If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Grateful Dead and New Riders and Joan Baez, 12-31-1981

This is my favorite New Years concert that I attended. And this is as complete a record of the show as you will find anywhere. I left late at night on the 27th after my work shift and drove alone up to Oakland from Southern Cal. I went alone because some of my friends went ahead and some could only come for the New Years show. I went up without any tickets in hand and I arrived in Oakland very early on the morning of 28th and proceeded to total my car due to brake failure (poor maintenance on my part). I T-boned a Ford Pinto with my 74 Toyota Corolla several blocks away from the Oakland Auditorium. Luckily no one was hurt so left my car in a yellow zone and walk to the Auditorium. When I arrived the people who were cleaning up the Auditorium from the show the night before were coming out of the building. A nice guy named Ray Augustine that I had met through mutual friends came out and proceeded to give me a ticket for that nights show. Things started looking up. Soon I found my friends dog Althea and followed it to my friend Rob's tent in the park. We salvaged what we could from my car and then went to the show that night. I slept in a tent the rest of my stay in the park right in front of the Oakland Auditorium. And it rained and rained. The 29th was a day between shows and I went back to were my car was and it had not been towed. So I had it towed to a junk yard. The 30th I again was able to get a ticket and saw the show (great first set). On the 31st it was raining a lot and I had no tickets and had five friends who came up without tickets. I bought a ticket to the BART train and hung out in the station and found six tickets at face value from Dead Heads as they came off the trains. So I was in and my friends were too. We entered the building as early as we could to get out of the rain. The New Riders were an opening act and as I remember they had some other things to keep us entertained like jugglers and such. When you listen to the new riders show you will hear them state that it was still four hours until midnight. Joan Baez came out and did some solo acoustic tunes and then one by one the Grateful Dead joined her. First the drummers for a Arabic new years song and then Bob Weir on Acoustic guitar. When Jerry came out he picked up and acoustic guitar and started to strum it and nothing came out. He looked upset and proceeded to pick up his electric guitar. So the acoustic set did not appear to turn out as planned. Then there was a long set break and then the real show started with a fantastic first set full of treats like one of the first Big Boss Man's played since 1972, and special guest Matt Kelly on harmonica as well as another appearance of Joan Baez. As new years eave approached Ken Keasy came down on a cable from the ceiling and was hanging above the stage standing on a cable that went off horizontally into the rafters. he talked about the old days and lead the whole crowd in a mass hyperventilation, and then the countdown. At twelve Bill Graham wearing an skeleton mask and dressed as Uncle Sam rode a giant joint down to the stage and the band started their second electric set with Iko Iko. After this there was another set break and then band came out and played the first Dark Star since January of 1979 (and they would only play one more in he next eight years). The show ended with Jerry and Joan Baez singing All Over Baby Blue, and they told us to stick around for breakfast. I left the building as the sun was coming up and started the new years without a car and needing a ride home but still happy as ever. This was not the best performace ever. Sure there are flaws. But it was a great time and one I won't forget. The cover artwork I drew myself back in the day (an Arizona Jones original).

