am endeavoring to be there by 4.30 to see Robert

Anyways thanks to Chuck for sharing his rare and
wonderful recordings, here's all about it from Chuck.

I saw the Necks a year b4 this recording was made
at the same venue and was intrigued/excited
and mesmerized by this group -was it jazz?
Avantguard ??.. that fact that you couldn't
pigeonhole this music was all a part of the deal...
The crowd hushes b4 the start of the set..
The band finds the quiet zone and each member
starts to improvise... resulting in an 1 hour of
something special... you take a break..
and they come back and do it all again.
This recording is set 2 of 2005 gig.. set 1 had me
scratching me my head... The drummer spent 10
minutes taking his sticks out of shrink wrap... ok
its art right, but i saw this guy a year b4
and knew he was shit hot !!!
was it just a bad gig? was a bad hair day?
Break came.. got a beer... set 2 came... bang..
They were in form... drummer Tony spent nearly
45 minutes working his kit all over - magic stuff!!
after the gig the band hangs out and signs cd's etc
and the bass player smiles at me and says
" Tony was in form tonight!"
Truly excited by his own companions effort...
Now that's music!
I'll post set 1 with some art another day..
enjoy this for now...
