mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; format=flowed

hello all,

i have one ticket for this saturday's show at the cape cod melody tent in
hyannis for sale.

it is section g row 15 seat 21.

the ticket was $42.75 with all the fees, but i am willing to sell it for
$35.

if anyone is interested, please email asap.  i am leaving friday morning for
the hampton beach
show and won't have access to email.

since it's so close to the date mailing it is not an option, so i'd be glad
to meet the buyer outside
before the show for the exchange.

thanks a bunch!

hello again,

i know it seems like i'm some ticket pimp or something but alas i am just an
overzealous ticket buyer, who's plans always seem to go awray.  sorry, i
digress...

i have 2 tickets to see michelle malone at eddie's attic 6/25 for the 9:30
show.  they are $15
each, and i know from last year's mm show, it will sell out (double that
fact for it being pride weekend in atlanta).

thanks.

y'all, but partcularly all y'all in chicagoland,

i'm writing to invite you to a house concert this sunday with
the one and only beth amsel, who is truly one of the most
fabulous folk singers any of us will be lucky enough to see
(cue neil et al.) i say "invite" because the friend of mine
who's hosting it didn't want to fling the doors wide and make
it totally public. but i ran the idea of posting it by her,
and she's just okayed it.

the concert is this coming sunday, june 12, at 7:30pm, in hyde
park (university of chicago neighborhood.) suggested donation
is $12. and it'll be awesome. email me for details if you're
interested - there are about ten spots left and we could
probably squeeze in one or two more if we had to, but all the
same, it helps to know in advance.

mandy

for much of the nineties, i made mix tapes for a sort of music journal.  i
thought, well, i would like my children to hear what i was listening to way
back in 1994.

so, in my cassette player in my '94 acura, is a mix tape, circa 1997.  this
was made a few months before the fateful day in december when i first heard
power of two.  i actually want to not mention one particular song/group, but
i will.

before i listened to indigo girls i listened to buffalo springfield, eagles,
heart, csny, joni mitchell, tim buckley (father of jeff buckley), linda
ronstadt, and the dead.  popular radio music in the late 80's and 90's
didn't move me. that's also about the time i started playing traditional
irish music, so i started collecting a lot of that stuff too.  when i
happened to hear closer to fine, i think in the local tower on sunset, i was
hooked.

>>if you go waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy back, herman's hermits (saw them in
concert >>at the fox theater

herman's hermits was the first rock concert i ever went to at the tender age
of 14. they played the rose bowl in pasadena ca with the bobby fuller four,
midnighters, and the great scots (never to be heard of after that concert)
as the opening acts. the tickets were a whopping 6.50.  most concerts were
3.00 in la at that time. the beatles at 10.00 a pop was outrageous at the
time! lol!

my list is left field of the igs:

well my first concert was styx on the kilroy was here tour (domo arigato,
mr. roboto).
i was at one time a huge quiet riot, black sabbath, ozzy, night ranger,
motley crue fan. all things metal.

then there was the punk phase, local punk shows galore, bad brains!!!!

i got the self titled ig album in high school, they found a corner in that
sea of madness to hang out in. i held onto a lot of the punk, kept black
sabbath(i mean the first 4 black sabbath albums to this day hold the top 4
positions of the greatest rock albums of all-time) and i've held onto the
igs from back then. added tons of blues and reggae, and that's were i am
today.

who doubts many people on the list would own up to being a quiet riot
fan..... come on feel the noise people

i started listening to ig when i was 11 and becoming old enough to
start listening to my own music (1989).  before that, it was really
just my mother's oldies ("classic hits of the 50s and 60s") station in
her car, or my father's frank sinatra (lord help me!). ;)  ig was
really the first music that i listened to that was my own, not my
parents'.

this is a fun thread.

i grew up in the '80s but mostly was unmoved by 80s pop and hair metal. i
went back to the music of the 60s and 70s and that formed the core of my
tastes. so, pre ig, i was listening to fleetwood mac/stevie nicks (my
reigning fave until discovering tori amos), eagles, tom petty, neil young,
dylan (lots of dylan, like everyday), pink floyd, marillion (80s prog rock
with amazing lyrics), led zepplin, jimi hendrix, grateful dead, heart, rush,
suzanne vega, styx, jefferson airplane, jethro tull, bob seger (so
embarassing!), the who, harry chapin (god, how good is the live album!), and
the beatles. i also had just discovered the genius of miles davis a couple
months before ig, so i was branching out into jazz. i think joni mitchell
was a post-ig find, but i'm not sure.

