  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Nothing sacrificed: sneering sax, brash horns, screaming lead guitar, colon bouncing bass, funky e-keys. Hard-to-find-physical media though, which has a become a common problem lately; but I've tagged a reputable Euro seller with the CD on discogs for about $20. hmmmmm. EDIT: The Dan "Do It Again" instrumental cover you didn't know you were waiting to hear! (Kind of like Bale as the Batman you couldn't image getting excited over again, or Craig as a relevant resurrection of the obsolete womanizing suave-spy archetype.)
  2. Phish tix in the po'box this p.m.; unlike Lockn where I at least feign roughing it in rolling 4 **** accommodations, I've decided my Outback and bricknmortar lodgings will do just fine on what should be an adventurous run from Hampton to Vegas between 10/19 and Halloween Night in Sin City. I'm only taking one show in Rosemont to facilitate a leisurely slog west, to include a one-night cabin rental in Grand Teton before spending another night in SLC (never visited either!). Near-universal wifi and a mobile workstation have revolutionized my quality of life more than quilted toilet paper, hot water heaters, and Trader Joe's Cookie Butter (though none are indispensable at this point). I've got trail running routes mapped along the way in addition to having identified a couple Y's where I can day pass into lap swimming. Happy.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Though my initial reaction was, "Oh my God, yes!", the profligate abuses of "OMG" in the interweb age precludes invocation in proper society. So I won't. The crown jewel might well be "Down in The Flood", with Dylan rollin and Toussaint's quintet adding uncharted ornamentation you can almost hear the crackle of electric charges jumping between players. Some Saturday night heresy: It's a stone cold lock over "Last Waltz".
  4. Hiatus-bound Winterland 74 stand ... upper echelon - nay, elite - stuff; just a comp of course, w/ movie soundtrack plus, and the "plus" is critical as there warn't a dispensable note struck or chord played during the Ides of October that year. 5CDs/$18. Prime deal, though. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007PAMN8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  5. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    For some reason, perhaps a melancholia imported by interminable rains over the Appalachians, I pulled my ZepII Ludwig pressing tonight; no talent for procurement or investment on my part, simply a component of a considerable vinyl collection bequeathed by an uncle I miss terribly.
  6. What Are You Watching

    "Billy Sue" - she's what's yer life's been missing. Caution: the related video library is quite nearly addictive as the ETOH in Billy's 64 oz, genetically attached megathermos.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Technology fosters a certain audiologic pedantry that discounts the practical difficulties of archival transfers. Still, while a bit of the 2-track blues is understandable here, Plangent alchemy has affected significant sonic upgrades to existing sources. Portland 74 is a well-known quantity, but the Truckin' Jam is a luminescent passage that defies contempt for even acute familiarity. While my favourite GDTRFBs tend to grind like roughly upshifted semi gears in transition from the preceding track, this strong rendition ascends from NFA with deliberate fluidity; also, Keith's assertive - sometimes catalystic - play makes many first-set standards remarkable. Edit: I can't imagine a more comprehensive, aesthetically pleasing release - from accompanying book cover and CD digipack art to the CD themselves and - of course - the stellar box, right down to the tactile overlay stencil design on the lid's underside.
  8. Bob Dylan corner

    Familiarity with the related bootleg catalogue seems to have dampened enthusiasm among the tribal elders*, but I know only the album proper, so I find this selection for #14 optimal. What an exceptional year for box sets - Szell Columbia, Zappa Roxy, Dead PNW, Lips first six+ .... and a few others that have left indelible imprints on my VISA. Because the amazon.uk page appears to address a Japanese import edition, I shouldn't imagine that the price quoted for this (purportedly) 6-disc release will be as exorbitant for the conventional Euro & US versions. Curious as well to see whether the Dylan site will exclusively offer an expanded edition as with the GospelBob release. https://www.amazon.co.uk/More-Blood-Tracks-Bob-Dylan/dp/B07GVXL5DQ/ref=s... *https://www.bobdylanisis.com/access-all-areas-blog/
  9. Tomorrow night: Phil/Friends' Headcount benefit at the Apollo - my first visit (bucket list!). Saturday, I safari for a new deli (lunch) and pizza (dinner), among whatever else might be happening in that sleepy city (I've heard rumours).
  10. What music did you buy today?

    It has been a terribly expensive year for musical acquisitions, fomented by a daunting confluence of magnificent boxes and increasingly deep discoveries for which OOP catalogue prices can accumulate at an alarming rate with just single CDs or LPs. Recent exploration of the oft fluid punk, post, new wave, alt & mod continuum has precipitated a revaluation of the late 70s/early 80s in general...particularly spawn with (at least some) Brittanic DNA. Balanced with considerable attention to the new Szell box, the variegated listening menu has been great fun, if a bit gaudy on the monthly statement.
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Staples of Bannon's diet, but also a magnificent early-ish effort from a band historically lodged somewhere within the positive amplitude of Brit punk's initial wave.
  12. Best track you heard all week

    fantastic rendition from my favourite score of a personally beloved film...what a joy to see every nuance of this magnificent composition produced organically on stage
  13. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    An above average show during a mediocre year within the mid-80's Dust Bowl. With a wish list now dwindled to a mere handful of titles, my continuing blind participation in Dave's Vault roulette is inexplicable. I suppose the $100 pittance of a table minimum has something to do with it. I do hope DL recognizes the big five-oh with a 68 release for #4.
  14. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    My indoctrination. Life will never be the same. Today: Quebec, DC, Asbury Park. Starless & Sailor's box sets due in tomorrow, less than a week after receiving Red. If your heart still contracts, your lungs draw air, and your eyes open to daylight, then why would you not be listening? Took me 33 years; Christ's life span. My hope is for another 4+ decades to explore this catalogue.
