    I definitely respect the effort on his part. I can't imagine what I'd feel like if I made it through listening to 100 tracks, hahah!

    It's just over 4 hrs... so it isn't craaaaazy long. But I imagine his voice would wear on you. I made it to 1915 or so and skimmed lol.

    Other than the Rounders, who were fantastic, I've only ever heard his album with the Bottle Caps, The People's Republic of Rock n Roll . It's actually pretty cool too.

    Are you familiar with Holy Modal Rounders though?

    Negative. I've heard the name, but never explored them for some reason. I'll put them on the radar... Anything I should start with?

    It really depends. They have a really acquired sound. Psych folk. Their first 2 are more traditional,and just guitar and fiddle, but in their own obnoxious way. Then they have their really psych trippy albums Indian War Woop and Moray Eel Eats the Holy Modal Rounders. Then a more full sound and full band in the 70s. Have Moicy and I Can Make a Wish for Potato are nice comps from the 70s that include Michael Hurley and Jeffrey Frederick and the Clamtones, who are both excellent as well. Have Moicy is a classic for me.

    My album of the week. Listened to this probably 6-7 times over the past few days. At times Henry Cow-ish, at times Gong-ish, this is Canterbury prog fusion of the highest order. Plus 5 bonus tracks.

    I discovered this one relatively recently. Agree with your assessment. Great stuff.

    Not sure how I missed this one. Apparently released in 2020. Streaming right now. Miles Davis the Lost Septet Live 1971. A really hot show.
    "This septet, never recorded in the studio (hence the “lost”), features Keith Jarrett on electric piano, Gary Bartz on saxes, Michael Henderson, electric bass, Ndugu Chancler on drums with Don Alias and Mtume on percussion. "

    The backstreet slide, the backstreet slide
    They're gonna get you, dead or alive
    Stab you in the back with a kitchen knife
    Doing the backstreet slide

    Do it all day. The backstreet slide.

    The instrumental coda of that song is just ridiculous, my dudes.

    Probably because it’s a grey market UK release? A real official release would be cool to see happen.

    “Happenstance” made them famous - in an alternate reality

    very surprised that at least a few of you Dead Heads haven’t discovered this band. Plus it’s of that vibe. Someone said once a cross between Lou Reed & Neil Young on acid. Better than either of them to my ears but who knows. Plus these records *sound* awesome. The mix of acoustic and electric is always astounding.

    HA!! - made them famous - LOL - glad I got to see them once circa 1993 @ Maxwell’s in Hoboken - it was the trio with Joey Burns on bass & John Convertino on drums.

    epic album as almost all of their recordings of this time frame are. still the most undervalued rock band there ever was.

    Another used CD I picked up in town yesterday. But I have to head back there and grab the other volume of Garcia/Saunders before it's gone.

    Wonderful musicians, all! Just about everything with Richard Sinclair or Dave Stewart is worth picking up. Caravan, Egg, National Health, etc.
