Stephen , I agree ;"I actually think it's some of the best playing by Pat and Jaco too"

This is wonderful ! I have heard it many times I have a DVD , a CD ; Jaco was really great with this band lineup . ( but then i can't find anything that he played where he was not )

I haven't listened to Joni Mitchell in some time and that set reminded me of the fact that she makes great bedroom music; seriously, you could spend all day naked with a significant other in and out of bed and Joni could be the soundtrack...Tony

Finally watched the Hot Tuna Rock Palace show. Best footage of #1 I've ever seen! The audience was groovin'!

What a tone from Casady. Has anyone had any luck replicating that sound without a Versatone amp?

Hello Rob , That tone is wonderful , I agree 1000%.

I have experimented with a stack of similar speakers and power amps .
ALEMBIC Series II Bass strung with Pyramid Gold strings - Alembic IN-2 -SF-1 Superfilter- Alembic F2B preamp -Yamaha P2200 power amp X 2 - 4 Alembic A15 type cabinets with Gauss 4580's -1 Alembic B12 type cabinet W/ JBL K120's - I Alembic A18 with 18' Gauss.

The above produced "Sweet Thunder " however the slightly overdriven top end was missing that was INDEED PRODUCED FROM THE VERSATONE AMP ! ---- I know someone who had a pristine old one in perfect shape for sale, But those things did not have the build quality that I would expect for what the asking price was . I know someone that has a schematic for those. I think I know what is inside . There would be another way to get their effect if I really wanted my top end overdriven. Bi amp a mono feed and send highs to an amp to over drive the highs a bit and a few small speakers - 12's or 10's. ____ Experiment are fun .

Yesterday, at a restaurant in Key West, I heard a rasta guy with a drum machine and steel drums playing what I eventually realized was "Reflections" by The Supremes, and Stevie Wonder's "Sir Duke". Strange.

Tone Poems by David Grisman and Tony Rice. Learning a few tunes off this incredible work for the new bluegrass project with which I'm involved. Finding it hard to stay on task at practice though because I'm getting so caught up in listening to the beautiful guitar and mandolin work.

That's a great project, as are the other volumes of Tone Poems. Sadly, Tony Rice is really ailing these days. Poor fella looks terribly frail. He's been one of my musical heroes for 30 years on now.

Hot Tuna, full concert, 6/24/11- Wolfgang's Vault. Nice acoustic gig with good audio and video, with interview afterwards. Recorded right at Wolfgang's Vault in San Francisco. This may seem like a foolish question to the more senior members here, but are you connected to that, Wolf? Just curious...

HI Rob , Questions are a positive inclination for the truth ! That is all good brother .
I was once an employee of Mr. Bill Graham (Concert promoter) in the late 1970's to early 1980's . I do not have any affiliation with " Wolfgang's Vault" other then being on their email list .

Meat Puppets 'Lollipop' and 'Sewn Together', I am loving the newer Meat puppets albums; some of their best music, although 'Monsters' has some of my fave solos...anyway, good music to listen to while I do jewelry work; especially stone setting, which can be silly amounts of stress (stones crack or pop out of the setting for no reason, just to send you crawling on the floor to find them...fun!)...Tony

I was at both shows at Alpine in '82 (amazing!), and a few months later saw the sun rise during their show at the Jamaica World Music Fest. If I recall, they played from sometime after 4AM until about 7AM. Looks like I'll be dipping into my archive of 80s Dead shows.

This time of year always makes me think of people who've gone home.

I'd forgotten about this, and happened to think of it the other day. Two legends from Mississippi who made good, and another reminder that great singers and musicians can do justice in situations we might not ordinarily imagine them, and that they do listen to other artists and other things:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAA_LUCb0QE

The affection is obvious. For the 'who played what', read-the-back-jacket types like me:

Don Was, producing
Kenny Aranoff, drums
Willie Weeks, bass
the late Barry Beckett (from Muscle Shoals) on piano
Reggie Young, guitar
. . . and the other cats I'm afraid I don't know.

