Black Mountain Roll Call

Recommended Posts

I’ve been off the DSO grid for too long.  I’d love to jump back in with a respectable run but Blk Mtn will just have to do.  

 

Hoping for the usual suspects and to get to meet some new forum folks!  Who’s In?

Boy would I love to get back down that way. Beautiful country down there. Have the days off, will just have to see if I can get my oldest tucked away at school, and see if the funds are left to make the trip. More than likely will be out til the October run thru this way tho

Yet another usual suspect...completing the Jubilee, Red Rocks, Black MTN trifecta before any actual 2018 touring which commences end of Sept.

I’m sure I’ll contribute to the inn keeper chastising us.

True story. Bear Mountain. .. in 2 weeks. 

F26E4B25-86A9-4C83-ABEB-91F21628BCBF.jpeg

Ol' Slew-Foot

Lyrics: Hausey, Manney
Music: Hausey, Manney

Performed a few times by the Grateful Dead in 1969, with Bob Weir singing vocals (and Jerry Garcia playing pedal steel guitar on at least some performances).

High on the mountain, tell me what do you see?
Bear tracks, bear tracks, looking back at me
You'd better get your rifle before it's too late
The bear's got a little pig and its headed through the gate

Chorus
He's big around the middle, he's broad across the rump
Running ninety miles an hour, taking thirty feet a jump
Never been caught, Lord, he's never been treed
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

I saved up my money and I bought me some bees
They started making honey way up in the trees
I chopped down the tree but my honey's all gone
Ol' Slew Foot's done and made himself at home

[chorus]

Winter's coming on and it's forty below
River's frozen over now so where can he go
We chase him up the gully, run him in the well
Shoot him in the bottom just to listen to him yell

[chorus]
Some folks say he looks a lot like me

Man as the date grows closer it’s looking like I may not be able to stop myself from doing the trip. Debating taking my youngest out of school a day to make the trip. Have to move my oldest into dorms on Thursday, but if I do that leaves me free for the weekend. What’s a 6 hour ride through the beautiful smokies for 2 sweet nights with DSO? Was looking 60-40 against, Now more like 70-30 in favor of travel.

If you pass through Asheville on way to Blk Mtn, on corner opposite the Peel is Bartaco. We loved it in Boulder and this one is equally as amazing!!! The food will have you licking your fingers clean.  Recommend the sirloin, duck and tuna tacos- tuna poke - and plantains are yummmmm- meee! Fast service

 

. FYI - Wicked Weed has been bought by Budweiser....  still good. I guess they are competing with Sierra Nevada.

Beer is like small tech companies.  You hope to get bought by the billion dollar companies and cash out even though your payday will be in the 7 figure range, not the 10 figure range.

BarTaco is indeed it!  Don’t pass on the fresh Guacamole - It’s L-E-G-I-T ❤️

All this talk got me to look at a map. That area is my children’s maternal grandfather’s old stomping grounds, Spruce Pine. His grandmothers grandfather was Daniel Boone. True story. I know, I know, none of this has anything to do with Grateful Dead music. Wait a minute!, ....upon the Blue Ridge mountain, there I’ll take my stand....

Well, after considerable deliberation, it’s going to have to be a no. You did have me going for a little while, though. I’m using up the majority of my opportunity, wiggle room in my work schedule, and fun tickets to do Atlantic City, south Jersey, My old summer stomping grounds. It’s even looking like Dewey Beach will just be one night, at best. Drive down to the show, turn around and make the drive home. Of course, now that I know better, black mountain might happen next year. I’m kinda burnt out on Dewey, and really can’t believe the band isn’t either. Yea, I said it. That’s why I’m doing things differently this year. As for next year, maybe I’ll spend a little time on the mountain.

      Has DSO ever played this song? I would love to hear it live
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.

      A few years ago I had been in seriously deep dark depression.  I was essentially a walking dead.   The various chemistry the several doctors gave me did nothing. Then one day this song came on the radio…I had not heard it since my hippy days many years ago when we would sing it around camp fires, festivals and occasional church meeting.   Hearing this song broke me out of my depression illness.  I came alive again. Peace and Love, Doc
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie

      Arlo was in Atlanta about a week ago. It was a very good show with his daughter, Sarah, and son Abe in the band. I've been fortunate to hear Arlo many times over the years and frequently play his CDs in the car.  The last couple years his shows often start with "The Motorcycle Song" as a video cartoon played on a big screen before the band comes out for the last chorus.

      TR, very cool you posted. I'm a big Arlo fan. Saw him about 91 or 92 play at Queen's College in Charlotte. It was a school theater holding about 500 or so people. He came out in tattered blue jeans, holey t-shirt, and barefooted. Just came to the front of the stage and sat down on the edge with his feet dangling. I don't even remember him using a microphone. He played and told stories for a couple of hours, including the motorcycle song. What a great memory that is for me. Thanks for taking me b
