Tuesday, October 23, 2007 - Eli Polonsky

The last 45 minutes of this show featured a telephone interview with musician, producer and author Sid Griffin about his new book "Million Dollar Bash; Bob Dylan, The Band, and The Basement Tapes".

First, some random selections (R = by request):
01. The Freeborne - Peak Impressions And Thoughts
02. Doors - Peace Frog/Blue Sunday/Texas Radio & The Big Beat (R)
03. SuperSession (Kooper & Stills) - Season Of The Witch
04. The Who - Amazing Journey/Sparks

Four covers of songs from "The Basement Tapes" (and one more):
05. Fairport Convention - Million Dollar Bash (R)
06. Peter, Paul & Mary - Too Much Of Nothing
07. Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & The Trinity - This Wheels On Fire
08. Jerry Garcia Band - I Shall Be Released
09. Jerry Garcia Band - Simple Twist Of Fate - (the Dylan original of this song was not from "The Basement Tapes". I hadn't planned to play this, but needed it to fill time while I tried to deal with an unexpected technical problem at the station).

During the interview, I played:
10. Bob Dylan & The Band - Lo And Behold
11. Bob Dylan & The Band - Odds And Ends (the shortest song on "The Basement Tapes", which was all I had time for!)

I'll be back in two weeks with Larry Miller for our annual fundraising show!
Thanks for listening,
Eli Polonsky
