Winter’s chilly fingers are still wrapped around us up here, but there was blue skies as we pulled into Plymouth, and the Flying Monkey.

Back at the yard behind the Monkey… it was still train time.

    Hey Jorma- I was I the third row last night. It was an honor to see you and hear the great music. I remember seeing you at the Capitol Theater in Passaic NJ in the late 70’s. You and Jack are having quite a run!

    Any chance we saw the bus heading north on the New Jersey turnpike this morning, between say 8 and 9:30am? My husband pointed out a tour bus and jokingly said “it’s hot tuna’s bus”…….coincidence or fact? We were traveling south…..seeing signs of spring in Maryland, but may have snow tomorrow!

    Nope Susan… not a chance. Coming from New Hampshire to Hartford in the snow. Just got in.

    There’s no place like home.
    Any lollipop kids?

    I have a CD – Tuna in Tokyo ,I believe.
    There’s the reference , by a certain musician about the rage sweeping Austraila , something about tossing the lollipop kids.
    Probably , enough said.

    Listened to Pair Dice found yesterday.
    Always wondered about inspiration for Urban moon
    Sounds like a vignette from Fillmore district or Mercado

    Hey, Tim. I was at a couple of those shows at the old Capitol in Passaic. Nov. ’76 (first time I saw them) and in Nov. ’77, if memory serves. Had 4th row seats for Tuna in May, ’78, but, as we know, that turned out to be a “Jorma” show.

    Right You are:
    “Folsom Prison Blues”

    Well I hear that train a comin’ she’s a rollin’ on around the bend
    I ain’t seen the sunshine since I don’t know when
    But I’m stuck in Folsom Prison oh the time keeps draggin’ on
    And that train keeps a rollin’ on down to San Antone

    Well now I bet there’s rich folks eatin’ in a fancy dinin’ car
    I bet they’re drinkin’ coffee chewin’ on big cigars
    But I know I had it comin’ now I know I can’t be free
    And that train keeps a movin’ Lord that’s what tortures me
    Tell ’em guitar

    Well when I was just a baby my mama told me son
    Always be a good boy don’t you mess around with guns
    But I shot a man in Reno stood there and watched him die
    Now when I hear that whistle blowin’ oh I hang my head and I cry

    Well if they’d free me from this prison if that railroad train was mine
    Bet I’d move it on just a little bit farther down the line
    Away from Folsom Prison that’s where I want to stay where I got to stay now
    And then I’d let that lonesome whistle let that whistle blow all my blues away
    Tell ’em son

    I always credited Mose Allison with Parchman Farm , Young Man blues( who at Leeds), and Johnny Rivers seventh son, maybe we’ll have to employ a secret agent man to get to bottom of this .
    I think they could use an infusion of new Secret Agent men in the District.

    You can also hear Parchman Farm on Blue cheers Eruptis album.
    It’s great to throw that album into a CD rotation for a sedate outside summer dinner party,
    The feedback on Summertime Blues alleays gets the queried, who is that group.
    Never saw Blue Cheer , but I’ve heard that they would get plaster falling of ceiling in Fillmore east.

    Ah the good ol’ Capitol Theater in Passaic, NJ (unfortunately now a used car lot). Some great shows there…Grateful Dead, Charlie Daniels, Outlaws, New Riders, CSN,,,but my favorite was May 20, 1978 solo acoustic Jorma that was billed as Hot Tuna. An amazing night of 30 songs from Keep your Lamps to Jelly Roll Blues to Mann’s Fate that went on to the wee hours of the night…or it seemed that way. Good Times !!

    Ah yes, Dr. Joe. May I take it back even further to April 8, 1971 when Papa John Creach added his iconic style to all those “Burgers” favorites. A time long gone, but not forgotten. Classic Hot Tuna!

    The old Capitol Theater had no parking. We pulled in from New York in 1976 going to a HT show and parked down the block from the theater. We were smoking a doobie, the smoke filled car looked like something out of a Cheech & Chong movie. A police car pulls up with 4 bulls inside. I swallowed the evidence and made it to the show. Luckily they didn’t find the blotter in my wallet. Good times indeed!
