We had our separation. Then I heard Bob Weir released an album of Cowboy based songs. My first musical experience was old cowboy songs on vinyl.
I was ready for an evening of escape. I made the drive. There was even a small collection of vendors in the parking lot. Not as cool as I remember for the old Stadium shows, but something. I missed vendors.
The opening with just Bob and his guitar for a few songs was more intimate than any stadium show. His band was good with a strong Americana vibe to it.
Below he performs a couple days later at Wanee covering Little Feat..
Another from Wanee with his touring band "Cassidy"
"Playin' in the Band" a week earlier in Austin..
Yes a member of the Grateful Dead, not quite the same as the old shows, but a touch of magic. Just enough to send me back home.
