Re: What Are You Listening To Now?

As I'm working from home I'm playing music that's loose and I can get lost in as background rather than listen to closely. To my surprise I've really got into Phish . I can almost hear people's eyeballs rolling in horror. Well, as a Deadhead I can relate to a lot of the noodly stuff they play. So I ...

Having read of the sad death of John Prine I've been immersed in his music for the last day or so. His name was familiar before but - to my shame - I'd never listened to his stuff previously.

Re: Moon Duo/Wooden Shjips

New Rose City Band tunes are sounding great. A neat country rock angle is noticeable here, with the 2nd tune tipping a hat to the Grateful Dead's classic 'Cumberland Blues'. But Ripley is something of a Deadhead so perhaps not too surprising.
