Not at all, at all...I've seen Warren play with them...his slide solo was cranked up, one of the best I've ever heard.

Warren and Derek have been in the band for 10 and 20+ years. They are the real deal. Warren Haynes is becoming a legend in the jam band scene. I saw him a few years ago filling Jerry Garcia's spot in the Grateful Dead. Derek Trucks just won a grammy for best blues album. I hope to see them again soon Wink
Sitting in the waiting area getting some auto service work done and they're playing "current" country music.

I'm not THAT old but I guess I've crossed that line because the stuff coming out these days sucks. IMO there hasn't been much if any good country music in the last 20 years and it gets worse the more time passes.

I admit the last time i saw them was late '90s. Warren was playing circles around Dickie.

The back where it all begins from the namesake album (song is recorded live in the early '90s) is awesome (thanks to Dickey).
Sting - Live in Berlin

I love to hear what was going through an artist's mind as they composed and wrote lyrics because it adds so much as you listen, especially to songs you've enjoyed for so many years. I also love a full orchestra because there are so many nuances that show behind the regular band.

One of my all time favorite artists and one of his best shows.

I also enjoy his recording in Tuscany on 911.

That's a great one also for so many reasons. I enjoyed seeing how he brought everyone in to the villa for all the preparation, and it was amazing to watch as they dealt with how to handle things after the events of the day.

That one also showed how good music can cross multiple genres as he redid his songs as jazz, country, reggae, and others.

Another reason he's one of my favorites.

A very controversial work for Miles.


And in many ways a masterpiece, or as he put it "It's music and I like it.". If you're in the mood for Kind of Blue this won't scratch the itch. It does have a purity of soul though that makes my chest tight every time I listen to it.

Oh, I'm a fan. Like you said, when he was asked if this is jazz, he said as only Miles could say... I don't know man. It is music, and I like it! Cool

Nice lineup, and appropriate for the location!
A compilation of hits from '58-'59. All enjoyable but Santo and Johnny's Sleepwalk is in a class by itself...timeless.
Paul Thorn Band - So Far So Good

Saw him open for Bonnie Raitt a while back and loved him. Blend of blues and rock with a Tupelo, Mississippi swirl through it...

Spo, it took a while for this one to grow on me. I think a lot of fans who were into Maiden from the beginning were put off by the use of synthesizers. There are some fantastic songs on that album.

I was hoping Preist's "Point of Entry" would be another newly discovered gem. Not really.

Some LPs that my collection was seriously missing that I picked up recently

What do you think of jazz on pandora? I signed up, but haven't subscribed. Seems like a bit of a challenge if you don't pay to listen to what you want.

I tried to get a Bach channel, but as someone who doesn't pay I didn't get much Bach. I picked Thelonius Monk, which was much better. I didn't get much Monk but got a lot of interesting stuff.

I don't pay either so same experience, although still not bad. I'm not a big Pandora user as I tend to stream my favorite Austin stations or shuffle the stuff on my iPhone/iPsd. Just happened to go to Pandora and it was pretty nice...

I like some of the old Bauhaus, but i think that Peter Murphy was better on his own. Old Love & Rockets were good as well.

She has an incredible voice. Her "Rapture" album from 1987 is a classic in my opinion.
Trying out Rhapsody.

Enjoying Powerslave, Somewhere in Time from Iron Maiden.

Too many albums from Judas Priest, from Sad Wings to Ram it Down.

Savatage; Sirens, Dead Winter Dead, Handful of Rain.


A few songs from Kimbra

Yeah Yeah Yeahs It's Blitz

And of course Carly Rae Jespen's Call me Maybe.

Modest Mouse - Good News For People Who Like Bad News

Washington State should be proud of these guys. Brilliant. Nevermind those grunge kids.
Modest Mouse - I listened to them a ton in college. Now every time I hear them it takes me back.

Me, I'm on a big bluegrass kick. Sprinkled in with the new Tallest Man on Earth and White Arrows. Also really enjoy the new Sigur Ros.

Eek A quick check of Wikipedia tells me Isaac Brock was born in 1975. So he was 5 when I started college. Not part of my college soundtrack, but they are a great band.
Vino Bevo - I have heard of the Carolina Chocolate Drops. Aside for one or two songs, their new album is very enjoyable.

Beausoleil, watching the kids while mommy gets her hair done.

Dead, 03-19-77, winterland. Disc 1 has an annoying splice scar, cutting from Jerry's solo on TLEO to the last chorus of Tennesee Jed; the seamless Terrapin/playin/samson/playin on disc 2 recompenses.

Tears for Fears . . . Bad Man's Song & Year of the Knife. Damn good. These have been right under my nose for 23 years and today is the first time that I stumbled across them. How many other gems are in my CD collection that I've never listened to? These songs are on 'The Seeds of Love' CD.
Sitting on the patio at our house in NOTL chatting and listening to Eva Cassidy.

Her rendition of Danny Boy is one of my all time favorites.
Not usually one for sharing, but I'm procrastinating at work.

Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes

Miles Davis - Bitches Brew

This evening/morning (still at work):

Big L - Lifestylez ov da Poor & Dangerous
