You’re walking along the road in Great Barrington, thinking about breakfast and here’s this beauty in a parking lot. Nice… very nice!

Then, it’s on to Infinity… so to speak.

Yes… Infinity does have a main entrance, and this is it.

This is one of the best music venues of all time… right up there with the Fur Peace Station, of course!

This is one heck of a building for a venue!

The above is the back side of the building… when you walk in the front into the concert hall, this is what you see.

Beautiful stage set!

    Hard to tell if that is the Ford Talladega version (1969) whose design employed an elongated hood.

    I’m going to three shows this weekend and sorry to do this, but I hope you unwrap one or a couple of these… Song for the Stainless Cymbal, (can’t play it loud enough right now); I Wish You Would and Baaby What you want me to do, ( two hard rocking blues songs. You spewing desperate words and your guitar crying. Doesn’t get much better than that); and Sleep Song. Back in the day during the chaotic seven minute drive to drop off my very young school age kids at school, the first song on Americas Choice would be Sleep Song. One day my 2nd grader is running around the house singing “ship ain’t got no sail… ship ain’t got no sail”. Loved it! Well, whatever is played will be great, but that’s my wish list…beg list…Please!!! Only kidding! Thanks for letting me share.

    I fyou ever get an opportunity to ride you bike through the area of Infinity Hall in Norfolk, CT, a great experience, especially in the fall with the leaves changing. Great Barrington’s a great place we used to race horses at the track on the Fairgrounds that are now gone, we also raced them up Rt 7 at Green Mountain Park, Pownell, VT. Spent the Summer of Love at those two places coming of age at that time too! Girls loved horses and I was just cracking the seal on those adventures.

    Stainless what a great song. I’m hoping for a North Wind in Portchester but would truly love to hear Teresa do Turn My Life Down or Hey Frederick one day.

    I know it’s probably logistically difficult, but it would be awesome to have a few electric shows on the west coast one of these days:)

    @doug mlyn
    Yah Doug. I agree. I so wish I could be in NY for Hot Tuna Electric Trio. Acoustic shows coming to NoCal in the fall. But…My gluttonous mind wants it all!
    The set list from Great Barrington is spectacular Jorma!

    Rich- Song for the Stainless Cymbal… “PLAY AT FULL VOLUME FOR MAXIMUM EFFECT”. Love that! Jacks bass sounds like Frankenstein walking downhill. Is it possible we hung out together at the Wellmont Theater a few summers ago? Hit Single # 1, If this is love, I w

    ‘Play at full volume for maximum effect.” – I probably shouldn’t have took that advice literally – it was either that album or Ted Nugents song “Hibernation” that probably resulted in me acquiring hearing aids.

    I’ve only seen Hot Tuna in Chicago and Milwaukee.. actually considered taking a few days off when they play at Myrtle Beach.

    Don’t you miss those album covers? Looking at a CD cover just isn’ t the same.

    Jorma – quick weird question, does larry campbell have a brother howard? who used to own a music store in wappingers falls or hopewell junction ny? years ago howard knew his little brother had talent and would rise. and larry looks very familiar. I knew them in 1977-1980.

    If I owned a transporter, I would set the controls for the heart of the Tuna/Dave Mason gig right about now.

    Great show last night!
    The NJ PAC is a beautiful venue with fantastic acoustics and Electric trio is nice. While I really enjoy Larry Campbell and GE Smith, the trio ensures more Jorma solos. Tuna rocked!
    Was hoping Dave Mason would join for a jam and while Justin Guip doesn’t miss a beat, Skoota would add a few too.
    Regardless, fans got a potent double dose of Dave Mason and Tuna!
