Me too. Thing is she doesn't have a leg to stand on, covers qualify as fair use, and by disputing deletion ZFT will have no leg to stand on.

Dad's been having serious PC issues. We lost everything on his Vista. Again.

took me a week but finally finished listening to
1975 10 23 Boston, MA which is an excellent sounds-like-you-are-there recording, but Frank seems to be having an off night. He's just fooling around wit the guitar like it's out of tune or the pedal gizmos won't work. Or something. One of the best Any Downers versions I've ever heard. Because it's long and dramatic and Frank and Napoleon are making fun by acting like the slurred speech and dull attitudes of the stumblers, on downers. Funny.
We got a new late'81 show last week, So today put on that and cued up the next reportedly good sounding tape we have in that run to compare,
1981 11 03 L Philly, PA 87 minutes
1981 11 06 Hartford, CT 115 minutes

things are fine here. Ron Paul is a kind of nut. That pictuure in Lawrence, KS, at the zforum , that very hall I've been in many times. Holds 2000 people. Saw Ralph Nader there, he filled it in 2000. :lol:

the structure of zappateers is fluid and decentralized. She can't touch it.
But it's a good time to be IT lawyers.

Lifeliner helicopter landed on nearby grass patch. Excitement galore. Lots of people walking their dogs all of a sudden.

Will be going to the dentist in two hours. Oh dear.

1981 11 03 L Philly, PA 87 minutes; short show, has a few decent solos, Black Napkins, Easy Meat; but the ending 10+ minute Black Page is the single stellar performance/improv here
1981 11 06 Hartford, CT 115 minute: overall very good show but the recording needs a lot of bass and the treble cut way back; the highlights are more frequent on this noght: Zoot Allures, Pound For a Brown, Sinister Footwear, Stecie's Spanking, Drowning Witch are all structured and out there and great. whew!

last night listened to 1980 04 03 Stanford, CA; it sounds like the '80's full of that mid-rangey keyboard sound and you have to turn the bass DOWN on this one as it sounds like the mic could only handle mid to upper ranges, so the bass clips and overpowers if you don't turn it down. Often a trick to tune the sound in so the playback sounds close to 'dry' or 'real'. This one you can get it to sound decent and is a 141 minute show... Frank sounds happy to be touring again and this is near the beginning of the YAWYI tour where they played the whole record, almost. And then some.

today I listen to
1974 11 27 St Paul, a 134 minute soundboard recording. Lots of clear rich tones. Much of the drums are buried in the abundance of other instruments in the mix... a pleasure to listen to though. They're so good, Village of the Sun sounds like a cartoon.. There's a 31:37 track labeled 'improvisations' that I'll try to breakdown:
- 01:15 Frank's intro to George Duke improv
01:15 - 02:40: George Duke improv
02:40 - 04:05: George and Frank talk amidst keyboard, about Frank who is very particular
04:05 - 05:50: Frank on injecting heperin into Pres Nixon w keybd vamp
05:50 - 7:00: George on Marty's dog and solo
07:01 - 09:00: full band improv, Nappy singing with Duke back-and-forth, about a dog, ending with two other singers (Birdlegs Youman?) again back and forth with, 'come here fido' and 'smell my beard'
09:00 - 09:40: at first band is quieter and strains of the theme to star trek are heard, then Frank starts a story
09:40 - 11:00: Frank tells a story about a dog in Memphis, TN with the star trek theme by Duke
11:00 - 13:00 music veers off into abstract, polyrythms set things going not far from the grateful dead, Frank takes a bar or three to solo
13:00 - 17:05: Napoleon takes a long sax solo; 14:00 - he adds echo to it, 15:20 takes it off the echo but plays with a pedal? 16:40 then back to the echo
17:05 - 19:40: Chester Thompson drumsolo, 18:24 trades licks with Ruth
19:40 - 24:20: Frank starts a soft guitar solo with a soft vamp band, 21:30 Frank gets louder, 22:30 frank races with the drummer some, 23:35 Frank's in bright-note land
24:20 - 28:15: full band joins in til it sounds like something possibly related to Montana.
28:15 - 29:40 Frank interrupts, "Oh, anyway, Ruth Underwood on percussion-..." and tells the names of the bandmembers in the rest of the band, as they jam out to what sounds more like San Ber'dino.
29:40 - 30:05: audience
30:05 - 30:35: Frank plugs in, thanks the audience and says, "The name of this song is 'Oh No, I Don't Believe It'. 30:55 introduces 'Birdlegs' Youman. Then, "So with that introduction, you better not make any mistakes in this one"
:drool:.
I hope to be better tomorrow

yesterday I met somebody, by chance, at a st patty's day party with dear friends. An Afghanistan war vet who has had to ask more questions and had more reasons shown to him than he cares to remember about why war is just wrong. He's been on tv shows, on FOX that he said he'd never go back to, spent time with journalists, the best really. Still he's frustrated how the truth hasn't got out to most people.
Smedley Butler said a long time ago, 'War is a racket.'

I still can't log onto the chat over at zappateers and haven't figured out the best way to tell them. I'm sure haven't found the right java synchron or whatever. But joining in spirit here in the sympathetic part of kansas, I'm listening to the wonderful sounding tape recorded from
1975 10 24 Providence, Rhode Island, incl a number of great versions: Black Napkins, Chunga's Revenge, Zoot Allures and a tasty apostrophe/Duke of Prunes at the end.
RIP Andre Lewis

Spent over two hours on the phone with one of my best friends. He had a nasty stench in his house, and while I was on the phone with him he looked for the cause and found a mouse ate his way into his sofa, where he lived and had a nest, and it passed away a few days ago.

My niece found an article about a second-cousin of ours who was murdered in 1969 (he was 15). It went unsolved until last year, when one of the guys involved finally spilled the beans. Turns out he was murdered because he was flirting with someone else's girlfriend at a dance. The guys who did it were a couple years older, and are now in their sixties.

The article's about what the parents have gone through for the last 42 years. Now that their son's murder has finally been solved, they still can't let go...

Forum problem caused by host (sql server rights) fortenately they managed. Not only we had problems, that make it easier to convince them that it is NOT our problem.

Now why does that remind me of the photos my sister took of Romania? (the one with the electricity posts that look like spaghetti)

BBP is a little sick today. I think she underestimated the first days of spring. Sunny but cold.

And now she's even older, and now she's even older, and now she's even older...

Still down and out. Barely slept at night, slipped in and out of nightmares.
Dad bought nasal spray for me to diminish swelling of the mucus glands. Discovered the label says "best before 2010".
