Who Run

Went running.

The North Face trail running shoe -- good for use in the Appalachian Mountains ... but seriously, they are rather small compared to the Rocky Mountains ... Sierra Nevada are sweet, too.  Would definitely use 'em in the Alps, that's for sure.  One thing's for sure -- Jerry Garcia or Bob Weir or Phil Lesh or Blaise Compaoré probably never went running in Liberia, Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, Pyongyang, 평양 직할시 조선민주주의인민공화국 平壤直轄市 朝鮮民主主義人民共和國, Türkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Кыргызстан, Киргизия, Uzbekistan, O'zbekiston, Ўзбекистон Республикаси, Tajikistan, Тоҷикистон.  Probably the same with Brent Mydland.  At least that's my gut feeling.  I could be wrong.  I mean, there were a lot of drugs at Grateful Dead shows and the good Lord above, He knows I did my share!
Tuesday Late Morning Run: 24 minutes 37 sec
+ 27 seconds
Days Since My Last Run: 4

° - bright and sunny

10 days, 2 runs. I've gotta do better than that. Pretty good run, though, and I'm looking forward to hopefully next run getting back to 25 minutes. I really, really, really wanna get to 30 minutes per run, man. One day. Probably, if I set out to, I could accomplish 30 minutes later today! But I just don't want to push it. When I had that stress fracture in my right tibia almost two years ago, that really messed up my head, sort of... I'm just nearly frightened to death of having something bad like that happen again. Being scared isn't how I want to be but then again not being able to run or hike for 3 or 4 months? No way. No f'in' way. So I'm not pushing it. Almost 25 minutes isn't pushing it and I feel great afterward. I'm ready for my next run!

Wow. There's a lot of great music here. The bonus music on disc 2 is nice but the original album alone has a lot of great songs on it. A few I don't care too much for but even those are okay. Roger Daltrey's voice is a lot different in 1965 than later Who music that I'm more familiar with. It's gravely kinda and on a few songs he almost sounds like Mick Jagger.

The first song put me off a little. Out In The Street doesn't do much for me but it has some cool guitar from Pete Townshend. That helps but it just doesn't stand up to what follows. Song two, I Don't Mind, portrays the blues side of the band. Oh, man, it's so good. My Generation, of course, is a classic. One thing about it is, even though I've heard it around 1,500 times in my life, I never really noticed the great bass work from John Entwistle. He shines in so many songs as does Keith Moon on drums. Like My Generation, I've heard The Kids Are Alright a thousand times but I've never sat and listened to it like I am doing today and like I have several times over the past few days. Many of these songs have some nice, albeit not very upfront piano work from extended Grateful Dead family member Nicky Hopkins. He's especially prominent in I'm A Man. Not quite Bruce Hornsby-like but nice none-the-less. Perhaps my favorite song on the album is the instrumental The Ox. What a great driving force this four minutes of music is.

Disc 2, even starting with Daddy Rolling Stone to close out the original My Generation release, is quite Beatles-ish especially Shout And Shimmy. And then there's Motown with Heat Wave. What an odd thing to hear from this band. They were so different in 1965, at least here on their debut. Apparently the album was somewhat dismissed by the band as not really sounding like how The Who sounded on stage.

In any case, this is one of my new favorite albums. I don't why it took me so damn long to listen to it. Hey, better late than never!

It ain't Otis Day and the Knights, but thanks for the video.

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
