    Late because I just looked today. Three Steve Mann albums on Apple Music. Ash Grove performance album plus one album with Janis singing on two cuts.

    Hi Jorma,
    First, thanks a lot for these quarantine concerts, great stuff and well received on this end.

    I received an email from FPR promoting the concert for tomorrow night, being billed as Quarantine Vault Concert #9. Is that an error or did I somehow miss a QV concert after the Hubby Jenkins and Magic Dick QV #7.

    It’s the german in me, lol.

    Thanks again, and best wishes to the whole gang at FPR,

  3. Hey Jorma,
    Ian Buchanan taught me “Cocaine Blues” in 1978. Next time you’re in Woodstock, NY, I’d be happy to teach it to you!!! That’ll take about 12 minutes.

    I just found out Bob Dylan’s drummer for when he first burst on to the electric scene lived in my neighborhood in Rockland County New York…I remember friends who told me Bob Gregg was friends with their parents and that he was a musician but that was it…It wasn’t until today when I was having a phone conversation with a friend who lived two houses away from Gregg that I looked him up and found out he was really big time and was Dylan’s drummer in 64 & 65…Our parents were square professionals in the 1960’s so there was a communication gap that wasn’t bridged until today…Wow, just wow…My friend who I was talking to said his father met Dylan at Gregg’s house in what had to be 65…It’s a mind bender to me that such a particularly rich little piece of rock n roll history was tucked in our sleepy wooded country neighborhood and no one knew…

    When I got the tip on the chat feed a couple of weeks ago, I finally realized the full meaning of the relative minor in a key. Up until now, I was using piano keys in my head imagining the scales. It helped, but I was now able to see how that was also somewhat limiting. After the tip and a little subsequent study, the whole tone, semi-tone nature of a scale takes away the limitations of just imagining notes as where they are in relation to middle c on the piano. The secrets of the neck are beginning to unlock for me. That’s what they call a breakthrough, right? It’s got me fired up. Courtesy of Fur Peace Ranch. And all that for free, plus the music, plus the entertaining badinage and the camaraderie. Does it get any better than that? Reckon I’ll stay tuned and find out.

    Just listened to your interview with guy from NE on a zoom thing. Great interview! Following you since 1980 and some new stories and insights I had not heard before. Thanks! I found link via Dylan fan site “Expecting Rain.” Enjoyed the mention of Bark album. You were kind enough to sign my copy in Richmond a few years back as I already had sigs by Grace, Jack, Spencer, and Marty (although he wasn’t on that album).

    Seriously wonderful quarantine show. That Strat…. that’s a Pete Townsend EC Strat!! Looking forward to hearing more of that puppy. I’m curious how the piezo sounds. What a great option.

    @John B

    I’m sure your greeting is well received John, but I believe the Kaukonens celebrate Passavoer.

    Yeah, In The Kingdom. Jerusalem lies within, I’m told. That song brings back memories. Love of my young adult life. Still trying to come down off my cross. Hurlbut! will be cry from the rafters when he gets his props. Heart of a lion. Tied in with the Great Spiriat youse two.

    Might check out Richie Furays new double album .
    Live at Troubador,Superlative .
    His tickets sold out FPR , in moments when he played .
    Last time I saw him was in balcony of “Howard Steins -Capitol theatre “, they’re were peyote buttons on the balcony rail ,
    In those days they were washed down with Anhauser Busch’s longneck.
    Poco was tough to beat live.

    That’s Mann, as in Steve Mann. Live at the Ash Grove is on you tube. Its fabulous. And Jorma, Manns Fate is a gem.

    Loved the Ice Age ending!

    Another great show. Have watched every one. In backpacking parlance, a “through hiker”. Loved the discussion about Man. Hope you’re able to wind your way up to the Madison area as there’s several nice outside venues and a stronghold of fans. Thanks for helping pull us through this last year. It’s meant a lot to get lost in the show every week.

    Happy Easter
    Reminds one of Rascals song ,It’s a beautiful morning ,or Rogers and Hammerstein Oh what a beautiful morning .Perhaps John with his prescient sense of the timely song selection could coax a “Badge “,out of that EC ,strat.
    Or maybe a twist on EC/Vans “Stand and Deliver”?

    Great show. “In the Kingdom” was the penultimate song. Peace!
