This is pretty hot for an '80s show. Jerry takes a couple extra rounds of solo during Brown Eyed Women & Peggy O. That's enough for me, but the rest rawks too! :lol:

From :

Here's what Frank Streeter had to say regarding the transfer:
Dan Healy did the master cassette, Russell Levine and I did
the MC > reel transfers, and Jim Wise took my reels and digitized
them. The MC was made on a Sony TC-D5M. This cassette was played back on a D-5M and recorded onto a Sony TC-770 half-track reel at 3.75
ips, which is the sonic equivalent to a 7.5 ips quarter track recording.

With the upcoming Ratdog/Allman Brothers show, I decided to check out some of the latest Ratdog stuff. I d/l the Bonaroo show and was listening to it today. Wow, they have come along way! I am impressed and psyched, although I am sure it will be a bit different with Steve Kimmock. I d/l some more recent shows but have yet to burn them. Anyone caught any recent shows?

Slowly but surely...


Was Timothy Leary Right?

Are psychedelics good for you? It's such a hippie relic of a question that it's almost embarrassing to ask. But a quiet psychedelic renaissance is beginning at the highest levels of American science, including the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) and Harvard, which is conducting what is thought to be its first research into therapeutic uses of psychedelics (in this case, Ecstasy) since the university fired Timothy Leary in 1963. But should we be prying open the doors of perception again? Wasn't the whole thing a disaster the first time?

The answer to both questions is yes. The study of psychedelics in the '50s and '60s eventually devolved into the drug free-for-all of the '70s. But the new research is careful and promising. Last year two top journals, the Archives of General Psychiatry and the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, published papers showing clear benefits from the use of psychedelics to treat mental illness. Both were small studies, just 27 subjects total. But the Archives paper--whose lead author, Dr. Carlos Zarate Jr., is chief of the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Research Unit at NIMH--found "robust and rapid antidepressant effects" that remained for a week after depressed subjects were given ketamine (colloquial name: Special K or usually just k). In the other study, a team led by Dr. Francisco Moreno of the University of Arizona gave psilocybin (the merrymaking chemical in psychedelic mushrooms) to obsessive-compulsive-disorder patients, most of whom later showed "acute reductions in core OCD symptoms." Now researchers at Harvard are studying how Ecstasy might help alleviate anxiety disorders, and the Beckley Foundation, a British trust, has received approval to begin what will be the first human studies with LSD since the 1970s.

Psychedelics chemically alter the way your brain takes in information and may cause you to lose control of typical thought patterns. The theory motivating the recent research is that if your thoughts are depressed or obsessive, the drugs may reveal a path through them. For Leary and his circle--which influenced millions of Americans to experiment with drugs--psychedelics' seemingly boundless possibilities led to terrible recklessness. There's a jaw-dropping passage in last year's authoritative Leary biography by Robert Greenfield in which Leary and two friends ingest an astonishing 31 psilocybin pills in Leary's kitchen while his 13-year-old daughter has a pajama party upstairs. Stupefied, one of the friends climbs into the girl's bed and has to be pulled from the room.

A half-century later, scientists hope to unstitch psychedelic research from their forebears' excesses. Even as the Clinical Psychiatry paper trumpets psilocybin's potential for "powerful insights," it also urges caution. The paper suggests psilocybin only for severe OCD patients who have failed standard therapies and, as a last resort, may face brain surgery. Similarly, subjects can't take part in the Ecstasy trials unless their illness has continued after ordinary treatment.

Antidrug warriors may argue that the research will lend the drugs an aura of respectability, prompting a new round of recreational use. That's possible, but today we have no priestly Leary figure spewing vertiginous pro-drug proclamations. Instead we have a Leary for a less naive age: Richard Doblin. Also a Harvard guy--his Ph.D. is in public policy--Doblin founded the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) in 1986 to help scientists get funding and approval to study the drugs. (Doblin, 53, says he was too shy for the '60s, but he was inspired by the work of psychologist Stanislav Grof, who authored a 1975 book about promising LSD research--research that ended with antidrug crackdowns.) Doblin has painstakingly worked with intensely skeptical federal authorities to win necessary permissions. MAPS helped launch all four of the current Ecstasy studies, a process that took two decades. It's the antithesis of Leary's approach.

All drugs have benefits and risks, but in psychedelics we have been tempted to see only one or the other. Not anymore.

The Groove / The Who: Verizon Center DC, 3/8/07

Wow. I wasn't sure what to expect from two guys who are both over 60 years old, but as the song says, 'The Kids Are Alright'.

They put on a great performance last night including the requisite favorites and some early stuff as well as some new stuff. Ringo Starr's son played drums and Pete Towsend's brother was backing him up (as if he needed it).

I was totally impressed, although I have to admit, I am still a tad hungover from trying to hang with one of my oldest friends. Geez, that man can drink... :shock:

Great show last night at Warner Theatre. Covering Led Zeppelin's Livin' Lovin' Maid was no surprise, but when they pulled out The Band's "The Shape I'm In", it was somewhat of a shocker. I'm not familiar with Ron Holloway, but the man can play the sax.

Added bonus: I got to meet John Molo, drummer for Phil Lesh & Friends! You just cannot beat that with a stick!

The Groove / John Hiatt and the North Mississippi Allstars

Great show last night, although both me and the little lady were under the weather dropping antibiotics to combat a nice mutual case of streph throat...

Great synergy between John and this band. The guitarist had a distinctive twist to the 'delta blues' sound, slide and all. Sort of had a Garcia-esque way of building on a theme without sounding at all like Garcia. Oops, gotta run.

The Groove / Allman Brothers @ Nissan Pavilion
« on: June 27, 2006, 12:55:46 PM »
So my wife and I braved the weather sunday and caught the Allman Brothers show out at Nissan. It was a pretty good show considering the pouring rain and lightning, although they neglected to play some of their 'standards'. Warren Haynes was great as usual, but I was really impressed by Derek Trucks. He's predominantly a slide guitarist, but throughout the whole show his technical proficiency really shown through even though he is very laid back on stage. Definate jazz influence in his style. I was also really surprised when they broke out a bluesy version of The Band's 'The Weight'.

My only complaint was the sound for the opening band (Derek Trucks own side band). It was way to muddy and distorted. I was really concerned the sound would be that bad for the main act, but fortunately whatever the issue was went away when they started playing.

They started copying the Dead by selling CD recordings of the soundboard, so I took a chance and pre-ordered one as we were going in. The recording was phenomenal, and I forsee a lot of bands starting to offer this in the future.

All in all it was a decent show. If the weather had been nicer...
