7/11/12 Cary, NC
Listening to this a couple of weeks after I was there. At the show I was let down a bit by the back end of the second set, felt as if the show kind of petered out. The set started with a 22-minute Playin' followed by In the Midnight Hour >Here Comes Sunshine>Mountains of the Moon>UJB that levitated me right out of the crowd. The No More Do I, Foolish Heart, Days Between, E: Box of Rain that followed seemed to bring me right back down to earth. Fast.
Maybe I was getting tired (it was a looooong day). Maybe it was the Chatty Cathy party girls behind me -- I finally fled during Days, wormed my way out of the pit to the back of the venue, so the mood was pretty much shattered at that point.
Sounds much better now (Days Between, especially). Even if it wasn't the most inspired song combo to close out a show.
Valentine's day '68. It goes everywhere. I wanted to be there but mt stingy parents had a problem with a 2 1/2 yr old hitch hiking from Illinois to Cali to see a band called the Grateful Dead. With the release of RT 2.2, I have since forgiven them. Can't hold a grudge forever!
I'm keeping the pre-party rolling
and loving the neighbors accordingly...ha!
My Grandfather's name was really Otto, lol. (true, lol)
Jerry singing God's grace, so soulful and humble, xo!
Jesus loves you the best, xo! Rock ON!
I am in early pre-party mode here!
Jerry's 70th Birthday Celebrations!
I'm listening to a few I can
bend my cheeks to and sigh
and smile awhile.
The pre-party in ON @ my place!
No sense in stopping, feels good;
Parrrrrrrrrrttttttttttyyyyyy for Jerry in NY!
The recording sucks, but who cares? Garcia is "Crazy Fingers" this night.
Reminded by DaddyDead that I had not watched this for ages. Now enjoying it too while doing a little house cleaning up.
But does anyone know what the big joke is after Wang Dang Doodle? It seems to start with Jerry making some strange gesticulations and soon after they are all very amused by something.
Not just listening but watching.... View from the vault II -RFK 06/14/91 ...If you have any holes in your DVD collection, like I did, "All The Years Combined" DVD set is the way to go. ... hoping for HD.... but who knows
Peace to the People....
The Future is here... WE are it ... WE are on our own.
Doubted you for a second, CB :-)

Patterson Hood -- Murdering Oscar and Other Love Songs
I'm seeing Hood and the Downtown Rumblers (comprised of 2-3 fellow Drive-By Truckers bandmates and a cello player?) tonight in Winston-Salem. I'm guessing that we'll be hearing him roadtest a good chunk of his upcoming new solo album. See you at the rock show!
