I heard a version of Sugaree last night on GD Radio. It was not the Jerry version, older I think. A different song. Older I believe. Sounded like it was sung by a child or young woman. I really liked it. Does anyone know who it is by. I did not catch the song info as I was in and out of sleep.
Listening to the Asbury Park show the first time I ended up comparing John to Jerry which is how I came up with my negative review. I listened to the show again Sunday and said to myself I'll have an open mind and just accept it for what it is. By doing this I found myself enjoying it and thought John sounded pretty damn good! When Bobby sang " If this ain't the real thing, it's close enough to pretend" I had to smile. I guess if it's good enough for Phil and Bobby it should be good enough for me too. I hope I get the ticket for the Haiti benefit that I ordered. It would mean a lot to me to be able to be there to help the people of Haiti and to be there to help sing "happy birthday" to Phil.
Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart
You just got to poke around
I can wait. From what I've heard so far, the drummers sound good, Jeff has impressed me,very enjoyable. As for John's guitar, I've found myself cringing way too much. I hope the boys can teach him a few things so I don't feel like I'm listening to a amateur copy-cat who needs to find his own musical, oh I don't know, "soul"? I hope by the time they hit the west coast I can say I've heard a vast improvement.
Believe it if you need it, or leave it if you care?
Why aren't you playing a show with Welcome to the Dance in it!? Or New years at least.
Would like to hear their new stuff
You're getting pretty good at this. You sure do make me laugh a lot. Thanks for brightening my morning!
Won't you come out to play!
If there's any way you can get the new Furthur song,Welcome to the Dance, into the rotation that would be nice. I hope there is a chance of a live New year's eve broadcast, or maybe a new years day re'broadcast if live ain't gonna work.
Till we all fall down
It'll do you fine
Nice "Simple Twist" yesterday and t.i.f. this morning. Old and In the Way is real fun to play on guitar. I never learned it til that last post. Now I have a Grisman song in my repitoirre!
Let there be songs, to fill the air
I'm just old & in the way.
The future's here, we are here, we're on our own.
