The Disregard of Timekeeping

disregardoftimekeeping.jpg I've wanted Bonham's The Disregard of Timekeeping for a long time - and now the album is finally available on iTunes! Thanks to a gift card, the album is now on my iPod.

If you don't remember, the track listing looks like this:

 

 

 

 

 

The Disregard of Timekeeping
Wait for You
Bringing Me Down Guilty
Holding On Forever
Dreams
Don't Walk Away
Playing to Win
Cross Me and See
Just Another Day
Room For Us All

Basically, this albums owns you. I love the song "Guilty" and the entire album seems to hold up really well, nearly two decades after its initial release. Furthermore, if you like Led Zeppelin, you'll probably really dig Bonham. Jason got his dad's drumming genes and sense of song construction. The last I read, MacMaster was working on a solo project and a new album. I'd love to hear his new stuff.

Even better, Daniel MacMaster can actually sing. His voice could easily overpower The Disregard of Timekeeping, but excellent production means that doesn't happen.

If you don't remember Bonham, don't fret. Here's the video for "Wait for You."



So, do you own The Disregard of Timekeeping? The critics loved this band - but they just didn't last long enough to create a complete catalog.

I had this on cassette several years ago, and played songs from it on my college radio show. It's a keeper.

Of course I own it! :)

I have had this one on CD for years!

I heard it once or twice when it first came out and thought it was just okay.

"So, do you own The Disregard of Timekeeping?"

Yeah - got it on vinyl. The only thing I can remember the critics saying went something like "if anyone's got a right to sound like Zeppelin then it's probably Jason Bonham's band". I don't recall many critics loving it over here but it was about 20 years ago I guess!

I think Bonham was a really good band. I have seen "The Disregard For Timekeeping" at my local used CD store, and have been meaning to pick it up for the longest time! They also have their second album "Mad Hatter" their...is that one as good as the first one?
I know the song "Change of a season" off of it, and I love it!
BONHAM ROCKS!

"Mad Hatter" got stuffed in Kerrang! as I recall. Could be wrong though....

I've had this CD along with Mad Hatter. This CD, to me, is better than the 2nd release. This brought a different feel to the late 80's music scene. It also brought my friends to the realization that Zeppelin ROCKS! Which I was stating for years but that is a whole other story.
The drumming by Jason is remarkable! You can hear his Dad's influence on him.
Great disc Allyson! You can also get ROXX GANG on ITUNES

Allyson,
The vocals are excellent here. Danny had a very powerful voice, Unfortunately it seemed the record label wanted him to sound a bit more like Robert Plant for this "Bonham" release. I worked with Daniel on some new material about 2 years ago. The VOICE is still there...just an amazing singer. The years did not harm his pipes for sure.

I bought this when it came out on cassette and I replaced it years ago on CD. When this record came out, the local stations here were playing the heck out of 'Wait For You' so I bought it on that song alone. I agree that MacMaster sounds like Plant but that was the angle: capitalize on the Bonham name and the Led Zep connection.

Check out Airrace or the 2 Virginia Wolf albums for more Bonham although I think they are average and this record is better.

I have rediscovered the Bonham CD's. It is timeless music as it does not sound dated. Very well produced. Macmasters vocals are great too. Most of their songs had catch chorus with jamming drums and a little bit of keyboard. The whole band definitely still deserves more airplay. RIP Macmaster.
