Levon Helm Band

4/26/08, Merlefest

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.

Damn.

Epistrophy

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.

Dr. John,

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!

oh, do please stop being so annoying gratefaldean!!! you're a troublemaker you are!! ha ha ha!!!
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.

Can you delete a post?

My prior one double-posted, so this is the edit to make it look just a little less annoying...

Paul Simon

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...
