I went to Northport for some breakfast. Had some chocolate mud cake which was out of this world. After that, we went to a nice little record store right next store. I saw Hot Tuna’s “First Pull Up, Then Pull Down” for one dollar. I grabbed it right away even though I don’t have a turntable anymore.
After getting the record we walked around town. Every store I went into, they all asked about the album. It was a big hit. People were telling me about the time they saw Hot Tuna in concert and about all the albums that had. One guy told me that his son has a bunch of albums cause they sound better then downloads or CD’s.
And to think, I got rid of most of my albums.
I just came back from Best Buy. My computer is giving me problems and I don’t think it’s gonna last long so I went to checkout some new ones.
While I was there I was looking at the basket they have of discount CD’s. As I’m looking I hear some lady say, “Pretty soon they’ll be no CD’s left.” I walked over there, looking at what CD’s they have left and she starts talking to me about the lack of CD’s in the store. I tell her, I have to buy most of my CD’s online. She said she don’t like to do that but she might have to. I asked her what CD she was looking for and she said the new Bon Jovi. Then she said it’s not really her type of music. I asked here what her type of music was and she said Heavy Metal. She looked like she was in her 60’s, and she mentioned that her grandkids new more about computers then her. She asked me what music I listened to and I said The Grateful Dead. Then we both kind of stared at each other kind of strangely. Then we both went our own ways.
If you like the Dead’s “Blues For Allah,”
You’ll like “Kingfish’s” first album. Both recorded in Bob Weir’s studio and both have the same sound a feel.
If Weir had stayed with Kingfish, I think they could have been big.
I just started reading this book “Elvis and The Grateful Dead.” When I first saw the cover, I thought it was about Elvis Presley and The Grateful Dead. Turns out Elvis is a basset hound who thinks he’s Elvis Presley reincarnated. The Grateful Dead part are the two (so far) Elvis impersonators who died. Elvis (the dog) thinks they sang so bad, they’re Grateful to be Dead.
I got the book cheap and figured what the hell. I’m glad I bought it. So far it’s really good.
I just got done reading a Rad Bradbury book, so this is a nice change of pace.
