    By the way, I just picked up the new Los Lobos CD, which is superb as expected. Their take on "West LA Fadeway" is terrific!
    Yeah, the new Los Lobos cd is really good. I am finding I like it more and more with each listen.

      Saw Melvin Seals and JGB last night. It was at the Hard Rock Cafe, which is a terrible venue, but got spots right up front and were dancing with a couple of very mellow guys which made it very enjoyable. Melvin was having a LARGE time and his smile was infectious. I continue to be impressed by guitarist Stu Allen. At one point he broke a string, tuned back up while Melvin was featured in a jam, and came back in and played a pretty amazing solo on 5 strings.

        Furthur in Chicago.

        Pulled the trigger on Friday night ( Nov. 12th ). I may go Saturday as well if tickets are available at cost. Hope to see some of you there.

          I saw FURTHUR at Outside Lands last week..

          One set. Really long and they played all the Epic songs. Only one short song (BEW), the rest were all the long tunes. Let it Grow, Birdsong, Dark Star, the Other One etc... Great show, had some great moments and a few flubs (Bob in Terrapin namely). But that is what GD music is all about,flying by the seat of your pants. Sometimes it is Chicken Cordon Blu, other times chicken shit.

          Easily the best recreation of Grateful Dead music though. Joe Russo is a freaking MONSTER on drums. JK channels Jerry perfectly, even singing with the same inflections that Garcia used...Jeff Chimenti is solid, playing Bren'ts old B3..And Phil Lesh is still the old bombardier that he always has been...But Bob is the guy. He is in great shape it seems and is a lean mean chord making machine...he is really stepping up. he played that pink guitar and is still the king of chordal weirdness. He really drives the band and is turned way up, unlike the other "What's left of the Grateful Dead" projects....

              Funny. I am usually so good at that kind of stuff too...(Thought about looking it up but thought "nah"). But that week was a blur, Phish at the Greek, Telluride and then Outside lands so forgive me. Not to mention that my traveling buddy is (was, now) not a Dead head so we played a lot of GD on our journey...

              Cassady instead of Birdsong and Loser instead of BEW. But no Dark Star? Wow, i guess I was rocking pretty good that night.

              They also exceeded the curfew by a few minutes....

              Death Don't Have no Mercy was incredible. Bob really sings the shit out of that one. And the terrapin suite was truly incredible. I love that, and hope they never shelve the drumming part of that again.

                YES INDEED! Further @ Out'Lands was a killer show & the masterpiece set o' th Fest. Something not yet touched on here: Song #4, Time, (by Pink Floyd) was absolutely NAILED by the band. Complete w/ the opening alarm clock/bells & wailing vocals by the backup singers and a grinning Phil doing Roger Waters justice w/ the sparse bass bombs in the beginning. Absolutely excellent! ;-)

                  My buddy, Kelly, who is a youngster, was totally blown away by Time. At first he was "How is this going to work" and was almost afraid to hear it. But then he was OH MY GOD they nailed that. Then he went on all night about how Jerry (Now JK) and Glimour were such similar players and that it was natural for them to do that song, even though before he heard it, he could not fathom it...

                    I love the early Brent years. The fall 79 tour was killer.
                    Been enjoying this gem from that tour. The 2nd set is unreal ( check out the jam after He's Gone ).

                            Nugget from archive.org

                            Great interview with Jerry circa 1981, check it out.

                            http://www.archive.org/details/jg198...Interview.shnf

                            Notes

                            This is one of the only candid interview tapes of Jerry in circulation. It starts with a journalist named Greg

                            Harrington asking some very intelligent questions about all types of topics and Jerry is very warm and generous during the interview. Later a few heads join the party and the tape keeps rolling. At one point someone sparks a jay and Jerry is inclined to smoke up with his new friends. What ensues is just hilarious as Jerry and company get progressively more stoned. This tape is a rare glimpse into the wonderful mind of Jerry Garcia. After listening to it, you will have a much better understanding of what it must have been like to be a member of the Grateful Dead, what was the process or lack of it for the band and who really is Jerry and what is his trip?

                            This is a wonderful part of my collection. I have seen a copy converted by someone else, but I have taken the time to convert a high bias 3rd GEN cassette to digital.

                            Note: Take special note to track 9 on disk 1. I Hope you enjoy Jerry's opinion on the matter of tapping shows.
