    No doubt. I'd say that's probably the definitive version if it was put to the vote? I just love that Taj Mahal album, 'Natchl Blues' & '...Water...' is a highlight on it.

    Unfortunately (or thankfully?) I don’t have the funds to do so at the point. I think getting a Creston or a Waterslide would be awesome, though.

    My Skreddy Echo listing on Reverb has 22 watchers with not one legitimate offer.

    I do believe I will start making a series of minor price adjustments just to annoy the crap out of all of them.

    I looooove the way they look. Functionally they'd be identical to everything I already have.

    But I looooooove that look.

    I almost made a drastic price cut just to undercut all the other KOT's on reverb, but then the buyer swooped in with a very reasonable offer.

    I can afford a Vemuran now :anon

    Are we thinking one dollar at a time?

    Perhaps I could interest you in a Vertex wah instead?

    I have the Geils red vinyl edition somewhere.

    All of those mentioned LP’s bent my synapses in strange ways.

    I can see many reasons why someone might not like the dead. But if we are talking the best years (72-77) I don’t think lack of energy would be high on the list.

    We had our regular live radio broadcast today. The band was called Five Month Journey. Older guys except the acoustic player who was the son of the electric guitarist. They had keys, electronic drums and a bass player who also used organ-type pedals to add some synth lines. We had a long sound check and they seemed a little picky to me, but I got them dialed in. We got a good headphone mix for everyone and the mix for broadcast was real good.

    They played their first song and they were real good. The second had a bit of a Cajun feel. Then the interview portion started. The band came together to remember and celebrate the life of daughter of the electric guitarist (sister of the acoustic guitarist) who took off on a solo trip and never returned. I didn't catch what exactly happened, if she was murdered, abducted or disappeared with no resolution or what. But I was busy trying to mix with tears building up in my eyes. Didn't see that coming at all.

    They played an hour of some real good heartfelt material, with tight vocal harmonies. It could have been all down and dark and depressing, but it wasn't. A lot of it was celebratory. They came to honor her memory. But, man, it wasn't an easy show to get through. It's pretty rare to hear music that emotional without a trace of being sappy. I'm still processing the experience.

    You just never know who is going to walk through that door to play and what their story might be.
