Jamey Johnson "Living for A Song" a tribute to Hank Cochran I'm hearin' elements of the Possum.
4/26/72 Jahrhundert Halle Frankfurt, West Germany It's the show that brought me back to the bus. The 1st official release, however, in 1995 pales sonically. Robert Hunter's write-up in the "gatefold" is wortth hanging on to for sure though. I'm still in complete disbelief I'm listening to show after show from the Spring '72 Europe tour.
Stories Don't End
I'm struggling with this band. I think that I want to like them but I just can't quite get there. Taylor Goldsmith sounds much too much like Jackson Browne, and the band has that SoCal Laurel Canyon vibe, but the songs just don't quite grab me. "Stories" is their third album. Jackson Browne's third album was "Late for the Sky." Nearly forty years later, I'm still playing "Late for the Sky." Right now I'm doubting that forty days from now I'll still be playing "Stories."
Maybe it'll grow on me...

Can't wait to get home where Bombino's 'Agadez', Chelsea Light Moving's self-titled debut, and 'The Velvet Underground & Nico 45th Anniversary' are waiting to be listened to.
Rheinhalle, Dusseldorf, West Germany 4/24/72 For however many Springs I got left this and the others are what I'll be listening to.
"Kids" from the band's debut EP, 'Time to Pretend'. An interesting release but nowhere near the level of 'Oracular Spectacular' or 'Congratulations'.
