|Bonnie Raitt - Runaway|
(Feb 02, 2013 - 19:54)
|I remember learning to play this song on piano while listening to an old show tape from one of her shows in the 80s. My dad had a hot rod portable tape player that would let you adjust the speed of playback, and I recall I did just that so that it would play back in an easier key for me to play in. :) Man, that was almost 25 years ago. Bon, here's to you and my dad spending another 25 years together, doing what you do. Thanks for everything you've given to us, and to the whole world.|

|Or being-sentimental-about-everything-in-the-boxes-in-your-living-room-including-phone-bills-after-your-mom-just-died music. |
Maybe jump-out-your-apartment-window-on-a-rainy-day-when-you're-hungover-and-your-lover-has-just-left-you kind of music.
|Patty Griffin - Sweet Lorraine|

|I remember watching Patty perform pretty much everything from this album in Nashville back in 1997. I've never heard just a person and an acoustic guitar fill up a room like that, and with no PA. Best $3 I ever spent.|
|Béla Fleck & The Flecktones - The Sinister Minister|

|If you like this, you should watch this awesome video from 1990 that was just uploaded to YouTube:|
Béla's mullet doesn't upstage Victor's bass solo, but it sure tries. And if you've never seen a Victor Wooten bass solo, go watch this right now.
|David Gilmour - Dimming of the Day|

|Big fan of this song. Like Bonnie Raitt's live version (any of them) better though. Maybe it's just my many years of listening to her do it, though.|
|Ka'au Crater Boys - On Fire|
(May 13, 2010 - 12:25)
| festive. I can't understand why something like this is so polarizing. Zappa, now that should be polarizing.|
|Eight & A Half Souvenirs - Sharp Dressed Man|
(Oct 11, 2007 - 20:06)

|Damnations TX - Unholy Train|

|Actually at the time of this recording, it was two chicks, two dudes.
Good on ya, Bill! Now can we hear Black Widow?? Nothin like a waltz about burglary!
It's two chicks and a dude.
