Re: Recent CD Purchases

Hard to justify spending $100 on the 4 disc version, but the completest in me really wants the whole shebang. iTunes has a 'deluxe' edition for $30 but it doesn't include the remastered Self Portrait , only the 2CD Another Self Portrait and Isle Of Wight sets. Wonder if they'll eventually reissue Se...

Re: Recent CD Purchases

Was lucky enough to visit Amoeba Records in San Francisco last week. I had only been to the Hollywood location, which is larger, but still managed quite a haul: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/6/62/GillianWelch_HellAmongTheYearlings.jpg/220px-GillianWelch_HellAmongTheYearlings.jpg htt...

RIP Clarence Clemons

Completely gutted by this one. The thought of so many of those great Springsteen classics without The Big Man's sax lines and stage presence is a tough thought to accept. "Jungleland"... "Tenth Avenue Freeze Out"... "Bobby Jean"... "Sherry Darling".. "Spi...

Re: Recent CD Purchases

Picked up two compilations, one's a collection of Allen Toussaint's early recordings, production work and songs written for other artists. The other is a very thorough compilation by Lee Dorsey (in so much as it even includes a few Coca-Cola jingles!). Obviously there are a few songs that appear on ...

Re: Favorite Albums Of 2011 (So Far)

Hello! Yes, it's really me. Thought I'd pay you good folks a visit and submit some of my favourites so far for consideration. Eager to pick up the new albums by Those Darlins and Dawes, two bands I discovered this year, but for now here are some of my other favourites: Middle Brother - Middle Brothe...

Re: Blue Chair and Redshoes expecting!!!

It's true! Red and I are expecting our first child... gender to be determined. Red is about 4 months along and is doing fabulously. Incidentally enough, at the end of the week that started with us sharing our news with the masses the two of us were off to Italy on a big family trip. Having just retu...

Haven't posted on this thread (or any thread) in a while, so I thought I'd share some of my recent acquisitions: Exile On Main Street (Deluxe Edition) by The Rolling Stones. Couldn't decide between the CD or vinyl... ended up going with the CD due to the bonus tracks, even though I suspect I will on...

Re: Elvis Costello - Special Free Opportunity!‏

I suspect the 50 pairs got snapped up within the first half hour of that e-mail going out. Maybe even within the first 10 minutes. And I suspect those who got it heard back pretty quickly, but hopefully that's not the case and we both got in. I was making a pretty conscious effort of keeping my eyes...

Re: Spectacle season 2

So I'm to believe that in three days time there's another Spectacle taping in Toronto, but no details about it?

Maybe this is the Paul McCartney one and it's a closed set?

Went to see Wilco last night at the historic Massey Hall.

Re: Beatles remasters

I don't have Let It Be or Yellow Submarine yet so I can't comment on either of those. However, I'm definitely noticing a difference on the albums I have picked up so far (everything except for Let It Be , Yellow Submarine , Magical Mystery Tour and Past Masters at this point). Purists say go for the...
