Time keeps on tickin ,tickin, tickin into the future.....Hi Phil! Hope all is well. :>)
Just got Jackies new album (American Myth). Some real good stuff. My two favorites are( when your walkin away )and (Im so gone)...Hope to hear these two plus maybe a Box thrown in there somewhere....This run is going to fun. This will probably be my one and only show for NY. Got to see both Boston shows and im very psyched about the possibilities. Have Phun out there!
Does anyone know when Phil will start playing music at the Nokia shows. Ticket says Doors 7 PM. Website says 8 PM. Is there a warmup band?
Website says Doors 7 Show 8. Speaking from experience Phil will hit the stage between 8-8:15
no fucking warm up band!!!
no need for a warm up band!!! warm up at the bar, outside the venue or eating great food somewhere in nyc.....it is GA so there probably just opening the doors for the people that want to get front row.
theres a warm up band for the particle gig on friday. they are called phil lesh and friends. bwahaha, jk - i couldnt resist.
Dylan apparently is playing with Lesh tonight. This is a pretty solid rumor from a usually reliable source with the band.
Notice that there were no Dylan tunes last night, which further leads me to believe that Dylan will join Phil tonight.
As expected, opening night was a letdown which means a monster tight one tonight.

who are you always unreilable sources .LOL
phil started at 8:17 last night. Dont listen to the guy at the door screaming show starts at 830.
I was told, if you get in by 8 PM you can still get a half way decent seat.
I could use a ride back to Rockland County tonight, after the show.
Anybody have any extras for tonight, let me know i'm looking for two.
i just got one on ticketmaster....there going quick......keep trying...u may get lucky....do it as singles.
I cannot wait!!!
isn't Dylan playing somewhere else tonight?
His most recent date was Chicago on Monday night, hard to say what he's up to now...
Weir played about 30 or so miles away last night and has tonight off -- could we see Bobby sitting in tonight?
i did not say it....but I just bought a tix on ticketmaster about 2 hours ago, becasue i heard that a certain Bob is coming out tonight, just not Bob Dylan.
Sorry guys, ima go chill the funk out today with ma peepz in the hood fo' a lil' while, smokin' some dubz and rollin' up l gimme gimme. so i aint gonnaz playa at yo' show tonight, you bunch of ho-nuggets. But I would like to join tomorrow night, since RATDOG's show is CANCELLED TOMORROW NIGHT.
there could also be ryan adams at tonight's show - he just finished playing on the david letterman show
i saw the letterman show (taped at 4:30) - ryan was great - he played three tunes, two of which will be webcast right after the letterman show ends tonight, at www.cbs.com i think - they posted the address on the monitor at the end of the show, but i couldnt see it very well from my seat.
i hope ryan adams stays far away. that man is a disaster on the stage. i was at the fillmore san fran when he left the building halfway through second set and never returned. pathetic.
SOmeone pls tell me who/if there is a special guest and what the opener is/was.
no opener, no guetsts so far
any idea on the setlist from tonight yet?
no setlist update yet?
come on where's the updates. This is as weak as the shows i guess
Setlist so far?????
Anyone have a read?
why is it that everyother night there is song by song updates and tonight.... theres nada?
What I've Heard....
FOTD, Tell Me Mama, Deep elem Blues, Deal>7 Jealous Sisters, Ball and Chain, Alabama Getaway
Ball and Chain ala Janis???
Jackie has a song called Ball and Chain .... might be his song ... dunno tho.
definitely NOT the Joplin tune. Correct title might be Like a Ball and Chain
yep. correct title of JGe song is "Like a Ball & Chain" ... one of my fav songs.
cell block #9?
but that would be 2 jackie songs in a row...
china cat @ 10:05
althea @ 10:17
hey, we have a winner. philZ. nice work, man!
Helpslip \ Franklins
Encore - Ripple.
there has to be something missing
90 minute althea, whats wrong with that ;)
haha, last night was so much fun. for me my fav phil show since seeing him in ct with warren jimmy etc fall 01. cant wait for tomorrow. would love to see some nice tight dylan and a cold rain and snow. good night fans. sweet dreams of tomorrow
dude i bet that 90 min althea was awesome .... i hope jackie was soloing for at least an hour of it
Just got home from show. Did not write down set list but after althea were a kind of spacey jam, I'm So Gone, Don't Let Me Down, Uncle John's Band. First set had a bar-band feel, good, but not dead music. Second set slow start, china cat was not great, but things heated up with Althea, Don't Let Me Down was great, Uncle John's band was played the old way. This version of Phil is more 1970, Workingman's Dead than any other period - there is jamming, but it is more about the songs. It won me over by the end. The H/S/F was outstanding and Ripple, although the harmonies were a little wonky, was heartfelt. Overall, a fun show.
Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention a hot Cumberland Blues in there somewhere.
First set had a bar-band feel, good, but not dead music.
What music was it then? Johnny Paychex?
Dead music comes in many forms...
The show smoked. Plain and simple. They really got cookin towards the end of the first set with the Deal>Alabama.
I filmed some various parts of the show for my home viewing, so here is the Alabama:
It came out pretty good- its from tonight 11/1.
Give a listen.
^^^I'm stealing this link to put in Other Stuff, thanks ^^^
Cumberland Blues and Dont Let Me Down were the highlights of the evening
This is what I recall:
FOTD, Deal, Deep elem, alabama...everthing else in set 1 was a tune I did not know- not a dead tune.
Set two was very well played and simply put rocked. I was impressed with Jackie tonight as well as the entire band. Set one was a slower set and not as jamming as set 2, but that was okay it was still well played, and I was tired at first from last night anyway.
Chinacat>Althea>gone wonderin>unclejohns>jam>don't let me downjam>Help>slip>franklins. Ripple.
This is what I remember, some of jackie's new stuff in set one and two mixed in here, great show! Security was tighter tonight. BUt did not stop me from hittign the upper tiers.
Greta show...started earlier tonight...last night 8:30, tonight, 8:15 took the stage. .
gone wandering>cumberland>the wheel tease>uncle johns band
what did Panik play tonight?
dont let me down was on the money! band all smlies allnight phils lovin it
I'm pretty sure that there was a problem with the philzone server last night from around 10:30 until the end of the show... I tried to provide song-by-song updates, had my iphone locked in to the venue wireless and the remainder of the Internet was a-o-k, but got no response here. Oh well, I'll try again over the run. Setlist posted above seems right although there was a Jackie song in the first set that I didn't know.
Very good show -- I'm a buyer on Jackie Green! What a voice! He has that rare genuine quality of youthful sweetness + energy & power + confident control and he seems to have gained comprehensive command of the material over the course of the run.
I'm typically inclined toward more expansive and open jam-oriented shows of which this was clearly not, but it was best-of-breed for the concise-yet-powerful-n-clean variety. Deal, Althea, Cumberland, and especially Don't Let Me Down all highlights. The pre-UJB Wheel tease was fun and extensive and lingering and the most meandering jam of the night and really quite good. No substantive flubbery or emotional downers -- very consistent. Not a mind-blowing experience or half of the Glen Falls gig by any stretch, but eleven bazillion times better than the #@&! Phil trotted out @ S.O.B.'s back in the spring. Phil looked happy, I looked happy.
A note on the venue, which is fine and serviceable (I strongly prefer the Beacon but what else is new) -- the security follows a pattern you can almost set your watch by, where in the first 15-20 minutes of the gig they make quite the show of nabbing a few people for smoking of assorted variety or other supposed infractions... and then, poof, they are gone like wind. So, you know, don't be one of those demonstration cases. YMMV but this pattern has been witnessed multiple times at this venue. Dank-friendly (good) but also death-stick-friendly (not so good), NYC smoking ordinance be dammed. More drunken-party vibe than I'd prefer but par for the course and not a big deal.
Looking forward to seeing three more shows on the run. See Jackie Green! Cheers,
riot in cell block# 9 used to be done by the GD in 1970-71, most notably in the 4/26-29/71 run at the Filmore East Run. It was full of sirens and nonesense, really. I used to have an album in the mid 80s called 'Garcia's Gang.' It was when it was taboo to sell bootlegs but cool to have an underground LP. Is it the same cellblock# 9 song or something else? Anyone know what I am talking about? I have heard of this song a few times this tour.
Appreciate your efforts to keep the rest of us informed, Phillip!
>>>Not a mind-blowing experience or half of the Glen Falls gig by any stretch
Looks like I made a damn good choice in attending the Glens Fall show; it was one for the ages, as a friend recently said to me.
It is NOT Riot in Cell Block #9.