But then again . . . . . Robert always had a big man-crush on Elvis, and this Honey Drippers track with Beck AND Page-y is absolute, incontrovertible, undeniable truth that 'it don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing', a sadly lacking aspect of groove in this digitized and quantized world. Sample Rates can't Swing !

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vRUnT-TeRg

Can't help myself, it's just way more fun than 'Immigrant Song'. I'm trying to imagine Vikings doing the jitterbug in the land of ice and snow . . . . .

Dave , I am Glad you like it. An aspect of what I like about this incarnation of the JGB is the line up of Musicians ( yes , with a capital M ).Nicky Hopkins piano work is steller in my opinion in this genre, I always liked what he played . Ron Tutt on Drums and John Kahn on Bass paved that grooooooooovy road for Jerry and Nicky to lay their musical reflections down in a very unique way that was the JGB in essennce and roots .

Groovy in the extreme! I once heard an interview in which Jerry said "[Weir's] playing provides the only context in which my playing really makes any sense.", but I've always thought he was sorta OK in this context, too.........

In re: Mr. Hopkins - "Edward The Mad Shirt Grinder". Need I say more??

BTW, I mistyped in my post 1807 above; it should say 8-8-82 (the 22 stuck in my mind because 6-22-85 was the show I took my 6-week-old youngest son to; yeah, he grew up hip & mellow)

Just received Joni Mitchell's 'through yellow Curtains'. Recorded live at the Second fret in Philadelphia between 1966 and 1968 they are probably the earliest decent recordings of Joni before she made it big. Her singing voice is incredible as you'd expect but what makes the package special are her numerous anecdotes. there's a little background tape hiss but it certainly doesn't detract from the performance. If you like Joni, you'll love this recording.

Various recordings of Dan Tyminski on mandolin, from Lonesome River Band days to present.

I've been a closet mandolin player for years, but just got a gig playing mandolin in my Dad's bluegrass band. These guys had played together for years, but their mandolin player was suddenly, and very tragically killed in a logging accident in 2012, and they haven't played much since... anyway, I'm excited about running around playing music with the Ol' Man again, especially with him on bass.

Thank you, that was really nice! I'm gonna have to look for her...I don't listen to that type of music that often, but enjoy when I do; old bandmates were weirded out by my thing for power pop...I wish I could do that music but all my music comes out sludge/groove, crunchy and slightly evil or creepy...don't get me wrong, I love what I make but I just haven't got the wiring to make a love song or a pretty song...oh well...Tony

P.S. sea of bees got me right off track; I was listening to NOMEANSNO '0+2=1' one of my faves...

+1000 on love and respect for Nomeansno---angry, awesome bass stuff from those guys---"Big Dick" is a bass classic.

Double post.

But my guess is that I'll probably be listening to something else soon.

I've posted links to some Cyril Morin tunes before, and here's another one. Probably not everyone's cup of tea; but I think this is stunningly beautiful. The Mind

The instrumentation is sparse; minimum but very effective percussion, and keyboards that paint a soundscape. These support a voice and vocal line that are treated with a carefully contoured reverb. The line itself is well crafted and skillfully sung.

I've listened to it before, but just now listened several times in a row. Stunning.

That video of Rob and John is neat; they're so young! Rob used the same bass for SO long...I saw it soon before he retired it at the shop I used to work at; the pickguard was brass, held on with duct tape as the screw holes were done; filled with dowels that were themselves done repeatedly...the finish on body and neck was falling off in chunks...it looked awesome but it was clearly past the point where you would rely on it on tour; I don't know if he still uses it for recording. Tom Holliston their guitar player lives 8 blocks from me so I can usually tell when they're on tour or not...Tony

Fleetwood Mac - "The Dance" DVD (1997)

Watched the whole thing again... McVie was playing a neck-through Michael Tobias, and a couple Rick Turner basses all night.

