This piece is basically an audio week in review, and it’s always nice when I can let someone else do the work for me. In this case, ScottyB has already written his thoughts on this show, so all I have to do is cut up the audio and I’m done! Furthur next hits the stage on December 30th & 31st at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco.


Fire On The Mountain from the night before:

Artist & Title: Gov’t Mule – Sugaree

I easily could have had this be a “Christmas Jam” edition of Last Week’s Sauce, but I wanted to include the Furthur and Percy Hill tracks. There are tons more recordings of this show from all the artists on both the Live Music Archive and This 14-minute rendition of Sugaree features Jimmy Herring, Jackie Greene and Fred Eltringham. Gov’t Mule next plays on December 30th & 31st at NYC’s Beacon Theatre.

How do you get your band included in Last Week’s Sauce? Easy. Have Jimmy Herring sit-in. I’m a sucker for a guest appearance by Jimmy because I think he is one of the best guitarists alive. At the end of the tune one of the moe. guys says into the mic, “The thing I don’t get is that he just started playing guitar like a year ago.” HA! moe. next plays at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC on January 22nd.


Some video from the set, here is Tailspin:

Our good friend, and longtime Percy Hill aficionado, Stanch, took the trek up to the Stone Church last Friday for their reunion show and wrote a great review about it. Though they ended the night saying, “Thank you! We love you all so much for coming out. We’ll see you all soon!”, we don’t know when we will next see a live Percy Hill show.
