Thanks for the tip. In case you missed it, there's a short documentary out on Vimeo where Stephen talks to GD historian Blair Jackson while recording for the slack project out in CA: https://vimeo.com/223074777
It's really cool seeing two GD nerds discuss the project's background. David Gans also makes an appearance.
I love the live Ummagumma disk. My into to Pink Floyd along with Meddle in the early 70s.
If you're in FL check out Unlimited Devotion!
You might want to check out Hawk Tubley & The Airtight Chiefs "Cooking With Dynamite!" - features Oteil on bass, Marshall Allen of the Sun Ra Arkestra on sax, and other good musicians. A few GD references in the lyrics, too. It's on Spotify, Bandcamp, etc.
Saw them at the Lomond Hotel in Brunswick Melbourne last week. Travelling to Tassie this weekend to see them again. They are THAT good!
You have given me a marvelous quotes
I am not against anybody's musical tastes, but I would stay away from anything that purports to motivate me in any particular direction. As Lao Tzu said...if nothing is done, nothing is left undone. Another great sage, Lux Interior, hit the nail on the proverbial head ...Keep the rewards, I'd just as soon stay sick.
They are obviously solid, very tight musicians. However, I found their recorded music to be almost muzac for Deadheads...excellent background music played by exceptional musicians. Luckily, I had opportunity to catch a live show, and for $20, I gave it a shot. All I can say is "Wow"...extreme energy live...very tight, almost disciplined live, but also highly creative and improvisational. They played about 2 1/2 hours non-stop with VERY impressive jams. I highly recommend their live shows.
