Revisiting my extensive music collection, one artist at a time

Forty Year Friday – …AND THE REST (PART 4) / IN CONCLUSION

[Welcome to Forty Year Friday, the weekly series on my favorite albums of 1977]

These are the final four albums celebrating their 40th anniversaries that I’ll be highlighting, followed by a list of others that deserved to be included in this series.

Artist: EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER
Album: WORKS VOLUME 1

Many music critics attribute the (temporary) demise of progressive rock at the tail end of the ‘70s to the overblown nature of artists like Yes and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. There’s no denying that both groups took their sounds to the outer reaches of the musical universe, but among the many things I love about them, and prog-rock in general, is how they pushed boundaries without regard for prevailing trends. While Yes was dealing with a revolving door of band members, the super-trio of keyboard whiz Keith Emerson (formerly of The Nice), founding King Crimson bass/guitar/vocalist Greg Lake and drumming maestro Carl Palmer (previously with The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown and Atomic Rooster) were taking the concept of rock music inspired by classical compositions to a new level by briefly touring with an orchestra, until it nearly bankrupt them. That tour was in support of their fifth studio album, the sprawling 2-record set known as Works Volume 1. Each member had his own solo side while the final two tracks were group recordings. Emerson’s “Piano Concerto No. 1” is aptly titled; an 18-minute orchestral piece that doesn’t break any new ground but has some unsurprisingly impressive piano work and numerous buoyant melodies. Lake co-wrote some strong songs with his former King Crimson bandmate, Peter Sinfield, including the bombastic ballad “Lend Your Love To Me Tonight” and the haunting & gorgeous “C’est La Vie.” Palmer’s strongest contributions were “The Enemy God Dances WithTthe Black Spirits” (featuring tight drumming & percussion with dramatic orchestral accompaniment), “L.A. Nights” (highlighted by a pulsating rhythm and Joe Walsh on guitar & scat vocals) and “Food For Your Soul” (orchestral big band swing with a killer drum solo). The two group pieces are among their best: a chugging shuffle cover of the Aaron Copland classical piece “Fanfare For The Common Man” and the 13-minute orchestral prog masterpiece, “Pirates.” Works Volume 1 was not their most cohesive record but it was never meant to be. That’s one of its many charms.

 

Artist: CAT STEVENS
Album: IZITSO

Best known for his unique brand of acoustic-based songwriting, Cat Stevens had previously incorporated modern synthesizers into his music for albums like Foreigner and Numbers, but it wasn’t until his tenth album (and eighth since he became the bearded troubadour that scored numerous hits throughout the ‘70s), Izitso, that they became such an integral part of his sound. Without his longtime sidekick, guitarist Alun Davies, he & frequent collaborator, keyboardist/arranger Jean Roussel, along with a long list of top-notch studio musicians, crafted a set of songs that are “classic Cat Stevens” with an added contemporary sheen. “(Remember The Days Of The) Old Schoolyard,” his final Top 40 hit, is bouncy synth-pop with nostalgic lyrics. I love the guitar riff, funky groove & tight rhythm section on “Killin’ Time” and the whimsical instrumental “Kypros,” with its slightly Latin rhythm and Greek melodies. It’s nice to hear him let loose, lyrically speaking, on “Bonfire,” a peppy & jazzy song about sex. He shifts from ballad to driving pop (and back again) on the autobiographical “(I Never Wanted) To Be A Star.” The midtempo pop tune “Sweet Jamaica,” with hints of Elton John and Philly Soul, is lightweight in the best possible way. Izitso seems to be an overlooked album in his discography, likely because it arrived a couple of years after his multi-platinum Greatest Hits and a year prior to his self-imposed exile from the world of Western pop music. It deserves a much higher profile.

