HSB 2012 Doug Sahm’s Phantom Playboys

Doug Sahm’s Phantom Playboys, October, 7, 2012, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

This is something special. Doug Sahm was the founder of the Sir Douglas Quintet and their big hit (at least here in SF) was Mendocino in 1969. Even though Doug Sahm was from Texas, he came to San Francisco in the 60’s to play music. Sahm died in 1999, but the legacy lives on because Boz Scaggs brought a bunch of Texas music veterans to San Francisco for apparently a one time only event for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and pulled it off with flying colors. All of these musicians already have their own tour schedule, including Scaggs, so this could not have been easy and it may never happen again

The band that played HSB was DOUG SAHM’S PHANTOM PLAYBOYS featuring: Dave Alvin, Steve Earle, Delbert McCLinton, Boz Scaggs, Jimmie Vaughan..

recorded at 24 bit/96khz

Dave Alvin’s guitar stolen after Hardly Strictly Bluegrass

posted a few hours ago on Dave Alvins facebook page

Had an amazing and exhausting weekend at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival. I have wonderful memories of playing with The Guilty Ones with my dear brother Phil joining us, the tribute to Doug Sahm (with Boz Scaggs, Derek O’Brien, Jimmie Vaughan, Delbert McClinton and Boz’s tough band) and, of course, The Knitters. Sadly, though, these memories are now badly tarnished by the fact that someone (I’m trying to refrain from using profanity) STOLE my beloved Jerry Jones single cutaway Neptune baritone guitar shown in this video. If anyone in the Bay area sees this in any pawn shops or on the streets of San Francisco, please let me know. Thanks.

Red Hot Chili Peppers at Civic Center

Here I am, minding my own business trying to interview somebody at the library and there’s this damn concert next door and it drowned out everything. You can’t even hear the interview, just people screaming. Don’t you hate it when that happens?

Anyway, here’s what’s left of the interview….or not

Sausalito Art Fest 2012 – The Yardbirds

The Yardbirds were one of the original rock and roll bands circa 1965 out of UK. They never got the good recording equipment like the Beatles and the Stones did back then > The Yardbirds wiki

This is a tight band and they know their songs. Great to see this brought back to life since the Yardbirds never made it big themselves, yet spawned an entire generation of rock and roll

The Yardbirds, live at the Sausalito Arts Festival, September, 2nd, 2012, recorded at 24 bit – 96khz dvd > direct to MP3
