    Dave does a little vocal thing right before Ed does Cathedral at the start of the second disc of the US Fest boot. Is this a song that anyone's aware of, or is Dave just free-stylin' and making it up?

    That is an old blues/gospel song. I don't know who wrote it etc. It was also used for the theme song to a short lived tv series "Rock". Out.

    Ed6150, I think we are talking about a different song. Pop in the video and see what Glenn is talking about.
    Sorry about your friend man. Do what you can for him. Out

    Yeah, they do I'm So Glad in the middle of Somebody Get Me a Doctor. At first I didn't like it that much, but now I think it's just amazing.

    I'm So Glad was originally by Skip James whoever that is. Deep Purple covered it on their first album in 1968. I don't have any Cream albums - did they do it studio, live or both?

    It's called "God Bless The Child". It was done by Billie Holiday as well as others. Truthfully, Dave butchers it on the US Festival tape, but that's what makes it so funny!

    Nice call KPL--You gotta love Diamond Dave singin' appacella(accapella?)! He does it on the "I'm so glad" boot(1-16-83),too. Nice lil' ditty intro for Eddie!

    ...Skip James was a bluesman with an eerie falsetto singin' style and crazy fingerpickin'. He recorded in the late 20's or early 30's and then was re-discovered during the blues 'revival' in the 60's and played to large festival audiences up until his death. Robert Johnson borrowed from him a lot. I really dig Skip's tune about his best friend stealin' his lady,"Devil Got My Woman." Skip also had some sweet piano tunes.

    Speaking of U.S. Fest, has anyone ever noticed during "Somebody Get Me A Doctor/Girl Gone Bad/I'm So Glad" there is a small part where Eddie plays a chord progression that I swear sounds just like the first of Panama? If any of you have the "California Calling" boot, it starts right around the 3:45 mark of track 9. Now tell me that doesn't sound like Panama.....I swear it does!
