BERNIE SCHWARTZ - THE WHEEL (USA PSYCH '70)

The Wheel is an excellent album, mixing hard rock, country-rock and folk-rock into something similar to Euphoria’s sole album or Neil Young’s Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere. The Euphoria duo of Wesley Watt and Bill Lincoln actually appear on this disc and one can hear Watt’s wild fuzz guitar playing on Schwartz’s epic cover of Sunshine Woman. There are also a few more ace fuzz rockers in Follow Me and a brutally intense reading of Fred Neil’s Candy Man.
Sometime after the release of the Wheel, Bernie Schwartz quit rock music to focus on writing psychology books. The Wheel is proof that there are many rare, great recordings that have not been reissued on cd. I found a near mint copy on ebay for about $25 and would recommend this lp to anyone with an interest in 60s rock.

BAJER - GOIN' THROUGH THE MOTIONS (USA COUNTRY ROCK '82)


RECORED AND MIXED AT OMEGA SOUND FORT SMITH, ARKANSAS

I am unaware of the origins of the phrase “going through the motions”, but I’m sure Islanders understand its meaning: to do things insincerely or in a cursory manner.
After a couple of sessions in the House, where we literally and metaphorically “go through the motions”, I am increasingly convinced that the origins of the term are political.
In the recent election, Islanders expressed their deep desire for real change, and I share their hope for the dawning of a new attitude in politics; one which is more collaborative, less partisan, and represents a better, more productive type of discourse. Of a House more in line with how it was originally conceived, where Members, who are first and foremost representatives of their constituents, bring forward legislation and motions, and a productive, open debate leads to the development of the best ideas to solve the many problems we face.
Instead politicians in Parliaments everywhere are often just “going through the motions”.
