I hope they play this during the Beacon run this year. This song just is such a platform for fireworks.

Here's a nice version from GS back in the day:

Not content with not introducing him, Dickey throws his cigarette at David Goldflies!

This might be my favorite Dickey instrumental - even more so than Jessica & Liz. I might be one of the few who thinks this????

I realize this is a Dickey tune, but I think one of the best versions I saw live of this was when Jimmy Herring & Derek were trading licks on this.

It's my favorite Dickey instrumental too. The bass line is just so funky. And it is so jazzy and mysterious.

Love high falls. I feel like you have to concentrate when listening to Liz reed. You can just relax and enjoy this song.

I really like Goldflies' bass playing. I've been checking out videos of 79/80 ABB and 77/78 Great Southern on Wolfgang's vault recently and I'm more and more impressed with The Rook. His tone was a little thin sometimes but he laid down some great stuff. This whole Rockpalast show is terrific and it's great to watch what Dickey plays and what Dan plays. it makes it easier to hear the differences since their tone is so similar.

This is nice.. definitely would be nicer were it chuck instead of the other guy...

I interviewed Rook a couple of times ofr the book and his perspective was well worth hearing...Gregg was pretty rough on him in his book, and I think he was happy for an opportunity to present his side a bit.

Rook is introduced first and it appears that Dickey throws an unlit cigarette over the drum riser mainly because he doesn't seem to know what else to do with it.

It's really easy to post the worst about Dickey and know a segment here will just assume all of it's all true.

As noted above, I interviewed Rook for the book and he had (almost) nothing but good things to dsay about Dickey and his time with him. He considers him a mentor.

So true, so true
it's the same thing w/Rook IMO, just because he was w/the band during the ER/1980s era, people dismiss his contributions -- well here is your evidence folks... & his groove on the BHLT track Cadillac Tracks is A Groove a la bass-guitah ...,

Lighten up, huh?

I wasn't serious, at least not about the cigarette.

On closer listening, Dickey does indeed mumble something about "The Rook playing bass". In my defence, Southern Drawl isn't my first language....
