Goran, who was playing with Paal Flaata in the south had to take three airplanes to arrive for sound check at Box at approximately five o’clock .. by the way I just found out that this was the first ever show at the Box whiskey distillery.
Big thanks to hostess Katerina and great sound man Thomas
We sound checked for about an hour and a half.. not so much to check… but to rehearse and be ready for the show.
This was special!
Goran and I started out with the song inspired from listening to the Motorola radio when I was young kid… The Real Thing… then it was on to a visit to a train station in the 1940s with mom and dad and my brothers with the song Charcoal Sky..
Over two sets we played lots of things from the new album “A Song I Can Live With” mixed together with some of my favorites from other albums .. several from The Little Prayers Trilogy.
Some of my favorites tonight were “Dance With a Hole in Your Shoe”.. A spirited version of a song of mine that Johnny Cash recorded, “Clean Your own Tables”.. I haven’t done that one very often… It was special tonight .. then “Joan Joan Joan” was so nice… The audience seemed to love the story about Joan and I and our visits to the Japanese restaurant .. and the story about me writing the title song of my new album for Joan.. “A song I can live with”
Wild thing was crazy good tonight ..different than we have ever played it .. very loose and soulful… With the audience singing in from start to finish. Other favorites were songs for prisoners – Solitary and Fuck all the Perfect People.
We ended with everybody clapping along to I wasn’t born in Tennessee … Goran was amazing tonight..
after we said hello to several
