Last week, we served up a rare live track from a multi-track tape of an undated Native show at Wetlands.
We see no reason why we shouldn’t continue on with another stupendous Catherine Russell performance from the same night.
Native was not prone to do a lot of other folk’s material, but this tune just seems like it was made for us to play and for Catherine to sing. And, since the Grateful Dead hardly ever performed it in their shows, we can safely say that this is (in all humility) one of the best versions you’ll ever come across.
I (Dave) am off like a prom-dress, for a couple of weeks, to play some shows with my family band – The Blue Lick Victory Club – in Louisville, KY. As much fun as this blog is to do each week, I do sometimes have to pry myself away from the Davecave, see some sunshine & do some pickin’ & grinnin’.
So hang tight — we’ll pick up where we left off when we resume in July. There’s lots of Wyckoff-era Native rare goodies left in the vault that we will be exhuming for your listening pleasure.
Thanks to everyone who follows us, and who have made this blog so much fun to prepare. You are the reason we do this, and we love you!
See you soon!
