    Best advice on the topic. Thanks for the reminder.

    The Anthem

    Wow! Just started listening to your recording -- which is fantastic. They absolutely capture and convey the 1973 sound, the beauty and tempo and freshness and love and everything. I was there, and it takes me right back. Thank you, DSO, and thank you, Hardpan, for sharing it.

    So, Rob, does that history of Low Spark -- never played by GD or JGB etc during their lifespan, only afterwards by Phil -- qualify it for a DSO show? (Maybe I need a brush-up on the "rules.")

    Wellmont Theater Question ??

    If you don't want to have to stand to see, I would recommend snatching up the front row loge seats -- which I see are still available on left side. (Though I see they're "verified resale" tix, but still cheaper than premium). Loge is in fact the very first rows of the balcony. There's an aisle behind and behind that the "balcony" seats begin. I can't speak to the seating on the floor, but I suspect you might have people standing in front of you. Go loge for great view and sound. Great venue! I've got tix for both shows (front row loge 12/30, front row balcony 12/31).

    The Anthem

    Thanks for the recording. Can't wait to listen. I was there at RFK in '73, along with just about everyone I knew back then. Yes, it was unbelievably hot and humid. Just the start of a sizzling hot summer that continued with Watkins Glen (with Allmans and The Band) and 2 nights at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City (with The Band.) DSO keeps it all alive -- so grateful for them.

    Current Shows/ Movies on Netflix etc

    Just saw and highly recommend "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs", a wild six-story cosmic western film by the Coen brothers on Netflix. Hard to describe but I loved Peter Travers in Rolling Stone who called it Blazing Saddles as if directed by Ingmar Bergman. Dark hilarious brilliant.

    Lights on the current tour

    totally agree the lights are really obnoxious. blazing bright spots periodically drilling into your eyes, esp if you're sitting in balcony. My wife left after first set at Northampton, where we were in the front row. It's like you're getting an eye exam with your pupils dilated. Adds nothing to the concert but detracts mightily. Totally pointless. I actually found the light guy downstairs. Claimed he'd been doing it for years, knew what he was doing. I tried to explain. He didn't seem to get it at all. I'd rather have no light show than this. New Haven, again in balcony front row, nearly as bad. How about bathing the stage with different colors, more suffused, not laser-blasting the audience? DSO's music is better than ever -- it deserves better by far.
