In case anyone is interested in a bit of trivia, the airfield where Lindbergh left Long Island in 1927 is now a shopping mall, Roosevelt Field.

Wow. :(

And I also heard the site of the old Ebbets Field, where the Dodgers played, is now a high-rise apartment building.
Do you know if that's true?

I'm not sure about Ebbets Field. I know the site of the Polo Grounds, where the Giants played before they moved to SF (and the Mets in 1962-63 before Shea Stadium opened) is now an apartment complex.

Where the residents can watch games at Yankee Stadium if they live on the west side of the building. :lol:

BTW, yesterday was the 100th time I've seen Jimmy Buffett. Very appropriate, since the first time I saw him was also at Jones Beach. And further proof that I indeed have no life.

The No DRALS video was a great treat. It's been 17 years since I've seen that. Well, I guess since anyone has seen it.

Yeah, I used to live not far from it. There's a little plaque where home plate used to be, and if I remember correctly, it's called Ebbets Towers or something. (If I also remember correcly, it's a housing project.)

There used to be an ice rink at Roosevelt Field years ago, when it was still an uncovered mall. The rink hasn't been there for probably 35 years. You might be thinking of Mitchell Field, an old Air Force base, part of which is now the campus of Nassau Community College. I think there's an ice rink there.

It was so special to hear that song. I walked over to the theater during the tailgate and heard the sound check of that song and KNEW we wouldn't get Nautical Wheelers for the final encore...

OYSTERS AND PEARLS was beautiful, in a beautiful setting on a perfect day.

THANKS, JIMMY!!

From the Jones Beach INTERMISSION ON RM:

Ride The Glide is a term my friend Allan Weisbeckerused in his classic surf tale IN SEARCH OF CAPTAIN ZERO. It describes that perfect patch of smooth salt water two steps ahead of a crashing wave where gravity is taking YOU for a ride on a very wet magic carpet.

To me Ride The Glide is surfing in the free waters. The wave can be two feet tall or twenty feet tall, but the glide is what you are always looking for...and after many, many years I like to compare the thrill of writing, singing, and performing to that of riding the wave.

When I do I understand what a remarkably long and wonderful ride it has been. Out on the ocean you pray to the surf gods for waves, deliverance, rock relocation and salvation and about a hundred other things that are going through your mind as you attempt to ride the ocean.

On the stage you ride the audiences emotions that are fed, not by weather ??, but by words and music. It is a great symbiotic relationship and personally I'm gonna ride this wave until somebody kicks me off.

So this collection of songs is kind of your musical wave upon which you can ride. I'm not gonna say that you can hold this tin box up to your ear and hear the ocean, but then again, maybe you can.

Maybe the Hokey Pokey is really what it's all about. Maybe that's what we've been doing all along...just Riding The Glide.

Anyway, think of this collection as your own wave. There's NOBODY else on it but you. Now, the sun has set and all there is left to do is Ride The Glide.

August 08, Montauk, New York.

Stay stoked...


Thank you, Jimmy for this. I loved Jones Beach.

So far, but yet, so near
