Recordings for many of these shows exist. The best one that I have
heard is the Seattle one although acceptable recordings also exist for
the Petaluma show and also San Francisco.
I was at two of those (Vegas and Vancouver) and Warren and his cohorts were
great, everything you could hope for. I particularly recall Matt Cartsonis
playing yin to Warren's yang (or vice versa, I always mix those two up).
Well, perhaps that was technically more of an appearance than a show.
There's nothing like the experience of heading home with about 15 or 20
just-performed Zevon songs jangling around in your head. Fortunately for us,
because of technology, we don't have to rely on just our memories to relive
Speaking of which, I noticed in the BB a while back they were discussing the
always-intriguing interpretation of "Someone should have stopped the fight
and told me. It was him."
I've revealed my interpretation by the punctuation.
Okay--I'm in the mood. I have the above concerts and I'm offering. The
Seattle is better quality, but the Fillmore isn't bad, either. I also have a
really nice Leonard Cohen (thank you B!) from 5-21-93, Zurich, (2 cds).
As always, it would be nice if somebody would/could reoffer...but I won't
leave the unable or unwilling out of this offer. Trades are welcome, too ;-)
I'll do up to 9 concerts--I can do more Zevons if nobody picks the Cohen,
but you are missing a good concert.
