Honesty I get the appeal of the guitar virtuoso shit but imo its just a dude playing for himself. Cant write music and cant connect with people. Talented nonetheless from a technical stand point but not an artistic one
In Order of More like to less like
Derek and The Dominos
The Allman Brothers
Fleetwood Mac (some but not all)
The Derek Trucks Band
Medeski Martin and Wood

In top 5, best live recordings 1970-2000
youre dad sounds like he was the shit.
This thread needs tripcodes so that OP might tell which ones be raciss and which ones be musicologisses.
Also look for what used to be called "old-timey music" (where bluegrass and country came from), most of that is solid. Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen. Kinky Friedman and the Texas Jew-Boys. Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks (before he joined AA).
Gotta give it Lesh on this Album too. Box of Rain will always be a favorite.
You know Lesh studied with Luciano Berio in UCB? Who else has straddled the divide so well? That brings Jerry Garcia to mind for our OP: dude, check out Old and in the Way. God might be dead, but at least he lives on in stereo hi-fi. Look for anything Garcia has done, anything, seriously. He out-Dylans Dylan.
Das rait, massa. I do be one fucked-up honkey. But at leas ah can spell betta dan yoos.

posting some of my uncles music. poor guy was invited to the grammy's every year for 20 years and just stoped going because he realized he was never going to win.
this is him and his band performing with alan jackson.
There are several Cripple Creeks in America, and many theories as to which is the one that crops up in American (and American-styled) folk music, but I personally think the most convincing arguments regard Cripple Creek Colorado entering into the folk imagination due to it's status as a hotspot of activity during the goldrush of the 1850's.
He asked a surprisingly good question. Cripple Creek is a sockdollager example of local popular music, and he proved that with the recommendations that he elicited. Maybe he just bit off more than he can chew.
A quintessential Murican word.
"This wer a reg'ler sockdollager!" said Jim Chowder, when narrating the circumstances to us; for on this unexpected enquiry after the mate coming so suddenly after the men had treated him in so ignominious a fashion, they were "knocked all aback!"
you guys are complete faggots.
When I get off of this mountain
You know where I want to go
Straight down the Mississippi River
To the Gulf of Mexico
To Lake George, Louisiana
Little Bessie, girl that I once knew
And she told me just to come on by
If there's anything she could do
Up on Cripple Creek she sends me
If I spring a leak she mends me
I don't have to speak she defends me
A drunkard's dream if I ever did see one
Good luck had just stung me
To the race track I did go
She bet on one horse to win
And I bet on another to show
Odds were in my favor
I had him five to one
When that nag came around the track
Sure enough we had won
music has always been about the same thing faggots. so funny you think we give a shit about you at all.
some more racist music
Yeah, we know the lyrics. The point is, the song draws from a much older tradition in folk music.
Maybe, but there was a massive increase in number of variations on the the song and other related songs in the late 1800's and very early 1900's. That might be in part due to more of interest in writing the songs down during this period, but there was definitely a spike in the song's popularity after the mid-1800's.
Everything The Band did from 1968-70 is fucking gold. And a bunch of what they did after too.

Yes, this has been the difficulty in studying popular music, or popular anything, that it doesn't get written down until much later. Parlor music was being engraved and printed during Andrew Jackson's administration ("Some folks say a nigger won't steal/but I found one in my cornfield") but "Cripple Creek" needs to be tracked more from anecdotes and inference. We need to look at things like locations, instrumentation, scansion, and chordal structure. 4chan will nuke our thread before we might bring this to a close.
Rule one....No Pooftahs
I would rather address OP on this topic.
Music in North America has several sources. None (that I can think of) is indigenous, but that's the nature of conquest and colonization. The British Isles can be found in parts of Canada and most of the eastern US. German music runs from Pennsylvania down through Texas, Chihuahua, and Sinaloa. Slave-coast Africa is found in southern US and the Caribbean. French influences are in parts of Canada, Louisiana, and Haiti. It's all more complex than 4chan can handle.
OP wanted to know about Cripple Creek.
The Scots, Irish, and English are most relevant with regards to Cripple Creek, since the earliest versions are bluegrass tunes, which is pretty much Celtic music via Appalachia.
Hard to say without the tripcodes to know who says what and why. I can only speak my own truth.
Indigenous music in the New World generally means pentatonic 4/4 dances. ("The young do not dance as we used to" says a Kumiyaay song, "they do not stomp the earth with as much force as we once did.") OP's Cripple Creek came from primarily Celtic sources, predominantly dodecaphonic scales in minor modes.
look I feel you but what the fuck? I had a mexican blind my dad with a 2x4. I dont blame the all the mexicans even though it was a mexican who did it. and this is my dad. you hate people that had nothing to do with it. If I used your logic I would hate all Mexicans.
> couldn't perform live
> literally the most prolific live band in the history of American music
I mean it's totally valid to dislike the Grateful Dead, they're not for everyone. But to say they couldn't perform live is flat out nigger-tier logic. I'm genuinely worried you're going to join BLM.
thats just nonsense. they were better live on a lot of their stuff. but as Jerry said the dead are like licorice, not everyone likes licorice but people who do REALLY like licorice.
its not for everyone, but could you name for me another band that inspired thousands of people to drop their lives and follow them around the country for decades? people loved the band so much that when the band was no more, 100 more dead-related projects were spawned in its place. very rarely do musicians span generations the way they do
and that just one thing I could say. I could go on about it, but to say theyre hated is simply not true. there was an almost cult-like following around them. ive met people who legitimately worship Jerry like a messiah
groupies, but not hundreds of thousands of people. and yeah some shows he was smacked out, but that was mostly later in their career, and the shows that they fucking killed it greatly outweigh the shows where they were a little off
Probably my favorite version of HtH: https://archive.org/details/gd71-04-28.sbd.murphy.2248.sbeok.shnf/gd71-04-28d4t01.shn
Starts around 0:40. Phil's bass line at 2:12 is so bubbly. Bobby's solo at 3:20 shows he was a solid, thoughtful soloist. The climax at 8:38 is a moment I've rewound countless times. Grand stuff.
you dont know shit man. the music was amazing when he was on it but sucked horribly most the time. Its all about consistency . its the same reason limp mizkit died. they sounded good on record but were shitbags in real life. not an acurqate comparison because I would never hate anything greatful dead did.
Gene Clark-era Byrds & anything else he (or Gram Parsons, Skip Spence* or Clarence White) touched
Enjoy anon! The following night was the famous last show they played at the Fillmore East, and it a legendary show, but the night before was pretty great, too, producing this gem.
A special version of St. Stephen from 1976. https://archive.org/details/gd76-06-09.matrix.chappell.29323.sbeok.flac16/gd76-06-09d2t02.flac They hadn't played the song in 5 years, so heading the audience go apeshit produces a nice thrill, and the song is radically reworked from it's late 60s roots to great effect. The break at 4:25 catapults us in to the upper atmosphere. By the time they start making their way back in to the song around 10:30 I had completely forgotten whiat song they were playing. The band is playing at peak power here with a majesty I don't often hear. Worth sticking around through Eyes, as that version is amazing too. Phil is on fire throughout. The break from 9:20-9:59 is just incredible. Great show.
As it does, anon, as it does...
