CPT live at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland 1974 playing songs from their soon-to-be released album "Wings After Sunset". Excellent version of "Employed Homo Sapien".
No head banging this week - Neil Diamond's Hot August Night. One of the top live albums ever.

I remember listening to that with my Dad WAAAAY back in the '70s. I own it on cd. Wink
In order to make up for a 40k cut in pay I have had to unfortunately drop my SXM subscription and am now "listening to" the radio again after several years of being a bit spoiled.

The spirit of the radio is really some worn out dude with a tattered sheet over his head. Now I prefer the sound of silence.
I gave up SXM long ago because...it is a pale imitation of what it was 8 to 10 years ago. It used to have some fine channels but now it is 85 flavors of vanilla. To me the only thing good about SXM is the lack of commercials...
Some Flogging Molly playing at our place today.
The gates of perception have been cleansed and I am seeing for the first time!

No, no, not LSD but rather, the re-mixed (by Steven Wilson) version of Yes' "Close to the Edge." It is amazing. Like the ELP and King Crimson re-mixes he has done they feature 5.1 surround versions as well as stereo mixes. It is like hearing it for the first time...the separation, fidelity, and clarity are stunning. The backing vocals are more clear and distinct. Squire's bass thunders and Bruford's drumming finally has the punch that Billy put into it. I cannot recommend it enough!

I really need to buy a copy, and one of the CPT's latest as well. I am a Yes fan from way back before I knew about those other guys .
Nettie, it will be the best CD you buy this year.
Nung - remember, "The Calling"? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3E8lL6HqfA

I remember being in traffic in Savannah, in a Tenth Anniversary Trans Am with the tops out.
The Yamaha system was hammering out the opening to the above tune - and a tall brunette was standing in the passenger's seat... dancing.. hair flying... horns blowing...
<sigh>
Very dynamic song-love the closing deep notes at the end.