i vividly remember so many days on the front porch lounging in the sun or
playing d&d with my buds, with these songs as the soundtrack. i remember the
albums (and i had most of these on album--how cool were the jackets of deja
vu and thick as a brick?) that mattered so much as i crossed the treacherous
landscape of adolescence: rumours, dark side of the moon, bringing it all
back home, blood on the tracks, solitude standing, bella donna, hotel
california, harvest, american beauty, misplaced childhood, wish you were
here, surrealistic pillow, building the perfect beast, abbey road, who's
next, and on and on. i can feel the longing i felt then just thinking of
these things. the hope and dread of the possible futures and the fear and
freedom of my growing queer feelings.

nothing takes you back like music. nothing.

i've enjoyed reading your lists. keep 'em coming.

geez,
.
first song i ever wanted to hear twice: "aquarius / let the sunshine in" by
the fifth dimension.  (my babysitter had the 45.)
.
junior high (early '70s): the jackson 5.  (there's no way to adequately
explain to any white person what a revelation it was for them to burst onto
the scene.  before that, there were no images of black youth that were so
undeniably great and joyful.  before that, all we had was buckwheat and
stymie from the little rascals, some kind of ignorant sight gag.  you don't
know what you're missing until it comes along and you realize, "where has
that been all along?"  in the neighborhood garage band, all of a sudden it
was the little kids who got to be the star imitating michael.  that turned
everything on its head.)
.
high school / college (mid-late '70s): elton john.  i thought he was a
country singer from iowa before i finally heard that british accent in an
interview.  i took piano lessons as a kid, but it was the shimmering guitar
in "rocket man" that took me from "i like that song" to "i like that
artist".  eagles and fleetwood mac were too popular to ignore.  throw in
rush in there somewhere.
.
grad school (early-mid '80s): phil collins, the police.  the big problem
was that their popularity lagged behind their best work.  "face value" and
"hello, i must be going" are a fantastic pair of albums but phil became a
household name behind "no jacket required" and "sussudio".  yuck.
"synchronicity" was the police's big-selling album but it's pretty bad,
actually.  "ghost in the machine" is great.  u2 for sure.  throw in early
randy travis in there somewhere.
.
late '80s.  rem.  "life's rich pageant", specifically.  that also turned my
ear away from pure commercial pop music and i started purposely listening
to local college radio (georgia state's wras, specifically.)  in fall '88,
i heard a song i thought was called "missed appointment" by a guy with such
a thick english accent that i couldn't figure out what he was saying.  the
way wras would play 20 songs in a row before telling you the names of any
song/artist, it took me until december before i figured out the artist/song
was billy bragg and "must i paint you a picture".  in spring '89, i saw
"closer to fine" on mtv and in the summer, 7/8/89 specifically, i saw billy
bragg and indigo girls (twice) live for the first time all on the same day
. . . and nothing was ever the same.

oh dear, i had my musicals phase too. there was a time when i
was thirteen that i listened to cats at least twice a day. i
try to forget those times now.

before ig i had probably a dozen cds that i really liked, and
listened to a lot, but my experience of chasing down
everything a partcular band has done began with them.

the first album i ever owned (hannukah gift, on cd) was the
immaculate collection, which i still think is great. the first
album i ever bought for myself was rem's out of time. this was
shortly after automatic for the people came out, which i
remember because the guy at the music store asked me if i
wanted their new one, and i had to tell him i didn't know. i
did love rem enough to get aftm a few years later.

the closest thing to ig was simon and garfunkel, whose
greatest hits i listened to obsessively in the year before i
first heard ig (although it never occurred to me to go get
another album.) other than that, it was musicals and
fringe/humor music for me: i had a brief fling with les
miserables. the other ones i remember are flood (they might be
giants) and the weird al yankovic album with the nirvana
parody cover.

since then, i've been really into indie folk (although that's
a harder thing to mainain in the near-folkless midwest) and,
um, medieval polyphony. that fits right in, doesn't it?

even better, slade, the british group whose material was remade by
quiet riot...

i was listening to, um, well, it's a varied and embarrassing list...
in no particular order:

lots of christian rock (leslie nee sam phillips is still brilliant,
although no longer doing xian music), styx, rush, yes, genesis (and
attached groups), the music of cosmos and related recordings (vangelis,
synergy), mannheim steamroller's fresh aire albums (no. 2 is
brilliant), steve reich, philip glass, john denver (here is where
things get scary), barry manilow, abba, the carpenters, peter paul &
mary, and so on and so on...

but then in swept a+e.

