40th anniversary today of the best May '77 has to offer.  Never understood why Cornell always got so much love. I guess because of the sound quality of the early boots.  Anyway, 5/4 is where it's at.  blasted the Jerry Moore aud today, prob hit the SBD tonight.

my cornell box will be here tomorrow when I get home from work (amazon).
I feel the sniffles coming on that I think I need to depart work early tomorrow.  can't be too careful that it may turn into something much worse.

I've got the CD box and the vinyl box both arriving tomorrow.  Pretty psyched to check them out.  Even though I am not a '77 guy, from what I have already hear, these should sound pretty minty.

Gotta be soon but haven't heard anything.

This all sounds vaguely familiar...

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

That is pretty cool - I'm seeing it at my local Alamo Drafthouse. Pretty pumped. Already decided I need to uber over there as four hours of beer could take a toll.

I thought this was a cool read.  Seems like a good starting point for a playlist...

I usually don't like "best of" lists, this is a damn good one.

Yes indeed, that 2-2-68 Viola is the shit. Got me back in a good Primal trip for the last couple of days.
I'd rather dwell in some dark holler where the sun refuses to shine, where the wild birds of heaven can't hear me when I whine.

Saw the movie and it was mostly great, I won't say it felt short, because 4 hours is a long time to sit in a theater.  But I will say that it definitely needed to be that long to do the story justice.  Some of the footage from the acid tests and other early days shows was pretty awesome to see. 

A couple thoughts: 

There are some conspicuous absences like Betty Cantor, Dan Healy, Mountain Girl, all not even metioned much less interviewed and I was surprised that they didn't have Dave Lemiuex chime in on anything.   Also, I guess they got Robert Hunter to sit (or lay as the case may be) for an interview but only 10 seconds or so were usable? 

The part with Barbara Meier at the end was heartbreaking

Did not know that Dennis McNally is now some unholy hybrid of Johnny Carson and Casey Kasem

The stuff with Sam Cutler and Steve Parish was gold and was the source of most of the information I didn't already know

Franken 2020!
