This is about the so called PERRO (Planet Earth Rock And Roll) group.
We all know who were in that band..
Different albums are made linked to that group of Bay Area Musicians.

Graham Nash - Songs For Beginners
David Crosby - If I Could Only Remember My Name
Kantner/Slick - Sunfighter
Jefferson Airplane - Volunteers
Kantner/Slick - Baron von Tollbooth And The Chrome Nun
Paul Kantner - Blows Against The Empire

Fifty year old Airplane freak who's been sitting on the PERRO site listening to the Kantner interview and enjoying it SO MUCH. Four mugs of mexican chocolate coffee and eight cigarettes later and went running for a pipe buried somewhere and started scraping two or three year old resin. HAH!!

Seriously, this site is an alternative treasure trove. Posted somewhere on here how much I'd enjoyed Grace's piano work on BLOWS. Next thing I know I'm listening to Kantner saying the exact same thing.

I had and lost a copy of the PERRO LP (found it as a cutout, imagine that?) and had totally forgotten just how cool the Mountain Song was. Plus the WHOLE concept. It is the earthbound alternative to BLOWS.

Here in CASCADIA I've found myself thinking a bit about this everytime I see the mountains, especially Mt. Shasta. Great site. Thanks again! 8)

"Damn, you're struggling."

Perhaps, but not like you think. After all, this is Oregon. As in all things, it's about finding balance.

don't worry, I am only kidding. I just hope you aren't serious about the three year old resin. :shock:

Glad I could help. I don't know how I got turned on to SUGARMEGs, but I thank God every day! I have never found a better repository (or should I say "goldmine") of what I consider to be THE BEST music... Real psychedelic rock, you know, the kind that CHANGED THE WORLD.

They have a complete listing A-Z of almost everybody ever, THEN there is a whole 'nother list of MOSTLY but not all Grateful Dead and JGB as well as Phish (who kinda bore me) stuff, but that one has tons of other great artists as well.

My problem is that my hard drive is fillin' up FAST. I need to burn some of these shows to CD-Rs, but many (most?) exceed 80 min. in length. How to split a 80+ minute show into separate files in order to burn subsequent CD-Rs, Vol. I-II-III, etc.?

I quite like Phish. I only have "A Picture of Nectar" but it's a great album.
They are extremely uncomfortable with the idea that I am a teenage girl in the body of a 60 year old career criminal who has already died 16 times...

On extended review, I am going....NUTTTTZ. Buffalo Springfield- great recordings- Bluebird, Do I Have to Come Right Out, Down to the Wire (w/ Neil singing), Mr. Soul.

Most of the recordings I've listened to are, well...largely unlistenable, but the Springfield-holy SHIT. Most of the recordings... right-like I've had a chance to really listen yet. Haven't even touched the Airplane. I'm not sure that I'll make it to "J".

If you do miss the "J"'s, you will be HURTIN' fo' SHO'!!!
Some of those JA shows are freakin' UNBELIEVABLE!!!
Check out some of the late 1969/ early 1970 era material. You WILL be blown away.
And on most of the stuff, the audio is sound-board mix quality.
So dig it...

THEN after "JEFFERSONS" comes "JIMI"!!!

"...on a rainy day..."

Listened to The Byrds "Unsurpassed Masters". Really interesting studio stuff. Starts w/ a real clean vocal track to "Hey Mr. Tambourine Man".

Got Crosby's outtakes from "If Only I Could Remember My Name" Good, but recording quality just a tad off.

J.A.-Couldn't stay away. I'm listening to an O.K. 1989 show at Radio City. Kinda jive, actually. HOWEVER, heard some of the shows between late 1967 and early 1969. Blistering "Ballad of You & Me..." followed by "House at Pooneil Corners" AWESOME and totally real. Can't wait to keep digging.

Gotta dig out the Beatles stuff. Stones was a bit disappointing-later stuff. The early stuff-only caught "Little Queenie". Funny and cute. Real little kids still and showed. Quality was understandably bad, but so what? Should be fun.

Shitload of QMS that I can't wait to get to. Same w/ the Band.

Real interested in hearing POCO

Bummed that none of the Fleetwood Mac stuff is from the REALLY good albums like Kiln House or Bare Trees.

I've been listening all night. It's Wolfgangsvault x 10, and that's saying tons. 8) 8) 8)

You get to Oregon I OWE you a great big buzz.