I have to say my preference is for Bob's original on his 'another side of Bob Dylan' album - also featuring 'Motorpsycho nightmare' which is one of my favourite songs of all time. I believe I can just about remember all the lyrics despite not having listened to it for a good few years. Might be the subject of my next 'What are you listening to' post although I've just been sent a setlit for a band I'm considering and there's not too many familiar songs on it so I'm going to be woodshedding for the next few days.

Dire Straits - "Brothers in Arms", a classic from my high school years. (Dang, has it *really* been 29 years since this came out?!)

Anyway, I always loved John Illsley's smooth, supporting style of bass playing... uncannily like John McVie's. Listen to the similarities between "Sultans of Swing" and "Go Your Own Way".

Last two days in the truck - Brand X Product - some of the best fretless bass and drum jamming around. My favorite work by Percy Jones and Mike Clark on drums.

And right now - Wayne Krantz (played with Steely Dan) His new Good Piranaha, Bad Piranaha is pretty cool. Plus I'm going to see his trio next month here in Nashville.

And David Pastorious and Local 518. Check them out!

Mike Stern's 'Time In Place'.

I had a bunch of tunes on a cassette tape for over 20 years and never knew what any of the tracks were.I'd labelled it 'Mystery Fusion Stuff' and I was scared to play it in case it got chewed up,and figured I'd never find out what any of the cuts were.Thanks to the Shazam app I've been able to identify most of them after all this time.Along with Frank Gambale's 'Legends' and 'The Tardis',this is a real highlight.

So I paused the rehearsal recording I was listening to so I could hear the Mike Stern song (I still can't get over how he is now to how fat he was with Miles..) anyway, just went back to rehearsal recording as I type this and it's kinda like going from a nice hotel wedding party to getting drunk with the dumpster divers out back scrounging the leftovers...I think I will always be closer to the dumpsters, which is funny as I am a goldsmith by training and work in a pawnshop so I have more gold go through my hands than most people see in a lifetime; damn I LOSE diamonds in my workshop, but tiny ones worth a few bucks each...still...anyway if anyone cares to listen, they'res some Rumsfeld tunes at reverbnation.com/rumsfeld and I don't know if they're the good recordings of the songs or not as I haven't checked in awhile; my drummer does that stuff...Tony.

I'm a big fan of 'Live from Daryl's House'. One of the episodes, he had Booker T. Jones guesting, and Daryl reached back for this gem:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVt3I-HupRE

. . . . Eddie Floyd's 'Never Found a Girl', which Booker T co-wrote and produced the side back in the day when Stax was a powerhouse. Can't argue with him, one of my favorite tunes as well, and rockets me right back into the heyday of Soul music, somewhere I'm very happy.

Daryl's a great 'white soul singer', and without the baggage that usually drags with it, and a great student of his hometown Philly-style and all the rest. I really dug the episodes with Smokey and Shelby Lynne, and Joe Walsh and Billy G turned in good days as well.

Nice video Joey. I've seen a number of great jams on Live From Daryl's House; two of my favorites were the ones they did with Todd Rundgren. Most of the good stuff is no longer up on Daryl's site; but thanks to you, I've found that some is up on youtube. Here's I Saw The Light, shot at Todd's house.

Thanks for that, I did not know about Daryl's house; I will explore it now; so much good stuff!...the Todd Rundgren song has a very different feel from the rest as it's in a different place; must be amazing to ask Booker T and Billy Gibbons, etc. to come over to your place to play some tunes with your band...Tony

Daryl's House is great fun. Super band.

On a different note; my wife and I saw Birdman yesterday,
The score for the movie is AWESOME,

I was going to reveal it, but I think it is best served unannounced. If you have the time and don't mind spending a few bucks for a movie, you should see Birdman. As I was watching I kept getting caught up in the score - saying, I got to know who this is.

If you don't want to see the movie then do a web search of "Birdman score".

"Death Don't Have No Mercy", 10-9-1989 Hampton, Va.

I saw Phil & Friends do it at the "1967" show a week ago Friday and it's been in my head ever since. I'll be jamming with Wolf and some other guys this afternoon ... think I'll introduce it to the group.

Bill, tgo
