In my ongoing process of trying to get my CD room in order, I’m done through the G’s.
Galactic, Grateful Dead, Jeff Golub, Graham Central Station and the Goop are a few of the CDs I put on the shelves.
So, if you want to get technical, the bands should have been listed in alphabetical order — Galactic, Graham Central Station, Grateful Dead, Jeff Golub and the Goop.
Anyway, reorganizing the CDs have unearthed some gems. In my last blog entry, I mentioned rediscovering Jeff Buckley’s “Grace.”
Well, here’s another of my favorites I had forgotten: Geggy Tah’s 1996 CD, “Sacred Cow.” It features the single “Whoever You Are,” which was played on MTV in the day and eventually became a commercial jingle for Mercedes Benz.
I caught Geggy Tah at the now-defunct Zephyr club back in ’96 when it opened for Dread Zeppelin.
The show was lo-fi, full of energy and leaned toward the quirky side.
The band actually entered the Zephyr in a procession that included an elongated horn and snare. The musicians marched in the front doors, did a few rounds on the dance floor and then jumped on stage and played the gig of their lives.
What an awesome memory!
Anyway, I found “Sacred Cow” buried between Marvin Gaye and Gene Loves Jezebel, and set it aside to put into my iPod.
Next up, the H’s, I’s and J’s.
I wonder if I still have my Hampton Grease Band “Listen to Music to Eat” double disc.
I guess I’ll find out in a couple of days.
