Larry and Kev for a quick candid on 8-27-2008

Larry and Kev for a quick candid on 8-27-2008

After a week off without jamming Deadstein is getting back together to play a few song.  This week we finally get Scott’s friend Bruce Tanis in to play guitar for us.  It promises to be a slightly freakier week in a different sense, but it will be a Deadstein jam nevertheless.  Look forward to the post jam recap.  I’m taking a camera in so I will hopefully get a few good shots to post. In addition, I assume we will also get the Brotpen recording.  Yoinks Away!

Well, I was the first one to arrive by a good 10 minutes, and I wasn’t early.  When Scott and Rich walked in with Bruce his existence became apparent to me.  As Kevin said, he’s the Les Paul guy, and that he was, the guy with the beautiful Les Paul.

We started with the simple blues of a Mystery Train and continued through the night.  Rich was a in “Yes, and thanks for asking” type of mood and it was a foggy night thereafter.  Rich tilted up the piano and there went Bruce’s bottle of wine.  We got into a nice full Playing in the Band that worked well.  I sang a Shakedown which was I hadn’t often done.  There was plenty of other good stuff.  Let us not forget the Positively 4th Street..  Was it hot?  I forget and it was the last song.  Oh well, at least I made it home.

Scott Bayer was there for a song or two and we played over the cellular network to Carol down the street.  Scott’s leg was tingling and Kevin’s heads was also fizzy.

In the world it was another nice night capping off what was a beautiful August 2008.  Was a bit depressing in the fact that it was getting dark by the time I arrived at Carroll’s at 7:45. 

In the world, the Mets are hanging on to a one-half game lead over the Phillies and the Yankees are like in free fall looking like they will not make the playoffs for the first time in like 15 years.  The Democratic convention is going on and Obama is holding on to like a 1/2 point lead over McCain.   That leads to today’s poll.

    The truth is in the tapes and in this case a fair portion of truth has stuck to the hard drive and is no available for your review at:
    Brothers & Sisters, Deep Elam Blues and a rousing Second That Emotion for the Carolcast shine out along with many other tunes launched during the evening.

    Les and I truly had a great time playing with you guys the other night…we are truly grateful…I thought I might have to administer life support to Kev at one point…fortunately, I got enough of the wine into my glass before the spill to whet my whistle…yes, Larry, the positively 4th street WAS hot…also, the lonely avenue…look forward to another night soon!
