    We had a lot of fun with that one in college. When I was in college Rykodisc was cool. And they put out Old & In The Way also. I was in college for that, too.

    Hey, some people get to brag about how Woodstock and high school dovetailed for them, or Woodstock and college, but I have Rykodisc. I get to brag about Rykodisc. And if you have even an inkling of a problem with that, stop yourself right there. Because if you're reading this, you're just as lost as I.

    I remember back in about 99 or 2000 I happened upon this dive bar in the Inland Empire and some dude did a just cover of that. I was spellbound!!

    What @Erik B. said. IEMs are what some musicians use for monitors on stage. But that style of ear thingy has infiltrated consumer audiophile gear. I have four different pairs of those things. They are also called earphones or sometimes earbuds. They're good for sound isolation because they simultaneously act as earplugs, but the music comes through a small hole in the ear tip. You probably know all of this, but I don't want to erase what I just wrote.

    I got into them as I've depended on BART a lot, and until recently, those trains were screechingly loud, as you probably know. The new trains are really quiet, and they've worked on the old trains to make them a lot quieter. There's actually an ad on BART called "Stopping the BART screech." You've probably seen that, overlooking the heroin needles, garbage, abandoned clothing and bodily emissions.

    I thought for a minute you were going to forget the poop. Then I see these all encompassing nouns.

    All my album pictures are hyperlinks from discogs. I still have the one I bought in college, so I doubt it's BMG. I do have a lot of BMG CDs though. I didn't heavily start mining BMG until well after college, I think.

    Oh, the wind blows cold, on the trail of the Buffalo. Oh, the wind blows cold, in the Land of the Navajo.

    It's possible I'm 1/64 Navajo, but not likely.

    I'm controversial:

    Well, I guess there's a controversy between "blues purists" and people that can stomach anything from Hendrix to Zepp to the White Stripes and even sometimes, ugh, The Black Keys. The Keys didn't start "ugh" but they became it, in my opinion.

    I purchased many BMG (and Columbia House) cds and cassettes growing up as I was a poor cd. Gave me a chuckle then (and still does today) to find one of those ugly BMG bar codes in the wild. The local Zia has hipped to my game though, as they will put their Zia barcode completely over the barcode and you never know what you are actually going to get. Ugh!

    I don't think I understood any of this after "growing up."

    I couldn't get past "I was a poor cd." I'm not going to think about it any more; most of you folks are crazy anyway.

    I'm not an expert but after the Cobra recordings I think that RPWT is some of his best work. It was recorded in 1971 but shelved for five years for some dumb reason(record company stuff)

    SACD. 5.1 mix. Another classic. Pretty damn cool mix. The drums fills the room and the electric piano is all over.

    SACD. 5.1 mix. First jazz record I ever bought on my first trip to NYC in 2005.
    IIRC I also bought Birth of the cool

    David, you got all old on us... oh... wait... nevermind. He is the
    coolest of the west coast guys, always loved him, and the way
    he elevated the famous artist's work on record and live, including
    Warren Zevon himself. I've got an '80 show with he and Jackson
    Browne that I cherish.


    Meantime, Paul McCartney found his way to my digital
    transport, and back then, he was a cool 30 years old, oh
    the days. His essence was RAM and Band On the Run.
    Two of the the 1972-73 album covers that stumped us upon
    release included: Ziggy Stardust--was he floating above the
    ground, as we argued endlessly, and all those famous people
    on the cover of Band On the Run. What years! I remember
    both rather well. Drink to us, drink to our health... RAM On!
