@Doc - The string of albums in the 70s are just amazing. Some of my favorites.
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 10:27pm Franco Twinkie:

When Help Me came out I saw Joni and The LA Express at the Anaheim Convention Center, a building that I kid you not, looks like a flying saucer. The crushed velvet and patched denim crowd was out in force that night.

I can imagine! I only saw her once, around 1985. Great show.

I was stoned in the back seat of a Buick Riviera going down The Sunset Strip on a rainy night when we saw the billboard of For The Roses. The girl sitting nest to me said "I saw her at The Dorothy Chandler Pavillion."I knew nothing about Joni Mitchell. The next year, she's the one who would take me to the flying saucer.
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 10:41pm coelacanth∅:

i might've seen Joni Mitchell at an anti-nukes rally when shithead reagan was in office, but i don't remember much of that. apparently i saw a lot of "big" performers.

  Wed. 7/10/19 10:46pm Dean:

I love that she worked with Jaco Pastorius et al., but otherwise I'm not a big Joni fan. I'm thinking one of my high school English teacher's gave me a bad vibe about touchy-feely-folky stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 10:47pm Funky16Corners:

Oh, I think after 1971 or so she's much more than that.

Dean, She was much more than that. But seriously, the girls who were into Joni...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 10:49pm Funky16Corners:

Me too, Chresti. I wonder who the first person was to put that sound together, whether in an orchestra or a pop song?
  Wed. 7/10/19 10:51pm Dean:

Cripes, ^teachers (plural).

Yeah, just doesn't grab me. I enjoy hearing it now and then, mostly to embrace the nostalgia. But on balance, no.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 10:56pm chresti:

I know Blue, and the jazzy one that has Help Me on it. I was visiting a friend in Stockton who played it while driving around
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 10:57pm coelacanth∅:

my older brother had ladies of the canyon, which he maybe got because it had "woodstock" on it and, like me, he liked to get to the source...but in 10th grade i became surrounded by "flowerchildren" girls so -it was inevitable.
blue and court and spark were the ones they brought over. (then i got a bunch of others)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 10:57pm doctorjazz:

I always liked how Joni created her own guitar style/sound with those big open tunings, sorry of like Richie Havens (but sounding nothing like Richie Havens). Sounded like no one else.
(Nice cover here).
  Wed. 7/10/19 10:57pm Dean:

I knew guys who were into her, not so much girls. This is one of those utterly personal, subjective things. Lotsa people can't stomach Mozart, and I understand how that can be. Ultimately, I am fascinated by Mozart, less so by Mitchell.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 10:58pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, I love Joni deeply, but I know people that O respect that can't deal with her voice or overall style.
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 10:58pm northguineahills:

Haven't heard this cover, and I dig Claudine Longet!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 10:59pm Funky16Corners:

@NGH - This whole album is pretty good
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 10:59pm doctorjazz:

Don't know this Longet album, titled for a Stones tune, but we're hearing Beatles.
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:00pm Franco Twinkie:

I've had to rearrange my insufferable know-it-all rock music mind many times. Joni Mitchell is a great early example of someone going "check this out" and me going "Whaa!?!"
  Wed. 7/10/19 11:01pm Dean:

I'll interject a release valve. I felt the same way about Jethro Tull for y-e-a-r-s. Then suddenly one day I got them (the early stuff, I mean). Could happen with Joni, too. I remain interested in her, which is a sign that I haven't given up. (Compare Gary's show and Soundgarden, in whom I had and have and will always have zero interest.)
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:04pm Erica:

What is that about the new shows? Sorry Larry my internet cut out.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:04pm doctorjazz:

Love Tull until Aqualung, saw them on that tour. A few songs on Jini's Blue can knock me over (A Case Of You, California). So I'm sappy...
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:06pm northguineahills:

Wow, you listened to music at age 11? I didn't start until age 16 (I was more into books).
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:09pm doctorjazz:

I got a transistor radio when I was 12, and was hooked on music.

Shoot, I was listening to music from, I dunno, age 4 or 5. Avidly. Beatles, Rick Nelson, Monkees, later Hair ST, classical, and then Medieval and Renaissance recitals. Music was ubiquitous. My mom and dad had great LPs and 45s. I dug in.

Music was never not playing growing up in my family, but my tastes were developing independently as far back as I remember - age 3 or 4
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:16pm Funky16Corners:

NGH - I was listening to AM radio pretty intently from the time was was 6 or 7, thanks to a visit with some older cousins. I don't think I started collecting records until I was 12, but my ears were wide open.

Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:19pm northguineahills:

Like everything nerdlling endeavor I've done, I jumped in head first and researched everything and saw as many shows possible as my allowance/jobs would allow. My music tastes were pretty much where there are now before I was 20.
  Wed. 7/10/19 11:20pm Dean:

Yeah, well, I was anticipating Dead shows and Beethoven piano sonatas even as my parents were preparing to conceive me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:21pm Little Danny:

Mine too, NGH. Even while I'm still constantly finding whole new-to-me styles and sounds, the aesthetic that formed in my teens guides my appreciation
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:25pm Franco Twinkie:

I developed my unerring taste in music by coming straight home from school and listing to records or the radio until I went to bed, and then getting up in the middle of the night to lay on the living room floor and listen to more music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

