    Also I'm trying to be nice.
    It's a well-executed song. There's no arguing genre.

        • I am old.

          I have heard of just 4 of these people, and heard the music of only 1.

            Rather nice thought, though, isn't it: that it moves on with or without us?

              Well, I assumed... :-)

              BTW, this is the primary reason I know I am not a Boomer. That cohort seemed to freeze all music as what was popular in the 60s and 70s. I am shocked at how narrow-minded the vast majority of 60+s are about music.

                I'm one of those. One of the things I like about this thread is that I do not recognize so many of the artists. Reminds me that "settling in" may be comfortable, but it is just one more way to become irrelevant or, worse, harmful dead weight.

                • I have heard about the same as number as Kep, with only Gary Clark Jr. getting any regular listening time. I used to listen to Phish but it's been awhile.

                  Got my Spotify summary of the year:

                  -7,391 total songs played (although to be fair a good % of those were snippets only while trying out new stuff)
                  -2,305 total artists played
                  -35,095 total minutes of playing time
                  -Daily peak was 570 minutes played on October 5th which I have no idea why - it's in the middle of the week
                  -Top podcast: *** With Marc Maron

                    Seen several of those guys in the last year, not sure if those numbers are rankings but I’d put Trucks real close to the top. No tricks, no guitar tech bring a different guitar every song, no pedal board, just him and a Gibson. I’d go to see him and Tedeschi any time I could.

                    I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.

                      • Must have been impossible to perform this song because I couldn't find any versions of it: Ca plane pour moi.

                        • A band that has one song I love and nothing else I even like: Traffic, The Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys.

                          I don't understand where this song came from, it is not like anything else they ever wrote.

                              Yeah the recording company used the same backing track for both songs which subsequently were released around the same time. Genius!

                              Also Mr. Fantasy (yes different album) is one of my all-time favorites.
