Jam -2011-03-16 – Carroll’s

With the Allmans, Furthur and Langfest in town, Scott decided to skip a week with Deadstein.  This gave us the opportunity to put Coffee on the throne.  He hadn’t played with us since August and he said he hadn’t played drums since that time either.  Too bad, because I was gonna need him for the challenge of the night, which was playing the Terrapin Station in it’s album version format.  The part that includes the At a Siding segment with all the drums and everything.  This was Deadstein’s 1st attempt at this and Coffee was there to do it with us.

Before that all started, and as a way to commemorate the passing of Owsley this week, we played Bear’s Choice in it’s entirety to start the night.  Rich sang the Katie Mae to get us going and we did a nice Wake Up Little Susie, which I also newly charted out like the At a Siding in preparation for the jam.  It’s good that we now have those two new songs under our belts or at least in our quivers.  I thought we did the album justice.  Alan played the harp at the appropriate places and the whole experience had an authentic feel including the ways we did the Peter, Smokestack and Hard To Handle.

The Terrapin was also as good as I could have expected.  There is a lot of tough stuff going on, and just a lot of stuff but the whole big Terrapin Experience has been expanded in a big was and for the better.  We also played lots of big songs and the night continued including the Single versions of Shakedown, Scarlet, Help On the Way. The big Garband songs included the Lucky Old Sun and Rhapsody in Red.  For the second week in a row we had the energy and will to play well past the 12:00 quiting hour.  It’s a good sign, a good sign we are playing well, having fun and don’t want to quit.  Coffee don’t make it 6 months to get back in the throne.

    I Just found this great YouTube of the at a siding jam by Furthur. Check it out for reference sake. Much more comprehendible than the album in many respects.
