Fillmore West 1969 abbreviated 3 disc set

Dark Star. Love this compilation and wish I'd taken the time to order the full ten disc set while it was first advertized. There is a confident rawness here that is just rising to maturity.

I gotta say, Parkas, I'm surprised that I like them, at least in a way. You're right, though, I got hooked seeing MMJ live before I ever heard an album. On the other hand, Circuital is one of my favorite albums of the past few years, so obviously once I "got" them, I "got" them.

RE: Jim James

I gotta say, gratefuldean, I've listened to several My Morning Jacket albums as well as Jim's solo record, and they don't do a thing for me. "Rolling Stone" raves and raves and RAVES about them, but I just don't hear what all the fuss is about. Sure, they're a very talented group of musicians, but their music feels very formulaic to me and not at all psychedelic.

They must be one of those bands you gotta see live. Studio albums just don't seem to do them justice.

Regions of Light and Sound of God

I have this nagging feeling that My Morning Jacket is going to go all Radiohead on me. This album doesn't do much to allay that fear. The fact that I like the album isn't much help, since I also liked "OK Computer," but hated "Kid A" and everything after.

Naahhh, it'll never happen. Will it?
