Hey, glad to help. Seriously.
One day not too long ago, somebody (wish I could remember whom) turned ME on to the site, so the least I could do was to "pass it on"* to other kind souls...
...Folks such as yourself and the rest of my brothers and sisters here at the good ol' JA Forum...
For the benefit of all humanity in posterity do ordain and establish this United Altered States Of Airplaneica!!!

Heard a great Airplane/Dead show from Toronto August, 1967. Great sound quality. Preliminary analysis of them is very uneven, w/some exceptions. Baxter's rehearsals sound good. Problem is finding performance and recording quality that stands. Performances generally do, I've noticed. However, sound is inconsistent.

I'm skipping right now. A few early songs per show. Right now listening to early Neil w/Crazy Horse from their Spring, 1970 shows.

First time I saw Neil was in Milwaukee, early January, 1973 touring w/the Stray Gators and doing HARVEST material. FIRST show ever for me, and the first gig for the band on that star-crossed tour. I didn't know that it wasn't going to be w/Crazy Horse. I knew little about except for the Springfield pop stuff that had hit the AM radio (not much) and EVERYBODY KNOWS THIS IS NOWHERE.

But I already knew one indespensible fact as I later left the show (rock solid excellent show-tour literally degenerated in a Hotel there later that night I guess). Neil MISSED Danny Whitten. Much is made of the guitar relationship w/ Stills. I won't deny their fiery excellence. Still, having seen the sluggish, very heavy Frank Stampedro Horse a number of times, Whitten just had the correct sensitive rhythem chops and harmonies. The Horse was lighter on their feet with him w/ a choppy and slightly funky feel.

Danny had O.Ded a month before. Neil had tried to cut him into the Gators for the tour, but he was so far gone during rehearsals that he couldn't hack it. :cry:

Dude, our politics wouldn't mix, but YOU JUST GET IT when it comes to the vibe. You haven't missed a beat.

Wha?

I am totally apolitical when it comes to politics.
Call me "Anarchist", if anything...

Basically, I believe in, and speak out and stand up for:

PEACE

LOVE

FREEDOM

SOCIAL JUSTICE

Life, Liberty, Pursuit Of Happiness and all that...



Meanwhile, I loathe, condemn, and speak out against:

HATE

WAR

VIOLENCE

Corporate rape of the Earth's environment

Materialism

Sexism

Colonialism, imperialism, patriarchy and all other forms of oppression.

So yeah... WOULD we not get along?

Let's just say that I'd be wandering away from the campfire political polemics at the Rainbow Festival as they turned in this direction, nor will you find me leading (nor following)any anti-WTO demonstrations.

Nonetheless, my political views don't tarnish whatsoever my unabashed admiration for your musical insights and knowledge. Moreover, I remain forever in your debt for sugarmegs.

I love debating politics. But I won't here. Too much room for misunderstanding. In fact, I'm even sorry already for my initial comment. :(
