  2. Maple Leaf Rag - Scott Joplin https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pMAtL7n_-rc My grandfather was born in 1885 so he used to play very old school tunes. FWIW, I'm still in my 40's. Weird math I know but still the earliest tune I remember loving...

    Top 10 albums

    Ah yes... the Top 10 albums thread. Been started and discussed since the dawn of... well... the late 60's. The answer has consistently boiled down to Led Zeppelin's first six albums. Yes, all six are in the all time Top 10. If this answer raises suspicion, please listen to those albums closely before responding. The remaining slots belong to Purple Rain, Rastaman Vibration, Appetite for Destruction and Straight out of Compton. Kudos for the above starheads for nailing the last two on the list.

    Free Bird?

    For Phish songs you'll need to go check out our brother JK. You tube his tunes like Fast Enough for You and the Wedge as good examples. Speaking of Phish, I agree that their acapella version of Freebird was the right response to years of catcalls. I might have have been guilty of one of those shout outs at DSO but (in my defense) it would've been 15+ years ago. Would love to see TN get rebirthed at some point. Those shows were lots of fun. Where else would you hear Mississippi Queen? Lastly, nice work on the site TR. You are and have always been... the man!

    Jeff Mattson and Friends Ardmore Pa Setlist

    Rob, would you please consider blending Valley Road into a setlist down the road? Think you would sound solid on it.

    Dead and co has lost their mind

    Interesting link. Amazing what deadheads will buy. My guess is most buyers may not even know much about the GD. I happen to own a handful of collared shirts from this designer. They make awesome stuff and their clothes are very well made but it's definitely pricey. Feel free to throw stones but there's actually one long sleeve on there I don't completely hate...

    And if I say to you tomorrow. Take my hand, child, come with me. It's to a castle I will take you, where what's to be, they say will be. Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky. But the wind won't blow, you really shouldn't go, it only goes to show That you will be mine, by takin' our time. And if you say to me tomorrow, oh what fun it all would be. Then what's to stop us, pretty baby. But What is and what should never be. Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky. But the wind won't blow, you really shouldn't go, it only goes to show That you will be mine, by takin' our time. So if you wake up with the sunrise, and all your dreams are still as new, And happiness is what you need so bad, girl, the answer lies with you. Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky. But the wind won't blow, you really shouldn't go, it only goes to show That you will be mine, by takin' our time. Oh the wind wont blow and we really shouldn't go and it only goes to show. Catch the wind, we're gonna see it spin, we're gonna... sail, little girl do do do, bop bop a do-oh, my my my my my my yeah. Everybody I know seems to know me well but they're never gonna know that I move like hell.

    Phil + Bobby / Together Again

    My guess is a set of Bob cowboy tunes with (maybe) the National guys, then a brief 4-5 tune set with just Bob and Phil and then a set of Phil and the family band. Phil and Bob trade turns opening, closing. Have fun but no spot taken.

    Red Rocks 2018!!

    After all these years... I may actually be able to fly out for this show for a variety of reasons. My only disappointment is WHY announce the show in advance. Not knowing is one of the most important parts of a DSO show. Also hoping for an early start. Never miss a Sunday show.

    Caught JRAD for the first time last weekend at the Fab Fox in Oakland. Going in with low expectations despite the local hype, I came away highly impressed. I can be as critical at times as most Heads but a couple things stood out. First off, all five of these guys are outstanding musicians (same as DSO). Secondly, these "fast" tempo that folks talk about isn't necessarily true from my perspective. They hit the gas pedal when appropriate and play all the way through the jams (also as needed). However on slower tunes (Candyman, Loser), I felt they had a delicate touch and treated the music with total respect and understanding. I came away highly impressed and will absolutely see them again. BTW, show was completely sold out and tix we're in high demand. I see why now.
