Hey folks, it’s time to bring you some new Love That Album podcasting for 2016.
We’re starting off with episode 23 of Eric Reanimator’s Love That Album – The Compilation Edition. In the last couple of weeks, rock music has lost (at least) three iconic rock music figures. Stevie Wright of The Easybeats, David Bowie (who did a cracking version of “Friday On My Mind”), and Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister. Eric starts this episode discussing two facets to Lemmy’s career. First, he discusses Lemmy’s first important band Hawkwind and their live album “Space Ritual” before moving onto the more iconic Motorhead live album “No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith”.
Then, he discusses a compilation of a very different artist, producer Joe Meek. He created a hit for the Tornados with “Telstar”, but as the compilation “The Alchemist Of Pop - Home Made Hits & Rarities 1959-1966” shows, he produced a lot of hits with his very distinctive style of heavy reverb and sped up sounds. Eric discusses the man and this compilation.
