After a brief hiatus Caffeinated Frequencies is back! I’ve got some great music for you this week – opening with one of my favourite Captain Beefheart songs. As a side note, I found a music blog which takes its name from this track. I had a quick browse through the posts but haven’t listened to much of it yet. If you’re interested you can read more here
It’s Not How Far You Fall, It’s the Way You Land is an album I highly recommend you check out. Many of the tracks feature vocals from Mark Lanegan. If you love your ears you should get all of his records.
The set ends with one of my favourite versions of “Summertime”, courtesy of Janis Joplin. The track was recorded live at Woodstock and can be found on the 1999 reissue of her album I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama!.
As a point of interest; this show was recorded and put together using my MP3 player so there may be a slight reduction in quality, hopefully no one will notice.
