The dark star of the day comes from this concert at Winterland, performed just a few days shy of forty years ago. A nice, meditative, somber-at-times version, that gives way to a particularly joyful development about halfway through. To partake of these licks, you’ll want to hit the play button on the player below, and if you don’t hear anything, hit the “forward” button once.
A pleasant piece with which to stare into the fires of early autumn, as I am doing at this moment in Maine, a cup of warm cider in hand, dogs on the floor, and the future all ahead of me with all its mind-numbing mystery.
and with thanks to the band, and to the folks who run archive.org, for the gift of the music.
