Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol. 5
I dunno. He responds by telling them that the party of derelicts has arrived and make sure they leave in time for the holidays. All the people seemed quite glad to see us Shaking hands and smiling like the clock Well we gave them all the message then That the ship of fools was in Make sure they get home for christmas He's lost me for good. Am I just getting lazy?
Or is he? The ship of fools image returns. Why do they need to be home for Christmas? Is this Cale returning to "Christmas in Wales" from his Paris album? I'm a bit lost. I guess it's time to sing the final chorus and end the tune. The young Jerry Garcia vocal delivery doesn't deliver the bitterness, however, Elvis Costello's cover Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol.
5 does. One of the best songs in the Dead cannon and classic example of the music of Jerry Garcia and words of Robert Hunter. I won't get into it here--follow the link if intrigued-- but the skinny, indie-nerd guy in the white t-shirt playing keyboard behind Garcia below is the mysterious Ned Lagin.
Thus, not many people know of his existence. Many old school fans have horrific memories of "Phil Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol. 5 Ned" making their scary electronic noises. The Visions From The Dark Side - Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness they released was called Seastones.
There's usually just one captain on a ship. Otherwise, the message is quite clear: the narrator cares not for any material Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol. 5no matter how great or small. He only wants one thing: to destroy the ship and its crew, and end the voyage. Ship of Fools Catchy chorus, and straight forward.
Like in John Cale's song, the narrator would like to distance himself from the ship of fools. He's not one of them, or at least no longer wishes to be. Saw your first ship sink and drown.
He assures this crew of childlike adults that he himself won't be responsible for any future destruction, but that being counted among them is just driving him batty. Could this be Robert Hunter's message Photographic - Depeche Mode - The World We Live In And Live In Hamburg (VHS) the crazier members of the Dead scene?
Let's act like it". Now, the booze is gone and all we've gotten is old. And I'll pass along my lesson learned to the few people smart enough to listen. Have a good look at the crew before joining in. Let's break now before we turn against each other. This clip is fromso Garcia's voice has a bit less youthful ambiguity to it. He looks a lot older than his years here.
So let's just see what happens here. But apparently he's a pretty self-centered guy who doesn't want to hear what's being said. A grouchy old man. Seger was shouting some kind of warning to McPhee. McPhee fleetingly shows interest, but walks away. Kind of like an annoying friend who says "what? OR, more like a parent, to Seger being the child who's asking too many questions. Let's now recall the Dead line about a 30 year old being treated like a child.
The captain strolled the bridge one night I stopped him in the evening light To ask him would it be all right to join him But he stood there like some idol And he listened like some temple And then he turned away Seger really just wants to be treated as a peer, or at least with respect in the eyes of the captain.
You never know, he may just be able to see clearer than this stubborn, self-important captain. This time, at least the captain gives Seger some time, but then walks away silently. Not one for conversation. So, guess what happens?
All along the fateful coast We moved silent like a ghost The timeless sea of tireless host possessed us The wind came building from the cold northwest And soon the waves began to crest Crashing cross the forward deck All hands lost I alone survived the sinking I alone III.
Con spirito - Walter Piston - Walter Piston the tools On that ship of fools How he alone survives, Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol. 5 doesn't say. Passing helicopter? Who cares? World Party from Private Revolution We jump ahead to the mid's. Former Waterboy Karl Wallenger scores a big alternative hit with his new project, World Party, and their single Though big on the retro vibe, let's see if and how the concept of the Ship of Fools has changed with the generations.
You sail away from the light of the world on this trip, baby Karl is saying "We're following in the footsteps of those before us who have desired the not-so-pure things in life. It's a voyage where temptation leads into darkness and our ultimate demise". You only live once!
Let's party! Just say no! Sex is dangerous! Right now Well, there's your answer. Karl is saying, "go ahead, fools. I aren't one o' ye". Yeah, you're gonna pay tomorrow Ok, I should stop assuming that he's not talking to the conservative leadership that was ruling the world at this time.
But the bit in the first verse about "women and lace This sounds like some Catholic sermon. Preaching against greed is always good, but Catholics do that a lot. And who uses "avarice" and the phrase "light of this world" AND "save me" except those preaching from the Bible? Hmm, really, I've heard this song many times--never loved it, compared to the many great singles from Goodbye Jumbo --just not much of a melody in the verse. And I just never paid attention to these Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol.
5doomsaying lyrics. Anyway, finish up, Karl. It's just a ship of fools. Soul Asylum--from Made to Be Broken Shipwreck sailors searching for Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol. 5 fools gold They're the local drunken boys Been out drinking all night feeling alright We watch them kill each other in a fight The narrator again is among, but does not feel part of, this particular ship of fools, which is immediately identified as local yahoos.
The narrator is a passive observer to their drunken, violent ways. Ship of fools, drunken hearts Making yet another new start Ain't it hard to play that part When you've got a drunken heart Pirner is kind of bar stool preaching. I mean, Soul Asylum never appeared to be a healthy, well-rested clan. I can't change the world by complaining You can't change it with a kiss Be no? Second line: who can't?

