Is it Dylan's birthday or something? Good songs either way...
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:07am Number Six:

Good Evening, Jeff & Everyone!
  Mon. 11/6/17 12:07am DJ E:

Clark's solo work is so brilliant. this album in particular moves me so. yet he never gets his due.
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:08am Jeff Conklin:

Just feeling Dylan covers for a bit, his birthday is in May...
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:09am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

cool...I am feeling the covers too!
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:10am Megadano:

I 100% never tire of Ernie Graham.
  Mon. 11/6/17 12:10am DJ E:

anyone here have feelings on the "I'm Not There" soundtrack? I feel like a lot of the covers proves that Dylan's singing is more powerful than we think. No one can sneer like him, though Lennon is close. Cat Power's cover is good though.
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:12am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

@Dj E I remember getting that soundtrack because I read Greil Marcus claim that the italian rap crew's sampling was amazing...and it was SO shitty....
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:13am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Also I saw that movie in the theater...it was a bad movie, but at least it was going for it...
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:14am Jeff Conklin:

@Megadano: Same
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:15am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Bob Dylan, Lou Reed, who else is still kind of interesting even when they are sometimes boring/bad?
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:19am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

oooh, Richard Thompson! Pretty good songs, even when produced by Jeff Tweedy?
  Mon. 11/6/17 12:20am DJ E:

@adam I'd saying the Flaming Lips are always at least trying for something, even if it fails.
  Mon. 11/6/17 12:20am Hippie Jesus:

Good morning all!

I liked the Tweedy RT record but I like them all
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:23am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

yeah me too
  Mon. 11/6/17 12:23am dave in Brooklyn:

Personally, Sonic Youth’s cover of I’m Not There rips my heart out. I find it tough to argue that they didn’t capture the essence of that song, which is f’n staggering IMO
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:24am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

@dave oh yeah, I forgot about the version of Going to Acapulco, by a dude from a band I forget but I don't think I ever liked? Nailed it on that song though, if I remember right?
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:25am tuner fish:

great sunn cycle!
  Mon. 11/6/17 12:27am DJ E:

@Adam that was Jim James from My Morning Jacket. I liked him, has a very distinctive voice so he doesn't even try for a Dylan impression.

Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:30am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Oh shit, new Ash & Herb?!?!
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:32am Jeff Conklin:

Yes, new Ash & Herb. Tape/digital forthcoming on their own label, Flower Room.
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:32am Number Six:

Really nice!
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:34am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Skull Rock...wasn't that what they'd have to have Beavis and Butthead's shirts say when they weren't on tv? Good song title either way...
  Mon. 11/6/17 12:35am MONEYBAG$:

Skull rock's not dead
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:38am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Free Folk's Not Dead, ha ha
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 11/6/17 12:44am Ken From Hyde Park:

I just looked it up. Butt-head's says "Skull" and Beavis' says "Death Rock." Otherwise, it was AC-DC & Metallica and Stewart's shirt had Winger. That show cracked me up.
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:46am Jeff Conklin:

Important research. Good work, guys.
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:51am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

Jeff, you are pretty much straight edge right?
  Mon. 11/6/17 12:52am All Bunny:

Mesmerising lead
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 12:58am Jeff Conklin:

@Adam: I live a free life.
  Mon. 11/6/17 12:59am Hippie Jesus:

Probably just my ears, but this John Peterson vocals sound a good deal like, Martin Gore.
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:09am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

I like the Fotheringay cover....maybe...you're not as "free" as you think, Jeff!
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:10am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

J/k it is bad...
  Mon. 11/6/17 1:12am Hippie Jesus:

Anyone else experiencing “buffering” issues? Not once while the music was playing, but several times while our DJ was speaking. I may need to Lift My Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven.
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:13am Jeff Conklin:

Oh no, my rambling is the best part!
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:27am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

your talking is good Jeff, I always like it!
  Mon. 11/6/17 1:34am Hippie Jesus:

@adamkenzo speaks truth, so many nuggets of wisdom when Jeff speaks!
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:36am Jeff Conklin:

Haha. A necessary evil but thanks
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:37am Jeff Conklin:

Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:38am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

these jams...are very good!
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:40am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

also, I am not a super Deadhead, but it's pretty rare that there's a medley of Dark Star AND the 11, right?
  Mon. 11/6/17 1:41am dave in Brooklyn:

This is fuckin killer, Jeff. I can’t understand how I survived without this show
  Mon. 11/6/17 1:43am Hippie Jesus:

Was this once (like for one recording) referred to as, Uneven Eleven?
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:43am Jeff Conklin:

@Adam: No, that trio was very common in the late 60s.
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 1:44am AdamFromOldeKenzo:

ah, I should check out more 60s Dead then!
  Mon. 11/6/17 1:51am Jeff Conklin:

@dave: Thanks, man. What WERE you doing before??
  Mon. 11/6/17 1:52am dave:

@Adam: try this: https://archive.org/details/gd1969-02-22.sbd.miller.112691.flac16

cool, thanks Dave!
  Mon. 11/6/17 1:58am Bayta:

This Geist & the Sacred Ensemble is great! Never heard of them before.
  Mon. 11/6/17 2:02am dave:

@Adam: sure, as an Eleven fanatic, I think you'll find the energy of those '68 & '69 shows pretty addictive
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 2:05am Jeff Conklin:

@Bayta: Agreed!
  Mon. 11/6/17 2:06am dave:

@JC: not listening to enough psych, clearly. Mind = *

we love you Jeff, you are doing ineffably great work with your show
Avatar Mon. 11/6/17 2:21am Jeff Conklin:

Oh, man, thanks so much. So glad to be doing it...
