More like "best of lie"! No, not really. I just have to vent a little. A few months ago, this popped up for per-order from dead.net. I miss-read the listing and bought the vinyl, thinking it was a budget release with the same songs as the CD. Turns out it is volume 1 of 2, … Continue reading REVIEW: Grateful Dead- The Best of Live

So much fun each way; like you are producing an album yourself (sort of, anyway)! I present for your mix-tape enjoyment, … Continue reading COMPILATION: Grateful Dead- Workingman’s Live
Finishing out the last few hours at work right now while listening to a set from the cover band Joe Russo's Almost Dead. Nice Terrapin Suite (a.k.a. "Terrapin Part 1"). Surprising half hour version. Really wish The Grateful Dead would have played the more of the sequence. Guess that's a part of the void 'tribute … Continue reading Terrapin Suite
Average albums are the hardest to review. Nothing here is bad, but nothing is exceptional either. Chocolate Watchband's (now billed with "The" prefix) time had come and gone by 1969 and this album. Some line-up changes happened, though there was also contention over the heavy use of session musicians and studio smoothing, and the band … Continue reading REVIEW: The Chocolate Watchband- One Step Beyond