Lake Sabrina to Moonlight Lake Backpack Trip

Here is another great Eastern Sierra backpack trip. This one starts at a large lake called Lake Sabrina at 9132 foot elevation. I like this trip because the starting point is so high that there is not very much climbing to get to the good stuff. This trip heads into a lake basin called The Sabrina Basin in the John Muir Wilderness of the Inyo National Forest in California.
When I did this trip it was years ago. So things may have changed a little. When I did this the trail head parking was near the end of Lake Sabrina Road at an intersection with a westbound road that leads to North Lake. You start the hike by walking south up the paved road for about a half mile where you will find a signed trailhead. The trail traverses along open exposed slopes on the east side of Lake Sabrina. Here is a picture of my three female companions and the view as you start out along this ridge. About 1.3 miles from the road there is a trail junction with an east bound trail that leads to George Lake up on Table Mountain. You continue right or south at this junction. You will soon pass the small outlet creek for George Lake and then the trail starts to climb some switch backs. After the switch backs you arrive at Blue Lake at around 10400 foot elevation. This lake is beautiful and if this were the only lake on the trip it would still be worth the short trip. There are great views south across the lake of some dramatic peaks along the Sierra Crest, with a prominent pointed bare spire in the foreground that is close to 12,500 feet tall and Thompson Ridge with Mount Thompson at over 13,400 foot height behind in the back ground. This lake is only a little over 2.5 miles from the road so many day hikers can make this their destination. The trail then crosses the outlet creek of Blue Lake and then heads along the west shore of the lake. After a short way you come to a trail junction. If you head straight it will take you to Donkey Lake and the Baboon Lakes, a worth while side trip if you have the time. I did this on the way back. This is what it looks like up there at one of the lakes. And there is a lot of great stuff to explore using these lakes as a base camp you could go up to Sunset Lake and get a view of the Thompsom Glacier. But our trip takes the right fork and heads west at this junction. After about a mile and a quarter from this trail junction you will get to the largest of the Emerald Lakes about four miles from the road. You pass this lake and continue southwest up over a small rise to Dingleberry Lake at about 10490 foot elevation. You pass this lake along it's east shore and continue up the drainage. Less than a half mile past Dingleberry Lake and about five miles from the road there is a trail junction. If you head south or take the right fork it will take you to beautiful and dramatic Midnight Lake. Midnight Lake is at close to 11,000 foot elevation and is in a bowl surrounded by steep rocky cliffs and ridges and dramatic peaks. I camped here and loved the beautiful play of light off the peaks. I believe that the tall peak reflected in this photo is Mount Darwin at 13,831 feet tall. If you take the left fork of the trail junction below Midnight Lake it takes you to Topsy Turvy Lake where there are some great campsites with fantastic views. If you continue on past Topsey Turvy Lake you will soon reach Hungry Packer Lake at 11,070 foot elevation about 6.3 miles from the road. This lake has a dramatic spire called Picture Peak rising up just south of it making for a beautiful scene. From here it is a short walk west over to Moonlight Lake were the views across the lake to the Jagged Sierra Crest are fantastic. These photos were taken at the outlet of Moonlight Lake and fit together as a panorama. The prominent Peak in the fore ground is Picture Peak with Mount Hackel in the right background and Mount Powell and the Clyde Spires to the Left. Here is a pieced together panorama of the view from this same location as is the one at the start of the post. From here you can continue up the valley to the source of the Middle Fork of Bishop Creek to Echo Lake. If you are really a veteran and experienced back country traveler you could cross the Sierra Crest via this trail less route over Echo Pass and end up in Kings Canyon National Park in the Evolution region. Me I just enjoyed the short walks between the fantastic lakes in this basin and then headed back the way I came. By the way all these lakes have abundant trout if that's your thing. Like all Eastern Sierra trips in wilderness areas permits are required, so plan in advance.
If you want a good map with picture interface this site is great and his photos are real fine http://doors.stanford.edu/~sr/sabrina-2006/map.html

Little Feat. 6-20-2001

Here is a Little Feat show that is not on the Archive. I have not seen this at any other site so I guess it is an Arizona Jones exclusive. It's a real nice sounding recording and the show has some cool jams so give it a try. I still have a hard time getting my mind around the loss of Richie Hayward who passed away back in August.

Hot Tuna And Friends, 3-04-88

This is a pretty nice Hot Tuna performance at the Fillmore Auditorium. From what I have found, Kaukonen surprised fellow Airplane alumnus Paul Kantner, who was sitting in, with a surprise appearance by his estranged lover Grace Slick; the success of this performance helped to pave the way for a Jefferson Airplane reunion tour and record in 1989. This came from a cassette tape that I have had since the early 90s.

Old And In The Way, 7-23-73

Here is yet another show featuring Jerry Garcia from the time period between 1973 and 1975. It's another fine soundboard recording of Old And In The Way. In 1973 Jerry played 26 Old And In The Way shows, along with 74 Grateful Dead shows, and 49 Garcia and Saunders shows. Around 150 shows in one year along with whatever time was spent in the studio producing the Wake Of The flood album. Jerry was also very productive during this time creating new songs. That alot of frequent flier miles. This is one of my favorite time periods of the Grateful Dead. I guess Jerry was trying to stay busy while dealing with the loss of his friend and band mate from the Grateful Dead, Pig Pen, who died at age 27 on 3-08-1973.

Townes Van Zandt, 4-18-85

Townes Van Zandt is considered by many to be one of the great american song writers. Steve Earl once said he would stand on Bob Dylans coffee table in his boots and say that Townes Van Zandt is the greates american song writer. Well I don't know about that. I feel Robert Zimmerman (Bob Dylan) has a little on Townes, but I get the point that Steve thinks Townes deserves a little attention. This is a nice example of Townes on NPR so it is good quality.

