This was the last time that I saw Levon play, am wishing that I'd been much more determined in pursuing my desire to see a Ramble at the barn. Levon was in good voice, the band was cooking.
Writing this, I realize that a few hours earlier that day was also the last time I saw Doc Watson play.
I've had improvised variations on this infectious riff running in my head all day, and can't help wondering why Furthur isn't toying with this as a transition jam. I'd be shocked to find Jeff doesn't already know it well.
can you just imagine '73/'74 era Dead jamming with these masters? surely the most beautiful concert that never was.
we can always dream of course....

the night tripper - Gris-gris
I'd perused the New Arrivals section at one of the local record stores, Euclid Records, and had moved on to this and that. When I came back to the NA section Gris-gris had just been filed under Blues next to the Louis Jordan compilation I was going to pick up. Well, Louis had to wait - this was the first time I'd seen Gis-go so I had to go for it fo' sho!

i can see how that Paul Simon song could keep you awake; it has a rhythm like a train on the tracks which sounds mighty fine to my ears. man, those early simon & garfunkel records brings ol' jonapi to tears. absolutely beautiful music.
these last few nights it's been The Orb's Little Fluffy Clouds keeping myself awake; impossible to extract that bassline from the brain, infusing one's senses causing a flood of lucid dreaming like bobbing in warm cushioning water.
ahhh, the sound of early '90's bliss; rural idyll, countryside bathed in sweet summer sunlight with a beautiful righteous doobie in the hand and my wife by my side.
was that really 21 years ago? my how time flies....
have wonderful weekends everyone.
My prior one double-posted, so this is the edit to make it look just a little less annoying...
The Obvious Child
Has been on full-bore repeat loop in my head all through a sleepless night. I keep hearing the same verse:
Well I'm accustomed to a smooth ride
Or maybe I'm a dog who's lost its bite
I don't expected to be treated like a fool no more
I DON'T EXPECT TO SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT
So was this swirling all 'round my brain all night BECAUSE I couldn't sleep, or was it the REASON I couldn't sleep? Cause-and-effect, or self-fulfilling prophecy?
Next up, Zevon's "I'll Sleep When I'm Dead," no doubt...and then the Beatles' "I'm So Tired." And so on...
