Alabama Shakes are blowing me away right now.
let me look into this.
Didn't know where to put this question, and I apologize if it has been asked and answered elsewhere, but I didn't see a thread for JGB. Not in GD section. Not in this one. Ratdog. Phil & Friends. Donna Jean. Mickey. But no JGB? Seems rather curious, to say the least. They are still putting out releases, Garcia Live, for instance, and I just wandered over to see if there was opinion on it, and no thread for JGB. What's up?
I agree with Marye that this is well worth listening to. Even better is the Barnes and Noble exclusive edition which features 6 demos on a second CD. Three of the six feature on the regular album, three do not. These are not rough but polished demos. I actually prefer the demo disc to the regular disc (don't tell Boz !).
especially if you like his earlier work: the Boz Scaggs Memphis album currently sitting by the cash register at my local Starbucks, where it caught me in a weak moment this morning. As the name suggests, Boz goes to Memphis and gets some great session folks and does old tunes. More smoldering than pyrotechnic, but some very nice moments. I think my favorite so far is "Corinna, Corinna," not the Hunter song but the old folk song that's on that early Bob Dylan album...
Hey Now! wanted to share some new music with you all, THE REAL, Psychedelic Jam Rock Funk Fusion from Portland Oregon.
Super rock'n and groovin 4 piece (Guitar, Bass, Rhodes, Drums) kinda a mix of styles like The Grateful dead, String Cheese, Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd, and a touch of Herbie Hancock
Great Band from South Carolina,Great Harmonies remind me of CSN&Ys Early stuff
I highly recommend Crazy Fingers if you live in South Florida or are on vacation in south florida. Very acomplished musicians playing mostly Dead covers with some Jerry Band stuff as well. Mostly playing in Palm Beach County and Broward County (a bit more in palm beach county than broward) Dont forget to see where they are playing if you go on vacation here and are a dead fan! the website is www.crazyfingers.net
I HIGHLY recommend this band: www.TheRemnantsCT.com
