As for what I'm listening to....
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Roy Buchanan (with the Snakestretchers) - Roy Buchanan
1972, Polydor PD 5033, LP
"John's Blues" wrings out about every note and tone available from a Tele and was the obvious preamble to his later cover of "After Hours". I'm not a country fan--but, if it all had this kind of vitality, I would be. Good stuff.
Cowboy Junkies - Best of
Neil Young - Silver & Gold
Phil Lesh & Friends (Trey & Page of Phish) 4-15-98 Warfield San Francisco
Picked up Crossroads festivals 1 & 2 a couple of weeks ago.
Got the Cream reunion last year.
Musical DVD's are the best bang for the buck, IMO
Harvey Mandel - Games Guitars Play
1970, Philips PHS 600-325, LP
Another treasure from my friend George. Harvey has been a favorite with me since his early 70's work with Mayall. This album has a lot of the same vibe.
Lerue Delashay, Law of Sve.
Albert Collins, Robert Cray and Johnny Copeland - Showdown!
1985, Alligator 4743, LP
A must have selection for your blues collection, this time on virgin vinyl. Amazing!
Just picked up a couple of classics-Kansas Leftoverture & Point of No Return.
Got 'em cranking right now
My wife bought 2 Michael Bublé CDs for me for Valentine's Day. I hadn't heard of him, but I'm impressed. We'll be seeing him in concert next Saturday night.
I forgot how good this was.
Sarah McGlachlin "Afterglow".
Vedy, vedy nice sounds.... ;)
Hopefully, your system can keep up with Anne. :D
One of my first jazz sacds. Soular Energy - The Ray Brown Trio.
Getting "into the groove" with Madonna....
Mississippi John Hurt - The Immortal Mississippi John Hurt (accompanying himself on the guitar)
1967, Vanguard VSD-79248, LP
The Gutter Twins - Saturnalia
Sound of Summer - The Very Best of the Beach Boys
It's time for a reunion concert now that the name use lawsuits have been settled.
Jimi Hendrix - The Complete Winterland Concerts-bootleg.
Can't believe there is a blizzard going on here in Illinois. 5 inches already and another 3-6 on the way. Blowing, sleeting and generally nasty. Thought I'd throw in some Hendrix jams and enjoy the forum this afternoon. ;)
Jimi Hendrix - Cherokee Mist- studio outtakes
Great quality alt. and unreleased versions of songs, partial songs and jams. Hendrix and his associates were genius's. Most of this stuff is so far ahead of it's time it's not funny. The fun with Hendrix's music beyond his commercial hits is just listening to endless jams. How they develop, meander and unfold is pure magic. This is true music without all the excess and pressure. Free flowing, from the soul.
At the moment.....
Wilco...Sky Blue Sky
Morph the Cat
Final Hendrix piece for the day.
Live Jimi Hendrix and B.B. King - "The King's Jam"
With the Paul Butterfield Blues Band feat. Al Kooper and Elvin Bishop
April, 9, 1968 at Generation Club in New York City
NOT officially released, brief release on Klondyke [sic] Records
A blues fan's heaven.
1. Like a Rolling Stone
2. Blues Jam #1 (Part 1)
3. Blues Jam #1 (Part 2)
4. Band Introduction by B.B. King
5. Blues Jam #2 (Part 1)
6. Blues Jam #2 (Part 2)
7. Blues Jam #3
8. It's My Own Fault
Fantastic historical document. I had to laugh because BB King states at one point he's 42 years old and he can do what he wants. 1968 seems like a long time ago. It's hard to believe he's 82 today. This was when Jimi was playing on the "chittlin' circuit". He used to jam with a lot of people before he became "famous".
The Raveonette's - Lust, Lust, Lust. Same old Phil Spector wall of sound with more distortion and more sex. Grab it and thank me later.
A Hundred Miles or More
Joe Zawinal...Brown Street
Journey - Escape, cd, 1981
Journey - Essential Journey, cd, disk 2, still waiting on someone to send me disk 1 ;)
The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

This is from 1970, and he is still touring in 2008
This is one guy that certainly can pull emotions with his music.
