I think if ya dig Phish you'll appreciate the good old Grateful Dead, like between 1969's Live Dead and 1977's Terrapin Station they did some cool stuff, except maybe Mars Hotel... all the live reocrds get repetitive after a while [lots of concerts with 'The Other One' which is a good song, but come on how many versions do you need?] Start with 'Europe '72' or the collection 'What A Long Strange Trip It's Been' [disc 2 is a KILLER!]
Porcupine Tree is pretty out there British psychedlic; check into perhaps Ozric Tenticles or Liquid Sound Company or Holy River Family Band or Spacious Mind.
Badmotorfinger! GREAT RECORD! Get "Down on thhe Upside" also and "Superuknown" [you can skip 'Black Hole Sun']. Now get the 2CD British import "Best of Black Sabbath" which has most of the first five albums and enough of "Sabbotage" to be great. For Seattle, see "Mother Love Bone" [the 1991 compilation], Pearl Jam "10" and the Jimi Hendrix Experience "Experience Hedrix" or "Are You Experienced?" [hey, Jimi was from Seattle!]
There's a good 2 CD Petty and the Heartbreakers collection out there [the 6 CD box is overblown and could have been brought down to 4 CDs I think]. Tom Petty leads to Neil Young. "Harvest" and "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" and "Rust Never Sleeps" are essentail [remasters coming so maybe hold off]. Maybe Springsteen's late 70s, "Darkness on the Edge of Town", "The River" and "Nebraska", which also ties into Dylan. Dylan's "Blood on the Tracks."
Other stuff: raid everyone's collections and listen to it ALL and you'll find your own way. This is one time when the journey is what's important.
: Ok, I used to be really into buying music. THen I got a burner and all that stopped. I then spent all my extra money on my dvd collection. Now that I dont download much, i started to buy cds again. I went sorta nutso and just bought cds of bands I wasn't sure I liked, like Phish and porcupine tree who my friend told me was good. So in two days I bought...
: Phish (barnhouse)
: porcupine tree (in absethin or something like that)
: soundgarden (badmotorfinger)
: tom petty (full moon fever)
: essental carlos santan
: the music
: what are your thoughts on these albums and bands?
: what are some great bands i need to check out that i've most likely never heard of?
: I like anything except country. I don't like about 95 percent of rap and i dont' like most metal/rap bands. WHat should I buy?
: by the way, those "essntal" cds are great. they are cheap and far, far, better than the average greatest hits cd. I have a far better appreciation of Santana now. I also have Dylan's "essental" cd, which made me a fan of his. Good introduction to great bands
