    Ooooh I didn't know about this. Thanks for the tipoff. I'm actually gonna look into this!

    I am so screwed if any of my drives die. I - at the time of getting them - couldn't afford backups.

    I can afford to get dvds though! That's a good idea that dumb me hadn't thought about - backing up onto disc.

    See, what format to go for is a problem for me anyways as I've got several 4tb drives - EACH of which is full or within a couple gigabytes (less than 100) of being full.

    I'd just go for another larger drive what point do you go "hold up" :p

    I finally streamed the 88 minutes of Listening Party stuff from the first four shows today. Really good and really good sound too. Dang, I may have to get this after all.

    The question is: do I really need $170 worth of Touch-head era GD added to my collection?

    All this talk about drives, on my drive I've been listening to the Aoxomoxia 50th anniversary, mostly the live stuff, though I'm in a drive through line right now blasting Whats Become of the Baby...

    Are your windows down? The other cars in the drive-through line probably think that you're getting ready to conduct a seance at your place. :uhhuh::evil::biglaugh:

    Not often at all.

    But still. It sounds great (unlike many of the tapes from that era) and is played well.

    Thank you. I don't listen to anything except on my ipods really, so I probably don't need it...

    How often do we listen to anything? They have like 2500 shows.

    Except you and the Fall '74 Winterland shows, of course.

    I agree with dzhason & ianuaditis that it's a slowed-down Feelin' Groovy jam, with a very different rhythm in the inspiration of the moment. (Kind of like Kooper & Bloomfield's slowed-down Feelin' Groovy.) I don't think they played it quite like this any other time, but in fall '69 they'd just started doing the Feelin' Groovy bit in Dark Star, and if you compare, say, the Dark Stars from 10/25, 11/7 and 11/8/69, the Feelin' Groovy sections are more raw, unformed, and unpredictable than they would become by December '69 -- it was still an infant jam that could grow in different directions.
    I also agree with ianuaditis that in these early days it was a cousin to the Uncle John's jam (before that become a song) -- they are kind of twin-sister jams that split apart soon after birth.
    As late as 1972 Feelin' Groovy could still vary quite a bit between performances -- I know you've heard the 4/14 and 11/13/72 Dark Stars where it's played insanely fast, but then there's also something like 10/2/72 when it comes in the jam before Morning Dew and they delightfully dance around it for a while:

    The girl at the counter did not get it when I ordered chopped olive sandwiches, roses and wine, and cold ripe persimmons.

    Everything mixed and mastered under the supervision of Steve Hillage. An amazing collection of studio and live classic-era Gong.

    PS- I'm just looking out for your best interests.

    ....and, oh, what is this? Goodness, one's wallet can be in trouble when browsing upcoming boxsets on the 'Zon:

    Caravan: Deram Years: An Anthology 1970 - 1975

    Nine CD set. This impressive release collates their Decca/Deram years complete with bonus tracks and rare live recordings in a striking box released to coincide with Decca's 90th Anniversary. The English city of Canterbury is home to two highly respected universities, one of the oldest public schools in Britain and, thanks to it's cathedral and being the seat of the Church of England, is at the very heart of English history. It was therefore something of a surprise when a group of musicians associated with progressive and avant-garde music came to define the sound of the city in the late 1960s. Caravan were formed in Canterbury 1968 by Pye Hastings (guitar/ vocals), Dave Sinclair (keyboards), Richard Sinclair (bass/vocals) and Richard Coughlan (drums). Following the release of an impressive self-titled debut on Verve, in 1970 the band signed to Decca's Deram label where they would record some of the most progressive and elegant music across the decade. Albums such as In The Land Of Grey And Pink, If I Could Do It All Over Again and For Girls Who Grow Plump In The Night cemented Caravan's reputation as kings of the Canterbury Sound.

    I have been trying to solve this puzzle for hours, How in allahs name can this show fit on a physical release? Where are the cuts on the master?

    Can't we pretend it's a few years earlier, so I can at least be in my early 30s? Is that to much to ask for?