--that's pretty much what i listented to growing up. :-) i was totally into "the partridge family." anyone remember the interview where amy said the first record she bought was a partridge family one? ;-)

after that "phase" i listened to a lot of pop--elton, joni, streisand, neil diamond (a big favorite of my parents), eagles, fleetwood mac, heart, james taylor, carly simon, carole king--whatever was on the radio at the time.

then in 8th grade (1976ish) i discovered harder rock and roll when some of my art classmates brought in their favorite records to listen to while we were working on our projects. one kid brought in the aerosmith "rocks" album and i was turned on by that ;-)

in 1983, mtv came on in my house. my brother loved the punk bands and i liked the harder rock bands like journey (actually, i was into them and van halen when i was in high school), night ranger, loverboy... i adored pat benatar for quite awhile. stevie nicks and bruce springsteen were often on my player, too. ;-)

after college (where i remember first-hearing the bangles, cyndi lauper, and madonna) i went back into the harder bands--especially after hearing bon jovi on the radio for the first time. ;-) but i couldn't stand a lot of the hair bands like poison, warrant and motley crue. i just got pickier. i guess i knew even back in the 1980s that bon jovi had "staying power"--and by golly i was right!

it was a bon jovi fan-friend, actually, who told me back in 1989 that she heard this song by ig that she was really into--"closer to fine." but i didn't seem to care until after our friendship fizzled by 1992 (long story). at that point i was noticing a "change in the musical air," so to speak, so i decided to look into it. next thing i knew i was paying attention to the videos by nirvana, pearl jam, soundgarden, and such on mtv. i had seen tori amos' "silent all these years" video by then, too.

then one day i was flipping the radio dial and ran into a great "little" eclectic station called kfmg (where i live outside of des moines, iowa) that was playing ig a lot, along with so much other eclectic and progressive music fare. i was discovering new musical worlds. i found myself listening to the dave matthews band, sonia dada, jewel (until she went pop--not a good move on her part if you ask me ;-), sheryl crow and wilco a lot. michele malone, too. lots of blues and folk. i needed all that. :-)

today i'm pretty much in the same listening pattern. only kfmg didn't last beyond the summer of (i think) 1996, when it was sold to a "corporation." now i get any kind of eclectic radio fix by listening to kuni, either online or on a really good night on my radio. ;-)

besides ig i also listen to regularly--still wilco, tori, and sonia dada. i have also included sleater-kinney, ani difranco, bright eyes, and if i need a "hard fix," audioslave. i think the music climate is getting better--there's good sounds to discover again. :-)

--as you can see by the lengthy post i just made, i dabbled into the harder tunes, too. suffice it to say i remember hearing "come on feel the noise" to death on the tape player of the 8 & 10 year-old boys i was babysitting for awhile and got tired of quiet riot real quick. ;-(

>john denver, barry manilow, the carpenters, peter paul & mary...

--they wre big favorites of my parents' too. they saw peter paul & mary a few years' ago and were disappointed by their talking too much about politics in their act. i, personally, should have went instead of them--i wouldn't have minded. ;-)

as long as we are making embarrassing admissions, the first vinyl (whatever happened to it?) single i ever bought was "heartbeat, it's a lovebeat" by the defranco family when i was in elementary school. the second single i bought was "space race" by billy preston (some of my cousins knew him but that's another story).

growing up in colorado, i became a big john denver fan, that was my intro to folk music, along with an occasional peter, paul and mary or irish rovers song. i kind of liked the whole 1970's singer-songwriter thing with bruce springsteen, billy joel, carly simon, stevie wonder and bob seger standing out. i also liked blondie and kim carnes.

we will bypass my disco years; the albums i started buying in college in the 1980's include: prettymuch everything by john mellencamp (including the album he produced for mitch ryder), some davd bowie, go-go's, again springsteen, and the blasters (then solo dave alvin). after college: 10,000 maniacs, some rem, lone justice and solo maria mckee, los lobos and tracy chapman. then in 1989, i discovered both indigo girls and texas (i believe it was the same day) and things haven't been the same...

