    Half way through Tiny Music having done the first 2 albums yesterday. These first 3 albums are elite.

    Every time I listen to STP, my already high appreciation of them grows. Very few bands do that.

    Huge fan, #4 might be my favorite.
    Could have been my generation's Zep if things didn't fall apart.

    Tiny Music and #4 are 2 of my all time rock discs; incredible songs and sonic bliss. Art School Girlfriend is one of my 10 year old son's favorite songs.

    The solo on Pop's Love Suicide is through a Pro Jr. Go get yourself a Pro Jr.

    Big Bang Baby is through a late 60's Marshall 18 watt 2x10

    Further south than I'd like.

    Came to say this. I find myself gravitating to that album more than any other.

    Not quite all acoustic but leaning in that direction.

    Listened to 12 Gracious Melodies yesterday, not a bad song on it, even with the bad snare mix.

    i'm so happy to see STP love threads. one way i have taught myself guitar & now bass is by sitting in a room, alone, for hundreds of hours, trying to learn DeLeo Brothers parts, & improv along to DeLeo Brothers parts.

    they are both monster musicians.

    some insane chords on those tunes

    I've been listening to them a lot as well lately. So great!

    I often wonder if they have deep knowledge of theory, or just have incredible ears and talent for putting together complex chords and progressions. Probably both, but their ability is really unique and impressive.

    If you haven't already may I suggest 12 Bar Blues, Scott's solo album. Its quite different from STP but one of the best things he has done IMHO. I'm glad the band has continued but it's just not the same for me. That said I do like the new singer a lot.

    Seems like both. Robert is the one actually supplies the weird chords and tonalities, but they are often spurred by Dean.


    That pre hiatus stretch is pretty much as good as it gets. The S/T comeback album is a solid farewell but not quite the same bar as the earlier stuff. Stuff since is really obviously missing Scott.

    obviously i don't really know, but i have heard Robert cite Bossa Nova as a huge influence on him, and i have heard the band cite prog–Rush, Yes–as a big influence, too.
