Me. The dead-on Genesis freak.

Never knew Phil sat in to make this Jethro Tull show happen. Until now.

I hope JBI is around, as this is original footage of Genesis performing Supper's Ready. He'll get it and I only wish more would.

EDIT: And to think Peter Gabriel was once that thin.

EDIT2: Damn, to have been 20 in 1973.

EDIT3: JBI, please help me to attest that this is what Gabriel/Genesis was all about.

EDIT4: Damn, I had me too much Scotch last night.

Yup, really wish I could've seen 'em live back at their peak. They were pushing the envelope, doing something different. Hard to believe this was (mostly) the same band that cranked out shiny pop filler -- complete with EWF horns -- for the MTV era.

I even like most of the post-Gabriel stuff up until "Duke", so I'm not one of the rabid "Genesis wasn't worth a damn after Gabriel left" crowd. (I do think it borders on criminal that the track ordering of Duke was rearranged to split the "Duke Suite" up into three pieces though. IMO they should've left it intact as one complete side of the album, and put all the shorter standalone songs on the other side.)

Working late (about to run out of gas though, probably leaving the office soon). Listening to András Schiff's phenomenal interpretations of Beethoven's piano sonatas. Currently on Volume 4...

Jethro Tull, July 21, 1982, at the Princes Trust Rock Gala. Notable mainly for this being before Ian Anderson lost his voice and that the drummer is some balding Cockney guy whose sartorial tastes run to Hawaiian shirts and shorts, i.e. what he wore in his guest shot on Miami Vice.

Sarah Mclachlan - Possession

Great song... and a bit creepy too, when you know the history.

I always did like that song. Not only is it good music, it's a powerful illustration of the fine line between passionate desire and insanity.

If you're a McLachlan fan then I assume you've already heard the live performance versions released on Mirrorball and Songbird, but if not, they're both really good. I prefer them in that order FWIW.

Just finished listening to Ziltoid the Omniscient by Devin Townsend. EVERYONE should sit through this masterpiece at least once.

Or any Townsend album, for that matter. Accelerated Evolution is quite possibly my favorite album of his.

This guy. Also I'm about to go continue trying to learn this on guitar. I'm up to about 1:12 and then it starts getting a bit difficult to follow the time signature.

Can't wait to see those guys (the second link) next month at Summer Slaughter :)

Periphery II. Just grabbed it from Amazon MP3 for $7.99 but they put the whole thing on youtube at reduced quality. I'm enjoying the crap out of it, but a lot of people complain about Spencer's voice. It has a very Protest the Hero quality to it though which I dig. He also should be commended for not using any pitch correction this time around.

Oh, and let's not forget guest solos from John Petrucci, Wes Hauch from The Faceless, and Guthrie Govan from The Aristocrats.

Anyway I think the whole effort really showcases their talent as a band.

Listening to some Gino Vannelli... :o yep! BUT... not the 80's stuff, THE 70's STUFF!!! And it's quite good. Never heard anyone else mix rock, jazz and funk the same way he did.

Jonathan Coulton, "First of May". It is a wonderful song.

Stuff from the Humble Music Bundle as well.

I typically hate on dubstep, but I recently found Omnitica. PROGRESSIVE dubstep/house. The songs actually have a lot of variety for the genre, and anything that involves a good amount of theory is, well, music to my ears.
