LOST Discussion Thread:

In order to preserve everyone’s personal journey through the six seasons of LOST, I have created a specific post/thread to discuss this week’s episode. Keeping LOST discussion to this location will keep people who are behind from reading spoilers – because that is the worst. Please respect this and keep all show commentary in the previous post.


Jam of the Day:

2001 > Simple” 11.18.96 II

This is one of the first jammed out “2001’s,” coming before Trey began playing ’97 funk licks – a psychedelic combination. And the “Simple,” included on the extra disc of “Vegas ’96,” is simply sublime.

  3. Selector J Says:

    “what comes first the melt or the storm?”

    if I remember correctly, lots of wind leading up to Melt
    and then begins to pour during Melt (with lots of wind still according to the tapes.)

    you were probably dryer than the band. it got a little interesting when they start pulling the tarp over the piano…

  4. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    I was melting before, during, and after that storm. They rode the storm as long as they couldwith that SOAM jam before it wasn’t safe to be out there anymore. I ended up standing there for the entire break. I still want to know who the setbreak music was, because it was pretty freaking good to me that night.

  5. albert walker Says:

    the owlsey AUD sounds killer

    would like to get the whole show of that source

    great Dark Star

  6. albert walker Says:

    loving these 3 piece shows
    just erase the acoustic set

    as a shitty guitarist I love listening to him fill the space of a 3 piece
    cool to hear early versions of all these songs

    I think I saw 4 shows in the midwest
    remember them being real fun

    downloaded the Wisconsin and the Riviera show
    sound great

  7. sumodie Says:

    Speaking of HOB, did anyone go to the moe. show Friday? My wife’s sister went and said the line to get in backed up two parking garages down in front of the venue and they got there near show time.

    thats enough of a reminder/warning that id like to get inside somewhat early as i have a gen adm ticket.

    also saw a sick line b4 a soldout tDB show last winter (no, i didnt attend).

  8. Mr. Completely Says:

    @Marshall – this set is the proggiest/shreddiest in GD history IMO

    Kezar stadium ’75

    also you should check out live versions of The Eleven and any live Eyes of the World from 73-74, specifically the long jam at the end of the song, after the verses

  9. Miles Raymond Says:

    One of the few times I can say I am glad to be living in CT this winter. Tickets are in for the Trey NYC and Oakdale show, and Mike Gordon in New Haven in a month! Anyone else attending these shows?

  10. Mr. Completely Says:

    Fall 1972 Dark Stars are siiiiiiiiick

    a lot of unique thematic jams in that run

    Bear was, among many other things, the first great live audience taper

    his recordings of Old and In the Way are the earliest AUDs in history that hold up as A+ today, I think

    now he’s a silversmith and jeweler, Bear is, and a good one

    bad web design, and the photos don’t do the jewelry justice. it’s really really good. a lot of dead fam members have pieces, I have seen many of them, they’re all great.

  11. Mr. Completely Says:

    all phish fans who are interested in Dead music at all should hear that Kezar ’75 set I posted above

    fo realz

    the filler in there is good too, some studio outtake stuff

  12. Lycanthropist Says:

    @Mr. C

    did you ever get a chance to check that 1 21 show?

  13. albert walker Says:

    now I got my Ann Arbor show
    just have to figure out the 4th show I saw

    I’m tellin you some of this 99 3 piece shit is the fire

    this Jibboo from 5/8/99 (nice date) is just nasty

  14. albert walker Says:

    don’t think I’ve heard that one C
    have to check it out

    Jerry’s chops were in fine form when they came back in 75
    did some serious jazz fusion studying during that mid 70’s Legion period

    some of the early Help > Slips are just crazy hot

  15. butter Says:

    @AW – we saw you guys under that tarp pile, thought it was pretty funny, could see the smoke billowing out of the tarp

    we were just testing our rain gear, lit, staring at each other
    with shit eating grins, a couple friends were fresh off the plane from san fran with no raingear and had those clear or yellow disposable poncho’s and added to our ridiculous look

    all our girls had scampered off somewhere for drier cover… wherever that was

  16. SillyWilly Says:

    Thanks for posting the TSU show, Lycan.

  17. Lycanthropist Says:

    hope you enjoy Silly

    there are quite a lot of debuts in there so it should be interesting!

  18. Leo Weaver Says:

    hey butter, what’s going on?!? Seems like you mentioned some kind of beer (Russian River brewery or something maybe?) a few nights ago…what was it again? What are some good micros from out your way? I was in my beer store after work today and saw a few new west coasters/NorCalis in the cooler. Russian River Imperial Stout maybe and several others.

  19. SillyWilly Says:

    awesome…im driving to cleveland tomorrow night. Im starting after 7pm so Ill use that TSU show to keep me awake.

    I know Im not Mr. C or anything but I thought the CF show from 1-21 was awesome. Your original stuff is great and I love the covers you guys pick.

    I wish I could give some sort of musically technical analysis, but fwiw from some dude named Silly, I really like your music.

  20. Lycanthropist Says:

    Thanks @Silly

    your input is just as appreciated as anyone else’s

    im glad you dug it.

  21. Leo Weaver Says:

    hot boxin’ a 3-tarp tent…I love improvisation

  22. SillyWilly Says:

    I just realized how that could have sounded. @Mr. C I meant that out of no jealousy, but out pure respect for your opinion. People like you and Lycan and lots of others on the board, really make me want to learn a lot more about music than just being a fanatic of one band.

  23. Mr. Palmer Says:

    @lycan- listening to your TSU show while dancing with my 5 month old. very soothing…at least that’s what she thinks. Your playing is awesome, man. You are clearly the focal point of this band. Bravo. Guys, give it a spin, you won’t be dissapointed.

  24. Lycanthropist Says:

    thanks Mr. P!

  25. Mr. Palmer Says:

    no problem. i’m not saying it just to be nice either. I really like it.
