    Great show in Norwalk last night; Kemp any chance your people have a setlist? I remember around 2/3 but would love to have a complete list.

    Great cover of Spiral Starecase's "More Today Than Yesterday" was a highlight for me; others included "Crazy Like a Fox" and "Magnet," two of my lesser-known NRBQ faves.

    Looking for it. I think most attendees are still recuperating. Terry and the boys have been going pretty deep into the Q catalog and also throwing out some surprising covers. John Perrin's drums are really starting to get a Q feel now. He's been in the band for 5 years and Casey on bass just celebrated his tenth. Scott Ligon on guitar has been with the band almost as long as Al was!

    I've probably posted this before, but this article about a teenage Terry Adams and his introduction to the music of Thelonious Monk, his immediate obsession with that music and the relationship that eventually developed between the jazz great and the young keyboardist reveals much about what a unique band NRBQ is. Gotta absorb this stuff while it lasts.

    The boys will be heading out again soon. I'll make the Leesburg, VA show at the Tallyho Theater, a new venue for me. Wish I could get to some more of these gigs, but time is a little tight these days. Also, a great sounding new CD is available of a live show from 1983 called Park Lake 83. This is the second, and perhaps best known, NRBQ lineup featuring Big Al Anderson, Tom Arodolino, Joey Spampinato and Terry with Donn and The Whole Wheat Horns heavily in tow. Omnivore Discs does a great job on sound and this is probably as good a capture of the loose/tight full throttle Q from that era available yet, a real example of what a wild night was back then. Check out nrbq.com or Amazon for copies. Be nice to run into a Threadhead in Leesburg. Also try the CD in the "while wasted" mode and report back on that thread.

    Thanks for the review on that Park Lake CD. I’ve been eyeing it on their website for a couple months; I don’t but many CDs these days but I just made an exception for that one.

    Planning to catch the Norwalk, CT show.

    Saw them last night. They are absolutely unstoppable-- Played 2 1/2 hours at City Winery on a weeknight, which just isn't done. Many songs I hadn't heard in forever-- "Girl Scout Cookies," "When Things Was Cheap," "Boozoo, That's Who" and more. This lineup can and will play any song from any era of the Q, and play it great.
    Blaze Foley used to play a fun "Girl Scout Cookies". Not sure I believe he wrote it when he was 9, though. Sure wish NRBQ would come down this way (south) more often.

    We’ll be at Harlow’s (Minus Five opening!). Did a sloppy version of Ain’t No Free last night to ramp up the excitement.

    Probably just enough not to have to pay them.
