    Yeah MrC the Last Waltz lineup is stacked to the max. Me thinks it’d be a helluva good time. Spinning The Band’s Live At The Academy of Music 1971 this AM. The Band screams Thanksgiving to these ears.

    8″ expected in my neck today starting any minute now. Snow should taper off my early/late evening. Hope my lil sis gets in late tonight as scheduled from The Mile High. Stoked to see her. She was the first one to recommend I try on sobriety for size. Wasn’t ready to hear her @ the time but perhaps she helped to plant the seed. Snowy hike tmrw AM is in order. Will make her wakey wakey eggs & bac’y first though.

    Safe travel to all yall mofos & your peeps today/tmrw. Let the record show that I’m thankful nay grateful for the BB & all its muffin sniffing inhabitants. Thank you Mr Miner.

  7. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    nice pics, fool!

  8. RicksFork Says:

    T3! Todays Bowie, Oh man! Looking forward to your thoughts on that 94 show.

  9. Jerome Garcia Says:

    This looks like this could be an interesting discussion…or perhaps not…

    Starting this afternoon at 4pm ET SiriusXM’s Jam_ON will host a Roots of the Jam Weekend. Along with Jam_ON’s steady musical favorites, the channel will offer selections from the jamband scene’s progenitors from the 1960s and 70s. Music will be curated by the Relix editor-in-chief (and founder) Dean Budnick, along with David Gans and Gary Lambert from the Tales from the Golden Road. Beyond the good ol’ Grateful Dead, one can expect to hear the sounds of electric Miles Davis, Lou Donaldson, Grant Green, Paul Butterfield Blues Band and many others.

    Ricks queuing up this Bowie of which you speak. Perhaps best sound quality on the tube of you?

    Gonna check Phish OD too.

  10. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Gotta think MiA was at this ‘hometown’ show in Minny re 11/26/94. Were you?

  11. RicksFork Says:

    Interesting JG. That could be a cool listen. Jam_On loses out in my car often as I’m not really into a lot of what they play. This will be a good reason to tune back in.

    The phishtracks sound on this Bowie is pretty good, but I will check your youtube for comparison. This Bowie is a beaut. Enjoy.

  12. Jerome Garcia Says:

    Tripostin…sound qual on PhishOD sounds pretty tucking amazeballs thus far. Going w/ it.

  13. Type III Jamming Personality Disorder Says:

    a day of scarce but fierce phishtory today.

    a nugget from the tape trader days, 1990 was at The Haunt in Ithaca, NY. notable mainly for teases and such you get the last of the Mo’ Better Bowies, a Maki with Manteca keywords, a lyrical Hydrogen, and more of the like. not really a jammer’s dream show but an interesting trip into the way back machine in some ways.

    the next one is a doozy. The Orpheum in Minneapolis from 1994. this one gets moving right out of the gates from the MFMF>Possum on. Strong Foam in that first frame as well. but it is the Bowie that you know here and for good reason. it is the massive one before Providence that also goes type plaid. seriously, just stop reading my silly words and go listen already! and you also get the ALO Slave to cap off things here which is pretty dang nice. overall, this is a high quality fall ’94 affair but that kinda goes without saying.

    and then there’s that one from Hartford in 1997. smacks you in the face with a big Tweezer to open then gets funky in Gumbo before the first set caps off with a very fine Taste if I do say so myself. the second set? yeah, it’s only the one jammed out Zero ever to open in fine fashion followed by a typically funky stretched out ’97 2001 into a groovy Cities into a pretty nice Ya Mar before they eventually get to a soaring Caspian after a stop in PYITE. just your standard Fall ’97 fare. and, hey, Cavern has the original lyrics in the encore if that is your sort of thing too.

    so maybe not the most bountiful day ever but 2/3 there are super high quality shows for your travel day enjoyment.

    Classic dead-thread posting by plord in the prior comments there

    Bad blotter definitely preferable to the other directions you can go in HS, especially when the dark drugs are so common in your area….

    It’s pretty rare to get transcendence right off the bat at first drop without the perfect combo of set and setting…There are a lot of other layers first. I wish her safe journeys.

  15. RicksFork Says:

    T3, well said as always. You inspire me to listen. This 94 Bowie goes without saying as a classic. Personally, I like it more than Providence. ::Takes Cover::

    For the first time in a while I can say that I was at one of these shows. Hartford 97 was an experience like no other. That second set and the Zero especially are up there with my most favorite in show experiences ever. And yes, I am into that sort of thing and love the original Cavern lyrics.

  16. Jerome Garcia Says:

    So good it requires posting again here:

    Cargo shorts: So so so not the worst drug fueled fashion statement. You ever seen the purple+flouro bondolier style vest things that globe-tripping, eclipse chasing trance freaks wear? The stash pockets have stash pockets. The washing instructions tag has a stash pocket. The stash pockets have every combination of sipper, button, velcro, and metal snap fastener. There is literally no possible reason for them at all except to both hold yer stash and increase the odds that the man will miss the key pocket when you get searched.

    Y’all can have your 78/79 GD for the day, my goal is to find time to listen to all three “Arches of Dew” that have been released (11/10 and 11/17 ’73 and 3/23/74) and see if I can crown the champion.

    GD: The kids are alright. My teen dropped in her room with a friend *while we were home and awake downstairs* a year or so ago (so, yeah, 17), but she got her shit together almost immediately thereafter. We talked it through; she got the “oh shit hands are weird” experience, no transcendence at all, what do you expect from high school blotter sourced from unknown hands. She’s not running the perfectly straight and narrow but she’s become the stable, dependable one in her peer group so I’ve stopped worrying. It’s like: her trainwreck friends have steered her away from the worst of what teenage rebellion has to offer, which in VT is critical given the state’s heroin problem.

    Speaking of children, my “little girl” turns 9 today. Goddammit. She’s not so little anymore.

    Half the family in the house, the other half trying to drive up from mid-PA and beat the storm. Birthday cake today, pies all day tomorrow, then a long weekend? I’m so into that.

    4/24/78 FOTD to start this rainy day in an empty office. Finally a chance to listen to tunes at work.

  19. tela's_muff Says:

    nice pics DF! i’m amazed you’re able to function enough to walk around and take photos.

    Thank for the push to listen to this Bowie again. Been a loooooong time for me. I’ll spin the Hartford show next. See if I can picture RF doing some praising ala Dicks this year.

    Happy Birthday Leo!!!

  20. Gavinsdad Says:

    If you can be a teen and do doses and make grades more power to you. I left my grades behind in 9th grade and my hs peer group behind in 12th grade. My path was not particularly joyful or enriching if I looked at it in clear light back then. But as you all have heard, my unorthodox path has born sweet and satisfying fruit. More than I could ever imagine so here’s to everyone’s unique and separate paths!

  21. Gavinsdad Says:

    Donna paying attention at this show. Nice. Lets see how she does on the upcoming Passenger.

  22. RicksFork Says:

    Yes, happy bday Leo!

    Praising was done for sure Tela’s. The Zero is so shreddy at points! Love it.

    Aside from the show, I distinctly remember getting pulled over on the drive down from Maine having just puffed and knowing my buddy in the back seat had a full sheet on him. Freaking out does not do justice to my emotions. No ticket, no arrest, no more puffing in the car for a while (at least until the drive home).

  23. MrCompletely Says:

    GD, you’re doing everything as right as you can for em. Now it’s up to them. But you’ve been through enough to know that happiness is a long term proposition.

  24. MrCompletely Says:

    Hartford on tap for later. Not in my normal 97 rotation for some reason.
