    Now Listening...

    Cool terrapin project... the stanley Jordan segment starting at 11:00 is really something--playing guitar and piano at same time?!

    Indeed. The term I return to over and over during this ongoing kickass DSO era is "Renaissance "

    Well there were lots of GD cover bands around even when the GD were still touring hard....

    46 Years Ago Today...

    Ah C'mon Tea,,to this day folks in Oregon have a hard time keeping their clothes on when it gets over 90 degrees! (Actually, in the Eugene/Veneta area about 75 degrees does the trick😎). The only Jubilee I've made it to thus far (3 years ago or was it 2?) was such a rewarding experience in so many ways including that they played 8/27/72 on the Sunday night show and holy shit did they do it justice. Not sure if they have played that show before, further back into the archives but I felt lucky to be there as that show has long had a special place in my heart for many reasons. Also worthy of note is that Bobby did a nice nod to this historic show when he played Eugene with D and C earlier this summer and they opened second set with Dark Star>El Paso. I wasn't there but I thought that was a classy maneuver. I recall Phil saying in an interview somewhere along the way that he felt that the '72 Veneta show went down in a way that made it feel like the final acid test...with an extreme looseness that was more prevalent before 1970... Pretty phenomenal that so much of the music and vibe was captured on film.... my kinda history lesson πŸ˜„

    Forecast looks like it will be HOT. Dang I'm seeing 97 for Denver on Sunday. At least we will be on a steep East facing slope by early evening and hopefully cooling off a bit by show time...

    Berkeley Night 2

    That's a very classy choice DSO made (wish I'd thought of that!) Play 'Em back to back with a week and some miles in between,,give the Bay Area some red rocks juju for those who don't make the trek to Colorado, and the band gets in the '78 groove in prep for their big gig in a week...I totally dig it! great way to round out the Cali showsπŸŒ‹
