Notes
  • The was only the core five in the room. No guests, no Johnny, very little Dennis, and for the warm-up, no Larry B who scadattles in after a long late day. For two weeks in a row it's lead to a song without him. In all due respect to Larry, I've been loving it because I can spread my wings a bit.
  • I used Kevin's phase box for a second week. The box sounds good but it's filled with fraudulence because it's the box that sounds good and not me. I'll get sick of it soon enough.
  • I think the room sounds nice, real comfortable and open yet the jamming is powerful. I like Larry 's. minimal setup.
  • In planning out the set, Kevin listed to Roosevelt Statdium 1976 for song selection as well as tempo. He wrote the tempo of the first five or six songs and and he tapped them into his little tiny metronome and more. I think he felt okay although I saw Larry M. had all sorts of problems with it. I actually like the use of it. I could get into it. Kevin was tapping in the two tempos/beats, whatever, of the two drummers and trying to coordinate Scott and Larry.
  • As you can tell by the difference in the Kevin's original setlist to what was played, the was a slight mutiny in the room against Kevin, especially in the seconds set. The IMHBTR -> Ship of was was un called for and the wrong number. We substituted them with the China Doll and two extra songs.
  • Last week I was watching the Knick Bull game while writing the set and predicted the Knicks blowing a 10 point lead in the fourth quarter and losing . This is just to tell you I was right.
First Set Comments
  • The Victim was fair I guess but during the final jam I just let loose. I had the phase helping make the mistakes sound good, I had the amp all juiced up and let it rip. It's fun stuff, even though in all reality it really sucks because I don't have the hands or mind to pull off a real lead.
  • The Minglewood was really strong. It was a locamotive and it barreled through the air. That magic box certainly helped be. And they call a capo a cheater.
  • Big River was also very strong, just very well played, steady moving tempo that had authority behind it.
  • Kevin described the Peggy-O as a gallop along a wooded riding trail. Larry M. agreed and it was nice a relaxing.
  • She Belongs to Me had a fast tempo, yet it was quiet and was therefore a challenge but we pulled it off.
Food to Die For
  • Because we anticipated Larry's B's late arrival we planned to eat before and only snack at halftime.
  • I was supposed to pick up cheeseburgers, cold as they would have been, but Morristown construction traffic precluded that.
  • That's okay, Scotts-O to the rescue. He comes in with the falafel and baklava. It wasn't his fault the falafel was gross. Someone should teach those people about animals.
  • I went for half-time snacks including cheese cake, of the cakes, doodles and chips. I had a hickey chicken on a roll. It was tough to stomach that falafel.
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!
  • We didn't get the NFA or Other One on tape because the levels were turned down to 0. It's too bad cause I did new and different jamming during the Other One.
  • I'll let some one else comment on the second set.
Weather

It was very comfortable in the room but was raining a bit outside for the way home.
