Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 3:07am coelacanth:

howdy Jeff and others
- i wish the 'dead played like that for 4-5 more years. that's their best album,to me. (vintage dead being neck and neck with it)
of course that song is great no matter how it's done, it seems.

Hey coelacanth!
Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 3:24am coelacanth:

( ...i should add "anthem of the sun" and maybe "aoxomoxoa" and just say they're my 4 favorites.)
Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 3:25am coelacanth:

this is killer! it's new to me.
Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 3:28am Jeff Conklin:

Theses days side 1 of Anthem is my favorite studio Dead.

This is brand new Rhyton, featuring Dave Shuford of NNCK on guitar...

My favorite Dead is Veneta, OR 08-27-72 -- a benefit for Ken Kesey's brother's dairy farm.

Morning Jeff
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 3:40am pacific standard simon:

@Jeff - No, but I see that it is available on youtube, so I will.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 3:40am Guido from Cologne:

Hello Jeff, Joe, coelacanth, p.s.s., everyone!
Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 3:41am Jeff Conklin:

It's a fun watch. The DVD has spectacular sound and color.

Hey, Eric and Guido. Thanks for coming in...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 3:43am pacific standard simon:

Heya Guido!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 3:45am pacific standard simon:

I was 16 that summer, and in the midst of Deadheadness (1971-74).
Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 3:48am coelacanth:

hey Guido!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 3:49am pacific standard simon:

Also, I'd like to second what Joe said about Our Solar System -- trippy, like those extended Country Joe And The Fish jams.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 3:55am pacific standard simon:

Say Jeff -- what's your official position on Amon Düül II? Like? No like? Ever play?
Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 3:56am Jeff Conklin:

I love ADII up to and including Wolf City.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 3:56am pacific standard simon:

Oh, wait, just found the "All artists played by The Avant Ghetto with Jeff Conklin" link. You have.

Great first set, Jeff!
  Mon. 1/25/16 3:58am martin:

rain and snoooooooooooow! and slush. mostly slush. Hai Jeff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 3:59am pacific standard simon:

Agreed. Wolf City the song is kind of a peak, and then... diminishing returns.
  Mon. 1/25/16 4:00am martin:

rattlesnakeplumcakes for all. but mostly, it's jut slush here.
  Mon. 1/25/16 4:01am greysquad:

who needs the Dead if you've got Yximalloo!! his puppet shows are better than any space jam i've ever seen... (only one for the record in it was in the late eighites)l
Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 4:01am coelacanth:

the earlier discussion reminded that i'd saved a grateful dead archive site a while back...but it's either gone or it changed. i found one but it wont play.
...i seized the moment when i bookmarked it and recorded the show that meant the most...but there's more.
it had the show the vintage dead album was culled from. i want that! my album is scratchy plus there are other songs- done in that early style.
  Mon. 1/25/16 4:02am martin:

Right on Jeff, I'll tell James you played Cleveland Wrecking Company on your show, he'll be stoked.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 4:13am pacific standard simon:

Exploring the Jim Moscoso connection...

Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 4:13am Jeff Conklin:

@Tusalava: James and I are in touch. He sent me the tracks as well as some unreleased Fraser & DeBolt, which I'll be getting to in the next hour ;)

Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 4:24am Jeff Conklin:

@Nasty: Nice! I saw him at Lincoln Center some years ago. he was great
Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 4:26am Tusalava:

this song is for going fast.
Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 4:30am Tusalava:

this song is for going more slowly, in an orderly fashion.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 1/25/16 4:35am pacific standard simon:

Oh yeah, baby, go more slowly, in an orderly fashion...
  Mon. 1/25/16 4:42am david from radioactive ks:

geese in the sky look pretty lovely... on the ground, they've got a pretty bad attitude...
  Mon. 1/25/16 4:47am greysquad:

Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 5:00am Tusalava:

Geese are assholes.

Avatar Mon. 1/25/16 5:54am Tusalava:

This show has certainly been the perfect soundtrack for me making my leather work look ... well, less like it is made out of thrift store belts.

take that as a compliment, please.
  Mon. 1/25/16 5:56am greysquad:

Thanks again for another great show, Jeff!

Fraser and DeBolt! Awesome.

Very beautiful
enjoyed very much
Avatar Fri. 1/29/16 12:53pm quinn:

I segmented grapefruits from Rhyton through to the first mic break. DAMN that's time consuming. Really perfect grapefruit segmenting music though.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 1/31/16 11:35pm Santos L. Halper:

Wonderful show Jeff, esp. that epic first set; will have to look into Rhyton, wow.

I presume you'll play some Kantner tonight, so thanks in advance. I pulled out Baxter's and Crown this afternoon, now hearing about Signe too?! Sigh...
