  1. Gary Hoey covered Hocus Pocus on his 1993 release Animal Instinct, and it's instrumental so NO YODELING!
  2. This album was recorded over the course of 2 days in 1968 for a cost of $13,000. Bloomfield and Stills were never in the studio at the same time.
  3. I am very proud to report that Zack received an award from MIT for "excellence in 6-A Industrial Practice". He was also given a substantial cash "bonus" by Cadence Design Systems for the work he did for them that resulted in a patent and became the basis for his master's thesis. Here's what MIT says about the 6-A program: The 6-A program is a partnership between MIT and some of the most innovative companies in the world. It allows students to pursue a leading-edge industry project while simultaneously working towards the completion of their MEng thesis. This is the 99th consecutive year the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at MIT has offered this special Program. 6-A offers intensive well-mentored educational state-of-the-art internships complementary to classroom education at selected leading edge member companies who have a long-term relationship with the department and who understand that our undergraduates are capable of making a real contribution to their companies. The students typically join the program as Course 6 juniors and seniors, and complete a series of three- and six-month work assignments at their chosen company. Each student is assigned both an industry mentor and a faculty advisor, and the work students complete during their stay at the company is then used towards their MEng thesis. In addition, in most cases, the 6-A program covers the full tuition of the MEng degree as well as competitive salaries during the time the student is at the company. Students receive academic credit for each assignment. This is the only way to receive credit for work done at a company or to use such work to satisfy any academic requirement. 6-A students are able to graduate with their class. More than 2,500 alumni have gone through the 6A program over the years. Many of them have become leaders in their fields, a few examples include : Amar G. Bose – 1952 (Philco) – MIT EECS, Founder Bose Corp. Cecil H. Green – 1923 (General Electric) – Founder Texas Instruments (deceased 2003) Raymond S. Stata – 1958 (Philco) Founder Analog Devices Andrew J. Viterbi – 1957 (Raytheon) Founder QUALCOMM Markus Zahn – 1968 (Raytheon) MIT EECS, Director of 6-A 1994-2015 Vincent W.S. Chan – 1971 (RCA) MIT EECS, Past Director, Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) James L. Kirtley, Jr. – 1968 (Raytheon) MIT EECS William J. Lenoir – 1962 (General Radio) Astronaut Alan V. Oppenheim – 1961 (American Electric Power and General Electric) MIT EECS Thuan Pham – 1991 – (Hewlett-Packard Co.) CTO of Uber
  4. Thanks for sharing your wonderful pics Mark. Zack and I are very jealous as we've never seen a Big Boy in person. Closest we've come is the N & W 2050 at the Illinois Rail Museum. (2050 is a 2-8-8-2 measuring 113' OAL; 4014 is a 4-8-8-4 that measures 132' OAL.) Here's some video of Big Boy 4014 on her first trial run after receiving a frame up rebuild. For a view that shows just how "big" she is forward to 8:10.
  5. David Grisman – mandolin Tony Rice – guitar, violin (6) Darol Anger – violin (1,2,4,6,7), violectra (5) Mike Marshall – mandolin (3,4,8) Todd Phillips – bass (1,5) Eddie Gómez – bass (3,4,8) Stéphane Grappelli – violin (3,8) Buell Neidlinger – bass (2,7) Bill Amatneek – bass (6)
  6. Happy birthday Gary. You would have been 58 today and likely out hiking or riding your motorcycle. Rest in peace my friend.
  7. A live recording from Tower of Power's early days. (They recently celebrated their 40th year in the business and are actively touring.)
  8. Dental torture? Not the way I'd like to spend my birthday, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.... Happy Belated Birthday!
  9. FZ and MOI at their finest (and funniest) with an assist from Don Preston, Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman
  10. This 1966 Blue Note release was recorded in late 1964 at legendary sound engineer Rudy Van Gelder's studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. It features Wayne Shorter (sax), Freddie Hubbard (trumpet), Herbie Hancock (piano), Elvin Jones (drums), and Ron Carter (accoustic bass).
  11. Congrats Signal Man. Hope she brings you many years of musical enjoyment.

    It's actually pretty tasty if you use Duke's mayo. That was Zack's favorite dipping sauce for tater tots.
