The Waybacks — Black Cat.
What’s on your mind?
Wabes! God I miss any of the original bands.
hey newton — how ya doing tonight?
hey larue — how’s sac tonight?
That’s fantastic! Thanks for that treat.
Hot! It warmed up nicely.
hey margot — how was your day? glad ya like them… they really do a wide mix of music and blend them seemlessly… they are mainly a bluegrass band
warmed up here too…. spring is finally springing
rocking it their own way
My dog is feeling very playful and that made for a fun day. She bottled all that energy up all winter long. How was your day?
i had one of ‘those’ days so i decided the best thing was to just hang out on the bay side deck and enjoy the sunshine — token and i kept up the back and forth from inside to the deck for some sun and then back inside until the sun went behind the trees and it cooled way off. lit the fire and closed up the doors and windows for the night. a mellow day all in all
Never heard of the Waybacks. That fiddle player! The rest, too, but I really notice the fiddler. Thanks.
No light show last night like the night before, but did lose power at some time.
hey vc — glad ya liked it. how ya doing tonight? how long was our power out?
The Sweety started her Christmas shopping today….
hey robert — dood, at least she’s not thinking about how the lawn needs to be mowed :) how ya doing tonight?
Aloha, Suz and LLN pups…! The Red Sox-Angels game, in Fenway, is still going on…! 3-3 in the 10th, after a long rain delay, it’s 01:30…! ;-)
I told her what the LLNFDL landscapers told me. She still thinks its an excuse for being lazy….
aloha tut — how’s your island paradise tonight? do ya think they are gonna call the game and resume it tomorrow?
evening, Suzzz, CT, etal.
her focusing on christmas shopping does buy ya some time for it to dry out enough to mow…
hey ppd — how ya doing tonight?
I can’t find squat of the original Wabes, with Stevie Coyle, Chojo, James Nash n Glenn Houston.
Nor can I find any youtube of them after Glenn left, with the others, n when the first rhythm section changed (bass n drums).
Lord they were the Strawberry Camp Fest Jam Band when we started festing in ’01. And they hosted camp live radio nights for many a fest from ’01 thru -06. Twice a year. All I had to do was walk 50 yards up the road n there they were, every night.
Their first album ‘Devolver’, n second one ‘Burgers After Church’ are incredible.
Sadly, Chojo left (he played mando, fiddle, elec git, lead n harmony vocals) n then a few years back Stevie Coyle left (fingerstyle git, lead n harmony vocals).
They brought in Warren Hood between the departure of Chojo n Stevie Coyle. He’s the son of the deceased Champ Hood (lead picker for fantastic lady sanger Toni Price).
Warren Hood is a fiddler n harmony n lead sanger extrodinaire.
N thats the Wabes.
James Nash is one of the hottest unknown pickers alive. Why he don’t do Nashville studio sessions is beyond me, dude can pic, without a capo, in any key.
Here’s Stevie Coyle, James Nash, n Warren Hood Tearing Up American Music.
Likely my all time fave Dead tune.
LeSigh. I need a fest.
Nice hit Sistah Suz, nice hit.
Oh, n Nash burns up the mandolin, too, on their early stuff.
Him n Chojo were the mojo for The Wabes, IMHO.
Here’s dobro legend/hero Rob Ickes at left with the dobro, James Nash in ink shirt on git/harmony, Stevie Coyle at right on elec git, Warren Hood on fiddle left side, N Emmy Lou
Jagger/Richards, Wild Horses.
This Don’t SucK.
Sorry Suz, ya pushed mah fest n music button.
I’m thinking of putting headlamps on the mower and mowing, when the ground dries enough, at night to teach my mowing obsessed neighbor (who clearly The Sweety wishes she had married instead of me) a lesson….
their stuff is rarer than rare larue — i’ve been looking for a front page worthy video for years
wish more of that gravity lounge set was online…. i’ve heard they put on one hella show — how cool that you saw them
I know Hot Buttered Rum String Band from the guy who managed them early on. He also was a partner in The Evergreen Lodge outside Berry Fest outside Yosemite, n made a lot of people happy for years at that fest and Lodge. From ’02 till ’08 when he left.
HBRSB played often at The Lodge pre fests. I first met them first time they played a small set at The Lodge. 2 of them had just backpacked in from Tuolumne Meadows, a 2 week hike n some of it cross country.
