I just downloaded a bunch of Dr. Dog albums. They are a band from Philly with great pop/rock songs and Beach Boy/Beatles-like harmonies. They have been making me smile ever since I found them, (which is about 3-4 years later than most of the people I have found that like them.) Check em' out! I am particularly fond of their albums "Easy Beat" and "Fate" right now... though the others are great too!
Right around Christmas, I decided to listen to every song on every album on my iPod and weed out the stuff I really like/want to keep from the stuff I can live without. With that said, here are a few albums I've absolutely fallen in with and listen to on a regular basis:
- "At Fillmore East (Deluxe Edition)" by The Allman Brothers Band
- "Warpaint Live" by The Black Crowes
- "Honey Pig" by Bosley
- "Safe as Milk" by Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band
- "Soul Exorcism Redux" by James Chance & the Contortions
- "Carnegie Hall" by Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention
- "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" by The Huntingtons
- "In the Court of the Crimson King" by King Crimson *200 gram vinyl ed.*
- "Hard Ways" by Los Duggans
- "Talking Songs for Walking/Necklace of Heads" by Lungfish
- "Dark Side of the Moon" by Pink Floyd
- "Complete Control Sessions" by Scream
- "Stretching Out" by The Skatalites
- "Univox" by Univox

I got my Dave's Pick CDs this afternoon and for some reason I can't seem to get the goofy grin off my face.
JEP - This is exactly what I need to hear today and I didn't even know it until they arrived and I loaded up the disks. Thank you!

We should swap Art Bell shows. Although it's not the same as it used to be, my wife and I fall asleep every night listening to Coast to Coast. I know I'm not the only one.
A friend of mine recently passed on an AWESOME
10/5/05 instant live recording of the Black Crowes at the 9:30 club. OUTSTANDING GIG. With that package he also passed on two Chris Robinson Brotherhood gigs and a copy of his second solo effort "This Magnificent Distance" and I can't get over them. Train Robbers is one of the greater tracks I have heard in a long time. I can't believe I went this long without getting into Chris' solo records.
and the ever-presents that NEVER leave my stereo
David Crosby-If I Could Only Remember my name
Paul Kantner-Blows Against The Empire
Moby Grape-Live Bootleg (official release from sundazed)
The Allman Brothers Band-One Way Out: An Evening at The Beacon Theatre
And for X-mas a friend gave me a flash drive with the complete Europe 72 recordings. That alone made me cry and I still haven't listened to all of them although I really dig the Rotterdam radio broadcast and Hamburg.
That's it for...this one.
Check out the excellent sequence of MD>PITB>UJB>PITB. I especially love the MD, as Jerry's vocals are strong and his playing superb - particularly in the last few minutes prior to transitioning into PITB1. Happy Friday!
I've really been digging Jesse McReynolds plays the songs of the Grateful Dead, a tributie to Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter. It's got a killer version of Birdsong and I think the best Alabamam Getaway I've ever heard. He's a bluegrass legend. Kind of ironic that Jerry use to follow him and his brother, Jim, around back in the day and now the teacher pays tribute to the follower.
I miss Art's show so much! I listened to him for years and just the sound of his voice and late night explorations were just amazing! Good idea!
I currently have the entire 72 boxset in my ipod. Took way to long to encode all the discs to mp3's. There's alos a ton of old Art Bell shows on there as well.
