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.
British Murder Boys
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.
Used vinyl I just grabbed. I used to have a copy of this album, disappeared under mysterious circumstances, which is to say, I have no recollection of where it went. It definitely was a part of my "keyboard rock" period.
