Hey Everyone,

I've been on an ARU kick lately, and since it's been a while since I did a B&P type offer, I thought it would be a good time to turn some of your people on to this great music

Recently I've been checking out the ARU offerings on archive.org, and while they don't have the hundreds or thousands of shows that the Dead and some other bands have on there, there is a pretty good selection. Two in particular have really caught my attention, partly because they both feature very special guests who add a lot to the equation.

7-7-92---This is a fantastic show from start to finish, possibly the best ARU I've ever heard. This is a small club show in Burlington, Vermont with members of Phish and their extended family sitting in. The energy and creativity on display here are mind-blowing, and sax player Dave Grippo really brings his A game. After an amazing Time Is Free>Davy Crockett>Elevator to the Moon sequence, (maybe the hottest 30 minutes of ARU ever?)you can hear Oteil exclaim "GRIPPO! God Damn, I am telling you!"

5-28-93---This show has gotten some props on Derek's forum, because it features the Young Jedi on most of the show, and at the ripe old age of 13 he's already got it. Derek isn't the only reason to get this show, it's an excellent example of Golden Age ARU and even the songs he doesn't play on will drop your jaw to the floor. Check out the energy from the crowd when they kick back in to "Time Is Free" after Oteil's bass solo. WHOA!

Anyway, you can download both of these fine offerings from the good folks at archive.org, but if you're unable to do that, shoot me a PM. No blanks, no postage, just an address and I'll take care of the rest. I'll stop the offer when I get 10 replies.

Hope you all dig it as much as I do!

I have been listening to the show from 93 off and on for about a month now. Good stuff for sure. The other day I came across The Hittin' The Note with Jimmy on the cover and reread your article on the history of ARU. A very good read. I really wish Matt Mundy would return to the world of music. It seems like such a tragic lost the way everyone speaks of him in such a deep and respectful way. I am very thankful that I was able to see him play a handful of times with the Unit. Was it difficult for you to get an interview with him?
