  1. @spiny, here's another one of my favorite JP tunes...hell, they're all my favs.....I had never seen the lyrics but I memorized what I thought I was hearing and figured out the chord progression....played the song on stage for many years before I bought the anthology set (with printed lyrics inside the cd case), and found out it was "The Great Compromise".......I thought it was a song about a guy gettin it stuck in his arse so all those years I'd been singing "The Greek Compromise"
  2. Love this dudes version of the Judds "Grandpa (tell me bout the good old days)" https://fb.watch/94h5Tqf-W0/
  3. @Freud Safe travels my friend! DD
  4. There will never be another Satchmo...he was one of my Papa's favorite!
  5. And, I saw John live for the 1st time at the Boomer theater in Norman, Okla across the street from the OU campus in 1980. This was at a time when I was cultivating vitamin M for other reasons as the Beast hadn't reared his ugly head yet! I ate a LOT of it, got in my vdub bug and drove from far NW Okla City to Norman....good God Gerty, what a ride!! When the concert started, John and his band and crew just walked down the aisles and he stopped repeatedly to shake hands and bs with folks!! At the end of the show all of the crew came out on stage with the band, got in a line with their arms linked and swayed along with the music as JP and company closed with Illegal Smile!! Ya cudn't have wiped the Illegal smile off my face with industrial strength ajax!! Lmao!
  6. One of my fav JP tunes with Bonnie Raitt
  7. @jon019 John Prine is another favorite of mine!! I have his anthology 2 cd set which is a Sunday morning ritual!! So many funny songs and JP was one of the best finger pickers I've ever heard....when it comes to his songs it's all but impossible for me to pick a fav!
  8. Gotta agree with ya @jon019, I've been a BB fan for many,many years.....love "Why I Sing the Blues" Any idea how.old that Stones cut is? I've never heard it before but it's pretty damned cool!! Hell of a job on the steel!
  9. Yer a smart man! Lmao! She has several different cuts on YouTube....although it isn't a genre that I would normally listen to, this one is really good, she has a cool solo in it, she really shows off how good lookin she is....and shit the bed Loretta, does that girl ever have some legs!! Ray Charles is one of my heroes as well....I'm a die hard classic country music fan so really got to know him when he started recording country songs and then he did the album with Willie Nelson whose another idol if mine and I fell in love with his style!! Like Willie, his timing was uniquely his!
  10. I bought some studio time several years ago in Dallas and when I got there this dude was in the booth!! This big ol Texas boy has got some blues chops!!
  11. @Shaun brearleyher name is Candy....she's Dutch and yeah, one of the best sax players I've ever heard....did I mention that she's drop dead gorgeous to boot!
  12. @Shaun brearley...another good one...he really is a homeboy, I lived in Cow Town (Ft Worth) for about 16 years....he had me on this one in the first line with "a half a bag of weed"....lmao!! DD
  13. @Shaun brearley....love the Cody Jinks cut!!! Those guys are almost "hometown boys" to me as I lived in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for over 40 years and it sounded like most of em were from near there!! I am the original "hippie cowboy" and played and sang on stage for many years wearing pointy boots, wrangler jeans, and a stetson with my long hair and beard! Lol! Dallas Denny
  14. If I'm "medicating" my ch I always have Neil's Harvest album ( Harvest is under-rated as a music choice to take a journey on in my opinion)and the brick in the wall cd with the comfortably numb cut....for every day it's old, classic country on willies roadhouse or the eagles and John Prine on the boom box! DD
  15. @KmanTexas Harbor freight has one for around $80 https://www.harborfreight.com/oxygen-regulator-63788.html
  16. @KmanTexas So, I've been using weld ox since 2009....the guys on ch dot com who schooled me had been using it for several years at that time.....I personally know several clusterheads that have been using it for years and I know of no one who's had any issues. Welding requires "pure" O2 for good welds....med ox and weld ox come out of the same faucet.....med ox tanks are vacuumed prior to refilling while they just do a "sniff test" on welding tanks in case there's been an acetylene crossbleed contamination due to a faulty regulator. And yes, they just exchange empties. The biggest hurdle with weld ox is that the cylinders are big and heavy so ease of mobility is a problem but crossfill adapters are readily available on ebay and you can pick up used E and D tanks on ebay and Craigslist fairly reasonable. As to O2 concentrators....they only grab around 95% O2....we see reports of success from a relatively small number of folks....they're of value only to the supplier as another avenue to bilk you and the insurance companies outta more bucks!! Dallas Denny
