      Maria Callas, 40, "Vissi d'Arte" at Covent Garden; 22 January 1964. If I'm going to experience life as a woman, it might as well be as the woman.

      David Vanian, 20, "New Rose" at Brighton; 15 June 1977. The purest stupidest most violent energy of punk.

      Muddy Waters, 47, "Hoochie Coochie Man" at the Newport Jazz Festival; 3 July 1960. Suffering, wisdom, triumph, and the deepest blues, all with a wry smile.

                  Screw their adolescent libertarianism and their asinine regressive junior high school politics. I am a hardcore Marxist here to tell you that Rush was fantastic and Neil Peart was a god.

                  May flights of angels sing thee to thy rest, Neil. You accomplished 1000x what I ever will.

                  If any of you can stand almost 20 minutes of the boys just doing their thing with zero attention to commercial appeal, Cygnus is where I would like them to end up. Well, that and Warren Cromartie Secondary School:

                    https://ultimateclassicrock.com/beat...p-vinyl-album/

                    Nielsen Music's report on U.S. music sales in the '10s confirmed the Beatles' Abbey Road as the best-selling vinyl album of the decade.

                    Year-to-year album sales increased nearly 15 percent in 2019, up to 18.8 million sold. But new releases made up only 33 percent of total vinyl sales last year, with catalog LPs accounting for the rest.

                    The decade's Top 10 is likewise dominated by older releases, including classic vinyl from Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac and Miles Davis.

                    The Beatles bested Floyd's second-place finisher The Dark Side of the Moon by nearly 200,000 units. Only one original album from the '10s appears in the decade-ending tally: Lana Del Rey's Born to Die. The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack, though issued in 2014, is comprised of songs from the '60s and '70s.

                    Abbey Road returned as an expanded box-set reissue last year in commemoration of its 50th year. That helped the Beatles to the No. 1 spot in U.S. vinyl sales for 2019; Billie Eilish's When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? was runner up.

                    The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper Lonely Hearts Club Band, which also saw a massive reissue in 2017, made the decade-ending Top 10, as well. Queen rode interest in the Bohemian Rhapsody biopic to two spots on the year-end sales list: Greatest Hits 1 finished third in 2019, and the film's soundtrack ended up at No. 5.

                    Top 10 Best-Selling Vinyl Albums of the '10s

                    1. The Beatles – Abbey Road (558,000)
                    2. Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon (376,00)
                    3. Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 (367,000)
                    4. Bob Marley and the Wailers – Legend (364,000)
                    5. Amy Winehouse – Back to Black (351,000)
                    6. Michael Jackson – Thriller (334,000)
                    7. The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (313,000)
                    8. Fleetwood Mac – Rumours (304,000)
                    9. Miles Davis – Kind of Blue (286,000)
                    10. Lana Del Rey – Born to Die (283,000)

                              I'd not heard this before. Very nice.

                              The discussion with dx got me thinking about Steely Dan as an example of a band I hated in my teens, 20s, and 30s. In my 40s I ran into the story of how they put their music together and how (insanely) meticulous every note and phrase is. It's an example of music which I came to love by studying it. It reminds me of the quote, "Wagner is better than it sounds." Music is not just first listen: you like it or you don't. Like other tastes it changes over time and with context.

                              When this came out I dismissed it as muzak. Now I think it's one of the finest compositions in rock history, with "depths of no bottom."

                                Music, in a technical sense, probably could be perfect, and I'm sure there are some examples out there. However, because it IS art, people's opinions vary widely. For the most part, I'm not a fan of classical music overall, but I can appreciate the talent that is there. On the flipside, a LOT of people hate punk or rap, even though I am a huge fan.

                                Heck, people trash disco all the time, yet that was the precursor to techno, or the snobbish term "Electronic Dance Music," aka EDM that has been the rage for the last few years.
                                Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.
