|This is such a tremendously powerful song, but unfortunately, this may be the absolutely worst version of it. I'd give the studio version from "Bloodletting" a 10...this a got a 4 from me.|

Always loved these guys. Don't like Danny Elfman's film scores, though...

I heard an acoustic version of Driving the View back in the days when music sharing was unrestricted. It is not on any Son Volt album I've heard, but it was absolutely amazing. The hook riff was very pronounced and the sound quality was good. Does anyone know the version I am talking about and if so could you please share it with me? I need this to round out my Son Volt collection.
I also would love to hear this. I wonder if it was a b-side? Just checked allmusic.com and my best guess is that it is from Jay Farrar's Live EP, but there is no link to hear it & I don't own it. Yet.

So, trying to find this song online so I can make a friend listen to it and there are A LOT of false positives for this song that all result in a VERY different song. What's up with that? Is Radio Paradise wrong? Or most of the Internet? (Personally, I know where I'm laying my money.)
You're having trouble because the band was never signed and there's another band who didn't do their due diligence and are using the same name. This song is on "Set Me Free". "Leaving L.A." is a better record IMO. I own all of their recordings and saw them live countless times. They were a very fun college band comprised of some genuinely good human beings. Follow the link...

Go listen to some Gang of Four from "Entertainment" and get back to us.
There's really no guarantee he'll even make the connection.

Love this verse:
Switching it over to AM
Searching for a truer sound
Can't recall the call letters
Steel guitar and settle down
Catching an all-night station somewhere in Louisiana
It sounds like 1963, but for now it sounds like heaven
My favorite verse in the song as well. Some things just come across as a "universal truth" or almost relating a sense of "home", if that makes sense. These lyrics really work for me.

Um... this is the second Phish song being played today. Being that I'm not that big of a fan, this does not please me all that much. Once a day is more than enough.
Um...I'm a huge fan and I like this song! Sorry, NWG, my opinion offsets yours, so I guess it's a wash!

|This track sux to all suckdom! |
OK, I'm really one of those heavily biased DtB fans diggin' the hell out of this song! I voted it an "8" here and voted the album a "buy" with my pocketbook!
|Crowded House - Weather With You|

There's something about this song that I really like and something that I find horribly annoying. Very odd.
I actually like the band, but I've only noticed the horribly annoying part of this song.

|Very good, not great song. Always loved Johnette's vocals and James Mankey's playing and really wish I could find more from him. Anyone heard his album "Jam"?|
|Ween - Transdermal Celebration|
(Jan 17, 2005 - 23:34)
Get with it people. Ween is the bomb! You may have written them off, even misspelled "puerile", but they are fantastic. Now in the context of their new works, go back and appreciate the developmental process. C'mon! The HIV song is a classic, though it took seeing a live performance to make me understand.
There is so much to appreciate...... Fat Lenny, I Can't Put My Finger on It, Mutilated Lips.... to name a few.
Now Bill, please play "The Argus"-- the best song off the new album.
Preach it like you mean it, Brother Rod!
Those of you who have awakened, welcome! It may have been a long, hard journey, but the effort will be rewarded to those who listen with an open mind. Embrace the primal energy, the funky grooves, the country & western twang, and the pieces you swear could have been penned by John & Paul. The songs will energize, heal, and make you feel alive! You might even find that you will allow yourself to laugh along with Ween! It's OK, embrace all of the available sensory stimulations.
The rest of you, who foolishly hopped on the anti-Ween bandwagon without truly exploring what these guys were doing, quit reading crappy rags like Rolling Stone! Ween flat out rawks! And when they explore a groove, the $#!@ is tight. Even Nashville session players walked away after recording 12 Golden Country Greats shaking their heads at Deaner & Gener's pickin' prowess! Accept that their ability to pull off a variety of genres doesn't mean they lack vision, it means they have skills!
Now join us, the enlightened, in the ecstasy-filled wallowing of brown that is the music of Ween!

Late at night, when everything's quiet and I'm laying there hearing the ringing in my ears, I think of Love and RocketsThe Loudest Concert Ever. Rawk!
Bill got snookered by the Amazon release date of this album. He said it was a newer album from 2002, but it's a 1986 album and song. The 2002 version evidently has B-sides and stuff...
Actually, it is from the 2002 cd, my `86 version is vinyl. I uploaded the version minus the pops & hiss!
|Elliott Smith - Between The Bars|
(Nov 08, 2004 - 19:53)
Does anyone know what album this song is even on, I'm unfamiliar with it, but of course, it's great...at least his music will live on
It's track #4 on the album either/or on the Kill Rock Stars label, released in 1997. It's usually considered the 1st of his albums to warrant significant praise.
|The Doors - Roadhouse Blues|
(Aug 29, 2004 - 13:07)
Probably the most over-rated band of that era. Passing blues, with a charismatic front man to hide the deficiencies.
Just tossin' a coupla pennies into the hat here...
Probably one of the the best bands to ever have to put up with a jackass out front! Seriously, these guys were awesome in spite of Morrison!
|The Jesus and Mary Chain - Head On|

JAMC were a little long in the tooth by then, but I saw that tour too, at the Warfield in SF. Met up with some friends post-show (who had better seats) and all we all could say was "wow." Talking about NIN. JAMC were a known quantity and it was a great show but Trent just came out of nowhere and made a bunch of music snobs say "wow."
Agreed. Saw these two at the Mesa Amphitheater in Mesa, AZ. I already ownd Pretty Hate Machine, so was a little suprised to see the two bands touring together. NIN's sound was terrific that night and just worked the crowd into a frenzy. J&MC were excellent as well. One of the best shows I've ever seen.
The very next week at the same venue, I saw Peter Murphy (don't know who opened, we were late). There's still an impact mark on the ground where my lower jaw hit! Fan-freakin-tastic!

|The worst thing about this song is that it ends.
I know they're popular and have been around forever, but Let It Bleed is the only Rolling Stones recording I own. Haven't been a huge fan, I guess, but Gimme Shelter is truly a masterpiece.

Anyone remember when Robin Williams would do this one singing it as Elmer Fudd??
I'm trying to figure out what it means when I realize Robin Williams' version brings out the strongest response from me!?!