Back from last night's show with my wife, daughter and one of her friends (daughter/friend go to a lot of shows). Rarely do we agree on the overall impact of the show, but last night we were all on the same page:
First set: They just couldn't get their footing. Now I understand the "bar band" reference I've read. Had me wondering about seeing this group 6x at Nokia. At set break, a bunch of peeps who've seen them before this tour, assured me the 2nd set would be better.
Second set: They were right. Enjoyed the set very much. Chinacat was a good start--I usually don't like Phil's Althea--but this one was very good. Cumberland was high energy, Don't Let Me Down was fabulous, and the Help-Slip-Franklin's was one of the better ones I've heard.
Not a great show, but a good one, and lots of fun.
anyone else catch when jackies vocals would cut out, and the one time phils did? im not sure if it was because there are no vocal monitors on stage so we lose it up front or what.
An overall solid show last night. Some low-energy or slightly unfocused moments, but from two excellent vantage points--about 15 feet back dead center for the 1st set; right behind the tapers in the middle section of the venue for the 2nd--I found the sound great and the music pretty consistently good.
Phil was in fine spirits and was thundering away throughout the evening. Molo was rock steady and had some fantastic booming moments. Larry (with that very odd grin of his) played some nice solos and accompanying parts throughout, Molitz added many nice flourishes (and was very present at many times, not at all unhearable as I've read), and Jackie provided a nice new voice and sound.
I really liked the venue (very intimate) and had no hassles from security in the middle of the pack where I was. It got a bit warm, so dress accordingly.
I'm going to only one other show (11/8), which seems to be about the right amount for this band and for my terribly advanced age of 44.
What I enjoy most about Phil these days is that he is so present in the music and so clearly digging what he's doing. When everyone talks about "bad" GD shows in the 1980s and 1990s, I think a lot of the problems stemmed from a malaise that had settled over the band, perhaps caused by or heavily influenced by too many hard drugs and too many years on the road. I've always regretted that the band, in the later years, didn't take longer breaks in touring in an effort to reenergize itself. Those periods would have possibly allowed them to rediscover the wow in their music and, like Phil haas done since 1999, rejuvenate the entire experience.
All in all, a very solid evening of music. Not the "greatest ever" (see my thread of last week that riled a few folks here), but certainly a fun time. And that's all I'm really looking for these days....
ok - this is what I got:
First set: Friend of the Devil, "another day has come and gone", Deep Elem Blues, Like a Ball and Chain, Deal> Jam> Tell Me Mama, Jam> Alabama Getaway
Second set: Jam> China Cat Sunflower> Jams> Althea*, Jam> "dance with the devil"> Jams>
Cumberland Blues> Jams (Larry on mandolin, HEAVY Wheel tease)> Uncle John's Band> Jams>
Don't Let Me Down, Help on the Way> Slipknot!> Franklin's Tower E: Ripple
*Jackie on organ, Steve on beautiful piano runs
It doesn't really look that spectacluar on the page, but when I list Jams, they were well constructed and finished jams leading one into another - beautiful transitions. That Wheel tease should have been the Wheel. All Larry had to do was start the song. Instead! BLAM! Uncle John's Band. And it was way powerful. The second set was way powerful.
I gotta say: I like Jackie's tunes, and I like to hear a couple of them - say one in the first set and another in the second - but four is too many. Not because I don't like Jackie, but because I go to shows to hear classic Grateful Dead music. Deal was sweet, but it was too laid back. Alabama was nice, but didn't quite have it. Another two Dead songs in the first set in place of two of the *three* Jackie songs would have suited me better. There could have been a St. Stephen in there to lift the energy levels.
I need that Wheel now! lol
Oh! And that Cumberland was out of hand, man. Damn! It was wicked like Europe '72, but it went further out at times. Phil would bring them back with that thumpin' bass. Actually, I have never heard Phil's bass sound so good, crisp and thumping and well-defined.
And they all looked sooooo stoned when they got on the stage. And if I'm not mistaken, Molo let out a huge hit just before he sat down for the second set. Big smiles.
My first Phil show. What a good time. Didn't they play a song called "Seven Jealous Sisters" last night? I wasn't that wasted, I 'm sure I heard it.
"Seven Jealous Sisters" last night? I wasn't that wasted, I 'm sure I heard it.
Good comments all around. But sincerely, I think that might as well bill this band as 'The Jackie Green Band feat. Phil Lesh.' If I'm not mistaken, this is how it will be with the Letterman appearance, correct?!?! Best vocals of any Phil lineup, but some of the most 'inexperienced' jams needless to say. AND BTW - Nokia is not my most fav venue in the Metropolitan area. Make sure you have proper expectations before heading down the Space Mountain escalators @ Nokia.
