For some reason those links aren't copying over right, but the artist is 'Widespread Panic' and the songs are 'traveling light and weight of the world'.
No, can't get your links, but found the song.

Great cover of an old JJ Cale tune - >quite< a bit more going on than in the original. Cale was the epitome of stripped-down sound.

Shame too, cos (as you know) he puts on a really fun show - good times.
Last show I saw was Charlie Daniels, a couple years ago, believe it was $35 minimum donation. Came up to a little town near here to play a benefit for the local VFD. Couldn't have been 2000 people, but they played like it was a stadium show. Now there's a man.
Burlington, IA was only an hour from where we lived in Illinois. They have a Steamboat Days festival that runs about five days, with musical acts every night. We saw quite a few shows there (mostly country), the most memorable for me being ZZ Top and Zac Brown. They ran around $35 a ticket when we left.

Which makes me think of....

Kids are grown and out. I gotta get goin' on those 901s
Yep. Dad still has his 901s and they are just a bit older than me (40 comes on Thur) I got a deal on the acoustimass 7 with the unpowered box. Have to check that out latter. Wife's about to get home.

Get down with Dan.(I believe the addition of the 3 female back-up singers makes SD complete).

The concert was great, but the most fun was watching my girlfriend who really had no idea just what wide range of ... characters make up parrot head nation.

Its nice t see we can be on the same page. Have not seen Charlie yet,just keep missing him on my calender. Last year my truck broke down on my way to see ZZ Top, boy was I pissed off. The Jimmy who was playing dives in Key West and New Orleans would not have been able to go see the Jimmy of today.I'm with you, a CD Parrothead. Same prices for the Eagles who I really wanted to see. Its not like you can't afford it but I can'r justify spending that kind of $$$ to myself.Last show I saw was a couple of years ago too. Alan Jackson with Zac Brown opening up for him.

Now you're talking. For $35 I would see alot more shows. Did you like Zac Brown? I thought they were great. Still waiting to see ZZ Top . I was one unhappy guy when I missed the show due to mechanical failure of my truck.

<quoted text>My first were Electro-Phonics so you got the edge there. We'd just party at your place. It wasn't long after I got my first FT job (where I still work today), that I was able to find a second hand 85W Sansui amp/preamp and JBL100s. That was 35 years ago - Sansui is long gone, but still have the JBLs today (amazingly, nobody ever got stupid drunk enough to put their finger in the speaker cones).
My middle son is into music as much as I was (and still am), but most kids have no concept of the hi-fidelity we thought was so important. Once I mentioned the stereo separation in a particular song and he didn't even know what I was talking about. "Right/left what?" Quad would blow his mind....
Got a set of JBL's from a friend about 20 years ago, and my 2nd son slavered over them for 15 of those years....I finally made him giddy, by giving them to him for his 21st birthday. Told him he could turn them up past 3 on the volume dial when he moved out....so far, he hasn't felt the need to do either.

Wow!!! There's some really great music on this thread today - and it's the friendliest I've seen all the players here since I arrived.

Loved it, really. You folks rock.

(I could listen to Buffet and Skaggs for the rest of the week straight. Oh, and Freebird, I still like Mannilow even though he often makes me cry... nice of you to treat the lovely lady.)
