Notes
  • This was Deadstein's annual Pesach jam. A night to celebrate the proverbial bitter herb. Kevin's setlist includes many of the symbolic references that have been on the minds of Jews during this time of the year. In addition there are many new symbolic references including Richie Haven's "Freedom" and the bondage of women hog-tied. What do you want he's Kevin. The setlist spells out Deadstein and and something Freaks in phonetic Hebrew.
  • There we no guests, visitors or even Dennis. Bill and the Pizza man were the only ones there besides the core five.
  • I continued to use Kevin's phaser box but I had less respect for it tonight.
  • I setup the knobs on Larry' amp for him. I wonder how he liked it.
First Set Comments
  • Alabama Getaway into Greatest Story had a excellent transition even though I jumped the gun a bit. The Getaway was played well and the greatest Story was pretty flawless and comfortable.
  • Sailor/Saint seemed like a trouble but we deserve credit for getting through it with a bit of class and a good transition. The Sailor was correct in structure and well played, We had a powerful Saint but over music interpretations of the verses still needs some work. The jam built to a nice crescendo.
  • Loose Lucy had a nice and easy groove to it.
  • El Paso was well done, without the frantic pace and feel that has been associated with the way we usually play that song. It had a relaxed feel that made it so easy to play it was almost boring.
  • Lazy River Road, like the El Paso, was well played but was also a tad boring.
  • I think the Picasso Moon was well played. The ending jam a a few extra bars during the C#m as I did not explicitly call for the shift in the jam. That's okay because it was pretty good.
  • We had a slight break prior to the Birdsong which was interrupted at the end by the arrival of our favorite Pizza Man from Memphis Trio. This preempted the Promised Land which was listed to close the first set.
Food to Die For
  • MHot Pizza, Try the Rest, Not the Bestemphis Trio was the Main Course. A sausage and meatball pizza was the order. It was Wednesday and not up to Tuesday standards. It was too saucy and was slippery. Some say it was due to unexpected expectorant from the meatballs.. It wasn't the worst thing even though it sent Kevin down.
  • Two meatball parms and a tough veal parm. I had a salad to round it out. While the Pizza and subs were fair the salad dressing drenched the lettuce better than ever.
  • Dr. Peppers and Grape Snapples were the drinks.
  • Passover food brought in by Scott included mandall bread and chocolate covered matzo brittle. It was very good. Kevin drank a bottle of Manischevitz grape syrup flavored wined by himself. It added to his eventual problems.
  • There were no desserts.
Second Set Comments: Brrp! Ahhh! Help me! Are we really going to play? Boy it's cold in the studio. I want dessert! What are we going to cut out? Shit, I wished I washed my hands. My eye is bulging out of my socket. Damn us to Hell!
  • Due to time constraints we skipped the Here Comes Sunshine.
  • The second set, as usual, lacked passion. I think Kevin's inability to burp the disgust he consumed added to this.
  • Larry abandoned the Truckin' singing half way through the song leaving it to me and I was not mentally prepared to sing it and it showed.
  • I think all their songs of the second set were weak
  • Kevin was passed out for the first two-thirds of the Johnny B. Goode.

Weather

It was very comfortable in the room. Weather was not a factor
