Only "problem" was that Todd was on bass instead of mandolin....
I love those twin mando parts on that record...
and got me to realize how great and perfect the tunes on that first record were. Like they were the (best ever) versions of those particular numbers. Now, that could be because they were 'the first' and everything else is held up to that gold standard. But, I really think they were the pinnacle - Swing 51, Pneumonia, etc. Sort of like Dark Star on Live/Dead. They picked the absolute best for that record.
Your brain is doing better than mine, Arthur... ;)
Jon S. took a lot of pics that night, or at least I think he did.... ;)
They worked 'really hard' in the studio........night after night........cooking the stew, adding a little more spice here & there until it was up to David's level of perfection. I remember driving home as the sun was coming up numerous times, and was indeed lucky to have been a witness to this record being created. Just look at the careers these players have had since.......they were all young bucks feeling their oats, totally into the music......all growing together musically. Everyone knew it was something special while it was being created, the birth of New Acoustic music. Those live shows at the GAMH.......the audience was filled with other musicians and the intelligentsia of the Bay Area music community. It was a great era for acoustic music. So when it came time for this 25 year reunion concert I had to travel to Seattle to make the scene!
