  1. Haynes, Zanes, Zantz Can't Dance! I meant Zanes and the "rolling orgy" bus incident
  2. According to Warren Haynes's book, there are reasons why Stan wouldn't have been welcome in the Blue Stingrays project. That said, I'm thrilled to hear Stan on drums again!
  3. Hey, thanks again for posting this, I've enjoyed listening to it all day today while working. Its funny how I might have complained if I had been at that show that there were no setlist surprises, but streaming it six years later is a total blast. I totally agree with the group that the live shots of people dancing in their living rooms isn't a bonus and its a relief every time the image cuts back to the band in the full shot. That said, I found myself touched to see the joy on people's faces to be "at a show" again. I went to more than 40 Heartbreakers shows from 1991-2014 and every one filled me with such excitement and positive vibes. My last two shows were Mudcrutch in SF and Oakland in 2016 and I was out of the country when they came through the Bay Area in 2017. Hope everyone is healthy and well!
  4. I'm listening to it through headphones right now and the sound is fantastic. I think I prefer this video to the Fenway Park show, which had really strange and severe camera angles
  5. Just came across this interesting clip of "Yer So Bad" that TP filmed for BBC in 1989. Beautiful guitar!
  6. Sorry about that. I'm on a MacBook Air that has a folder that's jammed with mp3s of TPHBS rare live tracks of various quality. During quarantine, I roll out of bed and go to work on this computer with some pretty good headphones. I'm finding tons of stuff I've downloaded but have not listened to. Its pretty neat
  7. Here's another one from 3/10/95 3-10 It Won't Be Wrong (Live At The Orpheum Theatre, Memphis, TN 5_30_95).flac
  8. Thanks for the memories, Mary Jane's Last Dance! I remember this tour and similar experiences fondly and vividly. I went to a show at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, CA with the Jayhawks opening. It was a Sunday night in April, and the morning of the concert, another show was announced for the same venue in June. Despite some rainfall, that 1995 concert in Mountain View was a thrilling show. It felt like it went on forever, in a good way. "Love is a Long Road" kicked things off, followed by "You Don't Know How It Feels" ... "I woke up in between...a mattress and a limousine," Tom sang, as a contact high from clouds of pot smoke intoxicated my neighbors on the Shoreline's lawn seats. "Time To Move On," "Wildflowers," "Learning To Fly," "The Waiting," and a gorgeous cover of the Byrds' "It Won't Be Wrong" were all sprinkled in to the acoustic set A friend of mine drove from Los Angeles to the Bay Area to go to the show with me. A few months later, I went to LA to meet the same friend to go to the Heartbreakers' first concert at the Hollywood Bowl on a Friday night, with Taj Mahal opening. Again, it was magical. I got back to the Bay Area late Monday night. Went back to work on Tuesday morning, and got so excited telling my coworkers about the show at the Bowl, I decided to drive back to the Shoreline that night to do it all over again. I was about 25, driving spontaneously to a Heartbreakers concert felt like I was absolutely headed in the right direction in life that night. That second Shoreline show provided all kinds of sweet treats. During the acoustic set, Tom replaced "Time To Move On" with the first public performance of "California". The extended encore opened with "Breakdown/Hit the Road, Jack" before TP ripped through "Around and Around" and "Bright Lights, Big City", "Honey Bee", "American Girl', and, finally, "Alright For Now"—the only time I heard that beautiful lullabye in more than 40 Heartbreakers concerts between 1991-2014. 3-10 It Won't Be Wrong (Live At The Orpheum Theatre, Memphis, TN 5_30_95).flac
  9. I came across this 1985 show on YouTube, also at Jones Beach, NY. It has the original live version "Dogs on the Run" (not on Pack Up the Plantation) and ts pretty great.
  10. Exciting to see footage for the 2005 tour. I saw both shows at the Berkeley Greek Theatre and they were two of the most memorable shows for me form the later years. One reason was the fantastic screen of video windows behind the band. TP said he thought of the design while watching a movie that had the title credits sequenced designed by the great Saul Bass. I just watched Hitchcock's VERTIGO last night and was thinking about the 2005 set during the credits. Another reason I loved the 2005 shows were setlist rarities. Those were the only times I heard "It'll All Work Out" and "Crawling Back To You" live. There was also a cover of Chuck Berry's "Too Much Monkey Business" and Little Richard's "Rip It Up". And "Melinda" was played every show—my only chance to hear that one live. The next year they came and played 3 nights at the Greek during the 30th anniversary tour. 5 shows over two summers, all at a venue I could drive home from without having to go through a single stoplight.
  11. Thanks for posting. My first 4 Heartbreakers concerts were from this tour in November 1991. Just unforgettable bliss. Neat to see this time capsule, with the extra song selections, etc. Will revisit this clip a lot...sound is very good
  12. I was just watching a fan recording of a 2017 tour show and noticed TP casually tosses his harmonica from the "Walls" solo into the audience. Have to imagine this would be a huge thrill to catch and keep. Does anyone who posts here know anyone who got one? Would love to hear the story!
  13. I love Network! What a movie. Hey, I think I posted this on this board awhile back but I got to interview Benmont last year and it was such a thrill! http://www.diablomag.com/D-blog/Petes-Popcorn-Picks/July-2019/Exclusive-Interview-The-Freewheelin-Benmont-Tench/
  14. Willeford's final four books are about a Miami police detective named Hoke Mosely and they are all terrific: Miami Blues, New Hope For The Dead, Sideswipe, The Way We Die Now. I think his greatest fiction book is The Burnt Orange Heresy, which was recently filmed with Mick Jagger in a key role. The movie is good but the book is fantastic. Funny and very dark. He wrote an autobiography about having to live on the road at age 12 during the Great Depression and it may be my favorite-ever book: I Was Looking For A Street.
  15. I'm so sorry to hear of John Prine's passing. He was one of my very favorites, right up there with TP. I saw John many times in concert, have all his records on vinyl, etc. Such unique voice, such an amazing writer, such a wonderful, kind man. One of a kind. Howie Epstein was a huge part of Prine's success in the early 1990s, when JP was having a hard time getting heard by anyone beyond his group of faithful fans. Howie produced The Missing Years, a stunning record that won a Grammy and put Prine back on the musical map. The Heartbreakers are all over the record and its a masterpiece. Howie also produced the follow-up Lost Dogs and Mixed Blessings, which is an underrated gem, and yielded what might be Prine's best-ever track, "Lake Marie". It's Bob Dylan's favorite at least. So, thanks Howie, for helping John Prine create some of his most memorable music. Lake Marie
