Interesting that the Dead rehearsed “Attics of My Life” before their June 1976 comeback tour, because the song didn’t make it into any of their setlists in that era. They didn’t play “Attics” in public again until more than a decade later (10/9/89)!

BROKEDOWN PALACE

I had the life-changing experience of co-producing Might As Well: The Persuasions Sing Grateful Dead with lead singer Jerry Lawson. For this song, we had the wonderful Vince Welnick on piano, and Persuasions bass singer Jim Hayes takes the lead. Here’s my studio diary, with tons of photos and links to other articles about the project.

“Brokedown Palace” is a remote recording masterminded by Gavin Tabone, the director of the Barton Hills Choir (a grade school in Austin, Texas). Keyboardist Jeff Chimenti (of Ratdog and Dead & Company fame) is one of the participants, and I played acoustic guitar (but that’s Gavin at the start of the song). Here is the video. Enjoy!

BIRD SONG

Two days after Jerry Garcia died, our friends at Bill Graham Presents opened the Fillmore Auditorium and filled the place with recordings of Jerry’s music while we gathered to grieve. I brought a recording device and collected some stories, some of which are included in this week’s broadcast. I’ll play the August 13 memorial in program #1665.

MORNING DEW

That’s it for 9/9/91. We heard the encore in last week’s program (in order to make things fit into the hour-long format).

The new release in the Bear’s Sonic Journals series is right up my alley! Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen were right up there with the Grateful Dead and Asleep at the Wheel as role models for me and my musical mates in the early ’70s. Bear recorded them at The Family Dog in March of 1970, and these tapes and performances are brilliant!
