  1. I hope to drive back to Ohio on Monday. Springfield Park is a beautiful setting.
  2. https://www.jambase.com/article/dark-star-orchestra-issues-statement-passing-tour-manager-matt-reynolds article in "JamBase", Dark Star Orchestra Issues Statement About Passing Of Tour Manager Matt Reynolds
  3. I watched the second set tonight and then phoned my older brother. Cary told me a bit of personal history which helps explain why I like the Grateful Dead music. He told me that when I was three years old he threw my little bear into the Mississippi River (we lived on the banks across the river from Davenport) and I just cried as it floated away downstream. "Well I taught that weepin' willow how to cry, cry, cryTaught the clouds how to cover up a clear blue skyTears I cried for that woman gonna flood you, big riverI'm gonna sit right here until I die" Peace and Love, Doc
  4. There's a post on facebook from Herdy that says "RIP Matt Reynolds... I'm at a loss for words.. mind blown" not any other information other than Rob Barraco responed. Peace and Love with sad hearts, Doc
  5. From Fairport Convention and Steeleye Span we can still hear the Old Folk songs of the British Isles. This music traveled to our eastern Appalachian Mountains and became Bluegrass. The fiddles and jug bands were heard and played out west in San Francisco Bay…from there developed the jam bands which we dance to today.
  6. Magic....
  7. and if you really want the story of "The Lovin' Spoonful" listen to John Sebastian tell the story himself. You know thir first seven songs all charted in the top ten at the same time the Beatles were taking all the number one spots. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuuroKGsWYo
  8. Hot Tuna's "Rock Me Baby" made me want to hit the road home to the wife.
  9. daydream with me....
  10. John Sebastian came out of the folk music scene in Greenwich Village…he actually lived there as a child. He was good friends of David Crosby, Graham Nash, Joni, Mamma Cass and that crowd out west. He was invited to be a second S in CSN but decided to stay solo at that time. John might be best known for his songs with “The Lovin’ Spoonful” …many light, fun, loving songs that had pop success. The first time I heard John live was Saturday afternoon at Woodstock where he filled in some time with a short set. Many years later I got his autograph on the bill of my baseball cap. I’ll ask John to play a few of his songs for you.
  11. "Wooden Ships". So very beautiful and fitting this morn
