I finally got out and bought a few CDs this last week:

Neil Young's "Living With War" tops the list.....it's pure, raw, unadulterated Neil. Like we expected anything else.

Live offering of the batch: Phish's "New Year's Eve 1995 with Phish", an absolutely stellar recording of one of Phish's all time greatest performances. I'm most pleased with Phish's relationship with the Rhino label, which seems to be consistently good in terms of sonics - no matter what the artist. Coming in July: a DVD and CD set (offered separately): "Phish: Live in Brooklyn" - a 2 DVD set and a 3 CD set of Phish from June of 2004, also on Rhino.

Sweet!! I knew my day would come.

This week, I'm gonna be suggesting an album that's been out for some years now, but since they're going back on tour again worldwide, it's only appropriate to bring their best album back into the hearts and minds of all loyal followers, and soon-to-be converts. Which, I promise you, you shall be once you give this album a listen. An album which, besides hitting #1 on billboards back in its day, was almost unanimously rated a perfect score by every industry publication or web review forum.

Radiohead "OK Computer" - Progressive/Experimental/Electronic Rock LP or CD.

Henry Mancini (April 16, 1924 June 14, 1994), was a noted American composer and arranger. He is remembered particularly for being a composer of film and television scores, and won a record number of Grammy awards (including a "Lifetime Achievement" award in 1995).

He was born Enrico Nicola Mancini in Cleveland, Ohio, and grew up in the Pittsburgh suburb of West Aliquippa, Pennsylvania.

Although he was drafted into the Army during World War Two, Mancini was able to get a transfer from the infantry to the band. The compositions for which he is best known include "Moon River" (the theme song from the 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffany's), and the theme music for the 1963 films The Pink Panther and Charade. Interestingly, he also wrote a score for the Alfred Hitchcock film Frenzy (1972) that was ultimately rejected.

He is often credited with composing the music for the Peanuts movies, the well-known theme Linus and Lucy in particular. However, these songs were composed and performed by another esteemed jazz pianist, Vince Guaraldi. Although much of Mancini's work can be classified as easy listening, he was capable of writing powerful and rousing scores such as that for Lifeforce.

Two of his earliest scores were for the TV shows, Peter Gunn (1958) and Mr. Lucky (1959). A notable addition later in his career was the theme song to the sitcom Newhart (1982), as well as the music to the 1986 Disney blockbuster The Great Mouse Detective.

He died at age 70 in Beverly Hills, California of pancreatic cancer.

Steve_L right on with the Who, one of the top ten live albums, dead on about the Bass lines in Magic Bus, the OX was one of the Best.........Where are you staying at Americade, that's like my back yard Lake George, about 20 minutes to my house,beautiful upstate N.Y...............

Still in the 70's......can't seem to get away..........One of Boston's own

the J. GEILS BAND...........BLOODSHOT....................CD

This is my personal favorite by the Geils Band, from the opening notes of House Party to the last note of Give it to Me, this disc never stops filling your room with fun. This is a fine band that just rocks the house with a blues based, high energy attack that doesn't let up. Peter Wolf is a great frontman, and the perfect guy to spur this band on,J. Geils on guitar, Magic Dick on harp, Danny Klein on bass, Seth Justman on keyboards,and the great Stephan Jo Bladd on drums. To me this is almost like 50's music on acid, it has the older feel,but 70's energy. Aerosmith, the Cars, Boston, all called Boston home, but to me,the J. Geils Band was Boston's Best.........

Hi Oldbuckster! I'm on the Rt 9 north side someplace, I need to check.. my buddy rented a house up there for the week and I'm just gonna crash on the floor with a bunch of biker fender fluff thay is gonna be there... how's that sound?! I know, pretty 1969 trashy! dontchya' love it!!

I'm actually not sure how many days I'm going to stay up there.. depends on the weather and the fender fluff and all sorts of other details.. but pop I'll let you know and maybe I can swing by if I'm in the area.. so somethin.. one of the nicest riding areas in the Northeast that's for sure.

I liked your J Geils pick too. Full House was my favorite.. just because it was from 1971 and I was really in my college kid, hippie, blues loving, rock, crank it up, glory.

Rock on buddy!! Crank it up and ride safe!

Van Morrison, Live in Sanfrancisco ,CD, R&B

Van's best live (recorded) performance to date. Lots of special guests, Candy Dalfer, Jimmy Witherspoon and many others. Van's daughter Shana sings backup on some songs with the voice of angel.

Happy Friday! [:)]

Work: Six Sonatas for Oboe and Bassoon

Genre: Classical (late Baroque)

Composer: Jan Dismas Zelenka

Performer: Danny Bond, Robert Kohnen, et al.Label: Accent RecordsAudio CD

Number of Discs: 2ASIN: B00000442N

Oboes and Bassoons seem a nutural for horn-loaded speakers. This is a

wonderfully lively performance of some of the delightful work of the

sorely neglected composer Zelenka, "The Bohemian Bach".
