Many people find those things enjoyable, Ben.
Avatar 3:22am

Haha and that's fine. I just didn't realize I was early for once and so thought you were having a nervous breakdown or something ...

I have a pretty good grasp on the EDT timezone now, simply from waiting for this show in different countries.

What I'm drinking? Rebel Yell Kentucky bourbon whiskey. Never touch that coffee stuff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13am

Microwaved Folgers. I'm cheap like that.

Just a cup of yorkshire tea over here.

Just woke up from deep sleep to this piece. Great stuff Jeff!
Avatar 4:16am
Jeff Conklin:

Well we had a nice bag of donated coffee here last week. Get here this morning and seemingly 3 pounds of beans and the pot to our coffee machine was MIA. Horrifying.

Good morning Jeff. Waking up with a cup o'joe and yr show on the cans. In Rotterdam and on the debut tour with my new band : DEUTSCHE ASHRAM. Keep up the good work

Sem Chumbo:

Rebel Yell, I remember, is Keith's drink. Evidently, the elixir of eternal life. Good on you,@ pss.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21am
pacific standard simon:

@Jeff - Must be those pesky volunteers, filling our swag bags, who drank it all. Probably walked out of the station guzzling it straight from the pot on the way to the train stop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26am
pacific standard simon:

@Sem Chumbo - There's a Greek legend about someone who asked for eternal life, and got it, but kept shriveling up and turned into a grasshopper or some such insect. Fits our Keith.

No satisfaction there.

No hurdy gurdy listed in the credits -- amazing.

This is very fine, what a trio!

pacific standard simon:

Huh. I was browsing another screen while listening, but when the trumpet came in, I thought, "Damn, that sounds like Don Cherry!"

Fahey, what a card.

Funny story, does sound like Fahey. Genius jerk.

Never heard this before, great vocal track after an instrumental set. Would hate to hear a less friendly vocal after that.

Jeff Conklin:

Oh, man, that Ernie Graham record is great front to back...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:16am
pacific standard simon:

Ernie Graham's face reminds me of those Guy Fawkes masks that you see at protest rallies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:22am
pacific standard simon:

It looks like Graham had everybody in Brinsley Schwarz, including Nick Lowe, playing on his record.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:26am
pacific standard simon:

Sure been hearing "Sing Me Back Home" a lot since Merle died. We all have our favorites.
Avatar 5:27am
Sem Chumbo:

Talk about roots music, the Warlocks or what?
Avatar 5:29am
Jeff Conklin:

I dont know any Merle except for what the Dead covered...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:31am
pacific standard simon:

"Mama Tried" is more the Bob side of Merle -- I like that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:34am
pacific standard simon:

Non-Dead Merle? I'll go with "Always Wanting You".
Avatar 5:40am
Jeff Conklin:

Maybe one day I'll be interested in digging deeper. Not today though...

Uncle Michael did a 3 hour Merle Haggard show on the FMU Drummer Stream. Good place to start, though I can't endorse all his choices.
Avatar 5:45am

Great show Jeff.

Thank you, Ben.

@Simon: Should the day come where I went to delve, I will heed your suggestion. Thanks.