 

Artist: MICHAEL FRANKS
Album: SLEEPING GYPSY

I’ve been a jazz fan since high school but for some reason I’ve never really enjoyed jazz vocalists, with a few notable exceptions. It might be the same reason I love classical music but don’t have an affinity for opera singing. I guess with jazz it’s usually about the music for me, so when I find a jazz singer I like it means they offer something unique to my ears. One such singer is Michael Franks, whose warm & super-smooth voice has been paired with some amazing musicians for more than 40 years. It’s his work from the ‘70s & ‘80s which has made the biggest impact on me, after being introduced to his music by the record store manager who hired me for my first job in the music industry back in 1983 (for which I’ll forever be in her debt). Sleeping Gypsy, his third album (and second for a major label), finds him working with three members of the legendary (Jazz) Crusaders, guitarist Larry Carlton, sax player Wilton Felder & keyboardist Joe Sample, along with sax greats David Sanborn & Michael Brecker, one-time Joni Mitchell drummer John Guerin and several Latin musicians, all of whom provide a solid musical canvas for Franks’ vocals as well as impressive soloing whenever the songs call for it. The album opens with what I consider the definitive Michael Franks song, “The Lady Wants To Know,” which perfectly evokes the laid-back sound of the swinging ‘70s (or at least how I pictured that era when I was in my pre-teens). I absolutely love the refrain of “Daddy’s just like Coltrane, baby’s just like Miles.” There are several other notable tracks here, including “I Really Hope It’s You” (light jazz-pop with great self-harmonies & understated guitar soloing), “B’wana-He No Home” (a cool vocal melody and lovely piano & sax solos), “Don’t Be Blue” (peppy with tasteful electric piano & sax) and “Antonio’s Song (The Rainbow)” (a lush Latin ballad with sweeping strings which is likely a tribute to one of his heroes, Antonio Carlos Jobim). There’s an excellent 2-CD Michael Franks compilation on the market, which would be the ideal introduction for most newcomers, but if you want to check out some of his individual albums you’ll be well-served by starting with Sleeping Gypsy.

 

Artist: AL DI MEOLA
Album: ELEGANT GYPSY

Al DiMeola was still a teenager when he joined Chick Corea’s Return To Forever, one of my favorite jazz-fusion groups, and his lightning-fast guitar runs had the jaws of fellow guitarists & other musicians hitting the floor. After three albums with RTF he struck out on his own, and his second solo album, Elegant Gypsy, is generally acknowledged as an essential fusion release. What could have been a shred-fest is instead a diverse collection of melodic instrumental music that draws on jazz, rock & Latin styles. Of course there’s plenty of awe-inspiring musicianship, with contributions from keyboardists Barry Miles & Jan Hammer, drummers Lenny White (his RTF bandmate) & Steve Gadd, bassist Anthony Jackson and percussionist Mingo Lewis. Album opener “Flight Over Rio,” written by Lewis (the only song not composed by DiMeola), shifts from the synth-laden subdued rhythm of the first 90 seconds to Santana-esque Latin jazz-rock with searing guitar. “Mediterranean Sundance” is a beautiful Flamenco-style Spanish guitar duet with Paco de Lucia, with whom he would release the classic Friday Night In San Francisco live album four years later (joined by fellow guitar legend John McLaughlin). “Race With Devil On Spanish Highway” is fast-paced with Latin accents, super-fast guitar runs, a crunchy bass-and-guitar riff and some more peaceful passages. At more than 9 minutes, album closer “Elegant Gypsy Suite” is the longest track, a showcase for amazing playing from everyone and an impressive arrangement. I’m far from an expert on DiMeola’s complete catalog as I only own a handful of his other albums, but I strongly recommend Elegant Gypsy…his biggest seller and only Gold record…for anyone checking him out for the first time.

It has been an absolute thrill for me to revisit so many great albums from 1977 throughout the year, and it seems like I’m not alone in thinking that it was an incredible 12 months of music. Finding the time to write about these records each week hasn’t been easy, as 2017 was a (self-imposed) challenging year for me, but I set a goal in January to cover as many of these releases as I could, and I’m proud…and amazed…that I somehow managed to discuss 63 albums over the course of 45 posts. Thank you to everyone who stopped by and shared their thoughts during this series. I love the conversations we’ve had, and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on these final selections. Still not sure what’s in store for next year so for now I’ll bask in the glow of a job (well?) done.

