well, gonzo

out here on the West Coast, Bill and his style were pretty hard-wired into the scene, so I'm probably just used to it more. Hell, at BAM our softball team played BGP's, and I am here to tell you Bill did not tolerate losing... Not that we were much of a threat to the bluecoat team.

Bill had a pretty strong sense of doing things right, however that presented itself in the moment, and that encompassed everything from breakfast at dawn to this particular rant. He expected you to do right, he expected himself to do right. And he certainly delivered the goods better than anyone else before or since.

I forget at what point I first heard that tape, but it sure struck me at the time that it said something that needed to be said a lot more often. With Bill's customary lack of diplomacy, but eh.

Yeah Marye...

...that was the one by Grahm. I agreed with what he was sayig but the NYC-in-your-face way he was ranting from the mike really turned me off to an other-wise wholly honored part of my collection.

I understand if you like that part -- maybe that tone and style works for you. I know I sometimes do it inadvertently then always regret it afterwards.

Seemed to always work for Uncle Bo-Bo though!

Absolutely Fantastic

Thanks to lamagonzo for his excellent suggestion. By a strange coincidence I ordered and received it about a week and a half ago. I'm definitely not disappointed. Have listened to it several times already and keep hearing new things with each listen. I would appreciate any other suggestions you might have, even if they're only half as good as this one.

Thank You again lamagonzo

I can't imagine you would be disappointed, except maybe at Grahm's rant at the end!

One more question

Thanks. I thought it meant that the song was edited and I wasn't listening to the full thing. I have one more question. On archive.org when I download the mp3 files how do I access it on Windows Media Player? When I try to extract it, there are two copies of all the files and deleting one will delete the other. Is there a way to do this? Thanks again!

The > Symbol

~~What does > mean?

Well what it means is that they transition or jam into the next song and it all blends into one. There are alot of songs that are played together regularly....for instance Chinacat Sunflower flows into I know you Rider....most deadheads just put China>Rider as a shorthand. So if you get old tapes (lol) or digital music that is documented by deadheads you will get those symbols.

If you do not have the symbol it means there was a definite break in the music.

Example would be this show which can be found on archives:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd89-07-07.aud.wiley.7855.sbeok.shnf

If you look at the first few songs. It is listed like this:
Hell In A Bucket, Iko Iko, Little Red Rooster (separated songs)
then later on:
Scarlet Begonias-> Fire On The Mountain-> Scarlet Begonias (Scarlet>Fire to heads with a little sandwich)

Hope this helps!

Uncle John's Band > Dark Star means that UJB transitions into DS.
