Ok one time about 17 years ago or so my wife and I were camping out a few nights in Monument Valley...We had our tricked out '78 Westfalia ...(I say tricked out because we had bought it from a German mechanic who had changed the suspension, had dual carbs, Mercedes wheels, etc) I had installed a pretty severe sound system and we were quietly playing a '77 Betty Board...a couple of youngsters walked up to ask what show were we listening to and I told them and they hung for awhile...they told us they were doing the cross-country thing for some Phish shows and were having a grand time...being the polite sort I am I told them that was cool...after a bit we called it a night and popped the van top and hit the sack...when I got up to get the coffee going before sunrise i found a folded sheet of paper tucked into one of my wind shield wipers...it had three Cdr's of an aud Phish show and a thanks from the kids for the previous night's hospitality...I always thought that was a pretty sweet thing for them to do...of course I used the Cdr's for coasters but that's another story....

Rovalle tells of his enjoyment of telling Phish fans who wrote When the Circus Comes to Town

I think the closest Ric gets to a Phish fan is when he brushes past the Phish Food when reaching for the Chunky Monkey.   :drool:

also - regarding Jesse's post above mine - my dime account has been suspended re: inactivity...is that my SBD/AKG matrix?

Crack-
No, that recording on Dime is from Ras.

Great discussion!

I'll take the chance to express my deepest gratitude to all recordists of the greatest rock band of all time.  Often, listening to your recordings make my daily life a better place to be -- Some days that is a very tall order and I am not overstating things (no matter how gushy that sounds).

(Aside: My trying not be gushing about this band and you recordists is like Crack saying he'll try not to come across as an ass  :lmao: [I owe you that for showing me your imitation of me dancing.....very troubling because it was so accurate <3].)

Interesting comments about the GD -- They taught me a few things, and one was how to listen to music. I'm a guy who doesn't have much else going on in my life -- Passion for live music is very deep, it is what feeds my soul.  The GD also introduced me to music I would never know of otherwise.

I love LL more than any other artist for so many reasons -- And I am indebted to them for all the music they have introduced me and how they always broaden my knowledge of musical history. A quick gander at some of my recent downloads shows the artists I first saw/learned of because of LL: Alejandro Escovedo; David Lindley; Cafe Tacuba; Lila Downs; Blasters/Alvins; LP3 & the Tragedy (Yay!); Calexico(?); Doug Sahm; Delgado Bros.; Catch 22; The Modernettes; Los Centzontles; Max & Josh Baca; The 44s; Little Willie G.; Richard Thompson; and that duo of orthodontists from Tijuana playing some Mexi-Techno who opened Fillmore shows a few years back; etc. etc.

Rovalle tells of his enjoyment of telling Phish fans who wrote When the Circus Comes to Town -- And I get it:
Go and tell some JGB fans who wrote Evangeline -- Good times!

So, all you recordists, your efforts and investments and spreading the music -- You all will leave this world a better place than it was without you -- I have some love for y'all  :yahoo: :-*

Peace, ese

So,

Maybe they can make it over to HSB for the weekend. Any idea when the lineup will be announced? I have put HSB on my bucket list and was thinking of making the trip this year.

They should begin releasing the lineup soon.

The first round of artists was just announced... no Lobos yet... then again they tend to save a lot of the heavy hitters for later... Lobos definitely got one of the most rousing audience (full disclosure - Crack was the instigator) responses I've ever seen there...


the only encore in the history of the festival  :8):
