    Hello everyone:

    Thought I'd start a new thread on recent CD purchases. I've been getting into some new music lately, and thought I'd see if there are others out there that have the same taste. Additionally, you list your CD purchases as well. :):)

    Just the other day I bought the following:

    Porcupine Tree - Deadwing
    Miles Davis - Bitches Brew
    Gentle Giant - Octopus
    Genesis - Foxtrot
    Yes - The Yes Album
    Stanley Clark - Stanley Clark
    King Crimson - Eyes Wide Open (concert DVD)
    Lex Live (Concert DVD)

    The only two bands that I've listened to is Porcupine Tree, and Yes. The others are completely new, but I've turned into a jazz and progressive music nut. I thought these selections would be a good bet. However, the only CD i have listened to as of yet is PTs Deadwing. I have a good music fulfilled weekend. :)

    Rocket From the Crypt- Scream Dracula Scream
    Big Black- Atomizer, Songs About F******
    Pere Ubu- Datapanik in the year Zero
    Drive Like Jehu- Eponymous

    Decided to check out some of this indie rock stuff, since I do enjoy the Pixies, and they're the proto-indie band. Unfortunately, while the Pixies do rock, I just don't get the rest of this indie rock thing. Oh well, not a total waste, I suppose (close to it, though).

    Went on a little cd spree, the other day and picked up:
    Clutch - Robot Hive/Exodus
    Corrosion of Conformity - In the Arms of God
    Throwdown - Vendetta
    Black Label Society - Sonic Brew
    Hermano - Dare I Say
    Five Horse Johnson - Last Men on Earth
    Unida - Coping With the Urban Coyote

    So far the first 4 are my favorite purchases so far and Hermano is growing on me fast. I have a burned copy of the Unida disc so it's just to support the band and Five Horse Johnson I heard on SR radio and loved the track so it was more of an impulse buy

    Just a bit of a Ron fan, are ya? :) How are his solo/leader works? I've only heard him with the Miles Quintet, which, while amazing, just makes me want to listen to him more.

    Scottie -- how's Sketches of Spain working for ya? Definitely not traditional Miles fare, but an incredible album nonetheless.

    Recent purchases...
    Keith Jarret with Gary Peacock and Jack Dejohnette - Up For It: Live in Juan-Les-Pins
    the Dave Holland Quintet - Not for Nothing
    The Miles Davis Quintet 1965-1968
    Nat King Cole - Where Did Everyone Go? (vinyl)
    Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Symphonies Nos.32, 35 >Haffner< and 36>Linz<, recorded by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, lead by Karl Bohm (vinyl)

    Looking forward to picking up some Trane, Cannonball Adderly, Duke (with Mingus and Roach -- Money Jungle,) and one of the Ron Carter/Jim Hall duo discs.
