Variety Is The Spice Of Life

Over the weekend, I had a couple great conversations regarding music. From an old college friend I learned there was a marvelous, all-black punk band, before punk was punk as it were, with the cheery name of Death.

Then, thanks to one of my FB friends acknowledging a recording by Pat Metheny, got into a discussion not only about him, but the great electric bassist Jaco Pastorius.

This led to a mention of the work Pat Metheny and Jaco did with Joni Mitchell (and in the following clip, that's Metheny's long-time keyboard collaborator, Lyle Mays).

Learning to Fly (Live) - Pink Floyd
Demon Queen of Spiders - Bigelf
Analog Kid - Rush
Dream The World Away - Wakeman with Wakeman
Dancing With Eternal Glory - Transatlantic
49 Bye-Byes - Crosby, Stills, and Nash
Get Ready - Temptations
A Time And A Place - Emerson, Lake, and Palmer
It's Alright - Indigo Girls
Neon Knights - Black Sabbath

Yeah. I hope your ears bleed.
