    Chester’s was a mecca for Kimock at one time. He loved Fayetteville, that’s for damn sure...and these really are great to watch. I’ve got this Cole’s>Tangled (@1:25:00ish) committed to memory, which is fun because Steve runs thru everything a guitar player might wanna try...lol....then, well...It’s Up To You.

    I miss that music being made so much.

    ...and Bobby and Steve are white hot. They were the best “duo” I saw make music. Period. Ron’s Soundfield is the best mic you’ve never heard...if you haven’t heard it. Live music is THE best.

    Disc 5: “Through The Cracks”

    Probably my favorite of the three rarities discs on the box. Those Mudcrutch tracks at the start of the disc are wonderful. In fact, I prefer “Don’t Do Me Like That” to the famous remake.

    Great box! I picked it up used for 15 bucks in the late 90's, it was missing the only disc I could live without,
    the rest of the package intact. I was happy, had recently seen the tour supporting Playback, and best of
    all I've been playing some of the discs lately after sitting neglected for a few years.

    @notesofachord just won't stop bustin' out the CD compilations and boxsets! Party like it's 1999!

    Groovy music is good for the soul! After battling the C19 surge (our ICU is full) at work the past two days, I need some music medicine.

    After a post office snafu, finally received Dave Rempis' latest, Stringers and Struts. Jeff Parker is all over the 1st track, about halfway after Jeff solo's, Flaten and him have a bit of a duet, before Dave and Cunningham comes back in.

    It's great to hear Parker with Dave and the rest.

    Man I really miss seeing live music.

    This one’s a bit of a letdown after the fantastic 12x5 and Rolling Stones Now! albums. But hey, when it’s your fourth(!!) album in a span of only 14 months, you can be excused for running out of strong material.

    Still a load of fun though!

    Thanks for the recc on that book, I like Shoemaker's writing and have meant to check that out for some time, just can't do much book readin' anymore. However, that sounds like it must be focused on Rivers' RivBea Loft and it's scene, which I am quite familiar with. So, your recc inspired me to pull out what I consider the best document musically of that scene. Highly recommended if you're not familiar with it do give it some ear. I'm not sure how accessible it is these days unfortunately. I checked Amazon and there's one new listing for....$902.81 :rolleyes: Maybe available streaming somewhere?

    Wildflowers: The New York Loft Jazz Sessions Complete

    Recorded May 14-23 1976 at Studio Rivbea, Sam Rivers' loft, during the Wildflowers Festival and originally released across 5 LP's on the Douglas label. This Knit Media (Knitting Factory) set compiles those LP's across 3 discs of spiritual, free, funky, bluesy and adventurous Jazz and proves (again) that Jazz did not die in the 70's or get relegated to revisionist bop plagued by D.I.'d bass and dead, tuned-for-rock studios or CTI-like "fusions" designed to reach a new and wider audience. (Easy, I dig many CTI titles, just an easy descriptor.)

    While the sonics vary a bit likely due to the large number of different ensembles and the period across which it was recorded the sound in general is excellent (engineered by Ron Saint Germain no less, who recently did some killer work with Nels Cline) There's also a mix of working/recording groupings (i.e. Air) as well as Ad Hoc groupings and while some work better than others there's wonder to be found in every performance. Many well-known artists as well as many who deserve more investigation and some who likely left or fell out of the scene or music in general.

    What, no La Villa Strangiato?! :D

    Nice to see some material from "Caress Of Steel" in there. Iwas a massive Rush/Neil Peart fan back in the day. Faded away after "Signals" but still dig the early stuff from time to time.

    The "Didn't It Blow Your Mind!" set of funk CDs is some great stuff too.



    3CD boxset with 128-page hardbound book.

    This has been on my wishlist forever and now it’s finally mine! Escapist music at its best.


    Disc 1: Daquiri Dirges

    This first disc seems to be electric guitar led jams.

    You've been on a Satriani tear my friend. I can't explain why he's never connected with me that much even though I feel he should. I was going to say that I dig his "Black Country Communion" project with Jason Bonham but when I checked my album it turns out that's the other Joe; Bonamassa. :shrug:

    I dunno man, we're getting a little loose with the "box set" definition are we not? Four discs in a slim booklet does not a box set make :p
