"I think this album will be my justification for spending $300 (or is it $3,000?) on Neil Young's P0no (or is it Porno?).
But I do agree with you Stevie....Short Sharp Shocked and Arkansas Traveler are both noteworthy. "
"Lucky beat me to Woody but nearly everything off of his Dust Bowl Ballads will do. My favorite has always been "I Ain't Got No Home in this World Anymore" ("A Hot Dusty Road that a Million Feet have Trod").
"Great topic Jeremy but I don't think you "should" have to love anyone. I prefer to think of it as artist that seem to be in your wheelhouse but doesn't quite make it for you. The equivalent of Amazon and Netflix…"
"I actually mention BB in the Greg Allman post I wrote before I saw this. I've seen BB King 6 times and only half the shows were what I would consider good shows.
It's quite simple - he shouldn't be playing 250+ nights a…"
"My ultimate Greg vocal performance - Dreams.
My ultimate Greg show - Opening for BB King at the old Ritz in NYC. It was one of those nights when you realize BB shouldn't be playing 300+ nights a year. He may have been phoning…"
"Thanks for taking this on Terry. A Music HOF is even more subjective than a Sports Hall - and even those have gone off the track the last few years in my opinion - so its always a tough call. To me, you would have to start with the…"
"Wow - these guys seem like they would be an awesome band to see live! I just followed a link to their Youtube channel and saw them do a cover of "Jump into the Fire". Unfortunately, they don't seem to come North that often…"
Thanks Rudyjeep for the apology. It was the way you dismissed the whole Baby Boomer generation as hypocritical that got to me when only a minority were pacifists in the first place. I do think it was the draft that so motivated so many of my generation to protest the war since there is something evil about a government that felt it had the right to force teenagers to become killers or be killed in a war that made no sense. For that very reason I think our current wars would have been more vigurously protested if the draft was still intact. As it is, it is a little harder to condemn the government for utilizing an army that has volunteered for such service. Of course, many of those in the service joined as a last resort in a world of little opportunity but it's not the same as being legally forced into that position. It would take mass desertions and protests by the armed services itself to have the same impact that our protests had in the Viet Nam era. And you're right, after 9/11 many went over to the dark side to embrace revenge rather than less destructive ways to respond to that attack. I personally lost my best friend because of his political about face.
Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your recent comments here on No Depression. It means a lot to the folks who blog and post other content here to know that it's being noticed and appreciated. Since the majority of content on this site is crowd-sourced, community involvement is what makes everything here on ND possible. So, thanks again for taking the time to post comments - we really appreciate it!
I had a radio show on crcfm in Castlebar, Ireland, for a couple of years after leaving the 100, ooo watt giant here in the South, but I was working full-time and it wore my ass out. I've been getting come-ons from a new station in the West of Ireland recently, and I may try it again.
I have never done anything that was closer to my heart than radio. I love it, love the invisible-ness of it, the voices, the music, and how they invade our hearts when we're alone.
ND is a great site and I've missed the chance to talk about my love of music and radio for a long time. Hope we meet someday. I live in the Florida Panhandle along the wild Gulf of Mexico. Maggie and I have a monthly gathering at our seven acre spread we call Maggie's Farm. It's walking distance from one of the most pristine and beautiful creeks in the South. People come from around the world to canoe/kayak/tube it. It's called Econfina Creek.
Good to spend time with you, and a pleasure to meet you on this august site. Here's hoping it's (paraphrasing Bogart in Casablanca) the beginning of a great friendship.
