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.

    You would’ve had to have tried really hard to have been in attendance for this and not have had your life changed forever by this show.

    Project A: *Cut out all the useless words in this sentence and dissect to it’s simplest form.*

    Project B: *Discuss*

  4. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Did the whole MSG run in ’98- took me a long time to recover from those shows.

  5. Mr. Palmer Says:

  6. neemor Says:

  7. Gratefulcub Says:

    excellent lxl, but albany 99 is my fav

  8. Mr. Palmer Says:

    sounds like the want to go into Taste for a little while

  9. neemor Says:

    I want ‘Ain’t Love Funny?’ at my next show.
    Just leapt to the top of the list.

  10. Mr. Palmer Says:

    is it a phish song or a cover? not familiar

  11. neemor Says:

    What Mike just pulled to kick off ‘Saw It Again’ was just DIRTY!

  12. neemor Says:

    It’s a JJ Cale tune. doesn’t even mention this performance of the song?

  13. Luther Justice Says:

    I think they only played it in 97??

  14. neemor Says:

    That’s right, 8.9.97 was the last time.
    327 shows.

  15. HarryHood Says:

    Neemor! With Neemsbane! Congrats!

  16. HarryHood Says:

    To celebrate, I’m gonna spin 7/1 with you. Where you at? I’ll cue it up

  17. Gratefulcub Says:

    You are just getting warmed up Neemor. The show is known for ‘wormtown’ but it’s really all about the Gin>Cities.

    I’m like Robear, it’s hard to say ‘best’ this ‘best’ that, I like his terminology, so I shall swipe it: Top Shelf Cities. It sits beside the 18 year old bourbons collecting dust waiting for someone whose serious about what they drink.

  18. Gratefulcub Says:

    We are all over the place, I’m at Cities, but my limited time meant I had to sample.

  19. Larry Sellers Says:

    hell yeah man. ain’t love funny has been my favorite covers since my first listen of 7/1/97 amsterdam. Really good tune especially coming out of thick funk which I believe happened both times the song was played. The other being at alpine latter that year. I think?

  20. HarryHood Says:

    I think Neemor passed out….

  21. Mr. Palmer Says:

    Reba@ Hood

  24. Gratefulcub Says:

  25. Luther Justice Says:
