Don’t miss Something Blue, Saturday night at ten, on KASU.
Script for Something Blue – Ghost Train
David Nelson Band – Ghost Train Blues >
Welcome to Something Blue. I’m Hairy Larry and I’m playing the David Nelson Band recorded live at the Palm Ballroom in San Rafael, California, on November 6, 2010. What a great show. We just heard “Ghost Train Blues” and coming up next is “Cut and Run”.
You’re listening to Something Blue on KASU, 91.9 FM and streaming on the internet at http://kasu.org. So if you’re out of town you can still hear us on the web. For more about the show log on to the Something Blue website at sbblues.com.
And you can find the David Nelson Band at nelsonband.com. David Nelson plays with the New Riders Of The Purple Sage, a group he helped start. Now he also tours with his own group. They draw on a wide range of influences from Blues and Jazz to Country and Acid Rock. They are often compared to the Grateful Dead but they are not a Grateful Dead cover band. They always bring their own thing to their shows.
Here they are again. Please enjoy the David Nelson Band as they play “Cut And Run”.

IMAGINE – You Dont Know
Now that’s what I’m talking about. It’s Melvin Seals doing the Jimi Hendrix song, “You don’t Know”, one of my favorites. Melvin Seals was recorded live at Quixote’s True Blue on September 26, 2010 in Denver, Colorado. You can find out more about Melvin Seals and his many projects including the JGB Keepers of the Flame and the Melvin Seals Melting Pot at his website, melvinseals.info. He played his Hammond B3 with the Jarry Garcia Band for years and now he’s taking the next step fronting his own group.

IMAGINE – Tell Me Something Good
All right now, that’s Kim Dawson singing “Tell Me Something Good” with Melvin Seals on the Hammond B3. What a great sound. Also guesting at this show was John Kadlecik, guitarist with Furthur.
At The Melvin Seals Information Center you can find music, videos, the show schedule, photos and more. Find it on the internet at melvinseals.info.
Melvin Seals began playing piano in church as a child. When he started playing in bands around San Francisco he migrated to the organ. He played in the Jerry Garcia Band for 15 years and after Jerry’s death he formed JGB to keep the sound going. He also plays with Steve Kimock’s Crazy Engine and The Mix with John Kadlecik. His new CD is called Melvin Seals’ Melting Pot and his live shows are riveting.
Closing the show tonight we’ve got one more song from this fantastic concert, “Long John Blues”.
