Too bad. I also loved the debut and found No Tellin' Lies to be disappointing. In spite of that, I remained hopeful and I did grab 3.V immediately upon its release and was pleased. It has stuck with me all through these years.

I wish I could say the same! I got the debut back when it first came out and loved every song (still do!). Saw them live around that time too and they were outstanding. I got "No Tellin' Lies" when that came out as well and that was a major disappointment; kinda got me off the bandwagon though I never stopped appreciating the debut. But since I didn't care for the sophomore effort, I just never got 3.V. Heard good things about it here and there over the years though so figured I should check it out...

And luck would have it that I came across a used copy for $6 last week so I grabbed it. But I should have previewed on YouTube first 'cos it's not my cuppa tea: 80's sounding drums (gated, heavy reverb), too many keyboards and so-so songs imo. But I still wanted to give it a full listen, so when I got home I went to put it on my computer so I could add it to my ipod, which is when I found that my brother had downloaded it and given me a full copy of the album (mp3) on my hard drive that I'd completely forgotten about, so.... I really kinda wish I had my $6 back, lol.

Fischman, yes, the Black Star Riders are really good. You'll like the first as much as the 2nd. You have to give them credit also for the guts to pick a new name instead of recording under the Thin Lizzy name which they were using while touring and doing Thin Lizzy stuff. They didn't want to tarnish the Thin Lizzy legacy but I think they've enhanced it even if it's under a different name. Kudos.

I have been meaning to pick up Clapton's first solo record for some time. I am not crazy about the brass on some of the songs. This has kept me from upgrading sooner. Plus I have most of the great songs off of the album on other discs, like Crossroads and various live versions. I wanted to finally pick up a good copy on CD. There is one underrated song on it that I have always loved and that's the ballad, "Easy Now". It's not on most compilations, I think I first heard it on my old vinyl copy of Eric Clapton "At His Best" which I no longer have, I am not sure where it went but I may have sold it years ago. There are some really great songs on the record though and I figured I would get the deluxe version to hear what the Delaney Bramlett mixes sound like too.

Fischman says:
WM,
I was pleasantly surprised. I picked it up mostly because it was a "type" of music I like, which is no guarantee. But it turns out it has a lot going for it beyond merely fitting neatly into a genre I generally like. I'm going to have to go back and pick up the first one and I'll be on the lookout for the next.

That self-titled Clapton is a great disc -- another one for which I need to replace my scratchy, abused vinyl.

Ones I've acquired since my last post:

Cheap Trick- s/t & At Budokan
Black Sabbath- Mob Rules(Deluxe ed.)
The Beach Boys- Smile Sessions(2 disc)
Neil Young & the Bluenotes- Blue Note Cafe

Dave says:
Family and friends were overly generous with gift cards this birthday due to my recent unemployment. They all said we want you to buy new music so I did. Brother did I ever!

**Jeff Buckley - You And I (demos)
**Johnny Cash - Unchained In A Rusty Cage (live @ Irving Plaza in NYC 7/9/96 during his Rick Ruben resurgence - great album)
**Dion - Tank Full Of Blues (I can't recommend this album enough, simply great. It's hard to believe this is the same guy who sang 'Runaround Sue'. 9 of the 11 songs are co-written by Dion also)
**Dion - New York Is My Home (I haven't listened to this yet)
**Bill Evans - Some Other Time: The Lost Session From The Black Forest. Recorded 6/20/68 with: Eddie Gomez -Stand-Up Bass and Jack DeJohnette - Drums. A nice listen after a hard day at work.
**Jerry Garcia & Howard Wales: Up From The Desert; Boston Symphony Hall 1/26/72
**Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders: Pacific High Studios 6/2/72 (also with Bill Kreutzman & John Kahn)
**Jerry Garcia & Merl Saunders: The System; Lion's Share - San Anselmo, CA 12/28/72
**Jerry Garcia Band - Don't Let Go; 5/21/76 Orpheum Theatre SF, Ca. (original JGB with Keith & Donna Godcheaux)
**Grateful Dead - July '78 Box Set (5 shows in the Midwest - 'nuff said)
**King Crimson - Live in Toronto 11/20/15 (Triple drummer configuration)
**The Kinks - Everybody's In Show-Biz (Legacy Edition 2 CD. 1 outtake, 2 alternate mixes, and an early version of 'Money Talks'. Also more live material than the earlier edition.
**Bob Mould - Patch The Sky
**New York Dolls - A Hard Night's Day ( this should have been released instead of the polished record co. albums. This is nasty, sleazy, greasy where's the liquor cabinet we've come for your daughters rock and roll)
**Iggy Pop - Post Pop Depression (Iggy's swan song?)
**Prince - Lovesexy (anytime I play it I still have to turn the cover over; you'd think I'd be used to it after 25+ years lol)
**Prince & 3RDEYEGIRL - Plecrumelectrum (the only one so far that holds up with his earlier work; harder edged than usual)
**Prince - Art Oficial Age (it was time for him to stop trying to discover the next big thing and concentrate on HIS music)
**Prince - Hit N Run Phase One
**Prince - Hit N Run Phase Two
** Radio Birdman - Radios Appear (released in 1978, this is the real deal. These gents and the Saints were Australia's answer to the punk movement in the US and England)
** Radio Birdman - Living Eyes
** Todd Rundgren - Box 'O Todd (Disc 1 is Todd and The Hello People live in Phila. in 1971 / Disc 2 is Todd and the Hello People at Ultrasonic Studios in 1972 / Disc 3 is Todd live from Counterpart Studios in Cincinnati 11/11/73)
**Santana - IV
**Paul Simon - Stranger To Stranger (like all Simon's album it needs repeat listens to works it's charms. Coincidentily, Dion sings on 'New York Is My Home', 1 of 4 bonus tracks on the deluxe edition)
**Stills-Young Band - Long May You Run
**Tragically Hip - Up To Here (highly underrated Canadian band. Will sell out 2 nights at any Canadian arena and then play small clubs here in the US)
**Tragically Hip - Trouble At The Henhouse (see above)
**Tragically Hip - In Between Evolution (again see above)
**Tragically Hip - We Are The Same (they've had the same band line-up for years)
**Velvet Underground - The Complete Matrix Tapes (actually sound pretty good. Lou and the band are in fine form)
**Neil Young - Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968
**Neil Young - Le Noise
**Neil Young - A Letter Home
**Neil Young - Storytone
**Neil Young - Bluenote Cafe'
**Neil Young & The Promise Of The Real - Monsanto Years (great to hear Neil rocking' again)
**Frank Zappa - Road Tapes Vol. 1: 8/25/68 Kerrisdale Arena - Vancouver,B.C.
**Frank Zappa - Road Tapes Vol. 2: 8/23-24/73 Finlandia Hall - Helsinki, Finland
**Frank Zappa - Road Tapes Vol. 3: 7/5/70 Tyrone Guthrie Theater - Minnapolis, MN

There's not much to say about Young or Zappa that hasn't already been said ad nauseam.

On the way:
**Johnny Cash - 20(!) CD Box Set (from Amazon UK)
**Flatt & Scruggs - The Mercury Years
**Jerry Garcia - Garcialive Vol. 6 (with Legion Of Mary)
**Stanley Bros. - The Mercury Years
**Bear Family Records - Blowing The Fuse R&B series 1945-1950 (each year represented by 1 CD)
