Just read about Jeff Healey too. I met him and his wife at a record show ages ago. He was buying 78s. He would pull them out of the sleeve and feel the grooves all the way around. It was incredible to watch. He was a very nice guy. Sad loss.

Hey Merchman,

Yes we are getting that lousy weather. It was up in the 50's today, then 6pm came, another alberta clipper moved through, it is back down to 32 right now and sleeting. I think we are supposed to get another 3" by tomorrow at 6am. That puts us almost to 60" this year...

I was just listening to my Diana Krall Live in Paris concert DVD, I just don't see how my system could sound any better. \:\)

I do need to take some new pictures as the website is a bit outdated...

I heard he had quite the collection of 78s (like 25K plus).
I was just talking to a friend that saw him perform with EC at Alpine Valley the night before SRV's copter went down (which EC was suppose to be on).
Really I was just aware of ihs blues-rock stuff. Need to liisten to some of his jazz.

I am envious. The more I watch their DVD (Arriving Somewhere...) I wish that they would do a major tour of North America. I think that there popularity is slowly building. Next to Neil Peart, Gavin Harrison is my second favorite drummer.

Yeah, I thought I would pull out my old Diana Krall avatar from years ago. I was listening to her tonight and it sounded awesome. \:\)

I use to listen to a lot of Prog-rock, stuff that many people called pretentious and bombastic. I am still a big fan of Yes and I will be going to see Jon Anderson at the same place I saw P. Tree. These guys are serious musicians, they bring intellect as well as emotion to their music. Some of it is challenging and requires repeated exposure, but the stuff that sticks with me tends to be the stuff that I may not have liked on the first listen but grew to like as I re-examined and began to understand it.

Not to say I don't appreciate stuff that engages immediately, but a lot of that stuff gets old real fast.

Hey Murph!

I agree "Signify" is a hard album to get into. I think it's a good album, buy too gloomy and dark. Have you heard other material by Porcupine Tree? I would highly suggest the albums, "Stupid Dream", "In Abestia", or "Deadwing"...the latter two being great rock albums.


You are correct, Sonicfox, it was my first run in with Porcupine Tree. Signify, as a whole, isn't my thing but they obviously are serious about thier music so I will try to hunt down your recommendations and give one of them a try.