now i'm listening to: garbage (their last two albums), ig and texas of course, mary lou lord and the sundays (i wish they'd do another album).

subject: re: what did you listen to before ig? nigc


oh dear, i had my musicals phase too. there was a time when i
was thirteen that i listened to cats at least twice a day. i
try to forget those times now.

before ig i had probably a dozen cds that i really liked, and
listened to a lot, but my experience of chasing down
everything a partcular band has done began with them.

the first album i ever owned (hannukah gift, on cd) was the
immaculate collection, which i still think is great. the first
album i ever bought for myself was rem's out of time. this was
shortly after automatic for the people came out, which i
remember because the guy at the music store asked me if i
wanted their new one, and i had to tell him i didn't know. i
did love rem enough to get aftm a few years later.

the closest thing to ig was simon and garfunkel, whose
greatest hits i listened to obsessively in the year before i
first heard ig (although it never occurred to me to go get
another album.) other than that, it was musicals and
fringe/humor music for me: i had a brief fling with les
miserables. the other ones i remember are flood (they might be
giants) and the weird al yankovic album with the nirvana
parody cover.

since then, i've been really into indie folk (although that's
a harder thing to mainain in the near-folkless midwest) and,
um, medieval polyphony. that fits right in, doesn't it?

my first  vinyls were (of course)the patridge family (i was 12 years old!)
then the carpenters and later,

don mcclean's american pie,

all of elton john's early ones (tumbleweed connection is still one of my
favs)

cat stevens, joni mitchell, grateful dead, elo, bad company, heart (still
love dog and butterfly) john denver, little feat, bruce, neil young ( and i
love the neil covers ig does and the neil influenced songs like ar's
"laramie")
led zepp, the who, the beatles............and many more too numerous to list

i know i had a pretty huge vinyl collection when i gave it away during a
brain fart in 1982 (why did i do that????) and in the past 23 years we've
collected a pretty large cd collection..... a friend once said to me, "if
you had cd's in the bank like you have on the walls you'd be rich"

amazing thread diane!

ah, good, someone else more like me. :)

yup, college rock, rem, u2, 10,000 maniacs, the cure, depeche mode, oingo
boingo, new order, the smiths (that was high school) and then in college
smashing pumpkins, nirvana, pixies, nin, soundgarden, red hot chili
peppers, my life with the thrill kill kult, the the, tori amos and that was
also the time period i got into the ig (circa 1992). then in the mid-90's
it was cake, soul coughing, beck, cherry poppin' daddies, squirrel nut
zippers, sublime, and more recently things like vast, white stripes,
strokes, ima robot, and the aquabats. i still listen to all of it.

i did listen to a lot of folk music growing up cause that's what my parents
were into - cat stevens, peter paul and mary, new christy minstrels, woody
and arlo guthrie, pete seeger, etc and also what they used to call "adult
contemporary" - neil diamond, john denver, jim croce, james taylor, oh and
they were also nuts for musicals - sound of music, south pacific, flower
drum song, godspell.

i also went through an unfortunate bout with christian rock and had quite
the collection of amy grant on vinyl. that to my eternal shame was my first
concert, at 13.

subject:      nigc: looking for song suggestions
mime-version: 1.0
content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

hi everyone,

i do a weekly internet radio show with a friend where we play music and
basically talk about whatever comes into our heads for three hours.  we
like doing what we call a "special" every so often and just focusing on a
particular type of music or song or whatever.  we have two in mind
currently (one of which we'll do tomorrow) and i'd love to hear song ideas
from anyone on this list who has them.

one of them will be on kissing songs - songs with kiss in the title.
(naturally i already have language or the kiss written down.)  and the
other is what we're calling alternate love songs, and by that we mean songs
that people might call "their song" for their partner if they actually
heard it.  (power of two is a good example.)

musically we tend towards songs from the last twenty years.  we play a lot
of acoustic or singer songwriter stuff like ig, patty griffin, shawn colvin
and so on.  and we play good comercial stuff that radio has forgotten
about.  also, being australian, we play australian stuff that fits into
both those categories that we think the rest of the world would like if
they heard it.

so if you have any song ideas for either or both of our specials please
either write to me at amanda@hitsandpieces.net or reply to this on list.
whichever works.

take care everyone,
amanda.

