Carl’s living room is the latest Gulls Window Circus series, and the loosest – join me as I just plain listen to records with the recorder on. This week is all vinyl, all LP tracks. It starts with a track from Raybeat’s unappreciated ‘The Lost Philip Glass Sessions’. NYC band Sorrows’ ‘Love Too Late​’ LP, which THEY didn’t appreciate, gets re-recorded 40 years later and redeemed as ‘Love Too Late​.​.​. The Real Album’. Mark Wirtz in his 1970 band The Matchmakers bring goodness, as do Crazy Horse, with the humbly titled but incredible sounding ‘Your Song.’ That track gets followed by a Somerville MA contemporary artist that nails the Crazy Horse spirit – Doug Tuttle. Other Boston area treasures [Turbines, Richie Parsons] bring joy. 80’s NYC bands Steel Tips, Glorious Strangers and Details At Eleven bring me back to my childhood, as does the live Cure track from their first NYC appearance ‘Live At Hurrah, NYC, 15 April 1980’. Also bringing me back, though not as far, is the Versus ‘Let’s Electrify!’ reissue which we hear a track from.