    Heart – Little Queen

    There is a lot of 1970s music which is lightweight compared to stuff like Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull, etc (so I didn’t listen to it at the time), but a huge amount of fun. This was the pop music of the time: Journey, Boston, Foreigner, to a lesser extent Styx (who apparently have a new concept album about the colonization of Mars which is supposed to be really good—wonders never cease), REO Speedwagon, etc. Probably none capture that spirit of the age better than Heart. Here is one of my all-time favourite music videos:

    Note how they all have the same hairdo. What was your do like back then, Rich?

    May the Force be with you. 🙂

    • Hi Phillip. I like/love a lot of music from the bands you mentioned (with the exception of REO Speedwagon, who never did it for me). I’ve seen that Heart performance from Midnight Special. A friend bought me a multi-DVD set from that show a few years ago and that’s one of the amazing performances included.

      My hair was always very curly or wavy, and very thick, so I could never grow it long (although I tried at one point & it looked ridiculous).

      The new Styx album is quite fantastic. I know a lot of people don’t take them seriously (if they ever did) now that Dennis DeYoung isn’t in the band, but that’s been the case for nearly 2 decades and for those of us who accept the current lineup we’re just thrilled that Styx is still making new music. Tommy Shaw is incredible (not sure how he still sings that well), and their drummer (Todd Sucherman) is a beast.

      I take it from your last comment that you’re a Star Wars fan and will see the movie this weekend. I’m also a fan but I can wait until the crowds subside. My wife & I will probably go sometime between Christmas & New Year’s. Let me know your thoughts on the movie if you see it.

        Wrong call on Star Wars. I’ve seen most of the films, but don’t consider myself a fan. (I do consider myself a non-fanatic fan (think about it) of the original Star Trek television series.) The “Force” comment refers to the similarity between Luke Skywalker (in the 1977 film) and the bloke with the white electric guitar in the Midnight Special video. 🙂

    I like the Heart and the Steve Miller Band albums – I love The Jam and Ramones albums. I’ve always had a soft spot for Joey Ramone; he was the first musician I saw who looked like me (I didn’t have the leather jacket and Chuck Taylors, but I had better teeth)

    This has been an interesting series. Thirty Year Thursday – a lot of those albums I knew and had opinions on. More of this year’s were albums I had heard of but never heard or just knew the radio hits. Both good in different ways.

    • Glad we have some of those Honorable Mention albums in common. Joey Ramone was a one-of-a-kind performer. Even though they weren’t among my all-time favorite bands I always liked them, and I was fortunate to see them in 1980 when I was 14. Thanks for checking in during this series even though you didn’t have the same connection to those albums that you did to the 1986 releases I covered last year.

    What a lineup, Rich! Cat Stevens is a favorite and I haven’t heard of Izitso. I’m also curious about the Elegant Gypsy album. There’s so much here! I’m going to need to revisit.

    Congratulation on completing an incredible series! I don’t know how you managed to visit 63 albums this year, but I’m glad you did. I’m happy I was along for the ride. I’m looking forward to what you come up with for the new year.

    • Hi Danica. If you’re an open-minded Cat Stevens fan I think you’ll really like Izitso. Some fans only want him to do acoustic music, so the synths threw them off, but it’s all about the songs for me and there are plenty of great ones here. Would love to hear your thoughts (on that and Elegant Gypsy) if/when you check them out.

      As always, thanks for the kind words & support. I’m not sure how I managed to write as many posts and cover so many albums this year. I set a goal for myself and just kept plowing through even when free time was almost non-existent.

    From your list, I think that Trans-Europe Express and Pacific Ocean Blue deserve some attention. I’m not big on The Ramones, but those are significant albums too. I have a lot of time for Heavy Weather too.

