Jam – 2011-08-24 – Carroll’s

This week we were jamming on Wednesday, August 24 and we were scheduled to have the whole band back together again. This was almost the case as Rich was late so we played a not-so-core-4 first set without him and without a recording.

During this first set I decided to try to try to sing some song I usually do not sing since Rich handles the vocals on them.  This was true for the Shakedown, Deal,Gomorrahand Tennessee Jed.  I liked the sound of the first set. Alacommented on how open it all seemed and we discussed how the room can be so much softer and cleaner when the Piano mic is not on.  It’s a different feel.

Rich arrived and we played solidly and recording for the rest of the night through the midnight deadline with a pretty strong While My Guitar Gently Weeps.  As I am writing this blog posting on Saturday afternoon; awaiting the arrival of Hurricane Irene, I don’t remember much and the MP3s haven’t been released yet. “Saturday night I got whammied…Goodnight Irene, Goodnight Irene, I’ll see you in my dreams…,”   I don’t recall any guests but the music was fun and good. We did the creative and well executed Estimated Eyes of the Maker, I thought that was pretty cool, and considering it was late in the night, we did the Eyes of the Maker as well as we do it.  Additionally, we all stayed vertical all night so that was a bonus.

As we are scheduled to play the night after Irene leaves, playing on Monday night will be a bonus that I will truly appreciate.  Be safe and can’t wait to see everyone on Monday.

    I know we all love the concept of unlimited at Deadstein and I can’t stress enough how excellent the $20/year Amazon Cloud player is. I’ve been uploading nonstop for the past month and a half and have over 70,000 songs stored in my cloud player. These songs, including my whole Grateful Dead collection, are now available to me on any computer iPad and eh, iPhone for streaming or download. Ying-Ying, no Yoiink, The only thing not unlimited about this $20/year unlimited MP3 storage deal is how long it will be available for, so I would hop on it while the hopping is good.

    Thanks but isn’t iCloud supposed to come out soon and do the same and more?

    iCloud won’t stream and won’t give you unlimited storage for songs not in their database, i.e bootlegs, band rehearsals, mixdowns, etc. They throw in 5GB of that type of storage but not unlimited. Amazon provides unlimited storage and streaming, a benefit over iCloud. icloud benefit is it will provide you access to songs on your harddrive it recognizes without having to upload physical file. This has taken weeks with Amazon. To each his own, I’ll probably get iClould also one day, but I think unlimited Amazon storage will go away when iCloud comes out.
