    Musical History. This album cover is interesting for many reasons:
    1) Greg is laughing because just before the pic. was taken Duane received an 8 ball of cocaine and is holding it in his hands.
    2) Arguably the greatest live rock album of all-time

    My greatest missed concert. I used to go to the Fillmore East a lot. I went the week before for some triple bill (they were all triple bills for about 7 bucks) and had my eye on one a few weeks after. Wasn't a big fan of the first studio album, it was hard to enjoy on acid, which was the drug of choice after speed. Nobody drank back then, and ludes were a few years away.

    This one was better. Bloomfield absolutely ripping it. I can imagine Pete Seeger on the side stage grimacing and covering his years.

    Can't have a rock history thread without mentioning Hinterland, or the flying toasters

    Wonderful and probably the second best Thanksgiving night in rock and roll history.

    Oh and those Dick Cavett interviews with Janis, John & Yoko, George, Ray Charles, etc. are spectacular.

    it's fucking insane how ahead of their time they were.

    I had a girlfriend 30 years ago who wasn't interested in any music that sounded like it had been "done before"; she was pretty closed minded and I was trying to open her horizons. I played some VU for her and she wasn't impressed because it sounded like it had been done before, it sounded like shit she had heard from other bands. It didn't matter to her that they were doing this shit 20 years before the other bands that she had heard first, lol.

    Yes, The Last Waltz is right up there with all the great performances. Once I got to see Levon Helm and Rick Danko at a small college in NJ (Upsala). I also used to watch the Oakland Raiders at summer training camp there. Sorry for the tangent, but Biletnikoff, Davidson, Lamonica, and Otto were like GODS to me.

    A lot of you have seen this before I'm sure but whatever. Stevie Ray rolls out of bed and heads down for the soundcheck for that night.

    I had never heard this before and I thought I had a pretty good VU catalogue.
    So, maybe I'm trashing the historical objective, but it's pretty cool.

    Rode an elevator with SRV before he got sober. He could barely stand up on the way to his show. Still killed it

    Saw Taj Mahal in fall 2019 at the Triple Door in Seattle. Great show but he’s frail.

    Thinking back, it was at Jazz Alley. We were on his way to the stage. He stopped and said hi

    That's funny. I did the same with Eric Clapton. It was at The Fountainbleu in Miami. I was probably 15.

    Nothing revelatory but loved where Jerry Garcia is asked about the pranksters / LaHonda - "they didn't like us much. that was a heavy academic scene and we were working class" or someting to that effect. To have a prankster nickname, well. that's a pretty exclusive club. Somewhere I found some stupid blog some dude wrote about going out that way late 80s finding trees with faded dayglo paint on the trunks. Then later by the summer 67 they'd moved outta Hait-asbury to Marin county where they had the ranches and the cowboy/indian raids with QMS / airplane. Really cool stories.

    The intro for this show has been on my go to list for a couple of years. Was it as epic as it sounds?
