    It's hard for me to stop at one X album.

    Wild Gift, man.

    Although "Universal Corner" is on this album, a live version of it is in the bonus material of Under The Big Black Sun CD (Elektra/Rhino R2 74372). They need to officially release some live shows of these guys from back in the day. I can't think of any such releases off the top of my head.

    What does that mean, when an LP is roached out? An LP jacket would make a horrible, too big, and unusable roach clip.

    I go out of my way to drop doobage references, even where they make no sense.

    You can get more estrogen drinking a lot of soy milk.

    Don't worry. In a couple o' days I'll spin some hard rock or punk rock to restore my low T to healthier levels. :goodie::pineapple::righton:

    ...but for now - spinnin' one of Van the Man's classics:

    Van Morrison - Moondance
    Rhino LP (mastered/cut by Steve Hoffman & Kevin Gray)

    **** me, this sounds amazing. "Crazy Love" is on at the moment and sounds miles better than the previous CD versions I've heard.

    Same thing as being down to the roach. Not much left in the tank. Is there gas in the car? Maybe there's gas in the car. At least that's my guess - never heard the term applied specifically to an LP before, but in the parlance of the times among a certain group of friends, "roached" was a general term for things that had gone in a southward direction.

    Did they use the original version of Into the Mystic with the tambourine? I would expect they would... I had only heard the alternate take that was incorrectly included on most reissues including the original CD release until the recent CD re-release with the 3 extra discs. Pretty different takes, I like them both but am still more used to the incorrect take...

    The Doors - Singles collection.

    Man, I used to adore The Doors when I was in school at the age of 14-17. I still like them but I don't listen much and I wasn't really into their live stuff.

    Overall I prefer studio Doors, but they were still a great live band. I haven't kept up with most of the last decade or so of live releases but the very recent Isle of Wight Blu-Ray DVD/CD is very cool just to see a full performance (Morrison on the mellow side but not wasted and the rest of the band in fine form) and the Aquarius Theater vinyl release from RSD a couple years ago is a fantastic performance and sounds amazing.

    I was planning to get the Isle of Wight blu-ray but then I read about the modern guitar overdubs and drum sampling. I'm mostly fine with overdubs if it's done within the same time frame, but when it's done 47 years later I find it hard to except.

    I did stream the show though, but I was at work and couldn't really focus on the music much

    I bought the Isle of Wight release and didn't even give it a try yet. Some production decisions made in the making of it are a bit irritating.
    Incidentally, a great Doors live album is Pittsburgh, 1970. Morrison is sober and focused, and the band sounds great, one of the best archival release in the band's catalogue. The Felt Forum box set is pretty great too.

    The beginning of what I consider Santana's peak years: 1972-1974. A brilliant album by all means.

    I bought the IOW release too. I’ve been following the discussion of the issues with it in the IOW thread (until it was shut down) and the more recent live Doors thread, and I agree with the criticisms. But my Amazon preorder price was only $18 and I was curious so I didn’t cancel my order. I watched it last weekend and enjoyed it. The CD may not get much play because of the modern overdubs, etc. but it's nice to have the video.

    I bought Pittsburgh last year after reading you and others recommend it in a different Doors thread. That was a good pickup.

    Still a much more enjoyable listen than Waters latest in my opinion.

    Eh, just buy it and enjoy it. In the end it's all just puppets and stew meat, anyway. I can't conceive of all the trickery that went into the Led Zeppelin DVD, but it's great.

    I didn't know about the overdubs. That's a bummer, but at least wasn't really noticeable.

    Big fan of X, they were a one and only that really worked for me. I also like the Blasters and Los Lobos... all talented west coast bands that were part of a great early 80's renaissance of sorts (Paisley Underground included). All three of the above named seemed to rotate Steve Berlin, the sax player, and Billy Zoom seemed to switch around too; so did Dave Alvin. Wild Gift is nothing short of a masterpiece, Big Black Sun had some Doors influence with Ray Manzerak producing. I got to see their Unclogged Tour when they appeared here unbelievably, all those years ago. I love the Live at the Whiskey A Go Go... power not to be believed. eXene, John Doe, Bonebrake and Billy ZOOM, hats off to them all.

    A like a handful of Fleetwood Macs, but this is the one that takes a ride in
    the transport the most.
