People are capable of being selective with whatever genre they choose to listen to as well, ie one doesnt have to just listen to pop music, one can listen to contemporary music (ie Bob Dylan), but someone else can listen to jazz or big band etc etc

but yeh, R.E.M.: They "pulled the plug" but they could have "gone into hiatus" and just be "forgotten" or "faded into the obscurity they came from", which would probably have been their preferred style if they ultimately had a say
What?

I found a copy of this for sale online and I just received a shipment notification, so it seems they actually have it in stock. Should have it in a week.

I got the Peter Buck solo album on vinyl earlier this week. I've listened to it 4 or 5 times now. It's actually quite good. He admittedly doesn't have the greatest singing voice, but his blues-rock guitar work more than makes up for it. Besides, there are guest vocalists on several tracks.

Some Kind Of Velvet Sunday Morning is a standout track for me.

I wonder if it's also a reference to the Lee Hazlewood song "Some Velvet Morning".

I had to check this out.

Lee Hazlewood - Nancy Sinatra, Some Velvet Morning - YouTube

It is a male/female duet, but otherwise I don't see much similarity.
