John Mayer's new album - "Paradise Valley". Listening to it for the first time.
It's not his best work (that would be either "Continuum" or "Try!", IMO), but it's far from being his worst.
EDIT: After listening to a bunch of live Dead shows lately, this album seems downright short!
Anyway.... Moving on to Blues Traveler's "Save His Soul", and then I see Yes's "Close to the Edge" album coming up on my playlist, followed by a virginal listening of the GD's "So Many Roads 1965-1995"
I can't remember exactly when I first heard the call of Miles Davis's trumpet, but it's been well over a decade--maybe two. Going on two days of nothing but Miles. Yesterday was "'Round About Midnight," "Birth of the Cool," "Kind of Blue," and "Sketches of Spain." Starting this morning off with "Bitches Brew" and will be following that up with "Sorcerer," "A Tribute to Jack Johnson," "The Man With the Horn," "You're Under Arrest," and "Tutu."
8/24/38 Duke Ellington "Duke's Men, Vol. 2"
8/24/54 J.J.Johnson "Savoy Sessions"
8/24/58 Dizzy Reece "Blues In Trinity"
8/24/68 Grateful Dead "Two from the Vault" This is the bomba!!!
Question: Will there be a "Four from the Vault"?
I find Trey's Traveler album to be extremely uplifting.
After waking up with a lovely tequila hangover ("Tequila Sunrise"?), I've been in a very '60s groove today. It started off with the Guess who, transgressed over to the Who--I listened to the London Philharmonic Orchestra's recording of "Tommy" last night, which is AMAZING--before shifting to the Turtles. Currently, I'm listening to Seals & Crofts, which I'll be following up with early Pink Floyd.

I picked up a copy of "100 Year Hall" in the bargain rack at Rasputin's records here in California (one of the last great record stores incidentally).
I know it's old hat for a lot of fans but it's brand new to me and I'm really enjoying it.
I've been listening to a lot of late 70's and early 80's Dead. I am noticing the crispness of the band in '72.
I was listening to the version of "The Other One" yesterday under the full moon. I saw Rolling Stone used it as part of their reasoning in picking Jerry as one of the greatest guitarists of all time.
Definitely a great concert and picking it up for $ 7 is all the better.
I'm new on the these forums but have been a Dead fan since the mid-80's. I only saw them three times. I wish I had seen them more but the music lives on.
