Oooh... not to get into a good, better, or best argument, but Richie Hayward is one of the most active and entertaining drummers I have ever had the good fortune to see perform.

Please review the Little Feat performance for us--my husband is a big fan, and they can even get me up to dance, no little feat (tho' mine are, rather, compared to his size 13s!).

I watched the dvds of the Johnny Cash Show from 1969 to 1971 (the years I lived in NY) and it was wonderful watching.  I watched them straight through (over four hours worth) and what a joy to watch.  (Less Johnny and more the guests.)  A very, very young Waylon Jennings before the been and camaflouge (sp?).  And Bob Dylan, neat and clean and wearing a suit and looking of so young, singing with Johnny.  James Taylor when Sweet Baby James came out (I remember that show quite well.

Johnny Cash refused to remove the word "stoned" from Sunday Morning Coming Down as ABC requested he do saying it would compromise the integrity of the song and that Kristofferson wrote it that way.

He insisted Pete Seeger appear even though Seeger was still blacklisted (IN THE SEVENTIES, FOR GOD'S SAKE) and there they  were: Seeger and Cash.

Johnny really was a god!  He supported Dylan when Dylan plugged in and idiots (like myself) were furious.  Dylan never forgot Johnny's support.

If you love Cash, this set is a treasure.  And so was Cash.

Onstage, “Last to Die” is followed, as it is on the album, by a song called “Long Walk Home.” In the first verse, the speaker travels to some familiar hometown spots and experiences an alienation made especially haunting by the language in which he describes it: “I looked into their faces/They were all rank strangers to me.” That curious, archaic turn of phrase — rank strangers — evokes an eerie old mountain lament of the same title, recorded by the Stanley Brothers.
“In that particular song a guy comes back to his town and recognizes nothing and is recognized by nothing,” Mr. Springsteen said. “The singer in ‘Long Walk Home,’ that’s his experience. His world has changed. The things that he thought he knew, the people who he thought he knew, whose ideals he had something in common with, are like strangers. The world that he knew feels totally alien. I think that’s what’s happened in this country in the past six years.”

I just received Emmylou's Songbird retro (4 cds, one dvd; one hardbound book on her history, recordings, etc.).  It is a magnificent package, costing me $60.

What pisses me off (and others on amazon who bought it) is the fact that to get the discs out you practically have to rip them out of the sleeves.  They are stuck inside sleeves with no room to move or flexibility to get the disc out safely.  What morons thought of this setup??  They spent so much money on  the beautiful packaging except figuring out how the consumer can remove the discs without destroying the package.

It is such a gorgeous package, especially the book.  I dread trying to take out the cds.  Pathetic!

I guess it may indicate how old I am, but Jimmy Buffett lost me around the time he came out with the Volcano album.  The Fins song in particular.

I suppose they think this kind of packaging evokes the old vinyls, but at least they came with liner sleeves, which CD packages like this should do as well.  I prefer the long books like the Santana and ELO box sets came in.

Warsaw Village Band is awesome. Youtube has a number of their videos and songs. Here is a particularly good and rhythmic one:

Relief: I managed to extricate the cds.  Emmylou is a goddess and this set is worth it.  Some really rare tracks I never heard and some I have heard.  I'm listening to her sing How High the Moon, an old old standard, that sounds great sung by Emmylou in a swing arrangement, a side of her I never heard before and it's fun.  This singer can do almost anything well.  I never knew she cowrote several songs with Rodney Crowell.  The booklet (or tiny book) is almost worth the price of the whole set.

If you love Emmylou, then I highly recommend this boxed set.  It's a treasure (even if it takes some doing to figure out how to extricate the discs.  Haven't seen the dvd yet.
