A taper friend of mine taped the 92 Compton shows, it was great to hear it when he came back to Chicago. I kind of miss those of days of waiting to hear a show, it was always a bit of an event.

 

I been watching the Ratdog TRI show - the second set is pretty damn good.

where are you watching the rat dog show?

 

never saw compton, but i always had a good feeling about them when i listened. busting out HCSunshine was such a treat!

 

as far as tapes go, didn't you always have that friend who got every damn tape. we'd hang out and listen and make tapes of tapes. TDK or Maxell's only man.

Yeah - that was the event that I was alluding to. It was fun: some drinks, a smoke, and let machines roll. I always used Maxell.maxell_xl_2_90_b%5B1%5D.jpg

Steve Kimock and Mark Karen were on guitars. Sorry, I should have posted a link last night.

That's a repeat of a recent show from TRI. Kimock was too low, imo, but I thought it was pretty good stuff. Liked the dual horns, too.

I agree about Kimock being too low in the mix. I forgot how goofy Kenny Brooks is while he is on stage - his expressions always crack me up. Weir sounded good, too.

no problem. surprised to see kimock. too bad he was so low in the mix. ratdog is so good at the blues songs and the bluesy versions of bob tunes, but they butcher the jerry songs. wonder if they'll ever do another album. i loved that first one from 2000. love that tune money for gasoline.

Why surprised to see Kimock? Wasserman was in there too. Best I've seen Ratdog before is when Karan was out sick a few years ago and Kimock filled in for him. Listen to the Money for Gasoline from Red Rocks with Kimock. Fantastic stuff. Whole show is excellent, actually:

I agree, to an extent, that Ratdog does the "jerry" tunes injustice.However, tunes like "Birdsong" and "Dark Star" allow for ample room to get the horns and spacey vibe going.

I thought the Bird Song and Days Between were pretty good in the TRI set. Chimenti plays some really piano on Days Between - the song does lag towards the end of it, though.

 

I made it to the Terrapin Station Reunion, too - fun weekend.

Early Brent years, Jerry hadn't fallen off the deep end yet.

I agree with this. Most all the shows I saw were during '82 - '84, and although they could be hit or miss then, I always thought they were awesome.

Looking back, I realize how incredibly lucky I was to have seen those shows (and how lucky I am to have copies of them now, too).

My fave Here Comes Sunshine, 11 minutes long, exquisite guitar interplay between Jerry and Bobby, clean tones, crisp picking and tightly synchronized, building to nice crescendos with excellent playing from Keith and Phil, too: http://www.archive.o...erafin.198.shnf

 

HCS was such a jam vehicle back then.
