Show Notes

The band takes the stage to rabid applause, Ed walking along the back of the stage and greeting the Bridge School students sitting there. For those who care about these things, Ed is no longer blonde (more of a washed-out brown), Mike has the spikey blonde thing going again. ‘Soldier of Love’ is solid, followed by a nicely done ‘Wishlist.” Mike’s eyes are closed and he sings along to himself. “Here’s one – you know the last time you got a new pair of shoes…” and proceeds to tell us that they have a new song they’re really excited about. ‘Thin Air’ (a confirmed title) is a great song that reminds a lot of people of ‘Off He Goes.’ Lyrically it is an obvious love song. “Here’s another ditty that was written over there,” Ed says, gesturing northward, as they launch into ‘Elderly Woman,’ with Matt playing bongos for a different feel. Ed’s eyes are closed, Stone looks down, Jeff is in a fuzzy hat (actually, it is the “evil goat hat” from the Ten Club!). Ed then relates a very amusing story about being at Neil’s barbeque the previous night and Neil taking him aside, out into the woods: “Ed, there’s something I always wanted to tell you but I never thought the time was right — Ed, I am your father” (for those of you keeping count of PJ/Star Wars references, add another one). Ed: “So I said, ah, can I move down and stay in your house, and he said no.. so this is for dad and all my new brothers and sisters,” and launches into a hauntingly beautiful ‘Footsteps,’ beginning with a nice bluesy harmonica solo. Mike’s solo is eerily echoey, sparse, spacy. ‘Last Kiss’ is bearable, bringing the crowd to it’s feet with dancing and singing. The stand-up bass is brought out for ‘Yellow Ledbetter,’ with a great solo from Mike (as usual). All of the band returns at the end of the night for the final jam on Bob Dylan’s ‘I Shall Be Released,’ Mike and Jeff playing with The Who’s John Entwistle, Ed taking a few verses, and Matt on drums in the back. An AMAZING day!
