Sing the Delta I must confess that I've lost track of whatever message Randall Lard is attempting to send us in this thread. I'm afraid that if I go back and piece it together it'll turn out to be a prophecy of the apocalypse. Or a recipe for cheesecake. Or not.
Hapsash and the coloured coat with the human host and the heavy metal kids. Why I didn't buy it in 1967 is a mystery to me !!
It's spacy and a thrill to listen to, if you know what you're listening to. Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Hope it's happy, healthy and safe for everybody -- from the Macy's parade to packing Turkey sandwiches on Monday morning! Ain't that America?

or maybe an apocalyptic cheesecake, gratefaldean. that would be most agreeable.wise words from the sweet toothsayer. Nostradamousse, if you will? i rather like the cut of your jibber-jabber.
"Electric Music For The Mind And The Body" -Country Joe and the Fish.Another case of a band most famous for one of it's worst songs(?). I find "Feel Like I''m Fixin' to Die", an annoying, unlistenable song. But there is some really wonderful music on this album.... Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone.
Grateful Dead Live Winterland 71 Thank you RSD

I've had more fun discovering this band this year than any other recent discovery. I have enjoyed out "music" by Derek Bailey, Fred Frith, and Henry Kaiser for almost ten years, but had resisted the pull of prog and Canterbury. Big mistake. HC and its peer groups were great, committed and uncompromising artists. Jump through the window!

At the moment I'm listening to the jam out of Playing In The Band. I picked this up on sale in a record store for $15. It's KQED's production and is done pretty well. There are some really good shots of the band as a family up on that stage. There are the two drummers in the back, the trio of guitarists, Donna between Jerry & Bob and Keith on his Yamaha keyboards to the right. Everybody looks so dang young. Bobby with glasses. Keith always looks so freakin' into his own world. This show is very California mellow. You sit back and scratch your head going "Man, I sure remember the band a lot more rockin' than that..." But, that was the way it was in the West in general and California in particular. The floor isn't overcrowded with tightly packed people, the whole scene is very mellow, like eating a giant Quaalude. Anyhow, I'm sure glad I picked it up. This is my first listen to this show.
all that shines is not gold? Gotta listen to a fave on its anni - sure would like for Charlie to finish this one off. The meat of the 2nd set was on jam of the week a while back. Nice.

In face of the harshest darkness there is light. It is like watching something beautiful appear out of the most mournful space-jam the dead ever did. Sometimes it was The Wheel, Sometimes Gimme Some Lovin, Sometimes Truckin' or Uncle John's Band. You never knew. But out of the confused gyration of meandering space there was something to be joyful with. This year's vortex seems to be grinding non-stop, yet still a beautiful tune emerges as the days start to become longer. Celebrate life and light and let the darkness fade on it's own. Thrive this season! Everyone!
Kingswood Music Theatre, Maple Ontario: Listening to the recording one is not struck by any superlatives, yet there is s total above-average quality of playing and smoothness here that cannot be denied. The BIODTL>Dupree's>LL Rain> Might As Well really shows some sustain to end the first set... Scarlet>Fire does not slouch to opens the 2nd. But it is of course the New Orleans; Big Boss man>Aiko-Aiko encore trio that steals the show, followed by Wavy's remarks about these being the good ole' days at the end is what marks this as a watershed moment. My favorite for all of '84 (And applause for those polite Canadians)

Have Yourselves a Merry Prankster Kinda Christmas- and Rock On! With fruitcake-flavored lovingkindness and... ample good cheer...a toast to Peace, Love and Joy with every good wish to ALL in the New Year, xo!
http://www.ustream.tv/channel/eight2theuniverse Got this from a friend, ahhh a miracle indeed as it is hopefully connected to the Furthur Show in SF. It's in between sets, finger's crossed it's a good stream. The FURTHUR poster is awesome, great job it's powerfully symbolic but with grand grateful dead custom adherence, xo! Wish I were in SF....ahh but alas I am. Love you all, xo
I Know You Rider It's working, amen.
Listening to 9/24/1993 Boston. Flew up from Nashville with three friends, where we met up with more friends and stayed at my sister's house for the weekend section of the Garden run. Fri 9/24, Sat 9/25 and Sun 9/26. I'm building up the energy preparing for the spectacular "Standing on the Moon" on Sunday. Sitting rear of stage at the old Boston Garden had great sound. Our mail order gave us one night on the floor and two side/back stage on Phil side. From the back, the stage was open and we great view (and sound like I said) of Billy and Mickey during show but especially during Drums when the vast array of percussion instruments were put to use. Really fun weekend. Sunday night was insane in so many ways. Those of us who were there in my circle of friends recently had an email chain reminiscing the details of that night. I just love how the Grateful Dead's music is so wonderfully preserved. Listening to shows I went to literally take me right back to the venue and the friends and extended Dead family I was with at the time. Sensory overload, I can see it, hear it and even smell, taste and feel it. He's Gone from 9/24 that is queued up right now is very spirited. Later today, surely I'll be on the archive dialing up past New Year's Eve shows; and/or see what XM23 has to offer.
Holy Jesu! Care four a spot of tea? Boston tea, that is. The boys are so cool this night. Chimes, maracas, gongs Can you believe this stuff?! By the way I'm listening to 12/30. I'm going to NY and Jimi for NYE.May all your hopes and dreams come true. Paz.
