Jam – 2011-09-14 – Carroll’s

I was at dog camp last week and missed the Deadstein jam.  It was probably a Brotpen dominated night.  This week the tide turned as Brotpen was sick and unable to attend.  Marty Goodman filled in on the keys so we kind of had that covered.  It was Scott’s birthday earlier in the week so it should have been his turn and obligation to call the setlist.  Unfortunately the stars didn’t quite align to achieve that.  First of all, Marty’s repertoire favors the simple songs, as he calls them, and I was on the waning side of a cold I picked up at dog camp.  With the prospects of having to sing every song for the night while being as sick as I was; well let’s just say it wasn’t going to be pretty.

In the end, it was a challenging night.  I was coughing between every verse, I think we lost Kevin sooner than usual and Marty  didn’t quite know every thing we played.  My head was swimming in it’s own mucus.  Thank G-d I think Scott seemed to be on his game and leading us more so than usual.  It was a big help.

I was able to borrow an MP3 recorder to capture the night so I do have MP3s to listen to, so check them out if you must.  The recorder at least worked. By the way, the orange poster for the Nov 4, 1981 JGB Concert at the Albany Palace Theater was from my first show.  I was just searching the web for an image to place up for this weeks jam posting and stumbled upon this thing.  It popped out in my mind as hung in my freshman dorm-suite.  It’s a pretty cool memory.

    He plays lead, he sings, he coughs, he records, he edits, and he blogs, The Gind.
    I though hit and miss, there is good music hear. The Candyman was superb, and the Positively 4th Street I’m on now is soaring. Thanks for taking the trouble to get the mike and capturing this. Listening to the MP3s afterwards is the only wasy I can take it all in without having to worry about where to put my fingers (that’s what she said.)