It's not the Jackie Greene Experience at all, though I do suspect that he's using this time with Phil to build up more of a name for himself (and certainly there's no reason to hold that against him).
While Phil is not singing so much lead (he did play a big part in the harmonies on many songs), it's still very much his band. He clearly is the ringleader who's letting a younger player take a prominent role at times.
I agree with "floop" that Phil's bass was very present and dynamic last night.
i thought last night was solid. started to jam a little more. overall energy of the second set was very high. it was a nice step in the right direction from halloween which was interesting but lacked flow. i think this run will just keep getting better. this might have been the first time i've seen this band execute a fabulous beatles cover...go jackie go!
Great show. Not as hard as wednesday's show, the guys were relaxed and played beautifully. Phil was true to form, of course, and the rest of the band was also great. I thought Larry played some of the best guitar i've heard from him during alabama getaway and the mandolin jammy intro to UJB was stellar. Molo was Molo, nothing more to say. Steve Molitz is really coming into his own with this band, I think he's brining something unique to the table and I like it, although I'd love to see him unleash a bit more. Jackie is doing a great job. He's doing the material well, his guitar seems to me to open up more every night (confidence I guess) and he's all around cool on stage.
Great stuff. Thanks so much Phil. See you next week.
lazy lightning: thanks for the visual-link. I'm dancinging in my seat. "Alabama getaway..."
Don't let me down really complemented what this band does well, great song for Jackie's voice. Really perfect song for these guys.
skeptical envelopment did a good job at reviewing the show.
i have to say that Larry C picked it up a notch for me. I am usually not the biggest fan of his guitar work but, when he picks up those other instruments the man blows me away. So after a lackluster performance from him on holloween and with him only playing the guitar..it was nice to see him come right out with the mandolin on the first tune of the night. Then he went to the fiddle and then back to the mandolin.
This set was actually really good, for me it was the best set of the first two shows here at the nokia. The china cat was good, the cumberland was good, then all of the sudden the jam that cruised into what i thought was going to be the wheel as well, but i had a feeling they had a trick up there sleave becasue i could see phil smiling and still talking to his boys through the pa system. then into a really great version of UJB, which featured LC ripping it up on the mandolin. UJB got me all juiced up and i was anticipating a big finisher....I was hoping for a scarlet>something really cool....but BANG Help/Slip/Frankins....now i have never seen the dead perform this sandwhich, i am too young, but i have to admit this was a really good version, LARRY RIPPED IT UP, Everything...the help, then i finally saw what LC fans are talking about. To me he made that h/s/f just becasue of his guitar work throughout the whole thing. It was really great to hear.......and it really is so nice to see ohil having so much fun.......
I also saw that when molo let out the puff of smoke, it made me laugh.
The first set actually finished up with deal>long jam>seven jealous sisters>alabama getaway....very, very good. the second set has a I'm So Gone after the Don't Let Me Down and the subsequent jam, prior to the HSF. The China Cat>Jam>Alhea was way phat with Phil just taking charge with ripping bass lines.
Just wish G was there....
I am so happy to hear that people had such a good time last night. My comments of yesterday, pertaining to those of us west of the Hudson River having a blast at these shows are borne out with last night's show reviews. These guys are such a solid ROCK and ROLL band - I've loved Phil's zeal for the jams, something he clearly needed to keep his interest (and why the 80's and 90's had him looking bored most of the time) BUT it is awesome to see him come more to the middle, if you will, and concentrate on song structure. It is SOOO much fun to see him grinning from ear to ear for most of the show. And certainly he is loving watching 'the kid' blossom and belt out some great vocals. Another thing I like about Larry and Jackie is that they clearly dig playing together. At Red Rocks, during acoustic Tell Me Mama, when Jackie just started going off vocally, Larry was laughing his ass off. That kinda stuff is fun to watch for me as a fan - the musicians clearly IN THE NOW. Enjoy the weekend shows and I hope they only keep getting better.
