  1. In my long life, one of the best gifts was a 15 disc set that the Rat from Cali sent me straight up, could u imagine a 3 day Phish show when you had never seen the band? Yeah, so after that weekend I had seen quite a few shows but let me go back... because that weekend I think they just played for hours at a time, at an Airforce base in Limesone Maine, where jets should have been flyin' ....all of a sudden the runway was overun with hippies and nitrous tanks, and there was no stoppin' them, we might have been 70.000 strong at the time, why would you sacrifice your spirit? Or what you are doing at the time? Yeah!! So...I just thought I would do the 2 things I do best 1. Get Drunk 2. Enjoy the Scene ......So as I stumbled down the Runway (it was long) I managed to accomplish #2. THEN you wake up and they play for 8 hours or something like that..Posting papers on the board "Where is Booche?" , not that you could find a happy hippie in the masses, but the rest of the gang partied on between the 2 campsites and memories were made, and apparently the music was good...and as Tom and I drove home straight listening to Radiohead , it occurred to me that this was a major musical/social event, not only in my life, but in others as well. SO lets honour the 15 disc recording, A FuLL Listening Of the Lemonwheel Catalogue is in order! Details to Follow! So http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemonwheel
  2. I rarely log in but I have to say every minute of the Crowes was pure gold for me , I mean how good are they, like fuck, they are a polished band probably in their pure prime, every song sounds like rock and roll. I guess I am a fan but if you happened on the other stage (I heard it was awesome by many people) and missed the 15 minute Thorn In My Pride I am sorry. Where as the Panic having the chance to win new fans 4 nights previous couldn't draw the people because they lacked the requisite 2 radio hits, the Crowes drew over 20,000 for She Talks To Angels (which wasn't played) but introduced the 18,000 that weren't at the Congress Centre to REAL music, real blues, real rock, unlike the 60% of new wave, old wave, bad wave headline acts that fill up the schedule based on notoriety. Very memorable for me tonight , can't wait to see those guys again . Love you all... Peace Out
  3. wow ollie, those are some good pics
  4. Great pics and all I can say is the show sent me away happy, with that much bass, I am sure you were all feeling the same way. That moog synthesizer sound (big bass keyboard) is my favourite sound in music. WOW good stuff
  5. I think they played The Road off The Conch , although I was the same guy spreading the rumour they were doing a Midnight Set at Mavericks, maybe both were in my dreams but Wind It Up was defintely my highlight, Hope to get to moe.down for the first time this year ps. I am pretty sure they did The Road
  6. Is there really anything better than getting drunk by yourself and listening to obscure Neil Young songs on vinyl. I think not. So name your favourite Neil song that other people may not know, after all he is moving on 20+ albums. Live songs and covers qualify.
  7. Did not read the whole thread but I know the story....giggidy goo...the thought of Peter Griffin having an afair with Andre and their voices amalgamating is too good not to post. Thank god for comedy.
  8. [color:orange] Must be good news. Congrats to jambands.ca for bringing The Slip to the populace. The music is WAY too good to ignore. The CD will surely sell, looking forward to the new stuff. MONTREAL!!

  11. and here's to 500 more! I keep listening to Wiser Time and My Morning Song, GREAT guitar
  12. Have some Ottawa clan, appeciating the recording vibes... sound is pretty good, maybe 4 of 5 stars.
  13. How about Avril "Losing Grip" Honestly just listen to that song. And for the that top 100 I can't believe there would not be more Hip tunes in there, give me a break. But I am happy with my post, for some reason I had no idea who Ian & Sylvia were but now I do. Go Canada, christ what am I doing it's not even close to Canada Day yet. I should make a point to be at that place next year.
  14. Just a personal thought, but I think Blue Rodeo's "Hasn't hit me yet/Cold December Night" could possibly be the best song in Canadian history. While I realize that there are valid arguments for Lightfoot, Hip, Rush, Guess Who, etc. there is a spirit to this song that exudes the character of Canadian people. The lyrics and countryish slide guitar I am sure speaks to most of the population. "If You Could Read My Mind" is probably a better song, but obviously this is personal. I would be interested in seeing a Top 5 of best Canadian songs for the board.

    Boys Names

    Having been through the excercise, I understand it's truly difficult, girls names are easy Traditional that I like: James William Jeremy Jonah Bruce Absurd: Joe Dirt Duece Ace Andy Capp Lazlo Bouche Booche Why not name him after music: Crosby Stills Nash Jethro Robinson Jerry Kurt Marley Personally, I thought I was having a boy until she came into the world and I named her after Abbey Road, although the official name is Abigail All the best
  16. Thanks dudes Your responses are not too far off of my own thoughts Haven't logged into the board for a couple of weeks but sure enough the answers were there I would agree with Shainhouse, music that HAS to explode but under produced or unorganized. Tell Warren to give Daniel Lanois a call, he could probably do something studio-wise
  17. 661 views on this post I think its safe to say that we all give up at some point. I wish I could read the whole thread but I can't. NEVER GIVE UP, no matter what, life will work you over forever , get used to it, adapt, change and be happy, and THANNNK god for jambands.ca
  18. I love dancing in circles. So just give me your fav, I default to LOLA because I am weak but i know there are better songs on the album
  19. Just trying to learn this quote thing. Jaimoe, is that not a rhetorical question?
  20. Hmmmmmmm.... I guess I should do a search through the archives, but I think you nailed the hammer on the head How many people have given the album a 1.5 year ride in the car like me? Is the art of the studio album lost?
  21. Thanks for the response Jaimoe. I can definitely write a review. But I am somewhat of a Mule rookie, and i'm lazy, and curious, so I thought I would throw the question out. But before the crazies on the board come out and get me, all I have to say is don't worry, "I GET IT", I love the live. Just looking for some legitimate album reviews.
  22. Hey Bouche, why don't I have access to post in the Reviews section? I am struggling to understand this album for about a year, I fall in and out of love constantly. Is it too heavy? Are the songs out of order? What's the best song? Please explain board members.
