its repost party saturday night! i am going to put this bluntly. if you dont own grant lee buffalo’s mighty joe moon, you may as well be dead to me. you want the flavor of the month, look else where. im sure pretty much amazing has you covered – he’s a nice guy, i must admit, however. you want something that is going impact your soul for longer than a month, then i got what you need. dont believe little ol me? check the internets, the amazons, the all music guide, etc and all signs will point back to what i am preaching and that is the fact that mighty joe moon is a classic record. if somehow you find a negative review of said record, they, my friend, dont know shit about music. you can buy it on amazon for as little as 47 cents – are you kidding me? buy it! or if you dont feel like going through the trouble, ill send you a copy.

here they are at the troubadour on 11.16.96. its an excellent recording, i must contend.

1. the shining hour
2. drag
3. the oxen
4. the hook
5. its the life
6. armchair
7. arousing thunder
8. bethlehem steel
9. mockingbirds
10. honey dont think
11. lone star song
12. stars and stripes
13. jupiter and teardrop
14. fuzzy
15. lady godiva and me
16. for the turnstiles
17. two and two
18. you just have to be crazy (647)

    the entire glb catalogue is grand. copperopolis is the only real let down, although there are some classics on there.

      holy springsteen, dan bejar! i, admittedly, have not dug too much of bejar’s work since the first destroyer record, which is like one of the best bowie records bowie never released, and is still one of my favorites to this day. i love the thought of his work, but in reality we dont alway connect.
