Hall and Oates do what you want be what you areRock God Cred Report:

We all know the Top 40, “Hit Making Machine” that  Hall & Oates evolved into.  You name it…”Maneater” to “Out of Touch”…they are all here in this excellent 4-disc box set “Do What You Want, Be What You Are”. 

Now, the beauty of this box set comes in Disc 1 & 2 where they pull from the Atlantic Years and the early RCA albums.  These discs are loaded with “Lost Classics”, “Should Have Been Hits”, and “Philly Soul” at it’s underrated best.  They cherry pick from their early releases “Lilly (Are You Happy)” from “Whole Oats”…”Had I Known You Better” & “Abandonded Luncheonette” from the album of the same name…”It’s Uncanny” from “No Goodbyes”  “You’re Much Too Soon”  from the Todd Rundgren produced  “War Babies”…”Camellia” and a new remix of “Gino (The Manager) originally from “Daryl Hall and John Oates”…”Crazy Eyes” from “Bigger Than The Both of Us”…”I Don’t Wanna Lose You” from “Along The Red Ledge”, and finally “The Woman Comes and Goes” from “X-Static”.  These are the cuts that make this box set worthwhile.  Plenty of songs that you may not  be familiar with, but they will grab your attention when you give them a spin.  They will become new favorites.

Disc 3 has all of the radio friendly stuff…this will be good starting point for the youngsters that are just discovering the duo…so we will move on.  Disc 4 needs some of your attention.  Some nuggets fo’ sure…”Missed Opportunity”  & “Keep on Pushin’ Love” from “Ooh Yeah”, and a live version of “So Close” from “Change of Season” both tunes are right up there with their best.  Oh yessss, and a live cover of Billy Paul’s “Me & Mrs. Jones”. 

A fabulous compilation of “Hooks” & “Harmonies”…I highly reccomend  “Do What You Want, Be What You Are”…it would make a fine gift indeed!

Click here to buy Daryl Hall & John Oates “Do What You Want, Be What You Are…plus you can listen to a sampling of the tunes on this box set as well.

Click here to check Daryl Hall’s web-show “Live From Daryl’s House” …On the 15th of every month Daryl premieres a 7 episode web show featuring a collaboration with some of his friends on cover songs and classic Hall and Oates tracks. Past episodes of Live from Daryl’s House have featured a mix of well-known performers like Smokey Robinson, The Doors’ Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek, Nick Lowe, K.T. Tunstall, Todd Rundgren, Gym Class Heroes’ Travis McCoy, Chicago rock band Plain White T’s and highly touted tunesmith Diane Birch and more!  The latest epidsode will feature Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy…cool stuff.

I had to add this one because John Oates dances in the letter “O”…I still laugh when I see that part

New Hall & Oates Box Set Coming Soon “Do What You Want, Be What You Are”…Plus 2009 Tour Dates

Posted in Notable News, Record Review, Tour Dates and Info, Tunes tagged , at 12:58 pm by The Snob

Hall and Oates do what you want be what you are

Rock God Cred Report:

A new Hall & Oates compilation, 4-disc set is coming 10-6-09.  Check The info below for more details:

Pre Order Hall & Oates Box Set “Do What You Want, Be Who You Are”

Taking its title from one of their earliest singles, a song that has always summed up the duo’s individual and collective philosophy of being true to themselves, “Do What You Want, Be Who You Are”  marks the first comprehensive multi-CD, multi-label deluxe box set compilation ever assembled from their entire career’s work, four CDs containing 74 tracks (16 of them previously unreleased ).  One of the most long-awaited box sets in pop music history will be available at physical and digital retail outlets starting October 6th through RCA/Legacy, a division of Sony Music.

Of special interest will be the 16 previously unreleased tracks, which can be roughly divided between studio material and live performances.  Highlights of the live performances include:

  • “Lady Rain,” “Beanie G,” “Better Watch Your Back,” “Abandoned Luncheon­ette,” and “When The Morning Comes,” five tunes [all drawn from their Abandoned Luncheonette  (1973) and War Babies  (1974) LPs] recorded at the New Victoria Theatre in London on October 3, 1975, the first Daryl Hall and John Oates show in England, where their popularity would rival the U.S.;
  • “I Want Someone,” from 2008, the first audio ever released from the popular LiveFromDarylsHouse.com web series – one of the songs that bonded Daryl Hall and John Oates together back in the ’60s, when they realized that they both loved the tune, as first done by Detroit R&B vocal group the Mad Lads on Stax-Volt in 1966;
  • “Everytime You Go Away,” recorded 1996 in Tokyo, an explosive 10-minute version of the song that was introduced on 1980’s Voices , and became a massive #1 U.S. hit for England’s Paul Young in 1985;
  • “Starting All Over Again,” recorded at Tokyo’s Budokan in 1995, an evocative take on Mel & Tim’s 1973 soul standard (originally covered by Daryl Hall and John Oates in 1990, on Change of Season ;

Hall and Oates “Rich Girl”

Posted in Tunes tagged , , at 4:12 pm by The Snob

hall-and-oates-richIckmusic Report:

Click here to go to Ickmusic to check Hall and Oates’ 70’s gem “Rich Girl”…when we were little kids we thought it was cool when Daryl Hall would cuss “Bitch Girl.. line”…other tunes that made it on radio such as Nazareth’s “Hair of The Dog” , Pink Floyd’s “Money” did the trick too.   Don’t ask me why we thought this was the greatest back then??   Haaa! 

Can you name other tunes that slipped in light cuss words or dirty references on the am/fm radio?
