Why no JGB thread?

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?

Boz Scaggs - Memphis

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 !).

worth a listen

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...

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

I HIGHLY recommend this band:

Red Red Meat

great Stones-y, warm fuzzy and narcotic drawl. remember buying this when it came out in '93 on vinyl and that piece of shellac never left my turntable for a good long while.
low light wreathed in hazy night time smoke. some members went on to form the equally fantastic, if not more so, Califone.

You should give Jeff Beck the tone talker a listen.

In older age Jeff is remarkedly creative. Emotion Commotion with free listening tracks on youTube should stir the music within us. The emotional tones can fill our ears with words and feelings. Talking 'bout emotion: Love your neighbor and Love your enemy....paradox?? Sheen teaches that two emotions can exist in that I could love Stalin but Dislike what Stalin does. All for now, my earthly life beckons for me to keep on praising God's works.

We're from Pittsburgh, PA and love playing the music of the Grateful Dead. Here are a couple of videos, if you're interested. The first couple include a VERY special guest you may recognize ;0)
