Some recent purchases
Out To Lunch
Buy this album right now. I'm not joking.
|2||Bob Marley & The Wailers|
I didn't have any Marley yet and that had to be fixed. Haven't listened to this one yet but I'm looking forward to it, maybe on 4/20 YEEAAAAH!

Complete Winterland '73 Box Set
9 cd's of premium dead, the complete three show winterland run of 1973. 11/9/73, 11/10/73 and 11/11/73 have never sounded so good. Even if you already have soundboards of these shows, the sonic upgrade is worth it, especially for 11/9/73 which always had that annoying hiss. 11/10 has a phenomenal playing in the band > uncle john's band > morning dew > uncle john's band > playing in the band which can not be missed. 11/11 has what is widely considered a top 5 dark star, and the mind left body jam it melts into sends chills down my spine.
All Things Must Pass
The songs on here are awesome, the production is not. I really wish that Phil Spector hadn't produced this, or at least that Harrison had remixed it like he alludes to in the cd liner notes.
|5|| ||Carlos Santana|
Santana playing A Love Supreme with Alice Coltrane? That was all it took for me to pick this one up. It's pretty good although the orchestration is a bit overwhelming at times.
|6||The Flaming Lips|
The Soft Bulletin
I already had this album but someone borrowed it and then moved five states over. This is one of my favorite cd's so I had to buy a replacement.

|8|| ||Grateful Dead|
Three From The Vault
Pretty good, considering a lot of the performances are the first and second ever outings of the songs.
Gwine dig a hole and put the devil in
Leadbelly is the man, just look at that song title!
|10|| ||Carlos Santana|
Kind of disappointing, the sound quality is terrible and a lot of the music is uninspiring. I find that I only like very limited periods of Santana's career.
|11|| ||Lee Morgan|
Haven't listened to this yet, but I'm looking forward to it.
|12|| ||John Coltrane|
My Favorite Things: John Coltrane at Newport
My Favorite Things by Coltrane is one of my favorite songs of all time. The drastic difference between the two performances shows how much JC was evolving.
