Faves for June 7, 2019:
NEIL YOUNG & STRAY GATORS
A live album smack dab in the middle of Neil Young’s peak writing streak? Sign this kid up. I’ll give my money every single time Neil Young puts something out, especially a live album with ‘Out On The Weekend’ on it.
AOXOMOXOA (50TH ANNIVERSARY)
I don’t care what anyone says, and understand the irony in saying this – but the Grateful Dead are punk rock. This is the album that could have made them globe trotting rock stars, but instead they made a record so bananas people thought it was pressed incorrectly. It’s their peak experimental period and they delivered a masterpiece.
