Well, I just streamed Dave's Picks vol. 2 and I got far more than "China/rider/W rat", it just kept on coming, and I must say it is EXCELLENT!!!
"Rhiannon" from The Dance
(Got the iPod on shuffle and just groovin' along with what it decides to play)
1978 02 15 Frank Zappa Deutschlandhalle Berlin, Germany
Great new version of a totally epic show from the magnificent Sheik Yerbouti band. too many superlatives ? Hell, no!
Despite the dearth of jams, and despite the WOS vocals that sometimes seem to slice right through my head (I've got a fair amount of higher-frequency hearing loss; you'd think that these sibilant vox would help compensate for my hearing deficiencies, but no, instead they sometimes edge over into white noise territory for me-- a little unpleasant), I'm very much enjoying this one.
Currently listening to The Grateful Dead Hour on WFPK FM on internet radio. Wang Dang Doodle (all night long)
First intermission of game 4 between Devils and Flyers.
A win for Marty's 40th b-day would be sweet. Go Devils!!
Never listened to this show...I'm in for a treat if the entire show is as good as this Scarlet opener!!..wow
Since I've yet to recieve my Dave's Picks Vol. 2, Been jammin to:
1. Fillmore West, Mar. 1, 1969.
2. Currently in first set of Europe 72, Frankfurt, April 26, 1972, Chinatown Shuffle.
First He's Gone since the last ones at Winterland. An historic show. Definitely worth the download and release worthy in my opinion.
A great version of the Eleven 4-4-69 :-) :-) :-)