    Obviously you hit lots of big ones, but some others l like:
    – Brian Eno – Before and After Science – major classic in my book
    – John Martyn – One World
    – Townes Van Zandt – Live at the Old Quarter
    – Jimmy Webb – El Mirage
    – Fela Kuti – Zombie
    – two Iggy Pop albums
    – The Congos – Heart of the Congos
    – Parliament – Funkentelechy vs. the Placebo Syndrome
    – The Saints – (I’m) Stranded
    – Wire – Pink Flag

    • Very pleased that we have some of those Honorable Mentions in common. Thanks for sharing your list of the albums from ’77 that I overlooked. I have & like four of them (Martyn, Van Zandt, Webb and Kuti) but they weren’t quite as high on my list as the albums I mentioned, although I should have included them in my Honorable Mentions list. Actually, that Fela Kuti album is one of my favorites in his discography. That was a major oversight on my part. I need to get more ’70s Eno. I only have Here Come The Warm Jets and it’s amazing. I also have a couple of later releases but I know that’s a glaring hole in my collection. The Congos has also been on my “to check out” list for a while. Will do so soon.

    I think Works 1 was a huge misstep. One they never really recovered from. After a 4 year hiatus, I question putting out a double album with three solo sides and only 2 full band songs. It’s spotty at best. They could’ve had a very strong album had they combined the best tracks from Works 1&2.

    My only exposure to Di Meola is the Friday Night In San Francisco album you mentioned, which is jaw-dropping. Listening to this track, I’m sure Trevor Rabin is a fan.

    I like my Cat Stevens without the ‘contemporary sheen,’ 🙂

    The only others I would add are The Clash’s debut – I know you don’t love the punk, but I believe this record is as good as the Pistol’s, if not better, and equally important, (interesting that you included The Jam and The Ramones, though). And Brian Eno’s Before And After Science seems a glaring omission.

    Great job, Rich. As usual. Looking forward to whatever you have in store for the future.

    Like

    • Hi Kevin. I felt the same way about Works Volume 1 for a long time. I still don’t love it as much as the first four albums but now I appreciate it as its own entity. I wish they had returned to their earlier “electric prog” sound after this, but clearly they had moved on. It certainly marked the beginning of the end. I agree that a combo of both Works volumes might have made for a more cohesive listen.

      Hadn’t thought about a DiMeola-Rabin connection but I can definitely hear it now that you mentioned it.

      Sorry this Cat Stevens album isn’t your thing. I think the songs are uniformly excellent and I like the contemporary sheen, but I also understand why some fans don’t feel the same way. I wonder if he did scaled back versions of those songs in concert back in the day.

      I knew a lot of people would suggest The Clash’s debut. I’ve listened to it several times over the years and I like it, but they’re just not a top-tier band for me. I can’t (and won’t) argue about their importance, thought.

      Thanks for the feedback & support. It’s always a pleasure comparing notes with you.

    Well Rich, I’ve held off until the end of the weekend to leave my comment as I realise this will be my last visit to FYF and that makes me sad. I read your Thirty Year Thursday posts last year but when I saw this year it was going to be about the music of 1977 it was a no-brainer that I would join in the discussion, sometimes leaving one of my little anecdotes about the times! All of us who blog about music approach it from a slightly different angle and you are the very knowledgeable music critic, others are purely enthusiasts who want to share the favourites from their catalogue and then there’s people like me who simply write about music and memories. The great thing is that we have this place where there is no negativity, just a shared love of the music.

    As for this weeks picks, the one I would have enjoyed most back in the day is ELP – Having just listened to the full version in the clip it truly was an epic piece of music and very different from the one heard on the radio. Greg Lake died this week last year so I featured his Christmas song back then. Where does the time go? As for Cat Stevens I always liked his music (and his dark curls and beard) although this was a bit of a different album for him and very Starsky and Hutch-like at the beginning I thought!

    As for the other albums listed, the ones I would have been most likely to listen to are The Jam, Linda Ronstadt, Steve Winwood, Kraftwerk and Be Bop Deluxe – An eclectic mix indeed.

    Well done then on 45 posts on the music of 1977 – You deserve a rest now in order to enjoy that new music room. Hopefully you will pop up now and again with something new which will be nice. You are always welcome over at my place so don’t be a stranger.

    Forty Year Friday – You will be missed.

