I assume there are other people here who remember hearing "Grazing" -- and "Mas Que Nada", for that matter -- on top 40 radio in the 60s. Looking back on that now, it blows me away. A kid from the burbs could turn on AM radio and hear soul, funk, boogaloo -- whatever was selling. We were so dumb! We had no idea that we had to be carefully divided into demographic sub-markets and stay within the lines. We actually thought we could listen to whatever sounded good enough to sell. The nerve of us!

Early Tull! Cool!
Hi all, here for a bit...
  Wed. 1/24/18 10:29pm Dean:

Yes, Parq, I know that experience. I think I gained perspective from the fact that many of my friends had older siblings whose record collections informed what I heard. Even if those albums included AM and FM playlist songs, I was exposed to the albums as works in themselves. That taught me that there was more out there than what commercial radio had to offer.

i recorded a dead performance being "simulcast" over wnewfm c.1979 (capital theatre?)onto 8-track tape. Jerry was sick and as he's the only good vocalist after Pig Pen died the show wasn't worth saving, in my opinion.

Because I attended every Dead show I've seen many worst shows. Hard to rank them.

One Dead show, Boston Garden '77. Fascinating to me how well shows are remembered and ranked by the devoted. Interesting that that particular show is ranked fairly well...but, at one and done, I can't grade it myself .
I saw the jet motorcycle, jet car and jet go-kart at Epping Raceway in NH!

Hearing about Joan even swiping her sister's material when they were young left a lingering grudge in my regard.

If you like Branford with the Dead, try David Murray.

Parq (@11.06) grateful dead were/are just another band to me. i have 11/2 - 2 dozen albums, saw them once; seen some offshoots...if i was going to become obsessed with a band there're at least 100 that i'd sooner follow around and put reality on hold for.

s b/p, there just weren't many stinkers in '77.

David Murray did a whole album of Grateful Dead music, very cool CD.

Yes, and he sat in at MSG in '93.

ifny, not that any 2 people who are passionate about music will agree on everything, but -for the record, in case you thought i was talking about Amy Winehouse, i consider her a modern Great. her voice was real and direct, generally without the histrionics that EVERYONE on the billboard top 100 employs (female, last i checked) and no autotune. i Love her and the loss is a tragedy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 11:26pm Funky16Corners:

I agree completely. A big loss.

@Uncle Michael Yay Internet Archive! I had sushi there once.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 11:33pm ifny:

@coelacanth I have yet to disagree with you about everything :) For the record yes I thought you were talking about Winehouse. Agreed about her voice and her loss. Burned bright, fast and furiously. And what a songwriter!
Avatar Wed. 1/24/18 11:34pm still b/p:

After only hearing about Amy's troubles in media bits and pieces before I'd heard any of the music, I was pleasantly taken with a loaned Back in Black. Had to get it. Read something a few years ago that compared her to Adele, was it?...and saying Amy's R&B and soul was mostly retro-gurgitation and appropriation and therefore had to be relegated to some second status. While Amy was an obvious borrower and close deriver, sweet jesus, I thought of the writer, give it a rest and get over yer self-strokin' self! And enjoy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 11:35pm Funky16Corners:

Of all the retro-soul being made, hers was backed up with great songs and of course the mighty Daptones
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 11:36pm ifny:

I think of Winehouse more as a palimpsest. Her live performances get me every time. Big bad broken heart.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 11:39pm ifny:

Always struck me as odd to call it blue eyed soul when she's a Jewish sister...
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 11:41pm doctorjazz:

More Miles-love these complete sessions of the Miles electric beginnings, the whole sessions sound so different than the edited album issues.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 11:41pm coelacanth∅:

yeah Sharon Jones another modern Great; but a whole different animal in regard to the lives they led/were dealt; the ways they seemed to process it.
...but...who the fuck would compare Amy to Adele?! somebody's not listening.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 11:42pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, love that set all the way through, I actually have 45s from In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 11:46pm ifny:

@coelacanth I recently came across Sharon Jones, a live performance with a Prince cameo. I was blown away! She's also a legend. I could *not* comprehend her ability to shake *all* the tailfeathers and singing powerfully the whole time. Magical!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 11:47pm ifny:

Wish I'd known about her in time to see her live.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 11:47pm Funky16Corners:

She and Charles Bradley were the two finest modern soul singers in the classic style, and they're both gone
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 11:48pm ifny:

Thanks Funky, looking him up now. Wow, from the Guardian obit: "He did not record his first single until 2002, and made his debut album only in 2011."
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 11:49pm coelacanth∅:

ha i was just going to say that! i'm sure i had chances to see her perform but was too caught up with my world of shit to get off the pot and go dance.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 1/24/18 11:50pm ifny:

Well there are a few epic singers around in case you get away from your world of shit before they're gone ;) Diamanda Galas comes to mind.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 1/24/18 11:50pm coelacanth∅:

yeah Charles is another. someone in the pub played his version of that Ozzy song about a month ago and said i'm buying a shot for anyone who knows who this is. i, unfortunately was the only one.

Hans-Joachim Roedelius performed and lectured at the college in my town a few months ago, for very little fee; but i couldn't not work. he's 83. i don't think i'll ever see him.

@coel anyway, they're young and probably vegan, they should be around for some years yet, so you can always catch them later.

@coel: you should definitely charge it. $15 for that much morale is a small price to pay. If I'm ever in NY I'll treat you to an expensive sandwich to make up the cost :P
