    [email protected], just saw that John Prine is sick...

    Just a couple of my favorite Prine songs:
    Growing up near St Louis we saw Peabody coal cars sitting on the Illinois side of the river anytime you went downtown.


    Covered by Bonnie Raitt, Carly Simon, John Denver and many others, the Tedeschi Trucks live version is a standout IMHO:

    The sound of my laptop fan whirring away at 10000rpm with a hint of kids screaming in the background whilst I work from home

    I grew up listening to Jackson Browne hits on the radio, but since I was a kid I never paid much attention. Then about 20 years ago I saw Jackson on Austin City limits and I was blown away. His songwriting is on another level.

    I'm also a huge fan of Isbell's. Vampires is the perfect love song IMO, it's vulnerable without being sapping. I saw Jason and his band play a few years ago. His wife Amanda Shire is the band's fiddle player. Jason talked about how he wrote Cover Me Up for Amanda at the beginning of their relationship and he wrote Vampires for her after they were married.

    I first started watching “Transatlantic Sessions” because James Taylor featured on them. But the whole series was great.

    Man, I had no idea these guys were still around. I don't think I've listened to them since 1983! New music from 2020.

    I was fortunate enough to see Sabbath on the Mob Rules tour back in the day. What a show!

    Your link sent me down a Sabbath rabbit hole on youtube until I ended up on Sabbath Bloody Sabbath. Still one of my favorite Sabbath albums.

    It's too bad about John, I hope he's able to pull through. Here's just one of the many terrific sons he's given us.

    Jealous! I never got to see Sabbath at all, and I never got to see Dio.

    How do you like "Born Again"? It's one of my favorite Sabbath albums, although the mix is not good. I found a boot of the 'unmixed' version, with some of the songs incomplete, and the sound is clearer.

    Good news - there was a report from his family that he's now in stable condition.

    I saw sabbath twice at hellfest festival, 2 amazing shows (of course they were a little bit older than when you saw them :D)

    I really liked Born Again when it was released, but I don't think it's held up as well as some of the other albums.

    I'm glad to hear John's condition is improving!

    Quite the supporting cast as well. Bruce Hornsby on accordion, Bryan Adams, Jackson Brown and Kim Wilson singing backup