Great band, still. Yer pushin all my buttons . . . *G*
Anypups wanna go pacin? Some snow shoes, snow camping, and the skeeters galore but killer country outta Yosemite Park?
thought that might get your attention — all those years of listening to kpig has paid off *laughing*
Saw them lots on stages, and more at private parties and of course, night times for a few years at Berry Fest camp jams.
Good folks, all of them. They all seemed to have time to chat with me back then, and I delighted it it all.
Just lucky, but that’s what festin brangs to ya if ya get there.
I sure miss it all.
the times, they are a changin’
On to the 11th…! ;-)
Killer. Wish I could recognize anyone but Cowan lead vocal and the Wabes pickers. I see a dobro dude on the right . . . heh, did the whole album it sez!
Warren Hood, son of Champ Hood. Do the google, he’s top shelf musician.
Cornbread and Butterbeans
and a plate of jambalaya — who’s got the dessert?
Heh, yep. THen ya know their first two albums.
NONE of it on youtube.
Course, I got secrets, n originals of it all, from CD’s.
If ya need some, email me . . . *G*
red beans and rice
Is that Richie Blackmore from uh, Smoke On The Water band?
N his wife?
OK, I listened to the other two Waybacks links, and they’re on my list now. I do like folk/bluegrass. And I know he ain’t neither, but how about some Kottke?
Hey RA — Good news! Your lawn can be declared a protected wetland — back away from the mower.
pretty good, thanks Suzzzz — happy mother & grandma day coming up.
oh that’s sweet vc
Night before last, about 2.5 hours. Last night, I don’t think very long. Just long enough to knock out the microwave clock.
Good evening all .. gratz on the grand babe Suz .. trust all went well .. my 7th grand babe was born on April 4th and spent the first 3 weeks in ICU due to lifestyles we shall endeavor to ignore for now .. spring is sprung and exercise is in the air .. once the Canucks win Lord Stanley’s Coupe .. /s
ow yer seriously killin me.
Damn. Sam, Doc, his grandson, Cowan . . .
That’s MerleFest Jam Gem. I should know half of them others by sight, but I don’t.
Garenteed, they are hosses.
oh i h-a-t-e that… so many things to be reset …. when its a short outage, it takes longer to reset than the original outage. my power used to go out several times every winter when i was living up in boulder creek. torrential rains, sandy soils and big trees joined forces to take out the lines regularly
Got to see them twice out here in the middle 00′s.
Fine fine artists, musicians, vocalists.
What a great cut of them.
I’n dyin here . . . can I get a fest, please?
hey tearloch — oh my goodness — but out of the NICU is a good thing. how ya doing tonight?
I’ve liked Leo since I first heard/saw him play while I was in college. I have almost every album of his, save one Sony CD, which has DRM on it that I don’t care for. I’m not a thief, and I resent being assumed one. Maybe I can find it in vinyl. Anyway, my YouTube search just now let me see him play for the first time in, um, nearly 35 years. So thanks for that, too.
Heh, Nice, But The Kotke I Love.
In all honesty, this streak of rain is frustrating. I really want to cut the grass. Just 2-3 days without rain would make the ground dry enough to mow without risking damage.
Am well .. playing poker and checkin’ in .. Love Leo Kottke since the days he froze his feet .. a smooth guy .. getting out into the bush some and regaining my sanity .. thanks .. and you?? .. all is well??
Thanks, think it was you who first brought that couple to my attention a few years back. Had never known what happened to him.
You got the gift.
thanks ppd — gonna spend it with jen on her first mother’s day
thanks for introducing him to me — very soothing ear candy
You don’t have to mow the lawn ’til December.
all is well — jujube has hip dysplasia and is in a brace for the next month but it was caught very early and there is a good chance that she won’t need it more than a month. she’s plumping up nicely per jen — can’t wait to see her sunday
I gotta go Pups.
Thanks Suz, for some serious fest memories . . . great vids from ya.
‘N thanks Pups for some other great hits of great music.
All y’all be well, n hug ‘em close.
We do it again in the morrow, dawg willin . . .
i featured them up top a while back — i like finding new stuff to wow ya’ll with
hey mauimom — how’s your island tonight?
Mercy buckets. Will do.
Ah I feel your joy and find it so exquisite, in that we get to do “do-overs” with our grand kids .. life is usually so hectic with our own kids that being we lose the true joy of experiencing a child’s growth ..
