I mean, I've been listening (hard) to the Beatles for over 20 years now. It's difficult to pull the music out of the audio wallpaper most of the time. I watched Help! with my 12 year-old son for the first time yesterday--talk about a way to peel off the wallpaper..."The Night Before" is n...

Wow! Great recording. I saw them about 3 weeks before this. They definitely sound more sober here.

I didn't like it initially, preferring the stellar Days Of Wine And Roses instead. But then I left the cassette of Medicine Show in my car and was forced to spin it. It ended up getting played repeatedly...the elixir of Wynn's take on Crazy Horse finally sunk in. My response when it came out was pr...

Sadly, Medicine Show hasn't made it to cd even in ages. It's been rumored to be re-released for a long time but not yet. There are a couple of $85 used copies on Amazon--unbelievable!

8 Songs Left...

I have 8 songs left in my emusic free trial. I can't think of any 8 song albums that I want, and I'm stumped. Does anyone want to recommend stuff for me to burn through what's left of my free trial? Here's my Last.fm profile if you're willing.

I think I got there from a link on the GloNo front page to a Tom Waits show from 1975, or have I completely lost it? Really sad to see the site go away.

Damn, if Wincing isn't pretty great, too. And, Return to the Seais next on my list to get. I've got a birthday next week that I have to get past before I can buy anything else, though.

Mine is "Don't Call Me Whitney, Bobby" by Islands that was on the front page. Must get it out of my head. I'm with you guys on the new Hold Steady though. I still listen to it probably 4 days a week. The first half does seem stronger, but I love "Massive Nights" and "Chill-o...
