I made a large trade for a

I made a large trade for a bunch of tapes a while back. This guy threw in a bunch of old Grateful Dead Hour recordings that he made. They had been collecting dust in my bedroom until I started going threw them to see what was there. Just listened to a cool interview with Ken Nordine. He and Dave Gans were reminiscing about covering the New Years show, 1990. Seemed like a wild time! Bungie jumpers from the ceiling!?
I've also been listening to an audience copy of the Jerry tribute show from the Gathering of the Vibes 2005. David gans was also on the bill that night, along with Dark Star, David Nelson, Peter Rowan, Donna Jean, and tons more. It was a great weekend! anybody else happen to be there?

I review cds for

I review cds for musesmuse.com, an indie singer/songwriter site, and I've just started downloading highlights from some of those discs: a great band from Duluth called Teague Alexy with the Feelin Band and a one-man band named Tim Hirons. I'll keep you posted, as these are artists who need to be heard.
As far as GD, I've got a monster Scarlet>Fire from 3/88, a nice, revved up Jack Straw>Franklin's from 80, highlights from Without a Net (1/2 Step, Eyes, Help>Slip>Frank), Brent's Gentlemen Start Your Engines, Fallout from Phil Zone, highlights from Postcards of the Hanging (Ballad of a Thin Man!).
Cool stuff: Willie Nelson's reggae tunes, Kung Fu Fighting, Desmond Dekker's reggae classic Israelites, Manhattans' version of "Shining Star," Jayhawks 2nd disc Tomorrow the Green Grass ...

Cow Palace 12.31.76

Just got this.
Real into it.
Very interesting.
Powerful with some far frikin out jams; Playin and Slipknot (well Slipknot, Spanish jam tease) are as weird as I have ever heard them.
Scarlet is awesome.

Cheers!

>>>trance<<<

ambient/trance space music.

(play it thru winamp on yer computer)
here:

The Drone Zone
http://64.236.34.97:80/stream/1032

(just go to "Play", and then "URL", and paste this web address in to the dialog box...)

even though now, i work at home... and the only co-worker i have is my 2-yr old grandson...
yet, when i worked in a conventional "office" a few years ago, people would walk by and ask, "what is it that you're listening to...?"

i've always been a HUGE fan of the dead's "space" segments... so, this e-radio broadcast site is KILLER (for me anyways).

tune it in... space out.
