phil and friends carry on in fine fashion !
on April 26, 2013
i just got this and could not believe how low the price was. when i got it, it was brand new and included the dvd too . all for around $5. i hear a lot of phil and friends on the dead channel on pandora and have learned to enjoy it for what it is,, not comparing it to old dead stuff. if i want that,, i'll listen to the dead. i love this incarnation of phil and friends and also think joan is a special talent.there is a nice song selection on this cd and i enjoy their interpretations of great dead songs. for my ears, they are right on, i love it !! highlights for me are a lovely cosmic charlie,, great vocals and strong bass. nice jam on scarlet beg. a cool, they love each other. and a very good and far out,, turn on your love light....disc 2:: the wheel is a nice tribute to jerry. dark star// morning dew// i know you rider/and then / the other one// dark star// the other one, are great second set jams !! these guys play very well together and the new and different sounds are fun and enjoyable;; the horns and the violin add a really nice dimension to many of the tunes.. i think you will like hearing what phil is doing, post dead. there are many, many releases out there by phil and his friends. i also like what he has done with trey a. and warren h. as band mates as well as many others. it is nice to remember, the music never stops
