"Modest Mouse" A pleasant discovery for me, although they have been around for quiet a few years.

I really enjoy Modest Mouse as well. I use "Good news for People Who Love Bad News" as a reference disc--nice recording and dynamics. Their latest release is excellent as well. On the bad side, I have yet to make it through "The Moon and Antarctica." I've tried four times to no avail.

Preface: I haven't read ANY of this thread.......

Watching The Eagles Farewell Tour DVD. IMO, it's better than Hell Freezes Over. Goosebumps.....

I'll chime in on something that I have saved to my Tivo and watch occasionally. A while back, I Tivo'ed a PBS Soundstage performance w/ Jewel. It was strictly acoustic w/ her, her guitar, and her older music. I forgot how amazing her voice was (and hot to boot). And when it's in HD and Dolby Digital, it's something hard to beat. Much better than her temporary foray into sultry pop.

I recorded the Jewel 2-parter on Soundstage as well, but before I could watch it, my stupid DVR hiccuped and wiped out everything on it!

I'll have to keep my eye out for it; I've always liked Jewel.

Do you guys know of a good source to buy any of the Soundstage series DVD concerts? I have a 'Best Of, Season (something or other)' DVD but can't find a whole concert DVD on any particular artist.

Listened to the BBC Proms Concert 48 , of last Sunday, which is still available for replay today and tomorrow(until midnight London time). It was rather unusual and inspiring; the orchestra was the Venezuelan Youth Orchestra which comes from their program that involves hundreds of thousands of kids. The purpose is to take impoverished kids, often involved in violence and prostitution on the streets, and teach them to play classical music, giving them exposure to the beauty rather than the ugliness of the world.

The program includes the Shostakovich 10th Symphony, music from Bernstein's West Side Story, and several Latin American selections. Excellent playing, received with great enthusiasm by the audience, rather wildly so for supposedly staid British listeners, especially for the concluding Malambo from Ginastera's Estancia.

I also clicked on the Reviews and they indicate that this was quite a thrilling experience for those in attendance. Wish I was there, but I'm glad to get at least some part of it from the audio stream.

Actually that would be good to know. I checked my Tivo and upcoming ones are Macy Gray, Robert Plant and Chris Isaak.
