    If only there was a thread devoted exclusively to the band we shall not name ... If only it had 5000 plus pages and 100s of users. If only

    Sounds intimidating.

    Seriously though. Someone comes into this thread asking for advice and you’d prefer to refer him to another thread than respond in the moment?

    ARK is right, Erik, we need to ignore the rules this time, someone might be on the verge of discovering some of the most wonderful music ever made.
    Plus, I don't have time to look for drawings of policemen in comic books right now :D

    Archtop Agitation: Soft Dead Frumpy Crimson Cow

    I do believe that it has been a successful undertaking. :cool: I didn't want to use up too many golden bullets too early (maybe he'd have too much too fast) but I also wanted to cut to the chase to avoid the missing-the-mark-sensory-overload syndrome. Now bzfgt syndrome has a second cousin: mtmso syndrome.

    Yes, I know, "that album again". But now, in the complete darkness of a hot summer night.

    Yeah I'm loving Dylan's vocals in the late 70's. Very passionate and inspired. A bit shouty at times but I dig it. His bands continued to kick a$$ as well.

    NP Camel The Snow Goose. Prog Rock of course. I'm kinda on the fence on this one. Some really nice instrumental passages (actually seems like the album is all instrumental) at times but will it be something I'll come back too...

    I always heard his late 70s vocals were big in Germany.

    Archtop Agitation: Soft Dead Frumpy Crimson Cow

    I do believe that I have something of a knack for steering folks gently into this good night. I once talked a classical novice here through some 300 years of classical music in under 30 hours. He claimed that he really liked out music, but couldn't find any classical that he liked. My approach was to get a sense of where to start (i.e., Vivaldi vs. Bartok) and then push the envelope until the breaking point, layer by layer. I ended up starting with Albinoni's Adagio and progressing through Bartok, Janacek, Webern, Schoenberg, Stravinski, Schnittke, Lutoslawski and then Krzysytof Penderecki. It wasn't until Penderecki that I broke him. Then we both knew where it was for him.

    Actually, your recommendations make more sense for a fan of improv than any of the studio records. I think SJR and I were simply considering the album most likely to hook him, but the reality is that the Dead is much more about the various iterations of live jams and extended versions than any of their studio records, the exceptions being WD and AB for fans of country or Americana, or maybe the early records for someone who loves psych, blues, or garage rock.

    Don't waste your breath. The "joke" was old about 1000 pages ago.

    Saw The Verve play twice. Once after A Northern Soul and after Urban Hymns. Both absolutely ****ing amazing. Ashcroft had a thing back then.

    Now this was a fun night. The band got arrested durning set break on their bus. The police let them finish the show and since the band knew they were going to jail after the gig they weren’t in a hurry to get off stage. The power was cut during their third encore.
