What a goldmine!!greenspun.com : LUSENET : brucehornsby : One Thread
First off, let me commend your work and thank you for such an excellent site! I've been a big fan of Bruce from his first album (yes I have them all...) As a card carrying Deadhead for the past 25 or so years I especially love his work with them on tour and also the collaborations that he has had with Garcia and others throughout his varied career.
Back in the mid to late 70's (man what ancient technology that seems like now!) I was heavily involved with taping and trading - mainly the Dead - but for a variety of reasons took a long hiatus from any activity in that area. With a new computer lately and a CD burner I've been looking around figuring that there had to be something out there on the Net and have found some stuff occasionally on Napster and on a few other sites but had not found a whole lot of Bruce material. I've only had the luck to see him live twice - living in Cd'A Idaho we don't get a lot of good shows passing through but I was lucky enough to see him a couple summers ago at Silver Mountain and then this past August was incredibly fortunate to win tickets to the Further Festival at The Gorge Washington... Would love to find copies of those shows...
Anyway, just recently I checked the links on Bruce' official site (don't know why I hadn't done that sooner) but there was your site and Si's site and they are both fantastic and I'm REALLY looking forward to getting lots of great live music! Again thank you, and I hope some day to be able to add my own contributions to the live music we all love!
