there are two 7"s that came out that i haven't gotten; and, therefore, i probably can't get, by now.

Last Waltz: Pretentious interviews, both Scorsese's imploring, Meaning-laden questions and Robertson's I'm-really-doing-something-heavy-here responses. You'd think rock-band touring was the equivalent of achieving world peace.

Read Levon's book for the story behind the Last Waltz, Mike. It confirms all your suspicions. Also, the real audio from the show is easily found online. Long live Hank Williams.

Saw Cheap Trick four times, every time as the headline act. First at the Whisky on Sunset Blvd., last at Long Beach Arena New Year's Eve, '78. They got better as the venues expanded.

Another song covered by Dave Edmunds.
  Sat. 12/29/18 11:47am clarke:

what the books and the movie doesn't 'get' about the Replacements is that they were KILLER, early-on. just the best band one could imagine. at some point, they decided to see how far they could get away with fucking with the audience. BUT... and here's the point: they ALWAYS pulled off one song perfectly killer just to show the people what they could get and then f'd up the rest of the set.
  Sat. 12/29/18 11:47am Dean:

Met them, too, at the Tower Records on Sunset.

there is a part of The Last Waltz that makes me tear-up every time i see it: it is when rick danko is being intv'd in their studio and playing tracks from his solo record. you can just tell that it is tearing him apart to see The Band end.

To that eternal question, the answer is still: The Kinks

MS - i think the beatles tunes are so far ingrained in our brains that i would probably make the same decision, too.
  Sat. 12/29/18 11:54am Ross T.:

The Beach Boys are the band for me that has an unlimited pleasure quotient.

Kinks certainly get same breath consideration and then some.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/29/18 11:56am Listener Baby:

Baby. The math just doesn't work for me on that question. Beatles album tracks just too many great ones. The circle is just so much larger with The Beatles. So says I. But BB's are fantastic!

where is this island????
  Sat. 12/29/18 12:00pm Ross T.:

Lastly, The Last Waltz should be seen as an anti-cocaine commercial. Primarily to see anti-rock star Band member/leader Robbie Robertson transform from humble, peculiar looking recluse musician into important, silly scarf wearing, uh, rock star.

this island that Baby and Montmaster are on???
Avatar Sat. 12/29/18 12:00pm ledzeppelinsucks:

make the nachos in multiple layers. each layer gets all ingredients except for high moisture items like salsa and onions. those go on the top layer to avoid making the lowers soggy. use thinly sliced cerrano or jalapeno instead of canned peppers, which have too much water and are tainted with vinegar. do not use anything with hababero on nachos or use habanero in nacho ingredients. keep that as a condiment if you like it. use cerrano or jalapeno peppers on nachos. refried beans are better to use on nachos, whole beans fall off and have too much water.

I'm a card-carrying (Beatles [USA] Ltd.) Beatlemaniac. But I'm with Clarke on Beatles vs. Beach Boys on a desert island. We have already memorized the Beatles canon and analyzed within an inch of its life. But we can always find a detail in the harmonies or orchestration of the Beach Boys that we haven't noticed.

I imagine many if not most here are familiar with the Martin Scorsese anecdote about watching the Last Waltz Neil Young footage and realizing in Neil's schnozz sat the world's largest coke booger. Being a time of pre-computer editing, doctoring it amounted to about $50,000, causing Scorsese to term it "the most expensive coke I ever purchased."

another Last Waltz anecdote is that they basically had to put a foot in Van Morrison's ass to push him onstage because he didn't want to perform

And furthermore... make your own tortilla chips. But I think you do that already.

Always thought this would make a great Hoof & Mouth song for someone…

If you’re still looking for Amazon Prime vid recommendations, “If It Ain’t Stiff”, the short doc of the Live Stiffs tour is there if you haven’t seen it. I’d recommend putting the English subtitles on though!

Nikki Hill sounds a lot like Maria McKee.

A nice alternative nachos topper is barbecue pulled pork. However if you prefer to stick with ground beef, the key is avoiding the pointlessly taste-free so-called taco seasoning and instead use Old Bay seafood seasoning. It does not turn beef into fish, but it does add plenty of good and fitting flavor
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 12/29/18 12:45pm Michael Shelley:

I must admit - I like the packaged seasoning (though I purposely have never looked at the list of ingredients) - but Old Bay sounds nice too

it might've been Starry Eyes, which has a similar riff.

Twas that tune indeed. We probably ruined it. Was the Roxy as I remember. Though we played the Palomino, and my amp blew up.

I can't even express in words how much I hated that Replacements documentary. A bunch of insufferable beard guys talking pretentiously about a band who's very existence was based on being unpretentious. Awful. You're not wrong about the Last Waltz and Robertson.
Nacho tip: use whole pinto beans and utilize all the canned liquid on the chips.

Also, The Marvelous Mrs Maisel on Amazon. It's completely delightful. Derry Girls on Netflix is also pretty brilliant.
