    After listening to Oakland 2/25/90 this morning, I am steppin out o the Hot Tuna record Burgers. I recently picked up the CD but haven't properly listened to it yet.

    Also, might have to grab the new ABBA Live album and something from Chris Robinson Brotherhood on iTunes later today.

    Made myself a Stones playlist on spotify and playing it now:
    • Through the Past, Darkly (UK)
    • Emotional Rescue
    • Big Hits (UK)
    I think I may finally be coming around on "Jumping Jack Flash", a song I have never really preferred.

    Dylan Basement Tapes (in anticipation of the new box) and Another Self-Portrait plus random dips into back catalogue, Bill Frisell (mostly from his live downloads) and miscellaneous random stuff (old blues, ethiopian pop/jazz, John Fahey, Tin Hat)

    Why thank you! It's the Dead's fault for exposing me to so any kinds of music, especially bluegrass.

    Yeah, my brother and I were talking about that one the other day. You could spend a lifetime exploring their influences alongside their own music. See also: The Stones and blues. Not quite as extensive as Jerry's influences, perhaps, but it's a fruitful journey just the same.

    My Morning Jacket - I urge any Deadhead to check them out, if you haven't already. Start with At Dawn.

    The Amazing - (Found through the forums here.) Singer sounds a little like Nick Drake, some of the music reminds me of Pink Floyd. Start with Gentle Stream.

    Chris Robinson Brotherhood - I was never a big Black Crowes fan (though, I didn't dislike them), but a friend turned me on to CRB. Saw them live and picked up Phosphorescent Harvest, haven't listened to their earlier albums yet.

    Thanks for the At Dawn rec. Will check it out.

    Just picked up Phosphorescent Harvest on iTunes this week after sampling some of Chris's audience recordings and being a fan of the Crowes' early records (but not really knowing anything past Amorica.) Looking forward to playing it, probably today after my morning Dead show is completed. :righton:

    I've been replaying the three album set of Another Self Portrait over the last few days. Some Rory Gallagher thrown in the mix too.

    Pete Shelley, Perfume Genius, and Lucinda Williams in the last day or so. I do have a Winterland '73 show waiting. I think I'll try it later.

    I'm not a deadhead myself, but I love the idea of the thread, "What do deadheads listen to when they are not listening to the Dead?" However, any kind of pattern would suggest that a
    certain kind of listener liked the Dead and I suspect this is not so. There is enough quality and
    variety among those first half dozen or so classic albums that I'm sure listeners of all stripes
    have become huge fans of at least one or two of them.

    I think it's a tribute to the band and to those early albums that there is no one answer (with regards to where to "start.") Too much variety among the good stuff for there to be a single right answer for everyone. What's meat to one is greens to another. Personally, American Beauty (which I like a lot) is my least favorite of the half dozen or so albums they had released up to that time.
