This show was a pleasant surprise on many levels, except one, that being that the Sonics deck died about an hour in. After 10 days of this, the brain is starting to falter? suffering from CRS? (can't remember shit)...must have grabbed the "to be charged" batteries vs. the charged ones. That said, I had the 2nd Tascam w/ internals sitting on a chair right next to me, and to my ears it sounds great (just listen to Dave's tone during the opening numbers). I made friends with a guy who may help me score extra recordings in Memphis (will have to trust him with a deck, but he seems cool), as 9 bands are playing for sure I'd like to get, with only time for 4...but these notes aren't about Beale, they're about Dave.
I thought he played his ass off for his having had previous health problems (or so I had heard, never looked it up). The mid-set acoustic set maybe dragged on for "3 songs too long", but if it helps him get thru a 90 minute set, it's probably the right choice to make. The most fun was watching the last 3 numbers, and there were women in their 70's (and I'm sure 80's) shaking their booty and singing along, reliving their youth.
And isn't that what this thing called "music" is for a great number of us tuneage freaks?
He's not terribly kinky, but he never makes me question where the good times have gone (they're right here!)...he goes by Dennis, and while 'you may not really get him', he still deserves *your* thanks, as without him, you'd never hear any of this stuff.
Myself, however, I can get kinda kinky, especially when it comes to taping shows. Or something like that.
You know the drill...
