Volume #21, Issue #5


     Whew! I hope you got to enjoy some of the musical activity that took place during the summer of '94. It was like living in concert heaven. The onslaught of great touring acts continues well into the fell, so get out there and rock 'n' roll!

      One lesson was learned this summer-you can't recreate history. The Woodstock anniversary made me realize that as we enter our third decade as professional concert-goers, we're still looking for those inspiring feelings of art and community that occasionally surface.

     Seventy Hot Tuna Heads closed the summer with the first Relix Cruise to Nowhere, featuring special guests Jorma Kaukonen, Michael Falzarano and Pete Sears. Cruisers thoroughly enjoyed two full days aboard the Regal Empress with some of their favorite musicians-a private concert, late night jams, midnight buffets, Jorma's guitar workshop and lazy "daze" by the pool. It was an amazing party. More next issue.

     Due to space limitations, we held back our letters column and Grateful Dead set lists this issue. These columns, along with our incarcerated Deadhead mailing list will appear next issue, which is our Year-End Special. The cover art was done by Philip Grass (Blues for Allah) and we have lots of delightful material to share.

     The warm breezes of summer are behind us and the harsh winds of winter lie ahead. So, kick back and enjoy the colors of autumn.