indigo girls - a melody tent singalong=20
by susan milton
staff writer
hyannis - saturday night, i was the only person in the melody tent who =
didn=92t know the words to the songs sung by the indigo girls, the =
opening concert of the summer season.=20
nobody had told me there was a new requirement for concert-going.=20
out of curiousity, i had signed up to review the duo, singers for over =
20 years with a reputation for delivering good music. and, after all, =
=93indigo=94 is one of my favorite words.


i first knowingly heard indigo girls in =93boys on the side=94 =96 the =
1995 tear-jerker of a movie. their =93power of two=94 was one of my =
favorite songs on that excellent soundtrack of women singers such as =
bonnie raitt, cheryl crowe and the cranberries. that sweet ballad of =
harmony ... =93adding up the total of a love that=92s true, multiply =
life by the power of two,=94 surprised me because i had thought the =
indigo girls were more hard rock. of course, i also had heard, =93closer =
to fine,=94 their first hit in 1989 on the epic label for which amy ray =
and emily saliers had won a grammy for best contemporary fold recording. =
i just didn=92t know they were singing it until i dug into their =
history.=20
they met in grade school in decatur, ga., started singing together in =
high school, split for a bit to go to different colleges, then =
reconnected to begin a career of singing and playing that=92s lasted for =
over two decades and eight albums, at least.=20
saturday night i also learned is that the indigo girls, those =
troubadours of troubled hearts and good conscience, don=92t even need to =
sing at their own concert. their loyal fans sing - and they did a very =
good job through 16 songs and three encores before the melody tent=92s =
10:30 p.m. curfew.
and who knew there would be tests? frequently amy ray and emily saliers =
of indigo girls would stop singing and the tent chorus didn=92t miss a =
syllable.=20
from their first hit and perhaps best-known song, =93closer to fine,=94 =
recorded in 1989 for epic, to =93heartache for everyone from their 2004 =
cd, the indigo girls had all the back-up vocals they needed in the =
melody tent where they played, just the two of them, without their usual =
back-up band.=20
the only time the crowd was stumped was on songs from their new cd, =
=93rarities.=94 emily saliers sang =93winthrop=94 a melancholy ballad =
that refers to the massachusetts town, and accompanied herself on the =
keyboard. as usual, the lyrics are complex and thoughtful - in =93the =

among the highlights of the concert was the excellent instrumentals - =
guitar, mandolin and banjo - and the often heart-piercing harmony =
between the two voices on stage.
the capacity crowd was dancing in the aisles to =93shame on you=94 and =

dear friend,

please sign this letter from congressperson jjohn
conyers to bush about
the
war in iraq and the downing street memo and send it on
to everyone you
know
who would like to sign and help.

last week rep. conyers asked for 100,000 signatures on
a letter to
bush, and
said he would deliver it personally to bush from u.s.
citizens calling
on
bush for more answers about a 2002 meeting during
which a senior
british
official said intelligence was "being fixed" to
present a case for the
iraq
war.

  as of thursday, he had collected 86,00 signatures. a
number of other
representatives have also signed on with conyers to
this letter. you
can see
their names in the first link below and i have posted
them at the
bottom of
this email.

rep. conyers now wants 250,000 signatures before he
delivers the
letter.
please add your name, if you have not already done so,
and send this on
to
everyone else you know who would like to sign.

in the time it takes you to read this email, bush,
rumsfeld, rove et al
have
murdered more us soldiers and iraqis in iraq.

thanks,

sheila

*congressman john conyers (d-mi) seeks to amass

u.s.
citizens calling on president bush for more answers
about a 2002

during which a senior british official said

to present a case for the iraq war, raw story has
learned.
the congressman's office says conyers hopes to present
the letter to
the

they believe the
letter
could have a "viral effect" and spark new interest in
the steps taken
by the
bush administration in the run-up to the iraq war and
the so-called
"downing
street memo."
...
(conyers: ) "the conventional wisdom, which
unfortunately governs
washington's political discourse, hold that the
american people have
long
ago made peace with the mistakes or deceptions which
led us into war.
help
me prove them all wrong. i want to show the white
house, the press and
my
congressional colleagues that nothing could be further
from the truth.
that is why today i am giving you the opportunity to
sign on to a
letter
asking the same questions of the president that now
nearly 100 members
of
congress have asked. if i get at least 100,000
signatures on this, i
will
personally deliver the letter to the white house."

