Santana and Jerry Garcia - Fire On The Mountain

Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson - Pancho and Lefty by Townes Van Zandt

Soundz: More recommendations from the music maven...
While it's true that there's lots of rubbish on the radio nowadays ('twas ever thus though, right?)'s some proof that a few new luminaries are holding forth and producing music that deserves a place next to the greats of previous with aching passion, melodic beauty, yearning and genuine angst, blood, thunder and thuds:

Arcade Fire - No Cars Go

The Arcade Fire - Rebellion (Lies)

David Bowie & The Arcade Fire - Wake Up

"Win Butler...and his large band of unarty art-rockers rock so hard and so beautiful they can propel anyone who listens past the end of the record. They thud rather than thunder. But what a loud and joyous thud it is."
Arcade Fire, "Neon Bible" Grade: A+
Robert Christgau, Consumer Guide
Buy "Neon Bible" by Arcade Fire now at

The Killers - Mr. Brightside

The Killers - When You Were Young
