Question re: legion of mary

I came across this in the reviews section while listening at archive.org

i saw they have a 2 disc set here at the store but i was wondering if this particular recording he refers to is anywhere for a listen? I think i need to explore that alternate universe the poster speaks of for a while - thanks :)

~Subject: Let It Rock

I really dig 'Let It Rock', and this is reputed to be the only version ever played by the Grateful Dead. If you want to get your socks knocked off, dig around for recordings of Jerry and Merle Saunders' band, Legion of Mary. Listen to them do this song with brass. I would suggest 1974-11-15 Worcester Polytech. The Marx Medows recording is also stellar, but doesn't cover this song. Great sound! I got it from Furthur.net. The Legion of Mary stuff is incredibly fantastic, jazzy and rocking at the same time, I would say it is some of Jerry's most inspired guitar work and really truly wonderful arrangements of interesting songs.

I'm not reviewing this recording, so much as sending out a 'heads up' for those deadheads who might not have discovered Legion of Mary yet, especially Jerry fans, find some and listen, for me it was like discovering a direction the Dead might have gone in an alternate universe that I only wish I lived in. KRISSY~

A Ranked Order of States the Dead Played

I figure soemone probably has this answered. What would the top five states be in order if they were ranked according to the number of times the Dead played shows their? I'm from PA and was thinking it might be top five or even top three, coming in third behind California and New York. All have a great weekend. Cheers, Zachary

"Time is a stripper, doing it just for you."

What do these lyrics mean? If time only teases you. Then, what in the heck does THAT mean?

can't speak to the matter of Jerry's Clarks

But at one point he was definitely wearing some Rockports because I had some just like 'em. This was way early '80s though.

Blues for Allah

I am aware that "Blues for Allah" was a tribute to the murdered Saudi King Faisal (band friend and Deadhead). About 15 years ago now, I saw a film about the Egypt shows and I swear there was something in it about an Egyptian shaykh who was another friend of the band and Deadhead. Maybe I dreamed this; but my recollection is that this shaykh (who may have been connected with a sufi order) helped to arrange the Egypt shows. Does anybody know anything about any of this?

Funny enough

Cosmicbadger, back to this topic after a break, the more organized one is, the less time shitty duties take altogether-leaving more time to do and think about important things. Have learned this lesson from working in a stressful job, from home. Have had to learn how to balance a demanding job where I am responsible for multiple things, child-care, household duties, and fun. Used to be very overwhelming, BUT by doing things that can't be avoided right away, and setting up blocks of time to attend to certain areas, then being ready to throw over those blocks of time on a whim is the only way can manage. Sounds conservative on the surface perhaps, BUT in reality allows alot more mental flexibility than the dread of having too many yukky things hanging over your head does. Allows my mind to be totally free in my free time that I build in.

Damn! Don't make much more sense when I DON'T have a fever, so will stop now.
