A whole lot of rainbows

Two birthdays to mark today, one for Rosanne Cash and thanks to Don in Nakusp, who requested one of his fave tunes by birthday boy Bob Dylan (oh and also Queen Victoria's birthday too).
Also, an obscure tune from the Addrisi Brothers and have you seen the list of tunes entered into the National Library of Congress? Everything from Edison to Prince... and I've chosen a couple of instrumentals from the list by Sol Ho'opi'i and his Novelty Five, and also Booker T. And the MG's.
Interestingly, one of the entries is a live recording of the Grateful Dead from May 8, 1977. And guess what? You can listen to the whole show in streaming mp3 (yes, it runs about 3 hours).
If that isn't enough for you, and you've got a lot of time on your hands, check out the National Jukebox: Historial recordings from the National Library of Congress in streaming audio.
