HELL IN A BUCKET

Reason and Rhyme is the latest full CD of the Robert Hunter-Jim Lauderdale collaboration, and I’ll say again that Hunter, who just turned 70, is doing amazing work these days. As Jim would say, “I don’t like this CD. I LOVE it!” Before that, one of the last Hunter-Garcia compositions, “Days Between”; this one was a studio rehearsal from the 1999 boxed set So Many Roads (1965-1995).

First time I heard this Furthur recording, when the band slowed down the ride coming out of “Deal” I thought it sounded like the groove the Grateful Dead jammed on in those monumental performances of “That’s It for the Other One” in 1969 – and just as I thought that thought, the band rolled right into “The Other One”!

Furthur 6/3/11 is available on CD and via download. Special thanks to gnomesandhobbits.com for getting the music to me so I can get it to you.

Special thanks to Rockmitzvah
