    Odds and ends from 1969. Some tracks are great ("Ships Passing Through The Night", for instance).

    Deep Purple. "Mandrake Root", live at Long Beach, July 30th, 1971.
    Bad mastering (and I knew it before buying it), but it's the only official '71 live Purple.

    OK I've listened to a lot of music over the past 24 hours. I may repeat myself a bit since I listen to most things I listen to more than once, and don't always remember what I already listed.

    Groundhogs
    Who Will Save the World?

    Soft Boys
    Can of Bees
    Underwater Moonlight
    Invisible Hits

    Robyn Hitchcock
    (& sometimes Egyptians)
    S/T
    Moss Elixir
    Fegmania!
    A Bad Case of History
    Radio Sessions
    Disc One (this is I think a bootleg, I got it from a blog--some of it is fantastic!)


    I found this on Youtube today, I can't remember what put me onto it but at first pass it sounds very promising, it has some Pere Ubu to it...



    If anyone knows anything about this band, I'd love to hear what you think of it...

    I saw the Beastie Boys on this tour... it was a blast. I'm still pretty stunned that Adam Yauch is gone, a real gut punch.

    Tonight, one of my all time favorites, NRBQ, At Yankee Stadium. Also, Ian Dury's "Sex and Drugs and Rock 'n' Roll". Saw David Byrne on Colbert and he was good as well.

    Other recent stuff: Traffic, John Barleycorn Must Die - last night, first listen on vinyl in ages (cymbals and percussion don't come through nearly as well on CD and this is a perfect album, especially Side 1. Cowboy Junkies, Black Eyed Man, my second favorite of theirs after The Trinity Sessions.

    More Hendrix odds and ends. The best tracks of these releases could have made a truly extraordinary volume.

    I'll bet that I've not listened to this in ten years. It's funky, jazzy and and full of pop.
    It was considered a good release when it came out. The buzz was that some Steely Dan members came aboard. I saw the Dan a year or so before this release, a concert that they were double-billed with Blue Oyster Cult... yeah, they did that kind of thing back in that decade. Anyway, BOC canceled, half the crowd left to get their money back, and Steely Dan played for about 15 minutes and stopped dead mid song. 'Are we not playing loud enuf for you?' It was Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter (w/his walrus mustache), who seemingly was not thrilled with the response they were getting. He's on the cover below, I believe (or maybe Pat Simmons). It was a great show, even then. SD wouldn't tour again for another 20 years.

    Decided to go with the follow up since it was conveniently located... not a bad
    release either. Michael McDonald dominates vocally, and although I'm not
    McDonald fan, he had talent and helped to make both records good ones.
    In some ways it sounds just as good if not better now? Why not.

    Moving on from the Doobs to another nostalgic record. Played
    this not long ago and had to take another go. Perfect choice.
    The nightly closing song at one of my favorite watering holes
    back in my youth was on here... Lovestruck. With Duke Robillard.

    More posthumous Hendrix. It's hard for me to remember what's on each release, but also a lot of fun to analyze each one. Thankfully, pretty good liner notes prove to be useful.

    I watched the first half of the No Direction Home DVD (Bobby D.) and, wow, the last time I watched this was probably when it came out on DVD several years ago, and I was floored last night. I had to re-watch any part where folks including Dylan relate and speculate on why and how he did what he did.

    Awesome film. It's not going to happen, but a second part focused on the 70's would be splendid.

    New Riders of the Purple Sage self titled and then Bowie's Ziggy Stardust soundtrack from the Five Years box. These live versions of Moonage Daydream and Width of a Circle have made me die and go to guitar heaven. Been nice knowing y'all.

    Love that debut NRPS album.

    And, of course, Ronno rocks!

    A quadruple shooter that needs no introduction... a few songs from each.

    I watched the second half of the Dylan DVD. Wow, I forgot that he didn't tour eight years after the '66 tour. But a lot of that was due probably to his motorcycle accident.

    Then I watched X, The Unheard Music.

    CRB played a really good show yesterday in Göteborg. Cool venue with two bars at the rear, and another bar upstairs at the balcony. Chris Robinson is a great front man. I hope thwy return soon!
    I was impressed by the sound. Neal Casal's guitars was really loud but very clean sounding. What a player! The encore was a fast paced Positively 4th street! Great way to end the show!

    Speaking of Casal... I miss the Cardinals. They had a great pedal steel player and a great drummer. And Ryan himself is a good guitarist. Probably the best band of the 2000s. Saw them live two times and was very impressed!
