Dinner Solo, but Listening

…To Dave Matthews Band. I’ve had a lot of his stuff forever, since early ’80s. Love it. Here’s Rapunzel, Live, Chicago. On a certain level, having done a Jason Mraz concert last year, I think Jason must have listened to Dave, a lot. Far from his studio and album performances, Jason rocks the house, live, in a very similar way in terms of emphasis on words and melody.

Onward, folks. As I’ve tweeted and put up on the Facebook page, I’ve been going extreme, 4th day in a row submerged to the neck in 40 degree F water, 10-12 minutes per session. Net result is some significant leaning. Working on a blog. We’re out of here next week for nearly a week. Will report. …Oh, fuck. Just found this. A jewel. Listen to what two guys can accomplish on acoustic, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, Lie in our Graves. I find this simply astounding. Astounding!

    Great song picks today, as always! I have seen DMB in concert every year for the past 12 years that they’ve toured and the Dave&Tim Live @Red Rocks concert album is one of my faves. Got to see Timmy live and solo at a nearby college, right up front. He is an incredible artist.
    Looking forward to your post on results from the 40F degree water self-torture chamber :) Heck, if it helps to lean out, I’ll try it!

      Did you mean early 90’s?

        Yep. I actually woke up this morning realizing that error. I must have been thinking of my Joe Jackson collection.

    I saw Dave and Tim play “Lie In Our Graves” at Madison Square Garden a bunch of years ago and it was exceptional. “Tripping Billies” and “#41” on their Live At Luther College album are two of my favorites.
