Jam – 2009-10-07 – Carroll’s

IMG_0268It was a week that we welcomed Kevin back to the jam after missing it for 2 weeks.  That’s a long time off the wagon that only a Deadstein jam can cure.  Kevin came back to his normal-C from what he used to B.  And felt brand new about it.  So I digress.

Well Trister had to cancel at the last moment and Jason was in Colorado and Al D is in Hawaii, so it left no one but me, who was at home, to play lead.  Scott was able to get Alan Wikler, of August West fame, to play the Bob guitar as I attempted to hold on to the reigns of the Jerry guitar.  In many respects it was quite masturbatory for me all night as I felt I was playing with myself and in many respects I was as I heard many things in Alan that I hear in myself, that we hopefully both hear in Bob.  So while Alan played the Bob guitar, he didn’t sing so I also sang the Bob parts while playing the Jerry guitar.  It was a split personality I was trying to come to grips with all night.  It was a cool experience.  Probably the only time that I have ever played Jerry guitar where I had a person playing Bob.  I think it worked well though my Jerry playing is woefully short and results in a hollow sound in the music.  Nevertheless, it is fun.

I think we got lots of songs in on the night.  We didn’t take too many breaks.  We did have one guest, Scott Bayer to played a great 1-minute bongo boogie with Rich.  I’m glad I captured it on video.  A real collector’s item.  We played all the way to the end with a Brokedown to cap it all off. I tried the Let it Bleed and I thought that showed some fun potential.  It would be fun to do this grouping again.  It was a nice peaceful calm session of Deadstein.

Look at the songlist below.  Rich recorded 18 songs and I show 4 additional songs.  So that is 22 and probably one or 2 others.  That a plateful and quite satisfying.

    I think there was a Hard To Handle after Scott’s Boogie and before Maggie’s Farm. Somehow I managed to not push the record button properly and thus the big jam sequence of the night exists only in our imperfect Memory.

    That’s right, we had the Hard to Handle. That is quite a memory on Rich and quite a plethora of songs.

    We quoted “Dark Star” instrumentally towards the end of Wharf Rat but it is questionable if it was complete enough to list.

    If I remember the moment, it’s worth the DS tease mention.

    Did we also play an Aiko, I’m kind of recalling one at this moment?

    Aiko Aiko fits after Going Down The Road to conclude the Big Jam that didn’t get recorded.

    So is that 24 songs and DS tease?
