My tastes have not changed per se. I still listen to a lot of 1960s/1970s stuff: jazz fusion, hard rock, guitar rock, prog rock. I keep track of many of those artists' subsequent careers as well.

I am open to recommendations of new music and have been glad to enjoy things like Kruanghbin or the Wood Brothers. I always check out anything related to Wilco or the Replacements.

I'll admit that Warren has kind of dropped off my radar even as I appreciate the TTB more and more. I'll have to do something about that!!

Hard copy cd's, My son and I built a wall shelf 15 years ago and I now have boxes all over the house, not only on the shelf, but in boxes in the guitar room, the attic, and basement. I'm a hoarder. 2k live DVD's (with very few doc's), 19 guitars, 3 mandolins, & a ukulele. I breathe music. My kids are 24 and 25, I'll be downsizing within a couple years, I have no idea what I'm going to do. Most likely a Military Package donation hopefully a Musical Therapy Place. I have over 200 guitar tab books. I think Musical Therapy is the best Therapy.


That's very well done.

Great gift you're providing some organization.

Not really.

Each summer I try and make a new ABB mix. Not sure what it's gonna revolve around this time though.

I am always on the hunt for newer bands that are bringing back that old school classic and hard rock sound.

Rival Sons
Crobot
Great Van Fleet
Clutch
The Sword

Bernie Tormes last 2 releases are very good and I recommend Last In Line, which is Vivian Campbell, Vinny Appice, Phil Soussan and Andrew Freeman. I was kind of skeptical at first . Most of these bands are kind of a dime a dozen, but they bring in. Jake E Lee's New stuff is worth a listen.


Just started to get into Robin Trowers latest , I like what I hear. He has put out some very solid material over the last decade plus, a lot of it sounds a little to over produced for my tastes. Still a good listen though.

Colin Linden and Luther Dickinson did a project together. It's worth checking out.

No not all
I always have my certain rotations which go back to high school in the early 70s

Same with me. Except I was in high school in the 1960's. We'll probably my favorite band in 1967 was Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels. Got to see them. But The Beatles we're big for me as well as the Rolling Stones. Cream and Jimi were major favorites and The Doors and CCR.

When I first heard the ABB, they had a very profound effect on me. The musicians not only were extremely good, the way they played together and their no glitter, working man appearance was captivating. And the music was so spiritual and just reached inside you. Since my first time seeing the ABB, they became my favorite instantly. And it was a complete surprise. Like going to a party with no much expectation and meeting your future wife.

So I'm always looking for something new and enjoy lots of musicians. But about 1/4th of my music listening is the ABB and half of that is the original line up.

Brothers and Sisters was their best selling album. But to me, their best albums by far are Fillmore East and Eat A Peach. Compare any album post Eat A Peach to Eat A Peach. Brothers and Sisters may come close but nothing in the 1990s or Hitting The Note from 2003 are in the same league as Eat A Peach. Eat A Peach is a classic from the opening note to the fade.

So my music tastes haven't really changed. Just expanded.

I don't think my taste has changed, still searching and enjoying what I consider "good music" in a completely subjective, at times elitist way

One thing I've noticed as of late is diving back in to some jazz fusion and "world music" that I previously may not have listened as closely to, I think this may be a direct effect of an ABB void. Rather than listening to a related band, like TTB, Mule, or something new like Marcus, I've found myself listening to some random album from a band like Oregon that I haven't heard in 15 years. Perhaps it's the desire for something fresh to my ears, that isn't just the same old thing. I struggle getting in to music that I find real simple (ex. wave of Irish anthem rock) or without a lot of conviction.

Not really even being a fusion fanatic, I did go through this list after someone sent it over to me; again kept things on "musical edge" for me personally : https://digitaldreamdoor.com/pages/best_fusion_albums.html

Yes, quite a bit more Bluegrass...


Me too. I've become a big fan of Mandolin Orange. Had tickets to their last gig in town but had to miss it due to a family matter. Next time for sure!