Zawinul Syndicate, 1998

Josef Erich Zawinul died on September 11, 2007 at age 75. Joe Zawinul was an Austrian-American jazz keyboardist and composer. His first appearance of note was with saxophonist Cannonball Adderley, Zawinul went on to play with trumpeter Miles Davis, and to become one of the creators of what is called jazz fusion. Later, Zawinul co-founded the groups Weather Report and the world fusion music-oriented Zawinul Syndicate. Zawinul was named "Best Electric Keyboardist" 28 times by the readers of Down Beat magazine. This show is a good example of Zawinul Syndicate and the sound is great. I only wish I could find a good bootleg with Scott Henderson on guitar with this band from around the same time period. The dummer Kirk Covington went on to play with Scott Henderson in Tribal Tech, one of my favorite fusion bands (wish Henderson was more trade friendly).

Wynton Marsalis and Friends, 11-13-2009

This is a show by Wynton Marsalis that was part of three Wynton Marsalis and Friends Jazz at Lincoln Center concerts in the Rose Theater, Sept. 28-30, featuring Wynton Marsalis and eight other musicians. The concerts were to celebrate Louis Armstrong's Hot Fives and Hot Sevens. As always Wynton gets it right when it comes to accurately preserving the art form. This is a very nice sounding show of some traditional jazz played by some great musicians of today. The piano player is a New Orleans native that is only 19 years old but plays like an old pro.

This show is a great documentation of the legendary and very influential Louis Armstrong.

The Wynton Marsalis Quintet with special guest Dave Brubeck, 8-08-10

Today was Dave Brubeck's birthday. He turned 90 years old. He has been doing his thing since the 40s and has been a special part of the jazz history of the last 70 years. This show is just this year where he appeared with Winton Marsalis. Brubeck may have been 89 at the time of this recording but he can still play with some zest. Happy Birthday Dave!

Dave Brubeck's "Hope" 11-01-04

It's Dave Brubeck's birthday so I'm posting a couple of his shows to show his wide diversity. We all know his jazz side, but this classical composition is another side of Dave.

Mass “To Hope” Live
Live at “Salzburger Jazzherbst”
Grosses Festspielhaus
Salzburg, Austria
Ex FM stereo.

Dave Brubeck performing his 1980 composition, To Hope! A Celebration, at the Salzburg festival. Composed at the request of Ed Murray, then editor of the Catholic Weekly, Our Sunday Visitor, To Hope! was possibly Brubeck’s first Christian work.

But Brubeck is no stranger to long compositional pieces, marrying jazz to other forms of music. He had already written the critically acclaimed The Gates Of Justice in 1969. Brubeck has a long history of involvement in social and political side projects.

Said music fan Steve Seim on Amazon.com: “To Hope!” is Dave Brubeck’s attempt at composing a mass, or Christian liturgy. The result is mixed. Unlike Vince Guaraldi’s masterpiece Grace Cathedral Concert, this is not a jazz piano mass. Instead, it is largely a contemporary-classical work, focused on vocals and traditional arrangements. It does, however, include several jazz passages, including one that swings almost like a ’50s surf-rock record. Not everyone will like this recording, but every fan of jazz or contemporary sacred music should listen to it.”

That sums it up accurately. This is not a blend of musical styles but rather classical music sitting next to Brubeck’s stinging piano-led jazz. As one form ends, the other begins. The two styles never weave into each other. The best example of Brubeck’s inspired writing here is the track Alleluia. It is an almost nine-minute uplifting choral piece that segues into a contemporary jazz workout that swings.

Bill Monroe, four shows from 1954 to 1969

William Smith Monroe (September 13, 1911 – September 9, 1996) Bill Monroe was one of the most influential persons in the development of bluegrass music, which takes its name from his band, the "Blue Grass Boys," named for Monroe's home state of Kentucky. Monroe's performing career spanned 60 years as a singer, instrumentalist, composer and bandleader. He is often referred to as The Father of Bluegrass. Here are some great recordings of this more than legendary artist. These are historical documents of the most influential musician of bluegrass music. These have Doc Watson on one and Del McCoury on another

This show was the first event that used the words, "Bluegrass Festival," and was promoted by the legendary singer and recording artist, Bill Clifton. The location was Oak Leaf Park in Luray, Virginia, and the date was July 4, 1961. This was also the first time that more than two well-known Bluegrass acts were booked on the same show. Prior to that occasion, one or two Bluegrass bands would be booked on a country show of that period. The festival was a one day event that featured Bill Monroe, The Stanley Brothers, The Country Gentlemen, Jim and Jesse, Mac Wiseman and Bill Clifton. This was also the first time that Bill Monroe called former members of The Blue Grass Boys to the stage to play and sing. When 2,200 people attended the show, it opened up a new venue for Bluegrass music.

David Grisman appearently is selling it. Why it is his to sell I have no idea.
I guess because he claimed he taped it. So tapers if you tape it you can sell it?
