  1. butter Says:

    @BK – excellent Exile review, spot on, i concur

  2. BrandonKayda Says:

    Thanks butter!

  3. lycanthropist Says:


    yay i like cold part and stars are projectors.

  4. BrandonKayda Says:

    Moon and Antarctica is a strange album for me.

    I remember liking perfect disguise, gravity rides everything, tiny cites…, life like leeds, stars are projectors, dark center of the universe, wild pack…, and i came as a rat, but don’t remember the others

    I bought that album right as I was coming down from my Modest Mouse obsession, so maybe it is just me. I’ll listen again someday.

    I know that Lonesome Crowded West completely blew me away though, that is all I can say about that one

  5. DaNcInG fOoL Says:

    @Dr. P, favourite book on the dead is Phil’s

  6. gus Says:

    just listened to the great went gin on my very nice bose headphones… all i

    can say is it elevated my mood 500%

  7. Mr. Completely Says:

    ^^^ I agree with @f0ol

    “Playing in the Band” by Gans is enjoyable because it’s all photos and band quotes, not someone talking about the band. Incomplete, came out in 85-ish. Worthy. I’ve been cleaning kind bud and rolling spliffs on my copy for 15 years 😮

    The McNally book is a long read and dull at times but has a lot of good detail about the early years.

    “The Official Book of the Deadheads” is cool too.

    I’m a big fan of ’79 and ’85 but not as much the years between, so not a lot to offer from that era. 4-27-85 is a favorite from the latter part of that era, and 10-27-79 set 2 is a scorcher from the earlier part. There’s a lot of great music from 80-84 but not that many great complete shows IMO.

  8. Dr. Pronoia (ie, BK) Says:

    Thanks ‘Fool and MrC, I’ll spin that ’85 and let you know what I think. I’ve been rocking a lot of ’70s lately and want to try some 80s…

  9. Mr. Completely Says:

    there’s a lot of great ’85 shows, summer especially. 11-1-85 set 2 (a dicks pick) is right up there also.

    but ’89-90 is the part of that era that holds up best IMO

  10. Mr. Completely Says:

    I also have 2 Brent era mixes if you like mixes

    I’m replacing the individual MP3s with zipfiles right now actually…

  11. garretc Says:

    Just starting to listen to Gov’t Mule NYE show, and I was wondering if anyone else has had the pleasure of hearing their show at the warfield in SF w/ Les Claypool on bass? I’m not sure what year it was, as I lost the recording from my itunes when I got a new computer, but I can get a new copy from my dad sometime in the next couple weeks and try to get that out to anyone who’s interested… It’s really an amazing show

  12. Dr. Pronoia (ie, BK) Says:

    That sounds great MrC, let me know the names of the mixes and I’ll be happy to give them a listen…

  13. Lycanthropist Says:

    @Mr. C

    finally got around to downloading the Crest of the Wave

  14. Mr. Completely Says:

    Hm. You ok with AAC audio files? can play .m4a file type? or need mp3s?

  15. Lycanthropist Says:

    im good with those.

  16. Mr. Completely Says:

    I meant Dr. P, re: the Brent era mixes

    good to know tho 😮

    enjoy the ’77 stuff

  17. Lycanthropist Says:

    @Mr. C-

    Curious as to whats got your interest musically these days.. what do you find yourself spinning regularly

  18. Lycanthropist Says:

    @Mr. C

    whoops my bad

  19. Lycanthropist Says:

    @Mr. P

    listening to the live Modest Mouse now.

    Please dont let this be the first Modest Mouse you hear.

  20. Lycanthropist Says:

    not that its bad.. but it just isn’t doing it justice.

    its fun because there are some guest horns playing with them…

    but they truly are masters of the studio album.

  21. Mr. Completely Says:

    oh a Modest Mouse discussion? guess I missed it

    caught them live a couple times, fun stuff. a lot of bands sound kind of like them now but they’ve been around forever…

    I’m all about african music again right now @lycan. Tinariwen, Toumani Diabate, Youssou N’Dour, Salif Kieta, Tony Allen, Fela and Femi Kuti, King Sunny Ade, Samba Ngo, Blk Jks…

  22. Lycanthropist Says:

    i can dig that Mr. C

    jammed the hell out of the Fela Kuti show that was in that huge batch of stuff in the email

  23. Mr. Completely Says:

    yeah, thx again for that, just getting into those downloads

    with african music I am where I was with jazz like 15 years ago – only starting to get a clue, kind of know what I like but not really

    which is exciting but also means I am listening to (or skipping through) a lot of B and C list material

    like most genres, 10-20% of it is killer, a solid 25% just blows and most of the rest just kind of all sounds the same to me

    so I guess I’m in the exploratory phase

  24. Mr. Completely Says:

    I went through like 10 of these phases with 70s funk to end up with that What It Is! mix, that’s the eventual payoff here too, hopefully – a hundred songs or so of A list tracks in various styles

  25. Lycanthropist Says:

    yeah I jam that What It Is! mix quite often actually.. although no spontaneous disrobing yet.
