When it doesn't fit anywhere else

Other Bands?

Postby Pigpen » Tue Jun 12, 2007 9:10 pm

Well for a good while ive had a good pool of music to listen too, school is now out for me and im going to New York for a week to see my fellow New York jews. Im officially out of music, the Deads always there but I need more then that. I like Phish, Quicksilver, Hot Tuna, Lou Reed, Neil Young lately amoung others. I dont really want anymore jam band stuff to be honest, unless you think it would be really perfect. Thanks a lot.

really no jam bands? heres a few for you then

Beatles, Stones, The Band, Black Crowes, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Hendrix, anything with Clapton (Blind Faith, Cream, Derek and the Dominoes), Joe Satriani, Allman Brothers, Medeski Martin and Wood, Little Feat (last few border on jam band, but are well worth the recommendation IMO)

If you are trying to broaden you're horizons, try out some reggae. I particularly enjoy it in the summer. Bob Marley (get past the greatest hits, he has a lot of albums), Jimmy Cliff (esp. The Harder They Come disc), Peter Tosh

You should also take a look at the recent jazz/blues thread if you're into that, some real good suggestions there.

Im lookin for some more "solid" bands if that makes any sense. Ive listened to about 2.5 to 3.5 hours of Dead a day for the last year so... :shock:

by "solid" do you mean like undercover brother "solid", like soul bands. Cause if so check out some live otis redding, james brown, Old school areatha franklin and ray charles,taj mahal, big brother and the holding company, richie havens, and sly and the faimly stone.

I always go back to the blues during the summer time. Muddy waters and buddy guy and the lot.

How do you feel about Bluegrass? Del McCoury, Doc Watson, etc.

If not, how about Talking Heads, Wilco, The Meters, Stevie Wonder.

When you say "solid", I'm gonna assume that you're talking good albums all the way through - no one-hit-wonders, or fluffed up rock bands.

Personally, I prefer live music, so here's some suggestions.

Joe Cocker - Mad Dogs & Englishmen
Johnny Cash - Live at Fulsom Prison
Bob Marley - Babylon by Bus

Other good stuff:
Crosby, Still & Nash - greatest hits
Rolling Stones - 40 licks
Derek & the Dominoes - Layla & other assorted love songs

In popular rock type music I often revert to two or three camps:

Neil Young
Jackson Browne
Byb Dylan
Joni Mitchell
Nick Drake
Townes Van Zandt
John Martyn
Richard Thompson

Alt-Countryish rock(whatever you wanna call it!):
The Jayhawks
Son Volt
Uncle Tupelo
Lucinda Williams
Dinosaur Jr

The straight kick ass bands:
Cowboy Junkies
The Byrds
The Band
Rolling Stones
Crosby Stills and Nash
Allman Brothers
Janis Joplin and Bands
Hendrix and Bands
Jefferson Airplane

And....thats not even covering straight up jazz, folk and bluegrass or the blues and classical.

So much great music out there. The GD aren't going anywhere, so discover some other stuff...

theres too many good to decent bands to list, although 3.5-5 hours of studio music aint my bag, and im willin to bet if you love Jerry youll get sick of hearin that same old album over and over.

the Clash
the Pixies
The Sensational Alex Harvey Band

how about The Beatles?
