    Best Box of Rain

    I think the same could be said about Unbroken Chain, yes? Is there a live version that tops the recorded one?

    Best Box of Rain

    Yes, by far the best Box (musically and sonically) was on American Beauty

    RIP Hal Blaine

    One of the best studio drummers ever has passed. Pet Sounds, Elvis and countless other recorded classics to his credit.

    The Who

    The main reason I would venture out to see the Who these days would be to watch Zac Starkey on drums...…terrific stuff

    Why a ‘77 sounds different than an ‘85

    Interesting topic......I've often wondered the same thing. For instance, I can identify a Spring '77 recording within 5 seconds every time. There's a spaciousness and arena-like cavernous quality to this tour, especially on Garcia's vocals. The drums sound is a give away as well......shimmery cymbal sound and spacious playing with lots of 8th notes on the ride cymbal (instead of riding the hi-hat). Then there's the absolute confidence and musical command of each of the musicians. Apparently this can at least partly be credited to Keith Olson, who demanded that the band do exhaustive repeated takes of the songs on Terrapin Station...….so the band was super well rehearsed and ready for the Spring '77 tour. But it all changed by Fall '77......poof
