I have been watching a very good new documentary film called "Dawn of the Dead: The Grateful Dead & The Rise of the San Francisco Underground"
Fascinating material with some great footage of primal Dead. Don't miss it! It is already available in the UK, but release in the US seems to be in May
Early Ellington 4/07/27 just one tune
Milt Jackson "Lewis, Heath, Clarke & Donaldson" 4/07/52
Dizzy Gillespie "Birk's Works" 4/07/57
Jimmy Smith "Cool Blues" 4/07/58
Miles Davis "Jack Johnson" 4/07/70 ("Yesternow")
Grateful Dead Empire Pool Wembley 4/08/72 (2nd set - I cheated)
I had "my" show of the handful I saw, but one such as the above renders any and all I may have seen inconsequential, I'm afraid.
B-side to Wishful Sinful
Fantastic Doors from the Soft Parade era.
Old and In The Way... right after Elephant Mountain. It's got nothing to do with old though!
Subliminally I do have to wonder... with "Grandpa" Banana's new album release. And I am too now I guess (a grandpa.) Oh well. Age is an abstraction!
dopesmoker by sleep. an hour and 3 minute jam full of sabbath like riffs and lyrics that depict a group of stoners searching for the holy land.
One of the nicest covers I've ever heard
Who Wants Yesterday's Papers?
Nils in the E Street Band and Nels (Cline) in Wilco, knock-out guitarists whose marquee bands don't feature their talents nearly enough. Maybe it's the first name?
Don't Let Go
So where's that new Jerry release? Soon maybe? Please?
Wherever you're headed. And thanks for all the fish!
