Wow, I thought of posting this before I even saw you posted a Jimi Hendrix song! When you said "real talent", that is what came to my mind! I like this one:

"Mountains seem to answer an increasing imaginative need in the West. More and more people are discovering a desire for them, and a powerful solace in them. At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction - so easy to lapse into - that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us."
― Robert Macfarlane

I was late to the game, only got to see Jerry play at Richfield 1990, 1991, Buckeye Lake 1992, Buffalo 1993, Atlanta and Vermont 1994. And anyone who thinks going on Phish tour was equivalent only got sloppy seconds, sorry but you were born too late, the magic died when Jerry did...

^ I don't know. I think anyone would get more enjoyment out of watching trey in the 90s than jerry in the 90s. now jerry in the 70s might be a different story...

Apologies if this has already been posted but I've watched/listened to it several times already today. So good!

Some early 1990's Britpop/fuzzrock (technically they're from Scotland) from the Jesus and Mary Chain:

I like the 3rd track better, despite its lack of "here we are now, entertain us" visual value. Was invited to see them play in Toronto last weekend but opted out and am told afterwards it was a meh, if mediocre show...
