Too Drunk To Dream

…ain’t no drinking when the bottle’s dry…

Garcia, Weir, and Los Lobos jammin on some Guthrie

This is a weird little tidbit of music that I’ve been hoarding for a couple of years. I thought I’d share it, because, well, I’m on a bit of a “Dead” streak, and what good is music if you can’t share it with people who love, and live, music, right???

The Grateful Dead rolled into Foxboro, Mass on July 2nd, 1989 to start the ’89 Summer Tour. Big album, big plans, and a big tour were the foreshadowing of what was to become one of the most exciting tours in the latter part of Dead history. This little nugget of music came to me in a trade a while back, and the only info that I have on this recording is that it was filmed for Fourth of July broadcast on “Nightline with Ted Koppel”. What I didn’t know until now, is that the footage of this broadcast is now available on YouTube… isn’t technology effin’ amazing… It’s nice to hear a couple of takes, a couple of fuck-ups, a few diversions, and then to be able to see the finished product! Enjoy…

She & Him – You Really Got A Hold On Me [video]

I’ve become quite obsessed with this album this week. It doesn’t REALLY live up to the indie hype would indicate, but all-in-all the album is a sublimely eloquent and enjoyable album. Simple, no pretense. No aspirations of a hit single. Just back porch, indulgent music. Here’s my last video for a while….

Iron & Wine on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic

Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) sat down with Nic Harcourt on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic on Nov. 29th, and delivered a fantastic, dreamy set of music. Pulling a couple of songs off of 2007’s critically acclaimed The Shepherd’s Dog and a song each from Endless Numbered Days, Woman King e.p. , and the In Good Company soundtrack, Sam Beam weaves in a signature of humility with his brand of lush, Nick Drake-infused neo-folk.

03.Sodom South Georgia
04.Boy With A Coin
06.Resurrection Fern
07.Woman King
08.Trapeze Swinger
10.He Lays In The Reins

Iron & Wine – Morning Becomes Eclectic [256kbps mp3]

[I gotta say , the highlight of this set has to be the 7 minute Trapeze Swinger from In Good Company. The quiet tension is incredible. Enjoy – Jameson]
