    How exciting a new album with John..I hope Justin is doing well, I can’t wait to see all you guys again, feels like forever, but thanks to you, Vanessa and crew I have something to look forward to every Saturday night. Some of the old songs bring back a lot of good memories, and you sound terrific. “Rock Me Baby” was great and I always loved Izze’s Lullaby.
    Take care and I hope you are all doing well.
    Stay Safe

    I’ll testify! Dog exists! A dog’s love is unconditional beyond human understanding.

    Heavy stuff, guys.

    @carey georgas
    Cool.. What I was saying is that other than Jorma covering the Rev, I can’t recall many songs citing so specifically about God and Jesus. I always liked Spirit in the Sky.

    Gotcha. I didn’t catch the time reference. I just have a thing about hearing God’s world depicted as barren in any context. Devoid of certain moral traits at times perhaps, but never barren.

    I was speaking about music in the 70s being a bit barren of God and truth. I separated some of the ideas w diff paragraphs

    Not sure why Black Sabbath was called out specifically on this point. Many of their lyrics had a fairly prominent conventional religious theme. Satan laughed when he knew the war pigs were about to join his ranks. That’s just one of several examples. But this isn’t a religious or a Black Sabbath site so i won’t push the point any further.

    C’mon, Tom. How can the landscape be God barren when God is everywhere? You don’t think His hand is all over this National calamity? He is giving every one of His children (and I’m not talkin’ just “believers”) an opportunity to respond with the kind of action He sent his Son to instruct and exemplify. The choice is ours. Free will, brother. Peace.

    I listened to some Burgers while working out after work yesterday. Great stuff. Sammy Piazza’s drum work on Highway Song was tremendous. A lot more than keeping a beat, pretty intricate licks.

    I too, really enjoyed the last three songs.

    Nice show the other night… Thanks. There was one tune on #8 #8 #8 where you really seemed to step up your vocal presentation. I should have made a note…

    Now even if you run over your entire bit, all your songs of yours and others and the Quarantine shows go on till you are 97, would you ever pull out Sweet Hawaiian Sunshine? In the mid and late 70s, putting the album on the stereo at weekend parties, like at 1:30 in the morning and hearing it was always a gas.

    More importantly you bringing in the name Jesus through the Rev Gary Davis tunes to an otherwise God barren landscape was a gift. I presume it was not your intention but you did many a youth a solid…Maybe kept some away from drinking bad Black Sabbath KoolAid or worse.

    Did you already do another Man Done Gone? Played it this morning. Thanks for that quintessential 3 part lick, F shape B and G string 3rd and 4th fret, full A chord then back to the E min. lick ..

    When George was dying you can hear him call for his mother who had died a few years back… If there is anything after here for the children of Zion, children of the earth maybe his Mom was granted a grace by God too be with her son as he was dying.

    Remarkable the power and effect of one man’s deed and the repercussions…. Every good deed we do spreads out too.

    Thanks for setting an example Jorma these days….Great family man who loves his wife and children, a good friend to many I am sure and a good boss and host.

    Tell Brother Hurl to call the album, Coffee w Hurl and Jorma… Just kidding but he does take great pleasure is serving/SERVING coffee to the “campers”.

    Another great show on Saturday! Thanks JK and the FPR crew. Great to hear about plans for a Hurl/Jorma album. Next up after that should be one with Myron.

    Jorma, I was reading a magazine article that Hagerty Collector Car Ins. sends out. Reading the article about this guy driving his Corvette near Athens Ohio..He says that he drives Route 78 and Route 555 and describes it as some of the best driving roads he has driven..Of course I thought of you being a bike rider and in that area. Is that some of the roads you enjoy too?..Hope you are well… I have been enjoying all 9 Sat. nights..Thanks..

      Hey Richard… I just rode those roads on my bike the other day and yes… they are that awesome. We try to take full advantage of the paved landscape. I’m not an off road rider. Good times.

    An 8 hour day !!! Must be a double album. Can’t wait

    “I held my nose I closed my eyes…I took a drink.”

    Thanks for bringing up that fond memory.

    Can’t wait for the Jorma and John CD! I still think Jack should accompany you guys.

    Are you going to try and give Highway song a go?! The harmony with you and crosby on that song was exquisite – hard to duplicate that. And Papa John’s fiddle would be sorely missing, but I’d settle for a solo, ar duo version.

    If I’m not mistaken, you have not produced many songs with other people harmonizing with you. Wonder why that is?

    Hi Jorma,

    Wow #9. Thank you for the Saturday night shows. After re-reading your book, we look forward, more than ever to these evenings, from “This Land’ sing-along, with John H covering Chimes, I Shall Be Released, Easy Rider, Watchtower, Myron songs, etc, great playing. Loved ‘Reenlistment Blues’ with Maggio, Merle Travis ‘Here To Eternity’ story.

    Many surprises, “Letter To The North Star” Track 3 on Quah (thanks Mickey Hart), “Song For The High Mountain” 79 album, thanks Mr. Karp, front-row guitar lessons, ‘Rock-Me-Baby’ Birthday shout-out to friends like Mike Scot… or the acoustic version of “Song From The Stainless Cymbal”, closing song from Hoppkorv, a favorite of many.

    I have one request/suggestion, a song you have not performed yet in quarantine “Follow the Drinking Gourd”, you played it back in 1964? There is a version on “Land Of Heroes” PS. Thanks also for breaking out ‘Land of Heroes” title-track.

    Best of luck to you and John with Justin recording the new project. Hope it includes the BD covers. Thanks Vanessa for all you do, and Izze for Justice painting. Be well.
