CN211:

I am rather puzzled by your choice of Led Zeppelin.

What innovation can you trace back to their first lp?

That lp is just a whole lot of (uncredited) copying - well 4 or 5 copyings.

The first Zep album took blues to a new and heavier level and was a big influence on Black Sabbath and the birth of heavy metal.

And northwest of Pegasus

A curve ball for y'all.

Glenn Gould, The Goldberg Variations (1955)

If you only own one 'classical' recording, let it be this one.

What about the 1981 version? I think I prefer it, marginally. it's more...laid back, but 'deeper.' It's difficult to put into words. It just seems more "whole" to me. :think:

Perhaps we like the one when Could was closer to our own ages? :dance: ;)

I have to say, I love them both, equally. It's such an interesting comparison because both are absolutely and distinctly Gould - in sound/piano technique/recording ambience/etc. Maybe for me it's a mood thing - 55 is bouncy energetic, 81 is more reflective.

I posted 55 because of requirements of this thread. Loads and loads about the wacky Gould all over the web, including how he influenced individuals/music/thought on music/and much more, but less known and just as important are how he influenced the practice of studio recording, tape splicing etc. which will have indirected most if not all studio recordings of anything ever since. A true pioneer.

(Before anyone jumps in, I'm not saying he invented the studio/splicing etc., just that he helped lead it down a more artful road)

The man was just a genius. And an incredible pianist. One of the very greatest.

It's still a bit odd when he sings along in the background - but Keith Jarrett does that as well.
