  1. I asked this years ago. I believe we determined that it was the demo song from either the Mellotron or the Chamberlain. I remember also hearing it in a golf apparel commercial starring Phil Mickelson in like 2008 or 2009.
  2. Check out Archive.org. That's where I get most of the recordings from that era.
  3. You can also email me directly at thermocaster (at) gmail.com
  4. Selling it at cost, obviously. I'm going to the show so I can hand it off there --- one of our party dropped out at the last minute. PM me if you're interested. Thanks.
  5. I'm not a Deadhead by any means, I barely have gotten into their stuff. I don't dislike it, I just haven't ever really gotten into it. I think CRB is a lot of fun and the songs are really enjoyable as long as you take them for what they are - sonic experiences and abstract imagery. If you're expecting something different than that, then I'd say the problem is you, not the writing. BTF/UTF had a lot of really excellent songs on it, I agree. It was a great middle-aged album, if that makes any sense. RR's stuff is also good, but very different. Reminds me of Stephen Stills' heavier solo wor
  6. Do it quickly though...that show keeps getting put up on YouTube and then pulled down, and then put up again. Rinse repeat.
  7. Thanks! I used a variety of different ones on each of the tracks. Some of them were tweaked filters in Logic, while some of them were using Ozone and a couple of other VSTs to modify the sounds on individual tracks. If there are any in particular that you're interested in, let me know and I can tell you.
  8. Thanks, I appreciate it! Let me know what you think
  9. My most recent album just got (self) released. I wrote a blog post about it: http://sportspolitik.com/2014/02/new-album-released-chrysalis/ That link has the iTunes and Amazon links. Here's the direct Spotify playlist, if you don't want to mess with the blog post: Galen Clavio – Chrysalis If you get a chance to listen, let me know what you think. Thanks.
  10. I was at both of them - they were indeed something to see. Saturday just shredded. Sunday was a fascinating tour through acoustic country blues.
  11. Someone posted a theory that it wasn't Tweedy talking about (or to) any one person, but that it was actually him talking to the mid-2000s United States, as a society. How the idea of society declining into the single-minded imperialism of WW2 Germany or Japan was just as possible now. Jeff addressing his country as a concerned lover, I guess.
  12. Ended up grabbing tickets for both nights at the Ryman. Anyone else going to be there?
  13. I have that same bootleg! The alternate take of Dancing With Mr D. is actually the one that made me think it was a decent song, after years of not liking it. It's faster and the riff is more...metallic? It works better for that song.
  14. I'ma stick up here a little bit for all three of the mid-70's albums. I used to feel the same way as many people do - that they represented the nadir of the Stones, that they're unlistenable, etc... But really, after years of listening to them on and off, they're good. Not great, by any means, but they're good. And taken out of the immediacy of critical reviews that occurred at the time, they're mostly fun and enjoyable. I think that's a huge problem with many different records over the years (not just the Stones' records) --- there's an important critical or cultural reason to HATE what the
  15. Hmmm.... - Sway - Gimme Shelter - Can't You Hear Me Knocking - Hand of Fate - Stray Cat Blues - Moonlight Mile - Torn and Frayed - Street Fighting Man - Happy - Shine a Light
