The Festival Express is coming! (it's here!)
    #2439544 - 03/16/04 03:43 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

As i was reading my new issue of RELIX at work today, i came across an artical about the Festival Express!

In the summer of 1970, the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, The Band and a host of other musicians took a charted train trip across Canada. And it's on film. Really good film. Coming to theaters this July. DVD to follow. But go out of your way to catch it in the big screen for the concert experience. At the Toronto Film Festival last summer, tears were rolling down checks during Janis's soul-baring, and spontaneous applause erupted in the mid-song, as if it were a jass club.

can't wait to see this one!

Might As Well

Great North Special, were you on board?
You can't find a ride like that no more
Night the chariot swung down low
Ninety nine children had a chance to go

One long party from front to end
Tune to the whistle going round the bend
No big hurry, what do you say?
Might as well travel the elegant way


Might as well, might as well
Might as well, might as well
Might as well, might as well
Might as well, might as well

After starting this thread,  i had to skip ahead in the current book i'm reading (Garcia, by Blair Jackson) to the festival express part. I only found a couple of pages of stuff,  here's one.....

"Ripple"  is easily one of Hunter and Garcia's best-loved works, though they rarely performed it outside of the acoustic sets the group played in 1970 and 1980. "We were on the trans-Canadian train trip,"  Hunter said. "Jerry woke up one morning, sat out on the railroad tracks somewhere near Saska-toon and put it to music." " It just seemed to happen automatically," Garcia noted modestly.

thought that was kinda kool!    :smile: :gd_icon:

Heh, no offense :smirk::

Well, that big dumb blonde
With her wheel in the gorge
And Turtle, that friend of theirs
With his checks all forged
And his cheeks in a chunk
With his cheese in the cash
They're all gonna be there
At that million dollar bash
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
It's that million dollar bash

Ev'rybody from right now
To over there and back
The louder they come
The harder they crack
Come now, sweet cream
Don't forget to flash
We're all gonna meet
At that million dollar bash
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
It's that million dollar bash

Well, I took my counselor
Out to the barn
Silly Nelly was there
She told him a yarn
Then along came Jones
Emptied the trash
Ev'rybody went down
To that million dollar bash
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
It's that million dollar bash

Well, I'm hittin' it too hard
My stones won't take
I get up in the mornin'
But it's too early to wake
First it's hello, goodbye
Then push and then crash
But we're all gonna make it
At that million dollar bash
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
It's that million dollar bash

Well, I looked at my watch
I looked at my wrist
Punched myself in the face
With my fist
I took my potatoes
Down to be mashed
Then I made it over
To that million dollar bash
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
Ooh, baby, ooh-ee
It's that million dollar bash

I think Mr. Zimmerman may have been a little jealous.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
