You are correct sir!
Heard it during the Tacoma show from 1993 right when he introduced Quietly Making Noise. :wink:

Lone Palm. Used to have a print of two empty chairs out on a beach. Lost it in the breakup. :x :x :cry: :cry:

I consider this a fun album. Quietly Making Noise just noses out Lone Palm and Fruitcakes. Like the whole album as a matter of fact.

I remembered it from the infamous Buckeye Lake show of 1993 and thought it was a great title. I have never heard why he changed his mind.

In 1995, I had a weekend where I drove to Virginia to see a show (cant remember which venue) on a Friday, then drove back to Pittsburgh picked up the wife and drove to cleveland to see Jimmy at Jacobs Field. Jerry Garcia died that Friday and Jimmy ripped through Uncle John's Band on both sets. Amazing.

In re-listening to this album, I realize how well this album hangs together. So, it's tough to pick a favorite. While I think Vampires is a hilarious song, I'm going to say Love in the Library. I can't explain why but the song speaks to me. Of course, I could listen to the album tomorrow and say something else.

I had to pick Delaney Talks to Statues. In my Parrothead infancy I was still learning the many sides of Jimmy. We were expecting our first child, a girl, and I heard this on RM. I think it was a live version as it didn;t sound quite like Jimmy. I searched the song based on some of the lyrics not realizing the name of the song or even noticing the name Delaney.

NOW our pregnancy up to this point:
We found out we were expecting the day after our first Jimmy Concert.

At one of our Ultrasounds we decided our 2 names to choose from were Delaney or Peyton.

Once I found out who and what it was thats what we named our daughter.

This song symbolizes the relatonshio I cherish and enjoy with my kids. Lucky for us it was a Jimmy song too. :D
The Parrot Dice Lounge kinda like a mirage. Here today and gone tomorrow. You should stop by and say hello when visiting Chicago on tour.

This is probably one of my least favorite albums. There's no one song that really jumps out at me. Definitely not one that I can listen through the whole thing, like Coconut Telegraph.

I picked Delaney Talks to Statues. I'm a fan of all of JB's songs about/for his kids.
