    totally agree , Jim. when I surf past the modern country, it sounds like it all was computer generated. And wow, if you want to call Neil Young whiney, listen to modern country, nearly as bad as gangsta rap and hip hop.

    i remember the anticipation when gaucho came out and the disappointment of playing it.production values seemed to be the focus.but on the bright side the back catalog is still out there.

    Thumbs down RAP is NOT music

    I despise ANYTHING to do with (c)rap music -- just gangster wannabes who should be incarcerated for life.

    Wow, if that is not wrapping everything into a box and putting a label on it.

    Just like all gays dress and act like women. Come on, get out of the 1950s and dive into reality.

    Can we add Led Zep, The Grateful Dead, and later Pink Floyd here. Also ANYTHING by the F*cking Doors

    BTW: Thin Lizzy did do the Cowboy Song which Material Issue later covered and it is a cool song.

    Yeah, I've seen them 3 times over the years - in '71 when they were a hot new band (them and Bonnie Rait were the warm up acts for Paul Butterfield's Better Days). Once about a year later (touring for the Dixie Chicken album I think) still good, but their direction was changing, and once a few years later after Lowell George was dead - waste of time - never again. I've heard some bootlegs and albums since then - but not interested.

    You ought to give some of their earlier albums a listen - the ones that still had Lowell George, (though the first one or two were a little rough...). That's some of my favorite music! I even selectively like some of their later stuff, though concert-wise, the originals were far better than their current examples...

    Elton John is generally OKAY, but LIVE doing "Burn down the Mission / Get Back" was really hideous. A waste of recording medium.
