First Dupree's Diamond Blues in 8 years since 1969
-Anonymous


jerry fucks up on casey jones and doesn't deliver the "lady in red" line right away so they end up jamming it out for a good long while before finally coming back to that part of the song...this is a case where jerry's fuck up results in one of the best casey jones you will ever hear!!

'77 escapes me. Not that I haven't heard some great high points but it just doesn't compare w a lot of other eras. #1 Keith is WAY too low in the mix. Was it because he was messing up and they were turning him down? I don't know, but he is not in the mix where he was in 72-73-74. #2 the bass drum mike is WAY to high in them mix. AND Billy & Mickey get stuck on this same beat for all the uptempo songs.
Yeah May 77 has some good shows and this Oct 77 one is a pretty good but I'd rather hear 69-74 or 79-86. Just my humble opinion...

Rich, Bobby mentions skid row on the 7/26/72 show before Mexicali Blues I believe.

I usually don't comment on these shows because it seems that everyone just yells at you and tells you that you're wrong.

That being said, this is the absolute best Fire on the Mountain I have ever heard. My god, download the show just for the Scarlet>Fire. Not to mention a stellar Casey Jones and an incredible second set that gave me an eargasm.

Keith stomps Casey Jones. And to think they say he was washed up by the end of 77..
-Grate1 (03/30/2015)


I agree with Mark (above) about Keith. He is always mixed really low on most every show after the break. But when you do hear him he is brilliant, all the way to the end in '79! I can never detect anything about his playing that they should have complained about, ever. He is always absolutely fantastic, and it is proven here on Casey Jones. Wonderful Keith. I also agree about the drums after the break. A lot of plodding, dull, straight beats, but not always...
