Buried Treasures – Discover New Music – 6/15/10
Good morning! Welcome to a new addition to All Knowing Force that will be called Buried Treasures. Since I’m always asked what I’m listening to, now you’ll know.
This is the second edition of hopefully many, many more. I’m going to try and do these in themes without compromising the integrity of the Buried Treasure posts, but we’ll see how that goes. For instances, songs are love, death, betrayal, San Francisco, and so on and so forth.
The Pixies – Bossanova – Velouria – 1990 (Click -> to check out all Pixies tracks you can download and keep with a FREE TRIAL of eMusic)
I am not a fan of this video. I’m sure they were going for some sort of visual metaphor. After all, this is The Pixies.
Anthrax – Volume 8: The Threat Is Real – Inside Out – 1998
The late Dimebag Darrell plays lead guitar on this track that absolutely slams. This song must be played at a near-deafening level for maximum listening pleasure. Unfortunately, this album went large unnoticed due to lack of promotion by their label.
Rolling Stones – Sticky Fingers – Moonlight Mile – 1971
The Stones have a collection of hits a mile long. This is one of their best, but largely forgotten ballads. I can’t believe this song is almost 40 years old.
Ozzy Osbourne – Blizzard of Ozz – Goodbye To Romance – 1980
This live version trumps the studio recording in every way. You can get this live version on his 1993 live release called Live & Loud. Unfortunately, this track was buried on this album because of his best known hit – you might know – a song called “Crazy Train.”
