Re: Byrds, Sweetheart of the Rodeo is worth a shot. It's very country but still a fine record.
Shout-out to those Sebadoh records... III would be my fav.
I'm also a big fan of Dylan's self-titled and the Crosby. On the former, love Man of Constant Sorrow and Baby Let Me Follow You Down. The Crosby is a bit of a mess, but in a pleasant way. That's a favorite of mine to throw on and relax to.
Glad you like Gladiators... maybe Pug's not diggin it but it's one of my top 10 roots albums. Groovy, passionate, simultaneously ugly/pretty vocals... and a glorious Wailers cover that just might surpass the original.
How's the Dean Ween? Did that just come out?