i've really enjoyed reading people's lists!  how entertaining.  it also
makes me feel young, and at almost 29 that is a feat!  :)

anyway, i grew up listening to my parents oldie station.  elvis, everly
brothers, buddy holly...all those old greats!  then i went into a country
phase, i loved alabama (i still do, shhhh), garth brooks, trisha yearwood
and many other big name country artists.  in the early 90's i really
realized the kind of music that i liked for myself.  i fell in love with
kurt cobain and nirvana.  i was also obsessed with sarah mclaughlin and tori
amos.
somewhere about 1992 my best friend got a tape from one of her friends that
was an ig tape.  her friend didn't like it and decided instead of throwing
it away that we might like it.  we listened to it every single day to and
from school.  we actually wore the tape out and thankfully, that was about
the same time that cd's were becoming popular so we got a cd!  that's how it
all started.  i'm forever thankful to that girl for giving us that tape that
has really changed my life.

yes, i got my new cd on saturday. i've listened to it a few times thru.
i didnt expect to love every song but with 18 to listen to, you can have
a few disappointments, i guess.
for me the cd starts out great. then winthrop and free of hope just
bring it to a screeching halt. back to back these songs just slow the cd
down way to much. waking up to shed your skin remix is just bizarre!
never stop, you have to set the wayback machine and just smile. ghost
with a key change is just ghost to a non muscian like myself. did emily
really think a "beat" version of free in you would get radio play? love
the guitar work in cold as ice. walk your valley needs a few more
listens to see if i really dont like it.
i do have a question. this version of point hope seems slower than the
original. am i imagining that? there are folks out there, like myself,
who have most of the other songs from their orginal cd release, like
uncle johns band and it wont take long. if you dont, its a treat to hear
them here. if you do, its still good music to hear again.
as for the insert. i've seen most of the rare photos on peoples web
pages and the commentaries are so-so. three pages wasted on the words to
walk you valley just looks like filler to me.
you cant please everyone on a cd like this but even if i fastforward
thru 5 or 6 songs, thats still an average length cd for your money.
enjoy the new cd
b.a. nagy

i love a whole lot of music.  i have a cd collection in the thousands,  and i
go to dozens of concerts each year (mostly smaller club shows, with a few
larger ones sprinkled in).  my tastes are broad, but my favorites are my
favorites.

the who is hands down my favorite band.  they're followed by ig,  melissa
etheridge, and bruce springsteen.

other faves include:  ani, melissa ferrick, tuck and patti, otis  redding,
stanley jordan, victor wooten, the beatles, joan armatrading, simon  townshend,
and a ton of others that aren't particularly coming to mind right  now.

i was raised on the grateful dead, the eagles, traffic, little feat, new
riders of the purple sage, loggins and messina, and the allman brothers.

that's it for now.  g'night.

besides amy grant, what i consider to be my "real" first concert was
depeche mode in 1988, when i was 16.

same here. love them then, still love them now. have seen them in concert
twice, i couldn't see them this around because they just came to a small
venue and sold out right away. and i saw the rhcp in 91 with nirvana and
pearl jam *opening* for them (imagine that!). in fact we missed pearl jam
because we were late and didn't know who they were - "pearl who?" (this was
before "alive" had hit).

i forgot to mention in my other email that i also like classic rock like
pink floyd, queen, and led zeppelin, as well as classical, 50's and 60's
stuff (love the platters and johnny mathis) and lots o' other crap - i'm
"eclectic" whatever that means. :)

hey,

i'm not at all embarassed by my first concert. it was stevie nicks in 1986.
i've seen her and fleetwood mac a couple times and it's always a good show.

i've seen ig more times than any other band; i've seen them 13 times. they
are followed by tori amos (9 times with two more shows coming this summer),
bob dylan (4 times), and stevie nicks, dave matthews band, the horse flies,
and the grateful dead (3 times each). bands i've seen twice include blues
traveler, nine inch nails, fleetwood mac, heart, ani difranco, the samples,
ben folds,the noisy neighbors, and donna the buffalo.

my wish list of bands to see is pink floyd (who are reuniting for one show
in the uk! unfair!), radiohead, tool, loreena mckennitt, and pearl jam.

this has been fun. unfortunately, now i must get back to work.

cheers,

tom m.

ok, i'm showing my age here (46)... my first concert was in 1971 to see
three dog night. my parents took my brother and me. i wore a floor length
pale orange gauze caftan to the concert and felt like the coolest 12 year
old on the planet.

