    They've got another live DVD besides the one at the Crystal Ballroom. It was recorded in Australia in '05 maybe. It came out a little while after Rubber Factory.

    I heard one song on the radio a few weeks ago and loved them! I dont know the name of the song but it was a killer tune. I actually thought it was the White Stripes playing. Sounded alot like the Stripes.

    Great tones! GREAT pipes! Hooray for Ohio. Coincidentally, the Earthquaker Devises guy (I think works (or worked)) for Audio Eagle, the label the drummer started.

    For like the last year year I kept hearing about how good they were and finally 3 months ago I decided to check them out. I heard Your Touch and I Got Mine first and fell in love. So i got Attack & Release after Christmas and now, along with A&R, I have Magic Potion, The Big Come Up, Thickfreakness, and I just got Rubber Factory. They are such an incredible band. I need to see them! I have to get Dan's solo CD too. Damn, i love The Black Keys.

    Same exact story for me (the first song I heard was Just got To Be, the moment I heard that feedback I new this was for me) except I haven't been able to get The Big Come Up or Thickfreakness yet. Their sound has totally changed the way I make music now, and has given me a whole new level of inspiration.

    I saw them live recently, and it was the best live show I had ever seen a band do. The crowd sucked, but the music was amazing. It's a whole new level of awesome with the power of live sound coming at you.

    You need to get Chulahoma if you don't have it. There's something magical about the 'Keys doin' Junior Kimbrough tunes.

    I like these guys a lot, but I don't any of their CD's, yet. What's a good one to start with?

    Great link, BTW!

    Surely you are all hip to Dan's solo album "Keep it Hid" by now, it is a masterpiece.

    As far as what Keys album to get? Any and all (but get the newest one last, it's...well, get it last).

    I would suggest starting with Rubber Factory. Here is a good live performance of 10 AM Automatic.

    I typically recommend starting with their latest "Attack and Release" just because it's much easier to catch on to. Of course their best work is The Big Come Up. Just listen to it all and enjoy!

    A cool thing they do is highly suggest that their audience members bring recording devices to their shows and then send copies to them. I've got maybe 20+ live recordings from their message boards.
