@ttyymmnn turns out it was historically almost never used.
I just thought a set of playground chimes that played from B to b seemed very odd indeed. I was trying to come up with a melody that would use them to some kind of hilarious end, like Happy Birthday in Locrian but it’s the wrong range (an octave above scale 5 or Sol)
@vondon302 I used to play drums in a band with a fellow that self described as an old hippie. He was a big Neil Young fan, and we covered "For What It's Worth" at his request. This was late '90s, and I haven't spoken to him in almost 20 years. I'd love to hear his thoughts on this.
@ttyymmnn I have always loved it myself- the improv nature of it comes from the jazz side, of course. It's sort of an odd mix of jazz and classical, so it's bound to offend lovers of either one, I suspect.
To me, it has a certain, busy, American city of the era feel to it, that really gets me. I was also a Chicago resident and United frequent flyer during the heyday of United's use of it, so that's definitely part of the charm to me. Though I bought a CD of it before I started traveling.
I was listening to these as they slowly released them. I like both versions. The originals are kind of raw, grungy which does fit the album. It's nice to listen to the cleaned up versions though, just feels more modern.
