  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Spectacular sound in the now-complete canon of related compositions from the early-mid '70's courtesy this expanded reissue. Phenomenal! My favour tends toward the final handful of tracks that bespeak interstellar transmissions of an alien insect intelligence...the kind of sound that made the Seastones session of Jai Alai 6/23 such a perfect intermission companion piece to that spectacularly bizarre and utterly elite Dead show. http://relisten.net/grateful-dead/1974/6/23-7/seastones On order: Szell Complete Columbia and the next edition of Bear's Sonic Journals - ABB Fillmore East '70. Days of Riches!
  2. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Jam-filled coronaries on serve during the fourth iteration...spectacular brace of soaring sets - and a riffin reprise of Lawn Boy to close a Julius encore?!
  3. What music did you buy today?

    Announcement of the deluxe CD box set @ about $500 slated for release later this year - and with accoutrements lost on my Spartan style - sparked anxiety about the continuing availability of individual shows in physical form, so I belatedly pulled the trigger on the latter. Certainly the most extraordinary live performance RnR event in my lifetime.
  4. What music did you buy today?

    Phish: Baker's Dozen. Individually on livephish.com ($299). Perhaps the greatest RnR transpiration in my 33 years on the planet. Pending release of a deluxe box set consolidating all 13 shows with a cache of flea market accoutrements likely indicates the pending death of individual installments on CD; thus, purchase of all separate shows for 60% of the new glambox will be one of those future laments if eschewed. If you don't know about the band's legendary 2 week MSG residency at this point, then I can be of no assistance. The Caps won, eh?! Ovie #8!!
  5. What music did you buy today?

    and just about the entire CAKE catalogue after hearing RnRLifestyle on Sirius Lithium. Dry irony is so deliciously British, regardless of etiology. heh
  6. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    On the cusp of a new decade, a beacon into the mists of rock's future presaging punk, post, and a burgeoning alt underground.
  7. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I readily hear this as a Who album; material largely derived from a fruitful period circa Who's Next, which certainly sat in high cotton no matter which direction you travelled along the release chronology!
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    et al. Familiarity most certainly breeds contempt on an interpersonal level, but not with great art. Had The Floyd been recorded and released with any degree of prolificity, they'd dwarf my favourites, from LVB & Mozart to Mingus & Miles to Kimbrough & Burnside to The Dead & ABB. Genres and their varied geniuses would be laid to waste by the inimitable inferno of performing Pink in the heyday prior to capitulation to ego. With so little of great live sound available, the Peel sessions are an invaluable chronicle of the hottest burning meteor that entered terminal orbit far too soon.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    My inaugural listens during Saturday's long trail run. Phenomenal. While that opinion may be as remarkable as proposing citizen ownership of anti-tank weaponry at an NRA convention, the following does seem a bit controversial in light of universal praise following release this past week: I needed a Youngian antidote the intermittently anemic and often sterile play of the Roxy set. Treasure provides a consistent pulse, live animation of studio work, and optimal use of a stage full of outstanding complementary talent.
  10. Listening Patterns

    Monotheistic saturation. And then on to the next deity.
  11. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Along with Sticky, Bleed is the gambit of a 1-2 knockout combo situated in the radioactive heart of an arguably unprecedented 6-string studio run from Satanic Majesties through Goat's Head. Woody Payne lives.

    Slumming along the luminescent edge of musical footnotes...
