Jam – 2010-10-20 – Carroll’s

For the beginning of our 3rd decade of Deadstein it was good to get back to some modern, 5-man Deadstein jamming. Rumors of guests showing were just rumors and we just barreled through a night of standard Deadstein music.

We played some nice older songs that we rarely play including the Doin’ That Rag, Mountain of the Moon into Dark Star. We had some nice authentic jams in this segment of music. The late set began with a Help on the Way which concluded where Scott and I fooled everyone and pulled out the old Deadstein classic Help Slip Estimated. It was pretty smooth and the Estimated felt pretty comfortable. We closed the night playing the Casey Jones to celebrate Scott’s recent big sale. Great to have the Deadstein “pos” back in motion. Freak-Out!

To see a little of it, actually it is just kevin turning up his levels and Rich tinkling, Mr. Ed style.

    Some extraordinary jamming here, with great ensemble playing (Here Comes Sunshine); and a grand phoenix of a great x-factor groove rising from the smoldering deep dark crater in the middle of Dark Star , around the 11 minute mark.

    Also, sometimes it’s worth taking a reckless and risky stab at a seldon-played Doin’ That Rag , even though you are fully aware that that you are hurtling so fast towards the inevitable precipice at the end that no amount of Fred Flintstone-like foot-breaking is going to prevent the drop destined from the first notes.