"I also saw that when molo let out the puff of smoke, it made me laugh."
good ol' Mt. Molo
It's very clear when you are watching these guys play that they are having a BLAST doing it, and the energy is infectious. I prefer the deep space side of the Dead's music, but I am loving watching these guys rip it up. Sure, I'd love a 45 minute '73 style Dark Star, but I'm more than happy to groove along with these guys. This is my first time seeing Phil since 1991, and it's astonishing to see him so animated and happy with the music. It's such a sharp contrast to the GD back in the 80s. Go to these shows with a playful spirit and you will not be disappointed!
anyone? what time did the show actually start last night-Thursday, Nov 1st
started @ 8:20 went to about Midnight.
actually, you could see a piece of tape on the amp behind jackie - someone wrote the exact start times on it - 8:21 start of set 1, 10:19 start of set 2
i saw the first 3 out of 4 shows on this run on the west coast. i was sure this band would be rippin by the time my friends on the east coast got there PHIL. sounds like i was right, i dig jackie greene and thinks he is very good for phil. phil is happy, i am happy !!!! see some phil and your heart and soul will be happy as well!!! love ya all
Did anyone catch the Santana "Soul Sacrifice" theme early in the second set? (That's the song Santana shredded on in the Woodstock film . . . blistering rendition).
As for Jackie's songs, I appreciated them even with their obvious borrowing (read: influences) and also because they were nice, discrete pop-rock songs.
How was the security to get in to the Nokia? Did it take awhile or smooth sailing??
>>>actually, you could see a piece of tape on the amp behind jackie - someone wrote the exact start times on it - 8:21 start of set 1, 10:19 start of set 2<<<
Set 2 actually started before 10:10 though, probably about 10:05 because I checked my watch a few minutes into it and it said 10:10.
(actually my clock on my iPod, so I know it was the actual time since I've got it synced into a data base)
I'm pretty sure that set 1 actually started at 8:15.
You can probably expect the second set ending to be fairly precise every night because stagehands start getting paid double time at midnight sometimes at 11 depending on the contract.
I've been to shows of other bands where they go right up to the minute and stop -- the Town Hall benefit for the Knitting Factory, for example, where the band was just wailing with no sign of stopping and the organizer came on stage and cut it off.
security not too bad. cursory wands. guy did check my pockets a little bit but no big deal. no pat down per se.
some bozo usher did threaten to have me thrown in jail for walking out with an empty cup after the show was over! I laughed at him said "there's a cop right over there, I'll bet you money you can't get him to arrest me for walking out with this plastic cup" -- usher gave up and walked away.
"....got an empty cup..."
My short but sweet review posted last night...
Great fun show! So many messages in this show...head games and all. Take that for what it's worth.
Dont Let Me Down.....
Simply Fucking Beautiful....Just so meaningful. And it was played great!
Help Slip Franklins was a sweet birthday present from Phil. Only this one was all about the Help on The Way...so many love songs, and poke fun at love songs...the Help on The Way was reassuring.
Then the Slip...
ya...ok. Phreak on and in full release! Just a real intense slip...as warranted. The dark side of love...the dark side of us...the hidden creatures within stirring and wanting realization in the dance.
It was sick!
And the Franklins, again, just had a great message!
It went on forever and its always so fun to look around at all the beautiful celebrating going on.
All in all just a fun show with some special meaing for me I suppose. Where I'm at in my life...The new beginning ahead of me...the excitement, fears, love, and rejuvination of it all.
It was just what the doctor ordered.
THANK YOU PHIL
It truly is a gift you give to us...I am so grateful!
>>>Help Slip Franklins was a sweet birthday present from Phil.<<<
Does this mean it was your birthday on the 1st?
My birthday is Halloween & I was at both nights. The whole package.
Gave special meaning to me to a couple of songs on Halloween--
voodoo chile, for example with the line "The night I was born...."
Friend of The Devil
Ball & Chain (not the janis song)
? - jackie Green song
Along with 2nd set songs A much mellowier set than halloween (what were we to expect?) with country rock (workingmans dead) feel......
Which only leads me to believe that we are in for a great mix of music this seies of NY shows.
Here is the Cumberland I shot- smoking, and too long for Youtube, so its only 9:40 here
Jamming. Molitz needs to be positioned closer to the band. He is way out on stage right.
Thanks FLOOP for the nice setlist.
Much nicer overall show than Weds. Much more friendly and heady vibe. Expect it to get crazy in a good way this weekend. I loved most of it. Volume was much better than Weds. but could still go up quite a bit. If you like your vocals crisp sit behind the speakers about a third of the way up the seats or higher. It was harder to feel the music which I didn't like but the vocals were muddy everywhere else in the room that I checked. A mic pointed directly towards these speakers will capture a cleaner sound than what I heard in front of the rail.
