Not quite as long a playlist as usual this week, chiefly because Number Nine here – The Grateful Dead live at “Winterland 1973” – is a box set of nine CDs, and we played the first three, comprising the entire set from November 9, straight through yesterday. November 10 and 11 to come in the next couple of days, if my colleagues will let me get away with it, then there’s a 3CD set from around the time of “Terrapin Station” to have a go at, too.
In other news, still no sign of the complete White Denim and Jarvis Cocker albums, though the new one from Tortoise has turned up. Also, I’ve just opened a fantastic-looking package from Honest Jon’s which includes the Trembling Bells debut, something which I’ve been looking forward to for a few months. Will report back soon, but here’s a quote on the press release from Will Oldham to whet your appetites.
“Jesus fucking shit! These jamz claw so hard at the tatties below methinks the Lord misnamed them, having intended to say trembling BALLS.”