The importance of listening to the radio late at night, under the covers until you fall asleep cannot be understated.
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:26pm coelacanth∅:

my parents, in one of countless seemingly contradictions, gathered the whole family in the living room -probably almost once/week? -to sing along with records. first it was peter paul & mary (2 albums) then Harry Belafonte's "calypso" then "bob nick jon" by the kingston trio...then meet the beatles...which blew my doors off.
according to my older sister i knew all the words to meet the beatles when i was 5.
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:26pm Franco Twinkie:

And to this day, that's the way Chresti and I live - music, music, music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:27pm doctorjazz:

Think my tastes have changed much over the years...the constant was always wanting to check out/explore new stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:27pm Little Danny:

LOL Dean you're so Dean. When did classical music actually draw you in? It was 90% of what my parents listened to but curiously I've never gotten obsessed with it in the same way
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:27pm Erica:

That's how I was in my teens, come home from school and listen to music while doing my homework.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:28pm Funky16Corners:

The only taste you really need is "to seek the new". My ears are voracious and insatiable.

Good parents!
  Wed. 7/10/19 11:31pm Dean:

I can't fathom having tastes solidified during my teens. Surely you can't mean that? The effect of radio was strong and enduring. You'd hear shit and think, "I like that," and then different shit and so, "I like that, too." And you'd have to adjust the reasons you'd considered for liking what you previously liked. I can't imagine having a set aesthetic about anything.

Classical music grabbed me around 4 or 5. Think Tchaikovsky music played at Christmas, which for me endures to this day. I wanted to be the conductor. I no longer want to be the conductor, but you get the picture.

Gene Shepherd only came into my life with The Phantom Of The Open Hearth...which the whole family enjoyed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:33pm Funky16Corners:

There was a period when I was in middle school where I listened to WOR from about 4PM to 10PM every day. Bob and Ray when I got home, followed by CBS Mystery Theater, then there was a rotating slot at 8PM, the Shep at 9PM
  Wed. 7/10/19 11:34pm Dean:

I checked out records from the library. Bowie's Space Oddity, the Nonesuch Turkish Village Music (much later), Humble Pie, all sorts of stuff. It sticks with me.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:37pm Funky16Corners:

Having the availability of music to borrow and experiment listening to is a huge boon to young listeners (or at least being exposed to a big/good record collection)
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:37pm coelacanth∅:

we did the Shep for quite a while; then my brother got a big ol' piece of furniture from the curb during junk week. a stereo console that worked just fine. it shut off automatically at the end of a record so we started going to sleep to Reverberi's first album (all "hip" classical tunes), tubular bells and ...probably Joni Mitchell.
  Wed. 7/10/19 11:38pm Dean:

Man, I loved that Reverberi record...and then I sold it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:38pm Funky16Corners:

Ahhh...Tubular Bells...but the side with Viv Stanshall's spoken parts.

I vividly recall first hearing TB at a rehearsal for a community theater performance on which I was working. This would have been right around the time of its release. I was blown away.

@Dean: "aesthetic" means "aesthetic." The qualities (otherworldly, hypnotic, droning, cavernous, ecstatic, etc.) that drew me to certain songs in my youth still function as my ultimate subconscious guidelines.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:41pm doctorjazz:

Got into music DESPITE my parents, have to say. They wee European refugees, and the stereo would play The Barry Sisters, The Ray Charles Singers, like that. They sent Me, a 50 lb 10 year old, on 2 busses with a 40 lb accordion to lessons, where I spent an hour every week playing The Anniversary Song (I think...O,how we danced,on the night we were we...). Took a while to recover...

That Gloria Loring was incredible and totally new to me. And what a cool, heavy, head-nodding arrangement on this Sarah Vaughan
Avatar Wed. 7/10/19 11:42pm coelacanth∅:

that turned me onto Chopan (at least)
i have my brother's original gatefold album with Reverberi, Chopan, Liszt and Schumann hanging out on a street corner,+ 2 other reissue copies. wouldn't be without it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 7/10/19 11:43pm Funky16Corners:

I was fortunate to grow up in a house where my Pop was a professional musician (piano) and history teacher, with a big collection of classical and jazz records. We were all encouraged to learn and play instruments.

Beg to differ, LD. The aesthetic has to do with how we perceive through our senses and, more precisely, how those perceptions contribute to our experiences of the beautiful. We can learn to perceive differently and we can adjust our notion of what is beautiful. Sure, there might be hard-wired preferences, but those don't absolutely determine our opinions.

When I was 15-16 we would watch The Obscene Steven Clean spin records at KPPC on Chester Street in Pasadena, which was the sister station of KMPX in San Francisco. It was in this place that looked like a dentist office with outside speakers. Kids would hang out in the courtyard smoking and watch Mr. Clean play Jeff Beck records. I decided being a DJ at an underground radio station was one of the higher callings in life.

@Dean: I sorta agree but still like 95% of the music I like in my mid-'40s adheres, at least abstractly, to an aesthetic that had coalesced in my teens

(Or maybe you're just objecting to my use of the word "aesthetic"?)

Not your use of it, but your definition ("aesthetic" means "aesthetic," and all the stuff about "otherworldly," "hypnotic," etc.). There are objective aspects to the aesthetic, e.g., symmetry, balance, number, contrast, etc. It's not all "otherworldy."

But even so, I can't fathom WFMU listeners, never mind DJs, not being almost entirely flexible about the next thing that comes around.

We are a flexible lot. Almost to a fault.

have a good evening everyone! Thanks again Larry! Keep stretching!