Relix vol. A good, interesting interview overall; for instance Garcia Call The Filth (Buzzcut Mix) - Abstract - Twisted about why the Dead were not doing any Vault releases. The album was well received when it was released, and on the rare occasions when I hear any of it, it still sounds pretty good.
While a few connected people had some tapes in those days, most people didn't, and Jerry Garcia tapes were even rarer, so Reflections gave a contemporary picture of Jerry Garcia's music at the end of that wasn't available otherwise. Of course, even at the time I knew that some of the songs had been floating around for a while. Still, the recordings on Reflections were very well done, and they wouldn't have fit on Blues For Allah.
The three cover versions were excellent choices but suitably obscure "Catfish John," "I'll Take A Melody" and "Tore Up Over You"and the configuration of the record was typical of solo albums at the time. A few tracks with the parent group, some originals and some hip-but-obtuse covers-- Reflections was an excellent specimen of a typical mids solo album by the front man of a major group.
Reflections was released in February, Nicky Hopkins had already left the Jerry Garcia Band by that time, but the group had continued on with Keith and Donna Godchaux on board. Kahn, quoted in Blair Jackson's book, said "the album was supposed to be a Jerry Garcia Band album, but it sort of fell apart in the middle, so it ended up being half that and half Grateful Dead" Jackson, p.
Given Nicky Hopkins personal and health problems in the Fall ofit makes a plausible story. And yet, an analysis of the recording information provided on the All Good Things box set leads us to some unexpected conclusions.
I think the Grateful Dead were working on another album, and that work got sidetracked into a Jerry Garcia album out of financial necessity. The studio sessions with Nicky Hopkins and Larry Knechtel on electric piano, mostly happened later. It's possible that the session listings are incorrect. However, a comment from Garcia seems to confirm the timeline, if somewhat implicitly quote via Deaddisc : A lot of the energy from that record [ Reflections ] is really a continuation of the Blues For Allah groove that we got into.
We sort of continued the same energy because we were having a lot of fun doing it. So it seems like the August sessions were following on the earlier Blues For Allah album. So what was the Garcia album that "fell apart? Yet the evidence doesn't appear to support it. What could really have been happening? Some Considerations Without additional information, I can only speculate on the actual dynamics underlying the recording of Reflections. Of course, speculation is Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol.
5 specialty, but even I am unable to rank any of these factors in order of importance. It is up to the reader to Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol. 5 which factors may have been the most important. This was quite a surprise to Merl, apparently, and John Kahn was deputized to deliver the bad news to his friend.
Was there a planned Garcia album with Merl that got stifled? It's interesting to consider that in AugustGarcia was playing shows with the Keith and Donna Godchaux band while recording what would become Reflections with the Grateful Dead. It certainly causes me to re-think the timing of Garcia's dismissal of Merl Saunders, because if an album was imminent, I don't know what to make of it.
If Garcia was planning a solo album, he must have had a greater urgency to dump Merl than he ever admitted. However, whatever Garcia's frustration with Saunders, I don't think he was thinking about a solo album in the Summer. Sometimes rabid fan reviewers would grow bored that some songs would be repeated in different cities! Long-time soundman Dan Healy was fired for repeatedly playing detrimentally with live mixes out of boredom. John Cutler replaced him and experimented with mono PA mixing but it was a long time before he managed to bring back the sound quality the GD were so famous for.
With so many new tunes the GD attempted a studio album session Bitter Harvest - Acker Bilk - Call Me Mister November, but nothing came of it. Bythere were a very noticeable amount of unsold seats at some venues, clearly a result of too many recent lackluster shows, sound problems, audience and security problems.
The Grateful Dead still had much to give, as long as their health held out and they were alive. Even Jerry knew it. In Highgate Vermont population then,fans started pouring in up to a week early for the 65, sold-out tickets. Traffic was snarled for miles and thousands demolished a perimeter fence to get in.
At the Albany Knickerbocker Arena two cops were assaulted by a belligerent crowd while attempting to arrest dealers. At Washington DC RFK Stadium, three people were hospitalized after being hit by lightning while sitting out a pre-show thunderstorm in a tree.
In Pittsburg, traffic was tied up for miles and two concert-goers fell from the upper to lower stadium levels, one with a broken leg fighting assistance and one carted off in a stretcher and neck brace.
Deer Creek had 20, with tickets and 15, ticketless arrive This quickly turned very ugly with rock and bottle throwing at cops, literally thousands storming the gates and over fences, and dispersion with tear gas, mace and canine patrols. The band freaked, and there was literally Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol. 5 choice but to cancel the second show.

Four additional tracks were recorded live at the same venue on December 17, Last four tracks were recorded live at the same venue on December 17, A third bonus CD, with additional music from the same shows, was included with early copies of this release.
This is the eighth release in the Road Trips series. It was an elegant and rosy aim, no doubt shared by the legions of GD fans. And, you know, after about five years, I got a little less nervous. If you the GD, Robert Hunter suspected your time might be limited, what themes and musical styles Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol.
5 you pass on to fans or incorporate into a final album? And they did attempt to record that album. Phil has a couple. We have our best record ever waiting in the wings. We have more than enough material. Sadly, the final decision was to forget about it, possibly rather than risk bad Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol. 5. I personally feel that the lack of that final album, flawed or not, was a loss both to their musical legacy and the closure it may have provided to the massive Dead Head community.
I count about a dozen songs plus a bit of filler which would have been considered and whittled down to an album. Welnick had some wacky samba jam at rehearsal and Hunter whipped up some lyrics. Let's get sweet and low Any way you call the shot, That's how it's gonna be You can serve it cold or hot, It's all okay by me Tie me with a ribbon bow, Wrap me in cellophane Send me out to steal the show or Samba in the Rain Samba in the rain oh baby, Samba in the rain Let's get down and dirty, Garcias Story - Grateful Dead* - Left In The Vaults Vol.

The lyrics seem to reflect either petulance, anger, or exasperation see preceding paragraph. Lesh noted that the subject matter had nothing to do with the Arthur C Clarke novel. Music by Welnick and Bob Bralove and lyrics by Hunter, it was the very positive sign that the band had assimilated and moved forward into new musical territory with Welnick.
