3/1/70 from the Family Dog at the Great Highway in San Francisco is one of the shows included in the big–and apparently ongoing–dump of upgrades and new-to-circulation stuff. This new version, available on the torrents and mastered by Sir Mick, is clear and thick and crunchy and musical; it is a good mix and you should get it. (The Kaplan version on Relisten is just as good, probably.)
I could bother you about the Other One, which is hurricanic; or the Cumberland, which is one of the Six Cumberlands of Power; or the Drums, which there are two of: I will not do that.
Nor will I mention the Big Boy Pete that opens the show, and I will say nothing at all about the fact that Pig sings the Big Boy Pete that opens the show; furthermore, I shall refrain from noting the beautiful three-part harmony that Pig, Garcia, and Bobby engage in while Pig sings Big Boy Pete. I’m not going to say any of that.
I am going to say that Donald Trump has long-established, well-researched ties to both the Russian Mafia and the Mafia Mafia. I will say that. More people should be saying that, but if I’m the only one, then so be it: I will be Cato the Elder.
We must destroy Carthage, and Donald Trump has mob ties.
