PF

On the Turning Away

David Gilmour IS definitely PF! He's the man. But I like car-guy Nick Mason in his traditional white shirt professionally working percussion. My favorite drummer. (The three lady backup singers seemed to be quite talented as well smiley).

Mark

So I've done this one what seems to be several hundred times here on this great thread. But I still love Mark and this song, so here we go again.

Jerry Miller

Jerry's no singer but he can play the snot out of a guitar. Originally with Moby Grape in the sixties (I remember), now with Eilen Jewell. If you get a chance to see the Eilen Jewell Band with Jerry, do it. You won't be disappointed.

The Eilen Jewell Band

Eilen's great. She's married to the drummer. He's great. The acoustic bass player's great. And then you have Jerry Miller on lead guitar. We already know he's fantastic. What's not to love?

Annie and I started the evening at the bar at Bill's tonight. Then friends Valerie and Frank came in with Valerie's father Norman. It's Norman's 86th birthday and they asked us to join them at a table in the lounge area to celebrate his birthday. Of course we accepted. I sat next to Norman and we talked. He's a Korean War Army vet. Paratrooper. Made two jumps in Korea. Survived the Frozen Chosin campaign/debacle. I was honored to talk with him, although details about the ordeal were not forthcoming. He just said he remembered the cold conditions. I suspect he remembers a lot more than that but didn't want to talk about it. I was also glad I knew a bit about the geo-political history of the era, and I could talk to him about it. He appreciated that. Anyway, it was a very interesting evening.

Now Annie and I are home happily sipping Bordeaux and listening to Liquid Mind on Pandora ...and thanking Norman and all the others for their Service so we can appreciate these simple luxuries that we normally take for granted.

I listen to a variety of stuff, but this is the 3rd time 'Drop it like it's hot' has played on Pandora in the past 25 minutes.  WTF.

Taj Mahal

This great bluesman is playing at Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington, CT, tonight. JE is one of our favorite SoNE vineyards. We saw Taj Mahal there a few years ago at one of their Sunday night summer concerts. Great performance. We chose not to go this time. But instead, we have a nice fire in the firepit, we're enjoying a few sips of wine (smiley), and listening to Taj Mahal on Pandora. Small consolation, but fun anyway. And we don't have to drive an hour home after a couple bottles of JE's best.

SRV - Texas Flood El Mocambo

So we segued from Taj Mahal to Lester Young (great 50's era smooth jazz sax music) to Stevie Ray Vaughn. Texas Flood at the El Mocambo 1983 in Toronto is the high-water mark for me when it comes to blues and blues guitar performance. Nothing better ... well, in my opinion anyway. smiley

The whole El Mocambo show was tight.  I got to see SRV 3 times, 1986x2 and 1989x1.  Those cats could definitely play.

In reply to AngryCorvair :

Lucky man you are. I have several regrets in my life. One is not having seen SRV live. (Pretty trivial, all things considered, I guess ... but I really wish I'd seen him live. And I wish I'd seen races at Bridgehampton and Riverside).

The bugs of late summer in SoNE.

It's a spectacular cacophony that I look forward to every year. Usually starts sometime in early August and lasts through the first frost. It's probably similar to this in other parts of the country, and I really love the sound. I'm sitting on my deck on an exceptionally warm, humid early September evening and I'm really enjoying it.

A Little Aardvark Never Hurt Anyone

Don Racine and son Dennis raced their Mini Coopers at Lime Rock this past weekend. This is Don with his legendary early fifties California special called the Aardvark at Laguna Seca in 2012. Great piece of driving with such a tiny-engined car. But I can't figure out the damned shift pattern. Only been to Laguna Seca once, but from a spectator's perspective, it's just OK. I spent most of my time at the Corkscrew. Seriously, where else is there to go? On the other hand, Lime Rock is a spectator's dream.

History

(As a post script, I saw Don race the Aardvark numerous times at Coronado).
