Hello all

Morning Jeff! Loving the QSMS. Happy trails was one of the first psychedelic albums I bought back in the late 70's!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 12:14am Jeff Conklin:

@fredr: Nice. I believe Richard Lloyd and Tom Verlaine were big proponents of the QMS
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/6/17 12:16am Aitch:

Hey Jeff, listening live for a change. Need cool music, boiling here.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 12:17am Jennifer_PNW:

@Jeff: One reason why I loved Television so much, their fine musical tastes
  Mon. 2/6/17 12:17am Brent.:

This QMS is mental.

Perfect song for burning Palo Santo.

Often think of how the Fillmores & that scene brought better P.A.s & sound - & practically demanded bands play longer for acidheads whathaveyou...a real advance for Rawk that 'Hippiedom' isn't always credited for in people's stereotypes...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 12:23am Jeff Conklin:

@Revolution: Good point. We can thank Owsley and the Dead mostly for that ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/6/17 12:29am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Yes - Owsley as mad soundman. I think of The Dead then as like Disney when he was alive (?) - putting the last success back into some new larger trip... John Cipollina is exalted as a Psych Guitarist who wasn't all about distortion : en.wikipedia.org... - hence the connection to Television & such. @ Terrastock V we saw the Japanese band named Ghost - & their guitarist had people making the comparison to JC as praise...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 12:31am Jeff Conklin:

Funny you mention Ghost/Kurihara, I was going to say Cippolina is so underrated except by the Japanese guitarists who came up in the 80s/90s, seems all of them loved John's playing.

quicksilver and many others play pepperland

in the mid seventies

Always listen, just usually on delay. You start 4:00PM here Monday afternoon -I'm in the future. Sadly you do not not get lucky tonight!
  Mon. 2/6/17 12:34am bbb:

Hi Jeff & everyone...Ghost were awesome. Yeah, Cipollina seems to be underrated in comparison to other SF psych guitarists of that time.
Avatar Mon. 2/6/17 12:34am Hagbard Celine:

Hey, hey. Saw Ghost once myself.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 12:38am Jennifer_PNW:

Hmmm, not familiar with Blue Mountain Eagle. Great track though, will check that out.
  Mon. 2/6/17 12:38am johnk77:

both john and his half-brother mario
were killer live players
mario probably still is
john rip
copperhead was also great live
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 12:39am Jennifer_PNW:

@Hagbard : How was Ghost live? Just picked up Batoh's "Collected Works" the other day.
  Mon. 2/6/17 12:39am johnk77:

great work tonight selecter jeff
  Mon. 2/6/17 12:40am Mario:

Good morning, Jeff and evryone.
Beautiful song by Green.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/6/17 12:43am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Ghost was way kewl when I saw them - three whole days of AltPsych @ TerrastockV. There's @ least one other band named 'Ghost'...Neat-o link johnk77. Yes - that damned dancing bear is referencing the great Owsley.
Avatar Mon. 2/6/17 12:43am Hagbard Celine:

@Jennifer Ghost was great. I was a long time ago. Sometime around '92 or '93. I was really into them and several other Japanese psyche guitar bands at the time. I remember loving the show.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 12:46am Jennifer_PNW:

@Hagbard and @Rabbit : Very cool!
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 12:47am Jeff Conklin:

Saw Ghost about 15 years ago, they were amazing. The great PG Six opened the show at the Knitting Factory when it was still on Leonard St in Manhattan. Jack Rose might've played too
Avatar Mon. 2/6/17 12:49am Hagbard Celine:

@Jeff. Sounds great! I got to see the great PG Six along with Tower Recordings at around that same time as that Ghost show I mentioned. Great shows.

Love this Electronic Hole song! I only first heard it around 5 years ago.
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 1:06am Jennifer_PNW:

I've been open to other formats besides vinyl for a long time, now. Sadly, the prices are a bit out of my reach as of late. Anyone else feel the same?
  Mon. 2/6/17 1:08am bbb:

Yeah, I'm not picky about format. Maybe because I'm old enough to have lived through so many different kinds!
  Mon. 2/6/17 1:10am bbb:

And yeah, the prices of new vinyl releases are high.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/6/17 1:15am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Funny - vinyl in the Rawk Era was very affordable - & thus the industry & the music itself thrived. In our world now - vinyl's the artisanal biscuit...
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 1:17am Jennifer_PNW:

@Rabbit : so true..."artisanal biscuit"
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/6/17 1:19am Jennifer_PNW:

Killer live track
The Hideout is one of my favorite spots in Chicago
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/6/17 1:19am Scraps:

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 2/6/17 1:32am ausmanx:

chris cutler told me a couple of years back that there was a reason ReR didn't release things on vinyl - that you can only fit a fraction of the dynamic range on it compared to CD. a few others have echoed that, which is good enough for me. and yeah, some vinyl prices are just silly and greedy these days.

Morning Jeff! Tuning in to the tail end here...and loving this Pasquarosa/Moloney track!

Thanks for checking in, Adam. Everybody else got scared away and/or went to sleep

It's so great to be able to hear Walker/MacKay/&Zerang again - I was at that show and it was a powerful vibe.
