Hey, everyone. Thoroughly confused by my social media feeds tonight...people watch the oscars!?
  Mon. 2/27/17 12:03am Eiderdown:

Not familiar with that Love track. Off an official album?
  Mon. 2/27/17 12:05am Erik in Michigan:

Man...Croz always makes the most sense.

Hello everyone, listening from the Oregon rainforest
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/27/17 12:11am Jeff Conklin:

Hey Everyone.

@Adam: Yeah, forgetting what album right now. Total CSNY vibe hence the follow up
  Mon. 2/27/17 12:12am Erik in Michigan:

Feels like this could be an outtake to a Rick danko album (it's great).
Avatar 🎃 Mon. 2/27/17 12:13am Jennifer_PNW:

Not familiar with Rich Mountain Tower, going to seek it out. Thanks
Avatar Mon. 2/27/17 12:13am Hagbard Celine:

Hey all. Sounds sunny in here
  Mon. 2/27/17 12:16am Eiderdown:

I looked up Rich Mountain Tower right away too, ha
  Mon. 2/27/17 12:27am Erik in Michigan:

Here's my notable record store / internet purchases this week:
Six organs of admittance - Burning the Threshold
Loretta Lynn - You ain't women enough
George Jones - The Race is on
Elton John - s/t
Beach Boys - Smiley Smile
Mahavishnu Orchestra - Birds of Fire
Neil Young - after the gold rush

All are new to me, aside from Neil, which was a G/VG record for pretty cheap.

Notable listening beyond that...2/26/77 Grateful Dead. 40 year anniversary of the Terrapin / Estimated debuts!
Avatar Mon. 2/27/17 12:31am Hagbard Celine:

@Erik Looking forward to that new 6 organs. Huge fan of his
  Mon. 2/27/17 12:35am Erik in Michigan:

@hagbard - digging the new 6organs so far. Made me dive into 6organs/comets/howlin rain all weekend
  Mon. 2/27/17 12:42am Erik in Michigan:

1st time hearing this version...killer. Man, it's just one of the best songs ever.
  Mon. 2/27/17 12:59am Erik in Michigan:

Didn't know that was the original version of Driving Wheel, and now I feel bad.
  Mon. 2/27/17 1:05am Erik in Michigan:

@Eiderdown: I somehow completely missed it when it came out and a friend played it for me today. In full agreement.