my first with friends (no parents) was cat stevens. the thing i remember
most was that his opening act was a magic act and at the end of the act they
stacked three boxes on top of each other twirled it around and the "cat"
popped out of a door in the boxes and started playing his first song.

my husband has kept every single one of his concert ticket stubs and he has
a concert page listing all of his (and ours)
concerts he has attended over the years with reviews of many shows. most of
my ig shows aren't there because i usually go to see them without him. for
anyone who'd like to view it here is the link:

i'm lucky there, nothing embarrassing. my first concert was george benson with a jazz band opening act called sea wind when i was 16.

my second though was styx on the paradise theater tour. yikes!!! my only excuse was that a buddy of mine won the tickets from a radio station so it was free!

i redeemed myself with my third concert: bruce springsteen and the e street band during the river tour! a book about bruce's concerts said that show was one of his great shows and i believe it.

i've seen ig not only in concert several times but i sat in the audience when they were musical guests on the tonight show. the person i've seen live most often is singer-songwriter dave alvin. this is fun!!

my first concert was actually ig - here i'm showing nto so
much my age as my utter lack of exposure to live music in
childhood, because this was was the summer after i graduated
from high school. it was the july 5th, 1997 show at the greek
theatre in berkeley, and i didn't yet know enough about, well,
anything to go back the next day; instead, i spent that day
with the guy i was then angling to date. oh, the foolishness
of youth....

he funny thing is i remember a) buying n*i*s, the last album i
didn't have, a week before the concert so i would recognize
those songs when they played them (ha ha) a) thinking on the
drive up that one of the songs we were sure to hear was joking
(which i didn't hear until they played it at convington this
march, about 25 shows later than i expected. :)

i have no idea where that tape is now. i probably wore it out because i

a retrospective"?  is that a promo cd or something not generally available?

------

c: i'm not much of a clash fan no matter how "important" they supposedly
are, so "clampdown" washes over me without much of a reaction.

idwttai: "i don't want to talk about it" was always a nice demonstration of
their sound, but the song is pretty ordinary.

mlamh: i was hoping we'd get the live version of "mona lisas and mad
hatters" that ig did with elton john himself at the '91 aids walk atlanta,
but this is still a good one.

lmge: "let me go easy" sounds mighty peppy to be a song about someone who's
dying.

w: i've always thought emily's voice is very well suited to be backed by
piano; the song is nice enough but not great; wish she'd write more piano
songs.

foh: vic chesnutt is probably one of the hardest artists to cover
successfully -- they picked a tough one on top of that and didn't really
pull it off.

sys: um ... some people shouldn't rap; this remix only makes it worse.

ns: don't get why emily is embarrassed by this one; it's my favorite emily
track in this whole collection.

g: the key changes probably made it more interesting for them to sing, but
i don't know that it made it any more listenable.

ujb: not a grateful dead fan, either; this certainly doesn't change my mind
about that.

igyms: a very nice one-off collaboration; stipe's voice fits really well
with theirs.

fiy: can't imagine they thought this was more radio-friendly than the
acoustic version we got.

phfoia: still think this is one of the best songs amy's every written, but
it was treated like a throwaway.

rr: not much of an ani difranco fan, either; you'd think ig would be
perfect covering a pure folk song but this comes across as too much of a
performance and not enough just an honest delivery.

cai: again, i've always like this song, don't know why amy's embarrassed by
it; one of my favorite lines from her ever is "if i really need to save
myself  / why can't i just walk out of here?"; the clarity of that thought
helped me quit my job.

wyv: doesn't do much for me.

iwtl: i'm only vaguely familiar with ferron; this one wants to be so
important but it just isn't listenable enough on a musical level for me to
get into the big message it wants to deliver.

f: can't say that i can hear much difference with the five-part harmony
that girlyman supposedly contributes to this that makes it better than
other versions; maybe it's just male voices instead of female voices that
add something a little extra.

