Somebody needs to get Scott a copy of Planet Waves. The version of Forever Young on Bob Dylan at Budokan is awesome too.

I just started the 1985 reboot tapes. I am into Feb 1985 so far. Very enjoyable and informative. 

 

But if I never hear "Lanny Kai" in that voice again, it'll be too soon. It's the sound that makes me punch babies.
