Happy Birthday Bob!

Another year, another countless hours spent listening to the amazing Bob Dylan. The older he and I get, the more magic I pull from his words. What a blessing to have his art created in our time!

Bruce Horsnby Honors Levon Helm

Taken from the New Orleans Jazz Fest a couple weeks ago, watch this marvelous tribute to the great Levon Helm from the also-great Bruce Hornsby. So nice!

Now I get it......

Just wow!

Here is 6 long minutes of Art Garfunkel pontificating to the producer during the recording of his 1992 solo album. Now I completely understand why Paul Simon fled to Africa to do "Graceland"! I must be a total geek, because I loved every minute of this.

This unfortunatly won't embed, but click here to listen!

Summer's Here and the Time is Right!

Ok not exactly summer yet, but the warm temperatures in Wisconsin have gotten me into a Grateful Dead mood of late.

One of the best shows from an over-looked touring year, October 17, 1983 is a serious gem from Lake Placid, NY. A smoker from start to finish; the highlights include some epic Jerry, sleighing lengthy versions of "Sugaree", "Bird Song", and the always awesome "Terrapin Station". A sloppy encore of The Beatles "Revolution" is just icing on the cake. As a longtime listener and collector, this is honestly one of the greatest shows in their amazing 30 year history.

Crank it up nice and loud!!