Jackie was outside after the show saying hello which I thought was really cool.
FOTD and Deep Elm set a foot-stomping goove for the first set. Jams were nice and added a lot of the music to the first set. Jackie tunes flowed well. Deal had an audio abortion towards the beginning, got me laughing pretty hard, Steve saved it with the keys then the guitars came a roaring. Only downer in the first set for me was Alabama. The jam before was touching on several different tunes and going places then all of the sudden bam cut to Getaway. This band is getting hot and has a good vibe going, Phil needs to turn them loose and thump that bass.
The 2nd set started with a China Cat that was more driving than light and fluffy. Started transition to rider but then wondered away. Both Jackie and Steve were great on Althea, organ and piano together was nice and kept it moving. Phil's vocals were down right humorous. I would love for him to have a big enough sence of humor to not lead any vocals for a show in the run then encore with belting Day Job at top volume. Jackie could have done a better job. There was a point in the next jam (I am pretty certain it was the jam between Althea and Cumberland, but definately at some point in the 2nd set) when Larry was given the go ahead blew his guitar nut all over the place for about 30 seconds. Amaizing to hear him rip it ohh so nice. It went staight to the center of my brain. Cumberland was smoking, there was one jam in particular that really hit the mark. The "Wheel" tease I thought was more heading towards Love Lights. Jackie singing on Don't Let Me Down was fantastic (goose bumps). IT was begging to be torn up all over the place but they kept it in line. H/S/F was similar to the Tweeter Encore in quality. The 2nd set was mind blowing and left little places to go for an encore. A light and mellow ripple finished it off perfect.
4:50 PM -- Isn't now about the time that somebody should be posting they've heard "from a credible source" that Bob Dylan is playing with Phil tonight?
I've heard from a credible source that Steven Malkmus is dressing up like Bob Dylan and joining Brian Eno (dressed up as Damo Suzuki from Can) in joining Phil, his Friends, and special guest Tom Constanten on hurdy-gurdy in a special free-form tribute to Brian Wilson tonight. It's VERY credible source, folks... you heard it here first!
Well, MY credible source is a guy who knows a girl who once slept with a roadie for a band that Phil's son heard on a radio station that has a DJ who claims to have smoked a doobie with a girl who's daughter played soccer with a kid who's uncle was a major deadhead, who claims ... what were we talking about again?
WOW, that's incredible!
Larry Campbell's licks puts Jackie's to shame - word.
like a master and a student?
are there extras available before the show? i live nearby and was thinking of going sat night. i'm willing to pay face - not looking for a miracle
Jackie Green is a better guitarist than Larry Campbell. More economical perhaps (less notes), but what he plays fits better with the songs than what Campbell plays. Larry is good and sometimes excellent but he brings to mind "jack of all trades, master of none."
My biggest complaint is that he has no lead "voice." He's ok at playing the parts and making the right changes in a song but he doesn't ever give a strong lead guitar voice against which Phil can play. Everyone from Jerry to Herring and Haynes would "play with Phil." They would play long leads and develop their own musical ideas against which Phil could play and dance around. Campbell is just playing the parts as written. Except for a tasty lick here and there he's really not playing lead guitar. He doesn't seem to be taking ownership of the songs and saying, "OK, this is my song, I know how it goes now and here's how I feel like doing it tonight. Play along with me because I'm the lead guitarist, damnit!" He's not doing that. He's doing a Wellnick. He's playing what he thinks Phil wants him to play when Phil would be best served by Larry making the music his own and then really giving Phil someone to play off of.
I don't know. Maybe it's just a lack of familiarity with the material. All I know is Phil spends too much time trying to conduct the band and not enough time jamming with them. It's always Phil leading and directing the jams. I guess this can be great but shouldn't the lead guitarist lead the jams and set the direction of the music at least some of the time?
Mandala - Just like a master with his student....
For every 10 licks Jackie lays down, Larry only needs half that amount to fill the same void - his sound is bigger and better, but Jackie's not that far of.
They compliment each other nicely, but this show wouldn't have been squat w/o Larry's sweet leads. Word.
Riot In Cell Block #9, played once, @ Fillmore East April 27, 1971 W/ The Beach Boys.
here are some pictures from Times Square 11-01-2007 if you search around there are some other great shows here as well, please be my guest.

I guess lots of other people have said it already...it's not that Riot In Cell Block #9. This one is a Jackie Greene composition (a real good one by the way).
