(c)1980 David Chadwick

In 1980 for pretty much the whole year as I remember it, a group of us gathered regularly at my mate Liz Tuomi's studio and jammed on DC songs. I think we did about 65 of them. I was quite moved that Dave Murray, the musical impresario of Bolinas at the time who did the chorus and musicals, would devote himself to what was basically a long goalless jam session. He was joined by his mate Susan Goldhaber on bass and some percussion. I remember that her father was something like the only symphony Theremin player in the country - in San Diego. Don Armstrong who later became principal of the Bolinas school played harp and teenager Alan Stone played lead guitar - may he rest in peace. My mate Elizabeth Tuomi was on piano. We had fun but were lacking in discipline, maybe because of smoking so much pot. In November we made a tape I called Fooled by Everything after the first song - with the band dubbed Duck Soup. I was pretty pleased with it but after this tape I decided it wasn't fair to everyone to keep this up, that we'd gotten out of it what there was to get. I was touched that people were disappointed and wanted to keep going but we had other mountains to climb. I missed them all a lot and love to go back and hear us all together.


I'm sure The Way the Wind's True is part of this project but I guess I dropped it in separating the songs. Will put that on the to-do list when back in States - dc, 3-20-11
