I believe I finally, right this moment, have sitting in my mail at home, a copy of James Last's VOODOO PARTY. After all these years, the time had come.

"The Failure of..." ?

Voodoo Party's a great LP. I feel weird playing Giant Man, thinking I might accidentally trigger a Fabio show. Definitely feel like I can't play it on the air for similar reasons.

  Thu. 1/11/18 3:22pm ?:

I thought I was the only one who listened to this song! (Peace of Mind, Blue Cheer.) Randy Holden is an under rated guitarist.
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:23pm Dean:

It's playing with shades of meaning of "failure" and of "of." Failure can be taken as implicating a moral tone, as in a want of success. But it also signifies the mere absence of something, as in "X failed to occur." As always, the genitive is ambiguous. Which way does it point? Does "the failure of noise" mean noise fails to accomplish something? Or does it mean there is a kind of failure inherent in noise?

There's also more than a whiff of ironic appropriation of marketing jargon ("Strength Through [Our Product]!" and, no doubt, the National Socialist Kraft durch Freude.

Heard Donovan live in Las Vegas, 1976. He opened for Yes. Imagine that.
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:29pm Dean:

And that was the last time I set foot in Las Vegas, unless you count a layover at the airport.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 3:29pm steveo:

@Rev. You can also hear the whole bop bop mm bop bop mm bop bop song just before giant man. A year or two ago the dj before Fabio (not Diane) played Mr. Giant Man early because he was not getting enough pledges (he felt). My first thought was that I had somehow forgotten to pick up my children from school. (That dropout was art, right?)
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:29pm Agent Peter:

Gibby sounds, uh.....different in this version.
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:31pm Bill Main:

Who plays lead guitar on Hurdy Gurdy Man? I always thought it was Jimmy Page, but apparently not, (P.S. I posted the comment about Blue Cheer)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 3:32pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

@steveo: indeed, that's the other anticipation: hearing the track before in its entirety. Also, the cover art (for the original release) is classic 1970s nuts. It may go on the wall as a tribute to Strength Thru Failure..
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:32pm Mark R:

Dean I saw that Donvan/Yes tour in Detroit. I was pleasantly surprised at how good Donovan was.
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:34pm Dean:

I thought so, too, Mark R.

The Butthole's version was a rare case of them doing a relatively straight cover. The other was Roky Erickson's Earthquake.

I bet Ad-Rock hung out with Donovan. He was married to Ione Skye, Donovan's daughter. She has also authored several children's books.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 3:38pm Rich in Washington:

You are right, Agent Peter. That was pretty on-the-nose for them as well.

Ione Skye was a babe. Rivers Edge?
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:39pm Dean:

My pleasure, LL. I think I was poised to reply because your question has often been in the back of my mind during this show.

Rich in WA: That album is one of the casualties of a mid-'80s LP purge, but I have since purchased later issues of live sets by Hillage that feature the tune. I saw him, too, around that time. He opened for ELO, I kid you not, at Anaheim Convention Center. Or maybe it was Long Beach, in which case Little Feat opened at Anaheim. Or vice versa. Anyway, I was most excited to hear Hillage live.

One of my regrets is never seeing the Surfers in their prime.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 3:40pm Rich in Washington:

@Dean, I too am slowly recovering all the LPs I stupidly parted with during the CD era, and again in the 'rip 'em to a harddrive and sell 'em' phase.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 3:42pm Rev. Turnip Druid:

I can claim to having seen the 'surfers in their prime, and it was, indeed, all that. It's my only consolation for having missed Motörhead in THEIR prime (RIP fast eddie). Sigh.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 3:43pm Rich in Washington:

BHS shows in the mid-80s were mindblowing. Nothing else like it. Maybe Caroliner Hernia Rainbow, whom I regrettably never saw, but can imagine.
Every time I saw the Buttholes in the 80s, it seemed like Smegma opened for them. I know for a fact at least twice, as Ju Suk Reet Meat told me that's how many he can remember.
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:43pm J:

I think you had to see the Surfers in their prime to really get it. Those records haven't held up too well IMO
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:43pm Dean:

At least you had a sensible excuse, Rich in WA. I hadn't yet started buying CDs, and I was tired of rock, so I unloaded some really interesting, now fairly scarce stuff, e.g., "Ys" by Il Balletto di Bronzo.
  Thu. 1/11/18 3:44pm J:

I hear massive tremolo. Sandy Bull?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 3:44pm Rich in Washington:

I missed classic era Motorhead by a few years. I did see the two guitar lineup. Probably the loudest rock show I've ever been to. With Megadeath and Cromags.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 3:45pm steveo:

love this echo-y guitar-y thing
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Thu. 1/11/18 3:46pm Rich in Washington:

@Dean. Yes. I would purge stuff based on my taste at the time. Now I adopt the packrat/hoarder mentality and keep everything. My wife says I have too many records based on the fact that I recently spent two hours desperately looking for a misfiled record. What does she know?

