gargoyle 'Elite' jam sessions? Is it OK? (113* d) RE: 'Elite' jam sessions? Is it OK? 06 Jul 99


A great memory...it combined professionals who understood their roots and amatuers who loved to play.

1970 - Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Small nothern college town - backroad boondocks U.S.A.

Encoure, after encoure after encoure. Wonderful. Pure professionalism.

Concert broke up after midnight....each bamd member went with a different member of the community back to the local home neighborhoods. The playing and jamming, and sharing a laughing went on in little pockets behind the redwood curtain until the break of day.

There is no doubt in my mind why the Dirt Band were first Western group invited to "break the iron curtain."
