    Listening to 89.9 FM classic jazz while I clean up my turntable a bit. I like this station, it’s got a little bit of everything in it. :)

    Yes I know I need to clean up a bit, that’s the next project on the list. :)

    Trying a F1nut post:
    Listening to Animals-Pink Floyd
    Specifically Dogs
    Bass and middle guitar riffs are surrounding me completely. Subtle hints of the piano/organ pop in and out from the background. Transitions into the dog barking actually sounds like it’s coming from outside. Guitars come back in and dominate you he landscape. The new guitar sound really honed on Wish You Were Here.
    Back in with the vocals now and the harmonizing in the chorus seems to be almost liquid like.
    Love this band for a chill Saturday after one kick **** day or Eggtoberfest and sporting clay shooting (yes both today :) )

    My old buddy Ricky D!
  • dromundsdromunds Posts: 7,451
    Yeah, Rick could rock! Saw him in a little bar in the mid to late 70's called The Rafters, and there were literally people hanging onto the rafters, he blew the roof off the mother! That was after playing with Johnny of course, and maybe Edgar (?) If Rick played with Edgar in the mid-70's I saw him then also but for some reason I can't remember much about that concert. Lol.

    I saw him in Sarasota, Florida in '82; Burlington, Vermont in '84; and Colchester, Vermont in '93. "Derringer Live" was my favorite album in high school. (At least after friends of my parents threw my copy of "Kiss Alive II" into their fireplace. In retrospect, they did me a favor.) :'( >:) :p

    Now listening to Scarface's recent bside release "Deeply Rooted The Lost Files". I'm sure this will lead to some classic Geto Boys records.

    The Allman Brothers Band 'Eat a Peach' BMG D-163353 CD
    Oddly, the CD says it is made in England. Everything
    else is made in USA. Sounds good to me.
    Source is a Sony BDP-2000 using the front L/R analog outs
    into a Denon 4520ci to 703's. Modest cables.