------

for an obsessive fan who's already heard or has most of these tracks, it
was hard to get too excited about this release, anyway.  seems like kind of
a wimpy way to fulfill the last album of their contract but i guess that's
more of a reflection of the record company's willingness for the run to be
over as well.  i doubt i'll listen to this cd much at all in the long run.

so this remix of free in you...yikes, that's weird.
other than that, it was totally worth 18 bucks to have
such good recordings of mona lisas, let me go easy,
winthrop, walk your valley, and that great version of
finlandia with girlyman.

my first show was actually the indigo girls.  i saw them at the 9:30
club in washington dc.  that was in 1989.  i was 10 and everyone in
the crowd felt really bad for me cause i was so short so they lifted
me on stage and i sat right in between amy and emily.  amy came out
and said to me that i could stay as long as i did not touch the
monitor wires.  they were so sweet and gave me picks and guitar
strings when amy broke them during a couple of songs.  as soon as
they walked out and started playing i was hooked.  now 43 shows
later, i am still a huge fan and listen to them everyday.  prior to
that, i was listening to rap.  let's just say, that concert changed a
lot of things!  great thread!

a house panel has voted to eliminate all public
funding for npr and pbs, starting with "sesame
street." this would be the most severe cut in the
history of public broadcasting. npr and pbs are under
attack, but americans trust them over the commercial
networks. sign the petition to save npr, pbs and our
local public stations from losing their funding.

dear moveon member,
you know that email petition that keeps circulating
about how congress is slashing funding for npr and
pbs? well, now it's actually true. (really. check the
footnotes if you don't believe us.)

a house panel has voted to eliminate all public
funding for npr and pbs, starting with "sesame
street," "reading rainbow," and other commercial-free
children's shows. if approved, this would be the most
severe cut in the history of public broadcasting,
threatening to pull the plug on big bird, cookie
monster and oscar the grouch.

sign the petition telling congress to save npr and
pbs:

http://www.moveon.org/publicbroadcasting/?id=5663-2482199-.vv78cf.hdvmbrsznzieng&t=3

if we can reach 250,000 signatures by the end of the
week, we'll put congress on notice. after you sign the
petition, please pass this message along to any
friends, neighbors or co-workers who count on npr and
pbs.

the cuts would slash 25% of the federal funding this
year-$100 million-and end funding altogether within
two years.1 in particular, the loss could kill beloved
children's shows like "sesame street," "clifford the
big red dog," "arthur" and "postcards from buster."
rural stations and those serving low-income
communities might not survive. other stations would
have to increase corporate sponsorships.

this shameful vote is only the latest partisan assault
on public tv and radio. the corporation for public
broadcasting, which exists to shield public tv and
radio from political pressure, is now chaired by
kenneth tomlinson, a staunch republican close to the
white house. tomlinson has already forced one-sided
conservative programs on the air, even though
tomlinson's own surveys show that most people consider
npr "fair and balanced" and they actually trust public
broadcasting more than commercial network news.2

tomlinson also spent taxpayer dollars on a witch hunt
to root out "liberal bias," including a secret
investigation of bill moyers and pbs' popular
investigative show, "now." even though the public paid
for the investigation, tomlinson has refused to
release the findings.3

the lawmakers who proposed the cuts aren't just trying
to save money in the budget-they're trying to decimate
any news outlets who question those in power. this is
an ideological attack on our free press.

talk about bad timing. every day brings another story
about media consolidation. radio, tv stations and
newspapers are increasingly controlled by a few
massive corporate conglomerates trying to maximize
profits at the expense of quality journalism. now more
than ever, we need publicly funded media who will ask
hard questions and focus on stories that affect real
people, instead of michael jackson and the runaway
bride.

as the house and senate consider this frightening
effort to kill public broadcasting, they need to hear
from its owners-you.

"memories..."
actually my mom's barbra streisand's greatest hits was often on the
turntable as we cleaned the house when i was growing up...that and her jim
croce, john denver and gladys knight and the pips (i actually prefer gladys'
version of "the way we were")!

we also listened to my dad's rolling stones records and some various odd 45s
and lps--anything from elvis and the beatles to allan sherman ("hello
mudduh, hello fadduh") and bob newhart.

my first concert was david cassidy at the arie crown theatre in chicago.
i've also seen styx, the rolling stones (twice), the blues brothers, the
beach boys, csn, the b-52s and many others.

i remember going to 7th and 8th grade dances where elton john's greatest
hits songs were the most memorable--especially for slow dances!

i spent a lot of my part-time jobs money on records during high school and
early years of college (when i started to amass cassette tapes!): styx,
supertramp, led zeppelin, the rolling stones, the who, and then just about
every grateful dead album (and jerry garcia, bobby and the midnights, and
the rhythm devils...etc). went to a ton of dead shows from 1979-1984.

then in college got heavily into talking heads, the pretenders and
especially patti smith!!!

but it's been mostly ig for the last 16 years!

peace,
michele
