Hunter at My Father's Place, 1978

always one of my favorite tapes, as he's in rare form.

Some of us being a little slow, I just connected the iPad to the boom box, and this version sounds a lot better than the beat-up cassette!

Midnight Moonlight

If you ever feel lonesome
And you're down in San Antone
Beg, steal or borrow two nickels or a dime
To call me on the phone

And I'll meet you at Alamo Mission
We can say our prayers
The Holy Ghost and the Virgin Mother
Will heal us as we kneel there

In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight
In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight

If you ever feel sorrow
For things you might have done
With no hope for tomorrow
In the setting of the sun

And the ocean is howling
Of things that might have been
That last good morning sunrise
Will be the brightest you've ever seen

In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight
In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight

If you ever feel lonesome
And you're down in San Antone
Beg, steal or borrow two nickels or a dime
To call me on the phone

And I'll meet you at Alamo Mission
We can say our prayers
The Holy Ghost and the Virgin Mother
Will heal us as we kneel there

In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight
In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight

If you ever feel sorrow
For things you might have done
With no hope for tomorrow
In the setting of the sun

And the ocean is howling
Of things that might have been
That last good morning sunrise
Will be the brightest you've ever seen

In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight
In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight

In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight
In the moonlight, in the midnight
In the moonlight, midnight moonlight

5/25/72 Lyceum Theatre London, England Love the second set selection, of course, but what a unique sequence!!! I'm half-way through the Star and lovin' IT! No doubt will be slayed (once again) by "Comes A Time".
Cheers,

Grinderman 2

The revenge of Grinderman! Just kidding, these "bad seeds" put together a pretty vicious sonic onslaught that, when I first listened to this album, I didn't particularly case for. But, at that time (and in my defense), I was rather unfamiliar with the work of Nick Cave as a whole. Sometimes you don't "get" a record the first time you listen to it, and this, for me, was one of those records. And now I dig it.

Also, speaking of Nick Cave and those Bad Seeds, has anyone gotten a chance to listen to the new record, "Push Away the Sky"? Pretty good stuff! I got mine on wax, and it comes with a bonus 7" with two exclusive songs, but I haven't gotten a chance to give 'em a listen yet.

Numero 19

5/23/72 Lyceum Theatre London, England First of the final four. Five Pigpen songs. After five days away from the stage they're fired up. Very few tunes with segues - I wonder how long this show was? What a room! Listening as they exact the dynamics in the transition from China Cat to I Know You Rider. The tension is palpable - very serious, yet so sweet. They're just exactly where they want to be. After a trio of short tunes by each of the protagonists, a heart-wrenching Stranger by Pig & Co. kills us. Playin' and five more tunes follow before they pause to refresh. Whew!!!

5/23/63 Dexter Gordon "Our Man In Paris" 50 years and counting.

5/22/77 courtesy Charlie Miller. A nice, nice show. I'm on Franklin's right now. It would sure be nice if the first handful of Dick's Picks were expanded and remastered, no? Go for it Dead.net!

Steel Pulse

Still pounding through my reggae albums and have yet to get tired of the genre. I got lucky about a year or so ago and managed to win two free tickets to see Steel Pulse perform at Rams Head Live! in Baltimore, MD (which happens to be rather close to my house). I first found out about this band a couple years ago when I bought the book about the making of Bob Marley's 'Exodus', which is an excellent book if you're interested abou what was going on in and around Jamaica around the time of the home invasion/shooting of Mr. Marley (which is what caused him to go into exodus in London and gave life to both 'Exodus' and 'Kaya'). The book talked a lot about some of the bands in both Jamaica and England, in particular Steel Pulse and Aswad, though a number of other groups were mentioned.

The only Steel Pulse albums I have are compilations--'Smash Hits', which I highly recommend, and 'Ultimate Collection'--but these guys are hotter than hot if you get a chance to see 'em live. Sadly, these guys seem to be past their heyday of releasing albums, but they do a lot of humanitarian work outside of thier lives as musicians.
