Two posts on the World Wide Web that might be worth your time:

1) Terry Riley's In C for free from Amazon.

2) The NYT running a piece on the Grateful Dead. Don't miss the photos, the vote for the best show ever, or the discussion on the vote, in which I felt compelled to add a comment.

I have some Otis Redding lined up for the morning. Goodnight.

Good morning!

I thought everyone agreed the best Dead show was Chateau D'Herouville 6/21/71?

I read about that In C offer, but it seems amazon has pulled it? The Dead pics are a hoot.

Aha... If anyone would like In C, I can post it here. I think it is about 75 mb.

So far as I can gather, "In C" is still there as a 'free' download; but as a reviewer pointed out, there is an almighty catch where you are compelled to submit credit card details to either iTunes or Amazon in advance although no payment will be pending.

I had Terry's "In C" as a VBR rip at less than 128 kbps. The fidelity was shocking. Great piece of electronic pioneering.

Oh yeah, they probably require people to live in the US as well... Maybe I will post In C here this week. WTF.
