Overview

Rip This Joint assembles two discs of live performances by many of the best-known jam bands of the early 2000s, along with several old-school groups with a similar psychedelic blues-rock style. Some of the old-school performances include an epic nine-minute version of "Slow Ride" by Foghat, Humble Pie's "30 Days in the Hole," Mountain's "Mississippi Queen," and Canned Heat's "Goin' Up the Country." The real highlights, though, come courtesy of new-school jam bands like the Disco Biscuits ("Home Again"), moe. ("Plane Crash"), String Cheese Incident ("San Jose"), and Galactic ("Villified"). All that's really missing here are appearances by Bob Marley, the Grateful Dead, and Phish. Still, this is a solid collection of marijuana-smoking music that should appeal to the hippie crowd often affiliated with High Times, the long-running magazine sponsoring this collection. It's also worth noting again that these are all live performances and not studio versions -- a good thing if you're looking for rarities, a bad thing if you're looking for well-known versions.