My oldest is 16, going on 25, and my youngest got to come home yesterday from the hospital .. life can be good if we let it ..
I mowed the lawn today — but I have a riding mower.
Just finished watching “Oprah” on tape — not a normal event at our house, but my husband had seen that she was going to be doing a special show on the Freedom Riders. [While not a Freedom Rider, my husband did go to Mississippi in 1963 to register voters.]
Anyway, Oprah’s show was good, and she mentioned that NPR will be doing a special on May 16 on the Freedom Riders. Worth checking up on.
all the joys and few of the hassles :) when i was staying there, i mostly slept through those middle of the night feedings so tended to be the person with the most sleep in the house.
Yeah, like that one, too. I find “Monkey Lust” to be one I have to be in the right mood for, but just about everything else of his I can listen to anytime. Well, “Sonora’s Death Row” depresses me, but.
i’ve not seen oprah in years….but do remember that she had some very good serious subject shows in the past
Yes .. the “newborns” parents life is not an easy one .. but oh so worth it .. am glad you are spending this Sunday with the “family” .. enjoy ..
We’re at 140% of average rainfall this year, so we don’t complain.
thanks tearloch — having the grandbaby is reminding me to look at holiday and family celebrations through new eyes… the wonder of it all is all fresh and new again
there have been far too many drought years in ca … tis good ya’ll had a wet year for a change
obl and pot
Glad to contribute. Not all of his stuff is that sweet. The man is an amazing guitar player (6 and 12 string acoustic), and is really something to listen to. His commentary on his live albums is pretty funny and occasionally odd.
We have two birthdays + Mother’s Day to celebrate this weekend, Suzzz
sat is my mom’s 77th bday — she’s off on a cruise so won’t get her b/d wishes until they return — is one of the b/day’s yours?
Night all .. poker getting down to the short hairs .. be well Suz .. travel safe and happy Mom’s day, GRAND MOM! ../s
thanks and g’nite tearloch — congrats on your latest g/baby!
Margot, they’re really great and quinkidinkly I was looking for them for another group of people and then came here tonight and found you playing them. I like it a lot, glad they’re doing that
hey ks — how ya doing tonight?
things are good, really pretty and lo pressure atmo, so high puffy clouds and soft breezes
always like the homegrown kinda music
sweet. steph is in ks tonight and heads to missouri tomorrow — her roommates’ had a death in the family and she is going back with them for the funeral.
Not mine — Dad’s & sister’s b-days + Mom’s Day.
I know with all the floods they are having in MO and KY, OH, MS it remains drier than usual here in Kansas. But all the flowers are new green is up and going strong. It will be a pretty drive for them unless the weather changes. Like it always does here ;)
still a nice drive
night all – be well
op! they say a chance of thunderstorms tomorrow, :: I always love me a spring storm :) mebbe just me
she and one of the k’s had just arrived at their summer works down in cortez co friday. ks in springtime is gorgeous — as long as the weather cooperates. last year when they were driving home from chicago back to ks and then home to greeley, i got a phone call from steph asking if there was any tornado warnings for their location. made my heart skip a few beats when i found there was… thankfully everything passed north of them
the reality is that tornadoes are not that common
sure take precautions, sure enjoy the dynamics, but they aren’t that common
both the k’s are native ks so they know what to watch for and what to do. steph loves living in the midwest — tonight they are staying less than 30 miles from where my dad grew up… guess the midwest gene skipped a generation
they were saying the tornadoes across the south were the worst in AL since 1974 … so once or twice in a lifetime kind of thing, we had one when I lived in WV. Incidentally the day before the Royal weddin of C+D, ’81 I think. Jumped the Ohio river that one did. we lost a couple roofs off outbuildings. Uncommon to say the least.
I love it. I think the random weather makes for good music! hahaha
can’t quite explain it.
i remember there was a buncha bad ones in the 70′s… zanesville ohio is one that comes to mind from that era
nothing like cruising down the freeway listening to riders on the storm as the wind howls outside the car
I’m pulling down the shingle and I’ll say g’nite
about time for me to head out myself. thanks for letting me hang out with ya tonight
Hah! you missed it, I used your tune the other day.
What?? #100 just waiting to be grabbed?
sorry i missed ya busted – thanks for the g’thud
happy lucky 100 mauimom!!!
hey ruffian :)
