Jam – 2010-07-12 – Carrolls

Monday night means a long week ahead of us but when it is the only night to play, well, watch ya gonna do? The good thing is it seemed as if we had additional energy coming from the “pos” we all experienced over the recent weekend. This is the sacrifice we make for Deadstein.

Some one called for a Slow Train Coming, being the July 12 anniversary of the great July 12, 1987 Giant Stadium show with Bob Dylan. Anyway, none of this was in my mind and all I heard in my head was Stop That Train and started noodling on it while others were getting set. It was sounding good so Scott called to play the Stop That Train first and then we would go into the Slow Train to remember the great Dead/Dylan show. We spent much of the rest of the night playing songs reminiscent of of that show including the Morning Dew Playing and the Touch of Grey Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door to close the night at midnight.

The only guests we had were Rob and Miriam who hung and enjoyed for most of the night.  I think they are heading out on the bus to a few Furthur shows so we are a good prep for that encounter.

I was on top of my guitar game, playing well for me, and the amazing thing about it is that is was not premeditated or contrived, just a stroke of right place at the right time in the right state of mind. I fear listening to it realizing that it will ruin my fond memories and the recording will hit me with a brick wall of reality.

Nevertheless, to listen to the songs of the night go to:

    Larry, you should have mentioned your interesting and effective swich of instruments with Kevin on It Takes a lot to Laugh. Who knew?

    Overall, the audios do not dissapoint. Your tone was great and you made the most of it; and yes, we didn’t flag, even at the witching hour.

    That is right, while Kevin was on the phone I picked up his bass and gunked it up a bit during th It Takes A Lot To Laugh … as well as the After Midnight. That is a lot of fun.

    That was a lot of fun. Long haul before Wednesday is here. I never made it to Madison Square Park to see the David Bromberg Quartet last night. I was getting ready to leave my industry event when i had been introduced to a number of potential clients. Oh well, i had to keep the work hat on for the balance of the night. Kev, i assume your compadres mentioned that they saw me.
