    Santana's "Zebop". I wore that record out! Just a great album from start to finish. This record is from 1981, almost 2 decades before "Supernatural". Just Santana and his band, and they kill it.

    Interesting.

    I wouldn't say I wore it out, but I like that one, too.

    A bunch of good ones there.  I also thought Hendrix's Crash Landing was potent stuff.  And that first Rainbow album was a classic.  Killer guitarwork by Ritchie.

    Re: Albums that you couldn't stop playing

    I have this tape of the Grateful Dead from Manor Downs in Austin, TX on 7/31/1982 - the eve of Garcia's 40th birthday.  What a great, great show.  I've been listening to it nearly 30 years.  My friend recorded from right up front - got the sound coming off the stage instead of the PA system - great quality recording.

    I was there - warm summer night in Texas, outdoor venue (horse track), BBQ on one end and the Dead on the other.  We got a hold of low grade acid so we took a lot of it.  That was one of the best nights ever.  We drove down from OKC - three of us in a 2 seater (Opel GT) with one in the luggage area behind the seats.  We were doing bong hits on the way down.  Some buddies from college were following them around and spent the night at my house in Okc.  I followed them down to Austin with a couple of High School friends.

    After the show, everyone was hanging out in this huge open field that was acting as the parking area.  No cops telling people to move on or anything.  We took a few of the bumper stickers my college buds had made and walked around trying sell them or trade them, mostly trade them.  Traded them for beers, hits off a pipe, other bumper stickers.  Everyone was so friendly and happy that night.  This was a few years before the scene with the Dead got out of control.  People good still make stuff and sell it at shows - great t-shirts and drawings.

    I remember it like it was yesterday.

    "The Music Never Stopped" was awesome, the "It's all over now" was phenomenal.  In the second set, the Uncle Johns Band was crazy.  At the end of the song, the jam veered into what seemed like a dead end, and then suddenly Garcia broke into the opening licks of Truckin and the rest of the band followed.  It got a bit dicey when Garcia stopped playing to light a cigarette, but they got it back together and just flew.

    There's mosquitoes on the river,

    it's been hot for 7 weeks now,

    did you hear what I just heard

    Kick A.S.S. Metheny, Ponty (Enigmatic Ocean is probably his best thanks to Alan, Daryl Stuermer (who played bass for Genesis for years after this) and several others), Yes, ELP, Floyd Animals, Zappa, all among my favorites. I own pretty much every Pat Metheny record, most of Ponty's, almost all of Yes and ELP, and those few Zappa discs that you mentioned. Zoot Allures and Apostrophe are staples. Most excellent, Greg.

    I must be the baby of the bunch.  This is all before my time...  I envy your music knowledge and experiences, though.
