Beast of Burden
I'm making a playlist of this stuff and 'Go Ahead John', 'Black Satin' and 'Rated X' are the highlights so far.
I actually found getting into OTC a bit easier cos it sounded really 'modern', even though it still doesn't sound like anything else really. Ido remember wondering why the tambourines were so fucking loud and awkward though and miles himself quite hard to pick out of the mix. Very odd record indeedBitches Brew was my first one too. One for the rewiring thread. In A silent Way was easy after that but then On The Corner was very confusing. it just sounded wrong, and still does.
that song is actually the first thing i like by him. did he make more like that?
it's a total cracker. lester bangs wrote about it which is why i knew about "get up with it". lester bangs was the big miles davis fanatic.I've just listened to this properly for the first time today. It's incredible.
Consigns all those post-rock bands to oblivion before they were even born.
