I have to admit it. I

I have to admit it. I really liked Blow Away. From the first time I heard it played at Oxford I thought it was a good tune. Good show, but not as great as the night before.

Blown Away

Always love Blow Away. Probably the best Blow Away ever was at JFK Stadium in Philly, 7/7/89. Went on and on.

Igloo '89

This whole Pittsburgh scene was total chaos. Wasn't long after this that they stopped letting us camp on site. The village was huge here, penetrating into the surrounding neighborhoods (the infamous Hill District). Deadheads owned the city, way more people showed up than "The Igloo" could accommodate. Redneck cops, actually taunting us like some high school bully, rainy weather and an ignorant Sophie Masloff referring to us as "Dead Enders" couldn't break our spirits. Solid pair of shows, but then again, it's my favorite band playing my favorite songs...

yea i agree

stayed at a friend's apartment that weekend after a six hour drive. sunday morning news was too negative and i felt like it was the beginning of the end. loved the show though and the lot was great, especially on saturday.

nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile

Really great run would make

Really great run would make a nice vault release. Check out the GSET and the Stella blue is magic.

"Under Glass"

B.Block Band,

I must in all honestly say that holding Your own in any such situation,shows ones unyielding stand for what He/she believe in or perhaps just something to do to break the stalemate that in which We often find ourselves by hook or by crook, dig? Please just remember My Brothers and Sisters that there are very many shorties out here that look up to what We're doing now as well as what has transpired in the past, so PLEASE let Us lead bye example and how about We just try and "LOVE ONE ANOTHER RIGHT NOW"... I love you all ButchBlock . P.S. Make a meal for someone today :) PEACE