    • Hi Alyson. Sorry you’re feeling a little sad about the end of FYF. I appreciate your feedback throughout the year. You’ve added so much to this series. It’s funny that you describe me as a music critic, because I don’t think of myself that way. I’m just an enthusiastic music lover with a ridiculously large record collection (well, “ridiculously large” to the general public and not necessarily my fellow music obsessives) who has enjoyed revisiting the catalogs of mostly-underplayed artists and sharing my thoughts on them so I can start conversations with other fans. I tend to think of critics as taking a more clinical approach, like they’re journalists. This is not to say your assessment is incorrect, and I’m not offended by it, but it’s funny how people can see you a lot differently than you see yourself.

      Still can’t believe we lost both Lake & Emerson last year. I was fortunate to see Carl Palmer perform as part of “Yestival” this past summer. Glad he is carrying on ELP’s music, and doing it quite impressively.

      Nice to see we have a wide array of albums in common from the Honorable Mentions list. Wish I could have covered them in more detail, but perhaps I’ll get to them at some point in the future.

      I’m happy to report that the music room is now fully functional, as of yesterday evening. A friend who does A/V and “integration” wiring (whatever that is) for a living helped me with some of the finishing touches. Now I just need to find some time to catch up on all the music I’ve been accumulating the past few years. I will likely write about that in a post here next month before taking am extended break.

      Forty Year Friday thanks you for your service. 😀

      Oh, and I will definitely be visiting your blog on a regular basis. Just because I won’t be generating content for a while doesn’t mean I won’t be connecting with my blogging friends.

    Hi there – Just a little bit sad at the moment because it seems lots of things are all coming to an end at the same time (my job, friendships with colleagues, my mum living on her own, even tv shows) so the last FYF post was just another reminder that nothing lasts forever. I seem to remember you saying that you like a bit of melancholy however so you would probably thrive on such things!

    As for the music critic tag, that probably wasn’t the right description but it just seems that all the blogs I follow have a slightly different vibe to them. An enthusiastic music-lover sharing their “ridiculously large collection” is probably more accurate as you say.

    Will be interesting to see what (if you’re not too distracted by the music room) you come up with next year. I am going to try and keep going but it is one of these places where you kind of need to be “all in” or “all out” – My posts sometimes take a fair bit of time to put together and I now love joining in the various discussions so a fairly intense hobby. Think I’m going to have to find a way of shortening my posts without losing the whole music/memories theme. As I said you are always welcome and I might even copy your idea of alliteration for a new series – Sixty Year Saturday anyone? Maybe not, but a Fifty Year Friday could be a possibility (Twenty Year Tuesday just a bit too recent for me!).

    Has been a joy dropping by every week and just hope the anecdotes weren’t too embarrassing. Liked the one about Michael Rennie/The Day The Earth Stood Still which led us on to talk about Klaatu. Will have to feature them at some point!

    • Sorry you have so many transitions going on at the same time. That can be stressful & sad. To cheer me up during times like that I just think of the lyrics from Pink Floyd’s “Time”:
      And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
      Racing around to come up behind you again
      The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older
      Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

      That should either make you smile or seek out a razor blade 😛

      There’s another blogger (zunpoems) who’s been doing a Fifty Year Friday series this year. He was nice enough to check to make sure I wasn’t offended by him borrowing my alliterative series title, which of course I wasn’t. It’s a big internet with plenty of space to cover similar but different ground. Would love for you to revisit 1968 next year.

      I’m still figuring out my blogging plans for 2018 & beyond. I can’t imagine ever shutting down this operation but it will be nice to stay away for a while. I think I once went about 6 months without a blog post and the world kept spinning. I still have a 2017 “Year In Review” post to complete so you haven’t heard the last of me yet. I would like to get back to my favorite drummers series. At one point I started putting together post #4, and even had the photos ready, but life responsibilities and Forty Year Friday got in the way.

      There’s no need to ever apologize for your anecdotes. They are far from embarrassing and always make me smile.

        Like the idea of a Fifty Year retrospective as ’68 was a good year and one I’m not overly familiar with so still new discoveries to be made – We’ll see.

        Forgot that you’ll be doing a review of the year – Will look out for that. As you say the world doesn’t stop spinning if we have a break but there is a sense that if we lose the momentum we might not get started again. An addictive hobby indeed!
