"Great idea for a blog. I can think of a few moments: Being there when the members of what became Buffalo Springfield ran into one another in a traffic jam in LA. Being at the session when Kooper and Bloomfield backed Dylan on "Like a Rolling…"
"I will always remember the night the Smothers Brothers put Pete on their variety show, I think it was a weekend night, in February 1968 during the peak of the Viet Nam war protests. The Brothers at the time were on the edge of what TV would slide…"
"Well, somebody here said, Springsteen ain't in Dylan's league. Musically, that is a good argument, but this is something else. Dylan is acting in this commercial. You think he wrote this? Bullshit, it was Madison Avenue execs who…"
"My reaction really hasn't changed: Pete Seeger's body was still warm and Bob D, writer of 'Blowin' in the Wind' whether he likes it or not considered by many an icon of a generation, sold out. The Super Bowl is more…"
"Now to hear the "Allmans Sound" I'll have to check out the spots on the Trucks Band and Govt Mule albums with Greg Allman singing; there is usually about one track per disc. Jim M pointed out yesterday that the discs with Warren and…"
"It is kind of fascinating to see a lot of folks here dismissing Mitchell. I don't think you can call her the female Dylan, but that Court and Spark album was a masterpiece and she did five before it that were very, very good music-despite her…"
"I'm a pretty big fan of Dylan and I thought a fan of Mitchell since I have all of her albums, and 30 of Dylan's. I always have heard that Mitchell isn't ever going to win personality of the year (nor will Bobby), but do you think that…"
"If you like Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers and similar road blues outfits you should check out San Diego's Black Market III. A recent band built around a veteran bluesman in power-trio format. They rock.
"I don't go to nearly as many shows as when I was younger, but have been to several shows where the sets were around 40 to 45 minutes. Once was Jean Luc Ponty in the mid '70s at a club at a college, at the same college, at a show in the…"
"I don't think you need to become an audiophile to get the most out of vinyl LPs, but it is worth a few bucks to get a good direct drive turntable with a decent cartridge, and run it through an amp and speakers that will give some range. I have…"
"I freely admit that the politics expressed in a song has a lot to do with whether I will like it, or the singer/writer. I think roots music should express progressive politics, and the more socialist the tone, the better. This music should be…"
"I really like Jim M's analysis. For me, Americana music is a broad category that is uniquely "American" since in some way it all can be traced back to songs played by workers in the fields or hills in the 19th Century in the…"
