Today on the VE....

With holiday season approaching, the most stressful time of the year is upon us. Feeling a bit--edgy. An hour or vinyl track sto work off your frustrations to. I'm PC and this is the VE....

The Knack: Frustrated
The Everly Brothers: Problems
Graham Parker: Stupefaction

Graham Parker, The Everly Brothers and The Knack, to get this Vinyl Experience ...and the knots in your neck....worked out andn stress free. Animal Colllective's current LP is Centipede...this song, Mercury Man deals with how the balancing act of life can be as impossible as keeping a ball of mercury still....

Animal Collective: Mercury Man
Pretenders: Time The Avenger
Aretha Franklin: Satisfaction

The opposite of frustration---satisfaction....but even the Queen of Soul ain't gettin' any. The Rolling Stones classic, perhaps the greatest frustration song ever, from the Atlantic album Aretha Arrives. Also The Pretenders with "Time The Avenger, " from the MFSL reissue of Learning To Crawl....Pete Townshend now, the original version of a song that the Who would put out as a single...a procrastinators anthem...."Let's See Action!"

Pete Townshend: Let's See Action
Buddy Miles: Dreams (I'll Never See)
George Harrison: Wah Wah

Frustration grips the VE today, with George Harrison feeling it in his last yeears with The Beatles, and letting it all out on All Things Must Pass. Buddly Miles from Them Changes and a seldom heard version of the Allman Brothers great modern blues, "Dreams I'll Never See." The new LP by The Mountain Goats is rich and reewarding...not frustrating at all. It's Trancendental Youth, and from it, a song that works out some issues called "Cry For Judas."

Mountain Goats: Cry For Judas
Green Day: Welcome To Paradise
Bob Dylan: Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues

Dylan throws inthe towel on "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues," from teh Mono Box reissue of Highway 61 Revisited. Green Day perfected the frustration anthems of the 90s, such as "Longview" and "Basket Case," but it all started with that little letter to mom , "Welcome To Paradise," from Kerplunk. ANd finally, another from the "be careful what yuou wisih for" file......

Peggy Lee: Is That All There Is

And that's the VE. Peggy Lee's 1969 hit of the jaded Lieber & Stoller song "Is That All There Is." Feeling relieved?! I hope this VE worked out some issues for you too!