  17. @KmanTexas Wow!! I do believe ass rape is putting it mildly!! Old Dallasite here by the way....43 years between Cow Town and big D...we escaped the Metromess a little over 10 years ago!! So, I wrapped up a 20 week cycle in early May.....I started with a 1/4 full M sized tank, refilled it twice and still have a little over 1/2 a tankfull.......at $22/refill which is the same price I paid in 2015 evidently their cost hasn't increased due to covid!!! I said screw those idiot medical O2 suppliers many years ago and opted for welding oxygen so granted, I did have an up front investment of $300 for the cylinder and around $75 for a welding oxygen regulator. Now that's here in far south central Oklahoma.....when I was still in big D I was able to lease a large M sized tank for a $150 deposit and $6/mo with refills (actually exchanges) costing me $18 at Seagoville Welding Supply on 175. You just can't let em know you're going to breathe it!! Neither them or my current supplier ever asked me any questions...I walked in, ask for a large tank of weld ox and he wrote it up and took my dollar's.....they're in biz to sell welding gas so they don't care what you're gonna do with it (as long as you don't tell em the truth..lol).....if they should ask, tell em you've got a bunch of heavy scrap metal to cut up and a buddy is loaning you his acetylene rig but he doesn't have an o2 cylinder.....by telling them you're gonna be operating a cutting torch they'll automatically expect that you're gonna need to refill more often. Get rid of them damned money mongers!! Good luck! Dallas Denny
  18. @Jrb3rd Can't offer any advice on these particular demand valves other than 40 lpm should be more than sufficient......I will say however that I know a clusterhead in northern California who snags some really great deals on ebay fairly regularly!! Dallas Denny
  19. @Freud Sorry to see you're goin thru hell Brian!! I know you've tried everything out there so won't offer advice but sending positive thoughts and good vibes brother! DD
  20. @Kimbers I'm going to Reiterate Chf's O2 comment.....he needs to hit it as quick as possible after the first twinge of pain......over the years I've found it works best for me in a standing position.....while the ambu bag is filling exhale forcefully and then do a mini crunch to expell the residual air in the lungs.....then inhale the O2 deeply and hold it while the bags refills.....and repeat until abort. Many of us incorporate either energy drinks or shots that contain taurine and caffeine in conjunction with O2 therspy.....others use hot or cold coffee. Sleep deprivation is a terrible side effect of being in cycle for me.....for nocturnal hits he can try adding melatonin before bedtime and/or sleeping in a recliner helps some folks. DD
  21. @Bejeeber You beat me that time jeebster! Lol!
  22. @Kimbers Very important to do all of the cofactors as they all work together and the K2 is needed to move the calcium from the large amount of D3 to prevent kidney stones.....I know it's a bunch of pills but it works great at controlling clusters.....is he doing the loading dose protocol? The guy that originated the regimen is a longtime member here and can help you adjust the regimen as needed for maximum efficacy! His screen name is xxx and you can message him directly with questions if need be. Next, tell us about hubby's O2 set up......it's often not prescribed as needed for it to be effective....should be administered at 15 lpm minimum via a non rebreather mask. Lastly, no way to know about episodic vs chronic at this stage of the game....we call it "dancin with the Beast"..lmao......chronic is defined now as having no more than 30 pf days in a years time. I know folks that were chronic from the git go and I know some that have gone from episodic to chronic AND vice versa!! The good news is the vast majority of the folks I know are episodic! DD
  23. @Kimbers Welcome to the community and thanks for being an advocate for your hubby!! We love our supporters! While a prednisone taper usually does stop the hits, it's primary use is as a bridging med to allow other Frontline clusterhead meds like verapamil or lithium to build to a therapeutic level in your system....however, it doesn't abort the cycle for most folks so the hits will likely return after the taper unless he's lucky and has a very short cycle. Since he's so new there's no guessing how long his cycle will last and cycles tend to morph over the years anyway for most of us.....mine are pretty consistently around 20 weeks followed by an 18 mo remission. How else are his clusters being treated? Two primary things for ya'll to educate yourselves on and put into place are high flow O2 and the anti inflammatory vitamin D3 regimen......O2 will abort individual hits while the D3 regimen will either decrease the intensity and number of hits or it can completely abort the cycle for many, many folks! You can find files on both in the Clusterbusters Files section. Dallas Denny
