  1. nice encore.

    Alison Goodson

  2. I agree. and especially if the alternate version of labor was decent. will have to wait and hear duck's audio.

  3. Just want you to know how much I enjoy the deal you do on Twitter. I read it every day. Love the set lists. (especially how you tell what was on the original one). The pics, the one question interviews. EVERYTHING. It is really good. I truly believe the Gourds are one of the best bands out there and I really enjoy reading about them.

    Thanks again,

    Rob from Charlotte, NC

  4. my pleasure, rob. it's always so nice to hear that somebody's actually following along. makes it more fun for me. thanks.


  5. I second what Rob said. Love the Twitter updates!


    John in Atlanta

  6. 2 thank you comments in the same day??? everybody calm down! pace yourself! more seriously, john in atlanta...thank YOU.


  7. My life depends on your updates. I am sending you brownies for Christmas

  8. Ok, no sucking up here- your head is getting too big. I just wanna know what they were soundchecking in that picture with Claude on electric guitar. Balinese?


  9. hey ray, yeah, that's balinese. guy who took the shot sent it with that label. never seen it live myself, but I would guess it's the only gourds tune with claude on electric and kev on maracas.
