Phil Rudd of AC/DC "Various"
2014 was a bad year for Phil Rudd. He ran a restaurant in New Zealand called 'Phil's Place' and was ordered to pay $70,000NZ to 3 former employees for unlawful termination. That same year his first solo album HEAD JOB was released but not promoted much by the record label and it bombed. Phil was busted for conspiracy to murder a record label exec but that was later dropped. He was also busted for meth and Mary Jane and was sentenced to 8 months home confinement. That meant that he couldn't tour on the AC/DC Rock Or Bust Tour. The band itself had their own problems, having rhythm guitarist Malcolm young out of the band because of dementia which took his life in 2017.

"Changes In Latitude, Changes In Attitude," Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
It was an unlisted last track on the first side of the cassette version of Joan Jett's 1983 album 'Album'. It was a cover of the 1973 Rolling Stones song 'Star Star' aka 'Starfucker'. That dirty title word appears about 40 times in the original version, in Joan's the count goes up to 80 with chorus repeats. You couldn't get this number on the LP, only on cassette. This caused a stink in the U.S. and a few other countries. Later editions of the tape release had the song removed. However later CD versions of 'Album' has it on under the 'official' name 'Star Star'.

"Dive 2006," Benedictines Of Mary, Queen Of Apostles
I Bought the CD "Caroling At Ephesus" by this group. This familiar carol is the 24th and last track on this generally melodious and well preformed collection. The first time I played the disc, I was sure I was hearing one of more dogs barking outside at what I eventually noted to be 20 seconds and 49 seconds into the track. On playing it the second time I noted that, coincidentally dogs seemed to be barking outside again. The third time I still at first thought that dogs were barking outside then quickly realized it seemed too much of a coincidence. So I played it, listening close to the speakers to note where the barking sound was coming from, and found it to be definitely on the disc, not coming from outside. It was only after noting all this that I first noticed that the CD cover shows a dog in front of these singing nuns. So maybe it was dog barking heard on the track. But I sort of thought the sound resembled somewhat the barking of a smaller dog than the one pictured. After the two background barking-like sounds on the track, I heard on listening closely and noted other extraneous background sounds, some resembling human speech, some more obscure. In any event no such extraneous sounds, whether from dogs, people, or whatever, seem to do anything to enhance the musical quality of the track. And I found no similar background sounds on any other track of the disc.
