i would have been a quarter of a century old, and rarely listened to the radio, as the reception was atrocious most nights. Did catch it on the car(escort van) radio once in a while, but then the noise from the van engine etc made it hard to hear.

I was 17, and probably listening to it.  Great choice - a few I probably didn't appreciate back then, but these days they're all good!

Happy memories!
I remember making a cassette of the show from our dad's music centre which had VHF radio.
I was 16 but those tracks I never tire of hearing.
Thanks for reminding me.

Two new listens.

Ready or Not - Grateful Dead. This is a reconstruction of what was meant to be their next studio album but using live recordings of the songs that were intended for inclusion. I am a casual Deadhead, in as much as I have all of the studio albums and all of the "official" live albums but none of the official bootlegs (Dicks Picks, Dave's Picks etc). I always think that in order to be a true Deadhead you would need to listen to nobody else at all because of the sheer volume of material available. Anyway, I am not sure what the view of this is amongst the faithful but, a couple of ragged vocals aside, I think this is a really enjoyable collection with Days Between providing an elegant epitaph for Jerry Garcia.

American Utopia On Broadway - David Byrne. I think this may be one of my favourite records of the year. I know the familiarity of the material makes it an easy listen and I know having seen the show when it was in the UK provides an element of nostalgia but the playing here is outstanding and it is just a joy from start to finish. Still hoping for a blu ray and/or 5.1 mix to restore the extraordinary visuals and immersive sensation of the show.

Thanks for the Dead review Al. I'm more or less on the same place with Grateful Dead as you are, apart from I have a few Dicks Picks. I saw ready or not in an independent store and almost bought it out of curiosity.  As it is, it's on my (long) short list.

Far from my fave Dead period (of course), but I was very pleasantly surprised by RoN.  I like it.

A French prog rock band Lazuli who I saw mention of on the Big Big Train website so thought I’d investigate...  I’m very glad I did  Cheesy

Check out this guitar...

Ralph McTell's  new one. Like the songs but not the production. The best one is the single live track.

I didn't venture any further back than Down the Dustpipe, and didn't venture any further forward than Dear John.  So definitely mighty.

To celebrate getting my ticket for Steve Hackett's November 2020 tour, I'm listening to Seconds Out by Genesis.
