Enjoyed that immensely! Glad I could make it. I'm off quickly to my outdoor Irish jam, so I'll offer my toast now. Till next time!

i dunno... but i watched blade runner 2049 just yesterday for the first time (and i loved it, by the way.) so many epic, beautifully shot scenes of a future of a wasteland, but still human and moving.

oh what. you asked.


Good choice

A great album and great sync listen. All the best to everyone here. Until next time. (I think I will replay Ashes again) :oops:

Rob Zombie uses lots of James Gang and Joe Walsh in his trilogy about the Firefly family.

Not for the faint-hearted, mind! Even in the cut versions!

Yeah, that's the long and short of it for me too.
There's something perfect about James Gang.
Joe Walsh's singing and guitar playing (and the recorded sound of his voice and guitar) and the rhythm section (and their airy thudding). It's all exactly right. On the nose.
Sometimes it's kinda dumb, but ... rock and roll.

Wish I coulda made this one, but . . . work eh

I listened to Yer Album earlier and now I’m on to Third. Never owned tge live one for some reason though I heard it back in the day. All three have plenty to recommend.
