Got to see him, Luther and Cody in an acoustic trio called Gutbucket. Very laid back, lots of fun. RIP.

Anyone heard the Curse Of The Alphastone record he references in the PSF interview?
yeah, i heard that; it's on the 'spring poems' cd of various stuff he collected a few years back - is good, kinda porno with flailing horns. haven't heard it for a while. do not get the thing upthread about it being perverse that those guys were on stage with him? i was at the hi records night from that season and always regretted not seeing the memphis guys; apparently dickinson started with O HOW SHE DANCES.
anyhow, sad, he was a great guy & real character. one of those guys who could use the word motherfucker in so many different ways, like about a piano part or about aretha franklin but in a nice way

Memory playing tricks -- Gutbucket was DDT playing acoustic, and Daddy Dickinson sat in as a 4th on this particular occasion... I remember Luther finishing a solo on one song and Jim leaned forward and said "Makes a daddy proud..."

listening to Like Flies on Sherbert and Dixie Fried back-to-back is a cosmic experience that enhances my enjoyment of both (somewhat uneven) albums.
