Listening to Dinosaur Jr.'s debut, self-titled record (or was self-titled before they added the "Jr." to their name), which is pretty good. I'm more familiar with their reunion material, "Beyond," "Farm," and "I Bet on Sky," which are all pretty amazing records. "Dinosaur" is a little slower and a good bit more lo-fi, which I kinda like. J doesn't do the killer guitar soloes like he does on the band's later records, though, but then again this is 1985....
The LP is gone now, but if you're a fan of Dinosaur Jr., check out their live album "Chocomel Daze," which was recorded in '87. A number of their songs from "Dinosaur" are on that record but are a good bit faster, heavier, and just downright better. You can get it on iTunes, Amazon, or directly from Merge Records in digital format (it comes with a digital booklet if you get it from Merge and at a better price than iTunes).

9/24/76 sounding good! Connoisseur's Dead.
Because I just received the CD and BR set in the mail yesterday. I've listened to the regular soundboard countless times, but the improvement is remarkable. WOW. Great job.
(Unfortunately, the sound on the Blu-ray is not great. The 5.1 mix is missing low end -- almost nothing comes out of the subwoofer!)

Lately I have been jamming out on any anders Osborne stuff i can find on web to tickle my brain while i work, also been abusing any Lockin videos i can play at work...love it!
Bit the bullet the other week and ordered the box set. I'm listening to the shows in (chrono)logical order, and each set is pure gold. Currently listening to May 15th in St. Louis, which, so far, might be the weakest show of the box (?), but it picks up quite a bit once you hit disc 3. Personally, I thought "Estimated" was kinda weak, but that 18-plus minute "Dancing" was rather wild!
