[quote]You mean this? [/quote] Yes (see what I did there?) but the original '74 performance was what I was referring to. I only vaguely remember the album but I do recall that the narration was annoying. ...

[quote]I mean, they were the original jam bands[/quote] True enough. I like improvisation so you'd think I'd like jazz. I do love Bela Fleck & the Flecktones if you classify that as jazz. The classics like Davis & Coltrane are great. But a lot of what I hear these days just sounds like random notes...

I've tried like hell over the years to get into jazz but the implants never fully took. There's some jazz that I really like but most of it I don't understand. And if I don't understand something, it's hard for me to be interested in it....

[quote]Whats the best album to start with?[/quote] Good question but I'm probably not the best person to ask. I'm really not all that big of a fan of the Strawbs. They're sort of a blend of English folk music and prog rock. Probably the best albums are Witchwood, Ghosts, Hero & Heroine and Grave Ne...

re: Ryder Cup Thread!!! EUR-10 USA-6 - MountainTiger
I don't think the players would agree to that either and maybe it puts too much power in the captain's hands. Is our failure in the Ryder Cup over the last couple of decades a failure of the system or is it just that the Euros are better than we are. I think to a large extent it's the latter. We...

re: Ryder Cup Thread!!! EUR-10 USA-6 - MountainTiger
I can see the benefit of that but I don't think the players would ever agree to it. They wouldn't want to play their way onto the list and then still have to sweat out a captain's pick. ...

[quote]they should take 7 autos and 5 captain picks. the auto qualifiers should be more heavily weighted on end of the year performance (from Players to Fedex playoffs)[/quote] I Kige all that.

re: Best online deals for Golf balls - MountainTiger
It's hard to find a really killer deal on balls unless you're willing to buy practice balls or refurbs. A guy at a local store told me that their markup on balls is already about as low as it can go. He said you'll never find a huge sale on name brand balls like 40% off. The best I've found is buy 3...
