Except they got like, what, one album? At least with the Dead you can listen all your life and not hear everything. And if you have someone infatuous around they'll tell you what the audience was doing during the show. And how much coke Jerry had before based on how much he's bouncing during Franklin's Tower.

Edit: Don't get me wrong, David is a master, and that one album is perfect campfire music.

My favourite occasion of this is when a bunch of people brought their guitars along and played various songs, although "Wild Horses" by the Rolling Stones is the most memorable song played on that particular occasion.

I like to hear people playing instruments around the campfire.

When I'm out on long routes the music I most often listen to at the belays is Wu-Tang Clan and Gang Starr.

Some here are at least 30years younger than myself and the list is damned close to my own, from the 60's and 70's.

A lot of great new music out there, but it's not quite the same as the stuff from back then. Also it's not always as easy to find, as now we have a fuck load of bullshit to sort through.

For me at least, I won't buy a record unless I can listen to the entire thing. Same for downloading digital stuff for my phone/iPod. I don't listen to just one song at a time. Back in the day you had entire albums that were like works of art (Quadrophenia, The Wall, Sgt Peppers, Highway 61, etc). And it's not just rock. Biggie, Nas, A Tribe Called Quest - those guys knew how to make a RECORD. The rappers today just want to make videos and singles - maybe because my generation's attention span is so short compared to your generation.

Nowadays, with the exception of a few great artists, it feels as if they are making one song at a time instead of one album at a time. I hate that.

You listened to Volbeat? They're good rock-a-billy metal.

I dunno, some good stuff here, some way classic tracks.

At the campground I usually listen to the sound of my own stupidity. Stars! Fuck! Stars! Look at 'em! Ah man, we're going to climb such COOOOOLLLL shit tomorrow! YEAH!

Or play my guitar.

My boy is usually in charge of music on the way to the crag.

silence sounds pretty nice when you're bombarded by noise for 99% of the rest of your life

Check out Kendrick Lamar. He jsut dropped a new album last week that is a great play, all the way through. It is called good kid, m.A.A.d city. Also check out his mixtape (which is free to download with a simple search) #Section.80 - you won't be disappointed

After you get done climbing be sure to head up to the summit for sunset. Its only a 10 minute walk from the main wall. Don't forget your headlamp.

Nobody mentioned Woody Guthrie or Ramblin' Jack Elliott. Nothing better around the campfire than folk, CERTAIN gospel, and Dust Bowl Era songs. Oh... and they are super simple to play on the Guitar. Pete Seeger helped put together a killer songbook called "rise up singing", for those who like this type of music, check it out.

Agreed. I am a total record junkie, but when I go out climbing/camping, I want to hear the sound of the wind through the pine trees, not some a$$holes shitty music. When someone has music at the crag, its all I can do to not go smash their iPod with a rock.

For the most part, I agree with you there. However, this:

is simply not true. Go check out Damu the Fudgemunk and listen to a few tracks off of a couple different albums here:

www.redefinitionrecords.com/collections/cds/products/damu-th>>>

or here:

www.amazon.com/How-It-Should-Sound-Volume/dp/B003H3993Q/ref=>>>

And what about Atmosphere? You know Slug et al. put together full length goodness. Or go check out these folks:
- Project Move
- Moe Pope and Headnodic
- Y Society
- Mr. Lif
- Kno
- MF Doom
- Raashan Ahmad

...and what about other genres? If you have never seen a dude play a hammond organ where he is playing the bass line with one hand on the upper key set, playing rhythm and soloing with the right hand on the lower key set, and all the while working the wah pedal with his feet, then you need to check out the Black Diamond Heavies:





Or how about the Dirtbombs, The Oblivians, Mr. Airplane Man....the list goes on. Good full length albums are out there, you just gotta find them.
