The history of music (indeed, the history of humankind) is littered with tales of poor behaviour. It can range from stories of murder, molestation and drugs, to reports of every-day obnoxiousness. Welcome to episode 138 of Love That Album Podcast. As music fans, we make conscious decisions to either overlook or take to heart the behaviour of those we put on a pedestal for their art. We decide whether to separate the art from the ...

How do you approach the music of John Cale? He supposedly butted heads with Lou Reed in the Velvet Underground for being too experimental....the creator of Metal Machine Music didn't like that Cale was too experimental!!!! Welcome to episode 137 of Love That Album podcast. I am joined by my partner from the See Hear podcast, Bernard Stickwell and first time guest and music-head Fnord Buissant (aka Doug to his family). The cen...

The story of English rock music in the 1960s often revolves around some mates meeting up and bonding over a love of blues music or wanting to be the next Beatles. Then there's Fairport Convention. Welcome to episode 136 of Love That Album podcast. Fairport Convention assembled around 1966 and rehearsed in the same neighbourhood as another band of Muswell Hillbillies. The line-up has changed over the years, but the mission h...

Pop music has had its share of bands with siblings: Gallaghers, Finns, Carpenters, Davies, Wilsons (some with heart and some with surf), Isleys, Warhursts…..   Then there’s the Mael men!!!!!   Welcome to episode 135 of Love That Album podcast.   Sparks, (ostensibly, Ron and Russell Mael) are that rare beast that are hugely identifiable despite having changed styles (and record companies) several times. By the time they released alb...

When we think of music coming out of England in the 1960s, it's often in relation to the Mersey Beat, psychedelia, prog rock, or The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. England was also going through a folk music revival in a different way to the American one in the early sixties thanks to a number of artists who saw fit to combine the traditional songs of generations gone with a contemporary approach. Welcome to episode 134 of Love That ...

Music fans generally agree that the experience of seeing musicians perform live can be the greatest experience music can offer. The way the members of an orchestra or a band can play off each other and feed off an audience's enthusiasm often results in an experience one can remember for life. The problem is that all too often that energy doesn't get translated as a recording....the moment has been and gone, and we're l...

Back in late 2015 for episode 84 of LTA, I was joined by my friend and fellow jazzhead, Terry Frost to discuss 6 jazz albums we dug (I did it again for episode 95 in 2016 by myself – not as much fun).   Episode 131 is now available to groove on. Terry joins me again as we stroke our goatees, snap our fingers and say things like “groovy daddy-o”……well, at least the part that's true is that Terry joins me again on the podcast to ...

It's December, so as per annual tradition at LTA Headquarters, the episodes are dedicated to discussing the best albums we heard for the first time over the year, regardless of when they were released. I break this up into two episodes. This first one will feature me speaking to music journalists and authors Jeff Jenkins and Ian McFarlane. As well as first time listens, we also venture into musicians we lost this year, and some...

It's the end of an era for Love That Album. Welcome to episode 62 of Love That Album: The Compilation Edition – the final episode of the LTA offshoot. Back in 2012, Eric Peterson (aka Reanimator) discovered the main show and of his own volition, sent me audio feedback about the bands that meant a lot to him. I asked if he wanted to continue to send audio feedback as produced segments to continue in the body of the podcast about...

F. Scott Fitzgerald famously once said, “There are no second acts in American lives”. Just as well that Marianne Faithfull is British. Welcome to episode 128 of Love That Album podcast. Marianne started out as a folk singer in the mid 60s. She was signed to Decca Records, home to the Rolling Stones. Her first single was the first song Keith Richards and Mick Jagger wrote, As Tears Go By. For a brief time, she was a major success ...

Welcome to episode 61 of Love That Album: The Compilation Edition. In Eric's penultimate episode of the Compilation Edition, he talks about King's X and their role in his early twenties.. King's X, a Texas based melodic hard rock group with flourishes of soul, classic rock, funk, and alt rock were a bridge between the metal of the 80s and the alternative rock of the 90s. They had a couple of popular singles along the ...

How do you classify a band that has been known to have multiple time signature changes and key modulations in one song, yet can write really catchy pop melodies? England's Cardiacs certainly fit this description, yet they defy any easy one-size-fits-all description. I'm joined by my son Max Bursztynski to talk about Cardiacs' 1996 double album Sing To G-d released some 20 years into their career. The band may not have t...

Welcome to episode 60 of Love That Album: The Compilation Edition. Once upon a time, in the eighties,there were bands that were trying to warn us about what was to come. This time around Eric Reanimator talks about one of them. Queensryche, a progressive metal band who in 1990 hit the right spot between pop metal and alternative before falling on the hair metal side of fence. Did they deserve better? Do they hold up? Tune in and se...

As lovers of pop and rock music, we probably all have favourite bands or performers from the Sixties era: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, The Who, The Beach Boys etc etc. Wonderful acts all worthy of our attention. There's a problem....and it's not ubiquity. In focusing on these bands (and other iconic names), there's so many great musical acts who we never paid attention to or have completely forgotten abou...

We here at LTA HQ don’t want any favouritism amongst your podcast choices. We just want to be treated right…or rite. Welcome to episode 125 of Love That Album Podcast. I’m joined by host of the brilliant Supporting Characters podcast Bill Ackerman to talk about singer, guitarist and songwriter Terry Reid with a focus to his 1976 album Seed of Memory.

As the Northern Hemisphere enter the humid wasteland that is the end of July into August, it is time once again for a round up of recent country artists to listen to while drinking beer at dusk. Eric has his recent tattooed, too fast for love, Outlaw Country dames who say what they think, talk about what they see going on and swear. He'd really like to buy any of these women a beer and let them loose on the stories of their mus...

Hello….it’s Love That Album. Todd Rundgren must have shares in a millinery, because he wears a lot of hats. Multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, video producer, (it can be argued) comedian…….He doesn’t do anything by half-measures. Rundgren started his recording career with rock group Nazz in the late 60s, then branched out to work as a producer for Bearsville Records when he found out he was unhappy with other producers’ w...

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
