of the modern classical music coming from labels like Erased Tapes. This album remains gorgeous listening.
[Music] Hüsker Dü – Crystal
We beg your pardon for the long delay in posting. Dealing with a long and brutal quarantine both in China and now the Inland Empire has worn your scribe out a bit. Thankfully, the music resumes. Enjoy a brutal piece of work by Hüsker Dü this evening.
[Music] Ningen Isu – Heartless Scat
Ningen Isu (The Human Chair) are a metal band out of Hirosaki, Japan. I got a kick out of these guys for their imagery, their influences (which include Robert Fripp, Tommy Iommi and Judas Priest) and their rather unique costume choices.
[Music] Killing Joke – I Am The Virus (Lyric Video)
Killing Joke, always ahead of the curve…
[Music] Ernst Stoltz – Turlough O’Carolan: Farewell To Music
Ernst Stoltz performs music on the viola da gamba of legendary Irish tunesmith Turlough O’Carolan’s final work. Happy St. Patrick’s Day (yes, celebrated by Orthodox Christians as well) to my friends, and especially to those Patricks, Patricias and every other derivation of the name.