Someone I know was accused of being the zodiac killer. In a book and everything but the author of it was a much better suspect and pretty much nuts. I only found out this century.

Yes, geezerette. I might have to play it again when I get home tonight. Kinda hard to imagine David Crosby not digging it right away (per Brendan @4:28). It has always seemed to me to be a great way to introduce Miles to people, precisely because we *can* recognize pop ballad underlying it.

I don't recall the Vegas crowd being rude to Donovan that night, brainiac. Maybe most of us were, like me, just old enough to recognize his importance. But then the same should go for a Chicago crowd, I guess. Anyway, among my memories of the evening not related to the show itself, a buddy of mine rode the elevator at the hotel where the show took place with Rick Wakeman, and before the show my friends and I ran through the slot machines at the old MGM Grand (which burnt down four years later). We were underage, but we managed to slip nickels in the machines and pull the levers. I netted five bucks and vowed then and there never to return to Vegas.

I've always defended Donovan against detractors. One might say he's "hippy dippy". So what? Someone's gotta do it. Plus, his album Sunshine Superman is one of the very seminal psychedelic albums. I just read his autobiography.

My take is miles was looking for that rockstar mode and green, and knew Guinevere was beautiful. But you can't hear that in miles version. So cros called it out How could there be a better story?

Donovan was the first artist from the 60s outside the Beatles I got when I was in HS, so, I've always had a soft spot for him.

Thanks, I wish I could go back to sleep, trolly Mctrollface (see, I put as much effort into that as you did), but I did wake up from my siesta and am now amped up on green tea and a dram of Jura Scotch.

I like Donovan too. Hurdy Gurdy Man is one of the best songs ever.

The tune that always grabbed me at the time was "Wear Your Love Like Heaven," despite its ubiquity in a perfume commercial.

ngh tea and scotch is a wicked combination, I used to do that in late afternoon sometimes.
  Thu. 1/11/18 5:14pm flashbazbo:

Wear your love...is the song I use to defend Donovan. It's not the best defense.
  Thu. 1/11/18 5:14pm Dean:

Tea and scotch. Reminds me of Anita Brookner's gin and an omelet. They appear together in many of her novels.
Avatar    Thu. 1/11/18 5:15pm geezerette:

It was always a little bit touching to see how sincere, what a true believer Donovan was. We're a tough culture.

mmmm.tea and scoth.)

also not a good defense: Intergalactic Laxative...

Actually it might have been Irish whiskey, scotch wouldn't taste as good added to black tea.

@melinda: I went to court yesterday as a defendant for the first time in my life, for my bumper kissing the bumper of the car in front of me leaving nary a scratch. The lady insisted on calling the popo and waiting past the 30 day statute of limitations to make an injury claim (when she was on the phone walking about to look at my plate). Anyhosers, I hadn't slept much in the last week, but in court, after waiting an hour for my case, the officer purposely fell on his sword, and took a verbal mauling from the judge for not asking for a subpoena of the claimant. (I thanked him). So, I've been sleep deprived (hadn't been sleeping the last week), and felt like a need to reward myself(the dram) (going to a noise/avant/DIY/performance art/???? show tonight).

@melinda: Irish whiskey does go well w/ tea. I wouldn't mix scotch w/ tea, I couldn't adulterate good scotch!

@ northguineahills: No, I believe it is someone named Sybren Renema, who is listed as a featured performer on the track.
  Thu. 1/11/18 5:31pm Dean:

With a name like Renema, that vocalist should have performed with Donovan on "Intergalactic Laxative."

There. I've fulfilled my scatology quota for the day.

John Paul Jones, 2002: "No it wasn't Jimmy. It was me, Alan Parker on guitar, and Clem Cattini on drums. Donovan played acoustic guitar. I booked the session."

John Paul Jones, 2005: "I would like to confirm that the musicians on the record were as follows: Donovan, Accoustic Guitar; John Paul Jones, Arrangement/Musical Director and Bass Guitar; Alan Parker, Lead (electric) Guitar; Clem Cattini, Drums. No other musicians were involved in this session."
