The Pop Group
Palo Alto, Stanford U. 10/10/82 Had to listen on its 30th! (Miller Aud) A Sunday. I can imagine it was awesome to be there - all those exotic trees with the dappled light, balmy temp, and Jerry lettin' 'em rip! Too much! Agreed, best show of '82.
Baltimore's own Jacob Panic's brand-spanking-new album, "Pop-Grass," which is available exclusively through Bandcamp.com (http://jacobpanic.bandcamp.com). If you dig modern pop songs played by a bluegrass band, check this album out; it's a steal at $10. And Jacob can pick him some wicked banjo!
Live in New York City (6/6/11)
I saw Simon about 6 months later on this tour -- setlist was the same as the NYC concert, though the full show from this tour includes a couple of additional covers, notably a show-highlight of a "for George" rendition of "Here Comes the Sun," unfortunately missing from this release.
Still pretty damn good after all these years.
Rooster Rag. Again. Truly an amazing disc! Anything Robert Hunter touches these days turns to gold - but then we've always known that, haven't we?
the second set of 10/06/77, Activity Center- ASU, Tempe - all cylinders, companeros!
As primers I listened to Miles/Rollins "Dig" from 10/06/51 & Rollins plays Bird from '56, followed by two takes of "I Love You Sweetheart of All My Dreams" courtesy Thelonious from 10/06/64.
